 21:13:49  Lee Baber -> -EdTechTalk: but wondered,,,, as a live participant at the conference, what do you think is the main thing I missed by only being virtually
 21:13:52  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: lee that's great - I wanted to but never was able to get to the computer
 21:13:57  mrmayo -> -EdTechTalk: THX Durff- I wish I would have met you in person at SLA

 21:14:30  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: ;)
 21:14:32  Lee Baber -> -EdTechTalk: I really enjoyed Educon2
 21:14:32  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: can i live that long?
 21:14:44  MrChase -> -EdTechTalk: I think the thing you miss is the sense of connection.
 21:14:52  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: has anyone here ever been to Kenya?
 21:15:00  MrChase -> -EdTechTalk: I feel like it's otherwise a bit of a nerdy reality TV show.
 21:15:02  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: well derrall, in that case....make it 1875
 21:15:20  derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: oh boy i'm getting confused
 21:15:20  Lee Baber -> -EdTechTalk: i most enjoyed the chat participationa nd that Will for example was live blogging during the panel on sunday morning...
 21:15:24  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: remember snow on the tv?
 21:15:25  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: hi mcarls welcome
 21:15:30  judi epcke -> -EdTechTalk: We had plans to go last summer, but cancelled
 21:16:06  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: because of the situation judi?
 21:16:08  derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: @lee i've missed all the live blogging what makes it appealing?
 21:16:23  judi epcke -> -EdTechTalk: was going to go with a church group to work in the Kibera slums this summer, but they aren't allowed to go
 21:16:28  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: ahhh welcome ellen from california
 21:16:53  Lee Baber -> -EdTechTalk: @chase - I was much more "there" becasue I knew I could blog something to him ..the front lines so to speak..so could contribute immediately
 21:16:55  judi epcke -> -EdTechTalk: @susan yep, we were a little concerned about the political climate
 21:17:03  murcha -> -EdTechTalk: Okay cos I am from Australia
 21:17:11  MrChase -> -EdTechTalk: Definitely, I understand.
 21:18:16  judi epcke -> -EdTechTalk: @mrchase a nerdy reality show -- LOL I didn't think so as I was watching this weekend, but now that you mention it...
 21:18:40  Lee Baber -> -EdTechTalk: I have never been to Kenya.. in answer to you Ellen but I have certainly tried to watch all of the shows available on TV and have mostly been looking at the culture and arts
 21:19:04  Lee Baber -> -EdTechTalk: Which is wonderful
 21:19:09  Lee Baber -> -EdTechTalk: HI Kim

 21:31:51  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: jeff - SLA is one of a kind
 21:31:52  Ann-NJTechTeacher -> -EdTechTalk: Did they talk about the Go Ed button on Voicethread already?
 21:32:10  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: hi Peggy
 21:32:12  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: ann do you have a question about it?
 21:32:12  MrChase -> -EdTechTalk: I thinkn there are more of us than you think.
 21:32:13  murcha -> -EdTechTalk: what is the go ed button is that the ed-Vt
 21:32:32  jeffmason -> -EdTechTalk: @Durff this is an understatement
 21:32:34  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: there is only one chrislehman
 21:32:35  Lee Baber -> -EdTechTalk: @aliceb  No problem..not to worry. I had lots of terrain and security issues to handle anyway..they are all good now
 21:32:40  Ann-NJTechTeacher -> -EdTechTalk: Yes
 21:32:49  jeffmason -> -EdTechTalk: @Durff ditto
 21:33:20  MrChase -> -EdTechTalk: I think that's underselling U.S. schools.
 21:33:31  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Hi Durff :-)
 21:33:36  MrChase -> -EdTechTalk: We know from what we read online that great things are going on across the country.
 21:33:42  Ann-NJTechTeacher -> -EdTechTalk: Will they remove all non-ed Voicethreads from what those who contribut $10?  What are the benefits?
 21:33:49  Lee Baber -> -EdTechTalk: Yes, they are
 21:33:55  jeffmason -> -EdTechTalk: excuse the hyperbole
 21:33:59  MrChase -> -EdTechTalk: What needs to happen is a shared effort to tell our stories.
 21:34:02  murcha -> -EdTechTalk: @ann I want to know that too
 21:34:26  Ann-NJTechTeacher -> -EdTechTalk: That makes it well worth the $10 if they do.  It's the main reason I don't include the link page at the end of the VTs.
 21:34:37  jeffmason -> -EdTechTalk: I'm science not English I think it's hyperbole. but you are unique
 21:34:38  Lee Baber -> -EdTechTalk: New Media..must be our voice and really on some ways is already old hat. :)
 21:35:37  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: lol now that's a way to get software upgraded!
