CELESTE HEADLEE, HOST:

So we just heard Roxanna Elden take on the myth of the super teacher. And even if the best teachers don't have all the answers for fixing our schools, maybe they can get some help from you. On Wednesday, October 10th, NPR's TELL ME MORE will host a live radio broadcast and Twitter education forum, focusing on issues facing our nation's schools. And leading up to the forum, we've invited educators, parents, reporters, and everybody else to take on the tough issues.

REY JUNCO: Hi, I'm Rey Junco, faculty associate at the Harvard Berkman Center for Internet & Society. And I'm very excited about the upcoming Twitter education forum. Here's a tweet I contributed to the npredchat#. Using Facebook in certain ways can improve student learning.

HEADLEE: We'd like to get your answers about transforming American schools. Join us on Twitter today by using #npredchat and let's begin the exchange of ideas.
