2009-04-30 21:07:28 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: Will tell Liz! :)
2009-04-30 21:07:51 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: Nothing. How can we? Students have few computers and little internet access at home
2009-04-30 21:08:20 [Message] alicebarr -> -EdTechTalk: @alicemercer Seedlings done podcast will be up shortly at http://bobsprankle.com
2009-04-30 21:08:27 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: I'm trying to figure out what we could do short of phone conf
2009-04-30 21:08:38 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: Oh, lots of Whopping Cough outbreaks. that is NASTY
2009-04-30 21:08:43 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: please skype if you want to join in 
2009-04-30 21:08:44 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: we now have 5 cases of swine flu in Phoenix and more schools closing
2009-04-30 21:08:46 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: mjmonty
2009-04-30 21:08:49 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: We are still on vacation this week. Will be interesting to see what happens on Monday.
2009-04-30 21:08:51 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: Had one here last year in various spots
2009-04-30 21:11:20 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: And the vaccine wears out...
2009-04-30 21:11:50 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: There is a live chat on EdWeek tomorrow (3:00pmEastern) on school plan and respond to swine flue. Should be interesting.
2009-04-30 21:14:28 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: H.S. in silicon valley
2009-04-30 21:14:33 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: the school nurse seems to be such an important person in the process and so many schools have eliminated the nurse position due to budget cuts
2009-04-30 21:14:34 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: Swine Break!
2009-04-30 21:15:01 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: One week at least
2009-04-30 21:15:17 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: We don't have snow days in California either
2009-04-30 21:15:30 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: Or how about release, and pay dock to save money?
2009-04-30 21:15:32 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: We've had 6 days due to snow already that we have to make up. 
2009-04-30 21:15:39 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: I bet they try to have us furlough, lol
2009-04-30 21:15:48 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: to save money
2009-04-30 21:15:55 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I understand that Obama is recommending that schools with confirmed cases of swine flu close temporarily.
2009-04-30 21:16:07 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: Yeah, snow days don't exist here except in Sierra
2009-04-30 21:16:17 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: I have to go.
2009-04-30 21:16:22 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: IN a bit
2009-04-30 21:16:25 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: so I can't
2009-04-30 21:16:31 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: sorry, not right now.
2009-04-30 21:16:44 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: But what does someone at a high poverty low cpu school?
2009-04-30 21:16:46 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: there seem to be different considerations for alternatives for short and long term
2009-04-30 21:16:55 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: We need outside the box ideas?
2009-04-30 21:16:55 [Message] derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: hey everyone
2009-04-30 21:17:09 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: Hi Derrall
2009-04-30 21:17:11 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: Cell phones (lots of those)? Periodic conference calls?
2009-04-30 21:17:22 [Message] derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: hi Sheila
2009-04-30 21:17:25 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @alice-is virtual learning an outside the box idea?
2009-04-30 21:17:37 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: It is when the homes don't have computers Peggy
2009-04-30 21:17:43 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: And they don't or don't have internet
2009-04-30 21:18:04 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: Only 50% have computers, and 1/3 are broken, and 1/3 don't have internet at a reasonable speed
2009-04-30 21:18:29 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: does it defeat the purpose of not being exposed to it if they go to the library when school is closed?
2009-04-30 21:18:30 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: I used to do a hw conf mtg with Vyew, and would only get 3 or 5 out of 33 students
2009-04-30 21:18:38 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: Peggy, that would be closed.
2009-04-30 21:18:39 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: http://castillejatech.wikispaces.com/Virtual+Instructional+Tool-Kit
2009-04-30 21:18:41 [Message] derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: @alice I guess virtual learning only by phone then
2009-04-30 21:18:42 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: They do have cell phones though
2009-04-30 21:18:53 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: So I'm thinking about that...
2009-04-30 21:18:59 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: I should ask Liz Kolb, lol
2009-04-30 21:19:05 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: Nice song
2009-04-30 21:19:05 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: in Phoenix it's the individual school that is closed--not everything
2009-04-30 21:19:05 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: I sent that out to our faculty today...so they could be somewhat prepared to teach virtually
2009-04-30 21:19:17 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: It'll just be school here. 
2009-04-30 21:19:24 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: One private Catholic school was closed 
2009-04-30 21:19:45 [Message] alicemercer -> -EdTechTalk: Well, it's exit time for me! Thanks guys!
2009-04-30 21:19:53 [Message] derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: bye Alice
2009-04-30 21:20:03 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: @Matt - is your school a boarding school?
