19:03:24 JasonR -> Worldbridges is a little tougher to nail down
19:03:30 Karen James -> that was great fun, thanks everyone!
19:03:58 JohnS -> Seriously, Jason? You made my day.
19:04:30 JasonR -> Will be posting audio to cephalopodcast.com if anyone wants to listen. Should be up later tonight (fingers crossed)
19:04:50 JasonR -> If DS or someone can get me the first five minutes, obliged.
19:05:12 AlexL -> anyway, this is my first time listening to this podcast, can anyone enlighten me more about it?
19:05:21 drew buddie -> Hey there
19:05:32 Durff -> hey drew
19:05:35 drew buddie -> Sorry I was busy for the latter part of the evening
19:05:36 JohnS -> Alex, they're 23 hours into a continuous discussion centered around Earth Day.
19:05:44 derrallg -> hi Drew
19:05:56 JohnS -> We have people here from all over the world.
19:06:13 Durff -> we do
19:07:21 drew buddie -> Such cameraderie - given the fact I have never met any of you before
19:07:26 AlexL -> Cool, so is this just an annual podcast?
19:07:32 drew buddie -> very very special
19:07:36 Durff -> hi jeff
19:07:48 drew buddie -> Is there any prospect that this could be more regular with a different theme?
19:07:55 Durff -> hi janice
19:08:01 Durff -> oops
19:08:07 PeggyG -> This is the first of it's kind--hope it will become an annual event :-)
19:08:30 JohnS -> @drew what other kind of theme?
19:08:38 doug -> anyone else like to join the voice call
19:08:41 doug -> Drew
19:08:57 doug -> just tried to find you skype,but am obviously trying wrong name
19:08:59 Durff -> any one in the chatroom dieing to talk?
19:09:10 AlexL -> awesome
19:09:22 AlexL -> I would like to talk, except that I'm still at work
19:09:30 drew buddie -> I don't know - ANY sort of theme - Olympics?
19:10:00 PeggyG -> I liked both the live events and the pre-recorded events! The students have provided an amazing voice in this conversation.
19:10:35 sheila -> My students actually monitored the chat room and let me know when there were questions for Robin.
19:10:44 JohnS -> This is a very compelling format for something that's truly global, like Earth Day. It was the perfect topic for this kind of thing.
19:10:53 doug -> sheila, ready to skype?
19:10:58 dc -> kind of exposes the weaknesses in the digital native metaphone eh?

19:11:39 doug -> oh yes
19:11:42 Durff -> he has pro
19:11:45 JohnS -> @dc the digital native is a moving target -- sometimes they have a great deal of familiarity with some techs, but not everything, and it's always changing.
19:11:47 Durff -> he is rich
19:11:51 pam shoemaker -> I can leave
19:12:42 pam shoemaker -> I'm out - bring sheila in
19:13:58 AlexL -> I can't really read much (at work), so I'm leaving the chat. Great podcast again!

19:14:16 doug -> no Pam
19:14:28 doug -> like to see how many we can get before it "tips over"

19:14:48 pam shoemaker -> oh - call me back then
19:15:36 cristina -> joao is a teacher from Portugal
19:15:47 Durff -> excellent
19:15:52 PeggyG -> The facilitation of the entire event has been terrific. Filling in gaps, troubleshooting, transitions between sessions--I'm in awe!
19:15:53 doug -> Sheila you need to add me as a contact before I can add you
19:15:56 matt montagne -> hello walnut creek!

19:16:07 JasonR -> I am connected from Florida
19:18:46 PeggyG -> I was so impressed with the various teachers who brought in their students and to listen in on the relationships they had. Such a positive experience for all of us.

19:19:19 doug -> who would like to be contestant #10 in "Can we Crash Skype?" the new WB reality show

19:21:08 tkidd132 -> Hey
19:21:17 sheila -> although we did talk about chatroom etiquette afterwards . . .
19:22:05 PeggyG -> I think the chatroom was a new experience for some of the students and they weren't used to having adults in the chat conversation.
19:22:58 Durff -> i need to equip my students with the skills to interact well in chatrooms
19:23:29 tkidd132 -> Durff, are any of your students here?
19:23:36 sheila -> I've already been thinkin g about that.

19:26:04 sheila -> @cmtvarok - I made them use 4 letter codes so I knew who they were.
19:26:05 doug -> @cmtvarok--bouncing and banning is an option for admin here
19:26:25 doug -> in terms of security, and chat itself
19:26:34 doug -> IP addresses are also logged
19:26:39 tkidd132 -> is this a teacher talking or student?
19:26:57 Durff -> who?
19:27:01 cmtvarok -> thanks. my district is so scared of liability and safety, that they've banned everything.

20:38:38 Durff -> because we can't go there

20:40:05 chris/student -> sure do
20:40:08 JenWagner -> @chris -- I used Diigo for a month and then withdrew my membership :)
20:40:12 JasonR -> yeah, contribute. The intercast is valuable. The learning.
20:40:12 Durff -> i have to jump?
20:40:18 sendkathy -> I think the baptism by fire is a team building experience
20:40:19 chris/student -> cool
20:40:20 doug -> you need some sort of aculturalization for this to keep working, I think
20:40:21 JasonR -> The painful learning.
20:40:22 Durff -> no wonder i can't get it
20:40:24 dc -> @Durff you need to log in
20:40:24 JasonR -> And the hazing.

20:41:37 Durff -> not to a survey
20:41:47 sendkathy -> yes, behind the scenes is very cool
20:42:01 derrallg -> I think webcast academy is more about community than learning tools

20:42:22 JenWagner -> I am a LIFE LONG ACADEMY LEARNER
20:42:23 doug -> intern for life

20:45:08 sendkathy -> I like knowing how to webcast but I'm not sure I can make a weekly commitment so what other roles can a member play?
20:45:10 cindy phthisic -> and a hush falls across the crowd
20:45:16 sendkathy -> aside from having a show
20:45:35 doug -> need some sleep b4 I commit to WCA, but might....
20:45:35 JM -> @jason ... is the logo done, yet?
20:45:43 JM -> how 'bout now?
20:45:45 pam shoemaker -> It's the best PD for me
20:45:59 sendkathy -> So jeff, do you think we could have a certification in distance learning

20:46:05 sendkathy -> from webcast academy
20:46:18 Lorna -> I agree Jedd for PD
20:46:20 sendkathy -> I think its a great idea and that is something I would like to work on
20:46:22 Lorna -> jeff
20:46:27 cindy phthisic -> it would work in my district
20:46:27 dgoodman -> @kathy I think being a guest on a show and bringing other guests in would be another part we play in the community
