19:25:18 JenW -> Lisa — why did you NOT go to the NE meetup??

19:26:01 JenW -> it is going on RIGHT NOW Colleen went, KarenJan, BethK
19:26:03 JenW -> yep
19:26:06 sharonp -> I agree with dave, in fact I thought the research (that study from UVermont ) bore that out – we are onlyy becoming AWARE of the violence
19:26:11 Maureen/bcdtech -> it’s in Mass
19:26:14 Durff-armed with laser pointer -> oh too far away
19:26:29 sharonp -> it was our very first showç
19:26:30 Eric -> typing is going out…
19:26:32 Durff-armed with laser pointer -> i’m south of mason-dixon line
19:26:40 matt montagne -> my only thing in keyboarding is it is taught to students that are way too little and young
19:26:50 Maureen/bcdtech -> wanted to go- but it’s more than 3 hours each way- on a school nite
19:26:58 JenM -> @sharonp … it was a big discussion, right?
19:27:00 Durff-armed with laser pointer -> they have to do it that way to begin
19:27:11 Durff-armed with laser pointer -> once they get it though…
19:27:14 JoseRodriguez -> I agree
19:27:29 Eric -> Typing is not a required skill.
19:27:33 Durff-armed with laser pointer -> essential for school but not society
19:27:38 JohnS -> Safer Children in a Digital World: http://www.dfes.gov.uk/byronreview/ AND Internet Safety Podcast: http://www.internetsafetypodcast.com/
19:27:40 Eric -> I finger type with iphone.
19:27:42 Durff-armed with laser pointer -> so you both are correct
19:27:45 matt montagne -> right durff
19:27:56 JoseRodriguez -> @eric it is required to communicate in a Web 2.0 environment
19:27:56 harold -> I don’t know it makes communicating via keyboard, much easier
19:28:02 JenW -> I still appreciate GREATLY someone who can type — rather than standing there waiting while someone hunts and pecks. Just a pet peeve
19:28:11 Durff-armed with laser pointer -> what is jose?
19:28:20 harold -> Learned it back in 1971 and made a career out of it.
19:28:20 sharonp -> @JenM – yes it was a big discussion
19:28:27 JoseRodriguez -> typing ability
19:28:36 JenW -> we have secretaries at our school that take FOREVER to type — not sure that is effecient
19:28:44 Durff-armed with laser pointer -> typing is NOT required to use any tool
19:28:46 JenW -> but then I didn’t hire them
19:28:59 Durff-armed with laser pointer -> can you say audio?
19:29:02 Eric -> I agree, but it’s not the same typing as when we were younger.
19:29:03 harold -> but it does help use it more efficiently
19:29:11 JoseRodriguez -> I take the argument of cursive is not required by typing IS
19:29:20 JenW -> I went to SUMMER SCHOOL — 3 hours of typinng every day for 6 weeks — it kinda stuck with me
19:29:23 Durff-armed with laser pointer -> voice recognition software?
19:29:23 harold -> speech to text is still tooooo primitive
19:29:30 dave -> http://www.flickr.com/photos/tania_k/2411136931/
19:29:38 Maureen/bcdtech -> it makes it tough to teach how to use word when some kids type 40 wpm and some type 8 wpm
19:29:45 sharonp -> apparently Dragon version 9 is really awesome
19:29:46 JenW -> I also learned to make cool typing pictures using the X key 🙂
19:30:04 Durff-armed with laser pointer -> why do they have to learn word without voice recognition?
19:30:12 Eric -> give the kids a cell phone, and they can type a lot faster.
19:30:13 harold -> @sharonp – how much for Dragon?
19:30:16 JenW -> WAIT — Flickr is owned by Microsoft — in the last hour???
19:30:21 JoseRodriguez -> I have my students blogging. And students that have home role key notion can become more efficient bloggers.
19:30:28 PeggyG -> I love that the Flickr videos can appear in your media stream at the top of Flock-helps you find vids easily by favorite people 🙂
19:30:38 JenM -> Silly Links: http://www.leighbureau.com/speaker.asp?id=389 … and … http://darmano.typepad.com/logic_emotion/2008/04/the-top-10-made.html
19:30:42 Maureen/bcdtech -> audio keeps going out again..ugh!

19:38:30 Durff-armed with laser pointer -> we are planning?
19:38:37 matt montagne -> mjmonty
19:38:41 matt montagne -> that is my skype
19:38:54 Durff-armed with laser pointer -> i’m cooking – hi JenW
19:39:17 PeggyG -> I want to know Jen
19:39:19 sharonp -> I just have not had the time to put into learning Diigo
19:39:28 sharonp -> I have lots of friends!
19:39:40 sharonp -> but no real understanding of how to use it effectively
19:39:59 sharonp -> has Common Craft made a video tutorial yet on Diigo?
19:40:09 JohnS -> doubt it.
19:40:13 dave -> you can turn much of the noise off in the settings
19:40:22 JenM -> projectsbyjen.ning.com
19:40:23 dave -> but i still haven’t warmed up to it
19:40:33 PeggyG -> There are some great tutorial vids on YouTube-short & focused
19:40:49 matt montagne -> not a big diigo fan
19:41:01 matt montagne -> not even going to bother sharing with teachers
19:41:17 matt montagne -> teachers would run me out of town if I showed them diigo after showing them delicious
19:41:20 PeggyG -> I’ve learned a lot more about Diigo over the past couple of weeks and am liking some of the features especially for professional development
19:41:50 PeggyG -> everything I post to Diigo goes directly to del.icio.us and I use both
19:41:53 sharonp -> Jeff, you are so right about that and being a newbie
19:41:59 matt montagne -> Hey Jeff and Co!
19:42:34 sroseman -> diigo has a myspace feel
19:42:37 JenM -> @peggyG … I do the same … cross post … but all our ETW buddies still seem to love del.icio.us …
19:43:04 PeggyG -> I think a lot of it is what we’re familiar and comfortable with
19:43:35 PeggyG -> I am finding some great resources through some of the Diigo groups-like edustreams where you can view streams you may have missed.
19:44:17 maherv -> I haven’t had time to try Diigo
19:44:17 cathy e -> Diigo’s Master Teacher Account and student accounts is what I’m waiting for
19:44:26 sroseman -> I will investigate diigo further..may have its own niche

19:56:30 JenW -> I think
19:56:36 matt montagne -> @peggy…sharon has it correct…
19:56:38 Durff-armed with laser pointer -> followed by It’s Elementary
19:56:39 JenW -> and then WOW2 will wrap it all up
19:56:52 PeggyG -> I must have been hit by the laser pointer–a startup group is wrapping it up?
19:56:55 Durff-armed with laser pointer -> sounds like a plan to me
19:56:56 JenW -> LOL
19:57:00 JenW -> YEP — precisely
19:57:01 matt montagne -> it is going to be one big pile of audio!
