tkaminski -> @wes Been loving your blof posts the last week
alicebarr (seedling) -> Hi Wes
PeggyG -> Hi Wes-great to see you. I’ve spent a good part of today listening to your last podcasts to get caught up with you 🙂
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Hello Kdumont, LUcy, Peggy, Yeah!!! Wes, witeacher, tkaminiski
Wes Fryer -> I’ve got you all plugged into our living room stereo again. Rachel just said, "Oh, a podcast" (because she recognizes your voices from our car trips) and I told her "No, it’s a WEBCAST!"
PeggyG -> Hi Cheryl!
tkaminski -> Horizon’s report is pretty powerful
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> hi jan_smith Hi Ben M, welcome!!
Wes Fryer -> @peggyg well, there has been a bit to catch up on, that’s for sure!
jan_smith -> Hi Cheryl, glad to make it in the door!

cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Hello Jackiegerstein
PeggyG -> Hi Jackie!
jackiegerstein -> Hi Cheryl
bobsprankle -> hi all!
Wes Fryer -> rachel says hi!
PeggyG -> Hi to Rachel!! 🙂 Brilliant child!!!
bobsprankle -> hi rachel!
tkaminski -> Horizon’s report gives us lots of ammunition when we advocate for different technologies
jackiegerstein -> Set up a new stream just for the kids – they can meet in the other "room"
bobsprankle -> hey margaret!!
Wes Fryer -> Trivia question: There are 2 technologies that are DIFFERENT in the K-12 Horizon Report, compared to the "regular" Horizon report. What are they?
bobsprankle -> hi james
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> http://www.infinitethinking.org/2009/03/horizonk12-2009.html Here is Lucy’s website.
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> OH, Wes, good question peopleare scrambling to find their other report.
Wes Fryer -> I actually don’t know the answer but want to. I heard Alan Levine and others give the preso at COSN.
alicebarr (seedling) -> Oh Yikes Wes…
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> welcome tonithesisen
Wes Fryer -> http://elemenous.typepad.com/ here is Lucy’s homepage
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> thanks Wes, for LUcy’s
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Hello dmdanker, welcome, hello to Janene
Janene -> Hi all
Margaret -> I finally figure out how to write a message. Thank you for the welcome.
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Hello Shelia, the horizon report K-12 is here.http://www.infinitethinking.org/2009/03/horizonk12-2009.html
sheila -> Thanks and hi!
jackiegerstein -> Semantic web and Geo Everyting
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Yeah Margaret, now there is no stopping you!
Margaret -> This is a bit different from other chat rooms I have been in, hence the slowness of my reponse.
jackiegerstein -> http://wp.nmc.org/horizon-k12-2009/
Wes Fryer -> http://www.nmc.org/pdf/2009-Horizon-Report-K12.pdfhttp://www.nmc.org/pdf/2009-Horizon-Report-K12.pdf
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Yes, Wes!!
Wes Fryer -> oops i got that link twice
alicebarr (seedling) -> Thanks Wes
Wes Fryer -> hi dawn! 🙂
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Hello James, sometimes when I click a link I get bumped out, welcome back.
James_01 -> Thanks, I clicked the Windows Media Player stream and that loaded over top of this page.
LucyGray -> http://horizon.nmc.org/k12/Main_Page
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Hi Kim Caise, and Omni
Omni -> Howdy
PeggyG -> I got bumped too–and wasn’t clicking on any links. Luckily the audio kept going in itunes 🙂
Wes Fryer -> these are the delicious tags for the 2009 horizon report – http://delicious.com/tag/hzk09
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Peggy, gremlins are active.
jan_smith -> http://horizon.nmc.org/k12/Main_Page
bobsprankle -> thanks, wes!
PeggyG -> http://wp.nmc.org/horizon-k12-2009/ Report can be downloaded here
Wes Fryer -> it’s amazing the horizon report folks track 100-200 technologies and reduce them to 12 and then 6. what a task!
Wes Fryer -> hey, some Texans believe in salt!
PeggyG -> it really is incredible and such a valuable resource for tech advocacy!
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Wes, that is a major skill for 21st century learners, synthesize and summarize.
Wes Fryer -> goodness, Lucy, that is a scary tale 🙁
Wes Fryer -> @cheryloakes50 indeed!
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> The list is on the back of the Horizon Report, with all the participants.
