Go D!!

02:49 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I attended high school and college in York, PA, so I'll be cheering for the Eagles.

03:16 - Peggy George
I think this is so important! Teachers are no different than students when it comes to having/needing alternatives!!

04:25 - Peggy George
Paula, I didn't know you attended HS/college in York. My ex-husband was from that area.

04:26 - Susie @shighley

08:08 - Paula Fehlinger
choice for sure

08:14 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Choice and best practices with webtools for my classroom.

08:32 - Peggy George
even if it's just participation in the chat during an online webinar, that is really meaningrful to me!

08:41 - Peggy George
Hi Eileen! Welcome!

09:07 - Peg Volak
I love the collaboration that comes along with working with people on an idea/project

09:08 - Doug Henry (San Leandro, CA)
Gamifying PD should work...

09:13 - Paula Fehlinger
Dennine is really great with PD options and effective PD! Follow her :)

09:19 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Yes, Peggy, having a voice during a presentation is what I enjoy most with online webinars.

09:37 - Peggy George
clever hashtag!! #VisitLearnTakeAway

09:38 - Eileen 1
Hi Peggy! Sorry I;m late. Trouble logging in on my ipad - asking for a password ?

10:00 - Peggy George
no password is require Eileen! Strange!

10:21 - Peg Volak
I've heard of Give 3, Take 3 (give/take ideas during a PD)

10:31 - Eileen 1
Yes, I've never seen it before. So I had to login with my computer. Just glad to be back!

10:33 - Peggy George
Link for today's Livebinder (all of Dennine's slides are in it)

10:50 - Peggy George
Great Eileen!!

10:53 - Peg Volak
Twitter has been a game changer!

10:57 - Susie @shighley
Good visual for this

11:11 - Peggy George
we've all experienced plenty of the "sit and get" PD!!

11:13 - Dejan Kreculj
Hi Sawa!

11:24 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Hi Sawa and welcome.

11:28 - Peggy George
Welcome Sawa!!

11:41 - Sawa
Hello Dejane.

11:41 - Sawa
Hello Peggy.

11:58 - Sawa
Hello everyone.

12:04 - Peggy George
what a cozy environment!!

12:28 - Peggy George
food is always important in f2f PD :-)

12:33 - KimT AZ
This is awesome!

12:36 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Cookies, Cocoa, and Cool Stuff - love that title.

12:45 - Peg Volak
So true!

12:50 - Peggy George
hahaha! if you bake it they will come!!!

12:57 - JMG3D
Buy it and pass it off as homemade:)

13:06 - Paula Fehlinger
This is at my school! Truly is a great, comfortable environment to learn! Safe place to ask questions!

13:06 - Peg Volak
That works too!

13:28 - Paula Fehlinger
Lots of make and take!

13:32 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Here in New Orleans it's Mardi Gras season, so we had King Cake at our last staff meeting.

13:35 - Peggy George
I remember a really funny song about teachers rushing to the Teacher's Lounge whenever there is food!! :-) I'll have to find it to share.

13:51 - Paula Fehlinger
Some teachers visit twice ;)

14:15 - Peggy George
Yes! Words Their Way is terrific!

14:38 - Peg Volak
Words Their coming our way soon!

14:43 - Peggy George
I really like the name "Learning Lounge" So inviting!

16:16 - Susie @shighley
We used to do something similar right before Christmas break, but now teachers have grades due then, and they often don't feel like they have time to come in!

16:22 - Peggy George
Which of those times seems to work best for you? before school, after school, lunch?

16:30 - Peg Volak
Timing is everything, Susie!

16:46 - Susie @shighley
We had ours open all day one day, and teachers came to the library during their prep (or they could stay after_

17:03 - Peg Volak
Susie, who ran yours?

17:04 - Peggy George
Always important to ask your potential participants what they are interested in learning!

17:11 - Peggy George
love that idea Susie!!

17:46 - Susie @shighley
I did!

