    cam but I’m
    listening in
  • ASTM Student Members  I only have earphones πŸ™‚
  • Kate Robbins  She broke up – didn’t hear the
    question
  • Kate Robbins  but I friended in google circle –
    shall I go
    there to
    join ?
  • pgeorge  Hi all-just eavesdropping on your
    wonderful event!

    on the ETT calendar. Great to see you all

    minutes

  • Kate Robbins  yes;)
  • Kate Robbins  part of the evomlit

  • pgeorge  go Mac!!
  • ASTM Student Members  I LUV Screencast-o-matic
  • pgeorge  that streaming banner across the bottom
    covers about
    half
    of your faces πŸ™
  • pgeorge  MOOC Cast superstar–Lisa Lane πŸ™‚ Nice
    title!
  • ASTM Student Members  The audio is great, but the
    video is
    choppy
  • Lisa M Lane  I think the audio depends on your
    connection and
    the
    connections of the individuals on cam
  • ASTM Student Members  I hear a little echo but
    this is
    wonderful
    considering!
  • pgeorge  both audio and video are coming through
    great for me
    but I
    have a direct ethernet connection with great bandwidth
  • pgeorge  wow! one talk/interview with Dan PInk
    about all 4 of
    his
    books!!
  • pgeorge 
    http://www.edtechcrew.net/2011/08/24/ed-tech-crew-171/
  • pgeorge  thanks for tweeting that link Vance
  • pgeorge  it’s really interesting to watch Jeff’s
    face change
    with
    each of the words he was using to describe the course–frowns with the
    control words and smiles/big eyes with the open terms πŸ™‚
  • gsiemens  those are the best courses, Lisa πŸ™‚
  • pgeorge  HI George πŸ™‚
  • Lisa M Lane  http://pedagogyfirst.org/wppf
  • pgeorge  thanks! always feel like I’m missing
    something when
    there
    are 2 chat rooms (I am…)
  • Vance  ok, found it, Hi Peggy
  • pgeorge  HI Vance πŸ™‚
  • pgeorge  @Vance-did you see my earlier message
    about
    Elluminate
    Publish?
  • ASTM Student Members  Is this BuddyPress?
  • ASTM Student Members  WPTavern is a great forum
    for BuddyPress
  • pgeorge  I really like the title and sub-title for
    your site!
    πŸ™‚
  • Vance  can anyone reach this blog post or is it
    truly down
    http://joedale.typepad.com/integrating_ict_into_the_/2011/03/easy-classroom-blogging-with-posterous.html
  • pgeorge  I had no problem reaching that post Vance
  • Vance  I’ll use my vpn then
  • pgeorge  Easy classroom blogging with Posterous??
  • pgeorge  came through fine
  • Kate Robbins  no problem with that link, Vance,
    but it did
    freeze
    my screen
  • Kate Robbins  This sounds like Vance’s strucutre
    except
    Mentors.
  • pgeorge  must just be a bit bandwidth intensive
    with this
    livestream/hangout running simultaneously
  • Kate Robbins  It’s interesting so many feel so
    uncomfortable
    not
    via an LMS
  • pgeorge  I love that model–12 weeks/12 weeks
  • pgeorge  that is the classic struggle for
    university
    folks–well
    almost everyone! structured learning vs open learning. Still looking
    for the prof to structure their learning
  • Kate Robbins  That’s the US School System –
    administration has
    tp
    have the oversight
  • pgeorge  ummmm–oversight = control πŸ™‚
  • Kate Robbins  or saving their jobs:)
  • Lisa M Lane  oddly, if your class is open, they
    can oversight
    all
    they want
  • Lisa M Lane  but they want the stats maybe
  • pgeorge  probably right Lisa–stats…
  • pgeorge  I think Posterous provides a fantastic
    tool for this
  • Kate Robbins  Which is very difficult for the
    traditional
    learners,
    who grew up with structure
  • pgeorge  exactly Kate!
  • pgeorge  so true–Google has so many tools
    integrated for the
    entire experience
  • Kate Robbins  important for grants and funding
  • Kate Robbins  Where are you, Jeff?
  • Vanessa  but welcome to those of us who grew up
    resisting the
    structure
  • Kate Robbins  Is Arnold included? LOL
  • Vance  hi vanessa
  • Vanessa  hello all –
  • Vanessa  no sound just text
  • morteza barin  hello everybody
  • Lisa M Lane  you can join us in Google + hangout
    if you are
    linked
    to Jeff Lebow
  • Lisa M Lane  Vanessa, are you here via
    https://edtechtalk.net/livestreamjeff?
  • Vanessa  I’m finding higher ed faculty is as
    resistant to
    openness
    as admin: they characterize open learning as content without learning
    (eg no active ‘teaching’)
  • Vance  what about active learning?
  • Vanessa  I got Lisa’s FB msg and am her via that
    link
  • Lisa M Lane  ooooh, I must remember that – OER
    might be
    content
    without teaching
  • Vanessa  Some find active learning threatening
  • Lisa M Lane  Vanessa, find Jeff LeBow through G+
  • pgeorge  hard to keep track of all of the MOOCs πŸ™‚
  • Vanessa  I replied by saying take one of these
    before passing
    judgement
  • Jeff Lebow: would you like to join Vanessa?
  • Kate Robbins  yes – mentorship finds itself
  • Kate Robbins  just not appointed
  • Vanessa  Yes, George it is… comforting that even
    a moocuru
    would
    find it so
  • Vanessa  I agree Kate – many is the time I have
    gone mentor
    hunting
  • pgeorge  community means you have to take some
    personal
    responsibility for contributing to the community–not just completing
    assignments
