 21:13:53  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: I am under a rock, I don't even know what geocaching is
 21:14:18  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Hello Maria!
 21:14:25  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: geocaching.com explains it all - it is a hobby where geocachers use gps devices to find hidden treasures
 21:14:27  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: geocaching is a treasure hunt using GPSr
 21:14:29  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Hello Paul!
 21:14:32  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: http://sethgodin.typepad.com/
 21:14:44  paulrwood -> -EdTechTalk: Wazzup! Greetings to all
 21:14:50  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: @dgoodman Thanks
 21:15:02  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: HOw do kids use it?
 21:15:18  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: you're welcome
 21:15:25  Maria at BLC -> -EdTechTalk: all set now - we are sharing the plug!
 21:15:34  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: sharing is nice
 21:15:38  sheila a -> -EdTechTalk: togetherness!
 21:15:47  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: They can make the finds, they can track how often someone finds their hide, etc.
 21:15:57  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: who is with you Maria???
 21:16:03  debB -> -EdTechTalk: Me
 21:16:04  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: Oh, neat how the kids can hide something.
 21:16:15  bcdtech/Maureen -> -EdTechTalk: @jepecke our gym teacher does orienteering in the woods behind the school- she could use the geocaching with that
 21:16:17  Maria at BLC -> -EdTechTalk: That's what roomies are for.
 21:16:39  debB -> -EdTechTalk: They can also track items tht travel around the world
 21:16:39  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: There is a log book in the treasure/ cache for finders to sign
 21:16:48  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: I think I will learn a lot today. I will be able to get out from under the geocaching rock!
 21:16:49  Maria at BLC -> -EdTechTalk: @JenW Debbie Boisvert
 21:16:54  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: You leave it there when you leave, though
 21:17:01  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: I wish it was an actual prize
 21:17:04  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: :)
 21:17:23  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: there are trade items (swag) in larger caches
 21:17:35  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Mmm, swag
 21:17:38  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: http://groups.diigo.com/groups/geocaching_for_educators
 21:17:40  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Alright, fair enough
 21:17:54  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: I've never done it, but a friend has
 21:18:01  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Apparently it's rather invigorating
 21:18:12  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Hello Colette!
 21:18:15  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: some caches are virtaul in that the location is a treasure itself
 21:18:28  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: lots of fun
 21:18:29  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Ah, true
 21:18:31  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: introductions, geocache, how it is used in a classroom
 21:18:42  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: I wish geocaching.com would allow more virturals
 21:18:48  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: Thanks JEn
 21:18:52  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Haha
 21:18:57  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Has been made aware, I believe

 21:19:49  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: wow you started in 2001!
 21:19:55  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: paulrwood, that is awesome, Beth is a special educator and has some greaat stories to tell tonight
 21:20:32  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: Who was the blogger that went geocaching with his kids a few months ago -- they had pictures on the blog - and went biking on their cache
 21:20:35  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: anyone remember??
 21:21:01  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: Please remember to choose a COLOR -- far left icon -- looks like a color wheel
 21:21:04  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: wes fryer started goecaching with family and campiing
 21:21:06  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: on military bases they are scrambled
 21:21:22  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: hmmm -- don't think it was Wes -- the blogger had 2 kids -- I think sons??
 21:21:26  sheila a -> -EdTechTalk: Annette Lamb has been doing it for awhile
 21:21:30  Maria at BLC -> -EdTechTalk: I am purple tonight
 21:21:33  paulrwood -> -EdTechTalk: Wes has been talking about it a lot.  He enjoys it.
 21:21:36  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: I don't want to be caching on a military base, so that's ok
 21:21:41  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: I am going teal
 21:21:41  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Okay, fair enough
 21:21:48  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Woops, need a darker
 21:22:00  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: I was purple but now I'll be salmon pink
 21:22:10  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: I'll go alighter blue
 21:22:13  paulrwood -> -EdTechTalk: Wes has been talking about it a lot. He enjoys it. Try a new color
 21:22:29  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Here we go
 21:22:32  paulrwood -> -EdTechTalk: This is better
 21:22:38  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: Could it really be on a Military Base???  would they let you on??
 21:22:42  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: No
 21:22:56  bcdtech/Maureen -> -EdTechTalk: I like the cooperation piece!
