21:19:06 Art Gelwicks Pottstown, PA.
21:19:06 WOScholar @mjmontagne - If Jessica Simpson stays home, I expect that as well. Prefer it to be my Bucaneers instead of Giants, but gotta go with the Boys now.

21:19:24 WOScholar We can talk Twitter trash when the weekend is over and the game is nigh.

21:25:17 Sarah S @ColleenK - great! Can't wait to meet you.
21:25:18 sendkathy I think its easier for teachers
21:25:22 cheryloakes wow show 57 i like weebly too!
21:25:23 CathyN weebly gets blocked in my district @sendkathy
21:25:29 paula wikis are easy to create
21:25:29 Vicki Davis @CathyN there are some people scared of blogs.
21:25:33 sharonp depends on the content
21:25:34 sendkathy ACathyN, why?
21:25:41 Vicki Davis The thing about blogs is the archivability and searchability.
21:25:50 CathyN @sendkathy good qstn
21:26:01 jepcke Wikis are my 'easy' website builder of choice
21:26:05 sendkathy OK I thought maybe I should know something!
21:26:09 sharonp but wikis and google docs are exportable
21:26:10 Vicki Davis I think it depends on what you want to do.
21:26:18 jomcleay Hi Fiona,
21:26:22 Vicki Davis It is important to start with "What is the curricular objective"
21:26:24 CathyN of course this tchr is so afraaid of everything
21:26:26 fiona_banjer Hi Jo, made it, virus check started as I logged in and crashed the lot!
21:26:31 sharonp HI David!
21:26:32 Vicki Davis Or what is the classroom objective.
21:26:43 JenniferW Hey Vinnie -- Welcome DJ
21:26:45 megormi david is in the room...
21:26:50 paula for now - I need to start with the easiest to get them caught
21:26:53 lizbdavis Wikispaces has a pretty short learning curve
21:26:59 Vicki Davis When I didn't know anything and walked up to David Warlick at a conference and asked what I should use he said, "Well, what is your curricular objective, that is where you should start."
21:27:08 djakes hello Sharon
21:27:11 jomcleay good comment Vicki
21:27:13 Vicki Davis And I think we need to encourage teachers to get to that point.
21:27:13 sharonp Depends on amount of control one wants on teh webpage - wikis don't allow a lot of layout or design changes
21:27:13 jepcke @lizbdavis I agree about wikispaces
21:27:25 djakes Hello @megormi
21:27:25 CathyN I did a parent workshop Jen
21:27:31 paula Wikispaces is my tool of choice with the reluctant educators but I am always open
21:27:37 CathyN went very well
21:27:38 WOScholar Hillary leads in New Hampshire by 2% over Obama if anyone is interested (2300 votes).
21:27:38 megormi hi dave!
21:27:42 jomcleay blogging can be incoroporated int lots of cuuricular ojectives
21:27:45 lizbdavis @sharon Yes - which is what makes it easier, but not as pretty.
21:27:50 ryanbretag @Vicki Davis advice that more people need to take
21:27:53 Sue Waters (Australia) the trouble is for new people it takes a long time to move from learning how to use the tools to using in educational context
21:27:55 sharonp so it depends on what the teacher really wants - but I am with Paula- wikispaces
21:28:09 jepcke @sharonp sometimes all that design gets in the way of the objectives
21:28:18 sharonp welcome to the all those visiting us from down under
21:28:24 Vicki Davis I think that wetpaint is great for the uber-beginner, however a lot of features are left out -- no table of contents and no adding pages on the fly.
21:28:31 CathyN i talked to her today abt blogging w/ her class too--she sad only w/ advanced class would she consider it
21:28:37 fiona_banjer Hello America! Loving summer holidays :O)
21:28:40 lizbdavis @Vicki you were so brave to walk right up to Dave Warlick. Cool
21:28:43 Cathy E Oh- that sounds like a common problem :(
21:28:44 Vicki Davis However, wetpaint has a great discussion feature and I love how they have the picture of contributors on the left that is bigger.
21:28:46 WOScholar What does Tom find the easiest thing to integrate with primary teachers?
21:28:54 Vicki Davis @lizbdavis -- I DIDN'T KNOW WHO HE WAS!
21:29:00 Sue Waters (Australia) @fiona are you Mrs_Banjer?
21:29:03 Vicki Davis I didn't know I should be scared.
21:29:06 fiona_banjer Yes, Hi Sue
21:29:06 CathyN @vickidavis LOL
21:29:07 lizbdavis @Vicki Of course now you are just as famous ;)
21:29:10 atruger LOL Vivki
21:29:13 jepcke @vickidavis LOL
21:29:15 sharonp @jepcke - I really want ot be able to focus on content when I work on a webpage - not so much on design - but some teachers want that control
21:29:21 Linda Nitsche @vickidavis:D
21:29:22 sroseman What apps do primary teachers like and use?
21:29:26 Sue Waters (Australia) Tried to add ou to my twiter stream won't let me can you add me?
21:29:26 Vicki Davis @lizdavis - I'm not famous -- I'm a mother of three, wife of 1, teacher of 100.
21:29:32 cheryloakes wow show 57 liz right about vicki!
21:29:34 derrallg Davic W is so approachable
21:29:36 kkozloski I am presenting on Why Wiki tomorrow and found some good stuff on wikispaces about it. I put some of the resources together here - it's a small start but might be something to get your teacher thinking http://web20fored.wikispaces.com/WhyWiki
21:29:37 CathyN @vicki we should all be so brave
21:29:39 atruger @Tom Not anymore
21:29:45 fiona_banjer Yes
21:29:46 JSigler @CathyN I think blogs make great web pages. I did mine on wordpress. http://siglersite.com
21:29:48 Vicki Davis @derrallg -- David has my loyalty b/c of how he treated me when I was "nothing"
21:29:49 Vicki Davis ;=-)
21:29:49 Linda Nitsche My emoticons aren't working!
21:29:58 lizbdavis @Vicki you are famous to me. (In a good way!)
21:30:12 cheryloakes wow show 57 I am sorry Linda, you will have to do old fashioned way :-0
21:30:17 Vicki Davis @lizbdavis -- Well, since we're distant cousins (probably -- ha ha)
21:30:19 derrallg @vicki I rmember your climb also
21:30:28 CathyN @jsigler :)
21:30:32 Vicki Davis Been having trouble blogging lately.
21:30:34 lizbdavis @Are you in Camilla GA?
21:30:42 Vicki Davis @lizbdavis -- Yes.
21:30:44 megormi Tom in a perfect world, what tech support do you feel every building should have?
21:30:57 Vicki Davis In the midle of nowhere. But I swear Johnny Depp was in my town the other day.
21:31:02 Sue Waters (Australia) good way to get it back Vicki is to tell your readers that Mojo is struggling
21:31:03 atruger @Meg great question
21:31:06 lizbdavis @Vicki many years ago I did a bunch of Tom Snyyder PD workshops there.
