Join @PCrooks_VAPA and arts education experts from across the state for a Twitter Chat every Wednesday from 4 to 4:30 p.m. We are growing a statewide virtual professional learning community for educators, artists, and others passionate about arts education. Let’s chat about the new state arts standards, best practices, and the great things happening in your classes.

How it works

  • The chat facilitator will ask questions (Q1, Q2, Q3, and Q4) to get the conversation started.

  • Anyone can answer using the #CaArtsEdChat and starting your tweet with A1, A2, A3, or A4 so everyone knows which question you're answering.

  • Like someone else's answer? Let them know with a like or a reply.

  • The facilitator will be retweeting and answering follow-up questions from participants.
