12:09:56 Maureen @Maria wow! that's a lot
12:10:16 Maureen I got approval to go to educon... going to book flight today
12:10:58 Maureen I knew we wouldn't have a mute Maria!!
12:11:59 Sheila Hi there!
12:12:10 Maureen Hi Sheila
12:12:35 Sheila The threesome! :)
12:13:02 Sheila sounds good from here!
12:13:08 Maureen Jealous of GTA
12:13:43 Maureen Not turning here
12:14:43 Sheila Love that I can float this chat room!
12:15:31 Sheila Still have no snow here on the NH Seacoast!
12:16:05 Maureen I worked late last night- if I play instead and count on it- I always jinx it
12:16:31 Maureen We don't have to make up snow days... ;-)
12:16:35 MariaK hi michael , sheila and kevin, maureen
12:16:36 mrichme Hi Everyone
12:16:50 Sheila Hi Michael!
12:17:27 Maureen @Sheila- come take my snow away...
12:18:43 mrichme No generator here!
12:18:54 Maureen I have enough wood in for a day, but more than that I have to go dig out the woodpile. I mostly hate having no water when it goes out.
12:20:23 Sheila brb
12:21:30 Maureen Missed ChristaMcA, but absolutely loved Joyce's K12 keynote! So much fun, and I learned lots too.
12:23:27 mrichme The kids are dragging me outside and play in the snow. I'll catch the podcast later on. Have a great day
12:24:47 Maureen I put Joyce's K12 keynote on our faculty blog page, along with Kelly Hines. I think I'll just make my own little K12 online page for our faculty.
12:26:04 Sheila Back - What did I miss? :)
12:26:31 Sheila Kidding, will catch it on archive.
12:26:52 MariaK sheila - links to the McA archive!
12:26:58 MariaK keynotes
12:26:59 carolteach4 Hey, a snow day show! How great is that. I just read something about how in the future, snow days could be used for collaborative learning and pd for teachers, and the days wouldn't have to be made up. I'm not sure that would fly for my district.
12:27:27 carolteach4 I had time to add two posts to my blog at:
12:27:45 Sheila Now I can release Joyce's. Had to wait for hers to show on K12online. Will get it shortly.
12:27:50 carolteach4 http://evolvingclassroombethany.blogspot.com
12:28:14 Sheila Joyce Valenza's - http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/2686217
12:28:32 carolteach4 I really intended to shut down this computer cover and go bake holiday treats and then I found Chery's message. I've missed Seedlings - been so busy and so tired.
12:29:11 Maureen No, they can call it in to drop.io ;-0
12:29:22 Sheila Other shows from CMTC09 - http://www.ustream.tv/channel/nhste
12:29:31 melindamiller just popping in to say hi before I go to lunch doodie:)
12:29:32 carolteach4 I almost forgot to turn on the sound; I knew I was missing something.
12:30:00 Harold how do you turn on the sound?
12:30:01 melindamiller No sound so I have not idea what you are talking about but I am jealous for your snow day:):):)
12:30:03 carolteach4 Hi, Bob and Cheryl, and Sheila, and all.
12:30:16 Sheila @MariaK still no case delivered. :(
12:30:22 Sheila Hi Carolyn!
12:30:39 carolteach4 Click on the speaker icon under EdTechTalkA
12:30:46 Maureen @Sheila- mine just went out yesterday... it'll be a bit I think
12:30:57 melindamiller this chat is so much better
12:31:00 carolteach4 I am soooooo happy to be back to the old chat window. Hated the other one.
12:31:25 carolteach4 How much snow in Maine?
12:31:45 carolteach4 Hi, Alice.
12:32:01 alicebarr Hi everyone
12:32:04 carolteach4 I've never been able to chat in the Ning.
12:32:19 carolteach4 I know you can save the chat in Elluminate.
12:32:36 bobsprankle http://bitbybitseedlings.ning.com/forum/topics/what-happened-to-our
12:32:40 alicebarr we have about 3 inches of wet snow
12:33:09 carolteach4 It's just raining here in West Haven, but I guess they got a lot of snow in Bethany where I teach.
