    Hi! Rachel from the PATINS Project here! Broadcasting live from Franklin Indiana! Funniest thing a kid said to me was "I thought this was a barber shop" right after he chopped off the back of my hair! #PatinsIcam

  • jconradslp Sep 4 @ 8:33 PM EDT
    Hi, Jessica, PATINS Specialist, I had a S tell me that he "knew I was a speech teacher because I smelled like Candyland." #YesIDo #PatinsIcam
  • RachelH872 Sep 4 @ 8:33 PM EDT
    Oh so thick and luxurious! #PatinsIcam

    Hey there, everyone! Bev Sharritt, specialist for Blind/Low Vision. My favorite September seating is my porch swing #PatinsIcam

    Julie Kuhn PATINS Specialist for Orthopedic Access to the curriculum and AAC Device Access. A student responded when a co-worker showed him a stern face and said, this is not a happy face. He smiled and said, "THIS is a happy face". #PatinsIcam

    We will post questions as Q1, Q2, etc. Pls tweet your response with A1, A2, etc. Don't forget to add the hashtag to each tweet! #PatinsIcam
  • danielgmcnulty Sep 4 @ 8:34 PM EDT
    Funniest thing a S said to me was probably sniffing me from across the room to tell me I smell like blueberry muffins #PatinsIcam
  • PATINSSandi Sep 4 @ 8:34 PM EDT
    I'm surprised he could get those rounded scissors to cut it! Oh so thick and luxurious! #PatinsIcam

