quite a while
[19:16] arthus: @Suzie
actually, edtech site of the moment for me is WizIQ

I use wikispaces ALOT – you have to

[19:24] AliceMercer: Hey
have we ever talked about Moving Forward?
[19:24] sharonp: but
my wikis – or the ones I belong to – are very different from each other
[19:24] sharonbetts: My
issue is that no one solution has everything I need
[19:25] JenM4:http://podcamp.pbwiki.com/PodCampEDU
[19:25] leebaber:
can you turn your volume up a little
[19:25] Durff: otherwise they fill up ’cause kids
like images, sound, movies

[19:25] Durff: take alot of space
[19:25] Durff: fill one up and learn
http://movingforward.wikispaces.com[19:25] sharonbetts: does
anyone use Elgg
[19:25] JohnSchinker: I
think Dave’s maxed out on volume.
[19:26] AliceMercer: SB:
[19:26] davecormier: there
are a few people who use it
[19:26] davecormier: i’ve
grown very tired of it
[19:26] sharonp: I
like the elgg idea
[19:26] JohnSchinker: It
used to be a lot more popular than it is now.
[19:26] JohnSchinker: We’re
thinking about using it for portfolios
[19:26] davecormier: the
interface has never gotten better
[19:26] sharonbetts: I
believe it has wikis, blogs, forums etc. right? Why has it faded (ELGG)
[19:26] sharonp: but
not sure I like the elgg itself
[19:26] Jeff Lebow: http://blog.meebo.com/?p=370[19:27] AliceMercer: Howdy,
[19:27] AliceMercer: I
have NO idea?
[19:27] AliceMercer: I

[19:27] SuzieQ: no
[19:27] sharonp: nope
[19:27] davecormier: i’ve
started communities and participated in communities with it
[19:27] sharonbetts: AHA
– I am going crazy trying to get decision on what to use for the k12
[19:27] Durff: are you kidding?
[19:27] davecormier: and
tried very hard to like elgg
[19:27] AliceMercer:
Ya want me to experiement?
[19:27] Durff: of course not
[19:27] davecormier: the
devel community is not responsive
[19:27] Durff: i do alice
[19:27] sharonbetts: experiment

[19:27] Durff: i meant of course not jeff
[19:28] AliceMercer: lisa,
maybe we can try to do tomorrow’s planning event with meebo?
[19:28] sharonp: Sharon,
you DON’T want Sakai or Open CMS – trust me on that!
[19:28] AliceMercer: Wait,
arent’ we using Meebo NOW JL?
[19:28] Durff: don’t count on my mic working
[19:28] Riptide Furse: Hi
[19:28] AliceMercer: Howdy!
[19:28] Durff: i think it is out for the count
[19:28] sharonbetts: My
staff really likes Meebo and we use it for in-service back channel (no
[19:29] JasonR: Do
they help with posting the podcast?
[19:29] AliceMercer: SB:
it’s blocked in my district
[19:29] sharonbetts:
there is so much going ad free for
teachers – Voicethread
[19:29] sharonp: I
am really hip on wikis – have you considered media wiki, Sharon?
[19:29] Durff: i’m in here twice
[19:29] sharonbetts: sharonp
– yes, I have considered about 5 different ones. I love wikis
[19:29] AliceMercer: OUCH<
you kill me
[19:30] AliceMercer: Someone
clicked on it.
[19:30] Durff: clicked on what?
[19:30] JenM4: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5648
[19:30] sharonbetts:
I need to be able to seamlessly use
wikis and blogs – we use Moodle, but the blogs are non-existant and the
wiki poor.
[19:30] CNelson: what>
[19:30] AliceMercer: Sarcasm?
[19:30] Durff: clicked on sarcasm?
[19:30] AliceMercer: WOW!
[19:30] sharonbetts: I
like screencast-o-matic
[19:31] sharonbetts: and
of course Jing
[19:31] sharonp: I
agree, Sharon – the wiki is weak in moodle – it is even lamer in Sakai
[19:31] AliceMercer: Cause
I think still screenshots are better than streaming video of screen…
[19:31] davecormier: good
debate on alex’s blog about this right now sharonbetts…
[19:31] Durff: click-o-casm
[19:31] CNelson: lol\

[19:31] CNelson: lol
[19:31] sharonbetts: LInk
to alex’s blog
[19:31] sharonp: but
I like the fact that so much already integrates into a wiki – video,
chat, images, etc
[19:31] AliceMercer: Lack
of relevance.
[19:32] Jeff Lebow: http://vimeo.com
[19:32] AliceMercer: That’ll
teach ’em
[19:32] sharonbetts: Yes,
wikis can almost be everything – but no quizes
[19:32] davecormier: sharon…

[19:35] AliceMercer: Will

[19:35] JasonR: /me

[19:35] Gary: Vimeo

[19:40] Durff: naked women do NOT belong in the
middle of any classroom

[19:40] CNelson: ºDurff
I used a news blurb about the woamn Jammie Thoams who was convicted for
illegally downloading in a very effective lesson on ethical use
[19:40] AliceMercer: Nope
I didn’t
[19:40] CNelson: right
from youtube
[19:40] AliceMercer: I
wanted to but won’t
[19:40] sharonbetts: what
is naked women – I pushed a link to install your own media server – run
your own YouTube in house intranet
[19:40] JohnSchinker: http://www.writingfix.com[19:40] sharonbetts: did
I ever get Alex’s blog

