  25. a1: it's always better to get multiple perspectives on an idea - give you things to think about #txeduchat
  26. A1 I love to collaborate with my librarian bc she has access to a wealth of resources I can't even begin to know about! #txeduchat
  27. Q1 Collaboration is about  http://S.H.A.R.E.ing : Synergizing, helping, asking/answering, reciprocating, and edifying! #txeduchat
  28. A1-Build your PLN, work smarter, not harder & learn from one another #txeduchat
  29. A1: collaboration can only make us all stronger Tch. How do I know what's new in science literacy unless we talk to each other? #TXeduchat
  30. A1: When I started as #librarian, someone asked me why I left the classroom“ I didn’t- my classroom just got a whole lot bigger!” #txeduchat
  31. A1 collaborate because there R experts everywhere that can give insight, ideas that U may not have thought about #bettertogether #txeduchat
  32. A1: collaboration is how the real world works. It's a reality for all people in business and now for our world through the net #txeduchat
  33. A1: TLs are Teachers first. We just expand our reach. We collaborate because we are about access to information for both Ss & Ts. #txeduchat
  34. A1: if librarians don't collaborate, we become sitting ducks attached with a stereotype. It's a requisite on today's campus #txeduchat
  35. A1:Ever since meeting @MatthewWinner on #dotday I’ve decided my classroom is even bigger than I imagined! #globalclassroom #txeduchat
  36. A1: play off of each others strengths to benefit the Ss. learn from each other. #txeduchat
  37. A1: Always better together - it's amazing just how much I learn DAILY from the people at wound me! #txeduchat
  38. A1: Collaboration helps us gain perspective and become better at reflection, something we all need to do more of. #txeduchat
  39. Why collaborate? A strong professional network will catch you when you're falling & propel you when you're flying! Work together! #txeduchat
  40. @gravescolleen A1 because librarians are great resources for teachers and want to support them #txeduchat
  41. A1: Collaboration can give us new ideas in the least expected places! #txeduchat
  42. A1b: We collaborate because we can support student learning, curriculum, standards, etc. w/ our resources! #txeduchat
  43. A1: 2-3 minds are better than 1. Always learn much when I collaborate #txeduchat
  44. A1 Collaboration allows us to give to one another. The giving is what fuels us. #txeduchat
  45. @jamielocklin You hit it just right! Now if only classes reflected it as well. Kids need more opportunities to collaborate. #txeduchat
  46. @JenaiaMorane @gravescolleen @txeduchat who reads anymore. Just watch the movie. They are accurate to the book tight?? #txeduchat
  47. A1: I collaborate w/ my librarian to build a vibrant literacy community for our school #txeduchat
  48. #txeduchat Collaboration=at heart of what 21st cent edu needs 2B. We're better together & librarians=terrific source of info & inspiration.
  49. Collaborating allows us to talk to others who see students in a different light (as a reader), and have access other resources #txeduchat
  50. A1: Collaboration helps us see that others are struggling, too (and that struggle leads to success!) #txeduchat
  51. A1: Librarians are crucial to your success in the classroom. They are a wealth of knowledge for all content areas. #txeduchat
  52. A1: Collaborate because we are better collectively. Want to help & so many amazing educators that can help me help my own Ss! #txeduchat
  53. A1-Great synergy when you collaborate & everyone gains from the experience #txeduchat
  54. A1 (Pt 2) I can touch more Ts and Ss with my librarian as a parner! I love both of the ones I get to work with! #txeduchat
  55. A1: Collaboration between Ts models the power of group thinking/brainstorming & being open to divergent thinking for Ss #txeduchat
  56. Hey #txeduchat! Thank you for all that you do for the students of the Lone Star State! #TeacherAppreciationWeek
  57. A1 my librarian @KergySmith is a great partner-always has the new reads for my students & supports digital literacy! #txeduchat
  58. A1 We Ts always want more time & resources to design experiences for Ss ... our librarians are right there to help us with both. #txeduchat
  59. A1: Collaborate so that you don't get lonely and start talking to your volleyball. #Gestalt #txeduchat
  60. @becalzada That's right! There is no way I can know everything, but I can connect with those who can help find what I need. #txeduchat
  61. @rwootenits Me too Rachelle, amazing expertise & passion for learning coming from our libraries! @utalaniz #txeduchat
  62. @gravescolleen A1 librarians have space that can have tools set up for students to walk in and use and the ability to support Ss #txeduchat
  63. Consider the library the largest classroom on campus and fill it to capacity by collaborating w/everyone, not just teachers #txeduchat
  64. A1 Collaboration helps teachers and librarians build stronger lessons! #txeduchat
  65. @Tiger4n6 #txeduchat Yes & they are also slightly outside the fray, able to have bigger picture & offer support as well as knowledge.
