2010-02-23 20:01:23 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: good idea Wes!

2010-02-23 20:01:25 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: Hi Wes! Thanks!

2010-02-23 20:01:53 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: I just spent time today browsing the Wallwisher Kelly created for her K12online presentation! Fantastic example!!

2010-02-23 20:02:12 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: where in the south are you from originally, Kelly?

2010-02-23 20:02:18 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: North Carolina

2010-02-23 20:02:24 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: hi Kim!

2010-02-23 20:02:24 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: I’m going to use her presentation in a workshop next week πŸ™‚ Elementary teachers and I know they will love it!

2010-02-23 20:02:50 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: that is such a mantra now: focus on the learning!

2010-02-23 20:03:00 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: such an important point!

2010-02-23 20:03:00 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: exactly!

2010-02-23 20:03:23 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: here we go! Kelly’s presentation πŸ™‚

2010-02-23 20:04:40 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: I had never seen Wallwisher before – what a great tool

2010-02-23 20:04:57 [Message] kcaise -> Room 1: there is no limit on the users of a wall

2010-02-23 20:05:10 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: Isn’t it east? I love the lack of need for student registration

2010-02-23 20:05:12 [Message] kcaise -> Room 1: it is great wes for users of all ages

2010-02-23 20:05:14 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: the CIPA / FERPA issues are really important, but I think they are often used as an excuse to not let students participate in interactive technologies

2010-02-23 20:05:22 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: What is a "plus delta" situation?

2010-02-23 20:05:36 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: Kelly do you have to teach your teachers about backchannel?

2010-02-23 20:05:47 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: Plus Delta is just another term for Pro/Con

2010-02-23 20:05:58 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: ah – where does that name come from?

2010-02-23 20:06:11 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: I don’t do too much back channeling with my class this year. A bit much for this group to handle.

2010-02-23 20:06:12 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: are wallwisher screens archived forever?

2010-02-23 20:06:14 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: the ways Kelly used wallwisher with her students was so important to extend student thinking–not just facts

2010-02-23 20:06:20 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: yes they are Wes

2010-02-23 20:06:38 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: When you create an acct with wallwisher, you can create multiple walls and keep track of them.

2010-02-23 20:06:44 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: we can still add notes to her K12online wallwisher she started during her official presentation

2010-02-23 20:06:46 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: They are also embeddable in other places.

2010-02-23 20:06:56 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: http://www.wallwisher.com/wall/k12online09

2010-02-23 20:07:17 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: that is great. I just wish Google sites permitted more embedding… I know there are security concerns with embedding, but it’s so powerful to insert it on your own site!

2010-02-23 20:07:21 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: Peggy, I’m not sure where Plus/Delta came from – it’s a term we use in PD

2010-02-23 20:07:22 [Message] Susan van Gelder -> Room 1: That is a good feature

2010-02-23 20:07:31 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: you’re reading my mind!

2010-02-23 20:08:06 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: there are some embedded blogs on her wallwisher for k12online πŸ™‚

2010-02-23 20:08:15 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: πŸ™‚

2010-02-23 20:08:19 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: monitoring is very important. I noticed poll everywhere offers a profanity filter now

2010-02-23 20:08:20 [Message] kcaise -> Room 1: doesn’t delta have soemthing to do with minus, like plus/minus as in pros and cons

2010-02-23 20:08:40 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: kelly, have you had any problem with kids posting disruptive things in the wallwisher?

2010-02-23 20:08:44 [Message] Susan van Gelder -> Room 1: I have to try out wallwisher more

2010-02-23 20:08:55 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: Kelly monitors and approves all postings I think

2010-02-23 20:09:04 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: No, I haven’t yet. The kids really do their best.

2010-02-23 20:09:06 [Message] kcaise -> Room 1: [b]i believe you can remove disruptive or inappropriate comments

2010-02-23 20:09:13 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: ah, so you can gatekeep all the posts. Nice.

2010-02-23 20:09:20 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: Yes, you can remove as well.