 21:23:00  paulrwood -> -EdTechTalk: No Johnny leve the cone shaped object alone!
 21:23:02  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: Hi -- I am here to find a treasure -- just doesn't sound like I could get on a military base
 21:23:03  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: high tech treasure hunt=geocache
 21:23:13  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: @Jen W we are thinkgin alike tonight - I'll go baby blue
 21:23:13  misst2 -> -EdTechTalk: They don't let just anyone on the base here
 21:23:13  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: wonder if they use Google Earth??
 21:23:24  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Well yeah, but it might be more fun if it was more like a treasure hunt
 21:23:28  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: @dgoodman -- I will go Burnt Orange
 21:23:29  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: I love Maine
 21:23:40  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: google earth is good to put your coordinates of your caches in after your hunt and see your traack
 21:23:43  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: jepcke , we love Maine too.
 21:23:45  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: @gradster1 -- not to find it -- but to plot it when you are DONE
 21:23:48  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Like searching for clues, not the actual end point first
 21:23:56  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: I used it once to get an FTF (first to find) when my husband had the GPSr
 21:23:58  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: would be an interesting google earth if you went a lot of places
 21:24:06  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: Do any of you have phones with GPS????
 21:24:08  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: @JenW--CA What do you mean?
 21:24:10  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: yea
 21:24:17  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: you can geocache in Second Life too
 21:24:23  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: Is it like a race or just have as many people as possible find the 'treasure'?
 21:24:27  Maria at BLC -> -EdTechTalk: Jenw - you keep changing your colors.
 21:24:29  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: no way dBragg, way too cool
 21:24:48  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Many people
 21:24:48  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: @Gradster 1 --- if you were an active geocacher -- you could use Google Earth like your journal of your caches
 21:24:55  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: and what you found at each find
 21:24:57  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: oh wow DBragg, I can geocache in second life
 21:25:09  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Still not sure what you mean... but I will take your word for it
 21:25:09  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: @Maria -- I am now color content
 21:25:14  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: @JenW  GREAT idea
 21:25:23  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: That's where you go when the weather isn't cooperating
 21:25:26  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: @gradster1 -- have you used google earth where you can make a placemark??
 21:25:29  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: IS there something physically in the park? Or is it a virtual treasure?
 21:25:33  Maria at BLC -> -EdTechTalk: or maybe not jen...we'll see...
 21:25:34  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: you could even add a photo
 21:25:37  debB -> -EdTechTalk:   The geocaching website http://www.geocaching.com/
 21:25:39  paulrwood -> -EdTechTalk: Plot all your geocache points in Google earth to map where you have been and geo-cached
 21:25:55  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: @Paulrwood -- Yep -- that is what I was trying to convey -- but guess I didn't do well
 21:26:03  KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: Hi, everyone!
 21:26:09  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: Hey Karen Jan -- how is BOSTON???
 21:26:16  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: I miss not being there!!!!

 21:26:35  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: I'm trying a different color
 21:26:46  KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: met Darren & Clarence tonight - they are WONDERFUL
 21:26:50  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: So is the subject tonight geocaching?
 21:26:55  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: Darren K and Clarence F???
 21:26:55  loonyhiker -> -EdTechTalk: i have a gps but i don't know where to start to do geocache
 21:26:56  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: we used GPS devices with teachers and hid animal tracks and signs around a college campus to show an educational use of gps/geocaching - they had to identify the aniaml the the traack/sign belonged to
 21:26:57  paulrwood -> -EdTechTalk: Had to decide between Alan November and Gary Stager and I chose Stager this year.
 21:27:02  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: and Ewan is there too
 21:27:04  KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: @jen YES!
 21:27:06  KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: yes
 21:27:07  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: @loonyhiker Google.
 21:27:13  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: Karen Jan, did you see my post at techlearning?
 21:27:20  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: I thought Stager was in Tennessee at Lausanne -- but I guess I ws wrong
 21:27:26  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: start with geocaching.com
 21:27:31  loonyhiker -> -EdTechTalk: okay.

 21:28:47  paulrwood -> -EdTechTalk: @woscholar is also going
 21:28:51  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: we also used gps devices to mark various trees - particpants had to take various measurements of dif trees- circumference, board feet, heigth, width and so on
 21:28:53  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: I'd say that'd be good - I did it once, and that worked
 21:29:00  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: @paulrwood -- going where????

