21:13:30 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: You are going so fast. We have started using some web 2.0 tools at our school but haven't connected with classes in other geographical locations. I really want us to do this, but I'm not sure how to connect. Perhaps that poetry project might be a good place to start.

21:13:45 [Message] JenW -> -EdTechTalk: I think it is the first icon -- the speaker icon??

21:20:15 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: :-)

21:21:25 [Message] meacherteacher -> -EdTechTalk: What age of kids are usually involved?

21:22:08 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: this is really breaking down the walls--such an exciting project!

21:22:32 [Message] jackiegerstein -> -EdTechTalk: really gives meaning to a flat world

21:22:57 [Message] meacherteacher -> -EdTechTalk: Talk about expending students' horizons!!

21:23:09 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: student voices can definitely help us to view things from a different perspective--so wonderful

21:23:18 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: @ JenW - thanks so much. I'll go there now and bookmark it.

21:23:23 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: we have set up a ning where the students involved can interact with each other - peer review, we even have experts in the filed providing feedback about the rough cuts

21:23:51 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @sharonp-do you have a separate ning from the take2 ning?

21:24:13 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: no...we are using the TAke2 Students' view ning

21:24:27 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: incredible story about parent involvement!

21:24:43 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I just joined that ning--amazing stuff there

21:24:52 [Message] meacherteacher -> -EdTechTalk: @sharonp - your kids are secondary.  I'm not worried about the editing skills, but in your opinion, could the footage still be appropriate for my fourth graders?

21:25:06 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: we need to tell our politicians about this site!

21:25:20 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: One of our social studies teachers got the kids involved in a fund raiser for Darfur last year. They raised enough to buy a few shelter boxes for ther refugees. This year they knitted infant caps, and we had a speaker from "Save the Children". It wasn't high tech, but the kids' awareness was raised.

21:25:58 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: What is the situation in Darfur now? I heard that most of the relief agencies had been kicked out.

21:27:00 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @carolteach4--awesome project and great example for making this work with younger kids

21:27:44 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: this is so much more powerful than a powerpoint presentation :-) the power of visuals!

21:30:26 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: it's probably no more graphic than what they see on the nightly news

21:31:25 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: what are the editing tools you recommend for the students?

21:32:43 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: amazing 8 different tools! from cheap to expensive--lots of possibilities!

21:32:48 [Message] steven.kimmi -> -EdTechTalk: What is the topic this evening?

21:33:25 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: http://take2videos.ning.com/ Karin Muller is our guest

21:33:52 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: http://take2videos.org/index.html

21:34:54 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: that's a great suggestion Sharon

21:34:54 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: @steven -Thanks for asking. I kind of missed that. Now I'm feeling more comfortable.

21:34:56 [Message] steven.kimmi -> -EdTechTalk: Ooh, I like that, not failing because of failure of the hardware

21:35:29 [Message] steven.kimmi -> -EdTechTalk: @carol - no problem.

21:35:40 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: even voicethread would work as a simple starting place

21:36:48 [Message] meacherteacher -> -EdTechTalk: I love the idea of all that background information.

21:37:02 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: We use PhotoStory3 alot, and our 7th graders do fabulous projects with it.

21:37:26 [Message] meacherteacher -> -EdTechTalk: Great suggestion, sharon, to work with a more limited quantity of footage

21:38:11 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: approaching them by themes or modules is a very helpful suggestion

21:38:48 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: what is doctors without borders?

21:39:01 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: I recently bought a VadoHD from Creative, but I don't have any editing program that will import the HD video. I can change the setting to VGA, but then the definition is really poor. Any ideas?

21:39:16 [Message] jvirant -> -EdTechTalk: http://doctorswithoutborders.org/

21:39:32 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: thanks jvirant

21:40:00 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: Doctors Without Borders is a large organization of doctors who volunteer their skills all over the world. Unfortunately, I heard they had to leave Darfur.

21:40:08 [Message] jvirant -> -EdTechTalk: You're welcome!