2010-02-23 20:09:36 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: if you’re the creator/moderator you can remove them but I can’t remove other people’s sticky notes

2010-02-23 20:09:43 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: Right…

2010-02-23 20:09:57 [Message] kcaise -> Room 1: [b]what an interesting way to use wordle!

2010-02-23 20:10:07 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: we’ve started a wallwisher for Earthcast10 πŸ™‚

2010-02-23 20:10:08 [Message] Susan van Gelder -> Room 1: are there levels of privacy with wallwisher?

2010-02-23 20:10:12 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: that is a great higher order thinking challenge!

2010-02-23 20:10:23 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: fantastic use of wordle!!

2010-02-23 20:10:25 [Message] Susan van Gelder -> Room 1: I thought this was a great idea

2010-02-23 20:10:28 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: There are so levels – you can restrict access of viewing and posting.

2010-02-23 20:10:42 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: I love this use of Wordle to provoke conversations and discussions in class

2010-02-23 20:10:50 [Message] kcaise -> Room 1: [b]kids post their justification for who/what the historical event was about in the wordle on wallwisher

2010-02-23 20:10:51 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: Jen Wagner has a project going with "Guess this Person" using Wordle. Really fun!

2010-02-23 20:10:56 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: Hello Joyce!

2010-02-23 20:10:59 [Message] Susan van Gelder -> Room 1: yes – the wordle is only the starting point

2010-02-23 20:11:03 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: With Wordle, it’s so easy because you can just copy/paste text.

2010-02-23 20:11:11 [Message] joycevalenza -> Room 1: hey wes!

2010-02-23 20:11:11 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: Hi Joyce! so glad you could join us!

2010-02-23 20:11:12 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: Hi joyce!

2010-02-23 20:11:17 [Message] Susan van Gelder -> Room 1: Hi Joyce

2010-02-23 20:11:21 [Message] joycevalenza -> Room 1: πŸ™‚ Hi friends!

2010-02-23 20:11:34 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: The Guess this Person would be a fun "getting to know you activity" at the start of a year.

2010-02-23 20:11:44 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: Kelly: do you use something to capture the wordle (screen snap)?

2010-02-23 20:12:00 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: I wish you could save wordles as jpgs directly from the site. have to take a screenshot

2010-02-23 20:12:28 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: I do have to screenshot, but you also get an embed code for it when you publish.

2010-02-23 20:12:30 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: I have made coffee mugs with wordles I have created — great personalized gifts

2010-02-23 20:12:31 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: I have never used Wordle for my delicious tags… can you do that with a Diigo account?

2010-02-23 20:12:33 [Message] Susan van Gelder -> Room 1: agreed Peggy

2010-02-23 20:12:42 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: yes you can Wes

2010-02-23 20:12:57 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: unless you have several thousand tags πŸ™‚

2010-02-23 20:13:00 [Message] Susan van Gelder -> Room 1: I didn’t know it works with diigo too

2010-02-23 20:13:00 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: like me

2010-02-23 20:13:06 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: me too Peggy!

2010-02-23 20:13:27 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: I wonder what percentage of k12 classroom teachers today know how to embed content in another website? This was new for almost all my pre-service teachers this term.

2010-02-23 20:13:37 [Message] Susan van Gelder -> Room 1: interesting way to look at graphic design

2010-02-23 20:13:42 [Message] Susan van Gelder -> Room 1: and the use of colour

2010-02-23 20:13:48 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: I think more are learning because many of the pre-packaged"

2010-02-23 20:13:57 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: teachers are so excited when they learn how easy it is to embed–and how powerful πŸ™‚

2010-02-23 20:13:58 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: web hosts for schools allow embedding.

2010-02-23 20:14:16 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: that is very good…

2010-02-23 20:14:43 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: isn’t that a great activity??!!

2010-02-23 20:14:57 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: Kelly: Your comfort level at the "invention" level of teaching and technology integration is so apparent… such great modeling for us all!

2010-02-23 20:15:01 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: I started out years ago doing the types of sentences activity on sentence strips!