      Funniest thing a S said to me was probably sniffing me from across the room to tell me I smell like blueberry muffins #PatinsIcam
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:35 PM EDT
    First question... #PatinsIcam
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:35 PM EDT
    Q1: Why is it important for Ts to consider seating in the UDL classroom? How do Ss benefit? #PatinsIcam
  • BevSharritt Sep 4 @ 8:35 PM EDT
    funniest thing (also wisest?) Mrs. Sharritt, sometimes you have to get through Monday to get to Tuesday. #PatinsIcam #dayafterlaborday
  • SheilaHobbs_RCS Sep 4 @ 8:36 PM EDT
    Sheila Hobbs, Richmond Community Schools. I have lots of crazy things kids said... I worked in Alt Ed, thereforee I can't put it on Social Media. #PatinsIcam
  • jconradslp Sep 4 @ 8:36 PM EDT
    I think I need to really reconsider the olfactory skills of children #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @danielgmcnulty
  • JulieHKuhn Sep 4 @ 8:36 PM EDT
    A1: Not everyone can learn or produce their best by sitting straight up in rigid chairs. #PatinsIcam
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:37 PM EDT
    ha ha What an opening! Welcome @SheilaHobbs_RCS #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @SheilaHobbs_RCS, @SheilaHobbs_RCS
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:37 PM EDT
    A1: Seating and positioning can be the game changer for S focus. U could consider changing the term flexible seating to "learning tools." That is essentially what the seating becomes. #PatinsIcam
  • PATINSSandi Sep 4 @ 8:37 PM EDT
    A1: Ss benefit whenever they can make choices in their education. They feel powerless and trapped. #PatinsIcam
  • RachelH872 Sep 4 @ 8:37 PM EDT
    A1: Ss learn differently and are engaged in different ways, including how they sit! We need to provide a wide array of offerings to get the best out of them! #PatinsIcam
  • JulieHKuhn Sep 4 @ 8:37 PM EDT
    hahaha- #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @SheilaHobbs_RCS
  • katietaylorIN Sep 4 @ 8:37 PM EDT
    A1: U-shaped seating arrangements help everyone see each other and teacher/material #patinsicam
  • PATINSSandi Sep 4 @ 8:38 PM EDT
    I had a great one from that time in my career! So sensored. #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @SheilaHobbs_RCS
  • SheilaHobbs_RCS Sep 4 @ 8:38 PM EDT
    A1 Ss need options, learning styles, sensory needs are different. #PatinsIcam
  • RachelH872 Sep 4 @ 8:38 PM EDT
    Thank you for reinforcing the idea of "choice." It might be the only one they get that day! #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @PATINSSandi
  • JulieHKuhn Sep 4 @ 8:38 PM EDT
    A1: Active sitting promotes active learning. Learning cannot be passive. #PatinsIcam
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:38 PM EDT
    Q2: What are your favorite alternate seating suggestions? #PatinsIcam
  • jconti281 Sep 4 @ 8:38 PM EDT
    Jen Conti, Data&Outreach with PATINS. Hoping I can keep up with my first Tweet Chat in Noblesville. Funniest thing - S said to me "I'm the big dawg" and walked away. #PatinsIcam
  • danielgmcnulty Sep 4 @ 8:39 PM EDT
    A1: Because I (and most teachers I know) rarely sit in the same place from one hour or day to the next. What makes us think Ss are any different. #PatinsIcam
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:39 PM EDT
    Well said, @JulieHKuhn #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @JulieHKuhn, @JulieHKuhn
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:40 PM EDT
    A2: Indoor tents with soft lighting. Can be a sheet draped over a table with some pillows underneath or a refrigerator box transformed into a reading rocket #PatinsIcam
  • BevSharritt Sep 4 @ 8:40 PM EDT
    A2: Seating that incorporates movement (like a porch swing) #PatinsIcam
  • SheilaHobbs_RCS Sep 4 @ 8:40 PM EDT
    A1 Cont. Allow them to have a choice... will increase respect and engagement. #PatinsIcam
  • KelliJeanSLP Sep 4 @ 8:40 PM EDT
    Kelli Robertson - SLP origins... turned Autism Consultant... turned AT coach. Parent of #2e unique thinkers. Engineer of Ss supports & environments. One student said, "Whoa... you look a lot older than your picture on your badge." ๐Ÿ˜„#PatinsIcam
  • RachelH872 Sep 4 @ 8:40 PM EDT
    A2: Lots of textures and levels of support. I like to see chairs on the floor level...just saw off those legs! Don't forget to include traditional chairs too...some kids still prefer them! #PatinsIcam
  • PATINSSandi Sep 4 @ 8:41 PM EDT
    Come see my home office! I have a kneeling chair that rocks and a mushroom ball chair! I like anything that moves! I have never been more comfortable on the floor than in a #HowdaHug seat. You can borrow one of those. The other 2 are off limits! #PatinsIcam
  • Teach4SpclNeeds Sep 4 @ 8:41 PM EDT
    A2: Some alternative seating I use in my classroom are.. beach chairs, pillows and mats on the floor, office rolling chairs, therapy balls, and...free standing... I have trouble sitting still so thatโ€™s my favorite! #PatinsIcam
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:41 PM EDT
    Good reminder to keep "traditional" options for sure #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @RachelH872
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:41 PM EDT
    Q3: Who needs to be included in the flexible seating conversation? #PatinsIcam
  • RachelH872 Sep 4 @ 8:41 PM EDT
    Oh the Howdahug! I am such a fan of those things! #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @PATINSSandi
  • SheilaHobbs_RCS Sep 4 @ 8:42 PM EDT
    A2 I love exercise balls, but also, "teacher" chairs that swivel. #PatinsIcam
  • KelliJeanSLP Sep 4 @ 8:42 PM EDT
    A1: If we aren't comfortable, it's hard to learn. I used to do my best homework laying on my stomach on the floor. #patinsicam
  • PATINSSandi Sep 4 @ 8:42 PM EDT
    Ooooo! Textures are great! #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @RachelH872
  • danielgmcnulty Sep 4 @ 8:42 PM EDT
    A2: The floor... the steps, the window, a therapy ball, therapy discs, bands across legs of desk, standing desks, and bean bags, #PatinsIcam
  • jconradslp Sep 4 @ 8:42 PM EDT
    RESPECT! And the Ss feel it when you ask them to choose where and how they learn best. #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @SheilaHobbs_RCS
  • JulieHKuhn Sep 4 @ 8:42 PM EDT
    A3: The student, parents, administrators, custodians, paras. #PatinsIcam
  • RachelH872 Sep 4 @ 8:42 PM EDT
    Respect is such a strong element of this. Being listened to, considered. Huge part of the learning environment! #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @SheilaHobbs_RCS
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:43 PM EDT
    A3: The STUDENTS! Just ask them their preferences and maintain that student centered environment. Appyling student voice is a powerful thing #PatinsIcam
  • katietaylorIN Sep 4 @ 8:43 PM EDT
    A2: i would love a hammock! but pillows on the floor would be great in a classroom. #patinsicam
  • RachelH872 Sep 4 @ 8:43 PM EDT
    I am laughing so hard! HA Welcome to the chat tonight! #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @KelliJeanSLP
  • jconradslp Sep 4 @ 8:44 PM EDT
    Don't forget custodial staff, anyone who can give you honest feedback that it's safe #PatinsIcam
  • RachelH872 Sep 4 @ 8:44 PM EDT
    HI KAREN! So glad you are with us tonight!! Love your ideas...and I am with you! Sitting still is HARD! #PatinsIcam

