 21:22:44  jcox  Moodle is free

 21:22:47  jcox  If you want to host it yourself

 21:22:49  Durff  moodle is free

 21:23:04  patruffing  i can't host...no web server

 21:23:05  Durff  it is a download

 21:23:07  jcox  Having gone through the process of installing, and then the painful upgrade, have it hosted :)

 21:23:09  jo mcleay  what an interesting idea Jason

 21:23:13  Durff  to a server

 21:23:18  Csouthard  Are you all skyping too?

 21:23:26  Vicki Davis  I like skype an expert -- that is really a cool title.

 21:23:28  Durff  who?

 21:23:41  Durff  hi jen

 21:23:43  grahamwegner  skype is blocked in south oz schools

 21:23:46  Jennifer W  Hi Lisa

 21:23:48  mjantzi  Skyped with students in Cairo, Egypt.

 21:23:55  cheryloakes wow2.0  siteground hosts moodle for 6.95 per month

 21:23:56  Jennifer W  Skype is blocked -- but MySpace is wide open???

 21:24:00  Durff  no jenhurd

 21:24:01  jcox  lol

 21:24:02  sharonp  I have been booted out of skype conversatin - my stubborn mac wouldn't let me mute and teh blues music was getting too distracting (as was the wind)

 21:24:07  Csouthard  so we're just chatting tonight?

 21:24:07  Sue Waters  Our gov departments don't like Skype

 21:24:08  Durff  butr hi to you too

 21:24:14  Diane H  How do you make connections with your experts?

 21:24:16  Vicki Davis  Some don't like skype

 21:24:17  Jennifer W  because???? --- not like skype??

 21:24:21  Vicki Davis  We are on channel A

 21:24:24  Vicki Davis  Can you not hear?

 21:24:27  Durff  Meebo

 21:24:29  patruffing  too much bandwidth?

 21:24:30  Durff  Evoca

 21:24:35  Vicki Davis  I'm trying to figure out how many cannot hear.

 21:24:35  jcox  Skype likes to jump around and find open ports

 21:24:38  Durff  Skype

 21:24:46  Jennifer W  really???  I did not know that

 21:24:46  jo mcleay  skype is a problem at my school because of bandwidth I think

 21:24:48  Durff  Elluminate

 21:24:48  jcox  It's pretty hard to block, and opens up a lot of stuff you might want to block.

 21:24:54  Jennifer W  about PORTS

 21:25:00  jerihurd  how do I find you on SKype?

 21:25:04  Sue Waters  Google Talk seems to be less of a problem

 21:25:13  Durff  email address

 21:25:18  jo mcleay  that's interesting sue

 21:25:19  Sue Waters  We use Google Talk not a problem

 21:25:20  jcox  Is that available on macs yet?

 21:25:21  cheryloakes wow2.0  does google talk work on macs now?

 21:25:22  Durff  finds people on skyped

 21:25:23  Jennifer W  Jeri -- right now, we are at our limit

 21:25:29  Jennifer W  OH -- sory

 21:25:32  Jennifer W  you mean in the future

 21:25:35  Jennifer W  I am JenW0424

 21:25:36  Sue Waters  not sure will ask my mac friends

 21:25:36  jerihurd  oh, ok

 21:25:37  Jennifer W  on Skype

 21:25:38  patruffing  i will have to look into google talk

 21:25:40  sharonp  that's funny - my school gave me skype but balked at google talk

 21:25:49  Sue Waters  Google Talk is good

 21:26:05  sharonp  one needs to have a google accoujnt and they didn't want the kids to have access to email on campus

 21:26:23  patruffing  that is always the problem...email for the kids

 21:26:25  jo mcleay  we do have emil for each student

 21:26:30  jo mcleay  email

 21:26:31  sharonp  hey I love google - my bro in law works there - have a funky new google girl mug this week!

 21:26:38  patruffing  we have used our wiki mail to communicate in class

 21:26:43  Durff  yes jo - use gaggle

 21:26:53  Jennifer W  gaggle or google??

 21:26:54  sharonp  what a good idea - wiki email - of course!

