Passions were discussed this week.  Maria Knee and Lisa Parisi discussed passions other than teaching with Alice Mercer, Scott Shelhart, and Pat Hensley.  Since our passion is talking, we didn't always stay on topic but the conversation was rockin'.

2008-10-26 11:50:49 [Message] Cathyjo -> -EdTechTalk: it is one reason I hated Blogger, but they have fixed that issue and now offer a comments feed
2008-10-26 11:50:51 [Message] Alice Mercer -> -EdTechTalk: I have to approve the comments cathyjo, it's required that comments be moderated.

2008-10-26 11:51:13 [Message] Maureen/bcdtech -> -EdTechTalk: @cathyjo- I get asked that and I tell the sad truth- don't get much sleep

2008-10-26 11:53:10 [Message] Alice Mercer -> -EdTechTalk: http://[i]blogname[/i].edublogs.org/comments/feed/
2008-10-26 11:53:29 [Message] Alice Mercer -> -EdTechTalk: Instead of blogname, put in the actual name of the blog, and voila, you have a comments feed
2008-10-26 11:53:30 [Message] MariaK -> -EdTechTalk: ms mercer - can we pull you in?
2008-10-26 11:53:34 [Message] jan smith -> -EdTechTalk: I do have moderation power--I have edit some comments, but I want my kids to see and respond...
2008-10-26 11:53:35 [Message] sheila -> -EdTechTalk: Nice when there are opportunities for teachers to combine passions
2008-10-26 11:53:37 [Message] Maureen/bcdtech -> -EdTechTalk: I moderate by thru the edublogs emails- but I am usually right there when the kids are blogging and get asked- "is this OK?"  if they have questions before they post.
2008-10-26 11:53:39 [Message] Alice Mercer -> -EdTechTalk: If ya like?
2008-10-26 11:53:57 [Message] Lisa Parisi -> -EdTechTalk: Turnon skype

2008-10-26 11:54:49 [Message] derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: I let some comments go through this year for the first time from students commenting on spelling and grammar mistakes because I can't get some students to follow through on what I've been asking
2008-10-26 11:55:23 [Message] Maureen/bcdtech -> -EdTechTalk: I get energy from a good day with the kids and sometimes from connections with other teachers, but not enough most times.

2008-10-26 12:29:51 [Message] Maureen/bcdtech -> -EdTechTalk: @ Lisa- I agree and on too many committees. But I want to have a voice in future at my school.
