#Oklaed – This One is for You!!

You always do what Uncle Sam says to do.

You always do what Uncle Sam says to do.

One of the best things about the beginning of my week is the #oklaed chat Sunday at 8:00 CST.  I can’t tell you how much energy this chat gives me.  The ideas, the passion, the issues, the suggestions, the conversation – it often keeps me up well past my usual bedtime!  I’m frequently still chatting with folks well into the 9 o’clock hour – the conversations are just the good.

The chat conversation is robust, yet fast, and has lead to a sister chat: #oklaedsc – a slow chat, just for us!  One question per day, each day of the week, which gives us time to really chat it up about those things we we’re burning through on Sunday.  Think about how #amazeballs this would be – to continue the passion, the excitement, the learning, the conversation.

Add the #oklaedsc stream to your Twitter chat manager (Hootsuite, TweetDeck…) and keep up the super great things that you do!

#Oklaed on Sunday evening has empowered me in ways that I never imagined.  It would definitely be one of the reasons that I am doing what I am doing now – you guys are so darn inspiring!!  Keep it up, #Oklaed!!


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
