Learn and connect through Twitter! Join the Slow Chat 3/21-3/24

There is an upcoming Twitter chat with Arlington ISD, which will be Mon.-Thurs. 3/21-3/24! Twitter chats are great ways to connect with others and share ideas about teaching!

We invite all College of Education students to consider joining! It’s a great way to learn and preservice teachers are welcome to join, as well!

The hashtag is: #arlingtech.  Also, use the hashtag #UTACOEd to let others know you are affiliated with UTA’s College of Education! J
