  40. Hello #txeduchat! I'm Heidi from Wisconsin and I teach 5th grade. Is it Sunday night already? WOW, time flies! Happy to be here!
  41. Q 1. How does school culture impact the innovation of the individual educator? Why? Why not? How? #txeduchat
  42. A1: Heck ya- Sometimes I'm a year out more innovative than what's "accepted" makes it hard to feel heard sometimes BUT i'm heard #txeduchat
  43. A1: Do you act differently if you're going to punished than you do if you'll be praised? School culture is everything! #txeduchat
  44. A1: A negative school culture can stifle innovation, creativity, and freedom. It's like taking oxygen from the fire. #txeduchat
  45. @Techbradwaid so when are we getting the AR of you say "AR is your only hope" as in Princess Leia #txeduchat
  46. #txeduchat A1 Absolutely does. It can promote innovation or squander it. You need a culture of willingness to fail and take chances
  47. A1: It can! Culture can build or drain educators! Any innovative teacher who has taught in a negative culture can vouch… #txeduchat
  48. teachers have to be allowed to try and fail and rework their lessons based on best practice. #txeduchat
  49. Hi all! Kelly from Iowa teaching in Texas. Two chats going on at same time. Attempting to join both! #txeduchat #iaedchat
  50. Hello! Jaime Chanter, Curriculum and Technology teacher from Ohio #txeduchat
  51. A1: Absolutely! Schools grow based on the direction they are led, and culture is grown from leadership! #txeduchat
  52. A1: Yes and No. A culture of risk-taking is needed to promote innovation, but it is possible to innovate underground. #txeduchat
  53. A1: the culture of a school can foster growth or stifle creative and innovative ideas. Culture is key! #txeduchat
  54. A1: Campus culture has a direct impact on innovation...support fosters innovation/disinterest or negativity keeps things stale #txeduchat
  55. A1) Culture of school can help encourage innovation and encourage risk taking. It's more fun when everyone is doing it. #txeduchat
  56. @rmbtowner_tech Agreed. There should always be a set time to reflect, rework and re-do lessons. Constant improvement. #txeduchat
  57. A1: absolutely. The environment can stimulate innovation or make you want to hide in your class. #txeduchat
  58. A1: Happy workers work harder! If Ts love their environment & feel their voice matters, the the sky's the limit for Ss Ts & Ps! #txeduchat
  59. @Techbradwaid A1 yes all the time. If someone says no all the time are you going to try something new #txeduchat
  60. First time on this chat..Edwin, Principal in Texas #txeduchat
  61. A1: Simply, yes. Even the best get bogged down in negativity. If there is no room for failure, what room is there for innovation? #txeduchat
  62. A1: I think school culture impacts level of innovation, but doesn't define it! Innovative educators find ways around challenges! #txeduchat
  63. A1. School culture is the essence of any innovation. Without a positive culture in place, innovation can't thrive! #txeduchat
  64. Brian, HS principal from Mass., joining you from the woods of Maine. #txeduchat
  65. A1: Culture is tantamount to innovation...when people feel valued, supported, and encouraged, they are willing to take chances! #txeduchat
  66. Jake from Pennsylvania (not State Farm) - middle school science teacher and education design consultant for @PlusUs Hello All! #txeduchat
  67. Hi everyone! First Twitter chat! Soney first grade teacher from Frisco #txeduchat
  68. A1: A negative culture will destroy creativity and risk taking. We must not be afraid to try new ideas. #txeduchat
  69. @Techbradwaid It can be the motivator or the killer of innovations. #fivemonkeystheory Those who are passionate & share grow it. #txeduchat
  70. A1: Absolutely! You have to be supported in your learning - and a culture and cultivate or kill that instinct #txeduchat
  71. A1:A school will continue to improve with the innovators they have on campus!A culture of growth mindset leads to positive change #txeduchat
  72. A1:Climate/culture impacts all roles/stakeholders. Either facilitates or stifles willingness to take risks to increase Ss success #txeduchat
  73. A1-Innovation thrives in a culture that embraces risk-taking, creativity, & collaboration #txeduchat
  74. @Techbradwaid A1 for example we did quad building last year and now the University is putting in new flying policies #txeduchat
  75. A1: And a culture doesn't even have to be negative. Apathy and ambivalence squelch innovation too. #txeduchat
  76. I believe school culture can either help/hinder the innovative ideas of a leader. The innovative leader must have followers #txeduchat
  77. A1: I believe innovation is the responsibility of the educator. School culture may help or hinder but not a deciding factor. #txeduchat
