09:42:52 ericbaber: Graham/Jeff, I'm having trouble accessing the WindowsMedia stream. When I click the link it shows me the content of the .asx file rather than firing up the MediaPlayer. Any idea why this might be? (I'm using Firefox, and have used the MP before).
09:43:13 JeffLebow: If you're using Netscape or firefox that will happen
09:43:29 GrahamStanley: I'm using Firefox, but am listening through iTunes

09:44:08 Sus_Denmark: :wonders if this chat room has an upper limit?
09:44:29 GrahamStanley: Why's that Paula? for my range of gadgets or because I like vodka martinis?

10:03:46 Sus_Denmark: when you're ijn the Skype conference,please turn off your Player
10:03:56 ericbaber: Susan, if you want to listen in, only leave your RealPlayer open (i.e. turn off your Skype)
10:04:07 Susan_Marandi: I'm new to this
10:04:08 Janeap: How do I join the skype conference
10:04:10 Susan_Marandi: I see
10:04:17 Sus_Denmark: which one depends on what Player your computer system prefers
10:04:23 Susan_Marandi: so, skype is just for talking, not necessary for listening?
10:04:25 Daf: add worldbridges to your contacts
10:04:29 Cristina_Costa: have we started yet?
10:04:31 Elizabeth_Hanson-Smith: OK--teleconf is down
10:04:36 Daf: not yet, cristina
10:04:36 Sus_Denmark: the reason for not having the Player running is because of the time lag asnd echo
10:04:36 ericbaber: Exactly, Susan. And skype is limited to only 5 people.
10:04:49 Susan_Marandi: oh, thanks for all your help
10:04:54 philrad56: Is this the podcasting place?

[JohnMartin] Can we handle any more of that
[JeffLebow] can never get enough...
[JeffLebow] Want to do a chaoscast Scott?
[JeffLebow] Get the kids on for some pre-show fun
[JeffLebow] perhaps some tunes
[scott] I wish I could be 8000 miles away making fun suggestion, ;)
[scott] BBL, lum

[Jason] it's funny...most people say i am shy until they get to know might not be able to shut me up....
[Jason] oh, i have the skype....

[JohnMartin] Hey Barbara great to have you back
[JohnMartin] Hey Lyndall
[JohnMartin] Great job last week
[JeffLebow] Timothy, great to see you here. Thanks much for the email. Sorry we haven't gotten back to you yet
[Lyndall] Hello all
[barbara] I have my bullwhip with me...ready to roll
[Jeff_from_Ann_Arbor] Welcome back Lyndall
[Lyndall] It's nice to come home again
[JeffLebow] Any North Americans out there are encouraged to join in via 1-402-756-9000, access code 537267#
[timothy_mckean] Thanks... very excited to be here for the first time
[JeffLebow] Non-North Americans can do the same, but skyping out to the teleconference....1.9 euro cents/minute
[barbara] did we lose the audio?
dave has joined the chat.
[barbara] I am sorry dave the chat rioom is full
[dave] greetings
[dave] lol
[erin] hey defe-a
[dave] timothy... have you gotten you're skype hooked up yet?
Lyndall has left the chat.
Lyndall has joined the chat.
[timothy_mckean] I just installed it about 10 minutes ago
[dave] great
[timothy_mckean] haven't used it yet though
[Lyndall] I'm just going to listen today - my connection problems are still unresolved
[dave] timothy b. mckean?
[timothy_mckean] yes...
[JeffLebow] We'll have to troubleshoot them sometime Lyndall... feel free to skype sometime and we can experiment
[barbara] Plymouth State in New Hampshire?
[JohnMartin] Catnapping
[Lyndall] Thanks Jeff - I suspect it is my ISP
[JohnMartin] Yes Barbara
[barbara] know it well
[JohnMartin] Oh really?
[barbara] Family there
[JohnMartin] What a small world!
[Lyndall] I will stay in the chat until I drop off again, but I'll be listening
[Art_Gelwicks] Definitely more on the prof. dev. topic.
Jason has left the chat.
[barbara] I am puzzled as to why ppt is still considered an essential tool in professional development...comments?
Jason has joined the chat.
[Art_Gelwicks] Adult skills can be so ranged that it makes course development and execution difficult at times.
[dave] crazy weird for design
[Art_Gelwicks] Think crayons and construction paper. It's that mindset.
[barbara] so can students' too... i think that is where we left off last time
[dave] shh... barbara.
[dave] quiet now.
[Jeff_from_Ann_Arbor] In my world 80% of my colleagues are not able to use PPT
[dave] :)
[Art_Gelwicks] I have colleagues that use PPT to design web sites...go figure.