PeggyG -> what an amazing story Lucy!! once again the power of social networking and PLNs!
tkaminski -> Lucy, amazing use of Facebook
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Terry, my son facebooked me after an earthquake in Costa Rica that he was oky, I was glad for that.
jan_smith -> is it like grafitti while you speak?
Wes Fryer -> I just participated in my first meeting with a graphic facilitator yesterday! It was very cool. (and effective)
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Oh, this sounds like a new skill!
bobsprankle -> wow… what a coincidence, wes!
tkaminski -> @cheryloakes Why did your son chose Facebook instead of twitter?
Wes Fryer -> http://www.flickr.com/photos/wfryer/3385411197/in/set-72157615902500318/ that’s a flickr pic of one of the graphic facilitator’s murals from yesterday
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> He didn’t have a phone that worked in Costa Rica, he doesn’t use twitter yet he does use facebook.
bobsprankle -> v. cool, wes
jan_smith -> It was done at NorthernVoice, a major blogging conference in Vancouver to the Keynote
jackiegerstein -> http://www.chart-magic.com/index.html
tkaminski -> @cheryloakes Interesting. I use twitter on my computer far more than Facebook
Wes Fryer -> society of graphic facilitators – awesome
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> tkaminski, I facebook my college kids.
jackiegerstein -> I’ve seen it done for keynotes – it is amazing – it is like getting visuals for those of us who auditory processing challenged
Omni -> I miss the days of using subetha edit at confrence for collective notes
tkaminski -> @Wes Your graphic facilitator looks like they were awesome!!! Could they use a tech tool to do the same thing? Then it could be sent to everyone ASAP
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> @jackiegerstein, what a great tool for classrooms.
Wes Fryer -> so how much discussion did you have during and before your voting time, Lucy?
Wes Fryer -> @Omni I loved SubEthaEdit, but didn’t like that it wasn’t cross-platform.
PeggyG -> were there any surprizes for you Lucy?
jackiegerstein -> Didn’t you use the World Cafe, too? http://www.theworldcafe.com/
Wes Fryer -> our graphic facilitator yesterday claimed there are only about 15 people in the US who know how and can do graphic facilitation
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> hello leahlubelle, welcome
PeggyG -> could you do a similar kind of brainstorming chart on http://www.bubbl.us?
sheila -> We did something like that yesterday in class talking about acid rain in class. Used the SmartBoard to print it out.
Wes Fryer -> ooo – thanks for the link to bubbl.us @peggyg!
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Wes, what a great job for some kids and adults.
tkaminski -> @shiela our smartboard use is a good one.
PeggyG -> bubbl.us is an amazing collaborative brainstorming tool
Wes Fryer -> graphic facilitating not only requires great visual communication / arts skills, but also great sythesis and evaluation…
James_01 -> I think I’ve listened for 10 or 15 minutes and I still don’t have any idea what this is about
PeggyG -> discussing the Horizon Report for K-12
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> James, this is a show explaining how the K-12 horizon report came to be. YOu can see the report here http://www.infinitethinking.org/2009/03/horizonk12-2009.html
alicebarr (seedling) -> http://horizon.nmc.org/k12/Main_Page
James_01 -> … Thanks.
jan_smith -> When I look at the list of trends, I think my district is back in at least 5 years. Where to start?
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Hello Melinda, welcome
PeggyG -> did you use Wordle to help you identify the trends?? 🙂
Wes Fryer -> @James_01 Lucy Gray is giving background, she was on the advisory board for the K-12 Horizon Report this year
Wes Fryer -> lost the stream…
Omni -> same here
jan_smith -> sound gone
sheila -> Think we were just muted?
leahlubelle -> I think that happens when the phone rings
Wes Fryer -> the gremlins must have just struck
tkaminski -> @jay_smith I am at the same place you are
Wes Fryer -> they’ll be back…
PeggyG -> Did Alice get a phone call? think that affects her streaming
sheila -> Oh right Peggy!
bobsprankle -> yes… is the audio ok?
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Oh, Alice had a phone call, we have the audio for the podcast, sorry.
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Is the audio back.
PeggyG -> hope Lucy waits for the stream to come back 🙂 don’t want to miss anything
Wes Fryer -> phone call interruptions remind me of dial up modem connections… remember when you had to put a special character string on your modem connection script so it would disable call waiting?! Ah, the old days…
leahlubelle -> I do not hear anything
jan_smith -> Well, I am getting nice blues from my i
jan_smith -> Tunes…
jackiegerstein -> Can you send them this way Jan?
