     21:12:20      cheri t -> –     @Liz – thanks – we should work on something together
     21:12:21      JenW -> –     http://www.ustream.tv/channel/shiba-inu-puppy-cam
     21:13:59      JenW -> –     http://www.jenuinetech.com/bbfund.htm
     21:16:34      sharonp -> –     My big news – two more XO laptops donated to me to send to Africa… I was sooooo touched
     21:17:58      JenW -> –     excellent
     21:19:25      JenW -> –     http://sharonsshare.blogspot.com/
     21:20:38      Liz Kolb -> –     Do high school studnets like Ning or is it not close enough to Facebook/MySpace?
     21:20:43      JenW -> –     http://classroombraids.wikispaces.com/
     21:20:52      JenW -> –     Liz –I don’t know —
     21:21:04      JenW -> –     sorry
     21:21:49      cheri t -> –     @Liz – My guess is that HS students prefer what they use socially, not what we choose for them to use
     21:21:50      JenW -> –     DELICIOUS FOR TONIGHT:   http://delicious.com/WOW2.0/wow2_20081118
     21:21:52      sharonp -> –     hmmm…. you know, I think students tend to see onlien spaces used for education as not "their space" but a school space, but that’s okay… they like they are using online spaces for different purposes
     21:22:28      Cathy E -> –     Sharon, your site is full of great resources – can’t wait to dig deeper
     21:22:35      JenW -> –     http://classroombraids.wikispaces.com/Race-1
     21:22:50      sharonp -> –     wow, I want Sharon’s job!
     21:23:28      Liz Kolb -> –     I agree with Sharon, I wonder if they set up a separate facebook for a class project–so it would not intrude with their private space?
     21:23:55      sharonp -> –     it has been done!
     21:24:13      cheri t -> –     @Liz – I think a big issue is that they may not want "adults" in their space
     21:24:22      sharonp -> –     My school which doesn’t filter *anything* has decided to ban FB – as if it is the source of all evil
     21:24:30      JenW -> –     are you hearing distortion in the skype
     21:24:32      Liz Kolb -> –     Would love to know the student’s reactions.
     21:25:16      Liz Kolb -> –     @cheri agreed.  But I wonder if they should at least understand the public/private nature of the tool?
     21:26:18      JenW -> –     Hey @Paul
     21:26:26      paulrwood -> –     Good evening.
     21:26:54      cheri t -> –     @Liz – they really need that input – my undergrads don’t know how to participate in a professional discussion online
     21:27:34      cheri t -> –     any questions for Sharon B?
     21:27:37      Liz Kolb -> –     For Sharon B…what are some of the best web tools (besides wikispaces) that have been helpful for your project?
     21:28:22      Cathy E -> –     Time is the biggest issue –
     21:28:56      JenW -> –     listen for your question Liz in 20 seconds or so
     21:29:06      palmaada -> –     Thank you for letting me share in this session.  I am in awe of the good things that you all are doing.  You have motivated me tremendously!

     21:30:56      sharonp -> –     good point Paul!
     21:31:12      cheri t -> –     @Paul – uhhhh … that’s what I meant 🙂 … of course
     21:31:56      Liz Kolb -> –     Thanks Sharon
     21:32:45      paulrwood -> –     I do the same thing all the time.
     21:33:15      Cathy E -> –     I have been working with my teachers on a wiki for 3 years
     21:33:24      Cathy E -> –     finally some of them are coming around
     21:33:52      sharonp -> –     wow, so that is how long it takes for buy=in
     21:33:54      sharonp -> –     ?
     21:33:58      paulrwood -> –     Ugh! Homework!
     21:33:58      cheri t -> –     @Cathy E – congratulations!! It’s exciting to share in their excitement
     21:34:37      Liz Kolb -> –     Agree with @CathyE this is the first year (after 3 years) that my students are voluntarily using our Wiki

     21:36:29      sharonp -> –     I got the physics teacher not only into a moodle but into a wiki too
     21:37:06      Cathy E -> –     YOu Maine people are awesome
     21:37:09      cheri t -> –     My strategy has been to get the doc students on board – so when they GA with the faculty they drag them in
     21:37:27      tami -> –     @cheri That’s what we do!!
     21:37:43      cheri t -> –     Yea, Tami!!! Star doc GA