12:33:42 Harold Augusta area about 3 inches of snow too :)
12:34:12 carolteach4 Yes, I really don't like the ads in the NINGs
12:34:26 Maureen I use ning with 7-9 and the apps they have on- not all appropriate. Any way to make them go away. We don't have the ads, got rid of gifts- but the apps... yuck
12:35:11 Harold gotta go do honey doo
12:35:59 carolteach4 That is good to know, Cheryl. I haven't set up a NING yet. I'm still getting Google Appls for Education popularized in our school.
12:36:16 carolteach4 Did you see the new phone app - Google Goggles?
12:36:28 Maureen @ALice- I remember using a link off classroom 2.0 when I did it
12:36:44 carolteach4 Are you recording this chat so we can get the links?
12:36:58 alicebarr http://education.ning.com/page/page/show?id=1027485:Page:45750
12:37:01 Sheila back again - we are trying to decide to have Belize class tonight or not . . . We have rain.
12:38:08 Maureen They work for me- in chrome right now
12:38:50 carolteach4 They worked for me - I got to Bob's and Alices - popped up in a new window.
12:38:59 carolteach4 I'm in Firefox.
12:39:12 Maureen FF keeps crashing- it is not playing with java nicely. But I love FF- just use chrome when it crashes repeatedly
12:39:18 Maureen No
12:39:36 Maureen I have ie, FF, chrome and safari...
12:39:42 carolteach4 My husband had to delete Chrome. It absolutely would not let him load and run his Adobe PhotoElements program.
12:40:19 carolteach4 Can I ask an important question about my iPhone?
12:41:14 Maureen it won't work on my itouch- new one. I downloaded and tried to make it work this monring
12:41:38 Sheila Has anyone used this to broadcast? http://www.ustream.tv/mobile
12:41:49 Maureen I looked on their site and it does not list itouch, only iphone
12:42:19 Sheila oh
12:42:37 Maureen While you're being geeky- what apps should I get for my itouch
12:42:44 Maureen @maria
12:42:45 Sheila I only have an iTouch too Maureen.
12:43:15 carolteach4 My old computer got a terrible virus, and I had to reformat the drive. I am now on a new Toshiba running Windows 7. When I connected by iPhone, I got the message that I can only link to one iTunes library. It wants to erase my whole phone and replace it with current library. Now I know that the phone backed up when I upgraded it (without syncing), but I'm afraid I won't be able to restore all my old stuff to the iPhone.
12:43:30 Maureen @Maria- it did not work on my itouch... I have an app called recorder, and the new itouch has a voice memo
12:44:42 Sheila I saw those tweets too
12:45:31 carolteach4 @Bob and all - can someone please speak to my question about the iPhone? Please!
12:45:40 Maureen Mortenson- 3 cups of Tea guy has a new book out that i want to read
12:47:56 Maureen I showed the 5th graders my itouch on Monday. I told them I didn't know anything about it. Had them suggest apps and show me how to do cool tricks- take screenshots, etc. I downloaded the airmouse and played with it last night- pretty cool.
12:49:38 carolteach4 Bless the computer - I'll look for that.
12:49:52 carolteach4 Thanks. I really don't want to lose what I have on my phone.
12:49:58 Maureen I know nothing about the whole thing, but I found yesterday that since I have 2 different itunes libraries on laptop and desktop... same account. So I decided only to sync on the desktop.
12:50:22 alicebarr @CarolTeach You probably heard about help
12:50:43 carolteach4 I went to the help site, but I got kind of lost.
12:51:31 carolteach4 Oh - that is awful for the schools. I think that it's terrible how all these new tech updates ruin it for older computers.
12:51:43 carolteach4 Thanks, Bob, I'll look right now.
12:52:42 carolteach4 Hey, guys, this was fun. I've really missed you. Made it to Maine (Camden) for Thanksgiving.
12:53:03 Maureen Bye, have fun!
12:53:06 carolteach4 Probably won't make it up for Christmas. Hubby has to have radiation treatments.
12:53:44 bobsprankle bye all
12:53:49 carolteach4 Thanks to everyone. I won't make Seedling tomorrow. concert at school.
13:08:23 Sheila Lost internet - at public library but too late I assume . .
