This is a great show, the chat is below and you will love listening to the Aussies! This is the first show we had hosting 8 people in the SKYPE. This is our first show where we were live in 2 days July 10 and July 11.
Here is the agenda!
Cheryl, Jen, Sharon, Sharon Vicki
2) Introductions – Each of you will share a bit about yourself
and I’d like you to each to introduce yourself and one or two "over the
top" things you’ve done lately in your classroom.Education 2.0 in Australia — What are some good things that are happening?or happening faster?5) As you talk to other educators who are learning about Web 2 tools,
what do you say or do to encourage their participation and integration
into their classroom?Describe your school year, how many teacher days, how many student days, starting date, ending date.

21:22:44 jcox Moodle is free
21:22:47 jcox If you want to host it yourself
21:22:49 Durff moodle is free
21:23:04 patruffing i can’t host…no web server
21:23:05 Durff it is a download
21:23:07 jcox Having gone through the process of installing, and then the painful upgrade, have it hosted 🙂
21:23:09 jo mcleay what an interesting idea Jason
21:23:13 Durff to a server
21:23:18 Csouthard Are you all skyping too?
21:23:26 Vicki Davis I like skype an expert — that is really a cool title.
21:23:28 Durff who?
21:23:41 Durff hi jen
21:23:43 grahamwegner skype is blocked in south oz schools
21:23:46 Jennifer W Hi Lisa
21:23:48 mjantzi Skyped with students in Cairo, Egypt.
21:23:55 cheryloakes wow2.0 siteground hosts moodle for 6.95 per month
21:23:56 Jennifer W Skype is blocked — but MySpace is wide open???
21:24:00 Durff no jenhurd
21:24:01 jcox lol
21:24:02 sharonp I have been booted out of skype conversatin – my stubborn mac wouldn’t let me mute and teh blues music was getting too distracting (as was the wind)
21:24:07 Csouthard so we’re just chatting tonight?
21:24:07 Sue Waters Our gov departments don’t like Skype
21:24:08 Durff butr hi to you too
21:24:14 Diane H How do you make connections with your experts?
21:24:16 Vicki Davis Some don’t like skype
21:24:17 Jennifer W because???? — not like skype??
21:24:21 Vicki Davis We are on channel A
21:24:24 Vicki Davis Can you not hear?
21:24:27 Durff Meebo
21:24:29 patruffing too much bandwidth?
21:24:30 Durff Evoca
21:24:35 Vicki Davis I’m trying to figure out how many cannot hear.
21:24:35 jcox Skype likes to jump around and find open ports
21:24:38 Durff Skype
21:24:46 Jennifer W really??? I did not know that
21:24:46 jo mcleay skype is a problem at my school because of bandwidth I think
21:24:48 Durff Elluminate
21:24:48 jcox It’s pretty hard to block, and opens up a lot of stuff you might want to block.
21:24:54 Jennifer W about PORTS
21:25:00 jerihurd how do I find you on SKype?
21:25:04 Sue Waters Google Talk seems to be less of a problem
21:25:13 Durff email address
21:25:18 jo mcleay that’s interesting sue
21:25:19 Sue Waters We use Google Talk not a problem
21:25:20 jcox Is that available on macs yet?
21:25:21 cheryloakes wow2.0 does google talk work on macs now?
21:25:22 Durff finds people on skyped
21:25:23 Jennifer W Jeri — right now, we are at our limit
21:25:29 Jennifer W OH — sory
21:25:32 Jennifer W you mean in the future
21:25:35 Jennifer W I am JenW0424
21:25:36 Sue Waters not sure will ask my mac friends
21:25:36 jerihurd oh, ok
21:25:37 Jennifer W on Skype
21:25:38 patruffing i will have to look into google talk
21:25:40 sharonp that’s funny – my school gave me skype but balked at google talk
21:25:49 Sue Waters Google Talk is good
21:26:05 sharonp one needs to have a google accoujnt and they didn’t want the kids to have access to email on campus
21:26:23 patruffing that is always the problem…email for the kids
21:26:25 jo mcleay we do have emil for each student
21:26:30 jo mcleay email
21:26:31 sharonp hey I love google – my bro in law works there – have a funky new google girl mug this week!
