19:05:46 Wendy -> Hi all. I had to step away to grab some headphones.

19:07:37 courosa -> When the first word from an African child is "Google" we should be disturbed, not please. let’s be critical, is this progress? tech colonialism? What is progress?
19:07:48 courosa -> Greed!
19:08:23 jepcke -> Where are their links to be found? "In our links section…"
19:08:31 Gary -> Chicago economics?
19:08:33 fiona_banjer -> It’s like computers being put into classrooms with teachers who don’t understand what they can do.
19:08:36 dave -> http://del.icio.us/edtechtalk/20080106
19:08:45 jepcke -> Thnx Dave

19:08:54 datruss -> DaveT
19:09:12 Durff -> welcome back
19:09:37 MizMercer -> Isn’t this the crux of the issue with OLPC? It’s got some WONDERFUL design elements, but the implementation plan sucks.
19:09:52 Durff -> hi thespian
19:10:03 datruss -> When does it start? Sound? (forgive the newbie)
19:10:05 MizMercer -> Would be GREAT!
19:10:12 Gary -> But "shock therapy" econimics demands that it be commercialized.
19:10:15 Durff -> i would have to agree with dave – they do have a responsibility
19:10:20 Cathy E -> audio is bumpy, is it just me?
19:10:23 JenM -> Scoble Scuffle: http://www.news.com/8301-13577_3-9839474-36.html?tag=nefd.top

