19:39:46 alicemercer ->  Orchard has a tie-in to California standards, but I'm not sure about Mass, or NH Cathy.
19:39:54 alicemercer ->  Very expensive, and a waste of money.
19:39:57 JenniferW ->  but -- you really need Star Reader to set the starting spot
19:40:18 Durff ->  star & AR go together
19:40:22 JenniferW ->  yes
19:40:25 alicemercer ->  Orchard will assess, then give lessons to remediate, and re-test
19:40:28 JenniferW ->  but many people don't buy Star
19:40:36 JL ->  Skype in # +99001110014978316
19:40:42 JoseR ->  What's Free
19:40:49 Durff ->  but ALL software improves 'stuff' if used

19:41:49 sroseman ->  for Math I am using Rainforst Maths
19:41:50 Durff ->  doesn't Terra Nova do a better job?

19:41:56 JohnSchinker ->  Alice: orchard is a waste of money?
19:41:58 sroseman ->  free
19:42:21 alicemercer ->  IMHO
19:42:35 alicemercer ->  Yes, I was one of two on staff who said don't buy
19:42:58 Vicki Davis ->  **QUestion-- We have found a hack to put superscripts on the wiki for the horizon project for doing MLA but it is a real "pain"-- should we just let kids use parentheses and the number (1) or should we require them to use the hack!  After you're doine with cathy's question.
19:43:05 alicemercer ->  They sell a module on vocabulary, and it just tested phonics, and spelling, not meaning, definitiosn and context
19:43:28 JohnSchinker ->  Just put it in parentheses
19:43:55 Lee ->  Golly...what a crowd!
19:44:06 Durff ->  is that here, Cathy?
19:44:39 JohnPederson ->  hi everybody!
19:44:42 Vicki Davis ->  Hey, John.
19:44:48 Linda J ->  I am here...Cathy did great Tues. night!
19:44:59 JenMad ->  hi, john!
19:45:15 JasonR ->  Checking out for the night. Thanks.
19:45:26 Vicki Davis ->  Citations - Modern Language Association
19:46:08 Vicki Davis ->  That is what MLA stands for.
19:46:09 sharonp ->  who memorizes that anymore?? I teach them to use citation machine!
19:46:18 dave ->  we use refworks
19:46:32 dave ->  ALOT of people still make people memorize that
19:46:34 Vicki Davis ->  WE use citation machine too -- Great answer!
19:46:38 sharonp ->  honestly, teach them to use the tool rather than that outdated stuff
19:46:40 alicemercer ->  I thought there was a movement towards simplfying citations,
19:46:52 Vicki Davis ->  Well, MLA hasn't done an Internet standard.
19:47:04 alicemercer ->  I meant in paper
19:47:05 Vicki Davis ->  So, we're going to have to invent one if they don't get on board.
19:47:15 Durff ->  most of the world uses APA
19:47:16 sroseman ->  http://www.longman.com/ae/marketing/sfesl/practicereading.html
19:47:16 alicemercer ->  Well, they should???
19:47:21 sroseman ->  for practice tests
19:47:27 JenniferW ->  I learned Kate Turabian -- in college
19:47:42 Durff ->  Turabian - yucko

19:48:01 JenniferW ->  yup

19:48:29 Durff ->  citation machine by Warlick makes it easy
19:48:34 JenniferW ->  and these are college students???
19:48:50 alicemercer ->  We all learned turabian
19:48:59 JenniferW ->  Jeff -- you teach college??
19:49:10 alicemercer ->  Well, turabian was nice for the time.
19:49:11 dave ->  yeah... he taught this year
19:49:13 Durff ->  i think he does
19:49:26 alicemercer ->  compared to bottom of the page, doing in notes was nice.
19:49:39 JenniferW ->  just FYI -- I have known about tagging for about 18 months -- but it just clicked about 3 weeks ago
19:49:43 alicemercer ->  Remember I was typing on typewritter at start of colelge.
19:49:54 Durff ->  i'm starting tagging with MS tomorrow
19:49:58 JenniferW ->  Alice -- I typed on a typewriter through ALL college
19:49:59 alicemercer ->  JW I'm lazy about tagging
19:49:59 Lee ->  Hi Vicki!
19:50:08 JenniferW ->  Alice -- I finally got it -- tagging
19:50:16 JenniferW ->  it was like a DUH moment to me
19:50:23 Gary ->  My typwriter was a manual
19:50:24 alicemercer ->  Word processing made me a college student. I was too disorganized for typewriter
19:50:33 JenniferW ->  and I realized Tagging helps keep me organized
19:50:42 Durff ->  when i get tagging - i will tag ou
19:50:53 CathyE ->  Have to use bundles in delicious
19:50:55 alicemercer ->  Hey I have a good segue to the tagging.
19:51:00 alicemercer ->  Can I go up after this?
19:51:09 JenniferW ->  I remember typing in college -- and getting to the end of the page and having to start all over due to an error or forgetting to put in a citation -- hated it.
19:51:11 Durff ->  what alice?
19:51:12 JL ->  http://www.leaptag.com/

