@_jcksn Are you maintaining a WordPress site anymore? I’d like to share the link with others - Is @fallcreative offline?
GCFLearnFree is a GREAT website with over 700 free video lessons, esp good for career tech / secondary tech courses wfryer.me/1ge
@Don_Jacobs I agree. I wish I’d heard about it last year. Tonight was the 1st time I’d heard. Hopefully we’ll get that board policy changed
@Don_Jacobs no, they were suspended for simply using their phones at school apparently

My takeaway from that last article link = #ccss will drive schools to go 1:1 for the wrong reasons (high stakes testing)

@dphillips51 I haven’t, I’ll check it out. Thanks
@KansasNana outstanding! Thanks so much, Alex will be thrilled :-)
@dphillips51 I think that’s certainly part of the story, particularly in industries like video rentals, books, music industry, etc.
@mgerbrick sounds good - I need to give Aviary Audio Editor a try myself. Do you have links to an Scratch projects created with its audio?

@classroom_tech that’s great to hear, glad those materials were useful & well received. thx :-)

@techyturner sadly we’ve had some obscene heat in OK this summer & last. Not quite AZ but it’s been feeling close!
@techyturner well that’s better than the 117 I think you all hit recently… “relatively” cooler, I guess!
@audrey_nay I consider Tweet Nest 1 of my most valuable “information traps” now. I rarely use social bookmarks anymore, I tweet instead :-)
@audrey_nay yes, Tweet Nest has a search box. It’s install procedure is similar to a self-hosted Wordpress setup, a bit geeky but doable!
@DanAgins some folks are more prone to see skin color & highlight it, I guess.
@techyturner indeed - the rain is just starting to fall now. We need it!!!!!
@DanAgins I actually had the same thought before I RT’ed - I should have sent a MT, definitely unnecessary to highlight ethnicity
H/T @bobsprankle who inspired me to request a Kindle Touch for my birthday this year, I am LOVING it! Why? No Twitter apps to distract me!
@judithway thanks for your reply :-)
@colegioflama sadly few of our school board members & administrators feel that strong sense of urgency to change :-(
@grabe in the long run maybe, but I think the key difference is Apple’s App Store. People make impulse buys for 99¢
@audrey_nay MT means “modified tweet” - when someone adds extra commentary or makes other changes when re-tweeting :-)
@mgerbrick Have you played with Hokusai on your iPad yet for audio podcasting? If so I’d love to hear your thoughts/experiences
