mrsdurff -> hesitate not Liz
KarenJan -> what has Liz added that especially helps high school kids with executive function issues
mrsdurff -> i love jott!
KarenJan -> are you paying for it now?
mrsdurff -> emails or reminders txt you
mrsdurff -> i pay for no software
PeggyG -> http://www.cellphonesinlearning.com/ Liz's blog is loaded with tools and strategies for using cell phones in learning :-)
KarenJan -> was it miguel who said digital residents and digital travelers?
mrsdurff -> used polleverywhere?
mrsdurff -> Gabcast!
mrsdurff -> but they DO the homework if they bring the cellphones
mrsdurff -> so i break the rules
PeggyG -> I really liked Liz's latest blog post about using cell phones as assistive technologies. It was loaded with resources.
KarenJan -> @peggyg - whats the link?
PeggyG -> http://www.cellphonesinlearning.com/--that's her blog-post was Oct. 1
PeggyG -> dropio sounds wonderful! I've never used it.
stevesoko -> @Liz - do you find that the current cost of US cell phone data plans create digital $$$ divides? Lots of cheap stuff you can do but eventually if we go for the ability use web via phone is $$$. Even text and SMS can be $$$
mrsdurff -> evoca?
KarenJan -> Thanks for the link @peggyg
mrsdurff -> hi scott
Scott Shelhart -> HEllo Lisa
PeggyG -> that is amazing that you can listen to radio shows and pick up where you left off! I have to try it!
lorenchuk -> What do your kids podcast each week?
mrsdurff -> so is she giving a class?
cheryloakes -> Hello to all who have entered the room while I was at delicious http://delicious.com/seedlingsgeekoftheweek 
"cheryloakes -> Scott, welcome. Durff, I will ask about evoca"
lorenchuk -> That last audio was very hard to hear
PeggyG -> yes Alice was very soft...
"lorenchuk -> Thank you, wondering about my own system"
mrsdurff -> i do - unlimited txt msgng
mrsdurff -> students txt or IM
bobsprankle -> hey ernie!
mrsdurff -> i am more comfortable with txt or IM too
mrsdurff -> if just those tiny keyboards were bigger...........…
stevesoko -> Ulimited text - just give up the battle and let them have it. I pay for phone but make Ms17 and Ms23 pay fo their text msg cost
mrsdurff -> hi ernie
cheryloakes -> Hi Ernie.
ErnieEaster -> Hi - just got in - now to connect the audio part
mrsdurff -> click the black icon ernie
mrsdurff -> hi cathy
"cheryloakes -> Hi CathyE, welcome."
cheryloakes -> Welcome back Ernie.
Cathy E -> This network is the BEST!
mrsdurff -> hi again ernie
cheryloakes -> Ernie is our teacher of the year in Maine! Go Ernie.
ErnieEaster -> I keep getting kicked out everytime I try to connect to the audio stream???
mrsdurff -> url for geo graffitti?
stevesoko -> I do think that at HS for kids sometimes the phone you have and teh plan you have = status. Ulimited text plans vs limited per month plans vs pay as you go is a social statement
Cathy E -> Yea- Ernie
mrsdurff -> ernie trry the blue icon
cheryloakes -> geograffiti.com
mrsdurff -> it is stev
Cathy E -> Earnie- do the audio first
Cathy E -> then the chat
mrsdurff -> i know kids who still have tracphones

cheryloakes -> evening Maureen/bcdtech
"cheryloakes -> Hello Paulrwood, welcome"
mrsdurff -> hey maureen
paulrwood -> Hello Cheryl
ErnieEaster -> Thanks - all for doing something right. Did you hear the story Cheryl?
Maureen/bcdtech -> Hello everyone!
"KarenJan -> Hey, Paul and Maureen!"
"mrsdurff -> which one of us views learning as in one place, time?"
cheryloakes -> No what story Ernie?
paulrwood -> Hello Karen
cheryloakes -> Learning is all the time isn't it.
mrsdurff -> ooo! chacha!!
mrsdurff -> used that with seniors in high school
KarenJan -> anyone using Evernote with their iPhones?
bobsprankle -> me! love it!
PeggyG -> chacha is amazing-heard a podcast last week that highlighted it and I didn't think of all of those things you could use it for with students.
"lorenchuk -> Yes, but just a little, have you used it much?"
paulrwood -> @karenJan I havent used it on my phone
"KarenJan -> @bob - would love a tutorial on the best ways to use it, for me and for students"
KarenJan -> seems to be something that I need to explore further
PeggyG -> say more about evernote
mrsdurff -> digital nomads
mrsdurff -> not chained to any certain place or time
KarenJan -> @peggy - there's an online version and an iPhone version http://evernote.com/ 
Maureen/bcdtech -> Oh-oh and me with no cell phone or access.
mrsdurff -> makes one wonder why schools persist
"ErnieEaster -> As you know Vicki nominated me after we got to know each other because I asked her if I could use her cute dog & cat photo with the cat saying ""I said I like blogs"" In a presentation I put together about Web 2.0 tools."
PeggyG -> Thanks Karen!
"cheryloakes -> I like that Durff, digital nomads, no time constraints."
"cheryloakes -> That is a great story, you should blog that!! Ernie."
mrsdurff -> cheryl - not mine - read it somewhere
mrsdurff -> have no idea where
"KarenJan -> i find i'm much more willing to explore the tools than my own kids - 18, 19 and 24 - they seem set in their ways with how they use the technology"
Maureen/bcdtech -> My 24 and 26 yr olds use text and rarely use email- but nothing else
mrsdurff -> could we get rid of waiting lines at customs too?
"PeggyG -> @Ernie--another awesome example of the flat world, huh? what a great story!"
"cheryloakes -> Karen, I agree, my kids toos."
alicebarr -> @KarenJan I see that with some of the students in my school
lorenchuk -> @KarenJan I would agree but I think being in education helps us explore
mrsdurff -> Peggy - the world is NOT flat - it is wrinkled
ErnieEaster -> You'll hear the story as part of my 5 minutes at ACTEM
"cheryloakes -> Okay, Ernie!!"
"Maureen/bcdtech -> @Alice I see reluctance from my 9th graders- they don't want to have scribes, don't really want to use google docs...weird"
ErnieEaster -> Apparently Vicki and the music teacher at my school are collaborating with some type of video for the intro - my students writing part of the script???
mrsdurff -> and if one doesn't have a camera phone?
Scott Shelhart -> what is the link? Kaywa.com?
"cheryloakes -> We are seeing tht too Maureen, where kids want to keep the technology to themselves."
KarenJan -> I think it speaks to the importance of us modeling for students our commitment to life long learning
PeggyG -> every time I hear Liz talk I just keep saying-oh wow!! what amazing resources!
bobsprankle -> def!
"cheryloakes -> Peggy, I can't even ask a question I am so in awe."

"cheryloakes -> 3 years for an individual who is reluctant, maybe 12 years for education?"
mrsdurff -> AMEN!! We don't need those Senteos
"KarenJan -> @paul, so that's one way your Catholic school is ahead of public schools"
