@PeterVogel well they just intro’ed Quickoffice in the dev channel for Chomebooks, so it seems it’s still very much in the works

A7: We need more profs in higher ed involved as watchdogs when it comes to data validity for K12 testing

via tchat.io

@MsRossEnglish thanks - I gave that a try, but like tchat.io since it’s the most TweetChat like interface I’ve seen so far

via HootSuite in reply to MsRossEnglish

@Tech4T3achers Hmm. Plz tweet me any links you see on this if you can… I read an article last wk on big FCC eRate changes coming

via HootSuite in reply to Tech4T3achers

We’ve developed a very toxic educational culture when it comes to high stakes testing, & we need a non-partisan gameplan 2 change it

@coach57 yes, autonomy is key. My wife @sfryer is going back in the classroom this year, & the autonomy she’ll have is a BIG reason

via tchat.io in reply to coach57

@dankrutka we definitely should create some collaborative, themed videos about issues discussed here!

via tchat.io in reply to dankrutka

I’m convinced a huge part of the “shift we need” in schools is to more broadly embrace digital sharing when it comes to curriculum

via tchat.io

@Tech4T3achers Do you have an article/blog post link about the eRate changes? I heard some were coming but haven’t read the details

@ChrisParadise both TwitterFall & TweetDeck are solid laptop or desktop browser options…

via Twitterfall in reply to ChrisParadise

@Blankenship_S I’m glad to see us backing out of PARCC - I thought it was WAY to rushed… we need to use those funds elsewhere

via TweetDeck in reply to Blankenship_S

@coach57 OK thanks, I’ll try TweetDeck too…

via HootSuite in reply to coach57

@thnorfar yes I like HootSuite but it’s not as realtime as TwitterChat was, & I like how it auto-inserted the chat hashtag

via HootSuite in reply to thnorfar

@mia_sarx great, thanks - I forgot about TwitterFall - I used it a few years ago for a workshop in Montana & it was gr8

via HootSuite in reply to mia_sarx

I’m a bit lost for tonight’s chat since TweetChat is offline - anyone have similar browser-based client recc?

via HootSuite

@thnorfar not a very respectful & constructive tone… cc @Blankenship_S

@Blankenship_S thanks - I hadn’t seen @DianeRavitch ‘s post about @JanetBarresi pulling Oklahoma out of PARCC wfryer.me/3vr

Blankenship_S I do like performance tasks that allow Ss to complete an in-depth project/task that demonstrate real-world problem solving.

@PeterVogel I’d expect QuickOffice to work on all Chrome browser options eventually, including GAppEDU users. That’s just my opinion tho

via HootSuite in reply to PeterVogel

@PeterVogel from what @KevinCTofel is saying, Google is making Chrome a unifying platform for Android & Chromebook users, & other PC OS’s

via HootSuite in reply to PeterVogel

@PeterVogel I heard about QuickOffice for Chromebook Dev channel users via @KevinCTofel on the Commutist @gigaom podcast. He is very + on it

via HootSuite in reply to PeterVogel

@PeterVogel No but I plan to, I think I can change to the Chromebook developer channel and have access to it now

via HootSuite in reply to PeterVogel

@AppEducationFox yes indeed - I feel the same way today
