2008-02-25 19:24:09 [Message] Sarah S -> -EdTechTalk: I have really appreciated those presenters who put together a wiki ahead of time to both share their ideas and also to get feedback from those planning to attend their session.

2008-02-25 19:33:44 [Message] mjantzi -> -EdTechTalk: Educon 2.0 was great with the ustreaming.
2008-02-25 19:34:03 [Message] Sarah S -> -EdTechTalk: Hm. One of the comments about the UStream factor is that the sessions that are less interactive with the live audience are better for ustreaming 
2008-02-25 19:34:04 [Message] AliceMercer -> -EdTechTalk: Were you there too Margo?
2008-02-25 19:34:15 [Message] AliceMercer -> -EdTechTalk: Yes Sarah!

2008-02-25 19:39:26 [Message] Sarah S -> -EdTechTalk: That tagging of blog entries is key to continue the conversation
2008-02-25 19:40:00 [Message] Sarah S -> -EdTechTalk: If the conference organizers set a standard tag it works great.

2008-02-25 21:31:07 [Message] susan cutajar -> -EdTechTalk: The computer and new technologies are  a great way to communicatewith their children, open opportunities for discussion.  Kids are great teachers to their parents.  
2008-02-25 21:31:16 [Message] kolson29 -> -EdTechTalk: @lizbdavis that's exactly what I did, I sat and talked with them and let them lead the way
2008-02-25 21:31:19 [Message] VinnieVrotny -> -EdTechTalk: Parents have a wonderful set of wisdom to share. They just need to have the confidence that it is ok not to know everything. They are used to being in control

2008-02-25 21:32:45 [Message] murcha -> -EdTechTalk: A good percentage of our students still do not have access to internet and parents are not at all internet savvy
2008-02-25 21:32:58 [Message] Cindy Seibel -> -EdTechTalk: Should we be looking at their FB pages?  Would we read their diaries?
2008-02-25 21:33:10 [Message] kolson29 -> -EdTechTalk: that's exactly (students showing parents) what we talked about in my workshop
2008-02-25 21:33:37 [Message] kolson29 -> -EdTechTalk: Most students make their FB page private if they don't want us looking
2008-02-25 21:33:46 [Message] Cindy Seibel -> -EdTechTalk: Isn't it better that we talk to them about how they use FB? rather than look at their content?
2008-02-25 21:33:50 [Message] kolson29 -> -EdTechTalk: and DON'T ask to be their friend!

2008-02-25 21:34:33 [Message] susan cutajar -> -EdTechTalk: Cindy and I talked today about an opportunity to work with teachers and help set up a WIKI to help coordinate and communicate after school activities.  Students could communicate if they were not able to attend, and everything is easily shared and communicated.  The teachers, students and parents make a formidable team.
2008-02-25 21:34:40 [Message] kolson29 -> -EdTechTalk: parents ARE busy! show them how to use tools for their own peer group so they can relate to why kids like using socialnetworking

2008-02-25 21:36:02 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I agree with the suggestion about teaching parents how to ue the tools--most don't know about RSS feeds but it's similar to Tivo and capturing things when they aren't at home. :-)
2008-02-25 21:36:04 [Message] jmsd18 -> -EdTechTalk: parents r busy, some will use the tools, but we need the others to accept the tools as what our kids need to use regardless
2008-02-25 21:36:08 [Message] kolson29 -> -EdTechTalk: @lizbdavis that's the best way to go about it

2008-02-25 21:43:35 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I also think sometimes parents are afraid to assert themselves with their teens about having access to their MySpace and Facebook sites. It's important!
2008-02-25 21:43:50 [Message] Cindy Seibel -> -EdTechTalk: The article suggests that kids that are at risk are at risk whether it's on the Inet or without technology.
2008-02-25 21:44:21 [Message] kolson29 -> -EdTechTalk: danah boyd makes point that kids who engage in risky behavior online do it offline first

2008-02-25 21:44:42 [Message] Cindy Seibel -> -EdTechTalk: @Kate that's exactly what the apa article provides data about
2008-02-25 21:44:44 [Message] susan cutajar -> -EdTechTalk: Cindy, it would be great to reference the FBI meeting at the school and the suggestion to say active in our childrens lives and not to let go of them too soon.
2008-02-25 21:45:11 [Message] kolson29 -> -EdTechTalk: kids are bored b/c not able to socialize in person, so take interactions online
2008-02-25 21:45:17 [Message] VinnieVrotny -> -EdTechTalk: Yea Sharon. My number one goal for parents is to allow kids to make mistakes, which they will, and keep the lines of communication open so that their kids feel comfortable to let them know if they have made a mistake
2008-02-25 21:45:55 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I thought it was interesting in the PBS video-Growing Up Online-that many of the teens felt their sites should be private and parents shouldn't access them. It's their "right" :-(
2008-02-25 21:45:58 [Message] Cindy Seibel -> -EdTechTalk: This is not to say that parents should not be involved, but suggests that our prevention strategies need to be as focused on the kids as it is with the parents
2008-02-25 21:46:35 [Message] Cindy Seibel -> -EdTechTalk: That risky behaviour is what the apa research supports
2008-02-25 21:47:17 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @kolson29 - I agree about the risky behavior both online and offline.

2008-02-25 21:49:04 [Message] kolson29 -> -EdTechTalk: we need to share with students how WE make mistakes in learning
2008-02-25 21:49:08 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: That's one of the challenges--getting districts to unblock sites so the kids can learn to use them appropriately and not just learn it on their own with their peers
2008-02-25 21:49:38 [Message] Cindy Seibel -> -EdTechTalk: So what are the comments about the students in Thornhill Ont that blogged about teachers (inappropriately) and the excuse was they thought it was private?
2008-02-25 21:49:54 [Message] kolson29 -> -EdTechTalk: but sometimes learning with peers is good teaching experience - it's not our job at school to teach how to set up myspace

2008-02-25 21:50:56 [Message] jmsd18 -> -EdTechTalk: moving beyond the social networks though...we need parents as partners in learning (and using the new tools) so that our systems will feel the need to embrace the new tools.
