@stephen_tpk We probably would all benefit from more Kiwi perspectives on social media, however :-)
@stephen_tpk In this case I’m thinking of helping other education leaders in our state understand the power & value of local networking :-)
#OklaEd We need to offer Twitter 101 sessions at every Oklahoma school administrator event, encourage more participation in social media
Wow. Crazy environment for #OklaEd chat tonight - in a BIG tstorm up in KS, power out, had 2 use cellular MiWi & laptop for connectivity :-)
#OklaEd A6 I don’t know enough about the “Lindsey Nicole Henry Scholarships unconstitutional” situation to write a cogent answer
#OklaEd A5 New standards should be less like a laundry list & more focused on skills. Show what you know with media. Shorter / more concise
#OklaEd A5 Like CCSS, our new standards absolutely must include digital literacy: representing & communicating ideas with media
#OklaEd A4 I agree we need to change the narrative: High stakes tests & standards don’t produce great schools or great learning environments
#OklaEd A4 One way to change the conversation is to encourage more Ts & Ss to show their learning via social media / digital portfolios
#OklaEd A2 What is our remediation rate now for colleges in Oklahoma? And why are we assuming all students want to or will go to college?
#OklaEd A2 Are any of our state regents on Twitter? It seems to me we need to help them get on if not, & participate in chats like this!
#OklaEd A2 I thought I read we wouldn’t lose federal EDU dollars as a result, but the funds would be “redistributed.” Is that correct?
#OklaEd A2 I honestly don’t know and would love to hear others give insight into this tonight. I’ve heard we’re not losing $$$ statewide
#OklaEd A1 It seems a bit odd that a higher education state group had responsibility for certifying our K12 standards meet C3…
#OklaEd A1 my understanding is we lost the NCLB waiver b/c our state officials didn’t make the case that PASS meets C3 rigor / guidelines
@shawnhime wow - what a great video, super media literacy / electoral politics comparison
I just installed Privacy Badger, a new tool from EFF to stop companies from spying on your browing habits - eff.org/privacybadger
@eric_sizemore yep & Bill Snyder mentored him well :-)
@KevG You are most welcome :-) thanks for the RT
@HaselwoodMath yes, all the apps are still there, I just removed the duplicates & added 3 more that I’m ordering this semester :-)
@kiboser that sounds great - but I think you got the Twitter ID of the camp host wrong - that profile is a Turkish channel I think
@kiboser those 3D visualization apps look great - I’ll have to check into them! :-)
@kiboser yes definitely, thanks for letting me know I had some duplicates. I did not realize that
@gailrm10 thanks :-)
johnortberg We are what we do. Our actions are not exceptions to who we are, but expressions of who we are.
.@jasonnelsonok hopefully this situation will give us an opportunity to truly chart a different course than the status quo NCLB/RTTT roadmap
@jasonnelsonok Do you think the board understood the time sensitive nature of the review process for the NBLB waiver?

@ahicktiger no but I’ll RT you :-)
“…53% of 1000+ respondents reported knowing “only a little” or “nothing” about CCSS…60% oppose teachers using j.mp/1pcpRxpKBJX
@mentormadness i’ll try, I’m on my lunch break :-)

BluntEducator Things students don’t say:
I loved that 45 minute lecture!
Long homework assignments help me learn.
Can we use less technology?
@amyburvall both of them are great, I found myself saying “YES” out loud more to the first version, so I think I’ll use that one!

@cyrilcompteach I have an older home printer & I’m wondering if I should get a Chromebox to attach to it so it can be on Google cloud print?
@hmccoy0615 You’re welcome! Please let me know what you and your students create with it :-)
@cyrilcompteach awesome! Are you using Google Cloud print at all? I need to get that setup at our house, my wife uses our Chromebook a lot
@cyrilcompteach are you going to use the Chromeboxes in a lab?
