|Peter Vogel||39,662||ICT / Ed Tech CircleIt's a long weekend here in Canada (we celebrate Thanksgiving well ahead of our neighbours to the south). Here is a circle of people with a passion for technology in education and who have shared that enthusiasm here on Google+. And that makes for an ideal group to share their energy with others perhaps just starting to explore the rich environment of G+.

|Bill Campbell||972||Google Plus circle for #edcampnyc 2012I continue to like using Google+ as my way to share thoughts, collect information, and engage with others and find it fits nicely between the brevity of twitter, which is often too short unless you link to something else, and blogging, which seems a little more formal.(I've written more about that at https://plus.google.com/u/1/114890399006791846298/posts/RFnhKgLxStd)Anyway, because of this I continue to try to expand my Google+ community in an attempt to get it be as robust as my Twitter community. For Twitter, I've found creating lists of conference attendees a good way to do this so I'm attempting to do the same as a Google+ circle for #edcampnyc 2012 convening at Francis Lewis High School (http://edcampnyc.org)Therefore, this is the start of my EdCampNYC 2012 attendees circle. This contains the organizers I could find on Google+. I will add more attendees by searching the hastag on Twitter (as there is little use of the tag on Google+ at the moment.) Unfortunately, shared circles don't currently auto-update so after I expand the circle, I will share it out again and link to it from this post.(Note to +Vic Gundotra and the +Google+ team: Shared circles that could be easily updated would be a great feature for this purpose.)If you are attending edCampNYC 2012, please add a comment to this post, and I'll add you to my edCampNYC circle (then share it again later).

|Peter Vogel||39,662||Tech Ed CircleI am sharing the circle below for those who are looking for educators and those who actively write about education with an emphasis on information and communications technologies (let's call it tech ed for short). Just prior to posting this I used the Uncircle+ Chrome extension to comb the circle for inactive G+ accounts, resulting in the removal of around 60 from an initial set of 470. However, it appears that Uncircle+ is not completely reliable. At least one account remains that is apparently non-existent and a few accounts remain that were inactive during the period I specified. I wanted Uncircle+ to identify accounts with no activity since January 1.||2012-04-09 01:23:42||405||6||3||13||CC G+|

What these students are complaining about is not really the teacher, but the curriculum and the style of teaching mandated by the school or district.
Everyone learns all the time, but in a haphazard way. Students often don't realize how they developed the intellectual tools they need to learn efficiently on their own. I'm as anti-curriculum as anyone, but EVERYONE, students, adult-learners, EVERYONE needs guides, interlocutors, people who will challenge their assumptions and conclusions, and others. Real learning is never a solitary pursuit, and can't be done in the middle of the tsunami of potential links Google and other search engines throw at one.

These are all good suggestions, but they barely touch on the main causes of teacher dropout: lack of support from administration and too much micro-managing. The latter can be rephrased as lack of recognition of one's professionalism and abilities.
Teachers, like most people, want to have a say in their working environment and recognition that they have the intelligence and experience to contribute ideas and suggestions that the administration (district as well as school) need to pay attention to. This does not mean that all teacher suggestions need to be implemented, but that their suggestions get a fair and considered hearing.

Thanks for the invite, Lynn. I'm Deven Black,@devenkblack on Twitter. I am a middle school librarian in NYC who is trying to bring a tech-lacking school into the 21st (or in some cases, late 20th) Century. I am constantly learning and always looking to share what I learn (except everyone else seems to know it first).

I had the privilege to be taught by Gatto early in his career. I think it is time for a national teacher's strike. One day -- preferably the day some major test is given -- and maybe then we can get a seat at the policy table.
