@brophycat you are most welcome! I wish direct download was supported, but at this point Apple doesn’t support it on the iPad :-(
@oueducation What is the the link to your open faculty position announcements? I’m not finding it from your homepage.
@kcwriter I’m an equal opportunity advice giver when it comes to social media: Directors of Communication are welcome too! :-)
@brandtschneider you want to upload student created eBooks & then make a hotlist of links for download?
@acufflink superb, that is great news! :-) Thanks so much for the feedback. Please do complete the CILC eval also!
@kayabernathy Yes please do! I just replied to you email too :-)
@GDhuyvetter probably so! I was definitely thinking about the contrast between today’s iOS games & ‘the old days’ of Battleship!

@ScottElias the app shows you a digital receipt you can show at the door too…
@ScottElias yes! I asked about that! The store rep said they have people tracking who is using the app in the store
@mrhooker that one might prove troublesome with school content filters :-)
@kellycroy now I am thanks to you! :-)
MarsCuriosity Atlas V tanks at flight pressure. Let’s light this candle. I’m ready for launch.

@Tina_Heizman we’ve had many months of sorrows with connectivity at our house, so they acted mercifully & provided it free :-)
@jagill no thanks… I haven’t heard or seen any compelling reasons to go Android at this point :-(
I like this Internet speed test site from AT&amwfryer.me/3H0WU (wish my upload speeds were higher, tho!)
@tonyvincent ok, thanks for the inspiration & confirmation! I really liked the features of that one I guessed it must be what you’re using!
#ds106 so I’m not feeling so smart tonight… :-)
@cogdog I did and I’ll reply… I’m quite unskilled at email at times… A Jan visit to OKC sounds GREAT :-)
@cogdog yo yo :-)
@sherbev thanks, and congrats to you as well! :-)
@tonyvincent what software program are you running for your tonyv.me URL shortener? Open source?

@paulrwood well good! Watching Bevo munch his cud on the sidelines tonight, I couldn’t help but wonder… :-)
@PrincipalJ yes, my 13 year old too. It’s amazing what he’s created & figured out what to do. Lots of problem solving & creativity!
Since we don’t have home cableTV anymore, my dad & I are watching the UT/A&M @ESPN3n @espn3 via his laptop connected to our tv :-)
My son’s passion for @Minecraft is making computing 4 me challenging these days - my laptop is our only home computer with RAM to run it!
Does Bevo periodically get eaten and replaced every few years?
@markwagner I agree the year ahead looks very challenging… I’m asking more than ever: Time for a regular job?
@markwagner we can’t put a price on inspiration or kindness, & you have shared lots of both! :-)

Anyone configured an 1st gen Apple Extreme Basestation for H.323 videoconferencing? I need port settings I think, no DMZ option available
@EdEnthusiast thanks - hopefully we’ll see some policy changes soon
@jgates513 thanks for the tip, slick new design! Why don’t you think Apple will like it?
@JillBromen I think it went well, but time will tell…
@sjbrooksyoung not sure… I wonder if any boards have tried that? It would be very cutting edge…
@sjbrooksyoung the key in those situations from what I’ve experienced is having someone else designated to give voice/share backchannel ?’s
@jgates513 which iPad google app has updated?
@Neilstephenson Helping Rachel get more excited about publishing & being an illustrator is the best part of my eBook writing experience!
@sjbrooksyoung no time provided at tonight’s meeting for questions on that topic
@sjbrooksyoung no I don’t think they would have had time to respond during their portion of the meeting, unless someone gave voice to ?’s
@brandtschneider ok, glad you are making progress…
@sjbrooksyoung in the current board/ presentation format, there is not a way I can see for public comment on specific agenda items
@sjbrooksyoung I’d think we’d see feedback about how confusing the graphs& bar charts were, & how difficult it was to understand main points
@wmchamberlain if you know of other models to look at for teacher/student PD I’d like to read/see them!
@wmchamberlain thanks for the reminder & encouragement. Have you all successfully shared student/teacher PD at your school?
@wmchamberlain absolutely… Including students in PD should be part of basic changes in”how we do business” in our schools
@wmchamberlain I’m working on a feedback letter & PD proposal for a district now…
@brandtschneider have you updated to the latest iOS 5 firmware?
I am going to offer conference breakout sessions & PD next year titled, “Differentiating Assessment & Learning with#playingwithmediaithmedia
@smonmaney exactly. We can’t forget that in today’s climate of high stakes testing/accountability. What matters for kids goes beyond stats!
I’m integrating survey results into my planned “3 allowed minutes” of comments on content filtering for the @OKCPS school board tonight
Thanks to everyone who submitted responses for the urban district content filtering survey today! ow.ly/1AM0DV
Dr. Leon McLean @OKCPS board meeting tonight said he’s worked for the district the past 9 years, 5 different superintendents in that time
“You should ask teachers to specifically identify ways they feel they are restricted in their teaching” Dr. Leon McLean @OKCPS board meeting
I would love to see as much district focus on creative, high quality student portfolios in @OKCPS as we’ve heard about “goal focus” tonight
@acufflink just DMed you :-)
“If you can’t measure it, it’s not a goal” -Dr. Leon McLean, OHI PPT preso during tonight’s @OKCPS board meeting (yep, that’s the mindset)
@Neilstephenson the other dynamic is my 8 year old daughter / book illustrator really digs being able to autograph copies for teachers!
@Neilstephenson when I give away the book at workshops & conferences I include an eBook download code with the paperback
@Neilstephenson a bit, but I know lots of teachers who don’t have ereaders YET. I definitely encourage reading the eBook version!
I’m wishing there was a public backchannel at tonight’s @OKCPS board mtg for Dr. Leon McLean’s OHI PowerPoint presentation
@smeech I’m not going to personally advocate for the maintenance of that “urban dictionary definition”
