[19:25] AliceMercer: http://movingforward.wikispaces.com[19:25] sharonbetts: does anyone use Elgg
[19:25] JohnSchinker: I think Dave's maxed out on volume.
[19:26] AliceMercer: SB: nope
[19:26] davecormier: there are a few people who use it
[19:26] davecormier: i've grown very tired of it
[19:26] sharonp: I like the elgg idea
[19:26] JohnSchinker: It used to be a lot more popular than it is now.
[19:26] JohnSchinker: We're thinking about using it for portfolios
[19:26] davecormier: the interface has never gotten better
[19:26] sharonbetts: I believe it has wikis, blogs, forums etc. right? Why has it faded (ELGG)
[19:26] sharonp: but not sure I like the elgg itself
[19:26] Jeff Lebow: http://blog.meebo.com/?p=370[19:27] AliceMercer: Howdy, Riptide
[19:27] AliceMercer: I have NO idea?
[19:27] AliceMercer: I just saw it....

[19:27] JohnSchinker: http://www.podcastingnews.com/2007/10/31/university-opens-dedicated-podcasting-room
[19:27] AliceMercer:

[19:28] AliceMercer: lisa, maybe we can try to do tomorrow's planning event with meebo?
[19:28] sharonp: Sharon, you DON'T want Sakai or Open CMS - trust me on that!
[19:28] AliceMercer: Wait, arent' we using Meebo NOW JL?
[19:28] Durff: don't count on my mic working
[19:28] Riptide Furse: Hi Alice

[19:28] Durff: i think it is out for the count
[19:28] sharonbetts: My staff really likes Meebo and we use it for in-service back channel (no voice)
[19:29] JasonR: Do they help with posting the podcast?
[19:29] AliceMercer: SB: it's blocked in my district
[19:29] davecormier: http://techchannel.att.com/site/home/index.cfm
[19:29] sharonbetts:
there is so much going ad free for teachers - Voicethread
[19:29] sharonp: I am really hip on wikis - have you considered media wiki, Sharon?
[19:29] Durff: i'm in here twice
[19:29] sharonbetts: sharonp - yes, I have considered about 5 different ones. I love wikis
[19:29] AliceMercer: OUCH< you kill me

[19:30] Durff: clicked on what?
[19:30] JenM4: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5648
[19:30] sharonbetts:
I need to be able to seamlessly use wikis and blogs - we use Moodle, but the blogs are non-existant and the wiki poor.
[19:30] CNelson: what>
[19:30] AliceMercer: Sarcasm?
[19:30] Durff: clicked on sarcasm?
[19:30] AliceMercer: WOW!
[19:30] sharonbetts: I like screencast-o-matic
[19:31] sharonbetts: and of course Jing
[19:31] sharonp: I agree, Sharon - the wiki is weak in moodle - it is even lamer in Sakai
[19:31] AliceMercer: Cause I think still screenshots are better than streaming video of screen...
[19:31] davecormier: good debate on alex's blog about this right now sharonbetts...
[19:31] Durff: click-o-casm
[19:31] CNelson: lol\
[19:31] Jeff Lebow: http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20071030-prof-replaces-term-papers-with-wikipedia-contributions.htm
[19:31] CNelson: lol
[19:31] sharonbetts: LInk to alex's blog
[19:31] sharonp: but I like the fact that so much already integrates into a wiki - video, chat, images, etc
[19:31] AliceMercer: Lack of relevance.
[19:32] Jeff Lebow: http://vimeo.com
[19:32] AliceMercer: That'll teach 'em
[19:32] sharonbetts: Yes, wikis can almost be everything - but no quizes
[19:32] davecormier: sharon... i'll do it on the next round

[19:35] JasonR: /me having difficulty figuring out the copyrights on some archive.org material
[19:35] Gary: Vimeo - when you join it becomes your home page?
[19:35] sharonp: who hosts archive.org?? Isn't it Stanford or one of those Cali universities?
[19:35] AliceMercer: I'm having a horrid time finding place to store audio. Any ideas?
[19:35] sharonbetts: Nice - archive.org

[19:38] Jeff Lebow: http://sketchcast.com[19:38] Durff: sharon youtube is NOT appropriate for education
[19:38] JasonR: Education is not appropriate for YouTube
[19:38] Durff: period

