April 9 #edtechbridge chat Topic: Breaking Down the Myths about Teachers and #EdTech Developers

I would like to start by thanking everyone who participated in our first #edtechbridge chat which took place on Wednesday, April 2, 2014 from 6pm - 7pm EST.  If you missed the chat, feel free to grab a large cup of coffee and enjoy the full transcript.  

The last question of our chat last week was "What topics / questions would you like to see addressed in the next #edtechbridge chat?"  One that generated a good buzz, was the suggestion from Scott Freschet (@scottfreschet).

The idea of secrets or myths that exist in this space is a great point for further discussion as both Teachers and Entrepreneurs / Developers are both interested in breaking down the walls and working together.  We have come to realize that we have the same goal in mind, and that is to work together to create better #edtech products to serve our most important clients, our students.  Breaking down any barriers will certainly help us accomplish this goal.

We hope you will join us this Wednesday, April 9th from 6pm - 7pm EST for our second #edtechbridge tweetchat.  The topic for the chat is "Breaking Down the Myths About Teachers and #EdTech Developers"

The tentative list of questions is:

  1. What are the common myths and misconceptions about teachers and edtech devselopers?
  2. What can we do to combat the myths? Change the stereotypes?
  3. What kind of teacher / edtech company would you want to work with?  What would you like this collaboration to look like?
  4. how do we make sure both teachers and edtech developers feel valued in the collaboration?
Please feel free to comment to this post with initial thoughts regarding this week's topic / questions as well as other thoughts you may have about the #edtechbridge community.  We'd also love it if you would share any connections you have already made as the goal of this community is to bring people together!