[Jason] In my world, 80% can't use powerpoint, of the 20% that do, they don't use it very effectively....
[barbara] Hasnl;t it become a crutch?
[barbara] Pretty pictures vs content?
[scott] David Byrne formerly of the Talking Heads has been using PowerPoint as an arte forme!! Anyone seen it?
[erin] to be fair, pretty pictures vs. content isn't an issue of how the program works.
[barbara] do tell erin
[erin] it's how the program is used.
[Art_Gelwicks] As a speaker, yes it has become a crutch to far too many presenters.
[barbara] and used poorly?
[dave] powerpoint ninjas
[erin] exactly.
[Art_Gelwicks] Bring back overheads!
[barbara] it is used for reading remediation: they show it and read it
[barbara] zzzzz
[timothy_mckean] I'm looking into using acrobat pdf files instead of PPT to guarantee that fonts and other things aooear as you want them even if
[Jason] Ugh to overheads. :) I am glad that I don't have all the marker stains on my clothes and hands anymore
[scott] I can't count how many times I go to talks where the speaker reads his/her powerpoint slides to the audience.
[timothy_mckean] you switch computers or platforms
[dave] i can read (albeit barely) it irritates me when people read to me
[barbara] I think we should organize a conference on technology and declare it a ppt free zone
[barbara] could it happen?
[erin] not to mention overheads separate the teacher from their audience, physically.
[erin] i don't think so, b.
[Art_Gelwicks] A presenter should be able to present their topic effectively with or without PPT. It should be an enhancement, not the pres.
[JohnMartin] PPT drives me nuts but it is almost a security blanket for many
[barbara] art, yes
[timothy_mckean] exactly Scott... might as well just e-mail it to me and I can stay home
[barbara] yes
[Art_Gelwicks] Have a tech conference and hide all the power cables to the LCD projectors!
[erin] yes. ppt should be used to present ancillary materials, only.
[JohnMartin] Ha
[barbara] the best ppt I ever saw was one slide... the presenter didn;t need anything but a backdrop. he knew his stuff and engaged the
[Jason] amusing :)
[JohnMartin] PPT as a Bill Gates-way drug
[barbara] audience ina dialogue
[timothy_mckean] Like any tool, it can be used for good or evil
[Art_Gelwicks] This PPT presentation brought to you by Prozac.
[JohnMartin] PPT and CMS - same control freak issues?
[timothy_mckean] PPT... doesn't make you a good speaker?
[barbara] absolutely not!
[timothy_mckean] ;)
[Art_Gelwicks] Just gives the audience something to look at while they tune you out.
Lyndall has left the chat.
[JohnMartin] How do you follow up on Thursday night
[Art_Gelwicks] I always wanted to do a presentation where the slides had nothing to do with the topic I was speaking about.
[barbara] and the amount of time people spend diddling with the colors and backgrounds
[JohnMartin] Oh dear lord yet
[JohnMartin] yes
[timothy_mckean] want to continue from Thursday?
[Art_Gelwicks] Slashdot picked up a BusinessWeek article about the "MySpace Generation".
[JohnMartin] I had a Supt who nearly killed our staff with PPT poisoning
[dave] competent?
[dave] who can he mean?
[dave] certainly not me
[dave] must be barbara
[Art_Gelwicks] PTPD - Post Traumatic Powerpoint Disorder.
[scott] how about Mac vs Windows? that's alway contentious. ;)
[barbara] dave suggested marijuana, i think...
[erin] summary: elgg sucks.
[erin] :)
[barbara] thank you erin
[Art_Gelwicks] Who's he calling a professional?
[Art_Gelwicks] :)
[timothy_mckean] use of packaged tools, rather than individual pieces available on the mainstream internet...
[barbara] dead air?
[Art_Gelwicks] chirp chirp
[erin] the point about student disclosure is about connecting the academic and personal blogs.
[barbara] looking for the headset...dave;s cat took mijne too
[timothy_mckean] I think that it's absolutely appropraite to have a dedicated educational environment..
[JohnMartin] Wouldn't it be nice for a learner to be able to carry their learning artifacts with them throughout their learning career
[timothy_mckean] so that students don't have to disclose their personal blogs in the classes
[JohnMartin] Rather than them being locked in a proprietary CMS or other one-way tech solution
[erin] john: they can. but do they use them?
[barbara] learnign artifacts?
[Art_Gelwicks] Aren't those called books?
[erin] and you can have separate blogs without having a separate, closed, educational environment.
[barbara] and what about people who don't want to blog?
[timothy_mckean] I haven't used htem before, but can't they archive the work that they do in them?
