 21:31:04  wwoodgate -> -EdTechTalk: good evening
 21:31:23  tiffanyd -> -EdTechTalk: trying to tie them into a literature unit so they'll probably be hybrid projects--somewhat personal, somewhat reader response.  still in the planning stages...
 21:31:24  rwlev -> -EdTechTalk: Hey gail...I hope your daughter is feeling better...

 21:36:40  Sarah S -> -EdTechTalk: All of our kids have email through first class in our system
 21:37:15  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: sarah it seems like that is all of Maine?
 21:37:36  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: distance program or for classes in person too?
 21:37:37  duganls -> -EdTechTalk: and consult k12 on setting up Moodle/Angel/Blackboard
 21:37:46  Sarah S -> -EdTechTalk: I think it's most of the state - with the 7-8 MLTI laptop program it seemed like the way to go
 21:37:52  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: hi tmoregan welcome back!
 21:37:53  Sarah S -> -EdTechTalk: I think it just continued up through HS
 21:38:02  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: yes
 21:38:15  duganls -> -EdTechTalk: Google Docs rules! Just set up 76 courses to use it!
 21:38:50  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: duganis I have a question for you... wanting some students to be able to register for something online and then dump the results into an excel - any thoughts?
 21:39:04  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: what do you mean set up courses to use it?
 21:39:33  duganls -> -EdTechTalk: Using Angel at the college and we have problems with Word 2007..
 21:39:43  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: what is Angel?
 21:39:59  duganls -> -EdTechTalk: Angel learning management system
 21:40:04  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: ahh
 21:40:09  duganls -> -EdTechTalk: Like Blackboard, but better
 21:40:19  duganls -> -EdTechTalk: Google has the new education system
 21:40:23  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: any suggestions for registering online and dumping it into excel?
 21:40:31  duganls -> -EdTechTalk: that integrates docs and calendar
 21:40:42  duganls -> -EdTechTalk: registering how online?
 21:40:55  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: students being able to choose electives...
 21:41:05  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: so not official and no money
 21:41:15  duganls -> -EdTechTalk: web form?
 21:41:44  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: yes but any free sites with that? not in a place to start writing scripts and forms right now
 21:41:46  duganls -> -EdTechTalk: using a MySQL system
 21:41:59  duganls -> -EdTechTalk: oic
 21:42:02  duganls -> -EdTechTalk: hmmmm
 21:42:12  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: doesn't seem that hard does it?
 21:42:34  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: ok enough tech talk... have lost a lot of you!
 21:42:54  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: did everyone see the document - the wiki?
 21:43:37  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: wouldn't it be nice if we could always look at anyone's 15 week plan and not always start over alone?
 21:44:32  duganls -> -EdTechTalk: google.com/educators
 21:44:39  wwoodgate -> -EdTechTalk: it is a great idea.  I like the concept of a collaborative national curriculum.
 21:45:17  duganls -> -EdTechTalk: share plans at merlot.org
 21:46:15  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: how interesting - who is merlot?
 21:46:38  duganls -> -EdTechTalk: lesson plan and learning object repository
 21:46:53  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: looks interesting
 21:46:59  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: have you seen tumblr?
 21:47:23  duganls -> -EdTechTalk: no
 21:49:14  duganls -> -EdTechTalk: looks very nice...
 21:49:21  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: very very simple
 21:49:47  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: but this following feature does allow you to just follow the class and then in youth voices talk to everyone
 21:51:00  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: welcome back lucy!
 21:51:06  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: have you seen tumblr?
 21:51:18  LucyGray -> -EdTechTalk: Hi...
 21:51:30  LucyGray -> -EdTechTalk: Yes, Tumblr is very nice
 21:51:42  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: lucy how would you compare it to blogger?
 21:51:48  gail desler -> -EdTechTalk: @rwlevin - call you tomorrow re tumblr
 21:51:53  LucyGray -> -EdTechTalk: Much better design-wise
 21:51:57  chris sloan -> -EdTechTalk: sloan.tumblr.com
 21:52:06  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: and down side?
 21:52:16  LucyGray -> -EdTechTalk: I don't know if I'd use it for a class blog
 21:52:23  LucyGray -> -EdTechTalk: It's not linear enough
 21:52:28  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: lucy - any thoughts about how to go directly from docs to tumblr?
