    I am looking for copyright guidelines and/or tips for a music director who wanted to post concerts online. We're talking through the process, but I could use some better visual, or a chart of some kind to help explain the process. Thanks for sharing any resources you might have available!

    Hello, we need some help grading short answer questions, do you know of any program or app out there that could identify key words or phrases on short answer responses of at least 300 characters?
    (I know neither flubaroo (only grades one-word answers) or edmodo quizzes do this)
    I know I can do up to 140 characters using my student response system (Qwizdom) but wanted to know if there was anything else out there, more type efficient and with at least 300 characters. Thanks!

    Working on the ISTE SIGVE Summer Reading List and Summer Book Club

    Really great tweetchat on Wed Evening! We discussed Games, Games Based Learning and Game Studies. We definitely started a list.So we're consider the next couple of months leading up to ISTE a work in progress. Trish Cloud twitter @trishcloud made a pearl tree http://bit.ly/1lptYty (a visualization of book links tweeted) so people could have easy access to the books discussed.

    Then Kristina Thoennes @kamtonnes took all the suggested books and put them Goodreads listopia https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/71597.Gam... so people could take a look at how they have been rated by other readers and also vote them up for consideration for SIGVE/Inevitable Instructors Games Book Club for this Summer.

    The voting is located at Games MOOC Chat Reading Ideas. Please go in and take a look and vote up the book/s you are interested in.

    Please also add books to list. Thanks!

    Hello Everyone, I am in charge of building a computer lab curriculum k-8. Does anyone have any suggestions or good examples of a scope and sequence or other resources?
    • Mrs. Harvell - Ms. Duhart, you want to make sure and check our Common Sense Media for the digital citizenship component. I agree with Patty about using the NETS*S too. Those are your standards! Also, there is a great resource out there called 21 Things 4 Students (21things4students.net). This is also a good starting point.

    • Mr. Fiore - http://liveminutes.com/, Google products? Or maybe check out Voice Thread and in the future create a PBL where the students and all participants can collaborate to create a presentation on the subject/unit goal?

    • Mrs. Hogan - Good morning - I am looking to find out what your school district does WELL with technology and what you could, or could not, live without. My district has a technology capital project and they are asking teachers for what they want. Frankly, we don't know. We want to position ourselves so that we can have current up to date technologies, but also so that we can move with changing technology. Any advice would be helpful.

    • Mr. Harrison - Honestly, something like an iPad for teachers (along with Apple TV and a projector) covers a great deal of bases. It is a document camera, image/website projector, smartboard-like, etc... all in one. But please make sure that your district is also looking at wireless and support for years to come before just making a "one-time" purchase.

      • Mr. Martinez - Our 9th grade Algebra I will be using the TI-nspire, along with the Navigator component, next year. I really enjoy the quick feedback and 100% engagement. Three of us (Geometry, Alg II, and Chemistry) were given the system to pilot 3 years ago and had good results.

We purchased a Makerbot Replicator 2 and while it's an incredible piece of technology, it requires a bit of a learning curve to get the best results. I'm posting this in case any of your are considering one for your program. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. See the link below:

    • Mr. Cerros - Hello, I am working on my next WebQuest, I would like to ask students a question and have them be redirected to a certain webpage or message based on their answer. Any ideas what program, or how can I do this? I tried google forms but the only type of questions that allow me to do this are “multiple choice” and “choose from a list”, these don’t work for me since I want such questions to be open questions and not have students choose from a list. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    • Mr. Cerros - I am creating the webquest on google sites, throughout the activites I am embedding Edmodo, google docs presentations, videos, google forms, and google maps. Each of my students are assigned an ipad, I would like to create an activity incorporating QR codes; I would ask them something like go and scan the QR code on the principal’s office and complete the activity. At the end of the activity students will receive a ‘passcode’. I already know how to do this.
      However, I would like to tell students something like “enter the following code “………” here, to

    • Mr. Meyers - Last week, the PISA results came out and indicated that the US is slipping further behind other nations in reading, science, and math than we already were. While we can't base our entire lives off of standardized assessments, being ranked 31st in the world at best is not acceptable by any means. But to begin to make strides in this area, a huge paradigm shift in how we think about school is necessary.
