19:37:24 Debbarrows2 Got to love Windows
19:37:29 Debbarrows2 Cheryl do you have one
19:37:30 alicebarr (SEEDlings) :)
19:37:38 PeggyG would love to have a "prize" tonight of a Livescribe pen!!! :-)
19:37:41 bobsprankle hi peggy!
19:37:46 cheryloakes50 I have a Livescribe Pen, I will bring tomorrow
19:37:47 Debbarrows2 We can show it tomorrow at the training.
19:37:49 alicebarr (SEEDlings) Yes Prize!
19:37:57 cheryloakes50 Sure thing Deb
19:38:02 PeggyG they are fabulous for creating MathCasts!
19:38:02 alicebarr (SEEDlings) Is tomorrow your training in Wells Deb??
19:38:10 alicebarr (SEEDlings) Wish I could come
19:38:16 cheryloakes50 Oh, yes math casts with the pen
19:38:22 cheryloakes50 Hi Charlene!!! Welcome
19:38:35 bobsprankle hi charlene!!!!!
19:38:37 Debbarrows2 Great - thanks for bringing it. I have an idea and want to try it.
19:38:45 cheryloakes50 Yes, I love the sketches you can collect
19:38:56 cheryloakes50 Great Deb.
19:39:24 Debbarrows2 Yes Alice, you can stop in...
19:39:27 PeggyG the pens are really incredible! wish I had one!!
19:39:52 cstanley I've heard about the LiveScribe Pen, but that's about the extent of it. It sounds like an exciting tool.
19:40:05 alicebarr (SEEDlings) I wish I could Deb, but it's not going to happen :(
19:40:11 Debbarrows2 I never wanted to go back and edit - wish I had the pen in school.
19:40:12 PeggyG Hi cstanley!!
19:40:24 Debbarrows2 I realize that you probably couldn't Alice.
19:40:35 alicebarr (SEEDlings) Do you have to use special paper?
19:40:50 cheryloakes50 http://www.livescribe.com/en-us/
19:40:59 cstanley Hi, Peggy. You know, it was Bob and Seedlings that got me started attending all these wonderful PD opportunities.
19:41:15 cheryloakes50 Carol, you are a great cheerleader
19:41:24 bobsprankle hi Carol!!!!
19:41:32 cstanley You guys are a great team!
19:41:46 PeggyG Seedlings is always a great show!!
19:42:40 cstanley Wow! I'm not sure I can write a 3-page story.:)
19:43:00 charlene Hi! First time here.....I have a Livescribe Pen for classroom use but none of my kids are really interested in using it. I teach 6-7-8 year old people...what am I doing wrong?
19:43:33 alicebarr (SEEDlings) @charlene Great question! We'll ask!
19:43:51 cheryloakes50 Great question Charlene! Have you shared it with them on the Promethean board? So they can see the playback?
19:43:55 cstanley There is so much emphasis on persuasive writing and formal writing-prompt structure in our school that there is really very little time for narrative writing.
19:44:21 connect2jamie Duh...wondered why I still didn't have any audio--I was on mute! Long day...
19:44:26 cstanley Lots of student stories are going unheard - at least in school. It's a waste.
19:44:43 cheryloakes50 glad you found that out jamie :-)
19:44:49 connect2jamie :)
19:44:58 charlene Didn't know I could use it w/ Promethan! There's sound? I can't find it and I'm not on mute!
19:45:16 cstanley I have found that PhotoStory 3 is a very effective tool for just that reason.
19:45:21 PeggyG This is a link to the Mathcasts page that talkes about creating Mathcasts with the Livescribe pen http://math247.pbworks.com/w/page/20517573/Mathcasts+-+Pencasts+-+LiveSc...
19:45:25 connect2jamie @charlene click on the little speaker icon at top right that says EdTechTalk A
19:45:34 cheryloakes50 Charlene, look on the right side of page
19:45:39 alicebarr (SEEDlings) @Charlene Look fo the little mic above on the right
19:45:53 cheryloakes50 Thanks Peggy
19:46:25 cstanley Modeling is key!
19:46:39 PeggyG this is great advice!! modeling!
