19:11:20 JenWagner -> through ustream
19:11:21 alicemercer -> Hmm, I think that they don't want to do it
19:11:33 PeggyG -> Did you all know you can create YouTube groups to share your favorite YouTube videos via a URL? I discovered that about a month ago and it's great!
19:11:47 alicemercer -> Share when we figure it out?

19:33:07 PeggyG -> Did you hear the average at NECC was 40? Amazing!
19:33:20 JenW -> hmmmm that sounds low to me
19:33:25 JenW -> I would have thought about 47
19:33:25 alicemercer -> Bull frisbees?
19:33:30 mrsdurff -> if i could learn anyone could learn
19:33:42 mrsdurff -> case closed
19:33:47 alicemercer -> And not have a crazy professor?
19:33:58 JenW -> LOL -- do they pay to come??
19:34:04 alicemercer -> how many complaint letters will the dept chair get?
19:34:05 mrsdurff -> probably
19:34:13 Cathy E -> I'm with ya Durff _ If I can anybody can
19:34:20 mrsdurff -> does he want his  job?
19:34:26 JenW -> Hmmmm -- does he find joy in this??

19:35:27 JenW -> No Student Left Behind  -- unless you can't keep up.   :)
19:35:32 PeggyG -> http://universe.daylife.com/ Has anyone used this site? Amazing data visualization site-learned about it at SIGTE Forum at NECC.
19:35:37 kcaise -> are we talking adult learners or kids?
19:35:41 mrsdurff -> or are in dave's class
19:35:52 JenM -> @kcaise ... adults
19:35:55 kcaise -> ty
19:35:59 JenW -> go search them out -- bring them back!!!!!
19:36:27 mrsdurff -> they are scared to ask
19:36:37 PeggyG -> Sounds like many still need scaffolding.
19:36:47 mrsdurff -> maybe start a bit more slowly
19:36:52 mrsdurff -> he did say it
19:37:03 mrsdurff -> i didn't have to say it
19:37:15 JenW -> can I sign up for the class with an alias???   :)
19:37:24 JL -> http://news.google.com/archivesearch
19:37:29 mrsdurff -> but JenW
19:37:30 Sarah S -> The class sounds like lots of fun.
19:37:31 alicemercer -> This relates to a recent newspaper article on computer ed classes being underenrolled, even though there are "computer" jobs in area
19:37:35 PeggyG -> I like the UK alternative to NCLB--more positive--Every Child Matters.
19:37:37 mrsdurff -> you know these things
19:37:50 JenW -> yeah --- someone made a funny with the strawberry and delicious and you didn't even get it....   :)
19:37:51 Cathy E -> so if you lost 6 teacher - how many kids will not be exposed
19:38:06 Cathy E -> to the tools
19:38:08 JenW -> Well he said that 2 had to leave for other reasons
19:38:09 alicemercer -> And the class they were at in a COmmunity college had them using spreadsheets, I'm like THAT IS NOT COMPUTER SCIENCE!
19:38:10 mrsdurff -> don't tell him JenW
19:38:13 JenW -> so really only 4
19:38:42 kcaise -> @cathy e: i would think that if they couldn't hang the first week they wouldn't necessarily be exposing their students to the tools regardless of the class
19:38:43 Sarah S -> Better model the process and teaching style than condone the "powerpoint" delivery status quo.
19:38:45 JenW -> I would really really love it if GMAIL gave the option that you could see if MAIL had been read
19:38:53 JohnS -> Textbook Piracy Grows Online, Prompting a Counterattack From Publishers: http://chronicle.com/free/2008/07/3623n.htm  and Campus copyright battle moves to textbook torrents:
http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20080701-campus-copyright-battle-mo...
19:39:24 mrsdurff -> duh!
19:39:36 Cathy E -> @kcaise - I agree - but what do we do with those teachers
19:39:39 JenW -> We tried to sell textbooks on ebay -- and got kicked off -- especially when we tried to sell the teacher edition.  Actually, I was glad they did
19:39:45 alicemercer -> Well WHO WOULDN'T!
19:40:03 alicemercer -> I bought books i never used, and couldn't resell because they had a NEW Edition!
19:40:05 Alvin Trusty -> I have seen students print the books on university printers.
