 cheryloakes wow2  David the keynote was just incredible and it did start the conference on a really great note.
 Vicki Davis  The keynote was wonderful! I showed clips to my students.
 Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach  It was amazing... it really set the whole tone of the conference
 charbeck1  I am curious with what
 Lee  Hi Sheryl
 Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach  hi Lee!!!!
 Vicki Davis  They said, cool, that guy is sitting in his car and talking tothe camera. He must be cool.
 sharonp  Hi Lee!
 Lee  Hello Sharon
 cheryloakes wow2  hi lee, sharon is having fun with colors
 sharonp  yup - with my fave colours
 Lee  Colors are good!
 JenniferW  you can find a link to the keynote from there
 JenniferW  going purple
 sharonp  info is no longer linear
 sharonp  but hyperlinked ...
 cheryloakes wow2  in a web
 JenniferW  going blue
 Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach  all the presentations are here
 sharonp  with user-driven choice
 sharonp  which is very 2.0-ish
 cheryloakes wow2  you can get 3 graduate credits by going to the link to Plymouth State College
 charbeck1  I was curious about what David thinks about Will recent comment about blogging I agree with George Siemens when he says: [b]And yet, it feels like our small edublogger town (where everyone knows everyone) is becoming a small city - where relationships begin to cluster in smaller networks, instead of one large structure.[/b] and [b]Doh! It really isn’t about blogs as much any more, is it? It’s not about the tool. It’s about the ability to connect. Yeah, I’ve known that, felt that, but sometimes my brain needs a succinct reminder.[/b]
 JenniferW  we shall ask
 charbeck1  Summerize that if you would....:)
 JenniferW  Will?? Richardson??
 charbeck1  Yes
 charbeck1 is the link
 sendkathy  what's the podcast link from David's keynote
 JenniferW  thanks -- I was looking for it
 sendkathy  great
 sendkathy  you're the best!
 JenniferW  nah -- just copied pasted :)
 sharonp  it is about the connectivity.... as Chris says
 charbeck1 is the specific David Link
 sroseman  Hi all
 sroseman  Is WOW2 on or did I miss it
 charbeck1  The conference will never end
 Janice  Hi. WOW is on
 Jeanne Simpson  We just started!
 cheryloakes wow2  it is on chanel 1 at edtechtalk, hi susan
 sharonp  think it might mean that the edublogosphere is becoming a city of suburbs rather than a small town?
 Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach  It's Wow2
 cathy e  Ya'll sound perfect to me ( from NC)
 JenniferW  Hi Sue -
 JenniferW  you can hear us on Stream 1 -- the skypecast isn't workin
 charbeck1  Thank you...
 sharonp  that's what I read from it
 sharonp  so the aspect of community is starting to get lost
 sendkathy  I think he's trying to create artificial standards
 charbeck1  sorrrrry!
 JenniferW  no worries
 Vicki Davis  I've got to go read up on that article, Chris.
 JenniferW  sorry I was vague -- I dont read web-blogged faithfully
 cheryloakes wow2  it is a good topic for us to post show chris
 charbeck1  yes
 Vicki Davis  We need to read up and perhaps have a talk about it later. It is really being discussed a lot.
 Jeanne Simpson  I got mine in the mail today!
 sendkathy  I'm trying to inform my whole school community about the sunami that is web 2.0
 sharonp  good metaphors
 cheryloakes wow2  that is great tsunami!
 sendkathy  yes
 sharonp  school is not just relevant and current
 sendkathy  oops
 charbeck1  kids want to do the work.... it has is what they need to do to be literate
 sharonp  hard to inform the school because it just isn't that visible to them
 Jeanne Simpson  Sheryl...I was surprised that you were not quoted...It sounded just like what you have been saying!
 sendkathy  How often are women quoted?
 Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach  smile.. nod to Jeanne
 Jeanne Simpson  I'll run get it.
 sendkathy  Technology is very paternalistic
 sharonp  grew up in South Detroit myself - wow - they are making great changes from auto industry to the reality check of moving to an knowledge-driven model
 sendkathy  We need to inform the parents. They are going to drive this whole thing
 sharonp  good point
 sharonp  and I have seen that
 sroseman  the infrastructure of schools need changing
 charbeck1  boys like video games then programming so they become tech leaders??
 sendkathy  I want to educate the parents
 sharonp  it is a changing paradigm
 sendkathy  yes
 Vicki Davis  I would be happy if we could educate the teachers!
 Jeanne Simpson  Dell executive Karen Bruett who serves on the board of the Partnership for 21st Century Skills is quoted.
 Vicki Davis  If teacherse are unwilling to change how are they going to birth students who are willing to change.
 charbeck1  How can we get women girls into this change.... 2.0 is about youth
 sendkathy  yes but I think the parents will drive the reeluctant teachers
 Janice  ...and educate the administrators..
 sendkathy  oh yes
 cheryloakes wow2  women of web 2.0 is a start
 sharonp  I see more girls than ever - 2.0 is about social computing
 Jeanne Simpson  Elementary school principal who is female is quoted
 sharonp  social computing is different from the previous model and I have seen a huge change in the perspective of girls toward technology
 sendkathy  glad to hear it
 Jeanne Simpson  Deborah Stipek, dean of Stanford University School of Education
 sharonp  because social computing is about communication, collaboration - those things girls are more interested in
 sendkathy  have you read the Starfish and the Spider yet?
 sharonp  no - do tell more
 Vicki Davis  Wait till you see the wiki that two of the ladies in the flat classroom project creatd on virtual communications.
 Vicki Davis  They were better collaborators.
 Jeanne Simpson  Two female students
 sendkathy  Well it hasa to do with new business models as a result of scial networking
 charbeck1  I do not see a gender division in my classes when it comes to the technology. Both are keen about using it. Will this change in the future
 sharonp  I believe it
 Vicki Davis  Yes, two female students - one in Camilla and one in Bangladesh
 cheryloakes wow2  what grade chris
 Vicki Davis  I don't see gender division either.
 charbeck1  8
 BethRitterGuth  I just got it, how can I skype in?
 Durff  Vickie - URL?
 cheryloakes wow2  I don't see it at elementary, but now I am at jr. hg and hg school, maybe
 sharonp  such a change since when the girls I used to teach in computer labs really believed that computers hated them
 sroseman  I do not see gender division in 7/8
 Vicki Davis  Click on channel 1 here.
 Vicki Davis  Skype is messing up tonight.
 Jeanne Simpson  Probably about a dozen men are quoted.
 charbeck1  use world bridges channel. no skype toonight\
 BethRitterGuth  OK :-)
 vvrotny  Those that don't see a gender imbalance, are you female leaders adn teacher?
 BethRitterGuth  I am listening
 Vicki Davis  hey, Beth !
 JenniferW  again -- what a great group we have tonight
 BethRitterGuth  Hey Vicki!
 sharonp  no longer see it .... as much, anyways
 sroseman membership is 70% female!!
 sharonp  it is important for me to be a role model in that as a woman.... and I have two daughters
 Karen Phillips  sorry...just realized using tabs in firefox disconnects me from chat
 BethRitterGuth  I may be the only college professor?
 cheryloakes wow2  yahoo
 BethRitterGuth  technlogy is definitely imbalanced among college students
 sendkathy  how so
 mrocarroll  Hi Vicki, just wanted to thank you for teaching me about wikis, going to venture into their use soon
 Vicki Davis  Great!
 Vicki Davis  Let me know if I can help!
 Jeanne Simpson  They are learning how to use it own their own.
 charbeck1  communication is the key of the 2.0 and the 21st c school.
 BethRitterGuth  Well, I use gaming to teach, and the male students are more technologically able to use it
 charbeck1  Power Passe
 sendkathy  Curiosity needs to be encouraged
 mrocarroll  Thank you, I will! And you probably can!
 BethRitterGuth  the women say things like, "that is a boys game"
 vvrotny  But where is the deep thinking in doing a powerpoint
 Durff  We all have to learn Web 2.0
 Durff  Latin is good but...