  78. A1: School culture plays a huge role. If Ts are encouraged to try new things for increased S learning-then chances are Ts will. #txeduchat
  79. A1: ABSOLUTLEY! Culture is what empowers teachers to be innovative. Schools must have a culture that celebrates risk taking! #txeduchat
  80. A1: I think that it can but I also believe that innovative Ts can find ways to influence the school culture & turn things around. #txeduchat
  81. A1: a wise and inspirational leader once strived to create a "culture of care".... It changed our school. Thanks @LorraineShimizu #txeduchat
  82. Positive culture impacts many to innovate; negative culture only inspires the gritty to innovate #txeduchat  https://twitter.com/techbradwaid/status/628009424175632385 
  83. A1: culture can stifle or promote innovative risks and practices. Culture is a driver of teach and student comfort nd risk taking #txeduchat
  84. A1 School culture should encourage risk taking by all stakeholders. Hopefully few islands or silos among Ts in a positive culture #txeduchat
  85. A1: Absolutely it does! The school must set the tone for #innovation so that the #educators within will be open to it #txeduchat
  86. A1: A healthy school culture welcomes innovation like a diving board welcomes kids into a pool. It's scary but a lot of fun, too! #txeduchat
  87. A1: Culture will give Ts energy to feed off of.Innovation takes a growth mindset, and Ts need a school that supports that #txeduchat
  88. A1: definitely. Teachers must feel supported in order to leave their comfort zones and try new things. Growth mindset is key. #txeduchat
  89. A1. Ts will feel safe to take educational risks to engage and challenge students to excel. Mutual trust btwn Ts, Ss, and Admin. #txeduchat
  90. A1 - I believe that through a collaborative and empowered school culture - teachers can innovate and feel supported. #txeduchat
  91. @craigyen A1 if Craig didn't have great school culture do you think we would have gotten a taco bar in his classroom #txeduchat
  92. @elisekallen Welcome! It looks like we have several folks from Katy tonight in #txeduchat
  93. A1: I think I'm at a disadvantage in some respects because I've only been at a school with a positive culture #txeduchat
  94. A1: Of course! Ts are more willing to work together to try, fail, try again, & share in an accepting & encouraging culture. #txeduchat
  95. A1innovation begets innovation. There's only so much an ind T can do without a give & take, & an enviro that supports innovation #txeduchat
  96. A1: School culture can make or break a faculty! It is one of the most important factors that affect how well a school functions #txeduchat
  97. A1 School culture is the mindset of innovation and other forward moving ideas #txeduchat Can't do it alone
  98. #txeduchat creating a maker mindset in schools is essential for Innovation.
  99. A1: Don't get me wrong a gr8 school culture will nurture innovation. A poor school culture will only make it more challenging! #txeduchat
  100. A1. Beginning to think that a culture of exploration is key for risk taking to occur.#txeduchat
  101. A1. All innovation requires risk & risk means being able to face fear. #txeduchat
  102. @HHoffmanrwjh Other tip: be sure to use the hashtag #txeduchat so others see your great ideas. It's the easiest thing to forget.
  103. A1: Culture & climate can impact staff retention as well. Ongoing reflection on culture/climate is vital. #txeduchat
  104. A1: If the culture of school is not supportive of risk taking for teachers then they will not be open to bringing in new ideas! #txeduchat
  105. @MrsJones_Merton but a positive & cohesive school culture helps those Ts b innovative IMO #txeduchat
  106. Dan Krutka from @TWUTeacherEd joining in for a bit. 😀 A1: Good school culture can empower teachers to take chances & innovate. #txeduchat
  107. @jillianburkhart Yes, it's really difficult to build a culture of innovation with constant T turnover. #txeduchat
  108. @tsschmidty Couldn't agree more Dr. Schmidt, the culture of an organization can "make or break" & definitely impact innovation #txeduchat
  109. A1: yes! If the culture does not promote risk taking, failure & trying again, Ts & Ss will be to worried to go the extra mile #txeduchat
  110. @Edtechnerd yeah people thought we were training drones and didn't know what to think #txeduchat
  111. A1) I've seen the case where leadership is negative in a school, but select Ts lift the rest of the staff up and inspire them. #txeduchat
  112. Q2 - Regarding the SAMR model: How could embracing this model help educators become more innovative with tech integration? #txeduchat
  113. #txeduchat A1 You need a strong leader at the top who promotes innovation and it will trickle down quickly. Teach by example at its core!
