2008-03-04 21:09:28  Vicki Davis  @jepke - Just shared it.

2008-03-04 21:09:37  Margo  oldest and wisest 

2008-03-04 21:09:44  ffoxworth  Is chatting the best way to interact on this conversation?

2008-03-04 21:10:01  Vicki Davis  @ffoxworth -- are you listening to the stream?

2008-03-04 21:10:03  sylvia k.norton  all librarians are special!

2008-03-04 21:10:03  Ann-NJTechTeacher  @ffoxworth I think so

2008-03-04 21:10:06  Michael.Dodes  Very special librarian

2008-03-04 21:10:10  cheryloakes wow2  yes ffoxworth, the best way is chatting or leaving a question in the chat and we will pass along.

2008-03-04 21:10:27  sharonp  In order to hear the audio - click on one of the "Channel" icons

2008-03-04 21:10:32  Ann-NJTechTeacher  But sometimes it's hard to keep up with both (for me) so the podcast is useful later one

2008-03-04 21:10:37  CathyNelson  This i believe--we r a bridge that goes BOTH ways

2008-03-04 21:10:38  ffoxworth  @coolcatteacher I loved your preso! Going to share it with the other TISs in my district.

2008-03-04 21:13:17  cheryloakes wow2  www.inanimatealice.com

2008-03-04 21:13:24  Teach42  @Joyce I have to admit it's not quite as fun presenting when you aren't next door to hassle.

2008-03-04 21:13:29  Vicki Davis  http://www.inanimatealice.com/

2008-03-04 21:13:36  joycevalenza  shucks, steve!

2008-03-04 21:15:07  sendkathy  Also have been wondering how to become involved in TWB myself

2008-03-04 21:15:23  cheryloakes wow2  Great links tonight!

2008-03-04 21:15:41  CathyNelson  LOL

2008-03-04 21:15:45  VinnieVrotny  Here is a presentation we used for grandparents last spring to show how education has changed

2008-03-04 21:15:49  loonyhiker  i hit control and left click my mouse and it opens up

2008-03-04 21:17:04  Teach42  Ok, I'm out.  Take care everyone!  Can't wait to hear the audio...

2008-03-04 21:17:11  KarenJan  @virtualteacher - there's a great resource online to make talking books out of ppt - google it

2008-03-04 21:17:11  cheryloakes wow2  bye steve

2008-03-04 21:17:25  sylvia k.norton  joyce's outfit is always cute

2008-03-04 21:17:38  CathyNelson  Hi Kitty--taking time off from NB portfolio?

2008-03-04 21:17:41  KarenJan  @virtualteacher - i've adapted it and can do it pretty quickly - instead of scanning the books, I take pictures of each page - it's much easier

2008-03-04 21:17:51  colettec  you can use forms in google spreadsheets to make instant polls now

2008-03-04 21:18:00  mkforbus  Hey Cathy!  You know it!

2008-03-04 21:18:02  CathyNelson  @LarenJan legally?

2008-03-04 21:18:09  Vicki Davis  What an amazingly cool idea!

2008-03-04 21:18:11  Vicki Davis  Wow!

2008-03-04 21:18:11  sylvia k.norton  I also use polls like that in staff development sessions. Get's them into being there and participating

2008-03-04 21:18:18  cheryloakes wow2  thanks for the tip on google spreadsheets, colettec

2008-03-04 21:18:23  Vicki Davis  I like surveyshare.com -- for powerful research.

2008-03-04 21:18:49  CathyNelson  @joyce we will have to work that in at the panel at necc

2008-03-04 21:18:54  loonyhiker  i've used survey monkey

2008-03-04 21:19:08  Virtual Teacher  @KarenJan Digital Photos is a great idea.  I have been maikng digital books using iMovie, but it's the scanning that kills me.

2008-03-04 21:19:10  colettec  survey monkey is super easy too

2008-03-04 21:19:16  sharonp  Am really hoooked on surveymonkey - will be analysing data from it about PD for our province in the next few weeks

2008-03-04 21:19:24  KarenJan  @cathynelson - yes since the class has the book and these are for students with significant special needs - can't share with others

2008-03-04 21:19:37  PeggyG  I love surveymonkey but it costs money

2008-03-04 21:19:38  CathyNelson  new names?? information station

2008-03-04 21:19:40  mmiller  I have  used zoho polls but can't make it work now

2008-03-04 21:20:07  joycevalenza  try polldaddy instead

2008-03-04 21:20:09  Vicki Davis  surveyshare gives free pro accounts to educators -- curtis bonk controls it.

2008-03-04 21:20:09  CathyNelson  MUST change

2008-03-04 21:20:14  bookminder  I used a Google Docs survey this week and it was good

2008-03-04 21:20:20  mmiller  I didn't think  survey monkey cost anything

2008-03-04 21:20:24  Ann-NJTechTeacher  @PeggyG It's free as long as you can stick to 10 questions and less than 100 surveys

2008-03-04 21:20:27  CathyNelson  yes

2008-03-04 21:20:29  CathyNelson  ys

2008-03-04 21:20:32  mmiller  Oh

2008-03-04 21:20:34  CathyNelson  yes

2008-03-04 21:20:39  colettec  survey monkey will give you some access for free

2008-03-04 21:20:40  sharonp  I thought that UK study - Google Generation - really raised sme interesting points

2008-03-04 21:20:41  donnadesroches  yes

2008-03-04 21:20:52  CathyNelson  GREETINGS @SC TEacher

2008-03-04 21:21:13  James.Sigler  Let's not throw the library out with the bathwater

2008-03-04 21:21:14  CathyNelson  no one catalogs anymore Vicki!! we buy the records

2008-03-04 21:21:18  colettec  i <heart> libraries

2008-03-04 21:21:22  loonyhiker  @sc teacher where r u in sc? i'm in greenville :)

2008-03-04 21:21:31  Michael.Dodes  Library refers technically to just books...and carries a LOT of connotations with it, maybe we should re-evaluate that

2008-03-04 21:21:32  sroseman  http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/2859845.stm

2008-03-04 21:21:37  cheryloakes wow2  good point, Joyce, serving learners.

2008-03-04 21:21:48  sharonp  unfortunately none of our public schools have librarians anymore - tehy have technicians... no real interface with the students

2008-03-04 21:21:49  loonyhiker  i was always scolded and told to say media center

2008-03-04 21:21:51  CathyNelson  amen !joyce

2008-03-04 21:22:05  loonyhiker  our librarians are called media specialists

2008-03-04 21:22:05  Vicki Davis  libratory!!! WOW!

2008-03-04 21:22:08  sylvia k.norton  Media carries a lot of connotations too - like the news media

2008-03-04 21:22:12  CathyNelson  @looneyhiker I say call it whatever u want

2008-03-04 21:22:13  cheryloakes wow2  Libratory, serving learning and learners!

2008-03-04 21:22:14  Vicki Davis  I love that term -- LIBRATORY LIBRATORY --

2008-03-04 21:22:16  Michael.Dodes  If we're going to re-invent ourself, we need to let go of the labels

2008-03-04 21:22:19  dellacurtis  All 175 library media specialists in my county do NOT catalog books, they teach!

