2009-10-27 14:08:52 [Message] LesleyE -> -EdTechTalk: We're experimenting with twitter school acct. (seycove) and district group accts.  Also tried Edmodo.
2009-10-27 14:09:22 [Message] daibarnes -> -EdTechTalk: not used edmodo myself - means getting others involved and so many projects on the go with teachers short of time
2009-10-27 14:10:37 [Message] alex.ragone -> -EdTechTalk: http://twitter.com/roxburylatin
2009-10-27 14:10:48 [Message] alex.ragone -> -EdTechTalk: Great list of other school twitter accounts here.

2009-10-27 14:13:48 [Message] bryanhughes -> -EdTechTalk: The Twitter accounts of schools in our district tend to be broadcast only, not much conversation. Was a 2 way conversation considered as part of the social media plan?
2009-10-27 14:13:53 [Message] VinnieV -> -EdTechTalk: using cotweet and friendtweet for aggregation.
2009-10-27 14:14:08 [Message] alex.ragone -> -EdTechTalk: FriendFeed: http://friendfeed.com/
2009-10-27 14:14:15 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: the facebook fan page is an effective model compared to groups...it is slick how posts show up in individual news streams
2009-10-27 14:14:34 [Message] daibarnes -> -EdTechTalk: @matt agreed
2009-10-27 14:14:38 [Message] alex.ragone -> -EdTechTalk: CoTweet: http://cotweet.com/

2009-10-27 14:15:21 [Message] arvind -> -EdTechTalk: "if we were having a conversation and I walked away from you you would stop talking to me"
2009-10-27 14:15:32 [Message] arvind -> -EdTechTalk: are you "talking" to your parents and alumns?
2009-10-27 14:15:38 [Message] sheilakarr -> -EdTechTalk: well Arvind, I would yell at you.....

2009-10-27 14:19:19 [Message] arvind -> -EdTechTalk: I am anxious to set us up with a Facebook fan page. I feel like I'm not even sure who all the constituents are to talk to first with the administration. But I know parents, students and alumnae would follow, but I'm interested in marketing to prospective students and parents, too

2009-10-27 14:20:05 [Message] arvind -> -EdTechTalk: Whitehouse.gov is a great model to follow: http://www.whitehouse.gov/ Look at their "Stay Connected" box on the rightt side
2009-10-27 14:20:25 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: i am here - people just keep talking to mw
2009-10-27 14:20:48 [Message] alex.ragone -> -EdTechTalk: Durff -- We understand that you have to talk!
2009-10-27 14:21:13 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: i don't really - i could be a deafmute
2009-10-27 14:21:17 [Message] alex.ragone -> -EdTechTalk: Content creation -- cotweet -- Multiple people post tweets to one account. 
2009-10-27 14:21:28 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: @arvind... yeah, I hear you...our library started one and took the lead...now our school started one. We have a mix of parents, students, alumni, community members, etc in both fan pages...it is kinda cool...
2009-10-27 14:21:30 [Message] alex.ragone -> -EdTechTalk: @durff ;-)
2009-10-27 14:21:56 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: photos are best loaded on a 3rd party site...then they can be embedded in 20 different places
2009-10-27 14:21:59 [Message] sheilakarr -> -EdTechTalk: content is real market maker (OR NOT)
2009-10-27 14:22:11 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: using the website proprietary media storage really is limiting
2009-10-27 14:22:20 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: it also locks you into that CMS
2009-10-27 14:22:38 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: distributing media to the services taht handle it well is an EXCELLENT strategy
2009-10-27 14:22:50 [Message] alex.ragone -> -EdTechTalk: Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/user/roxburylatintube
2009-10-27 14:23:09 [Message] daibarnes -> -EdTechTalk: i agree - 3rd party services are much more flexible than one CMS
2009-10-27 14:23:57 [Message] daibarnes -> -EdTechTalk: http://twitter.com/stbenedicts all the last tweets are generated from flickr account and posterous blog account of school tour blog
