My hero, Larry Ferlazzo, joined us at Seedlings, Thursday night. I have admired Larry since early 2006, when I became a Webhead. Larry's name was always mentioned as someone who found the best of the best Web 2.0 tools in order to help English Language Learners. As it turns out my expectations were surpassed. Larry is very thoughtful and reflective and certainly made all of us think during our show! I know you will enjoy this one. No Seedlings show next Thursday, we will all be sitting around the Thanksgiving Dinner table. However, we return Dec. 2, 2010, with Wes Fryer and his daughter Rachel for our 100th Seedlings Show. We are thankful to Worldbridges and EdTechTalk for their continued support, and most of all our listeners!

Join Alice, Bob and Cheryl as we chat with Larry Ferlazzo. All his wonderful links are included in Geek of the Week! Thanks to the chat room, there is plenty of information to support Larry's chat, and all that is happening in the world of our PLN. Have a great Thanksgiving for all who celebrate. We will be back with show 100, Wes and Rachel Fryer, Dec. 2, 2010!
For now, the teaser is the audio placeholder. I will re-post the audio soon.

19:50:12 alicebarr (SEEDlings) http://larryferlazzo.edublogs.org/
19:51:44 lauriehowarth I am getting an echo and everything is being repeated. is this normal?
19:51:51 bobsprankle http://engagingparentsinschool.edublogs.org/
19:51:59 Beth Holmes So glad to hear Larry tonight. Connecting parents to schooling at any age is critically important.
19:52:28 alicebarr (SEEDlings) http://www.pthvp.org/about.html
19:54:52 Beth Holmes Yes! From the middle school up, the culture often suggests that parents should disengage. There is a subtle hint that parents should "let go."
19:55:21 JackDs01 even 9th to 12th has a HUGE difference in parents showing up to conferences
19:55:51 cheryloakes~seedlings beth you are so right, that is the wrong message for middle and HS
19:58:34 Beth Holmes Finland's Minister of Education credits parent involvement/engagement as one of the key factors contributing to student success.
20:00:23 alicebarr (SEEDlings) http://www.postrank.com/
20:00:47 Larry Ferlazzo Beth, if you have a link to Finland info, I'd love to get it
20:01:44 alicebarr (SEEDlings) http://www.postrank.com/postrank#how

20:09:02 Beth Holmes Article: Why do Finland's schools get the best results? Good article/videos. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/programmes/world_news_america/8601207.stm 
20:10:51 cheryloakes~seedlings Love that, School is where young people to to see Old people work! Larry Ferlazzo!
20:11:08 cheryloakes~seedlings go to see Old people work!
20:16:01 cheryloakes~seedlings Have you heard of the marshmallow study?
20:16:13 Lorna yes
20:16:26 Lorna very tempting to eat the marshmallow :)
20:21:59 Beth Holmes Larry, have you read MIND IN THE MAKING by Ellen Galinsky? She goes into detail about FOCUS and SELF-CONTROL, one of 7 Essential Life Skills. She discusses helping children learn to delay gratification - using the marshmallow exercise.
20:22:18 cheryloakes~seedlings thanks beth!
20:22:28 cheryloakes~seedlings I will ask him.
20:22:34 Lorna @beth that is an excellent resource
20:24:15 Beth Holmes Galinsky's work focuses on the young child - but it is fascinating to see how the essential skills for the 21st C can be developed in very, very young children.
20:24:55 Larry Ferlazzo Yes, I'm familiar with Galinsky's book and like it alot
20:25:51 cheryloakes~seedlings Thanks for the links everyone!
20:26:32 Alisha is there a link to this marshmallow study?