21:31:11 JenniferW Will ask it Meg -- thanks
21:31:12 djakes @megormi. Buildings should have desktop, network ,and instructional support
21:31:16 Vicki Davis @lizbdavis -- For who?
21:31:16 nzchrissy No he's in NZ at the moment surfing
21:31:26 CathyN @Tom I turned down 2 tech specialist jos this past summer felt the need to stay in lib
21:31:40 jepcke @djakes, but not in the same person!
21:31:40 WOScholar @Tom What does Tom find the easiest thing to integrate with primary teachers?
21:31:50 cheryloakes wow show 57 Cathyn I think lib/tech/media is a great spot,
21:31:50 mjmontagne that is how I try to operate...one teacher at a time...
21:31:51 djakes no, of course not
21:31:56 Art Gelwicks Good for you CathyN. Stay where you feel the need.
21:31:58 djakes 3 people at least
21:32:07 CathyN I thnk the LMS can help tchrs just as much--be their catalyst and support system
21:32:17 Linda Nitsche @CathyN Stay where your heart is!
21:32:19 jepcke Some administrators think it's ok to have 1 person
21:32:27 jomcleay that is so true tom. How does learning happen. Lots of research on that
21:32:34 paula I'm working with 18 lib/media/sp now - Web 2.o tools
21:32:40 djakes @cathyN...I disagree
21:32:48 jomcleay a la blooms revised taxonomy
21:32:48 cheryloakes wow show 57 I think the librarian is even more the catalyst since you are not seen at the techie
21:32:48 atruger @Tom YES!!!!
21:33:01 jomcleay Hi Jess from Warnambool
21:33:02 CathyN @djakes--that i shouldnt be a support ?
21:33:10 djakes thats a disadvantage to both technology areas and library areas
21:33:13 jess_technolote hi jo! fancy meeting you here... ;-)
21:33:19 CathyN how so
21:33:19 jomcleay lol
21:33:25 Sue Waters (Australia) Hi Jess
21:33:30 cindy p ....try being that for the district
21:33:40 Art Gelwicks @djakes If that's what you have resources for you have to find a way to make it work.
21:33:43 cheryloakes wow show 57 45 in chat room is really taxing the chat, keep up the good work!
21:33:48 WOScholar @Tom What does Tom find the easiest thing to integrate with primary teachers?
21:33:53 Durff how many in your chat room now?
21:33:56 djakes because you have to have people dedicated to all of those tasks
21:34:00 jess_technolote Hi Sue - I left a comment on your blog yesterday. great post on flickr and picasa
21:34:03 djakes not just librarians doing everything
21:34:05 Linda Nitsche Yes, we have 1, count that one, ed tech person for the district of over 4000
21:34:12 cheryloakes wow show 57 tech support people need to have ed background , here, here
21:34:27 CathyN @djakes ok--yes i could agree w/ that
21:34:32 JenniferW Our HS librarian does not want to DO anything -- which has become terribly frustrating
21:34:34 glovely @WOSCholar - I can answer that question for me - VISUALs
21:34:36 jepcke @tom I totally agree!
21:34:40 CathyN I dont want to replace a tech spec but be another support system
21:34:41 sendkathy that makes sense Cheryl
21:34:43 Art Gelwicks Admirable sentiment Cheryl, but difficult to obtain.
21:34:51 Sue Waters (Australia) Yes Jess I saw the comment and have respondend back thanks for reading my blog
21:34:56 CathyN frm the perspective of lib where i can show info literacy
21:35:07 WOScholar My COT has said all along that his job is more curriculum than technology because the equipment is driven by the curricular needs. Now he has me as an IT to give him more detailed direction.
21:35:12 CathyN talk about cc and copyright
21:35:33 CathyN but also generate excitement about using 21st century tools
21:35:42 djakes @CathyN. I think that is exactly right. That, in my opinion, is a mission of a library, along with perhaps network literacy. That should be the focus, not boxes and wires, etc.
21:35:42 WOScholar @glovely Care to elaborate via email [email protected]?
21:35:43 CathyN and ENGAGE students
21:35:45 Art Gelwicks OR...tech administration who will listen to the needs of the teaching staff and find ways to help rather than just fix the tech.
21:35:50 jepcke Teachers rspond well to people with ed background, they feel you 'have been there' and you have more credibility with them
21:36:03 megormi Thanks Tom, I wish this type of tech support was everywhere. We need to support teaching and learning! Thanks
21:36:05 JenniferW @WOScholar -- I will ask that -- thanks for posting the question
21:36:16 Linda Nitsche So I just keep suggesting projects that fit with curricular goals during team meetings- it's working slowly
21:36:17 ryanbretag @cathyn what is the role of instructional technology facilitators, coordinators, etc?
21:36:21 Durff can we exchange this guy for our IT person like yesterday?
21:36:23 fiona_banjer Yay for Jo!!
21:36:24 Vicki Davis I'm IT and Teacher. It is tough being either.
21:36:27 traceymcgrath I am the person that teaches 350 students, Manages the network, provides tech support, provides professional development and the biggest challenge is always time management.
21:36:30 Art Gelwicks @jepcke It's unfortunate that's the case though.
21:36:33 lizbdavis Has Tom been reading my blog - I've been thinking the same things about teaching teachers to fish. Finding constructivist ways to do PD.
21:36:35 CathyN @ryan we dont have them where I am
21:36:40 CathyN im it
21:36:41 Art Gelwicks You go Tracy!
21:36:46 jomcleay Vicki and Tom that's what blogs are good for
21:36:47 sharonp Reflection is one of the key features in our new education program in Quebec - which is wonderful because web 2 environments are perfect for that
21:36:48 ryanbretag but we are speaking in terms of "ideal" world
21:36:49 jeffmason @Tom one person for tech support, one person for educational support
21:36:52 WOScholar Thanks Jen
21:36:57 Linda Nitsche @traceymcgrath Never enough time!
21:37:04 CathyN but i have a handful being trailblazers for me
21:37:17 jepcke I've worked with some tech people with good intentions bt not clue about education
21:37:20 thekyleguy Hi Dean
21:37:28 JenniferW @jeffmason -- is that a possibility??? my school -- right now -- it would be no. Can -- would public schools pay for 2 people??
21:37:29 sharonp reflection is built into al of the subject areas - at elementary and secondary levels
21:37:34 cheryloakes wow show 57 liz, what is a good way to have constructivist PD? what are you doing?
21:37:38 JenniferW or more??
21:37:43 Art Gelwicks I've worked with some educators with good intentions but not a clue about technology. :)
21:37:49 atruger @liz Please share more
21:37:50 lizbdavis I am really fortunate to have 2 tech "assistants" who deal with the printer problems etc.