    JIM!!!!!!!!!!!! #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @Nwboilermaker
  • JulieHKuhn Sep 4 @ 8:44 PM EDT
    I still love tents! #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @ksuding
  • KaraGuiff Sep 4 @ 8:44 PM EDT
    Doesnt need to look like it came from Pinterest. If it is ugly and comfy, it will stll get used. #PatinsIcam
  • SheilaHobbs_RCS Sep 4 @ 8:44 PM EDT
    A3 Anyone who will be active in your space, kids, teachers, custodians, parents, OT, PT, the list goes on and on... #PatinsIcam
  • RachelH872 Sep 4 @ 8:45 PM EDT
    JIM!!!!! Oh my gosh!!!! WELCOME! WE MISS YOU! #PatinsIcam Amazing story...stupid chicken head!
    In reply to @Nwboilermaker
  • danielgmcnulty Sep 4 @ 8:45 PM EDT
    A3: Students...ALWAYS the Ss. The parents, the OT, PT, SLP, and the admin and school board who can potentially help fund some additional flexible seating. #PatinsIcam
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:45 PM EDT
    I've seen your "ugly" first hand! It's BEAUTIFUL! #PatinsIcam
    • KaraGuiff Sep 4 @ 8:44 PM EDT
      Doesnt need to look like it came from Pinterest. If it is ugly and comfy, it will stll get used. #PatinsIcam
  • KelliJeanSLP Sep 4 @ 8:45 PM EDT
    A2: I love a variety of options. Bed risers on desk legs can create standing desks. Just remember that flexible seating can be overwhelming for Ss with #anxiety. Might give just 2-3 options for those Ss, embed student feedback & option to change. #patinsicam
  • BevSharritt Sep 4 @ 8:45 PM EDT
    My foster daughter has asked us to make her a sloth chair. . . I'm expecting a PINTEREST fail, but we are going to try. #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @KaraGuiff
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:45 PM EDT
    Q4: Boundaries are important! How would you ensure S success with new and exciting seating? #PatinsIcam
  • Teach4SpclNeeds Sep 4 @ 8:45 PM EDT
    I had a tent last year and no one used it! Crazy huh? My bean bag couch was a big hit... #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @JulieHKuhn, @ksuding
  • danielgmcnulty Sep 4 @ 8:46 PM EDT
    I'd have used the tent. #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @Teach4SpclNeeds, @JulieHKuhn, @ksuding
  • RachelH872 Sep 4 @ 8:46 PM EDT
    A flexible seating chat would not be complete without the queen of flexibility! WELCOME Kara! #PatinsIcam
    • KaraGuiff Sep 4 @ 8:44 PM EDT
      Doesnt need to look like it came from Pinterest. If it is ugly and comfy, it will stll get used. #PatinsIcam
  • jconradslp Sep 4 @ 8:46 PM EDT
    A4: asking them to, as a group, agree on some ground rules. How many people in the tent? What happens if three kids want the beanbag? #PatinsIcam
  • Teach4SpclNeeds Sep 4 @ 8:46 PM EDT
    I should have taught from inside the tent ๐Ÿ˜Š #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @danielgmcnulty, @JulieHKuhn, @ksuding
  • BevSharritt Sep 4 @ 8:47 PM EDT
    BLV teacher should test functional vision in a variety of seating --will help identify field loss, or possible mild cortical visual quirks. #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @danielgmcnulty
  • RachelH872 Sep 4 @ 8:47 PM EDT
    Feedback is so necessary! #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @KelliJeanSLP
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:47 PM EDT
    Thanks for bringing up that important piece. Absolutely agree. I get overwhelmed myself #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @KelliJeanSLP
  • danielgmcnulty Sep 4 @ 8:47 PM EDT
    A4: Take data after intro time and guide Ss through their own data, helping them to make informed decisions about their own success with various seating options. #PatinsIcam
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:47 PM EDT
    A4: Create an expected and unexpected use of seating with ur Ss and have it posted. Explain that seating should be their secondary focus and not primary focus to ensure their best learning. #PatinsIcam
  • JulieHKuhn Sep 4 @ 8:48 PM EDT
    haha, there are more pinterest fails than successes. #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @KaraGuiff
  • katietaylorIN Sep 4 @ 8:48 PM EDT
    A3: students and support staff and families #patinsicam
  • SheilaHobbs_RCS Sep 4 @ 8:48 PM EDT
    A4 Before you introduce it, set expectations. But in reality, if it is normal, part of your room. Kids will treat it just as though it belongs. #PatinsIcam
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:48 PM EDT
    U just can't make this stuff up. ha ha #PatinsIcam
    • KaraGuiff Sep 4 @ 8:47 PM EDT
