What an exciting group of teachers join us on this episode of TTT, recorded September 25, 2013. We talk about curriculum plans and using http://youthvoices.net together to connect our students and their inquiries.

Thoughts about things to discuss during Connected Educator month:
- referring other teachers/schools to related work -> more sharing
- getting teachers who are not currently connected connected - Isn't this a teacher equity issue?
- connecting with the community, local government, the arts, etc. - issues that matter to us
- teachers as professionals...how does being connected fit into this? does our profession adequately value our being connected educators?
Possible topics for a YV logistics/mgt show:
- How to manage user names and pws (not just on the system but assigning for easy mgt) - could also talk about file naming
- modifying the grid and remixing YV in general
- "what's next?"
- how can we best connect with other classrooms? (e.g. lit circles, art, This I Believe, etc.)
- Croc Docs - sharing, curating, and annotating reserach
- mentor texts (Kim at SDWP?)
