17:16 JenM  http://www.protopage.com/elearning07
17:16 sharonp it made a HUGE difference in the wiggly-jiggly factor

17:21 davecormier yo
17:22 AliceMercer That could be interesting for you and and Durff Dave
17:23 AliceMercer Dave did I miss you talking about Archive project?
17:23 arthus busy building an open source WordPress package for education...
17:24 AliceMercer I did one at Edublogs
17:24 JL2 http://www.snapvine.com/
17:24 AliceMercer Miguel G is doing work on that
17:24 stevem We use an ELGG, plugged into moodle for portfolios

17:24 sharonp ooooh, that sounds very cool
17:25 JL2  http://www.jott.com
17:25 arthus I love Jott :)
17:25 davecormier where was that link Alice?
17:25 arthus had computer taken away... but was still able to tweet :P
17:25 JohnSchinker I was thinking elgg was the way to go, but wasn't sure if there was something newer & better
17:25 AliceMercer Oh, I have REVOLUTIONED my admin with Jott
17:25 arthus did anyone notice Jott integrated with Twitter?
17:25 arthus very nice...
17:25 JohnSchinker  http://notemesh.com/notemesh.php?a=home
17:25 AliceMercer The NPR on story corp, then you were going to talk about archive project in PEI
17:25 sharonp ahhh you Americans whose cell phone service is so cheap
17:26 AliceMercer Arthus, I heard about it.
17:26 sharonp those kinds of services would cost me a mint
17:26 AliceMercer Sharon, you have NO idea how ugly the documentation is with new speical educuation plan
17:26 davecormier yes... i couldn't remember that it was NPR
17:26 sharonp Alice, I shudder to imagine
17:27 AliceMercer John, anyone think of using that with conferences?
17:27 davecormier http://www.vmware.com/download/server/
17:27 sharonp my despair this week - we have a great education plan - based on multiple literacies.... took a look at the annual prov teachers' conference - NO web 2.0 - closest is someone offering to teach how to make webpages on geocities....!!!
17:27 SuzieQ what are you using at school at the moment. Arthus..I wonder if it jives with what you use out of school
17:28 JohnSchinker I think they're trying to keep it to postsecondary, but there's no reason why you can't just do the same thing with a wiki
17:28 AliceMercer I also put in a link for Jen Stark's paper sculpture, and Eric Gejarde's photostream of origami
17:28 SuzieQ that qustion was directed at arthus
17:28 SuzieQ question
17:28 arthus Suzie: what do u mean as in wat i'm using?
17:29 arthus using for....
17:29 AliceMercer Sharon, sounds like my online class. Scholastic pages for teachers or teacherweb
17:30 JL2 http://www.cogniview.com/convert-pdf-to-excel/post/conversion-central-101-tools-to-convert-video-music-images-pdf-and-more/
17:30 JL2 http://www.trueknowledge.com/
17:30 arthus uh... use Mac OS X :P
17:30 JenM having some skype issues ... sorry ... brb (I hope)
17:30 AliceMercer Hey, why didn't Premiere Elements read the Mac .mov file I uploaded? That's not an unusual format is it?
17:30 SuzieQ do you use the same web2.0 apps at school as you are using outside of school
17:30 AliceMercer Sorry, existential question
17:30 sharonp I looked at trueknowledge - very interesting
17:30 davecormier sorry Alice... too long for me to read live... will have to wait :P
17:30 JL2  http://googlereader.blogspot.com/2007/11/attack-of…
17:31 arthus @Suzie oh... lol... we don't use web 2.0 apps in school at all
17:31 JohnSchinker  http://wiredforbooks.org/index2.htm
17:31 arthus unfortunately we dont
17:31 AliceMercer Dave, the link or my link to story corp?
17:31 SuzieQ I thought so, arthus!!
17:31 AliceMercer How to change my color?
17:32 arthus why is there something saying "webcam ustream" over the text?
17:32 arthus over the stream
17:32 davecormier  http://librarianinblack.typepad.com/librarianinbla…
17:33 AliceMercer Dave, Hey I use that google reader to link list on my blog!