 21:29:59  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: I have used Garmin eTrex and Garmin H as well as Magellan eXplorist
 21:30:08  Maria at BLC -> -EdTechTalk: There is still room for ayone in the Stager Conference
 21:30:10  paulrwood -> -EdTechTalk: @wochholar and I will arrive Saturday night we are going to the museum on Sunday for that trip
 21:30:11  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: Please remember all the links from tonight will be at http://del.icio.us/WOW2.0/wow2_20080715
 21:30:14  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: will be asking your questions. send them along
 21:30:17  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: Kathy Cassidy -- HELLO!!!!
 21:30:21  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: @gradster  why mark trees?
 21:30:34  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: Hi Kathy Cassidy are you at blc?
 21:30:35  Maria at BLC -> -EdTechTalk: hey there, Kathy Cassidy.
 21:30:46  kathycassidy -> -EdTechTalk: Hi all
 21:30:50  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: KathyCassidy will be a guest on WOW in August!!!!
 21:30:52  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: You have to read the description, name and maybe the hints to help you find it
 21:31:04  kathycassidy -> -EdTechTalk: Actually I think it is September.
 21:31:13  Maria at BLC -> -EdTechTalk: Kathy is my idol!
 21:31:20  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: HOw many points are in a typical Geocache hunt?
 21:31:21  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: @dgoodman No, why take measurements and such?
 21:31:36  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: I sent photos of rocks to her blog a couple years ago@kathycassidy
 21:31:59  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: usually one point, but there are multi caches that have several stages
 21:32:06  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: @dgoodman It sounds like grunt/bell work. Immediate turnoff for me - there's no end point, and no result.
 21:32:13  kathycassidy -> -EdTechTalk: We loved those pics of your jewelry.  My kids were so excited.
 21:32:24  debB -> -EdTechTalk: @jepcke usually there are only one but some have many
 21:32:26  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: it was fun to make a connection
 21:32:29  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: to demonstrate how those measurments are calculated- board feet tell you how muc money a tree might bring in, or where it might hit if it fell
 21:32:47  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: So the kids get the lat/long and have to figure out where that is?
 21:33:21  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: @dgoodman But what's the point? Is it a class on forestry or something?
 21:33:27  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: we see how old the tree is and identify times of drought/ possible diesease etc
 21:33:31  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: If it's a math class I don't see the purpose
 21:33:42  colettec -> -EdTechTalk: The EarthCache website is great for locating local earth landforms:  http://www.geosociety.org/earthcache/intro.htm
 21:33:55  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: my garmin 60csx has the buttons on the bottom
 21:34:02  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Sorry if I'm being a bit too aggressive, it's just that I've had MANY bad experiences with teachers assigning grunt work just to get me out of the way.
 21:34:06  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: @gradster1 --- hmmm latitude and longitude coordinates are not math options???
 21:34:08  sheila a -> -EdTechTalk: http://www.ryejrhigh.org/workshops/gps/
 21:34:24  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: it was actually a workshop introducing them to the new Dismal Swam eucatrional classroom
 21:34:25  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: Thanks Jen. I'm still not being able to conceptualize this.
 21:34:34  debB -> -EdTechTalk: @jepcke you go on to the geocaching website and get the lngitude and latitude
 21:34:42  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: Is there a diffferent kind of GPS than those in the car?
 21:34:44  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: http://weskids.com/01media/geocaching/video.html   here is a movie about beth goodwin taking her students out to geocache.
 21:34:47  paulrwood -> -EdTechTalk: I could see it being like plotting coordinates on a graph. You correct and project
 21:34:57  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: No, @JenW--CA - 1. Not really, and 2. @dgoodman was talking about measuring trees and doing stuff after finding the trees et cetera.
 21:34:58  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: I think as teachers -- personally as a teacher -- I could use geocaching in a bunch of ways -- math, language, science, and more!!!
 21:35:14  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: ahhh @gradster1 -- sorry, I missed the full conversation.....
 21:35:22  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: @JenW--CA How Languages?
 21:35:29  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: What grade do you teach @Gradster1??