  114. #txeduchat A1 Yes because if the culture is one of curiosity, trust, respect, & growth, the teachers will feel like they can take risks #ff
  115. @Edtechnerd now we have specific places to fly and have to alert public safety when we are flying #txeduchat
  116. @MrsVerret Culture is important! T’s need to see administrators taking risk! Build the culture for T’s and S’s #txeduchat
  117. @teachintechgal Yes, but innovation comes from within, along w/ passion & desire to do well. If culture is bad, lead by example. #txeduchat
  118. A1School culture is important for all involved Admin, Ts, Ss and parents. The school culture has to be a focus to achieve growth. #txeduchat
  119. #txeduchat A2 The SAMR model lays a good framework and steps to grow with innovation. They can move a their own pace
  120. A1 I think that's where having a PLN that supports ur efforts towards innovation is vital if ur school culture isn't healthy yet. #txeduchat
  121. A1: A negative culture doesn't make it impossible to be innovative, but it lowers morale, which can make you not WANT to be. #txeduchat
  122. A1: A healthy culture = Teacher innovation which = Student innovation #txeduchat
  123. @jen___williams Think you need colleagues/admin etc. on board or the push is tough. #txeduchat
  124. #txeduchat Gretchen from Georgia... A few minutes late, but very interested in the topic!
  125. @Edtechnerd people are all drone/quad crazy but legislation is coming on where and when you can fly #txeduchat
  126. @TheRealMrBanks Very true Chuck, I feel empowered to take risks if the leadership above me supports me #txeduchat
  127. A2: The SAMR model provides structure that inspires and directs educators toward positive growth. #txeduchat
  128. A2: The goal is to work those lessons up to the redefinition level. it takes a lot of time, planning & effort! #txeduchat
  129. A2: It's a great starting point for edus because it makes them think outside the box of "normal" but i'm not a fan ;) #txeduchat
  130. Hi! Jamie from Alberta, Canada in tonight's #txeduchat (following @aaron_hogan 's inspiring Tweets) I've been to TX. :-)
  131. A1 Impact of school culture is powerful. Big difference between building bridges or barriers for learners. #txeduchat
  132. A1) School culture can impact innovation of educators. Adversity is felt when trying to innovate where culture won't allow. #txeduchat
  133. A1: Trying new things/taking risks is so important. Positive school culture gives Ts the freedom and confidence to do so. #txeduchat
  134. @Edtechnerd Absolutely! A leader who is modeling the behavior and attitude the school's culture entails! #txeduchat
  135. A1 Hard to thrive in a negative school culture. Need supportive, visionary leaders. #txeduchat
  136. A2: when Ts and Ss see and experience higher levels in the SAMR model, the growth is infectious and will spill over to others. #txeduchat
  137. A1 culture is the glue that holds a staff together, keeps you confident/supported. Points you in right direction. Lifts you up. #txeduchat
  138. A2: SAMR fosters innovation and thinking abt tasks differently, but I like it because it makes tech more intentional #txeduchat
  139. #txeduchat #bcedchat #caedchat As new school year approaches , I would love to provide more physical activity opportunities in ur school
  140. A2: The concept of “redefining” means changing the entire concept of what T’s have done! New and innovative, not year to year! #txeduchat
  141. @Techbradwaid A1 the college is excited about us using underwater robots but would they let me get a moderately sized pool #txeduchat
  142. A1 School culture either hinders or supports innovation. Your school culture invites voice or blocks it. That affects growth #txeduchat
  143. A1a) I do have to say the culture of the chats I've been involved in, in the last year have inspired me to be better. Even at 54! #txeduchat
  144. A2: As an edtech coordinator, I'd be thrilled for some Ts to just try the S in SAMR. That would be innovative for where they are #txeduchat
  145. A1) Absolutely! Innovators will innovate regardless of the school culture but it's a lot easier & productive when there's support #txeduchat
  146. A2: it is a wonderful tool for Ts to self-reflect with & make goals to move to higher levels. Gives us common lang. #txeduchat
  147. A2; The structure can help with building confidence and setting/achieving goals in stages.#txeduchat
  148. A1: a poor school culture will have people doing just what they are asked to do and nothing more or less #txeduchat
  149. @MrHowardFMS hey! Welcome! I'm Shaina from Texas. Just walked in from a 16hr #roadtrip from FL! made it for #txeduchat just in time!