21:26:38 patruffing we have used our wiki mail to communicate in class
21:26:43 Durff yes jo – use gaggle
21:26:53 Jennifer W gaggle or google??
21:26:54 sharonp what a good idea – wiki email – of course!
21:26:58 jo mcleay ok i’ll try that Lisa
21:26:59 Sue Waters Lost sound
21:26:59 Durff hello jenhurd
21:27:14 nzchrissy Is there much of a difference between skype and google talk – apart from access
21:27:16 sharonp bring the expert in
21:27:18 Jennifer W Sue Waters — have you ever lived in the Southern California area??
21:27:22 joycevalenza hi jeri
21:27:29 Durff Sue try another audio player
21:27:32 Sue Waters Never even been to US
21:27:35 Jennifer W ahhhhh
21:27:42 Diane H It’s amazing how professional the students become when engaged with experts.
21:27:43 cheryloakes wow2.0 thanks for helping Durff
21:27:51 jerihurd hey, joyce!
21:27:56 Durff i did nothing
21:28:19 Durff chrissy – they are similiar
21:28:25 Jennifer W Hi Sue — I just wondered because I interviewed a Sue Waters in 1977
21:28:28 sharonp I would like to know what constitutes as professional development for Australian teachers
21:28:28 Sue Waters Got sound back but lost chat screen
21:28:38 Jennifer W only remember because I won a prize for the interview
21:28:45 Sue Waters Not me sorry but my sites are Mobile Technology in TAFE
21:28:51 Jennifer W ahhhhhh
21:28:54 Vicki Davis OK, Sharon, we’ll make sure we get that one in.
21:28:59 jo mcleay Jason we have 75 minute period
21:29:13 Durff that’s long
21:29:19 jo mcleay I love it
21:29:29 Durff how true
21:29:29 Jason Hando ok, Jo, that is a good length
21:29:33 Jason Hando would like that
21:29:43 AliceMercer JO, are you doing activities, and projects?
21:29:50 Durff i like the no block thing
21:30:05 jo mcleay yeah we are encouraged to vary the activities
21:30:18 Jason Hando we have filter for last 6 mths – no myspace, youtube etc
21:30:20 AliceMercer You’d have to Jo, or they’d fall asleep/revolt
21:30:24 jcox Teachers don’t take advantage of longer blocks, from what I’ve seen…it’s not a time to split the block up and do different projects mixed with lectures, it’s just straight lectures
21:30:41 jo mcleay Haven’t lectured for years
21:30:44 patruffing can you give us your school’s website so we could get to know more about how things work at your school?
21:30:46 AliceMercer Great, block schedule leading to longer lectures, lol
21:30:57 Vicki Davis I think the research is showing that teachers aren’t taking advantage of blocks — I’m not sure where I read that.
21:30:59 jcox Mostly at the high school level, I haven’t been out for that long
21:31:00 jo mcleay www.materchristi.edu.au
21:31:05 patruffing thanks
21:31:07 Jason Hando http://www.mas.nsw.edu.au is my school’s site
21:31:08 cheryloakes wow2.0 the chat with all links will be published on Thur. at edtechtalk.com
21:31:12 Vicki Davis So I’ll have to find it to share it — Cheri do you know if you’ve seen anything about that?
21:31:21 grahamwegner primary school teachers have so much more flexibility
21:31:24 Sue Waters Blocking varies State by State; and can be school by school
21:31:24 sharonp the survey I mentioned earlier the students reported that they wanted less standardized testing and less filtering on the Internet
21:31:29 Jason Hando MCEETYA
21:31:40 Durff who?
21:31:46 AliceMercer I think they vary between 9th and 10-12th here.