 21:35:31  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: @JenW  I have used them in many more ways  just highlighting a recent workshop
 21:35:32  paulrwood -> -EdTechTalk: Our GIS students did tree surveys for the City of Dallas with GPS and measuring because of the laws on tree removal
 21:35:38  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: I can see the great curriculum connections, just not getting the procedure. The links are helping
 21:35:49  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: @gradster -- language as in language skills:  writing, journalling, spelling, etc
 21:35:53  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: describing your experience - logging your cache hunts
 21:35:59  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: http://voicethread.com/#q.b144645.i767015  here is Beth's voice thread showing how to geocache, the kids explain.
 21:36:19  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Haha, I am very pleased. I am a student.
 21:36:37  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: @JenW--CA But how would you use geocaching?
 21:37:07  misst2 -> -EdTechTalk: Anyone done this with lower grade students?
 21:37:09  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: @gradster1 -- I really am not sure yet -- still new ideas here....but it sounds like it could be used in a lot of creative ways.
 21:37:15  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: I work with K6
 21:37:22  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: so still looking at options -- but it would not just be "
 21:37:27  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: GO FIND THE TREASURE
 21:37:36  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: i would make it much more than that
 21:37:48  KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: thanks for the links cheryl
 21:37:53  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: remember this will be a podcast this weekend and the chat will be availabe. I am headed to BLC at 5 AM, so not editing tomorrow.
 21:37:55  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: but it could be a very fun day away from class
 21:38:02  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: and learning too!!!
 21:38:10  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: I teach Parenting, so I describe it as a group family activity
 21:38:15  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: @JenW--CA What made you think I was an educator?
 21:38:21  bcdtech/Maureen -> -EdTechTalk: I would love to use it with my middle school kids just to teach cooperation/collaboration skills- which they lack.
 21:38:39  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: Maureen it will be a good thing
 21:38:42  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: @gradster1 -- Your name -- your comments -- your conversation -- your questions
 21:38:59  KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: @bcdtech - love how you used glogster with your wiki - it looks beautiful
 21:39:08  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: team work is a must
 21:39:27  bcdtech/Maureen -> -EdTechTalk: @KarenJan- Thanks love to steal ideas!
 21:39:27  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: @cheryl The links are great. Thank you!
 21:39:28  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: Anyone else do GEOCACHE at NECC San Diego -- besides me??
 21:39:30  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: @JenW--CA Thank you! I'm in the middle of a sort of impromptu experiment.
 21:39:34  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: it is such a good cooperative activity
 21:39:44  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: @gradster1 -- are we part of the experiment???
 21:39:45  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: anyone listen to geocaching podcasts?  podcacher.com is great
 21:39:47  paulrwood -> -EdTechTalk: I saw you folks walking around but I didn't participate
 21:39:52  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: @cheryl yes it is
 21:40:02  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: @JenW--CA Yes?
 21:40:14  sheila a -> -EdTechTalk: @dbragg - i listen to it from time to time
 21:40:18  KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: @Maureen - you made it distinctly yours!
 21:40:18  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: @gradster1 -- smiles, that's okay.  I don't mind being a guinea pig -- :)
 21:40:31  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: just don't set me up !!   :)
 21:40:32  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: geocache rules of of the road
 21:40:52  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: @JenW--CA Honestly I didn't really realize I was performing one until now.
 21:40:59  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Thus the impromptu part.
 21:41:04  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: ahhhhhhh
 21:41:17  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: But I totally am.
 21:41:18  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: so did I call you out -- and ruin the experiment??
 21:41:23  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: geocachers are all about protcting the environment-many times you;ll see them with trash bags - trash in cache out
 21:41:24  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: I had a cache that was muggled and there was a TB in it - I feel horrible
 21:41:30  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Slightly, but making me realize it is good.
 21:41:46  KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: @dbragg - what does that mean
 21:41:50  bcdtech/Maureen -> -EdTechTalk: What's a TB?
 21:41:54  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: DBragg -- please explain
 21:41:58  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: thanks
 21:42:10  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: I should have realized it faster and said that I'd prefer not to say, but I was slow on the uptake.
 21:42:12  loonyhiker -> -EdTechTalk: sounds like i will have to learn new vocab with this
 21:42:14  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: muggles are people that don't know about Geocaching - so someone destroyed my cache
 21:42:17  bcdtech/Maureen -> -EdTechTalk: is it a terrible bug?
 21:42:29  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Travel Bug, I'm assuming
 21:42:40  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: @gradster yes
 21:42:50  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Score :)
 21:43:10  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: Isn't this just the best? Such great ideas for summer then school.
