Women of Web Show #38, We are Back!

The Back to School show.We asked our guests and ourselves to consider the following.

What are your dreams and visions for this school year? 07-08.
Question for all participants.
Many of us have had the past 8-12 weeks off from school. During this time what new things have surfaced that you are beginning to put into your plan for your schools in the upcoming school year?
What is the most exciting thing you are going to introduce?
What is your goal, vision for the year? By next June 2008, my community, my staff, my students will be on board and able to do........

We were lucky to start off with Kristin Hokanson
Keystone Technology Integrator / Discovery Educator
Classrooms for the Future Coach, Upper Merion Area School District

21:16:36 Kristin Hokanson twitter= khokanson

21:16:49 Karen Janowski twitter - karenjan

21:17:01 lori.sheldon twitter=skutchmom

21:17:02 jgates **I STILL don't 'get' Twitter** :-(

21:17:15 JenWagner jgates -- just try it with the names given tonight

21:17:17 Cathy N (SC) i luv twitter

21:17:19 Diane H. Great idea for a Science Fair!

21:17:21 loria twitter - fsinfo

21:17:21 JenWagner I think you will get it

21:17:28 JenWagner takes a bit of time though

21:17:46 JenWagner or -- suddenly it HITS you and you get it

21:17:52 jgates I've been on before and I've .. tweeted :-) - but I just didn't like being that connected

21:17:53 sharonp Twitter, like any social netowrking service, depends on the QUALITY of your network -

21:17:55 JenWagner that is how it impacted me

21:17:56 Jason Hando twitter is awesome - one way I find out about intrstg events and tech

21:18:03 Cathy N (SC) i agree u must lurl for a bit

21:18:06 CheriT jgates - it's like continual connection and ongoing professional development

21:18:22 jgarton When my hardware guys find out my twitter there will be no end to the teasing

21:18:26 JenWagner i didn't really get it until it said "Ryan Bretag is chatting with Jen Wagner in The Bloggers Cafe" and Mark Wagner came running up

21:18:26 sharonp if you have awesome peeps on your network (and please include us) - then you will find some treasures

21:18:29 Cathy N (SC) i luv the preview to blog posts a lot--tho some do not hink u should post blog urls

21:18:33 LisaParisi when i first started this summer, i hated twitter

21:18:36 JenWagner and I realized -- how powerful it is

21:18:41 LisaParisi didn't get it thought it was silly

21:18:47 charbeck one of the best ways to get people to read your blog posts is to twitter about it

21:18:48 LisaParisi then i started following some of you

21:18:51 LisaParisi now i get it

21:18:51 JenWagner lol -- sometimes it still is

21:18:54 joycevalenza twitter gives me my best leads

21:18:55 LisaParisi so powerful

21:18:59 LisaParisi get great blogs

21:19:01 LisaParisi sites

21:19:02 CheriT Hi Joyce!

21:19:03 LisaParisi ideas

21:19:03 sharonp I agree Cathy - this is how I am finding some great blog posts

21:19:04 jgarton I thought it was silly too, that's why I've waited so long to try it

21:19:06 Karen Janowski powerful but so distracting!!!

21:19:06 JenWagner twitter makes me laugh

21:19:09 Cathy N (SC) and u can get quick answers there

21:19:10 JenWagner and makes me cry

21:19:26 JenWagner like tonight -- we are waiting to hear if Mark Wagner is going to have a girl or boy

21:19:29 jgates maybe I shuld give it a second chance

21:19:31 JenWagner I think that that is cool

21:19:37 Karen Janowski scoble follows over 5,000 people, how does he do it?

21:19:38 sharonp Chris Lehmann had me in stitches with his twittering of conference sesions for principals....

21:19:47 Diane H. There's a fear though that some teachers feel they need to reach "mastery" level before they try new technologies. Need to balance starting slow with jumping in and getting your feet wet.

21:19:49 LisaParisi 5000 people is a bit crazy

21:19:52 JenWagner JibJab last week was HYSTERICAL

21:19:56 Pam Shoemaker twitter=shoemap

21:19:58 sharonp is Mark Wagner due any minute?

21:19:58 Cathy N (SC) I do watch to see how many friends--too many makes me skeptical

21:20:01 JenWagner the dancing heads had me smiling

21:20:06 JenWagner The ultrasound for baby

21:20:07 CheriT that was hilarious - Chris shared the positives and negatives of his pd

21:20:09 joycevalenza yes, jen!

21:20:16 sharonp teh WR and DJ jibjab??

