edgeblogger A6: I’m not sure what the quote means either. I do know is that innovation is cheap and can transpire w/o tech. Just need open mind.

bridgestyler A5: Reformers feel that change happens overnight, it simply isn’t reality. True student change is a marathon, not a bumper sticker.

bridgestyler A6: I don’t understand why we’re always about cutting costs on Ss. Innovation simply opens more doors, not as simple as cutting $$.

A6 I don’t think I understand the question well. How does the Internet bring “traditional savings?” MOOCs & online EDU?

kennethdward A5 to say we can’t do better is to say we need to find a new job. It’s never good enough for our kids! Keep pushing!

.@nancy_nwilliams Amen. EDU is the ONLY secular hope children of poverty have to beat the odds & twitter.com/nancy_nwilliam…

via Twitter Web Client

nancy_nwilliams A5 I disagree. Education is the only hope most of my S’s have to escape poverty. We cannot be a great nation without public schools.

A5 1 of our most important goals as educators should be to differentiate learning experiences to meet individual student needs

via tchat.io

A5 We need to dispense with the fallacy that there is or will be “1 way” to standardize/deliver instruction to meet all needs.

via tchat.io

grendelrick A5 All things are impossible to optimize. Continuous improvement should be our goal individually, and as a system.

A4 We need to do much more work celebrating/amplifying innovation & innovators in our classrooms. Both inside & outside our schools

via tchat.io

drewprice11 a4: I think the amount of traffic on these chats is evidenced of how innovating is

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 8:35 PM, Dec 11th, 2016 via Twitter Web Client)

grendelrick A4 Anyone who thinks hasn’t seen innovation in 150 years isn’t paying attention. We’re more innovative & student-centered than ever.

MPSTechnology A4: Bull-hockey pucks! lack of innovation is only due to lack of inspiration & imagination. Lots of past/present Ts have both.

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 8:34 PM, Dec 11th, 2016 via Twitter Web Client)

A4 Education & learning writ large (bigger than formal systems) is currently undergoing the largest systemic change since Gutenberg

A3 Educational innovations are all around us. “The future is here, it’s just not evenly distributed” (William Gibson)

via tchat.io

A3 The most powerful way to “flip your classroom” is to help students create short videos which teach key curriculum concepts :-)

via tchat.io

A3 I definitely use YouTube videos constantly to learn. I also like to share tutorials on YouTube, including narrated sketchnotes

edgeblogger A1: Educating all children is an extremely difficult proposition and requires investment from everyone, not just schools.

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 8:16 PM, Dec 11th, 2016 via Twitter Web Client)

A2 Folks who have not taught in the classroom sometimes oversimplify the challenges of teaching, as well as “the solutions” we need

via tchat.io

nancy_nwilliams A1 It is very discouraging for me to think there are those who believe our problems are beyond solution. Our purpose is to teach all

via Twitter for iPad (retweeted on 8:12 PM, Dec 11th, 2016 via Twitter Web Client)

A1 EDU can’t be “fixed” completely any more than health care or medicine can be. We can always improve tho & that’s what pros do
