19:12:51 Gary -> Does "competitive" mean "political"?

19:14:24 Bud Hunt -> Not necessarily, Gary.  The intention is that it's a merit based competition.

19:15:28 Gary -> Thanks Bud - I am similar to Dave in that I do not completely understand the American education system.

19:15:54 bcrosby -> Hmmm, can't hear ... 

19:16:26 Gary -> @bcrosby - Use EdTech Talk A

19:16:41 jeffmason -> forget sleep

19:17:27 bcrosby -> Thanks, got it!!!

19:17:55 PeggyG -> Race to the Top seems quite political from my vantage point--some states applied for extensions to see what made it through the first round...

19:19:59 bcrosby -> Harry Reid is my Senator, (his grandson is in my wife's class) ... we'll see what bug we can put in his ear too ... not that we have any real connection there ... but this would be worth trying.

19:28:05 dave -> i feel like i'm arguing against the rhizome... but that's not quite what i mean

19:28:16 robd -> Agreed...people can't understand social media until they do it for themselves and see the result

19:29:36 cyndidannerkuhn -> I will conact my congressman, all of them, than ks for alerting us to this issue.

19:33:43 bcrosby -> Thanks!

19:33:51 robd -> @peggyg - thanks

19:34:17 PeggyG -> I was at CUE during TedX and had to miss the live presentations so I can't wait to see the recordings!

19:34:46 cyndidannerkuhn -> I actually work with Michael Wesch, he is amazing

19:34:59 monika -> hey @peggyg - i need help - can't hear anything

19:35:55 Gary -> @monika - See EdTech Talk A at top left of page

19:36:04 Gary -> top right

19:36:20 JenM -> http://www.ted.com/pages/view/id/348

19:36:41 dawn -> @peggyG Thanks for the link

19:36:43 PeggyG -> if you click on EdTechTalk A it should open in a player--mine opens in iTunes

19:37:03 aforgrave (Andrew) -> TEDxOntarioEd is taking place April 9th in London, Ontario. 

19:37:03 bcrosby -> The "Ignite" programs are similar and are happening all over the country. I did one here in Reno last summer.

19:37:22 PeggyG -> the Ignite programs are similar but not all focused on education

19:37:37 jackiegerstein -> http://www.ted.com/tedx

19:37:45 tomfullerton -> lessig's is posted: http://blip.tv/file/3309463/

19:37:47 aforgrave (Andrew) -> http://www.mrhazzard.com/tedx/?page_id=11  TEDxOntarioEd

19:37:53 JenM -> @aforgrave ... ok ... great! another ED based tedx

19:38:08 cyndidannerkuhn -> so where is Chris' presentation posted, I would love to share it with my pre-service teachers.  link???

19:38:20 dendari -> Loved Dan Meyer

19:38:24 tomfullerton -> anyone have the link to chris's presentation?

19:38:35 bcrosby -> @PeggyG yes, but you can do whatever you want and I think it delivers an audience that educators don't always get to talk to.

19:38:52 jackiegerstein -> I found David Wiley's & Jeff Jarvis stimulating

19:38:55 PeggyG -> I agree bcrosby! I've attended the Ignite Phoenix events

19:39:53 bcrosby -> I don't think their presos are up yet ... to be posted in future.

19:40:09 JohnS -> http://www.invisiblechildren.com/home.php

19:40:15 jackiegerstein -> http://weblogg-ed.com/2010/tedxnyed-amazingso-what/

19:40:37 jackiegerstein -> Yes - invisible children is great!

19:40:47 bcrosby -> Hi Dean!

19:40:57 monika -> we have one of their kids coming to our school mar 18

19:41:08 shareski -> Hi, going to make chicken wings and listen to the brilliance of Mr. Zac

19:41:53 bcrosby -> D'Arcy had a post about Ted a few weeks back ... maybe you already talked about that though

19:41:58 JohnS -> Shareski in the chatroom? I'm star stuck.

19:42:54 shareski -> @JohnS you must be watching the Oscars

19:43:02 dave ->  wonder if shareski left the bbq for long enough to listen to tedx yesterday

19:43:24 JohnS -> Aren't the Neighbours having an Oscar party, Dean?