2008-03-04 21:22:21  CathyNelson  its YOUR space too

2008-03-04 21:22:29  donnadesroches  libraries = information, knowledge, wisdom not books

2008-03-04 21:22:30  PeggyG  Yes for very short polls it would work fine--if you want to compile and analyze results and do other more extensive work with them you need to pay--I've use the pro account for years primarily because of action research projects

2008-03-04 21:22:32  VinnieVrotny  in past, they used to chain books into the space. now, since people to guide are the important aspect of the library, should we chain them to the libraries?

2008-03-04 21:22:38  CathyNelson  Hey Diane Chen!!

2008-03-04 21:22:51  srenatee  amen! we just want to make the info accessible

2008-03-04 21:23:06  colettec  why do it  yourself when the purchased records are so good

2008-03-04 21:23:13  Michael.Dodes  info-brary?

2008-03-04 21:23:16  CathyNelson  its a place for multitasking for all school community

2008-03-04 21:23:34  csitterley  Have a full day meeting with k-12 librarians on Friday and looking forward to sharing from this event with them

2008-03-04 21:23:40  CathyNelson  and learners get ideas form other learners in the library

2008-03-04 21:23:40  sylvia k.norton  Even in the dark ages, my library was never about cataloging.  It was about getting students able to find and use information as well as the love of reading etc.  This was true when the only technology in my library was a typewriter!

2008-03-04 21:23:43  loonyhiker  had one librarian years ago who allowed no talking in library and growled if you touched a book

2008-03-04 21:23:51  colettec  the library should be the hub of the whole school

2008-03-04 21:23:56  heatherloy  the library is an extension of the classroom

2008-03-04 21:24:07  matt montagne2  k on the eeePC now...

2008-03-04 21:24:15  CathyNelson  dewy what?

2008-03-04 21:24:20  donnadesroches  the creating  and publishing center of the school - to quote Alan November

2008-03-04 21:24:22  CathyNelson  Dewey who?

2008-03-04 21:24:22  Virtual Teacher  I wish that we still had people in our libraries to interact with the students.  We have parent volunteers who sign books out and re-shelve them.  They take care of the library for us, but we need trained specialists who can help teach the kids.

2008-03-04 21:24:24  sylvia k.norton  the library is a very dynamic classroom itself

2008-03-04 21:24:35  lindarogde  Cataloguing is only a means to an end--- being able to find something

2008-03-04 21:24:37  joycevalenza  yes, the largest classroom in the school

2008-03-04 21:24:40  srenatee  i had great aides who could interact

2008-03-04 21:24:46  loonyhiker  when we got a 2nd librarian who encourage ppl in there, we went from 1% usage to about 90% usage by students

2008-03-04 21:24:49  bookminder  In my district we are teacher-librarians.  I tell the kids that I am there to make them look good, by giving them the skills in info lit they need to be successful

2008-03-04 21:24:52  sendkathy  @CathyNelson, how does a school library plan to become that ideal?  Is it about layout, equipment, resources?  Do you know of any great elementary school models?

2008-03-04 21:24:56  Vicki Davis  I think that many libraries are considered "sanitary" while my classroom is "messy"  -- very few librarians I think like the idea of having "argument" or snuggling up w/ a laptop.

2008-03-04 21:24:58  Vicki Davis  Or do they?

2008-03-04 21:25:08  sharonp  we are at the point whre we desperately need info specialists and instead we are seeing awful cutbacks

2008-03-04 21:25:13  Michael.Dodes  I tried to tell a teacher I was a teacher...they kept trying to change it around so I would admit I didn't teach...I wouldn't budge

2008-03-04 21:25:30  loonyhiker  our media specialist was also the IT person

2008-03-04 21:25:32  CathyNelson  @sendkathy elementaris r the hardest cuz they become the planning period, but yes, they r out there

2008-03-04 21:25:40  Vicki Davis  Do you all see librarians like this?  I'm a bit envious.

2008-03-04 21:25:45  cheryloakes wow2  good for you Michael, I am glad you are a teacher!

2008-03-04 21:26:12  colettec  libraries = ACCESS

2008-03-04 21:26:14  CathyNelson  wikis

2008-03-04 21:26:16  dianerchen  Had a parent volunteer in today for the second time who wondered at all we do in a short amount of time to support everyone in school. She stated it best, "What would the school do without you?"

2008-03-04 21:26:24  srenatee  @vickiedavis. many librarians are great...still a few old stereotypes out there.

2008-03-04 21:26:29  cheryloakes wow2  yes cathynelson, libraries get a bad rap , like the lab, as a planning time for teachers

2008-03-04 21:26:38  CathyNelson  daj define 3.0

2008-03-04 21:26:44  srenatee  my library is a happening, noisy place

2008-03-04 21:26:49  sendkathy  @CathyNelson, if you have a link to a really good elementary media center site I would love to check it out.

2008-03-04 21:26:49  Vicki Davis  I think great libraries are amazing -- but I guess I know a few who like to hoard things.

2008-03-04 21:26:52  CathyNelson  doug u r form a non filtering worlld

2008-03-04 21:26:56  loonyhiker  i know some tchrs who send the bad kids to the library to get them out of their class

2008-03-04 21:27:01  colettec  i would love to have my student work cataloged in the libary

2008-03-04 21:27:01  dellacurtis  There is no digital divide for students in the library media center - it levels out the playing field for all knowledge workers.

2008-03-04 21:27:03  Vicki Davis  @cathy -- they packet shape

2008-03-04 21:27:05  CathyNelson  @sendkathy will work on it now

2008-03-04 21:27:06  daj  Web 3D

2008-03-04 21:27:10  Vicki Davis  @loonyhiker

2008-03-04 21:27:17  carlenewalter  Can you comment on some school division's choice to replace teacher-librarians with educational assistants? The library is becoming, in many places, a shelving only place rather than a hub of collaboration.

2008-03-04 21:27:32  dianerchen  I love the bad kids. We join together to show the teachers that they learn BETTER in the library with free choice and excitement.

2008-03-04 21:27:35  Michael.Dodes  If a teacher is going to send a student to the library, I demand that they come with work to do at the least so I can help them learn

2008-03-04 21:27:42  csitterley  Our librarians sometimes seem to see themselves as second class citizens in the learning community -want to help them see the importance of their roles

2008-03-04 21:27:46  James.Sigler  Web 3.0=Web 3D?

2008-03-04 21:27:49  KarenJan  "No such thing as a bad kid" read the book!!!

2008-03-04 21:27:54  srenatee  schools who don't understand the power of the lms will cut the position

2008-03-04 21:27:55  colettec  SL no access for kids

2008-03-04 21:27:57  sharonp  I have only met a handful of local librarians in my context who have thought about web 2.0

2008-03-04 21:28:22  Vicki Davis  Yes, it makes so much more sense!

2008-03-04 21:28:27  dianerchen  Hey Tisch

2008-03-04 21:28:27  Vicki Davis  Absolutely!

2008-03-04 21:28:34  carlenewalter  Hello Violet!

