  237. A3: feedback only works if it is personal. What works for one doesn't work for all. Make it meaningful and specific. #txeduchat
  238. @SISQITMAN Yes, Ss did a much better job on their interviews than if they had just done them with me. #txeduchat
  239. A3: best feedback for kids=your opinion + 3 names of others who will give their opinion. #txeduchat
  240. @BSGSCSFoster @3M Yes, it connects the "why" to learning. Helps to show students it is not an exercise in futility. #txeduchat

  247. @gravescolleen excellent word, "tried." Learned and will try some more! #txeduchat
  248. A3 But feedback really needs to drive revision. Shouldn't just be something we do just to do! #txeduchat
  249. @kristenswanson A3 talk to them as they are working the activity. It is the best way to understand what they know #txeduchat
  250. A3: Record your students presentation or work with iPad/camera and share with them/parents for feedback. (With permission) #txeduchat

  258. A3: The gift of feedback is so critical & it offers time 4 reflection...yet, I find myself struggling w/ this task....ugh! #txeduchat
  259. A3: best feedback is specific and timely. Get on their level and provide them feedback in the moment. Impact their learning! #txeduchat
  260. A3 feedback depends on T purpose (motivational, evaluative, ...) but should always be focused, specific, and goal oriented #txeduchat
  261. @Tiger4n6 True reflective powers will emerge when using this approach! Great thinking. #txeduchat
  262. A4: New thing teachers need to create authentic learning experiences... permission to stay quiet and get out of kids' way. #txeduchat
  263. .@daisyray215 thx! My thought extended that it could be online or in person & if no one was avail, I wonder if a TedTalk wld wk #txeduchat
  264. #txeduchat A3 My Ss respond more to suggestions "for next time" from peers than "what's wrong" with their project.
  265. A3: Some Ss prefer feedback from their peers.The trick is finding how each student learns best&tap into their learning superpower #txeduchat
  266. A3: Lots of opportunities for peer feedback when working in collaborative groups or buddy work #txeduchat http://t.co/8uDbFO49uJ

  268. @GrundlerArt Portfolios are powerful and such a great way to showcase growth! #txeduchat
  269. A3. Get the community involved. Utilize Google Hangouts & have Sts give live presentations. #txeduchat
  270. A3) best feedback is like a little shovel encouraging the student to dig a little deeper, stretch a little more, and push on. #txeduchat
  271. #txeduchat CritterKin & #NPHC use multi-media multi-modal storytelling & real-world projects 2 teach both intellecutal & emotional skills.
  272. .@matthew_arend Truth. Try to give as much feedback as possible in process. Most impact. #txeduchat
  273. A3: Modeling the giving of feedback is important so kids will understand how to provide it to their peers. Huge life skill! #txeduchat
  274. @mathfour Did you see my comment about X-ray vision (to see through the BS) :) #TxEduChat
  275. A3 In math, a 4.8 mark out of 5! will grab Ss attention & spark thinking "Why did I get less than 5"? #txeduchat a great way to feedback
  276. A3b: We use visible thinking to help this process too. "I Like, I wish, What if"  http://goo.gl/6KppiM  #txeduchat
  277. A1: Self-esteme makes the biggest difference. Find something they love and let them work on it :-) #txeduchat
  278. #txeduchat A3 When giving feedback, check your adult bias at the door. Don’t be condescending. Be real.
  279. A3: talking w Ss when they are in the producing phase, guiding Qs, so Ss can evaluate. Allow Ss to use rubric to grade own self #txeduchat
  280. A4) shine light back on self..consider the type of opportunities that have given Ts voice...technology, social media, edcamps! #txeduchat
  281. A3 be as specific as possible the sooner the better address student's advancement to a goal involve student in the process #txeduchat
  282. A4 Ss lead edcamps, data driven PD, changing how Pd is delivered. Ss need a voice in the process #txeduchat
  283. A4 Finding out what kids want first, then do your research! #txeduchat

