19:44:13 DanWickedDecent I'm trying to find a version that doesn't autoplay
19:44:27 jan smith It sort of blows you off your chair if you aren't ready for it
19:44:54 bobsprankle glad to hear that dan! yeah... it keeps scaring the dog
19:44:57 jan smith (my 13 yr old just got an electirc guitar, so your site may be quieter

19:46:45 mrsdurff hi mhall
19:46:48 JeffWickedDecent Any WDL listeners out there?
19:46:59 mrsdurff hi peggy
19:47:12 jan smith Ok, can you wicked decent guys pronounce "Ayuh!" for us--is it a Maine thing? Or am I just too old?
19:47:41 mrsdurff translation?
19:47:54 Lisa Parisi This is new to be Jeff. Will be checking it out after the show.
19:47:58 cheryloakes~seedlings it is an affirmation
19:48:02 jan smith I don't know durff, it's on the blog
19:48:05 Lisa Parisi new to me...not new to be
19:48:18 PeggyGeorge had to log in again and now there's two of me --oh dear!
19:48:50 jan smith It's like yut yut yut.
19:48:51 TimLevesque I feel a little out of place here..anyone else from "The County" here?
19:48:53 cheryloakes~seedlings Peggy, you have cloned yourself
19:48:55 alicebarr @Peggy the more the merrier
19:49:01 Lisa Parisi Now I get to learn about a whole new Maine language
19:49:09 PeggyGeorge that's scary!!
19:49:09 jan smith The scoopy breath is very eastern canada too.
19:49:20 mrsdurff oh my...we have fallen in our level of conversation
19:49:31 jan smith (Sorry , I got you off topic...:)
19:49:37 mrsdurff hi crista
19:49:38 cheryloakes~seedlings it is a Maine thingy
19:49:54 mrsdurff you Maine people
19:50:19 DanWickedDecent we're a rare breed up here
19:50:30 TimLevesque We get understand "the language" here...we just don't condone it.
19:50:32 mrsdurff I can see that
19:50:41 DanWickedDecent if you've ever heard WDL, you know the danger of getting Dan & Jeff off topic
19:50:56 mrsdurff I need to listen
19:51:25 cheryloakes~seedlings we really did start out with education purpose and teaching and learning.
19:51:39 bobsprankle it really was amazing
19:52:30 cheryloakes~seedlings hello just saw crista stopped by, hello,
19:53:36 Crista Hi there!
19:54:00 PeggyGeorge http://wickeddecentlearning.blogspot.com/ is this the right link for the podcast blog?
19:54:11 mrsdurff I remember dialup
19:54:12 DanWickedDecent yup!
19:54:20 alicebarr Those packets are still available at http://www.actem.org/pages/Actem_Seed/index
19:54:46 jan smith Ok, I am still teaching some to make folders & use tabs on a browser :)
19:54:50 TimLevesque remember the term..baud
19:54:59 mrsdurff I have to be polite when faculty at my school are so proud about creating webquests
19:55:02 cheryloakes~seedlings yes peggy, you will get music
19:55:06 jan smith As in nice baud?
19:55:16 PeggyGeorge sure did :-)
19:55:19 TimLevesque lol
19:55:26 derrallg ok, back a teacher deleted her entrourage acct throught the district server
19:55:37 cheryloakes~seedlings Durff, absolutely, I am encouraging a new teacher to try webquests, it is a good solid place for folks to start.
19:55:44 lorenchuk @mrsdurff - me too, that and powerpoint, still
19:55:49 DanWickedDecent webquests still have the potential to be very exhilibarting and effective learnign experiences -- but there are just so many bad ones and misapplied theory
19:56:23 mrsdurff but they are a start
19:56:32 mrsdurff hi sheila
19:56:33 cheryloakes~seedlings they are a good start, I believe.
19:56:37 cheryloakes~seedlings Welcome Shelia!!
19:56:39 derrallg I haven't really used webquests in a long time
19:56:50 sheila Hi all! Multiple crashes but finally here!
19:56:58 derrallg Hi Sheila
19:57:04 alicebarr Hi Sheila
19:57:09 mrsdurff not car crashes i hope
19:57:12 sheila Hey everyone! :)
19:57:14 cheryloakes~seedlings I was looking at the whole webquest and it not only is good for technology but it is a good thing for teachers who need to differentiate and teach to small gropus
19:57:17 cheryloakes~seedlings groups.