2008-03-04 21:28:37  CathyNelson  http://www.readingwithmsbyrd.com/ @sendkathy

2008-03-04 21:28:46  sharonp  but ironically, the web 2.0 librarian scene i s lively and dynamic -

2008-03-04 21:28:48  dianerchen  Tisch is a technology coach who works with school librarians in a big district

2008-03-04 21:28:54  daj  Hi David!

2008-03-04 21:28:55  CathyNelson  OMG hello David Loertscher

2008-03-04 21:28:59  srenatee  absolutely....use everything!!!

2008-03-04 21:29:01  carlenewalter  Hello Violet!

2008-03-04 21:29:02  cheryloakes wow2  welcome tisch!

2008-03-04 21:29:02  ehelfant  the library should be the most creative, dynamic center of learning on campus..place to get help with everything.. Our libarains and I help plan curriculum.. they are a center for tech support

2008-03-04 21:29:02  dellacurtis  Production equipment has a long history in library media centers - early 1970's

2008-03-04 21:29:03  PeggyG  It's been so sad to see the elimination of librarians in schools due to dwindling public funding--especially in our state (near the bottom in funding)

2008-03-04 21:29:03  vtkari  who was lookikng for elem sites? we have 4th graders blogging, 6th graders making wikis and k's doing virtual manipulatives..all in thelibrary

2008-03-04 21:29:09  CathyNelson  we have the true library heros here tonight!

2008-03-04 21:29:13  colettec  production equipment must be included in library b/c they can't finish it all in class

2008-03-04 21:29:18  sharonp  I agree @Peggy

2008-03-04 21:29:19  sylvia k.norton  Those are 'traditional' librarians.  Those are librarians who never understood an effective program in the first place.  We 'produced' back when it was an overhead projector!

2008-03-04 21:29:28  CathyNelson  @joyce and heroines

2008-03-04 21:29:39  srenatee  lol, doug. yes....

2008-03-04 21:29:40  dellacurtis  Agree, Doug!

2008-03-04 21:29:51  Vicki Davis  Yes generalizations can apply to all of us!!!

2008-03-04 21:29:56  sendkathy  Do any librarians out there have a philosohphy on scheduling time in the library?  We have a flexible scheduling system and it causes me to miss my day because it is never at the same time or same day.

2008-03-04 21:29:56  srenatee  but in all professions. sometimes we can't 'hide' like teachers.

2008-03-04 21:29:59  colettec  we need to encourage production outside of class too

2008-03-04 21:30:03  CathyNelson  keep thinking my skype chat is going cuz I hear someone else's

2008-03-04 21:30:06  cheryloakes wow2  Yes Sylvia, and the are some who will make some great changes with support.

2008-03-04 21:30:20  dianerchen  sendkathy - what do you mean by "your day"

2008-03-04 21:30:28  ehelfant  Our library checks out headsets, video camera, ipods..

2008-03-04 21:30:28  sharonp  I agree Joyce - huge shift

2008-03-04 21:30:30  cheryloakes wow2  I know Cathy,I keep looking too.

2008-03-04 21:30:32  loonyhiker  our library had a master calendar with the resources listed. we could sign up for any if not already taken

2008-03-04 21:30:41  srenatee  i agree. it's alll in the environment we create for our kids.

2008-03-04 21:30:45  sharonp  and yet, there are those who are soooo reluctant to do so

2008-03-04 21:30:48  dellacurtis  Absolutely, Joyce!  Trust goes a long way - it is their library.

2008-03-04 21:30:50  donnadesroches  I have found that students are very respectful with equipment, etc

2008-03-04 21:31:04  dianerchen  Do your teachers still view the library as only the room in the building or as a resource that extends in the community and homes?

2008-03-04 21:31:06  sharonp  It is unfortunate that teachers have not HAD to make that shift

2008-03-04 21:31:13  ehelfant  i struggle with the older teachers wanting the library to be a quiet place of study

2008-03-04 21:31:15  CathyNelson  those non changing admin are some of the problemo daj

2008-03-04 21:31:20  srenatee  amen sista

2008-03-04 21:31:34  colettec  we are all retooling our education - we must!

2008-03-04 21:31:39  malewine  in our state (SC) recommendations for building new libraries, we have the space recommendation for a production studio. The idea is to encourage, foster, and facilitate collaboration between teachers, media specialists (information specialists), and students. Had a meeting recently with a local architect who's working on a new library design and he admitted that a production studio in the library was a new concept to him.

2008-03-04 21:31:46  sendkathy  Well, by my day I mean that I can sign up for two times a month for a story time for my class and then I can send a couple kids at a time any day to check out books.  The scheduled time is essentially a lesson but I must attend so it isn't a 'planning' period!

2008-03-04 21:31:51  CathyNelson  we should take the non changing ppl as a challenge!!  MODEL MODEL MODEL

2008-03-04 21:32:05  dellacurtis  I can't think of a day that goes by where I don't rethink, embrace new technololgies, etc.

2008-03-04 21:32:08  loonyhiker  glad to see SC so well represented tonite :)

2008-03-04 21:32:11  bookminder  when the kids know you are working for them the whole atmosphere changes.  This year I brough it  couches and bean bag chairs and the kids whole attitude has changed.

2008-03-04 21:32:13  Michael.Dodes  @dellacurtis me too

2008-03-04 21:32:25  CathyNelson  your welcome--i advertised unmuercifully

2008-03-04 21:32:28  James.Sigler  What will cause teachers to change?

2008-03-04 21:32:32  CathyNelson  unmercifully

2008-03-04 21:32:38  Michael.Dodes  High stakes testing of course

2008-03-04 21:32:39  cheryloakes wow2  good thing to do bookminder!

2008-03-04 21:32:41  colettec  information/production/remashing 24/7 service!

2008-03-04 21:32:44  Michael.Dodes  haven't you read the news?

2008-03-04 21:32:46  srenatee  more than teachers, librarians must be their own advocates...prove their worth

2008-03-04 21:33:04  CathyNelson  but we r not tested, so some treat us as unimportant

2008-03-04 21:33:07  Vicki Davis  We all must prove our worth.

2008-03-04 21:33:17  srenatee  we must stay ABOVE the radar....teachers can fly low sometimes.

2008-03-04 21:33:18  Vicki Davis  If we are doing rote routine tasks and that is it, we can be replaced.

2008-03-04 21:33:29  Vicki Davis  Teachers who just do handouts and lectures... can be easily replaced.

2008-03-04 21:33:33  CathyNelson  i love to see teachers who breeze thru the lib when I am teaching--they get sucked in

2008-03-04 21:33:36  Vicki Davis  Librarians who only catalog can be replaced.

2008-03-04 21:33:41  malewine  Besides being our own advocates, it is important to teach in front of teachers

2008-03-04 21:33:49  colettec  only one kid needs access to the pathfinder - the others will find them on MySpace, IM

2008-03-04 21:33:50  dianerchen  In order to prove our worth, we must have others who advocate for us. How many are creating parent advocacy groups like the Washington moms?