 JenniferW  I will beg to differ -- I have seen POWERFUL powerpoints
 JenniferW  from 3rd graders
 Durff  we ALL need to teach web toolws
 JenniferW  and up
 JenniferW  :)
 sendkathy  yes, we need to be able to read, write and type and speak...well
 BethRitterGuth  Latin is good, but why does there have to be one or the other?
 sharonp  but good PPTs need to be modeled first
 JenniferW  I taught K - 7
 Vicki Davis  I agree Beth.
 JenniferW  8
 Durff  up?
 SusanB  my kindergarten kids can do powerpoint. I set up a template and they just dragged the pictures from the net into it.
 JenniferW  yes, shareon -- and I was a good demo :)
 BethRitterGuth  I use online Latin open courses for my students
 Lee  i use alice to encourage my girls to go into programming
 alicebarr  Exactly!
 Durff  they teach me
 sendkathy  I atught k5 tecchnology but when the position was cut the regular ed teachers didn't experiment with anything new
 sendkathy  can't type
 SusanB  likewise with me. the lab just sits there now
 JenniferW  yes, at my former school -- tech was ONLY in the lab
 BethRitterGuth  You may have covered this, but do many of you face great resistance to using web technology to teach?
 JenniferW  and that is where they wanted it to stay
 joycevalenza  I would love to see a focus on thoughtful searching and information quality and selection
 mrocarroll  great blog post about PPTs here:
 Durff  you had a lab?
 Durff  i wish!
 charbeck1  pp us a great tool that can be used in conjunction with other tools. By passe I meant there are many open source alternatives to buying from MSoft
 Durff  we have zero
 JenniferW  I just downloaded Open Office
 JenniferW  LOVING it
 dthaggard  i teach second grade I'm always looking for new ways to use technology with my kids. Biggest problem is we only get to go to the lab once a week.
 JenniferW  Durff -- I was at a private school
 Durff  i'm pushing podcasts now
 charbeck1  I just had a kid use thumbstacks
 JenniferW  Donna -- :) HI -- I didn't see you here
 alicebarr  The goal behind Powerpoint should be the PRESENTATION SKILLS
 sharonp  thumbstacks?
 Durff  yup private
 Vicki Davis  I think you should start where you can. Whatever is available use it!
 JenniferW  Alice, I agree --
 dthaggard  Hey Jen. My first night here.
 sharonp  yes, presentation skills
 joycevalenza  the goal should be effective communication, right alice!
 charbeck1  Free pp software
 BethRitterGuth  I will be using Second Life in the Srping
 Durff  honework is online
 sendkathy  how?
 Durff  really?
 sendkathy  Did you set up a classroom?
 cheryloakes wow2  where do you teach Beth?
 Karen Phillips  I manage a computer lab and I am in constant disagreement with staff who wants to bring kids in for "computer time" and they don't have a focus
 Karen Phillips  I want them to use the lab as a tool to teach with....not entertainment
 BethRitterGuth  I teach at Lehigh Carbon Community College in PA. My students will meet "inworld" with another English calss
 Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach
 cheryloakes wow2  great use of SL
 charbeck1  aurgh  Here is an article about the hole in the wall:
 JenniferW  29 in the chat room -- WOWOW -- a record
 dthaggard  We don't have a computer teacher so it is up to the classroom teachers to teach in the lab.
 BethRitterGuth  We will be discussing the two short stories, "Harrison Bergeron" by Kurt Vonnegut andin "Those Who Walk Away from Omelas" by Ursual Le Gu
 BethRitterGuth  We will be borrowing a classroom from another college
 Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach
 charbeck1  If we could onlyget a transcript.
 JenniferW  so Beth -- you are college level??
 cheryloakes wow2  so sweet! you've really thought this out, I am interested
 BethRitterGuth  yes
 BethRitterGuth  Yes, Jennifer
 JenniferW  great
 Durff  these web 2.0 things are just tools
 Durff  for us to access
 BethRitterGuth  I will be blogging the prgress as we go
 Durff  Beacon?