[scott] can they pass the class if they don't blog?
[Art_Gelwicks] Think about this...500 years ago we have documents to study for history...
[dave] and those students who don't want to study math
[erin] a closed environment doesn't allow access by others, which can be really quite beneficial.
[Art_Gelwicks] what will be studied on us 500 years from now? Blogs?
[barbara] yes, but the question is about whether we are making assumptions here... that they are comfortable (cuz they are younger) that
[timothy_mckean] I agree with Dave.... when did kids start choosing what they want to do?
[barbara] they want to interacty with a class 9which they may not)
[JohnMartin] Sorry about the term artifacts - my former boss is doing his dissertation on electronic portfolios
[barbara] what is an artifact?
[erin] i don't understand why blogging needs to be social.
[barbara] or hy our assumption is that blogging is social
[Art_Gelwicks] I don't think it's a matter of's a matter of is there a benefit from it.
[timothy_mckean] I think that the blogs can be private or social...
[JohnMartin] How can blogging not be social? Maybe we need to define what we mean by the term
[scott] isn't an artifact a product of students' work/learning that others can use/observe.
[timothy_mckean] I think that certain age groups certainly need the structure that the CMS provides.
[erin] blogging is just like keeping a journal. it all depends on who you show it to.
[barbara] because there are people who blog just for themseleve... we assume thatb thye want to link but some people don't.
[JohnMartin] Ackk
[barbara] Remember when your older sister/ younger brother found your diary? Same idea/
[JohnMartin] Is blogging just another form of journaling? I don't know if I buy that
[JohnMartin] It can be for sure
[erin] maybe learners want to be able to fumble around in private instead of for an audience.
[erin] john: why not?
[timothy_mckean] can't one set up a blog on the computer, not on the internet... if they want to keep it private?
[scott] most "normal" folk I talk to think of a blog as the same thing as diary - by "normal" I mean non-blogger.
[timothy_mckean] Erin... is that an argument for an enclosed learnig environment?
[dave] hee hee
[erin] no, it's not at all.
[JohnMartin] It just seems to me that blogging can be as much a tool for interaction and discourse as it is to be a stand along diary
[JohnMartin] Some use blogs as electronic portfolios
[erin] it's an argument for teachers to not choose for their students whether their work is public or private.
[JohnMartin] Barbara Ganley uses them in her creative writing class
[dave] for what... that's the question. what are we trying to teach. If content is becoming irrelevant, or at least losing value, what
[dave] are we trying to teach?
[JohnMartin] It is a way to propose, develop, refine and test our ideas against a broader audience
[barbara] And shall we go down the "language" path?
[JohnMartin] What do you mean barbara?
[Jeff_from_Ann_Arbor] Timothy McKean can we get you into the audio conversation?
[timothy_mckean] to me... the purpose of blogging is to make your ideas public... if you dont want it public why blog?
[erin] tim: many blog for themselves.
[scott] good point timothy
[JeffLebow] are you on the teleconference yet?
[JohnMartin] But to what end Erin? Wouldn't a Word document be a safer less public alternative?
[erin] blogging online allows one to blog privately, and if at some later point they want to make it public it's as easy as telling
[erin] others where to find the blog.
[barbara] Are we to assume that the language our students use in a blog (for their teachers, for the class) is their language...
[scott] Dave Winer would say if it's not for a wider audience then it is not blogging!
[barbara] or a language that is created in order to please the teacher?
[timothy_mckean] why blog for themsleves..... right... why not just write in a word processor?
[dave] what does he know about the internet scott? :)
[JohnMartin] Which isn't much different from what they hand in as papers in class, wouldn't you say barbara?
[erin] well, for at least one very technical reason: to have offsite backup.
[Art_Gelwicks] If you write a blog and nobody reads it still a blog?
[barbara] Yes it is different john because it is not being given to the is being given to everyone
[JohnMartin] Very good Erin!
[barbara] and everyone can comment, dissect, shred
[dave] art... that was very interesting, would you like to elaborate on your position
[erin] current tools also allow users to decide who has access to what on a post by post basis.
[barbara] Dave's cat took my mike too...
[erin] livejournal, for instance.
[Art_Gelwicks] Well, if I write a blog and no one reads it, how is it different than writing a Word doc and storing it locally?
[Art_Gelwicks] Is it all in the intent to share?
[Jason] hi folks! :)
[timothy_mckean] in a special environmant can one limit access to just the teacher?
[dave] trees... blogs.. they have so many things in common
[scott] thanks Jason
[Art_Gelwicks] Bloghugger.
