jmad: Hello, world
7:00
edtechjoe: Hey Gang.. Jose in my worldbridges studio in L.A.
7:02
edtechjoe: crazy time indeed.
7:04
edtechjoe: I reached out to Doug Symington this week
7:05
edtechjoe: Also Vance Stevens
7:07
schinker: Great to see you, Jose. Thanks for coming out.
7:08
edtechjoe: I saw a tweet from Susan VanGelder this morning
7:11
edtechjoe: I use a chromebook.. but, I couldn't resist and got a MacBook Pro this week for my Bday 
7:15
edtechjoe: wow...
7:18
edtechjoe: Now imagine teaching a special needs class of 8 year olds and transiting to online learning to end the school year.
7:20
Durff: Young ones - SeeSaw
7:20
edtechjoe: Hey Durff
7:20
Durff: hey there
7:21
edtechjoe: oh yeah... PBS has special programming with activities in Southern California
7:21
edtechjoe: "free" for now
7:21
Durff: I am urging my grad students, who are teachers, to stick with what they know
7:22
edtechjoe: actually everything is "free" but the learning curve is pretty high for most teachers.
7:22
Durff: we have used many tools in class
7:22
Durff: Relate before you educate
7:22
Durff: that is true in all environments
7:23
edtechjoe: I really like Loom as a pretty cool screencasting tool. Generates a unique url right away
7:23
edtechjoe: https://www.loom.com/
7:23
Durff: oh yes
7:23
Durff: I love loom and teach to all my students
7:25
Durff: He is right
7:26
Durff: I changed things and fellow instructors asked me how could I do that
7:26
schinker: Good suggestions. We do use SeeSaw with some of our kids. I've been careful to not try to adopt new tools right now unless thee's a real need, and to try not to do things that can't be sustained long term.
7:26
Durff: in my own courses
7:26
Durff: Seesaw is great for ECE
7:27
Durff: also good tools Flipgrid, Kahoot
7:27
edtechjoe: Yep... stick with what you are doing already.
7:27
Durff: projects are summative assessments
7:27
schinker: Kahoot is a little tricky if they're not in the same room.
7:28
Durff: not so
7:28
Durff: I teach online
7:28
Durff: use challenge instead to make asynchronous
7:28
schinker: no? Do you stream the questions? Their devices just have the choices, right?
7:28
schinker: Ahh... okay
7:29
edtechjoe: My principal is a micro-manager already but think in designing learning experiences for my students I kind of like the menu option for asynchronous learning. Just provide opportunities to learn and show some form of evidence
7:29
Durff: https://kahoot.it/challenge/0224833?challenge-id=f9c4f5ed-080b-4eed-bd56-42c1fe66cea9_1584916156319
7:29
Durff: I challenge you Schinker
7:30
edtechjoe: The great thing about elementary is that grades are not high stakes especially with state testing being cancelled this school year
7:30
Durff: waves to wife
7:32
Durff: if we take classes online - why can't we break them into manageable chunks?
7:32
Durff: I agree Dave
7:32
Durff: so don't use tests
7:33
Durff: I use Kahoot for formative assessments
7:34
Durff: I heard he makes students cry
7:36
Durff: same thing with teachers
7:36
Durff: most colleges do weed those out
7:37
Durff: text them
7:37
edtechjoe: To Do Week of March 23 ...1) Survey parents.. do you have internet.. do you have a device for online learning. 2) agree with grade level teams what we want students to do / assignments
7:38
edtechjoe: We have a two week window for planning then we go live mid April after our Spring Break
7:39
Durff: fortunate
7:41

7:41
Durff: my goal this week? Train hosts for VWBPE 2020 conference in SL - and don't you ALL have avatars? Join the conference Thursday, Friday, Saturday - no social distancing from other avatars needed

edtechjoe: @John.. lots of unanswered questions for Special Education. Free and Appropriate Public Education FAPE
7:42
Durff: That new Bb is challenging
7:42
schinker: Yep. For sure. And a lot of it is just knowing that we can't do everything we should be doing. So what are the ESY resources, and how are we going to fill in the gaps later?
7:43
Durff: I missed being able to email students from inside Bb
