Join us as we converse with Karen Janowski, BrianFriedlander, Tammy Dupre, Joy  Zabala and Deb Barrows, with the Women of Web, Jen Wagner, Sharon Peters and Cheryl Oakes. Vicki was lucky enough to be in the mountains with her family!

You will hear the Wow's of the week great tips and resources for assistive technology, as well as a great conversation. The chat was buzzing and the wiki is full of the links.

Enjoy!

Questions:


How is it that we identify assistive technology vs. good educational practice? I think this will help others understand the basis for our continuing conversations.Brian, Karen, Tammy, Deb, Joy
What is the most signficant technology change that has impacted you and your students in the past 3 years? Brian, Karen, Tammy, Deb, Joy Questions or comments from the panel of guests:

What happens when you have one child in a class that has to have a laptop with spell check for writing papers and the others do not have it? How do you answer the questions? How do you handle it? (from Vicki)
Brian, Karen, Tammy, Deb, Joy

What should happen to Standardized Testing in light of assistive technology? Should children who have a prescription be allowed to use a computer or is it an "unfair advantage" as some say? (from Vicki)

Talk about learning disabilities and gifted children -- what happens when a gifted child has a learning disability? Are teachers willing to accommodate? How does a parent advocate such accommodation? (from Vicki)

WOW 2 Wiki and links.