      It is even uglier now, as the fire Marshall made us remove the cloth we duct taped on to make it a bit better. Baahaha
      In reply to @ksuding
  • Teach4SpclNeeds Sep 4 @ 8:48 PM EDT
    A4: I model the types of flexible seating and we discuss how and why we might use each type as a class community. Students and staff have to be mindful and respectful of learners and learning space. #PatinsIcam
  • jconradslp Sep 4 @ 8:48 PM EDT
    It's been the missing element for some of our #AugComm learners, something as simple and moving the seat away from the window #PatinsIcam
    • BevSharritt Sep 4 @ 8:47 PM EDT
      BLV teacher should test functional vision in a variety of seating --will help identify field loss, or possible mild cortical visual quirks. #PatinsIcam
      In reply to @danielgmcnulty
  • danielgmcnulty Sep 4 @ 8:49 PM EDT
    For sure! #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @BevSharritt
  • KelliJeanSLP Sep 4 @ 8:49 PM EDT
    A3: Students! Build student self-advocacy early. Have a convo, build in feedback (private feedback if #anxiety), and let parents know the goal of flexible seating and giving student choice. #patinsicam
  • katietaylorIN Sep 4 @ 8:49 PM EDT
    A4: have the students come up with the rules on usage #PatinsIcam
  • RachelH872 Sep 4 @ 8:49 PM EDT
    A4: I am not afraid to tape boundaries on the floor (but ask your custodian first...or bribe with brownies!) #PatinsIcam
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:49 PM EDT
    Q5: What would you say to Ts or Admins who do not see the importance of different kinds of seating options? #PatinsIcam
  • KelliJeanSLP Sep 4 @ 8:50 PM EDT
    A4: Always, always do expected-unexpected chart. Video modeling of how to use can also be fun & engage Ss in setting boundaries of how to use new materials/equipment. #patinsicam
  • SheilaHobbs_RCS Sep 4 @ 8:50 PM EDT
    A5 Invite them into your room, let the kids sell it! #PatinsIcam
  • jconradslp Sep 4 @ 8:50 PM EDT
    A5: switch their chair for a student chair for the week. hahaha #DontTakeMyOfficeChair #PatinsIcam
  • KaraGuiff Sep 4 @ 8:50 PM EDT
    A4 super important to plan time for students to try out all options. They might love something they thought they wouldn't, and visaversa #PatinsIcam
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:50 PM EDT
    A5: Model it. Offer relevant examples of how they felt during the most uncomfortable seating/positioning they have experienced and reflect on how that felt physically AND mentally #PatinsIcam
  • RachelH872 Sep 4 @ 8:50 PM EDT
    You are hitting all of the marks tonight: Advocacy, empowerment, choice! Excellent! #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @KelliJeanSLP
  • danielgmcnulty Sep 4 @ 8:51 PM EDT
    A5: I'd simply ask them how often they sit in the same place to work every day to produce their best ideas and secondly, if they are pleased with the achievement results they are currently getting from ALL students. #PatinsIcam
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:51 PM EDT
    Hold on ur keyboards & light up ur brains because I am about to rapid fire a few questions out... #PatinsIcam
  • katietaylorIN Sep 4 @ 8:51 PM EDT
    #5 observe the classroom and poll the classroom after a few months, pull some articles #patinsicam
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:52 PM EDT
    Brilliant. #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @jconradslp
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:52 PM EDT
    Q6: Does it have to be expensive? Any ideas for providing flexible seating for less $$$ or for free? #PatinsIcam
  • RachelH872 Sep 4 @ 8:52 PM EDT
    A5: I had the pleasure of listening to 7th graders commenting on a newly "UDLified" room. "I wish this was my class." "I would love to learn in here" "I wish my job was designing classrooms like this." Listening to them validated all of the research for me! #PatinsIcam
  • KaraGuiff Sep 4 @ 8:52 PM EDT
    A5, if really curious, I would invite them to interview Ss. If just crabby/snarky, nothing. Talking all day won't help that. #PatinsIcam
  • jconti281 Sep 4 @ 8:52 PM EDT
    A4: love the ground rules and modeling ideas. Can be taken a step further with older Ss by beginning the process of choosing the seating, show catalogues and prices, have them determine what is in the budget to be purchased, and create a sense of shared responsibility #PatinsIcam
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:53 PM EDT
    What a great idea, Jen! #PatinsIcam Thanks for sharing this.
    • jconti281 Sep 4 @ 8:52 PM EDT

