We will have two types of Twitter chats during each cycle of learning with Cathy Fosnot.
During the Radio Show
While each broadcast is live, we will be using the #TheMathPod to deepen our learning and share questions with Cathy Fosnot and Stephen Hurley by tweeting comments and questions.
A Few Days After the Live Broadcast
On the Sunday following each broadcast, we will be hosting a follow up Twitter chat based on the learning from that week, moderated by Heather Theijsmeijer, @HTheijsmeijer, of the Rainbow District School Board. The questions will be developed based on the learning presented by Dr Cathy Fosnot, the questions and responses through your tweets during the broadcast, and based on any other shared insights or learning shared to the #TheMathPod or through the comment function on themathpod.ca website. Questions will be posted and shared on the website and the Twitter page, @TheMathPod prior to each chat.
