I loved this ISTE post about the importance of our PLNs and how to connect. https://www.iste.org/explore/ISTE-Standards-in-Action/The-best-PD-comes-from-your-professional-learning-network

Amy in NY--hope you're staying dry.
Peggy George

Great questions to think about!!!
Simon Helton (he/him) - ISTE
37:42
Thanks for that feedback, Paul. Zoom only allows a limited number of options, so it definitely doesn’t take into account every location
Simon Helton (he/him) - ISTE

There is a little background noise, Emily. The challenges of being in a working school and the noises that come with it!

Peggy George

I think it’s really important to start our virtual meetings with those important questions about how they’re are doing—making those personal connections!
Peggy George
45:16
great graphic!
Sharon DeWitt
45:50
…..and not just “How are you?”, but “How are doing you TODAY?”
Simon Helton (he/him) - ISTE
45:58
That’s a great point, Sharon
Sarah Weeks
46:01
What are you feeling?
Sarah Weeks
46:14
Our words make a difference
Peggy George
47:08
Yes Sarah!! I saw this great list of 50 Questions to Ask Someone instead of “How are you?” https://medium.com/the-ascent/50-questions-to-ask-someone-instead-of-how-are-you-9cddc96ccb86
Simon Helton (he/him) - ISTE
47:51
I’ll check if we can do that and if so, I’ll include the slides with the recording link, Sofia
Peggy George
48:06
Wow! what a great story!
Simon Helton (he/him) - ISTE
48:22
That’s another great example of meeting families where they are
Sarah Weeks
48:43
Excellent resource, thanks Peggy!
Peggy George

Hey Janet! The link will get emailed out 24 hours after the webinar :)
Peggy George
51:19
That reminds me of Padlet which is also a great way to share and collaborate
Susanne Teague
51:48
Is there a price for using dot storming?
Simon Helton (he/him) - ISTE
52:12
I’m very impressed how in sync they are. I’d have thought lag would make it hard for choir
Peggy George
52:25
that is really special!!!
Katherine Meehan
52:49
awesome!
RHONDA HILL
52:51
Kids are amazing. Resilient. Love this!!
Peggy George
53:52
I think there is a limited free version and then a paid plan for dotstorming
Simon Helton (he/him) - ISTE
54:14
That’s great insight, Anne
Simon Helton (he/him) - ISTE
54:33
Anne pointed out: “From Anne Urban to All panelists: (10:24 AM)
They've chosen to do a round, which makes the sync less important. A great lesson for choosing projects/activities that work well virtually versus just trying to do everything the same way we always have."
Peggy George
54:59
Is that really hard to create a coordinated musical video like that?
PATIENCE UWAKWE

A good article about TikTok: What Educators Really Need to know about TikTok. https://www.edweek.org/ew/articles/2020/07/29/what-educators-really-need-to-know-about.html
Michele Meshover
01:04:01
Carla- do you have an example of that you can share?
Carla White
01:04:22
Hi Michele, Yes I’ll post it here
Anne Urban
01:04:32
Love these ideas! And even if it's not on TikTok, it provides us with powerful lessons on what kids are drawn to and how we can use that information to make our own activities engaging and relevant.
Peggy George
01:05:44
