18:37:18 Durff -> shows how hungry we all are for information!
18:37:23 cheryloakes wow2 -> It is something that people in education can not understand yet,
that people will listen to presentations more than once.
18:37:47 Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach -> http://k12onlineconference.org/

18:50:55 JenniferW -> it was a big learning curve

19:42:38 Durff -> Happy New Year!!
19:44:36 cheryloakes wow2 -> Happy New Year, 5 min. to dinner.
20:36:53 sendkathy -> Hi, I'm just jumping into the coversation so I have no idea what's been covered.
When you are talking about podcasting are you focusing on audio only?
20:37:46 sendkathy -> What are the best podast aggregators?  If we are an audience find it's niche?
20:45:02 AlexR -> Elly (6 on the 2nd) just asked if she can participate...
Funny that kids know that they can participate.
20:46:27 AlexR -> That know that media is interactive.
20:50:03 sendkathy -> The average person is just catching onto buying a card reader
instead of just loading camera software on their computers.
20:51:53 AlexR -> We've been training the teachers to use the sd cards in their laptops since the newest
 generation came with SD readers...
20:52:17 sendkathy -> Where do you work?
20:52:27 AlexR -> At a K-12 Independent School in NYC.
20:53:18 AlexR -> I think that the iTunes store and TED Talks along with my video iPod has definitely
changed the way that I use technology.
20:53:23 AlexR -> And consume media.
20:53:38 sendkathy -> Ahh, our teachers are just getting the idea out of necessity since tech support
won't load any outside software.
20:53:52 AlexR -> Elly's taking a picture of me with her Fisher Price digital camera!
20:53:54 AlexR -> Funny.
20:54:06 AlexR -> The wonder of self reliance.
20:54:16 AlexR -> Kathy -- where are you?
20:54:42 sendkathy -> I have a video ipod and have made several video and audio podcasts
but other teachers avoid even learning about it because they don't want to have any extra work.
I'm in Alpharetta GA at a k5 elem.
20:55:04 sendkathy -> I teach kindergarten
20:56:38 AlexR -> I'm sure that your parents and students love the video and audio.
20:56:47 sendkathy -> they do
20:57:03 AlexR -> My daughter (elly) is in K and is downloading her photos now.
20:57:26 sendkathy -> great!
20:57:53 sendkathy -> Does she have a high tech teacher?
20:58:48 AlexR -> Here's a great podcast on higher ed podcasting:
http://www.speedofcreativity.org/2006/11/17/podcast101-webcast-podcast-s...
20:58:55 AlexR -> No --- i'm her technology consultant!
20:59:17 sendkathy -> I wish I didn't have to go, but my entire extended family has discovered
that I am looked away in the computer room!!!
Happy New Year all!
20:59:32 AlexR -> Her teachers send us a weekly newsletter via e-mail and distribute
classroom photos via photo sharing sites.
20:59:37 AlexR -> Happy New Year!
