Reflections on Prisons, Schools, Poverty and Families in Oklahoma
Posted: December 2013

This Christmas Eve 2013 audio podcast is a recorded conversation with Shelly and Wesley Fryer, reflecting on their recent experiences on December 9th with the "Redeeming the Family" outreach ministry at Mable Bassett Women's Prison in McCloud, Oklahoma. Redeeming the Family is an organization serving the innocent children of incarcerated parents in Oklahoma through the Oklahoma Messages Project. The Oklahoma Messages Project provides opportunities for mothers and fathers in prison to choose a free book for their child/children and read the book (or an excerpt) for them as part of a DVD message. These DVDs are delivered to the child/children's caregivers before holidays like Christmas, Mother's Day and Father's Day. Research shows that increased communication between incarcerated parents and their children can reduce the chances those children will become incarcerated themselves. Redeeming the Family (redeemingthefamily.org) provides opportunities for volunteers to serve in the Oklahoma Messages Project multiple times each year at different Oklahoma prisons around the state.

This session will detail the planning process for our current implementation of a 1:1 Chromebook environment, tips for success, and lessons learned.” Although this description mentions Chromebooks specifically, Jake addresses planning issues for 1:1 projects applicable to all platforms and devices.

All My Lesson Plans are in Google Docs! (An Interview with Shelly Fryer)
Posted: September 2013

This podcast is a 17 minute interview with Shelly Fryer, who is teaching third, fourth, and fifth grade students in a self-contained classroom this year in Oklahoma City. Shelly has been out of the classroom for over a decade, and in returning has committed to teaching as a twenty-first century educator. One of her top priorities was to find a way to digitally create and share her lesson plans. In this interview she explains how she’s using Google Docs for lesson planning, how she’s directly linking to YouTube videos she’s using in lessons, how she’s utilized some paid YouTube videos for “brain breaks” with students as well as commercially sold lesson plan resources on “Teachers Pay Teachers.” She also shares some of her other newly developed technology skills including creating shorter PDF file “excerpts” of longer files, using her Smartboard for digital writing, dabbling a bit with Twitter, and using the Augmented Reality app CoLAR with students. Technology skills Shelly wants to develop in upcoming weeks include using her YouTube channel to create playlists of videos, using a classroom KidBlog site with her students for interactive writing, using a classroom Twitter account to connect her students to a wider audience for their writing, learning how to differentiate math lessons for her students using the Khan Academy “coaching” option, finding free lessons plan resources on Curriki, and introducing her students to programming and problem solving on the iPad using the free CargoBot app.

They both were participants in the Spring 2013 "Mapping Media to the Common Core" course taught by Wesley Fryer via videoconference through the University of Montana. On their handout, Jamie and Amy wrote: Sharing these [student] presentations can be very powerful because parents and others have the opportunity to see and hear the work, ideas, and creativity of the students. Parents, grandparents and others will truly appreciate being able to connect with their kiddos in this way. Find someone on your staff or in a professional learning network you can collaborate with. This professional relationship will enable you to offer deeper educational experiences for you and your students. Subscribe to blogs, use twitter and seek out opportunities to enrich your knowledge base. These global forums offer great inspiration and ideas for your classroom and school.