  • Vanessa  because what was offered did not suit
  • Jeff Lebow: hangout invite sent Vanessa
  • ralenefriend  Hello all
  • pgeorge  hi ralenefriend πŸ™‚ welcome
  • Lisa M Lane  Hi Ralene!
  • Vanessa  cooperative also means (to some)
    relinquishing control
  • Vanessa  hi Ralene
  • Lisa M Lane  or switching to a different kind of
    control
  • Vance  that’s a really good point, Kate, I’ll
    certainly
    consider
    formalizing the mentorship relationship in future courses
  • Kate Robbins  It might save your time, Vance!
  • Kate Robbins  guess it relplaces the old model of
    team /
    partner
    work
  • pgeorge  the concept of aggregating using tags is
    really
    important–not just tracking/monitoring but aggregating
  • pgeorge  hahaha–grasshoppers for dummies!
  • Vanessa  Having done both, I think voluntary (and
    mutual)
    mentoring
    works better than old team / partner model w/ those imposed top down
  • pgeorge  scoop.it can handle individual blog posts
    but haven’t
    tried a page with rss feeds
  • Kate Robbins  yes @Vanessa I agree
  • pgeorge  I agree @Vanessa–and don’t need to have
    just one
    mentor–community of mentors πŸ™‚
  • Kate Robbins  Hi, by the way:)
  • Lisa M Lane  As a mentor and a mentee, I felt more
    comfortable
    having the connection defined, even loosely.
  • Vanessa  @George – Tags – took me a long time to
    really get
    the
    habit but they have made such a difference. I have Vance and EVO to
    thank
  • ASTM Student Members  Love Scoop.it too
  • pgeorge  Bill Zimmerman πŸ™‚ To help educators,
    MakeBeliefsComix.com, thefree online comic strip generator, has
    launched a Daily Comix Diary Pageoffering many ideas at http://www.makebeliefscomix.com/Daily-Comix-Diary/
  • Vanessa  @Lisa – I agree, maybe it’s something we
    need to work
    on… loose enough to be flexible but clear enough to be useful
  • Vance  here”s the list of epcop mooc recordings
    and upcoming
    sessions, here
    http://learning2gether.pbworks.com/w/page/32206114/volunteersneeded
  • pgeorge  thanks for the link Vance–have it
    bookmarked from
    your
    earlier email to webheads–very helpful!
  • Vance  coach Carol’s Make Belief change eportfolio
    cover
    http://www.makebeliefscomix.com/Comix/?comix_id=33421980C521942
  • pgeorge  interesting distinction between
    collaboration and
    cooperation–not sure I agree
  • Kate Robbins  If  you’re sharing ideas,
    that’s
    collaborating, no?
  • pgeorge  good explanation Lisa πŸ™‚ that makes sense
  • gjoyce  glenis joyce I’m in eportfolio mooc, great
    scaffolding,
    great support from Challenge Mentors. http://epcopmooc.ning.com/
  • ASTM Student Members  Google + question – Jeff how
    come you
    don’t
    appear at the top, even when you’re speaking
  • ASTM Student Members  now I’m hungry…
  • ASTM Student Members  Jeff, now you’re on top πŸ™‚
  • Kate Robbins  Vance re: Dan Pink – here is the
    link to the TED
    Talk
    re: motivation http://www.ted.com/talks/dan_pink_on_motivation.html
  • Kate Robbins  Dan Pink on the surprising science
    of motivation
  • pgeorge  is it that the “streamer” doesn’t pop up
    to the top
    because of the audio source?
  • Vanessa  @G –  focused vs
    diffused  ~
    collaboration requires cooperation..
  • Vance  yes and this is the link to the interview I
    mentioned
    earlier http://www.edtechcrew.net/2011/08/24/ed-tech-crew-171/
  • Kate Robbins  ok – thanks
  • Vance  he says the intrinsic drivers are the ones
    we should be
    attending to
  • pgeorge  some people don’t trust their intrinsic
    drivers–think
    they don’t know enough and want the guidance fromthe experts
  • Michael  I really apprecated folks recommendations
    during the
    eduMOOC regarding Canvas
  • Kate Robbins  drove me crazy in grad school -some
    prof use 1
    chapter
  • pgeorge  and it’s usually a textbook written by
    that faculty
    member
    πŸ™
  • Vanessa  intrinsic / extrinsic – big difference in
    language
    learing
    where a lot has been written about it
  • pgeorge  great first session!!! thank you all for
    your sharing
    and
    transparency! πŸ™‚
  • Vanessa  G+ is still trying to load me to hangout
  • pgeorge  global sweetspot! love it! I’m on Pacific
    time at
    7:00am
    was definitely doable
  • pgeorge  80 viewers on Livestream πŸ™‚ awesome!
  • Vanessa  I’ll listen to the audio later
  • ASTM Student Members  I will spread the word on
    Twitter –
    already
    sent out a few tweets
  • Vanessa  but glad to be here any way I can – great
    cconversation,
    sifting of opinions
  • pgeorge  you can try cel.ly as a more private
    twitter option
    for a
    reluctant group
  • ASTM Student Members  I lost sound and video…
  • pgeorge  me too but just came back
  • ASTM Student Members  back now πŸ™‚
  • Michael  Yes
  • pgeorge  no ads during–just at beginning for me
  • ASTM Student Members  Just a static ad under the
    chat box
  • pgeorge  and a little man in the lower right
    corner a few times
  • Kate Robbins  not in google
  • Kate Robbins  when?
  • ASTM Student Members  Also a slider at the top
    announcing
    upcoming
    streams
  • pgeorge  the static ad is a banner created by Jeff
    for
    Livestream
    channel

    though.
