09:50 guest-1293: Hi all
09:51 guest-313: maybe disregard - problem might be on my end
09:52 guest-313: Yep. Problem on my end. Stream sounds fine. Sorry for confusion.
09:54 guest-0: Hi everyone :-)
09:56 guest-0: are any of you planning to participate in Digital Learning Day on Feb. 1? Sounds like an exciting day! http://www.digitallearningday.org/
10:01 guest-0: a bakeoff sounds like fun!!
10:02 guest-319: about to join the hangout, just have to get some diffrent headphones
10:02 guest-0: Hi Kelsey
10:05 guest-1296: Hey there, TTT crew - hoping to join you after a conference call.
10:05 guest-0: Hi Chad
10:05 guest-0: They're just getting going sharing their latest news.
10:06 guest-1296: Hi, Peggy!
10:06 guest-318: Hello
10:07 guest-1296: Hello, Scott -
10:07 guest-0: Hi Scott. I'm changing browsers. I'm getting way too much lag in the video tonight in Firefox
10:08 guest-318: Hi Chad.
10:10 guest-0: is anyone else having problems with video or are you all in the hangout? mine is cutting out a lot
10:10 guest-1293: http://www.amazon.com/Trampling-Out-Vintage-Chavez-Workers/dp/1844677184
10:10 guest-1295: Mine too
10:10 guest-1295: re: video lag
10:10 guest-0: ok-thanks
10:11 guest-1293: me too--getting lag
10:11 guest-0: I changed to Chrome and quit FF but it's still the same.
10:15 guest-318: http://blog.ted.com/2011/10/17/learning-from-a-barefoot-movement-bunker-...
10:16 guest-0: thanks Scott. Have you watched that TED Talk?
10:17 guest-0: I'm hearing better now :-)
10:17 guest-0: the book cover shows up great but not the pages--too small
10:20 guest-318: Yes, I watched it quite a while ago. I usually watch them withing a day or two after they are published
10:20 guest-318: Who is "guest-0"?
10:21 guest-0: sorry-when I changed browsers I forgot to re-enter my name :-)
10:22 guest-318: OH, Hi Peggy!
10:23 guest-0: Hi Scott
10:23 guest-318: @Peggy - I'm scheduling some "road trips" to attend job fairs. If you hear of any in your area please let me know.
10:24 guest-0: I will ask around for you. :-)
10:25 guest-0: is Kelsey in the Hangout?
10:25 guest-318: Yep!
10:26 guest-318: We need to get you there also
10:28 guest-0: I'm interested in learning but I don't feel I can actively contribute in the hangout--except to ask questions which is what I try to do here. Just hard when people in hangout aren't also participating in this chat.
10:29 guest-318: I know... there has to be a way to integrate them better.
10:30 guest-318: I'll help you experiment if you want to try out hangouts sometime
10:30 guest-0: if all hangout people signed into this chat and only used this chat for text it would work
10:30 guest-0: it's too hard for them to speak and have to manage 2 chats
10:31 guest-318: it is hard to do both without a dual monitor setup
10:31 guest-0: which most people don't have
10:31 guest-0: and Paul needs to be concerned about streaming and facilitating the conversation
10:33 guest-0: unconventional final :-)
10:33 guest-0: with a bakeoff :-)
10:33 guest-318: standardized testing vs cupcake wars.
10:33 guest-0: hahaha
10:34 guest-0: it is so hard to follow the conversation in the hangout with the video/audio cutting out so much!
10:35 guest-0: she's absolutely right! testing is based on recall only--no thinking required and real learning isn't measured
10:36 guest-0: I have no idea what Monika just said...
10:39 guest-318: So detox is prompted reflection.....
10:40 guest-0: I really can't understand anything being said in the video--just cutting out way too much. Maybe the recording will be better??? Going to log out. Catch you next week.
10:41 guest-318: OK Peggy. Take care. Hangout is good. recording should be fine