 21:27:26  Durff -> EdTechTalk: parentss are so resistant
 21:27:54  bwwojci -> EdTechTalk: my thought on this question....the internet....
 21:28:03  Durff -> EdTechTalk: cable
 21:28:16  Deb Barrows -> EdTechTalk: Hi Charlotte
 21:28:17  Mark_Cerasale -> EdTechTalk: PDAs
 21:28:21  cducote -> EdTechTalk: Hi Deb!
 21:28:26  cducote -> EdTechTalk: How's it going?
 21:28:30  Durff -> EdTechTalk: cable makes it all more accessible
 21:28:35  Durff -> EdTechTalk: at home for me
 21:28:45  KarenJanowski -> EdTechTalk: www.teachingeverystudent.blogspot.com
 21:28:46  bwwojci -> EdTechTalk: Especially for students with disabilities...just having things online creates so much more accessibility
 21:28:49  Durff -> EdTechTalk: and at school for our servers
 21:29:23  bwwojci -> EdTechTalk: The opensource movment in the area of assistive technology has begun to make a great impact as well
 21:29:31  bwwojci -> EdTechTalk: www.oatsoft.com
 21:29:32  Durff -> EdTechTalk: without access, the tools are useless
 21:29:32  KarenJanowski -> EdTechTalk: http://teachingeverystudent.blogspot.com/2007/06/free-technology-toolkit...
 21:29:36  JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: Susan Silverman does UDL projects -- http://kids-learn.org/ladybugs/
 21:29:43  bwwojci -> EdTechTalk: www.oatsoft.org...my fault
 21:29:47  bwwojci -> EdTechTalk: that is opensource AT
 21:30:24  EllenH -> EdTechTalk: Even for regular students...and high incidence disabilities online homeowrk or notes only makes studying easier! I love it when my teachers post notes on their website
 21:30:32  Durff -> EdTechTalk: size would be last 20 years i would think
 21:30:52  Durff -> EdTechTalk: yes ellen!
 21:31:03  bwwojci -> EdTechTalk: the nice thing about UDL is that it is good for many students...not just those with disabilties
 21:31:11  Durff -> EdTechTalk: i post EVERYTHING on the blog
 21:31:13  KarenJanowski -> EdTechTalk: Ellen, yes, that's UDL - what benefits kids with disabilities benefits all kids
 21:31:15  Durff -> EdTechTalk: or wikis
 21:31:16  Deb Barrows -> EdTechTalk: I agree Brian
 21:31:18  JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: BW -- yes  I agree
 21:32:20  patruffing -> EdTechTalk: yahoo is trying to get "yahoo teachers" going
 21:32:39  bwwojci -> EdTechTalk: i heatd of that...what do u know about it pat?
 21:32:45  patruffing -> EdTechTalk: i went on their link
 21:32:48  EllenH -> EdTechTalk: Our Math/Science teachers have Smartboards ..but getting them in the habit to post/upload notes each time is the hardest behavior to train in my co-teachers. LOL  Then if I need to get my kids who use AT notes quicker they just hand me thier flash/usb drive and Presto! :)
 21:32:52  patruffing -> EdTechTalk: but it is too vague
 21:33:06  patruffing -> EdTechTalk: just says come to NY...no times even listed for workshop
 21:33:08  Jason Hando -> EdTechTalk: http://teachers.yahoo.com
 21:33:11  JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: http://womenofwebchats.wikispaces.com/June192007
 21:33:17  JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: please add your links to our WIKI
 21:33:17  bwwojci -> EdTechTalk: thx jason
 21:33:23  patruffing -> EdTechTalk: i wanted specifics even tho it was free
 21:34:27  bwwojci -> EdTechTalk: I am reflecting on that question about the biggest technology change that has impacted...I think the general movement towards these supports being 'built in' to commonplace products is very excitiing
 21:34:42  Deb Barrows -> EdTechTalk: Here's a link to a Clicker 5 wiki space http://clicker5lifeskills.wikispaces.com/ Please add a page and share what you are doing.
 21:35:50  patruffing -> EdTechTalk: we had a student who was supposed to have worked on keyboarding last summer so he could use a laptop for notes in class...but it was a disaster because he couldn't keep up typing-wise (tho I feel the major problem was all students having to copy notes from the board in this day and age)
 21:36:00  JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: http://womenofwebchats.wikispaces.com/June+19%2C+2007 -- this is the correct LINK
 21:36:19  Durff -> EdTechTalk: but there is openoffice!
 21:36:38  Durff -> EdTechTalk: kids could be using that
 21:36:51  Durff -> EdTechTalk: instead of outdated Word 97
 21:36:52  KarenJanowski -> EdTechTalk: note taking is an important issue and accomodating for the disabilities
 21:37:11  Durff -> EdTechTalk: NoteStar
 21:37:20  patruffing -> EdTechTalk: our student has Aspberger's (did I spell that right?)
 21:37:30  Durff -> EdTechTalk: I wonder if it does voice?
 21:37:31  KarenJanowski -> EdTechTalk: I like to show kids WordTalk which works so well with Word
 21:37:35  Durff -> EdTechTalk: Jott does
 21:37:52  Durff -> EdTechTalk: Jott is what i use
 21:37:58  KarenJanowski -> EdTechTalk: it's free text-to-speech with simultaneous highlighting, talking spell checker and talking thesaurus
 21:38:00  Durff -> EdTechTalk: when i am driving
