21:25:06 diane -> -EdTechTalk: Students grasp local projects better than global applications in my area

21:25:12 Pam (shoemap) -> -EdTechTalk: probably past their bedtime

21:25:24 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Using data to support their learning–great process

21:25:52 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: hmmmm perhaps I misunderstood

21:25:53 diane -> -EdTechTalk: Student Voice/participation is wonderful

21:26:01 pjhiggins -> -EdTechTalk: Read/Write Web has a list of the greenest search engines today.

21:26:03 grace -> -EdTechTalk: What a great project!

21:26:06 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: We are asking about Admin Involvement and Parent Concerns

21:26:14 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: if you have ??? please ask them here

21:26:52 khokanson -> -EdTechTalk: GREAT question jen

21:27:01 khokanson -> -EdTechTalk: That is HUGE

21:27:06 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: green Green to this πŸ˜€

21:27:08 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: what a great use of podcasts–review tool πŸ™‚

21:27:16 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: Yep — big deal — safety for students but ability to have a voice

21:27:28 diane -> -EdTechTalk: Volunteered to go to Regents’ workshop – need state/national guidelines re. connectivity

21:28:03 diane -> -EdTechTalk: Cyber safety curriculum?

21:28:08 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: value of blogs — that the outside world can see what you are doing!!!

21:28:13 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: we need that

21:28:22 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: yes dianne

21:28:23 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @ColetteC do you have a link you could share for your student animated banners for Earth Day?

21:28:28 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: 120 students — 2 concerns with safety

21:28:36 diane -> -EdTechTalk: Parents and admin more worried about adult predators than bullies, the real danger

21:29:02 khokanson -> -EdTechTalk: sure is

21:29:20 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Yes! blogs make learning transparent

21:29:34 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: Bill of Rights for students —

21:29:54 diane -> -EdTechTalk: Unfortunate that we have to fight this battle district by district

21:30:01 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: oh wow, the night is not over…. invited the wrong Patrick Higgins along to our conversation in skype….

21:30:08 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: LOL

21:30:21 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: we have the right one lined up now…..

21:30:21 pjhiggins -> -EdTechTalk: There are two of me?

21:30:23 diane -> -EdTechTalk: There’s a wrong Patrick Higgins?

21:30:31 ColetteC -> -EdTechTalk: What do you guys this of this blog entry by D’Arcy Norman http://www.darcynorman.net/2008/04/22/earth-day-sucks/ and how does this tie into what we are discussing tonight???

21:30:33 pjhiggins -> -EdTechTalk: my dark side

21:30:42 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: I send out a publishing permission slip at the beginning of the year for images, student work, voice, and writing.

21:30:44 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: there seem to be MANY Patrick HIggins out there

21:30:48 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: pjhiggins are you multiplying again?

21:30:56 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: April-how did you manage the student posting? Were they required to post on specific topics? Was it voluntary?

21:30:58 diane -> -EdTechTalk: Talk about transparency – I keep my dark side hidden!

21:31:20 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: i would never have thought dianne!

21:31:29 diane -> -EdTechTalk: I am very deep

21:31:33 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: in my mind the teacher WAS in antarticia during the podcast — and don’t tell me otherwise πŸ™‚

21:31:36 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: πŸ™‚

21:31:38 pjhiggins -> -EdTechTalk: Now I have that song from Eddie and the Cruisers in my head.

21:31:39 april w -> -EdTechTalk: sorry all I have been a bit out of it in responding

21:31:39 diane -> -EdTechTalk: Unplumbed depths

21:32:02 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: You’re so right Darcy. every day should be earth day. But sometimes awareness-raising promotions help to jumpstart things.

21:32:05 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: @pjhiggins sing a few bars

21:32:06 april w -> -EdTechTalk: with students posting at first I required them to post during the getting started phase

21:32:08 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: I have only had two parents in the class object to their child picture being on our web site.

