Women of Web 2.0.18
March 13, 2007

Well fans, join the Women of Web 2.0, Jen, Sharon, Vicky and Cheryl as we interview Chris Harbeck and Jeanne Simpson. It was March 13, 2007, the Nicecast gremblins took over and quit out of SKYPE a couple of times. Then the guardian angel Jeff Lebow, stepped in and helped with the stream and recording. THANKS to Jeff. Anyway, the lesson/moral of the story is......try something new, there is always a safety net out there to catch you! The content of the show, in spite of the glitches, is incredible. Where else can you hang out on a Tuesday evening and get such great staff development. Thanks to Chris and Jeanne for their expertise and classroom examples. You are the pioneers and our heros. There are a number of great links in the chat log. Enjoy.

Women of Web 2.0, March 20, 2007 The SuperAdministrator Show

65:07 minutes (22.36 MB)

Join Jen, Vicki and Cheryl as we chat with Miguel Guhlin, Scott MacLeod, Pete Reilly and Doug Johnson. Sharon Peters is on vacation in Costa Rica but shares her Wows of the week via email before she headed out to the rainforest. She is really enjoying Wikieconomics.

Cheryl opened the show with the wrong date for EST, but was correct for Terry Freedman's time zone! Then Skype dropped Doug and when she went to drag him back to the conversation, SKPYE crashed. All in one evening. By the end of the show Cheryl was in an echo chamber again. Only to find out that Nicecast had jumped settings and instead of recording one mic, was picking up multiple inputs. So, hopefully by tomorrow all the settings will check out.

Enjoy the great administrators who are behind the scenes and encouraging the use of Web 2.0 tools. The bottom line I will keep listening to teachers and students and will make day to day evaluations. One size does not fit all!

Thanks to all 28 people in the chat room, all the folks on SKPYE and all of you who download this podcast. There is great stuff! Over and out. Cheryl
