Welcome to International Educator Chat #IntEdchat!

International Educator Chat and the hashtag #IntEdchat on Twitter was founded on May 22nd 2013 by me, Brett Petrillo @BrettPetrillo.

The chat was created to provide weekly collaboration, and focus on the unique needs of international educators across the globe.

I’m hopeful that international educators will choose to collaborate during #IntEdchat by sharing ideas and resources with others as well as concerns they may have while they travel the world as international school teachers and administrators.

Experienced international educators are encouraged to take part in the chat to support and mentor individuals new to the international school environment.

Here’s some important International Educator Chat info:

  • The chat is on Twitter from 6pm-7pm Beijing time, Bi-weekly beginning on Wednesday May 29, 2013.