21:32:10 AliceMercer They have/had a school within a school for 9th here to try to transition kids to comprehensive HS
21:32:11 CheriT I haven’t heard anything about the block system
21:32:17 sharonp Speak Up survey
21:32:29 jo mcleay I can’t wait till that happens to me Judy
21:32:29 Vicki Davis I’m going to ask Dr. Shepherd I think it came from her.
21:32:48 Jason Hando I’d like to share about the new catholic schools in sydney run by Greg Whitby if possible
21:32:51 patruffing jo…I am at a Catholic school also
21:33:24 Mickprest it depends on whether the people on charge of the filters at the school have an open or closed view of schoolkids
21:33:34 Sue Waters Transformation coulc be negative
21:33:36 Durff you know too much jason
21:33:44 Sue Waters NSW is blocking a lot
21:33:48 Jason Hando often the tech support guys run the filtration unfort
21:33:58 Jason Hando durff 😉
21:33:59 sharonp yes, often they are the ones
21:33:59 jcox Facebook, Myspace, stuff like that can’t really be controlled.
21:34:14 Durff yeaqh, i hear ya
21:34:20 Vicki Davis Oh no, I’m on blogger too!
21:34:33 cheryloakes wow2.0 I am on blogger too.
21:34:34 jcox Blocks can be applied but students will still get to them, and once one figures out how they all know how.
21:34:36 Jason Hando so am I!
21:34:49 Durff what’s wrong with blogger?
21:34:55 jcox Examples like airaim, tons of proxy servers, all that junk.
21:35:03 Durff oh!
21:35:05 Mickprest Judy,the problem we are striking in Sydney CEO and Web 2.0 is bandwidth!! But I do agree that qweb 2.0 is beginning to build.
21:35:06 sharonp my daughter discovered I had a facebook account last night – it was pretty funny – students will behave themselves if they realize they are being monitored
21:35:10 Durff i disagree
21:35:18 Durff thank you very much
21:35:39 Durff i am blogger
21:35:52 Vicki Davis There are some bad blogs on blogger — but there are bad blogs anywhere.
21:35:56 Sue Waters I agree that there is too much blocking
21:35:59 Durff and just posted a Christian rock group
21:36:32 grahamwegner rachel boyd is very cool
21:36:36 Jason Hando blocking is a knee j*rk reaction that is only option while leadership catches up
21:36:39 Durff she is
21:36:41 alicebarr Why are the IT guys making the educational decisions?
21:36:41 sharonp establishing good relationships with the tech support peeps is critical
21:36:45 nzchrissy Rachel Boyd is awesome!!
21:36:47 jcox lol
21:36:54 Sue Waters Actually it is not always the IT people
21:37:01 Jennifer W Rachel Boyd is COOL — we just met 2 nights ago
21:37:02 Vicki Davis IT should not be making educational decisions.
21:37:07 Durff admin should be making the decisions
21:37:09 Jennifer W LOL — I am IT
21:37:12 CheriT we need to be educating our adminstrators so they are the ones who are making informed decisinos
21:37:13 Vicki Davis Filtering in the chat room.
21:37:15 Durff sounds like politics
21:37:16 Cathy N from SC but admin trust the it
21:37:17 jcox As my experience as IT, it hasn’t been me
21:37:23 Jennifer W and my admin trusts my judgement
21:37:25 Sue Waters The problem is they have to respond to Gov auditors
21:37:25 jo mcleay Jen I wish you were in my school
21:37:29 alicebarr I agree CheriT
21:37:30 Jennifer W Me too JO
21:37:31 Cathy N from SC the hardware it folks
21:37:35 patruffing i do education AND i am IT
21:37:36 jcox Sue has it
21:37:44 Vicki Davis Jen is an exceptional IT person — she has classroom experience.
