 19:46:09  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: it does exactly what you want it to do
 19:46:14  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: in the easiest way possible
 19:46:15  mariak -> -EdTechTalk: @sendkathy - I so agree with you
 19:46:16  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: but they are very good
 19:46:36  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: Arthus, what was the book thingy link you had in there earlier?
 19:46:48  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: freshbooks.com
 19:46:51  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: thx
 19:47:00  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: as opposed to inauthentic blogging, of course
 19:47:03  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: (it's not actually about books :P)
 19:47:15  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: inauthentic blogging = fake Steve Jobs
 19:47:17  Cathy E -> -EdTechTalk: http://drupal.dare.k12.nc.us/
 19:47:19  dougsymington -> -EdTechTalk: @Durff lol
 19:47:20  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: :)
 19:47:27  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: fake jobs!
 19:47:34  Diane Brown -> -EdTechTalk: lol
 19:47:41  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: so what is a fake gates?
 19:47:54  dougsymington -> -EdTechTalk: can the virtual "Just for Laughs"  be far behind?
 19:47:56  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: fakesteve.blogspot.com
 19:48:07  Cathy E -> -EdTechTalk: http://www.ning.com/
 19:48:12  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: a laugh-in reprisal
 19:48:26  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: fakesteve is outrageous in a good way
 19:48:57  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: Ning = social networking = :)
 19:49:03  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: fake gates, that would be the filter at our school :)
 19:49:12  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: (LOL)
 19:49:15  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: (lol)
 19:49:18  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: lol
 19:49:39  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: yes - they don't value my comments - they value everyone else's comments
 19:49:55  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: who doesn't value you you Durff?
 19:49:55  dgoodman_1958 -> -EdTechTalk: @Cathy E I am so mad at myself for missing this tonight
 19:50:10  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: you hire me to roll one for you :)
 19:50:16  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: the learners
 19:50:16  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: build*
 19:50:32  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: ahhhh, they are middle schoolers, givem a break!
 19:50:34  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: they value comments from other people
 19:50:38  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: and they should
 19:51:00  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: all of them PreK thru 12
 19:51:03  dougsymington -> -EdTechTalk: @Durff they'll thank you one day, and I'm sure they are listening, they just can't let on....
 19:51:05  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: I set up a ning to get my teachers blogging
 19:51:06  cindy p -> -EdTechTalk: what about imbee?  I've never used it
 19:51:13  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: Well, that is the goal anyway
 19:51:14  dgoodman_1958 -> -EdTechTalk: good idea Cathy E
 19:51:26  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: they are, they tell me when they are alone
 19:51:39  Diane Brown -> -EdTechTalk: We've been using drupal
 19:51:44  jeffmason -> -EdTechTalk: wordpress on the school server?
 19:52:07  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: Moodle = overkil
 19:52:11  dgoodman_1958 -> -EdTechTalk: We have a principal at our 3-5 school who is using a wiki to discuss a book she gave her staff-gotten from an idea your school is doing
 19:52:11  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: overkill*
 19:52:29  dgoodman_1958 -> -EdTechTalk: a good way to get teachers introduced to the tools
 19:52:36  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: The ning is much friendlier than moodle or drupal
 19:52:43  dougsymington -> -EdTechTalk: brb
 19:53:04  dgoodman_1958 -> -EdTechTalk: Hi criss
 19:53:06  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: Honestly people like to 'move in' they like to decorate and personalize
 19:53:07  mariak -> -EdTechTalk: Is setting up drupal hard?
 19:53:15  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: Harder than ning
 19:53:16  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: also, I think it might be worth sending Ning an email
 19:53:24  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: see if you can work out something
 19:53:39  dougsymington -> -EdTechTalk: back
 19:53:41  Diane Brown -> -EdTechTalk: The folks are great at drupal for helping out and all kinds of docs on the net
 19:53:45  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: in ning though anyone can join any ning group
 19:53:52  Diane Brown -> -EdTechTalk: Did he say sloodle?
 19:53:54  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: what are some safer avatar making sites
 19:54:00  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: that's sounds dangerous in a school
 19:54:00  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: yes he did
 19:54:09  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: habo?
 19:54:13  jeffmason -> -EdTechTalk: you can upload an avatar to your profile in moodle
 19:54:23  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: @kathy Portrait Illustrator
 19:54:35  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: @jeff yes
 19:54:42  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: OK will try
 19:54:56  cindy p -> -EdTechTalk: anyone tried www.gogofrog.com - creates second life style rooms - 3-D spaces with chats and avatars
 19:55:06  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: no
 19:55:08  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: cool
 19:55:24  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: @cindy thank you
 19:55:35  cindy p -> -EdTechTalk: has a blogging and forum feature, but haven't been able to get it to work yet
 19:55:50  cindy p -> -EdTechTalk: it was easy to upload pictures and text
 19:55:58  dgoodman_1958 -> -EdTechTalk: cindy showed me gogofrog today-looks really cool
 19:56:00  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: go frog looks very promising
 19:56:03  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: Meebo
 19:56:13  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: use Meebo for IM
 19:56:32  dgoodman_1958 -> -EdTechTalk: what was that site you just mentioned cathy
 19:56:32  Art Gelwicks -> -EdTechTalk: Meebo raises the specter of instant messaging for many schools.