19:40:10 dave -> http://azureus.sourceforge.net/
19:40:10 mrsdurff -> jenW you get kicked out of everywhere
19:40:52 JenM -> livey anyone? http://www.lively.com/html/landing.html
19:40:56 JenW -> MrsDurff -- ahhhh, nope
19:41:04 JenW -> Lively -- scared me
19:41:08 Cathy E -> JenW- I did lively
19:41:12 PeggyG -> Lively is only for PCs- :-(
19:41:14 Cathy E -> didn't really like it
19:41:42 JenW -> I was disappointed with the fact that it had the ickiness and was associated with Google
19:42:03 JenW -> I guess I thought Google was a Family Kinda Business and found out -- NOPE, I was wrong
19:42:11 PeggyG -> Probably not a threat to SL...
19:42:15 JL -> http://www.courant.com/news/local/columnists/hc-rgreen0708.artjul08,0,28...
19:42:22 JenW -> not a threat
19:42:37 LindaN -> Worked on selfcontrol today while working on my preso- so I didn't try it yet- not worth it?
19:42:40 kcaise -> one of my weblin friends was telling me about an 'adult' second life environment
19:43:04 JenW -> Linda -- do a search on adult content and lively google
19:43:07 PeggyG -> I read those Julie Amero articles this week-so sad that is still going on!! Disgusting really!
19:43:07 Cathy E -> That poor woman
19:43:12 JenW -> or just believe me -- it is scary!
19:43:15 Christine Southard -> That is insane!
19:43:39 PeggyG -> Think they're trying to save face with their botched trial!
19:43:50 mrsdurff -> there must be something JenM
19:43:52 JohnS -> Kwik Surveys: http://www.kwiksurveys.com
19:43:55 JenW -> is she like the POSTER CHILD??
19:44:06 kcaise -> needing to make a quota for the week?
19:44:10 Christine Southard -> It sounds shady that they haven't just dismissed this case.
19:44:36 JenM -> Jen's Shameless Self-Promotion ... http://openeducationnews.org/2008/07/07/welcome-to-open-education-news/
19:44:47 PeggyG -> Is kwiksurveys better than Google forms? too bad it doesn't embed.
19:44:49 JenW -> oohhhh clapping for Jen
19:45:20 JohnS -> It's easier to set up surveys than Google, but it doesn't embed, and it doesn't have the built-in sharing tools
19:45:27 JohnS -> for the results, I mean
19:45:53 JL -> http://www.edubloggercon.com/BLC2008  
http://novemberlearning.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=18...
19:46:02 JenW -> I still like using PHP Surveyor -- now called LimeSurvey
19:46:26 JohnS -> Cellphone use potentially risky for kids, teens: health agency: http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2008/07/12/cellphones-kids.html
19:46:33 mrsdurff -> and there is a ning
19:46:37 JenW -> they will be streaming when they can
19:46:44 JenW -> just check twitter
19:46:44 LindaN -> I certainly hope there is lots to see from there
19:46:47 PeggyG -> Doesn't sound like much streaming coming from EBC East
19:46:55 JenW -> tomorrow will be STREAMED though -- I thought
19:47:07 mrsdurff -> i think so too
19:47:11 JL -> is 'can' determined by connection or licensing?
19:47:30 Alvin Trusty -> especially if kids have popcorn in their ears
19:47:30 PeggyG -> maybe both
19:47:39 JenM -> zazzle: http://www.zazzle.com/custom/profilecards
19:47:42 JenW -> I believe it is availabity of bandwidth and not licensing
19:47:43 mrsdurff -> popcorn?
19:47:49 LindaN -> It's the theory of too much of anything is bad for you
19:48:03 JenW -> However, it will be interesting to see what Alan November might say
19:48:28 JenW -> HE -- ALAN -- has been generous with giving a room for the EBC tomorrow
19:48:37 mrsdurff -> i've heard both opinions JenW
19:48:40 JL -> http://www.webcastacademy.net/
19:49:00 PeggyG -> Great price on Zazzle cards! sounds cheaper than MOO cards.
19:49:05 Cathy E -> I have cards- but I don' have that cool case
19:49:12 JenW -> I better be careful what I say since someone could googlesearch my comments    :)
19:49:18 alicemercer -> 20, I think I went through about 200 at NECC
19:49:19 mrsdurff -> for real this time
