Aug 1, 2015

00:03 - @plnaugle(Paula)
So many ways to communicate with parents today - email, IM, Remind, website etc.

00:24 - Tim Sullivan
for sure, new world...

00:38 - @plnaugle(Paula)
It's great to be back to Classroom 2.0 Live.

03:02 - Peggy George
sorry for my hoarse voice today! Too much talking!!

03:12 - Peggy George
Hi Becky! Welcome!

03:35 - Peggy George
I know how important it is for us to have lots of alternatives for communicating with our parents!

03:46 - Peggy George
meet them where they are... :-)

04:02 - Peggy George
that sounds like a great site! Milennial Moms :-)

04:23 - Peggy George
yes feel free to jump right into your presentation!

04:49 - Peggy George
teachers have sooooo many things to organize to keep them running smoothly!

05:02 - Peggy George
Here's our Livebinder link if you missed it.

05:47 - Peggy George
I think this is really helpful to parents because we all know how kids can get them in the store and then tell them they need EVERYTHING for school and parents spend way more than they need to!

06:07 - Peggy George
Hi Susie and Stephanie! Welcome! So glad you could join us today!

06:30 - Peggy George
great point about being able to read the list on a smartphone! been there done that!

06:38 - Susie @shighley
Sorry I'm late. Teacher computers reimaged over summer; had to do many steps to reload collaborate

06:40 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Having the school supply list available on smart phone is definitely needed in today in today's world.

07:01 - Peggy George
so glad you made it Susie! That can be so frustrating!

07:28 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Yep, that's how we do it at my school. Secretary types it up and then they are put on school website.

07:38 - Peggy George
this makes it so easy for teachers! love it!

07:46 - Peggy George (TeacherLists website)

07:57 - Peggy George

08:13 - Peggy George
how cool is that! I'm on Amazon almost daily!!!

08:26 - Peggy George

08:32 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Love the collaboration with Amazon and Family Dollar.

08:53 - Peggy George
hope you'll be able to view this!

09:12 - Peggy George
I'm seeing it great now. Tim won't see our comments until he stops sharing his website

09:16 - @plnaugle(Paula)
I put the 4th grade list on Amazon myself last year.

09:33 - Peggy George
it's really helpful to see these examples!

09:46 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Hi Carolyn. :)

09:47 - Peggy George

09:56 - Peggy George
Welcome Carolyn!!! Great to see you!

10:04 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Love coupons. :)

10:30 - Peggy George
I love that they give you the option of required supplies and wish lists. That's really helpful to parents!

11:03 - Peggy George
lots of ways to find the lists :-)

11:13 - Peggy George
perfect Tim!

11:17 - Carolyn Stanley
Hi, all! I'm not sure if my principal knows about this, but I'll be sure to let him know.

11:45 - Peggy George
that's a real bonus! you don't have to recreate the list every year from scratch!

11:48 - Susie @shighley
It's amazing to see how long some of the school supplies lists have become

11:55 - Peggy George
Hi Laura! Welcome!

11:56 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Oh that will streamline the process so much. Thank you, Tim.

12:23 - Peggy George (Amazon School Lists)

12:34 - Peggy George (Family Dollar site for TeacherLists)

12:46 - Peggy George
woo hoo!!! always free for schools and parents!

13:38 - Peggy George
those vendors SHOULD be financial sponsors. They stand to make a huge profit. :-) Awesome!

13:53 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Ah the world of branding. It is so powerful.

14:39 - Peggy George
definitely Paula! and we have to respect that we will see ads when we are getting free programming/services!

14:46 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Do the coupons that show up vary based on each particular list?

15:25 - Peggy George
Hi Wes! So glad you could join us! You had an awesome STEMSeeds session today!!!

15:33 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Unfortunately I'm learning about this a little late for this year. We start back on August 5.

16:16 - Peggy George
even though school has already started many places we still often have to give reminders later and also need to replenish supplies as the year goes on :-)

16:23 - Peggy George
yes I'm here!

17:04 - wfryer
hello everyone

17:21 - Kim T. AZ #2
Hi Wes

17:31 - Peggy George
Lorie will get on the mic for Q/A next so please post your questions for him!

17:36 - @plnaugle(Paula)
I use Amazon Smile so that every time I order from Amazon a portion of my money goes to DonorsChoose.

17:39 - Lorie Moffat
I have one.

17:44 - Peggy George
the Pledge idea is a great one!

18:05 - Peggy George
Thanks a lot Tim!!

18:06 - Kim T. AZ #2
Amazon Smile, never heard of this...

18:21 - @plnaugle(Paula)
You have the option to set up the charity that AmazonSmile goe to.

18:22 - Carolyn Stanley
I like the idea of reading lists.

18:39 - Peggy George
After Tim answers TeacherLists questions I would love to hear more about PTO Today and some of his other parent involvement work :-)

18:45 - Eileen
Wes, will your STEM session be archived? Sorry I missed it.

19:08 - wfryer
yes, it's archived on YouTube, will be on later today :-)

19:13 - Susie @shighley
He explained it pretty thoroughly!

19:28 - Peggy George
it's a very simple tool!! and very helpful!

19:36 - Eileen
Great, thank you Wes!

19:46 - wfryer
Why should a teacher use TeacherLists instead of just an Amazon wish list?

20:23 - Peggy George
I really wanted to hear more about his work with parent involvement because it's such an important topic for us! :-)

20:38 - Peggy George
great question Wes!

21:14 - Peggy George
PTOs are so important in their support for teachers and schools! With schools so underfunded we couldn't do a lot of the things we want to without the parent support!

21:44 - Eileen
How about posting the link to Teacher Lists on my Google Classroom Webpage.

22:03 - @plnaugle(Paula)
We need to figure out ways to make our ESL's parents feel more connected to our schools.

22:13 - Peggy George

22:33 - Carolyn Stanley
The PTO at our school is a very supportive organization. Their fundraising efforts allows the kids to participated in field trips that would otherwise be out of reach. They also make teachers feel valued and run an afterschool teacher appreciation treat once a month.

22:37 - Peggy George
thanks for your question Eileen?

23:17 - wfryer
great, thanks for answering that question!

23:19 - Peggy George
can TeacherLists be used in any country or just the U.S.?

23:44 - Kim T. AZ #2
facebook, twitter

23:58 - Peggy George
having a custom link makes it really powerful--much less to wade through!

24:01 - Carolyn Stanley
Can you refresh how to sign up again?

24:43 - Peggy George
great Tim! That will be great so it can be used in other countries!

25:13 - Peggy George (TeacherLists for Schools)

25:29 - Eileen
Can the lists be updated?

25:33 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Could one teacher post list or does a whole school have to tdo so?

25:39 - Peggy George
Awesome Pinterest site for them!

26:02 - Eileen

26:08 - Peggy George
good that the fields are completely editable because often people call things by different names :-)

26:24 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Can I post a Class Wish list?

26:42 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Okay I will post my list today.

27:03 - Peggy George
do you ask for Kleenex or tissues? :-) With TeacherLists do you have to select a specific brand?

27:25 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Glad I have a digital copy of the 4th grade supply list on my computer. :)

27:48 - Peggy George
woo hoo Paula!!!!! Let us know how it works for you!

28:07 - Peggy George
thanks Tim!! your answers were really helpful!

28:11 - Tim Sullivan
awesome re: your great PTO!

28:49 - Carolyn Stanley
Oh, thanks, Paula for stepping in for August 8. That will be so helpful.
