Still catching up on holiday tweets

1. Countdown by Deborah Wiles “[Would young readers ever be able to] connect to the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962[?] And then, two planes flew into two twin towers and one flew into the Pentagon. And as the world reacted, as I reacted, it dawned on me that we are living this history together; this grief, this joy, this fear, this confusion, this beauty, this life. We beat with one heart. And that’s when I knew I could hold that heart in my hand, and tell this story.” http://editorialanonymous.blogspot.com/2010/07/countdown-conversation-with-deborah.html

20. Rethinking the Delivery of Content http://www.ryanbretag.com/blog/?p=1502 Similar to the ideas discussed here. Scroll down to the article on video conferencing https://readingpower.wordpress.com/publications/
This idea of changing delivery balance was raised at the National Education and Computer Conference, Washington DC, July, 2009. Jonathan Bergman explored how teachers can better utilize class time to work with students individually and in groups, rather than standing at the front of a class. Jonathan spoke about the idea that content delivery could be delivered at home such as by teachers providing vodcasts. Jonathan found this change improved student achievement. http://www.istevision.org/watch.php?vid=2ea776ebd60658eb58f0e16a351737293f857394
