BetsyCain4 What will we help our students create that makes the world awesome? http://t.co/iaFP57fOMI  #4its
evelphillips Interesting article on the use of mobile technology in Jordan and how it is transforming classrooms.  #4its
BYOTNetwork Welcome to #4its Chat! What do you think are some of the attributes or hallmarks of the Transformational Classroom?
KimSims1 Can’t find the perfect BYOT app?  Make your own – check this video from BBC’s  webscape – http://t.co/yQWZq5aXW9 #4its
hobsonjill Transformational Learning is about changing the questions.  Who asks them, what kind of questions and thus how they are answered. #4ITS
BYOTNetwork How many of us #4its have been students in a transformational classroom?
_gula Transformational classrooms make learning meaningful and relevant while challenging students to think critically and collaborate. #4its
kathyadkins Empowering Students Through Empathy and Collaboration http://t.co/BQwhfPKWov  Choice-Ownership-Real World Problem Solvers #4its
BYOTNetwork @_gula What is one of the most transformational things you’ve seen this year in your middle school Angela? #4its
hobsonjill @BYOTNetwork I don’t know that it counts as a classroom but @bernajeanporter modeled transformational learning for me. #4ITS
BYOTNetwork @hobsonjill participating in #4its Chat RT: “Transformational Learning is about changing the questions!” http://t.co/dZ6ejxaMQg 
SFMSMedia Transformational = investigation/creation/real audience. student-made Civil War PSAs and glogs on the Holocaust, for example.    #4its
cwyoumans Sorry guys #4its…will be in and out of conversation.  Have a class in here.  Always amazed at edu. courses that are literacy level. BORING
techieteacherga #4its Carla had great point when coming to SFHS – BYOT itself is not Transformational – just more computers in class. @cwyoumans
BYOTNetwork RT @cwyoumans: Sorry guys #4its…will be in and out of conversation.  Have a class in here.  Always amazed at edu. courses that are lit …
_gula @LittleMillMDL Seeing science students create wikis for labs they designed & conducted then using them to compare results #4its
BYOTNetwork @techieteacherga Agree! I’ve also seen that #BYOT can help leverage transformation. #4its
CShoeITS3 @BYOTNetwork #4its  Rigor, choice, and the 4 C’s.  Teacher is a coach and facilitator – not a lecturer.
BYOTNetwork @CShoeITS3 Hey Cassie, you didn’t mention your fifth C – Choice. 🙂 #4its
hobsonjill Love it! RT @_gula: @LittleMillMDL Seeing science stu create wikis 4 labs they designed & then using them to compare results #4its
CShoeITS3 #4its BYOT can even transform the kindergarten class!  I’ve seen it many times!
_gula Suggestions for getting reluctant teachers to buy in? #4its
kathyadkins @BYOTNetwork @CShoeITS3 What about that sixth C? – Curiosity! http://t.co/Mnw5Wf7wFp  #4its
BYOTNetwork How could be take a regular teacher-directed classroom assignment and morph it into something more transformational? Examples? #4its
jlnaile 7 characteristics that can help transform any classroom or lesson http://t.co/JdLcYn0sow  #4its
techieteacherga @BYOTNetwork #4its Yep, but I think schools may fall into the trap of succumbing to this latest edubuzzword without deeper thought…
CShoeITS3 #4its  Also transformational classrooms have teachers who are ok with learning the tools alongside their students.
CShoeITS3 @_gula #4its Letting teachers take field trips to other classrooms to see it in action.