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Okay, we will restart
jan_smith -> I can hum a few bars…
tkaminski -> Have time to check NCAA scores
Wes Fryer -> our meat loaf just finished, anyone want some…. 🙂
PeggyG -> that’s funny Jan! that happened to me once and I didn’t realize the stream had dropped and moved on to my next song in itunes! It was Christmas music 🙂
LucyGray -> Let me see if there are any questions I can answer via text
jan_smith -> Robert Johnson, Kind Hearted Woman Blues
Wes Fryer -> Lucy what was the most surprising thing you learned or encountered (besides your ice story) in serving on the Horizon Board?
tkaminski -> Lucy, was there much arguing about what technologies to put in each category?
jan_smith -> @Lucy, many of the trends seem light years away from my vantage point–any thoughts on affecting change?
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Okay, gang, we will restart
alicebarr (seedling) -> Folks let me restart and e’ll be right back
bobsprankle -> hang on folks…alice will restart the stream
baldfury -> 😕 😕 😕
LucyGray -> Great questions
LucyGray -> Hmmm..
LucyGray -> There’s a way for you all to participate…
LucyGray -> let me get the link
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Lucy, this is a great question from Wes, what did you lear serving on the Horizon board?
jackiegerstein -> We can all meet in Seocnd life 😀
bobsprankle -> woot!
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Oh, good plan Jackie!
jan_smith -> I can run into walls and you can all have a good laugh at my hair
sheila -> Speaking of Woot – It’s awoot-off today!
tkaminski -> I have not played in Second Life yet
LucyGray -> http://www.nmc.org/horizon/participate
PeggyG -> what’s a woot-off?
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> @jan_smith, you can laugh when I sit on the table instead of the chair
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> hello karen Jan
LucyGray -> Hi Karen Jan!
KarenJan -> Hi, Cheryl
sheila -> Refresh if you haven’t already . . . sounds back.
KarenJan -> Hi, Lucy!!!!
Wes Fryer -> yeah, you’re back!
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Welcome gary we have no audio just yet, we are restartnig the stream.
PeggyG -> yeah!!
gary -> Thanks
James_01 -> At least I had time to read the full NMC report
jackiegerstein -> http://www.vwbpe.org/ Great SL confernece this weekend!
PeggyG -> oh rats! phone rang again!
sheila -> @PeggyG – sells electronic type things many during the day.
Wes Fryer -> yes, i’m hearing you again via iTunes and did not have to restart my stream
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> VEry funny James, I am glad you put the time to good use.
jackiegerstein -> LOL James
James_01 -> Oh… it wasn’t a joke, I hadn’t read it yet
jan_smith -> @cheryl I sat on somebodies lap at the Edublogs Awards. :p *)
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> organized meetings are a treat
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> lol
kcaise -> i think lucy got dropped
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Oh, are you hearing Lucy in about 10 seconds? she is talking now
Wes Fryer -> i’m still hearing Lucy
bobsprankle -> sound ok?
sheila -> @jan_smith I can totally relate to sl life.
PeggyG -> yes hearing all
sheila -> yes
kcaise -> she didn’t, i was wrong
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> thanks for the sound check
Wes Fryer -> modified delphi process – excellent, hadn’t heard of this
kcaise -> i heard the skype sound when a call is dropped
James_01 -> None of the report’s content is surprising and none of it adds much to the debate
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> hello Lorna!
jan_smith -> @sheila, there is something very 21 century about being both physically and virtually emabarassed.
PeggyG -> It sounds like a very efficient way to do that!
lorna -> Hi Cherly and all
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> I actually gave it to all my admin and we highlighted it at a workshop today.
sheila -> lol
Wes Fryer -> Rachel says "I think your dog is barking!"
James_01 -> I’m sorry, Cheryl, but that isn’t proof of the report’s value
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Rachel, the dogs come in every show!
alicebarr (seedling) -> Tell RAchel that is Lilly
PeggyG -> that’s the big question–how can we take this information and leverage it! so glad you mentioned this!
KarenJan -> sounds like a very large dog!