  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:53 PM EDT
    A6: No and if you do not have a Pinterest account...put that on top of your list of to dos. I like exercise bands on chair legs and stand up desks! #PatinsIcam
  • KaraGuiff Sep 4 @ 8:54 PM EDT
    For design thinking day last year ss invented ideal work spaces. So i. Impressive. No on invented a hard chair connected to a desk!#PatinsIcam
  • RachelH872 Sep 4 @ 8:54 PM EDT

    Q7: How might flexible seating affect your classroom management? #PatinsIcam
  • RachelH872 Sep 4 @ 8:55 PM EDT
    Fantastic point! #Patinsicam
    In reply to @KaraGuiff
  • katietaylorIN Sep 4 @ 8:55 PM EDT
    A6: fb market place... tell the seller that you are teacher and what you plan to do with it and they are likely to give it to you for free! #patinsicam
  • JulieHKuhn Sep 4 @ 8:55 PM EDT
    A6: It is important to help Ss understand the strategy that works best for them. #PatinsIcam
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:56 PM EDT
    Who doesn't like FREE? #PatinsIcam Free but will a lot of high value!
    In reply to @katietaylorIN
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:56 PM EDT
    A7: Can decrease behaviors because S have a sense of control over their environment and learning needs are being validated. #PatinsIcam
  • jconti281 Sep 4 @ 8:56 PM EDT
    A6: goodwill 50% off days. Create an executive area with leather chairs for $10 bucks. #PatinsIcam
  • RachelH872 Sep 4 @ 8:56 PM EDT
    A7: I think some would think it is crazier...and it might be the first few days...but it becomes the norm and suddenly your Ss are REGULATING. Hmmmm..#PatinsIcam
  • jconradslp Sep 4 @ 8:57 PM EDT
    A7: In my speech room, the rule was safe and I had I see your mouth. I had a student that wanted to kneel away from me with a mirror for me to see his mouth. Why? No idea, but for that month he was engaged and felt safe, get creative with management! It's worth it! #PatinsIcam
  • katietaylorIN Sep 4 @ 8:57 PM EDT
    A7: You may find that some behaviors aren't there anymore and students are much more engaged #patinsicam
  • KelliJeanSLP Sep 4 @ 8:57 PM EDT
    A5: I try to make apparent the neurodiversity of adults & get some perspective-taking activated. Maybe collect a little visual data (e.g., photos) of Ts sitting/standing in varied positions. #patinsicam
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:57 PM EDT
    Love this. #PatinsIcam

    In reply to @jconradslp
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:57 PM EDT
    Q8: How would flexible seating look for Ss who are in wheelchairs? #PatinsIcam
  • danielgmcnulty Sep 4 @ 8:58 PM EDT
    A7: A "managed" class should be redefined from ...facing the front, hands up to speak, sitting in assigned location, and seeking out visual, tactile, or auditory feedback in less socially appropriate ways will likely decrease. #PatinsIcam
  • RachelH872 Sep 4 @ 8:58 PM EDT
    Such a good idea! #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @jconti281
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:58 PM EDT
    A8: One way could be the change of lighting in the perferred placement in the classroom. #PatinsIcam
  • KaraGuiff Sep 4 @ 8:58 PM EDT
    A6 grab those lawn chair cushions that flew off a truck into a ditch of they don't come claim them, instant seating. My anxious angry kids love yo build a square around themselves. #PatinsIcam
  • RachelH872 Sep 4 @ 8:59 PM EDT
    This is an amazing tactic! #PatinsIcam
    In reply to @KelliJeanSLP
  • KaraGuiff Sep 4 @ 8:59 PM EDT
    A7...it makes classroom discipline issues mostly disappear...amazinf!#PatinsIcam
  • ksuding Sep 4 @ 8:59 PM EDT