BYOTNetwork I would like to hear some new suggestions for helping reluctant teachers embrace transformational learning, too! @_gula #4its
hobsonjill Good stuff here. RT @jlnaile: 7 characteristics that can help transform any classroom or lesson http://t.co/e2VJK2XFLe  #4its #gaed
SFMSMedia It’s called s-u-p-p-o-r-t #4its
BYOTNetwork @_gula I think modeling at least 1 C (creativity, collaboration, communication, critical thinking) to show possibilities might help. #4its
ZinkEd_u @BYOTNetwork I was in a Russian school. Extreamly high rigor, not much creativity. 🙂 #4its
techieteacherga @BYOTNetwork @_gula #4its Do NOT mandate participation. If teachers feel forced, they’ll be more resistant. Hook the early adopters first…
_gula Thanks for all the ideas about helping the reluctant teachers! #4its
ZinkEd_u @BYOTNetwork I believe in power of backward design. Thchrs developped transf essons for BYOT tour. #4its http://t.co/rE9X6IiPBG 
14dawnhall @BYOTNetwork offer voluntary staff development at times convenient for teachers: lunch, planning, before school. #4its
ZinkEd_u @techieteacherga @BYOTNetwork @_gula right – invest in your eagles! Everything else is the white noise. #4its
ZinkEd_u @14dawnhall @BYOTNetwork How many volunteers do you get? #4its
14dawnhall @ZinkEd_u last time 25 #4its
ZinkEd_u @14dawnhall Wow! We never exceed 5. #4its
ZinkEd_u @hobsonjill and adding “why”, too, to make it relevant. #4its
WhitlowWolves RT @BetsyCain4: What will we help our students create that makes the world awesome? http://t.co/iaFP57fOMI  #4its
14dawnhall @ZinkEd_u provided sweet snacks during lunch periods & offered information on specific web 2.0 tools. Works well
hobsonjill @ZinkEd_u Amen to that! #4its
WhitlowWolves Transformation- when the teachers let go of control and allow students to guide their own learning and make their own choices. #4its
BYOTNetwork I think performance tasks could be changed into open-ended questions – inquiry can lead to transformation. #4its @emily_dunlap
kathyadkins Do you have an infectious spirit? I see that in #4its Continue to spread that spirit in unique ways to reach out. http://t.co/j5osg925EV 
ZinkEd_u @BYOTNetwork @emily_dunlap yes, goes back to the rigor and byot. 🙂 #4its
CShoeITS3 RT @BYOTNetwork: I think performance tasks could be changed into open-ended questions – inquiry can lead to transformation. #4its @emily …
BYOTNetwork @ZinkEd_u How was rigor defined in your Russian school? 🙂 #4its
hobsonjill @BYOTNetwork shares the 21st C Skill Assessment results (8th Gr) w P’s. How r u addressing these strands? #4ITS http://t.co/2OeXXdtSvy 
SultanOfCircuit Transformation needs the right environment. LMS’ iTeam has near complete schedule flexibility. Hugh for PBL in middle/high! #4its
emily_dunlap Teachers need to let go of control and accept that products will come in all shapes and sizes. #4its
BYOTNetwork Love it! RT @emily_dunlap: Teachers need to let go of control and accept that products will come in all shapes and sizes. #4its #byotchat
BYOTNetwork We never really talked about the physical space changes that can happen in the Transformational Classroom. #4its
hobsonjill #4its RT @kdaughtery: @hobsonjill Use Socrative to give every child in your class a voice.
kathyadkins Involve the students in designing learning spaces.  http://t.co/tTf1hcpsJE  #4its Digital Classroom -http://t.co/12YV4ljr6I #4its
ZinkEd_u @BYOTNetwork Very high expectations=you will do what you think you cannot do-no excuses.Stretch your brain, you like it or not. #4its
ZinkEd_u @hobsonjill @kdaughtery yes, but prepare your questions well so you actually make kids think, and think hard. #4its
MrBuckeye1971 I am seeing so much more writing across curriculum.  The writing is focused on performance tasks.  Great springboard for Tech. #4its
BetsyCain4 Technology is hands-on! We’ve got to transform our lessons into opportunities to create and collaborate http://t.co/MQV6VfJ0pu  #4its
BYOTNetwork Thanks for a great #4its chat today! I hope everyone has a great weekend!
kathyadkins @BYOTNetwork Thanks Tim and have an awesome weekend as well! #4its
