[19:36] <JoeKing> what happened?
[19:36] == nanga_ [i=4a4b9e20@gateway/web/freenode/x-bba7754956e93132] has joined #edtechtalk
[19:37] <PeggyG> very interesting question! If you had the whole world listening, what would you say?
[19:37] <zhynes_> were they all hs students, I assume?
[19:38] <BenN-Host_> :0
[19:38] <alicebarr> @zhynes Yes all high school
[19:38] <PeggyG> did you do fundraising to be able to pay your way to the Forum?
[19:38] <nanga_> how do we get the audio feed?
[19:39] <benm> @peggyG no...the school paid our way
[19:39] <alicebarr> Coalition is small school reform movement started by Ted and nancy Sizer

[19:42] <cheryloakes50> We are so sheltered in Maine with class size, it must be amazing to hear their perspective of their huge schools.
[19:42] <alicebarr_> I know
[19:43] <PeggyG> Can you tell us more about the mission of the Coalition?
[19:44] <nanga_> Ben m How does yarmouth's studetn senate compare with other schools?  Have you had a chance to talk with others about what studetns are doing and things they have accomplished?
[19:44] <cheryloakes50> PeggyG, we have very small percentages of other cultures in most maine schools
[19:44] <cheryloakes50> This must be so exciting for all students.
[19:45] == sheila [i=4610d10d@gateway/web/freenode/x-c8d42270f1e34b69] has left #edtechtalk []

[19:45] <BenM-Host> I can answer
[19:45] <alicebarr> No go ahead and ask
[19:45] <nanga_> see above about student senate
[19:45] <PeggyG> I'll bet it is! They must be very self-confident people to feel comfortable meeting and mixing with so many new people!

[19:47] <cheryloakes50> Yes Peggy, I think that happens for so many of our students with all the presentations they do today
[19:47] <zhynes_> what is Yarmouth presenting this year?
[19:47] <benm> @zach we're not presenting, just attending this year
[19:47] <BenM-Host> I don't really have a sense for what other Student Senate's are like, but ours is a group of leaders, grades 9-12.
[19:47] <PeggyG> how resourceful!! looking for guests for the show while they're there!
[19:48] <cheryloakes50> they are so smart aren't they PEggy
[19:48] <PeggyG> definitely!!
[19:49] <PeggyG> is the nature of this event changing with so much technology available now? wonder if more students could participate if they didn't have to pay to travel?
[19:50] <cheryloakes50> Peggy, good thought, BenNBen do they allow for virtual attendance or video conference?
[19:51] <BenM-Host> I'm not sure about those capabilities as of now, I'll explore that though cheryloakes

[19:51] <zhynes_> very cool presentations
[19:51] <PeggyG> that's always such a challenge to try to present without internet access! I've had to do that before and it's hard!
[19:52] <BenM-Host> Yes, we become so accustomed to having the internet. Having to do without it is difficult

[19:53] <BenN-Host> Mia, hello!
[19:53] <nanga_> the difference at Yarmouth is the tech integrator and staff support..without that they are just laptops
[19:53] <alicebarr> World History http://worldhistoryatyhs.wikispaces.com/
[19:53] <cheryloakes50> tech integrators do help the cause
[19:54] <zhynes_> @cheryloakes: absolutely!
[19:54] <cheryloakes50> Carol, this is a new chat room, not too many liking it now.

[19:54] <cheryloakes50> Thanks zach
[19:54] <alicebarrhttp://yhsartdept.ning.com/
[19:55] <PeggyG> I'll bet it's so interesting to compare stories with so many different students about courses and technology access!
[19:55] <zhynes_> did Yarmouth have it at any point in history (the senior project)?
[19:55] <cheryloakes50> go to participartory!!!
[19:56] <PeggyG> so many wonderful choices!! tought to choose!
[19:56] <cheryloakes50> go to the ELL one too, that is how I became a webhead!
[19:56] <Suzanne> @zach - yarmouth had a senior seminar class, not a senior project
[19:57] <alicebarr> @zhynes Yes a long time ago and a senior seminar
[19:57] <PeggyG> a "worst" part is not to be able to go to everything :-)
[19:57] <alicebarr> Do you think it would have value?
[19:59] <PeggyG> funny! cheesy :-) icebreaking is a good thing though...

[20:00] <zhynes_> I always loved poetry...
[20:00] <PeggyG> are students trusted more at Yarmouth to make decisions about things they do? do you have privileges that other students don't have besides laptops?
[20:00] <cheryloakes50>  poetry is a good equalizer with young adults

[20:03] <zhynes_> how warm is it?

[20:15] <carolteach4> Hi, all - Just a quick message. A terrible virus has disabled all my virus protection. My technician at school tried to clean it, but it's written to the registry. All I can do now is reformat the drive and start all over. I was trying to use it as is, but now it's taken out all my audio devices, so I can't hear anything.
[20:15] <Cathy> I have sent your site to a young man in North Carolina - his name is Randy Nance
[20:15] <cheryloakes50> Oh, Carolteach4, good luck to you.
[20:15] <cheryloakes50> they are wrapping up
[20:15] <PeggyG> wonderful job ben and ben!! great show!!
[20:15] <carolteach4> Beware, everyone. This is nasty. I kept my norton up to date and ran frequent virus checks. Got right by it.