17:33 JL2 it's the webcam max logo
17:33 AliceMercer It's sweet!
17:33 JenM  http://www.boingboing.net/2007/11/05/wfmu-streamin…
... and ... http://www.sesamevault.com/mobile?campaign=deck&ad=3
17:33 JL2 haven't paid for it on that machine yet
17:33 arthus @JL2 oh... stupid Windows :P
17:33 AliceMercer Arthus, don't get me starte on MAC! I've had "issues" this week.
17:34 arthus you've had issues with your mac!? WHOAH
17:34 AliceMercer Dave Cormier: you want to do it another week?
17:34 SuzieQ Mac and issues..hard to believe
17:34 SuzieQ LOL
17:34 sharonp I object to the American exclusive coverage of iPhone....
17:34 arthus no longer...
17:35 arthus it's in Europe now...
17:35 arthus doncha know? :P
17:35 AliceMercer That proprietary thing is a PITA
17:35 AliceMercer Europe is NOT Canada
17:35 sharonp exclusive from Canadian
17:35 JL2  http://www.ustream.tv/channel/where-the-dust-settl…
17:35 sharonp s
17:35 SuzieQ one can hack an iphone so that it can be used here in Canada
17:35 JenM Yeah!!! NJ!! :)
17:35 arthus much better answer...
17:35 sharonp yes, have been eyeing them on ebay
17:35 arthus my new phone comes tomorrow :)
17:35 sharonp HEY! I watched that show!
17:35 sharonp I blogged about it even
17:36 sharonp I have a question about online safety ?
17:36 sharonp is it a public or private school??
17:37 sharonp Should we have concerns about pedophiles being able to openly view UStream - please know that I think it is a great idea and followed along.... just throwing the question out there
17:37 davecormier no.
17:38 davecormier by that argument we shouldn't bring kids to the park
17:38 arthus pedophiles need not use ustream... they can just hang out on street or park
17:38 AliceMercer Sharon, if they aren't striping, I think not?
17:38 sharonp I ask because I have been advocating skype in the classroom... and I get this argument thrown at me
17:38 davecormier need to type faster arthus :)
17:38 arthus yup... darn u
17:38 davecormier bwhahahaha
17:38 AliceMercer Sharon, the logic leads to the chador
17:39 davecormier everyone take notes
17:39 davecormier lessons learned!
17:39 AliceMercer Hey, someone might see your daughter, and lust after her, so put her in a sack!
17:39 sharonp I was very impressed with what I saw - on many levels
17:39 sharonp impressed with the students and their ability to answer questions
17:40 AliceMercer Would you recommend having a chat moderator?
17:40 sharonp impressed that you were able to do this with the students
17:40 sharonp my question - did the fact that the students had an audience make a difference to the students? in what ways?
17:40 AliceMercer If you had another adult there as moderator would that help?
17:40 JohnSchinker It's great to see people taking chances and pushing at the edges
17:40 AliceMercer Oh, lots of those on Skype.
17:40 Durff And I thought it was dave...
17:41 davecormier :|
17:41 sharonp was great
17:41 sharonp nice to have pioneers out there ahead of me
17:41 JL2 http://justin.tv/
17:42 sharonp trailblazers.... I raved about it to a whole bunch of prov consultatns later
17:42 AliceMercer Sharon, do you feel like you have the arguments against it?
17:42 sharonp I feel as though I need to anticipate the opposition and arguments
17:42 Durff oh the segues
17:42 AliceMercer How's this looking? http://voicethread.com/#u16410.b20480.i116623
17:42 AliceMercer Sharon, you do...
17:42 sharonp so this is why I throw the questions out here.... to those who are doing it...
17:42 AliceMercer As 14-15-16 yo's are want to do?
17:43 AliceMercer Yeah, you don't teach them, they do stupid stuff.
17:43 AliceMercer Oh, who was a latch key kid?
17:44 sharonp the internet are the new social spaces