21:37:51 jomcleay that archiving ability of blogs make it possible to reflect on how far yu have come in the skill of reflecting as well
21:37:55 fiona_banjer I was librarian and IT/tech person last semester in primary school. IT issues took over library. Balance is not easy.
21:37:56 Art Gelwicks Seems the sword cuts both ways.
21:37:58 JenniferW and how do we convince them that we CAN NOT -- and should not be doing it all
21:38:03 jepcke @Art I still work with those people, but I'm trying :)
21:38:07 jeffmason @jenniferw probably not, but can we afford not to
21:38:13 sendkathy Sounds like techies are from Mars and Teachers are from Venus
21:38:17 WOScholar @Durff. I'll make it easier for you. Come to work for us in Texas.
21:38:20 JenniferW wearing 3 hats is NOT good for them -- and exhausting for me
21:38:23 atruger @liz blog addy?
21:38:29 CathyN i give a "hardware" issue no mre than five min thenits a workorder fro an itinerant person
21:38:40 sharonp blogs and wikis can easily become cheap and easy eportfolios to be used over time as an archive and as a repository of artifacts
21:38:43 lizbdavis @cheryl I"ve been thinking about ways to structure the learning so that we don't do so much hand holding - no directions sheets - more exploration. And an explicit discussion about the way we are learning (meta)
21:38:45 traceymcgrath But despite all that I try to do to bring our teachers into the 21st century. I still have classroom teachers asking me to type a web address and log into their web based applications ;-P
21:38:48 cheryloakes wow show 57 good way to do this cathyn
21:38:51 CathyN @sendkathy LOL
21:38:55 Art Gelwicks @jepcke Same here. That's all we can do. Everyone benefits if we stop telling each other HOW they should do something and ask WHAT they want to do.
21:39:01 lizbdavis www.edtechpower.blogspot.com (last week)
21:39:02 jepcke @sendkathy where are teacher techies from?
21:39:16 cheryloakes wow show 57 @liz, we provide a wiki for the participants to take the notes and make the directions.
21:39:18 sendkathy Good Question!
21:39:20 CathyN our district IT will not work on anything BUT laser printers
21:39:25 fiona_banjer @traceymcgrath I feel your pain ;)
21:39:29 atruger @liz THANKS
21:39:35 Art Gelwicks @tracy There's a point when you have to let them swim on their own...and if they sink, well...
21:39:36 CathyN networked laser ptinters
21:39:39 jepcke @art I agree but some don't know what they want, but I keep pushing things out to them, something's got to speak to them
21:39:43 lizbdavis @Cherly love that idea - have tham write up the directions. Brilliant
21:39:44 Durff what blogs do we all use?
21:39:53 Vicki Davis classblogmeister
21:39:54 Sue Waters (Australia) Edublogs
21:39:56 Durff I use blogmeister with kids
21:39:57 Vicki Davis blogger w/ my 9th graders
21:39:57 atruger @Cheryl What a great idea
21:39:59 sendkathy wordpress
21:40:01 fiona_banjer wetpaint, edublogs
21:40:02 dgoodman 21classes
21:40:03 CathyN edublogs for now
21:40:03 Vicki Davis ning blog
21:40:04 sendkathy and blogger
21:40:06 sendkathy and weebly
21:40:06 reggie edublogs
21:40:08 atruger blogger
21:40:11 Sarah S Edublogs for kids
21:40:12 cpbw edublogs and ning
21:40:13 sendkathy oh and ning
21:40:14 sharonp I think my only reservation about blogs are the lack of portability
21:40:17 glovely wetpaint
21:40:17 JenniferW I like wikis --- more than blogs
21:40:18 cpbw edublog and ning
21:40:24 derrallg blogmeister
21:40:24 lizbdavis The title of my blog was called "Diving in - Learning in the deep end"
21:40:28 shareski walled gardens stink
21:40:36 Linda Nitsche Ning Blog and Moodle blog
21:40:39 Art Gelwicks @jepcke Find the one painful thing that they haven't solved and find a creative tech solution. It's amazing how quick they respond when something's in it for them.
21:40:40 sharonp for example - elgg's eduspaces is dying
21:40:44 JenniferW you can have reflection on wikis
21:40:45 cheryloakes wow show 57 love the name Liz
21:40:47 Art Gelwicks Why shareski?
21:40:48 Sue Waters (Australia) Agreed blackboard is not bloging :)
21:40:49 Durff ning - are blogs moderated there?
21:40:49 djakes @shareski. Simplistic view, Dean
21:40:51 CathyN @tom why do u love edublogs--ive had beefs
21:40:51 jomcleay I have used both Tom very similar to edublogs
21:41:00 jepcke @art good point
21:41:01 dgoodman I also prefer wikis over blogs
21:41:05 Vicki Davis @Durff -- No not moderated but you can have a private ning and handle things there.
21:41:17 cpbw drupple would offer that
21:41:19 Vicki Davis I like blogs for personal opinion and reflection and wikis for fact and cooperative learning.
21:41:24 lizbdavis @durff in a private ning site you can determine who can see each blog post
21:41:29 cpbw to keep blogs in one spot
21:41:33 Sue Waters (Australia) people find it easier to identify initially with wikis but longer term gains are more with blogs
21:41:34 CathyN @vicki EXCELLENT separation!!
21:41:38 JSigler @shareski I like walled gardens to give my parents a sense of security.
21:41:42 sharonp It really depends on what the content will be when choosing what online learning space one uses
21:41:46 shareski @djakes....not really, if you want to write, you don't need a blog...if you want to blog, walled gardens are too fake
21:41:51 shareski there's nothing to be afraid of
21:41:59 derrallg @vicki I took that distinction you made to heart and I agree
21:42:02 WOScholar Blogmeister with students, but we are looking at going to locally hosted Wordpress MU so they can also create digital portfolios.
21:42:02 CathyN @shareski yes
21:42:03 jepcke @sharonp Good point
21:42:03 fiona_banjer Hi Alex, how were the online students?
21:42:10 sharonp @shareski - not all parents are convinced about that
21:42:14 Art Gelwicks Try convincing parents and administration of that fact shareski.
21:42:15 djakes @shareski. It all depends on your climate and culture of your school district, everyone is different, and permits different things
21:42:18 JenniferW PLEASE remember -- to view MORE of the CHAT -- expandyour window
21:42:22 shareski @sharonp....that's why we have to show them
21:42:23 JenniferW 3 icon from the bottom RIGHT
21:42:31 jomcleay Hi Alec\
21:42:33 shareski lots of parents do get it
21:42:35 CathyN but these same parents are oblivious to all the illegal downloading of music and a0-okay w it
21:42:41 sendkathy @Jen, really I just expanded because it's going so fast
21:42:44 courosa hey all
21:42:47 djakes so, if it is a walled garden, and thats it, better than nothing
21:42:56 jess_technolote maybe people like wikis better first as they eem to be less threatening because they rely on more than one person contributing, therefore someone new to it knows they aren't the only one?