21:32:29 april w -> -EdTechTalk: yet as time went on I left it more open because it evolved this way

21:32:36 pjhiggins -> -EdTechTalk: Have a cold–would sound terrible. Hoping to not sound too bad this evening.

21:32:40 april w -> -EdTechTalk: plus the kids were so into it there wasn’t a need to require it

21:32:48 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: Those two student were really disappointed that they couldn’t be in the picture

21:33:16 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: hi again kathy

21:33:25 sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: hi again welcomer!

21:33:27 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: Peggy — your question is coming up

21:33:27 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: @pj You too? I have no voice anymore!

21:33:46 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: If parents can see and hear you’re doing, they are more likely agree next time.

21:34:01 diane -> -EdTechTalk: LOL

21:34:03 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: lol

21:34:08 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: That’s a great way to get them started–I think they get hooked on blogging once they start reading the comments.

21:34:20 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: not my experience James

21:34:32 diane -> -EdTechTalk: Do you grade grammar and spelling?

21:34:48 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: maybe some day, but resistant so far

21:34:53 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: Hey iScott!!

21:34:57 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: hi iscott

21:35:07 iscottanderson -> -EdTechTalk: Hi all

21:35:13 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: @diane no

21:35:15 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: nice to see you Scott

21:35:17 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: @ Durff Are most of the resistant ones the ones that don’t use the internet at home?

21:35:20 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: Diane — we are asking your question NOW

21:35:27 diane -> -EdTechTalk: How free are the students to express their opinions?

21:35:34 pjhiggins -> -EdTechTalk: diane, dana huff had a great post about teaching poetry that included links to some great books on teaching writing. I wonder if blogging will be treated as a separate subject in future writing texts?

21:35:36 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: @James like everyone? no

21:35:38 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: It sounds like once the students saw a real purpose for posting as a way to communicate they really got into it! Awesome!

21:36:02 sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: can we view the blog

21:36:13 diane -> -EdTechTalk: It needs to be in our NYS Standards – I will be pushing for that.

21:36:14 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: Comments really makes blogging come alive

21:36:15 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: @pj it’s not – composition is the same no matter where it is done

21:36:20 sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: I may hav emissed the link

21:36:25 pjhiggins -> -EdTechTalk: or I wonder if texts will be included in teaching writing in the future?

21:36:47 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: Patrick — your comments are going to be a great segue when we call you up

21:36:52 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: What kind of texts? you mean IM?

21:36:52 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: you ask qts that are so deep

21:36:53 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: http://core04science.learnerblogs.org/

21:36:58 ColetteC -> -EdTechTalk: student’s writing changes when they know they have an audience

21:37:20 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: I have heard that NZ recognizes and accepts text chat (IM speak) on their exams and formal assignments

21:37:22 diane -> -EdTechTalk: How many will be allowed to have a broad audience?

21:37:27 pjhiggins -> -EdTechTalk: No, I mean books.

21:37:36 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: ahh…. written text

21:37:50 diane -> -EdTechTalk: Walled blogs no better than written essays in class

21:38:00 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Peer review can be very powerful!

21:38:18 pjhiggins -> -EdTechTalk: We are at the point where we are offfering laptops to departments in lieu of textbooks if they want them.

21:38:29 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: @diane Interesting. I had wondered about walled off blogs

21:38:37 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: @pj wow that is neat

21:38:41 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: @pjhiggins – would you believe that the blog form (and forums and other online writing) have been included in the standardized exams here in Quebec this year

21:38:44 derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: @diane i think that there is more community within the class either walled or public

21:38:51 pjhiggins -> -EdTechTalk: so far, very few takers.

21:38:57 diane -> -EdTechTalk: Laptops banned for students, iffy for staff because circumvent filter

21:39:01 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: i’ll take 25

21:39:04 pjhiggins -> -EdTechTalk: Sharon, that’s great.