21:20:21 jgarton dancing head, Will? I saw that one

21:20:29 JenWagner yep -- I howled

21:20:49 jgarton me too, my daughter came running in the room to see what had me lol

21:20:55 Diane H. Things change but you can do so many innovative things with even "old" tools.

21:20:56 ColleenK twitter = mathplayground

21:21:11 sharonp that jibjab was almost too much - almost sacriligious! I would *never* do that to my friends.... I think.... well, maybe..

21:21:14 joycevalenza we have to get used to messy learning

21:21:16 Cathy N (SC) twitter=playground in gnral

21:21:17 Karen Janowski my kids watched me in twitter - they thought it was so lame - facebook talk for adults

21:21:17 Diane H. Sometimes??? Mess-up is a given!

21:21:30 Kristin Hokanson markwagner ultrasound his eve

21:21:34 JenWagner LOL -- Sharon so I am safe??

21:21:38 Cathy N (SC) blogs blocked at school but NOT twitter

21:21:43 Diane H. We need to give up our expert role.

21:21:43 Cathy N (SC) go figure

21:21:44 JenWagner do we know the baby's sex yet??

21:21:57 mrichme not yet

21:21:59 Cathy N (SC) i did not see it posted yet

21:22:00 LisaParisi my students tend to learn faster than me

21:22:04 Cathy N (SC) mark oh mark where are u?

21:22:07 LisaParisi then they show me how to do things

21:22:18 Karen Janowski yes, lisa

21:22:29 joycevalenza i just hope we can integrate traditional skills into new landscapes

21:22:33 Karen Janowski i ask my son to show me when he learns something cool (he's 17)

21:22:35 LisaParisi and they love telling me how dumb i am :)

21:22:50 Karen Janowski yes, joyce

21:22:57 LisaParisi my daughter's into showing me all the widgets for blogsites

21:23:11 joycevalenza I love widgets

21:23:16 Karen Janowski joyce - good to balance

21:23:17 ColleenK Lisa, I've been doing the same

21:23:21 joycevalenza but I have too many

21:23:32 ColleenK I'm widget happy

21:23:41 LisaParisi me too colleen

21:23:50 sharonp hey Karen and Lisa - I rely on my kids too to keep me in the loop with Internet goodies

21:23:52 Karen Janowski i'm statistics happy on my blog

21:23:57 LisaParisi but my daughter is 100x worse

21:24:17 LisaParisi when we started our blogsite in spring

21:24:22 LisaParisi we showed kids basics

21:24:32 ColleenK I avoid statistics.....not that popular yet :)

21:24:32 jgates wow!!

21:24:34 LisaParisi they showed us widgets and fancy writing and icons

21:24:36 Cathy N (SC) SCAD!

21:24:36 CheriT very cool

21:24:43 Karen Janowski love to see where people come from

21:24:44 LisaParisi then they showed each other

21:24:53 sharonp CollenK, I am with you - there are some things I don't want to know

21:24:55 Karen Janowski Vicki,

21:24:58 LisaParisi they blogged about it

21:24:59 Cathy N (SC) my son's best friend is there--he is at DePAul

21:25:14 Cathy N (SC) but they are as close as ever due to web 2.0

21:25:16 loria DePaul in chicago?

21:25:16 Karen Janowski i worry that we are overlooking kids with special needs when we talk about 2.0

21:25:19 LisaParisi but colleen, i love clustrmap

21:25:19 ColleenK I just imagine a cluster map with 3 red dots :)

21:25:24 LisaParisi love watching it grow

21:25:27 LisaParisi gets exciting

21:25:29 Karen Janowski ]lol colleen

21:25:43 jgates one dot for each relative?

21:25:44 LisaParisi and twitter is helping my clustrmap grow

21:25:48 Karen Janowski but clustr map is fun - so is google analytics

21:25:51 joycevalenza So what is the killer app for newbie teachers in 2007/2008?

21:25:53 ColleenK That's about it...

21:26:15 Karen Janowski good question Joyce - what's your take?

21:40:48 Karen Janowski ? - when you twit, do you like people to respond?

21:40:51 LisaParisi i read hers everytime she posts a new one

21:40:59 charbeck gnight all see you in a week

21:40:59 alicebarr I am also following jgarton

21:41:05 LisaParisi she says i invade her privacy

21:41:10 JenWagner I cant figure out how I have 74 following and only 71 followers

21:41:14 LisaParisi i tell her online NOTHING is private

21:41:15 joycevalenza :-) new ways to parent. also check her flickr regularly

21:41:16 Karen Janowski Lisa, how old is she

21:41:22 JenWagner I don't understand following followers

21:41:25 jgates i have to go, but I will listen to the archive to hear the end of this.