  66. A1: Two brains are always better than the sum of their parts. #txeduchat
  67. @Michelle_Colte I love that "divergent thinking"! It's always great to see more of that! #txeduchat
  68. A1: collaborating & coteaching give students a full "palate" of learning opportunities #txeduchat
  69. #txeduchat A1 Why collaborate? It amplifies our voices. It leverages our efforts. It minimizes instructional follies we can be prone to.
  70. Our librarian @BrendaJCoffman is such a vital part of our school such is our teacher of the year! #txeduchat
  71. A2: With a shared understanding and a shared vision #txeduchat
  72. A2 Good collaboration starts with an open-mind and open ears! #simpletruth #txeduchat
  73. Q2: Good collaboration starts with the admission that you can't do everything yourself. #txeduchat
  74. A2: Good collaboration starts with ME (you)! We need to reach out and make connections. Don't let anything stand in your way. #txeduchat
  75. A2 Good people skills and communications skills are also helpful! #txeduchat
  76. Q2: Good collaboration flourishes when like minded folks challenge each other to do more than the status quo allows. #txeduchat
  77. A2: starts with a shared vision and goals. Building a relationship is key. #txeduchat
  78. Yes and I find my Ss stretch my thinking the most when given the opportunity @rwootenits #txeduchat
  79. A1: I choose to collaborate because it allows me to learn from others & takes away the pressure of having to "know" it all! #txeduchat
  80. A2: Inspiration and good collaboration are lurking at every opportunity. #txeduchat
  81. @txeduchat We have had several selected as Teacher of the Year in our district! #txeduchat
  82. You can grow your PLN (Personal LIBRARIAN Network) by following others in #txeduchat tonight!! Librarians RULE!
  83. A2: Good collaboration starts with willingness to see change and make it happen. Start with ONE THING & make the craft better. #txeduchat
  84. @gravescolleen A2 get know what activities a teacher likes to use. Then you know where to start. Need to build bridges #txeduchat
  85. A2: Good collaboration starts within. One must understand that a whole is only as good as the sum of its parts. We need others! #txeduchat
  86. #txeduchat A2: With awareness each person brings something unique. Librarians=very well suited 2 jobs. Be open, willing 2 listen & share.
  87. A2: When you sit down together and make a plan, or maybe a casual lunch convo? Or even a chance meeting at a conference? ;) #txeduchat
  88. A2: good collab starts before school begins. Be part of in-service to remind those who know & the new ones who don't. Activate! #txeduchat
  89. A2: Good collaboration starts with establishing a positive relationship first. This is a must. #txeduchat
  90. A2: Collaboration starts with a willingness and a desire to work together. Cliche, but true. #txeduchat
  91. a2: collaboration comes from the willingness to accept that you aren't perfect #txeduchat
  92. A2-Sometimes collaboration starts with a need and things take off from there #txeduchat
  93. A2: Good collaboration starts w/willingness to ask for/offer help. By going next door, to library, on Twitter, etc & asking #txeduchat
  94. A2: A shared desire to give students the best edu possible and an open mind #txeduchat
  95. @matthew_arend #txeduchat Yes! So important to model that for our Ss too. Ha s2 stop believing it's a race 2 #1. We are in this together.
  96. A2: I think it starts in the very beginning with relationship building - can't truly have one consistently without the other #txeduchat
  97. A2: listening/ participating in conversations, learning the curriculum, knowing the needs of the school #txeduchat
  98. A1: Yes @matthew_arend & essential for today's Ss too--to learn the "process of learning" rather than memorize the content #txeduchat
  99. Have a great week #txeduchat Sorry, can't make today's chat.
  100. A2: Collaboration starts with putting yourself out there, admitting you don't know something and want to learn! #txeduchat
  101. Since it's Sunday, couldn't hurt to refer to a Bible principle: one body many parts, and we all need each member of the body. #txeduchat
  102. #txeduchat A2 Good collaboration starts out in the open. Improvement/development tends not to grow in the shadows/vacuum. Seek the light.
