 Lee-AnneHK -> Room 1: Gotta go - needed in Learning support this morning. Hope you have a great weekend and are not snowed in. Will catch the podcast over the weekend.
 cbrown -> Room 1: I've been listening to "Seedlings" for about a year now, but this is my first time listening live.
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: Thanks Lee-Anne, have a great weekend
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: cbrown, thanks for the feedback! Glad you could join live!
 cbrown -> Room 1: thanks.  I really enjoy what you guys do.
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: Where are you from? Are you part of the ning?
 cbrown -> Room 1: I'm from Maine, but now I work as a HS science teacher in Mass.
 cbrown -> Room 1: I am not part of the ning.
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1:   Here is the ning where we continue or start conversations.
 cbrown -> Room 1: ok.  excellent.
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: Hope you enjoy the live show and chat!
 cbrown -> Room 1: thanks again.
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: This is Christian Long talking about his project with his 10th graders.
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1:
 loonyhiker -> Room 1: i hate i missed this when it was happening but i can't wait to check out the website and read about the whole project
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: Yes Loonyhiker, I know I was out straight and couldn't participate.
 loonyhiker -> Room 1: Just the idea of how engaged these students got into this is exciting!
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: Yes, exactly this is such a great project, a joint project.
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: welcome PeggyG
 Paul Allison -> Room 1: I wonder if we could use BookGlutton to read this together?
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: We have Christian Long on tonight talking about his Alice project
 PeggyG -> Room 1: Hi! so sorry I'm late!! sounds like a great conversation!
 Paul Allison -> Room 1: Great documentation of the learning by students and teachers on the site.
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: yes, it is good stuff
 loonyhiker -> Room 1: i love that "stay messy" :)
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: Yes, stay messy.
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: Hello Gail P.!
 Gail P -> Room 1: hello all
 PeggyG -> Room 1: is Christian in the UK right now?
 cbrown -> Room 1: I never thought about "publicizing" my students work online..
 Paul Allison -> Room 1: A student recently used Alice as a metaphor:
 christianlong -> Room 1: @PeggyG: My email is UK-based...but I live in TX.
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: cbrown, take a chance and do it, there is such a great network out here. Leave a message on the ning also.
 loonyhiker -> Room 1: i love when ppl tweet/plurk asking for comments
 PeggyG -> Room 1: oh that's good to know Christian :-)
 cbrown -> Room 1: I'm thinking it would be great in the context of science.
 Paul Allison -> Room 1: I love when Bob gets passionate, and thinks he is talking too much.
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: Yes loonyhiker, it is great to be involved in projects.
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: yes, it is great isn't it Paul!!
 bobsprankle -> Room 1: lol, paul <blush>
 loonyhiker -> Room 1: by asking ppl to comment, u r inviting them to become a part of the project and it is quite welcoming (to me at least)
 PeggyG -> Room 1: Paul, I saw that post and several others about Ayiti--would love to hear more about that game and the experience of your students playing it. Would you be willing to do a webcast with a couple of students on Women of Web?
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: yes loonyhiker, it is all about making connections and those kids will remember this forever
 Gail P -> Room 1: back again, sorry for the interruption.
 jasonmkern -> Room 1: is it more important to have a portfolio for their *best* work or is it better to show all their work that chronicles their progress and process?
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: no problem Gail, glad you got back here.
 PeggyG -> Room 1: great question jason!
 loonyhiker -> Room 1: @cheryl and it is a great way to get ideas for future possible projects that can be adapted for my own class
 Gail P -> Room 1: And then there's the question of whether or not students want all their work on line
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: jasonmkern, I like the portfolio that demonstrates growth
 loonyhiker -> Room 1: i think growth is more important than just the best
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: Gail P, I bet there are some who would prefer privacy, but most like stuff hung on a bulletin board, so maybe.
 jasonmkern -> Room 1: so do we create two pieces for students? one polished version of the *best of* and a second that gives the whole process? A lot to ask anyone to read everything without some context
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: jasonmkern, great question about work over time.
 Gail P -> Room 1: I have students who don't do their best and posting their work would be an embarrassment
 jasonmkern -> Room 1: Failure is simply a indication of taking a risk often times.