 21:38:02  patruffing -> EdTechTalk: i don't know jott
 21:38:10  sroseman -> EdTechTalk: Yahoo for teachers is holding 5 FREE one day workshops for teachers in Chicago, New York, San Diego and Austin ..nothing in Canada
 21:38:15  Durff -> EdTechTalk: try it out
 21:38:29  KarenJanowski -> EdTechTalk: pat, do u have an AT team in your district
 21:38:31  patruffing -> EdTechTalk: yes...i checked out the NY workshop...no specifics
 21:38:35  CheriT -> EdTechTalk: when are the chicago dates?
 21:38:47  patruffing -> EdTechTalk: well we have IST instructional support teams
 21:38:59  patruffing -> EdTechTalk: and adaptations are made as needed
 21:39:07  patruffing -> EdTechTalk: but not really "special ed" in my school
 21:39:52  patruffing -> EdTechTalk: our student mostly gets his adaptations because his mother is such a strong advocate for him
 21:40:12  patruffing -> EdTechTalk: she fights for support personnel from the public school district
 21:40:14  CLykowski -> EdTechTalk: I've recorded study guides as podcasts for students who need to hear instruction more than once
 21:40:21  sroseman -> EdTechTalk: Here are the dates ..* July 2 in Chicago, IL * July 11 in New York City, NY * July 12 in New York City, NY * July 19 in Austin, TX * July 28 in San Diego, CA* July 2 in Chicago, IL * July 11 in New York City, NY * July 12 in New York City, NY * July 19 in Austin, TX * July 28 in San Diego, CA
 21:40:28  Durff -> EdTechTalk: is this the word talk you use http://www.wordtalk.org.uk/
 21:40:34  cheryloakes wow2 -> EdTechTalk: Mel Levine and Rick Lavoie are great sources for help with AT
 21:40:39  KarenJanowski -> EdTechTalk: yes!
 21:40:44  Durff -> EdTechTalk: cool
 21:40:51  EllenH -> EdTechTalk: What software do you use to record your podcasts?
 21:40:54  cheryloakes wow2 -> EdTechTalk: hi mmiller! I loved your daughter in the podcast
 21:40:55  BWWOJCI -> EdTechTalk: Word talk is an awesme program
 21:40:58  CLykowski -> EdTechTalk: Audacity
 21:41:00  Durff -> EdTechTalk: i want to look at that
 21:41:15  patruffing -> EdTechTalk: i am in favor of the podcasting avenue...a teacher could record notes and students can listen and review on an mp3player,etc
 21:41:17  KarenJanowski -> EdTechTalk: Durff, i posted a teachertube video about Word Talk
 21:41:23  Durff -> EdTechTalk: what about audacity?
 21:41:26  patruffing -> EdTechTalk: i did that for regular students
 21:41:45  Durff -> EdTechTalk: ok karen
 21:41:46  KarenJanowski -> EdTechTalk: check it out
 21:41:47  CLykowski -> EdTechTalk: It was available for any of my students who needed or wanted it
 21:41:47  patruffing -> EdTechTalk: i use audacity
 21:42:07  CLykowski -> EdTechTalk: a lot of them took advantage of it
 21:42:22  Durff -> EdTechTalk: i used podomatic to create podcasts to post for my kids
 21:42:46  Durff -> EdTechTalk: there are free audio books too
 21:43:09  patruffing -> EdTechTalk: durff...i listened to your podcasts that you posted on your blog recently
 21:43:42  Deb Barrows -> EdTechTalk: Accessible Book Collection is a great site: http://www.accessiblebookcollection.org/
 21:43:48  JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: one of our teachers used the Ipod to prove to parents and administration that one of her students has a speech need -- and another had a reading need
 21:44:01  JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: but as you said -- she didn't realize she was using assistive learning
 21:44:11  JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: she was just using the best tool to get the job done
 21:44:14  Durff -> EdTechTalk: i didn't even see that one deb - thanks
 21:44:36  JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: sorry-- she used a microphone on the ipod
 21:45:41  Durff -> EdTechTalk: i did that too, but for regular kids - only a few included and didn't need it as assistive - but it helps all kids
 21:45:45  sharonp -> EdTechTalk: Wow, I am learning so much from this group of experts tonight - I realize how little I know!
 21:45:58  Durff -> EdTechTalk: not true
 21:46:02  KarenJanowski -> EdTechTalk: sharon - great that this is helpful!
 21:46:36  Deb Barrows -> EdTechTalk: There's a great interview on ABC's site with David Diktah, Director of ATA http://abcnews.go.com/Video/playerIndex?id=2882931
 21:47:19  Jason Hando -> EdTechTalk: update on Will's talk - showing examples of authors commenting when students blog about their book - powerful!
 21:47:35  Durff -> EdTechTalk: my public school made the mistake of classifying me as gifted - sorry 'bout their luck
 21:47:51  Durff -> EdTechTalk: but i had fun making movies and hatching eggs
 21:47:53  JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: grins -- heard that before   :)  Will loves telling that story
 21:47:54  CLykowski -> EdTechTalk: Sharon you know quite a bit and I'll be looking towards you for a little guidance in my upcoming project
 21:48:02  cheryloakes wow2 -> EdTechTalk: that makes sense you are a gifted teacher :-)

