19:29:22  JohnS -> -EdTechTalk: Online student-teacher friendships can be tricky: http://www.cnn.com/2008/TECH/08/12/studentsteachers.online/index.html     

19:31:18  sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: I guess I am looking for solid resources for using SB in the classroom – for both my own teachers and teachers in South Africa    

19:31:22  Lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: I had a student today asking to exchange skype ids.  I turned him down.    

19:31:59  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: skype i don’t mind    

19:32:16  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: taught students and parents that way    

19:32:30  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: IMs i don’t mind    

19:32:51  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: we did know that    

19:32:53  KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: @sharonp – have you tried this link? http://education.smarttech.com/ste/en-US/Ed+Resource/    

19:33:35  sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: @KarenJan – yup, know that and know the pdtogo link as well…. just looking for even better    

19:34:36  KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: @sharonp -what exactly are you looking for?    

19:34:38  sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: have heard a number of folks express frustration and disappointment about SB resources     

19:35:10  Lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: They are getting better, Sharon.  Trying to step it up to compete with Promethean    

19:35:30  sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: aren’t they basically owned by same company? Have heard that recently    

19:35:38  Lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: I don’t think so.    

19:35:41  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @sharonp are you wanting good SB lessons/links for K-12 teachers or just specific resources designed to use with SB software?    

19:36:29  KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: @sharonp – can’t you just use excellent resources in general?     

19:37:06  dave -> -EdTechTalk: http://wiki.idebate.org/index.php/Category:Education    

19:37:15  Lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Martha are you in now?    

19:37:26  Cathy E -> -EdTechTalk: The Dean of Students at my daughter’s college in on FAceBook    

19:37:30  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @sharonp-have you tried a Diigo search for smartboard? Lots of links and resources there    

19:37:32  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: those cases john were in the usa, right?    

19:37:36  sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: I think I have heard from several quarters this summer, both in Canada and abroad, that SB resources have not been that great – am thinking that poeple are trying to see beyond the emperor’s new clothes    

19:37:58  martha -> -EdTechTalk: I’m in!    

19:38:04  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: hey!    

19:38:10  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: awesome link-debatepedia  🙂     

19:38:21  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: but do you have sound martha?    

19:38:46  martha -> -EdTechTalk: I now have sound.  Had to open in IE.    

19:38:48  JohnS -> -EdTechTalk: missouri, Mrs. Durff    

19:39:05  Downes -> -EdTechTalk: Hiya    

19:39:11  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: oh my, attn ya all    

19:39:13  dave -> -EdTechTalk: yo…    

19:39:18  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: downes in the room    

19:39:45  KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: guess we weren’t good enought for him    

19:39:47  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: you scared him away dave    

19:40:09  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: listen on ETT A    

19:41:14  Downes -> -EdTechTalk: Trying, Rogers Internet "can’t find the server at worldbridges.net" (probably because, if they can’t find a site, they serve you advertising instead)    

19:41:26  sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: ha!    

19:41:33  Downes -> -EdTechTalk: You  have to try it about 5 times    

19:41:40  sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: how very like Rogers    

19:41:55  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: i thought clicking heels three times worked    

19:42:19  sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: digital ethics is what Alec is discussing    

19:42:24  Downes -> -EdTechTalk: ok    

19:42:27  JohnS -> -EdTechTalk: Pandora: http://www.pandora.com/      

19:42:45  Downes -> -EdTechTalk: still can’t find it… just a matter of time (I hope)    

19:42:51  courosa -> -EdTechTalk: yes sharon, thanks    

19:42:54  Gary -> -EdTechTalk: Similar to the religious group who wanted to cross the boarder to picket a funeral because Canada has done evil things    

19:43:01  JohnS -> -EdTechTalk: http://www.musicovery.com/    

19:43:21  JohnS -> -EdTechTalk: http://yro.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=08/08/16/1929217&from=rss    

19:43:22  JenW -> -EdTechTalk: your twitter about pandora shocked me    

19:43:26  sroseman -> -EdTechTalk: not in Canada anymore    

19:43:32  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: i clicked on the icon and saved then clicked it to play    

19:43:33  JenW -> -EdTechTalk: didn’t really believe you had not heard of it    

19:43:54  sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: Dear Pandora Visitor,  We are deeply, deeply sorry to say that due to licensing constraints, we can no longer allow access to Pandora for listeners located outside of the U.S. We will continue to work diligently to realize the vision of a truly global Pandora, but for the time being we are required to restrict its use. We are very sad to have to do this, but there is no other alternative.     