21:37:45 patruffing i control all the filtering…haha
21:37:48 Jennifer W you also need to push for having EDUcATORS in the IT department
21:37:51 Csouthard We just had this conversation @ our school. We’d like to meet w/ the IT people to collaborative more.
21:37:56 Jennifer W instead of TECHIES
21:38:03 joycevalenza We have to get word out about our projects. Make administrators eembarrassed not to have them going on at their schools
21:38:07 jcox You need both, imo
21:38:10 sharonp bringing the tech support peeps into the conversation and SHOWING them how what we are doing is educationally great works wonders
21:38:14 sharonp bringing the techies into the conversation and showing them the educational benefits works wonders
21:38:16 Jennifer W we also do well with bribes!!! 🙂
21:38:17 Durff it is a perfect word
21:38:20 Vicki Davis IT folks are often trying to free up bandwidth versus looking at academic use.
21:38:30 sharonp sorry double post – having wifi issues
21:38:32 Jennifer W I think that is a blanket statement
21:38:35 sharonp feed the techies!
21:38:41 Jennifer W I think bandwidth is an issue
21:38:43 jcox Please, we’re hungry
21:38:45 Jennifer W that needs to be addressed
21:38:50 Csouthard Connect & Collaborate
21:38:50 Sue Waters We should be educating them on appropriate use and we can’t if we block
21:38:51 Jennifer W but it is easier to buy more space
21:38:55 Jennifer W and they need to realize that
21:39:03 CheriT we in the US need to catch up with Japan on band width
21:39:08 Jennifer W but bandwidth should not be the deciding factor
21:39:11 jo mcleay Hi Rachel
21:39:12 patruffing jen…easier to buy more bandwidth?
21:39:17 jcox You can educate students all they want, they’re going to see what they want to see
21:39:22 Jennifer W HELLO RACHEL — its MacsMom!!!
21:39:25 Csouthard What is Japan doing that we aren’t?
21:39:30 Rachel Hi! I am late but I am here!
21:39:30 Sue Waters Yes but we can go to far
21:39:31 joycevalenza an educators should make curricular decisions
21:39:31 nzchrissy Hi Rachel
21:39:33 Jennifer W Pat — we were able to purchase more
21:39:37 Jennifer W through our servers
21:39:38 Cathy N from SC bandwidth is the easiest way to say no for some district admin
21:39:40 Jennifer W don’t ask me how
21:39:43 Durff how many in the chat room?
21:39:43 CheriT their band width is about 100 times what we have
21:39:44 Jennifer W but we were able to
21:39:48 Jennifer W 27
21:39:51 patruffing i just got ours bumped up, but not what i really want
21:39:52 Durff wow
21:40:03 Jennifer W Bandwidth is an easy out
21:40:04 patruffing money is ALWAYS an issue
21:40:07 Jennifer W you need them to PROVE it
21:40:11 Cathy N from SC hey melinda
21:40:14 cheryloakes wow2.0 oh hello melinda, is the baby in bed?
21:40:16 patruffing prove what?
21:40:19 Mickprest The reality is that the kids who really want to get around things the filters are using the proxy masking sites.
21:40:19 mmiller Hello everyone
21:40:20 Durff good then they see the good youtubes too
21:40:20 Jennifer W we thought that our bandwidth was an issue — with the old IT guys
21:40:24 Sue Waters But they are going to do it at home so better to teach them at school
21:40:24 Jennifer W and it WAS NOT
21:40:32 Jennifer W but no one knew it
21:40:37 mmiller No I have relatives here and she is running around like a crazy child
21:40:38 Jennifer W so they had to just accept the IT’s determination
21:40:46 jcox As a note, if any teachers need to get around a specific block, get a server and set up squidproxy
21:40:50 cheryloakes wow2.0 mmilller, live is busy with the babe.