john… who skipped him
[19:41] AliceMercer: Hey
someone was reading Brian Crosby
[19:41] davecormier: Sharon…
it’s next!
[19:41] sharonp: saying
all of youtube is objectionable is like saying all print media is bad
because of pornography and propaganda
[19:41] davecormier: next!
[19:41] Durff: why bother – use teachertube
[19:41] JasonR: durff:
depends on what classroom. Art history???
[19:41] CNelson: or
that pencils are dangerous tools
[19:41] sharonbetts: I
download lots of YouTube and republish them for teachers
[19:41] AliceMercer: Sharon,
you don’t put the whole newstand in an elementary library
[19:41] CNelson: me
too Sharon
[19:41] sharonbetts: I
also really use TeacherTube a lot.
[19:41] JohnSchinker:http://www.businessblogconsulting.com/2006/12/how-to-subscribe-to-a-blog-feed
[19:41] arthus: @JasonR
art history isn’t in elementary

tue has a lot of Hot issues for current events classes
[19:42] AliceMercer: I
like YouTube, I wish they would unblock for teachers, but having k-6
wandering there in my lab would be a PITA
[19:42] sharonp: exactly,
Alice – one uses media discriminately
[19:42] CNelson: great
discssion starters and debate starters
[19:42] sharonbetts: Alice
– newstand? I think my link to 
[19:42] arthus: how
is RSS hard to understand?
[19:42] sharonp: I
think youtube should be unblocked for teachers, not for students
[19:42] JasonR: should
be. But the statement was any classroom
[19:42] sharonbetts: My
teachers are finally getting RSS
[19:42] Durff: yes
jason in all k12 – we are not trying to chase people away – we are
trying to pull people into the echo chamber – what better way to get
parents to close their minds?

[19:42] CNelson: when
u haven’t experienced rss it is
[19:43] Durff: RSS is great
[19:43] CNelson: what
is the best way to intro rss OTHER than common craft
[19:43] Durff: dave!
[19:43] CNelson: lol
[19:43] AliceMercer: BECAUSE
someone said YOUTUBE
[19:43] CNelson: woot
[19:43] Gary: RSS
vs porn??? Hmmm
[19:43] sharonbetts: that’s
good new
[19:43] davecormier:http://www.learning-blog.org/2007/10/25/not-drupal-wordpress-mu
[19:43] sharonbetts:
YEA thanks
[19:43] AliceMercer: Cause
they are “hooking up” and getting real dates, not virtual ones, lol
[19:43] Durff: go sharon betts!
[19:44] JasonR: @am:
[19:44] sharonp: LOL
at Alice about real dates
[19:44] arthus: WordPress
MU is awesome
[19:44] AliceMercer: Well,
the hook up situation has it’s own downside…
[19:44] Cathy E: If I can drupal – anybody can
[19:44] JohnSchinker: RSS
[19:44] leebaber: I
[19:44] sharonbetts: I
have installed DRupal – but eventually went to Joomla for the site – we
also have Moodle. Looking for the correct blog and wiki solutions. And
then how to combine them
[19:44] arthus: I
disagree, WordPress has a great API
[19:45] leebaber: Yours
is looking so good
[19:45] Durff: in my classes we check our rss
before we do the day’s work

[19:45] JenM4:http://www.poptech.com[19:45] sharonp: wish
we would use drupal
[19:45] JohnSchinker: Lots
of wordpress stuff breaks when they upgrade it though, which they do
every four months
[19:45] Durff: i like poptecch!
[19:45] leebaber: yep
[19:45] leebaber: I
may have sent it to you jen
[19:46] sharonbetts: Oh
no, I will be off to listen to the podcasts – I still don’t have
k12Online finished
[19:46] Durff: me either
[19:46] leebaber: I
have been watching them for my edtech cognate
[19:46] Jeff Lebow: http://www.nysais.org/page.cfm?p=4&verbose=231&month=11&start=11/01/07
[19:46] arthus:
neiter do I
[19:46] leebaber: authoring
[19:46] sharonbetts: John,
that is discouraging for WordPress
[19:46] Durff: yeah jeff!
[19:46] davecormier: it’s
a fantastic blogging platform
[19:47] JohnSchinker: Yeah.
Wordpress is still worth the trouble, but I try to keep the number of
plugins I use to a manageable level
[19:47] davecormier: plugging
thigns into it gets messy over teh long haul
[19:47] JenM4: to
add links for next week … tag them as “for:edtechtalk” when in

[19:47] Jeff2: http://www.collegedegree.com/library/college-life/99-mind-mapping
[19:47] Durff: and his stream was incredibly cleat
[19:47] arthus: @davecormeir
none of my plugins have broken yet, and i wrote most of them
[19:47] AliceMercer: Plugging
[19:47] Durff: clear
[19:47] sharonp: yeah,
Jeff – I can be there for you – NOvember 14 and 16th
[19:47] sharonbetts: yep
this is nice.
[19:48] Jeff Lebow: excellent
[19:48] sharonbetts: I
always forget to send my links to edtechtalk – I’ll try to remember

[19:48] JasonR: I

parsing, make it bigger.
[19:48] arthus: I
lost all chats half way through
[19:48] AliceMercer: and
whte window is too big
[19:48] CNelson: i

[19:50] CNelson: okay

[19:50] sharonp: the
WOW2 ladies need to get together to agree on any show changes
[19:51] CNelson: pls

[19:51] Durff: there are arrows
[19:51] leebaber: complain
to meebo
[19:51] AliceMercer: Hey,
I like the color code for names!
[19:51] Durff: run your cursor over them
[19:51] Durff: pull the window to the right
[19:51] SuzieQ: move the little arrows …gives
more text screen

[19:51] AliceMercer: I
can find people, and when comments are split up, I can find the first
part easy with color coding
[19:52] Durff: dave is always argumentative
[19:52] sharonp: we
want user control!
