#PassTheScopeEDU Recap - #100DayProject - Day 079

As many of you know, I have been part of a growing educational experience called #PassTheScopeEDU each month on the 3rd Thursday. We just completed our 3rd event and it was amazing! While I'd love to say I've watched and studied each of the 30+ Periscopes by some of the best educators in the business, I haven't had the full chance due to my single-parenthood this week. So I don't think I can give you a full-on reflection of the event, but don't worry because you're in luck. Three of our amazing edu-scopers have taken the time to reflect on their experiences both in front of as well as watching the event unfold. So I thought I could pull a Marzano on y'all and just give you a recap of their recaps.

To start, Stacy Lovdahl wrote about her struggle to decide on just one Big Idea as well as focusing on Global Connections. Stacy wrote:
The topic on PasstheScopeEDU this month was One Big Idea and Global Connections. I have to confess that this topic had me stumped mostly because I’m terrible at narrowing things down to just one thing. There are so many tech tools and I want to learn all of them. There are so many things that need to be done in education. There are so many books that I want to read and every time I tune into EduMatch I add a few more to my list. And what about conferences; the list of conferences that I wish I could go to is long and expensive.
You really need to read through the rest of Stacy's great post because she not only discusses #PassTheScopeEDU, but she also brings up a couple other events that helped her finally narrow down her thoughts for her scope.

Next, we have Cynthia Day shared some of her experiences with the event and why she had to spend her day cleaning her windows.
Why did I need to wash the exterior of all my windows the morning after periscoping during #passthescopeEDU’s June episode? Why was that the first thing I did upon waking and drinking coffee? 
The answer is that I had been impulsively inspired to write all over them with dry erase markers as a way to provide visual back up to my scope. Why window? Because they were there.
Again, be sure to go back and read the rest of Cynthia's post as it has some great thoughts on the day as well as some great pictures of her windows covered in her thoughts.

And last but not least we have Brian Smith's excellent reflection on the day's events even though he wasn't able to participate as a scoper this month. Brian used his post to not only reflect on June's #PassTheScopeEDU event, but he also took some time to give a great background on the event itself. He even started piecing together a video with some of the scopers, as seen below.

Brian is also the talented artist responsible for many of the logos we've been using. Be sure to hit up Brian's post #PassTheScopeEDU reflection and maybe learn a little more about what it is all about.

Thanks to all the amazing educators who have taken time out of their busy schedules to either join us as a scoper or watch along and learn with us. If you would like to learn more about #PassTheScopeEDU, be sure to follow the Twitter account @PassTheScopeEDU or feel free to direct your questions to either me, @lars3eb or the founder, Valerie Lewis - @iamVLewis. We can't wait to see how July's event turns out, but first, we need a little rest.