[barbara] tech difficulties...need to move from the wireless machine
[dave] nicuh
[JohnMartin] And how many are aware that their blog is very public unless they take steps to restrict access
[JeffLebow] roger that
[JohnMartin] Assuming they can with their blog solution
[dave] that's good, i like bloghugger
[erin] blogging also allows easy access from many computers.
[Art_Gelwicks] True...but you can do that with Writely and most web CMS as well.
[erin] you can write something, submit it, and go to another computer later to finish or edit without trying to figure out how to
[erin] transport the file.
[Art_Gelwicks] It still seems to me to focus on the intent to share.
[erin] yes, the question was about word vs. blogging, though.
[Art_Gelwicks] Those of us who don't have to math divisible by 100 use Farenheit.
[JohnMartin] True, local v. global access
[erin] local vs. remote. if blogging was inherently about sharing, then everyone who blogged would share.
[JohnMartin] This is a classroom too !!!
[Jason] yay! :)
[scott] hey Timothy
[Art_Gelwicks] So again...if you don't share, is it truly a blog?
[erin] yes, it is.
[erin] if you have a car, and you don't drive it, is it still a car?
[erin] duh.
[Art_Gelwicks] So a blog is basically just a running text piece? Nothing more?
[scott] not if it's out of gas
[erin] i completely disagree. blogging does not have to be shared.
[Art_Gelwicks] So the word document that I post on an FTP server on the web is a blog?
[scott] then it's a bucket of bolts
[erin] publishing is d than sharing.
[Art_Gelwicks] And the PDF file I throw into BitTorrent is a blog?
[JohnMartin] The technology is still a blog, but in philosophy many would disagree
[erin] i can publish a blog without telling anyone about it.
[dave] no. i'm not saying that either
[dave] yes you can
[erin] and it's still a blog.
[dave] but blogging is public
[Art_Gelwicks] And I can write a journal page in HTML and it's not a blog by definition then.
[dave] wether or not people read ti
[barbara] it doesn;t have to be!
[JohnMartin] And did you lock your account behind a username / password or is it being indexed by Google?
[dave] or wether you restrict it
[erin] if i have an email account and i only use it for file storage, is it still an email account?
[scott] right Art, it's gotta have the RSS angle for it to be blog
[barbara] or you have to tell people about it
[barbara] thank you art
[JohnMartin] But again - many don't realize that when they launch a Wordpress or Blogger blog that they are in the public view
[scott] If a troll doesn't hijack a chatroom with false analogies is it still a troll?
[Art_Gelwicks] That's true JM. As a web developer, I still think many people think of it as an easy way to update a site...not as an online
[Art_Gelwicks] journal
[dave] ROTFL scott
[scott] ;)
[barbara] To be fair, p[eople, dontcha think that the users may have hijacked the orginal intent of the blog to make it "educational"
[barbara] connectivity
[dave] which users?
[JohnMartin] What was the original intent and does an original intent ever stay in stasis?
[barbara] the people who want to use blogs as a tool to conenct others...
[dave] what was the 'original intent' that was hijacked?
[JohnMartin] I am amazed by the number of my students who have the accounts
[JohnMartin] Of course I do to - mySpace that is
[JohnMartin] Gotta stay hip, or whatevah
[barbara] to be able to write...just write for the sake of writing...but not particularly wanting to SHARE anything
[Jason] A lot of my students use myspace accounts....they told me to get one, I did, and suddenly I have 60 student "friends" added..
[JohnMartin] Is extremely valuable
[Jason] Instant community....
[dave] are you sure that was the 'original intent'?
[JohnMartin] But sharing is another critical component of learning and evolving as an individual
[barbara] writing is not the intent of a blog?
[barbara] do tell
[erin] they might not want to make available to the whole class what they do in their educational blog, either.
[JohnMartin] Maybe it was never about the writing per se but about the ability to communicate in a different way
[Jason] My view: mySpace is easy to use...I think students like finding other kids.....
[JohnMartin] mySpace is about seeing and being seen
[erin] it doesn't matter what it was about, it matters what it *is* about. if we're going to move from teacher-centrism to
[erin] student-centrism, you can't assume one intent!
[JohnMartin] Absolutely erin!
[barbara] and along with that you cannot assume that they want to be connected either
[JohnMartin] But I would argue that we lose when we move from one extreme to another
[scott] is it not the distribution/syndication functionality that makes "IT" a blog? If one write's only for oneself, why have rss feed?
[JohnMartin] Teacher-centrism forgets the student
[erin] student-centrism isn't an extreme.
[JohnMartin] Student-centrism assumes they don't need guidance or learning assistance
[Art_Gelwicks] MySpace users must be 14 to join. TOS
[erin] it just means the focus is more largely on what the students want and need.