 21:26:58  jo mcleay  ok i'll try that Lisa

 21:26:59  Sue Waters  Lost sound

 21:26:59  Durff  hello jenhurd

 21:27:14  nzchrissy  Is there much of a difference between skype and google talk - apart from access

 21:27:16  sharonp  bring the expert in

 21:27:18  Jennifer W  Sue Waters -- have you ever lived in the Southern California area??

 21:27:22  joycevalenza  hi jeri

 21:27:29  Durff  Sue try another audio player

 21:27:32  Sue Waters  Never even been to US

 21:27:35  Jennifer W  ahhhhh

 21:27:42  Diane H  It's amazing how professional the students become when engaged with experts.

 21:27:43  cheryloakes wow2.0  thanks for helping Durff

 21:27:51  jerihurd  hey, joyce!

 21:27:56  Durff  i did nothing

 21:28:19  Durff  chrissy - they are similiar

 21:28:25  Jennifer W  Hi Sue -- I just wondered because I interviewed a Sue Waters in 1977

 21:28:28  sharonp  I would like to know what constitutes as professional development for Australian teachers

 21:28:28  Sue Waters  Got sound back but lost chat screen

 21:28:38  Jennifer W  only remember because I won a prize for the interview

 21:28:45  Sue Waters  Not me sorry but my sites are Mobile Technology in TAFE

 21:28:51  Jennifer W  ahhhhhh

 21:28:54  Vicki Davis  OK, Sharon, we'll make sure we get that one in.

 21:28:59  jo mcleay  Jason we have 75 minute period

 21:29:13  Durff  that's long

 21:29:19  jo mcleay  I love it

 21:29:29  Durff  how true

 21:29:29  Jason Hando  ok, Jo, that is a good length

 21:29:33  Jason Hando  would like that

 21:29:43  AliceMercer  JO, are you doing activities, and projects?

 21:29:50  Durff  i like the no block thing

 21:30:05  jo mcleay  yeah we are encouraged to vary the activities

 21:30:18  Jason Hando  we have filter for last 6 mths - no myspace, youtube etc

 21:30:20  AliceMercer  You'd have to Jo, or they'd fall asleep/revolt

 21:30:24  jcox  Teachers don't take advantage of longer blocks, from what I've seen...it's not a time to split the block up and do different projects mixed with lectures, it's just straight lectures

 21:30:41  jo mcleay  Haven't lectured for years

 21:30:44  patruffing  can you give us your school's website so we could get to know more about how things work at your school?

 21:30:46  AliceMercer  Great, block schedule leading to longer lectures, lol

 21:30:57  Vicki Davis  I think the research is showing that teachers aren't taking advantage of blocks -- I'm not sure where I read that.

 21:30:59  jcox  Mostly at the high school level, I haven't been out for that long

 21:31:00  jo mcleay  www.materchristi.edu.au

 21:31:05  patruffing  thanks

 21:31:07  Jason Hando  http://www.mas.nsw.edu.au is my school's site

 21:31:08  cheryloakes wow2.0  the chat with all links will be published on Thur. at edtechtalk.com

 21:31:12  Vicki Davis  So I'll have to find it to share it -- Cheri do you know if you've seen anything about that?

 21:31:21  grahamwegner  primary school teachers have so much more flexibility

 21:31:24  Sue Waters  Blocking varies State by State; and can be school by school

 21:31:24  sharonp  the survey I mentioned earlier the students reported that they wanted less standardized testing and less filtering on the Internet

 21:31:29  Jason Hando  MCEETYA

 21:31:40  Durff  who?

 21:31:46  AliceMercer  I think they vary between 9th and 10-12th here.

 21:32:10  AliceMercer  They have/had a school within a school for 9th here to try to transition kids to comprehensive HS

 21:32:11  CheriT  I haven't heard anything about the block system

 21:32:17  sharonp  Speak Up survey

 21:32:29  jo mcleay  I can't wait till that happens to me Judy

 21:32:29  Vicki Davis  I'm going to ask Dr. Shepherd I think it came from her.