 21:35:41  jeffmason -> -EdTechTalk: I'm hoping my district will unblock the ed. version of voicethread
 21:35:46  MrChase -> -EdTechTalk: What part is hyperbole?
 21:35:54  mrmayo -> -EdTechTalk: How do you deal with having students realistically credit pictures in their VT's- The next go around we may just take all our own pics.
 21:35:55  Lee Baber -> -EdTechTalk: Yes, I know Barbara.. I have not heard her for some time
 21:36:37  Ann-NJTechTeacher -> -EdTechTalk: @SusanEttenheim I guess the question is "What are the specific benefits of Go Ed".
 21:36:38  jeffmason -> -EdTechTalk: "one of a kind"?
 21:36:42  mrmayo -> -EdTechTalk: Problematic having students simply grabbing photos online to create their VT's
 21:36:43  Lee Baber -> -EdTechTalk: Please let us know more about her part
 21:36:49  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: here you go ann

 21:40:49  murcha -> -EdTechTalk: @ban thanks
 21:40:59  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: The accountability provided by ed.voicethread should make a BIG difference!
 21:41:08  Lee Baber -> -EdTechTalk: Welcome chep2m
 21:41:10  alicebarr -> -EdTechTalk: @lee :)
 21:41:22  chep2m -> -EdTechTalk: Chep2m is me, Ellen...hi.
 21:41:23  ben -> -EdTechTalk: we think so
 21:41:55  jeffmason -> -EdTechTalk: any studies on school districts/tech admins getting sued for lapses in their filters?
 21:42:58  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @Steve-can you clarify the phone charges and how the account works?
 21:44:18  ben -> -EdTechTalk: 10$ for 60 mins
 21:44:29  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Can you search on ed.voicethread to VTs that contain videos?
 21:44:35  Steve -> -EdTechTalk: Hi Peggy, learning/trying to type and listen;) The phone commenting is unfortunately not free, we have to pay a phone company for the call
 21:44:40  ben -> -EdTechTalk: good question
 21:44:47  ben -> -EdTechTalk: let me think
 21:44:57  Steve -> -EdTechTalk: No, but it's on the list
 21:44:58  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: hi coachkevin welcome
 21:45:12  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: kevan
 21:45:18  ben -> -EdTechTalk: if the video was tagged with the word 'video'
 21:45:19  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: what do you coach?
 21:45:31  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Big grin :-) Thanks. I know videos are relatively new but they provide a lot of stimulation for responses. :-)
 21:45:37  coachkevan -> -EdTechTalk: basketball, or learning to do it anyway
 21:45:51  ben -> -EdTechTalk: love video!
 21:45:56  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: great welcome we're talking about Voice Thread - have you used it?
 21:45:57  Lee Baber -> -EdTechTalk: Hi CoachKevin
 21:45:59  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Tagging with video--great idea! Is that tip included somewhere on the site?
 21:46:19  coachkevan -> -EdTechTalk: a coworker just told me that you were discussing that
 21:46:22  ben -> -EdTechTalk: no. because I just thought of it!
 21:46:30  coachkevan -> -EdTechTalk: i have a unit coming up that might use it
 21:46:32  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: You're awesome!
 21:46:37  ben -> -EdTechTalk: funny
 21:46:44  Lee Baber -> -EdTechTalk: Oh.. was it Karen Ellis?
 21:46:52  coachkevan -> -EdTechTalk: Zac Chase
 21:46:56  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: what would you like to know about it kevan?
 21:46:58  Lee Baber -> -EdTechTalk: Mr. Chase
 21:47:04  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: have you tried it yet?
 21:47:07  ben -> -EdTechTalk: u guys are the one's that come up with all the ideas
 21:47:16  mrmayo -> -EdTechTalk: Saw that the last 2 weeks w/ students seeing their clustr maps get hits from other countries on their blogs
 21:47:34  coachkevan -> -EdTechTalk: dont even know what it is. My kids are doing a photo essay, and Chase thinks it would be good to use for narration
 21:48:02  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Can a voicethread be used in a mashup on a Google map?
 21:48:03  Ann-NJTechTeacher -> -EdTechTalk: The students were amazed when there were multiple countries looking at their wiki work with podcasts and VTs
 21:48:22  Ann-NJTechTeacher -> -EdTechTalk: Hi AllanahK
 21:48:33  ben -> -EdTechTalk: that's great
 21:48:33  murcha -> -EdTechTalk: @ann what is the url for your wiki and podcasts
 21:49:07  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: not ignoring - student on meebo
 21:49:21  ben -> -EdTechTalk: not yet Peggy
 21:49:25  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: field fire near her and she has a lot to say
 21:49:41  AllanahK -> -EdTechTalk: Hi there all- just got home from first work day in 2008
 21:49:50  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: hi allanah
 21:50:03  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Just thinking that would be a great bonus with VT :-)
 21:50:13  Ann-NJTechTeacher -> -EdTechTalk: http://saintmichaelcomputer.wikispaces.com - see copyright, fair use, plagiarism on left side menu
 21:50:37  murcha -> -EdTechTalk: The bell has just gone so lunch is finished and the students will be in class. See you and thanks
 21:50:46  Ann-NJTechTeacher -> -EdTechTalk: Bye murcha
 21:50:49  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: bye
 21:50:54  Lee Baber -> -EdTechTalk: http://scottsfloyd.edublogs.org/2008/01/24/kenya-escape-through-digital-...
