I get to see less and less each week, I think because I get busier with individual teachers. a special thank you to Mrs. Kallieras for inviting me to teach a couple of fun lessons on Scratch.
Kids teach each other
It doesn't matter whether I’m in a high school classroom or middle school, or even elementary school. Kids are always leaning over and helping each other quietly.
I spent some one on one time with an English teacher and we discussed some google add-ons, apps, extensions that might be useful in her classroom

I also spent some time talking about Google Classroom and HaikuLearning. Some topics I think I will be spending a lot more time on in the coming weeks. As more technology enters the classroom and teachers find more innovative ways of using that technology we need the tools that support us.
Google Classroom is great for assigning and collecting work, but is kind of limited after that.
HaikuLearning, is a true learning management system. It allows us to transform our classrooms in ways that allows teachers to differentiate, extend, and re-mediate as needed.
Nothing of course is a single silver bullet to fix everything, but knowing what the tools are and what they can do is the first step.
