@kmilleridaho I’ll pass that along to Rachel too :-)
@kmilleridaho I am SO thrilled to learn that sharing Scratch last summer at DENSI helped inspire you to share it with your students this yr!
@kmilleridaho excellent! :-)

@MDiffenbaugh I’d love to swap ideas about sharing Scratch skills, esp encouraging students to share Scratch with other students & teachers
@MDiffenbaugh Very cool that 3rd graders are the “Scratch Experts” & sharing/teaching your 5th graders!
@MDiffenbaugh That is GREAT! I’d love to hear/learn more about how your students are using Scratch & teaching others how to use it!
@shudson71 you are most welcome :-)
hinotewailer Those who say it can’t be done should stop interrupting those of us doing it.
techsavvyteach It is so obvious that Common Core could really do some great things for kids… if we let it.
@shudson71 yes, I thought I read “communist” the 1st time I saw their podcast title too!
Just shared this Scratch curricular example: Interactive Water Cycle wfryer.me/228

@rmbyrne hey enjoy NH! They have a great state Edtech conf! :-)
@JSW_EdTech we could start next week. What’s better for you if we meet at 7 pm online?
@JSW_EdTech I agree - I’m thinking we could plan via Google Hangout meetings. Can you ask the group if Tues or Thurs nights would be better?

@sjciske sounds a bit like ghost hunters. We’ll keep our eyes peeled here in central OK for sasquatch :-)
@sjciske if Bigfoot lives here I’m sure he’s in eastern Oklahoma :-) What did the show suggest?

@meferguson yes I thought that was cute too. Maybe a bit of a stretch when the airplanes started following the hero… but I still bought in
@meferguson In addition to seeing Lasseter’s name on the credits I also felt the “Pixar touch / fingerprint” was evident :-)
@meferguson thanks for that confirmation!
@EdTechSandyK thanks very much :-)

@dwalke9 oh gosh you are right - thanks for the correction!
@rgesthuizen yep, you’re probably right that will be in the next one
@MyWeb4Ed I’ve read several reviews by train commuters & others who just love the mini’s 1 hand reading capability. I think I would too…
@rgesthuizen what do you think iPad Mini v2 will have besides faster processor & thinner design? I don’t consider it a 1st gen device
fzzxtchr Here’s a fun tip: when you get old and unhappy, don’t make other people unhappy with you.
@mr_rcollin Ii think I heard vague rumors about some Oklahoma boys getting together for a quick game today… :-)
@dlaufenberg enjoy Hong Kong! Are you going to go on an evening “junk boat tour” & watch the laser light show at night in the harbor?!
I was able to use an iPad Mini briefly tonight for the 2nd time at an Apple Store. I really like the form factor. Not buying 1 yet tho…

@mrdatahs Our edu policies, however are very regressive & serve corporate testing/curriculum ends much more than family/learner/community
@mrdatahs thanks for the gr8 post - fortunately there are many teachers who support the goals you articulated.
@brandtschneider this is probably the kind of high bandwidth / synchronous apps Google will love showing off on its Google fiber connections
@brandtschneider that might be true… But some really incredible creative tools / platforms have come out of Google not focused on ROI
@brandtschneider ike videoconferencing quality & performance might be based on lowest common denominator/participant w slowest connection
@brandtschneider…on a LAN could be a good way to explore possibilities & eliminate / minimize bandwidth constraints
@brandtschneider depends on purpose & context… The video as certainly portrays best use as place-shifted collaboration. I’d think testing
@brandtschneider hmmm… I just saw that, haven’t tried it yet. Have you used in on a local LAN yet?

@mr_rcollins but the plots & gameplay of many “old skool” game titles are still compelling for “old timers” :-)
@mr_rcollins that surely explains a lot about why I enjoyed “Wreckit Ralph” so much this week. Stunning how far game animation has come
@mr_rcollins along with the original “Adventure” & “Yars Revenge” River Raid was 1 of my all time fav games of youth :-)
