21:18:53 sendkathy -> I was impressed
21:19:08 Vicki Davis -> Yes, I blushed when Will talked about the project — he contributed video as did Steve Hargadon and David Warlick.
21:19:21 sendkathy -> that was very cool
21:19:26 Vicki Davis -> That is when the students really began to understand the global audience.
21:19:40 sendkathy -> truly
21:19:44 charbeck -> For those of you needing to find a blogging topic watch this video and then bog away http://makeitinteresting.blogspot.com/2007/02/why-20-is-so-important.html

21:23:24 Vicki Davis -> Vinnie did you post our chat? Also, will you post your parent training course — EVERYONE in here needs to go look at it and we need to have you on the show to talk about it. (We’ll talk later).
21:23:37 Vinnie -> Central Standard Time, I guess I am hoping for daylight savings
21:23:42 JenniferW -> ahhh

21:23:57 Durff -> I will, I think

21:25:47 Cheri T -> Vicki, I’ve wondered how that happens. do you rss your delicious to your blog?

21:26:11 sendkathy -> Sharon, you’re presenting? I signed up to participate
21:26:18 sharonp -> yes

21:26:30 sharonp -> Friday Feb 16th at 2 PM EST
21:26:32 Vicki Davis -> The other 100 or so on the other feeds don’t get it, just my blog posts.
21:26:49 Vicki Davis -> www.feedburner.com is great!
21:27:00 Simon -> A community college in Ontario is offering credit through Second Life
21:27:06 sharonp -> I have to learn more about feedburner
21:27:13 sharonp -> Simon, which college?
21:27:18 sendkathy -> What do they teach in SL
21:27:28 sharonp -> Ontario is home province for me
21:27:30 Durff -> you have to show ud dummies how Vickie
21:28:08 Vinnie -> I will be posting our chat later this week/weekend. My parent training course is a moodle site (nsparented.org)
21:28:23 Vicki Davis -> Y’all aren’t dummies — I’ll see if I can do a step to step but it really guides you through — it says put in your delicious username and check the box that says add the delicious to the feed.
21:28:30 Simon -> Loyalist, I blogged about it: http://mrocarroll.wordpress.com/2007/02/02/my-thirteenth-post-second-life-real-life/
21:28:32 sharonp -> ahhh
21:28:34 Vicki Davis -> Just sign up for free at feedburner.