21:42:56 Art Gelwicks Shareski, who's reading the student blogs?
21:42:57 shareski @djakes...why settle
21:43:02 lizbdavis I'm finding it easier to start with a walled garden. I'm hoping to oen them up later
21:43:03 cheryloakes wow show 57 chat and podcast will be available at www.edtechtalk.com/womenofweb2 by Thurs. with an announcement on Twitter.
21:43:04 fiona_banjer Hi Chrissy
21:43:05 djakes you many not have any choice
21:43:10 sharonp @shareski - I agree - too much fear is out there, but if a teacher is willing to start behind a walled garden, eventuallly they may migrate out once they feel comfortable
21:43:13 JSigler @shareski My third graders cut their teeth well on Think.com could visit lots of other pages around the world.
21:43:16 JenniferW Start as a walled garden - and then take down the walls??? Option??
21:43:16 jepcke how do I expand the chat window?
21:43:17 CathyN I knw sme teachers who would prefer a walled garden but i feelits a little fake too
21:43:20 thekyleguy @Art - students read student blogs
21:43:21 Vicki Davis We blog publicly and have had NO problem I mean NONE -- they blog anonymously on blogger.
21:43:32 Durff jpecke third icon from right
21:43:32 nzchrissy Audio keeps dropping and I keep getting bounced out of the chat.
21:43:37 djakes We use Blackboard and its been huge for us
21:43:42 Art Gelwicks It's not settling...it's easing in. @kyle - Got that...but that works in a walled garden as well.
21:43:42 fiona_banjer OK in Brisbane
21:43:42 derrallg @lizbdavis but the students can get frustrated with lack of audience
21:43:45 sharonp I had everything behind a walled garden two years and went completely outside the walls last year
21:43:46 shareski .......agree but I fight tooth and nail to keep it open...haven't had many resisters believe it or not
21:43:47 djakes not just blogs, everything...
21:43:48 cheryloakes wow show 57 sorry nzchrissy, what browser?
21:43:48 CathyN @jepcke that icon will pop it out and you can drag the corners
21:43:57 jeffmason @Tom I'm from Pensacola FL. Look into the Florida Master Digital Educator program http://etc.usf.edu/mde/ I've applied.
21:43:59 Art Gelwicks Seems we're talking deep end of the pool versus the steps.
21:44:05 jepcke thanks Durff and CathyN
21:44:07 nzchrissy firefox @cheryloakes
21:44:12 sendkathy I think there's more than one way to write a blog
21:44:19 JSigler I had a couple parents object to having their 3rd grader use a social network.
21:44:26 Vicki Davis @sendkathy -- Yes, there is more than one way to rwrite a blog.
21:44:29 Durff Art that is how i explain deep web
21:44:30 cheryloakes wow show 57 hm, that is what I am using too. sorry again
21:44:30 JenniferW SendKathy -- talk some more
21:44:37 Vicki Davis Of course, everything starts off with what is our objective -- what is our purpose.
21:44:39 shareski why use the internet if it's closed? seems like a waste of time
21:44:44 sharonp @shareski - that is fantastic for you! We have one school board here where I live that is ridiculously closed .... beyond the pale! everything - wiks, blog, google docs, social networking sites, animot, you name it
21:44:49 cpbw not me 3rd grade parents are ok with social networking
21:44:53 Vicki Davis Digital citizenship and students knowing how to be professionals is so important.
21:44:57 thekyleguy lack of collaborating/conversation
21:44:59 Durff gotta start somewhere dean
21:45:07 CathyN its about educating the parents too
21:45:17 atruger Admin need to show support for tech for the changes to stick
21:45:19 jomcleay @shareski I do so agree with you
21:45:19 lizbdavis @derrallg compared to not doing it a walled garden is cool - once we get going , using ning I think it is pretty easy to open it up. And for each blog post they can set the privacy level
21:45:20 JenniferW my biggest obstacle is not parents --
21:45:23 Art Gelwicks You're comfusing the internet with the social networking space and learning good community skills. It's like learning to drive...you don't just drop them on the expressway do you?
21:45:26 JenniferW my biggest obstacle is admin
21:45:27 sharonp I talked to their IT consultants and they were soooo conservative .... not willing to explore or opoen up
21:45:30 sendkathy Well, I would not want to disourage a budding blogger by restricting them to certain special standards
21:45:34 cheryloakes wow show 57 evening stevesoko
21:45:41 Durff gotta start where parents are
21:45:41 vvrotny citizenship and students being professional, in all aspects including digital is essential
21:45:45 CathyN imnot sure i want to rant about admin
21:45:47 amykenyon yes-grumbly teachers can be a pain
21:45:47 Vicki Davis Or just Twitter him!!! ;-)
21:45:51 Vicki Davis Chris Lehman is great.
21:45:52 CathyN mine rt now is very supportive
21:45:53 shareski it's all about culture...I realize that and i feel for those with difficulties but I just can't let it go..I have to push people
21:45:58 jepcke Change! A great topic!
21:46:03 CathyN of course her kids are online networking gamers
21:46:04 stevesoko Hi cheryl, out at UCONN basketball just got in
21:46:06 jess_technolote One parent at my school actually asked if the kids still do any 'real' pen and paper work and wasn't all this technology just a distraction?
21:46:06 Vicki Davis If Red Bull were a human it would be Chris, I think.
21:46:09 JenniferW Shareski -- have we booked you on our show yet??? :)
21:46:11 Durff sounds like a commercial
21:46:18 nzchrissy I had a parent ask that too
21:46:21 djakes Chris Lehmann at Edubloggercon: "What is the worst consequence of your best idea?"
21:46:24 Vicki Davis @jess -- "Real.?"
21:46:26 cheryloakes wow show 57 @vicki, great, red bull
21:46:29 CathyN @jess that is a video begging to be made
21:46:35 JenniferW Djakes -- I lost a job-- and it was WORTH it :)
21:46:36 shareski @JenneferW what? to talk about SCrabulous
21:46:39 djakes @JLWagner. Book @shareski, he rocks
21:46:39 Vicki Davis I think that we still need essays, however, blogging is an entirely different form of writing.
21:46:46 Durff "You not going to be able to do your job if your
21:46:52 lizbdavis Act first ask permission later
21:46:52 shareski See you at FETC Tom
21:46:57 jess_technolote @vicki - yeah, that's what I thought.
21:46:59 Durff not ready to lose your job
21:46:59 sharonp Had a meeting with provincial board IT consultants and IT admin - wow, were they in a different position from me - when I mentioned how I had used blogs wikis and skype in the clssroom - the teachers wanted to know more, the admin guys were dead againist them
21:47:05 JenniferW @shareski -- sure - and so much more
21:47:05 CathyN @liz LOVE it
21:47:07 cheryloakes wow show 57 good motto liz, i agree
21:47:13 sendkathy @Vicki, I wasn't aware there was a national standard please share
21:47:14 JSigler There should be different levels of openness depending on the level: elementary, middle school, or high school
21:47:17 djakes @lizdavis. As an Admin, not the way to do it.
