Data Talks with Students

Started by Latasha Turner. Last reply by Julie Cobb Jul 20, 2011. 3 Replies

Has any administrator out there talked data with their students? If so, how? How deep did you go and how often did you do it? The audience would be middle school, 6-8.

Using a PLN as a professional growth tool is my focus this year. Initially I am looking for ways to 'document' my learning. Everytime I get on here or twitter I come away with something new and useful. I am a little overwhelmed at this point!

HI! This is my first blog post!!! I'm so glad they have a group for the "newbies." Does anyone belong to groups that they really like? I'm going to be a secondary math teacher and would like to communicate with other math teachers to share ideas. Thanks!

Good morning.....calling all teachers, students, colleagues, etc...

I sincerely apologize if any of you are receiving this message more than once. We are trying to reach as many teachers/students as possible around the world. It's possible that you're a member of more than one of the groups I have joined. My apologies!

My name is Rossel Mulaire. I am a Canadian teacher who has been living and working in Monterrey, Mexico since 2004. For the past two years, I have been teaching 8th and 9th grade Social Studies/World History. My other responsibilities include being our school's Model United Nation's advisor and Social Studies Department Head. I have taught many different grade levels (first through tenth grades), in Canada, South Korea, and Mexico.

I recently started a little project on Twitter with my 8th and 9th graders, tweeting daily about historical facts and events, sort of like a "this day in history". We are wondering if you'd be able to give out our twitter address to students and teachers. Not only wherever you find yourselves now, but anywhere else you may have contacts. We see this as a great way to teach and appreciate history, bit by bit, one small step at a time. We are trying to use technology to reach more students, and to open dialogue with students and teachers around the world.

If you are in a position to help us, please do so by JOINING US ON TWITTER and by sending our twitter address to students and colleagues, past and present. Ask them to follow our many daily tweets. At the moment, we are tweeting about historical events and facts from around the world. We'd love to see students commenting on our tweets, and also, by adding to our project by posting historical content from their respected countries.

We are hoping to hear from teachers and students from all  parts of the world! The students are keeping a record of the various countries following us! Please help out by following us. The more people (students, teachers, family members, etc) we have following us, the more excited the students get. This excitement then becomes a motivator to continue! Help us make learning about history a little more interesting!

Our  twitter address is:

Please feel free to contact me anytime. I'd be happy to answer any questions or doubt you may have.

Social Studies Department Head and Model United Nations Advisor

This is a great website for starting a PLC, what they are, and how to use them effectively.

New to the group. I have a lot to learn. Looking forward to it.

Twitter is blocked at school but is not. Is there someway to see who uses plurk to post to twitter if we have already started a list of teachers to follow without starting over? Am new to plurk, is there an advantage to using one over the other?

Hi, I am working with a school in NJ on a 3-Year Technology Plan and am looking for suggestions of tools to use to assess teacher and administrator proficiency in use of technology. NJ has recently adopted ISTE standards. The school is not doing too much at the moment, so simpler is better. Any lead appreciated!

I think with this group in order to have a majority of people understand you it would be best to speak in English.
Comment by Samir Fatani on January 27, 2010 at 8:32pm
Hi! I think the idea of the PLN is just great. Can I use any langauge other than English?
