Thanks to Kathy Shields from Creekview Elementary School in Alpharetta, GA
for sharing her experiences using technology in the classroom.

We gathered a couple of links to help us design podcasting lesson for
elementary kids

We found a great resource in Kathy's Blog http://ripplingpond.wordpress.com 

We all agree that StarFall is a perfect site for K-1 calendar time

19:47:52 CathyE -> EdTechTalk: Yes- I use iTunes
19:47:55 DanitaR -> EdTechTalk: hey there!
19:48:01 Durff -> EdTechTalk: then just open it
19:48:06 sharons -> EdTechTalk: i am thinking about linking form our school websites in parent and student info
19:48:14 DanitaR -> EdTechTalk: thanks for the comments on my blog - I enjoy reading what you write
19:48:15 Durff -> EdTechTalk: then click on the store
19:48:21 Durff -> EdTechTalk: then podcats
19:48:29 Durff -> EdTechTalk: then choose grammar girl
19:48:51 Durff -> EdTechTalk: oh, probably you could do that link
19:48:55 CathyE -> EdTechTalk: http://www.lib.msu.edu/corby/reviews/posted/ostrow.htm
19:49:12 Durff -> EdTechTalk: I put badges on my website for parents
19:49:19 Durff -> EdTechTalk: like Kathy's
19:49:23 sharons -> EdTechTalk: thanks ! re grammar girl
19:49:41 Durff -> EdTechTalk: the badges for some reason are simpler than links for our parents
19:50:02 sharons -> EdTechTalk: i don;t know wht a badge is?
19:50:12 Durff -> EdTechTalk: Yackpack
19:50:25 Durff -> EdTechTalk: podacasts in spanish
19:50:40 Durff -> EdTechTalk: the one on one thing is working in our school
19:50:49 DanitaR -> EdTechTalk: good idea
19:51:20 Durff -> EdTechTalk: the free training tuesdays after school when we have to be there anyway are not attended
19:51:41 DanitaR -> EdTechTalk: I have the same problem - low involvement
19:51:49 Durff -> EdTechTalk: except one, who can't come now because she goes to the oncologist
19:52:03 Durff -> EdTechTalk: keep plugging Danita
19:52:17 DanitaR -> EdTechTalk: wish someone could think of the magic enticer :o)
19:52:35 Durff -> EdTechTalk: as they see us using the tech, the fear abates
19:52:42 Durff -> EdTechTalk: food
19:52:47 DanitaR -> EdTechTalk: that's true
19:52:51 Durff -> EdTechTalk: I tried that too
19:52:58 Durff -> EdTechTalk: no go here
19:52:59 DanitaR -> EdTechTalk: :D
19:53:07 Durff -> EdTechTalk: but i was happy
19:53:08 DanitaR -> EdTechTalk: chocolate has helped
19:53:16 Durff -> EdTechTalk: dark choc
19:53:20 DanitaR -> EdTechTalk: wikis are catching on at one of my middle schools
19:53:30 Durff -> EdTechTalk: more bioflavonoids
19:53:46 Durff -> EdTechTalk: how?
19:53:50 DanitaR -> EdTechTalk: one class did one and now all the kids want to make them
19:53:57 Durff -> EdTechTalk: :)

19:55:03 DanitaR -> EdTechTalk: but, baby steps