21:47:20 jess_technolote @CathyN what a great idea!
21:47:21 Linda Nitsche Come to EduCon2.0 at Chris Lehman's Science Leadership Academy- send your administrator
21:47:28 Cathy E I fight the fight every single day!
21:47:30 Art Gelwicks Pushing people is fine...get them out of their comfort zone. No question there. I'm suggesting have several approaches in your aresenal, jump in the deep end and ease in the shallows. Both ways you learn to swim.
21:47:31 CathyN sometime ignorance is bliss and easier t aask forgiveness afterwards
21:47:46 lizbdavis It is easier to apologize.
21:47:53 paula when we really need confiedentially we move to an online CMS
21:47:56 traceymcgrath I have been a teacher in Philly for 13 years and Chris is one of the few administrators that embraces technology the way he does!
21:47:58 jepcke @lizbdavis Great advice
21:47:59 thekyleguy thats right liz
21:48:06 Vicki Davis @sendkathy -- There isn't a national standard, however, I have objectives for my classroom.
21:48:08 djakes @liz. But to develop systemic change, it has to be a different approach.
21:48:10 thekyleguy start small
21:48:21 shareski 15 minutes a day..says @djakes and @carolyn foote
21:48:25 sharonp unfortunately closed administrators just create a culture where teacher go under the radar
21:48:29 CathyN @kyle and in someplaces that is the only way to start
21:48:32 cpbw it's a big river and you can only dip your cup in once in a while
21:48:33 vvrotny I have found that not getting caught up has been refreshing
21:48:39 Vicki Davis And after working with blogging and my students and also looking at the business world, blogging is a different animal.
21:48:48 djakes @liz. See you in Philly!
21:48:52 cpbw information overload is not the key to success
21:48:54 shareski same on you Tom :/ :D
21:48:56 lizbdavis @djakes I'm so focused on the small picture right now - new school, lots of resistance.
21:49:00 Durff wow, and i feel bad i didn't get to the reader today!
21:49:01 cheryloakes wow show 57 vvrotny, we can keep each other caught up, we don't need to do it all
21:49:02 Cathy E What is Chris Lehman's twitter name
21:49:05 djakes ahhh
21:49:09 jess_technolote also, at the end of last school year we were talking as staff about how to better market the school and one teacher was adamant that education never never changes. It just doesn't according to him. I didn't know what to say I was so flabbergasted.
21:49:10 sendkathy @Vicki, yes I agree one needs objectives
21:49:11 djakes @cathy
21:49:11 JenniferW Chrislehmann
21:49:19 Durff Cathy - you got it
21:49:19 CathyN my princi is very open to a class taking on a wiki or blog, but i cant get a tchr to cmmitt yet
21:49:20 Vicki Davis eg. Where do I hyperlink? What do I hyperlink to? What are valid sources to use in a blog? How do you properly quote someone? What do you do when someone comments unkindly? How do you disagree professionally? These are all things you cannot teach w/ an essay.
21:49:22 paula I never read a newspaper anymore, all of my admin read paper newspapers daily
21:49:43 traceymcgrath chrislehmann
21:49:45 Durff newspaper? what's that?
21:49:59 atruger @durff LOL
21:50:03 paula exactly - a different culture
21:50:11 Vicki Davis @cpbw - Living in the middle of nowhere -- sometimes the key to greatness is not information overload but rather, time in quiet to wiggle your toes in the dirt and play with the kids -- that is where inspiration comes.
21:50:11 djakes get teachers to change? Poor Tom...
21:50:12 jomcleay start from where the teachers are
21:50:13 vvrotny @cheryloakes I feel that I have been as productive and less aggitated
21:50:14 Durff i'm an illegal alien
21:50:17 shareski We have to show them why they should change...not just how
21:50:20 cpbw differnt tools for communication i would argue
21:50:21 CathyN in teaching textual info today and the various formats, kids ranked books as the LAST place they go for info
21:50:23 paula what are the implications for us geeks
21:50:25 WOScholar Teachers generally change ONLY when they see the need for change. Create the need, then make a move.
21:50:27 cpbw not everybody is going to use all the same tools
21:50:33 shareski 80% Why 20% How
21:50:33 jepcke Change: have you read "Our Iceberg is Melting?" It is like 'Who Moved my Cheese' great book or organizations
21:50:36 lizbdavis Be patient - Read "The Human Side of School Change"
21:50:43 Durff teach learners how to learn
21:50:47 Cathy E What do you do with the teachers that have been fishing but quit
21:50:48 CathyN confession=is January and i have not purchased the first library book this year--oh the shame
21:50:48 Vicki Davis @lizbdavis - It is important to take it one step at a time -- "technology creep" will happen, you just have to give it time.
21:50:50 vvrotny @djakes we will need to touch base sometime in the next few weeks to chat about NICE/EduCon linkup
21:50:54 glovely quote: "Some people change because they see the light, others because they feel the heat"
21:50:57 jess_technolote ah, I love hearing that people don't read the newspaper anymore. now i don't feel so guilty!
21:51:00 Durff is he describing my IT guy?
21:51:05 fiona_banjer Still continues to be a link between technology and ICT.
21:51:10 WOScholar @jepcke Miguel Guhlin blogged about that book this week. Seems interesting.
21:51:11 djakes @vvrotny. Absolutely
21:51:13 Durff sounds like it
21:51:18 Art Gelwicks Tech support should always be treated as a service department and reviewed and handled as such.
21:51:23 Vicki Davis @vvrotny -- I'm coming!!!!
21:51:23 jomcleay Yay Tom great point
21:51:50 jepcke @WoScholar Yep, read his blog. The book is worth reading
21:51:58 paula bypass the teachers I love it
21:51:59 CathyN me too JEN
21:52:00 djakes where is the administration in that discussion?
21:52:07 JSigler Our district focused our PD on technology for a year. It really brought everyone's technology level up a notch.
21:52:08 paula we will always have 24 hours each day
21:52:12 djakes bypass the teachers? how will the teachers feel about that?
21:52:13 traceymcgrath I did a poll with some of my middle school students 70% do some sort of personally blogging... I would say maybe 10% of our teachersblog!
21:52:13 courosa We need to give teachers real reasons to change their beliefs ... right now in schools they dont' feel there are any reasons ... the reaons have to be in their face ... from students ... from colleagues ... from parents.
21:52:15 jomcleay love collaboration like this JenniferW
21:52:17 djakes just build more resistance
21:52:21 Vicki Davis I don't think you have to bypass the teachers.
21:52:22 lizbdavis Arggh. I 'm so sick of the "No time" argument.
21:52:24 Art Gelwicks Ooh...I blogged on that yesterday!
21:52:25 dgrice Let teachers know that their previous knowledge and experience still has value.
