@DrMerylAin It would be nice if we could all afford the cost of a Waldorf school education for our children, wouldn’t it?

@DMS_Principal I didn’t actually feel the 2nd one this weekend even tho I’d just landed in OKC, I was in my car

via Hootsuite in reply to Blankenship_S

@DMS_Principal well, I’m no geologist but for what it’s worth… based on what my wife said I think this one tonight wasn’t as strong

The music in @equalman ‘s “Social Media Revolution 2011” video is powerful but doesn’t seem to set the right mood ow.ly/7m5mc

Just felt another earthquake in OKC! Kind of surreal b/c we’re having a very severe t-storm right now too w/ lots of thunder!

@head_geek @jonbecker Thanks for the NYT article link/reference.

@DrMerylAin Do you think it is important for students to learn cursive writing today in school?

via Hootsuite

@DrMerylAin I think you may be (at least in part) making a straw man attack in your article about schools “wholly embracing cell phones”

via Hootsuite

@DrMerylAin What specific schools have you seen or read about that have made student cell phones their main curriculum delivery platform?

via Hootsuite

@DrMerylA What is your source article/citation for your assertion: Some Silicon Valley leaders send their kids to schools without tech?

via Hootsuite

Sounds like @DrMerylAin should highlight engaging pedagogies rather than demonize cell phones huff.to/u1CpR5

via Hootsuite

@jonbecker Could we swap a word in @DrMerylA ‘a article: “Do overhead projectors foster engagement or inhibit it?” huff.to/u1CpR5

@articulatebrian Our local coffee shops at this point are more advanced with open wifi than our @OKCPS board room. But that can change!

via Hootsuite in reply to articulatebrian

@mtmartineau perhaps students do a study on amount of paper consumed each year via school board meeting printouts & costs?

via Hootsuite in reply to mtmartineau

@mtmartineau sounds like you need a parent group to help your board members understand it’s not a laughing matter

via Hootsuite in reply to mtmartineau

@pirwin not sure. Those were the most anti-PD statements I’ve ever heard from a board member anywhere

@JSW_EdTech @networkingnerd that’s a great idea. I understand it’s pretty straightforward to build a info-push app, esp by using RSS feeds

via Hootsuite in reply to JSW_EdTech

@alexinman97 Boy I don’t know… He’s also very adamant that no students should be pulled from any class for counseling at school :-(

via Hootsuite in reply to alexinman97

My 8 year old is being VERY well behaved at tonight’s @OKCPS board mtg - Yeah for iPad videos & headphones!

via Hootsuite

I’m surprised to not see any TV cameras videotaping & broadcasting @OKCPSkcps board meeting tonight. Would be easy & fr@ustream@ustream

via Hootsuite

@mtmartineau That needs to change for sure! It’s a good thing to see all @OKCPS board members tonight using laptops. Parents need wifi too!

via Hootsuite in reply to mtmartineau

Phil Horning at tonight’s @OKCPS board meeting: “I am very opposed to pulling teachers out of the classroom for professional development”

via Hootsuite

@Morris_Phil tonight is apparently not a contentious meeting then :-)

via Hootsuite in reply to Morris_Phil

@networkingnerd we should provide app feedback so it can get better! I want to recommend links to blogs showcasing student work

via Hootsuite in reply to networkingnerd

@rjpirrong This highlights a BIG need we have in @OKCPS: open access wifi at ALL our schools for parents as well as students to use!

via Hootsuite in reply to rjpirrong

In tonight’s @OKCPS board meeting, there is a consent item for supported schools using @CatapultLearn for curriculum mapping w Title2 funds

via Hootsuite

Interesting to note the company behind schoolconnectapps.com for @NormanSchools &a@OKCPSkcps isn’t on Twitter yet

via Hootsuite

No public comments tonight during the @OKCPS board meeting. I wonder how often there are public comments?

via Hootsuite

Kudos to @OKCPS school board & IT staff for adoptboarddocs.com8fG2 paperless/digital agenda & board meeting notes!

via Hootsuite

@networkingnerd I haven’t tried it yet but will. It’s a great idea to offer mobile connectivity for parents, esp for student info sys data

via Hootsuite in reply to networkingnerd

No public wifi is available in the @OKCPS board room for parents & other attendees to use. It would be great to have wifi for meetings!

via Hootsuite

I would like to better understand bond levies & how school finance works a@OKCPSkcps parent

via Hootsuite

@stephaniebice Someone should write a blog post about that question you just asked.

via Hootsuite in reply to stephaniebice

@stephaniebice ,,,had higher initial scores in math (and still higher absolute scores) than GE schools. GE schools showed higher math gains

via Hootsuite in reply to stephaniebice

@stephaniebice good question. No one asked that question at the @OKCPS board meeting. The main question on scores was why Non-GE schools…

via Hootsuite in reply to stephaniebice

At @OKCPS board meeting, they just voted 7-1 to adopt schoolconnectapps.com & fol@NormanSchoolsools in using their custom mobile apps

via Hootsuite

@stephaniebice It looks like the data shown to @OKCPS board members shows increasing test scores with Great Expectations

via Hootsuite in reply to stephaniebice

@stephaniebice Here is the PDF of the Great Expectations elem data in @OKCPS which was shown at the board mtg ow.ly/7lZJs