  103. @dothinkeducate We will be sure to send you a copy of the archive. This is already looking like a great #txeduchat
  104. A2: Good collaboration starts with a willingness and desire to improve. #AlwaysLearning #txeduchat
  105. A2 Collaboration can start over a cup of coffee/other times in a planning mtg. Talking, listening, & presence are key! #txeduchat
  106. A2 Good collaborations start with a "yes and" attitude ... being on board, present, and ready to contribute your best for Ss #txeduchat
  107. Agreed! You have to listen to what teachers and students need - then partner up! @TeamEaglesRead #txeduchat
  108. @R_H_Steele Very true, if we have relationships = more willing to learn/collaborate just as our Ss are if we set up same w/them! #txeduchat
  109. A2: good collaboration starts with established trust and a willingness to hear all ideas! Why collaborate if not open to ideas? #txeduchat
  110. A2: and when you start collaborating with one... Others will want in too! #txeduchat
  111. A2: Collaboration starts with someone's need to know or learn. Then those in the school community work to make it happen! #txeduchat
  112. I DON'T believe that anyone wakes up in the morning and says "I hope I'm mediocre today!" #txeduchat
  113. A2: Good collaboration begins w/ relationships. If we want Ts to collaborate w/ us, we have to show we care about them & Ss. #txeduchat
  114. A2: Collaboration starts w/ a willingness to share & listen to one another to get to a result that meets the needs of your Ss. #txeduchat
  115. Just like our S's sometimes don't feel like collaborating, we may not, bc it takes effort and initiation. Usually worth it #txeduchat
  116. Yes! and librarians have to build those relationships w Ss too! That's why I always ask 4 student aides! #txeduchat  https://twitter.com/Tom_Kilgore/status/595034566525472768 
  117. A2: Good collaboration, I think starts w/a desire to try something different ffor the better of the Ss #txeduchat
  118. A2 tell teachers that funny joke you know to break the barriers #txeduchat
  119. A3 Recent collaboration: partnered with my librarian to host a digital learning day open house! #awesomesauce #txeduchat
  120. @bethhill2829 #txeduchat Agree. In past Ts expected 2 dispense wisdom. That must stop. We must "Take chances, make mistakes, get messy!
  121. Dear English Teachers: Save countless hours, teach #CCSS, and grow those little minds. #sced #txeduchat  http://goo.gl/pLK52j 
  122. You don't really want to collaborate w those that aren't willing, do ya @matthew_arend ? #txeduchat
  123. So true! Taking something away from Ts when I approach them w/ a new idea is my most successful tactic! #txeduchat  https://twitter.com/TeamEaglesRead/status/595034137444003841 
  124. #KCA #VoteJKT48ID txeduchat: I DON'T believe that anyone wakes up in the morning and says "I hope I'm mediocre today!" #txeduchat
  125. A3: P1 I loved collaborating w 8th grade Ts & @Bartography to host a Twitter chat for our Ss #txeduchat
  126. A2b: Collaboration also starts w/ knowing what to support. Make yourself an expert on curriculum/standards & bring resources! #txeduchat

  137. A3: A recent collaboration I had was with my fourth grade writing teacher to create Spine Poetry using @tellagami app @plemmonsa #txeduchat

  151. A3 One of our #lisdlib @librarian_lizzy collaborated w Ts and had to teach Old school pen and paper and another #GAFE resources! #txeduchat
  152. @ktlewis14 Cool. I was going to do spine poetry w/ Ss pulling books and stacking them into poem. I like your idea. #txeduchat

  154. I'm collab'ing with art, science, and admin on a possible campus comic con! Fingers crossed for!!! #txeduchat
  155. A3 watching staff work together to create #PBL units - both in grade levels & vertical #txeduchat

  163. A4: Schools must be creative in providing time for collaboration. #txeduchat
  164. A4: I think schools need to value TIME & see that teachers have more of it to talk to each other to build a stronger community. #txeduchat
  165. @gravescolleen makes it an uphill battle, but sometimes the battle is worth the end result! #StudentSuccess #txeduchat
  166. #txeduchat A4 Local TEDs? Communities of practice where Ts get up and share stuff. Poster sessions maybe? Basically visual PD.
