@gcouros: “Summer camp friendships really ARE changed forever now b/c of social media. We CAN remain connected afterwards!”

via TweetChat

@swpax yep. Yet another example of why we need good LEADERS at all levels, in schools & out!

via HootSuite in reply to swpax

@swpax yes but unfortunately, may school admins abdicate decision-making authority to IT in ways they’d never do for finance

via HootSuite in reply to swpax

@gcouros: I totally agree w what you said tonight about sharing vulnerability. “Teacher B-side” videos by @torres21 do this

@gcouros: “You [many teachers] are wasting your time doing the wrong things” [with IT roadblocks]

@gcouros: “When you walk into a classroom IT stuff should just work. Many IT things teachers shouldn’t have to know”

I just noticed your work for @Getting_Smart - let’s chat about that at

@childbkauthor I think the context of what @gcouros was talking about tonight were graphs of student test scores tho

via TweetChat

@woscholar no I don’t know that history - I need a primer :-)

via HootSuite in reply to woscholar

mattBgomez I think @gcouros basically just said more than anything else

via HootSuite (retweeted on 9:48 PM, May 27th, 2013 via web)

@mattBgomez yep - that is a gr8 paraphrase of the message of @gcouros - also via @CurtRees “the importance of culture”

via TweetChat

@gcouros: “You can help people move forward much more effectively when they know & feel they are valued” (context: teachers)

good quote from @gcouros: “Parents send their best kids to school every day”

via HootSuite in reply to woscholar

@woscholar OK I see that link… but is there a chat area? @mattBgomez let’s decide on a hashtag to use for @TechlandiaCast

@woscholar It’s being broadcasted by @ipadSammy - I’m not finding a chat area for the G+ ahngout tho…

via HootSuite in reply to woscholar

@mattBgomez that’s really a great idea. Since @EdCampOKC in Feb we’ve had Oklahoma educators leading a Sunday night chat :-)

via HootSuite in reply to mattBgomez

@mattBgomez thanks Matt! Is there a backchannel hashtag we can use, or another chat option? @TechlandiaCast

via HootSuite in reply to mattBgomez
