CLASSROOM 2.0 LIVE webinar. Mary Beth Hertz, Featured Teacher

February 21, 2015

00:00 - stidmama
We have a lot of tech-phobic teachers who don't even check email regularly...

00:01 - Patti Ruffing
@Glenn, i agree

00:05 - Peggy George

00:12 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Don't have a tech curriculum at all in my school.

00:28 - @plnaugle (Paula)
WooHoo for Mary Beth. :)

00:29 - Peggy George
Mary Beth is juggling her 7 month old baby today so she's my hero!!

00:39 - stidmama
@plnaugle -- how can that be, Paula? That would make me sad.

00:40 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
You are the curriculum Paula :) You're awesome!

00:48 - Peggy George (About Mary Beth Hertz)

01:03 - Peggy George (Mary Beth Hertz on Twitter)

01:14 - Peggy George
she is such an inspiring educator!!!

01:40 - Peggy George
Welcome Dusanka!

01:56 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Yes, I definitely teah my students tech, but it is not a requirement in my district. Most others put students on computers to access online programs and that is it!

01:59 - Peggy George
can't wait to hear her stories about her computer labs!!

02:20 - Peggy George (SLA Beeber hashtag for tweets)

02:52 - Peggy George
I feel so lucky to have her here to share with us today!

02:54 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I got to meet Mary Beth in 2010 at a pre activity to ISTE that year. We were roommates! :)

03:22 - Peggy George
she's back!

03:27 - Lorie Moffat
yes, she is

03:28 - stidmama

03:37 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Hi Noah. Hope you are being good. :)

03:47 - Peggy George
we like to ask all of our Featured Teachers this question

03:59 - Peggy George
Thank you so much for being with us Mary Beth!

04:15 - Peggy George
yes many different time zones today!

04:30 - Peggy George
7 month olds aren't that predictable :-)

04:36 - @plnaugle (Paula)
No apologies needed. We are so glad you are here!

04:52 - Peggy George
Welcome bruceb and aunttammie! So glad you could join us!

04:54 - @bcdtech Maureen
no need to apologize- juggling a baby and computer... nothing I ever had to do!

05:18 - Peggy George
I loved it when web 2.0 emerged and we could actually interact on the web!

05:26 - aunttammie 1
Thanks, Peggy....good to be here again!

05:58 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I love interacting. When I watch a recorded webinar, I miss being able to interact.

06:00 - Peggy George
many people are talking about web 3.0 but it's a new concept for me

06:04 - @bcdtech Maureen
Web 3.0 as the semantic ? web was a buzz word for a while, but I don't hear that term anymore

06:20 - Peggy George
I agree Paula!!! I try to type when I'm watching a recording--out of habit :-)

06:32 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Me too, Peggy.

06:52 - Peggy George
you're doing great Mary Beth!!

06:58 - Peggy George
Hi karen! Welcome!

07:17 - Peggy George (Philly Teacher, Mary Beth Hertz’ blog)

07:30 - Patti Ruffing
i love to peek into other people's classrooms!

07:44 - Peggy George
Here's our Livebinder link for today in case you missed it.

07:52 - Peggy George
me too Patti!!

08:12 - Peggy George
that's a very familiar image for me!! many computer labs still look like that

08:21 - @bcdtech Maureen
was this Alliance?

08:24 - Patti Ruffing
computer lab is my classroom

08:55 - Peggy George
very tough for teachers to get to the students and see what they're doing on the computers with that setup

08:57 - @bcdtech Maureen
tuxpaint and voicethread

09:09 - aunttammie 1
job requirement in these rooms is to be skinny!

09:24 - Peggy George
did they use headsets in the computer lab?

09:28 - stidmama
Yep. There was a master computer at the middle school last year that let me see what the kiddos were up to, but not quite the same as proximity...

09:33 - Peggy George
hahaha aunttammie! so true!

10:06 - Peggy George
hadn't noticed that the keyboards and mice were wireless. interesting!

10:20 - @bcdtech Maureen
@stidmama- I tried that years ago... could also lock down computers- didn't work well- turning the screens so I could see worked best for me

10:30 - @bcdtech Maureen
They have legs

10:32 - Ben 1 #2
We use the Impero program to monitor kids' computers in class

10:47 - stidmama
lost sound?

