 JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: K -  safe arena

 lnitsche -> EdTechTalk: I work with all elementary grade students.  My fifth graders have been the most active in tapped in.

 JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: group room can be created

 sendkathy -> EdTechTalk: lnitsche, is it better than a wiki or google docs?

 JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: user names and passwords assigned to students

 lnitsche -> EdTechTalk: It is just another forum for them to chat and share resources.

 sendkathy -> EdTechTalk: Sounds safer

 JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: which lands them in the ONLY room created by the teacher

 sharonp -> EdTechTalk: http://techchicktips.net

 JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: it is great for typing skill improvement

 JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: you can have more than  class meet in the same room

 JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: from ANYWHERE

 JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: and students can't go outside the room

 lnitsche -> EdTechTalk: I like that I receive a record of everything that happens in the room, every conversation, every login, etc.

 JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: so you are in a protected environment

 JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: AND that chats/transcripts

 JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: are sent to the teachers

 Lisa M Lane -> EdTechTalk: anything there for college teachers?

 JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: OH YES

 cheryloakes wow -> EdTechTalk: transcripts are a great feature, especially for links

 JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: Lisa

 JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: yes, you easily could

 JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: a lot of colleges use this arena

 sendkathy -> EdTechTalk: It sounds like an unconference

 Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: Unconference in perpetuity

 JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: so it is available to anyone

 JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: and voice chat could change that

 sharonp -> EdTechTalk: used to belong to a MUSH - Multi-User Shell (for gaming purposes)

 cheryloakes wow -> EdTechTalk: even on dial up it is very user friendly

 Lisa M Lane -> EdTechTalk: How do I find out which groups meet when?

 JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: Lisa -- the calendar link is http://tappedin.org/tappedin/do/CalendarAction?

 cheryloakes wow -> EdTechTalk: lisa, check the calendar and you can subscribe to different groups
