@sherbev great list of sites from Kirk in that podcast! Has he created a linked list of those somewhere?
@nctplarry thanks Larry :-)
@bmurray13 we probably recorded about 30 takes to make 7 separate recordings, so we needed something with fewer clicks than GarageBand

@MarzanoResearch thanks for the RT :-)
@teachernz We still do, of course, need to improve & transform our schools. The ‘sky is falling’ rhetoric is rarely presented in context tho
@teachernz yes, definitely. A lot of the school reform “warnings” are repetitions & elaborations on “Nation at Risk” from 1983… sad
@budtheteacher excellent - thanks for the share :-)
@OffTheTwuff maybe so… it definitely sparked a response I wouldn’t have expected…
@TechKnowTopia that’s true! Hopefully she’s the beneficiary of writing’s inherent value in that case…

@ltveggie For a school principal, I must say your Twitter avatar & background photo is quite attention getting! :-)
@teachernz well, you’re in good company. I’m sick of hearing politicos & pundits in the U.S. throw our schools under the bus too…
@ClaudiaSwisher you are most welcome :-)
@jabbacrombie I’d reckon not too… :-)
@timholt2007 ok great! :-)
@lindseybp glad you found that screencast useful! :-)
@whittclass Thanks for letting me know - it was a domain renewal issue. I’ve renewed, so it should be back up/live later today. Sorry!

@budtheteacher do you have an index page where you are sharing class blog links? What blog platform are your teachers liking best these days

courosa Profs should not make their own textbooks required texts, even if it’s the best out there. It’s exploitation. Give them a free option.

@BethStill It’s interesting to hear our presenter (from NE) present that as “what everyone is staying” - not sure who has the pulse of that

@coachpeterson I disagree with that blanket statement about ‘verbatim note-taking’ - I think it’s an important process for my own learning
@GDhuyvetter I don’t know but it would be a great climate / biology question to explore!