 21:32:48  Jason Hando  I'd like to share about the new catholic schools in sydney run by Greg Whitby if possible

 21:32:51  patruffing  jo...I am at a Catholic school also

 21:33:24  Mickprest  it depends on whether the people on charge of the filters at the school have an open or closed view of schoolkids

 21:33:34  Sue Waters  Transformation coulc be negative

 21:33:36  Durff  you know too much jason

 21:33:44  Sue Waters  NSW is blocking a lot

 21:33:48  Jason Hando  often the tech support guys run the filtration unfort

 21:33:58  Jason Hando  durff ;-)

 21:33:59  sharonp  yes, often they are the ones

 21:33:59  jcox  Facebook, Myspace, stuff like that can't really be controlled.

 21:34:14  Durff  yeaqh, i hear ya

 21:34:20  Vicki Davis  Oh no, I'm on blogger too!

 21:34:33  cheryloakes wow2.0  I am on blogger too.

 21:34:34  jcox  Blocks can be applied but students will still get to them, and once one figures out how they all know how.

 21:34:36  Jason Hando  so am I!

 21:34:49  Durff  what's wrong with blogger?

 21:34:55  jcox  Examples like airaim, tons of proxy servers, all that junk.

 21:35:03  Durff  oh!

 21:35:05  Mickprest  Judy,the problem we are striking in Sydney CEO and Web 2.0 is bandwidth!!  But I do agree that qweb 2.0 is beginning to build.

 21:35:06  sharonp  my daughter discovered I had a facebook account last night - it was pretty funny - students will behave themselves if they realize they are being monitored

 21:35:10  Durff  i disagree

 21:35:18  Durff  thank you very much

 21:35:39  Durff  i am blogger

 21:35:52  Vicki Davis  There are some bad blogs on blogger -- but there are bad blogs anywhere.

 21:35:56  Sue Waters  I agree that there is too much blocking

 21:35:59  Durff  and just posted a Christian rock group

 21:36:32  grahamwegner  rachel boyd is very cool

 21:36:36  Jason Hando  blocking is a knee j*rk reaction that is only option while leadership catches up

 21:36:39  Durff  she is

 21:36:41  alicebarr  Why are the IT guys making the educational decisions?

 21:36:41  sharonp  establishing good relationships with the tech support peeps is critical

 21:36:45  nzchrissy  Rachel Boyd is awesome!!

 21:36:47  jcox  lol

 21:36:54  Sue Waters  Actually it is not always the IT people

 21:37:01  Jennifer W  Rachel Boyd is COOL -- we just met 2 nights ago

 21:37:02  Vicki Davis  IT should not be making educational decisions.

 21:37:07  Durff  admin should be making the decisions

 21:37:09  Jennifer W  LOL -- I am IT

 21:37:12  CheriT  we need to be educating our adminstrators so they are the ones who are making informed decisinos

 21:37:13  Vicki Davis  Filtering in the chat room.

 21:37:15  Durff  sounds like politics

 21:37:16  Cathy N from SC  but admin trust the it

 21:37:17  jcox  As my experience as IT, it hasn't been me

 21:37:23  Jennifer W  and my admin trusts my judgement

 21:37:25  Sue Waters  The problem is they have to respond to Gov auditors

 21:37:25  jo mcleay  Jen I wish you were in my school

 21:37:29  alicebarr  I agree CheriT

 21:37:30  Jennifer W  Me too JO

 21:37:31  Cathy N from SC  the hardware it folks

 21:37:35  patruffing  i do education AND  i am IT

 21:37:36  jcox  Sue has it

 21:37:44  Vicki Davis  Jen is an exceptional IT person -- she has classroom experience.

 21:37:45  patruffing  i control all the filtering...haha

 21:37:48  Jennifer W  you also need to push for having EDUcATORS in the IT department

 21:37:51  Csouthard  We just had this conversation @ our school.  We'd like to meet w/ the IT people to collaborative more. 

 21:37:56  Jennifer W  instead of TECHIES

 21:38:03  joycevalenza  We have to get word out about our projects.  Make administrators eembarrassed not to have them going on at their schools

 21:38:07  jcox  You need both, imo

 21:38:10  sharonp  bringing the tech support peeps into the conversation and SHOWING them how what we are doing is educationally great works wonders

 21:38:14  sharonp  bringing the techies into the conversation and showing them  the educational benefits works wonders

 21:38:16  Jennifer W  we also do well with bribes!!!  :)

 21:38:17  Durff  it is a perfect word

 21:38:20  Vicki Davis  IT folks are often trying to free up bandwidth versus looking at academic use.