19:13:12 sharonp -> John was nice – he "needed" to help me out with something
19:13:14 Durff -> hi alice
19:13:21 alicebarr -> hi durff
19:13:26 sharonp -> and that is why he set up a FB account
19:13:28 alicebarr -> hi tired skiier
19:13:37 jeff -> http://www.dataportability.org/
19:13:40 MizMercer -> Hi Lisa
19:13:44 Sarah S -> Hi there Alice
19:13:45 Durff -> keep the snow up there
19:13:51 Durff -> hi alice
19:13:51 cheryloakes-tired skier -> Hi Alice, happy traveler alicebarr
19:13:53 alicebarr -> Hi Sarah!
19:13:55 MizMercer -> Oh oh, need another color
19:13:59 alexr -> Can’t listen live and be a good Dad. Will listen to the podcast. Take care all.
19:14:11 jomcleay -> Hello Alice Barr
19:14:12 alicebarr -> Hi durff
19:14:17 alicebarr -> Hi Jo
19:14:32 alicebarr -> Everyone is here! 😀
19:14:35 MizMercer -> Oops, sorry for taking your hellos Alice Barr
19:14:41 Durff -> hi math teacher
19:14:46 dave -> http://davecormier.com/edblog/2007/12/30/the-difference-between-free-and-free-in-education/
19:14:51 sharonp -> cool….all of us creating content… what happens when something goes belly up?
19:14:56 courosa -> Ning’s open source code is available, may be vulnerable, but also, you could technically host it yourself.
19:15:12 alicebarr -> Oops Sorry I took yours too MizMercer!
19:15:20 JohnS -> Right, Alec. It’s free beer vs free speech
19:15:20 Durff -> no body besides them?
19:15:27 courosa -> Question: What are we worried about? What is the worst case scenario?
19:15:37 mjmonty -> nobody knows how safe ANYTHING is…
19:15:50 MizMercer -> NEXT…
19:15:55 sharonp -> thanks Alec…. !
19:15:56 Durff -> crossing the street isn’t safe
19:15:58 courosa -> the code is available … Ning is just hosted, you can actually download the source … yes, it is open source.
19:16:03 mjmonty -> that is a silly statement to me
19:16:08 jeff -> http://www.thethinkingstick.com/?p=610 The Thinking Stick » ‘08 The ‘Live Web’
19:16:29 JenW -> I just don’t like that NING would charge me $20 a month to take the ads off
19:16:35 JenW -> but I am enjoying our conversations on the NING
19:16:50 jomcleay -> Jeff that is the best thing for me
19:17:01 dave -> Alec… can you give me a link to opensource ning?
19:17:03 dave -> can’t find
19:17:07 jomcleay -> that it is live I mean
19:17:27 sharonp -> It is unfortunately another argument against using web environments for education – as if the IT directors I talk to don’t have enough reasons not to use them!
19:17:45 MizMercer -> I have an interview with Brian Crosby that I’m still trying to pull down.
19:17:52 MizMercer -> from USTREAM
19:17:57 fiona_banjer -> We don’t have privacy issues, it’s blocked anyway LOL
19:17:58 Cathy E -> And why do all those people on UStream leave their stream running and they are gone and the room is dark
19:18:04 sharonp -> live videostreaming of students scares me
19:18:37 alicebarr -> But how else will students learn to ask appropriate questions?
19:18:48 alicebarr -> How about setting the parameters first?
19:18:59 sharonp -> live videostreaming of students that is wide open on the net – BIG liability issues
19:19:20 Durff -> ladies and gentlemen, joyce valenza has entered the room!
19:19:24 joycevalenza -> we’ve had author visits where the authors said controversial things.
19:19:29 joycevalenza -> shucks
19:19:31 sharonp -> having open student content posted online is one thing – livestreaming is another
19:19:45 joycevalenza -> Discussion after mitigated the problems
19:19:52 joycevalenza -> there is never a guarantee
19:19:53 mjmonty -> are there liability issues of putting kids photos along with first and last names in local paper??
19:20:10 jepcke -> isn’t live streaming a part of the web permissions? Permission to be allowed to photgraph, videotape kids, etc
19:20:18 sharonp -> LOL
19:20:21 jeff -> http://davecormier.com/
19:20:23 mjmonty -> I would submit that there are more risks via local paper publication
19:20:26 sharonp -> you rotter….
19:20:27 Durff -> hi techsavvy
19:20:35 TechSavvy -> Hi
19:20:38 joycevalenza -> wow!
19:20:39 datruss -> wiki’s are the same issue because of the ‘History’
19:20:41 jepcke -> our district considers that to be all the same
19:21:03 Gary -> No one seems to worry about follow-up during radio talk-shows – why the need on the web?
19:21:14 courosa -> Will find link Dave, having trouble with /live tonight
19:21:23 jomcleay -> Hi Joyce
19:21:23 sharonp -> @mjmonty – I believe permissions are needed for print publications – yes
19:21:31 Durff -> fear of the unknown Gary
19:21:54 Durff -> hi joyce
19:22:01 jeff -> what kind of troubles with /live?
19:22:02 fiona_banjer -> What time does this chat finish?
19:22:13 MizMercer -> top of the hour
19:22:14 joyce seitzinger -> hi durff
19:22:21 fiona_banjer -> Thanks.
19:22:22 Gary -> But those that use these features "know"
19:22:22 Durff -> the show is 7-8
19:22:24 JohnS -> Apologies for plugging myself: http://staff.bbhcsd.org/schinkerj/archives/2007/12/30/professional-growth/
19:22:32 joyce seitzinger -> i’ve missed most of the session : (
19:22:36 jomcleay -> or 11 to 12
19:22:49 fiona_banjer -> 10 to 11 in Brisbane LOL
19:22:58 Durff -> depending on how you look at it
19:23:04 jomcleay -> 😀
19:23:05 jepcke -> rather than ignoring it, I would rather use it as an opportunity to teach the kids what is appropriate
19:23:06 joyce seitzinger -> hi mrs banjer!
19:23:20 sharonp -> I agree JOhn – presented this topic at Illinois Online Conf last year
19:23:28 sharonp -> pre-twitter!
19:23:34 joycevalenza -> problem is I can’t help them develop the kind of amazing network I have before they lose interest
19:23:38 fiona_banjer -> Hi !! How are your assignments going??
19:23:49 Durff -> speak for yourself john
19:23:56 JohnS -> 🙂
19:23:58 joycevalenza -> it’s not the tech, but maybe who to include/follow
19:24:04 courosa -> OK … on Ning, if you are a network creator (which I am), when you go to manage, you will see a link to "request access to your network’s code" … then they say they will send you the code within 48 hours. I would send a screenshot but can’t paste anything into this field from a Mac.
19:24:05 joycevalenza -> join
19:24:31 MizMercer -> John S.: California had individual plans for teacher prof dev….
19:24:46 MizMercer -> They’ve elimnated PD requirement for renewal
19:24:49 fiona_banjer -> Hi nzchrissy!
19:24:52 sharonp -> It is about developing relationships …. I have observed that those who don’t do well developing a f2f professional/social relationship – don’t do well with online networking
19:24:53 CdnMathTeacher -> joycevalenza – I followed people who presented at a unconference and then followed the people they followed.
19:25:02 Durff -> hi murcha
19:25:05 jomcleay -> Hi nzchrissy
19:25:07 Durff -> hi chrissy
19:25:08 joycevalenza -> cool!
19:25:11 nzchrissy -> Hello everyone
19:25:14 CdnMathTeacher -> I’ve only been on Twitter for about 2 months and have learned so much
19:25:22 MizMercer -> Because with saleary structure, you’re going to do professional development on your own
19:25:29 cheryloakes-tired skier -> 31 folks here chatting on a Sun. evening/Mon morning:-)
19:25:31 MizMercer -> JOHN: They have eliminated those plans
19:25:34 murcha -> hello I am Anne (murcha) from Australia and this is my first time on so I will sit back and "listen"!!