21:52:27 vvrotny @vickidavis I will be virtual, jakes will be there. I am conducting a session at both our local Mini-Conference and hooking up with teachers at EduCon
21:52:29 Durff i wish i could that jen
21:52:32 CathyN i have a 50 50 staff half are old school, half really want to engage their kids in new ways
21:52:33 glovely hmmmm I don't think it is about time
21:52:35 djakes @lizdavis. Absolutely
21:52:36 shareski @courosa...amen
21:52:38 Art Gelwicks "It's my classroom and I'll cry if I want to..."
21:52:44 Vicki Davis I think that you can, however, do cooperative projects w/ the other teachers -- the more exposure they get the more it creeps in there.
21:52:44 amykenyon you're not weird
21:52:46 glovely I think it is about seeing the tools available
21:52:48 Durff i teach fulltime
21:52:53 jomcleay And take the teacher with you Jen
21:52:55 Durff so only planning periods
21:52:57 JenniferW LOL -- Not totally BYPASS
21:52:58 glovely and using what makes sense
21:53:00 Vicki Davis But you can't push someone up a ladder, they have to want to climb. If someone is opposed to change, I leave them alone!
21:53:06 traceymcgrath So glad I'm not alone in trying to inspire teachers to do more technically
21:53:09 sendkathy @Vicki, can you show us any of the work your teachers are doing on the web?
21:53:10 CathyN some tell me i speak too geeky--I DO NOT
21:53:11 shareski most teachers want to do the best...they'll change if they see value
21:53:12 Vicki Davis I believe in empowering the superusers .
21:53:13 JenniferW If you know me -- you know I will be KIND
21:53:18 djakes Change is about relationships
21:53:18 Vicki Davis And the jealous factor works well.
21:53:25 mjmontagne I've been going direct to students as well
21:53:27 sharonp barriers that need to be addressed - ease of use, belief that new innovative way is better, the need to be accepted if there is failure
21:53:28 shareski @djakes....amen
21:53:31 djakes to get people to change, you have to build relationships first
21:53:32 fiona_banjer Relationships = communication
21:53:37 cheryloakes wow show 57 cathyn, you speak just enough geek not too geeky!
21:53:40 jomcleay @cathyN I have decided to be more careful about geek speak this year
21:53:41 Vicki Davis @sendkathy -- Right now most of them aren't on the web except that we created a private schoolwide ning and they are blogging. That is where they are.
21:53:43 JSigler Teachers are already putting all their time and energy into teaching what they already have
21:53:46 djakes trust eminates from that, and now you have something
21:53:48 JenniferW @djakes -- I totally agree --
21:53:50 mjmontagne Wes Fryer wrote post about doing more with students directly
21:53:51 Durff the kids have nice technology!
21:53:51 glovely remember LOC (levels of concern)? that model is STILL valid
21:53:51 Vicki Davis We're just now getting them interested in smartboards.
21:53:54 Vicki Davis They are all using skype.
21:53:54 JenniferW and I want to work with them
21:53:58 cindy p teachers are competitive creatures
21:53:59 CathyN i keep tellin them to plan w/ me and Ill be the istructor w/ their help until the feel comfy enuf to be the instr w/ my help--baby steps
21:54:04 Sue Waters (Australia) I agree Vicik start with the early adopters and they will help move along the others
21:54:08 Art Gelwicks (Desire + interest) - FUD = change
21:54:12 jepcke Was t Art who said find a problem they have been unable to solve and them solve it
21:54:13 stevesoko I refuse to play the jealousy game - unfair to all th ekids
21:54:24 Vicki Davis It takes time and progress - -they all had e-mail - -but 5 years a go none of them had computers -- we have a school wide SIS -- did that last year -- it is important to understand that change is a process.
21:54:25 shareski trust in relationships and technology means you or it can screw up and it's no big deal
21:54:26 sendkathy Private ning sounds like a good idea
21:54:34 djakes All teachers have some kind of need, find that and help them address that need
21:54:36 Art Gelwicks Every person responds to the basic - WHat's in it for me?
21:54:37 sharonp in my experience - technology is off-putting and scary to many - if they don't feel somewhat confident using it or have freedom to fail, they won't try something new
21:54:40 jess_technolote teachers need to see that all this new Web 2.0 technology etc is going to enhance their teaching, not just that it is a bunch of cool tools. But how to show them that without overwhelming them too much?
21:54:42 lizbdavis It is about competence - helping teachers to feel cofortable enough to be incomptetent at something - hard for the veteren.
21:54:43 Durff for 8th grade kathy
21:54:44 JSigler How to you replace instead of adding to the curriculum
21:54:50 megormi I have found great success with starting with those that are ready, giving them great tech and PD.
21:54:52 fiona_banjer Why aren't the high tech users being identified and being put into teaching environments which will display what is achievable?
21:54:53 courosa need a larger chat screen
21:54:59 Art Gelwicks Talk teacher talk...not tech talk.
21:55:01 Vicki Davis Change is like aging -- gradual and eventual -- we just have to move it in the right direction.
21:55:02 atruger @jsigler Great question
21:55:03 CathyN i got a few to experiment w/ video by putting the camerq in their room and then capturing their footage and giving it back to them to play at editing
21:55:05 Durff courosa - detach
21:55:05 jeffmason I have the same frustrations as a classroom teacher toward my tech people. I am trying everything I can to work around them because of the closed door policy toward everything.
21:55:07 jomcleay @Jess and that it can help their teacheing be better in LESS time
21:55:08 sharonp @courosa I agree!
21:55:08 djakes @jsigler. Teachers need to give up pet content
21:55:14 Durff third icon from right
21:55:15 CathyN got some novice but cute stuff back
21:55:17 WOScholar @courosa How did the class go?
21:55:18 Vicki Davis I have an incredible curriculum director and principal and so it helps me. We're moving one step at a time.
21:55:18 Sue Waters (Australia) Change takes time and we have to be realistic - small change in anorganisation takes 3-5 years large takes 5-10years we have to be realistic
21:55:20 jess_technolote teachers are often impressed by what goes on, but then say 'ah but I can't do it' and don't even make the time to listen to easy it can be.
21:55:24 megormi We need to differentiate PD for our teachers also, if they are not ready, start with those that are
21:55:26 stevesoko You needto take each teacher where they are. Just like kids, what is tehnext step, where does each teacher need to go.
21:55:28 shareski @durff...thanks for the tip
21:55:29 jepcke @ art that's why it helps to be an educator in a tech role
21:55:31 djakes and school districts need to develop, implement and measure a guaranteed and viable curriculum
21:55:31 Vicki Davis @SueWaters -- you ar so right. It takes time.
21:55:36 djakes Marzano stuff
21:55:37 Art Gelwicks Also, not everyone will reach the same level. Assume that from the beginning and set a reasonable bar for each individual.