 21:38:30  sharonp  sorry double post - having wifi issues

 21:38:32  Jennifer W  I think that is a blanket statement

 21:38:35  sharonp  feed the techies!

 21:38:41  Jennifer W  I think bandwidth is an issue

 21:38:43  jcox  Please, we're hungry

 21:38:45  Jennifer W  that needs to be addressed

 21:38:50  Csouthard  Connect & Collaborate

 21:38:50  Sue Waters  We should be educating them on appropriate use and we can't if we block

 21:38:51  Jennifer W  but it is easier to buy more space

 21:38:55  Jennifer W  and they need to realize that

 21:39:03  CheriT  we in the US need to catch up with Japan on band width

 21:39:08  Jennifer W  but bandwidth should not be the deciding factor

 21:39:11  jo mcleay  Hi Rachel

 21:39:12  patruffing  jen...easier to buy more bandwidth?

 21:39:17  jcox  You can educate students all they want, they're going to see what they want to see

 21:39:22  Jennifer W  HELLO RACHEL -- its MacsMom!!!

 21:39:25  Csouthard  What is Japan doing that we aren't?

 21:39:30  Rachel  Hi! I am late but I am here!

 21:39:30  Sue Waters  Yes but we can go to far

 21:39:31  joycevalenza  an educators should make curricular decisions

 21:39:31  nzchrissy  Hi Rachel

 21:39:33  Jennifer W  Pat -- we were able to purchase more

 21:39:37  Jennifer W  through our servers

 21:39:38  Cathy N from SC  bandwidth is the easiest way to say no  for some district admin

 21:39:40  Jennifer W  don't ask me how

 21:39:43  Durff  how many in the chat room?

 21:39:43  CheriT  their band width is about 100 times what we have

 21:39:44  Jennifer W  but we were able to

 21:39:48  Jennifer W  27

 21:39:51  patruffing  i just got ours bumped up, but not what i really want

 21:39:52  Durff  wow

 21:40:03  Jennifer W  Bandwidth is an easy out

 21:40:04  patruffing  money is ALWAYS an issue

 21:40:07  Jennifer W  you need them to PROVE it

 21:40:11  Cathy N from SC  hey melinda

 21:40:14  cheryloakes wow2.0  oh hello melinda, is the baby in bed?

 21:40:16  patruffing  prove what?

 21:40:19  Mickprest  The reality is that the kids who really want to get around things the filters are using the proxy masking sites.

 21:40:19  mmiller  Hello everyone

 21:40:20  Durff  good then they see the good youtubes too

 21:40:20  Jennifer W  we thought that our bandwidth was an issue -- with the old IT guys

 21:40:24  Sue Waters  But they are going to do it at home so better to teach them at school

 21:40:24  Jennifer W  and it WAS NOT

 21:40:32  Jennifer W  but no one knew it

 21:40:37  mmiller  No I have relatives here and she is running around like a crazy child

 21:40:38  Jennifer W  so they had to just accept the IT's determination

 21:40:46  jcox  As a note, if any teachers need to get around a specific block, get a server and set up squidproxy

 21:40:50  cheryloakes wow2.0  mmilller, live is busy with the babe.

 21:41:03  mmiller  Cheryl, I have pic to send you of the youngest WOW member

 21:41:05  Sue Waters  Ideally lets stop them from blocking in the first place

 21:41:11  Jason Hando  agree Graham

 21:41:14  cheryloakes wow2.0  oh, please send it along, that will be great

 21:41:21  joycevalenza  use a torn newspaper to demo this concept

 21:41:27  Jennifer W  we thought out Bandwidth would hit the roof with United Streaming -- and it didn't even make a dent

 21:41:35  Rachel  and we all know Graham is addicted to twitter!

 21:41:38  Durff  it's a game

 21:41:43  Durff  a challenge

 21:41:46  Sue Waters  That is crazy

 21:41:51  Vicki Davis  He is a bit twit happy -- ha ha!