[erin] not what the teacher thinks the students want and need.
[erin] student-centrism encourages teachers to stop assuming they know what's best for students.
[JohnMartin] I don't disagree, I just worry that many seem to assume that the pendulum swings too far in the other direction
[erin] can you explain that further?
barbara has left the chat.
[Jason] I don't think it is...there is no Microsoft branding
[dave] now i can write again
[dave] don't know what happened
[dave] I just want to say. I agree.
[barbara] did we all fall off?
[Jason] Jason? Wrong guy.... :)
[barbara] You agree about what?
[JohnMartin] You, Erin and Dave all dropped out
[erin] i fell off but it was my fault.
[JohnMartin] We got worried
[dave] i dropped myself out. browser issue.
[barbara] lemmings jumping off the cliff?
[erin] lol
[JohnMartin] Can I come too?
[scott] ;)
[barbara] I had to switch machines
[erin] john: can you explain your point about the pendulum?
[erin] i love
[erin] but you're completely right. it can be sooo inappropriate for a 14-year-old
[JohnMartin] Yeah just ask the folks in Australia,
[Jason] i am amused by it too, but.....
[JohnMartin] Blogs are blocked but they found the porn
[dave] you're right john
[dave] like somehow the blogs are the problem
[JohnMartin] It's the filtering system that so many institutions either choose or are forced to deploy that are often the root of the prob
[scott] so it sounds like the teachers need to be trained how to equip the kids to navigate the net-environment
[scott] who is gonna train the teachers?
[erin] should that be the job of teachers? or parents?
[JohnMartin] There is a difference
[Art_Gelwicks] In most cases neither one is ready for the job.
[erin] but who does the job ultimately fall to?
[JohnMartin] The teachers seem to bear the brunt
[Art_Gelwicks] It has to go to both.
[JohnMartin] But I would argue for the parents
[Jason] teachers. very much so....many kids don't have access to the technology or the parents the skill to teach skills
[scott] Three cheers for Rupert Murdoch! harumph
[erin] unfortunately, kids usually learn how to navigate the web for themselves.
[Art_Gelwicks] Is it "higher" education or "hiring" education?
[JohnMartin] Don't know - can we throw out tenure?
[JohnMartin] Or are you speaking of hiring in the form of student widgets?
[Art_Gelwicks] Better jobs or better people...which is more important?
[Art_Gelwicks] Teaching students for the new white collar factory labor.
[JohnMartin] I would hope better people would create better jobs but that may just be me
[erin] that's why we have liberal arts schools and vocational schools. because nobody can agree.
[JeffLebow] Just another reminder... if anyone else would like to join in, you can use your phone (or cell phone) to call
[JeffLebow] 1-402-756-9000, access code 537267#
[Art_Gelwicks] It's easier to be open when you don't know who will "hear" you.
[erin] art: yes, but also when you don't have to look the person in the eye.
[erin] and when there's a little more of a filter between your arranging the words and then making them "heard"
[Art_Gelwicks] Exactly. So shouldn't we be teaching the best ways to communicate using this medium since so may of the non-verbal and
[Art_Gelwicks] verbal cues are missing?
[scott] Well said Dave!
[Art_Gelwicks] Not only proper linguistic skills, but communicating in a conversational mode while conveying emotion and thought.
[erin] not necessarily, because that mode of communication doesn't necessarily transfer.
[Jason] Don't you have to make assignments as a teacher? Doesn't that mean that any assignment is "teacher-centered"?
[Art_Gelwicks] Teaching to blog well is no different than teaching to speak well and write well.
[erin] assignments are teacher-centered when they're based on what the teacher thinks is best, with no student input.
[erin] they are student-centered when the teacher considers what the students think.
[Jason] What is the brightline test for that, Erin? At what point do you have enough student input?
[erin] no one's asking for anarchy in the classroom.
[erin] ja when you have listened to anyone who cares to comment.
[erin] when you have a feel for the general opinion.
[erin] you don't have to ask each and every student what they want.
[scott] is teacher-center being used in a pejorative sense here?
[erin] scott: no.
[dave] i think it is
[Jason] Erin: do you have to take in account every opinion?
[erin] no, but you have to get an idea. sometimes, what you would have done anyway will work wonderfully.
[dave] ack. cat attack.
[erin] but sometimes you might find out you're out of touch.
[JohnMartin] I would like to see what we use as a definition for student-centered
[erin] and teachers should not be obsolete.
[Jason] Erin: do you agree that students sometimes don't act out of their "interest" as a student but rather other factors? Like...
[scott] good points Barbara!!
[Jason] wanting to do "easier" work, for example?
