6 Year Anniversary Celebration of EdTechTalk#1
19:00:45 Harold -> Hi Dave
19:01:22 dawn -> thx
19:01:59 Harold -> Happy friggin’
19:02:41 Harold -> I think I’m
listening on IceCast – working
19:03:33 Harold -> Icecast died –
now on ustream
19:04:15 Harold -> youz guys
& gals are experts!
19:04:55 Harold -> irony is OK,
but don”t be too cynical, IMO
19:06:29 Harold -> It’s hurting
19:06:50 JenM -> content or audio
19:06:54 Harold -> audio, Jeff
19:07:08 Harold -> I was around
for that one
19:07:27 canugurl -> sounds okay
19:07:31 Harold -> Icecast kicks
in when listening to ustream
19:07:42 Harold -> I keep getting
19:07:43 Jennifer W -> Happy
19:07:44 JenM -> is that Jdub????
19:07:50 JenM -> yeahhhh!
19:08:06 Jennifer W -> Sorry — I
have been AWOL —
19:08:26 Harold -> I have to keep
turning off one of the streams – weird
19:09:37 Harold -> I must say that
you folks were the leaders & a great inspiration – maybe not
tonight though 😉
19:09:39 Jennifer W -> Jen — are
you still in IL???
19:10:18 Harold -> #84 Rocks!
19:11:24 JenM -> @JW … yes …
19:11:58 Jennifer W -> When I
watch Cake Boss — Hoboken, I believe — I think of you, JenM
19:12:42 Harold -> Eliminate is a
much better descriptor
19:13:17 Paula Naugle -> Can’t
hear anything what am I doing wrong?
19:13:33 Jennifer W -> Did you
click on the USTREAM LINK??
19:13:39 jhando -> @Paula the
Icecast worked for me
19:13:43 Harold -> click on one of
the options on the right, Paula
19:14:10 Paula Naugle -> Okay got
19:17:00 Paula Naugle -> This
looks like a vodcast when you click on ustream link.
19:17:13 jhando -> There’s now
video which is innovation.
19:17:37 Harold -> Technology is
the application of organised and scientific knowledge to solve
19:18:05 Jennifer W -> I think
EdTechTalk was a master of trying new things — which sometimes worked
and sometimes didn’t (grins) — but always trying new things
19:18:07 Harold -> I remember th
eearly shows as being very interactive (despite my crappy audio quality)
19:18:18 Bud -> Happy anniversary,
19:18:33 Harold -> Hi Bud!
19:18:34 Jennifer W -> and using
us as guinea pigs….dragging us along to try new things as
well. (esp chat rooms & video feeds)
19:19:20 Jennifer W -> and of
course — my all time favorite — POST SHOW!!! LOVE
19:20:04 jhando -> I remember not
being able to paste links into chat…. hasn’t changed 😉
19:20:07 JenM -> I used to say
“the convergence of messy and magical” 😉
19:20:08 Bud -> What I always
liked about the space here is that y’all do – you ship – you get audio
19:20:58 Jennifer W -> and when
Jeff or Dave did the 365 experiment?? that was
19:21:11 jhando -> Everyone’s
probably busier now with so many other technologies, talks, books, etc
in this space
19:21:20 Jennifer W -> I liked the
fact that you URGED us to fail — but you were there to help us
19:22:03 Jennifer W -> and how we
PUSHED things til they broke….just to see how far we could push
19:22:34 Bud -> I still miss the
guests. Y’all’re good interviewers.
19:22:44 Paula Naugle -> Went to
first tech conference – NECC in New Orleans in 2004. Didn’t know what
they were talking about – podcasts, wikis, blogs, Nings, Moodle, etc.
Come away determined to learn. Boy that seems so long ago.
19:23:29 Jennifer W -> and another
memory — Jen’s husband waiting in the closet til the show was
19:23:46 JenM -> @JW .. oh, yay!
19:24:27 Bud -> But, Jeff – you’re
good at it.
19:24:35 Jennifer W -> where is
19:24:45 Bud -> aw, heck
19:24:50 Bud -> I was responding
19:24:55 Bud -> you are
a fine team.
19:24:58 JenM -> … at a family
picnic … he should be joining us soon
19:25:05 Bud -> I;’ll explicitly
mention Jen and Dave and Jeff. Bravo, TEAM.