19:47:16 connect2jamie @charlene did you find the audio?
19:48:21 PeggyG sometimes the kids are just shy about talking on a microphone and may need some "play" time to get used to it.
19:48:27 charlene Nope. I'm trying everything that makes sense. the speaker didn't do it. I can keep reading & go to bit by bit tomorrow.
19:48:53 cheryloakes50 click on the real player speaker,please try that
19:49:22 PeggyG I'll bet this really encourages them to be willing to revise and edit :-)
19:49:24 Debbarrows2 @Charlene - are you on a Mac or PC?
19:49:26 cheryloakes50 the itunes speaker did not work for me tonight
19:49:29 Debbarrows2 I had trouble on the Mac
19:49:43 PeggyG I'm listening in itunes on my Mac
19:50:02 cheryloakes50 Thanks Deb, no itunes on mac for me, Peggy, that is good you have it on itunes.
19:50:07 cstanley @Charlene - you do have to have RealAudio player downloaded in order to use that icon. It's a quick download - but be careful to uncheck items you don't want with the download.
19:50:10 PeggyG that authentic audience makes such a difference!
19:50:36 connect2jamie I'm using itunes on my pc too.
19:50:42 PeggyG what a great example Bob!
19:50:56 cheryloakes50 thanks for all the help, what a great audience, participatory culture.
19:51:09 bobsprankle http://chronicle.com/article/The-Case-for-Play/126382
19:51:49 charlene PC.....Oh man! I feel like my inability to hear is taking over your show! Can't fond real player speaker. Keep going...I'll just read!
19:52:04 PeggyG love that thought about kids playing "teacher"! That's what started me on my path to becoming a teacher! :-)
19:52:45 cstanley @Charlene -under EdTechTalk A in the right-hand panel top, it's the blue icon with the play triangle. Are you not seeing that?
19:52:52 PeggyG Charlene-maybe you should try a different browser?? everything might magically start to work
19:53:14 connect2jamie @peggy me too! I used to turn all my books at home into "textbooks" and torture...ahem...I mean TEACH the little girl next door! LOL
19:53:33 PeggyG me too!
19:54:06 PeggyG Bob you always ask the greatest questions!!! :-)
19:54:09 cstanley I have computer club on Thursdays afternoons. The late bus comes around 4:00pm, and I have to badger the kids to quit open applications and log off. They don't want to go.
19:54:32 PeggyG awesome cstanley!!! A teacher's dream!
19:54:34 bobsprankle <blush> thanks peggy :)
19:54:43 connect2jamie @carol isn't that a good feeling when they don't want to go!
19:54:47 charlene I have tried all 3 icons & nothing. I will try a different browser. Wish me luck! Bye for now!
19:54:58 bobsprankle good luck charlene
19:54:59 cheryloakes50 good luck, charlene
19:55:06 PeggyG crossing my fingers for charlene!
19:55:33 cstanley Sometimes I'm really tired by Thursday afternoons, but the kids in club are so eager, I muster the energy.
19:55:40 PeggyG the kids are great with the flipcams!
19:56:25 alicebarr (SEEDlings) Flipcams were made for kids!
19:56:34 cstanley It would be great for modeling if Jen could make some videos of the kids using the technology - videos to model for teachers.
19:56:35 connect2jamie I'm using flipcams w/ 3rd graders in the library tomorrow. Should be fun!
19:56:44 cheryloakes50 Yes, for sure, flip cams make it so instant
19:56:50 alicebarr (SEEDlings) @connect2jamie what's your project?
19:56:53 PeggyG it would be great!
19:57:57 connect2jamie Some of our GT kids wrote plays about the solar system, and we're filming them.
19:58:57 cstanley I recently viewed a video of a collaborative story being written in a Google doc - the teacher used Camtasia to record the whole process of the document being edited. It was quite a good idea, I thought.
19:59:13 Debbarrows2 I love that you called it a "Celebration"
19:59:15 alicebarr (SEEDlings) Sounds fun!
19:59:16 PeggyG that is a very good idea!
19:59:23 alicebarr (SEEDlings) Me too Deb!