 Durff  yes!
 sharonp  sounds so cool
 BethRitterGuth  if it works, I am going to open it up to our area VoTech high school, and we are going to try to work in the teen grid
 Karen Phillips  will the conversation tonight be a podcast?
 JenniferW  Yes Karen
 sharonp  yes, Cheryl will take care of that
 cheryloakes wow2  yes, look for podcast at womenofweb2.0 and podomatic
 sharonp  and the chat log too, I hope
 JenniferW  you can get it tomorrow at or day after
 Vicki Davis  Wow!
 sharonp  I keep getting bumped out of the chat
 cheryloakes wow2  i've been harvesting the chat tonight too!!!
 Karen Phillips  good....I have to run here to finish a book review. It's been great - good night
 charbeck1  lots of chat goodness
 Durff  I get better results witrh 7th grade than with upper classmen
 JenniferW  thanks karen
 JenniferW  One of our best nights -- right, Chris???
 sharonp  yes, good point - I have found the same with my students
 charbeck1  you bet Jen
 sharonp  teacher always learns more than the students
 cheryloakes wow2  bye Karen P
 Durff  how do we encouraqge those high school kida?
 Doug  excellent point re reverse mentorship
 Doug  a real key, I think
 Durff  ?
 charbeck1  Double learning...students becoming teachers. They will stay involved too
 Durff  what is this?
 charbeck1  Students teaching teachers tech and other things
 Durff  so how do I implement that??
 BethRitterGuth  I think this is an interesting point, as professors don't take education courses
 BethRitterGuth  I learned everything about teaching from my students
 charbeck1  Ask if anyone knows how to do for example a podcast..or wants to learn and teach the class
 Lee  i have the chat room copied tonight y'all.. :)
 Vicki Davis  There is a great book analyzing what the best college professors do called "What the best teachers do" it is a GREAT BOOK!
 BethRitterGuth  I learned quickly that they care little about archetypal patterns in literature, lol
 JenniferW  I am truly loving teaching and sharing with k - 6 teachers the tools of web2.0 -- they then, share and grow with their kids
 cheryloakes wow2  thanks Lee, it is amazing, I've been trying too!!
 Durff  I bet is great
 Durff  the efficacy rate
 Cheri T  Jen, I'm with you - I'm loving teaching teachers how to use all these tools with their K-12 students
 BethRitterGuth  I am going to get a copy of that book Vicki, thanks
 Vicki Davis  The kids love it so much that it is very exciting for a teacher.
 JenniferW  the K-6 teachers are loving it -- and preparing their kids NOW for what they will be doing even more in 5 years
 cheryloakes wow2  Cheri I hope they are engaged and appreciate t his opportunity!
 BethRitterGuth  the best teaching ideas I've ever received have been from K-12 teachers
 Cheri T  every week they say "I like this week best!"
 sroseman  Many of the Web2.0 tools do not have a steep learning great for teachers too
 sroseman  in terms of time
 cheryloakes wow2  good point susanr
 JenniferW  I am giving teachers the opportunity to be stretched by learning tools in K-6 and they are jumping at it
 Durff  for those who will participate, yes it works
 Vicki Davis  Yes! David, you are so right!
 JenniferW  wanting more and more and more allthe time
 charbeck1  How about writing in math. THis has been an issue for along time. BLogging is a terrific way to get the kids to write and do math.....understand conceptually!!
 Cheri T  true and that gives those teachers such confidence and boldness
 JenniferW  and they then, take it back to the classroom
 Durff  but for those who refuse, it has not worked...yet
 SusanB  one tip I read was give the child the laptop for the day and allow him to blog all day by taking notes on the actual blog and then edit it at the end of the day.
