2008-07-20 11:47:49 [Message] bcdtech/Maureen -> -EdTechTalk: I can do "cookbook math" give the recipe and I can follow it, but have to draw pictures to solve real problems
2008-07-20 11:48:05 [Message] bcdtech/Maureen -> -EdTechTalk: Kohn writes great stuff!

2008-07-20 11:50:29 [Message] Lisa Parisi -> -EdTechTalk: That would have helped me in hight school
2008-07-20 11:50:35 [Message] KarenJan -> -Webcast Academy: Alfie would say ask the student what they think about their work, we shouldn't add our own judgements
2008-07-20 11:50:39 [Message] bcdtech/Maureen -> -EdTechTalk: I did a few week long responsive classroom wrkshps- loved the language
2008-07-20 11:51:55 [Message] dancallahan -> -EdTechTalk: I get kids all the time who are addicted to praise like that.
2008-07-20 11:52:01 [Message] Lisa Parisi -> -EdTechTalk: Do you do the first six weeks of school, Maureen?
2008-07-20 11:52:43 [Message] bcdtech/Maureen -> -EdTechTalk: preK-2 do it, but responsive classroom is a PR piece for many in my school

2008-07-20 11:56:02 [Message] colleenk -> -EdTechTalk: All I say is "you're on the right track" or "you are so close".

2008-07-20 11:56:54 [Message] Kevinh -> -Webcast Academy: It's messy to really do an in depth evaluation of learning.

2008-07-20 11:57:21 [Message] KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: and also, Five Reasons to Stop Saying Good Job
2008-07-20 11:57:23 [Message] kmulford -> -EdTechTalk: Would have liked to have heard the end of Ginger's original thought -- before the dog issue... teachers do a great job of praise at school, but at home... ?
2008-07-20 11:57:23 [Message] colleenk -> -EdTechTalk: Karen, I am really looking forward to that.
2008-07-20 11:57:25 [Message] ds -> -Webcast Academy: clikc on Puentes al Mundo to join Jose and crew
2008-07-20 11:57:31 [Message] bcdtech/Maureen -> -EdTechTalk: I use rubrics for middle school- use abcd- and tell the kids they can shoot for whatever they want
2008-07-20 11:57:50 [Message] bcdtech/Maureen -> -EdTechTalk: I have big time grade grubbers
2008-07-20 11:57:51 [Message] kathycassidy -> -Webcast Academy: Effort marks should be separate from the mark on the work.  Some kids work very hard, but don't do as well and vice vera.
2008-07-20 11:57:54 [Message] Lisa Parisi -> -EdTechTalk: K- She was sayting that at home we don't always do the right thing
2008-07-20 11:57:59 [Message] GingerTPLC -> -EdTechTalk: @kmulford: they tend to just go back to being praise junkies
2008-07-20 11:58:02 [Message] KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: I tell my GRAD students, it will be very hard for them to NOT earn an A - different with grad students
2008-07-20 11:58:12 [Message] KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: Read Alfie's The Trouble With Rubrics
2008-07-20 11:58:26 [Message] kmulford -> -EdTechTalk: Hmmm. Interesting... have to think about that one.
2008-07-20 11:58:33 [Message] honeymic -> -Webcast Academy: Sometimes by the rubric I had to give a B/2 at my old school, and suddenly the kid hated their work which they had been very proud of.
2008-07-20 11:58:38 [Message] plivings -> -EdTechTalk: I tell my grad students they all begin with an A when they show up.  Show up every time, do thoughtful work, contribute, they keep the A.
2008-07-20 11:58:53 [Message] KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: why can't we do that with HS kids?
2008-07-20 11:59:00 [Message] GingerTPLC -> -EdTechTalk: We at TPLC are working on the LifePractice Model and try to mimic the real world.  Should we evaluate kids formally once a year? Like in a job?
2008-07-20 11:59:05 [Message] ds -> -Webcast Academy: these chat msgs aren't being seen by Maria and Lisa, and crew
2008-07-20 11:59:09 [Message] kmulford -> -EdTechTalk: @plivings I have always loved teachers with that approach.
2008-07-20 11:59:20 [Message] ds -> -Webcast Academy: need to move to EdTechTalk room to join "Conversations"
2008-07-20 11:59:26 [Message] honeymic -> -Webcast Academy: Am I in the wrong place?
2008-07-20 11:59:28 [Message] bcdtech/Maureen -> -EdTechTalk: my comments on the reports are long and at times say "I wish that Joe worried more about learning than grades"- I get in trouble.

