Here is the agenda of our show! We were able to discuss our way through the whole show agenda!

Great job Vicki moderating.

The Horizon Report 2007 states that virtual worlds are going to be a significant trend on college campuses in the next 1-5 years but there are some educators already doing it.

The Guests
Beth Ritter-Guth is a pioneer who is teaching literature in Second Life (SL). (Shakespeare in SL, to "prim or not to prim?")  She has taught me so much and is very patient!  We have a lot to learn from her.

Dr. Allan Webb is the founder of literaryworlds.org  and has an amazing story to tell about how a difficult book became very teachable in a 3D environment.

This is not technology focused as both of our interviewees are teaching literature!  It will be exciting!

Links for this show!

We have agendas for these shows.  I'm going to share a pared down version with you:


WOW2 April 10, 2007 Agenda: The Potential for Virtual Worlds in Teaching

First 5 minutes - our WOW's of the week (where we share the coolest new stuff we've found!)

I. Guest Intro
(Brief bio, what doing now, and how they first got into virtual worlds and what they do now in virtual worlds.)

II. The current uses of virtual worlds in teaching
Observations from those who are doing it.
Dr. Webb -- How he first started literary worlds and the improvements he saw.
Beth - How she first started using second life and she you uses it in the classroom now.

III. Where do you see this going?
Beth - What do you think can be done in SL or other worlds that will help teaching? Are you seeing things happen in SL that will change things?
Dr. Webb - Where do you see sites like virtual worlds going in the future?
Beth's response

IV. Current Trends and Reports and your Reactions -
The Horizon Report 2007 listed virtual worlds and massive multiplayer gaming as becoming important parts of the college educational experience in the next 1-5 years? Do you agree with the time frame? Do you think college profs will agree or disagree with this?

A new report has emerged questioning the validity of software in helping achievement... do you think this has the potential to also stymie the growth of virtual worlds and give ammunition to the incredulous?


V. Safety
SL and Teenagers -- What can we do to safely use this tool. Beth, let's start with you, we want the audience to understand the issues about bringing K-12 into SL and the limitations.
Dr. Webb - are there safety issues in virtual worlds?

   cheri toledo -> EdTechTalk: taking the plunge lol

   cheri toledo -> EdTechTalk: none of the standard formatting have kept up

   Durff -> EdTechTalk: APA too

   Cheryl wow -> EdTechTalk: that is the hardest question I have to answer when my boys ask me how to cite sources on the web.

   cyndi -> EdTechTalk: yes, the standards have to change with the media

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: though there are things like DOPA and 'net neutraility'

   Durff -> EdTechTalk: ye ol' guessetimate!

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: neutrality

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: I'll have to look, just a moment.

   JenniferWagner -> EdTechTalk: I will be happy to let you browse the Pied Piper literary world. Send me an email, and I'll send you a character name and password. The expected audience for this online learning activity is the K- teacher and the college professor. The following categories can be considered subjects under which the online literary world might qualify as a useful learning tool:      * literary studies of any sort     * children's literature     * story telling devices of any kind     * analytical and critical thinking skills     * geography     * history     * culture     * inter textual relationships (this is not reduced only to books, but includes all story telling devices such as television, songs, drama, dance  in short, all of the fine arts that can incorporate any form of communication)  You may contact me at blue@charter.net.

   Cheryl wow -> EdTechTalk: thanks Jen

   Durff -> EdTechTalk: Jen - ldurff@broadfording.com

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: Dr. Allen Webb.

   Cheryl wow -> EdTechTalk: vicki, your mic was okay.

   CLykowski -> EdTechTalk: Thanks everyone

   cheri toledo -> EdTechTalk: hi dea - this is the post-show

   paulson -> EdTechTalk: Hi Dea!

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: so if we want to create a room based on a script, what kind of permission do we need for literary worlds

   CLykowski -> EdTechTalk: Have a good night everyone

   JenniferWagner -> EdTechTalk: in SL or the other environment

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: yeah but that's on Main Grid

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: why show teens a place they can't get to

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: That is why the teacher would have to do it.

   sroseman -> EdTechTalk: I am on the dance floor in SL!!

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: I know there are issues with it.

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: yes ,but the teens cannot get to it

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: Sue, you naughty girl.

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: That's right and it is a problem.

   JenniferWagner -> EdTechTalk: Sue Roseman is fun in SL

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: show them the teen grid by getting a teen

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: We need an educators world.

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: who is in second life

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: to demo the teen grid

   JenniferWagner -> EdTechTalk: she is much more adventurous

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: choose one teen

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: to do this

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: for the class

   KarenJanowski -> EdTechTalk: Vicki, you have been advocating for that.  How does that happen?'

   Cheryl wow -> EdTechTalk: hi Karne

   Cheryl wow -> EdTechTalk: I mean Karen J.

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: I don't know how it will happen but if SL goes open source, we get funding and get servers and set it up.

   KarenJanowski -> EdTechTalk: HI, Chery!!

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: That is what many people want!

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: Use youth participation by having them guide the class through teen second life

   JenniferWagner -> EdTechTalk: I doubt if SL would go OS - do you think that is a possibility??

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: doesn't make sense to show them a place they can't get to

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: legally

   JenniferWagner -> EdTechTalk: they HAVE to be making $$$ on this

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: I'm not quite sure what I think yet about it.