[erin] sure, of course that's going to happen. but you as a teacher can tell when that's the case.
[Art_Gelwicks] I agree Barbara...always ask the why.
[Jason] isn't that being "teacher-centered," too, then under this model?
[JohnMartin] It isn't that we are trying to connect students, aren't we trying to connect ideas or facilitate those connections?
[dave] damn cat. back now.
[JohnMartin] The intent of the discourse, whether verbal or written, is to cultivate and refine our cognitive connections
[JohnMartin] But in a classroom, physical or virtual, aren't they connecting already
[erin] yes but on their own terms.
[scott] Does the student or the family have the right to choose not to participate in the online community?
[Art_Gelwicks] I have yet to hear an answer to why connection is such a bad thing?
[JohnMartin] Aren't we leveraging that connected-ness to further the learning for that particular course/lesson/degree?
[erin] because not everyone is interested in connecting on this level.
[JohnMartin] On what level though?
[Art_Gelwicks] But aren't you also worried then about losing those who are?
[erin] no, because if people are interested in connecting they'll do it on their own. on their own terms. using their own tools.
[Jason] Should we not use the Internet of a family doesn't like it?
[Art_Gelwicks] So is there a place for it in the school?
[JohnMartin] So then what is the purpose of a classroom?
[JohnMartin] What about those who disengage from class because they are unable to vie with their more vocal peers?
[scott] Those who refuse to particpate in the online community should be taken to village gates and banished!! ;)
[JohnMartin] Is that dis-connection healthy?
[JohnMartin] Technology is not a panacea, but it is another tool
[Art_Gelwicks] Living near Amish country I truly appreciate that connectivity is a choice...but even the Amish provide their teens an
[erin] it's not up to us to determine what's healthy or not. it's up to us to provide access to tools.
[scott] Dave Winer said that about conference sessions first!
[Art_Gelwicks] opportunity to be exposed to the world and decide on their own.
[erin] yes.
[Jason] If we say that, can't we say that about all technologies? Like...books, too? We shouldn't force students to read certain
[Jason] books?
[JohnMartin] Calculus!!!
[JohnMartin] Hated it
[Art_Gelwicks] What's the general then?
[JohnMartin] then apply to their future learning opportunities?
[Jason] I don't think blogging is specific at is general....
[erin] john: yes! but forcing them to blog, assigning them blogs, is not simply equipping them with tools.
[Art_Gelwicks] Learn how to write in a chronological, conversational tone?
[Jason] Teaching someone how to fingerprint? Specific
[Jason] Learning how to respond to other's ideas?
[Art_Gelwicks] Dusting for them is much more fun.
[erin] blogging uses a very specific skill set.
[Art_Gelwicks] How so?
[Jason] They might not be blogging, but they might be writing for others....
[Jason] Barbara: if we can say that, why can't we say that about SPEAKING or READING or WRITING?
[Art_Gelwicks] Lots of assumptions were made for me in school as to the skills I would long division.
[barbara] Jason?
[Jason] Yes? :)
[Art_Gelwicks] I have to say are definitely making us think about the why for the tech. THANK YOU!!!!
[erin] speaking, reading, and writing are basic skills.
[Jason] Yeah, this is a great discussion!!!!!
[Art_Gelwicks] Should an instructor have a stable of tools at their disposal?
[Jason] never answers what skill set is extra for blogging.....
[erin] like the primary colors. you equip people with basic skills, and show them how to mix them to learn other skills. like secondary
[erin] colors
[Art_Gelwicks] Blogging, wiki, HTML, word, etc. that they can use depending on the student's needs?
[erin] sorry, i've got a couple of different discussions going.
[erin] blogging requires computer/typing skills.
[Jason] So, then, Erin, you would be against a teacher requiring that a paper be typed?
[erin] yes.
[Jason] Or an essay test be readable?
[erin] readble does not mean typed.
[Art_Gelwicks] Yes...but typing and core computer literacy should be considered a basic skill.
[JohnMartin] What if I don't like writing, what is my option then?
[Jason] Art: I couldn't agree more.
[Jason] Or if I ...prefer.... speaking out loud?
[Art_Gelwicks] A well rounded individual should be able to communicate effectively in a number of medium.
[dave] agreed
[Jason] least be exposed to a number of medium
[erin] i'm not arguing for anarchy. many options exist between anarchy and fascism.
[Jason] challenged to work inside of a number of medium
[Art_Gelwicks] Many bloggers can't speak worth a darn.
[Art_Gelwicks] (And you should see their handwriting!)
[dave] erin. are you arguing for anarchy?
[JohnMartin] What would be considered basic skills for the 21st century citizen?