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: I think a student can choose to post drafts and also final projects. Let the student reflect, that is the most important.
 jasonmkern -> Room 1: Teach kids to be willing to fail because they reached for something great
 loonyhiker -> Room 1: @jason my students' portfolios are broken up in different topics so that the final documentation can be the "best" for that topic
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: Gail and Jason, maybe those students should find their voice, photography, media, music, maybe not the blog.
 jasonmkern -> Room 1: @loony but in the end do they present a 'resume' of their best work
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: Risk should never be a failure. Great discussion!
 loonyhiker -> Room 1: @jason i think so - when we apply for a job, we bring a resume filled with the "best" about us, not really about our growth
 cbrown -> Room 1: I like the idea of using document sharing to share kids work with parents directly.
 Gail P -> Room 1: what global archive will you use?
 jasonmkern -> Room 1: if you are transparent in your learing for an extended period of time. asking anyone to read that much would be daunting but having it available if anyone wated to see it and to reflect yourself would be valuable
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: yes, cbrown, it is powerful.
 jasonmkern -> Room 1: @gail does the tool really matter?
 Gail P -> Room 1: I think the tool matters because who is going to hold the work for 10 or 20 years? I'm not.
 loonyhiker -> Room 1: teaching students too reflect at their own growth and being able to actually see how much they have grown is so important too
 PeggyG -> Room 1: I have seen some class blogs where the teachers actually state that the student work is work in progress and not polished, final products
 jasonmkern -> Room 1: is ok then to go back and edit that mispelling although the learning may no longer be 'transparent'?
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: I think it is important that kids own the work and want to go back and refine.
 jasonmkern -> Room 1: @gail no. that's why it goes on the web where it can be available
 alicebarr -> Room 1: remember Zach saying you have to "learn how you learn"
 Gail P -> Room 1: Don't you come across websites where the link no longer work?
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: keeper of the website, quote from Bob.
 PeggyG -> Room 1: I like that thinking!! and agree!
 jasonmkern -> Room 1: yes but how will you ever be able to stop that? we are always responsible for archiving our work no matter where we put it
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: Learn how to learn, is what we want our students to travel.
 Gail P -> Room 1: I pass the work samples on to the next grade teacher and hold nothing on paper. My blog os student learning has a limit and I do not create a new blog each year. I build upon the same one.
 jasonmkern -> Room 1: It is about tech at some level or we wouldn't be having this discussion. I agree that what the students learned was not about tech but the sharing and the importance of the audience certainly is
 jasonmkern -> Room 1: @gail how do you pass the work along
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: Gail P, I like that you build year to year cumulatively. That is longitudinal growth.
 Gail P -> Room 1: Paper work samples which the receiving teacher reviews and the rest is assessment data
 jasonmkern -> Room 1: @gail do you think digitizing that paper at some level would allow for easier archival as well as multiple copies that could be passed along as well as kept?
 Gail P -> Room 1: I have used a number of tech tools like VoiceThread and have these available for anyone to browse but what if VoiceThread fails and disappears.
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: Gail, a quick snapshot of those digital items is all I keep, just in case they disappear. Like GCast doesn't take more audio uploads I hear.
 jasonmkern -> Room 1: @gail then it disappears but if you don't doesn't it disappear anyways
 Gail P -> Room 1: I am not sold on the idea of archiving all work. Personally I wouldn't want all my work on display for the world to see.
 PeggyG -> Room 1: I so wish we didn't have to think about "grades" for these kinds of things!
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: Yes Peggy!
 jasonmkern -> Room 1: @gail I can certainly see that but things like google docs can be private
 Gail P -> Room 1: cheryloakes~seedlings Why do you keep the digital work?
 PeggyG -> Room 1: what a fabulous conversation!!! get this recording posted fast so I can hear the whole thing!!
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: My own digital work as my portfolio, is what I keep.
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: PeggyG it will be posted tomorrw at 6 AM
 jasonmkern -> Room 1: we all learn when we all share
 PeggyG -> Room 1: you're the best Cheryl!! you always post recordings so quickly!!
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: Bob is the best!!
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: Alice and I take care of edtechtalk post
 cbrown -> Room 1: HI.
 Sheila -> Room 1: I wasn't in the chat but I really liked the conversation! Definitely want to listen to the archive!
 PeggyG -> Room 1: I knew Jason knew a whole lot about this!!!! :-)
 jasonmkern -> Room 1: anything that went wrong was my fault
 Sheila -> Room 1: :)
 PeggyG -> Room 1: How exciting to have both of you sharing with us!!