10:51 - @bcdtech Maureen
sound dropped for me

10:52 - tam 1

10:53 - Peggy George
I remember we used to have cables on our computers to keep them from being stolen

11:01 - Ben 1 #2
Like we could literally see their computer activities

11:04 - @bcdtech Maureen

11:28 - Peggy George
hopefully she won't lose her connection. if the sound drops out it will speed up to catch up so she may sound like Mickey Mouse temporarily

11:40 - @bcdtech Maureen
it's Ok now- just laggy for me up the hills

11:42 - Susie @shighley
I was just explaining to kids the other day about the old mice with the mouse balls kids would steal

11:55 - Peggy George
all is good for me now :-)

12:18 - Peggy George
Apple Remote Desktop? How did you use it?

12:31 - @bcdtech Maureen
Nice idea

12:33 - stidmama
I wonder if a carpet would make the loss of wireless peripherals less? I drop my ipad in the classroom a lot (it has a case, too), but the carpet gives enough padding that it is okay.

12:48 - @DrThomasHo (Indiana)
@shighley I 'show my age' OFTEN! ;-)

12:56 - Peggy George
aha! projection on the screen for everyone to see the same thing :-) awesome you can take control of their computers so you can keep them with you if necessary

13:00 - @bcdtech Maureen
chrome remote desktop works well for me for just home/school connections

13:21 - Peggy George
great idea!

14:00 - Peggy George
that is so exciting that Mary Beth could develop her own curriculum!!

14:16 - stidmama
I love how you broke this down for us.

14:26 - @bcdtech Maureen
has this changed in the high school? Looks like a good list

14:28 - Peggy George (The Four Pillars of Technology in the Classroom)

14:39 - Patti Ruffing
at the beginning no one really had a tech curriculum, we had to feel our way

14:43 - stidmama
I would love to figure out how to do some collaborative work and editing with my 3rd graders next year.

15:01 - @bcdtech Maureen
I agree! I always made my own too

15:19 - Peggy George
really helpful to see this!!

15:57 - Peggy George
so many ways to integrate technology across the curriculum!

16:06 - Peggy George
Hi Luciane! Welcome!

16:35 - Peggy George (Edutopia blog post by Mary Beth Hertz: Social Media at School: Teaching Safety on the Virtual Playground)

16:43 - stidmama
Wow. Learning so much already... :-)

16:54 - @plnaugle (Paula)
My 4th graders are doing so much better with their writing because the yhave blogs. They are much more willing to revise and edit that way.

17:00 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
That's what I do. Projects. Just in time learning of tech to create, communicate, share, reflect.

17:01 - @bcdtech Maureen
As you start putting more work online, the dig citizenship becomes a more natural way to look at it

17:02 - Peggy George
Mary Beth blogs regularly on Edutopia :-) (Mary Beth’ blog posts on Edutopia)

17:08 - Mary Beth Hertz

17:12 - Peggy George
Scratch :-)

17:14 - LucianeCurator
Hi dear Peggy and everybody .

17:31 - Ben 1 #2
I use a lot of scratch for game design p4ojects.

17:50 - Patti Ruffing
I agree on the research issue

18:07 - Peggy George
research is a real challenge!!! crap detection is a real skill to learn!

18:09 - Ben 1 #2
How about proper citations

18:11 - @bcdtech Maureen
I could spend forever on research... and it's always changing- mostly for the better with new tools

18:21 - stidmama
yes! research for kids whose comprehension skills are low is really tricky.

18:31 - @bcdtech Maureen
Google docs has new tools built in that help

18:34 - stidmama
Loved easybib for the middle schoolers last year

18:38 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Love the research feature that is built inot Google docs.

18:42 - Mary Beth Hertz

18:43 - Peggy George
easybib is a great way to teach them about making citations

18:48 - Doug Henry
Google docs research tool is great for citations

18:53 - Peggy George
:-) I'll add these links to the Livebinder

18:59 - @bcdtech Maureen
I depend on symbaloo as a starting point for my kids- have grade pages, etc...

19:03 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
I remember covering "crap detection" with #etmooc

19:07 - stidmama
There was a presenter on symbaloo a couple years ago -- was it you, Maureen?

19:47 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
There was a Symbaloo presentation just a couple of weeksago.

