If you are interested in learning spaces, check out The K-12 Learning Spaces Symposium being held this July in Hartford, WI at Arrowhead High School. There are 5 presenters that will explore learning spaces, personalized learning and instructional design, and how they all work together to create compelling learning experiences for students. Participants will also have the opportunity to engage in a learning space design challenge and develop their own learning space sketchbook as part of their experience. This should be a terrific event and I'm glad to be part of it. More details are here: http://bit.ly/k12learningspaces

It's a teacher's responsibility to teach students how to use technology as a powerful tool at school.  Feel free to share my site on how teachers can transform their learning environments in some pretty incredibly powerful ways! https://mrcssharesease.wordpress.com

I am in the process of looking for devices to replace up to 60 HP netbooks in my school.  We also have ipads and Chromebooks.  What devices do you use in your school?  I am contemplating Microsoft Streams because I want to keep an intel based device so we do not run into the flash\shockwave issues with ipads and Chromes sometimes. The price point needs to stay in the realm of $300-$450.  Also, do you lease or buy with extended warranty?  We currently buy with warranties for 3yrs but I want to move toward leasing so I don't have graveyards of tech.  Thank you!

We have a 4 year refresh program so our lease has a 4 year extended warranty.  I agree with Colin, Flash is a product of the past with HTML5.  We use a mixture but I really like the Apple MacBook Airs but they are more costly that the $450 range.  However,  I just heard that HP is coming out with a laptop/tablet combination for that price range.  Should be released soon.

Hi everyone,
 
My district is interested in finding out how other schools are approaching BYOD. Do you have specific rules and procedures for implementation? Do those devices include cell phones?
 
If you have a BYOD policy and AUP that addresses BYOD in your district, could you please share it with us?
 
Thank you so much.

I'd really like to share my students' latest PASSION/PURPOSE project with you, just in time for Earth Day! For those of you who are familiar with Keurig Coffee and the K Cup that it comes in, you'll know that it is not recyclable. Recently the inventor has expressed his regret for inventing it due to the environmental problem it has created. Well my students and I have found a solution to the problem! We are repurposing them for many incredible uses in the classroom! They have honestly been a game changer in my math program! You have to check out my students' video: https://vimeo.com/123803148 
We have also developed a web page with lessons, resources, poster and letters to parents to help teachers start saving K Cups in their own classrooms: https://mrcssharesease.wordpress.com/k-cups-4-classrooms/
My students have "saved" 1000+ K Cups and hope to save 1 000 000 world wide.
I am really hoping you will join our #KCups4Classrooms initiative and/or help spread this great idea to help my students' reach their goal and to make a positive difference in the world! 
Please let me know if you have any questions, comments, ideas or suggestions!

"The objective of this report is to examine how changing the state teacher compensations system could influence higher education institutions in Georgia. "  This could be useful policy information for any teacher pay discussion and/or a model for other such reports.