[Jason] I guess I wonder, Erin, what your practical world looks like...
[JohnMartin] Awww, Jeff!!!!
[Jason] We talk about choice but we rarely define what that means practically....
[Art_Gelwicks] tYPING wITHOUT thE cAPS lOCK oN sHOULD bE a bASIC sKILL.
[Art_Gelwicks] Suck it up.
[Jason] wHAT dO yOU mEAN?
[Jason] :)
[dave] *whip*
[scott] Thanks Jeff in Ann Arbor
[dave] enough of the caps lock
[Art_Gelwicks] :P
[erin] allowing student input doesn't mean we're going to cut them loose totally.
[Art_Gelwicks] Jeff in Ann Arbor...good job as always!
[Jason] What does it mean, then? What does the practical lesson look like?
[dave] *whip* *whip*
[Art_Gelwicks] You can count that one, Barbara.
[erin] it means considering what student think. not what a teacher thinks they should think.
[Jason] I repeat...that is a nice way to argue in a platitude, but what does the practical lesson look like?
[JohnMartin] They can live with it
[barbara] i am being practical
[JohnMartin] This is good stuff
[erin] that's the point - you can't make a generalization like that.
[dave] yes. this is good.
[erin] i can't say that any one way works for everybody.
[barbara] right
[dave] right
[Jason] How about demonstrating one way? I want to see this practically.
[Art_Gelwicks] These things need to be sponsored by Starbucks.
[scott] This was brilliant, thanks everyone!!
[erin] okay, here you go.
[Jason] sweet :)
[dave] cheers all... have a good rest of your day scott
[erin] a high school english ap teacher requires certain books be studied duringthe course of the semester.
[erin] but also provides a list of other books that may be substituted upon consultation with the teacher.
[Art_Gelwicks] All brainstorm...all the time...24/7
[erin] and allows students to bring books not on the list to the teacher for consideration.
[JohnMartin] Do we get t-shirts for this?
[Jason] So, no book is required? Just books?
[Art_Gelwicks] Dave's a big meanie.
[dave] tshirts are in your email account
[JeffLebow] We gotta get Tshirts
[JohnMartin] Oh yeah, forgot that
[dave] yes. i am.
[JohnMartin] Where's the logo?
[Art_Gelwicks] Wasn't that the language with the turtle?
[erin] i said at the beginning: certain books are required.
[JohnMartin] Remember that technology is the means not the end
[JeffLebow] And the 24/7 brainstorm channel may not be so far away.... all we need are lots of webcast literate hosts
[Art_Gelwicks] But if they use a paper book or an e-text it doesn't matter, right?
[JohnMartin] Sometimes even I forget that
[Jason] Well, based on your argument, that would be wrong. Any mandatory requirement is "teacher-centered"
[erin] no, the lack of respecting student input is teacher centered.
[Jason] It's Saturday night? :)
[Art_Gelwicks] Don't forget the chat room crew!
[scott] Sunday afternoon ;)
[Jason] But, based on what you say are arguing that I wouldn't be respecting student opinion if I choose a book
[JohnMartin] booyahh
[Jeff_from_Ann_Arbor] Sorry scott I need to remember all my audience.
[JohnMartin] Deep breaths barbara
[JohnMartin] TMI
[scott] Great sign-off Jeff
[Jason] If a student doesn't like a book that I assign, shouldn't that mean choice, under your argument?
[Jeff_from_Ann_Arbor] Good night all it's been something special.
[erin] no, you don't have to allow all choice or no choice.
[Art_Gelwicks] :D
[JohnMartin] Night Jeff
[Jeff_from_Ann_Arbor] Thanks Scott, I look forward to speaking live again some day.
Jeff_from_Ann_Arbor has left the chat.
[Jason] What is the bright line for that? At what point are you paying "enough" attention to student opinion on their learning?
[Jason] (BTW, I am playing devil's advocate here...I give a lot of choice with my students, maybe not as much as Erin would argue is
[Jason] good, but...)
[erin] bleh, my headset's not working. can i call the number still?
[JeffLebow] sure
[Jason] whoa!
[JohnMartin] There she is
[Art_Gelwicks] No good on the skype. Dave's gonna get yanked through the phone.
[JohnMartin] Way to go Erin
[Jason] Hi Erin! :)
[scott] Barbara keeps gettin getting interupted. That's not cricket. ;(
[dave] you're right scott
[dave] my bad
[Jason] I require that every "paper" be typed....not daily assignment like things....
[JohnMartin] PPV - King of the ETT Ring
[JohnMartin] How is this different for K-12 than for higher ed?
