Why We Do What We Do
Edchat Interactive is revolutionizing the way we participate in online PD.
Edchat Interactive is live video peer-to-peer sharing of education best practices. It's a discussion, not a lecture.
We provide the means for education innovators to transform education outcomes through sharing their knowledge and techniques with other educators in an engaging environment.
Edchat Interactive is also game-based learning. Please check out the trailer for the Sound of Hunger game, part of the Serious Play Conference, that teaches about the food supply.
Education is the path to opportunity.
We owe it to the kids to continuously improve.
Look over our Upcoming Web Events, and join us. Or Contact Us, and let us know how you'd like to participate.
What is Edchat Interactive?
Edchat Interactive started with Steven Anderson, Tom Whitby, and Mitch Weisburgh.
The three of us saw an opportunity to conduct PD more in tune with the way we learn, and to use technology to bring the skills and knowledge of education thought leaders to hundreds of thousand of educators.
People don't learn just by watching. We need to interact, reflect, and participate. That's our model, in 45-60 minute segments that fit into the busy lives of educators.