19:53:19 alicemercer ->  hey MLA for tagging?
19:53:38 Durff ->  to cite tagging?
19:53:50 JohnSchinker ->  You may be able to send it to the others, too. Scuttle uses the same api
19:53:50 Durff ->  hmmmm
19:54:07 alicemercer ->  Yeah, but will they have access to their portfolios?
19:54:19 CathyE ->  So back to the question- What is the first 2.0 site to teach someone who does not know
19:54:41 Durff ->  good question
19:54:43 alicemercer ->  Like I was thinking about links, and fellow students from my ed tech class I took last year. I have NO access to that class anymore.
19:54:52 alicemercer ->  Can't find people, links, etc .from the class site.
19:55:01 Durff ->  when i didn't know squat, i googled 'blogs
19:55:12 Durff ->  'and then 'wikis'
19:55:18 alicemercer ->  blogs I'd say
19:55:23 Durff ->  and the world opened up
19:55:33 Durff ->  it forgot to swallow me
19:55:48 alicemercer ->  You can tell who would buy a DeLorean and who wants a Honda here
19:56:01 CathyE ->  Does Jeff Flynn have Bill Fitzgerald for Friday?
19:56:18 Durff ->  DeLorean! Back to the Future!
19:56:27 Vicki Davis ->  Back on citations -- Stewart Mader author of Wikis in Education has a page on citing in wikis - http://www.wikiineducation.com/display/ikiw/Citations+in+MLA%2C+APA%2C+a... for all 3 styles. Thought you'd want the link.
19:56:32 dave ->  delorean?
19:56:51 JohnSchinker ->  I know someone who has a delorean
19:56:55 Durff ->  a car, dave
19:57:04 Durff ->  do you?
19:57:07 Durff ->  wow
19:57:12 dave ->  ah
19:57:16 Durff ->  that's a relic
19:57:17 dave ->  gull wing?
19:57:52 JohnSchinker ->  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/De_Lorean_DMC-12
19:58:11 alicemercer ->  I was thinking cutting edge, but for a very short time
19:58:29 Durff ->  what do you do with class blogs in K-12 at the end of the year?
19:58:57 Lee ->  they should do it on their own
19:59:01 alicemercer ->  I'm going to archive
19:59:15 Durff ->  how?
19:59:37 Durff ->  the newbie speaks...
20:00:06 JenniferW ->  I have archives since 1999
20:00:32 Durff ->  how do I archive?
20:00:37 JohnSchinker ->  my web site from 1999: http://staff.bbhcsd.org/schinkerj/oldsite/comp/
20:00:47 Durff ->  i have blogmeister and PBwikis
20:00:48 dave ->  just shout BACKUP really loudly
20:00:51 JenniferW ->  I have my website -- that archives as well as I backup to CD
20:01:23 Durff ->  okay, so just backup to a CD
20:01:30 dave ->  DVD
20:01:32 JenniferW ->  but my project archives are not proably even comparable to college courses
20:01:34 dave ->  external harddrive
20:01:43 dave ->  i used to backup to the server
20:01:49 JenniferW ->  yes, -- i can back up to DVD now -- and also anyone can save their work to a flash drive now
20:01:49 dave ->  no longer :(
20:01:51 Gary ->  and when you retire, turn over the blog/page to another teacher
20:02:01 JL ->  http://edubloggercon.wikispaces.com/
20:02:03 Durff ->  what if the server gets cleaned off?
20:02:04 dave ->  continuity
20:02:07 JenniferW ->  at my work -- we only backup for 30 days
20:02:22 JenniferW ->  however, a few months ago we got hit by lightning and LOST all data
20:02:50 dave ->  http://rs6.net/tn.jsp?t=d6f8u5bab.0.fp7gv5bab.slqgl4aab.17815&ts=S0239&p...
20:02:53 JenniferW ->  and at the end of each year -- they totally wipe all the teachers documents.  However, now that I am on board -- we might not delete content
20:02:55 Vicki Davis ->  We came up with a tagging standard for horizon project. http://horizonproject.wikispaces.com/Tagging+Standards
20:03:10 Durff ->  yeah, edubloggercon...virtually include us
20:03:14 Vicki Davis ->  I think all organizations should come up with a set of tagging standards when you have a projecg going.
20:03:19 JenniferW ->  I will be in the AIR
20:03:28 JenniferW ->  flying to GA
20:03:50 Durff ->  Vicki is overly efficient
20:04:05 JenniferW ->  I am not attending
20:04:06 Durff ->  I can't afford it
20:04:16 CathyE ->  I'm going to NECC
20:04:21 Vicki Davis ->  Oh, the tagging standard is actually what we're using for horizon project
20:04:30 Vicki Davis ->  From the horizon project researchers .
20:04:33 sharonp ->  will have to check out the tagging standards, Vicki
20:04:43 Vicki Davis ->  Oh yeah, I'm going!
20:04:44 sharonp ->  I am thinking about it
20:04:53 Vicki Davis ->  I'm on delayed stream!
20:04:54 sharonp ->  haven't booked my flights yet