21:55:42 shareski [b]stop laughing
21:55:43 courosa @woscholar: not without challenges, but not bad
21:55:49 glovely it is ALL about permission to fail
21:55:49 Durff how can anyone read this - it goes too fast
21:55:50 cheryloakes wow show 57 This chat is going to be great when I can really go back and read it, thanks.
21:55:54 jess_technolote @jomcleay yes, but the ones I am trying to work with are reluctant to even put in that initial time
21:55:56 Vicki Davis But what bothers me is that most schools teaching pre-service teachers are indoctrinating teachers AGAINST new tools.
21:55:57 CathyN i told one tchr we just need to jmp in and fix it as we go the kids will be happy b/c it is their language even if its not ours
21:55:59 Vicki Davis Now that is a shame.
21:56:12 Sue Waters (Australia) @vicki I am only seeing now people that I worked with last year now starting to actually get it we need long term plans for uptake
21:56:13 jomcleay @jess sounds like we're in the same boat
21:56:14 glovely and also about meeting needs
21:56:15 Durff yes vicki
21:56:17 djakes @megormi. Why wouldnt they be ready?
21:56:20 Durff i agree
21:56:22 courosa @durff: ow?
21:56:28 jomcleay Yes Sharon True
21:56:29 jess_technolote @jomcleay - we need to come up with an attack plan!!! :)
21:56:37 Durff 3rd icon from right
21:56:39 Vicki Davis What do engineers do -- they indoctrinate pre-professional engineers with the latest, most cutting edge technology b/c they know that will infuse the best practices in the work place as the engineers graduate -- teachers don't.
21:56:42 JenniferW Welcome ChrisLehmann
21:56:43 Art Gelwicks @jepcke It does but it's not required. If a tech group is run as a service organization with teachers as the customers all they truly need to be able to do is listen well.
21:56:45 djakes uh oh, @chrislehmann is here
21:56:47 ChrisLehmann Heya...
21:56:48 jomcleay @Jess yes definitely talk on skype chat soon
21:56:50 Durff looks like boxes
21:56:52 shareski Ladies and Gentlemen...Mr. Chris Lehmann
21:56:52 jomcleay ?
21:56:54 cheryloakes wow show 57 Chris Lehmann, your ears must have been burning, we have been talking about you, all good.
21:56:56 djakes Shouldn't you be planning?
21:56:58 tom-turner he must have heard i mentioned his name
21:57:00 megormi @djakes If there are limited funds, start with teh pioneers and build out, that model works
21:57:04 CathyN my princi wanted to nim me for med spec of year--i said noway that would not wi me over with tchrs being new at my sch
21:57:06 JenniferW 16 Days -- CHRIS
21:57:09 WOScholar @courosa Thanks for inviting me earlier. I enjoyed the session while sitting in the tire store. Had a college kid come sit next to me and ask about my Mac and the cool stuff it would do. He loved the A/V capabilities. Typical kid these days.
21:57:18 Durff blue boxes
21:57:19 Vicki Davis @Sue -- 3-5 year plans that roll ar eso important and that is why, we must start REFLECTING as a process. It should be part of what we do as professionals. A process of continual improvement.
21:57:20 JSigler @djakes The curriculum is already a mile wide and an inch deep. It's not the pet projects that take the time. Its the curriculum.
21:57:31 Art Gelwicks When I speak to a teacher I ask, "What can I do to help you teach your material?" Not "What tech do you need help with?"
21:57:38 djakes in our case it is, but I agree with you.
21:57:39 ChrisLehmann @djakes had to take a break to watch NH coverage. :)
21:57:44 Sue Waters (Australia) the trouble is here we tend to have ad hoc plans which just don;t work
21:57:51 CathyN and is our job t demo that we are addrssing content and curriculum not tools and tech
21:57:54 Linda Nitsche @Art Gelwicks- That's my approach
21:57:56 WOScholar @djakes I thought you were the one planning, NECC coming in about 6 months you know.
21:57:57 Vicki Davis @Chris -- we were talking about you --- ;-)
21:57:58 JenniferW @ChrisLehmann -- they have already announced results in CA
21:58:03 courosa it was chris craft
21:58:08 djakes @chrislehman. C.H.E.E.S.E.S.T.E.A.K.S
21:58:12 courosa that's me
21:58:13 ChrisLehmann Vicki -- so I hear... What were you saying? :)
21:58:15 Durff get it courosa?
21:58:17 Vicki Davis @ChrisLehman - I said if Red Bull were a person that would be you!
21:58:21 Sue Waters (Australia) Opps sorry that was my response back @Vicki the ad hoc strategy does not work needs to be several year plans
21:58:22 JenniferW Yes, it was Chris Craft
21:58:25 ChrisLehmann @djakes -- we're on it. Don't worry. :)
21:58:29 djakes lol
21:58:31 courosa no, haven't detached
21:58:38 Durff pooh
21:58:46 CathyN and let me reind everyone that Chris Craft is from SOUTH CAROLINA
21:58:47 JenniferW Hello Kristen
21:58:47 Durff hi kristin
21:58:49 shareski @djakes...you're all about the food
21:58:51 CathyN :)
21:58:55 khokanson hey guys
21:58:56 Art Gelwicks @Linda - Great to hear that. Too many IT people isolate themselves in their digital towers.
21:58:57 jomcleay Hi Kristin
21:58:58 Vicki Davis @Sue -- yes, the curriculum director and I sit down and talk at least every 2-3 months and really we talk every week. She is close to retiring and could have retired a while a go but she says it is what we need to do.
21:59:00 courosa that was so much fun
21:59:03 cheryloakes wow show 57 hi kristinH
21:59:04 khokanson planned on catching the podcast
21:59:05 djakes @shareski. sweet
21:59:06 ChrisLehmann @vicki oy. One of my teachers referred to me as "The Bionic Man" yesterday. He was amazed that I admitted I was tired.
21:59:07 khokanson but arthus
21:59:10 CathyN I heard that Lehmann was working on PRN
21:59:14 courosa it's not ... but it's retro
21:59:16 ChrisLehmann PRN?
21:59:16 khokanson is doing a political show on ustream
21:59:21 Vicki Davis @ChrisLehman -- Just enjoy the family.
21:59:21 Linda Nitsche Hey Kristin
21:59:23 djakes Pot Roast Nachos
21:59:26 JenniferW Sent in my Reg today Chris -- :)
21:59:26 JSigler @Art Gelwicks That is a great approach to help with the time factor.
21:59:28 khokanson he isdoing a great job
21:59:31 Durff ew jakes
21:59:33 GMc Chat is so fast - almost as bad as TalkShoe.
21:59:34 ChrisLehmann eeeeeeew. :)
21:59:35 khokanson but could use some folks
21:59:39 ChrisLehmann Jen -- I saw!
