@jgates513 thanks for the tip, slick new design! Why don’t you think Apple will like it?

via Hootsuite in reply to jgates513

@JillBromen I think it went well, but time will tell…

via Hootsuite in reply to JillBromen

@sjbrooksyoung not sure… I wonder if any boards have tried that? It would be very cutting edge…

via Hootsuite in reply to sjbrooksyoung

@sjbrooksyoung the key in those situations from what I’ve experienced is having someone else designated to give voice/share backchannel ?’s

via Hootsuite in reply to sjbrooksyoung

@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!

via Hootsuite in reply to Neilstephenson

@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

Comments on Internet Content Filtering for @OKCPS school board : icin.ch/6SHRc

via Cinch

@sjbrooksyoung in the current board/ presentation format, there is not a way I can see for public comment on specific agenda items

via Hootsuite in reply to sjbrooksyoung

RT @wmchamberlain: Twittersphere, have any of you or your districts invited students to PD sessions? @wfryer & I would love to ktuff

via Hootsuite

@sjbrooksyoung I’d think we’d see feedback about how confusing the graphs& bar charts were, & how difficult it was to understand main points

via Hootsuite in reply to sjbrooksyoung

@wmchamberlain if you know of other models to look at for teacher/student PD I’d like to read/see them!

via Hootsuite in reply to wmchamberlain

@wmchamberlain thanks for the reminder & encouragement. Have you all successfully shared student/teacher PD at your school?

via Hootsuite in reply to wmchamberlain

@wmchamberlain absolutely… Including students in PD should be part of basic changes in”how we do business” in our schools

via Hootsuite in reply to wmchamberlain

@brandtschneider good, let me know if that fixes your iPad @voicethread crash issues. :-)

via Hootsuite

@wmchamberlain …your question encourages me to include a mixed student/teacher PD model, ESP for using &achup !

via Hootsuite in reply to wmchamberlain

@wmchamberlain I’m working on a feedback letter & PD proposal for a district now…

via Hootsuite in reply to wmchamberlain

@wmchamberlain no but we have talked about that for @storychasers workshops (haven’t done it yet)

via Hootsuite in reply to wmchamberlain

@brandtschneider have you updated to the latest iOS 5 firmware?

A great holiday buy for the lovers in your life: The iPhone Lens Dial ow.ly/1AM2AY via @GuyKawasaki

via Hootsuite in reply to GuyKawasaki

@wmchamberlain absolutely - encouraging a wider use of media options for student learning & assessment is a key focusedia !

via Hootsuite in reply to wmchamberlain

@brandtschneider how many photos/videos are currently in your iPad photo roll? How many are you importing into a single iPad @voicethread ?

via Hootsuite

I am going to offer conference breakout sessions & PD next year titled, “Differentiating Assessment & Learning withithmedia

via Hootsuite

@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

Dr. Leon McLean @OKCPS board meeting tonight said he’s worked for the district the past 9 years, 5 different superintendents in that time

via Hootsuite

“You should ask teachers to specifically identify ways they feel they are restricted in their teaching” Dr. Leon McLean @OKCPS board meeting

via Hootsuite

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

via Hootsuite

@CherylDoig I’d need to be able to read it to use it. PDF version in tonight’s @OKCPS board mtg is too fuzzy to read ow.ly/1ALSKE

via Hootsuite in reply to CherylDoig

“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)

via Hootsuite

@Neilstephenson the other dynamic is my 8 year old daughter / book illustrator really digs being able to autograph copies for teachers!

via Hootsuite in reply to Neilstephenson

@Neilstephenson when I give away the book at workshops & conferences I include an eBook download code with the paperback

via Hootsuite in reply to Neilstephenson

@Neilstephenson a bit, but I know lots of teachers who don’t have ereaders YET. I definitely encourage reading the eBook version!

via Hootsuite in reply to Neilstephenson

I’m wishing there was a public backchannel at tonight’s @OKCPS board mtg for Dr. Leon McLean’s OHI PowerPoint presentation
