@mguhlin here’s the real problem, Miguel… You’re not using an iPhone. Seriously. Come to light, young jedi. Your light saber awaits :-)
I agree 110% :-) RT @courosa: Do you know what’s awesome? Home.

@jstepheng thanks, it was fun :-) Great to be back in NH & the northeast. Great venue for the meetup!
@schierholz you might directly contact Twitter about that unauthorized NASA account. They can de-activate it for you
@sheila_A thank you for your help tonight!
@MariaK yes, me too but I’m so excited & happy for your family!

@Lizzie_McD excellent!!! I’m so glad to hear & see Grimace is still around! He’s a good fellow :-)
@JimTiffinJr yes, he showed them to us but I don’t know if he published them. I’ll try & find out if he has a blog
@staceyfranks it just runs the Chrome web browser, so if visual python can run in Chrome… yes. If not, no.
@digitalroberto iPad is awesome & I love it, but it’s still a baby-2nd generation device. You have to ask: What do I want kids to DO & make?
@digitalroberto …A big question iPads vs other options is: do you want your kids typing on a keyboard? I think 1:1 projects need keyboards
@digitalroberto …great a choice as I thought they’d be. Both iPads & Chromebooks are malware free at this point
@digitalroberto …I naively thought 2 years ago netbooks would be a big deal. For multiple reasons (including malware) they’re not as..
@digitalroberto …from an IT standpoint, a Google Chromebook absolutely is a different ballgame in terms of support requirements
@digitalroberto I need to write more than 140 characters to answer that question, so I’ll write a post soon on it with more…
@DustinJohnson21 I’m going to get one for home use, because 90%+ of the time my kids are just in Chrome, online anyway
@DustinJohnson21 For schools without laptops & 1:1, a Google Chromebook is an attractive device for student learning for many reasons

@timstahmer yes, that’s probably a good summary! It’s definitely not organic or “health food!”
@JessicaDembo Was it someone actually dressed up as Grimace? I was thinking the same thing too… my kids don’t know him
@EurekaTeacher I’m afraid so! I haven’t seen him and his gang for years :-(
@cpriest …that would be a great topic for someone to tackle with academic research, if it hasn’t been already!
@cpriest We have a 2 week fall break for school in Oct… you think you can arrange for the weather next year to be this nice again?!
@cpriest yes, it’s WONDERFUL to be back in Maine :-) Both my girls were keen to come too but couldn’t… maybe next Oct!
@room214 …and most schools don’t have the networks and cloud-based curriculum / skill set to successfully support BYOD now
@room214 I think the future is BYOD with K12 secondary schools looking more like college campuses. BYOD is very messy tho…
@khrista_lou doesn’t that describe basically every politician who has voted for education policies in the last decade? :-(
@khrista_lou well that needs to happen independently of technology needs. I’m sick of politicos working to deprofessionalize education
Historical maps which tell a story can be great to use as overlays in Google Earth in the classroom #gti2011
Dogged persistance in analog K12 education is educational malpractice #gti2011