 BethRitterGuth  Sadly, I face a ot of resistance amongst my colleagues
 BethRitterGuth  they resist technology
 JenniferW  grins, Durff, if you sign up for one of my projects -- You DO participate :)
 Durff  Math yes
 Durff  I am doing wikis in Algebra
 Durff  working well
 sendkathy  It's very personal to put yourself on the line via writing
 JenniferW  at my old school - the laptops sit in the box for 26 hours of the school week
 sharonp  and this is why we need the quantitative data - for those who still need to see it to be convinced (which is most of them)
 charbeck1  cool what is the address
 Cheri T  I'm finding more resistance from my college faculty colleagues, than my K-12 teacher students.
 sendkathy  It's very revealing
 Durff  uh?
 Durff  JenniferW
 sendkathy  See I can't spell!
 JenniferW  and the lab teacher on the K8 campus is teaching them how to format in WOrd - The kids are bored to death
 Durff  what?
 charbeck1  durff what is the wiki address
 JenniferW  sorry -- 2nd8 campus
 sharonp  great memory, Dave, about the researchers - hope I can look this up later
 JenniferW  Durff -- you had a question???
 Vicki Davis  I've seen this on my flat classroom project!
 BethRitterGuth  Why do think that is, Cheri?
 Vicki Davis  Authentic audience is so important!
 BethRitterGuth  I think it has to do with fear
 sendkathy  yes
 sendkathy  It's a commitment
 charbeck1  do you have a url durff
 joycevalenza  audience is powerful
 Vicki Davis  Flat classroom project - -- It closes tonight!
 JenniferW  I think is also has to do with the unknown
 sendkathy  Yes but the are critical
 Cheri T  David, do you have a reference on that study?
 Vicki Davis  They kids did a much better job when they knew they had an audience!
 charbeck1  Vicki you might get some sleep now!!
 JenniferW  and failure possibilty -- but they don't realize that it is learning
 Charlene Chausis  kudos to the students in the FlatClassroom Project... great job!
 BethRitterGuth  great project!
 Charlene Chausis  Vicki... we still need to chat
 Charlene Chausis  when you catch your breath
 Charlene Chausis  :-)
 charbeck1  Audience is key. I challenge my students to comment as much as possible
 Durff  I can't paste the URL but it's
 Vicki Davis  Breathe? What is that.
 sendkathy  Are wikis better because the students can correct each other?
 Lee  i agree
 sroseman  if anything is done for an authentic audience it is more meaningful..whether it is writing, drama, a presentation, a reflective blog
 charbeck1  its overrated vicki
 BethRitterGuth  Wikis are awesome because they are flexible
 Vicki Davis  Wikis work well in tandem with blogs. They each have a purpose.
 sendkathy  Do your students prefer them?
 BethRitterGuth  I agree, Vicki - the wiki-blog model is best
 sendkathy  How do you use both effectively?
 Durff  My problem with wikis was one young man who erased other's work on purpose
 joycevalenza  but it isn't just every blog and every wiki
 Cheri T  brave woman!
 Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach
 JenniferW  I think the more you use-- the merrier -- blogs, wikis, podcasts, video, etc etc
 sharonp  yes, the excitement - the engagement of the students - is just so amazing
 Jeanne Simpson  Vicki - Are you the one who said use wikis for facts and blogs for opinions?
 BethRitterGuth  Durff, did you revert pack to the correct page?
 sharonp  and that is what continues to drive me too
 cheryloakes wow2  engagement is the key
 charbeck1  durff the wiki looks great
 JenniferW  grins -- did Vicki say that first??
 Durff  thanks, our wikis are in progress
 Durff  Vickie you work too much
 JenniferW  I think I heard her say that in GA
 BethRitterGuth  Vicki is a saint
 Vicki Davis  Yes - wikis for facts and blogs for opinions, yes.
 Vicki Davis  Not a saint!
 Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach
 BethRitterGuth  She is from the best town in all of Georgia ;-)
 charbeck1  That is authentic learning.......
 Durff  yes you are
 sroseman  engaged learning!!
 Durff  my kids think so
 sharonp  biggest compliment for me (okay, it's brag time) recently was having my own kids say to me (and I teach both their grade levels) that they wished *I* was their teacher because of how their friends so enjoy my class (wow, big moment for me!)
 charbeck1  did they work harder because of the distance between the two groups?
 sendkathy  But some say educational blogs should have more than just opinion right?
 pam  It bugs me when teachers have a homework blog - with sole purpose of listing assignments. Seems it should be a static webpage.