 21:43:16  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: actually HONESTY @gradster1 is a very admired trait   :)
 21:43:31  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: Yes Travel Bug, it has a unique id on it. They move from cache to cache
 21:43:32  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: check out a geocache from a library!!!
 21:43:38  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: @JenW--CA Well yes, but in the name of science all sorts of things are acceptable.
 21:43:57  colettec -> -EdTechTalk: The Degree Confluence Project takes photos at latitude/longitude integer degree locations and then upload them to this site and people submit information about these location:  http://www.confluence.org/index.php
 21:44:00  paulrwood -> -EdTechTalk: @gradster1 that sounds more like politics
 21:44:25  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: I know of pre-schools that do it with their families
 21:44:29  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: http://weskids.com/01media/geocaching/video.html  here is the video from Beth's group
 21:44:30  loonyhiker -> -EdTechTalk: wow, including families that sounds so great
 21:44:32  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: pre-schoolers
 21:44:39  colettec -> -EdTechTalk: Geocaching is a great family activity
 21:44:42  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: nah -- honesty never goes out of style   :)
 21:44:47  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: @JenW--CA Only now am I realizing that most of the experiment is on myself. I am indirectly seeing how mature I am.
 21:44:51  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: We hav e a friend who geocaches with his 4th graders at recess.
 21:44:55  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: how about an amazing race to review math skills from cache to cache
 21:44:57  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: When you say "There is a geocache across from my school" What does that mean? A treasure is hidden across from your school?
 21:45:34  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: So you would post a 'geocache' on the geocache website?
 21:45:37  sheila a -> -EdTechTalk: in the town forest across the street. A former student created it.
 21:45:40  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: @JenW--CA I seem to have gotten your attention, anyway - what is this? Durff clued me in, if you know her, but I am puzzled.
 21:45:42  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: a geocache could be a container with items to trade or just a journal to sign saying you were there
 21:46:10  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: Or you could just do a geocache with your class and not post it?
 21:46:21  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: @http://www.practicalprincipals.net/http://www.practicalprincipals.net/http://www.practicalprincipals.net/ -- that I saw your name???  just because you asked a ????   I look for those when I watch the chat
 21:46:41  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: This is so good.
 21:46:56  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: I know Lisa Durff --- but what is what??  this weekly chat??? 
 21:47:25  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: @jepecke -- I think that is what she meant  -- that there is a treasure box across from her school
 21:47:29  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Yes, this. This is weekly?
 21:47:31  misst2 -> -EdTechTalk: Do you have to get permission to place your cache?
 21:47:38  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Women of WEB means what?
 21:47:38  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: I put postcards from the town I live in to share a litle history of my town with others - it might encourage them to visit
 21:48:00  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: dgoodman, great idea!
 21:48:09  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: @misst2 Good question
 21:48:11  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: @gradster1 --- pretty much for the last 80 weeks.......
 21:48:14  Maria at BLC -> -EdTechTalk: hmmmm ....who is gradster1 - any friend of durff can be my friend too. do i know you?
 21:48:19  colettec -> -EdTechTalk: Local history/primary source CSI Investigators WebQuest that uses GPS devices at http://www.csiwebquest.org/
 21:48:24  Maria at BLC -> -EdTechTalk: hey alice!
 21:48:27  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: hi alicebarr
 21:48:38  alicebarr -> -EdTechTalk: HI cheryl
 21:48:43  alicebarr -> -EdTechTalk: Hi MAria
 21:48:49  bcdtech/Maureen -> -EdTechTalk: Hi Alice
 21:48:49  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: how is blc , alice and maria
 21:48:59  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: Thx Jen. Ur the best
 21:49:00  alicebarr -> -EdTechTalk: Hi Maureen
 21:49:07  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: folks are also marking benchmarks - be the first to mark one in your area
 21:49:11  alicebarr -> -EdTechTalk: @Cheryl SO far so good
 21:49:22  Maria at BLC -> -EdTechTalk: I loved the Scratch session!
 21:49:25  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: mark means to get the coordinates of that spot
 21:49:28  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: @Maria at BLC I doubt it. I have been completely out of it for a while. I participated in WNF one year the year David Warlick keynoted, but since the whole Students 2.0 scandal I have not been involved
 21:49:44  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: I bet that was so fun, @Maria, scratch.org
 21:49:54  bcdtech/Maureen -> -EdTechTalk: @Maria So it was better than we heard the other day?