2008-03-04 21:34:03  cheryloakes wow2  good point Vicki, we don't want to be rote, however we do need to be transparent and share so all people learn about new libraries.

2008-03-04 21:34:05  Michael.Dodes  We need to be more than the direct sources of information, we need to provide the tools to let people do the work themselves.

2008-03-04 21:34:27  CathyNelson  igoogle is what the kids KNOW

2008-03-04 21:34:28  cheryloakes wow2  dianerchen, good point, yes, we need a cheerleading squad

2008-03-04 21:34:31  Vicki Davis  Yes -- my students create RSS readers in netvibes.

2008-03-04 21:34:38  Vicki Davis  Great thing to do!

2008-03-04 21:34:44  sharonp  What acool approach!

2008-03-04 21:34:52  Vicki Davis  I think every student should have a "launching pad" -- every student.

2008-03-04 21:34:55  csitterley  Our district cut the library aides-libraries have 20 computers, 25 laptops and one librarian- have to do clerical-want to work with kids

2008-03-04 21:34:59  dianerchen  As a former cheerleader, I know that I had to learn about the game to say the appropriate cheer.

2008-03-04 21:35:07  bookminder  @Cathy Nelson.  You're right about teachers getting sucked in.  They often learn as much as the kids when I'm teaching and I see the teachers taking notes.

2008-03-04 21:35:10  daj  Info pimping of personal sites!

2008-03-04 21:35:16  Virtual Teacher  @malewine I think that you are right - there would be more valueing of what librarians do (and fewer funding cuts) if more teachers (and higher ups) could see the teaching that can come from a skilled and involved teaching librarian.

2008-03-04 21:35:18  cheryloakes wow2  Joyce, good idea and strategy! individualized web portal

2008-03-04 21:35:19  ehelfant  @vicki what would you use for the launching place

2008-03-04 21:35:22  sendkathy  I have heard the same comments from our Media Specialist.  She has a Master degree in library science yet she is not a certified teacher so teachers don't give her the credit she deserves for lesson creation.  They don't value her time and take her for granted. She has to have the library open all the time so she lives in a fish bowl.  It's got to be tough.

2008-03-04 21:35:23  colettec  do you have RSS on your pathfinders so they can subscribe???

2008-03-04 21:35:25  CathyNelson  Carolyn Foote sends warm greetings from the caucus (in TX)

2008-03-04 21:35:26  Michael.Dodes  I feel your pain cs, the clerical stuff can be a major time killer and it's a shame.

2008-03-04 21:35:28  sharonp  Info pimping, LOL

2008-03-04 21:35:32  Vicki Davis  @ehelfant - I use netvibes

2008-03-04 21:35:41  Vicki Davis  Set up one for flatclassroom - set up one for horizon

2008-03-04 21:35:46  CathyNelson  she sends here greeting via twitter

2008-03-04 21:35:53  Vicki Davis  they have tabs for hobbies and for term paper, etc.

2008-03-04 21:36:03  sharonp  I think of it as a dashboard

2008-03-04 21:36:03  Vicki Davis  Search the google news search for current events of interest.

2008-03-04 21:36:06  cheryloakes wow2  So Joyce, you helped them create a personal assistant

2008-03-04 21:36:10  CathyNelson  This is what makes teh kids TRULY understand

2008-03-04 21:36:12  Vicki Davis  this is an essential skill -- personal portal.

2008-03-04 21:36:21  jepcke  Age of these kids?

2008-03-04 21:36:22  dianerchen  I'm no longer the one in charge of everything. I put teachers in charge of their students. They learned to checkout, answer phone, and manage chaos while I work with students individually.

2008-03-04 21:36:29  Vicki Davis  I have a teacher raving about igoogle and the others want it now.

2008-03-04 21:36:30  colettec  love these ideas of a personal portal!!!!

2008-03-04 21:36:33  ehelfant  @vicki how many kids do you have doing this

2008-03-04 21:36:34  dianerchen  Ownership must be extended out.

2008-03-04 21:36:41  Vicki Davis  All 10th graders.

2008-03-04 21:36:47  cheryloakes wow2  good plan dianerchen, good to share the jobs.

2008-03-04 21:36:51  Vicki Davis  All 9th graders.

2008-03-04 21:36:54  dianerchen  Web 2.0 grew because people took more ownership and responsibility for their roles in creation, communication.

2008-03-04 21:36:56  CathyNelson  Clinton wins Rhoode Isalnd just in case u r curious

2008-03-04 21:36:56  ehelfant  wow

2008-03-04 21:37:00  Vicki Davis  Different content depending on th topic

2008-03-04 21:37:03  srenatee  love my igoogle

2008-03-04 21:37:09  cheryloakes wow2  thanks cathynelson

2008-03-04 21:37:13  bookminder  ??What app is Joyce using to have her kids build these pages?

2008-03-04 21:37:17  Vicki Davis  My 9th graders blog publicly under pseudonyms.

2008-03-04 21:37:22  Vicki Davis  and so they research for blog topics.

2008-03-04 21:37:22  colettec  iGoogle rocks!

2008-03-04 21:37:27  jepcke  Would love to create a dashboard for younger learners 3rd-8th

2008-03-04 21:37:27  Michael.Dodes  I can't wait till widget design becomes more WYSIWYG

2008-03-04 21:37:30  CathyNelson  @bookminder igoogle or pageflakes

2008-03-04 21:37:31  alicebarr  I was in a school today (not mine) that is blocking iGoogle becasue of games :(

2008-03-04 21:37:42  Vicki Davis  @alice - games are everywhere

2008-03-04 21:37:44  James.Sigler  I just caught up in the chat.  Whew!  It's rocking.

2008-03-04 21:37:44  Vicki Davis  On laptops

2008-03-04 21:37:48  Vicki Davis  solitarie?

2008-03-04 21:37:52  Vicki Davis  solitaire?

2008-03-04 21:38:01  alicebarr  Exactly and if students choose to waste their time...

2008-03-04 21:38:04  ehelfant  We are having game afternoons in our linrary.. we bought 2 wis and a playstation

2008-03-04 21:38:04  dianerchen  Our new laptops were distributed to librarians with right-click disabled.

2008-03-04 21:38:08  colettec  love the ideas of publishers providing widgets

2008-03-04 21:38:21  CathyNelson  at SLA students proved they could chat, surf and get right back n task

2008-03-04 21:38:23  dianerchen  Fear grows stronger.

2008-03-04 21:38:30  Vicki Davis  I agree w/ Joyce -- they are amazingly deficient in things that I think a technologically literate person should know.

2008-03-04 21:38:43  CathyNelson  we r the ones who cant handle it all

2008-03-04 21:38:46  sharonp  not enough critical thinking

2008-03-04 21:38:49  vtkari  you can do igoogle with grade 6-8 students

2008-03-04 21:38:51  sharonp  very surface

2008-03-04 21:38:56  davidloertscher  Has anyone linked teaher's assignments with accompanying librarian's tips to the kids iGoogle pages?

2008-03-04 21:38:57  Vicki Davis  @alice - they can stare at the sky too are we going to block that out?