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: no way jasonmker!
 alicebarr -> Room 1:
 loonyhiker -> Room 1: @jason lol don't throw yrself in front of the train
 jasonmkern -> Room 1: :)
 jasonmkern -> Room 1: visibletweets rocks
 cbrown -> Room 1: haven't tried it.
 alicebarr -> Room 1:
 jasonmkern -> Room 1: really cool wallpaper type thing
 PeggyG -> Room 1: try posting educon in visibletweets :-)
 alicebarr -> Room 1:
 Gail P -> Room 1: I like being able to click on a link and it opens in a new tab for browsing later :)
 loonyhiker -> Room 1: i like plurk for that reason - the whole conversation is in one place
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1:
 PeggyG -> Room 1: how do you sign it online?
 bobsprankle -> Room 1:
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1:  it is a webbrowser that you share
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: Haven't tried it but teachers love it
 PeggyG -> Room 1: can you download the pdf with the signature?
 Gail P -> Room 1: @cheryl Thanks for that one; always seem to be looking for that
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: Hi carolteach4, just finishing up
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: peggy, i will give it a try tonight.
 carolteach4 -> Room 1: just got home from conferences
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: Thanks to all in the chat, great show tonight. It will be posted tomorrow.
 PeggyG -> Room 1: I'll try it too Cheryl. Sounds fantastic!
 loonyhiker -> Room 1: this hr. went by so fast! thanks everyone for a great conversation!
 carolteach4 -> Room 1: can you drop in that address again - just got here
 Sheila -> Room 1: Edtech Brainstorm later tonight and Earthcast planning.
 christianlong -> Room 1: Can't wait to read the transcript now...great parallel convo going on!
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: I will mention
 cbrown -> Room 1: Thanks everyone. Really enjoyed it!
 PeggyG -> Room 1: yes Sheila!! we need lots of voices in Earthcast planning :-)
 Sheila -> Room 1: Great show! Thanks all!
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> Room 1: thanks
 jasonmkern -> Room 1: thanks
 Sheila -> Room 1: O-lym-pics!
 carolteach4 -> Room 1: we'll be off, too - we are coming to Maine-

 matt montagne -> Room 1: hey sheila and tom
 ds -> Room 1: hey gang
 Sheila -> Room 1: Hi there!
 Sheila -> Room 1: yeah DS is back!
 ds -> Room 1: thx Sheila, great to be back
 PeggyG -> Room 1: Hi everyone
 PeggyG -> Room 1:
 PeggyG -> Room 1: great to connect up with Doug!!
 PeggyG -> Room 1: yes #3 :-)
 Sheila -> Room 1: Is someone taking notes?
 maryZ -> Room 1: yes
 maryZ -> Room 1: hi
 PeggyG -> Room 1: Sheila-you do such a great job with the notes!
 PeggyG -> Room 1: love your voicethread Mary!
 Sheila -> Room 1: YOu and me Matt! We had some fun together!
 maryZ -> Room 1: thank you peggy. the text was borrowed from matt's
 PeggyG -> Room 1:
 PeggyG -> Room 1: I think the wallwisher is such a great idea
 Sheila -> Room 1: Thanks for taking notes DS!
 PeggyG -> Room 1: had to find the mute on the ustream :-)
 PeggyG -> Room 1: Hi Cathy!!
 Cathy E -> Room 1: Hello All
 PeggyG -> Room 1:
 Sheila -> Room 1:  from Mary
 PeggyG -> Room 1: that's the form we are using to get people to sign up to participate in planning and helping with earthcast
 PeggyG -> Room 1: it's not the signup form for scheduling slots during earthcast10
 PeggyG -> Room 1:  This is our planning wiki with notes from previous meetings (also recording links)
 PeggyG -> Room 1: Hi Carolyn! great to have you join us!!
 PeggyG -> Room 1: In case you missed this link--it's our planning wiki
 carolteach4 -> Room 1: Hi, Matt and all. We didn't get to participate live in the Earthcast last year, but we did get to comment on the VoiceThread. I hope you'll host one of those again.
 maryZ -> Room 1:
 maryZ -> Room 1: Carol there is a voicethread again
 PeggyG -> Room 1: I really hope we'll get some of Matt's grads back!! They were awesome last year!
 maryZ -> Room 1:
 maryZ -> Room 1: one way to get canned content would be to set up some interview questions maybe
 PeggyG -> Room 1: do we want to start posting on the wallwisher now?