  167. A4: I want to try an EdCamp style time monthly where teachers come together, share ideas & learn from each other. On to do list! #txeduchat
  168. A3: Have to pick just 1? Recently collaborated w/ 3rd gr Ts to kick-off Biography unit. Introduced & support thru final project! #txeduchat
  169. A4: Schools need to figure out what strategies work best for their staff when considering collaboration, especially with tech. #txeduchat
  170. Q4: Provide opportunities for Ts to lead PD & share their creativity w/others=collaboration of sharing  http://bit.ly/1xNc09P  #txeduchat
  171. @leanna_kent sometimes, though, it seems we've lost the ability to have hard conversations... They're too, well, hard. #txeduchat
  172. A4: Use social media like Google+ communities so teachers can easily share resources/ideas #txeduchat
  173. #txeduchat Promoted #poetry in the library for #poetrymonth while teachers taught the writing and the forms. Kids shared their poetry w/me!
  174. A4 lack of time definitely inhibits. El. Librarians in ancillary rotation have very limited opportunities #txeduchat
  175. @TMag29 @leanna_kent I think they can be, but if trust is there they may be a bit easier... right? #txeduchat
  176. A4: Have an Edcamp-style staff development at staff meetings or within district to encourage collaboration and innovation #txeduchat
  177. @rayram reflection (in an honest and critical way) is probably the most powerful tool for teachers to improve steadily over time #txeduchat
  178. A4: Social media is a great way to collaborate. Twitter and Google+ in particular! I also like using Google Drive. #txeduchat

  183. #txeduchat A4: Can see A LOT of collaborating going on already. Need way 2 collect & make resources available from projects 4 future Ss & Ts
  184. A4: Principal sets the tone for collaboration, which may include hiring folks who see the importance of teamwork & giving Ts time #txeduchat
  185. A4 need to have more vertical alignment/planning time-love to see ES work with MS and HS #txeduchat
  186. @Michelle_Colte Agree w/u -T's are doing fantastic things w/Ss & others need to hear about it #txeduchat
  187. a4 : we have common planning periods and collaboration time on Friday afternoons #txeduchat

    A4: 3 ways our campus collaborates: -peer observations -sharing successes at #WEteachCSISD -teacher led PD #txeduchat pic.twitter.com/2HtMUdO46f
  189. A4: Our district is going to host an #edcamp in August before Fall PD to encourage Ts to share what is working for them! #txeduchat
  190. A4 Our school division has PD money for Ts to get half day planning sessions with our TLs. Time is always hard. #txeduchat
  191. A4: An important thing to remember about staff collaboration is we can't use the excuse of no time to meet w/ technology today! #txeduchat
  192. A4: We are going to try a student led PD in the fall--teachers will see the possibilities! #txeduchat
  193. Love this idea @rwootenits Grade level teams or teams based on content or interests? #txeduchat
  194. my tweetdeck is acting up - i'm seeing things favored in my notifications before they show in the feed O.o #txeduchat #YayTech
  195. Speaking of importance of PLNs - #txeduchat and #iaedchat are happening now -great for toggling between -always great people #edslowchat
  196. @BrickYourBrain #txeduchat Yes! I'd like to see a central repository where all can go to see & learn from others' collabortions.
  197. @gravescolleen A4 talk to teachers. They won't bite. Look at their classroom see what they are into doing #txeduchat
  198. A4 Start by creating opportunities for teachers and librarians to build relationships via chats or at work. Coffee talk! #txeduchat
  199. A4: What are those burning questions that Ts have? Help them answer them within a learning team. Facilitate group learning time. #txeduchat
  200. In the spirit of collaboration be sure to add @EdCampDallas to your calendar on Nov. 14 in Plano #txeduchat
  201. @Michelle_Colte Depends on the campus. We have had teams like campus safety, morale, technology...things like that. #txeduchat
  202. I keep track of things in library GoogleSite, Twitter account, Vine, G+. Social MEDIA! #txeduchat @JenaiaMorane
  203. A4 Twitter chats, observations, weekly PLC time-- but honestly tech is the best way to collab #txeduchat
  204. A5 As natural curators, #librarians would be an ideal hub for collaborative activities. #txeduchat
  205. @txeduchat Hopefully that's coming in 2015-16. Needing to collaborate a little more to make sure the 1st attempt is a success! #txeduchat
  206. A4: I helped my Ts get started on @twitter and now we are going to use it as some of our summer PD. #mwetchrs @pam_redd #txeduchat
  207. A4: Time for collaboration is one thing, but leadership is also important to make sure the time is structured & productive #txeduchat
  208. Awesome! I keep meaning to have a nacho lunch, "In queso you forgot your lunch." @MagicPantsJones #txeduchat
  209. A5: I like to see new books available by category and grade level. Twitter accounts with "what's on the hold shelf." #TXeduchat
  210. Q5 resources resources resources-quality text at multiple levels on same topic-build background knowledge & vocab #txeduchat
  211. @rwootenits It's been really encouraging to see teachers jump in and share. #txeduchat
  212. #txeduchat A5 Being an educator outside of K-12 I don't know what I don't know (how a librarian can help me).