  150. #txeduchat How do we foster a genuine culture of risk taking in schools?
  151. @MelissaBalcom Yep. It's possible to swim upstream, but it's exhausting work for little progress. #txeduchat
  152. A2: Never seen SAMR model, but it gives a start. We use Blooms and its levels, why not the same with tech? #txeduchat
  153. A2) Teachers can be more reflective of how they and students are using technology allowing student creativity to lead the way. #txeduchat
  154. A2: The SAMR model, like others, can encourage intentionality in using tech; Being intentional is important to any good teaching. #txeduchat
  155. A2. Using tech more purposefully will have a more significant impact. Ts need to reflect on why the use it and if it transforms #txeduchat
  156. A2: Not always. Because Ts that have always taught with a worksheet don't understand how to redefine a worksheet (no offense) #txeduchat
  157. Q2: Technology integration should be used as an #aid in the classroom and a tool for #learning. #txeduchat
  158. A2: I think this is most important for Ts reluctant to tech.Its not just a sub for pen/paper, it is a creation process. #txeduchat
  159. A2 The SAMR model is NOT the magic key to innovation. People STILL interpret it as being more app focused & that's not great #txeduchat
  160. @NKeithBlend And once they get a taste, no telling where they will climb! We say that @nearpod is a gateway drug for our Ts! #txeduchat
  161. @Tom_Kilgore Absolutely! A toxic culture mired in fear, negativity, & close-mindedness is soul-crushing...for Ts as well as Ss #txeduchat
  162. Hi #txeduchat Barbara from FISD; check out the shirts @jenmccray97  & I are going to wear in our TweetChat workshop. http://t.co/zLswn5cgyL
    Hi #txeduchat Barbara from FISD; check out the shirts @jenmccray97 & I are going to wear in our TweetChat workshop. pic.twitter.com/zLswn5cgyL
  163. A1: culture is EVERYTHING! Leadership who gives you space to try and fail are priceless. Support from admin makes or breaks innov #txeduchat
  164. @RafranzDavis Wish I could favorite this several more times! Sums it up perfectly! #txeduchat Culture="make or break" for innovation IMHO
  165. A2: The SAMR model allows Ts to see it is a process and that they are not expected to be an expert over night. #txeduchat
  166. A2: Our time with tech is so limited by the amount of hardware on our campus that Ts have to keep the SAMR model in mind - #txeduchat
  167. Love the way you put this: "invites or blocks your voice." Great to share with Ss in class culture, too. #txeduchat  https://twitter.com/RafranzDavis/status/628011061703258113 
  168. A2: SMAR allows teachers to take baby steps toward integration & feel successful #scaffolding #txeduchat
  169. A2b: I ask them to think of ways to Curate, Connect, Create, & Consume w/tech. That way they don't think of current lesson #txeduchat
  170. A1: Absolutely it does! The school must set the tone for #innovation so that the #educators within will be open to it #txeduchat
  171. .@RafranzDavis Great point. How can leaders set the stage for innovation? How can SAMR help teachers innovate? #txeduchat
  172. A2: the visual provides Ts a constant reminder of where they are in their practice and I turn can help with development of goals #txeduchat
  173. @teachinsciatcms These chats have been great and fun! We love engaging in the knowledge exchange #innovation #sharing #txeduchat
  174. Q2: Ts long to do lists make it easy to just throw in tech tools as a hook- Ts must use tech as meaningful and purposeful tools #txeduchat
  175. @Owl_b_TorresEdu I said pretty much the same thing! Mindlessness is too prevalent when standards & curriculum are pre-determined. #txeduchat
  176. A2) Teachers can understand that they're not just using tech for the sake of using tech but being mindful of its use. #txeduchat
  177. @JessicaBulva T’s need to reflect on how it transforms S’s learning! We don’t use it to “use it” Purpose driven implementation #txeduchat
