17:16 JenM  http://www.protopage.com/elearning07
17:16 sharonp it made a HUGE
difference in the wiggly-jiggly factor

17:23 AliceMercer Dave did I
miss you talking about Archive project?

17:23 arthus busy building an
open source WordPress package for education…

17:24 AliceMercer I did one at

17:24 JL2 http://www.snapvine.com/

17:24 AliceMercer Miguel G is
doing work on that

17:24 stevem We use an ELGG,
plugged into moodle for portfolios

17:24 sharonp ooooh, that sounds
very cool

17:25 JL2  http://www.jott.com
17:25 arthus I love Jott πŸ™‚

17:25 davecormier where was that
link Alice?

17:25 arthus had computer taken
away… but was still able to tweet πŸ˜›

17:25 JohnSchinker I was
thinking elgg was the way to go, but wasn’t sure if there was something
newer & better

17:25 AliceMercer Oh, I have
REVOLUTIONED my admin with Jott

17:25 arthus did anyone notice
Jott integrated with Twitter?

17:25 arthus very nice…

17:25 JohnSchinker  http://notemesh.com/notemesh.php?a=home
17:25 AliceMercer The NPR on
story corp, then you were going to talk about archive project in PEI

17:25 sharonp ahhh you Americans
whose cell phone service is so cheap

17:26 AliceMercer Arthus, I
heard about it.

17:26 sharonp those kinds of
services would cost me a mint

17:26 AliceMercer Sharon, you
have NO idea how ugly the documentation is with new speical educuation

17:26 davecormier yes… i
couldn’t remember that it was NPR

17:26 sharonp Alice, I shudder
to imagine

17:27 AliceMercer John, anyone
think of using that with conferences?

17:27 davecormier http://www.vmware.com/download/server/

17:27 sharonp my
despair this week – we have a great education plan – based on multiple
literacies…. took a look at the annual prov teachers’ conference – NO
web 2.0 – closest is someone offering to teach how to make webpages on

17:27 SuzieQ what are you using
at school at the moment. Arthus..I wonder if it jives with what you use
out of school

17:28 JohnSchinker I think
they’re trying to keep it to postsecondary, but there’s no reason why
you can’t just do the same thing with a wiki

17:28 AliceMercer I also put in
a link for Jen Stark’s paper sculpture, and Eric Gejarde’s photostream
of origami

17:28 SuzieQ that qustion was
directed at arthus

17:28 SuzieQ question

17:28 arthus Suzie: what do u
mean as in wat i’m using?

17:29 arthus using for….

17:29 AliceMercer Sharon, sounds
like my online class. Scholastic pages for teachers or teacherweb

17:30 JL2 http://www.cogniview.com/convert-pdf-to-excel/post/conversion-central-101-tools-to-convert-video-music-images-pdf-and-more/

17:30 JL2 http://www.trueknowledge.com/

17:30 arthus uh… use Mac OS X

17:30 JenM having some skype
issues … sorry … brb (I hope)

17:30 AliceMercer Hey, why
didn’t Premiere Elements read the Mac .mov file I uploaded? That’s not
an unusual format is it?

17:30 SuzieQ do you use the same
web2.0 apps at school as you are using outside of school

17:30 AliceMercer Sorry,
existential question

17:30 sharonp I looked at
trueknowledge – very interesting

17:30 davecormier sorry Alice…
too long for me to read live… will have to wait πŸ˜›

17:30 JL2  http://googlereader.blogspot.com/2007/11/attack-of…
17:31 arthus @Suzie oh… lol…
we don’t use web 2.0 apps in school at all

17:31 JohnSchinker  http://wiredforbooks.org/index2.htm
17:31 arthus unfortunately we

17:31 AliceMercer Dave, the link
or my link to story corp?

17:31 SuzieQ I thought so,

17:31 AliceMercer How to change
my color?

17:32 arthus why is there
something saying “webcam ustream” over the text?