21:28:45 Cheri T -> thanks!
21:29:03 Vinnie -> sharon, where is the illinois online conference? I know about IL-TCE, which I am attending at the end of the month.
21:29:03 Vicki Davis -> I love your group, vinnie. You’re doing a great job! Everyone in the chat needs to go see what Vinnie is doing.
21:29:24 Simon -> Bellville
21:29:35 sharonp -> Vicki I was trying to convince my IT director that our school needs to have our website with rss feeds – he thinks it is going to cost too much! What is the cost involved potentially
21:29:59 Vinnie -> Cheryl, that is great. I have my next touchpoint with parent next week
21:30:02 sharonp -> Belleville – ah yes, our pit stop on our way down the 401 to Windsor
21:30:02 Durff -> cost? there’s no cost for rss
21:30:09 Vicki Davis -> RSS is free — go to our site www.westwoodschools.org — everything that I did is free – I have an old blog post, I’ll go get it.
21:30:34 Vinnie -> sharonp, there is no cost. maybe hosting costs for the school web site
21:30:36 Durff -> my RSS seems to have personal problems
21:30:38 sharonp -> http://www.ilonlineconf.org/
21:30:59 Vicki Davis -> http://coolcatteacher.blogspot.com/2005/12/save-time-webmaster-use-rss-feeds.html
21:31:01 sharonp -> that is what i told him, but he is convinced we pay by hits
21:31:15 sharonp -> thanks for the link Vicki!
21:31:18 Vicki Davis -> It is totally FREE! No, you don’t pay by hits – show him our website — we pay $18 a month. Period.
21:31:34 Vicki Davis -> If your IT guy needs to talk to me, I can, but I put everything in the post.
21:31:35 Durff -> many peple think web 2.0 apps cost money
21:31:46 Durff -> I tel ’em it’s in my price range
21:31:48 sharonp -> we pay a big company to maintain our site – he is afraid we pay more by hits and downloads
21:31:58 charbeck -> Free is the best part of 2.0. The stuff gets better all the time
21:31:59 sharonp -> cool
21:32:30 sharonp -> the Illinois Online conference is entirely online
21:32:35 JenniferW -> Phttp://www.cue.org/scoop/
21:32:36 sharonp -> uses elluminate
21:32:40 JenniferW -> http://www.cue.org/scoop/
21:32:47 JenniferW -> mark that site for March 1 – 3
21:32:49 Durff -> if you can get people to believe that it is free
21:32:55 JenniferW -> lots of info from CUE conference
21:33:29 Vinnie -> Sharon, I now see about the conference, but unlike k12 online, there is a cost.
21:33:36 sharonp -> yes
21:33:44 sharonp -> I presented last year
21:33:51 sharonp -> an entirely diff kind of crowd
21:34:11 sharonp -> during my orientation with other presenters, there were some there who had never heard of skype!
21:34:14 Durff -> different how?
21:34:45 sharonp -> more business, distance ed trainers. e-trainers for corporate sector
21:34:47 Durff -> oh, I see how different
21:35:04 sharonp -> but college, uni and k-12 as well – and international
21:35:22 sharonp -> it is good fresh audience for web 2.0
21:35:34 sharonp -> for those that are already somewhat techie
21:36:27 Cheri T -> I presented at the IOC 2 years ago – it is a very different group
21:36:48 cueinc -> http://www.hitchhikr.com/index.php?conf_id=47
21:36:50 Cheri T -> it’s so diverse that not all the presentations are visited
21:37:04 sharonp -> yes, but I like the way it is archived
21:37:17 sharonp -> you can visit it later – everything is recorded\
21:37:24 Cheri T -> that’s great! so easy to visit and share
21:37:35 cueinc -> This is the site I mentioned a minute ago
21:37:37 cueinc -> yeah – awesome
21:37:47 Durff -> thats good for those of us who work for a living
21:37:48 cueinc -> got to love David Warlick!
21:37:58 Vicki Davis -> Information doesn’t travel in straight lines — it is even more true than ever!
21:38:05 Vicki Davis -> David Warlick said that.
21:38:36 Durff -> oh those wrinkles again = sound waves
21:40:16 Durff -> like an Italian – can they talk without their hands? without their visuals?
21:40:45 Vicki Davis -> Like eating with your hands tied behind your back.
21:40:56 Vicki Davis -> You can do it but its not pretty.
21:41:23 sendkathy -> like a movie star without the makeup…who would notice them?
21:41:26 Durff -> says a lot about learning styles and to what traditional schools teach = the wrong style?
21:41:41 Vicki Davis -> I love wikis! These guys are cool!
21:41:45 Cheri T -> I’m presenting at IL-
21:41:49 Durff -> Amen!!
21:42:01 cheryloakes wow2 -> what is your topic cheri

21:42:03 sendkathy -> Cheri what are you presenting?
21:42:14 Cheri T -> that way we can get their questions early
21:42:26 Cheri T -> We’re presenting on Web 2.0 tools and applications
21:42:35 Durff -> cool
21:42:47 Cheri T -> they will leave with a blog, a wiki, a podcast, delicious, etc.
21:42:52 sendkathy -> and the list keeps growing
21:42:56 Cheri T -> yes
21:43:10 Durff -> my 7th grade are collaborating on wikis with a class in Missouri
21:43:16 Cheri T -> that’s so true
21:43:22 Cheri T -> connectivity