2008-03-04 21:38:58  sharonp  not deep

2008-03-04 21:38:58  dianerchen  We need more guides on internet safety for parents so they support us. Administrators are more afraid of parent responses and us getting them in trouble and on the local news.

2008-03-04 21:39:00  sailsmart  which blogs do your schools allow?  Our board blocks blogs, or most of them, but not wordpress yet.  So they wouldn't be able to blog.

2008-03-04 21:39:02  PeggyG   @James.Sigler--I shared your toys/purpose quote in Clarence Fisher's class on ustream tonight. Someone asked for a URL--you need to blog about it :-)

2008-03-04 21:39:02  Vicki Davis  We must deal w/ the behavior!

2008-03-04 21:39:03  tischann  @diane and no games on the laptops, may cause frivolilty

2008-03-04 21:39:05  dellacurtis  http://www.collectivex.com is an outstanding resource for group worksites.

2008-03-04 21:39:12  srenatee  I did a workshop last night w/ student teachers. the only web2.0 tools they knew were facebook and myspace! nothing else!

2008-03-04 21:39:15  malewine  Vicki, just what we've said before...students are technology savvy not necessarily technology literate.

2008-03-04 21:39:16  alicebarr  @vivki right on It's all about engagement!

2008-03-04 21:39:29  colettec  do this same idea with all faculty members - teach them how to make iGoogle pages too

2008-03-04 21:39:31  ehelfant  we have to teach design better

2008-03-04 21:39:36  dianerchen  No games on our laptop immediately caused 10 of us to locate the free games that we could play even though we were to busy to play.

2008-03-04 21:39:46  srenatee  new noting of delicious, flickr, google docs, etc.

2008-03-04 21:39:57  CathyNelson  know enough to be DANGEROUS and misinformed

2008-03-04 21:40:03  bookminder  ??Is the chat saved as a log and available after the session?

2008-03-04 21:40:13  CathyNelson  @bookminder yes

2008-03-04 21:40:14  srenatee  @bookminder..yes

2008-03-04 21:40:14  Vicki Davis  @bookminder -- yes it is archived.

2008-03-04 21:40:17  sharonp  @bookminder - YeS

2008-03-04 21:40:30  err  How do you get to the archived chat?

2008-03-04 21:40:32  jepcke  Just watched the youtube video shared earlier about k-12 student today. A great one. Shared it with my admin via email. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_A-ZVCjfWf8

2008-03-04 21:40:32  cheryloakes wow2  The chat and the audio are archived and published later this week at edtechtalk.com

2008-03-04 21:40:37  csitterley  We have Google Apps for Education at 7-12- beginning to  have students showing teachers the value of collaboration- games can be added to their personal start pages- being respectful

2008-03-04 21:40:37  johnsonmaryj  Joyce, do you have a favorite information portal software, or do you give students many choices?

2008-03-04 21:40:43  sharonp  http://edtechtalk.com/WomenofWeb2.0

2008-03-04 21:40:44  loonyhiker  teachers taking my course this summer will have to blog and wiki

2008-03-04 21:40:45  Vicki Davis  @diane -- kids will pick up a rock if there is nothing to play with -- we must deal w/ behavior.

2008-03-04 21:40:50  PeggyG  Joyce's website is so loaded!! Does she have a link to any examples of her student portals they have created? Would love to see an example

2008-03-04 21:40:53  cheryloakes wow2  I usually get the audio and chat posted by Thur. AM. I put th e notice out at twitter.

2008-03-04 21:40:57  tischann  but wouldn't you agree that even though students are tech savvy, they will never be able to replace the teachers because we teach our children how to learn regardless of the equipment

2008-03-04 21:40:59  joycevalenza  mary, I love igoogle for that

2008-03-04 21:41:01  James.Sigler  @ PeggyG I twittered it today.  Math2.0: Tools-purpose=toys Toys+purpose=Learning

2008-03-04 21:41:03  sharonp  All of our shows and chats are archived abt the above address

2008-03-04 21:41:04  Vicki Davis  They should know how to create their own license -- what a great point!!!!

2008-03-04 21:41:05  Vicki Davis  WOW!

2008-03-04 21:41:15  cheryloakes wow2  Or go to www.edtechtalk.com/womenofweb2    for the archive

2008-03-04 21:41:28  dianerchen  Culture and climate rock the web.

2008-03-04 21:41:40  cheryloakes wow2  Hey Kern

2008-03-04 21:41:45  CathyNelson  yep--we just reinstated a ban on cell phones today due to videos going out from school

2008-03-04 21:41:46  dianerchen  What you do and what your students do is a result of your attitude.

2008-03-04 21:41:53  LindaNitsche  How much are the Library Associations guiding librarians in this?

2008-03-04 21:41:54  Kern  Hey Cheryl

2008-03-04 21:41:57  cheryloakes wow2  Hello David!

2008-03-04 21:41:59  PeggyG  @James.Sigler--me too on twitter :-) good for you!

2008-03-04 21:42:04  djakes  Hello everyone

2008-03-04 21:42:06  loonyhiker  that last link didn't work is it just me?

2008-03-04 21:42:06  CathyNelson  Hi DJakes

2008-03-04 21:42:09  sharonp  The material and resources I create for my job at LEARN belong to LEARN

2008-03-04 21:42:12  dellacurtis  Yes, we have a form where students have to give us permission to use their intellectual property.

2008-03-04 21:42:16  colettec  [i]<--- lost audio[/i] :(

2008-03-04 21:42:18  dianerchen  Is everyone here an active member of AASL/ALA and their state school library association?

2008-03-04 21:42:19  malewine  Yes, students need ICT instruction now more than ever and we're the ones that are critical to that instruction.

2008-03-04 21:42:27  lori a  @jpecke  like minds I al shared the youtube video and already heard back from one of them

2008-03-04 21:42:27  tanya  link didn't work for me either

2008-03-04 21:42:36  sharonp  and I have to say, I have some problems with the fact that it is put behind a walled garden for only the use of Quebec teachers

2008-03-04 21:42:39  Vicki Davis  MTSU

2008-03-04 21:42:45  CathyNelson  and libraries are the perfect collaborator to get the ICT instruction in

2008-03-04 21:42:56  sendkathy  @CathyNelson, cell phones are banned at out HS but we still have problems.  Cyber bullying, sending explicit images of fellow studnets during the school day. Bad news.  Student creation gone bad.

2008-03-04 21:43:10  cheryloakes wow2  here is the link  www.edtechtalk.com/womenofweb2.0   sorry I forgot the .0

2008-03-04 21:43:17  VinnieVrotny  great three questions who owns information, who owns curriculum, who owns the idea?

2008-03-04 21:43:40  CathyNelson  @vinnie and what is the answer to any of it?

2008-03-04 21:43:40  dianerchen  who determines the lesson?

2008-03-04 21:43:42  colettec  colleges are dealing with it with faculty

2008-03-04 21:43:47  dianerchen  lessons and curriculum vary

2008-03-04 21:43:48  chriswherley  did I miss something. NOt getting any audio?

