Continuing in our 3-part Connected Educator Month Twitter Chat series, the Getting Smart Team and connected educators engaged in a discussion on “Smart Cities: Talent Development.”

Today’s jobs are different, and this includes educators. As students benefit from innovative education opportunities like blended, deeper, and project-based learning, educators should too. Smart Cities That Work for Everyone highlights seven keys that are crucial to educating and employing citizens. Participants of the Twitter Chat explored one of the most fundamental keys – Talent Development- by examining examples of schools, districts and programs that are leading in innovative professional development for educators.

Couldn’t make the chat? No worries. Feel free to answer questions and share responses with #SmartCE.
