The #OKEDrally View From My Tweets!

#OKEDrally

Yep – that is where I was during the #OKEDrally on March 31!

Monday March 31st was amazing, the strength of the voices from all different aspects of education, from students, to parents, to teachers, to legislators was amazing.  I cannot adequately put into words how great it was to hear from all who had the opportunity to share.  So here is the rally in tweet form, all tweets are paraphrases of what the speakers were sharing.  Any bad quoting by me was totally accidental and not my intention to misrepresent what they were saying.  There were a couple of difficulties – Twitter got stuck a couple of times and some posts did not get out until later…My intention was to post this last Tuesday – but teaching and coaching duties got in the way and there was a slight delay…

About Scott

My name is Scott. After 18.5 years as a high school math teacher in public education I have made the move to become a full time PhD student. This decisions was difficult, but has been one of the most rewarding things that I have ever done. Teaching in high school was an incredible experience for me, so leaving an environment that I loved for the unknown was a challenge. As I high school teacher, I taught almost every math course that could be offered. I was able to earn National Board Certification in Young Adult Math. I was honored as my building Teacher of the Year, no mean feat at Edmond Memorial High School!! My career changed as I became fascinated with educational technology and all of the things that it can do for teachers. I flipped my class. I used iPads and blogging (in high school math!!). I started using gamification and mastery learning. I changed my practice. I chose to go back to school to learn as much as I could. To bring that knowledge from academia and research to the teacher on the front line. I have had the opportunity to present at several conferences and share what I have learned with others. Its through these connections that we can be the best teachers we can for our students. They deserve it and we sell ourselves short when we don't give it. I love talking with teachers about change. About incorporating educational technology. About the power that they have to change lives. My blog space is me, it shares my passions and frustrations, my joys and my learnings. If you are interested in what I am studying, please visit my graduate school pages. If you are interested in the flipped classroom, I have some links to get your started. I would love to meet you! Do not hesitate to reach out! I would enjoy the opportunity to work with your staff or trade ideas with your teachers - let me know! Have a great day! #BeBrilliant