 21:41:52  patruffing  i don't agree to unblock everything

 21:41:59  Sue Waters  And as you find them they block them

 21:42:04  Jennifer W  is he twitting now???

 21:42:06  jcox  Good tip

 21:42:11  patruffing  i unblock as needed

 21:42:11  Sue Waters  sorry I work for a TAFE system

 21:42:14  jo mcleay  We have to teach stude nts what to do when confronted with questionable material

 21:42:15  Cathy N from SC  how to use torn paper joyce?

 21:42:15  Jennifer W  I would NEVER unblock everything

 21:42:24  Jennifer W  for a multitude of reasons

 21:42:28  patruffing  if I want to show kids a really good vid on youtube i unblock

 21:42:30  Durff  that would be me...gettting around those blocking guys

 21:42:36  Vicki Davis  I agree, Jo.

 21:42:42  Jennifer W  my boss calls our filter our REGULATOR

 21:42:46  Jennifer W  not our FILTER

 21:42:48  Vicki Davis  Pat, you have access to your filter like I do?

 21:42:48  Sue Waters  In a big organisation like I work unblocking takes months

 21:42:48  patruffing  then i reblock when educ use is over

 21:42:51  Jason Hando  its a good conversation to have - what do we think about blocking

 21:42:54  cheryloakes wow2.0  sharon, ready to come back on skype?

 21:42:55  Rachel  Yes, all my kids have unfiltered systems at home

 21:42:57  jcox  Kids love p0rn...and if they can't get p0rn, they'll go for excerpts from romance novels

 21:43:00  patruffing  yes...i am the filter admin

 21:43:08  Sue Waters  my kids are also unfiltered

 21:43:09  patruffing  i am the everything admin if it has a plug

 21:43:13  Jennifer W  LOLOL

 21:43:20  Jennifer W  I totally understand Pat

 21:43:47  Jennifer W  do you do the webpage too???

 21:43:54  Diane H  Do you have to be young to be techno savvy :-)

 21:43:55  Cathy N from SC  their phil--ignorance is bliss

 21:44:02  jcox  Yes

 21:44:03  Sue Waters  no

 21:44:07  Jennifer W  LOL -- Hope NOt

 21:44:11  patruffing  i am old...and i am techier than my kids

 21:44:18  Sue Waters  Last time I looked I am not young

 21:44:20  Cathy N from SC  me to

 21:44:26  Jennifer W  I am closer to 50 than young

 21:44:30  Jennifer W  so Hope Not

 21:44:31  Sue Waters  :)

 21:44:32  Cathy N from SC  is 43 young? I think so

 21:44:35  Rachel  I know way too many great NZ teachers who are at least twice my age and they are VERY techno savvy!

 21:44:37  Durff  yes

 21:44:38  Jennifer W  I do-- CathyN

 21:44:48  patruffing  i have passed 50 a while ago

 21:44:57  Durff  Cathy you are young

 21:44:58  Jennifer W  and you survived??  LOL, so there is hope for me???

 21:44:59  jo mcleay  me too patruffing

 21:45:05  alicebarr  Jcox I disagree, I have seen students be quite responsible when ur cmes to

 21:45:10  patruffing  the best is yet to come jen

 21:45:10  Cathy N from SC  i also know young teachers  who are technophobes

 21:45:13  alicebarr  p*rn

 21:45:14  Jennifer W  I hope

 21:45:19  Mickprest  I find that the problem is (as Jason just said) that the school leaders just don't understand this web stuff. They can handle bullying on the bus etc but they feel powerless in this web environment that they don't understand so they kneej*rk!  Since the shoot (my asterixed word wors fileter by this site!!) stops with them it is understandable- we need to work with them too!!

 21:45:22  Cathy N from SC  i blame the teacher educ programs

 21:45:24  patruffing  i don't care about looking foolish anymore...i try anything

 21:45:29  patruffing  (legal)

 21:45:32  jo mcleay  I agree pat

 21:45:33  Jennifer W  LOLOLOL

 21:45:33  Durff  i agree with alicebarr

 21:45:35  Jason Hando  Mick - spot on!

 21:45:37  Jennifer W  yeah right, Pat

 21:45:44  Sue Waters  Agree Mick

 21:45:46  joycevalenza  isn't that a strange thing. do any of our local colleagues really read our blogs?

