1 of the best parts of tonight’s #SOTU was seeing members of Congress in the same room, listening together. They should try doing that more.
#SOTU More disappointing & empty rhetoric on education policy tonight. Worship of high stakes testing continues in the USA (sadly)
@JimTiffinJr yes, I’d love to hear more about what you’ve learned about student blogging :-)

@SamPatue I have a screencast I’d like to liven up with a digital puppet overlay. Is there an iPad app for that? Import video as background?
@zgilbert next time I visit with Johnny Ive I’ll pass along the story of your troubles…
@MsMagiera thanks for the reply & recommendation - we may go with $5 cheapies at this point tho…
KarenLewisCTU Encourage parents to run for Local School Councils across the city. The only democratic institution not completely smashed by “reform.”
@zgilbert that is not asking a lot :-) I hope it starts working for you…
@JenaiaMorane I agree
@JenaiaMorane I think education will become a true priority when we replace the corporate edu-reform agenda with constructive alternatives
@zgilbert what do you mean? (Priority given to phones now over laptops?)
@cogdog excellent - thanks for sharing this!!!
@djakes is there a good cheesecorn shop nearby? If so, perhaps all is not lost…
@zgilbert ah, but there is your trouble - can you opt to run a Mac rather than Win7?
@JenaiaMorane thanks for sharing the link to that review!
@CuttingEdgu I am glad to learn about your podcast & look forward to more episodes :-)
