Let's get innovative!!
The discussion begins with sharing ideas and experiences
using social networking in high school classrooms. The
impression many teens have about texting, Facebook, and
Twitter is that these networks are for personal use. Many
have never heard of a Ning. Incorporating these modes of
thinking and communicating into the classroom has
potential limited only by our imaginations.

Conditionalized application of teaching knowledge
The larger your repertoire of teaching styles the better your students will be accommodated and successful but it depends on how you apply that repertoire in context.

Google Apps for Education--who is doing it, what are you learning, and how is it going?

Looking to connect and share with folks (esp. districts, but also school deployments) who are setting up and running Google Apps for Education domains. How are you setting up your domain, what functions are you making available, how are you enrolling folks?
What resources and training are you offering? Finally, how is it going?