2008-03-04 21:44:04  sharonp  @vinnie - so many teachers in the world live in areas with proper PD and resources - in good conscience I have a problem with not sharing that with them

2008-03-04 21:44:06  bookminder  Isn't this happening with everything they post to sites like Facebook? 

2008-03-04 21:44:13  dianerchen  Students vary so greatly in tech abilities and they are demanding ways to catch up to their peers.

2008-03-04 21:44:14  cheryloakes wow2  audio is at ETTA, on the edtechtalk.com page  at participate live

2008-03-04 21:44:15  loonyhiker  now i'll have to go listen to earlier shows! i'll be busy this week!

2008-03-04 21:44:16  CathyNelson  ETT a--it wil launch your player, but you may have to click the play button

2008-03-04 21:44:23  colettec  digital citizenship & creative commons should be talk for all & teachers

2008-03-04 21:44:30  sharonp  WITHOUT proper PD and resources --- oops

2008-03-04 21:44:37  srenatee  i found a library website that used joyce's page. copied it lock, stock, and bbarrel w/o attribution. used joyce's daughter's drawings

2008-03-04 21:44:43  CathyNelson  @looneyhiker u MUST come back every week

2008-03-04 21:44:46  sharonp  I speak up for CC as much as I can

2008-03-04 21:44:50  jbailey  Good point about students understanding CC from the standpoint of them creating.

2008-03-04 21:44:53  CathyNelson  I do too

2008-03-04 21:44:59  VinnieVrotny  I believe it shifts to the individual, since it is the experience which is unique. Why schools will survive and why MIT and such are putting courseware on the web, to draw students to the experience

2008-03-04 21:45:04  loonyhiker  yes ma'am i follow directions well :)

2008-03-04 21:45:12  CathyNelson  teachers are so reluctnat though its just so easy to use google images they say

2008-03-04 21:45:22  dianerchen  Everyone join the associations please so we can have others advocate for us.

2008-03-04 21:45:39  tewbook  When I hear about all of the things that librarians are doing  with tech and 2.0 tools, I just get depressed because I'm not allowed to do it at my school.

2008-03-04 21:45:42  sharonp  curriki

2008-03-04 21:45:44  CathyNelson  IM in Dian --SCASL, AASL, ALA

2008-03-04 21:45:47  cheryloakes wow2  looneyhiker, enjoy past shows!!! I fill my ipod and listen to shows over again too

2008-03-04 21:45:51  colettec  use advanced search on flickr to look for creative commons

2008-03-04 21:45:59  tewbook  Hi Diane and Tish

2008-03-04 21:46:00  djakes  How come librarians don't know about Creative Commons?

2008-03-04 21:46:03  CathyNelson  or Flickrcc

2008-03-04 21:46:05  dianerchen  We need to communicate through all the different tools because different people prefer different means of communication.

2008-03-04 21:46:05  mkforbus  I used Creative Commons in one of my National Board portfolio lessons.

2008-03-04 21:46:08  VinnieVrotny  i put creative cc license on my IL-TCE presentations. I would love for people to mashup my work, just give me credit for helping them get there

2008-03-04 21:46:09  loonyhiker  i'm embarrassed to say that i didn't know about creative commons until about 2 months ago after reading some blogs

2008-03-04 21:46:12  bookminder  @Cathy - teachers need to know that they should lead by example.  I take my staff to task on this all the time.

2008-03-04 21:46:17  cheryloakes wow2  good point colettec, spead the word.

2008-03-04 21:46:21  sharonp  how silly not ot share - education should be first in line sharing openly

2008-03-04 21:46:24  tischann  @tewbook  I agree, because I try teaching these things to all our librarians, only to have it blocked or removed

2008-03-04 21:46:27  srenatee  too many aren't reading journals, blogs, or doing the studying to learn this,

2008-03-04 21:46:31  Kern  I had to show it to my super - who they showed it to the admins in my district

2008-03-04 21:46:33  CathyNelson  i make that point regularly @bookminder

2008-03-04 21:46:36  sendkathy  Cheryl, glad you mentioned ipod, can we get some info about e-books and how they are being used in the libraries,

2008-03-04 21:46:42  heatherloy  because Flickr is bloced at most schools in SC

2008-03-04 21:46:43  matt montagne2  or use flickrstorm or behold to search cc photos

2008-03-04 21:46:55  chriswherley  yeh. I couldn't get audio to work with Firefox. oops

2008-03-04 21:47:00  colettec  Open Education Resources at:  http://www.k12opened.com/wiki/index.php/Learn_About

2008-03-04 21:47:02  CathyNelson  in our world of everyone making pts, videso, dig storytelling they NEED to use CC pix

2008-03-04 21:47:02  sailsmart  we call it informed consent form.  If I use a student's art work, they sign a contract to allow me to use it with clear explanation of where and how.  It would be removed from website on student request.

2008-03-04 21:47:05  CathyNelson  or there own

2008-03-04 21:47:10  CathyNelson  their own

2008-03-04 21:47:14  VinnieVrotny  you generate the excitement by bringing people to the experience

2008-03-04 21:47:26  CathyNelson  too exp for school

2008-03-04 21:47:29  dellacurtis  It's their brain!

2008-03-04 21:47:31  CheriT  Rice University is starting a movement toward open textbooks - self-publishing

2008-03-04 21:47:31  dianerchen  so much advocacy must still be done individually. Work with 1-3 people at a time in lighthearted manner to inspire others to try something new.

2008-03-04 21:47:38  matt montagne2  technically anything created is the property of the emploer I thought

2008-03-04 21:47:51  dianerchen  Did you see the state choose free reading curriculum instead of textbooks today?

2008-03-04 21:47:55  VinnieVrotny  as an independent school this is and idea we are toying with. Publish broadly and create a local buzz. Interesting to see where this will go

2008-03-04 21:47:56  tewbook  I've had some decent luck getting some things and blogs unblocked by ENA

2008-03-04 21:47:57  Michael.Dodes  I don't see how physical access to equipment translates into intellectual ownership of anything created on it.

2008-03-04 21:48:04  matt montagne2  I thought employer owend the rights to works created by employees

2008-03-04 21:48:06  CathyNelson  Texas pushes mcCain over in delegates--he has won the repub nomin just incase u r curious

2008-03-04 21:48:14  matt montagne2  kindle rocks

2008-03-04 21:48:19  Vicki Davis  My friend just told me that Hilliary lost texas.

2008-03-04 21:48:24  Michael.Dodes  Kindle I've used a bit though I don't own it

2008-03-04 21:48:26  sharonp  Am not that keen about kindle

2008-03-04 21:48:29  cheryloakes wow2  Cathy Nelson, you go you political pundit!

2008-03-04 21:48:29  dianerchen  CathyNelson can you give us a collective overview of status

2008-03-04 21:48:32  matt montagne2  I totally dig the kindle

2008-03-04 21:48:32  sharonp  first of all - not in Canada

2008-03-04 21:48:35  jbailey  http://www.mvhs.msad43.org/academics/techtoolkit This is a webpage where I've been collecting CC and public domain content links

2008-03-04 21:48:41  sharonp  second of all, how come no audio on kindle??

