This would be relevant for teachers in schools that:
- implement MYP and DP
- don't implement MYP but do feed into DP
- are interested in high school transitions

Note: Stephen's breakout session at the #IBAPC2013 on Sat Mar 23 will be on the same topic. The resources will be posted here.
It would be great to provide some useful material to contribute to Stephen's talk on Saturday!

Following the chat, tweets using the #MYPChat hashtag will be Storified below.