19:54 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Research -- search using about five key words about your topic -- words you'd use to tell about your topic; love the research tool in Google Docs -- preview, link, cite all in one; and choose Creative Commons and which citations style to use.

19:55 - Patti Ruffing
here is a link for the CRAP test there are many resources for that

20:08 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Thanks Patti

20:27 - @bcdtech Maureen
my current school symbaloo Always changing... but I also have symbaloos for teachers with more of the lesson plans type stuff- not interactive as I have for the kids

21:00 - Peggy George
thanks Patti!

21:09 - Patti Ruffing
oh yes i remember that issue with the powerstrips under the table

21:10 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Crap Detection Mini-Course | Howard Rheingold

21:21 - Peggy George
We love having you all share links in the chat and I'll add them to the Livebinder after the show.

21:27 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Thanks Paula

21:43 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
@Paula - yep - it was Harold Rheingold.

22:08 - Patti Ruffing
oh that is exactly my issue with the time frame

22:41 - stidmama
Thanks for mentioning that, Glenn -- one of the weeks I wasn't able to be here. :-( Will go check the archive later.

22:46 - @bcdtech Maureen
This is a link to a search etc... ppt that I did with 5th and 5th grades this year.

22:50 - Patti Ruffing
I would be curious to know how MaryBeth's assessments figure into the students' report cards, separate tech grade?

22:55 - Peggy George
During Connected Educator Month I won a prize...Howard Rheingold's hat!!! Can't wait to get it because I know it will bring me inspiration and brilliance! :-)

22:57 - Susie @shighley
I'm wondering if Mary Beth has ever had a media specialist to collaborate with for incorporating these skills.

23:19 - Patti Ruffing
That's why no one wants me to be absent, because I am "prep time"

23:26 - Peggy George
amazing and wonderful!

23:31 - LucianeCurator
Congrats, Peggy ! :)

23:35 - Peggy George
sad but true Patti!!

23:39 - @bcdtech Maureen
As the tech coach, I come in to help out- some teachers use me as a prep... as long as I can get the kids to try new things- don't really care, but it would be nice for teachers to learn alongside them

23:52 - Peggy George
these tips are great for management!

24:19 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
@peggy - we'll be expecting a picture of you in that hat! :)

24:20 - Peggy George (Giving Students Freedom-blog post by Mary Beth Hertz)

24:38 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Oh this would be heaven @bcdtech Maureen "it would be nice for teachers to learn alongside them"

24:49 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Can't wait to see you in that hat, Peggy. :)

24:57 - Peggy George
I'll definitely be tweeting a picture :-) I have a pic of Howard with his hat on and plan to make it a collage with me beside him :-) Fun!!

25:03 - @bcdtech Maureen
I love having carts with netbooks for kids- can put some great old software like tuxpaint on... but chromebooks are wicked fast compared to startup of netbook

25:30 - Peggy George
so much better than letter grades for grading!

25:32 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Have had my netbooks since 2009. Only one has been dropped and damaged since I got them.

25:58 - Peggy George
so hard for teachers to be so isolated!!

26:26 - Peggy George
everything is so well organized!! routines are so important!

26:30 - @bcdtech Maureen
We have a library, but staffed by volunteer... no media specialist. Hearing about librarians and media specialists making makerspaces etc... is amazing!

26:33 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Agree Paula -- kids are respectful of their privilege of having access to computers.

26:41 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I have a chart by my computer cart with the number of the computer and which student uses each one. I have a 2:1 environment.

26:41 - stidmama
We have an ipad cart finally -- to share among 12 classrooms... but having the access even occasionally is wonderful.

26:52 - Peggy George (SLA Beeber student tech blogs)

27:08 - @bcdtech Maureen
that's fun!

27:14 - Peggy George
amazing that happens in just 5 minutes for an entire class!!!

27:39 - Patti Ruffing
Yes i was there at SLA once

27:41 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Now that a I have a mix of netbooks and Chromebooks, my students prefer the Chromebooks because they are faster.

28:25 - @bcdtech Maureen
building your own school with leaders like Chris - what an opportunity!

28:32 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
Love the concepts by Grant Wiggins - UBD

28:36 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Love hearing Noah cooing in the background. :)

28:45 - Peggy George
AUP for Science Leadership Academy

28:52 - Peggy George
very interesting to see that!

