Many of us (at least in the Northern Hemisphere), have already returned or will soon return to school. Our summer weeks of reflecting, learning, dreaming, planning, scheming are behind us. Perhaps it’s useful to remember what our conversations from a few weeks back sounded like.
On this podcast, recorded a few weeks ago, Paul Allison and Susan Ettenheim are joined by three other teachers who were just trying to enjoy their summer break:
- Allice Barr, a technology integrator at Yarmouth High School, Maine
- George Mayo, a middle school teacher and biker from Silver Spring, Maryland
- Margare Fiore, an English Teacher with the New School and a member with the New York City Wriitng Project
One of the projects we’ve been working on this summer — and which we discuss in this podcast — is a new Drupal site for http://youthvoices.net. We are planning to launch the new site on our webcast this week.
We invite you to help us re-launch http://youthvoices.net on Wednesday, August 27, 2008. Join us, right here at EdTechTalk at 9:00pm Eastern / 6:00pm Pacific USA Wednesdays / 01:00 UTC Thursdays World Times.

21:15:40 SusanEttenheim: we are "relaunching" it this fall
21:15:52 nhill: Hi..sorry..was multi-tasking…Nicole Hill…7th grade communications teacher in PA
21:16:10 chriss: I’m just learning. Is it for middle school?
21:16:11 SusanEttenheim: welcome nicole!
21:16:12 Scott Shelhart: I’m signed up, but I forget to check in. An email notification would help.
21:16:43 baker: Hi I am an anatomy teacher in PA
21:16:50 lparisi: Welcome back, Adina
21:16:50 SusanEttenheim: we’re hoping to connect a lot of students this fall – across the curriculums
21:17:04 adinasullivan: Thanks….FF# hiccuped
21:17:06 lparisi: Susan, I would love to hear more
21:17:09 SusanEttenheim: wow baker – what age group?
21:17:23 gnoack: gotta go.
21:17:23 SusanEttenheim: welcome back adina
21:17:27 baker: 11 and 12th grades
21:17:58 JeffP: I don’t know youthvoices yet – I just learned about TTT today, so eventually I’ll check it out. I should warn – I’m a total Web 2.0 neophyte, but learned a lot this summer at the Capital Area Writing Project in NC.
21:18:23 lparisi: You’re in the right place, Jeff. This is a great place to learn.
21:18:47 George: J.R.’s new Hip-Hop album: http://www.mrmayo.org/?p=210
21:19:53 George: or even if the content doesn’t overlap, it’s still a great idea to give students the chance to share their work.
21:19:56 nhill: What grade levels do you do digital photography? I teach it with 7th grade
21:20:08 JeffP: iparisi – The tech liason for our summer institute would be so proud of me for actually venturing out and doing this. Can’t wait to let her know.
21:20:17 SusanEttenheim: jeff you are welcome!
21:20:21 alicebarr: @nhill we teach it at grades 7 – 12
21:20:49 SusanEttenheim: cool nhill! I will be with 10th grade this fall
21:20:53 lparisi: It is difficult to get people started, Jeff. But we usually find it is rather addicting. Keep coming back.
21:21:05 lparisi: Did you see the calendar? There are shows all week.
21:21:24 Maureen/bcdtech: HOw about a ning?
21:21:37 SusanEttenheim: hi nedra welcome! please introduce yourself – what and where do you teach?
21:21:52 paulallison: We can do much more with Drupal than with ning.
21:21:59 JeffP: I don’t think I noticed that yet – just noticed the archives of this particular webcast.
21:22:08 SusanEttenheim: maureen this will accomplish some of the same things
21:22:13 Maureen/bcdtech: Drupal is like moodle? I really don’t know that much about drupal
21:22:18 SusanEttenheim: hi scott welcome
21:22:24 SusanEttenheim: what and where do you teach?
21:22:32 Scott Shelhart1: hi.. there is only one of me. Chat is goofy tonite
21:22:44 Nedra: Hi, I teach K-5 computer class in utica, ny
21:22:46 Scott Shelhart1: im showing up twice
21:22:55 lparisi: Jeff, after the show, click on edtechtalk. It will bring you to the front page where there are more archives and a schedule.
