Getting started. Parents as Partners in the Edtechtalk community welcomed newcomer parent/teacher team. Great ideas and solutions for working with schools and parents using web 2.0 tools. Matt Montagne and Lorna Costantini shared the air space with Penny Lindballe and Joanne McMahon from Alberta. Pleased to know that they are not alone in experiencing barriers to using these tools, Penny and Joanne went away charged and ready to take the baby steps to encouraging their community to participate.

2008-06-02 21:12:52 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: wehave too many not connected and don't see why they should

 

2008-06-02 21:13:03 [Message] Dennis -> -EdTechTalk: I'mdealing with the same issue. My grandson can't connect regularly.

 

2008-06-02 21:13:03 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:and too many on dial-up

 

2008-06-02 21:13:12 [Message] Dennis -> -EdTechTalk: Myanswer is Yes!

 

2008-06-02 21:13:18 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: itis frustrating

 

2008-06-02 21:13:24 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Iagree with Lorna-go ahead and start and you can work on providing/findingaccess for all.

 

2008-06-02 21:13:37 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:even our cable is too slow

 

2008-06-02 21:13:41 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk:Maybe they can use the library too :-)

 

2008-06-02 21:13:58 [Message] cindyseibel -> -EdTechTalk:we need to open our schools at different hours and in different ways

 

2008-06-02 21:14:07 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:parents with whom i work see no reason to do so

 

2008-06-02 21:14:41 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:too many believe education is something i fill kids up with not somethinglearners pursue

 

2008-06-02 21:14:55 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:yes cindy

 

2008-06-02 21:15:16 [Message] cindyseibel -> -EdTechTalk:we have strong privacy legislation in the province - interpreted differentlyhowever

 

2008-06-02 21:15:42 [Message] cheryloakes -> -EdTechTalk:durff, that is so sad, you must keep yourself focused with the student energyand the possibiilty of where you can lead them

 

2008-06-02 21:15:43 [Message] Dennis -> -EdTechTalk: Ijust started learning in October 2007. You can go to K12Onlineconference.organd "attend" online presentations.

 

2008-06-02 21:15:46 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: ithink our main battle is apathy

 

2008-06-02 21:15:56 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: soone of the challenges is introducing technology as the tool for parentinvolvement

 

2008-06-02 21:16:26 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:@Dennis there are two years worth there!

 

2008-06-02 21:16:42 [Message] cindyseibel -> -EdTechTalk:in our district, teachers can override at any time, and request that sites beunblocked permanently

 

2008-06-02 21:17:31 [Message] Dennis -> -EdTechTalk:@mrsdurff - yes 80 presentations

 

2008-06-02 21:18:06 [Message] Dennis -> -EdTechTalk: thatis why admistrators have to get online!

 

2008-06-02 21:18:15 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Ningis such a great network to do what you wanted

 

2008-06-02 21:18:22 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:@Dennis enjoy watching! I especially like the visual metaphors that Warlickuses and how they differ

 

2008-06-02 21:19:00 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Theissue of control is always big for administrators

 

2008-06-02 21:19:02 [Message] Dennis -> -EdTechTalk:@mrsdurff - i agree with you about david warlick

 

2008-06-02 21:19:03 [Message] cindyseibel -> -EdTechTalk:agree Lorna - teachers/admin have to immerse themselves in these technologiesto understand

 

2008-06-02 21:19:08 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:but then how do we get parents to see value?

 

2008-06-02 21:19:31 [Message] cindyseibel -> -EdTechTalk:@mrsdurff need parents like Penny to show leadership too

 

2008-06-02 21:19:42 [Message] jeannine -> -EdTechTalk:@mrsdurff - true...we need to all groups to see the benefit

 

2008-06-02 21:19:54 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: ineed 20 of her at my school

 

2008-06-02 21:20:09 [Message] Dennis -> -EdTechTalk: Matt- could not agree with you more. You are a great ambassador from web2.0 toparents.

 

2008-06-02 21:20:10 [Message] cindyseibel -> -EdTechTalk:penny has great tenacity

 

2008-06-02 21:20:33 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:our principal did a Ning with his senior english class = loved it

2008-06-02 21:21:35 [Message] jeannine -> -EdTechTalk: Iwas really motivated by seeing David Warlick - having the"evangelists" give a talk to teachers, administrators and parentshelps

2008-06-02 21:21:48 [Message] matt montagne ->-EdTechTalk: LOL Durff!!

 

2008-06-02 21:21:54 [Message] cindyseibel -> -EdTechTalk:i'd like to invite you all to help me build a plan to engage parents in anonline portal with schools. first look at http://blog.tech4learning.ca (to beshared online as well)

 

2008-06-02 21:22:56 [Message] derrallg -> -EdTechTalk:last year at my school we had a video of students talking about why blogging isimportant for them could show at back to school night

 

2008-06-02 21:23:21 [Message] jeannine -> -EdTechTalk:I'm hoping to next year use some subliminal tools - planning to show a shortclip before each meeting ..."Did you know" type things

 

2008-06-02 21:23:41 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: ihave one on my webpage parents watch...they seem to like it, yet...