 PeggyG -> Room 1: yes I would love to see Youth Voices involved!!
 maryZ -> Room 1: is an example of a software that lets the teacher interview and thte students answer in interactive  audio recordings.
 PeggyG -> Room 1: Hi Sheila
 PeggyG -> Room 1: we're mostly reviewing things Sheila--waiting for you :-)
 Sheila -> Room 1: Yeah, right!  Ha Ha!
 PeggyG -> Room 1: I'm not sure if there is a way to remove posts on wallwisher--does anyone know? maybe just the creator of the wallwisher has that option?
 matt montagne -> Room 1: so this post kind of gives the 411 on Earthcast 2010:
 carolteach4 -> Room 1: Our principal is excited about Skype conferencing - between our school and a sister school in China. Perhaps I can get some students involved on EarthDay 2010. I'll need some help.
 matt montagne -> Room 1: interactivity is something we should really, really aim for
 matt montagne -> Room 1: how can we increase the brainwaves in our listeners who are in a group situation??
 matt montagne -> Room 1: big question, doesn't have easy answers...
 PeggyG -> Room 1: the quiz was really fun!
 matt montagne -> Room 1: the quiz was fun and adds that level of interactivity
 PeggyG -> Room 1: we're thinking about some shorter time slots this year--30 mins--but people could sign up for 2 if they need more time
 PeggyG -> Room 1: the echoes were great and we should definitely keep them going--get more participants :-)
 matt montagne -> Room 1: should be an interesting earth day this year...especially given all the push back that the science of climate change is being called into question once again
 PeggyG -> Room 1: I can edit and/or delete my own post to the wallwisher, but not other people's posts.
 maryz -> Room 1: I like the idea of shorter blocks
 PeggyG -> Room 1: so do I Mary
 PeggyG -> Room 1: easier to provide filler for 30 min slot :-)
 PeggyG -> Room 1: great point Doug re daylight savings time
 maryz -> Room 1: Peggy I will look if it ispossible to invite you and the others as moderators of the wallwisher
 PeggyG -> Room 1: good Mary
 maryz -> Room 1: is anyone familiar with ?
 PeggyG -> Room 1: I added the recording links to the wiki because it helped me to find them :-)
 PeggyG -> Room 1: no Mary-I'm not familiar with it--will explore it soon
 maryz -> Room 1:
 PeggyG -> Room 1: that sounds really interesting! the webheads come up with such fantastic resources!!
 maryz -> Room 1: voxopop
 PeggyG -> Room 1: yes! we need to be able to provide access to people still on dialup
 PeggyG -> Room 1: you can subscribe to voicethreads and have them appear in your voicethread page
 maryz -> Room 1: one of my colleagues in Brazil will have her class contribute to the voicethread
 PeggyG -> Room 1: can we start spreading the word about the preliminary participation form?
 maryz -> Room 1: hi Carolyn
 PeggyG -> Room 1: we can definitely tweet/plurk to our PLNs with the link to the form
 maryz -> Room 1: I was wondering if it would be considered spamming to announce it in webheads?
 maryz -> Room 1: and wikieducator?
 matt montagne -> Room 1: hi carolyn
 maryz -> Room 1: very good
 PeggyG -> Room 1: I don't think the webheads would mind Mary. They like to know about opportunities like this
 maryz -> Room 1: ok Peggy
 carolteach4 -> Room 1: I heard the announcement on Seedlings. It's getting late for us here on the east coast. I got home from school after 8:00pm - conferences tonight. Many of us on east coast are fading - time for bed.
 Cathy E -> Room 1: Have to run - I am going to try and get some of my teachers to sign up :)
 Sheila -> Room 1: bye CathyE
 PeggyG -> Room 1: thanks for coming Carolyn and Cathy
 Sheila -> Room 1: Bye Carolyn!
 carolteach4 -> Room 1:  Congratulations, Matt! How exciting.
 PeggyG -> Room 1: if you do a search for earthbridges on voicethread only last year's voicethread comes up-- has this year's voicethread been made public?
 PeggyG -> Room 1: if you search for earthcast on voicethread this year's comes up Yeah!