21:43:37 sharonp -> are they excited!
21:43:38 Cheri T -> so cool durff
21:43:40 sendkathy -> yes you must have to keep adding things up to the last minute
21:43:46 Cheri T -> we will
21:43:53 Durff -> it’s a small world afteral….
21:44:13 sharonp -> I wrote for eschool news at NECC and blogged the conference
21:44:17 Durff -> They vidoeconference was so much fun for them’
21:44:22 sendkathy -> Conferences have to change
21:44:34 sendkathy -> they are not as accessible as they should be
21:44:48 Vicki Davis -> It can be frustrating.
21:44:56 sendkathy -> you are so right about the lack of connectivity within the conference
21:45:05 sharonp -> they did have “official bloggers” – I was impressed with that
21:45:08 Durff -> people are afraid
21:45:14 Durff -> afraid of change
21:45:28 sendkathy -> true
21:45:29 Durff -> afraid of others taking their stuff
21:45:34 sharonp -> the wireless access was awesome – it literally saved my life when I was ther
21:45:39 sendkathy -> plus they really aren’t collaborating
21:45:44 Durff -> they are the opposite of transparent
21:45:53 sendkathy -> opaque
21:46:04 sharonp -> my cell phone wasn”t working and my daughters were home alone that week – at teh conference I could skype them on their cell phones
21:46:18 Cheri T -> also letterpop and bubbleshare
21:46:18 sendkathy -> that really is great
21:46:44 sharonp -> I saw podcasters at NECC, then when I got home, looked for them – there weren”t many!
21:46:53 sendkathy -> I know
21:46:58 sharonp -> I think we will see a TON of podcasting going on next time
21:47:02 sendkathy -> I tried to search for as many as I could find
21:47:12 sendkathy -> probably
21:47:19 sharonp -> I know Kathy will be podcasting!
21:47:27 sendkathy -> hmmm ya think?
21:47:40 sharonp -> the WOWsers will be podcasting too….
21:47:41 Durff -> do you call your podcast in?
21:47:44 sharonp -> and blogging….
21:47:54 sendkathy -> No, just record on mp3
21:47:55 cueinc -> Tags will help capture relevant podcasts for conferences
21:47:59 sendkathy -> I like to edit a bit
21:47:59 Durff -> how?
21:48:01 sharonp -> you tag it when you upload it to whatever service hosts it
21:48:08 sendkathy -> yes
21:48:13 sendkathy -> makes it easier to find
21:48:22 Durff -> record on whta?
21:48:27 cueinc -> one of the best NECC 06 podcasts was “Live from the NECC Escalator”
21:48:30 cueinc -> just awesome
21:48:31 sendkathy -> ipod
21:48:36 sharonp -> would be nice to have a podcast central
21:48:42 sendkathy -> or other mpp3 recorders even cheaper
21:48:43 Durff -> I don’t have an ipod
21:48:47 sharonp -> I use a little olympus recorder
21:48:48 cueinc -> don’t need an iPod
21:48:59 sendkathy -> Yes a central place to post all of the necc podcasts
21:49:03 cueinc -> 70-80% of podcasts are viewed/listened to on browsers
21:49:07 sharonp -> yes
21:49:08 sendkathy -> I think they attempted to do that last year
21:49:09 cueinc -> they do, actually
21:49:12 Durff -> I was going to call Gcast and podcast that way
21:49:27 Vicki Davis -> I had a tough time finding podcasts from NECC.
21:49:35 sharonp -> I record on an audio recorder, upload, edit with audacity and the upload to a podcast feeder
21:49:45 sendkathy -> me too
21:50:01 Cheri T -> me too, it was frustrating – they seemed to be there, but weren’t
21:50:05 sharonp -> depends on how and what you are podcasting
21:50:10 cueinc -> http://center.uoregon.edu/ISTE/NECC2006/program/podcasting.php
21:50:14 Durff -> I want to buy a recorder like Vickie was talking about on her blog
21:50:27 sharonp -> yeah – iRiver has a good rep
21:50:27 sendkathy -> http://www.successful-blog.com/
21:50:44 Vinnie -> I bought 2 iRivers, they ahve been great
21:51:01 sharonp -> weren”t ready for that – a chorus I hear at my school
21:51:01 Durff -> there aren
21:51:10 Durff -> aren’t any around here
21:51:23 Vicki Davis -> I can’t find the iRiver yet.
21:51:24 sendkathy -> I have one 2
21:51:31 Durff -> I can’t find any one the internet
21:51:32 Vicki Davis -> It is out now — Circuit City sold out.
21:51:41 sendkathy -> its th iclick has video but only 2gb
21:51:55 sendkathy -> good for podcasts
21:52:04 Durff -> yeah, I know, I went to Circuit City
21:52:32 sharonp -> you miss the face to face aspect, but the content can be very rich
21:52:34 Vicki Davis -> They only have the expensive ones left now. I love my iRiver – it hangs around my neck all day.
21:52:35 sendkathy -> look in amazon
21:52:57 sharonp -> or ebay
21:52:57 Durff -> that’s what I want Vickie
21:53:03 cueinc -> and http://www.hitckhikr.com/index.php?conf=13
21:53:07 cueinc -> sorry
21:53:17 Durff -> amazon doesn’t have them
21:53:26 cueinc -> http://www.hitchikr.com/index.php?conf_id=13
21:53:26 Durff -> but someday
21:53:27 Vicki Davis -> I think it is on ebay and that is it, but I paid $40.
21:53:39 JenniferW -> hmmm — mike — link isn’t working right
21:53:43 sharonp -> I know Dave Warlick challenged the attendees at Laptop Institute to contribute notes to a wiki – now sure how they worked out
21:53:52 Vinnie -> i got mine on ebay. $20 for a 1 gb one
21:54:06 sharonp -> pretty good deal Vinnie
21:54:19 cueinc -> http://www.hitchikr.com/index.php?conf_id=13
21:54:24 Vinnie -> it was refurbished and works like a charm
21:54:30 sharonp -> cool
21:54:33 cueinc -> sorry for the dupe post
21:54:41 sharonp -> I buy all kinds of great stuff on ebay
21:54:41 Durff -> we are all attendees if we are involved in the conversation
21:54:42 sendkathy -> I emailed the CIO of our county to find out if she has ablog about her technology plans for our schools…didn’t hear back
21:54:45 JenniferW -> hmmm — maybe its just my ‘puter — but link isn’t working
21:55:19 Durff -> it’s the weather
21:55:43 Vinnie -> goodnight all
21:55:46 Vicki Davis -> I keep my conference bag for years! Isn’t that crazy? I pull stuff out and look at it again, like a photo album.
21:55:50 Vicki Davis -> Night Vinnie.