 21:52:33  LucyGray -> -EdTechTalk: for random personal stuff... I think it's fine
 21:53:10  LucyGray -> -EdTechTalk: Hmmm
 21:53:18  LucyGray -> -EdTechTalk: What exactly are you thinking about?
 21:53:41  LucyGray -> -EdTechTalk: Linking in a Google doc to Tumblr?
 21:53:47  LucyGray -> -EdTechTalk: I'm trying to get my audio working again
 21:53:49  LucyGray -> -EdTechTalk: hang on
 21:54:07  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: publishing from docs to tumblr
 21:54:15  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: what do you mean about linear?
 21:54:21  wwoodgate -> -EdTechTalk: Susan - thanx for having your students add to the Alaska - NY wiki.  I just saw their comments yesterday and I'll have more Alaska comments soon.
 21:54:39  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: we just could do a little woody and then the semester ended
 21:55:20  wwoodgate -> -EdTechTalk: It looked like a great start.  do you want to continue it this semester?
 21:56:25  LucyGray -> -Webhead Room: Okay, sorry... I lost my DSL and I'm working off my broadband card. I keep bumping it and disconnecting.
 21:56:34  LucyGray -> -Webhead Room: I think Blogger is more compartmentalized
 21:56:53  Kim -> -EdTechTalk: Thanks for the discussion. Will investigate tumblr!!
 21:56:54  LucyGray -> -Webhead Room: It seems like you can customize it a bit more... via widgets
 21:57:04  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: let us know what you think!
 21:57:10  LucyGray -> -Webhead Room: but I haven't tried that with Tumblr yet
 21:57:48  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: woody - I won't have any more 9th graders this spring except for art but would like to figure it out
 21:58:07  gail desler -> -EdTechTalk: @rwlev Call you tomorrow re tumblr
 21:58:09  wwoodgate -> -EdTechTalk: OK.  Please let me know.  
 21:58:35  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: where do you want to take it? I guess it seemed onhold because you were all out hunting?
 21:58:36  rwlev -> -EdTechTalk: @gail..yes....I've been checking it out
 21:58:55  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: hi phawkenson welcome
 21:59:10  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: lucy are you having trouble with the chat room?
 21:59:18  LucyGray -> -EdTechTalk: It's not the chat
 21:59:24  LucyGray -> -EdTechTalk: It's me :)
 21:59:27  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: sound?
 21:59:30  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: yikes
 21:59:42  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: could you say more about what you meant about linear?
 21:59:46  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk:  in bloger?
 21:59:50  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: blogger
 22:00:10  wwoodgate -> -EdTechTalk: I was hoping to introduce it to some of my iMovie students. The couple that saw what your students added thought it was cool to learn more about your students.
 22:00:19  LucyGray -> -EdTechTalk: I think i started to in another chat room :)
 22:00:21  LucyGray -> -EdTechTalk: Okay
 22:00:26  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: ahh
 22:00:31  LucyGray -> -EdTechTalk: I think Blogger is more customizable with widgets etc.
 22:00:40  LucyGray -> -EdTechTalk: I could be wrong on this with Tumblr
 22:00:51  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: what widget would you want that tumblr might not have?
 22:00:52  LucyGray -> -EdTechTalk: I think Blogger is more compartmentalized
 22:01:03  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: for good or not?
 22:01:06  LucyGray -> -EdTechTalk: and easier the follow in terms of threaded conversations
 22:01:12  LucyGray -> -EdTechTalk: I see Tumblr as a personal tool
 22:01:26  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: humm yes tumblr doesn't take / have comments
 22:01:39  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: we were thinking that students would respond by reblogging
 22:01:41  gail desler -> -EdTechTalk: @Lucy that's my first impression too
 22:01:47  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: which is somewhat realistic anyway
 22:01:50  LucyGray -> -EdTechTalk: but again... this is my initial impression and I think personal preferences are important
 22:01:54  LucyGray -> -EdTechTalk: and may differ
 22:02:00  wwoodgate -> -EdTechTalk: same here.  that's the reality
 22:02:08  LucyGray -> -EdTechTalk: I'm not crazy about Blogger generally
