21:29:33 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: Great idea to have students create academic review games

21:29:38 Vicki Davis -> -EdTechTalk: http://www.twilightsoftware.com/

21:33:10 cfoote -> -EdTechTalk: phew, took me awhile to get in here.

21:33:13 cfoote -> -EdTechTalk: not working on IE

21:33:24 alicebarr -> -EdTechTalk: I think I am going to have the Student Tech team listen to this and decide what games they want to add...

21:33:26 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: FF?

21:33:37 cfoote -> -EdTechTalk: @durff yep, using ff now

21:33:42 hshawjr -> -EdTechTalk: Played "Life" with student today

21:33:46 cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: http://www.murray.k12.ga.us/teacher/kara%20leonard/Mini%20T%27s/March%20... great site for game templates

21:34:02 Kern -> -EdTechTalk: I've played it for a while - never finished it :(

21:34:25 hshawjr -> -EdTechTalk: Wicked could you put that link out again?

21:34:43 WickedDecentLearning -> -EdTechTalk: It's the one Cheryl put up

21:34:50 ColleenK -> -EdTechTalk: @Kern I can't get through it but I'm video game challenged, I think.

21:34:51 hshawjr -> -EdTechTalk: okay

21:34:58 cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: Jeff, you and I are on the same wave length!

21:34:59 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: game development software - costs $ - http://www.immersiveeducation.com

21:35:06 WickedDecentLearning -> -EdTechTalk: I know... wierd

21:35:07 Kern -> -EdTechTalk: :D

21:35:30 Vicki Davis -> -EdTechTalk: http://msit.bloomu.edu/hmgee/GamerRater/GamerRater.html

21:35:48 WickedDecentLearning -> -EdTechTalk: I was trying to get a tinyurl up for it but I didn't get to it fast enough

21:35:53 cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: Hi Carolyn, did n't see you pop in.

21:36:05 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: Gazillionaire is a great trading game - http://www.lavamind.com/gaz.html

21:36:32 hshawjr -> -EdTechTalk: How about Second Life?

21:36:40 cfoote -> -EdTechTalk: What is the book that he is discussing? i was late

21:36:59 hshawjr -> -EdTechTalk: Been wanting to try, but no time to learn and kind of intimidated

21:37:03 Vicki Davis -> -EdTechTalk: It is Karl's book that he wrote.

21:37:20 Vicki Davis -> -EdTechTalk: http://www.gadgetsgamesandgizmos.com/

21:37:23 cfoote -> -EdTechTalk: thanks Vicki.

21:37:23 cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: Karl Kapp

21:37:25 jgates513 -> -EdTechTalk: isn't it something how much time and energy and money is spent filtering out games - because the teachers get tired of chasing kids off the game sites? so, the category is blocked - also blocking the good games

21:37:51 cfoote -> -EdTechTalk: there's some good posts on that topic Vicki on the Education Business Blog by Lee Wilson

21:37:56 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: http://karlkapp.com/index.htm

21:38:01 sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: I think he is so right, when games become component-based that can easily be manipulated by average users then they will become better teaching tools

21:38:03 ColetteC -> -EdTechTalk: @hshawjr SL not appropriate to use with student - TeenSL is only for teens

21:38:20 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: will you be posting all of these links from the chat on the delicious bookmarks for today? For some reason my browser stopped linking from chat window

21:38:36 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: yes, Peggy - will work on that

21:38:42 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: MMORPG on Google Earth http://www.gearthhacks.com/gemmo/

21:38:45 hshawjr -> -EdTechTalk: @ColetteC - thanks still learning what is :D

21:38:55 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: we were just saying tonight.... time to move to diigo?

21:39:08 cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: Peggy, not just you, but I can't link in chat room. We will try and collect all these. But the chat and podcast will be published by Thurs.

21:39:29 ColleenK -> -EdTechTalk: @hshawjr I don't think of Second Life as a game - more like a 3D environment to explore and meet others.

21:39:31 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: You can still stay on delicious and go to Diigo--save bookmarks in both places with one click

21:39:37 ColetteC -> -EdTechTalk: @sharonp you can post to diigo and it will also post on delicious if you set it up

21:39:39 Kern -> -EdTechTalk: Instead of SL for students I'm pulling for http://edugrids.org

21:39:59 hshawjr -> -EdTechTalk: @colleenK - only been there once and really didn't know what was going on;.

21:40:22 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: That is so sad about the wasted money on textbooks!

21:40:31 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: our state is talking about requiring textbook companies to have an electronic format.

21:40:34 kkapp -> -EdTechTalk: yes it is sad

21:40:40 ColleenK -> -EdTechTalk: @Kern I'm watching that one, too.

21:40:47 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: How do educators get on the Teen Grid in SL?

21:40:54 WickedDecentLearning -> -EdTechTalk: text books are REALLY expensive

21:41:09 ColetteC -> -EdTechTalk: @peggyg you have to apply

21:41:14 Kern -> -EdTechTalk: @peggyg you are stuck on an island

21:41:20 ColleenK -> -EdTechTalk: @PeggyG It's a process. Need to apply and get a background check.

