Hi Thomas,
Thanks so much for attending my session at FETC on using the SCAN process at www.yourtake.org AND for sharing this NING with me - it looks like a great place to share ideas and opportunities for teachers. I have been teaching middle school for 33 years and love to "get kids thinking!" I have worked with the nonprofit Tregoe Ed foundation to help get real thinking process into the classroom. There is no better place to get kids to look at different perspectives and enter into civil discourse than in the social studies classroom. I am hoping that I can present next year at NCSS, but would be glad to share how the SCAN tool on www.yourtak.org works to anyone who will listen.

Thank you Tom,

I am a history coach and professional development specialist for the Boston Public Schools. I am also on the NCSS FASSE Board of Directors. I saw that you are presenting at NERC this March, so I will see you in Sturbridge. I have been very interested in upgrading my tech expertise.

Thanks Thomas,

It was great to work with you (I am not often so glad and satisfied as that time in ASW - I am rather demanding person). I enjoy that website - many interesting topics for wide meaning social studies interested people. Very promising.

Thanks for the welcome! I'm the Humanities Coordinator for K-12 for a small school district in North Texas. I attended NCSS when it came to Houston last year, and we just enjoyed a great state conference in Dallas in October.

Hi Thomas, I am a former educator and am now the Director of K-12 SS Portfolio Management (Product Development and Product Marketing) for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. I learned about the site from a couple of board members. I think it is a great idea and a super way to let SS teachers talk about what is important to them. If you ever need anything that I can provide, please do not hestitate to ask.

Thanks, Thomas. I sent Justin a message regarding a paper he presented at CUFA last week (on the history of world history textbooks and curriculum in Boston's schools in the 19th century).

EXCELLENT conference--as usual! Greg Mortensen was POWERFUL and INSPIRING!
Great sessions! Great networking! Great location! Great weather!
The Thursday Leadership conference was insightful.
The House of Delegates was intriguing as always.
Enjoyed the NBPTS 2-hour session Sunday morning, too.

Thanks for the idea of using the Ning!!! I actually have now set up ones for my classes and can't wait to roll them out tomorrow with my kids! One question: You had mentioned that Google Ads would remove the ads from the side if it was for a school. How do you set that up?

Thanks for the welcome Thomas. I've had the privilege of meeting your colleague, Justin Reich, during one of my courses this semester. I appreciate the great, practical advice found in your "Best Ideas for Teaching with Technology" book.

Tom,

Will any of the sessions during the conference this weekend be "live" or at least allow those not able to attend a chance to peek in? Virtually is fine too.

Sorry, I left out the location for the NYS Council conference. It will be at the Rye Town Hilton in Rye Brook, NY, close to Connecticut, Massachusetts and the Hudson Valley in New York