19:25:21 Jennifer W -> you were
our twitter before twitter
19:26:00 Bud -> You know, maybe
interviews aren’t so good
19:27:53 JenM ->
19:28:14 Harold -> LMS = snake oil
19:28:30 Paula Naugle -> I use
Edmodo as my LMS with 4th graders.
19:28:41 Harold -> yes, Dave – WP
is a better option than an LMS
19:29:17 Cathy E -> Don’t forget
that many of us in the US don’t have bandwidth either
19:29:20 Harold -> Oligopolies
rule Canada 🙁
19:29:45 Jennifer W -> WordPress
began in 2003
19:29:56 Jennifer W -> so says
19:30:19 dawn -> I wonder about
edublog verson. Does it allow students to have their own blog?
19:30:37 Harold -> but blogger is
not open source – own your data
19:31:03 jhando -> Unfortunately
we are driven by assessments here so Moodle is still best option ie.
19:31:12 Jennifer W -> DRUPAL —
what a headache — but what a triumph. Learned a
lot but lost a lot of hair
19:31:12 Harold -> even Microsoft
shifted their Live accounts to WordPress
19:31:34 Harold -> Drupal is great
(for industrial strength applications)
19:31:59 Jennifer W -> being able
to tear drupal apart made me not hesitate at all with tweaking my word
press (self-hosted) blog
19:32:01 JenM ->
19:33:49 Jennifer W -> crum—
where is Durff and Doug?? gonna tweet this out again
19:34:49 Paula Naugle -> Durff’s
at the beach.
19:35:21 Jennifer W -> @Paula —
thinking of past shows…..where are all the hosts?
19:36:32 Jennifer W -> for 3+
years of my life — this was my Home on the Web
19:36:33 Harold -> social – on the
institution’s terms – is not social
19:37:18 Bud -> Oh,
Furl. How I miss thee.
19:37:29 Paula Naugle -> I’ve only
attended a half dozen times. Need to add this to Google calendar so I
remember to come.
19:37:30 Harold -> I remember when
Furl was my social bookmark tool too 🙂 went south just like Magnolia
19:37:33 Bud -> It’s true.
19:37:56 jhando -> Is this social?
19:38:15 Harold -> yes, it’s still
Bud’s message on Skype 😉
19:38:43 JenM ->
19:38:51 Bud -> Why mess with what
19:39:57 Harold -> CONTROL
19:40:07 jhando -> Rubrics are for
progress and improvement, gradual improvement
19:41:03 dave ->
19:41:06 jhando -> Same things
happens in workplace ie. appraisals
19:41:25 Jennifer W -> If a
teacher only judges the project based on a rubric, I believe they will
miss a lot about the projects. Rubrics (to me)
19:41:47 Jennifer W -> limit
uniqueness perhaps would be a better word choice
19:42:36 jhando -> Rubric should
be written by students
19:43:07 jhando -> It’s like goal
setting in learning process
19:43:17 Paula Naugle -> I find I
want to change project rubric after proects are turned in because I see
things I didn’t include on original rbric.
19:43:36 jhando -> @Paula v true
19:45:06 jhando -> Schools are
addicted to measuring unfort
19:45:34 jhando -> Or is it
parents addicted to it? Or governments?
19:45:35 Paula Naugle -> Rubrics
seem like easy way out when grading, definitely need to include a box
which require instructor to add comments.
19:46:04 jhando -> Students always
tell me that comments are the most important feedback
19:46:06 jeff -> we should start
our post show soon
19:46:24 Cathy E -> What about
ISTE? Anybody going?
19:46:38 Harold -> “am I some kind
of idiot?” (I refuse to answer that)
19:46:52 JenM -> @harold … he he
19:47:09 jhando -> Question:
what’s the largest number of ppl in EdTechTalk chat over 6 years?
19:47:16 Jennifer W -> No — to
19:47:30 Paula Naugle -> I’m going
19:48:12 dave -> in the chat?
maybe close to 100 once…
19:48:16 Jennifer W -> It is WAY
too early for POST SHOW
19:48:56 Jennifer W -> I think the
night WOW2 had the Posse group on, we were close to 100.
19:49:13 jhando -> 100 and nothing
19:49:25 Jennifer W -> we broke
skype before we broke EdTechTalk
19:49:44 Paula Naugle -> Hi Maria.