29:05 - Susie @shighley
I got to visit SLA for the Discovery Educator Day during ISTE. So glad to I got to see it.

29:06 - Patti Ruffing
I know it was a big topic of conversation when SLA went from macbooks to Dell Chromebooks...wondering if they are happy with the choice

29:12 - Peggy George
Grant Wiggins and Backwards Design is so important!!

29:25 - Peggy George

29:53 - @bcdtech Maureen
Does SLA provide online access for kids who may not have it at home... not the physical computer, but the access? Or is it no longer an issue in Philly?

30:04 - @plnaugle (Paula)
We have been using Backward Design for years. It is such a great way to plan.

30:33 - Peggy George
it was a challenge to teach it to pre-service teachers because they were just learning about lesson planning but it's so powerful!

30:52 - Patti Ruffing got the mic?

30:53 - Peggy George
oops! we just lost Mary Beth!

30:57 - Lorie Moffat
Lost her :(

30:58 - @bcdtech Maureen
looks like MB got dropped

30:58 - Peggy George
she'll be back :-)

31:13 - Peggy George
her baby is trying to help her :-)

31:35 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
LOL..ITB (it's the baby)

31:49 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I'm surprised SLA hasn't gone to a BYOD model.

32:33 - Peggy George
haha Glenn!

32:36 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Wondering how many schools still have computers labs.

32:41 - Patti Ruffing
we do

32:41 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
@Paula - I'm thinking the BYOD may be coming.

32:53 - @bcdtech Maureen
WOnder is there have been any significant changes since this book was written?

32:54 - Peggy George
would anyone like to take the mic? Maureen? Paula?

33:03 - stidmama
My biggest issue with the third graders is, since we don't have regular access in our own classroom to tech, when we DO have access, they are so busy playing (learning to use it/remembering how) that we end up with very little time for actual content work.

33:05 - Peggy George
we have so many experts in the room!!

33:07 - @careeson (Clarissa)
We do

33:29 - Lorie Moffat
I did

33:45 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
With 3rd grade, we used a bank of computers as a center.

33:50 - stidmama
I have a few kids in my class this year that I am not sure have reliable electricity in their homes... and some of course who have too much access outside of school to the detriment of normal kid play outside.

33:51 - Peggy George
we were both clicking on it Lorie :-)

34:05 - Lorie Moffat

34:22 - Susie @shighley
We are 1:1 chromebooks, but still have labs. They get their heaviest use during testing

34:34 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Our school has computer labs -- but we're trying to get computers in the classroom; I've been pushing for chromebooks (although I'd rather have MacBookAirs). But we've had a switch in admin so I'm not part of discussions anymore... only admin and IT discuss tech choices now. No Teacher input anymore.

34:38 - Peggy George
it's so hard to just have the computer lab once a week and so sad that the labs are being used for test prep only!!

34:49 - stidmama
this sounds really familiar... the last month and all next month will be all test-prep, not work on tech skills because our mandatory tests are all online this year.

35:08 - Peggy George
great question Paula!!! We'll ask her when she comes back :-)

35:15 - Patti Ruffing
i worked on writing our updated tech curriculum but my main goal is to get tech throught the curriculum and not once a week, but in some classes it happens and in others it doesn't

35:16 - Peggy George
anyone else want to take the mic?

35:25 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Yes stidmama -- everything from now on is test prep. so sad.

35:52 - Patti Ruffing
yes Maureen that is an ideal situation

35:53 - Mary Beth Hertz #2
I'm back! So sorry

35:56 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
@Sheri - the price between a Chromebook and MacBook Air is substantial.

36:13 - Peggy George
Hooray! Mary Beth is back :-)

36:26 - Peggy George
Thank you so much for sharing that Maureen and Paula!!!

36:36 - @bcdtech Maureen
it's one of those days

36:38 - Peggy George
we're so glad you're back Mary Beth!!!

36:47 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Glenn -- I know. That's why I've been suggesting chromebooks for 1:1

37:10 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman

37:25 - Peggy George
Hi Susi! I didn't see you join us and am so glad to see you!

38:00 - @bcdtech Maureen
My current IT guy locks down way too much- but it is elementary school... it gets in my way more than the kids. They are used to it

38:02 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Should our students be tasked with creating a tech curriculum? What is it they feel they need to learn about being online, research, etc?