2008-07-20 11:59:47 [Message] Kevinh -> -Webcast Academy: Methods of measurement work well on products that can be standardized like model T Fords or lawn mowers. This doesn't mean there shouldn't be criteria or expectations but I think they should be much more flexible.
2008-07-20 11:59:52 [Message] ds -> -Webcast Academy: to join that conversation
2008-07-20 11:59:53 [Message] honeymic -> -Webcast Academy: So why are people here?
2008-07-20 11:59:56 [Message] plivings -> -EdTechTalk: The grad students like it, too.  Of course K-12 isn't grad school plus all the people looking over your shoulder to see you are assessing enough.
2008-07-20 12:00:05 [Message] ds -> -Webcast Academy: Webcastacademy starts in one hour from now

2008-07-20 12:00:25 [Message] bcdtech/Maureen -> -EdTechTalk: If we worked more collaboratively on projects, wouldn't the kids be invested in making it better for the group?
2008-07-20 12:00:33 [Message] KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: when I graded my grad students final projects, i used the insert sound object feature and gave them audio feedback throughout their projects. Wish my kids teachers would do the same thing with them.

2008-07-20 12:00:46 [Message] dancallahan -> -EdTechTalk: @plivings on the other hand, that's the kind of soft stuff that leads to all of the talk about how teacher colleges are too easy on their students and don't do enough to adequately prepare them
2008-07-20 12:00:51 [Message] Kevinh -> -EdTechTalk: Was in the wrong room

2008-07-20 12:01:07 [Message] colleenk -> -EdTechTalk: @KarenJan That is so much more effective.
2008-07-20 12:01:16 [Message] dancallahan -> -EdTechTalk: my education classes were all too easy on me and my peers, in my opinion.
2008-07-20 12:01:28 [Message] plivings -> -EdTechTalk: dancallahan I still have standards and thoughtful contribution is the part that people start not doing deeply enough, plus something not showingup
2008-07-20 12:01:29 [Message] kathycassidy -> -Webcast Academy: Do you mean click on "conversation"?  It goes nowhere for me.
2008-07-20 12:01:30 [Message] honeymic -> -EdTechTalk: Hi, I've been hearing but was in the wrong room, so was bothering someone in the last room.

2008-07-20 12:01:45 [Message] kmulford -> -EdTechTalk: WOnder if could make that work at the middle school level -- the audio comments. Accessibility would be my first concern.

2008-07-20 12:02:06 [Message] KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: the conversation, sorry!
2008-07-20 12:02:11 [Message] bcdtech/Maureen -> -EdTechTalk: But even tho publish to perfection isn't a reality- don't we want to have a high bar? There is a difference bwtn classwork and a final project

2008-07-20 12:03:15 [Message] kmulford -> -EdTechTalk: I wonder, too... about "best effort" in EVERY class. DO you personally/professionally give EVERY aspect of your life your best effort?

2008-07-20 12:28:16 [Message] KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: @collenK & @cheryloakes LOL - the roles are reversed!
2008-07-20 12:28:29 [Message] colleenk -> -EdTechTalk: @KarenJan Exactly!
2008-07-20 12:28:34 [Message] cheryloakes ME -> -EdTechTalk: Hello Maureen, Lisa, Karen Jan, maureen, how is the garden?
2008-07-20 12:28:39 [Message] honeymic -> -EdTechTalk: @kmulford  That happened with my son.  He found his passion last year in debate and public speaking.
2008-07-20 12:28:40 [Message] congerjan -> -EdTechTalk: I hate that "using" your education.  My mother in law once introduced me as her daughter in law who went to xxx University and didn't use it.