21:40:17 [Message] JenW -> -EdTechTalk: @carolteach4   I have not really devoted ANY time to learning video yet.   sorry

21:40:27 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: yes, they made the decisioin to leave Darfur bec of the violence

21:41:16 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: What a shame!

21:41:21 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I love the collaborative nature of the project!!

21:42:17 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: This is so interesting about the copyright aspect.

21:42:46 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: This sounds almost like the project at Thinkquest.org

21:43:05 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: hey y'all

21:43:10 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: How absolutely courageous!

21:43:17 [Message] jackiegerstein -> -EdTechTalk: Collaboration is one of the top skills that the forutune 500 companies want plus most of my student young and college prefer to work in groups

21:43:41 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: amazing stories!!!!!

21:44:08 [Message] jackiegerstein -> -EdTechTalk: Karin has great stories - someone should do a digital story about her

21:44:11 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: rain good luck on a wedding!

21:44:34 [Message] jackiegerstein -> -EdTechTalk: Where is Karin located - I am spending the summer in New Mexico

21:46:39 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Karin has authored 3 books that have been translated into 8 languages!

21:46:49 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: Thank goodness we have people like Karin who are willing to risk personal safety in order to effect education and change.

21:47:34 [Message] steven.kimmi -> -EdTechTalk: Has anyone had luck with video in voicethread, it seem slike the longer narrative of a video stifles the comments of others.

21:47:54 [Message] JenW -> -EdTechTalk: welcome Matt -- looks like you got stuck in the revolving door of the chat room

21:48:00 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: she is providing us with an education most of us could never get any other way-thrilling!

21:48:05 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: you may have talked about this...The Girl Effect: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIvmE4_KMNw

21:48:32 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: Jdub...this chat behaves really weird in safari when you open new tabs...sorry 'bout that

21:48:53 [Message] JenW -> -EdTechTalk: @matt  -- no worries......   I need to try the chat room with safari to see what you are talking about

21:50:13 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: very funny!!

21:50:21 [Message] jvirant -> -EdTechTalk: Every friend I've had who has done Peace Corps, etc. discusses the bribe factor in Africa...

21:50:22 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: I ponder that question alot about "western ways/values"

21:50:31 [Message] jvirant -> -EdTechTalk: A dead chicken--novel!!

21:51:27 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: http://www.japanlandonline.com/ for books and DVDs of Karin's documentary series

21:51:27 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: Oh, my. What a story! I could never ever do something like this. Thank goodness for that human protection.

21:51:58 [Message] jackiegerstein -> -EdTechTalk: She is very fascinating - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karin_Muller

21:53:23 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: thanks for that link Jackie--very interesting!

21:54:04 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: that's a great idea for the film festival with differing points of view

21:54:13 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: Karin mentioned that she isn't an educator; I beg to differ. What a wonderful educator, she is.

21:54:20 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: I've really been pondering pure capitalism in a world with a growing population and natural resource scarcity...

21:54:21 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: absolutely!!

21:54:23 [Message] JenW -> -EdTechTalk: I agree @carol

21:55:03 [Message] JenW -> -EdTechTalk: @matt   I have been thinking the same lately.

21:55:22 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: @Matt - was it you who set up the EarthCast09 voice thread?

21:55:29 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: thank you sooooo much Karin!!! What a valuable experience listening to you and learning from you!

21:55:56 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: @carol...it was the Earthbridges/Earthcast team that got that voicethread going

21:56:14 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: her model of using teachers on the steering committee is outstanding!

21:56:19 [Message] sroseman -> -EdTechTalk: thanks all

21:56:37 [Message] jackiegerstein -> -EdTechTalk: Tell Karin I will give her a call when I get back to Santa Fe in a few weeks !

21:56:54 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: What a great conversation. So many links to follow. Thanks for all the inspiration.

21:57:26 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: May 12- Robin Ellis, May 26-TEachers without Borders-trip to Africa

21:57:50 [Message] jvirant -> -EdTechTalk: Maybe you've not been a "teacher" in a "classroom"...but a teacher in the global sense, absolutely, Karin.

