19:11:29 sheila -> Hi Karen!
19:11:39 dave -> http://www.jumpcut.com/
19:11:44 ds -> for the past couple of weeks, I've been restricted to Blackberry and eeepc access mostly--keyboard on eeepc takes some getting used to, but gets better with time
19:11:51 ds -> "...this time" lol
19:11:53 JohnS -> We bought some for sixth graders
19:12:06 dave -> http://edugrids.org/book/kwmuirhead/5-1300-ken-muirhead-uploading-editin...

19:16:00 dave -> http://ed366h.wetpaint.com/?t=anon
19:16:27 JenWagner -> Really? I could NOT figure out wetpaint -- and I tried and tried. I could not customize it
19:17:10 JenWagner -> should I give it 3rd time??
19:17:15 mrsdurff -> I am figuring it out for a classs
19:17:22 mrsdurff -> makes me do it
19:17:44 JenWagner -> I did not have to figure out Wikispaces or PBWiki --- maybe that is why I fought WetPaint....PERSONALLY, I had to figure it out
19:17:45 dave -> http://edugrids.org/book/cmmyer/2-1300-colleen-myer-using-wiki-organize-...
19:17:46 JenM -> The Open Classroom - some examples ... http://opencontent.org/blog/archives/514

19:20:45 mrsdurff -> hi JimP
19:20:51 JimPAX -> Hello.
19:21:17 KarenJan -> thank u for including AT software! it's too often overlooked
19:21:22 JenWagner -> -1 I decided NOT to do it. Will be able to read all about it on blogs and twitter
19:22:06 mrsdurff -> Is Elluminate even that big?
19:22:33 JenWagner -> were they going to use Elluminate???
19:23:00 mrsdurff -> oh, i thought so
19:23:07 mrsdurff -> hi jspence
19:23:11 ds -> was gonna say, just like WalMart . re scale
19:23:21 jspence -> Hi mrsdurff
19:23:22 JenWagner -> it would be interesting to see how they break up the groups
19:23:27 JenWagner -> VERY INTERESTING
19:23:58 JenWagner -> invite all 1,000 attendees
19:24:11 JenWagner -> you can opt for grades
19:24:37 JenWagner -> how many people do you really think will do this???
19:24:47 JenWagner -> how many do you think just joined because it WAS the thing to do
19:25:06 ds -> JDub, you think so
19:25:11 KarenJan -> i joined to gain from the wisdom of Stephen and George
19:25:19 JenWagner -> I think they need to realize a lot of people it was just the "TOOL OF THE WEEK"
19:25:23 ds -> sheep-like behaviour, in the edu-verse?
19:25:39 JenWagner -> LOL -- at DS -- smiles, I do --- but I was thinking lemmings -- not sheep
19:25:49 ds -> baaaaa
19:25:57 JenWagner -> :) what do you think??
19:26:00 KarenJan -> where else can you have a free opportunity to learn from those two who are so respected in education circles
19:26:03 mrsdurff -> 600? wow
19:26:22 JenWagner -> Will it stay open or is it a one session thing and then poof, it closes??
19:26:29 ds -> think it's great to have the problem of #s
19:26:37 ds -> relevant to what we do
19:26:58 KarenJan -> this is one tool that has value - advancing our own thinking and knowledge
19:27:04 ds -> scalability and sustainability are two key elements to all ID and delivery
19:27:21 ds -> or should be
19:27:23 JenWagner -> @ds -- I remember when my project jumped from 200 registrants to 1,000 -- but there was NOT a great deal of interaction other than emails.
19:27:29 JenM -> Firefox add on: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1941
19:27:38 mrsdurff -> they need to offer course to smaller groups repeatedly
19:27:43 JenWagner -> all I had was to update the webpage -- they have a MUCH bigger job
19:27:50 ds -> many of those enrolled aren't liable to be "wallflowers"
19:27:59 dave -> i'll be a wallflower
19:28:00 JenWagner -> do we have a list of enrollees??
19:28:09 dave -> quiet... slip into the background kinda guy
19:28:21 JohnS -> SMS Poll: http://www.smspoll.net/
19:28:24 ds -> @dave--that's what I was thinking
19:28:27 mrsdurff -> Does FF3 have all the good add-ons yet?