  178. A2: SAMR, much like Blooms or Costas levels of thinking gives teachers a road map to scaffold their trip! #GetInTheCar&Drive #txeduchat
  179. A2:Helps Ts intentionally, strategically plan instruction (utilizing technology) that's "above the line". @lainierowell #Txeduchat
  180. @Drmitzner A1: there's some level of failure involved in taking risks which creates successes. (If that makes sense) #txeduchat
  181. A2: SAMR model helps educators use technology to drive meaningful investigation into important questions #txeduchat http://t.co/vZKQos7aDo
    A2: SAMR model helps educators use technology to drive meaningful investigation into important questions #txeduchat pic.twitter.com/vZKQos7aDo
  182. A2. SAMR puts tech in its place as a tool because it is all about the learning! #txeduchat
  183. A2:I think it's a huge eye opener for Ts.So many think ed tech is simply substitution.That's not even close.Ts need to know #SAMR #txeduchat
  184. @craigyen This is so true. Integration should be for a reason. Tech isn't just a frame around your typical instruction. #txeduchat
  185. @AliciafBates Absolutely! I also see it more as dynamic instead of a ladder. Everything cannot be redefined all at once! #txeduchat
  186. Embracing SAMR means that Ts ensure that students work with tech & create products that would have been inconceivable otherwise #txeduchat
  187. A2-The SAMR model provides a view of where u r and where u can go to move forward. Must have clear pic of both to innovate #txeduchat
  188. Sorry late - A2: Innovation with tech comes when we move past trying to teach tech and rather utilize it to it's vast potential #txeduchat
  189. A2:The goal is to transform learning for Ss so it results in higher achievement! It gives Ts a sense of purpose for tech tools! #txeduchat
  190. @SVicGlass @Drmitzner Great point! #txeduchat But failure initially means we're trying new adventures in the classroom and beyond.
  191. @txeduchat We have to empower kids through effective questioning & work that matters, not just apps. Not just SAMR #txeduchat
  192. @Techbradwaid #txeduchat hi from Pgh, A2 set structure, provide support for the start, needed to lead toward innovation
  193. A2 The SAMR model was a reality ck for me a year ago. It helped me redefine my tech use & establish clear goals. #txeduchat
  194. A2 Iindvid Ts could be at dif places on the chart. It would take a while before all teachers were at the top. Like years. #txeduchat
  195. A2: the key is when we use technology to create new learning and that innovation TRANSFORMS learning #txeduchat  https://twitter.com/techbradwaid/status/628010488794849280 
  196. A climate of caring, where everyone feels nourished and loved = crucial to true school success! #txeduchat http://t.co/aCtb3uiVv6
    A climate of caring, where everyone feels nourished and loved = crucial to true school success! #txeduchat pic.twitter.com/aCtb3uiVv6
  197. A2: Always had/have a hard time explaining SAMR to teachers. Read #ditchbook by @jmattmiller and his example made sense #txeduchat
  198. @RafranzDavis You always hit the nail on the head. Growth comes from challenging students! #txeduchat
  199. Q3 - How would you help someone move from substitution to augmentation using SAMR #txeduchat
  200. A2: for me, the SAMR model is like learning to swim in the deep end...you sometimes have to take off your water wings! #txeduchat
  201. #txeduchat I also think it is important for students to use tech to solve real world problems.
  202. A2: You can use the idea of SAMR beyond tech. Just think of your lesson: subbing in old stuff or truly redefining learning... #txeduchat
  203. A2: the key is to remember SAMR is NOT a hierarchy, ladder, or continuum; its fluid #txeduchat
  204. @JChanter22 Yes, and in turn it serves no greater purpose nor does it aid in learning! #txeduchat
  205. I view the SAMR model through the same lens as Webb's Depth of Knowledge. I try to build to redefinition. #txeduchat
  206. SAMR helps Ts think about about learning outcomes and how technology will drive that learning instead of tech for tech sake.#txeduchat.