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: With high school students.

   vardalek -> EdTechTalk: the teens can go build stuff on teen grid; at  they CAN go in to SL main grid. I don't see the problem in demo-ing

   vardalek -> EdTechTalk: we do other kinds of demos all the time in classrooms

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: YES!!! James is awesome

   alicemac -> EdTechTalk: teens are out there on the main grid now ... no matter what you might think

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: why not demo a place they can get to and that they've created

   KarenJanowski -> EdTechTalk: I have asked many teens in my area if they know about SL. I've yet to run into some one who knows about it.

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: I know they're out on the main grid-not that naive

   BethRitterGuth -> EdTechTalk: that is interesting

   JenniferWagner -> EdTechTalk: I am finding MANY college students know though

   Cheryl wow -> EdTechTalk: Karen, none of hte "kids " I see are into SL., yet

   sharonp -> EdTechTalk: I agree, Karen - but think of the opportunity we have to INTRO SL to them in  a Proper way

   JenniferWagner -> EdTechTalk: but it is not a big deal with my K students yet

   BethRitterGuth -> EdTechTalk: www.there.com

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: as educators, we can support the standards of LL and give them credit for the world they create

   alicemac -> EdTechTalk: agreed

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: how cool is it for teens to see a world that adults have created-that they can't legally get to

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: they have created A LOT on the teen grid

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: and are amazing

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: I think that www.there.com is the answer that we are talking about.

   vardalek -> EdTechTalk: my prob is that in september some of my students are  and by January they're all . tricky w SL rules

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: yep tricky

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: Do you use the teen grid kczarnec

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: yep-have an island

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: EyeYou Alliance

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: supported by public libraries

   ElenaW -> EdTechTalk: Credit card? How expensive is it to visit SL?

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: it's free to visit sl

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: for a basic account

   Bloomsbury -> EdTechTalk: LL gives a stable developement environment for educators, however the post compulsory - user base may need some new grid..

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: Will you share the slurl can others go there?

   sharonp -> EdTechTalk: free to just hang around and enjoy Sl - my kind of price

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: Would you like to come on a show sometime?

   alicemac -> EdTechTalk: free fou get a few L$or basic, if you log a credit card y

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: I would love to Vicki :)

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: Could you e-mail me offline coolcatteacher@gmail.com

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: Any other teachers with islands in SL?

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: can't sure slurl-there is no way for adults to get there without a background check

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: Ok, great!  That is fine.

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: but would love for any volunteers

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: kczarnecki@plcmc.org

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: Do you have any machinima vidoes?

   BethRitterGuth -> EdTechTalk: yes

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: not yet but we are working on it yes-we have someone that works with us that can create

   vardalek -> EdTechTalk: No island for me yet

   BethRitterGuth -> EdTechTalk: I did a top ten list on www.stingyscholar.blogspot.com

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: who should she send to when she has video

   charbeck -> EdTechTalk:  Thanks for the chat tonight everyone.  Enjoy the rest of your evening

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: public libraries! we need to make them available in our public libraries :)

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: Bye Chris!

   JenniferWagner -> EdTechTalk: night Chris

   JenniferWagner -> EdTechTalk: good to see you

   charbeck -> EdTechTalk: thanks

   Cheryl wow -> EdTechTalk: bye chris, thanks for stopping

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: we have to keep pushing the word at how positive uses of social networking are being used by teachers and librarians

   cyndi -> EdTechTalk: yes publically available in public librairies

   cyndi -> EdTechTalk: equal access

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: YALSA blog and wiki has a lot of information on the positive uses of social networking

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: Young Adult Library Services Associaiton

   Cheryl wow -> EdTechTalk: I think SL extends the learning time.

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: http://teentechweek.wikispaces.com/DOPA

   BethRitterGuth -> EdTechTalk: yes, I agree

   cyndi -> EdTechTalk: yes, the Yalsa blog is what I have been using to convinve my boss

   BethRitterGuth -> EdTechTalk: they make connections to people

   cyndi -> EdTechTalk: convince

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: awesome Cyndi!!! Beaming

   vardalek -> EdTechTalk: it's like tutorials (to Allen)  reflection can be guided later

   vardalek -> EdTechTalk: learning journals

   kczarnec -> EdTechTalk: vicki-who do we send info to if interested in presenting?

   Cheryl wow -> EdTechTalk: Beth good point, the technology enhances good instruction.

   Durff -> EdTechTalk: the most convincing argument is a parent who hears their son/daughter improve

   Durff -> EdTechTalk: when they speak out, admin listens

   BethRitterGuth -> EdTechTalk: yes

   Durff -> EdTechTalk: I had that!

   Durff -> EdTechTalk: thank God

   cyndi -> EdTechTalk: yes, content delivered and learned is the best tool for convincing administrators

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: I sent you an e-mail kczarnec

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: Just e-mail me.

   vardalek -> EdTechTalk: I had a student for whom SL was a whole new way to engage in the real world of applying cultural studies concepts

   sharonp -> EdTechTalk: vardalek, that is an exciting observation

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: But think what it can do for those with physical disabilities.

   Cheryl wow -> EdTechTalk: that is groundbreaking , that is a great way for SL to work Vardalek

   vardalek -> EdTechTalk:  students went to real world sites for reflective observation;  went to SL  that was his blossoming

   cheri toledo -> EdTechTalk: good night everyone, see you all next week - hold onto your hats, helmets, and beanies

   vinnie v -> EdTechTalk: it is an amplifier, it makes a great teacher better and exposes a bad teacher quicker