21:41:03 mmiller Cheryl, I have pic to send you of the youngest WOW member
21:41:05 Sue Waters Ideally lets stop them from blocking in the first place
21:41:11 Jason Hando agree Graham
21:41:14 cheryloakes wow2.0 oh, please send it along, that will be great
21:41:21 joycevalenza use a torn newspaper to demo this concept
21:41:27 Jennifer W we thought out Bandwidth would hit the roof with United Streaming — and it didn’t even make a dent
21:41:35 Rachel and we all know Graham is addicted to twitter!
21:41:38 Durff it’s a game
21:41:43 Durff a challenge
21:41:46 Sue Waters That is crazy
21:41:51 Vicki Davis He is a bit twit happy — ha ha!
21:41:52 patruffing i don’t agree to unblock everything
21:41:59 Sue Waters And as you find them they block them
21:42:04 Jennifer W is he twitting now???
21:42:06 jcox Good tip
21:42:11 patruffing i unblock as needed
21:42:11 Sue Waters sorry I work for a TAFE system
21:42:14 jo mcleay We have to teach stude nts what to do when confronted with questionable material
21:42:15 Cathy N from SC how to use torn paper joyce?
21:42:15 Jennifer W I would NEVER unblock everything
21:42:24 Jennifer W for a multitude of reasons
21:42:28 patruffing if I want to show kids a really good vid on youtube i unblock
21:42:30 Durff that would be me…gettting around those blocking guys
21:42:36 Vicki Davis I agree, Jo.
21:42:42 Jennifer W my boss calls our filter our REGULATOR
21:42:46 Jennifer W not our FILTER
21:42:48 Vicki Davis Pat, you have access to your filter like I do?
21:42:48 Sue Waters In a big organisation like I work unblocking takes months
21:42:48 patruffing then i reblock when educ use is over
21:42:51 Jason Hando its a good conversation to have – what do we think about blocking
21:42:54 cheryloakes wow2.0 sharon, ready to come back on skype?
21:42:55 Rachel Yes, all my kids have unfiltered systems at home
21:42:57 jcox Kids love p0rn…and if they can’t get p0rn, they’ll go for excerpts from romance novels
21:43:00 patruffing yes…i am the filter admin
21:43:08 Sue Waters my kids are also unfiltered
21:43:09 patruffing i am the everything admin if it has a plug
21:43:13 Jennifer W LOLOL
21:43:20 Jennifer W I totally understand Pat
21:43:47 Jennifer W do you do the webpage too???
21:43:54 Diane H Do you have to be young to be techno savvy 🙂
21:43:55 Cathy N from SC their phil–ignorance is bliss
21:44:02 jcox Yes
21:44:03 Sue Waters no
21:44:07 Jennifer W LOL — Hope NOt
21:44:11 patruffing i am old…and i am techier than my kids
21:44:18 Sue Waters Last time I looked I am not young
21:44:20 Cathy N from SC me to
21:44:26 Jennifer W I am closer to 50 than young
21:44:30 Jennifer W so Hope Not
21:44:31 Sue Waters 🙂
21:44:32 Cathy N from SC is 43 young? I think so
21:44:35 Rachel I know way too many great NZ teachers who are at least twice my age and they are VERY techno savvy!
21:44:37 Durff yes
21:44:38 Jennifer W I do– CathyN
21:44:48 patruffing i have passed 50 a while ago
21:44:57 Durff Cathy you are young
21:44:58 Jennifer W and you survived?? LOL, so there is hope for me???
21:44:59 jo mcleay me too patruffing
21:45:05 alicebarr Jcox I disagree, I have seen students be quite responsible when ur cmes to
21:45:10 patruffing the best is yet to come jen
21:45:10 Cathy N from SC i also know young teachers who are technophobes
21:45:13 alicebarr p*rn
21:45:14 Jennifer W I hope
21:45:19 Mickprest I find that the problem is (as Jason just said) that the school leaders just don’t understand this web stuff. They can handle bullying on the bus etc but they feel powerless in this web environment that they don’t understand so they kneej*rk! Since the shoot (my asterixed word wors fileter by this site!!) stops with them it is understandable- we need to work with them too!!
