We finish the night with Dea Shareski going off on the idea of rigor. Learning is morbid and stiff. @shareski
Vicki Davis rules: Number 1: Work with the willing. Number 2: Never talk down to people. Meet them where they are. Make it simple.
Vicki Davis has to be one of the most productive connected educators I know. It reinforces my idea that connected education has to involve passion and grit. It must be a major “hobby.”
Vicki Davis schedules her tweets and blog posts throughout the day.
Vicki Davis: Genius Hour brings joy to the classroom.
Vicki Davis: you do not need to spend a fortune on a simulations. Students using blogs, twitter, to explore conflicts. “You don’t get followers you EARN followers.”
Vicki Davis @coolcatteacher discussing the 20 minute goal driven classroom and genius hour. Students propose projects and get involved involved.
@shareski: Blogging is the best way, not the only way, but the best way to be a reflective educator.
@shareski Learning is collecting joyful moments.
BRB need to make sure Fantasy line up is set.
@Shareski discussing how learning should be joyful. Often solutions are joyful but getting ther can be frustrating. I find that learning happens often when I push through frustration. I wonder what makes me, as a learner, push through frustration.
Kirsten Tschofen @KristenTP is listening to the webinar from the bathroom. Learning anywehre and anytime. Best definition of Connected Learning.
@shareski,” I feel like there is a real strong trend that teachers are struggling with morale.”Being a connected educator helps me improve my morale. @Shareski says it helps to empower teachers.
@shareski is presenting on an iPad from a men’s locker room.
People are posting ideas bout cyberbullying, Google Hangouts, learning about Blackboard Connect.
My live blog. Looking forward to hearing what people learned today.
