   sharonp -> EdTechTalk thanks Alice

   vinnie -> EdTechTalk hey there vicki.

   Monica -> EdTechTalk Brian’s story is so great! He definitely has gone above and beyond!!!

   ElenaW -> EdTechTalk This is a cool story. His blog is great.

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk Isn’t it a wonderful story!

   cheryloakes wow -> EdTechTalk Isn’t this so engaging and motivating!

   jgarton -> EdTechTalk Inspiring.

   JenniferW -> EdTechTalk It has been a great week for his class

   JenniferW -> EdTechTalk to have Celeste back

   sharonp -> EdTechTalk yes, totally amazing and inspiring story – what a model for other kids who are ill!

   Monica -> EdTechTalk very exciting!

   sharonp -> EdTechTalk or handicapped

   Monica -> EdTechTalk do you think teachers would mind having skype on during their entire class sessions?

   ElenaW -> EdTechTalk The class learned empathy, belonging and inclusion in addition to technology.

   cheryloakes wow -> EdTechTalk Monica, let’s ask if teachers mind if their kids are listening during an entire class?

   CheriT -> EdTechTalk that is so cool – amazing

   DS -> EdTechTalk http//

   Monica -> EdTechTalk I just see this in the future, but it could present problems, too.

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk Brian is just wonderful…this is moving.

   CheriT -> EdTechTalk what type of problems?

   Monica -> EdTechTalk helicopter parents watching the teacher all day…. )

   CheriT -> EdTechTalk ahh

   JenniferW -> EdTechTalk LOL — those are the parents you WOULDn’t call

   JenniferW -> EdTechTalk via skype

   CheriT -> EdTechTalk )

   JenniferW -> EdTechTalk it isn’t a LIVE video for anyone — right

   JenniferW -> EdTechTalk you have to allow them in — which I think is a plus

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk Just the two people on the call.

   Durff -> EdTechTalk or the ones who threaten you

   cheryloakes wow -> EdTechTalk this kind of instruction and learning is seamless

   JenniferW -> EdTechTalk Yes Lisa — unless you set it up ONLY for those you invite

   JenniferW -> EdTechTalk which is what I have

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk You can only do video skype between two computers at this time from what I understand.

   jgarton -> EdTechTalk http// Google calendar directions

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk Thanks jgarton!

   Durff -> EdTechTalk I was trying to provide some comic relief

   JenniferW -> EdTechTalk Vicki — really??  I thought you could do more

   JenniferW -> EdTechTalk we shall have to see

   mmiller -> EdTechTalk I had Janetta copy and paste the calendar directions

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk On video I think it is just two but I could be wrong.

   JenniferW -> EdTechTalk LOL — Lisa– I was teasing back

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk We tried it a couple of months back but haven’t since Jan/Feb

   Durff -> EdTechTalk Did you see Operator ?

   JenniferW -> EdTechTalk I shall check

   cheryloakes wow -> EdTechTalk so far only  people on video, but now Operator  , right durff

   DS -> EdTechTalk two for video via skype, but something like operator would facilitate more

   Durff -> EdTechTalk Robin Good used that

jgarton -> EdTechTalk when I do my skype workshop this summer I plan
to share a portion of this podcast for inspiration. Thanks Brian!

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk Hmmm never heard of that.

JenniferW -> EdTechTalk Video calls are only possible with two
participants. Unfortunately, video conferences are not possible at the

   Durff -> EdTechTalk look it up vicki

   JenniferW -> EdTechTalk from SKYPE

   Durff -> EdTechTalk it’s cool

   JenniferW -> EdTechTalk Elluminate can have more than  — right??

mmiller -> EdTechTalk Janetta did Skype "teaser" workshop with our
th grade teachers and they really liked it. She called me on Skype into
my office.

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk But you could do it a little differently in something like elluminate.

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk The video in elluminate is like a walkie talkie — one at a time but everyone sees it.

   JenniferW -> EdTechTalk but could you use SKYPE & ELLUMINATE??

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk Why would you?

   mmiller -> EdTechTalk Now my teachers probably think I just sit in my office and skype people;)

   JenniferW -> EdTechTalk to allow overtalk

   Durff -> EdTechTalk at the same time?

   JenniferW -> EdTechTalk like tonight

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk WE use skype in our whole school — it is the best technology we’ve implemented in years.

   janices -> EdTechTalk It’s a great video!

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk We use IM and the phone feature like an intercom.

   janices -> EdTechTalk I showed it to my tech cadre during a Skype workshop. Very moving.

   JenniferW -> EdTechTalk did someone drop the LINK to the video yet???

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk I can find it, just a moment.

   Durff -> EdTechTalk no

   JenniferW -> EdTechTalk thank you

   cheryloakes wow -> EdTechTalk oh, I can’t wait to read the blogs

   Durff -> EdTechTalk http//

   JenniferW -> EdTechTalk Video can be ONE WAY

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk I’m an old newbie?  NOT!

CheriT -> EdTechTalk Monica, if only  person has a webcam, that’s

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk I like the  way idea.

   sharonp -> EdTechTalk  more days for me

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk Student sees the class, class sees the student.

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk I’ve taught class when I was home sick through elluminate AND skype.

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk And when I was gone to a conference.

   cheryloakes wow -> EdTechTalk vicki, did they call it a sick day?

   Monica -> EdTechTalk shouldn’t you rest when you’re sick….hmmm….

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk When I taught.

Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk I have a hard time resting, Monica but it
was the last day of the student summit for horizon and I made a promise
to the students.

   Durff -> EdTechTalk on Fri, the entire th
grtade received txts from Maegan that her mom ….so we had to tell
everyone else fast

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk That if we finished last Wednesday that we would build robots.

   Durff -> EdTechTalk that’s poweer

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk They called me at home to make sure we were still on for the summit.

   sharonp -> EdTechTalk  minutes to text!! It takes me AGES to use txt msging

   Durff -> EdTechTalk that’s potential

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk I like to keep my promises.

   cheryloakes wow -> EdTechTalk Durff, was that part of an emergency plan  you had at your school?

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk It was hard though, I did not feel well.

   Monica -> EdTechTalk that’s neat that the students called you….

   sharonp -> EdTechTalk wow, Vicki

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk We’re all very tired now, though.

   sharonp -> EdTechTalk can imagine – quite an ambitious pace

   jgarton -> EdTechTalk Vicki always the storyteller, good stories always )

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk What an incredible connection — Skype with wikis.  WOW!

   ElenaW -> EdTechTalk Authentic use of technology, real life.

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk Thanks jgarton.

Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk My quote of the day is this — "Most of us
are living our lives  miles wide and / an inch deep" — we need to live
deeper, more focused lives and be less spread out.

-> EdTechTalk and so many schools pay big bucks for expensive
software that don’t take students nearly as far as Brian does with his
students on  year old laptops

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk Yes!

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk It is not about spending a lot of money, it is about having a willingness!

   cheryloakes wow -> EdTechTalk my teachers are loving the  year old ibooks and having  in their classrooms.

   mmiller -> EdTechTalk I read about his  year old laptops and that was amazing

   sharonp -> EdTechTalk and good teaching/pedagogy

   mmiller -> EdTechTalk jgarton is an expert at finding ‘free’ stuff for us )

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk Absolutely, sharon — valid practices.

   sharonp -> EdTechTalk no replacement for excellent teachers!

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk and methodolgies
