@GlenwoodElemLib outstanding! yes, teachers need to you to be bold & courageous in your public sharing of innovative ideas! :-)

via Twubs

A8: I will start sharing a slide in public presentations about & twitter chats, encouraging educators to connect locally w twitter

via Twubs

A7: Maybe we should discuss doing a much smaller scale @k12online conference just for our state, with short <20 min video presos

via Twubs

via Twubs

DunnStacie A5: It has helped this intrapersonal lady grow her interpersonal intelligence. Gr8 new ideas & challenges me 2 think outside the box!

via Twitter for Android (retweeted on 8:45 PM, Jul 14th, 2013 via web)

@ShawnMcCusker thanks - those articles in @TheEconomist definitely made my blood pressure rise :-( wfryer.me/3w4

via Twubs in reply to ShawnMcCusker

A6: I follow a number of other hashtags besides but don’t regularly join many other chats - I like

via Twubs

A5: The hashtag, community & weekly chat gives a very concrete reason for Okla educators to give Twitter a try / embrace it

via Twubs

@ChrisParadise @coach57 amplifying innovative learning in our schools is SO important! That was the goal of wfryer.me/3w3

via Twubs in reply to ChrisParadise

ChrisParadise @coach57 Ummm…you play sports? ;) I know Clinton because of what you do here, and I’m impressed.

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 8:40 PM, Jul 14th, 2013 via web)

@James409Jason yes but that’s the rub, isn’t it? How do we measure ‘effectiveness’ & help those who won’t get better to leave…

via Twubs in reply to James409Jason

James409Jason @jasonnelsonok @coach57 BUT ineffective Ts should not have job security! Every child deserves a great TEACHER!

via HootSuite (retweeted on 8:39 PM, Jul 14th, 2013 via web)

@coach57 that’s absolutely true for me - when I think of Clinton PS I don’t think about sports, I think 100% about innovative edu

via Twubs in reply to coach57

TParks Q5 I agree w/ @MrsBeck25 Twitter has been my #1 most powerful influence as an Educator - it’s all abt collaboration & communication!

via Twitter for iPhone (retweeted on 8:38 PM, Jul 14th, 2013 via web)

A5: Twitter & specifically has really increased my awareness of innovative educators in our state, & also made @EdCampOKC possible!

via Twubs

ChrisParadise A2: I love the idea of “action step” chats. Let’s celebrate of the things we try and reinvent the things that didn’t work.

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 8:37 PM, Jul 14th, 2013 via web)

Blankenship_S Twitter has given me the opportunity & confidence to engage in meaningful conversations with experts all over the world.

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 8:37 PM, Jul 14th, 2013 via web)

A5: Twitter allows me to ‘hangout with creative minds’ that I wouldn’t have access to otherwise

via Twubs

A5: Twitter continues to provide a ‘constant river’ of not only gr8 edu ideas & links, but also a network to ask ?’s & get help

via Twubs

A4: @teacherman82 yes - ‘celebrating our successes’ is a great way to think about the benefits of using a district hashtag

via Twubs in reply to teacherman82

teacherman82 A4: I’m imagining a school/district celebrating its success by creating a hashtag & posting tweets in the hallways on TVs.

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 8:34 PM, Jul 14th, 2013 via web)

@simplyserina oh that sounds SO great! Have you discussed @shareski ‘s video “Sharing: The Moral Imperative?” wfryer.me/3w2

via Twubs in reply to simplyserina

coach57 A3 as teacher in a classroom we have to stay out of boxes and be differentiated

via tchat.io (retweeted on 8:32 PM, Jul 14th, 2013 via web)

coach57 @jasonnelsonok @Karl_Springer almost all positions are hard to staff in Western Oklahoma. Supers are fighing over student teachers

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 8:32 PM, Jul 14th, 2013 via web)

A4: The #1 benefit of a hashtag IMHO is ‘amplifying innovation & publicly archiving it’

via Twubs

@simplyserina what do you mean by “PD on SM sharing?”

via Twubs in reply to simplyserina

@dankrutka that is fantastic! I have absolutely loved & benefited from the twitter use of @FoundationOKCPS the last few months!

via Twubs in reply to dankrutka

A4: Has anyone run into problems with a district hashtag getting ‘hijacked’ by trolls? I know there are lots of fears about this

via Twubs

A4: The benefits of a statewide hashtag can go local with a district hashtag, but I’d guess it’s harder to develop a core to start

via Twubs

A3: Maybe we could invite some teacher leaders involved with programs at colleges like @UCOBronchos to join

via Twubs

A3: What are we doing specifically to invite the participantion & voices of educators in @OKCPS & @TulsaSchools ?

via Twubs

A3: So a key element to avoiding ‘groupthink’ is making constant efforts to be inclusive & invite diverse voices / perspectives

via Twubs

@Blankenship_S maybe part of chats can be ‘action steps’ and there can be a way for people to report in on things they do locally

via Twubs in reply to Blankenship_S

A3: I think a big challenge for us in is that we have mostly rural districts in our state, but also BIG challenges too

via Twubs

A3: We should think big. At some point we could discuss ways to amplify within mainstream media channels: TV, newspapers, radio

via Twubs

A2: We could also use to introduce some of our local school board members to the power of Twitter & edu innovation & collaboration

via Twubs

A2: I’d like to see us use to engage with current Oklahoma legislators & open their eyes to examples of + edu innovation

via Twubs

A2: The work I’d like to see contribute to is building a supportive constituency & political roadmap for indep of parties

via Twubs

@coach57 maybe we should have an entire on the subject of teacher pay & why 744 failed a couple years ago

via Twubs in reply to coach57

A2: @coach57 I agree, public sharing is SO important with social media & provides a shared channel to power that sharing

via Twubs in reply to coach57

@MrsBeck25 I agree, that’s a good way to say it: More folks in gov’t & elsewhere (press) may pay attention to us ‘together’ in

via Twubs in reply to MrsBeck25

A2: Getting more school administrators using Twitter & being influenced by innovative peers using Twitter can have HUGE implications

via Twubs

A2: There is definitely good potential for us to use our for issue advocacy as things come up, like legislation

via Twubs

@coach57 Do you ask teachers in the application process about their use of Twitter now?

via Twubs in reply to coach57

A1: is making the power & value of Twitter / social media collaboration much more visible for all edu constituents in our state

via Twubs

I’m using @twubs as my Twitter chat client tonight for the 1st time, liking it so far!

via Twubs

teacherman82 A1: A statewide PLN connects teachers who are often isolated in their classrooms & schools. More learning & relationships.

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 8:10 PM, Jul 14th, 2013 via web)

A1: I have really enjoyed reading regular blog posts from members/participants like @James409Jason @TParks

via Twubs

@simplyserina yes, getting more authentic audiences for students is a gr8 idea - similar to project!

via Twubs in reply to simplyserina

A1: Introduces more educators in our state to Twitter & hashtags to uses them at conferences!

via HootSuite

@swpax both of yours the I TB version? Any problems with them so far?

via HootSuite in reply to swpax

@Lori_Dickinson I like the Seagate version better tho, it’s $10 more but they offer an optional lightning connector, faster than USB 4 Macs