21:41:26 ColleenK depends on what I've said

21:41:28 LisaParisi almost 12

21:41:29 sharonp okay - anyone using twitterfox and/or twitbin?? Any preference between the ttwo??

21:41:39 coolcatteacher I use twitku.

21:41:44 Karen Janowski tough age!

21:41:45 loria i think there are some groups like DEN that don't follow

21:41:46 langwitches I have a mySpace and a Facebook account and am a "friend" of my daughters too

21:41:50 joycevalenza yeah, lots of PA folks!

21:41:50 LisaParisi i haven't figured out anything but using the twitter site

21:41:53 JenWagner I didn't like either Sharon

21:41:55 jgarton Ive gried twitbin. Dont like having to give up the space on my browser for the sidebar

21:41:56 Karen Janowski what's the difference between all those twit options?

21:42:19 joycevalenza don't give up

21:42:20 JenWagner I like choose TWITTER when I want too -- having it all the time was TOO much for me

21:42:24 loria use twitterific

21:42:25 Cathy N (SC) blocks-story of my last three school days

21:42:28 loria and twitterbox in SL

21:42:30 sharonp I like twitbin (except it seems to be flaky) cuz I don't have to navigate away from my current page to keep up

21:42:34 coolcatteacher twitku does twitter and jaiku

21:42:34 JenWagner and YES, Janetta -- I agree

21:42:39 alicebarr I use twitterific

21:42:42 joycevalenza we need to defend rather than accept

21:42:45 jgarton twitterific is only mac, right?

21:42:46 JenWagner I am wearing my PB wiki t-shirt right now

21:43:30 coolcatteacher tee hee

21:43:40 MGuhlin.net Can't you setup a DekiWiki or PMWiki solution on a server in your district?

21:43:41 coolcatteacher edublogs blocked?

21:43:43 joycevalenza We really need to argue this

21:43:46 lori.sheldon I have begged and gotten things unblocked successfully

21:43:49 jgarton I need to find the PC equivilant for twitterific

21:43:56 lori.sheldon depends on each district

21:44:00 joycevalenza right!

21:44:05 JenWagner My teachers get sites unblocked when the fill out the form -- and admin approves

21:44:11 JenWagner 45 sites were unblocked this week

21:44:16 LisaParisi my school gives us the unblock code

21:44:24 LisaParisi we can unblock for periods of time

21:44:26 joycevalenza did you see the new national school board report on 2.0?

21:44:34 LisaParisi yes,

21:44:35 JenWagner yes, we use QUOTAS a lot

21:44:37 Cathy N (SC) im still learning the existing policies cuz im new there

21:44:40 vincej where is the report Joyce

21:44:48 cheryloakes WOW2 iz Back any questions from this group

21:50:14 jgarton :{

21:50:15 Karen Janowski Cathy, why it's safer than IE

21:50:22 Cathy N (SC) yes

21:50:27 Cathy N (SC) i don't know

21:50:28 JenWagner our school grading program won't run on FF

21:50:43 Cathy N (SC) they are very funny with their blocks and supposedly watch the downloads too

21:50:51 ColleenK That's a great video. I'm always passing around the link.

21:50:52 Cathy N (SC) maybe that's it

21:50:56 Karen Janowski Yes, lisa - some people still don't explore

21:50:56 coolcatteacher I love firefox.

21:51:01 sharonp I had to sneak FF onto my laptop at school last year - they completely disabled the ability to use it

21:51:02 Cathy N (SC) i do too

21:51:39 Cathy N (SC) my old district didn't block a lot

21:51:42 Cathy N (SC) this one does tho

21:52:07 Karen Janowski just got bumped!

21:52:17 Karen Janowski what happened to the audio?

21:52:45 LisaParisi i can hear you

21:55:42 cheryloakes WOW2 iz Back thanks for a great show to all in the chat!

21:55:44 SusanEttenheim that's great - what a luxury but where does the money come from to support that!

21:55:58 JenWagner Cathy -- I agree

21:56:05 sharonp I can tell you another way - what I did was to rename the FF exe name and put it on my desktop - so I had FirFox or Fiefox.... hee hee - the students renamed all the FF exe files to "Internet Explorer" on the school library computers - I laughed my head off

21:56:06 JenWagner give up the small battle -- you will win the WAR

21:56:07 Karen Janowski susan - does your town have an education foundation?