 21:57:08  Durff -> EdTechTalk: Life
 21:57:09  JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: Ijust expected him to be hmmmmmmm
 21:57:12  EllenH -> EdTechTalk: Ah... :)
 21:57:15  JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: not so accomodating
 21:57:17  Jason Hando -> EdTechTalk: oh ok, I misunderstood - thgt I was "poking teh tiger" :-)
 21:57:26  JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: I thought you were going too too
 21:57:28  Durff -> EdTechTalk: Ellen it's a virtual world
 21:57:33  JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: I thought he would react more
 21:57:39  JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: what a disppointment
 21:57:41  JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: :)
 21:57:46  Jason Hando -> EdTechTalk: he is putting on "airs and graces" as we say
 21:57:55  JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: poking the tiger from Socal didn't work
 21:57:59  sharonp -> EdTechTalk: he would have been testy if he knew it was Jen asking on a dare!
 21:58:00  JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: he is being tactful
 21:58:05  Durff -> EdTechTalk: he probably knew you were behind it jen
 21:58:09  sharonp -> EdTechTalk: actually I think he would have been amused
 21:58:14  Jason Hando -> EdTechTalk: I should have said Jen's name
 21:58:16  CLykowski -> EdTechTalk: Jen is being bad:-)
 21:58:23  EllenH -> EdTechTalk: I participate in something similar for ancienthistory buffs... www.ancientworlds.net
 21:58:24  BWWOJCI -> EdTechTalk: 'clickers' have had some great success with diverse learners as well
 21:58:28  Durff -> EdTechTalk: no jason!
 21:58:37  Jason Hando -> EdTechTalk: that sounds good Ellen, will check out
 21:58:40  CLykowski -> EdTechTalk: My class loves using clickers
 21:58:52  Durff -> EdTechTalk: yup ellen
 21:58:59  Durff -> EdTechTalk: is that for kids?
 21:59:00  JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: you can tell him that I dared you
 21:59:03  JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: from SOCal
 21:59:08  patruffing -> EdTechTalk: clickers...i have only seen sets of 32..we have 35 in a class
 21:59:23  JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: from across the Pacific -- I tried to push his buttons
 21:59:28  sharonp -> EdTechTalk: please.... am a newbie from Canada.... what is a clicker?
 21:59:47  CLykowski -> EdTechTalk: Clickers are like a remote control
 22:00:02  CheriT -> EdTechTalk: clickers are indivdual hand held objects, like a remote control - students respond to teacher prompts
 22:00:04  CLykowski -> EdTechTalk: it is set up with questions similar to ppt format
 22:00:16  EllenH -> EdTechTalk: AW has a few kids (high school) on it... mostly adults. Historical discussion, social, and some role-play Ancient Rome, Celtia, Greece, Egypt, Americas..etc
 22:00:16  CLykowski -> EdTechTalk: and they choose their answers
 22:00:20  patruffing -> EdTechTalk: you can tell who has answered and who hasn't
 22:00:21  sharonp -> EdTechTalk: used with a smartboard or some such?
 22:00:27  CLykowski -> EdTechTalk: instant feedback for scoring
 22:00:28  CheriT -> EdTechTalk: the instructor can check for understanding, poll students and more
 22:00:48  BWWOJCI -> EdTechTalk: it allows students who would not traditionally participate...do so
 22:00:51  Durff -> EdTechTalk: I want to show kids a few virtual games in July
 22:00:53  Larry.Carlton -> EdTechTalk: great in mathematics class
 22:00:54  CLykowski -> EdTechTalk: I use projector and whiteboard
 22:00:59  Jason Hando -> EdTechTalk: are clickers widely used in north america?
 22:01:04  patruffing -> EdTechTalk: they can answer incorrectly without feeling wrong in front of everyone
 22:01:13  CheriT -> EdTechTalk: right, no names
 22:01:15  patruffing -> EdTechTalk: we can't afford them
 22:01:15  JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: wooo Larry -- that green is a bit hard on eyes
 22:01:17  CLykowski -> EdTechTalk: my school has several sets in my building
 22:01:20  sharonp -> EdTechTalk: I am sure I have never seen them! Wow, i have a lot to catch up on!
 22:01:26  Durff -> EdTechTalk: if anyone has any...save them to my delicious please - for: durff
 22:02:02  CLykowski -> EdTechTalk: you can use as assessment and kids can have scores right away
 22:02:18  CheriT -> EdTechTalk: no names, but the instructor has clicker info on each student, so she/he can track their clicks
 22:02:19  CLykowski -> EdTechTalk: or use them as study guides specialized for each student
 22:02:29  Jason Hando -> EdTechTalk: next version of clickers might be text messaging from phones
 22:02:40  JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: Any last questions
 22:02:44  JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: we are wrapping up
 22:02:50  CLykowski -> EdTechTalk: none here