2008-03-04 21:48:43  ehelfant  love kindle for travel or on the go

2008-03-04 21:48:45  CathyNelson  Obama TX

2008-03-04 21:48:48  ehelfant  prefer book before bed

2008-03-04 21:48:49  Michael.Dodes  honestly I look at a screen enough of the day....kindle doesn't help....but it is cool being able to download books anywhere

2008-03-04 21:48:51  dianerchen  Does everyone who is sharing here contribute to blogs and comment on other blogs?

2008-03-04 21:48:52  Vicki Davis  And why do you have to PAY for blogs on the kindle

2008-03-04 21:48:53  lindarogde  I have several ebooks from Follett on school catalog---not that popular

2008-03-04 21:49:16  CathyNelson  RI = Clinton

2008-03-04 21:49:22  bookminder  @dianechen - I do both

2008-03-04 21:49:22  sharonp  I would buy one for my folks in a minute fi it did audio

2008-03-04 21:49:22  matt montagne2  kindle does not lend itself well to multiuser environ

2008-03-04 21:49:26  jbailey  @cheryloakes wow2 & kern Glad to be here

2008-03-04 21:49:38  Michael.Dodes  at $400 a pop, I don't see kindles being a school priority soon

2008-03-04 21:49:47  matt montagne2  if you loan out a kindle oterhs can buy books from amazon with your account

2008-03-04 21:49:48  tischann  @tewbook, but it seems sometimes that we are grasping at straws and missing the haystack sometimes.  As I learn more about what is out there and what other districts are doing, bit seems that when the focus is more reactive to the technology much is lost, but when freedoms are give, much thriving and sharing of ideas occurs

2008-03-04 21:49:49  cheryloakes wow2  good night vinnie, thanks,

2008-03-04 21:49:52  CathyNelson  Ohio not defined yet

2008-03-04 21:50:01  matt montagne2  the text on the kindle is unreal

2008-03-04 21:50:05  sailsmart  questia.com is the largest ebook library.  a single access costs 100.00

2008-03-04 21:50:06  srenatee  go..bama

2008-03-04 21:50:06  Vicki Davis  If we go to pay as we go, then we are looking at a totally different model of funding libraries.

2008-03-04 21:50:07  CathyNelson  no yellow check

2008-03-04 21:50:10  Michael.Dodes  E-ink is definitely intriguing

2008-03-04 21:50:15  sharonp  wow

2008-03-04 21:50:17  Vicki Davis  So, ebooks will become part of it -- interesting.

2008-03-04 21:50:28  Michael.Dodes  OLEDs has some exciting possibilities too

2008-03-04 21:50:30  matt montagne2  I don

2008-03-04 21:50:36  sharonp  So how about that election in Alberta?? :-)

2008-03-04 21:50:44  CathyNelson  LOL

2008-03-04 21:50:49  matt montagne2  I think ebook distro wll benefit non traditional markets most

2008-03-04 21:50:50  sailsmart  what about google books?

2008-03-04 21:50:52  cheryloakes wow2  I heard PEI will sweep Canada!

2008-03-04 21:51:21  dianerchen  Thanks James, I'll go there.

2008-03-04 21:51:25  sharonp  PEI sweep Canada.... with their red sand?? Anne of Green Gables arlready rules

2008-03-04 21:51:31  loonyhiker  me too @vicki

2008-03-04 21:51:38  cheryloakes wow2  Goo Sharon!

2008-03-04 21:51:40  matt montagne2  ebooks will be a boon for develoiping countries with a cellular infrasturcture only

2008-03-04 21:51:42  Kern  we've found that using the iPods while reading the text

2008-03-04 21:51:44  matt montagne2  ebooks will be a boon for develoiping countries with a cellular infrasturcture only

2008-03-04 21:51:48  Vicki Davis  Integrating your auditory learners -- is so amazing!

2008-03-04 21:51:50  srenatee  it's Encyclomedia in kY

2008-03-04 21:51:54  srenatee  love it

2008-03-04 21:51:54  Vicki Davis  Wow!  What a great thought!

2008-03-04 21:51:54  KarenJan  digital text = accessible for all learners!

2008-03-04 21:51:56  dianerchen  I blog mostly for SLJ right now. Everyone should post this week. I'm sure Joyce and I can start some rabble-rowsing that would make Doug proud.

2008-03-04 21:52:00  loonyhiker  ipods not allowed at my school

2008-03-04 21:52:05  matt montagne2  derrallg...it is a struggle...how can you tell!!

2008-03-04 21:52:08  sharonp  Ustream is now available to all teh public schools in Qu?©bec!

2008-03-04 21:52:13  sylvia k.norton  I like audiobooks because I can do something else while listening

2008-03-04 21:52:17  srenatee  yes, you can to ipods too

2008-03-04 21:52:18  tewbook  @tischann, every time I start getting teachers in to work on projects the admin takes the library for testing or anything else without notice or a thought.  I have 1 full day and 2 half days of checkout for middle school and I'm not supposed to have classes in to do research while they are

2008-03-04 21:52:23  ehelfant  We tried vitalsource library for teachers

2008-03-04 21:52:25  lori a  discovery streaming

2008-03-04 21:52:31  Kern  plus the 'cool; factor of using the ipods kids use them who aren't usually readers

2008-03-04 21:52:33  CathyNelson  i wear  in the door my ipod in the door daily

2008-03-04 21:52:39  dianerchen  Audio - keep emphasizing different ways to learn. I need closed captioning right now due to hearing problems.

2008-03-04 21:52:39  Vicki Davis  You're talking immersion!

2008-03-04 21:52:40  KarenJan  some kids need to listen to the books on MP3s, that way they can access grade level novels

2008-03-04 21:52:44  cheryloakes wow2  yes, sylvia, just differnt opportunities to listen to stories while driving and waling.

2008-03-04 21:52:44  Vicki Davis  AMAZING!!!!!

2008-03-04 21:52:48  cheryloakes wow2  walking

2008-03-04 21:52:50  sailsmart  some teachers think that audible books is not reading and will not help students become better readers.  Sure we have to consider that students have various learning styles, but they still want them to read, not listen.

2008-03-04 21:52:57  Vicki Davis  A totally customized book!

2008-03-04 21:53:01  dianerchen  Some kids need the mp3 players so they can jump up and down while they are listening and learning.

2008-03-04 21:53:02  CathyNelson  earbuds = engaged

2008-03-04 21:53:04  sharonp  we need to get multimodal to address differentiated learning needs

2008-03-04 21:53:08  sendkathy  @sharonP, want to get more infor about your teachers w/o borders trip I will be watching twitter for updates

2008-03-04 21:53:08  matt montagne2  ebook readers are great assistive tech devices...the text enlarging feature is awesome

2008-03-04 21:53:13  Kern  We're lucky enough to get a grant for a TON of iPods

2008-03-04 21:53:15  loonyhiker  @sailsmart they need to think about the objective: is it reading or content?

2008-03-04 21:53:21  sharonp  @sendkathy - you bet!