19:57:25 PeggyGeorge there is definitely a need for mentoring and support in learning new things
19:57:31 lorenchuk the best learning occurs when the students can create quality webquests or hypermedia projects on their own
19:57:32 sheila Just computer crashes :)
19:57:33 cheryloakes~seedlings Shelia, we had many snafus at the beginning
19:58:11 cheryloakes~seedlings Oh, Lorenchuk, that is the perfect point!!! When teachers use them then kids create, it is the best.
19:58:14 Lisa Parisi Hello Sheila
19:58:16 DanWickedDecent powerpoints aren't inherently bad either -- just misseused
19:58:20 jan smith oops
19:58:24 sheila Hey Lisa!
19:58:27 mrsdurff welcome back jan
19:58:32 cheryloakes~seedlings glad you came back Jan
19:58:39 PeggyGeorge so glad you made it Sheila--perseverance!!
19:58:45 jan smith Sorry finger trouble
19:59:02 lorenchuk @chreryloakes yes, the time is the issue
19:59:21 TimLevesque I remember having to program out bad sectors on new hard drives..
19:59:37 cheryloakes~seedlings Tim, whew! I still don't know what that is.
19:59:40 jan smith I just wish there was a way to show teachers how much they have grown, even with little steps.
19:59:51 PeggyGeorge the technology is winning this afternoon/evening. My first login just disappeared all on it's own :-)
19:59:53 lorenchuk @DanWicked Decent, now all the tools can adapt but they so quickly descend
20:00:11 cheryloakes~seedlings Peggy, maybe your clone has gone t o another show?
20:00:23 lorenchuk :-)
20:00:48 TimLevesque Speaking of voice recognition...has anyone found anything better than Naturally Speaking?
20:00:48 PeggyGeorge funny Cheryl!!
20:00:55 Lisa Parisi Have to head out. Thanks for the learning. Can't wait to check out the show. bye all.
20:01:07 alicebarr BYe Lisa! Thanks for coming!
20:01:12 derrallg bye Lisa
20:01:19 bobsprankle by e lisa!
20:01:29 PeggyGeorge I use the text-to-speech built into my Mac. It works pretty well!
20:01:43 PeggyGeorge bye Lisa
20:01:46 cheryloakes~seedlings Peggy, yes, I like to show kids how to use that.
20:02:06 jan smith I guess there needs to be consolidation time
20:02:18 bobsprankle @peggy it's gotten much better since the early days!
20:02:27 PeggyGeorge I think it has too
20:02:44 mrsdurff We don't have inspiration
20:02:55 derrallg If I just go by teachers around me I don't think I'd be motivated to continue to stretch my use of the tools in the classroom
20:02:59 alicebarr @durff Inspiration is now online free
20:03:02 mrsdurff some machines don't have Word
20:03:05 alicebarr wespiration.com
20:03:08 jan smith there is CMAP (free)
20:03:11 PeggyGeorge have you tried the free online version of Inspiration-mywebspiration.com
20:03:14 alicebarr webspiration.com
20:03:16 mrsdurff we can't download anything
20:03:20 mrsdurff hi kern
20:03:20 TimLevesque wait ..it's free now?
20:03:26 lorenchuk We stay with what is safe, large scale use with advanced thinking and problem solving is harder to advance
20:03:31 Kern Hey Druff
20:03:32 alicebarr @Tim for now
20:03:32 derrallg @alice someone said its only free until March, not sure though
20:03:37 cheryloakes~seedlings Durff, you can't download, that is absurd
20:03:40 PeggyGeorge think it's http://www.mywebspiration.com ??
20:03:41 mrsdurff our IT is a piece of work
20:03:46 Kern Is that Jeff and Dan!
20:03:49 mrsdurff power hungry
20:03:50 alicebarr @derrallg Ah I wondered for how long! Thanks
20:03:56 cheryloakes~seedlings hey Kern,welcome
20:04:02 Kern Hi Cheryl
20:04:10 bobsprankle hey kern!
20:04:11 alicebarr HI Kern
20:04:14 mrsdurff yes cheryl it is absurd
20:04:14 cheryloakes~seedlings Yes, Kern.
20:04:24 mrsdurff my job is absurd
20:04:24 cheryloakes~seedlings Dan and Jeff Wicked decent
20:04:28 Kern Hi there Alice, Bob
20:04:39 mrsdurff i need a new job
20:04:39 JeffWickedDecent Hey Kern
20:04:47 cheryloakes~seedlings Durff, you are such a leader and your kids must love you.