 19:56:47  Diane Brown -> -EdTechTalk: chatmaker.net was it.
 19:56:51  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: edusim
 19:56:53  dgoodman_1958 -> -EdTechTalk: thkx
 19:56:55  Diane Brown -> -EdTechTalk: It's great for creating your own chatroom
 19:57:27  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: can others enter chatmaker rooms?
 19:57:31  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: I hope chat maker isn't blocked, looks ideal
 19:57:34  cindy p -> -EdTechTalk: Edusim didn't like my tablet
 19:57:36  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: is it safe?
 19:57:44  Diane Brown -> -EdTechTalk: yes.  You just send them the link thats created
 19:57:47  jeffmason -> -EdTechTalk: If you have wireless computers in your room, set up server on an oS X, add  MySql and wordpress.
 19:58:03  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: edusim is kind of light at this point in terms of content and i haven't had time to make any
 19:58:13  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: Also the controls are a bit rugged
 19:58:18  jeffmason -> -EdTechTalk: mildly techie solution but if might work
 19:58:32  jeffmason -> -EdTechTalk: it
 19:58:49  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: Even my college age son who is a video game afficionado thinks, hey, where's the action?
 19:59:04  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: is edusim a download?
 19:59:08  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: I know it's only in Alpha so hopefully they are collecting suggestions
 19:59:13  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: No flying either
 19:59:19  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: yes
 19:59:24  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: pooh
 19:59:25  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: we do
 19:59:27  Diane Brown -> -EdTechTalk: Boo!  Love to fly
 19:59:34  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: yes you have to be very fluid
 19:59:40  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: if not its too sluggish
 19:59:51  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: they also want to be able to compete with one another
 19:59:51  dougsymington -> -EdTechTalk: no flying, what's the point then?
 19:59:56  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: anyone put edusim on a flash drive yet?
 20:00:02  dougsymington -> -EdTechTalk: just kidding :)
 20:00:08  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: HAHA
 20:00:23  cindy p -> -EdTechTalk: my boys do that
 20:00:29  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: url for pictochat?
 20:00:41  cindy p -> -EdTechTalk: it's part of nintendo ds software
 20:01:20  dougsymington -> -EdTechTalk: Art, there you go again
 20:01:25  cindy p -> -EdTechTalk: try gogofrog.com
 20:01:26  dougsymington -> -EdTechTalk: font of knowledge over there
 20:01:56  Linda J -> -EdTechTalk: community unit
 20:02:22  Linda J -> -EdTechTalk: guess we are kin
 20:02:25  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: Elem educators would use the space on the whiteboard
 20:02:29  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: read James Paul Gee
 20:02:32  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: to allow children to explore
 20:02:37  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: then you will know Art
 20:02:37  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: engage
 20:02:43  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: and take things apart
 20:02:46  cindy p -> -EdTechTalk: museum style piece
 20:02:58  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: ecosystems
 20:03:00  dougsymington -> -EdTechTalk: mathematics principles too--being able to walk in and around shapes and such
 20:03:05  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: see Paris :)
 20:03:07  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: finding things like in I SPY but three D
 20:03:16  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: Yes
 20:03:55  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: mmm-the virtual world as the textbook
 20:04:12  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: what if you have a computer in the virtual world?
 20:04:17  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: and then play SL in that..
 20:04:20  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: yeah what if?
 20:04:26  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: wow
 20:04:27  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: and then get on the computer in there
 20:04:27  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: could you?
 20:04:29  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: etc.
 20:04:38  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: very deeeep
 20:04:51  mariak -> -EdTechTalk: @arthus - that sounds like an infinity concept
 20:04:57  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: it is
 20:05:09  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: i'm calling a cab
 20:05:09  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: actually, not it's not
 20:05:14  dougsymington -> -EdTechTalk: one company, may be NetG is already doing computer labs in SL
 20:05:19  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: Ladies and gents, must go, see you all back here at 9!  Fun times, thx.  What learning isn't distracting?
 20:05:24  dgoodman_1958 -> -EdTechTalk: yes cathy i agree
 20:05:25  cindy p -> -EdTechTalk: AMEN Cathy!