17:51 - Peggy George
This survey is in the Livebinder. You can make a copy of it if you'd like to use/modify it.

17:59 - Peg Volak

18:26 - @plnaugle (Paula)
What is FAST?

18:27 - Susie @shighley
Sometimes I used a computer lab and had different programs open for Ts.

18:37 - Erin
Love that invitation!

18:40 - Erin

18:54 - Peggy George
these are great examples for invitations!

19:12 - Peggy George
The Animoto video example is in the Livebinder :-)

19:23 - Erin
FAST is an assessment system.

19:35 - Peggy George (Example of resources for PD experience from the Learning Lounge)

19:49 - Eileen 1
last fall we did the same type of survey pn google forms concerning Google Classroom. Teachers were so happy to be asked what they would like to learn. Our afterschool PD went so much better than previous sessions where they just went and listened to what the Principal wanted to share.

20:04 - @bcdtech Maureen

20:27 - Paula Fehlinger
We are having our Learning Lounge coming up soon!

20:28 - @bcdtech Maureen
The teachers at my school are piloting FAST

20:33 - Peggy George
that is great Eileen! Do you happen to have an example of your survey we could share in our Livebinder?

20:44 - Peggy George (Website for Learning Lounge PD examples)

20:59 - Peggy George
oh yes!! prizes are always wonderful!!!

21:44 - Peg Volak
Kuddos to Tara! Always helpful with a supportive environment!

21:51 - Susie @shighley
That's great. If your principal wants to be seen as an instructional leader, it's important to have time to work and explore with them

21:52 - @bcdtech Maureen
I want to do something similar for my new "STEAM lab"- runa test kitchen for the day

21:55 - Peggy George
that kind of support makes a huge difference!

22:37 - Paula Fehlinger
Yes! It's nice to see our administrator so visible and ready to dig in with us! :)

22:41 - Eileen 1
Let's see if I can bring it up. How would you like me to send it to you?

22:50 - Peggy George
this is a really fun survey!

23:16 - Peggy George
Eileen, can you post the link here in the chat?

24:31 - John Langley
love the exit ticket idea

24:37 - Peggy George
After Party Exit ticket

24:57 - Eileen 1
This is the link to the Google Classroom/Google Drive staff survey link:

24:57 - KimT AZ
Taking notes on how I can use this with my students.

25:18 - Peggy George
Awesome Eileen! Thank you!!

25:44 - Peggy George
Click on play on the video

25:49 - John Langley
Eileen - says we need permission. Can you make the link public to view

25:51 - Peg Volak
Eileen, you'll need to switch sharing permissions.

27:01 - John Langley
thanks Eileen :)

27:06 - Peggy George
This is a great way for the teachers to share! Love hearing from them!

28:03 - Peggy George
I hope you're all able to view/hear the video. This is the link if you need to watch in your browser.

28:21 - Eileen 1
Very nice!

29:03 - Peggy George
Great idea!! Learning Lounge in February! Lots to love!!!!

29:23 - Peggy George
a chocolate fountain sounds wonderful!!

29:47 - Tara 5
So excited for Love Learning in the Lounge!!

29:52 - Peg Volak

29:58 - Susie @shighley
The space heater--cute idea!

30:14 - Peggy George
those are such great ideas for making teachers feel valued--like real "People" :-)

30:59 - Peggy George
this is one of my favorite EdCamp videos! Explains it so well!

31:10 - Peggy George

31:19 - Tara 5
We love a good EdCamp!

31:20 - @bcdtech Maureen #2
Having issues with java today.

31:33 - Lorie Moffat
me too, Maureen

31:34 - Peggy George
Hi Tara! Didn't see you come in. Welcome!

32:04 - Peg Volak
I love EdCamp! It's a great experience, no preparing, you just go and share/learn.

32:21 - Peggy George
I agree Peg!

