Summer is in the air! With Letters to the Next President 2.0 rolling on with multiple partners and opportunities http://letters2president.org/opportunity/letters-to-the-next-president-2-0-summer-make-cycles-for-educators/, and summer youth camps.
What are you planning to do this summer ... to learn yourself... to learn with others... to facilitate learning... to play... to work with youth?
How might Youth Voices support your efforts? http://youthvoices.net/2nextprez
How can we as a community help our students find each other's' writing and media this summer and have productive conversations?
How can we use the summer to inspire us for the fall and beyond?
We invite you to add your voice and your questions, and to join us in this open meeting tonight, Wednesday, June 1, 2016 at 9pm Eastern/6pm Pacific at http://edtechtalk.com/ttt
Have your students record a 1-2 minute video about what school should be, and they might end up in our key note. Other ways to participate as well.
Our discussion on TTT this week will be about Open Educational Resources (OER) use in K-12, especially vs. boxed commercial curriculum. We'll be talking about open learning, faith in teachers, goals of administrators and community stakeholders--and the desire for all kids to be "on the same page," often literally of a commercial textbook, standards and testing, what's best for learners, remix and reuse, and more.
This conversation was prompted by an email from Deb Schiano, which asked these initial questions:
--What does a district gain by using OER's with respect to $'s and student learning?
--How would you recommend beginning the process? For example, is there a platform you recommend for curating resources? Finding resources etc.
--How do you best get teacher buy in?
These questions prompted a long email exchange as well as a couple blog posts and now this extended conversation!
Joining us will be , , , and others, hopefully including you!
