"Thanks Catalina. It is a loooong hashtag right? I'm a fairly latecomer to Twitter so hopefully I can be more concise with my tags in future. For us, the language awareness part is essential given the range of nationalities and languages we have…"

"I really like your proposal. May be we all need to implement a kind of language awareness project as OhMyEnglish to be reduce potential frictions.  In terms of your design I like the fact that you take your readership step by step. It feels…"

Abena Bailey commented on Susan Adams's blog post The Blood, Sweat, and Eureka of Collaboraton
"This idea of protecting one's own achievement is something I witnessed very recently with some Y8/G7 learners. When we started as a class in September on a collaborative project, their learning blogs were filled with comments that indicated…"

"Sometimes it just takes little steps to reach the end goal. At least your school is moving in the right direction and that is something to be thankful for at least. I hope it isn't too far in the future where such decision are in the hands of…"

"While I'm writing you elsewhere :)  I want to comment on your "Oh My English" video. What a brilliant concept!  The video is very cute and I love the way it will get kids thinking."

Susan Adams commented on Abena Bailey's blog post FCC9_Assess
"That is such an incredible philosophy!!  I think a lot of our building administrators would agree with that, but there are others that don't.  The philosophy is that a "filter" doesn't control blogs well - where anyone…"

"Hi Susan, We have virtually unlimited Internet access as we are a one-to-one school and our professional judgement as teachers is trusted. Also we believe that, as the learners have unrestricted access outside of school, it is more useful to teach…"

"Hi Abena, Trello looks like a great organizer.  Do you have strong filters in your school?  We aren't allowed to use sites that have open blogs.  Are these limited to students?"

In implementing the Apprentice project, I was more concerned with the final outcomes in a holistic sense and knew that I would be able to incorporate development on our Assessment Focuses (AFs) along the way.

My learners are currently working on a collaborative project of their design where they create a study guide for the novel Never Let Me Go. The aim of creating this is that they will have a custom-made, personalised revision tool for their literature examination, which focuses purely on what they need to complete the high-stakes exam task (GCSE).

I was reading on your profile that you hope to start some collaborative projects.  I am in a high school 9-12 grade in Colorado.  After we feel like we know what we are doing a little more, maybe we can connect some classes