19:49:47 jhando -> there was a
time when skype broke often
19:49:52 MariaK -> hello
19:50:00 jhando -> now the
interface (at least on Mac) is broken 😉
19:50:12 jhando -> hi MariaK
19:50:20 jhando -> where are u
19:50:37 MariaK -> Thought i’d
catch the last 10 minutes instead of listening later!
19:51:12 Bud -> keep up the good
work, ysll. Especially Dave. Because I’d hate for him to feel
19:51:44 Cathy E -> My staff gets
much more PD online
19:52:09 JenM -> An attempt to
describe informal PD via twitter: http://bigthink.com/ideas/38698
19:52:10 Jennifer W -> My staff
needs to start considering PD online
19:52:50 Jennifer W -> JenM — I
was #1 on that list…. it was nice of Scott to
include me. 🙂
19:52:57 Paula Naugle -> I’m
presenting an all day workkshop for 25 tech coordinators on Wed. I’m
19:53:09 jhando -> Accreditation
is probably number one factor for choosing pd events
19:53:28 jhando -> @Paula what’s
the focus of preso?
19:53:37 Cathy E -> We are using
the chat in Google Apps for PD
19:53:53 Harold -> those who own
accreditation, control the system
19:53:56 Cathy E -> very informal
– but it works
19:53:59 Jennifer W -> I list WOW2
on my resume
19:54:01 Paula Naugle -> Beleive
it or not they asked me to present Web 2.0 tools.
19:54:16 MariaK -> It also depends
on the school district. Some districts accept a variety of PD – not
just formal. We use a portfolio based PD reporting so my reflections
about how I learn and how it affects my practice can include EdTechTalk.
19:54:22 jhando -> @Paula good
luck with it
19:54:32 JenM -> Oh, yeah …
19:54:42 dawn -> @MariaK
19:54:48 Paula Naugle -> @jhando
19:55:59 jhando -> Why wld a
teacher care if they already are trained and earning their dough?
19:56:10 Jennifer W -> That post
was very easy to knee-jerk to if you did not read it
carefully. He seemed to be knocking neighbor fence
conversations but he really was not
19:56:11 Paula Naugle -> Is there
any info on number of admins, principals, teachers, who blog?
19:56:28 Jennifer W -> NO NO NO —
not post show???
19:56:31 Jennifer W -> its too
19:56:46 jhando -> I wld estimate
there’s 1-2 in each school blogging, if that
19:56:47 Jennifer W -> HAPPY
19:56:59 Cathy E -> Ya’ll ROCK!!!
19:57:09 Jennifer W -> OH, we are
starting a new show in September — but will talk with you later
19:57:11 Paula Naugle -> Happy
Anniversary to you.
19:57:32 Jennifer W -> you will be
around in September???
19:57:39 MariaK -> So glad i could
be here to say Happy Anniversary. meet most of my best friends here!
19:57:42 Jennifer W -> and
remember the 24 hour sessions???
19:57:42 jhando -> Good on
everyone for sticking with it for 6 yrs
19:58:33 Harold -> nothing in life
19:58:43 Jennifer W -> understood
19:59:07 Paula Naugle -> You have
been responsible for helping so many to learn. Thank you.
20:01:21 dawn -> wow good for you
20:02:01 Jennifer W -> EdTechTalk
gave me confidence to talk out my thoughts…..so THANK YOU for all you
have offered generously to us all.
20:02:30 dave -> he’s just about
to say that he misses talking to us
20:02:32 dave -> anytime now
20:02:45 dave -> he’s going to say
“talking to you guys is something i really mis”
20:03:28 JenM -> @jw … great
point … “confidence to talk” … and I’ll add … ability to
summarize a whole bunch of stuff you are seeing out there in the world
20:04:15 Paul Ellerman -> WOW its
been 6 years! Holy cow!!
20:04:52 Jennifer W -> Dr Jen??
20:05:31 MariaK -> EdTechTalk help
me begin my new life – connected learning, connected classroom,
connected person. Gave me the energy to keep going. A new beginning. My
6 year anniversary of listening is July.
20:05:40 Paul Ellerman -> I

20:06:07 Jennifer W -> well if
EDTECHTALK is ending the season — WE HAVE TO HAVE A FINAL