19:59:49 PeggyG do you have a link for that video @cstanley? would love to see it
20:00:20 cheryloakes50 http://www.livescribe.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/LDApp.woa/wa/MLSOverviewPag... This is from our high school english teacher english class.
20:00:38 PeggyG Does Jen have a website with any of these examples available for us to see?
20:00:43 cheryloakes50 English teacher has a student take notes in class, then publishes for her students
20:01:25 bobsprankle http://mail.msad35.net/~jbogard/
20:01:36 bobsprankle http://3bogard.blogspot.com/
20:01:37 PeggyG oh thank you!!!
20:02:03 cstanley will search for it, Peggy.
20:02:23 PeggyG I'm sharing these links on our Mini-geekfest this coming week! Love these examples!
20:02:44 cheryloakes50 Peggy, what is a mini geek fest?
20:03:35 PeggyG that is a monthly Elluminate show I do with a colleague in AZ--kind of like a mini-smackdown :-) sharing great web 2.0 resources and tools for classroom use
20:03:47 cheryloakes50 OH, what a great idea!
20:04:09 alicebarr (SEEDlings) Wow Peggy Cool idea!
20:04:49 PeggyG it's always lots of fun! everyone in the session can share if they want to--very informal and spontaneous but I always come prepared with lots of favorites in case others don't take the mic
20:05:04 connect2jamie A mini geek fest! Love it!
20:05:05 alicebarr (SEEDlings) Very fun!
20:05:44 cheryloakes50 Hi leeannep! welcome
20:05:59 connect2jamie Thanks for the links above. Helps me to visualizehow the pen is used in class/how it works a little bit better
20:06:05 Debbarrows2 LOL Alice
20:06:18 PeggyG aren't they great links!! a picture is worth a thousand words :-)
20:06:19 connect2jamie interesting point, Alice.
20:06:46 PeggyG random thoughts from doodling :-)
20:06:49 connect2jamie Might turn out like RSAnimate!
20:07:01 cheryloakes50 yes rsaanimate
20:07:11 Debbarrows2 Anyone have one they can try it with
20:07:11 connect2jamie I'm a big doodler.
20:07:25 cheryloakes50 Hi shelia, we are live
20:07:34 Sheila Hi there!
20:07:39 connect2jamie Hi Sheila!
20:07:51 PeggyG hi Sheila!!! so excited to see you! are you back from Belize?
20:07:56 cstanley I remember reading that doodling accesses some part of the brain when you are taking notes that helps you retain the information better.
20:08:16 Sheila Yes, back from launch and Belize! :)
20:08:29 cheryloakes50 Did you have a great time?
20:08:42 PeggyG I don't doodle but I take lots of notes because just writing things down helps me to stay focused and remember things better even if I never look at them again
20:08:56 PeggyG Fantastic Sheila!!!
20:09:05 Sheila Absolutely! Launch was emotional and Belize I shared with a teacher from my school!
20:09:32 cstanley @Peggy, now I try to type them into my Google Doc that I have open during the webinars - great placed to record links as well.
20:09:42 connect2jamie I do find that I do better if I take notes by hand in meetings, etc. I don't remember things as well if I'm on a computer. Probably my age & early training.
20:09:42 alicebarr (SEEDlings) Me too peggy. I almost write the conversation but then don't look at it later
20:09:55 PeggyG I do the same thing @cstanley but I usually use Evernote
20:10:39 cstanley I heard you guys raving about Evernote,but I haven't had time to investigate it.
20:10:55 cheryloakes50 I am starting to share with my HS juniors.
20:10:59 cheryloakes50 evernote that is
20:11:12 alicebarr (SEEDlings) i <3 evernote!
20:11:14 PeggyG it is a fantastic tool! all of the links are clickable in it and you can include video, images and much more
20:11:34 PeggyG and I can access the notes from my iphone or any computer anywhere
20:11:38 alicebarr (SEEDlings) I take pictures of whiteboards and store it
20:11:40 connect2jamie I really need to explore evernote. Haven't used it.
20:11:56 Sheila Guess I need to too!
20:12:03 PeggyG love the thought of creating movies on imovie from the pen
20:12:04 alicebarr (SEEDlings) can use online, phone, and app
20:12:36 Debbarrows2 she gets a free registration doesn't she if she is presenting
20:12:36 cstanley I should put in for PD time and see if I can get my district to send me up to your conference.
