  • And that is what I suggest for you to do today. Your assignment for this webinar today is to come up with your “Big Three” at the end of the webinar. Pick three things – start there!

  • Captions: http://blog.kissmetrics.com/shocking-truth-about-graphics/
  • Flattening your classroom is connecting yourself. And the first step is to connect yourselves to others.
    Your teachers should also connect themselves. Have an RSS reader, join the diigo educators group, listen to the current conversations at edtechtalk – join Twitter and follow at least 50 educators before you make your call on it – watch videos at the free k12 online conference and encourage networking in organizations like the Google teacher Academy, Discovery Educators, Flat Classrooms Ning.
  • We’re too busy having a pity party to exert the influence to have a victory party.