 PeggyG -> Room 1: dress rehearsal :-) love it!
 maryz -> Room 1: good, Peggy
 PeggyG -> Room 1: one of the options in our preliminary signup form asks for people to volunteer to help with technical things--maybe we could get help with the dress rehearsal this way
 ds -> Room 1: ooops
 Sheila -> Room 1: Time for music?
 maryz -> Room 1: lost sound?
 ds -> Room 1: lost skype call, it seems--please stand by--don't adjust your sets
 Sheila -> Room 1: :)
 carolteach4 -> Room 1: standing by - going to go and get a cup of coffee
 PeggyG -> Room 1: whew!
 PeggyG -> Room 1: sing Sheila!!
 Sheila -> Room 1: Ok - I"m not streaming so it's safe.
 PeggyG -> Room 1: my browser keeps spinning so I thought it was just me :-)
 maryz -> Room 1: anyone have  good sites for researching environmental issues?
 Sheila -> Room 1: Guess I got the hook.
 PeggyG -> Room 1: Diigo :-)
 maryz -> Room 1: Maybe we could ask carolyn to share some of her  recommendations
 maryz -> Room 1: thanks for diigo
 ds -> Room 1: seems as tho Matt's machine has crashed--hoping he'll be back soon
 PeggyG -> Room 1: I like Diigo because I can get recommendations from trusted colleagues
 ds -> Room 1:
 matt montagne -> Room 1: sorry about that folks
 matt montagne -> Room 1: thanks DS
 ds -> Room 1: brb
 ds -> Room 1: back
 maryz -> Room 1: I'm around
 maryz -> Room 1: march 4th
 carolteach4 -> Room 1: Who did the logo for the Voice Thread 2010
 maryz -> Room 1: I made the logo
 maryz -> Room 1: I used cliart from phillip martins 9the friends, and photos from widimedia (globe) adm the stars were from nasa
 carolteach4 -> Room 1: I like the inclusion of the kids in wheelchairs - nice
 maryz -> Room 1: Phillip martins is so inclusive of all groups in his art
 carolteach4 -> Room 1: I was the first one to leave a comment on Matt's voicethread last year. Should I claim that spot this year?
 maryz -> Room 1: the  link to what?
 maryz -> Room 1: what link did you need posted to the wall wisher?
 maryz -> Room 1: either voice thread or a blog where you can embedd all teh videos
 maryz -> Room 1: great idea  response videos
 carolteach4 -> Room 1: I think the YouTube, TeacherTube sounds cool.
 carolteach4 -> Room 1: Can you do a brief tutorial, Matt, on YouTube on how to do a broadcast. Or maybe you already have something out there.
 carolteach4 -> Room 1: Will, do, Matt! You got me started. We are right now in the process of connecting our two middle schools in Orange and Bethany using Voice Thread
 carolteach4 -> Room 1: It is fine - carol - carolyn - love being acknowledged. Thank you all!
 carolteach4 -> Room 1: @Peggy - your Saturday shows are so fabulous! Thanks so much for providing them. I love the one with CivilWarSallie.
 carolteach4 -> Room 1: lost audio again - sounds like bubbles
 carolteach4 -> Room 1: I got involved in artsnacks from the civilwarsallie show.
 Sheila -> Room 1: With Kevin Honeycutt?
 Sheila -> Room 1: Artsnacks
 carolteach4 -> Room 1: Yes, that's my Skype name. My son was just talking to me so I missed a bit of what your were saying.
 carolteach4 -> Room 1: Hey, Sheila - heading up north on Saturday or Sunday and will probably stop over night in Exeter or Portsmouth.
 Sheila -> Room 1: I'll be around! :)
 carolteach4 -> Room 1: Thanks - this was worth staying awake for!
 ds -> Room 1: thanks all--take care and enjoy the rest of your week
 Sheila -> Room 1: Thanks for the time slot DS!
 ds -> Room 1: thx again Matt for hosting--much appreciated
 ds -> Room 1: a pleasure Sheila
 carolteach4 -> Room 1: I have a FABULOUS song from Anne Dodson - about "big green trees". Maybe with her permission, she'll let us use it.
 carolteach4 -> Room 1: This is a great song!
 matt montagne -> Room 1: it is a fun song...we interviewed him on Earthcast last year
 matt montagne -> Room 1: he is a nice guy