21:41:20 jgates513 -> -EdTechTalk: maybe buy books by the chapters that you want

21:41:22 Vicki Davis -> -EdTechTalk: Games here - http://nobelprize.org/

21:41:25 hshawjr -> -EdTechTalk: talking History co-teacher to use web vs buying new text

21:41:30 Vicki Davis -> -EdTechTalk: I want to be able to customize my own book.

21:41:32 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: Textbook monopoly is political and $

21:41:34 cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: middle school, nobel prize website, nobelprize.org understanding plastic, alloys

21:41:41 WickedDecentLearning -> -EdTechTalk: Anyone heard of the "customizable" text book where the teacher picks the content from the list of options

21:41:48 cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: times attack, elementary multiplication for kids

21:41:48 Vicki Davis -> -EdTechTalk: You should see the article I wrote for their newsletter today.

21:41:53 Vicki Davis -> -EdTechTalk: I'll share it soon.

21:41:57 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @ColleenK-thanks--I was wondering if there was a background check on the adults :-) That's reassuring.

21:41:59 WickedDecentLearning -> -EdTechTalk: Kind of "buffet style" learning/teaching

21:42:06 kkapp -> -EdTechTalk: http://3dlanguage.net/cms/

21:42:13 hshawjr -> -EdTechTalk: @Wicked - No haven't heard that one, would like to know more

21:42:28 cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: high school spanish gadgetsgamesandgizmos.com 3Dlanguage, speak spanish into the game and evaluates your conversation

21:42:42 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: My grandson loved TimezAttack to learn his multiplication facts.

21:42:56 cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: thanks peggy for the spelling

21:43:29 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: He never seemed to tire of it and kept playing over and over--much more than he would have with a worksheet :-)

21:44:19 ColleenK -> -EdTechTalk: Dimenxian

21:44:52 cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: http://edugrids.org Kern Kelley mentioned this site.

21:45:18 cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: SL not appropriate for under age 18

21:45:20 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: edugrids is run on opensim?

21:45:22 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: How do you balance the amount of time spent on games with everything else in the classroom?

21:45:26 WickedDecentLearning -> -EdTechTalk: Anybody heard of ARGs? "Alternate Reality Games?"

21:45:41 Kern -> -EdTechTalk: @sharonp yes, I'm hoping to use it for a history class next year

21:45:45 ColleenK -> -EdTechTalk: @sharonp Yes about edugrids

21:46:16 cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: hi juwolf43, welcome

21:46:17 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: very cool, are you running opensim on your own server or do the edugrids people have a dedicated server?

21:46:56 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: Games in education needs to be short enough to be used in a classroom and still extended later is desired

21:46:59 ColleenK -> -EdTechTalk: @sharonp I believe it's still in development

21:47:13 Vicki Davis -> -EdTechTalk: @Wicked coming to you.

21:47:50 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: @mrmoses - Welcome Glen!

21:48:01 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Are Alternate Reality Games designed for schools?

21:48:42 WickedDecentLearning -> -EdTechTalk: I don't think there are many ARGs designed for schools but I know of one

21:48:45 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: I've never heard of ARG

21:48:46 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: the hardest thing is to teach the adults to stop banning the technology

21:48:49 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: I bought a gps unit just to get into geocaching

21:49:08 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: as soon as it is banned it becomes a problem

21:49:11 cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: there are geocaches everywhere

21:49:14 ColetteC -> -EdTechTalk: geocaching is so fun!

21:49:20 mrmosesdotorg -> -EdTechTalk: @sharonp - hi :) happpy to be here

21:49:26 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: when it is not an issue it is not a problem

21:49:34 hshawjr -> -EdTechTalk: if you don't understand it, scared by it avoid it as my 65+ fathers says

21:49:42 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: i don't get it

21:49:44 mrmosesdotorg -> -EdTechTalk: I just went to as session on ARGs

21:49:44 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @sharonp how do you use a gps with geocaches? Have you blogged about it?

21:49:56 cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: durff, our filters at school work really well with proxies that the kids find:-)

21:50:01 sheila -> -EdTechTalk: my parents geocache at 82 and 72!

21:50:02 ColetteC -> -EdTechTalk: http://www.geocaching.com/

21:50:11 cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: sweet, sheila

21:50:18 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: ther is quite a geocaching community

21:50:19 cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: hi congerjan, hello

21:50:21 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: or the kids set up proxies

21:50:28 mrmosesdotorg -> -EdTechTalk: it was as simple as making certian letters on a webpage students went to bold and leading students that see the clues somewhere

21:50:33 mrmosesdotorg -> -EdTechTalk: it was pretty cool

21:50:37 hshawjr -> -EdTechTalk: @sheila - cool my father puts his finger up to the wind and say go this way ;)

21:50:51 sheila -> -EdTechTalk: geocachers- have you used travel bugs in the classroom? It's great!

21:50:59 WickedDecentLearning -> -EdTechTalk: Here's a simple ARG designed by a teacher for his students http://www2.svsd.net/~lions/hexagon/

21:51:08 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @ColetteC Thanks-I need to learn about that. Just got a new GPS and had no idea you could use it with online projects

21:51:25 sheila -> -EdTechTalk: Geocaching and google earth!