19:28:34 JenWagner -> I just hope it goes well -- because our network has not been kind to things that don't go perfect
19:28:58 mrsdurff -> no one is perfect
19:29:01 ds -> the network needs to get a grip > "if you're not part of the solution...."
19:29:14 mrsdurff -> pollyeverywhere
19:29:28 JohnS -> http://www.smashingapps.com/2008/07/18/13-most-unusual-search-engines-yo...
19:29:29 KarenJan -> do you know about the Click,Speak FF add-on for text-to-speech for students who struggle with reading?
19:29:31 mrsdurff -> not polly, poll
19:29:58 mrsdurff -> does it work with FF3?
19:30:03 KarenJan -> yes
19:30:27 sheila -> @KarenJan - good to know.
19:31:26 dave -> http://edugrids.org/book/susan/5-1400-susan-yeo-davison-class-cookbook-u...
19:31:42 mrsdurff -> it's the connections
19:32:36 KarenJan -> @sheila - has a toolbar so it's always available, too
19:32:42 ds -> cut and paste > old school, love it
19:32:42 sheila -> life skills at our school
19:32:45 JenWagner -> making it work exactly how she needed it ---
19:33:05 mrsdurff -> oh dear
19:33:17 ds -> yikes
19:33:21 mrsdurff -> hi alec
19:33:23 sheila -> blood and guts!
19:33:28 ds -> "don't do that" vifdeos, gotta love it
19:33:30 mrsdurff -> and gore
19:33:33 bmuench -> i need these kinds of ideas to pass on to my teachers!
19:33:35 ds -> Hey Alec
19:33:42 courosa -> hey all
19:33:58 dave -> yo ac
19:34:04 JenM -> Edu 2.0 Backlash? ... http://www.dumbestgeneration.com/welcome.html ... and ... http://www.edge.org/discourse/carr_google.html
19:34:15 ds -> welcome back, btw -- loved hearing 'bout your exploits in Greece
19:34:15 dave -> pat pat
19:34:41 mrsdurff -> who pats me on the back?
19:34:51 courosa -> @ds Greece was amazing, if you ever need a tour let me know.
19:34:53 dave -> pat pat
19:35:03 mrsdurff -> thank you dave
19:35:13 ds -> love to be able to take you up on that one day--never been
19:35:14 mrsdurff -> however sarcastic that is
19:35:41 courosa -> @ds thekyleguy got the one day version on Corfu, it was so much fun.
19:35:43 KarenJan -> @courosa - how was the conference itself?
19:35:57 ds -> very cool
19:36:02 courosa -> @KarenJan poor. :-(
19:36:07 KarenJan -> they will probably be the most flexible generation of all
19:36:35 mrsdurff -> why courosa?\
19:36:40 KarenJan -> @courosa - too bad - sounded like it had great potential. How would you have improved it?
19:36:54 JenWagner -> A college professor said the same thing to me about spell check
19:37:29 KarenJan -> @jen - there have always been poor spellers, now they can have greater success for the first time
19:37:29 ds -> was gonna say, take it from someone living in the land of "newlyweds and nearly deads" age--or presence or lack thereof--is not related to one's
"level of stupidity"
19:37:51 scott s -> our school has a grade 3 teacher that tells her students to rely on spell on spellcheck
19:37:57 JohnS -> Wordpress Theme Generator: http://www.yvoschaap.com/wpthemegen/ and Do Template: http://www.dotemplate.com/
19:37:58 JenWagner -> @karenjan -- I used the excuse that my spell check was broken and that is why there were so many errors. He tapped my head and said "Is this spell checker broken"
19:38:04 courosa -> @mrsdurff @KarenJan Too much poorly presented material, reading from PowerPOint, and most of the people lost in the 1990's
19:38:13 JenWagner -> @karen -- I agree with you -- but I know I could have done better and was using an excuse
19:38:19 scott s -> gotta ren....bye
19:38:22 KarenJan -> death by ppt, ugh!
19:38:23 courosa -> awww ... thanks for the Jen :-)
19:38:38 JohnS -> Wordpress Theme Gen: http://www.wordpressthemegen.com/
19:38:38 dave -> jen loves all the western canadian boys
19:38:42 JenM -> @alec :)
19:38:44 dave -> or should that be boyz
19:39:01 JenWagner -> Ohhh more themes to wander through :)
19:39:05 courosa -> beware the easterner boyz
19:39:06 bmuench -> will it work with edublogs?