21:39:20 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: send ‘sm here

21:39:35 pjhiggins -> -EdTechTalk: lol

21:39:37 diane -> -EdTechTalk: I agree, if interaction. Building a community, even if limited numbers

21:39:41 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: @pjhiggins – While I was excited, I wondered if the teachers were prepared for that – are they adequately preparing their students for the exam??

21:39:56 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: yeah pam!

21:40:04 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: The students we heard seemed to be very passionate about ways to save the earth! They want to talk about it!

21:40:16 diane -> -EdTechTalk: Our faculty has no incentive to innovate.

21:40:23 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: @sharon why prepare for a test?

21:40:38 khokanson -> -EdTechTalk: @peggy that is SO true…. I think kids sometimes get it more than WE do

21:40:42 derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: @peggyg i agree

21:40:44 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: @diane Filters won’t cut it. Digital Citizenship education needed too

21:40:59 ColetteC -> -EdTechTalk: One reason students are passionate about Earth Day and this topic in general is b/c they feel like they can actually do something about it

21:41:00 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: @James so agree

21:41:06 diane -> -EdTechTalk: Hate filters, but district scared of CIPA

21:41:18 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: @Durff – It is a different kind of exam… over several days, lots of response and peer review – very humane – but have we prepared our students about appropriate online communication where critical thinking skills are necessary and required??

21:41:26 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: @Colette i think you have sth there

21:41:57 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: The students weren’t just talking about things for the show-they were committed to continuing on to make a difference no matter how small it might seem.

21:42:00 iscottanderson -> -EdTechTalk: has anyone every been aduited for CIPA compliance?

21:42:18 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: @diane filters helps accidentally stumbling onto inappropriate sites, but that is their limit.

21:42:33 diane -> -EdTechTalk: State Police warned our admin about YouTube. Now blocked

21:42:35 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: @sharton ah! i think it was so evident to me today that i need to do a much better job of preparing my students with digital citizenship skills

21:42:43 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I loved the wrapup-reminded me of the wrapup after the k12online conference.

21:43:02 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: that is lorna’s quote

21:43:07 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: not durff

21:43:16 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: @diane – what a shame… hope you can still discriminately download teh good videos and share with your students

21:43:21 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: @diane What!? what did State Police warn about Youtube?

21:43:54 diane -> -EdTechTalk: I do what I can. Only allowed to use TeacherTube & SchoolTube. Very spare resources.

21:43:57 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: @Diane — I would suggest that you request a voice with the State Police — or at least write a letter asking for clarification on why a blanket rule

21:44:16 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I missed the middle of the night too but will definitely check out the recordings!

21:44:20 pjhiggins -> -EdTechTalk: Youtube v. "The Man"

21:44:29 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: one can download youtube videos using zamzar.com and then show the students from a flash drie

21:44:36 diane -> -EdTechTalk: Scare tactics. Kids can get around filter, if they choose. It’s a challenge.

21:44:49 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: There are so many great videos on Youtube, and many great resources

21:44:52 ColetteC -> -EdTechTalk: the promo video was great

21:45:02 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: I agree, youtube has so much good stuff

21:45:15 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: The mp3 transitions with the public serice announcements were so smooth and connected everything together

21:45:44 sheila -> -EdTechTalk: The PSA is a video too.

21:45:48 diane -> -EdTechTalk: I know how to get around – but job could be in jeopardy it I do.

21:45:50 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: @Peggy I agree transitions were good

21:46:21 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: The many accents were delightful and really made you feel you were connected worldwide–we were!

21:46:52 diane -> -EdTechTalk: I car pool; read Clifford story to younger students re. Earth Day

21:46:57 cheri t -> -EdTechTalk: we’re driving Prius’ and riding our bikes πŸ™‚ … when it’s not snowing

21:46:59 ColetteC -> -EdTechTalk: I listened last night to the hour about Earth Day grocery bag project – great for elementary schools – http://www.earthdaybags.org/

21:47:04 diane -> -EdTechTalk: Is this the "proper" Patrick?