20:12:38 PeggyG we are your witnesses!!
20:13:03 PeggyG I hope you'll stream that session!!!
20:13:06 alicebarr (SEEDlings) @cstanley http://www.actem.org
20:13:20 bobsprankle will def. podcast it
20:13:21 alicebarr (SEEDlings) SEEDlings does a Geek of the Week lunch! :)
20:13:24 PeggyG powerful statement about Livescribes and IWBs
20:13:26 cheryloakes50 http://www.livescribe.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/LDApp.woa/wa/MLSOverviewPag...
20:13:41 PeggyG fantastic Bob!
20:13:50 cstanley @Alice - it would be like coming home - well, it would be -literally.
20:13:53 PeggyG I remember the Geek of the Week live stream last year :-)
20:14:13 cheryloakes50 thanks Peggy, we try and stream that each year!
20:14:17 alicebarr (SEEDlings) @cstanley Yup and best time of the year
20:16:26 PeggyG Have you seen this? new Livescribe K-12 Blog from Tim Fahlberg (Mathcasts) http://www.livescribek12.com/
20:17:02 PeggyG LivescribeK12 has a twitter site too :-)
20:17:18 connect2jamie @peggy Wow! I can't wait to look over that math site. Looks interesting.
20:18:10 PeggyG that blog is about all kinds of uses for the pen in education but I learned about it from Tim Fahlberg :-)
20:20:00 PeggyG what an amazing tool!!! these examples are so motivating!
20:21:55 PeggyG woo hoo!! geek of the week time!
20:22:05 cheryloakes50 Yes,
20:22:36 leeannep so sad i've missed most of this - tech problems at this end - I can only get into chat
20:22:51 bobsprankle http://www.techrepublic.com/article/how-to-add-narration-to-powerpoint-p...
20:23:11 PeggyG so sorry leeannep! hopefully you'll be able to listen to the recording later
20:23:18 connect2jamie I'm sorry you've had problems w/ audio @leeannep!
20:23:26 bobsprankle http://livewithlivescribe.edublogs.org/
20:23:43 PeggyG great link!!
20:23:45 bobsprankle http://www.pics4learning.com/
20:24:07 leeannep my tech guy at new school is on it. Hope to participate live next time
20:24:50 alice barr Ok back
20:25:03 cstanley Welcome back, Alice.
20:25:13 alice barr thanks
20:25:13 cheryloakes50 http://bookbuilder.cast.org/
20:25:21 Debbarrows2 Pics4learning loves to have teachers upload pictures too
20:25:30 cstanley I have a ton of photos I could share.
20:25:41 PeggyG the citation feature is really valuable!
20:26:14 alice barr http://hccweb2.org/web2/
20:26:17 PeggyG I'll bet there are a lot of people doing the 365 group photos could add pictures to this site
20:26:24 cheryloakes50 I have some photos at pics for learning
20:26:25 leeannep pics4learning will go viral at my school
20:26:43 alice barr sign in as guest
20:27:18 PeggyG pics4learning should be an easy site to get unblocked if you have issues with that in your school
20:27:57 PeggyG that is such a cool site Alice!
20:28:26 connect2jamie Love this week's geeks of the week!
20:28:29 PeggyG great use for Moodle!
20:29:06 cstanley I understand the app is only $5.00
20:29:12 bobsprankle http://www.zite.com/
20:29:42 PeggyG wow! how exciting! need to check that out online since I don't have an iPad yet
20:29:52 cstanley Are you really-Cheryl and Alice? Really?????
20:30:13 cheryloakes50 I am ordering mine online
20:30:18 cheryloakes50 in my sleeping bag
20:30:31 cstanley I heard there should not be as long lines since Walmart, Best Buy and others are carrying the product.
20:30:34 connect2jamie :-)
20:30:38 cstanley Very funny, Cheryl.
20:30:49 PeggyG wonder if Zite works on an iphone?
20:31:11 Debbarrows2 I've tried the other store last time and no...
20:31:19 cstanley I would get it at Best Buy and get points.
