 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

 20:04:54  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

 20:07:50  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