21:23:03 SusanEttenheim: yes drupal is a content management system
21:23:06 JeffP: Thanks!
21:23:12 Maureen/bcdtech: @scott, did you leave and come back in? Sometimes it does that
21:23:31 SusanEttenheim: it will be a dynamic space online where teachers and students can share work
21:23:38 bobcaro: [Q for speakers] When student work is posted on the ‘net, are student pseudonyms necessary?
21:23:46 SusanEttenheim: hi colleen welcome!
21:23:53 colleenk: Hi Susan!
21:23:59 Maureen/bcdtech: @susan- how will it be structured? Open? Closed?
21:24:04 bobcaro: -that question was for the speakers…
21:24:10 SusanEttenheim: please introduce yourself – where and what do you teach?
21:24:18 Maureen/bcdtech: Hi Colleen!
21:24:20 colleenk: @Maureen Long time no see 🙂
21:24:22 Scott Shelhart1: it kicked me out. I restarted FF, but I’m still here twice.
21:24:40 fhaas: My students have definitely commented how much more care they take, knowing that what they write will be online and available for many others to read.
21:24:41 Scott Shelhart1: oh – it’s better know
21:24:46 Maureen/bcdtech: @colleen- so nice to be home :0)
21:25:32 colleenk: @maureen I hear you – enjoyed it but glad to be home.
21:25:37 lparisi: Hi Colleen
21:26:02 SusanEttenheim: welcome back baker
21:26:12 baker: THanks some glitches on my end
21:26:16 colleenk: @lparisi Hi – I’m here because of your Plurk.
21:26:25 lparisi: Glad you saw it. 🙂
21:28:13 SusanEttenheim: bobcaro what would work for you?
21:28:22 SusanEttenheim: what grades and where do you teach again?
21:28:35 chriss: good conversation, but I must go. see you all again…
21:28:50 SusanEttenheim: watch for the podcast chriss!
21:28:54 bobcaro: I have plenty of space to post, I just need to know if student pseudonyms are necessary, and how that would be implemented.
21:28:58 chriss: thx
21:28:59 SusanEttenheim: welcome kennesab
21:29:30 bobcaro: I teach 6th thru 8th in a class of 24 computers – technology
21:29:48 SusanEttenheim: bobcaro we have in the past said no last names but only real names – no fake names
21:30:02 bobcaro: …but the rest of the district uses comps for research only, not collaboration
21:30:20 SusanEttenheim: what state are you bob?
21:30:28 SusanEttenheim: in….
21:30:46 bobcaro: this will sound silly, but how do you deal with the 15 Ashley’s – Ashley P. and Ashley R?
21:30:49 Scott Shelhart1: using real names helps teach digital citizenship..
21:30:54 bobcaro: Texas
21:30:57 SusanEttenheim: not at all bob
21:30:58 one handed bill: yes i’m here…
21:31:20 bobcaro: @scott – I agree, but a parent would freak out real quick
21:31:30 lparisi: What age is this for Susan. There is a law (maybe just NYS) that 13 and under must use pseudonyms
21:31:31 nhill: I have had that problem bob..sometimes middle initial works
21:31:54 SusanEttenheim: we use a school name too bob so it would be ashley p at ERHS, NYC for someone at my school
21:32:07 Maureen/bcdtech: I like using categories and tags- both are good skills to have. Could the tags be pre-defined?
21:32:13 bobcaro: I often joke that I’m "the tip of the spear" – I’m the only person from my district to attend the NECC in San Antonio
21:32:25 baker: we use last name first initial
21:32:27 SusanEttenheim: we are thinking that parent approval might be needed for under 13
21:32:33 SusanEttenheim: welcome kmulford
21:32:41 SusanEttenheim: where and what do you teach?
21:33:02 SusanEttenheim: that’s too much identity for us …
21:33:10 Scott Shelhart1: as long as its a walled garden, I don’t see a problem with using first names.
21:33:15 SusanEttenheim: so we use first name and school
21:33:17 kmulford: Thanks, still trying to get the audio…
21:33:24 kmulford: Got it.
