21:13:58 sharonp : thanks Vince, my next point

21:18:48 Durff : i liked his post
21:19:12 Diane Hammond : I didn’t notice that I was Canadian, except that i don’t have a funny accent.
21:19:13 JenniferW : welcome Vince
21:19:23 Durff : can i ignore guest478?
21:19:30 Diane Hammond : The issues we discussed were not American.
21:19:38 JenniferW : LOL — you could but now that you have announced it — LOL — kinda rude 🙂
21:20:03 Durff : exactly
21:20:06 guest478 : google search for "nicecast host echo" first response
21:20:19 Diane Hammond : Issues such as large-scale assessment driving instruction pertain to Canada as well as the US.
21:21:43 guest478 : it certainly is…
21:21:43 guest478 : Montreal is a pretty good town
21:21:55 Durff : yes!
21:22:01 Diane Hammond : Edubloggercon by nature I think is more international than NECC itself.
21:22:13 Diane Hammond : Montreal is a great place for a conference!!!
21:22:53 sharonp : good point Diane!!
21:23:39 guest478 : is this graham wegner you’re talking about/
21:23:40 guest478 : ?
21:23:46 vincej : yes
21:23:48 Durff : me?
21:23:50 Diane Hammond : NECC is not promoted in Canada.
21:23:51 Durff : yes
21:24:02 guest478 : he’s a little touchy about the US centered thing http://gwegner.edublogs.org/2006/12/29/grahams-non-authorative-2006-list-of-stuff/
21:24:02 sharonp : I agree Diane
21:24:05 guest478 : 🙂

21:24:30 Durff : jan 26th
21:24:34 vincej : NECC wa sin Philly 2 years ago
21:24:34 Colleen : Philly gets my vote!
21:24:41 Colleen : Too bad.
21:24:47 Durff : you coming?
21:24:54 Diane Hammond : NECC is also pretty expensive and school boards tend not to fund out of country conferences.
21:24:58 vincej : sure
21:24:59 Durff : educon20?
21:25:00 JenniferW : Philly is again in 5 years I believe

21:45:06 JenniferW : Hey Doug
21:45:17 Durff : ME!
21:45:18 Diane Hammond : Great idea!
21:45:49 DS : the other thing for conferencing of note, like NECC
21:46:08 DS : is to make sure that media is archived for those who would like/can’t make it
21:46:24 DS : of course that’s licensed by the respective assoc, but….
21:46:29 Durff : and don’t depend on
21:46:29 JenniferW : http://svr43.ehostpros.com/~theblo43/
21:46:35 JenniferW : that is the blogger’s cafe link
21:46:43 JenniferW : it should resolve in the next 24 hours

21:47:02 Durff : really?
21:47:11 Durff : JDub?
21:47:24 Durff : Hi Karen
21:47:31 KarenJanowski : Hi, all!
21:47:41 KarenJanowski : almost forgot about WOW tonight!
21:47:46 KarenJanowski : what’s the topic?
21:47:49 JenniferW : JDub — tis ME
21:47:53 Durff : NECC
21:47:55 JenniferW : Karen — we are doing a recap
21:48:01 KarenJanowski : excellent!
21:48:02 JenniferW : we are chatting about Twitter.com
21:48:24 Durff : Twitku
21:48:33 Durff : not Twitter
21:48:41 Durff : but Twitku
21:49:12 Durff : it’s community
21:50:17 Diane Hammond : So how big do you want your twitter network to be?
21:50:21 KarenJanowski : so Twitter worked great at NECC – how about in our classrooms?
21:50:34 Diane Hammond : do you turn down twitter requests?
21:50:35 Durff : it could
21:50:44 sharonp : I think Jeff has something like 150 peeps in his twitter network
21:50:47 Durff : but i like meebo for kids
21:51:00 sharonp : I am careful with my twitter requests
21:51:02 KarenJanowski : what do you see as the difference?
21:51:09 Diane Hammond : Do "complete strangers" ask to be added to your twitter network?
21:51:20 sharonp : haven’t had too many complete strangers
21:51:25 Diane Hammond : do you check people out first?
21:51:36 sharonp : have had some corporate twitter users try to include me
21:51:41 Durff : meebo widget comes to me only
21:51:54 Durff : parents like that
21:51:58 sharonp : can be used as a positive form of backchanneling for students
21:52:12 DS : that Adam Frey show was great too! One of the "lost classics"
21:52:12 Durff : older
21:52:17 KarenJanowski : Durff – so more control?
21:52:25 Durff : yes
21:52:28 sharonp : like any tech tool – neither good nor evil, but how one uses it
21:52:33 KarenJanowski : that’s an advantage
21:53:00 Durff : middle school aren’t mature enogh for twitter
21:53:17 Durff : i had that level
21:53:28 Durff : last year
21:53:40 Durff : hi tracie
21:53:58 KarenJanowski : seems like all the "NECCites" came home changed people!!
21:54:12 Diane Hammond : I can see the value at a big conference like NECC, but i’m not so sure on a daily basis.
21:55:04 Durff : but diane-it keeps one in touch
21:55:21 Durff : connects us to other people
21:55:33 KarenJanowski : one of my concerns is that we are reducing the attention spans of our kids
21:55:35 Diane Hammond : I think i need to try it.
21:55:48 sharonp : good point Karen
21:55:48 Durff : ok – add me
21:55:55 KarenJanowski : i see that with my own kids – if a youtube video is longer than about four minutes, they skip it
21:56:09 DS : I had a someone send out a "social networks taking down LAN" article
21:56:13 KarenJanowski : too long
21:56:15 sharonp : this is the age we live in – instant gratification
21:56:20 DS : after a presentation re Facebook
21:56:22 KarenJanowski : yes!
21:56:37 DS : tonnes o’ resistance to IM and networks
21:56:41 Durff : i have a short span
21:56:48 Durff : think of kids
21:56:49 KarenJanowski : Durff – lol
21:56:55 sharonp : yes, there certainly is quite a lot of resistance
21:57:14 Durff : yea skype
21:57:17 KarenJanowski : DS – what is LAN?
21:57:24 Diane Hammond : That skype chat floored me!
21:57:25 DS : Local Area Network
21:57:27 DS : sorry
21:57:35 KarenJanowski : of course!
21:57:36 JenniferW : http://www.flickr.com/photos/jutecht/654358254/
21:57:41 DS : all sync stuff is "bad" in this model
21:57:43 Diane Hammond : I don’t think my brain can handle all the stimulus.
21:57:55 Durff : sure it can
21:58:04 DS : essentially diametrically opposed to what’s being discussed
21:58:08 Diane Hammond : with people who weren’t even there
21:58:10 DS : in terms of connections online
21:58:20 Durff : why?
21:58:55 DS : threatens the existing way of "doing business" — vested interests and all
21:59:03 Durff : oh
21:59:33 Durff : "because we have always done it that way" syndrome
21:59:39 DS : xactly
21:59:46 Durff : pooh
22:00:17 DS : sorry to hear that Sharon
22:01:18 KarenJanowski : the men were very active blogginga bout NECC