2010-02-23 20:15:07 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: Thanks

2010-02-23 20:15:27 [Message] Susan van Gelder -> Room 1: and fun for the kids

2010-02-23 20:15:34 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: drag and drop is fantastic

2010-02-23 20:15:41 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: I love the focus on "retelling a story" in another modality

2010-02-23 20:15:56 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: what tool is this now?

2010-02-23 20:15:59 [Message] kcaise -> Room 1: [b]hi maureen

2010-02-23 20:16:01 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: Wes, one thing I work on with teachers is taking a lesson with which they are comfortable and then adapting. It takes away the stress of pedagogy invention.

2010-02-23 20:16:05 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: yes Wes and can make the stories less linear πŸ™‚

2010-02-23 20:16:05 [Message] Maureen -> Room 1: Hi Kim

2010-02-23 20:16:30 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: yes, the "let’s give a digital makeover / facelift" to a familiar lesson is a great strategy!

2010-02-23 20:16:58 [Message] Susan van Gelder -> Room 1: But important not to just do old things in a new way

2010-02-23 20:18:07 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: the link to Comix.com isn’t working… is that the right link?

2010-02-23 20:18:09 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: Edmodo is great for grownups too πŸ™‚

2010-02-23 20:18:10 [Message] kcaise -> Room 1: [b]they have some neat things in store for future releases

2010-02-23 20:18:17 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: It also allows for cross – school collaboration. Can create a code for a collaborative group between 2 teachers

2010-02-23 20:18:25 [Message] Maureen -> Room 1: @ Kelly Are yo usure of that url- I’m getting a funky page

2010-02-23 20:18:34 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: Let me check back – sorry

2010-02-23 20:22:27 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: have you receive much feedback on this preso, Kelly?

2010-02-23 20:23:05 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: I can’t believe you were able to provide such concise demos of those products and ways to use them with kids in 20 mins!

2010-02-23 20:23:14 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: Hey that is great, I haven’t heard of anyone doing a k12online preso in SMART notebook first – nice

2010-02-23 20:24:11 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: one of the teachers in AZ is using the K12online presentations as PD for her teachers and Kelly’s is one they are using–they’re very excited

2010-02-23 20:24:18 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: I TOTALLY agree that finding ways to energize kids and unleash their enthusiasm is so KEY!

2010-02-23 20:24:59 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: we need to get all the elementary-specific presos for k12online and somehow find a way to aggregate them, to make them more accessible…

2010-02-23 20:25:17 [Message] Peggy George -> Room 1: do all of the kids have access to computers during a lesson Kelly? like for backchanneling or adding to wallwisher?

2010-02-23 20:25:23 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: @Maureen how has using Wallwisher been different for your students organizing their research?

2010-02-23 20:25:32 [Message] kellyhines -> Room 1: They do, yes.

2010-02-23 20:25:40 [Message] Maureen -> Room 1: Ahh- checked the wiki- thx wes- it was comiqs.com

2010-02-23 20:37:37 [Message] Peggy again -> Room 1: National Board is a great example of the importance of teachers reflecting on their own practice

2010-02-23 20:37:54 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: I have heard many teachers talk about national certification as one of the most challenging things they’d ever done

2010-02-23 20:39:47 [Message] Maureen -> Room 1: When I taught K I looked at it, but with my "new" job in tech, I have barely time to breathe, not reflecting at the moment- constant game of catchup for me. I would love to have the time/make the time to do such an important project and reflect on my learning/teaching.

2010-02-23 20:39:49 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: interdisciplinary connections – YES!

2010-02-23 20:40:19 [Message] Peggy again -> Room 1: time is such a big issue for teachers, Maureen!! rarely have time to reflect!

2010-02-23 20:40:23 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: @Maureen the reflection phase is so important, yet too often we don’t have or maketime for it

2010-02-23 20:41:05 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: goal setting IS so important to teach!

2010-02-23 20:41:25 [Message] Maureen -> Room 1: @wes- I pretend that it is because I don’t have the time, and altho that is valid- making time for the important things- if it’s valued, make the time.