21:47:05 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: the global thing blew some minds at my school

21:47:15 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: Hmmmm is he proper?? Not sure

21:47:19 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: @cherit – so funny!

21:47:35 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: I want to do the Earth Day bags next year

21:47:39 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: and then hearing doug and pam on my speakers in the hallway

21:47:40 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I have so many links to go back and really explore. The YouTube video PSA was excellent! He is so talented!

21:47:45 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: We need to expand the EARTH DAY WIKI

21:47:52 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: and I agree EARTH DAY SHOULD NOT JUST BE TODAY!!

21:47:57 cheri t -> -EdTechTalk: thanks – see you all later – have a good earth evening

21:48:01 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: Night Cheri

21:48:04 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: bye cheri

21:48:06 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: NIght Cheri

21:48:29 diane -> -EdTechTalk: Ah, for a big chunk of money…

21:48:33 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: Wouldn’t the teachers then need to know how to use the laptops?

21:48:33 sheila -> -EdTechTalk: my skyped got tired – had to reboot

21:48:50 ColetteC -> -EdTechTalk: I want laptops instead of textbooks!!!!

21:48:56 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: @James i think they would

21:49:02 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: Me too!

21:49:03 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: If people continue to post their links and blog posts with earthcast08 it will definitely live on. A new photo album was started on Flickr with that tag.

21:49:11 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: @Colette me too!

21:49:25 pjhiggins -> -EdTechTalk: Hi Mike!

21:49:36 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: awww!

21:49:47 diane -> -EdTechTalk: Where do we get the money for the initial iinvestment in 1:1?

21:49:51 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: quite laughing Jen

21:50:05 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: Laughing?? I am choking!!

21:50:22 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: you were laughing at me wanting laptops

21:50:28 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: good cover

21:50:29 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: I don’t think so

21:50:34 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: I want laptops too

21:50:47 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: The paperless movement is such a challenge and moving so slowly–especially for teachers.

21:51:12 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: i’m ready

21:51:22 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: i use no txts now

21:51:25 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: I admit — I struggle tooo

21:51:25 diane -> -EdTechTalk: I’m ready, but admin want EVERYTHING backed up in paper

21:51:30 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: I like holding books

21:51:41 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: not me

21:51:49 diane -> -EdTechTalk: Library books are different πŸ™‚

21:51:52 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @diane-I know-we have so much "documentation" that is required!

21:51:53 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: and i am the ‘librarian’

21:52:07 diane -> -EdTechTalk: I am the library goddess!

21:52:21 diane -> -EdTechTalk: and the Current Events teacher

21:53:03 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: planon lunch if you can!!

21:53:05 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: i want to be a library goddess – where do i apply?

21:53:13 diane -> -EdTechTalk: It won’t be in our curriculum without a state mandate – teachers not invested yet

21:53:17 Lori A -> -EdTechTalk: lunch is at Tech Forum included

21:53:20 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: http://doug-johnson.squarespace.com/blue-skunk-blog/2008/4/22/machines-are-the-easy-part-now-a-free-download.html

21:53:29 diane -> -EdTechTalk: I will confer goddess status on you.

21:53:34 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: yep — we can sit at the same table

21:53:40 Lori A -> -EdTechTalk: we can find a table together with Anne and others

21:53:50 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: http://www.huffenglish.com/?p=535

21:54:02 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: thank you diane

21:54:12 derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: @diane here i thought that status difficult to earn

21:54:14 diane -> -EdTechTalk: Welcome to my cloud

21:54:21 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @speters-I’m moving more towards audible books for portability πŸ™‚

21:54:36 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: don’t rain on my parade derrall

21:54:48 janices -> -EdTechTalk: http://groups.diigo.com/groups/earth-day/ New group on Diigo by Mark Ahlness to gather earth day links

21:55:07 diane -> -EdTechTalk: Goddesses are created, not earned

21:55:31 derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: oh to be another gender

21:55:39 diane -> -EdTechTalk: Library Goddess is almost redundant.