 21:45:50  jcox  I had the opportunity to monitor via a VNC connection wha tstudents look at in school

 21:45:55  Jennifer W  My boss reads my blog

 21:45:55  Sue Waters  no they do not read our blog

 21:46:01  nzchrissy  So does mine

 21:46:04  jcox  And then I enjoyed looking through their computers to find out what they were doing out of school

 21:46:08  Jennifer W  and so do friends

 21:46:09  Cathy N from SC  i wish

 21:46:11  joycevalenza  mine might

 21:46:11  Durff  i read your blog joyce

 21:46:12  patruffing  my principal doesn't even look at our website

 21:46:15  mmiller  Careful - Principal Miller is learning a s quickly as she can:):):)

 21:46:16  joycevalenza  not sure.

 21:46:17  Csouthard  We have so many teachers who won't establish student blogs b/c they're afraid

 21:46:18  jo mcleay  My boss doesn't have time to read my log

 21:46:21  jerihurd  grin--well, I'm teaching a blogging workshop to classmates, and when I teach them BLoglines, I'm making them add mine!

 21:46:22  jcox  Even the ones you wouldn't think to, they love the p0rn

 21:46:24  Jennifer W  Pat -- we need you ON our show!!!

 21:46:24  Rachel  My principal reads my blog too.... but he never makes a comment

 21:46:32  joycevalenza  thanks, durff

 21:46:39  patruffing  ha

 21:46:43  Cathy N from SC  i send forwards from blogs to my princ all the time

 21:46:46  mmiller  I had to tell my teachers how to find the comments that I left them

 21:46:48  CheriT  lost the sound

 21:47:03  Jennifer W  MMiller -- but now they have it???

 21:47:06  Csouthard  I don't have audio either

 21:47:07  jerihurd  yeah, Joyce.  Do your school colleagues realize what a guru you are?

 21:47:10  joycevalenza  good point, vicki!

 21:47:11  CheriT  it's back

 21:47:11  Maria  Absolutely - we need to encourage and support our new teachers

 21:47:12  Durff  use a different player Dr. Toledo

 21:47:20  cheryloakes wow2.0  we were a little quiet, is the sound back?

 21:47:22  Durff  oh now you tell me

 21:47:23  mmiller  yes, I told them not to block the comments

 21:47:28  Jennifer W  Ahhh

 21:47:29  Cathy N from SC  probably since she travels extensively--say Joyce?

 21:47:30  Diane H  Ontario has an online network just for new teachers!

 21:47:31  Jennifer W  and you use what blogger???

 21:47:38  joycevalenza  huh?  i play it very low key at school.  shhhh

 21:47:38  Jennifer W  wordpress??  edublogs??

 21:47:41  Durff  bless you

 21:47:43  Rachel  Yes, I know several good teachers who are no longer teaching - we have lost them!

 21:47:48  Cathy N from SC  so do i

 21:47:50  mmiller  we use edublogs at school

 21:47:55  Rachel  The pressure of the job

 21:47:57  Jennifer W  ahhhh -- are you content??

 21:47:58  Cathy N from SC  I share  but don't push mine

 21:48:02  Csouthard  we use classblogmeister

 21:48:04  Jennifer W  with edublogs??

 21:48:15  Vicki Davis  Joyce is so amazing!  I think you're great, Joyce, I loved meeting you at NECC.

 21:48:29  Cathy N from SC  and I too Joyce

 21:48:31  patruffing  i am looking for the best blog site for students gr 4-8 approx

 21:48:40  Jennifer W  I am quite happy with Word Press

 21:48:41  Vicki Davis  http://classroom20.ning.com

 21:48:41  Durff  we use class blogmeister with kids and another professionally

 21:48:44  Jennifer W  quite HAPPY

 21:48:49  Durff  okay not we just

 21:48:51  Rachel  Oh I WISH i had a IWB!!

 21:48:56  joycevalenza  shucks, vicki.  I've been in awe of you

 21:49:00  Cathy N from SC  what about Moodle or Drupaled

 21:49:02  Csouthard  I like classroom20

 21:49:22  alicebarr  podcasts are GREAT prof dev

 21:49:26  Durff  we all are in awe of the WOW ladies

 21:49:45  Rachel  podcasts and blogs are great - free and available anywhere!

