The purpose of education – power, shaping and control



19:13:16
dave -> see cute children

19:17:36
PeggyG -> the choppy audio is making it very hard to understand
what is being said. not sure if it’s my bandwidth but I’m direct wired.

19:17:58
JL -> sorry – can you listen to ds106 audio?

19:18:03
Connie Sitterley -> Agree Peggy-I am missing much

19:18:08
gary -> @Peggy – we probably are hearing the same

19:18:54
JL -> starting up ETT A stream as well

19:18:59
PeggyG -> I’ll try that

19:19:14
Connie Sitterley -> weird that it is clear right now-then went
to commercial….

19:19:29
JL -> on no!  Commercials!  πŸ™

19:20:02
PeggyG -> commercials are winning!

19:20:27
Connie Sitterley -> good audio right now-hopefully will stay

19:20:34
JL -> http://64.94.100.216:8000/listen.pls

19:20:38
JL -> ETT audio

19:21:17
PeggyG -> got it from the ds106 audio link

19:21:23
PeggyG -> listening in itunes now

19:21:29
PeggyG -> very clear

19:21:33
JL -> good – then I can keep my VAC off

19:23:45
scottlo -> 12 folks currently listening to this on ds106 stream

19:26:17
PeggyG -> that site isn’t very user-friendly–too many clicks to
get to the content…

19:28:18
JenM -> http://edtechweekly.wikispaces.com/EdTechWeekly+184

19:28:58
PeggyG -> if they bring their own technology to school is
everything still blocked?

19:30:06
JL -> anybody still listening to livestream?

19:30:11
JL -> if so, any change?

19:30:13
gary -> Teach biology – “sex” is alway blocked. Each site needs
to be unblocked seperately

19:30:32
connect2jamie -> I’m listening to livestream, and it just got
much better.

19:30:44
JL -> thx

19:30:46
PeggyG -> no just watching the stream and listening on itunes

19:30:46
connect2jamie -> Sounds great now

19:31:29
connect2jamie -> audio just got glitchy again.

19:31:31
PeggyG -> if youtube is blocked can he use something like
viewpure.com that removes everything on the page but the video?

19:38:02
PeggyG -> how has the loss of BECTA affected the national
standards in the UK?

19:39:45
Connie Sitterley -> Same story in the US-for instance, PA
Classrooms for the Future-Year 5-no funds-no replacement for the
laptops purchased 4 years ago-even if progress seems positive

19:41:21
PeggyG -> it looks like many of the earlier ofsted resources now
say “this page may not reflect Government policy”. Is ofsted the
official source of evaluation of success?

19:43:09
dave -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Becta

19:43:44
PeggyG -> I always felt BECTA was leading the way!

19:44:35
PeggyG -> http://www.ofsted.gov.uk/

19:45:24
JenM -> US Centric Links re: Wisconsin Teacher Protests …
http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Politics/2011/0216/In-Wisconsin-standoff-a-test-Has-governor-gone-overboard-to-trim-deficit

19:45:42
PeggyG ->
http://www.education.gov.uk/schools/adminandfinance/procurement/ict/a0073825/becta

19:46:12
PeggyG -> Becta closes formally on 31 March 2011.

19:47:26
dave -> outside of football of course

19:47:37
PeggyG -> excellent summary Jen!

19:48:26
PeggyG -> TX is facing catastrophic losses for technology in
schools

19:49:21
PeggyG -> AZ is a right to work state–Education Association but
no unions

19:49:26
gary -> The Ontario Teachers Union has a great deal of financial
power

19:49:31
Connie Sitterley -> Limits on strike options really have
weakened unions in PA at least

19:49:37
dave -> any time i get to say ‘sacrocanct’ is a good day

19:49:59
PeggyG -> A Right to Work law guarantees that no person can be
compelled, as a condition of employment, to join or not to join, or to
pay dues to a labor union.

19:50:31
JenM -> … and for a more national perspective …


19:50:38
PeggyG -> you mean sacrosanct right? πŸ™‚

19:50:51
Connie Sitterley -> That was the Canadian spelling

19:50:56
PeggyG -> πŸ™‚

19:51:12
dave -> the chatroom mispells things for me

19:51:21
dave -> jeff set it up one day when i wasn’t looking

19:51:45
PeggyG -> I know what you mean Dave! πŸ™‚

19:52:08
gary -> Many good teachers could leave the profession if they
did not have a union.

19:52:17
Connie Sitterley -> The video keeps showing commercials!

19:52:33
PeggyG -> many good teachers have left the profession for lots
of reasons!

19:52:51
PeggyG -> I turned the video off–even with the audio muted the
ads played

19:52:59
gary -> Agreed

19:53:02
Connie Sitterley -> Yep-here too

19:53:59
Connie Sitterley -> Can the other states be in trouble for
harboring fugitives?

19:54:11
PeggyG -> funny Connie!

19:54:12
dave -> 106 miles to chicago. half’a pack of
cigarettes, 

19:54:14
PeggyG -> lost the audio

19:54:35
PeggyG -> can hear Scott

19:54:43
JenM -> oops … did we lose Jeff!

19:54:48
Connie Sitterley -> no audio on video or itunes

19:55:06
PeggyG -> ok-thanks Scott

19:55:12
PeggyG -> hearing Dave now

19:55:27
PeggyG -> censorship??

19:55:46
PeggyG -> very suspicious!

19:56:35
Connie Sitterley -> no Jeff sound

19:56:50
PeggyG -> viewpure is an excellent site

19:57:10
PeggyG -> will also upload in Livebinder without all of the
extra stuff πŸ™‚

19:57:34
Connie Sitterley -> Bye everyone

19:57:39
PeggyG -> is the webcastacademy page working now?

19:58:20
PeggyG -> I like Livestream πŸ™‚ they used it for all of their
streams at the Science Leadership Academy

19:59:06
PeggyG -> yes the ads area  real pain in Livestream–
pop up throughout the session

19:59:24
PeggyG -> Chris Lehmann was able to get them removed for Educon
2.3 though-not sure how

20:00:35
PeggyG -> you have to pay for the skype group conference call,
right?

20:01:49
PeggyG -> something like 9.95 a month?

20:02:32