21:51:26 cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: thanks for t hese great links, Jeff.

21:51:30 sheila -> -EdTechTalk: I use it

21:51:44 cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: Shelia, what age group!

21:51:50 sheila -> -EdTechTalk: middle school

21:51:58 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: that is because there is no separation btwn online and offline

21:52:01 ColetteC -> -EdTechTalk: I haven't used travel bugs yet - but will start soon

21:52:07 cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: I have a teacher starting with her middle schoolers.

21:52:09 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: only with adults

21:52:17 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: I think there is a lot of potential there for geocaching in education

21:52:57 Vicki Davis -> -EdTechTalk: Yes!

21:52:59 sheila -> -EdTechTalk: We have a travel bug that started in Antarctica and is now in the UK. People have been good about sending photos and descriptions of the areas.

21:53:12 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: That would be a fascinating show-who would you invite as your guest? geocaching

21:53:23 cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: that sounds like fun. Shelia, do you have a webpage?

21:53:28 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: I haven't really seen the educational potential of geocaching

21:53:30 Vicki Davis -> -EdTechTalk: I don't know @PeggyG -- lets find some teachers who are geocaching and bring them on.

21:53:36 Vicki Davis -> -EdTechTalk: Anyone here geocaching?

21:53:50 cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: and want to be on a show?

21:53:51 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Yes, teachers would be the best!

21:53:57 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: no - have a how to on it?

21:54:04 sheila -> -EdTechTalk: @cheryloakes - just minimal; but have some for teacher workshops.

21:54:20 Vicki Davis -> -EdTechTalk: I taught a student w/ Asburgers

21:54:28 Vicki Davis -> -EdTechTalk: I think I mispelled it.

21:54:32 sheila -> -EdTechTalk: I'd be happy to share what I do.

21:54:41 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: am related to some young people with Aspergers

21:54:41 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: Aspergers

21:54:44 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: aspergers

21:54:59 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: geocaching must be one of those things you have to expereince

21:55:48 kkapp -> -EdTechTalk: Asperger's syndrome

21:56:00 congerjan -> -EdTechTalk: I was an aide to a student with Aspergers... was a computer whiz...

21:56:02 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: w/ Aspergers...what a great idea!

21:56:08 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: try and convince parents of that

21:56:31 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: wow

21:56:42 ColetteC -> -EdTechTalk: @vicki I have a name for you for geocaching:

21:56:42 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: morning meeting was controversial when i did it

21:56:43 kkapp -> -EdTechTalk: true, parents can be an obstacle

21:56:48 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Just saw a feature story on a young woman with autism who told how she was able to function on Second Life--it was amazing!

21:56:48 ColetteC -> -EdTechTalk: Eva LaMar

21:56:53 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: I have a friend whose son has Aspergers

21:57:11 cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: Peggy, that is a great story.

21:57:16 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I think I saw the show on 60 minutes--not sure

21:57:33 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: neat

21:57:34 ColetteC -> -EdTechTalk: Geocaching resources from Eva LaMar http://www.evalamar.com/GPS/index.htm

21:57:45 congerjan -> -EdTechTalk: Wow... Asperger parents may be more receptive than you think because they would be able to see te "practice" aspect... and it is safer to try it on Second Life

21:57:56 cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: don't miss the chat and podcast on Thurs. at edtechtalk.com/womenofweb2

21:58:07 allears -> -EdTechTalk: Project Spectrum on Google talks about using sketch up with kids with autism

21:58:17 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: WE shared a LOT of links tonight - definitely worth revisiting

21:58:33 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: We need an educational SL - Education Life?

21:58:35 alicebarr -> -EdTechTalk: Can't wait to share this with students Thanks all of you!

21:59:00 ffoxworth -> -EdTechTalk: I was a late arriver. Is there a way to save or collect the links?

21:59:01 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: What? a WOW2 chat on Thursday???

21:59:06 mrmosesdotorg -> -EdTechTalk: If I could ever get off of Beginner's Island I could check some of this stuff out.

21:59:12 kkapp -> -EdTechTalk: www.gadgetsgamesandgizmos.com

21:59:18 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: A virtual 3D textbook!

21:59:18 mrmosesdotorg -> -EdTechTalk: What does it say that I'm horrible at Second Life?

21:59:21 cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: Hi, I post the chat and podcast on Thursday at edtechtalk.com

22:00:31 cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: Hi jasonr, almost done.

22:00:39 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Karl is an amazing expert on educational games--I have a lot to learn and will definitely buy his book!

22:00:41 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: Wish our schools recognized the skills students are gaining from gaming more than what they do

22:00:42 mrmosesdotorg -> -EdTechTalk: I'd love to, but can't get the volcano part on the Island to play nice . Really, I've tried. A lot.

22:00:45 JasonR -> -EdTechTalk: no worries

22:00:49 JasonR -> -EdTechTalk: sorry i missed most

22:01:30 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: Cheryl rocks - she has been getting that podcast up on the site in record times recently!
