21:20:55 [Message] glovely -> -EdTechTalk: does that make Barbara a "community organizer"?

21:21:02 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: yellow was a bit hard to read  :)

21:21:37 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: smiles -- you are special -- would you consider yourself ancient?  (smiles -- you have been around since the late 90's in tech too -- right)

21:22:38 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: no -- earlier than that -- I heard you first at Classroom Connect Conference

21:22:43 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: when did those end

21:23:02 [Message] glovely -> -EdTechTalk: @jenwagner - you talking about ME?

21:23:07 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: :)

21:23:12 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: sorry-- yes

21:23:26 [Message] glovely -> -EdTechTalk: I started in ed tech in 1982! - were you even born then?

21:23:33 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: sighs I was 12

21:23:50 [Message] glovely -> -EdTechTalk: I got my masters in ed computing in 1983

21:25:14 [Message] glovely -> -EdTechTalk: nope, I was a second grade teacher

21:25:18 [Message] ColetteC -> -EdTechTalk: the ecoach idea is great - we need someone there to guide us through using new technologies and projects

21:25:54 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: oh yeah, Barbara Bray...she was supposed to be on a few weeks back

21:25:59 [Message] glovely -> -EdTechTalk: Barbara, talk about how you offer online and f2f support...

21:26:07 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: see Gail -- you need to come and share what a degree in Ed Computing in 1983 was like on a future WOW2 show

21:27:10 [Message] cheri t -> -EdTechTalk: Virtual connectinos

21:27:13 [Message] cheri t -> -EdTechTalk: connections

21:27:13 [Message] glovely -> -EdTechTalk: sure, Jen.... we just need to make the date work!

21:27:22 [Message] JudiWolf -> -EdTechTalk: At first, cost for something on the Internet usually turns me off - but looking at this and the free option - this is worth millions!!

21:28:07 [Message] ColetteC -> -EdTechTalk: the personal contact is critical to supporting teachers

21:28:24 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk:

21:28:35 [Message] glovely -> -EdTechTalk: WHOO HOO - you go girl! Conquer LAUSD!

21:35:28 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: :)

21:37:16 [Message] JudiWolf -> -EdTechTalk: Wow! You have stories that should get out to everyone -educator and nonb-educator.

21:38:44 [Message] ColetteC -> -EdTechTalk: Is there any benefit to contributing to ecoach - besides the obvious of just sharing for the greater good

21:39:00 [Message] glovely -> -EdTechTalk: screaming at screen - HI BACK TO YOU!

21:39:11 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: creating an account

21:39:13 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk:

21:40:16 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: will ask in just a moment

21:40:20 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: sharon -- can you ask this

21:43:27 [Message] JudiWolf -> -EdTechTalk: This is such a wonderful resource. So glad I came here tonight.

21:45:06 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: me too

21:45:18 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: I knew I admired Barbara -- but admit I never went deep into the site

21:46:18 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: smiles -- several of us moved into Barbara's chat room

21:46:26 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: but I am back

21:46:39 [Message] JudiWolf -> -EdTechTalk: I am still not sure how you sign up kids for individual accounts.

21:49:49 [Message] ColetteC -> -EdTechTalk: @Judi - on the main site - click the 30-day free trial link in the main paragraph

21:51:01 [Message] JudiWolf -> -EdTechTalk: That is for us to sign up which i did - but, if I understand it right, there is no system yet in place for all of your students to have their own log in.

21:52:06 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: she is talking about that right now Judi

21:52:08 [Message] glovely -> -EdTechTalk: Judi, I think it is mostly for teachers to use

21:52:10 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: wait just 20 seconds

21:53:35 [Message] glovely -> -EdTechTalk: Sara was with GLEF, a long time leader of CUE

21:54:23 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk:

21:54:32 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: hmmm I think it .org

21:54:34 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: not come

21:54:36 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: com

21:54:39 [Message] JudiWolf -> -EdTechTalk: Thanks for the explanation - what you are working on would be great with students - the possibilities are endless.

21:54:51 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk:

21:54:56 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: it is .com

21:55:08 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: check Technospud if you want to see my presentations from LONG ago

21:55:09 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: :)

21:55:36 [Message] roxanne -> -EdTechTalk: You can use the Universal Builder to develop a whole unit of study and embed quizzes, surveys, comment boxes, videos, etc

21:55:47 [Message] glovely -> -EdTechTalk: Barbara re-state the costs again.

21:56:02 [Message] roxanne -> -EdTechTalk: and it posts online for access by everyone or you can make it private with a password

21:56:29 [Message] roxanne -> -EdTechTalk: Jen are you with discovery den?

21:57:17 [Message] glovely -> -EdTechTalk: Barbara is NOT a business person - this could be MUCH higher price

21:57:37 [Message] JudiWolf -> -EdTechTalk: I agree Gail - I think she needs me to be her agent!

21:58:06 [Message] glovely -> -EdTechTalk: we can thumb-wrestle for it!

21:58:44 [Message] JudiWolf -> -EdTechTalk: But, she is just one of those special people like jen wagner who give and give to us and we have got to love them.

21:58:47 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: :)

21:58:58 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: Roxanne -- I am a DEN

21:59:01 [Message] glovely -> -EdTechTalk: yes, Judi you are right!

21:59:02 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: but not a STAR

22:00:00 [Message] JudiWolf -> -EdTechTalk: I did not expect to stay for the hour as I have to get up early tomorrow - but this was wonderful!

22:00:01 [Message] ColetteC -> -EdTechTalk: once teachers get involved - are you looking for additional ecoaches from around the country for training and prof dev workshops?

22:00:45 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: Thanks Judi
