Wondering if either of these ideas resonate as sessions for Open Ed 14.

I'm hoping for an open discussion rather than a presentation. Any thoughts (or co-facilitation interest) are welcome!

Here's a new K-12 Open Educational Resource ( #OER  ) community that I'm just getting started. Would love to have you all join; post questions, comments, etc.; make suggestions, etc.

And please share with others!

Just a reminder that the #ooe13 twitter chat is in 10 minutes. (If you haven't done one of these before, www.tweetchat.com or www.twubs.com are both useful sites to try.)

Thinking about an #opened14 session on adoption of OER in K-12 (what's working and what's not). Anyone have thoughts? Interested in a possible panel and/or audience participative session?

Greetings, everyone. I just wanted to introduce myself. I'll be doing a session next Wed. April 16 at 6pm Pacific about open educational resources and open learning in K-12.

Would love to hear what questions you have and/or what your experience with OER is.

What a delightful surprise to find this restaurant in the old Wimpy's building in downtown Dayton. The food was local and delicious, a carefully designed menu of excellence! BYOB. And the restaurant is very small, so make sure to make reservations in advance. We hope they open a bigger 2nd location soon!

We were recently driving through Tennessee and were happy to find this restaurant. The food was delicious, and the service was excellent. This was a great find in an otherwise boring bunch of chain restaurants in town.

We love Galiano's. Great smoothies, food, and coffee -- and a comfortable space to just hang out. This is just what Douglas needed!

I've been coming to the Winds for over 20 years, since it was in the old location, and it has been excellent throughout. Now that I live out of town, I always try to take time to go to the Winds when I'm in town. The food is healthy, local, and most importantly, delicious. If you're in town, definitely make a trip to the Winds for a dinner to remember.

We have bought two fireplaces at Earth Energy's Fireplaces. Both times their service and product were top-rate. Their staff is professional and well-informed. Because we live far from Tucson, they have been able to help us with extra services like shipping us extra parts we needed and even waiting for us past regular hours to accommodate us. This is the first place I'd go in AZ if I needed a fireplace or related products.

Great, fresh, healthy, affordable food. If you haven't been here before, go and have the staff explain the menu and the options. Yum!
