21:08:57 dave: i can hear scott's text
21:09:15 dave: ah..
21:09:25 dave: did you get the recent mailout dave?

21:14:09 lee: my moodle is working well for my class content!
21:14:23 davelamorte: what do you use moodle for?
21:14:27 lee: i am only now starting to work all my kids into the elgg.
21:14:44 lee: I use it deliver my daily content
21:14:59 lee: also i add video tutorials and audio instructions
21:15:04 davelamorte: are you doing distance learning?
21:15:12 lee: well.. not really
21:15:58 davelamorte: I wonder if it would be better just to use tools that are on the net
21:16:12 davelamorte: this way we could teach about net ethics and net safety
21:16:28 dave: leigh blackall says that all the time
21:16:34 dave: i'm not sure i disagree with him
21:16:53 davelamorte: I'm just worried about kids not being prepared to deal with predators
21:17:09 dave:
21:17:19 dave: i completely agree with you dave
21:17:32 dave: the only problem is, in order to get access to those schools
21:17:33 davelamorte: I see it almost seems like not teaching about racisim
21:17:45 lee: the kids are in fact in my classroom but they are 8th graders and i feel that i need to use distance learning techniques to actually reach all of them at their many different levels
21:17:45 dave: we seem to need to create a semi-walled garden
21:18:07 lee: some can not read... some are so fast its done as i speak
21:18:13 lee: so i offer self pacing
21:18:16 lee: through moodle
