21:17:30 lee baber - welcome
21:17:33 lee baber - http://blogging4educators.pbwiki.com/
21:18:31 murcha - Do search engines pick up categories or tags or both Which is better
21:18:45 lee baber - http://blogging4educators.pbwiki.com/
21:18:53 lee baber - tags i think
21:18:55 lee baber - is better
21:18:57 judi epcke - interesting idea
21:19:04 Durff - whichever you want murcha
21:19:30 Durff - depends on the search engine
21:19:36 lee baber - It depends on where the tag or category is placed in your html code
21:19:42 lee baber - and how it is used
21:19:52 lee baber - there are tricks to making one or the other work better
21:19:54 murcha - @lee html is a bit heavy for me. Not good with it
21:20:12 judi epcke - Hi Hockeymom. didn't see you come in
21:20:13 lee baber - no need to know that
21:20:54 lee baber - but i was explaining in tech terms an answer for you ... but tags work well in search engines if you are sure to put those tags in all the time the same way in everything you do
21:20:58 judi epcke - How old are the kids they teach?
21:21:04 ncavillones - @murcha: search engine visibility has a lot to do with meta tags
21:21:24 Durff - hs judi
21:21:34 judi epcke - ?
21:21:40 judi epcke - oh, got it
21:21:45 ncavillones - if you can edit the html for your page, you can just look for the meta tag and insert keywords
21:21:58 judi epcke - Doing 5 things at once, and none of them well.
21:22:26 lizbdavis - Is the search in technorati?
21:22:27 Durff - i do nothing welll
21:22:34 Durff - except drink coffee
21:22:58 judi epcke - @durff should I buy some Starbucks stock?
21:23:05 lizbdavis - So true.
21:23:11 Durff - absolutely
21:23:26 CarlaArena - http://brazilandbrazilians.blogspot.com
21:25:17 dougsymington - love the notion of the "power of tagging"
21:25:38 dougsymington - Carla's right, once learners "see the power" try and stop them
21:25:41 Carla Raguseo (Arg.) - http://www.technorati.com/tag/edublogtalk?authority=n&language=n

21:55:01 TimFahlberg - I can ask my friends at TechSmith
21:55:05 dougsymington - made a post at the tumbl'n teachers page, but deleted it because it was "top o' page" and didn't want to leave it there
21:55:14 SusanEttenheim - questions from the chat room?
21:55:30 robertoborda - I have a question
21:55:31 dougsymington - what's the future for pedagogy and voicethread?
21:55:36 SusanEttenheim - great!
21:55:41 cheryloakes- snowy - @ lisa, re: Jing, no I don't know jing future, I did buy into it since I love it.
21:55:47 SusanEttenheim - say more doug?
21:55:57 judi epcke - @doug That's how it goes. Like a blog most recent on top
21:56:09 robertoborda - How about posting more than just text, specially for mathematics!
21:56:17 dougsymington - more about problem and project-based learning and challenging students to contribute/interact/build
21:56:22 Lisa Thumann - Thanks @Cheryl - I rumors, but nothing has been confirmed
21:56:26 dougsymington - with VT as medium
21:56:31 CarlaArena - voicethread adds motivation, hands on practice
21:56:41 cheryloakes- snowy - @lisa, they must be swamped, it is so easy.
21:57:04 alicebarr - @lizbdavis @techteacher Now I see tublin teachers Thank you. That was weird
21:57:05 CarlaArena - http://voicethread.com/share/11608/ I was amazed to see my low-tech highly anxious adult students to share there
21:57:26 SusanEttenheim - roberto - any ideas?
21:57:28 judi epcke - Yeah 4 Alice
21:57:31 dougsymington - present challenge and encourage students to their own way to objectives and "outcome"
21:57:51 alicebarr - Whew! now I just need mew invite for Open Pd
21:57:56 CarlaArena - and I could get closer to them because I was their online moderator
21:58:09 judi epcke - Text and voice for the mathcasts
21:58:17 lizbdavis - Related to tumblr - I just learned about http://www.edutagger.com Not sure what I think yet.
21:58:20 robertoborda - I am talking interactive!
21:58:37 techieteacher - lizbdavis - i am planning to explore that later tonight
21:58:40 robertoborda - I am talking more that just show and tell!
21:58:49 alexr - @robertoborda check out Geometer's sketchpad.
21:59:07 robertoborda - I use Geometer's Sketchpad!
21:59:17 robertoborda - I use Mathematica!
21:59:19 dougsymington - is there a way to comment at specific points in a video VT, or just the entire video. Not able to stop video and comment "on that spot" correct?
21:59:20 alexr - Good.
21:59:38 lizbdavis - The person who developed it emailed me. Which was interesting...
21:59:52 Lisa Thumann - @liz Did you add that link to Teachers.tumblr yet?
21:59:54 CarlaArena - yes, doug
22:00:04 judi epcke - Love the idea of the kids using Jing to create tutorials for each other. Maybe for teachers too
22:00:10 CarlaArena - you can comment in different slides
22:00:11 techieteacher - Lisa - I believe it's on there from earlier today
22:00:23 TimFahlberg - for the Geometer's Sketchpad people - have you used GeoGebra?
22:00:24 techieteacher - I think I posted it
22:00:38 TimFahlberg - it's free and very powerful and what the rest of the world is starting to use heavily
22:01:10 judi epcke - Do most people use regular VT or ed.voicethread? Just curious
22:01:16 techieteacher - ed.VT here
22:01:22 dougsymington - @judi lots to learn from learnersfor each other, but especially for us...
22:01:29 cheryloakes- snowy - night all, great conversations in chat and audio,
22:01:37 judi epcke - Bye Cheryl
22:01:47 dougsymington - cya Cheryl, happy skiing
22:02:02 cheryloakes- snowy - you bet doug, hope to see you tomorrow while packing!
22:02:03 TimFahlberg - Our mathcasts wiki has lots of resources on what tools and methods to use to create mathcasts: VT, Jing, CS, which tablets, etc
22:02:06 SusanEttenheim - night cheryl
22:02:16 judi epcke - That's good to know. Didn't know that about video
22:02:20 cheryloakes- snowy - great show.

22:05:25 SusanEttenheim - great judi
22:05:36 SusanEttenheim - what else everyone?
22:05:45 robertoborda - The implications of the internet for teaching and learning mathematics.
22:06:01 lee baber - tim...did you say the mcarthur f. results have been posted?
22:06:03 lizbdavis - I'm trying to figure out how to get the music composition classwork (garageband) up on itunes.
22:06:16 dougsymington - a show with students do "show n tell" on what they've done with tools across the curriculum
22:06:19 lee baber - we can help with that
22:06:25 lee baber - good idea doug
22:06:44 judi epcke - @lizbdavis Can't you just export it to itunes like a podcast?
22:06:47 robertoborda - I love the idea of teaching mathematics outside the box and moving away from the traditional model of teaching math!
22:06:55 TimFahlberg - Could I email some of you to answer questions you have related to mathcasts? Tim.Fahlberg@gmail.com
22:07:14 jeffmason - math/science integrations
22:07:19 judi epcke - YEs thanks Tim.
22:07:24 lizbdavis - @judi I think you have to call it a podcast to get it on iTunes. Murcha is helping me with this - using podomatic.
22:07:45 judi epcke - oh
22:07:55 SusanEttenheim - tim and roberto - let's build out a math show !