17:32 arthus over the stream

17:32 davecormier  http://librarianinblack.typepad.com/librarianinbla…
17:33 AliceMercer Dave, Hey I
use that google reader to link list on my blog!

17:33 JL2 it’s the webcam max

17:33 AliceMercer It’s sweet!

17:33 JenM  http://www.boingboing.net/2007/11/05/wfmu-streamin…
… and … http://www.sesamevault.com/mobile?campaign=deck&ad=3

17:33 JL2 haven’t paid for it on
that machine yet

17:33 arthus @JL2 oh… stupid
Windows πŸ˜›

17:33 AliceMercer Arthus, don’t
get me starte on MAC! I’ve had “issues” this week.

17:34 arthus you’ve had issues
with your mac!? WHOAH

17:34 AliceMercer Dave Cormier:
you want to do it another week?

17:34 SuzieQ Mac and
issues..hard to believe

17:34 SuzieQ LOL

17:34 sharonp I object to the
American exclusive coverage of iPhone….

17:34 arthus no longer…

17:35 arthus it’s in Europe

17:35 arthus doncha know? πŸ˜›

17:35 AliceMercer That
proprietary thing is a PITA

17:35 AliceMercer Europe is NOT

17:35 sharonp exclusive from

17:35 JL2  http://www.ustream.tv/channel/where-the-dust-settl…
17:35 sharonp s

17:35 SuzieQ one can hack an
iphone so that it can be used here in Canada

17:35 JenM Yeah!!! NJ!! πŸ™‚

17:35 arthus much better

17:35 sharonp yes, have been
eyeing them on ebay

17:35 arthus my new phone comes
tomorrow πŸ™‚

17:35 sharonp HEY! I watched
that show!

17:35 sharonp I blogged about it

17:36 sharonp I have a question
about online safety ?

17:36 sharonp is it a public or
private school??

17:37 sharonp Should
we have concerns about pedophiles being able to openly view UStream –
please know that I think it is a great idea and followed along…. just
throwing the question out there

17:37 davecormier no.

17:38 davecormier by that
argument we shouldn’t bring kids to the park

17:38 arthus pedophiles need not
use ustream… they can just hang out on street or park

17:38 AliceMercer Sharon, if
they aren’t striping, I think not?

17:38 sharonp I ask because I
have been advocating skype in the classroom… and I get this argument
thrown at me

17:38 davecormier need to type
faster arthus πŸ™‚

17:38 arthus yup… darn u

17:38 davecormier bwhahahaha

17:38 AliceMercer Sharon, the
logic leads to the chador

17:39 davecormier everyone take

17:39 davecormier lessons

17:39 AliceMercer Hey, someone
might see your daughter, and lust after her, so put her in a sack!

17:39 sharonp I was very
impressed with what I saw – on many levels

17:39 sharonp impressed with the
students and their ability to answer questions

17:40 AliceMercer Would you
recommend having a chat moderator?

17:40 sharonp impressed that you
were able to do this with the students

17:40 sharonp my question – did
the fact that the students had an audience make a difference to the
students? in what ways?

17:40 AliceMercer If you had
another adult there as moderator would that help?

17:40 JohnSchinker It’s great to
see people taking chances and pushing at the edges

17:40 AliceMercer Oh, lots of
those on Skype.

17:40 Durff And I thought it was

17:41 davecormier 😐

17:41 sharonp was great

17:41 sharonp nice to have
pioneers out there ahead of me

17:41 JL2 http://justin.tv/

17:42 sharonp trailblazers…. I
raved about it to a whole bunch of prov consultatns later

17:42 AliceMercer Sharon, do you
feel like you have the arguments against it?

17:42 sharonp I feel as though I
need to anticipate the opposition and arguments

17:42 Durff oh the segues

17:42 AliceMercer How’s this
looking? http://voicethread.com/#u16410.b20480.i116623
17:42 AliceMercer Sharon, you

17:42 sharonp so this is why I
throw the questions out here…. to those who are doing it…

17:43 AliceMercer Yeah, you
don’t teach them, they do stupid stuff.

the new social spaces
