Hello Global Classroom community! I am honored to be here and hope you can all help me out with this new adventure I’ve decided to embark upon.
Being able to participate in #Kinderchat and other educational Twitter chats has changed my life as a teacher. I have never had so much professional development, resources, ideas and collaboration at my fingertips. Believe me, I was one of the most hesitant to take on Twitter and had a hard time believing how it could help me as a teacher. Now that I’m in it, I can’t imagine teaching without it!
Here is my problem, I am in Asia and most of the Twitter chats I would like to participate in, happen on the other side of the globe = time zone issues. I’m usually teaching when most of these chats are occurring.
So, what is Project #Kinderchat Asia?
This is my attempt to gather early childhood teachers in Asia who want to share ideas, discuss issues, compare notes, collaborate and connect classrooms. Interested? Keep reading.
I realized that I know a number of AMAZING early childhood teachers around Asia, but very few are on Twitter. So far I’ve been unsuccessful at getting them to sign up, even when they have expressed interest. So, in an effort to give that gentle nudge, I’m going to break the process down into smaller steps. Today, I only want you to do three simple things.
(If you are interested and are already on Twitter, skip to step 3)

THAT’S IT! I’m going to see if I get enough responses, then I will reveal the next steps on how to start getting involved in the world of Twitter and #Kinderchat in hopefully two weeks.
