19:40:48 Durff -> guinea pygs? we can do the hamster dance, thanks to Miguel
19:41:44 JenniferW -> way to go ALICE
19:42:18 Anne Leftwich -> I think this is more along those lines that teachers observe things like this to be true as opposed to research
19:42:41 Anne Leftwich -> Hi Jennifer!
19:42:54 JenniferW -> anne -- do you have an email address??
19:43:05 Anne Leftwich -> Yes, my email is [email protected]
19:43:07 JohnSchinker -> You shouldn't have told anyone about that doctorate
19:43:12 JenniferW -> LOL
19:43:36 JenniferW -> NO WAY -- what if you like to write
19:43:41 Durff -> she will never leve it down
19:43:44 alicemercer -> Yeah, Anne, I think that it makes intuitive sense, but someone at some point added numbers and different numbers
19:43:49 Durff -> oh no
19:43:56 JohnSchinker -> You have to have tenure to publish a book? What a stupid rule
19:44:09 Durff -> Skype just dropped me
19:44:12 JenniferW -> boy LULU would go out of business if people had to have tenure
19:44:37 JohnSchinker -> *grin* I was just going to post that link
19:44:42 alicemercer -> Well, that's a university or university publishing rule, no?
19:45:34 Durff -> ok on stream anyone else booted out of Skype?
19:45:35 sroseman -> wow...teachers ..all in the family
19:45:52 jeff -> try calling back lisa
19:45:55 alicemercer -> Okay, I think to that the person who posted the diagram is really concerned about effective instruction and in particular, LD students
19:45:57 JenniferW -> so she is 27???
19:46:07 alicemercer -> Anne, I'm a behaviorist.
19:46:14 jeff -> +99001110002721586
19:46:18 Durff -> I did. It won't go there
19:46:41 Anne Leftwich -> http://www.coatt.org
19:47:07 alicemercer -> I used to teach kids kicked out of regular school for behavior problems
19:47:37 Durff -> nope, invalid number
19:47:48 Durff -> it has an attitude
19:47:51 jeff -> indeed
19:47:56 jeff -> have you tried https://skypecasts.skype.com/skypecasts/skypecast/detailed.html?id_talk=...
19:48:02 Durff -> i did
19:48:08 alicemercer -> and I have an autistic (mild) son, so I use behavior mod. I find that there are few "pure" behaviorist teachers. Most do build intrinsic motivation whether than do it consciously or not.
19:48:29 alicemercer -> OH PULEEZE
19:48:55 Durff -> asperger's or autism?
19:48:59 JenniferW -> Sorry, we could not find the Skypecast you are looking for. Back to Skypecasts home
19:49:08 JenniferW -> that is what skype is telling me
19:49:54 jeff -> skype is less and less reliable these days
19:50:02 sroseman -> teachers value technology if it works for them and their students ..especially newish teachers
19:50:10 Anne Leftwich -> Exactly!
19:50:13 JenniferW -> but I am still okay being 30 seconds behind the REAL conversation
19:50:24 Gary -> I had the same problem but it seems to be working now (Skype)
19:50:35 JenniferW -> Anne Leftwich -- we need to have you on a Women of Web 2.0 -- chat -- I will send you info later!!
19:50:36 Anne Leftwich -> I think that eclectic is the best way to go
19:50:38 jeff -> hmmm, perhaps keep trying
19:50:50 JenniferW -> I shall try again
19:51:22 JenniferW -> hmmm
19:51:32 JenniferW -> real life sound -- so cool
19:53:34 Durff -> there are buzz words and there is what workss
19:53:52 Durff -> behavior mod works
19:53:56 sroseman -> And Anne Leftwich, I want you as a guest on www.tappedin.org ..I offer K to 3+ Great Resources twice monthly sessions ... at some point
19:55:16 JenniferW -> where did we find Anne L??? so cool -- thanks EdTechTalk!!

20:03:03 JenM -> yes ... this is my program at Indiana University
20:03:06 alicemercer -> Next, can we push Cathy's Making Connections?

20:05:46 JenM -> oops try this http://www.indiana.edu/~istde/
20:05:47 sharonp -> sakai - what do people know about it??

20:06:13 sharonp -> sakai may figger big in my future
20:06:15 alicemercer -> Tenure track, not tenured, right?
20:06:24 JohnSchinker -> I haven't used it though
