meeting new ppl

16 Jul

among the many ppl i’ve met, i am hoping to expand our webcam friends for training.  our adventure with skyping in jeri was so successful that i was thinking about who else we could bring in.  i met a high school teacher, john, who uses a completely paperless classroom.  alex teaches at a school for twice exceptional students.  there are lots of luminaries in the field that we have had the chance to meet, but i think it would be great to have other teachers from around the country be able to join our trainings and share what they are doing in the classes that work.  also, check out – there is a “confratute” live feed you can view.  what this feed does it pulls key words from twitter, so if you use the word “confratute” in your tweet it goes to the coveritlive page, try it please.  go tweet something about you knowing someone is having a nice time at confratute and see how it will show up.  i was in a session today, but was curious about the tour de france, so i was able to find a few tour feeds on coveritlive (accessed from my iphone) and watch (sparingly as i was ENTHRALLED with the speaker) what others were saying about the action.  there are LOTS of other features as well.  i spoke to the tech folks, brian and kristina, last night about it and they put it up today.  i’m seeing possibilities for my work…
