20:54:53 SusanEttenheim: humm ok

21:06:10 SusanEttenheim: hi fred - we can't hear you
21:09:37 guest478: dinosaur
21:34:18 SusanEttenheim: hi gail!
21:34:25 SusanEttenheim: what's going on with your skype?
21:36:02 Paul Allison: Gail are you avialable?
21:40:35 guest478: i'd better head out folks... couple of things to sort out before i nap.
21:42:20 Gail Desler: Grabbing notebook - "plank"? "mofe"?
21:44:29 Gail Desler: Tried to join AM virtually- but was not successful
21:44:39 SusanEttenheim: http://davecormier.com/edblog/2010/12/09/voice-digital-storytelling-106/
21:44:46 SusanEttenheim: mooc
21:45:02 Fred Haas: Massive Open Online Course MOOC
21:45:17 Gail Desler: "mooc" Massive Open Online Course - ah, I want to know more
21:50:36 Gail Desler: Ah, credit recovery - an important topic!
21:51:39 Gail Desler: Andrea, I'm losing you.
21:52:09 Gail Desler: Oh, no, lost everybody:(
21:52:09 Paul Allison: Looks like we have lost things?
21:52:11 Fred Haas: Everyone just kind of broke up
21:52:20 Paul Allison: I can't hear anybody?
21:52:26 Gail Desler: Me neither
21:54:16 Andrea Z: Um, IDK. Sorry...not sure what happened to me.
21:54:30 Gail Desler: If we're not able to reconnect, I would love to continue a discussion on credit recovery and virtual academies
21:54:45 Paul Allison: I don't think it was you.
21:54:46 Fred Haas: I fell off the call completely
21:54:54 Andrea Z: Me, too!
21:54:57 Paul Allison: Susan must be doing something.
21:55:17 Gail Desler: Standing by....
21:55:29 Paul Allison: Right so does it frustrate advocates of online education that it becomes "credit recovery?"
21:55:34 Andrea Z: If we are going to talk about credit recovery, we should talk to Mike Ritzius.  He's doing some neat things with his students.
21:55:47 Paul Allison: Say more?
21:55:52 Gail Desler: Is he in Michigan, Andrea?
21:56:00 Andrea Z: He's set up a whoe school environment around virtual learning
21:56:03 Andrea Z: but with f2f support
21:56:09 Andrea Z: He's in New Jersey
21:56:11 Gail Desler: Is there a link?
21:56:36 Andrea Z: Hmmm. I'm not sure...I've talked to him about it over twitter and at Educon last year.
21:56:41 Paul Allison: Gail... how have you been? Missed you in Orlando.
21:56:59 Paul Allison: How is the bird project going? Has it evolved?
21:56:59 Gail Desler: Missed you too Paul.  I'm good:-)
21:57:05 Andrea Z: We missed Gail in Orlando!!!
21:57:16 Gail Desler: Thanks Andrea
21:57:49 Gail Desler: Bird project is coming along.  4th graders are now blogging with John Muir Laws on how to draw birds
21:59:04 Gail Desler: Answered your call, Susan, but don't hear you:-(
22:00:08 Gail Desler: OK, can I make a formal request to continue conversation on virtual learning?
