[Alex Ragone] Hi John.
[JohnSchinker] Okay, I'm listening now :)
[JohnSchinker] We just met on Sunday.
[JohnSchinker] I'm a technology director for a public school district in northern Ohio
[Alex Ragone] Thanks for intro John.
[arvind] hi john, will be a little more attentive to the chatroom now that the kids are gone
[JohnSchinker] No big deal -- you guys talk; I don't really have much to contribute. I just happened to still be logged in after the kids left.
[arvind] they were so excited to have listeners
[arvind] thanks for being there
[JohnSchinker] no big deal -- I was eating lunch, and looking around wb, and saw that it was on. I didn't plan to actually tune in or anything :)

[JohnSchinker] 21st century skills: I like the Time article definition. (1) An improved knowledge of global cultures and societies. (2) Critical thinking, problem solving skills, and the ability to innovate. (3) Information literacy, including finding, filtering, evaluating, synthesizing, and drawing conclusions from information. (4) The ability to work with others as a team.
[lee] i can relate to that