21:58:16 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: @jvirant...great point...

21:58:40 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: the opportunities for networking at conferences is so valuable!! so glad you shared that

21:13:25 [Message] sroseman -> -EdTechTalk: where is it

21:13:30 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: You are going so fast. We have started using some web 2.0 tools at our school but haven't connected with classes in other geographical locations. I really want us to do this, but I'm not sure how to connect. Perhaps that poetry project might be a good place to start.

21:13:45 [Message] JenW -> -EdTechTalk: I think it is the first icon -- the speaker icon??

21:14:07 [Message] jackiegerstein -> -EdTechTalk: What conference?

21:18:23 [Message] Cheri T -> -EdTechTalk: I would, Peggy

21:18:38 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: such a wonderful point!! need one enthusiastic teacher :-)

21:19:04 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: We want to get the word out about TAke2 - so pass along this great program to the teachers in your network

21:20:00 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: what a thrilling experience for students!

21:20:15 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: :-)

21:21:25 [Message] meacherteacher -> -EdTechTalk: What age of kids are usually involved?

21:22:08 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: this is really breaking down the walls--such an exciting project!

21:22:32 [Message] jackiegerstein -> -EdTechTalk: really gives meaning to a flat world

21:22:57 [Message] meacherteacher -> -EdTechTalk: Talk about expending students' horizons!!

21:23:09 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: student voices can definitely help us to view things from a different perspective--so wonderful

21:23:18 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: @ JenW - thanks so much. I'll go there now and bookmark it.

21:23:23 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: we have set up a ning where the students involved can interact with each other - peer review, we even have experts in the filed providing feedback about the rough cuts

21:23:51 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @sharonp-do you have a separate ning from the take2 ning?

21:24:13 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: no...we are using the TAke2 Students' view ning

21:24:27 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: incredible story about parent involvement!

21:24:43 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I just joined that ning--amazing stuff there

21:24:52 [Message] meacherteacher -> -EdTechTalk: @sharonp - your kids are secondary.  I'm not worried about the editing skills, but in your opinion, could the footage still be appropriate for my fourth graders?

21:25:06 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: we need to tell our politicians about this site!

21:25:20 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: One of our social studies teachers got the kids involved in a fund raiser for Darfur last year. They raised enough to buy a few shelter boxes for ther refugees. This year they knitted infant caps, and we had a speaker from "Save the Children". It wasn't high tech, but the kids' awareness was raised.

21:25:58 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: What is the situation in Darfur now? I heard that most of the relief agencies had been kicked out.

21:27:00 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @carolteach4--awesome project and great example for making this work with younger kids

21:27:44 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: this is so much more powerful than a powerpoint presentation :-) the power of visuals!

21:30:26 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: it's probably no more graphic than what they see on the nightly news

21:31:25 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: what are the editing tools you recommend for the students?

21:32:43 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: amazing 8 different tools! from cheap to expensive--lots of possibilities!

21:32:48 [Message] steven.kimmi -> -EdTechTalk: What is the topic this evening?

21:33:25 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: http://take2videos.ning.com/ Karin Muller is our guest

21:33:52 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: http://take2videos.org/index.html

21:34:54 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: that's a great suggestion Sharon

21:34:54 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: @steven -Thanks for asking. I kind of missed that. Now I'm feeling more comfortable.

21:34:56 [Message] steven.kimmi -> -EdTechTalk: Ooh, I like that, not failing because of failure of the hardware

21:35:29 [Message] steven.kimmi -> -EdTechTalk: @carol - no problem.

21:35:40 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: even voicethread would work as a simple starting place

21:36:48 [Message] meacherteacher -> -EdTechTalk: I love the idea of all that background information.

21:37:02 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: We use PhotoStory3 alot, and our 7th graders do fabulous projects with it.

21:37:26 [Message] meacherteacher -> -EdTechTalk: Great suggestion, sharon, to work with a more limited quantity of footage

21:38:11 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: approaching them by themes or modules is a very helpful suggestion

21:38:48 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: what is doctors without borders?