2010-02-23 20:41:54 [Message] Peggy again -> Room 1: one of the participants in a webinar with Lead and Learn today talked about embedding PD during the day–called it PD4kids and teachers are learning and reflecting during their time with kids

2010-02-23 20:42:16 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: @Maureen well, we only have so many minutes… in that facilitator role, I think boundaries can be so important to have and maintain. Sometimes they are ill defined…

2010-02-23 20:42:23 [Message] Maureen -> Room 1: @Peggy- that would be a great idea to try- model it with the kids

2010-02-23 20:42:24 [Message] Peggy again -> Room 1: goal setting is the core for the individualized PD project I mentioned earlier

2010-02-23 20:42:41 [Message] Peggy again -> Room 1: exactly Maureen!! model it with the kids–thinking out loud

2010-02-23 20:42:59 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: We have a district in Oklahoma (Cresent PS) doing PD every Wednesday, kids get out early and teachers get together. Only district in our state authorized to do this. Very innovative model.

2010-02-23 20:43:30 [Message] Peggy again -> Room 1: AZ is doing that in many districts too–really helps so teachers have time to collaborate when they aren’t exhausted!

2010-02-23 20:43:41 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: "it energized me" – so important

2010-02-23 20:44:01 [Message] Maureen -> Room 1: I miss having a group of kids all day- doing 40 min/switch all day makes it hard to find the time to do what I feel I should be doing- really taking time to reflect and talk about what worked/what didn’t and why

2010-02-23 20:44:02 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: @Peggy do AZ schools have to get special permission to make that schedule change?

2010-02-23 20:44:32 [Message] Peggy again -> Room 1: the presenter in the webinar (Successful Practices for Principals) today said it was important to do more than set aside time to collaborate–it also needed some focus

2010-02-23 20:44:45 [Message] Maureen -> Room 1: @wes, yes- the curriculum is totally up to me

2010-02-23 20:45:10 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: @Maureen that is one of the aspects of being an elementary tech facilitator that I did enjoy. I missed the deeper relationships with students tho

2010-02-23 20:48:36 [Message] Maureen -> Room 1: @Peggy- I can’t get teachers at my school to do them. No interest, no time, etc. Independent school- teachers wear many hats- coaching after school, etc. So it is a valid excuse, but ….

2010-02-23 20:48:39 [Message] Peggy again -> Room 1: I did a Skype call with a 5th grade in NC when they were studying states and the students interviewed me about AZ πŸ™‚ I wore my Phoenix Suns tshirt

2010-02-23 20:51:47 [Message] Peggy again -> Room 1: another great resource for 1:1 mentoring is to use the "3 for free" rooms in Elluminate via LearnCentral

2010-02-23 20:52:11 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: good idea Peggy – are there university classes doing that now that you know of?

2010-02-23 20:52:18 [Message] Peggy again -> Room 1: I agree Wes! that was a great example of connecting students with mentors virtually

2010-02-23 20:52:53 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: YES – isn’t that so interesting how pre-service teachers don’t naturally make connections of social media and other technologies for classroom-based learning?!

2010-02-23 20:52:54 [Message] Peggy again -> Room 1: because it’s 3 for free you can only have 3 people in the session but I do that all the time

2010-02-23 20:53:33 [Message] Peggy again -> Room 1: university classes could definitely use it to mentor elementary students πŸ™‚

2010-02-23 20:53:35 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: I’m blown away how LITTLE my pre-service teachers have used and are thinking now about using digital technologies to support learning this term

2010-02-23 20:54:13 [Message] Peggy again -> Room 1: I agree Wes!! as a previous pre-service instructor I can definitely relate to how little of that is going on

2010-02-23 20:54:13 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: not everyone has been "learning in the 21st century" for 10 years… I think lots are still "learning 20th century style, or 19th century style"…

2010-02-23 20:54:48 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: I think there is a lot of tweeting going on now about "going paperless" for earth day this year in schools

2010-02-23 20:55:10 [Message] wfryer -> Room 1: @Mareen that is why PD like this and k12online is so important to share!