 21:51:02  derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: bye Anne
 21:51:04  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: coach kevan - can you hear this?
 21:52:07  derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: @Ann just shared your VTs today to a group of beg. teachers
 21:52:44  jeffmason -> -EdTechTalk: listening away
 21:52:55  woscholar -> -EdTechTalk: bye durff
 21:53:19  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: That is such an important point! The content is critical or it just becomes another presentation tool without interaction.
 21:53:27  coachkevan -> -EdTechTalk: hear what? Im Sorry
 21:53:36  Ann-NJTechTeacher -> -EdTechTalk: @derrallg wow, thanks. Did you see what the math students did?
 21:53:46  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Audio is coming through fine for me on iTunes
 21:54:01  chep2m -> -EdTechTalk: Ellen here; I just got cut off somehow?
 21:54:08  mrmayo -> -EdTechTalk: When you say the tools matter do you mean that there are skills involved in figuring out those tools?
 21:54:10  derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: @ann no is linked off your main page?
 21:54:13  Ann-NJTechTeacher -> -EdTechTalk: I'm doing surprisingly well with the audio tonight
 21:54:22  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: ellen can you listen on the site edtechtalk.com?
 21:54:34  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: just click the listen button?
 21:55:18  derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: @Ann I shared the Mathplayground k-7 project
 21:55:21  mrmayo -> -EdTechTalk: I see value in simply seeing if students can spend 45 minutes figuring out how a new tool works by reading the directions- clicking around and experimenting
 21:55:27  chep2m -> -EdTechTalk: I actually think that I might sign out. Scott has the real story covered and can take it from here. Thanks, one and all...and I will stay tuned to Scott in hopes that there is something more that we can do.
 21:55:57  chep2m -> -EdTechTalk: in the meantime...this type of teaching is so powerful and meaningful for all involved, and I commend you all for supporting it and doing it. Lucky kids. Have fun with it; be well...Ellen
 21:56:00  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I agree--I think the teachers play a key role in extending the learning through a VT so it's not just pictures and shallow, single responses.
 21:56:04  Ann-NJTechTeacher -> -EdTechTalk: @derrallg no on math blog.  Having copy/paste troubles.  I'll send it to you via twitter
 21:56:09  Lee Baber -> -EdTechTalk: Nice thread http://youthwiki.wikispaces.com/Russian+Orthodox+Slavic+Christmas
 21:56:27  derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: @Ann great, thanks
 21:58:53  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: That's a great suggestion for an alternative to scanning student projects--doing it on a free online site would work well.
 22:01:09  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Did I miss the explanation about Tumbler? Is there a link?
 22:01:19  paulallison -> -EdTechTalk: tumblr.com
 22:01:20  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: tumblr.com
 22:01:26  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Thanks.
 22:01:33  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: we hoped to have the founder on tonight but maybe next week
 22:01:33  ben -> -EdTechTalk: microblog
 22:01:41  Lee Baber -> -EdTechTalk: Do we have a couple of good tumblr examples?
 22:01:49  mrmayo -> -EdTechTalk: Do you have students on Tumblr- do they create their own accounts? do you rss all the feeds?
 22:02:03  Lee Baber -> -EdTechTalk: The sign up is really fast
 22:02:51  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: You're right! I just signed up! Less than 30 secs.
 22:03:03  SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: mrmayo save your questions for next week and we'll see if we can get david then!
 22:03:18  mrmayo -> -EdTechTalk: okay
 22:03:48  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Do you get a URL when you upload a photo on tumblr?
 22:04:01  derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: @Ann i think twitter just went out couldn't send you DM
 22:05:00  derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: I like how Tumblr and Kwout work so well together
 22:05:16  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: What's Kwout?
 22:05:29  Durff graduate of 2017 -> -EdTechTalk: getting late - nite ye'all
 22:05:38  mrmayo -> -EdTechTalk: bye :)
 22:05:48  Ann-NJTechTeacher -> -EdTechTalk: @derrallg Jump over to Pownce
 22:06:02  derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: @peggy Its a way to grab pictures and text
 22:06:12  derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: @ann good idea :)
 22:06:23  PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Hmm-background audio :-) love it!
