Daily 5 Elluminate Session

Hello Everyone,

Wow!! What an amazing morning. It was so nice to connect with people through Elluminate this morning on our chat about Daily 5. Thank you all for coming. When Sarah (@soltauhller) and I sent out the link, we were not sure what we had done. There were 10 or so participants this morning from various parts of the world. Thanks Louise for sticking around. It was late in Australia for her and she needed to work the next day. I'm so impressed and hope it was helpful to you.

This was a new experience for me, to moderate a session. I've always been someone who attended and knew a bit about Elluminate. Moderating it is a little different. I realized I don't always multitask well. I missed most of what was happening in the chat. I can't wait to re-watch it again. You were all very good participants and patient as well.

Thank you for asking such great questions, posting links and giving people ideas on how to implement it in the classroom. Sarah created a new hashtag #Daily5 for us to use on Twitter.

I'm posting some links below for the archive as well as the website, beanie babies, chime and other sites for you to look at. If you have anymore please send them to me and I will post them. If any of the links don't work let me know.

We will do another Elluminate session closer to the beginning of school if everyone has the time. I know how busy you are. Look for it on Twitter and Facebook as well as on this site.

  1. Thank you so much for hosting/moderating it! There are few things in education that I feel I could talk about for hours. This is one of those things! I hope I didn't dominate discussion too much! I love it!

  2. Thank you David. Sorry it's taken awhile to get back to you but I've been in Banff and then attending several math sessions on Problem Solving and Critical Conversations.
    I sure hope we can all connect again to continue our conversation. Time becomes very valuable at this time of the year.
    No you did not dominate the conversation.


Thank you very much for your comments.