  286. @aaron_hogan #txeduchat A3 definitely follow up, monitor their progress, but also as Ts we monitor our instruction too.
  287. A3: Ask Ss reflective questions, feedback that is meaningful to that Ss, hv Ss reflect on their own work, peer feedbck #txeduchat
  288. A4: treat Ts prof dev like a classroom give them a voice while modeling new skills & conducting hands on learning sessions #txeduchat
  289. #txeduchat A2: We must make edu relevant & can't be afraid 2 ask 4 funds 2 do this. Ss have much 2 learn about value of ideas & RL work.
  290. A4: What types of PD will help us, as teachers, embrace student voice in our classrooms? PD where Ts have an authentic voice! #txeduchat
  291. A4: PD for Ts to embrace tech. So many good tools to help Ss have a voice and create real-world projects. #txeduchat
  292. Hi #txeduchat, I’m Richard from New Zealand and am presenting in Austin @iPadpalooza in June! Woohoo!
  293. Ts love 2 attend #EdCamp bring this style into your classroom as well. Ss teaching each other, facilitating. Amazing! Authentic. #txeduchat
  294. A4) try a student edcamp and classroom opportunities for students to create and showcase learning..flip the script! #txeduchat
  295. @craigyen please don't wait 'til we "grade" a paper. The Ss don't remember what they did if we do! #txeduchat
  296. A4. Big fan of EdCamp style PD. Get Sts involved! Have them develop and lead PD! #txeduchat
  297. A4 Any #PBL PD worth it’s salt would model and critique with voice and choice. #txeduchat
  298. A4) Did someone say PD? Give teachers a choice and a voice. Involve students in the PD process. #txeduchat Love Edcamps.
  299. A4: PD that is driven by OUR voice. When Ts feel like they are driving their learning, might be more open to Ss driving theirs. #txeduchat
  300. @kristenswanson A3: Giving students an opportunity to talk about their work can lead to them seeing it in a new way. #txeduchat
  301. A4 in my experience,when I am able 2work closely w/ a teacher as an instructional coach w/ a clear purpose we accomplish so much! #txeduchat
  302. A4: Edcamps are great for getting Ts what they need...join us at @edcampHOT on Aug 1 in Waco, TX! #txeduchat
  303. A4 Ask them. Send a google form and ask what teachers need. Give them choice! #txeduchat
  304. A4: I think PD where Ts have a voice, such as #edcamp, will help us know how to give our Ss voice in our schools. #txeduchat
  305. A4: Networking/being a connected educator is empowering! We can gain insight from a PLN. Know what teachers want! Ask them... #txeduchat
  306. A4: PD that helps teachers to understand that it's not about what the teacher knows.... #txeduchat
  307. @txeduchat A4: Any PD that keeps Ss at the forefront as individuals who are more important than data and numbers. #txeduchat
  308. @DawnZamora11 Interesting, my whole take on the question was that it was in the context of iterative improvement of a project. #TxEduChat
  309. A4: EdCamp and Twitter chats. When T's have voice and choice its easier for them to foster a culture of voice and choice with Ss #txeduchat
  310. A4:Having Ss lead types of professional development would work. #txeduchat. Have been wanting to try this with Technology. Ss voice is power
  311. A4: PD that involves lots of "sandbox time" and collaboration. Opportunity to create and publish same as we ask our students to. #txeduchat
  312. A4 PD that models what we want Ts to do in classrooms is critical. Example: give Ts voice, ask Ts ??, etc. #txeduchat
  313. #txeduchat A4 Activities with Ss. At some #EdCamps, like #edcampUCLACenterX Ss were in sessions, like Things That Suck, Ss facilitated.
  314. A4: @kristenswanson PD that puts the teacher in the role of the learner & where they have 2 share their voice. Experience it 1st #txeduchat
  315. @kristenswanson A4 collaborative development: have hands on the way learning is suppose to be done. But in multi modes #txeduchat
  316. A4: Learning that helps teachers focus more on what the student knows, rather than what the teacher knows. #txeduchat
  317. Q4: PD in inquiry needs to be continuous...learning how to encourage it, guide it #txeduchat
  318. @kristenswanson #txeduchat @edcampPGH @peteandc @PAECT A4 Ts need access to conferences, self-directed learning, choice in PD, love edcamp!
  319. A4: Having choice in your PD is critical. We have PLAY-dates at our school where teachers teach teachers! #awesome! #txeduchat
  320. A4 instead of 1/2 day in-service were Ss go home have them stay and help in the process #txeduchat
  321. A4: We need PD that -provides a just right challenge -is supported throughout the year -pushes Ts toward collegial conversations #txeduchat
  322. A4 Spend more time celebrating what kids know instead of focusing on what they don't. #txeduchat
  323. A3- not grades. Questions that encourage deeper thinking and promote connections. #txeduchat
  324. A4: ASK STUDENTS! We need to stop doing things that work for most students, we should tailor PD to our student populations. #txeduchat
  325. #txeduchat A4 Learning from other Ts what has positively influenced their Ss to grow. (Twitter:)
  326. A4 PD that allows us as teachers to be developed in the ways we need developing. Not "one size fits all." #txeduchat
  327. Can't underestimate need for Ts to learn right along Ss. Must get over ourselves in believing we teach, they learn. Learn with! #txeduchat
  328. A4: Authentic collaboration & inquiry. Building professional capital as educators #txeduchat
  329. A4 - st. lead conferences-hear how Ss present information- see where tweaking needs to take place for us #txeduchat
  330. Boom! Today I read the suggestion that we ask Ss to edit & revise by changing audience; intriguing. #txeduchat  https://twitter.com/ipapaverison/status/587426907425153026 
  331. A4: Ask kids what they wish their teachers knew! You will get some very insightful responses! #txeduchat
  332. A4 honestly all T PD should focus on quality, authentic Ss centered engagement and learning #txeduchat
  333. A4,Any PD that practices what it preaches. Ts need PD that in engaging for them, so they can return the favor #txeduchat
  334. @aaron_hogan supported throughout the year - vital! our Super @bradmceachern always makes sure of that #txeduchat
  335. If we do what we have always done we will get what we always have #txeduchat
  336. A4: Make the most out of any PD. If it isn't going how you want, change it and make it applicable to you. Challenge yourself #txeduchat