  207. @romenendez14 I agree. Allowed me to dig deeper & think about integration not just utilization! #txeduchat
  208. We know #txeduchat is moving fast tonight. JUMP Into the conversation & have fun! Archive will be available on  http://txeduchat.com 
  209. A2: Ss need more time to play with and try tech to create in order to figure things out - not every kid has access at home #txeduchat
  210. This tends to happen! SAMR keeps T’s in check… like asking deeper questioning! Accountability! #txeduchat  https://twitter.com/romenendez14/status/628012100422647808 
  211. @Fearless_Teach #txeduchat so important for those afraid to take risks, need support or small steps in place to build
  212. .@RafranzDavis Always value your thoughts. How can leaders help educators innovate? #txeduchat
  213. A3: This is what I do all year long. I work w/reluctant adopters. You have to pick 1 task or app and focus on that. #txeduchat
  214. @KirvenTillis #txeduchat Great point, digital just another means to the ultimate end of raising tstudent learning, futures.
  215. @Edtechnerd thanks for sharing! Great visual while participating in this #txeduchat tonight!
  216. A2 Looking @What Modification&Redefinition consists of challenges me 2 really think beyond the use of apps or presentation tools. #txeduchat
  217. I agree, Amy! A clear path to help drive instruction & facilitate learning! #txeduchat Helps to see the whole pic!  https://twitter.com/AmyHeavin/status/628011928456003585 
  218. EEK! Just remembered I've got homework- thanks @Techbradwaid and #txeduchat - i'll catch you next week!
  219. Man, I'm glad we're having this chat. Have a 4 day training for our 1:1 Ts this week, and SAMR is huge component. #txeduchat
  220. @jen___williams And there are technologies out there that can help with #reflections and data collections for #teachers. #txeduchat
  221. A2: SAMR can allow Ts to get started w/ tech integration for those who have a fear or don't know where to start #txeduchat
  222. @Techbradwaid Try small projects with your Ss - the excitement spreads and it becomes possible for other Ts #txeduchat
  223. @R_H_Steele Exactly. It's not the tool. It's how it is used to build skills, collaborate, create. Pedagogy over tool. #txeduchat
  224. A3 I'm not sure the point is "moving from substitution to augmentation." Shouldn't it b which tool is going to increase learning? #txeduchat
  225. A2: Tech should be used as a way to make learning more meaningful. If only using it for the sake of using it, pointless. #txeduchat
  226. A3: by providing examples and modeling. Provide Ts with Pd that models for them and not just shows them an "app" #txeduchat
  227. A2: the "R" in the SAMR model allows for Ss to innovate and globally connect beyond the Ss expectations. #txeduchat
  228. Tech doesn't fit in everything but I keep my SAMR in mind as I plan my lessons. I keep my TEKS & SAMR handouts on top of plans. #txeduchat
  229. A2: don't overestimate the power of Ss; let them decide the 'how' & 'why! & 'what' #txeduchat
  230. @raspberryberet3 #txeduchat Completely agree, Ts can simultaneously be learner/novice and leader expert in different contexts.
  231. @awakenlibrarian Yea! Now I look @ it in terms of tools for inquiry and demonstration of knowledge. #txeduchat
  232. A2) It's a big step from SA (Enhancement) to MR (Transformation). T's support, training, and time to get there. #txeduchat
  233. #txeduchat A2 SAMR model can also lead to more authentic use of technology for more rigorous and differentiated lessons.
  234. A3) Offer to help them look at a lesson that they are planning to move them to the augmentation stage. i.e. use a Gform #txeduchat
  235. Tech is not the only way to have innovation in the classroom. We agree that it takes pedagogical change. #txeduchat
  236. .@Techbradwaid @craigyen A3 @Graphite is a great website to look at for apps and sites that help move to augmentation #txeduchat
  237. @NKeithBlend #txeduchat Good point. Not everything needs to redefined or even involve tech use, must be relevant use in play.