2009-04-30 21:20:07 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: Sunrise on CCmixter.org if you want to download the song
2009-04-30 21:20:12 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: @sheila...no, we're not
2009-04-30 21:20:25 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: can you repost that link? browser crashed :-(
2009-04-30 21:20:59 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @matt-the virtual school link??
2009-04-30 21:21:13 [Message] derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: http://castillejatech.wikispaces.com/Virtual+Instructional+Tool-Kit
2009-04-30 21:21:25 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: thanks!
2009-04-30 21:22:27 [Message] jstone_sf -> -EdTechTalk: Thanks for the reference page link, Matt
2009-04-30 21:22:30 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: that sounds really exciting Matt! will look forward to hearing about it on Gator Radio!
2009-04-30 21:22:56 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: my computer isn't cooperating!! sorry!
2009-04-30 21:22:59 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: yes, I'd like to hear that!
2009-04-30 21:23:50 [Message] jstone_sf -> -EdTechTalk: jstone=Jason  if it matters!
2009-04-30 21:23:56 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: this morning we talked about the kinds of issues that resulted from Katrina with no electricity and relocations
2009-04-30 21:24:13 [Message] derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: I'll talk on skype if you want matt
2009-04-30 21:24:24 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: Go Derrall!
2009-04-30 21:24:38 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: yeah Darrell!
2009-04-30 21:25:27 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: great sense of humor!
2009-04-30 21:25:40 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Texas closed schools just as testing was beginning
2009-04-30 21:26:20 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: love it! wash, wash, wash your hands :-)
2009-04-30 21:27:00 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: even if the learning can continue virtually I doubt the state would count those as school days/hours and they would still need to be made up
2009-04-30 21:27:39 [Message] jstone_sf -> -EdTechTalk: I find it amusing (sad?) that everyone NOW wants to talk about getting going on Moodle at my school!
2009-04-30 21:27:45 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: that's a great idea to create ustreams and tutorials as study guides
2009-04-30 21:28:08 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: take advantage of the teachable moment @jstone :-)
2009-04-30 21:28:34 [Message] jstone_sf -> -EdTechTalk: You know it!  I already have a big group signed up for a summer session on Moodle, but I think that number is about to go up...
2009-04-30 21:28:39 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: @Jstone_sf - I'm sure! It will be interesting to see how our staff reacts on MOnday.
2009-04-30 21:28:59 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: Can anyone help. When I click on the stream, I get a Windows Media Player message that I'm running low on memory. I just restarted the computer. Went to the link they gave me, and all I got was this message:[i]You've encountered error message C00D11C6 while using Windows Media Player. Additional information is not currently available for this error.[/i]
2009-04-30 21:29:21 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: I think he is only using ustream
2009-04-30 21:29:36 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @carolteach4--can you listen on ETT-A stream--ustream requires more bandwidth for me
2009-04-30 21:30:29 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: @Peggy. Thanks. I'm still learning. That worked. I can hear fine now!
2009-04-30 21:30:31 [Message] jstone_sf -> -EdTechTalk: Brilliant!
2009-04-30 21:31:04 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: never thought about continuing to pay teachers for the virtual learning to continue--that makes so much sense!
2009-04-30 21:31:35 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: and now you can teach with the google maps and the spread of the flu.
2009-04-30 21:32:07 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: in our letigious society I think schools have to be so careful with decisions like this--if someone should die from the flu...
2009-04-30 21:32:42 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: lowered immune systems, etc. It is a concern.
2009-04-30 21:33:03 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: yes, that google map was shared on Seedlings--fascinating!
2009-04-30 21:33:53 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: My mom has been living with a lowered immune system too. I'm concerned.
2009-04-30 21:34:00 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: Hey ds!
2009-04-30 21:34:43 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: Hey Cheryl!
2009-04-30 21:34:50 [Message] jstone_sf -> -EdTechTalk: Any thoughts of ways to use low-tech solutions for keeping in touch with students? Maybe a voicemail box that kids call in to each day to at least *feel* in touch?...   I'm especially thinking about 'the little ones'... my school is K-8.
2009-04-30 21:34:59 [Message] cheryloakes -> -EdTechTalk: hey, shelia
2009-04-30 21:35:20 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: great question jstone! those connections are so important--beyond homework packets
2009-04-30 21:37:44 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: http://www.edweek.org/ew/events/chats/2009/05/01/index.html#chat this is the link for the live chat tomorrow on EducationWeek (3:00pm Eastern) discussing these issues for helping schools plan and respond
2009-04-30 21:38:09 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: Wonder if many schools have a phone alert system now?
2009-04-30 21:38:33 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: Radio! Great idea
2009-04-30 21:38:55 [Message] jstone_sf -> -EdTechTalk: @SheilaA  My school (San Francisco Day School) does have a phone alert system. We always thought it would be an earthquake...