38:05 - Peggy George
such a great point!!! rules and locking down and blocking sites won't teach kids to be responsible users!

38:14 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
We've only limited FB & Twitter for students at teacher request.

38:24 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman

38:47 - @bcdtech Maureen
I love my chromebook! So many extensions and apps- love the voice recognition extension- right in google docs now... so helpful!

38:49 - Susie @shighley
Peggy-It's good to be here for the first time in a while. Have had Saturday events for several weeks, but today jsut about everything canceled due to snow.

38:49 - Peggy George
that's an important lesson to learn!! school won't be responsible for lost documents! BACK UP!!

38:54 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Oh good. I may need to contact MaryBeth if we get chomebooks I'll look at the previously shared AUP.

38:55 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
We're a Chromebook district, as well. So many good outcomes.

39:25 - Peggy George
love that idea! create a chart together with students of rights and responsibilities!

39:44 - Patti Ruffing
i would like to know what kind of warranty and accidental damage policy they have on the chromebooks, do the students pay an insurance fee or tech fee? I am assuming they take the devices out of the building.

40:01 - @bcdtech Maureen
@Paula- the kids and their current teachers do not know enough to create a tech curriculum imho. They simply do not see the possibliities- altho I have to say I learn new things all the time from students

40:08 - Peggy George
hahaha Sounds like elementary :-)

41:02 - Susie @shighley
Ours (7-8) took chromebooks home last year. Damages were way over estimate. This year they do not get to take them home, only grades 9-12

41:09 - stidmama
I had hoped to do some collaborative learning with other third grade classrooms, but learning about this grade level took all my energy. Next year, I have my ideas lined up and will work over the summer with our wonderful tech teacher to get things in place early.

41:28 - Peggy George
great resolution to the problem!!

41:33 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
Here's an AUP I created.

41:50 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Good to know Susie.

41:51 - Peggy George
that's sad Susie! Why do you think that happened?

41:51 - @plnaugle (Paula)
@Maureen, but do they know what they need to learn about tech? It would be interesting to let them design a tech curriulum imho. Think it could be one that teachers use to learn also. :)

41:59 - @bcdtech Maureen
@stidmama- get in touch with me- I have 3rd grade teachers who will do projects...

42:08 - Peggy George (Giving Students Freedom-blog post by Mary Beth Hertz)

42:17 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Thanks Glenn. Needed that!

42:18 - stidmama
@Maureen -- thanks!

42:43 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
Our Ss take theirs home. With the Dell Chromebooks, we purchased the accidental damage coverage, and then charge Ss $30 per repair.

42:45 - Peggy George
very helpful to see those images!

43:06 - Peggy George
very comfortable but all on task :-)

43:54 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I use "45 degrees, hands on knees" when I need to address the whole class.

44:09 - stidmama
love the high focus of these teens in their classes.

44:26 - Peggy George
I like that Paula :-)

44:28 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
With our Samsungs from last year, we cover part of the cost of repair - insurance is offered for total loss/theft - and for repairs over $100.

44:29 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Cute Paula. I use "45 degrees" but not the knees (5678) :)

44:52 - @DrThomasHo (Indiana)
@shighley I hope our junior high Ss do better when we give them Chromebooks next year

45:20 - stidmama
LOL 3D fail!

45:27 - Peggy George
if they don't learn about these consequences in school in a safe environment they won't know what to do when they're on their own at home or with friends

45:47 - Peggy George
interest!!! awesome projects happening there!

45:48 - Patti Ruffing
is it expensive to have a 3D fail?

45:49 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
@DrThomasHo - it's a learning process for Ss to make the adjustment to 1:1 access.

46:03 - Patti Ruffing
i have no idea what the materials cost

46:10 - Doug Henry
Looks like a Destructor-bot!

46:14 - Susie @shighley
This year they purchased better cases for the students to transport them.

46:24 - Peggy George (SLA Beeber student art blogs)

46:30 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
User maker spaces are becoming popular. Good for STEM...

46:50 - @DrThomasHo (Indiana)
Wayne Township invested $40 in their cases

47:29 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Not only different access, but different choices for how they use their devices.

47:34 - Peggy George
you're doing great Mary BEth!!

47:51 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
We spend $10 for cases from CDW-G.

