keatonfox Gov: We hope these standards are better than CC. Unsure if we’ll lose No Child Left Behind waiver. Will wait and see.

DataDiva OK logic in 140: CCSS are bad. We can write better standards. While we write them, let’s use old standards so bad we picked CCSS over them.

@kellianglley I’m not sure if TLE changes were part of our NCLB waiver or not…

via Flipboard in reply to kellianglley

@kellianglley altho TLE changes have been co-incident w Common Core, I don’t think there is a specific legal connection.

@angmlittle @JoyouslyMade as U get 2 know me hopefully U will understand I am VERY open to all kinds of ideas, esp those I don’t understand

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to angmlittle

@angmlittle @JoyouslyMade we need many, MANY more current classroom Oklahoma teachers to speak out and not remain silent

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to angmlittle

@angmlittle @JoyouslyMade I have not attacked anyone personally, but I certainly have criticized ideas which are not well informed

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to angmlittle

@angmlittle @JoyouslyMade my intent is certainly not to harass anyone, online or F2F

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to angmlittle

@angmlittle @JoyouslyMade we need to work together and support educational transformation, not merely “reform”

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to angmlittle

@angmlittle as we discussed in the past week, we share a lot of common goals for education reform in Oklahoma @JoyouslyMade

@angmlittle @JoyouslyMade So you are asking me to be silent as a parent & public classroom teacher? I won’t honor that request

@DunnStacie No, @Lori_Dickinson did NOT just” attribute all his success to CC” that is a misrepresentation of what she just wrote

via Mobile Web (M5) in reply to DunnStacie

@DunnStacie The way that high-stakes testing continues to be coupled with educational standards, however, is a HUGE problem

via Mobile Web (M5) in reply to DunnStacie

@DunnStacie No set of standards is going to be perfect, but common core is a step forward on multiple fronts

via Mobile Web (M5) in reply to DunnStacie

@DunnStacie I am far more interested in promoting effective learning & assessment strategies for Ss & Ts, rather than the standards dejure

via Mobile Web (M5) in reply to DunnStacie

@DunnStacie I did and still am considering renaming the project “mapping media to the curriculum”

via Mobile Web (M5) in reply to DunnStacie

@DunnStacie PASS is also focused on minimum standards, & we need to be about exceeding rather than just meeting minimum expectations

via Mobile Web (M5) in reply to DunnStacie

@DunnStacie several reasons, but one of the primary ones is that PASS doesn’t involve any digital literacy requirements for students