  238. A3: My thought is, “What is best for Student learning.” You can hit all levels of SAMR and be successful. Use what works 4the S! #txeduchat
  239. #txeduchat A2 Not being a teacher, can't talk directly to SAMR.. But after 6 years in U.S. Navy (might have been a Clint Eastwood movie)..+
  240. #txeduchat A3 By sitting down w/ Ts and learn what they are trying to accomplish and help them make a small adjustment to be augmenting
  241. @stuartkellynz @raspberryberet3 TPACK model is a good way to think about it. Tech, pedagogy and content. Strong in some, not all #txeduchat
  242. @NancyWTech Yes for sure, but we want to make sure we are not doing digital worksheets and calling it better learning :) #txeduchat
  243. A3: Similar to: How do we get Ts to move from lecture to #PBL? By showing how great teaching is when you have Ss engagement #txeduchat
  244. @gwschattle281 That is so not true!!! YOu cannot plan curiosity and we have to learn to facilitate this!! #txeduchat
  245. A3. Innovative practices occur when all are encouraged to dabble in small steps #txeduchat
  246. A3 need to work with Ts to show how technology can be an essential. Take a typical lesson and show where tech can be integrated #txeduchat
  247. A3: I might me a smart alec, but wouldnt a PD hands on training be perfect for this step? #txeduchat
  248. A3: collaboration is key. Bring in Ts from other subjects/classes to create smthing together to model how to bring it to Ss #txeduchat
  249. @Techbradwaid Give the time, resources and freedom to fail, reapply, succeed, point out that progress can be non-linear. #txeduchat
  250. A3: Subt to Augmen is one of the most important steps. It needs 2 create strong foundation, upon which to build the Mod and Redif #txeduchat
  251. Q3:the best way is for teachers to walk into each other's classrooms and see the transformation in their subject area. #txeduchat
  252. @gwschattle281 Truthfully, most chats are pre-planned & the questions mostly suck! My best have been on the fly conversations! #txeduchat
  253. #txeduchat A2 Improvise, overcome, adapt. Technology is leverage. What it does is give you options and reach.
  254. @joshua_shepard Yes! It's okay to go back and forth between the levels...one is not better than the other...just try them all #txeduchat
  255. @txeduchat @urbie This may be the best thing I have ever seen on Twitter! LOVE THIS! #txeduchat @Periscope Innovation at its best! :)
  256. A3: To me, moving from R to A is an understanding of available tools and finding the best one. Model, share, offer to help #txeduchat
  257. @MrHowardFMS Maybe not even integrated, but how technology can enhance S learning! Look at individualization! #txeduchat
  258. @stuartkellynz Yes! Want the Ts I work with to always know it's OKAY if the tech is way when I come in. What are Ss learning? #txeduchat
  259. A3: depends on Ts; model, brainstorm, work together, design exemplars; need time! #txeduchat
  260. A3: Helping someone move from substitution to augmentation in SAMR takes a lot of conversation & learning alongside each other. #txeduchat
  261. @stuartkellynz #txeduchat It is challenging to get faculty onboard and to try something new!
  262. A3 Also, for noobs, don't throw all tech at them at once. Try something small and make it work for them. Let them explore from it #txeduchat
  263. @txeduchat And teachers must be willing to embrace that there are many ways to be #innovation #txeduchat
  264. A3: Colleague invited me to collaborate with her to create tech learning experience with her. Invite others to try it with you! #txeduchat
  265. A2 Questions & reflection achieved in many ways. #txeduchat Innovation not limited to tech, but can include tech.
  266. A3 Start w/presentation tech& accompany it with a rubric that requires Ss to dig deeper & represent in many ways their knowledge. #txeduchat
  267. Absolutely! If it's manageable, it's more likely to become something we do, not just a thing we tried. #txeduchat  https://twitter.com/Drmitzner/status/628013258859872256 
  268. @MrHowardFMS small steps taken over time add up to huge gains for students! #txeduchat
  269. @MelissaBalcom #txeduchat Well put Melissa, we will always have turtles, middle-roaders and road-runners in schools, just can't behind Ts.
  270. @joshua_shepard Absolutely. Many things can be done better with tech. But experienced Ts must show what this looks like #txeduchat
  271. A3: Be in the room to support the T trying to move from S to A. Be available to give feedback and support. #txeduchat
  272. A3) 1st you need to provide experience with different tech tools. 2nd have them create by hacking those tools #txeduchat
  273. @txeduchat Happens all the time (not in my district, happily). No thinking involved. It's not exactly great for anyone. #txeduchat