 

2008-06-02 21:23:46 [Message] cindyseibel -> -EdTechTalk:sounds good jeannine - exploring is helpful

 

2008-06-02 21:23:51 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:i'm very impatient

 

2008-06-02 21:24:04 [Message] sheila -> -EdTechTalk:@jeannine - like that idea . . . short and sweet.

 

2008-06-02 21:24:11 [Message] derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: Ishowed "Did you know" this year as well

 

2008-06-02 21:24:23 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk:Those are great points about people (parents, teachers administrators)experiencing it for themselves

 

2008-06-02 21:24:29 [Message] cindyseibel -> -EdTechTalk:fears on two fronts I think - network security and privacy/security issues

 

2008-06-02 21:24:35 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:schools publish full names of students in newspapers....

 

2008-06-02 21:24:41 [Message] sheila -> -EdTechTalk: Atour annual meeting for tech ed. we do " why I love my . . . "

 

2008-06-02 21:25:01 [Message] cindyseibel -> -EdTechTalk:@mrsdurff - our schools don't do that so much anymore, just newspapers do

 

2008-06-02 21:25:19 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:our schools do around here

 

2008-06-02 21:25:38 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:sports, honor rolls, class trips

 

2008-06-02 21:25:49 [Message] Dennis -> -EdTechTalk: Ning- Isn't it about teaching parents what is appropriate? 98% positive.

 

2008-06-02 21:25:51 [Message] cindyseibel -> -EdTechTalk:our privacy legislation limits significantly what can be publicly displayed(for personal information)

 

2008-06-02 21:25:52 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:why is that less threatening?

 

2008-06-02 21:26:22 [Message] Dennis -> -EdTechTalk: hicindy

 

2008-06-02 21:27:08 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:learners could be (gasp) motivated

 

2008-06-02 21:27:17 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: ohterrible!

 

2008-06-02 21:27:25 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk:Seems like starting slowly and having a clear purpose for the Ning would helpto build trust and confidence

 

2008-06-02 21:27:32 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:they might connect with prior knowledge

 

2008-06-02 21:27:50 [Message] jeannine -> -EdTechTalk:Exactly - we can get to people who can't get to school!

 

2008-06-02 21:27:53 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:they might ectend their learning beyond the curriculum

 

2008-06-02 21:27:57 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Whata strong point for the Ning-you're involving parents who are not normallyinvolved in the school!

 

2008-06-02 21:28:02 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:extend

 

2008-06-02 21:28:04 [Message] Dennis -> -EdTechTalk: Whynot bring parents together to discuss acceptable use on the Ning?

2008-06-02 21:28:46 [Message] Dennis -> -EdTechTalk: Why?

 

2008-06-02 21:28:56 [Message] jeannine -> -EdTechTalk:but you could answer the question if you were at the hocky rink

 

2008-06-02 21:28:57 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:putting people into slots

 

2008-06-02 21:29:02 [Message] cheryloakes -> -EdTechTalk:that sounds so familar trying to keep things apart, teaching and being aaparent or a citizen.

 

2008-06-02 21:29:28 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:@jeannine not according to that thinking

 

2008-06-02 21:29:51 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:but people are amalgams

 

2008-06-02 21:29:59 [Message] sheila -> -EdTechTalk:What's scarier (?) Ning or Nothing?

 

2008-06-02 21:30:07 [Message] derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: Idon't understand this need to keep participants in a child's educationseparated

 

2008-06-02 21:30:08 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: weare not separate entities

 

2008-06-02 21:30:31 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: itmakes no sense derrall

 

2008-06-02 21:30:32 [Message] Dennis -> -EdTechTalk: 1.5

 

2008-06-02 21:30:53 [Message] rjacklin -> -EdTechTalk:@mrsdurff--came in late...is the discussion about a school/parent ning?

 

2008-06-02 21:31:08 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:you should be on time

 

2008-06-02 21:31:11 [Message] Dennis -> -EdTechTalk:Digital citizenship effort - good effort.

2008-06-02 21:31:17 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: itis right now rob

 

2008-06-02 21:32:23 [Message] rjacklin ->-EdTechTalk:  This would be a safeenvironment for mistakes!

 

2008-06-02 21:32:32 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Whatare some of the things your principal might agree to on the Ning so that bothparents and teachers could participate?

 

2008-06-02 21:32:48 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:involving parents in the conversations

 

2008-06-02 21:33:06 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:why not include the entire school community?