19:43:44 shareski -> @John, they just left..we entertained for a change

19:44:00 jackiegerstein -> http://teleogistic.net/2010/03/whats-wrong-with-tedxnyed/  Blog

19:44:38 robd -> it was probably the conversations in between the lectures that were more interesting

19:44:47 tomfullerton -> lectures to adults by inspirational speakers is different than K-12

19:44:53 aforgrave (Andrew) -> but there was considerable chatter between listeners enabled via tech -- different dynamic from traditional ???

19:45:28 jackiegerstein -> I love a good lecture - but do good lectures facilitate change?

19:45:47 aforgrave (Andrew) -> anyone in the audience yesterday in NY?  passive listeners, or a lot of folks simultaneously in the room and online

19:45:49 bcrosby -> Sir Ken Robinson, supposedly says  he spent 100 hours prepping his Ted talk on Creativity that is so popular.

19:45:53 JohnS -> yes, but there are times when lectures to K12 can be just as inspirational. It just doesn't happen every day with every teacher.

19:45:54 shareski -> lecture=presentation=communication it's what we do everyday...just that we want to give lots a chance to "lecture"....and not for 45 minutes straight

19:46:23 robd -> a good lecturer is very rare

19:46:26 JohnS -> @bcrosby I've spent 100 hours on many presentations that went significantly less well.

19:46:27 jackiegerstein -> I think we need to differentiate between lecture and discourse

19:46:53 bcrosby -> The Ted talk "lectures" , at least the most popular ones, are also highly entertaining.

19:47:07 robd -> @jackiegerstein - what IS the difference between lecture and discourse?

19:47:23 Gary -> Maybe we need to sit around the campfire more often.

19:47:31 bcrosby -> @JohnS - really? 100 hours on an 18 minute preso?

19:47:32 tomfullerton -> we can lecture effectively in K-12 but it is over-used by less inspirational speakers

19:47:51 JohnS -> @brcrosby mine was 45 minutes, but yes.

19:47:51 robd -> @gary Aren't we sitting around a campfire right now?

19:47:54 shareski -> Zac's recent post about his student giving a lecture was pretty amazing

19:48:11 jackiegerstein -> @rob - one way vs. two way communication - awareness of presence of the other - voice by both sides

19:48:20 tomfullerton -> this pendulum swing in ed'l reform - lecture is "bad" lecture is "good" .....

19:48:26 tomfullerton -> can be both

19:48:30 Gary -> @robd - Good point! More often?

19:48:35 bcrosby -> Wow! 

19:48:44 jackiegerstein -> We are engaged in discource

19:48:48 jackiegerstein -> discourse

19:48:52 tomfullerton -> how is this affected by the backchannel?

19:48:58 robd -> i wonder if you have to be a good listener before you can be a good lecturer?

19:49:09 tomfullerton -> do we enter into an asynchronous / synchronous discourse?

19:49:11 jackiegerstein -> Twitter during the talks yesterday made it more engaging for me

19:49:36 bcrosby -> I can't even imagine having 100 hours to spend on a presentation.

19:49:36 aforgrave (Andrew) -> What about the "expert" dynamic created by the lecturer --- yesterday, Jeff Jarvis welcomed "the people formerly known as the audience," acknowledging the changing role of the "listeners" ...

19:49:49 robd -> @jackiegerstein Yep, I enjoyed Twitter watching while sitting at the CUE conference in California where they were talking in NY

19:50:04 jackiegerstein -> isn't it such fun, Rob?!?

19:50:06 bcrosby -> Not even 10 hours ... 

19:50:09 JenM -> all the links we won't get to tonight ... http://delicious.com/edtechtalk/20100307

19:50:11 PeggyG -> oooohhhh robd! what a great multitasker!!

19:52:25 robd -> Doesn't YouTube have some type of feature that makes transcripts from recordings?

19:52:45 PeggyG -> you have to provide the transcript for YouTube to get the captions on dotsub