20:04:54 TimLevesque I built a jeopardy game in power point once
20:04:57 DanWickedDecent Dan is hyper audiotorially distractable -- so forgive me if I'm not as active in the chat
20:04:59 mrsdurff don't tell anyone
20:05:02 adinasullivan @Durff I can't download anything anymore either. ALl rights removed from everyone but IT over the summer
20:05:12 mrsdurff i teach them how to go around the filters
20:05:19 cheryloakes~seedlings Oh, adina, that is just terrible.
20:05:33 lorenchuk cmap is really simple, there is bubble.com (or org) free, not as many pictures and symbols but free
20:05:37 derrallg what did DAvid Byrne do?
20:05:38 mrsdurff flash drives do wonders adina
20:05:47 TimLevesque It annoys me how powerpoint is overused and misused..such a powerful tool and people dont even realize the potential :(
20:05:54 alicebarr @Derrallg Talking Heads
20:05:55 adinasullivan @durff yes ma'am the do
20:06:02 mrsdurff shhhh!
20:06:06 JeffWickedDecent http://cdx-thegame.com/ is the game I was talking about
20:06:10 lorenchuk @Tim Me too
20:06:12 Kern Speaking of 'Choose your own adventures' anyone else seen this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8rJ1WML60Y
20:06:27 TimLevesque haha
20:06:29 TimLevesque ghostbusters
20:06:29 derrallg I was addicted to music blogs last month and I've been breaking laws downloading :(
20:06:33 mrsdurff talk to a kid with a cellphone
20:06:40 mrsdurff = no filter
20:06:52 mrsdurff they do facebook all day long
20:06:56 PeggyGeorge I got it in the Seedlings chat :-) very helpful!
20:07:06 alicebarr @Kern Yes! Amazing
20:07:17 TimLevesque @mrsdurff surround your school in aluminum foil..block all frequencies lol
20:07:43 mrsdurff i think not
20:07:49 lorenchuk in Maine that must be cold
20:07:50 cheryloakes~seedlings oh Tim, very funny
20:08:00 Kern @alice it inspired a couple of my kids to make something similar (but more appropriate ;)
20:08:05 derrallg @TimLevesque recreate Andy Warhols Factory
20:08:13 mrsdurff i want to teach learners how to exploit the technology not block it
20:08:18 alicebarr @Kern :)
20:08:42 alicebarr @lorenchuk it's getting colder tonight
20:08:51 Kern I listen!
20:08:55 mrsdurff ok everyone - listen to WDL
20:09:04 PeggyGeorge great question Cheryl!
20:09:05 cheryloakes~seedlings you got it durff.
20:09:06 mrsdurff raise their stats
20:09:15 cheryloakes~seedlings thanks PeggyG
20:09:20 cheryloakes~seedlings anyone in the chat with questions.
20:09:42 mrsdurff i have parents listening multiple times to the K & 1st graders
20:09:48 cheryloakes~seedlings These guys are teachers like all of us. Look what they've done.
20:09:48 TimLevesque @derrallg I had to look up the factory...that's exactly what her school would like afterward though :)
20:09:59 mrsdurff the stats show me and parents tell me
20:10:15 cheryloakes~seedlings Durff, that is satisfying
20:10:29 mrsdurff teachers who are possibly touched in the head?
20:10:36 JeffWickedDecent http://blubrry.com/ is our new podcast hosting service
20:10:44 cheryloakes~seedlings like the rest of us:-)
20:10:56 Crista People like me (Montana...)
20:10:57 mrsdurff it means i should give up planning periods for it
20:11:06 lorenchuk I haven't opened the website yet because of the music warning
20:11:17 cheryloakes~seedlings Yeah Crista, like us in Maine
20:11:34 derrallg @lorenchuk the player is towards the top so you can pause it quickly :)
20:11:53 PeggyGeorge @lorenchuk--wise!! but you can pause it pretty quickly :-)
20:12:02 TimLevesque @lorenchuk yeh the warning helps..I didn't know music was coming so it confused me..i was looking for where it was coming from
20:12:12 sheila What resources do they use to remain current?
20:12:17 Crista Hope that made sense...forgot I had paused "me in Montana" was about distant listeners ;)
20:12:27 derrallg @Sheila that's a good question
20:12:29 lorenchuk ok, here goes, It always worries me when live that my sound will invade yours
20:13:03 cheryloakes~seedlings it doesn't lorenchuk, don't worry, but it is startling
20:13:21 PeggyGeorge I think you SHOULD promote yourselves! How could they resist your enthusiasm?