19:44:06  Gary -> -EdTechTalk: It was available in Canada – bought music based on it but not now.    

19:44:11  sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: desolé    

19:44:36  KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: grateful to Pandora – allowed me to listen to Strawbs again, hadn’t heard them in years    

19:44:55  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: good advice re Pandora  🙂     

19:45:03  dave -> -EdTechTalk: http://learning-activities.org/widgets/index.php?lastadded=added+any+time    

19:45:22  Downes -> -EdTechTalk: Nope… it’s simply not going to find worldbridges.net    

19:45:44  dave -> -EdTechTalk: http://www.tbd.com/assets/landing_pgs/splash_c.html    

19:46:02  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: did you click on the black icon under ETT A?    

19:46:20  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: choose save    

19:46:28  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: save to desktop    

19:46:29  sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: oh! I had a question about educational software for linux … how much exists?    

19:46:35  JenW -> -EdTechTalk: ohmigosh — you are under 40??    

19:46:38  dave -> -EdTechTalk: @sharon… lots    

19:46:39  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: then go to desktop and play    

19:46:41  courosa -> -EdTechTalk: http://posterous.com/

19:46:48  dave -> -EdTechTalk: @JenW 33

19:47:07  Lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Yay!    

19:47:08  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I’m not sure I want to be on a grown-up list  🙂     

19:47:11  sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: @dave  when was in South Africa, heard the complaint that not much existed ….    

19:47:13  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: i’m 12    

19:47:16  JenW -> -EdTechTalk: Almost can cheer for the 50+ club soon    

19:47:38  KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: lost the audio    

19:47:48  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: still there    

19:47:50  Lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: I still seem to be streaming    

19:47:54  JohnS -> -EdTechTalk: MaintainIT Project: http://www.maintainitproject.org     

19:47:59  KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: ok, it’s me    

19:48:00  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: you are parisi    

19:48:02  KarenJan -> -EdTechTalk: it’s back    

19:48:18  sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: tbd… oh good grief… did I ever share that the first time I tried to sign up for Facebook, wasn’t allowed and was told I was TOO OLD?? Had to bribe a student to invite me    

19:48:33  Lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: REally?    

19:48:43  Lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Do they still have that rule?    

19:49:07  Lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: JL can’t decide who he wants to be?    

19:49:10  JenW -> -EdTechTalk: cookbooks???      

19:49:11  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: really here?    

19:49:17  courosa -> -EdTechTalk: http://www.toddle.com/

19:49:32  JL (now here) -> -EdTechTalk: Hey Lisa, great show this morning – you are now officially the Oprah of EdTechTalk    

19:49:33  Lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Durff…Peggy…newsletter!    

19:49:46  Lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Thanks Jeff    

19:49:54  JohnS -> -EdTechTalk: Bakumatsu Koshashin Generator: http://labs.wanokoto.jp/olds     

19:49:58  Downes -> -EdTechTalk: My only conclusion is that worldbridges is being blocked by Rogers    

19:50:12  Lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Jeff do you want me to call you into the show?  Do you usually come in?    

19:50:14  sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: Down with Rogers!    

19:50:33  JL (now here) -> -EdTechTalk: I don’t know – I think I’ll wait for them to wrap the show    

19:50:57  courosa -> -EdTechTalk: Booooo to Rogers is right    

19:51:10  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @lparisi-what do you mean-newsletter?

19:51:42  sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: Had a frank chat with Rogers earlier this week about their disappointing service to me when I was abroad….    

19:51:50  Lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Should I stop the stream?    

19:52:11  JL (now here) -> -EdTechTalk: Checking server now    

19:52:13  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: you’re really on a roll–wish the show wasn’t over     

19:52:28  courosa -> -EdTechTalk: videos for kids – http://www.totlol.com/    

19:52:32  Downes -> -EdTechTalk: Their DNS lookup has always been bad, but ever since they started redirecting 404 errors to their advertising page, it has been awful    

19:53:12  JenW -> -EdTechTalk: hmmmm that ended quickly    

19:53:16  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Thanks for another bunch of great links!    

19:53:42  mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: ciao