2008-03-04 21:53:23  cheryloakes wow2  cathynelson, love it earbuds=engaged

2008-03-04 21:53:26  dianerchen  Short-sighted teachers who don't help students transition from auditory to reading.

2008-03-04 21:53:27  srenatee  We download cc on united streaming for kids to read along

2008-03-04 21:53:28  johnsonmaryj  Check out lulu - a Web 2.0 self publishing site.

2008-03-04 21:53:30  matt montagne2  students with visual challenges

2008-03-04 21:53:34  Virtual Teacher  @Sharonp I am so excited about the Ustream being available in Quebec.  Can't wait to be using them with my students SOON!

2008-03-04 21:53:45  KarenJan  @sailsmart - there is research that shows that listening to the text with the text improves reading/reading comprehension

2008-03-04 21:53:50  sharonp  Am looking for a) classes to connect with schools in SA, b)teachers willing to mentor SA teachers in PD

2008-03-04 21:53:52  colettec  with Zune - you can beam files to one another - sharing resources - cool

2008-03-04 21:53:56  KarenJan  my son is an excellent example of that due to his LDs

2008-03-04 21:53:57  dellacurtis  Opposing Viewpoints Critical Thinking from Thomson Gale has MP3 filesof the text of articles - these appeal to our auditory learners.

2008-03-04 21:54:04  matt montagne2  text book companies making their wares avalable for readers

2008-03-04 21:54:07  dianerchen  Some students don't realize that their version of reading is "silent audio books in their heads"

2008-03-04 21:54:09  ehelfant  listening to Hamlet or Huck finn certainly helps them get into the reading better

2008-03-04 21:54:16  sharonp  @Virtual Teacher - am trying to highlight best vids and how tehy relate to QEP on LEARN site

2008-03-04 21:54:18  tewbook  @diane, where did you see that the state has gone with open source? I think that is what you called it, textbooks?

2008-03-04 21:54:21  matt montagne2  I actually like to crank up font size on the kindle too

2008-03-04 21:54:23  CathyNelson  LOL used bluetooth on IWB today to snag a video off a confiscated cell phone

2008-03-04 21:54:24  KarenJan  can you talk about NIMAS?

2008-03-04 21:54:33  Kern  definitely - students listen to books outside their usual comfort reading zone

2008-03-04 21:54:40  CathyNelson  pulled up thebluetooth for all to see that I could see their phones ON

2008-03-04 21:54:40  dianerchen  Was it Florida in today's TN front page?

2008-03-04 21:54:47  sendkathy  @Sharon, I don't think uStream is blocked perse because I can access the site and the live stream I just can't open the broadcast window.  Any ideas about what might be getting in the way?

2008-03-04 21:54:51  matt montagne2  im on asus right now...stuggling with keyboard!!!!

2008-03-04 21:55:03  matt montagne2  I'm digging the asus

2008-03-04 21:55:07  CathyNelson  I struggle with macbookpro keyboard LOL

2008-03-04 21:55:08  dianerchen  I love audiobooks because all the teenagers in my car stop arguing to listen to adult mysteries.

2008-03-04 21:55:11  Virtual Teacher  @Sharonp Can't wait to see that list!

2008-03-04 21:55:11  rdrunner  hey matt.  It's Cindy S.

2008-03-04 21:55:13  daj  matt type more slowly

2008-03-04 21:55:14  cheryloakes wow2  Karen waht is Nimas?

2008-03-04 21:55:18  loonyhiker  @sendkathy maybe check port settings?

2008-03-04 21:55:22  sharonp  you have to subrscribe and pay for subscription

2008-03-04 21:55:25  sharonp  very expensive

2008-03-04 21:55:26  dianerchen  Students will continue to work if we stop getting in their way.

2008-03-04 21:55:35  PeggyG  @sendkathy-could it be related to popup blockers?

2008-03-04 21:55:37  matt montagne2  hey cindy s

2008-03-04 21:55:41  Vicki Davis  National Instructional Materials Accessibility Standard (NIMAS).

2008-03-04 21:55:48  Vicki Davis  http://nimas.cast.org/

2008-03-04 21:55:49  sendkathy  Yes, it may be the port but my tech specialist didn't seem to think that was it.

2008-03-04 21:56:08  KarenJan  NIMAS is the National Instructional Materials Accessibility Standard

2008-03-04 21:56:16  loonyhiker  wow! this hour has flown past

2008-03-04 21:56:18  KarenJan  it's federal law

2008-03-04 21:56:18  sailsmart  use premiere software to read the internet pages. ELL students can hear the words to help with language acquisition.

2008-03-04 21:56:22  sharonp  GASP

2008-03-04 21:56:37  tischann  anyone know much about sharepoint v. wikis?

2008-03-04 21:56:46  tewbook  @diane, I never get passed the online version.  I decided I would rather spend the money for 7-8 fiction books for the students that would be read instead of the newspaper for teachers

2008-03-04 21:56:46  colettec  Voicethread is great for book sharing

2008-03-04 21:56:53  matt montagne2  shelfari

2008-03-04 21:57:01  sailsmart  I use a readinggroupguides blog.

2008-03-04 21:57:04  ehelfant  This has been great!..gotta get kids to bed! night all!

2008-03-04 21:57:05  sendkathy  3 cups of tea

2008-03-04 21:57:08  Michael.Dodes  Voicethread is one way, microblogging might be a good way too.

2008-03-04 21:57:09  James.Sigler  Finally caught up in the chat

2008-03-04 21:57:09  matt montagne2  our librarian has been going bananas with shelfari

2008-03-04 21:57:12  colettec  our Librarian is using Moodle set up with topics for book discussions

2008-03-04 21:57:16  srenatee  www.kibrarything.com

2008-03-04 21:57:18  vtkari  we use voicethreads with 4th graders after a field trip to the mill - very positive all the kids did a recording

2008-03-04 21:57:20  James.Sigler  On no behind again :)

2008-03-04 21:57:23  jbailey  I've extended book discussions on Voicthread too and on our in house email folder (with audio lit circles)

2008-03-04 21:57:24  PeggyG  @sharonp-so glad you recommended 3 Cups of Tea-immediately purchased it and can't wait for it to arrive

2008-03-04 21:57:33  srenatee  whoops...www.librarything.com

2008-03-04 21:57:35  dellacurtis  Destiny Library Manager 8.0 now will allow students to write reviews as well as "star" books they recommend. 

2008-03-04 21:57:37  CathyNelson  prediction--classroom will go away, libraries will stay

2008-03-04 21:57:44  sailsmart  I really need to learn how to use Moodle.  Hope to see some links on this.

2008-03-04 21:57:44  colettec  has anyone tried Google Lit Trips w/ book discussion

2008-03-04 22:00:19  dianerchen  Everyone can encounter a new principal who is overly protective and not appreciative of how wonderful we are.

2008-03-04 22:00:21  matt montagne2  Milwaukee, wi usa

2008-03-04 22:00:22  tischann  what's the best way to get your principal as an ally instead of an adversary?

2008-03-04 22:00:25  sylvia k.norton  librarians are technology coordinators

2008-03-04 22:00:25  colettec  tech teacher + web 2.0 librarian = awesome team