21:57:15 Durff -> there it is in black and white
21:57:20 Vicki Davis -> This is a GREAT discussion with some incredible leaders in conference innovations!
21:57:39 Vicki Davis -> Can you imagine this — the power given to teachers via their blogs and podcasts to make a difference in ways such as this!
21:57:41 Karen Janowski -> durff sorry but I just got on, what are you talking about?
21:57:47 Durff -> where are you Simon?

22:00:38 Durff -> she can’t help herself
22:00:39 cheryloakes wow2 -> wow look at the chat! very busy and big
22:00:42 Karen Janowski -> Vicki has so much to say that is of value to all of us!
22:00:55 Durff -> absolutely
22:01:09 Simon -> Anyone have a blogging platform recommendation for students, I was thinking of learnerblogs.org
22:01:26 sharonp -> smartboards!
22:01:37 Durff -> [email protected] or [email protected]
22:01:40 sharonp -> have the survey results from our students about smartboards!
22:01:55 Durff -> wow that was fast
22:01:56 Karen Janowski -> sharon – share!
22:02:03 sharonp -> high percentage believed smartboards improveed their learning]
22:02:09 sharonp -> 89% -ish
22:02:10 Karen Janowski -> in what way?
22:02:12 cueinc -> [email protected]
22:02:14 Durff -> numberrs?
22:02:16 Vicki Davis -> Oh, Karen — although prolific, I’ve been spending more time per post.
22:02:17 JenniferW -> thanks Mike
22:02:28 Vicki Davis -> And I promised George Siemens that I’d be a context filter.
22:02:31 Durff -> 15?
22:02:36 Durff -> I want i
22:02:37 sharonp -> you know, I have to go back and look at the question and the results
22:02:38 Karen Janowski -> you are amazing!
22:02:39 Vicki Davis -> I’ve got a whammy of a post about the new media I’m working on.
22:02:40 cueinc -> “Bright Lights, Powerful Teaching” is what we call the Projector workshop
22:02:41 Durff -> just one
22:02:49 sharonp -> it was presented at a staff meeting just yesterday
22:02:52 Vicki Davis -> So, I always have my hot blog post that I work on.
22:03:11 Durff -> I love your posts!
22:03:16 Karen Janowski -> Sharon, did they give specific comments?
22:03:21 Karen Janowski -> what exactly improved?
22:03:23 Vicki Davis -> What a great name of the projector conference!
22:03:25 Durff -> I have them in my RSS agregator
22:03:28 sharonp -> don”t think so
22:03:34 cheryloakes wow2 -> i want to take the projector workshop
22:03:47 sharonp -> I would have asked diff questions myself…. but the questions were pretty straightforward
22:03:48 Vicki Davis -> I have a projector and I want to take the workshop.
22:04:02 Durff -> I want a screen
22:04:04 Vicki Davis -> We missed you! Something about this hour in Canada!
22:04:11 Vicki Davis -> I have a smart board that someone is coming to install!
22:04:11 Karen Janowski -> sharon – what were the questions?
22:04:13 Durff -> my blind is falling down
22:04:26 Vicki Davis -> Blind?
22:04:28 sharonp -> I couldn”t teach without my projector or smartboard!
22:04:44 Durff -> I don’t have a screen
22:04:50 Durff -> I have a window blind
22:04:51 sharonp -> this is my third year with a smartboard in the classroom – haven’t touched chalk in years!!
22:05:10 Vicki Davis -> I have one waiting to be installed.
22:05:14 Durff -> wow – i want a swmartboard too!
22:05:15 Karen Janowski -> sharon, in our town, every high school teacher has a smartboard in their classroom. Only about 50% use them and less than use the all the features that improve student performance.
22:05:19 sharonp -> you will love it
22:05:28 Vicki Davis -> Had money to buy it but not install it! Finally got the money to install it — kind of nuts!
22:05:31 sharonp -> what a shame
22:05:38 Karen Janowski -> yes!!!!
22:05:39 Durff -> ship one up here – i;ll use it
22:05:47 Vicki Davis -> My husband although he is an engineer doesn’t have time to install everything for me!
22:05:54 Vicki Davis -> Oh, its going in within the next two weeks.