[Jason] but, part of the point is that we are TEACHING the interaction with the technology
[JohnMartin] But the student is usually frustrated because they can't use these technologies
[JohnMartin] So many of our students live this stuff
[JohnMartin] Maybe not Blackboard/WebCT but the tools for communicating
[barbara] not all john
[barbara] not all
[Jason] then it is even more important that we expose students to it
[JohnMartin] True not all students but more and more every day
[barbara] aaargh! who says?
[JohnMartin] My experience with the students I encounter at PSU and those that I worked with during my time in K-12
[Jason] i do. :) sorry but i am a professional educator and these are technologies that i use along with speaking, and listening and
[timothy_mckean] Barbara, I tihnk that John may be reffering to yournger students...
[Jason] writing and reading and small group and large group communication and.....
[JohnMartin] No it's not scientific but if it is occuring in rural NH - it's likely to be occuring elsewhere
[JohnMartin] I have students who come to me frustrated with the fact that their professors won't accept electronic submissions,
[Jason] Oh, and so does the State of Montana. :) I have technology standards that I am expected to integrate in my class, along with
[Jason] my social studies content.
[JohnMartin] There are those as well
[JohnMartin] Why is teaching separate from communicating?
[JohnMartin] We're not talking a dating service here, we're talking about discourse
[Jason] snowing here too:
[Jason] :)
[JohnMartin] I want snow!
[JohnMartin] By board is lonely
[Jason] i want it to go away :)
[JohnMartin] Send it to me!!!
scott has left the chat.
[Jason] okay, my wife is starting to make the sad eyes at me...i'm going to take off. GREAT discussion tonight folks...thank you for
[Jason] the intelligent debate
[JohnMartin] 4 8 15 16 23 42
[Jason] hee hee
[Art_Gelwicks] Thanks a bunch Jason!
[Jason] adios!
[JohnMartin] Mine went to bed in disgust
guest-0478 has joined the chat.
[dave] i love that guest guy
[Art_Gelwicks] Mine's been alseep for 2 hours. Wrote me off a while ago.
[JohnMartin] She's thinks I'm having an online affair ;)
Jason has left the chat.
[guest-0478] how do you message directly to someone in the chatte roome?
[dave] you are john
[dave] carefully
[JohnMartin] use /msg username
[JohnMartin] But send a non-flame test first!!!
[dave] barbara are you accusing us of negligence?
[barbara] just you
[barbara] :)
[dave] lovely to chat with you as always barbara... too many people who think agreeing with people is some kind of virtue
[JohnMartin] group think?
[JohnMartin] Me too barbara
[barbara] and you aren't negligent
[timothy_mckean] constant assessment isa HUGE part of teaching.
[JohnMartin] So Barbara, do you have a blog?
[JohnMartin] Just wondering if you post on these thoughts
[timothy_mckean] Barbara give me an interesting idea.. is there a difference between teaching our students and teach our coleagues...
[timothy_mckean] maybe somthing for another show?
[JohnMartin] Should there be a difference?
[timothy_mckean] I think so..
[timothy_mckean] How do you introduce or persuade other teachers to look at technologies...
[guest-0478] Who is the guy talking (who talked to the superintendant recently)?
[timothy_mckean] with kids you can use the tech to teach core content...
[JohnMartin] The same way we persuade our students, we model!
[dave] twas art gelwicks
[timothy_mckean] I think it's great when faculty get excited about somthing personally first.. tn hethey begin to find...
[timothy_mckean] appliactions in the classroom.
[JohnMartin] I agree, but where do they first encounter something to get excited about
[timothy_mckean] from us?
[JohnMartin] As an tech, I see my job as providing resources that they can choose to employ
[JohnMartin] I try not to prescribe unless asked
[timothy_mckean] I guess that's the question... do we have a roale cuheerncisng othto er ten ciniflnsider tech
[JohnMartin] Assuming they aren't trying to do what Barbara just suggested, then I might save them some pain
[timothy_mckean] that was messy... sorry
[JohnMartin] No worries
[timothy_mckean] I can't even tell what I wrote
[JohnMartin] Sounds like my kids
[JohnMartin] NOPE
[JohnMartin] Tell her to read your blog
[JohnMartin] Yup
[JohnMartin] I haven't named names yet Dave ;)
[dave] :)
[JohnMartin] It was nice knowing you DAve
[dave] indeed
[JohnMartin] I gotta go teach tomorrow
[dave] cheers
[JohnMartin] Sorry I couldn't contribute more, my mic for my cell seems to have died
[JohnMartin] New mic virus?
[JohnMartin] I do worry sometimes that we exclude
[JohnMartin] Me too, good luck tomorrow - my class will be listening to the live cast tomorrow