2009-04-30 21:39:33 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: those outdial services can work very well especially when a teacher sends out a call to everyone in his/her class--personal connection rather than just an announcement
2009-04-30 21:39:35 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: Well, let's hope it's not used for either, Jason!
2009-04-30 21:40:25 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: like the idea of a community chat room
2009-04-30 21:40:49 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: Jason, you got me thinking about centralizing information on the school's website and then branch out from there especially for the MS.
2009-04-30 21:41:47 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: with high def conferencing the students could call in, right?
2009-04-30 21:42:27 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: IM is a wonderful thing for teens!! immediate access :-)
2009-04-30 21:43:19 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: I have had some students look at my webpage during snow days. I've left different things for them to do during the day for extra credit.
2009-04-30 21:43:29 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: we always used a phone tree for snow day notifications when I was a principal in MA
2009-04-30 21:43:57 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: that's a great idea Sheila!
2009-04-30 21:44:27 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @Sheila--now if you could just get paid for teaching on that snow day it would be perfect. :-)
2009-04-30 21:44:29 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: Surprised they actually did it. Well, about 5 out of 68.
2009-04-30 21:44:44 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: Oh, right . . . hmmmm.
2009-04-30 21:45:13 [Message] jstone_sf -> -EdTechTalk: Knock on wood...
2009-04-30 21:45:33 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: I'm new to the Bay Area and am kinda hoping to feel a quake....
2009-04-30 21:45:38 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: In CT, we depend on the t.v. and radio for snow day notification. The principal does have a listserve, but he can't be assured every parent could get the notification. Teachers rely on a phone tree. 
2009-04-30 21:45:39 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: we used the phone tree alert when we had to close our school due to flooding (Phoenix)
2009-04-30 21:45:41 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: ...a small one though!
2009-04-30 21:46:32 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: We do have an automated alert system but it didn't work during the power outage!
2009-04-30 21:46:48 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: http://www.google.org/flutrends/ Google link for flu trends-really interesting
2009-04-30 21:46:51 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: Interesting to note that last fall in West Haven, CT when a hurricane was threatening (never materialized) they sent out a van with loud speakers all through the community broadcasting a warning.
2009-04-30 21:47:10 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: what a trooper that Doug is!!
2009-04-30 21:47:26 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: Wow, Carol! That's different!
2009-04-30 21:47:34 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: what happens at a tweetup?
2009-04-30 21:47:41 [Message] jstone_sf -> -EdTechTalk: Our automated system is based in Canada in order to avoid that local power/damage problem...  We supposedly call them via satellite phone.  Of course, if no one local has power or phone... it won't be of that much use!
2009-04-30 21:48:09 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: lots of great plans coming for NECC Unplugged/NECC LIVE this year
2009-04-30 21:48:47 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: NECC Unplugged provides on site opportunities for spontaneous sharing and it's also streamed out virtually
2009-04-30 21:49:01 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I'm still praying--on another browser :-)
2009-04-30 21:49:10 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: @Sheila - I was really surprised when I heard the loud speakers blasting. I guess West Haven, so near Long Island Sound, didn't want to leave it to chance.
2009-04-30 21:49:42 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I think Steve is planning to stream all of the NECC Unplugged sessions on Elluminate this year
2009-04-30 21:50:50 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: that's a wonderful idea Matt-password protected ustream from DC for parents :-) I'll bet the parents really appreciate it
2009-04-30 21:51:11 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: It's going to be a loooonnnnggg busride!
2009-04-30 21:51:33 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: :)
2009-04-30 21:51:54 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I missed that they were going by bus! oh my!!
2009-04-30 21:51:56 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: I was in Camden, Maine this fall when the PopTech conference (Andrew Zolli) was going on. From what I understand, they were streaming to a local t.v. station so everyone who wanted to could hear these bright minds from all over the world. I watched he stream in the lobby of the Opera House for a time.
2009-04-30 21:52:06 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: No I was kidding!
2009-04-30 21:52:16 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: no battery power on the bus for laptops :-)
2009-04-30 21:52:23 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: whew!
2009-04-30 21:52:49 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: how exciting @carolteach4!!
2009-04-30 21:53:39 [Message] SheilaA -> -EdTechTalk: But Maine teachers are going a bus for NECC. Wifi on bus. Seedlings will be broadcasting or at least podcasting.

2009-04-30 22:12:04 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: What Michael said about really "loving" his students was great - I don't hear that voiced in such a direct way usually. Of course, we love them or we wouldn't be in the field.
