Have you embraced bootleg technology? Consider this your weekly reminder. And for those of you on Spring Break this week, this is the perfect time to explore the ever evolving world that you can access through your smart phone, tablet computer, or other hand held connected device. A number of you in the LYS Nation are now using these devices (bootleg technology) to follow Twitter. If you haven’t done so yet, we want you to join us. To let you see what you are missing, here are the Top 10 LYS Tweets from the week of March 6th, as tabulated by the accountants at Price Waterhouse. 1. To paraphrase Governor Perry (Texas): How the districts choose to deal with the crisis that I created is a local decision. 2. The only way to avoid disaster during education downsizing is to ensure the remaining staff have adequate tools, training & support. 3. Does anyone really believe that having the principal off campus 2 to 3 times a week is a good idea? Then why is it Standard Operating Procedure in most districts? 4. Tonight’s run thought: If YOU have 100 reasons why YOUR students can’t… YOU are correct. 5. Proud of Texas Educators. Teach kids, run schools, then demonstrate during their free time. 6. Parent Involvement Tip: Reserve your best parking for parents & visitors instead of for everyone on campus with a title other than teacher. 7. Today’s run thought: A plan’s complexity is directly correlated to the level of avoidance of personal accountability. 8. The problem with revamping educator evaluation: Politicians don’t know what to look for and educators only want to be responsible for the process. 9. My I-phone gives me access to the breadth of human knowledge. So why do we punish students who bring them to school? Embrace bootleg technology! 10. Report indicates text messaging may improve student performance. LYS’ers implementing the Fundamental Five aren’t surprised. Think. Work.