22:05:56 sharonp -> I don’t use it every moment – but every day almost for sure – if just to present links and such
22:06:06 Karen Janowski -> i have two kids in high school and every day I ask them if their teachers use the SMartboards!
22:06:10 sharonp -> it integrates with powerpoint quite well
22:06:23 Vicki Davis -> I have a projector with a stand — I enjoy it and use it heavily — when its smart — oh baby!
22:06:25 Karen Janowski -> do you use the recording feature?
22:06:33 Durff -> I want a Smartboard workshop
22:06:41 Karen Janowski -> that works very well for the students who benefit from repetition and review
22:06:53 Karen Janowski -> great UDL tool
22:06:55 sharonp -> I find it still a bit teacher-centric – we are a laptop school – so a lot of our clas time is devoted to hands-on with the laptop
22:07:13 Durff -> lucky people
22:07:15 Karen Janowski -> Durff – i’ll give you one!
22:07:19 Karen Janowski -> where r u?
22:07:20 Durff -> ok
22:07:29 Durff -> I’ll take it
22:07:36 Vicki Davis -> My kids do so much up front, they’d love it.
22:07:38 Durff -> Hagerstown
22:07:41 sharonp -> I rarely use the recording feature – my kind of teaching does not lend itself to that!
22:08:12 Karen Janowski -> keep in mind that your students might benefit from it – even snippets like when you say “this is really important, you need to get this!”
22:08:14 sharonp -> my kids BEG to be up at the smartboard
22:08:15 Durff -> we all had to share one computer for our vidoeconference
22:08:35 Karen Janowski -> sharon what do u teach?
22:08:39 sharonp -> English
22:08:40 Vicki Davis -> Could I combine it wtih my recorded podcasts?
22:08:56 sharonp -> the recorded bit becomes a screencast
22:09:08 Durff -> videopodcasts?
22:09:23 Vicki Davis -> Oh — I forgot to post the hyperlink to my class’ interview with the nanotechnology expert today — http://odeo.com/show/8023413/1079340/download/InterviewWithNanotechnologyExpertEarlBoysen.mp3
22:09:27 Vicki Davis -> Talk about changes coming!
22:09:32 sharonp -> can’t recall what format they save as – mov files maybe?
22:09:37 Karen Janowski -> avi
22:09:48 sharonp -> ahhh
22:09:56 sharonp -> see it has been a while!
22:09:57 Durff -> .avi
22:10:13 Karen Janowski -> durff, does your school have smartboards? It they do, you can download the software for your home computer
22:10:13 cueinc -> http://www.cue.org/macworld/
22:10:18 sharonp -> that’s cool Jen!
22:10:29 Vicki Davis -> Karen — Durff’s first name is Lisa — FYI — she’s a great blogger too!
22:10:39 Karen Janowski -> thanks vicki!
22:10:40 Durff -> no we have no smartboards
22:10:41 Vicki Davis -> She coined the phrase — “The world is wrinkled.”
22:10:43 Karen Janowski -> what’s the url?
22:10:48 Karen Janowski -> lol
22:11:09 sharonp -> thanks Mark and Mike
22:11:10 Durff -> she is not a great blogger
22:11:41 Cheri T -> thanks guys – from another Californian
22:11:45 Cheri T -> see you at NECC
22:11:57 sharonp -> cool workshop topic! We were just talking about INternet safety today at the Connectivism conference – much interest in that!
22:12:10 Vicki Davis -> She — Lisa — you blog — or maybe I just read your comments.
22:12:23 Cheri T -> yea!
22:12:26 Vicki Davis -> Aren’t you a blogger Lisa? Drop in the URL.
22:12:33 sharonp -> all over the world!!

22:13:49 sharonp -> I wish I will be in California for CUE!

22:19:42 Karen Janowski -> one thing – since I’m so connected because of talks like this, blogging etc. I forget that most of education is clueless about Web 2.0. My own kids high school doesn’t use any of the tools. You guys all need to be cloned!

22:25:44 Vicki Davis -> Yes, they do pick it up very quickly and you can’t sit in front and say click here and then there.
22:25:56 Durff -> You ARE SO INTELLIGENT!!!!
22:25:57 Vicki Davis -> You have to start and direct and then move quickly.
22:25:59 Karen Janowski -> I taught adult ed and said please, let me work with the kids! it was exhausting teaching adults!~