47:55 - Peggy George
excellent point about most tools requiring a teacher account

48:13 - stidmama
Mary Beth, thank you so much for being here. I have to go to an appointment at my school, but will try to check in when the session is online.

48:32 - Peggy George
so glad you could be here stidmama!

48:33 - @bcdtech Maureen
Feels like I spend an inordinate amount of time creating student accounts.

48:51 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
GAFE rocks for elementary, as well, as middle/high school.

48:53 - stidmama
Peggy-Lorie-Paula-Maureen, thank you so much for the gift you bring our teaching community.

49:03 - Patti Ruffing
I agree, Maureen. I have a master list and give them the same password for all their accounts...just to keep my sanity

49:13 - @bcdtech Maureen
I just had to redo the pdfs for each kid with all the sites and passwords- send home to parents. GAFE for us is only grades 4-6

49:19 - Peggy George
This is a fantastic student project at SLA Beeber using GoFundMe to get support for their Student Desk Design. Real world STEM learning!

49:19 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Thank you @stidmama. Have a great weekend. :)

49:27 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
We do to Patti -- same passwords.

49:32 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri

49:57 - tam 1
sometimes it's really challenging convincing teenagers to try to 'figure it out' themselves :(

50:01 - РадојкаМикшин

50:07 - @DrThomasHo (Indiana)
Listening on my iPad while working on my Chromebook is really confusing...I just tried to TOUCH my Chromebook (NOT Pixel) screen :-P

50:08 - @bcdtech Maureen
Thank you so much MaryBeth!

50:17 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
I agree, Mary Beth, re: how my learning in K-8 has benefitted my work in the high school setting.

50:25 - Susie @shighley
I appreciate how you included so many of the challenges you've faced.

50:30 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Thanks Mary Beth

50:30 - Peggy George
you'll be able to access her contact info in the Livebinder for today.

50:32 - @plnaugle (Paula)
My students write their login info in the back of their school provided planner. It has a hard back cover and they must always have the planner with them.

50:58 - @bcdtech Maureen
I've taught prek-9 and many of the same things apply across all grades

what are the major differences you find between Charter and traditional schools? Basically freedom to create your own curriculum?

51:42 - Peggy George
thanks :-)

With the iPad, you can use Splashtop classroom to mirror to iPads/Chromebooks in the classroom.

We're going to try it in science class this year.

I see a big difference between independent school life and now working in public school. Testing, proscribed curriculum... ordering is a nightmare, etc

52:53 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Yes. Our current admin and IT advisors are recommending "Office skills" as tech learning. Instead of communicate, create, share, reflect, citizenship.

52:59 - Peggy George
it's so important that the curriculum and learning goals determine which tech tools you will use and not the other way around :-)

53:37 - Peggy George
and choice of tools is a very important part of the process for student learning!

Check out for Internet access

54:05 - @bcdtech Maureen
that's helpful! I hadn't heard that. I wonder if our local ISP offers anything like that

54:05 - Peggy George
nice to have that option for low income families!

54:08 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Agree peggy!

54:36 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
@Sheri - bummer :( - perhaps they can use the free One Drive. Such a waste to purchase district-wide - Office products.

When i do BYOD days, I connect student devices to our wifi, then tell kids they can sit outside our school and be connected. :)

55:04 - @bcdtech Maureen
With a rural younger population, elementary school- transportation, etc = roadblocks for access before or afterschool

55:07 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
And We're a GAFE school. It'll be a learning journey...

55:08 - Peggy George
how does that work DrThomas?? if they buy that phone do they get free internet access?

55:31 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
@DrThomasHo - I'm interested in Classflow, too.

55:35 - Peggy George
love that Paula!!

56:17 - Peggy George
that sounds like a good policy to hold students/parents accountable for the laptops

56:21 - @plnaugle (Paula)
During hurricanes I have had to sit in school parking lots to have Internet access when my service was down.

56:45 - Peggy George
wow! good to know!

57:17 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
@Peggy - because we rely on Ss having the tools, we give out loaners. And...I wish we could enforce the deductible, but it's not happening.

if we have a presenter that does a demo using app sharing you can see it better if you use the full Blackboard Collaborate recording (rather than the video recording) :-)

1:02:57 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Thanks everyone. Have a fabulous weekend. :)