20:31:26 PeggyG very wise Cheryl!
20:31:28 Debbarrows2 I tried stores in ME, NH NY! when the first ones come out
20:31:41 Debbarrows2 The thrill is in the chase go to the Apple Store
20:31:49 PeggyG so true Deb!
20:31:56 cstanley really? Wow! That's in[i]credible.
20:32:11 Debbarrows2 I bet BB won't have them
20:32:18 Debbarrows2 Yep
20:32:30 Debbarrows2 I kept calling and calling and getting no...
20:32:30 PeggyG Steve Jobs is brilliant!
20:32:40 Debbarrows2 MAll
20:32:49 Sheila Go to the store!
20:32:50 Debbarrows2 I'll wait in line with you on my way home
20:32:50 cstanley [i]I have $75 dollars in points - but I may go for a LiveScribe instead of an iPad. There are rumors that my school might - might, I stress - be getting some iPads for us.
20:33:14 Sheila Adventure and challenge all in one
20:33:15 Debbarrows2 You could start spreading the word that BB doesn't have them.
20:33:15 PeggyG camp out Alice!
20:33:23 alice barr :)
20:33:33 alice barr I just cannot decide!
20:33:36 cstanley [i]It's pelting, pouring rain here in CT. Are you guys having snow or rain?
20:33:49 Sheila nothing yet
20:33:50 alice barr I guess if I don't get one tomorrow I'll just come home and order it
20:33:50 PeggyG I think it's worth taking a chance Alice
20:33:54 Debbarrows2 This has been great - can't wait to try it tomorrow
20:34:14 alice barr Ok Peggy you are wise! I'm going with your advice
20:34:17 Sheila (Get one before Cheryl! ;) )
20:34:22 PeggyG what a fabulous show Jen and Mary!! Thank you so much for sharing your tips and passion about the pen!
20:34:23 connect2jamie Thanks all! Great links and info tonight!
20:34:37 cstanley [i]Thanks, everyone.
20:34:54 PeggyG thanks all!!
20:34:54 Sheila Thank you all! Will catch the beginning on the podcast!
20:35:07 bobsprankle Thanks all!
20:35:07 PeggyG bye Sheila! Can't wait to hear your stories!
20:35:13 Sheila Alice should!
20:35:15 connect2jamie Good night!
20:35:22 Sheila Night all!
20:53:21 Sheila Hi DS!
20:57:33 Sheila Oh, surprises! Mystery . . . .
21:05:36 ds Hey Sheila
21:08:22 Sheila :)
21:09:39 Sheila Hi CathyE
21:10:52 ds HI Cathy
21:11:35 Cathy E Hello - happy Thursday!
21:12:11 ds thanks--and to you!
21:16:48 Sheila Isn't it nice to meet ol' friends face to face!
21:16:56 ds it is indeed
21:17:08 ds hi cstanley
21:17:26 Sheila Hi Carolyn!
21:17:29 cstanley hi, just stopped in for a moment - saw Sheila's tweet
21:17:45 ds excellent, welcome
21:17:50 cstanley What were you doing in Belize, Sheila. I think I 'm out of the loop.
21:19:15 Sheila I take teachers to southern Belize as part of a graduate course at UNH. We collaborate with teachers at a workshop then go to their schools.
21:19:26 Sheila It's during our school vacation.
21:19:56 cstanley I enjoyed the Seedlings show tonight. I am not familiar at all with the LiveScribe pen. I am sorry I missed Mitch Resnick on Classroom 2.0 - I'll have to catch the archive later. Oh Sheila, that sounds exciting. What an experience!
21:19:59 Sheila Thinking of webcasting about it with some of the participants this year.
21:20:27 cstanley @Sheila - that would be most informative and interesting.
21:20:44 Sheila Too much going on tonight. I'm catching both of those on podcasts later.
21:21:21 Sheila @cstanley When are you heading back up north?
21:22:01 cstanley I think I'd better go make my salad up for tomorrow's lunch - going to skim quickly through Twitter and try to go to bed. If I didn't discipline myself, I'd be on this from the time I got home from school until I literally fall asleep sitting bolt upright.
