EdTechTalk#66 - Upcoming Events, Global Learn Day & K-12 Online Conference

A conference-like EdTechTalk. The show started out with us talking about upcoming conferences-  a couple we'll be speaking at and webcasting from and a couple  that folks will be tuning in to. We were visited by John Hibbs, who talked to us about Global Learn Day 10 and  Wes Fryer who told us about the K12 Online Conference.
Are you ready for some conferencing?

10/1/06 19:41:33 JenniferW: i lost the skypecast link
10/1/06 19:41:47 jl: np, you're there
10/1/06 19:43:20 Sharon_Peters_(eebee1): Wes, I like your blog too! I may have even responded once or twice recently
10/1/06 19:43:38 Sharon_Peters_(eebee1): JenW was the one who passed along your blog
10/1/06 19:44:29 JenniferW: soooo cool
10/1/06 19:47:00 Sharon_Peters_(eebee1): That was going to be my question - how can I get my colleagues on board with this?
10/1/06 19:47:31 Sharon_Peters_(eebee1): apart from posting it as an email to them?
10/1/06 19:47:33 dave: i know my students (MEd) in the winter we're very resistant to things like this
10/1/06 19:48:20 dave: there's a certain feeling among many teachers that they are only going to do what they have to
10/1/06 19:48:23 dave: overworked
10/1/06 19:48:23 Cathy: I am hoping this will give me another avenue for staff development
10/1/06 19:48:35 dave: over-managed
10/1/06 19:48:35 Sharon_Peters_(eebee1): we have to take mandatory tech training at our school - maybe we can make this an option and provide release time....??
10/1/06 19:48:36 JenniferW: but since a lot is pre-recorded -- it isn't limited to just the 2 weekends -- right??
10/1/06 19:48:53 JenniferW: there will be an archive???
10/1/06 19:49:39 dave: yes
10/1/06 19:49:46 dave: there will be an archive
10/1/06 19:49:57 JenniferW: so, it is not limited to its potential

10/1/06 20:10:37 Sharon_Peters_(eebee1): I guess it hopped out one of those windows
10/1/06 20:10:41 wesleyfryer: they should host a skypecast instead

10/1/06 20:11:31 dave: after two people i tend to fall over
10/1/06 20:11:36 Sharon_Peters_(eebee1): time to set a record!
10/1/06 20:11:40 dave: and they can't be very heavy

10/1/06 20:11:48 JenniferW: LOL -- I am sure that is true
10/1/06 20:11:55 wesleyfryer: we bridged in landlines to the skypecast we did in july
10/1/06 20:12:06 JenniferW: now WES is your best friend!!!! :)
10/1/06 20:12:09 Sharon_Peters_(eebee1): good idea - what a great solution
10/1/06 20:12:14 wesleyfryer: I can start a skypecast and then dial in directly
10/1/06 20:12:40 JenniferW: now THIS is collaboration!!!
10/1/06 20:12:40 DougSymington: and I could do another for another 5 participants
10/1/06 20:13:46 lee: Hi John
10/1/06 20:15:10 JenniferW: could they use vyew???
10/1/06 20:15:16 JenniferW: there is a dial in option
10/1/06 20:15:24 wesleyfryer: i don't think vyew supports the audio
10/1/06 20:15:39 DougSymington: long distance charges apply in vyew
10/1/06 20:15:45 JenniferW: i havne't tried it -- but there is a dial in option

10/1/06 20:27:44 wesleyfryer: VOIP is an interesting topic to address for sure
10/1/06 20:28:12 wesleyfryer: my perception is that some companies who have been traditionally viewed as "phone companies" are reinventing themselves as data services companies
10/1/06 20:29:14 lee: ahhh yes
10/1/06 20:36:02 JenniferW: thanks for the chat -- gotta run
