Districts with lower state test scores have more students opting out of NY state standardized tests.
Chingos utilizes data from the New York opt-out movement to analyze the relationships between a district’s proportion of opt-outs and the socioeconomic status and prior test scores of students in that district.

3 spots left for this weekend! !!     "+ My Newsletter"

Raptors in Flight workshops

Feb 28th and March 1st, 2015 - Near Simone Ontario.
More new dates to be set up soon.

These workshops take place inside a falconers training area, he has his birds fly for my guests for 3 full hours.  Some birds will do their flight as many as 25-30 times.

This is a beautiful male snowy owl, just coming up to his second birthday. 

We usually do 2 programs for each weekend of workshops, since many people from across Canada and the United States will fly into Toronto, and join these workshops.

These videos are good, but give the impression you're looking at someone working upside down.  I wonder if there's a way to flip the video on it's head?

Thanks. All of these videos have already been flipped, if they didn't then the work they were doing would be upside down instead! Flipping the video is easy in QuickTime.

Have you considered enlisting those you think are at a good place in their training to help? Also, I wonder if there is an opportunity to poll the staff to hear their top3-5 challenges that they's hope technology in the classroom can solve. Take those and create a few 'recipes' showing how you can use the Chromebooks and Canvas to address their needs. Can be a good way to get them engaged and interested.
 
Asking for help with getting my high school math, social studies and science teachers on board with using technology in their classroom.  We are a 1:1 school with chromebooks, and use Canvas as our learning management system.  I've worked with Language Arts, and our CTE department and I feel comfortable with where I have them.

I am wanting to come up with a training schedule to work with each department during their planning periods, but I'm unsure of what would be most helpful at this time for each subject area. 

Feel free to email me or post on here suggestions.  gina.hutchens@yadkin.k12.nc.us

Brilliant tactic by +Spotify - Create the most annoying and poorly produced ads possible and play the same ones completely in order to annoy the listener so much they'll pop for the premium version.   #wellplayed

I think the same thing! And the ads has nothing to do with the songs I hear on spotify. I think the strategy is to offer the premium version just to get rid of the ads... :)