21:45:22 Cathy N from SC i blame the teacher educ programs
21:45:24 patruffing i don’t care about looking foolish anymore…i try anything
21:45:29 patruffing (legal)
21:45:32 jo mcleay I agree pat
21:45:33 Jennifer W LOLOLOL
21:45:33 Durff i agree with alicebarr
21:45:35 Jason Hando Mick – spot on!
21:45:37 Jennifer W yeah right, Pat
21:45:44 Sue Waters Agree Mick
21:45:46 joycevalenza isn’t that a strange thing. do any of our local colleagues really read our blogs?
21:45:50 jcox I had the opportunity to monitor via a VNC connection wha tstudents look at in school
21:45:55 Jennifer W My boss reads my blog
21:45:55 Sue Waters no they do not read our blog
21:46:01 nzchrissy So does mine
21:46:04 jcox And then I enjoyed looking through their computers to find out what they were doing out of school
21:46:08 Jennifer W and so do friends
21:46:09 Cathy N from SC i wish
21:46:11 joycevalenza mine might
21:46:11 Durff i read your blog joyce
21:46:12 patruffing my principal doesn’t even look at our website
21:46:15 mmiller Careful – Principal Miller is learning a s quickly as she can:):):)
21:46:16 joycevalenza not sure.
21:46:17 Csouthard We have so many teachers who won’t establish student blogs b/c they’re afraid
21:46:18 jo mcleay My boss doesn’t have time to read my log
21:46:21 jerihurd grin–well, I’m teaching a blogging workshop to classmates, and when I teach them BLoglines, I’m making them add mine!
21:46:22 jcox Even the ones you wouldn’t think to, they love the p0rn
21:46:24 Jennifer W Pat — we need you ON our show!!!
21:46:24 Rachel My principal reads my blog too…. but he never makes a comment
21:46:32 joycevalenza thanks, durff
21:46:39 patruffing ha
21:46:43 Cathy N from SC i send forwards from blogs to my princ all the time
21:46:46 mmiller I had to tell my teachers how to find the comments that I left them
21:46:48 CheriT lost the sound
21:47:03 Jennifer W MMiller — but now they have it???
21:47:06 Csouthard I don’t have audio either
21:47:07 jerihurd yeah, Joyce. Do your school colleagues realize what a guru you are?
21:47:10 joycevalenza good point, vicki!
21:47:11 CheriT it’s back
21:47:11 Maria Absolutely – we need to encourage and support our new teachers
21:47:12 Durff use a different player Dr. Toledo
21:47:20 cheryloakes wow2.0 we were a little quiet, is the sound back?
21:47:22 Durff oh now you tell me
21:47:23 mmiller yes, I told them not to block the comments
21:47:28 Jennifer W Ahhh
21:47:29 Cathy N from SC probably since she travels extensively–say Joyce?
21:47:30 Diane H Ontario has an online network just for new teachers!
21:47:31 Jennifer W and you use what blogger???
21:47:38 joycevalenza huh? i play it very low key at school. shhhh

21:50:42 Rachel Yes looking forwards to K12 conference
21:50:48 nzchrissy me too
21:50:50 Diane H Very cool idea!
21:50:50 Cathy N from SC Jason what is your twitter name?
21:50:50 Csouthard I’m excited about the K12 Conference
21:50:54 jerihurd I’m looking forward to it, too

21:51:06 Jason Hando http://twitter.com/jhando
21:51:07 Rachel wow that’s a cool idea
21:51:15 Cathy N from SC thx
21:51:17 Durff now i can breathe again
21:51:18 mmiller I think we are going to host some open computer lab times for the online conference and give teachers credti
21:51:19 Csouthard What about TappediN?
21:51:20 Vicki Davis http://twitter.com/coolcatteacher — I’ll share mine too!
21:51:23 jcox How do you motivate teachers to care about technology?