21:33:37 SusanEttenheim: great! where and what do you teach?
21:33:49 bobcaro: …thanks, my courage is increasing…
21:33:53 adinasullivan: Bob, many of us are in that position as only one in school/district to reach out for new edtech learning
21:34:08 kmulford: I am an Engaged Learning Specialist at the middle school level in the Chicago suburbs.
21:34:09 SusanEttenheim: that’s exactly why this forum is so important
21:34:14 lparisi: Susan, can we take part next year (this year)?
21:34:26 bobcaro: I don’t even watch tv anymore – I’m following Twitter links and listening to edTechTalk podcasts 24/7
21:34:27 lparisi: Or are we too young?
21:34:28 SusanEttenheim: yes lisa
21:34:44 SusanEttenheim: up to you lisa
21:34:47 nhill: mee too bob
21:34:58 kmulford: @bobcaro I haven’t seen TV in months…
21:35:02 SusanEttenheim: the more students in, the more fun it will be for everyone
21:35:04 lparisi: How do we join in?
21:35:14 SusanEttenheim: hi sam welcome
21:35:20 SusanEttenheim: where and what do you teach?
21:35:21 kmulford: Downloading podcasts for my commute…
21:35:30 nhill: my problem is that I only have my students for 12 week rotations
21:36:06 SusanEttenheim: hi bud welcome!
21:36:12 SusanEttenheim: please introduce yourself
21:36:17 SusanEttenheim: hi kgustin welcome
21:36:18 Maureen/bcdtech: How do you plan to deal with the multitude of spaces that kids are sent to work in? I remember Vicki Davis saying something about asking the kids to blog here, blog there and getting some negative feedback from the kids. The drupal will not be the only place your students go.
21:36:21 fhaas: kmulford – just out of curiosity which Chicago suburb? I grew up there before heading out East
21:36:42 lparisi: Good question Maureen.
21:36:43 Bud: Hi, Susan.
21:36:46 kmulford: Burr Ridge/ WIllowbrook
21:36:53 JeffP: Something my Writing Project group have time to experiment with was Twitter or Youth Twitter. The wiki they created for us has some info. but I haven’t read it yet. Can anyone give me a quick rundown of how these are being used?
21:37:12 kmulford: New position for me.. Gower, a tiny district
21:37:34 JeffP: That is, [i]didn’t[/i] have time to experiment with.
21:37:58 Bud: Good question – if I write in space A, can you use Drupal to bring me to space B?
21:38:10 SusanEttenheim: exactly bud
21:38:12 kennesab: I work with PreK-5th grade students and am interested in Youth Twitter. But am concerned with privacy as no information is to be gathered on kids under 13–and all of mine are.
21:38:34 kennesab: That’s a federal law.
21:38:34 SusanEttenheim: we’d like to see work flow into it but with the idea that those flowing work in would also participate and comment to other work.
21:39:05 kmulford: Met today with my principal, asst super, elem counterpart… heard about "conservative" school board with Chicago educ atty’s… district wants to "break down walls" but board and conservative community get int the way…
21:39:11 bobcaro: @kennesab – I’m in the same boat – most of my students are 6th graders
21:39:26 SusanEttenheim: yes kennesab – I’m high school and we do have a lot of high school people but we want everyone to consider how it works for all ages.
21:39:32 lparisi: Yes, me too. I have 10 year olds.
21:40:06 bobcaro: @lparisi – do you send home a permission form of some kind?
21:40:06 kmulford: Looking to do some "building of futures" and basing it all on digital presence NOW… looks like there are some roadblocks on the horizon…
21:40:25 lparisi: At the beginning of the year..we get a general…online permission slip
21:40:37 lparisi: Kids blog, podcast, video, pics
21:40:52 fhaas: Sending the RSS feeds into a central location seems like a really solid choice.
21:41:19 lparisi: Is there a way to create the space with age group spaces?
21:41:23 kmulford: I think I need a new online permisiion form to be able to do what I want… the stadard district AUP is not gonna cut it…
21:41:38 fhaas: It sounds like the most flexible solution.
