20:53Jeff: Roger that. Will join hangout in two mins.
20:56Chad: Howdy, Folks –
20:58Jeff: Hello Chad
21:00Andrea Z: It's been a while since I've been on the Ed Tech Talk website instead of Hangouts: Etherpad replaced the chat? How cool!

21:41monika: yes – i am too – so am happy to stay here
21:42Gail Desler: Hello Paul Oh:-)
21:42Andrea Z: I am alone with the kids and one is having trouble sleeping. So I'm going to hang out here, too since I keep having to pop out.
21:42paul oh: hey Gail!
21:42paul oh: hi Andrea!
21:42paul oh: Gail, i just jumped off – you should join the hangout

21:44Chad: I have crazy pinging going on – apologies if I sound disjointed.
21:44monika: is there a cake with 300 candles that i missed
21:45Gail Desler: No, I'm on my old laptop, which seems to always poop out on Google Hangout
21:45Andrea Z: Oh I love Kelsey! So glad she's here.
21:46Gail Desler: String games was a blast
21:47Chad: Just gonna watch & chat – audio and video seem to be competing with one another.
21:47Chad: Congratulations, again, to the TTT crew!
21:48Gail Desler: One of the benefits of TTT are the awesome ideas for taking student voices beyond the walls of the classroom
21:48monika: who's 3 in from the left
21:49paul oh: that's fred haas
21:50monika: k. thanks.
21:51Gail Desler: iPads at high school level – any limitations?
21:53paul oh: the critical element to me, Gail, is if the ipads are used as tools of creation as well as tools of consumption
21:53Gail Desler: Absolutely, Paul. But I want an iPad;-)
21:53monika: a lot of people geeked out on that
21:54paul oh: by the way, i meant to say when i was in the hangout that paul a. is one of my heroes
21:54Gail Desler: @ monka "that"?
21:54paul oh: i still remember watching one of his first v-casts which he shot with a headcam during one of his runs
21:55Gail Desler: Paul is one of my heroes too – and a major mentor
21:55paul oh: it was brilliant/crazy, and pushed boundaries, as usual with paul a.
21:55monika: i think people liked the augmented reality @Gail
21:56Gail Desler: brilliant/crazy – good summary
21:56Gail Desler: Kelsey, having a student voice in TTT is wonderful
21:56Andrea Z: BTR: HUGE fan here 🙂
21:57Gail Desler: Kelsey, how the heck are doing that – all the faces?
21:58Andrea Z: @Gail: it's part of Google hangouts. It's an app
21:59Gail Desler: Oh that's wild – a total selling point for Google hangouts!
21:59monika: that's what i keep hearing about Paul
21:59Andrea Z: I am known for donning them inappropriately during VERY IMPORTANT meetings. I can't stop myself.
21:59paul oh: @andrea – i can only imagine 🙂
22:00monika: faith with the audience
22:00Gail Desler: What an awesome role model your are, Andreaa
22:00monika: oooh.. yes to those
22:00Andrea Z: One can't take oneself too seriously, right?
22:02Valerie Burton: @Chris Good point. Paul thinks out loud and takes others on his journey
22:02Gail Desler: Hi Valerie
22:02Valerie Burton: Hey all.