21:51:27 Jennifer W love TAPPED IN
21:51:42 cheryloakes wow2.0 our tapped in show has been downloaded 1455 times, a record for us.
21:51:44 Rachel PD online is great!
21:51:49 Cathy N from SC my pro deve happens online most as well
21:51:56 Csouthard Teachers have to play w/ technology to be less scared
21:51:58 Rachel but I still like meeting people in real life!
21:52:00 patruffing i have to say, though, that sometimes I feel overwhelmed by so much out there to try out…i can’t keep up with Real Life
21:52:07 Diane H Go with the "unconference"!
21:52:13 Jennifer W I agree, Rachel
21:52:17 Cathy N from SC lose tv and you’ll gain time
21:52:28 Vicki Davis http://parra-bib-blog.blogspot.com/ – From Judy – great group blog.
21:52:30 patruffing i don’t watch TV
21:52:30 Rachel nothing like getting away to somewhere and truly immersing yourself in a conference
21:52:35 jcox Lose a family, a job, various other junk, you’ll gain time
21:52:37 patruffing i am mostly on the computer
21:52:37 Csouthard What unconference?
21:52:43 nzchrissy We love unconfrerences
21:52:47 Sue Waters 🙂
21:52:47 jcox And you’ll find out why students have so much time to get around school filters
21:52:52 Csouthard I’m only here b/c the baby is sleeping 😀
21:52:58 Cathy N from SC m on right now while the guys watch a baseball game
21:53:01 Jennifer W Pat — I think I use your TV time allowance then 🙂
21:53:06 patruffing hah
21:53:06 mmiller In defense of principals, leaders, admin everywhere, our job is VERY people oriented and some days we are dealing with so much we don’t even get to our email until noon and then we have 50 by then.
21:53:15 Durff i’m glad the baby is sleeping!
21:53:17 Rachel NZ had an online conference this year (the first) and the main thing that came out of it for our teachers was that they couldn’t manage to look at the presentations whilst also full time teaching –
21:53:26 Rachel although I made the time!
21:53:32 Jennifer W is the All Stars game on already???
21:53:38 nzchrissy You do it if you want to
21:53:45 Cathy N from SC i have wow and other shows listed in my google calendar
21:53:45 nzchrissy you make time that is
21:53:48 Rachel all about motivation?
21:53:51 Csouthard K12 is during the school day?
21:53:54 Rachel and need
21:53:54 Durff true Chrissy
21:53:57 Jennifer W CathyN — you are a dedicated teacher!!!
21:54:07 Cathy N from SC even 2nit i logged in a little late due to SL
21:54:11 Vicki Davis http://edubloggerworld.ning.com
21:54:12 jcox How do you create that though? Why would someone who already ahs a full plate want the extra work?
21:54:25 jcox And pouring through all this stuff is work
21:54:32 Csouthard If you want something done – ask a busy person – they know how to juggle
21:54:35 patruffing i do professional development for our teachers after school once a week, and i bribe them with snacks, and they even get paid to come…it is still a struggle
21:54:45 Rachel NZ conference is available virtually until at least the end of the year
21:54:46 nzchrissy if it’s part of your philosophy and you believe it will work with your teaching and work for your students you will do it
21:54:49 nzchrissy and learn it
21:54:52 Rachel oh yes – bribes are good
21:54:56 jcox lol
21:54:58 Cathy N from SC NZ address?
21:55:00 nzchrissy yes those too!!
21:55:01 jcox philosophy vs bribes
21:55:11 jcox nz sounds like a nice place 🙂

22:06:13 Rachel I certainly couldn’t afford a iphone
22:06:18 Rachel so I will just drool
22:06:19 Sue Waters Not nice to talk about iphones when Aussie guests can not buy them
22:06:24 Durff i won’t pay
22:06:25 darrendraper Will an iPhone work down under?
22:06:27 alicebarr It worked in Maine Cheryl

22:13:48 Rachel must be frustrating not having access to all of that!