21:41:47 adinasullivan: our district AUP falls far short as well
21:41:48 lparisi: I send out my own…district just asks for picture permission.
21:42:00 Maureen/bcdtech: So, if various age groups come into this- are the older kids like mentors? Is everyone on equal footing?
21:42:25 nhill: how does youth twitter work? Can all students access it?
21:42:35 SusanEttenheim: yes, nhill
21:42:46 kmulford: Youth Twitter is NOT the same as our twitter. All Tweets are visible to EVERYONE! I couldn’t get my child’s tweets to be viewed only by his "friends"…
21:43:02 Maureen/bcdtech: I teach 6-9th grade as well as gr 1-3… there are topics that just plain aren’t appropriate for the different age groups etc.
21:43:07 SusanEttenheim: youth twitter is actually a wordpress theme
21:43:14 kmulford: Several of us worked at it for a long time…
21:43:22 kgustin: can you protect tweets on youth twitter like our twitter?
21:44:02 kmulford: http://kmulford.edublogs.org/2008/05/04/twitter-eight/
21:44:03 Maureen/bcdtech: Can drupal do groups like moodle does? Some parts can be invisble
21:44:19 Bud: Protecting youth twitter tweets is a really bad idea.
21:44:50 lparisi: Why, Bud?
21:44:55 Maureen/bcdtech: Isn’t that kind of grouping only available to admin? Not to user? Or is it different from the moodle grouping that I am thinking of.
21:44:57 SusanEttenheim: we’re not exactly sure either how youth twitter should/will fit into youthvoices
21:44:58 kgustin: @bud why is that?
21:45:10 Bud: Because it sends the wrong message, I think.
21:45:28 Bud: That your "public" voice is "private."
21:45:36 Bud: Grown ups can’t handle that.
21:45:39 lparisi: Ahhhh…
21:45:46 Bud: why would we expect students to be able to.
21:46:08 lparisi: So two messages given..one, everything you do online is public and two, this one thing is private
21:46:09 kgustin: i can see your point
21:46:20 lparisi: What if the students didn’t know it was private?
21:46:28 Bud: (Ever see a picture of a twitter stream where some of the tweets were "private?")
21:46:40 Bud: @Lisa – Why would you not tell a student the audience for their writing?
21:47:13 lparisi: So you can keep it somewhat safe (remember I work with 10 year olds) but still have an audience
21:47:40 lparisi: I do teach them that everything online is public
21:47:44 Bud: @lisa – But that’s being dishonest with your kids, isn’t it?
21:47:54 lparisi: That even when they think it is private, it is not.
21:48:03 lparisi: That’s how we teach about online work.
21:48:05 SusanEttenheim: friendfeed.com/rooms/ttt
21:48:45 lparisi: Not dishonest, Bud. Just, explain that the audience is really mostly kids but…
21:48:53 lparisi: That’s how we talk about class blogmeister
21:49:18 lparisi: Mostly kids and their teachers but you never know who is out there watching and reading.
21:49:20 bobcaro: I like Bud’s point, since students spend much more time online at home (MySpace, Facebook, etc) than at school.
21:49:30 lparisi: Although we don’t say it quite so sinisterly.
21:49:37 lparisi: Is that a word?
21:49:40 peteach11: youthnoise.com
21:49:53 Bud: Huh. Interesting. But you never know is more often a good thing. Helps us stay on our toes.
21:50:14 bobcaro: They need to think about "public" writing more at home, when they think they are alone in their rooms, but they’re typing something that the whole world can see.
21:50:33 lparisi: That’s the point…they often think they can write for kids otherwise.
21:50:36 Maureen/bcdtech: I like the categories on youthnoise
21:50:39 lparisi: Using slang, etc.
21:50:47 Bud: @Bob – Yes. And How to be deliberate about their limited privacy.
21:51:11 Maureen/bcdtech: Have your own little stumblupon
21:51:30 Bud: Why can’t kids write for kids? We need to be teaching code switching. (sorry – I know you’re not saying otherwise.)
21:51:32 SusanEttenheim: ahh maureen that’s just the feedback we’re wondering about – what do you like or not like about those categories?