32:23 - Patti Ruffing #2
was there a link to this video - i had to rejoin

32:27 - Peggy George

32:41 - Tara 5
Come visit us at EdCamp Lehigh Valley on Cinco de Mayo

32:55 - Peggy George
sorry people lost connection with the video! strange java things seem to be happening

33:01 - Dennine Leschinsky
I am excited for that!!

33:22 - Erin
EdCamp Lehigh Valley, May 5:

33:49 - Paula Fehlinger
Excited for May 5th!

33:50 - Patti Ruffing #2
ooh Lehigh Valley!

34:15 - Peggy George
That's a great term!! Empower Hour!!!

34:21 - @bcdtech Maureen #2
edCamp Boston AND edcampNorthQuabbin BOTH on March 17th-so hard to choose

34:49 - Peg Volak
Hi Mike!

34:57 - Mike 1

35:12 - Peggy George
Hi Mike! Welcome!

35:37 - @bcdtech Maureen #2
Would love to have faculty meeting that looks like this, instead of 2 hours of listening to what should be a memo and very rarely applies to me

35:49 - @plnaugle (Paula)
So much of what is covered in faculty meetings could be delivered via email. A better use of the time would be common planning among the teachers.

36:03 - Peggy George
Besides all of Dennine's great resources, there are a lot of additional links in the Livebinder that provide support for this kind of PD (non-traditional)

36:06 - Peggy George

36:31 - Peggy George
Paula, that is always the number one complaint!

36:55 - @bcdtech Maureen #2
Funny, I just got an email from superintendent as I am listening to this- asking for volunteers to help shape April district PD day

36:55 - Paula Fehlinger
I love having Empower Hour! It gives our faculty time to collaborate and share! We desperately need this time!

37:11 - Peggy George (Example of a district-level PD day schedule)

37:21 - Peg Volak
Now you know what you can suggest, Maureen!

37:45 - @bcdtech Maureen #2
Yes- I should just share the link to this webinar!

37:49 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Attended a social studies 2-hour meeting last Monday after school where we got together with teachers in the same grade level and shared our resources, lesson plans, and DBQ assessments.

37:57 - Peggy George
Some familiar names there!! Yeah Paula Fehlinger!

38:07 - Peg Volak
20% Time after, that is awesome!

38:08 - Susie @shighley
So, it was not exactly an Edcamp since the sessions were available in advance.

38:10 - Paula Fehlinger

38:29 - Susie @shighley
But, I think even Edcamps need to have a few sessions "planted" in advance to get things going

38:37 - Peggy George
love the opportunities for job-alike PD where you all have something in common!

39:35 - Peggy George
Great timing Maureen! Did you say yes to your Supt??? :-)

39:58 - @bcdtech Maureen #2
Of course... meeting 2/14 at 3 pm... come along

40:11 - Peg Volak
Do you have Empower Hours each month? (your faculty meetings?)

40:18 - Peggy George
I agree Susie! It really helps to have a few people ready to go to facilitate a session!

40:48 - Peggy George (Survey for BreakFAST)

40:56 - Tara 5
Yes we do Peg!

40:57 - Paula Fehlinger
Yes, Empower Hours are each month

41:03 - @plnaugle (Paula)
We are using iReady for reading and math. First diagnostic is given at beginning of the year, 2nd was given in early Jan., and 3rd will be given in May. Each month there is a builtin Growth Monitoring check given to each student is each subject.

41:13 - Peggy George
that's the link I just shared :-)

41:37 - Peggy George
haha!!! :-)

41:54 - Peggy George
I'm curious why you make their name optional

42:00 - Peggy George
on the BreakFAST survey

42:07 - Tara 5
We ask teachers what they are looking to embrace/expand upon for the next month and then we look for facilitators

42:09 - Peggy George (Sample BreakFAST Agenda)

42:18 - Peg Volak
Tara, are your teachers easily jumping in and presenting/sharing? Is there a variety of groups/hosts?

43:09 - Tara 5
Yes, I am blessed to have so many dynamic educators who are willing to share!!