Wes Fryer -> yes, we all need to step up our advocacy and lobbying efforts
kcaise -> i am so glad my dog isn’t the only one that wants to talk on streaming shows
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> James, this report for some of us gives the road map and validates what we are doing when someone questions cloud computing
jackiegerstein -> Kinda like preaching to the choir – eh?
PeggyG -> I think Lilly agrees with Lucy!
Wes Fryer -> yes that is right bob
sheila -> Just typing this in an email for my principal!
tkaminski -> @jackiegerstien I totally agree
James_01 -> It does validate what many of you are doing
KarenJan -> our school has Will Richardson coming to speak in two weeks. I recommended that we invite parents and students
Wes Fryer -> @james_01 it validates many of the trends we hear about, in terms of others seeing them as very relevant / important…
James_01 -> Fortunately or unfortunately depending on perspective
PeggyG -> I like the emphasis on value of real life experiences-many teachers think that means it has to be face to face but can be greatly enriched with technology
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> oh, great Karen!
alicebarr (seedling) -> @KarenJan Great idea
KarenJan -> we’ll see what happens, i’m on the school board and suggested it at our meeting Monday night
tkaminski -> @KarenJan Definitely invite parents. When parents start demanding things change seems to happen faster
jan_smith -> @james what’s your perspective?
KarenJan -> we talk about the need to include parents in understanding the paradigm shift
lorna -> @KarenJan – where are you located?
Wes Fryer -> yes, Google is blocked in some Oklahoma and Texas schools I’ve been in today. Amazing.
jan_smith -> @KarenJan We still need to include many teachers in the paradigm shift–
PeggyG -> Will CoSN be doing a live webinar on the K12 report? It would be great to have an archived version to share with admins, teachers and boards!
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Google blocked seems foreign
jan_smith -> Many have hands on ears and eyes closed.
Wes Fryer -> I see 5 primary reasons why schools and school leaders are blocking web 2.0 sites: bandwidth, CIPA, FERPA, control issues, liability concerns. Are there other broad reasons I’m missing?
KarenJan -> @jan – I have to say, there’s been some amazing things happening in my district
James_01 -> Jan, it would be impolite to hijack this party, so maybe some other time
PeggyG -> Karen Henke did a great CoSN webinar a couple of months ago but it was before this report came out
tkaminski -> @Wes Google is blocked!!!!Why?
leeanne -> I wonder if the identification of filtering as a critical challenge will mean changes start taking place?
jan_smith -> @Wes laziness.
PeggyG -> @Wes FEAR!
James_01 -> Wes, don’t forget the possibility that there might be more effective ways to educate
Wes Fryer -> @tkaminski LIke Lucy is saying, some districts block google to try and keep out the bad stuff
James_01 -> Or at least that the administrators think there are more effective ways
Wes Fryer -> @PeggyG yes, fear definitely IS a big reason that needs to be on that list
jan_smith -> @james, this is a venue for dialogue, no?
tkaminski -> @Wes We need to educate the students on appropriate use.
Wes Fryer -> @James_01 do you mean other, non-digital ways to educate?
Wes Fryer -> @tkaminski yes, I totally agree
James_01 -> Wes, I mean online and offline, yes
PeggyG -> https://admin.acrobat.com/_a839225796/p36201637/ Karen’s earlier presentation on Long Tail Learner: How Technology Transforms Learning
Wes Fryer -> @James_01 good point. That is why I think a focus on blended learning is most appropriate, rather than just being on a "digital learning" bandwagon. There are lots of great analog ways to learn too.
Wes Fryer -> I love that, "Long Tail Learner"
James_01 -> Jan, it is in theory. Not in practice. Right now we have a leader telling us that the main reason a certain technology isn’t adopted is because the opponents are clearly ignorant and afraid
PeggyG -> Yes Wes. It was an outstanding presentation!
alicebarr (seedling) -> Tag hzk09
Wes Fryer -> @James_01 who is the leader you’re referring to?
James_01 -> You, Wes – I was summarizing what you just said
Wes Fryer -> ah
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Hello Jeff
James_01 -> You’re talking about how deathly afraid school administrators are as if it isn’t even possible that there is a legitimate argument that there is a better use of time or resources
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Hello james sigler!