19:25:44 MizMercer -> now NO PD is needed for renewal.
19:25:45 fiona_banjer -> Hello Anne
19:25:47 joyce seitzinger -> @fionabanjer uhm, i’m procrastanating like listening to ed tech talk

19:27:17 ds -> we need to see some video of next year!
19:27:18 sharonp -> have been thinking a lot of how to get more educators on board…. one study I recently heard about discusses how teacher beliefs are the key factors in change
19:27:20 MizMercer -> I’m trying to explain this to ISET about redoing professional development.
19:27:21 jomcleay -> @cheryl congratulations

19:34:00 sharonp -> It’s a little tricky…. it is a pdf link from Thunderbird

19:35:33 Durff -> bye cheryl
19:35:41 courosa -> check out tangler.com … it’s very new, but goes from discussion forum to chat … not sure if it is quite appropriate, but quite neat.
19:35:56 jeff -> http://www.suptfelix.blogspot.com/ Jeff Felix ‘s Dissertation
19:35:58 courosa -> so moves from synchronous to asynchronous

19:37:31 MizMercer -> Scott McLeod is trying to get readers for good edubloggers with technorati under 100
19:37:31 sharonp -> that is going to be aninteresting read
19:38:05 dave -> http://unltdworld.com/
19:38:15 fiona_banjer -> I have posted my assignments for MEd in blog. Then thought may not be acceptable practice. ANy thoughts? I find that issues I raise are commented on later – e.g. communication links being essential to move teachers forward with IT.
19:39:03 lparisi -> Hello all
19:39:12 sharonp -> @fiona – have you considered using a wiki for that? Or ning, perhaps? It will help organize the material a bit more
19:39:22 JohnS -> fiona: I would probably be doing that too if I were in grad school right now
19:39:35 nzchrissy -> Hey Lisa
19:39:37 MizMercer -> Hi Lisa

19:40:07 joyce seitzinger -> @fiona think it only makes sense these days
19:40:11 guest256 -> Fiona – What’s your goal in posting those assignments? Getting feedback on the assignment or getting help for them or what?
19:40:23 sharonp -> Alec has some great speakers lined up ….
19:40:28 alicebarr -> @lparisi Hi Lisa if you mean me

19:43:08 MizMercer -> Do you EVER run out of nasty things to do?
19:43:21 Durff -> dave never does
19:43:35 fiona_banjer -> Love the bus concept. My husband drives school buses as part of his job. I’ve observed a very marked difference in behaviour from classroom to bus line!
19:44:12 lparisi -> hi Karen
19:44:14 Gary -> No teacher would ever become a bus driver …..
19:44:17 ehelfant -> thanks, great as always but the Hawaii sun is beckoning

19:57:29 JohnS -> but we can’t see it unless your kid is our friend, right Sharon?
19:57:31 betchaboy -> maybe politicians and school administrators should have to have the same level of internet filtering as school do.

19:58:50 joyce seitzinger -> @betchaby and IT Administrators should limit themselves as well!
19:58:53 Gary -> Your Google calendar has two effects – allows you to know when something happens but makes you feel guilty if you miss.
19:58:58 JohnS -> If they don’t live in the same world as the students and teachers, they don’t understand the problems.
