"@Abena:  This rubric (particularly the scales of "unemployed" to "boss") is great! Thanks for sharing!  "

Vicki Davis commented on Xavier Espejo-Vadillo's blog post Planning Handshake with Sue, Abena and Helen.
"Sometimes we have students check off how many that they are are commenting upon to keep up with it and encourage contributions and communications. Focus on habits and it will help create groups and strong connections - the handshake is a great place…"

"I see someone has edited. Great! I've set it to 'comment only' now to prevent people stumbling across it and editing further."

"Nice job Xavier and Abena.  I LIKE IT!   Me gusto mucho!    Sorry, kid and family things this weekend so just now looking at your replies.  I think it might be fun to use a different tool that I haven't used before.…"

Abena Bailey commented on Xavier Espejo-Vadillo's blog post Planning Handshake with Sue, Abena and Helen.
"Absolutely. And I've just learned something new so thanks for the CARLA link. Rubric - I've made a copy and added an extra column here. It's editable for anyone with the link. I'm presuming there's no problem with us…"

Xavier Espejo-Vadillo commented on Xavier Espejo-Vadillo's blog post Planning Handshake with Sue, Abena and Helen.
"Find the reasoning behind being in favor of even number rubrics at the CARLA website. We could easily add a column and descriptions to Abena's rubric... perhaps as a Google Doc we can all edit?"

Xavier Espejo-Vadillo commented on Xavier Espejo-Vadillo's blog post Planning Handshake with Sue, Abena and Helen.
"Abena, I love the rubric and the descriptions in each category! My only concern is that I have always heard that 3 point analytical rubrics are not advisable but rather 4 point rubrics. What do you guys think? does it matter? This (rubric) would be…"

Abena Bailey commented on Xavier Espejo-Vadillo's blog post Planning Handshake with Sue, Abena and Helen.
"I really like the idea of having some kind of rubric for the handshake rather than dictating the media (although one of the requirements would have to be 'accessible by partner schools'. I created this rubric for the beginning of the…"

Xavier Espejo-Vadillo commented on Helen McConaghy's blog post What's the big deal about a handshake?
"I like your comments about organization and knowing who has joined or not the ning/edmodo. This is true! The handshake, as you say gives you a clearer picture of the eskills students have and how you can approach the project work too in terms of Web…"

"I was looking for some video messaging tools for a possible handshake with perhaps older kids and I found this Web 2.0 tool that is free http://videostir.com/ It sounds fun too. Perhaps not for this project but for anyone to use later on. Helen and…"

Abena Bailey commented on Xavier Espejo-Vadillo's blog post Planning Handshake with Sue, Abena and Helen.
"Am I right in thinking that we are all leaning toward Glogs and/or Vokis as our preferred method? How can we write a final blog post for the assignment?"

""Talking to Helen" on Blackboard after today's meeting we thought we could also consider Voicethread to do our handshake as we could present some slides about us and then each could comment via voice or text to each other."

Planning Handshake with Sue, Abena and Helen.

What level should we choose?

What is a handshake and why is it important?