 20:05:26  sendkathy -> -EdTechTalk: bye, cya later
 20:05:27  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: because eventually your SL character would run out of lenonsa
 20:05:29  mariak -> -EdTechTalk: I used to love to set up mirrors so i could search for infinity
 20:05:36  dougsymington -> -EdTechTalk: bye Kathy
 20:05:37  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: kathy! loved seeing you!!
 20:05:53  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: I saw infinity the other day
 20:05:58  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: maria did you ever find it?
 20:06:01  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: then I looked further
 20:06:08  dgoodman_1958 -> -EdTechTalk: and their audience would be the world
 20:06:11  Linda J -> -EdTechTalk: Thank you everyone!  Great Show!!!!
 20:06:14  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: where arthus? at educon?
 20:06:16  mariak -> -EdTechTalk: I'm getting closer to infinity - way closer than when I was younger!
 20:06:39  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: i'm 12
 20:06:41  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: nope, in binary
 20:06:50  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: I'm 3.14
 20:07:14  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: ok that's too deep for me - taking a cab outta here
 20:07:17  mariak -> -EdTechTalk: here's a primary grade level wiki I started http://100thday.wetpaint.com/  maybe some classrooms would want to participate
 20:07:45  dougsymington -> -EdTechTalk: @Durff I'm guessing that cab budget is a big one!
 20:07:54  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: our 100th day was Monday
 20:08:05  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: mine would be Spartan
 20:08:09  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: @Doug maria is paying
 20:08:12  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: a single white desk
 20:08:16  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: a stool
 20:08:17  dougsymington -> -EdTechTalk: excellent
 20:08:20  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: and an iMac
 20:08:23  mariak -> -EdTechTalk: @durff - no problem - this is more about the concept of counting to 100
 20:08:40  mariak -> -EdTechTalk: @durff - I',m walking
 20:08:42  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: i'll share it maria
 20:09:25  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: sneak peak: I might be starting my own regular show soon
 20:09:37  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: good
 20:09:39  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: also, I'm going to be webcasting on Super Tuesday
 20:09:45  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: 'bout time
 20:09:54  dougsymington -> -EdTechTalk: indeed
 20:10:11  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: auf Deutsch-doch
 20:10:21  dgoodman_1958 -> -EdTechTalk: more formative assessments - project based learning - testing now is on fragmented learning
 20:10:44  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: define "actual experience"
 20:10:48  Diane Brown -> -EdTechTalk: recall learning...no application of critical thinking skills
 20:11:02  dgoodman_1958 -> -EdTechTalk: too much time on this
 20:11:13  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: is an experience in SL "actual"
 20:11:15  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: i don't think it passes the test arthus
 20:11:33  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: darn
 20:11:43  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: actual experience is really contrived
 20:11:50  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: it has to be
 20:11:58  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: school is contrived
 20:12:26  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: SL is not contrived enough
 20:12:52  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: oh my! it is 8:12!! I gotta go
 20:13:07  mariak -> -EdTechTalk: bye lisa - call a cab!
 20:13:31  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: i'll not log out - just go fill the coffee
 20:13:41  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: we lost him
 20:13:43  cindy p -> -EdTechTalk: losing sound...
 20:13:46  dgoodman_1958 -> -EdTechTalk: we need to involve parents more in the classroom so they see how much learning goes on
 20:13:56  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: Durff, what's up for WOW tonight?
 20:14:41  lthompson -> -EdTechTalk: Test drives everything
 20:14:45  mariak -> -EdTechTalk: Parents think the scores are measuring what their children are learning and how well the school is doing!
 20:14:46  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: the scary thing: when it gets down to actual school work, I end up being like just every student
 20:15:02  arthus -> -EdTechTalk: (cramming for the test, non-understanding based testing)
 20:15:20  mariak -> -EdTechTalk: Teacher need to find their voice and stand up for what is right for children
 20:15:34  dgoodman_1958 -> -EdTechTalk: yes we do maria
 20:15:45  mariak -> -EdTechTalk: a march on washington is what we need!
 20:15:48  cindy p -> -EdTechTalk: but we need to be singing the same song!
 20:15:54  lthompson -> -EdTechTalk: Thanks this was great
 20:15:57  Diane b -> -EdTechTalk: sounds great
 20:16:08  cindy p -> -EdTechTalk: great show tonight Cathy!
 20:16:10  dgoodman_1958 -> -EdTechTalk: will see you on Thursday evening
 20:16:12  mariak -> -EdTechTalk: think of what that would do -if all the teachers across the country organized and marched
 20:16:20  mariak -> -EdTechTalk: to wahington
 20:16:23  sheila -> -EdTechTalk: I have a big list of things to check out! Thank you!
 20:16:24  dgoodman_1958 -> -EdTechTalk: sorry I missed first half but will tune in Thursday evening

 20:20:49  Diane b -> -EdTechTalk: I love NCWise
 20:21:03  cindy p -> -EdTechTalk: It will actually move smoother than you might expect