 21:49:56  alicebarr -> -EdTechTalk: @MAria I saw you talking about it, but didn't get over to you
 21:50:02  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: @Maria ILOVE SCRATCH!!
 21:50:13  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: @JenW--CA Actually, people tend to ignore me without even knowing I'm an educatee because they don't know me.
 21:50:17  colettec -> -EdTechTalk: GPS in Education Resources:  http://www.gis2gps.com/GPS/gps.html
 21:50:20  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: It is hard to watch the chat -- but glad I saw your ??? @jpecke
 21:50:36  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: @gradster1 -- LOL< you don't know me.   I am the friendly one!!   :)
 21:50:50  sheila a -> -EdTechTalk: travel bugs http://www.ryejrhigh.org/workshops/gps/tb.htm
 21:50:55  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: How fun for kids! "Treasure hunts" at school!
 21:51:01  Maria at BLC -> -EdTechTalk: Yes, Maureen - It was great - I loved the lifelong kindergarten space-media lab.
 21:51:19  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: @JenW--CA Great! Glad to have talked to you!
 21:51:20  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: hello susan, this is geocache stories tonight
 21:51:27  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: @gradster1 -- you too
 21:51:30  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: are you are blogger??
 21:51:36  bcdtech/Maureen -> -EdTechTalk: @Maria- was there a big sandbox? Did you get to play?
 21:51:43  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: Are these just regular GPS units used in cars or are they different than those for cars?
 21:51:46  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: Bonnine louisiana, hope this has been informative for you.
 21:51:48  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: @JenW--CA Let's just say yes.
 21:52:11  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: @gradster1 -- LOL -- you can email me later at jenuinetech (at) gmail (dot) com if you want to share it with me  :)
 21:52:19  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: or not -- tis up to you!!
 21:52:20  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: @Jen Tonight you are doing a human 'geocache' I think
 21:52:26  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: One of the caches here in PA has a video exchange
 21:52:42  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: @jepcke -- LOL -- perhaps!!!  finding the treasures in us all
 21:52:43  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: cool DBragg, that is very neat.
 21:52:48  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: I found one hidden in a crevice at an ATM machine - it was in a perfume sample conatiner - very micro - just a journal to sign-should have seen the looks
 21:53:05  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: I have dogs that I have used as an excuse many times
 21:53:07  bonnine louisiana -> -EdTechTalk: this is a great application of some real life geocaching in education.
 21:53:16  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: has anyone found anything in geocahching = please share!!!!
 21:53:23  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: @JenW--CA Long story: I used to be a blogger, then I stopped, then I tried to start again with more focus, then I stopped, and now I have resolved to try again - but I'm probably going to stop.
 21:53:30  colettec -> -EdTechTalk: A great integration with Literature is to pick a travel bug from the geocaching website and then write the "adventures" of that travel bug and the locations it goes and what it sees along the way (fiction) and maybe track it on Google Maps
 21:53:50  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: hello Wendy, welcome
 21:53:51  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: Great idea colettec
 21:53:56  nancykeane -> -EdTechTalk: crawling out from under the rock
 21:54:01  paulrwood -> -EdTechTalk: Hello @Wendy Drexler
 21:54:03  loonyhiker -> -EdTechTalk: great story
 21:54:07  bcdtech/Maureen -> -EdTechTalk: @colettec - sounds like Flat Stanley on steroids
 21:54:14  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: Loonyhike, this sounds so like you!
 21:54:26  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: I too have conducted many trainings with educators on geocaching and comments are always the best workshop I've attended etc
 21:54:30  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: @nancykeane ME too!
 21:54:31  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: @gradster1 -- Understood -- I just took a sabbatical from twitter, then came back ---
 21:54:32  colettec -> -EdTechTalk: Same idea as Flat Stanley
 21:54:34  nancykeane -> -EdTechTalk: Is this what the kids were doing in the beginning of Doctorow's Little Brother?
 21:54:36  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: SACRILEGE :)
 21:54:37  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: There are caching events too
 21:54:42  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: HA!!!  Yep
 21:54:44  Wendy Drexler -> -EdTechTalk: Hi Cheryl and Paul.  I LOVE geocaching.  Want to use in my Human Geo class next year.
