Hi All,

I saw this on Twitter and it made me think about our discussions about social media, social justice, and citizen journalists. It's pretty powerful. 
A year ago, protestors all across the country elevated the souls of Mike Brown, Eric Garner, and so many others who’d been brutally murdered at the hands of their respective ... Read More

Hi All,

I saw this PD opportunity and thought about our institute. I think this is a great follow-up. Of course, the MEME made me this of our MEME girl +Rachel Millstein

Another great day of learning. I used the Word Foto App to capture the top 10 words that reflect my takeaways for day 2. Can you find all ten words?

Is anyone driving to ANEW15? I'm trying to decided if I want to drive everyday or take the metro. I'm coming from Baltimore, MD which is close. Does anyone know if we can have our parking validated? Thanks

I think it is important that we decide on a common definition of blended learning. The title of the video was misleading, because when I hear or read blended learning I think about the various blended learning models.  The teacher in the video did an excellent job of modeling how to effectively integrate technology to support 21st century teaching and learning. She also illustrated the various level of the SAMR model; but I am not sure I would consider this blended learning.  Perhaps it is entitled blended learning because the teacher and students are using analog (print) and digital resources?

Blended Learning programs can benefit students and teachers when the appropriate blended learning model has been selected based on the individual need(s) of the student. Once the best model http://www.christenseninstitute.org/blended-learning-definitions-and-models/ has been being selected, for a student, school, or district; it is essential that resources, infrastructure, and policies are in place to support it.

A few items to consider…
 Resources:
• Training: Have teachers received adequate PD to implement?
• Staff & Tech: Is additional staffing or technology required?
• Funding: How much will it cost? Can it be sustained? 

Infrastructure:
• Does software or hardware require upgrades in Wi-Fi?

Equity and Access
• How do we provide access and resources to those students and schools who have limited resources, poor infrastructures, and/or other conditions that contribute to the digital divide?

Joquetta, this would be an excellent blog post -- a really concise explanation of blended learning and what it takes to get there.

I don't think I can ever get enough of a lesson asking students to define research!

Click-bait is spreading!!! 
Following a conversation in the office on Friday afternoon we posted this very silly tweet with the hashtag #HistoricalClickbait – historical events written as sensationalist headlines guaranteed to attract readers: #HistoricalClickbait: This King Made Terrible Decisions and His Barons' Reaction Was Perfect — Kate Wiles (@katemond) July 24, 2015 Because this was a brilliant idea (or perhaps because it was Friday), #HistoricalClickbait ended up tr...

I've been telling everyone about my awesome learning experience. I want to thank +Newseum ED +Annenberg Learner  for all of the time and effort you invested to ensure that we were able to engage in high quality professional development.

It was a pleasure to meet, learn, and share with my fellow classmates. Your students are lucky to have you as their teachers. I'm looking to connecting with you all via our new alumni Group. 

 I wanted to share my day1 reflection, now that the server is working. The link did not work when I first shared it. TTYL :)

Ok, I created my reflection using GoAnimateEDU. There appears to be a server error. I hope this link works. 
GoAnimate for Schools is a safe environment for students to fully express their creativity through video and a great place for educators to share educational videos with other educators worldwide.

Hey Joquetta, I love your animoto about Hip Hop Day in the library! Looks like an amazing program. I saw that you use Kahoot with your students -- I use it too and my students love it! One of the easiest ways to get them to enjoy learning. I wish I had half the energy and innovation that you have. Sorry I missed you at ISTE and I am looking forward to working with you later this month.