 BethRitterGuth  The kindest peopl I ever met (that, incidently, fed me the best friend chicken I have EVER had in my life) live in Camilla
 sharonp  perhaps they should be using a wiki space over a blog space
 sharonp  but wikis are still so new .... maybe they will move to that model
 BethRitterGuth  I se a wiki to house homework
 BethRitterGuth  Students have a wiki to DO homework, too
 Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach  We even have a family Christmas wiki
 Durff  I wish the faculty would get on the bandwagon
 Cheri T  Amen! durff
 Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach  all of our around the country (my family) have added their gifts with links to the item
 Cheri T  I'm the lone voice in the wilderness in my college
 sharonp  I agree - teachers should be blogging- reflective practitioners - that is the chief reason I blog
 sendkathy  My own kids in HS have no exposure to any of this! It's outrageous to me that my kindergarteners are getting more than my own flesh and blood.
 sroseman  teachers need to teach 4 days of the week with the last day for inservice and prof dev
 Durff  Cheri I knowq how you feel
 sendkathy  that would be ideal
 sharonp  that would be a perfect model - 4+1
 Lee  more connectivity..more collaboration.. welcoming teamwork with each other
 cheryloakes wow2  that is true many places kathy
 JenniferW  many of us are the lone voice -- but isn't it great we found each other
 Janice  But the rss feed of a blog is good for posting homework assignments, so long as other posts are there too.
 sendkathy  we now have 5 full days a year of staff dev
 BethRitterGuth  Heck, college teachers teac 4 days and skip out on the professional development
 sroseman  lengthen the school day ever so slightly
 BethRitterGuth  they won't learn the technology
 Durff  it used to be to write...Reggie Routman
 Cheri T  you are so right, beth
 sendkathy  I provide frontpage support but now I'd really like to be teaching we2.0 tools
 Lee  instead of competitiveness and "slithering"
 sharonp  it is maddening to me that my school has dedicated $90K per year for prof dev yet has no accountability for it
 sendkathy  where does it go
 Durff  now it is to blog...the new Routman=Davis
 sharonp  love it - contracted learning
 JenniferW  woudl totallly change learning
 sharonp  great idea
 Vicki Davis  you catch web 2.0 like the flu from one person to another -- that is how it will change education.
 sharonp  not sure it would work with young teenagers
 Vicki Davis  One teacher at a time.
 sharonp  some would contract to beat Mario (videogame)
 charbeck1  and they tell 2 friends and so on and so on.............
 Durff  one person at a time
 Charlene Chausis  I'm wondering how long the honeymoon will last? How long can we expect our blogs to exist? Or our wikis? Will they be here for 1,000 years?
 cheryloakes wow2  we need to keep blogging, sharing, and also a little in your face. No more excuses
 Jeanne Simpson  Did you lecture on constructivism, Sheryl?
 Charlene Chausis  It's like "you've got religion"
 sendkathy  Top down. The admin must buy in.
 mrocarroll  How do I as a religious education teacher, who must teach dogma, use the constructivist approach?
 sharonp  it may not be called blogging or wikis in a few years - but I do believe that collaborative learning will continue
 Durff  and we need to go further
 BethRitterGuth  There is a lot of good information about religion on the web
 Vicki Davis  It starts with you. The me-out approach not top down or bottom up but me-out.
 charbeck1  CC when you interact with other people from far away over a project you see that is is not a fad.... it is a terrific way to learn and stay active
 BethRitterGuth  Use a theme like faith and culture
 Charlene Chausis  me-out?
 sroseman  Is there such a thing as too much collaborating
 Jeanne Simpson  The Alabama work has been a little scary for us as learners!!!!
 Durff  anyone pdcast from conference to the school besides Vickie?
 Vicki Davis  Yes -- me-out.
 Jeanne Simpson  We wanted you to tell us what to do!