21:52:31 bobcaro: @Bud – we should insist that they write for each other – when they write just for a grade, it’s not as good writing
21:52:55 lparisi: When kids write for kids, they use texting terms, slang, etc. We allow that for their personal blog entries but not for assignments. They do need to learn that the audience counts.
21:52:56 Maureen/bcdtech: I like the channels- they are broad enough/narrow enough to pique your interest. I also liked the category stuff at the bottom- want to read a blog, get involved, etc…
21:52:57 bobcaro: "not as good writing"? that wasn’t very good wither, haha
21:53:41 adinasullivan: Bob – back chats don’t count…I hope
21:54:11 lparisi: But, Bob, don’t you think audience counts? If you are writing to a senator, then you must write differently than writing to a friend.
21:54:35 Bud: @Lisa – Kids count, too. Sometimes, we should evaluate writing for its effect on other peers.
21:54:44 adinasullivan: Part of writing IS knowing your audience
21:54:59 bobcaro: Absolutely, I just meant that many eyes make a writer more conscious of quality
21:55:21 Maureen/bcdtech: Could you feature a photo/poem, etc? And ask kids to comment- or do something around a feature?
21:55:28 lparisi: Oh yes, Bob. Even my 10 year olds get that they work harder when things are posted.
21:55:34 bobcaro: If it’s just for a grade, a 70% is good enough for most. 70% writing quality would be pretty bad.
21:56:19 Bud: No – not programming. Code switching ala bell hooks.
21:56:26 kgustin: I evaluate my kids without them knowing they are being evaluated – it is more to drive my future teaching than for grades
21:56:51 fhaas: Creating the categories from the tags is a lot like a found path, which seems pretty authentic and rooted in kids likes.
21:57:07 SusanEttenheim: yes fhaas
21:57:15 bobcaro: OK, Bud, you’ve got me having to google your terms again… it’s all good, tho
21:57:28 SusanEttenheim: could you see your English students participating here?
21:57:30 lparisi: Or the elementary class could join in a conversation with the high schoolers about Darfur.
21:57:31 nhill: I am always concerned with my special ed students…writing is so hard for them sometimes and posting online draws attention to their difficulty.
21:57:47 lparisi: @nhill All our students post.
21:57:51 Maureen/bcdtech: @nhill- have them do padcasts
21:57:53 lparisi: Classified or not
21:58:00 lparisi: Podcasts are great.
21:58:02 Maureen/bcdtech: podcasts
21:58:05 lparisi: So is recording first
21:58:08 SusanEttenheim: nhill – you could scan your drawings and post those and talk about responding to them
21:58:09 nhill: all of mine do too…all podcast as well
21:58:31 fhaas: Yes, actually I have been kind of following a lot of the you guys have been doing for the last year and really am eager to start getting involved.
21:59:10 lparisi: Have to head out. Thank you so much for this great conversation.
21:59:20 adinasullivan: Bye Lisa
21:59:30 SusanEttenheim: thanks for coming lisa!
21:59:31 kgustin: the younger kids sometimes come up with great innovations on what the older kids are doing
21:59:34 Maureen/bcdtech: How are we going to find out more about this?
21:59:35 lparisi: Susan, can we talk before school starts to see if my class can join in?
21:59:37 bobcaro: bye lisa – hope yer kitty is happy
21:59:53 lparisi: Thanks, Bob. He is destroying the house right now.
21:59:53 SusanEttenheim: absolutely! keep in touch!
22:00:23 lparisi: Bye. And Bob and Bud, thanks for the brain stretch. 🙂
22:00:50 peteach11: what about if the older students spoke to younger students about real life situations….it would be mentoring and teaching them and i think both the younger and older students will benefit form it
22:01:09 SusanEttenheim: hi paul welcome!
22:01:44 adinasullivan: @peteach – that can work, but has to monitored carefully. Older ones don’t always know what is appropriate with younger ones
22:01:56 Maureen/bcdtech: Thank you for sharing all of your ideas, sounds like a great project is well on its way.
22:02:03 JeffP: Bye, everyone! Enjoyed my first time here.