 

2008-06-02 21:33:56 [Message] cindyseibel -> -EdTechTalk:the principal has a critical role in setting the culture for the onlinerelationships to happen ( and f2f relationships too). would you agree?

 

2008-06-02 21:34:08 [Message] rjacklin -> -EdTechTalk:Those parents who really want to participate would anyway?? They would starttheir own facebook network for school families. Anyone heard of that?

 

2008-06-02 21:34:16 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Theadvantage of a Ning network is that you can create groups to address some ofthose different interests

 

2008-06-02 21:34:26 [Message] derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: Ithink the only time a online community could be a problem is if ist is closedor excludes participants, we had this at a school with yahoo groups

 

2008-06-02 21:35:23 [Message] jeannine -> -EdTechTalk:@cindyseibel - I think so, even if the principal is not tech savvy, thewillingness to try new things permeates to staff

2008-06-02 21:37:41 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: callit communication network or something less intimidating

 

2008-06-02 21:38:04 [Message] cindyseibel -> -EdTechTalk:@mrsdurff agree - adults need own terms?

 

2008-06-02 21:38:21 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:like training wheels

2008-06-02 21:39:04 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Whatabout trying a wikispace and use it to plan school events that involve parents?

2008-06-02 21:40:09 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:@rob most parents want the first

 

2008-06-02 21:40:15 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk:@rjacklin-that is a great question! dissemination vs interaction

 

2008-06-02 21:40:24 [Message] jeannine -> -EdTechTalk:perhaps even keeping the Ning going for community events...allow school to seeit can be beneficial to communityand then bring the school into the community

 

2008-06-02 21:40:28 [Message] cindyseibel -> -EdTechTalk:@rjacklin it depends. and I don't think they can answer that as long as schoolssay they can only have information not participate

 

2008-06-02 21:40:35 [Message] penny -> -EdTechTalk: butcan we use the hook of information to get them engaged

 

2008-06-02 21:40:37 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: ibeg parents to subscribe to their kid's blogs

 

2008-06-02 21:40:45 [Message] rjacklin -> -EdTechTalk:@cindyseibel--great point!

 

2008-06-02 21:40:53 [Message] rjacklin -> -EdTechTalk:Modeling is so vital

 

2008-06-02 21:40:59 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: yesit's much easier to "control" information if you're justdisseminating

 

2008-06-02 21:41:13 [Message] derrallg -> -EdTechTalk:@rjacklin that's a good point perhaps two stages with interaction coming later

 

2008-06-02 21:41:14 [Message] cindyseibel -> -EdTechTalk:@joanne - we're having more of that conversation among techies in Alberta. Ihave a presentation that speaks to what can/should be done that doesn't hurtthe network

2008-06-02 21:42:55 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Thetools are there so it's the other issues that need to be addressed-educationand demystifying the tools.

 

2008-06-02 21:43:15 [Message] cindyseibel -> -EdTechTalk:so there are two types of fears that I see - one is the security of studentsand the other is the security of the technology.

 

2008-06-02 21:43:16 [Message] rjacklin -> -EdTechTalk:still had a parent who didn't want their child to have a wikispaces user idbecause, "I don't want my child to have another email address."Ignorance is not really bliss.

2008-06-02 21:43:31 [Message] derrallg -> -EdTechTalk:@matt that's the problem some education participants do want to just "pullthe plug" and not have to deal with it

 

2008-06-02 21:43:34 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:people won't listen if they are frightened

 

2008-06-02 21:43:58 [Message] cindyseibel -> -EdTechTalk:the problem with wikispaces, youtube, etc, is not the good stuff is the otherstuff that's available when you open them

 

2008-06-02 21:44:06 [Message] rjacklin -> -EdTechTalk:unblock the wiki first....

 

2008-06-02 21:44:22 [Message] cindyseibel -> -EdTechTalk:youtube has lots that's not educationally or age appropriate

2008-06-02 21:45:24 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Whatif you start with something like class blogmeister that has more controls whileyou're building understanding and potential?

 

2008-06-02 21:45:57 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:blogmeister is a lot of work for the admin

 

2008-06-02 21:46:07 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Ifthe parents want it we'll get it--so true

 

2008-06-02 21:46:11 [Message] mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk:admin of the site not of the school

 

2008-06-02 21:46:35 [Message] sheila -> -EdTechTalk: Istarted with voicethreads to show admin and parents. No photos, no names (codenames)

 

2008-06-02 21:46:43 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk:@mrsdurff-yes it is but it provides the kind of controls administrators arelooking for when it gets started

 

2008-06-02 21:47:18 [Message] rjacklin -> -EdTechTalk:doesn't ed voicethread cost an arm and a leg?

2008-06-02 21:50:16 [Message] cindyseibel -> -EdTechTalk:like that idea - not just discussion but also providing some learning (cheryl'sidea)
