@thornet it was great - made me ready for another! So eclectic & diverse - lots of passionate makers!
@gormang it’s an idea we need to keep presenting, and seeing if students will present. If elected officials refuse, what does that say?!
@jsprfox thanks :-)
@joan_gibbons so glad to be able to share some ideas today at your school :-)
@kbgator89 thanks - it was fun! I hope so too :-)
@spwfla thanks for the shout-out :-)
@LynnHillFord I’ll be there :-)
Today is the first day I’ve ever had a school board member attend one of my technology workshops! It was great!!! (I’m in Stuart, Florida)

We need to start a list of the active Oklahoma legislators who have joined in a Sunday #OklaEd chat, & encourage more to do so!
A5 Who has a good link/post I can read/share summarizing the issues around OAM? #OklaEd
A3 I heard our science EOI cut scores were raised contrary to the Ts committee’s reccs. True? Article link? #OklaEd
A3 We need to push to have every OK legislator take a state mandated test each year, w/ results published openly #OklaEd
A2 Assessment is multi-faceted & we must stop pretending that the purpose of school for Ts & Ss is taking standardized tests #OklaEd
A2 We absolutely need to change course statewide with respect to high stakes testing. We need an alternative legislative agenda #OklaEd
Ugh, sorry for the spelling error… “semantics” #OklaEd
maybe that should have been “are” not “is” … #OklaEd
A1: CCSS (without the testing elements) is a + step forward for digital reading, writing, communiation & literacy #OklaEd

@nnorris yikes! Good luck with that! What mobile device manager solution are you using? You using it with Apple’s Configurator?

just learned about Tulsa Mini Maker Faire TOMORROW thanks to the Mozilla “Maker Party” event calendar j.mp/18xzu3F We’re going!
@AaronHolls Google Sites would definitely be a great place to start
@AaronHolls I don’t see it as either/or. If you’re teaching web design, students need to learn about wikis & CMS options like WordPress
@coachrobertsj so what exactly does a “Strategic Design Coach” do? :-)
@rwootenits excellent :-)
@Kenya75 Steve’s life was definitely a cautionary tale at the same time, however…
Just saw the Steve Jobs movie at our $2 theater. Really enjoyed it, tho it ended too soon… as Steve’s life did. I’m still a true believer.
I’m really enjoying the iTunes Radio station “Falco Radio” #flashback
@techsavvyteach ok I’ll file that away… good to know!
@techsavvyteach is a snickers your choice or would you like something else? :-)
@techsavvyteach excellent :-)
@JustAndreaLynn yes absolutely - that is really the core / root issue & question…
@mrrobbo gr8 - thanks! You are my #1 teacher app creator hero :-)
@techsavvyteach wow - awesome! Thanks so much for the heads up & screenshot :-)

@ScottMc_PhD what was the full context of that quotation? In my experience stories are generally the best communication vehicles…
@taf1958 me either. Not a copperhead tho from what I could tell. He was an angry little fellow tho!
@rwootenits I think we’ll do 1 show together & I’ll bring some scripts they can optionally use - then they’ll choose topics for group shows

@KayFloydForHD88 I really think we need to articulate an educational reform agenda for Oklahoma that is not focused on high stakes testing
@KayFloydForHD88 yes, reduced budgets are hurting, & NCLB/RTTT reforms have really shifted the focus away from creativity / fine arts :-(