21:55:42 janices -> -EdTechTalk: took me a long time to type that. Wouldn’t paste. πŸ™‚

21:55:55 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: lol

21:56:20 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: Ctrl+V allows me to paste in links

21:56:37 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I learned in one of the shows today that I could highlight a URL and drag it into the text line–happy camper πŸ™‚

21:57:09 janices -> -EdTechTalk: @PeggyG I’ll try that next time. Thanks.

21:57:18 pjhiggins -> -EdTechTalk: Thanks everyone!

21:57:21 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: Doesn’t diigo allow annotation of web pages?

21:57:25 chrisssve -> -EdTechTalk: sorry, arrived late. is the topic diigo?

21:57:32 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: It worked on my Mac when copy/paste didn’t work.

21:57:34 diane -> -EdTechTalk: speaking of Clay: how do you all feel about adult/student interaction online?

21:57:49 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: @PeggyG – it is a cool thing to grab a link and drop it in the chatroom

21:58:09 pjhiggins -> -EdTechTalk: Diane, it’s a discussion that has to occur. Lolita is a perfect medium for that discussion.

21:58:23 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @James.Sigler-yes, Diigo allows annotation of web pages and even addition of comments

21:58:34 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: speaking of CLAY — can we really put in presentation ideas for the Shanghai conference?? He said he had 3 accepted

21:58:48 diane -> -EdTechTalk: I agree – got it on ILL, beginning it tomorrow. I have online "granddaughters" now!

21:59:06 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: This was like earth day wrap-up #2. It has been great!

21:59:16 pjhiggins -> -EdTechTalk: Jen, I had this idea of hijacking a presentation from the other side of the world.

21:59:17 diane -> -EdTechTalk: Afraid to interact with my own students, have students in my Twitterverse

21:59:29 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: wow it is 9:59

21:59:37 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: how did that happen?

21:59:43 pjhiggins -> -EdTechTalk: Great conversation.

21:59:49 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: I agree this is like the penultimate Earth Day 2008 wrap up

21:59:55 janices -> -EdTechTalk: @Druff it’s only 6:59 πŸ™‚

21:59:57 diane -> -EdTechTalk: Gave Clay one suggestion, am sure I can come up with others!

21:59:59 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: converse?

22:00:13 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: so much to discuss about paradigm shifts and how to get educators around to thinking ti through

22:00:16 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: @janice i feel better now

22:00:23 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Never thought about chat meaning different things to different people-makes so much sense

22:00:46 pjhiggins -> -EdTechTalk: http://www.dangerouslyirrelevant.org/2008/04/make-something.html

22:00:49 derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: I threatened my students that they would have to deal with durff if they didn’t behave in the chat πŸ™‚

22:00:50 sroseman -> -EdTechTalk: twitter is becoming a verb

22:00:52 James.Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: chat wearing different lens…

22:00:56 pjhiggins -> -EdTechTalk: Loved this post today.

22:01:02 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: derrall!

22:01:08 diane -> -EdTechTalk: Twitter is education, social, Pd

22:01:09 derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: @durff it worked

22:01:18 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I noticed the teachers in the group making frequent reminders about getting on the topic πŸ™‚

22:01:19 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: i had a student in here and not a peep

22:01:30 sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: @pjhiggins – thanks for sharing that!

22:01:39 sheila -> -EdTechTalk: @peggyg – you are right

22:01:54 JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: what a whirlwind of a night

22:01:59 Durff -> -EdTechTalk: @derrall mine wouldn’t dare

22:04:44 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Do you have a theme for the NECC live podcast?

22:05:38 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Last year’s NECC podcast was so great because you captured the highlights of the conference from lots of different people! Maybe you should do a repeat of that!
