#UKEdChat Session 396 – Thursday 22nd March 2018
The classroom is one of the most dynamic social locations one can find. Each individual brings so much with them into the classroom and leaves a slightly different person than which they came. The interplay of myriad interactions between the pupils, teachers and others is a carefully choreographed dance of directed by the educator conducting and providing the learning opportunities. At the centre of all of this is communication and this is what we will discuss in this UKEdChat session.