  213. @gravescolleen #txeduchat So important. Want a global place to collect and share (I know I know not quite there yet but I can dream).
  214. I'm going to lurk and learn on the question of what support you need from librarians.... #txeduchat
  215. A5: Support I need is exactly what @utalaniz does! Makes my job easier as classroom educator & instills love of reading w/Ss #txeduchat
  216. @gravescolleen #txeduchat Encourage getting connected bring a colleague to #NT2t Sat mornings at 9 EDT. Doing twitter is better than telling
  217. @bethhill2829 yes! @R_H_Steele and I along with 9 other campuses have this in works for back to school in August! #txeduchat
  218. A4: Been trying to promote collaboration thru Lead Teams, by allowing staff choice during PD, & by protecting collaboration time. #txeduchat
  219. a5 I <3 the @columbuslibrary - amazing staff, helpful, always willing to give ideas for books and lessons! #txeduchat
  220. #txeduchat A5 The @CapellaU librarians were very helpful during my studies. Dunno how they help alumni. Maybe if I ask?
  221. @nathan_stevens Libraries used to have card catalogues, now they have Legos! I worked in the library as a student! #txeduchat
  222. A5 there are so many literacies out there. Librarians can help you keep up #txeduchat
  223. A5: Sharing what resources the library has that will complement ELA curriculum, esp for research, tech/ebooks/audiobooks and #txeduchat
  224. A5: (cont) Helping Ss learn about research, digital literacy, love of reading, #makered & SO much more! #txeduchat Could go on & on!
  225. Q5 need to be using ‘non-traditional” literacy tools to support student learning-magazines/videos/primary source docs #txeduchat
  226. A5: Ways to support efforts in students conducting research; safe sites, primary sources, etc. Foster curious nature of kids! #txeduchat
  227. A5: Great ways a librarian can support a campus: -Love working with the Ss! -Willing helper -Tech expert -Will try new ideas #txeduchat
  228. .@matthew_arend build a culture of trust & sharing where opportunities r available for Ts to collaborate #txeduchat
  229. @txeduchat Just as no child wakes up in the morning and says, I want to grow up and be a homeless person on the street. #txeduchat
  230. Q5 very luck to work with and have worked with amazing #librarians-alwasy going above & beyond #txeduchat
  231. A5: the most impactful support we need is what librarians do best - get Ss excited about reading & new books. #txeduchat
  232. A5 Just providing a positive, creative, & collaborative physical SPACE for projects is so helpful to Ts & Ss. #txeduchat
  233. What's the best way to share? Come to planning? Newsletter? Cuz I swear no one reads my newsletter.... #txeduchat  https://twitter.com/MarceauQD/status/595039265496510464 
  234. A5: Often Ts don't know how to use TLs. I created a "Library Services" menu for my new staff to show them how I could support. #txeduchat
  235. @gravescolleen Awww, thanks, Colleen! I have a great PLN -- and you are definitely a part of that! #txeduchat
  236. #txeduchat A5 Then again, a Chandler, AZ librarian did help me get an online library card. Found @austinkleon that way.
  237. #txeduchat Been so impressed by @butterfli820 Goes out of her way 2 stay on top of tech & find reading material 4 various grades.
  238. A5: We are always in need of tech! Luckily our librarian @AMCHSLibrary always makes it work for us! #txeduchat
  239. I was thinking Ss using social media in school would teach them great dig citizenship skills! @MarceauQD #txeduchat
  240. A6 teach Ss 2 read in different way-so different from narrative text-how 2 cite sources & support arguments-also quality sources #txeduchat
  241. A6: Finding reliable web sources, knowing WHY it needs to be reliable, and how to cite sources to avoid plagiarism #txeduchat