43:17 - Peggy George
Paula, how do you like iReady? Is it just an assessment or curriculum too?

43:31 - Tara 5
It is all about creating that safe culture though :-)

43:37 - Peg Volak
That would be so beneficial!

44:15 - Peggy George
This is a link to the example she is sharing for her Parent PD. (Reading Strategies Parent Workshop presentation)

44:37 - JMG3D
The individualized folders are great!

44:41 - Tara 5
We do have a variety of topics being covered so that there is something for everyone and you are not just sitting there wasting time. We avoid that at all costs!

44:42 - Peggy George
I love the make and take concept! You really feel like it was worthwhile when you can use it immediately in your classroom.

44:53 - Peggy George
Super idea for the folders!

44:57 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Peggy, it is both. After they take the diagnostic test and learning path is built for them. We are required to have our students complete a minimum of 45 minutes of computer-based instruction in both reading and math each week.

45:00 - Peg Volak
Florida Center is great!

45:04 - Peggy George (Florida Center for Reading Research)

45:32 - Tara 5
As for the FAST survey, names are optional because we want that safe space for honesty.

45:40 - Peggy George
all of those links are in the Livebinder if you teach reading you will love them!!

46:14 - Peg Volak
What's the turnout at Parents PD night?

46:20 - Peggy George
that is so cool that the parents are creating materials they can use at home with their kids!!

46:36 - Peggy George (Adam Schoenbart: Making PD Matter with the EdCamp Model)

46:36 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I use the resources from FCRR with my students. They are great!

47:00 - Paula Fehlinger
Thanks for the great information, Dennine@

47:16 - Anthippi Harou #2
Thank you! The Livebinder will be a gem!!!

47:21 - John Langley
Thanks Dennine - great ideas to take back

47:26 - Peg Volak
Lots of good ideas to suggest to our leaders!

47:27 - Peggy George
Fantastic presentation Dennine! Thanks for sharing all of your ideas and resources!!

47:44 - Susie @shighley
Lots of great ideas. So many schools are struggling with parent involvement

47:48 - Peggy George
Which works best--before, after or lunch for your PD?

48:01 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Thank you, Dennine. I will be sharing some of your PD ideas with my admin. :)

48:25 - Peggy George
we always had a challenge with before school because of the teacher duties :-(

48:28 - JMG3D
Thanks for ideas Dennine-great as always. Miss you at JMG

48:30 - Susie @shighley
I think it depends on your schedule. We had to be ready to welcome kids at 7:15 am

48:32 - Peg Volak
Thank you, Dennine! Fabulous ideas!

48:41 - Erin
Thank you Dennine!! Love your energy! You should write a book :-)

48:50 - Peg Volak

48:56 - Peggy George
yes Erin!!! Dennine should write a book!! :-)

49:04 - Peg Volak
Dennine should write a book!

49:12 - KimT AZ
Wonderful info!

49:14 - Peggy George
any final questions for Dennine?

49:29 - Susie @shighley
Your ideas help build a positive school culture

49:39 - @bcdtech Maureen #2
Thank you!

49:52 - Peggy George
do you get good parent turnout?

50:00 - @plnaugle (Paula)
If running an after-school PD is there a special place where the teachers' children can go? We have so many teachers with little ones either at our school or the Catholic school next door that are present during our meetings.

50:11 - Peggy George
that is terrific turnout!! 23 parents!!

50:24 - Peggy George
great question Paula!!

50:26 - Tara 5
Thank you Dennine! You are such an asset to our team :-)

51:03 - Peggy George
we provided babysitting for our parent workshops and that helped a lot

51:04 - Peg Volak
Service hours for HS students!

51:13 - Peggy George
those incentives make a big difference!!

51:15 - Anthippi Harou #2
Could you please share again the link to the Livebinder bc I was disconnected for a while and can't see the beginning of my chat box?

51:27 - Peggy George