20:09:47 alicemercer ->  NO I DON"T!
20:09:54 alicemercer ->  ACK!
20:10:05 alicemercer ->  My kids LOVE my theme which is MATURE
20:10:45 JenniferW ->  grins -- I have 17 wordpress templates
20:10:55 JenniferW ->  but none are
20:10:57 JenniferW ->  mature
20:11:01 Durff ->  how can we gang up on dave and make him take offense?
20:11:12 dave ->  oh...
20:11:16 JenniferW ->  I wanted a cute wordpress theme
20:11:18 Durff ->  :)
20:11:19 sharonp ->  oh that's easy
20:11:22 JenMad ->  http://designedtoinspire.com/blog/ how is my wp theme?
20:11:25 Durff ->  really?

20:11:52 JenniferW ->  http://www.onlineprojects4teachers.com/wordpress/
20:11:53 Durff ->  but he is
20:11:56 sharonp ->  or possibly that Bonny isn't a hot momma
20:12:03 dave ->  yup
20:12:07 Durff ->  no dave may not be, but oscar is
20:12:08 sharonp ->  although, my husband disagrees with me on that

20:13:54 JohnPederson ->  jenmad: :)
20:14:11 alicemercer ->  Can you put the link here, I had to leave Yugma
20:14:41 sharonp ->  i wanna see the angry bee theme!
20:14:54 alicemercer ->  Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the effort to placate the primary folks
20:15:27 alicemercer ->  BUT I think that the design aesthetic for primary grades sometimes leaks up to uppergrade elementary, and the kids are kind of beyond that.
20:15:34 Durff ->  oh my!
20:15:50 alicemercer ->  And they are beyond school bus, etc.
20:15:58 JenMad ->  my interweb tubes are getting snarky ... may get booted again ...
20:16:12 JenMad ->  if so ... THANK YOU to all!!!
20:16:48 Durff ->  it wasn't from me!
20:17:22 sharonp ->  wasn't me, dave!
20:17:31 sharonp ->  I don't know those words
20:17:50 sroseman ->  go and see Perfect Stranger ..lots of tech in the film..
20:17:54 alicemercer ->  I could be snarky about texas
20:17:56 sroseman ->  and hacking
20:18:02 alicemercer ->  but it wouldn't be nice
20:18:22 Durff ->  they don't
20:18:52 Durff ->  they don't realise that everything is traceable
20:19:28 Durff ->  I haved kids who don't realise that i get IP addresses
20:19:42 alicemercer ->  Yeah durff
20:19:51 Durff ->  and that i know from which computer they are on
20:19:55 dave ->  http://edtechtalk.com/node/1571#comments
20:21:22 Durff ->  oh yeah, and call me that 'terrible' name anytime
20:21:37 Durff ->  17 min
20:22:06 Durff ->  it's all in how you take it
20:23:03 Durff ->  yes! opinions are the beginning of critical analysis
20:23:51 Durff ->  and i apologize to my step-mother, who had two MDs and a PhD
20:24:29 alicemercer ->  Hey you realized it, and apologized. Was it like Don Imus or something?
20:24:49 alicemercer ->  NO I ASKED IF IT WAS LIKE THAT?
20:24:50 Durff ->  not that bad
20:24:57 alicemercer ->  Well...
20:24:57 JenniferW ->  Cathy -- did you view the link above??
20:25:07 JenniferW ->  it helped me understand what they are talking about
20:25:55 alicemercer ->  Saying geek? Umm, that's petty on anonymous' part

20:28:04 sroseman ->  great show ..thanks
20:28:04 alicemercer ->  I would say I WAS more offensive about elementary and the design sense. He was just catering to it. I wasn't offended?
20:28:52 dave ->  john schinker eats worms
20:29:00 Durff ->  oh that's low
20:29:11 Durff ->  and not vegan
20:29:20 alicemercer ->  THis is the CLEANEST online community I've ever been on
20:29:23 Durff ->  begans are more intelligent
20:29:46 jeff ->  http://staff.bbhcsd.org/schinkerj/archives/2006/11/14/edtech-weekly/
20:29:51 Durff ->  vegans, not begans
