@glassbeed @Blankenship_S unfortunately the thinking of some school leaders & IT admins has not moved forward on the filtering issue

SappingtonTony A7- relationships are #1 in education- if used the right way tech can connect people & be a catalyst for collaboration!

@Blankenship_S have you all posted any videos of students demonstrating those uses of Minecraft? I would love to see them!

via Echofon in reply to Blankenship_S

@Blankenship_S A8 using tech as a megaphone for issue advocacy is a higher level of use that many classrooms haven’t reached yet

via Echofon in reply to Blankenship_S

@Blankenship_S A8 honestly I don’t think students at our school have gotten to that level of tech use this year…

via Echofon in reply to Blankenship_S

@glassbeed awesome - thanks. I’ll check it out!

@MPSTechnology amen - that is why I like the metaphor of “tech as an amplifier” for either good or bad…

via Echofon in reply to MPSTechnology

MPSTechnology Q5: Tech is an enhancer either way. Makes the great Ts or lesson great or worse. Use it w/ Purpose and Attitude!.

@bradmcurrie we need to not only help other teachers become connected educators but also help our students become connected learners

via Echofon in reply to TheBradCurrie

@mmebrady @JMSPrincipal yes, I think we still have a long way to go with technology integration in many preservice teacher programs

via Echofon in reply to mmebrady

@glassbeed are you sharing/posting your lessons on a website?

via Echofon in reply to glassbeed

edgeblogger A3: Not as much as they could be. Ts need more trng. It’s no longer acceptable for Ts to say “I’m not very tech.” This must change.

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 8:22 PM, Apr 19th, 2015 via Echofon)

A3 Can students use technology to create a media product about the lesson they can add to their digital portfolio?

via Echofon

A3 Do we have an app on our iPad cart that can help students show their learning & skills in the lesson?

via Echofon

@Blankenship_S A3 Are the websites we need to access/use for the lesson unblocked for students on the content filter?

via Echofon in reply to Blankenship_S

@MPSTechnology A2 I’ve definitely had “experimental uses of classroom tech” go bad or in unexpected directions too!

via Echofon in reply to MPSTechnology

Blankenship_S Never force fit tech. If it’s not supplementing what’s already happening in the room, it will become more a barrier to learning.

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 8:15 PM, Apr 19th, 2015 via Echofon)

I don’t think I’ve ever “forced” tech into a lesson. It’s always used as an instrumental tool to advance our learning goals

via Echofon

A1 early in the year classroom procedures take precedence in lesson planning over either tech or curriculum. Later curriculum leads