19:39:21 dave -> https://secure.logmein.com/home.asp?lang=en
19:39:46 KarenJan -> @courosa - disappointing for you, I'm sure but did you get to spend time with family?
19:39:52 Cathy E -> I love logmein - I use it all the time
19:40:07 JenWagner -> CLAPPING -- I can make my OWN template --- instead of tweaking somone else's -- thanks JOHN!!!
19:40:29 Alvin Trusty -> I use Hamachi (owned by LogMeIn) and VNC on my machines. Very secure.
19:41:05 ds -> love the anecdotes re practical use of tools
19:41:24 courosa -> @KarenJan I did get to see my relatives, and met some great people. I have the opportunity to help 'fix' the conference, but I would rather create 'our' own than fix an existing one. Time for a European unconference.
19:41:31 JenWagner -> Yes, we do VPN's at my work
19:41:32 JenM -> More on learning and design ... http://innovatingeducation.wordpress.com/2008/07/09/critical-thinking-no... ... and ... http://www.city-journal.org/html/8_2_a1.html
19:41:38 Alvin Trusty -> Hamachi is free.
19:42:19 ds -> @courosa let me know when you're planning unconf EU -- have some contacts who would love to model/participate
19:42:40 KarenJan -> @courosa - was at BLC this week where there were many from Canada & Australia but few from Europe other than England - there IS a need for an European unconference
19:43:12 courosa -> @KarenJan I agree, huge disconnect, we could learn from them and vice versa.
19:43:23 kevinh -> me too!
19:43:33 mrsdurff -> did he teach them anything?
19:43:37 courosa -> @ds If there were enough interest, I'd put some haste on the idea.
19:44:32 KarenJan -> would anyone go to a 55 y.o Dr. who refused to keep uptodate with the research and tech?
19:44:42 ds -> @courosa coolio--think it's a great idea
19:44:44 mrsdurff -> nt I
19:44:47 JimPAX -> And even then, you're depending on some other person's authority for the information.
19:45:13 courosa -> that is pretty interesting for teacher education ... is that a big piece of what we should do now? Have all new teachers build a ed. network? Should that be mandatory?
19:45:31 courosa -> Can introverts be good teachers?
19:45:46 ds -> think that network for teachers would go a long way to stemming the high turnover
19:45:49 kevinh -> They are good at not intruding maybe.
19:45:50 mrsdurff -> who is an introvert?
19:46:11 mrsdurff -> oh I know, dave is
19:46:14 ds -> haven't heard the latest numbers, but understand that new teachers are opting out in growing numbers
19:46:37 ds -> "not in this alone" might help to mitigate attrition
19:46:40 KarenJan -> i keep meeting people who are getting into teaching as a second career
19:46:44 courosa -> @ds And some never even make the classroom, the B.Ed is much more transferable than it used to be.
19:46:58 mrsdurff -> B.Ed.?
19:47:04 ds -> bachelor of ed
19:47:12 mrsdurff -> is that Canadian?
19:47:28 mrsdurff -> I just got a B.A.
19:47:42 courosa -> @mrsdurff not sure, i thought there was an American equiv.
19:47:59 courosa -> My Faculty has a 4yr B.Ed
19:48:12 mrsdurff -> not a M.Ed?
19:48:21 courosa -> after the B.Ed
19:48:28 JohnS -> Clippy Office Assistant Image Generator: http://www.imagegenerator.net/create/clippy/
19:48:40 courosa -> thanks Jen
19:48:42 mrsdurff -> but shouldn't college faculty have that?
19:48:53 JenWagner -> CLIPPY -- I had missed CLIPPY!!!
19:48:57 mrsdurff -> they do in USA
19:49:05 JenM -> All of our links from tonight ... http://del.icio.us/edtechtalk/20080720
19:49:14 JohnS -> Mine: http://tinyurl.com/5gv6c4
19:49:18 JenWagner -> I used DOT more than CLIPPY though
19:49:28 courosa -> @mrsdurff Professors need a PhD, but may have a M.Ed, or M.A if they are in an Instructor position.
19:49:38 JimPAX -> This may be the funniest thing I've seen today. . .
19:49:54 JenM -> to add links "for:edtechtalk"