 21:54:59  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: that sounds great Wendy!
 21:55:15  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: @Wendy  Human Geo class?? explain please
 21:55:51  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: I download my files to a web page that tracks my numbers by difficulty and terrain
 21:55:53  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: @Wendy  read it again and now understand - sorry
 21:56:26  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: @Wendy  your kids will love it
 21:56:36  sheila a -> -EdTechTalk: Additional curriculum piece - travel bugs.
 21:56:41  Wendy Drexler -> -EdTechTalk: No Problem - Geography, sorry
 21:56:43  sheila a -> -EdTechTalk: http://www.ryejrhigh.org/workshops/gps/tb.htm
 21:56:59  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: cool idea
 21:57:03  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: Sounds like it would be a summer school class or after school club. That's often my 'guinea pig' way of trying things kinds of thing.
 21:57:16  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: good for community awareness too
 21:57:19  KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: this has been fascinating - learned a great deal, love the links
 21:57:36  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: QUESTION for the talking people?
 21:57:41  sheila a -> -EdTechTalk: WOW2 has its own website - http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?id=903406
 21:57:48  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Has anyone ever done geochaching games?
 21:57:51  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: nearly then end of the show!
 21:57:53  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: you can buy camoflaug tape at Walmart for your tuppeware containers
 21:57:59  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: I can't quite remember what they're called.
 21:58:19  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: Hi Durff!
 21:58:23  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: BJust ask me if you're going to use it - DURFF!
 21:58:25  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: hi Durff
 21:58:25  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Hello!
 21:58:27  paulrwood -> -EdTechTalk: @mrsdurff Where have you been?
 21:58:31  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: I don't understand this 'travel bug' thing.
 21:58:39  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: i was in another mtg
 21:58:49  bcdtech/Maureen -> -EdTechTalk: Hi Durff- still have the wrinkles, despite putting on the new glasses
 21:58:56  Maria at BLC -> -EdTechTalk: Cab
 21:58:57  paulrwood -> -EdTechTalk: @mrsdurff I thought you could bi and tri locate
 21:59:04  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: Not with this
 21:59:10  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: good for you, this will be a podcast but not until the weekend, I am headed to BLC in the morning.
 21:59:10  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: i guess not
 21:59:12  gradster1 -> -EdTechTalk: When you move off the page, it logs you out.
 21:59:28  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: CAB
 21:59:54  KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: @cheryl - can't wait!
 21:59:54  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: FF froze - here in Safari
 22:00:05  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: I have started a geocaching_for_educators group on Diigo-feel free to add links
 22:00:10  Maria at BLC -> -EdTechTalk: We had a great experience with a geocache that is on our school property.
 22:00:11  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: @durff FF was wonky for me too
 22:00:15  paulrwood -> -EdTechTalk: IS FF3 worth it?
 22:00:18  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: @jepcke look at the geocaching web page for the dog tags.  The tags have a unique "number"
 22:00:20  cheryloakes wow2 -> -EdTechTalk: please give the Diigo link.
 22:00:30  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: @paul I'd stay away form FF3
 22:00:44  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: i have FF2
 22:00:52  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: And the 'tags' move form place to place?
 22:00:55  paulrwood -> -EdTechTalk: I may get in trouble here but  have never used FF
 22:01:00  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: @paulrwood -- I finally went to FF3 and am 85% happy with it
 22:01:04  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: @jepeck You put the travel bug in a cache and another cacher comes along, picks it up and moves it to another cache
 22:01:09  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: sorry -- I lost the chat room for a bit
 22:01:12  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: FF2 is much better in my opinion
 22:01:23  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: couldn't type
 22:01:23  bcdtech/Maureen -> -EdTechTalk: @JenW- like FF3, but not all the addins work
 22:01:31  jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: @dbragg got it. Like Flat Stanley
 22:01:40  JenW--CA -> -EdTechTalk: @bcdtech -- yep #1 thing I don't lik -- I lost a lot of add ins
 22:01:41  dgoodman -> -EdTechTalk: http://groups.diigo.com/groups/geocaching_for_educators
 22:01:48  misst2 -> -EdTechTalk: I've had no problems with FF3
 22:01:50  DBragg -> -EdTechTalk: @jepeck they log the movement of the traveler so you can see it's movement