James Sigler -> Hi everybody
WickedDecentJeff -> Hey Cheryl, can’t stay long but I’m here for a few
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> glad you are here
Wes Fryer -> I think there is more than ignorance and fear at play. I agree with Virginia Postrel’s thesis in her 1989 book, "The Future and Its Enemies." Generally we see "statists" and "dynamists" when it comes to change. Many people in our communities are conservative statists that resist many changes because they don’t want their cheese moved.
James Sigler -> Been listening to stream and finally got chat to work 🙂
James_01 -> I didn’t realize I was at a business or motivational seminar
alicebarr (seedling) -> Hey WickedDecent!
PeggyG -> @James-you are correct that technology isn’t the best way for everything but it provides some important options
James_01 -> I could have stayed at home and read Executive Book Summaries
WickedDecentJeff -> Hey Alice!
Wes Fryer -> @James_01 ?
jan_smith -> Trolls?
James_01 -> Peggy, it does provide some important options and we need to talk about those when they come up. We just need to be fair to all sides instead of dismissing them
bobsprankle -> http://www.macworld.com/article/139646/onlive.html
James_01 -> I think that most people who aren’t convinced by web 2.0 tools just want what is best for their classrooms or districts and they aren’t convinced yet
PeggyG -> @James-that would be an important thing to contribute to the conversation on the wiki that Lucy mentioned for the K12 Horizon Report
James_01 -> I don’t like to see them painted as being stupid or afraid of change when most of the time they are just trying to do their jobs well
Wes Fryer -> @James_01 you might be right
James_01 -> I think it is rude and wrongheaded
James_01 -> The real problem being that it is wrongheaded because it doesn’t address the problem in the first place
PeggyG -> schools can no longer afford software based applications and have to look to open source options
tkaminski -> @James_01 Maybe web 2.0 can help those poeple do their job even better
jackiegerstein -> or tricle up – that’s my issue
gary -> Not all parts of the world have the same fear: http://www.guardian.co.uk/education/2009/mar/25/primary-schools-twitter-curriculum
Wes Fryer -> @James_01 being ignorant about a new technology or potential is very different from "being stupid"
leeanne -> In the cloud can still be single-sign on and link several packages… moodle & google apps
James Sigler -> It’s not just about the web 2.0 tools. It must be about the pedagogy behind it.
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> thanks leeanne for that comment
Wes Fryer -> What took you to Singapore, Lucy?
Wes Fryer -> Was that an ADE trip?
James_01 -> tkaminski, it is possible and I like to figure out whether a new tool is valuable. So we weigh the merits and decide. We don’t assume people are afraid and so selfish that they don’t want any change
leeanne -> Tim Holt talks about how we "sell" technology http://web20andbeyond.wordpress.com/2009/03/24/selling-the-product-tim-holt-guest-blogger
LucyGray -> Yes, I helped run the institute for the new class of ADEs
tkaminski -> @James_01
tkaminski -> I agree
LucyGray -> It was just me going over there, Wes
James_01 -> tkaminski, I agree with you too. 🙂
Wes Fryer -> @LucyGray very cool! It is often so eye opening to get international perspectives on these issues
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> welcome Maureen, we are in the middle of the Horizon k-12 report with Lucy Gray.
leeanne -> when we live overseas we need to use these tools to connect to our main learning base.
James_01 -> Oh, I’m hearing more on fear
tkaminski -> However, in my experience, lots of people say they are doing a really good job and do not explore how tech might help them do their job better
WickedDecentJeff -> There is a fear of so many things in education…fear of getting sued, fear of the tech not working, fear of not being supported by administration…
James_01 -> tkaminski, that is an issue of job performance and professional development. Those teachers aren’t as effective as they could be and their PD/admin leaders should develop that with them.
Maureen -> Hi Cheryl- sorry so late, got caught up in what I was doing… have to listen to the podcast to catch up later
James Sigler -> Why did Singapore buy in and many of our decision makers do not?
jackiegerstein -> Another report this week Technology COunts 2009 http://www.edweek.org/ew/toc/2009/03/26/index.html
James_01 -> I had no idea how terrified I was of everything
WickedDecentJeff -> If you try to push for change, those are the excuses/barriers you come up against
PeggyG -> Disrupting Class is a very thought-provoking, powerful book for me.