2008-07-20 12:28:58 [Message] bcdtech/Maureen -> -EdTechTalk: @cheryl- the deer are being well fed ;)

2008-07-20 12:29:02 [Message] KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: if people want to continue these conversations, Alfie Kohn will be at the Constructing Modern KNowledge conference next week in NH

2008-07-20 12:29:14 [Message] congerjan -> -EdTechTalk: We use our education every day!!  Even if we are stay at home moms
2008-07-20 12:29:19 [Message] colleenk -> -EdTechTalk: @KarenJan Gary would be so proud :)
2008-07-20 12:29:25 [Message] honeymic -> -EdTechTalk: Well, my district doesn't pay well.  I never went into teaching for money and am very happy.
2008-07-20 12:29:27 [Message] KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: @congerjan - how did you feel about that????
2008-07-20 12:29:48 [Message] kmulford -> -EdTechTalk: @congerjan Ironic. My mother, who didn't raise me, always intro's me as her "Ivy League kid"... like I have nothing else to offer but a high-paid education (which she didn't contrib to)...
2008-07-20 12:29:50 [Message] cheryloakes ME -> -EdTechTalk: Oh, congerjan, that just is never true. Your were incubating.
2008-07-20 12:30:06 [Message] honeymic -> -EdTechTalk: But I can't say I recommend my brightest students to go into teaching.
2008-07-20 12:30:14 [Message] KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: @colleenk - i'm spreading the word because the opportunity to be in a smaller group with people like Alfie Kohn & Peter Reynolds and Sylvia Martinez is amazing

2008-07-20 12:30:39 [Message] Lisa Parisi -> -EdTechTalk: @kmulford  The one time my dad told me he was proud was when I received an acceptance letter from a university to teach a class..addressed to Professor Parisi
2008-07-20 12:30:42 [Message] congerjan -> -EdTechTalk: @KarenJan... I was not happy considering I was helping her grangchildren become the beautiful people they are now...
2008-07-20 12:30:53 [Message] colleenk -> -EdTechTalk: @KarenJan Absolutely. I feel very fortunate.
2008-07-20 12:30:57 [Message] MariaK -> -EdTechTalk: @karenJan - yes - invite the folks
2008-07-20 12:30:59 [Message] kmulford -> -EdTechTalk: Like you, I went into education. People who don't know me say "what a waste"
2008-07-20 12:31:12 [Message] cheryloakes ME -> -EdTechTalk: Smaller venues are great for deep conversations.
2008-07-20 12:31:19 [Message] kmulford -> -EdTechTalk: Wow, Lisa. The rest of us are proud of you all the time!

2008-07-20 12:31:53 [Message] congerjan -> -EdTechTalk: Now that I am a school librarian... yeah... I get ""what a waste""
2008-07-20 12:32:01 [Message] KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: @lparisi - does your Dad realize what a profound influence you are on so many, even those beyond your classroom?

2008-07-20 12:32:52 [Message] KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: @lparisi - can you reconnect with him and show him all the things YOU are proud of?
2008-07-20 12:33:04 [Message] kmulford -> -EdTechTalk: Ya. My dad (public HS teacher) had buttons popping off his shirt over the college thing. I do think it's cool that your dad said he was proud of you -- at least once. SOme ppl don't have that, even...
2008-07-20 12:33:17 [Message] Scott Shelhart -> -EdTechTalk: I quit 4 universities before I found my calling - Elementary teaching.
2008-07-20 12:33:43 [Message] KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: great to hear all this - my son just graduated from HS and still isn't sure what he will do in the fall
2008-07-20 12:33:59 [Message] GingerTPLC -> -EdTechTalk: We're all stronger for considering together!
2008-07-20 12:34:01 [Message] kmulford -> -EdTechTalk: @Scott Good thing you found it! How many students' lives have you impacted...
2008-07-20 12:34:06 [Message] KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: @lparisi - definitely reread Five Reasons To Stop Saying Good Job!

2008-07-20 12:35:10 [Message] Scott Shelhart -> -EdTechTalk: @BCDTech nothing better than getting paid for what you love.  It took me until the age of 40 to figure it out!
2008-07-20 12:35:11 [Message] GingerTPLC -> -EdTechTalk: I still have that FatBoySlim song stuck in my head: I want to praise you...
