AND YOU! We’d love to include you in this conversation. Just send us your Google+ account information, and we’ll invite you into the Hangout-on-Air on Wednesday, August 21.
Tim, Paul, and Leah have invited teachers who are already using Gooru with their students, and others who might be interested to join them to explore some of the tools Gooru offers teachers and students as they co-create curriculum. If you’re interested, we’d love to have you join!
We’ll brainstorm several use-case possibilities such as:
How can we use Gooru along with other tools like Crocodoc, Popcorn Maker, or Vialogues to not only collect resources, but make them interactive at the same time? (Can you help us add to this list of interactive tools?)
—What if students used Gooru to keep a portfolio of the articles they’ve read, podcasts they’ve listened to, videos they’ve viewed?
—How could teachers and students build collections together, using the copy tools in Gooru?
—How can we use resource narrations and the new Classpages to guide and inspire students as they are using different collections?
—Exploring ways in which teachers will integrate tech into their curriculum this school year
Please join us for this conversation between teachers re-imagining online education using Gooru on Wednesday, August 21 at 6PM ET/3PM PT on Teachers Teaching Teachers, a webcast you can tune into and join the chat at http://edtechtalk.com/ttt

+Michelle Rogge Gannon and I would like to invite you to join us on Teachers Teaching Teachers teachersteachingteachers.org this Wednesday, July 31 at 9PM ET/6PM PT. We will be meeting in a Hangout-on-Air, which will be broadcast at edtechtalk.com/ttt
A couple of weeks ago, Michelle wrote:
Some of the teachers in the Dakota Writing Project Digital Writing Sandbox are asking for resources on scaffolding the blogging process and on evaluating blog entries. I wondered if you might have some resources that you would be willing to share or if you could point to some that might be useful.
"Scaffolding the blogging process and evaluating blog entries" sounded like a great discussion to for our webcast, Teachers Teaching Teachers.
In addition to these questions, we will also learn anything we can about what teachers been learning together in the Dakota Writing Project Sandbox this summer.
This should be fun.
Taking a 21st-century approach, the Dakota Writing Project Digital Writing Marathon provides educators with a thoughtful, intensive, collaborative exploration of a variety of technology environments and strategies for integrating writing and adapting these technologies appropriately for the classroom. The marathon is offered entirely online, with both synchronous (real-time) and asynchronous communication and activities, with the majority of online work occurring in July 2013, January 2014, and May 2014. The marathon is taught by Dakota Writing Project teacher-consultants with extensive experience in integrating writing and technology for the classroom.

It’s a planning-in-public episode on Teachers Teaching Teachers.
This week along with my colleagues in the New York City Writing Project, +Grace Raffaele +Jim Nordlinger +Noah Gordon Aliyah Hayes, we’ve been individually meeting 15 high school students who will be joined by five teachers for a three-week summer program focused on http://youthvoices.net/grid and http://youthvoices.net/play
What an exciting group of youths we’ve been lucky enough to gather for this program! And thank you to all of our supporters who contributed to make this possible!
On this week’s TTT, +Jim Nordlinger our video production lead and +Karen Fasimpaur (who will be joining us in the third week) and I will be extending conversations we’ve been having about the story we want to tell with a video that Jim has been shooting about the deep learning students and teachers do together on Youth Voices.
From the intake interviews this week (and even before in a teacher’s classroom) to the final exhibition on July 25th Jim has been pointing his camera at our interactions. On TTT we’ll be talking about what story we want to tell with this video project.
We would love for you to join us to add any insights you might have about what audience we should be aiming to connect with (the average citizen?) and what message we want to convey about the way teachers and students can work together in an online learning space built on National Writing Project values and beliefs.
Join us as we make transparent our planning process. We would love to have you challenge us and support us, to make us re-think and to be inspired as we begin this adventure together on Monday, July 8.
