21:08:43 Chris Sloan: got it

21:08:50 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr): thats what I said tll

21:08:53 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr): too

21:13:08 Noble Kelly: so how come I don’t get onto the main video screen when I talk πŸ™

21:16:10 Paul Allison: You don’t see yourself

21:16:11 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr): click on one small frame on the right, click it again and the border turns blue… then the person speaking sill be on your large screen.

21:29:05 Paul Allison: Zac, can you talk about how your experiences with EBB impacted on your classroom?

21:31:00 Paul Allison: Ian, I’m interested in how your experiences with EBB hav impacted on your classroom in the US too.

21:34:15 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr): Computer lab = testing lab. We take our kids to the lab twice a week, but it is almost all testing.

21:34:54 Ian: Paul, great question – one of the most immediate impacts in my classroom (in Canada) is to reinforce collaborative learning strategies and differentated instruction.

21:52:25 Paul Allison: So… Maybe Nobel is addressing this right now, but I’m wondering if the “progressive” notions that many of us would promote are appreciated by the teachers you have worked with in Kenya and South Africa.

22:02:04 Paul Allison: I’m wondering where the line is between management and guidance. Students don’t come to us as blank slates. They have already been managed by the media… by facebook… by the Internet… and there is a lot of this that needs to be unlearned. So we need spaces where they can unlearn from these spaces. It’s not only schools that trap our students’ minds and expressions.

22:04:23 Paul Allison: Storytelling is important!

22:04:57 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr): Storytelling was / is the original literacy

22:09:10 Paul Allison: Noble I want to give you a last word…

22:09:27 Noble Kelly: okay I better think of one πŸ˜‰

22:11:24 Ian: Thanks everyone!!

22:11:35 Noble Kelly: Thanks all!

22:11:43 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr): Yes, Thanks all. Good show.

22:11:43 Zac: Peace out, cub scouts.

22:13:05 Noble Kelly: thanks for organizing Paul & Monika