 Lee  i do
 Vicki Davis  It starts with me and it spreads out.
 sharonp  mrocarroll, perhaps use the socratic approach...? with web 2.0 tools?
 BethRitterGuth  I podcast all of my lectures
 sendkathy  I told my kids today that my job is to make them good teachers because teaching is about using communication skills.
 Charlene Chausis  thanks Vicki...
 Vicki Davis  Great, Kathy.
 Durff  life long learners
 sendkathy  I'm getting a Masters in elem ed and all we have is livetext for portfolio management and it's terrible.
 charbeck1  That is a good analogy Kathy
 sendkathy  thx
 Cheri T  we have professional development schools where students spend their last year at school sites - they are so much better teachers when they're done
 Durff  I want to podcast from the Hershey conference to our school blog in Feb
 BethRitterGuth  there is a nice portfolio from Carnegie called KEEP toolkit; it is a free download
 Vicki Davis  Please do!
 Cheri T  yes
 sharonp  I agree, Sheryl
 BethRitterGuth  Are you staying at the hershey hotel?
 sharonp  my son is so extrinsically motivated - he is kinesthetic in approach
 Durff  I' thinking I will
 BethRitterGuth  They have great wireless
 Durff  it's more $, but oh well
 sharonp  he needs to be involved -the traditional method is killing his desire to learn
 Durff  yes?
 BethRitterGuth  you can blog from right in the conference rooms
 Durff  I think I'll go back to the room....quieter
 Cheri T  they've learned school
 sendkathy  teachers need better training at the university level
 charbeck1  Pd on your own....isn't that the k12 online? It never ends check out this wiki The conference goes on and on and on... YOu set the speed and choice of what you are learning
 sendkathy  I don't like conference sessions because I want to participate
 Charlene Chausis  we're finding that the students are ok with it, but the parents can't get on board with the changes in teaching
 Cheri T  schooling vs. educating
 sharonp  web 2.0 tools are perfect for self-directed learning- student-content centred
 Cheri T  as David says, we need to teach people how to learn
 sharonp  yes, web 2.0 tools are great knowledge management tools (as is the 1:1 laptop model)
 cathy e  I need more time with my teachers so I can share the "power" of 2.0
 Durff  wow...that's it
 Cheri T  charlene, some of the greatest resistance I get comes from pre-service teachers who want to be spoon fed.
 Durff  And how is he?

 sendkathy  we need to encourage curiosity and problem solving
 Durff  Pappert?
 Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach
 charbeck1  Thank you lee
 Vicki Davis  Time flies!
 sharonp  anyone have an update on Papert
 sendkathy  don't you hate it!
 susanvg  Papert is very ill - he was hit by a motorcycle in Viet Nam
 Durff  you're kidding
 Lee  Your welcome Chris. :)
 Cheri T  durff, Seymore Pappert - constructionist
 Vicki Davis  Time flies when you're learning so much!
 charbeck1  Wiki is "cooperative Learning"
 JenniferW  seymour
 sendkathy  I have that experience all the time
 Durff  I know but how is he?
 JenniferW  still in a coma
 Durff  oh dear
 Cheri T  bummer
 JenniferW  yes
 sharonp  just finishing Pink's book
 BethRitterGuth  Vicki is right about "collaborators" not knowing anything about wikis
 Durff  10:01
 Cheri T  :D
 cheryloakes wow2  just ordered the book
 sharonp  and just saw A. November's presentation from 2 weeks ago - again a sense of urgency was his key point
 Durff  lol lol

 BethRitterGuth  this was great fun

Interesting discussion on Motivation

The discussion regarding motivation about 56min in really resonates with a couple of my recent blog posts: "The Secret to Raising Smart Kids" ( and "The Dark Side of Rewards and Praise" (

This prompted me to quote it and discuss it in "More on Motivation" ( I'd be keen to hear what others think.

re: Interesting discussion on Motivation

Oh, it also occurred to me that it would be nice to know it was that said the section I quoted, and to check if they don't mind that I quoted it...