[19:39] sharonbetts: Durff -- this script is for installing your own media server
[19:39] Jeff2: http://www.stevehargadon.com/2007/11/big-news-from-ning-ad-free-student.html
[19:39] sharonp: Durff - don,t throw the baby out with the bath water - there are some awesome tutorials and the like on youtube
[19:39] AliceMercer: Jeff: don't forget, no Ning for under 13 or it's in limbo
[19:39] sharonbetts: There is a bit of issue with Ning - they are balking with younger kids
[19:39] AliceMercer: YEP
[19:39] Durff: tough
[19:39] JasonR: sharonp: agreed
[19:39] JenM4:http://education.ning.com/forum/topic/show?id=1027485%3ATopic%3A10101
[19:39] arthus: my Meebo room broke?
[19:40] sharonbetts: I am still waiting to see if they will ok my k12 ning
[19:40] Durff: naked women do NOT belong in the middle of any classroom
[19:40] CNelson: ºDurff I used a news blurb about the woamn Jammie Thoams who was convicted for illegally downloading in a very effective lesson on ethical use
[19:40] AliceMercer: Nope I didn't
[19:40] CNelson: right from youtube
[19:40] AliceMercer: I wanted to but won't
[19:40] sharonbetts: what is naked women - I pushed a link to install your own media server - run your own YouTube in house intranet
[19:40] JohnSchinker: http://www.writingfix.com[19:40] sharonbetts: did I ever get Alex's blog
[19:41] CNelson: you can pull yutubes down using zamzar
[19:41] davecormier: poor john... who skipped him
[19:41] AliceMercer: Hey someone was reading Brian Crosby
[19:41] davecormier: Sharon... it's next!
[19:41] sharonp: saying all of youtube is objectionable is like saying all print media is bad because of pornography and propaganda
[19:41] davecormier: next!
[19:41] Durff: why bother - use teachertube
[19:41] JasonR: durff: depends on what classroom. Art history???
[19:41] CNelson: or that pencils are dangerous tools
[19:41] sharonbetts: I download lots of YouTube and republish them for teachers
[19:41] AliceMercer: Sharon, you don't put the whole newstand in an elementary library
[19:41] CNelson: me too Sharon
[19:41] sharonbetts: I also really use TeacherTube a lot.
[19:41] JohnSchinker:http://www.businessblogconsulting.com/2006/12/how-to-subscribe-to-a-blog-feed
[19:41] arthus: @JasonR art history isn't in elementary
[19:41] CNelson: you tue has a lot of Hot issues for current events classes
[19:42] AliceMercer: I like YouTube, I wish they would unblock for teachers, but having k-6 wandering there in my lab would be a PITA
[19:42] sharonp: exactly, Alice - one uses media discriminately
[19:42] CNelson: great discssion starters and debate starters
[19:42] sharonbetts: Alice - newstand? I think my link to http://www.entertainmentscripts.com
[19:42] arthus: how is RSS hard to understand?
[19:42] sharonp: I think youtube should be unblocked for teachers, not for students
[19:42] JasonR: should be. But the statement was any classroom
[19:42] sharonbetts: My teachers are finally getting RSS
[19:42] Durff: yes jason in all k12 - we are not trying to chase people away - we are trying to pull people into the echo chamber - what better way to get parents to close their minds?
[19:42] CNelson: when u haven't experienced rss it is
[19:43] Durff: RSS is great
[19:43] CNelson: what is the best way to intro rss OTHER than common craft
[19:43] Durff: dave!

[19:44] JohnSchinker: RSS info: http://staff.bbhcsd.org/schinkerj/archives/2007/06/20/summer-renewal-3-read-the-feed
[19:44] leebaber: I agree
[19:44] sharonbetts: I have installed DRupal - but eventually went to Joomla for the site - we also have Moodle. Looking for the correct blog and wiki solutions. And then how to combine them
[19:44] arthus: I disagree, WordPress has a great API
[19:45] leebaber: Yours is looking so good
[19:45] Durff: in my classes we check our rss before we do the day's work
[19:45] JenM4:http://www.poptech.com[19:45] sharonp: wish we would use drupal
[19:45] JohnSchinker: Lots of wordpress stuff breaks when they upgrade it though, which they do every four months

[19:45] leebaber: yep
[19:45] leebaber: I may have sent it to you jen

[19:46] davecormier: it's a fantastic blogging platform
[19:47] JohnSchinker: Yeah. Wordpress is still worth the trouble, but I try to keep the number of plugins I use to a manageable level
[19:47] davecormier: plugging thigns into it gets messy over teh long haul
[19:47] JenM4: to add links for next week ... tag them as "for:edtechtalk" when in del.icio.us
