19:32:58 sharon -> I do most of those things
19:32:58 mrsdurff -> because they could be someone they are not
19:32:59 angela maiers -> WOW-that takes sooo long. I just need a face and a smile!
19:33:01 JohnS -> twitter.com/davecormier
19:33:01 Gary -> Some people like to try and keep and 1:1 ratio
19:33:16 angela maiers -> I do not follow Snooky Ukems231
19:33:20 sharon -> before I decide to follow them back .... bec I like to follow other teachers
19:33:33 mrsdurff -> yes dave is very entertaining
19:33:40 sharon -> but I do not want to follow EVERYBODY who follows me
19:33:48 JenWagner -> I made a fictious account on twitter -- had 250 followers before I closed it
19:33:50 Jackie G -> That's what I do
19:33:51 dgoodman -> I follow those that share interests I have and that I can learn and share with
19:34:07 sharon -> bec I may not know those people and am missing out
19:34:12 PeggyGeorge -> there are many reasons why you might not choose to follow people--why doesn't it make sense to learn more about them and consider following them?
19:34:35 angela maiers -> Exactly! There are many ways to use Twitter
19:34:37 Valaina -> now Dave has 907 followers  :)
19:34:47 Jason R -> http://friendorfollow.com/
19:34:48 JenWagner -> LOL -- lets get him up to 920 before this show is over
19:34:57 sharon -> I want to keep my numbers of who I follow down lower
19:34:59 Gail -> There are lots of reasons to blog
19:35:28 angela maiers -> He he speaking more about checking those you follow verses your followers
19:35:43 PeggyGeorge -> that's one of the reasons I really like tweetdeck!
19:35:44 JenWagner -> vs fans or friends in Plurk
19:35:50 Jackie G -> Wasn't there a recent article about quality vs. quantity via Twiter - I use it for professional development and don't need a constant report about their coffee breaks.
19:35:54 sharon -> I don't have time to check those I follow
19:36:03 angela maiers -> Nice segway!
19:36:19 JenM -> Rent a textbook: http://www.chegg.com/
19:36:21 JenWagner -> Twiterapy
19:36:22 jan smith -> I noticed that Classroom 2.0 chnaged to colleagues from "friends"

19:36:33 Jackie G -> It only takes a half minute to quickly go through their profile'
19:36:34 sharon -> check thru email
19:36:45 JenWagner -> quick -- is www.twiterapy.com taken   :)
19:36:47 sharon -> and sometimes it is like twit spam...
19:36:55 angela maiers -> Tweetdeck just today allows you to change the size of the columns-this is great. TWeetdeck took up the whole screen before!
19:36:55 dave -> @gail and @dgoodman i've done a fair amount of SL (etc) work... is there i can probably send on some resources
19:36:57 JL -> http://consumerist.com/5108356/teacher-confiscates-linux-discs-chides-ch...
19:37:30 Scott Shelhart -> Thanks Jen....have to buy books in a few weeks.

19:37:42 dgoodman -> @dave   yes...yes...yes
19:37:44 matt montagne -> one of my goals is to make up a CD with free software for our students to check out and take home...it will have the mac and pc versions...
19:37:48 Gary -> Like health care?
19:38:14 JohnS -> Eric: http://www.eric.ed.gov
19:38:20 mrsdurff -> that teacher put both feet in their mouth
19:38:31 Jackie G -> LOVE poptech - new TED type addiction -
19:39:01 Valaina -> @Matt Could you share those?
19:39:04 mrsdurff -> i remember ERIC
19:39:08 SusanEttenheim -> interesting matt- what are you planning to put on it?
19:39:11 sharon -> I am going a bit more subversive than that Matt - am showing my students portableapps and encouraging them to bring in their flash drives and I will install the apps on their flashdrive
19:39:12 mrsdurff -> on microfiche
19:39:12 PeggyGeorge -> @Scott let us know if you find your textbooks there--I'm curious whether it has the books people really need.
19:39:30 JenWagner -> Libraries -- wow
19:39:32 dave -> http://delicious.com/edtechtalk/secondlife
19:39:39 cnelson2@twcny.rr.com -> whats a library?
19:39:39 JenWagner -> I went to one of those once   :)
19:39:44 Jackie G -> What's a library?
19:39:47 JenWagner -> they had BOOKS
19:39:54 cnelson2@twcny.rr.com -> thought they were dead
19:39:57 sharon -> Drives me crazy that my students laptops are locked down and they can't chat, use audacity or skype.... on a flash drive.. they can
19:40:03 Jackie G -> Thanks Dave!
19:40:07 Valaina -> @Dave Thanks for the SL info link
19:40:08 dave -> http://serveraxis.com/
19:40:11 mrsdurff -> sharon - i show kids how to make their own flashdrives with free software
19:40:12 dgoodman -> @Dave  thanks..I have bookmarked it
19:40:21 Jason R -> <- sitting in the EdTechTalk sandbox in SL right now
19:40:35 sharon -> I discoverd portableapps for macs this week - WOOT!
19:40:49 dgoodman -> @durff   would love to know how you do this
19:41:00 JenWagner -> are you virtual or hybrid??
19:41:22 JenM -> Screencasting (and a reason to still love blogs): http://teachj.wordpress.com/2008/12/31/screencasting-solutions-on-a-budget/
19:41:25 Gail -> @Jason R How would I find that sandbox if I was in SL? Sorry if this is a stupid question
19:41:29 matt montagne -> @Valaina...when I'm done making up the CD, I'll definitely share all of the software that goes on there...it will be the usual suspects like Open Office, Jing, VLC, Skype, Firefox, Skitch (Mac), etc...of course the students can go get this all on their own, but this makes it a bit easier for them
19:41:38 dave -> @Jdub virtual
19:41:51 mrsdurff -> thank you server elves
19:41:59 SusanEttenheim -> thank you dave and jeff and server elves!!!

Blogging is dead?

Hey tech gang,

Thanks for your comments about blogging being dead! I can see how some might look at blogging this way, but for many of us who are still novices in working with tech, blogging is a great way of reflecting and improving how we implement technology into our daily teaching. Your comments have helped me to only post items on MY blog of web 2.0 apps and tools that I actually use in my classroom, not just a gloss over from check out their website.

I've learned more from one trip to NECC and subscribing to the many tech blogs in the past year than I have in 8 years of teaching and going to PD sessions! So for that reason, I appreciate people that are still blogging and sharing, which is why I did the same for my blog called "Journeys in 2.0 Teaching":

2pointohteaching.blogspot.com

Cheers!

Jared Nichol
Media Arts Teacher

Thanks

I really enjoy listening to your show. I was mystified by all the hits I was getting right after your show aired that were coming from this site. Thanks for the mention. I actually found your show via The Wicked Decent Learning podcast http://wickeddecentlearning.blogspot.com/