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> hello cha424, welcome, we are near the end of our conversation about the Horizon K-12 project /report
leeanne -> Singapore has a great vision for their learning (trying to find link)
jackiegerstein -> There are NO workforce environments without tech – it has to be used in the school
tkaminski -> I hope we follow the vision of "Disrupting CLass"
James_01 -> Jan, we can talk about your "trolls" message after the session if you’d like.
baldfury -> who wrote disrupting class?
leahlubelle -> hey bob, what is that diabetes app called?
bobsprankle -> Clayton Christensen
PeggyG -> Michael Horn
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> clay christenson, michael horne and
leeanne -> Link for Singapore education plan http://www.moe.gov.sg/edumall/mp2/mp2.htm
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> thanks leeanne
jackiegerstein -> http://disruptingclass.mhprofessional.com/apps/ab/
cha424 -> just got homew from work
jan_smith -> James, I am interested in your ideas. I am just uncomfortable with the tone.
James_01 -> Here is the link to Clayton Christianson’s site: http://disruptingclass.mhprofessional.com/apps/ab/
Maureen -> Still reading Disrupting Class, and in the middle of The Element…too many good books and ideas to explore.
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Maureen and Jackiegerstein, there is a ning group at SEEDLINGS to discuss Disrupting Class
PeggyG -> also Curtis Johnson
Wes Fryer -> @James_01 what is your twitter or blog address? I’d like to read more of your views on these issues, particularly as they apply to helping overcome obstacles
James_01 -> I’m sorry that I caused discomfort, maybe we can talk frankly another time – goodbye.
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> thanks Peggy.
leeanne -> K-12 report helps to complete the circle for use of tech in education. Makes it a tool for learning and links things together for me
Maureen -> Thx Cheryl… I’ll check it out
tkaminski -> I like being called a geek!!!
PeggyG -> http://bitbybitseedlings.ning.com/group/booktalkdisruptingclass
baldfury -> get your geek on!
WickedDecentJeff -> iTunes store was blocked in my district until this year
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Peggy, thanks for helping out with the background!!!
PeggyG -> any time! just happened to have that open in my tabs 🙂
WickedDecentJeff -> Only after my administrator tried to show iTunes U and realized it was blocked….
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Jeff, t hat is amazing, so they couldn’t listen to Wicked Decent Learning.
WickedDecentJeff -> I know, hard to believe huh?
WickedDecentJeff -> Try teaching a class on podcasting, without a podcatcher
tkaminski -> I have sent the Horizon report to my superintendent to get him thimking about where our district needs to head with technology
PeggyG -> Wes did a recent podcast on helping admins and IT directors understand the value of different tools and the importance of talking together and not just making assumptions
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> To our listeners, the podcast and chat will be available at edtechtalk.com and bobsprankle.com by tomorrow.
leeanne -> Thanks for Prof Dev idea – we have 2 days coming up for PD and this would make a great starter for staff!
PeggyG -> I hope CoSN will do a webinar on this!
tkaminski -> I hope some one gets Horizon report on Obama’s radar
cha424 -> where can i read the horizon report?
PeggyG -> I thought Obama’s edtech guru was a very young guy 🙂
alicebarr (seedling) -> @leeanne Small groups around different parts
James Sigler -> They don’t even have an ed guru for DOE 😛
jackiegerstein -> http://www.charlierose.com/view/interview/10131
PeggyG -> advisor I think
tkaminski -> I think ALice, Bob and Cheryl should be Ed tech advisors for Obama
WickedDecentJeff -> I second that
PeggyG -> http://wp.nmc.org/horizon-k12-2009/
Wes Fryer -> Lucy, did the Horizon board folks have suggestions for advocacy
James Sigler -> They have my vote
bobsprankle -> LOL
LucyGray -> http://www.youtube.com/edu
jackiegerstein -> Conversation with Eric Schmidt – it was great! http://www.charlierose.com/view/interview/10131
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> thanks terry, that would be fun
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> http://www.uticked.com/

baldfury -> I thought I saw a grade k-2 youtube on twitter earlier this wk?
alicebarr (seedling) -> http://todaysmeet.com/
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> this is a quick thursday hour
Maureen -> When I saw that in your tweet earlier I was hoping it would be a good replacement for teachertube…not just another venue like academic earth. But it’s good anyway.
LucyGray -> Did you see the participate link, Wes?
LucyGray -> http://www.nmc.org/horizon/participate
cheryloakes50~seedlings -> Thanks for joining us tonight, thanks to Lucy
gary -> Good luck with the vote in Texas tomorrow – let us hope science and reason prevail.
