Hi Kendall,

I just made sure to follow you from my twitter account and edutopia's twitter account. The conversation did have a hashtag - It was #techedheads - it's a weekly chat. Here's a link to the main twitter account to follow for times: https://twitter.com/techedheads/status/448455470538563584.

And here's a link to the specific conversation: https://twitter.com/CCSDPL/status/448609932506849280.

Hope this helps and see you on Twitter!

Came across a conversation on Twitter about this blog and one teacher added that most of the suggestions in this blog can easily be "techified" using padlet, edmodo, educreations, and other edtech apps.

Thought it was good example of how to integrate tech thoughtfully into these activities.

Thanks for this terrific

Thanks for this terrific piece - I resonate with everything here. The inquiry-based learning experience you discuss opens the door for students to turn static information into opportunities for real collaboration and the development of a personal creative practice & point of view. Your ideas bring storytelling and design thinking into the core framework of any activity. It's as if we utilized these principles in the development of mapyourworld.org - an interactive data/storytelling site for young people to engage with technology and storytelling for social good. We just received a MacArthur grant which will enable us to fully launch the platform soon - and I intend to quote from your article heavily in our next round of grant proposals! Thanks again.