 21:49:51  Vicki Davis  We're all "just" educators -- I'm thankful to be a part of a great group of people.

 21:49:57  Rachel  even to us in NZ or OZ!

 21:49:58  Vicki Davis  Lots of good hearts and minds.

 21:50:13  cheryloakes wow2.0  don't forget the online K12 online conference in October 2007

 21:50:25  Durff  dating?

 21:50:29  Cathy N from SC  sped dating--now that's an attn getter

 21:50:30  Sue Waters  Posted my response yesterday

 21:50:42  Rachel  Yes looking forwards to K12 conference

 21:50:48  nzchrissy  me too

 21:50:50  Diane H  Very cool idea!

 21:50:50  Cathy N from SC  Jason what is your twitter name?

 21:50:50  Csouthard  I'm excited about the K12 Conference

 21:50:54  jerihurd  I'm looking forward to it, too

 21:51:00  Durff  a jigsaw

 21:51:06  Jason Hando  http://twitter.com/jhando

 21:51:07  Rachel  wow that's a cool idea

 21:51:15  Cathy N from SC  thx

 21:51:17  Durff  now i can breathe again

 21:51:18  mmiller  I think we are going to host some open computer lab times for the online conference and give teachers credti

 21:51:19  Csouthard  What about TappediN?

 21:51:20  Vicki Davis  http://twitter.com/coolcatteacher -- I'll share mine too!

 21:51:23  jcox  How do you motivate teachers to care about technology?

 21:51:27  Jennifer W  love TAPPED IN

 21:51:42  cheryloakes wow2.0  our tapped in show has been downloaded 1455 times, a record for us.

 21:51:44  Rachel  PD online is great!

 21:51:49  Cathy N from SC  my pro deve happens online most as well

 21:51:56  Csouthard  Teachers have to play w/ technology to be less scared

 21:51:58  Rachel  but I still like meeting people in real life!

 21:52:00  patruffing  i have to say, though, that sometimes I feel overwhelmed by so much out there to try out...i can't keep up with Real Life

 21:52:07  Diane H  Go with the "unconference"!

 21:52:13  Jennifer W  I agree, Rachel

 21:52:17  Cathy N from SC  lose tv and you'll gain time

 21:52:28  Vicki Davis  http://parra-bib-blog.blogspot.com/ - From Judy - great group blog.

 21:52:30  patruffing  i don't watch TV

 21:52:30  Rachel  nothing like getting away to somewhere and truly immersing yourself in a conference

 21:52:35  jcox  Lose a family, a job, various other junk, you'll gain time

 21:52:37  patruffing  i am mostly on the computer

 21:52:37  Csouthard  What unconference?

 21:52:43  nzchrissy  We love unconfrerences

 21:52:47  Sue Waters  :)

 21:52:47  jcox  And you'll find out why students have so much time to get around school filters

 21:52:52  Csouthard  I'm only here b/c the baby is sleeping :D

 21:52:58  Cathy N from SC  m on right now while the guys watch a baseball game

 21:53:01  Jennifer W  Pat -- I think I use your TV time allowance then  :)

 21:53:06  patruffing  hah

 21:53:06  mmiller  In defense of principals, leaders, admin everywhere, our job is VERY people oriented and some days we are dealing with so much we don't even get to our email until noon and then we have 50 by then.

 21:53:15  Durff  i'm glad the baby is sleeping!

 21:53:17  Rachel  NZ had an online conference this year (the first) and the main thing that came out of it for our teachers was that they couldn't manage to look at the presentations whilst also full time teaching -

 21:53:26  Rachel  although I made the time!

 21:53:32  Jennifer W  is the All Stars game on already???

 21:53:38  nzchrissy  You do it if you want to

 21:53:45  Cathy N from SC  i have wow and other shows listed in my google calendar

 21:53:45  nzchrissy  you make time that is

 21:53:48  Rachel  all about motivation?

 21:53:51  Csouthard  K12 is during the school day?

