Parents as Partners is joined by Superintendent of Falmouth Schools in Falmouth, MA, to discuss issues of parental inclusion and engagement. The PAP webcasting team would like to thank Dennis for taking time away from his busy schedule to join us for our final webcast of the 2007-2008 school year. Look for Parents as Partners to resume at the end of August or early September. Have a wonderful and restful next few months everyone!

Notes: Dennis referred to a few podcasts that he wanted to play during the show. Unfortunately we were not prepared to play these audio files during our webcast. However, both files are included in the audio file/podcast that is posted with this post. The files are at the end of the broadcast.

Chat Log: Dennis dropped in many useful links during the webcast. The entire chat log is inserted below. Feel free to peruse the chat log for the links that Dennis references.

2008-06-16 21:20:55 [Message] alicemercer -» -EdTechTalk: But do you think folks hear that as, OHoh, super is using it we'd "better use it"
2008-06-16 21:21:02 [Message] PeggyG -» -EdTechTalk: So are all of these sites open and unblocked for his teachers?
2008-06-16 21:22:50 [Message] Lisa Parisi -» -EdTechTalk: "better use it" means "really don't want to, dont get it, don't see the point, but..."
2008-06-16 21:25:01 [Message] alicemercer -» -EdTechTalk: Well, they use it to "learn" but not what we would like them to
2008-06-16 21:25:21 [Message] PeggyG -» -EdTechTalk: Does Dennis have a plan for introducing these web 2.0 tools to parents? Would love to hear
2008-06-16 21:25:56 [Message] PeggyG -» -EdTechTalk: Modeling use is a fantastic starting place both for teachers and parents

2008-06-16 21:26:13 [Message] Lisa Parisi -» -EdTechTalk: It's hard for parents to make the leap from playing games at home to learning with the same tools in school.
2008-06-16 21:26:35 [Message] PeggyG -» -EdTechTalk: Great point Lisa
2008-06-16 21:26:41 [Message] Lisa Parisi -» -EdTechTalk: Alice, I love that idea. Kim Cofino says she runs monthly (maybe weekly) parent teas.
2008-06-16 21:26:43 [Message] adinasullivan -» -EdTechTalk: There still an issue that students want to use tools for their own use - sometimes an ED use is seen as intruding on their territory.
2008-06-16 21:26:54 [Message] Mr. Shelhart -» -EdTechTalk: It seems that 'selling the sizzle instead of the steak' doesn't work with web 2.0. You really have to show what tech has to offer with real examples.
2008-06-16 21:27:54 [Message] PeggyG -» -EdTechTalk: @alicemercer Do you have students showing parents what they are learning through technology when they come to visit the lab?
2008-06-16 21:28:17 [Message] alicemercer -» -EdTechTalk: not yet
2008-06-16 21:28:38 [Message] alicemercer -» -EdTechTalk: adina, big issue
2008-06-16 21:28:40 [Message] Lisa Parisi -» -EdTechTalk: Peggy, I did that this year for American Education Week
2008-06-16 21:29:01 [Message] Lisa Parisi -» -EdTechTalk: Kids sat with their parents at a computer and showed what we had accomplished at that point in the year.
2008-06-16 21:29:04 [Message] alicemercer -» -EdTechTalk: I want to give them music, to use while doing writing, but so many sites have non-appropriate material
2008-06-16 21:29:14 [Message] sheila -» -EdTechTalk: @Lisa - good idead during Education week!
2008-06-16 21:29:19 [Message] PeggyG -» -EdTechTalk: @adinasullivan-that's a big challenge. Do you have any ideas about how to change that so students are willing to use those tools (like cell phones) for learning?
2008-06-16 21:29:29 [Message] Lisa Parisi -» -EdTechTalk: Easy for me and parents were very impressed
2008-06-16 21:29:41 [Message] Lisa Parisi -» -EdTechTalk: Alice, try aolradio...some good stations
2008-06-16 21:29:50 [Message] PeggyG -» -EdTechTalk: @Lisa Parisi-that is such a great idea! I'll bet the parents loved it!
2008-06-16 21:30:20 [Message] alicemercer -» -EdTechTalk: thank you!
2008-06-16 21:30:38 [Message] adinasullivan -» -EdTechTalk: I teach elementary, but I think some tools have to be used in an ED setting before they get to the High School level and develop the attitude that they know they tools better than we do.
2008-06-16 21:30:48 [Message] Lisa Parisi -» -EdTechTalk: Who wrote that blog about cell phone costs going up in a class using cell phones?
2008-06-16 21:30:48 [Message] PeggyG -» -EdTechTalk: Sometimes parents are interested and willing to get engaged if they can do it from home, online, without coming in to school.
2008-06-16 21:31:36 [Message] PeggyG -» -EdTechTalk: Probably Liz Davis??? she's done some awesome writing and thinking about cell phone use for education
2008-06-16 21:32:18 [Message] Lisa Parisi -» -EdTechTalk: I'm thinking Dean Shareski or Alec Couros. It was an interesting problem with using cell phones.
2008-06-16 21:32:41 [Message] PeggyG -» -EdTechTalk: I'll have to look for that. Would love to read it!
2008-06-16 21:34:14 [Message] PeggyG -» -EdTechTalk: Great idea though. Can use Soundflower app on a Mac to route iTunes sound

2008-06-16 21:35:58 [Message] PeggyG -» -EdTechTalk: That's such a great example how things like blogging can start with one teacher
2008-06-16 21:36:07 [Message] adinasullivan -» -EdTechTalk: Many are willing to do some of their own learning on the computer though, so that's positive
2008-06-16 21:36:12 [Message] alicemercer -» -EdTechTalk: Oh yeah
2008-06-16 21:36:24 [Message] alicemercer -» -EdTechTalk: I just wish the curriculum folks "got it".

2008-06-16 21:42:27 [Message] PeggyG -» -EdTechTalk: There are so many ways parents could learn about web 2.0 but it can be so overwhelming-Dennis is suggesting great ways to get them started with one thing at a time. The K12online conference is a great way to begin because you can select what you're interested in and listen in when it's convenient.