21:39:01 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: I recently bought a VadoHD from Creative, but I don't have any editing program that will import the HD video. I can change the setting to VGA, but then the definition is really poor. Any ideas?

21:39:16 [Message] jvirant -> -EdTechTalk: http://doctorswithoutborders.org/

21:39:32 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: thanks jvirant

21:40:00 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: Doctors Without Borders is a large organization of doctors who volunteer their skills all over the world. Unfortunately, I heard they had to leave Darfur.

21:40:08 [Message] jvirant -> -EdTechTalk: You're welcome!

21:40:17 [Message] JenW -> -EdTechTalk: @carolteach4   I have not really devoted ANY time to learning video yet.   sorry

21:40:27 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: yes, they made the decisioin to leave Darfur bec of the violence

21:41:16 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: What a shame!

21:41:21 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I love the collaborative nature of the project!!

21:42:17 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: This is so interesting about the copyright aspect.

21:42:46 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: This sounds almost like the project at Thinkquest.org

21:43:05 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: hey y'all

21:43:10 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: How absolutely courageous!

21:43:17 [Message] jackiegerstein -> -EdTechTalk: Collaboration is one of the top skills that the forutune 500 companies want plus most of my student young and college prefer to work in groups

21:43:41 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: amazing stories!!!!!

21:44:08 [Message] jackiegerstein -> -EdTechTalk: Karin has great stories - someone should do a digital story about her

21:44:11 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: rain good luck on a wedding!

21:44:34 [Message] jackiegerstein -> -EdTechTalk: Where is Karin located - I am spending the summer in New Mexico

21:46:39 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Karin has authored 3 books that have been translated into 8 languages!

21:46:49 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: Thank goodness we have people like Karin who are willing to risk personal safety in order to effect education and change.

21:47:34 [Message] steven.kimmi -> -EdTechTalk: Has anyone had luck with video in voicethread, it seem slike the longer narrative of a video stifles the comments of others.

21:47:54 [Message] JenW -> -EdTechTalk: welcome Matt -- looks like you got stuck in the revolving door of the chat room

21:48:00 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: she is providing us with an education most of us could never get any other way-thrilling!

21:48:05 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: you may have talked about this...The Girl Effect: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIvmE4_KMNw

21:48:32 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: Jdub...this chat behaves really weird in safari when you open new tabs...sorry 'bout that

21:48:53 [Message] JenW -> -EdTechTalk: @matt  -- no worries......   I need to try the chat room with safari to see what you are talking about

21:50:13 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: very funny!!

21:50:21 [Message] jvirant -> -EdTechTalk: Every friend I've had who has done Peace Corps, etc. discusses the bribe factor in Africa...

21:50:22 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: I ponder that question alot about "western ways/values"

21:50:31 [Message] jvirant -> -EdTechTalk: A dead chicken--novel!!

21:53:23 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: thanks for that link Jackie--very interesting!

21:54:04 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: that's a great idea for the film festival with differing points of view

21:54:13 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: Karin mentioned that she isn't an educator; I beg to differ. What a wonderful educator, she is.

21:54:20 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: I've really been pondering pure capitalism in a world with a growing population and natural resource scarcity...

21:54:21 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: absolutely!!

21:54:23 [Message] JenW -> -EdTechTalk: I agree @carol

21:55:03 [Message] JenW -> -EdTechTalk: @matt   I have been thinking the same lately.

21:55:22 [Message] carolteach4 -> -EdTechTalk: @Matt - was it you who set up the EarthCast09 voice thread?

21:55:29 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: thank you sooooo much Karin!!! What a valuable experience listening to you and learning from you!

21:55:56 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: @carol...it was the Earthbridges/Earthcast team that got that voicethread going

21:56:14 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: her model of using teachers on the steering committee is outstanding!

21:56:19 [Message] sroseman -> -EdTechTalk: thanks all

21:56:37 [Message] jackiegerstein -> -EdTechTalk: Tell Karin I will give her a call when I get back to Santa Fe in a few weeks !