 21:53:54  Rachel  and need

 21:53:54  Durff  true Chrissy

 21:53:57  Jennifer W  CathyN -- you are a dedicated teacher!!!

 21:54:07  Cathy N from SC  even 2nit i logged in a little late due to SL

 21:54:11  Vicki Davis  http://edubloggerworld.ning.com

 21:54:12  jcox  How do you create that though?  Why would someone who already ahs a full plate want the extra work?

 21:54:25  jcox  And pouring through all this stuff is work

 21:54:32  Csouthard  If you want something done - ask a busy person - they know how to juggle

 21:54:35  patruffing  i do professional development for our teachers after school once a week, and i bribe them with snacks, and they even get paid to come...it is still a struggle

 21:54:45  Rachel  NZ conference is available virtually until at least the end of the year

 21:54:46  nzchrissy  if it's part of your philosophy and you believe it will work with your teaching and work for your students you will do it

 21:54:49  nzchrissy  and learn it

 21:54:52  Rachel  oh yes - bribes are good

 21:54:56  jcox  lol

 21:54:58  Cathy N from SC  NZ address?

 21:55:00  nzchrissy  yes those too!!

 21:55:01  jcox  philosophy vs bribes

 21:55:11  jcox  nz sounds like a nice place :)

 21:55:12  Vicki Davis  Those interested in an international edubloggercon - http://edubloggerworld.ning.com

 21:55:22  nzchrissy  Napier, New Zealand - NZ is great!!

 21:55:25  Cathy N from SC  thx vicki

 22:05:18  cheryloakes wow2.0  wes fryer has an iphone, doesn't steve dembo?

 22:05:23  Rachel  Yes I have to get Firefox downloaded on our school mac pod - safari is not wiki friendly

 22:05:24  mmiller  my wow of the week was voicethread

 22:05:26  Jennifer W  I know Wes does

 22:05:39  Jennifer W  he did a great post on waiting for his IPHONE

 22:05:46  cheryloakes wow2.0  oh, do you hve voicethread on your blog?

 22:05:48  darrendraper  I said to Wes that iPhones were too expensive, he says "I couldn't agree more".

 22:05:55  alicebarr  I played with my friend's iPhone this weekend SP COOL

 22:05:57  darrendraper  Then I find out he's getting one the next day!

 22:06:02  mmiller  not yet, i may be mentioning the wrong thing

 22:06:06  darrendraper  AT&T.  The nerve.

 22:06:07  cheryloakes wow2.0  I am waiting for the next version iphone to work in Maine.

 22:06:10  Jennifer W  yep -- he didn't protest THAT much

 22:06:11  Durff  i have a free phone

 22:06:13  Rachel  I certainly couldn't afford a iphone

 22:06:18  Rachel  so I will just drool

 22:06:19  Sue Waters  Not nice to talk about iphones when Aussie guests can not buy them

 22:06:24  Durff  i won't pay

 22:06:25  darrendraper  Will an iPhone work down under?

 22:06:27  alicebarr  It worked in Maine Cheryl

 22:06:31  Durff  too cheap

 22:06:32  Sue Waters  Why not :)

 22:06:32  mmiller  something you can talk on top of pictures that one of youo guys posted, not bubble share tho

 22:06:40  jcox  att network works in maine, I think edge is sketchy though

 22:06:42  Rachel  Are they out here yet Chrissy? (iphone)

 22:06:44  sroseman  iphones in Canada?

 22:06:49  Sue Waters  But why would we 2.5 G is too expensive here

 22:06:53  darrendraper  I don't know, maybe some American conspiracy. ;)

 22:07:07  jcox  We're denying you portable myspace

 22:07:09  Durff  those Americans

 22:07:10  Sue Waters  definitely I am sure Graham will agree

 22:07:14  Durff  oh i am one

 22:07:15  jcox  Keeping you down (under)

 22:07:15  Rachel  !!

 22:07:24  darrendraper  Is Graham still here?

 22:07:24  Sue Waters  Aussies are just as bad Graham

 22:08:05  Rachel  very true

 22:09:05  Vicki Davis  Oh, Darren -- we renamed it WOW2 -- everyone is invited.

 22:09:16  Vicki Davis  Look, lots of gents in the chat.
