Hi Cathy

We use Moodle as well. I <3 Moodle!

(00:04:16) CathyE : 

I hate that your position is being cut

Hi all!

(00:09:39) Jeff: 

Hi Sheila

(00:19:21) CathyE : 

somebody around you will have a cell phone to record your dumbness

(00:30:19) CathyE : 

Drew, Is your school moving toward Common Core?

(00:32:41) CathyE : 

technology is a big part of common core

(00:33:10) CathyE : 

if teachers are going to be evaluated at the highest level they will need to understand the internet
]

(00:35:05) CathyE : 

teacher evaluations using Common Core is pushing my teachers to expand their technology use

(00:36:22) CathyE : 

just in case you want to know more about Common Core:http://er.daretolearn.org/home/resources-1/commoncore

(00:38:53) CathyE : 

that is so true - a worksheet via the smartboard is not integrating technology

(00:39:11) Sheila : 

I clicked on Cathy's link and lost the chat room. How do you get back to the chat without refreshing?

(00:39:29) Jeff: 

back button?

(00:40:25) Sheila : 

Can't no button on the chat space. . . Don't want to go back and lose the stream. Just odd. I'm back, refreshed.

(00:44:03) CathyE : 

Are Drew's media coordinators skilled in the use of technolgoy

(00:45:35) Christian (@tokyoedtech) : 

Sorry, gotta run - great chat! Take care.

(00:45:37) CathyE : 

His teachers are really going to miss him. I'm sure he is a safety net for them.

(00:45:56) Jeff: 

Thanks for stopping by Christian