21:59:41 Durff need to go vegan
21:59:43 djakes @durff. I crave PRN
21:59:44 paula but the chat get easier everytime one participates and listens
21:59:45 khokanson I figured this was where everyone is tonight :)
21:59:46 megormi YUM, PRN, licking my lips!
21:59:48 Vicki Davis @ChrisLehman -- Mine just think there is somethign wrong with me -- why would I want to work so hard when I don't HAVE to.
21:59:51 shareski it happens everytime @djakes is in the house
21:59:52 djakes not that vegan stuff, yuck
21:59:54 thekyleguy I want to try PRN
21:59:55 courosa this is just as bad
22:00:01 jomcleay @vicki yes I get that too
22:00:06 JenniferW no matter where we go -- it all comes back to PRN
22:00:08 sendkathy Where have I been? What's more realtime than twitter?
22:00:09 CathyN what about PRphchst
22:00:11 djakes @shareski is a cyberbully
22:00:14 Durff you don't know vat good is!
22:00:17 Sue Waters (Australia) Unfortunately here @Vicki we don't have the long term set up for this to happen
22:00:19 Art Gelwicks @JSigler Many times they're happiest when they just know you are honestly interested in their needs and problems.
22:00:19 fiona_banjer I'd hold up my PC if it wasn't back at warehouse being repaired LOL
22:00:22 JenniferW SendKathy --- the IRC chat
22:00:23 Vicki Davis @Jomcleay -- I think it is a matter of being the best, no matter where we're located.
22:00:27 sendkathy Oh
22:00:32 ChrisLehmann I'm fortunately... I have an amaing faculty who all work their tails off.
22:00:41 traceymcgrath @Art in trying to set up a wiki with one of our reading coaches, my attitude was you give me the content and I'll handle the tech side. Otherwise the project will flop.
22:00:47 shareski @djakes...just a li' bit. (Robert Deniro impression)
22:00:50 sharonp did someone drop the link in here about what we are talking about?
22:00:57 CathyN did anyone see where a yugma person via chris crafts blog thanked the edubloggers?
22:00:59 Vicki Davis @SueWaters -- I have been advocating things forever and now they are getting it. Actually, they take the magazines that have mentioned me and the school and are reading the other articles and going - Oh.
22:01:20 courosa i have a feeling it is just cool because it is different and new to some ... and of course, it is retro ... retro is cool.
22:01:22 fiona_banjer Yes Vicki, but it gets VERY frustrating continually being ridiculed for being a geek when you are really trying to show how something could be done so much better/easier/entertainingly etc.
22:01:24 Sue Waters (Australia) well unfortunately in my organisation I am limited in my powers
22:01:25 courosa mIRC is great!
22:01:26 CathyN James Farmer is emailing me about considering ditching edublogs too
22:01:26 lizbdavis I just discovered www.chatzy.com
22:01:29 Vicki Davis Delicious links for tonighta re here - http://del.icio.us/Wow2.0
22:01:30 Art Gelwicks @tracey - Yes and no. Help them, guide them, but give them the parts that cater to their strength. You plug in the copy but show them how to review and edit the text.
22:01:35 CathyN so the developers are paying attn folks
22:01:38 paula I advocaate for more bandwidth and less $ on software for local machines
22:01:39 WOScholar @VickiDavis My curriculum director began to feel left out after seeing all the cool stuff going on, so now we meet at least once a week.
22:01:42 jess_technolote @vicki it just takes ages for come teacher to come around to the idea
22:01:48 courosa we are talking hardly any bandwith really, relatively.
22:01:49 khokanson so when y'all are done drooling over Pot Roast Nachos and the show is done...come support arthus in his coverage of the primary http://ustream.tv/channel/newly-ancient-politics
22:01:56 jess_technolote @CathyN why would he ditch edublogs?
22:01:57 Vicki Davis @fiona_banjer -- That is when I retreat. I'm not going to push anyone, however, I'm going to make my students so in love with what we're doing that they will talk talk talk and the other teachers will want to change.
22:02:02 Sue Waters (Australia) @jess read my post on Challenges 2008
22:02:06 cheryloakes wow show 57 good idea go watch arthus yea
22:02:09 CathyN me im considering moving on
22:02:15 khokanson truly change in action
22:02:17 khokanson :)
22:02:19 nzchrissy2 I hpe James doesn't ditch edublogs!
22:02:20 Durff after wow kristin
22:02:23 Vicki Davis @WoScholar it is important -- when people feel "left out" they become ready to change.
22:02:25 khokanson yep
22:02:26 sroseman You can use private chat rooms at www.tappedin.org
22:02:29 khokanson after wow
22:02:35 fiona_banjer I think that teachers should have free access to broadband access so they can practice at home. Not rely on school. Put some time in to learn what is there.
22:02:36 Vicki Davis Folks we're getting ready to have critical mass. I'm just warning you.
22:02:49 Durff what is that?
22:02:51 ChrisLehmann yeah... I'm lagging like crazy, Vicki.
22:02:56 Sue Waters (Australia) James is not going to ditch Edublogs :)
22:02:59 Durff sounds scary
22:02:59 djakes Pot Roast Nachos http://tinyurl.com/2qkt9r
22:03:01 Vicki Davis I really believe it and see it. Anyone remember 1991-1993 -- well it is going to happen with blogging/ wikis 2008-2010.
22:03:02 glovely @vicki davis - as measured by?
22:03:02 CathyN clarification--CFarmer is trying to get me to STAY at edublogs cuz I hinted about leaving
22:03:02 lizbdavis @sroseman do the kids have to sighn in or sign up at tappedin?
22:03:20 fiona_banjer @Vicki Davis I agree and I am waiting for the holidays to finish so I can start again!! :D
22:03:20 WOScholar Sup told me to do my job and work with those that come to me. She came. Now she is on board, wants a MacBook, podcast blog. Already got her an iPod, digital camera, Google Docs account, etc.
22:03:25 Art Gelwicks Where did the time go?
22:03:28 Sue Waters (Australia) Understandably @Cthy he would want you to stay
22:03:30 sroseman There are two campuses at tappedin The educators and the K to 12 campus
22:03:39 Vicki Davis @glovely -- I believe that content creation by adults above aged 24 is going to skyrocket and when it skyrockets with their personal use, it will spillover into the classroom.
22:03:44 ChrisLehmann hey folks... feeling just under the weather enough to not stay in a chat room with anything to say... night everyone! :)
22:03:47 atruger DEN Rocks!!!!
22:03:51 JenniferW Thanks CHRIS
22:03:56 nzchrissy2 I can't believe how fast the hour went
22:04:00 Vicki Davis @glovely -- If you look at the Pew studies, you'll see that is starting to happen.
22:04:03 glovely ahhh the tipping point in content creation
22:04:18 djakes Thanks everyone

22:04:40 Vicki Davis @glovely and that is what we're talking, methods of content creation. I can't tell you how many people come in and say " Hey, I saw a blog on LA law or CSI last night."
