2008-12-18 19:38:59 [Message] jan smith -> -EdTechTalk: I'm on Vancouver Island, half way up the island. I grew up in Ottawa, so I know how to dress for this weather--many kids here come in running shoes!
2008-12-18 19:39:36 [Message] CLykowski -> -EdTechTalk: I had a student in shorts today It's 20 degrees with snow on the ground
2008-12-18 19:39:50 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: but Lisa you are living proof that you can teach a different way and still have kids do well on the tests!
2008-12-18 19:39:51 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: that's not unusual...especially on gym days
2008-12-18 19:41:00 [Message] lisaparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Welcome everyone.

2008-12-18 19:45:26 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: hehehe
2008-12-18 19:45:27 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: that's a very interesting point--working with kindergartners is similar to working with teachers
2008-12-18 19:45:48 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: everything we knowwe learned in K, peg, you know that
2008-12-18 19:45:56 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I sure did!

2008-12-18 19:46:57 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @Steve-you're impacting thousands of kids in your role
2008-12-18 19:47:21 [Message] CLykowski -> -EdTechTalk: bowing to Steve
2008-12-18 19:47:22 [Message] CLykowski -> -EdTechTalk: lol
2008-12-18 19:47:23 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: Yeah, how about impacting some NJ kids and come to my district
2008-12-18 19:47:31 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: reading the DEN blog posts tells the story about impact
2008-12-18 19:49:00 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I think we all have ADHD as a result of social networking!!
2008-12-18 19:49:20 [Message] susanvg -> -EdTechTalk: or ADD anyway
2008-12-18 19:49:24 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: don't you think most teachers have ADHD anyway?
2008-12-18 19:49:32 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: or ADD.. I know I do
2008-12-18 19:49:42 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: for me it's ADHD because I go back and forth between 2 computers :-)
2008-12-18 19:49:53 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: Still????
2008-12-18 19:49:58 [Message] susanvg -> -EdTechTalk: I think that's pingpong syndrome
2008-12-18 19:50:13 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: You all should have seen Peggy at my house doing that... pretty amazing
2008-12-18 19:50:38 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: funny-pingpon syndrome--a new term for me
2008-12-18 19:50:46 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: can't type either!
2008-12-18 19:51:05 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: So...is Stevestill here?
2008-12-18 19:51:19 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: (peggy...it's contagious)
2008-12-18 19:52:00 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I don't think ADD is a bad thing when you look at the accomplishments of ADD people-Michael Phelps-Olympics is a great example.
2008-12-18 19:52:51 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: He has a wonderful mom who knew exactly what to tell him
2008-12-18 19:53:00 [Message] lisaparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Hi Nicole
2008-12-18 19:53:04 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: there is a line...follow it as fast as you can to the other end
2008-12-18 19:53:08 [Message] CLykowski -> -EdTechTalk: in my class I allow my students freedom to move around after direct instruction and I also have sensory items in class that have made a hugdifference
2008-12-18 19:53:08 [Message] nhill -> -EdTechTalk: good evening
2008-12-18 19:53:19 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: CL..that makes so much sense
2008-12-18 19:53:22 [Message] CLykowski -> -EdTechTalk: sorry...huge
2008-12-18 19:53:29 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: getting old slows you down--sitting still isn't so bad :-)
2008-12-18 19:53:33 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: hugs are good, too
2008-12-18 19:54:12 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: that's funny-buckled into a chair :-)
2008-12-18 19:54:15 [Message] CLykowski -> -EdTechTalk: I have cozy shades and sensory cushions
2008-12-18 19:54:23 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: I am always so surprised to hear that my fifth grade students are doing some hands on things
2008-12-18 19:55:10 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: and are in chairs constantly... I still think they need to be kids and do fun things. For some of them, it's the last time for crafts and that type of thing
2008-12-18 19:55:11 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @Stacy-why? kids love the hands on things!
2008-12-18 19:55:49 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: I know! I was in the fifth grade "pod" today and they haven't made one holiday gift...if it wasn't for my student teacher being there next week, I don't think they would
2008-12-18 19:56:06 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: saw a PPT preso on tips and it said you need to change pace/insert activity every 10 minutes to keep attention
2008-12-18 19:56:10 [Message] lisaparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Hello Cheryl...glad you have power back
2008-12-18 19:56:29 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: even the fourth graders are doing much. This is such a fun time of year an those motor skills need to be encouraged
2008-12-18 19:56:29 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Hi Cheryl!!
2008-12-18 19:56:43 [Message] CLykowski -> -EdTechTalk: Welcome Cheryl glad to see you here
2008-12-18 19:56:51 [Message] jennar -> -EdTechTalk: it takes establishing a culture of understanding that fair is not equal. Fair is everyone getting what they need. Many schools do not have this definition of differentiation of instruction.
2008-12-18 19:56:53 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: Well, every ten minutes may be tough, but they should be doing something.
2008-12-18 19:57:03 [Message] cheryloakes power is restored -> -EdTechTalk: I am so glad too, hi Peggy and Lisa
2008-12-18 19:57:12 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: That's my motto, Jen...Fair is not equal.
2008-12-18 19:57:14 [Message] cheryloakes power is restored -> -EdTechTalk: Hi CherylL
2008-12-18 19:57:18 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: is that an ADD characteristic--chasing down minutia?? oh oh!
2008-12-18 19:57:24 [Message] Steve -> -EdTechTalk: lol
2008-12-18 19:57:47 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: Jen...do your special ed teachers come into the room?
2008-12-18 19:58:36 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: Utohh..they just used healthy eating and Philadelphia in the same sentence on the news...didn't think those words were every said together,
2008-12-18 19:58:56 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: very interesting Lisa!
2008-12-18 19:58:59 [Message] cheryloakes power is restored -> -EdTechTalk: Oh, Lisa you are too hard on yourself
2008-12-18 19:59:00 [Message] jennar -> -EdTechTalk: some... but what many have found works best is differentiation in the classroom by grade level teacher and pull aside for skills groups. It is not perfect but WAY better than other models I have seen tried
2008-12-18 19:59:08 [Message] lisaparisi -> -EdTechTalk: HI Colleen
2008-12-18 19:59:19 [Message] CLykowski -> -EdTechTalk: Hi Colleen
2008-12-18 19:59:38 [Message] jennar -> -EdTechTalk: but it takes collaboration between gr level teacher and sp ed teacher
2008-12-18 19:59:38 [Message] colleenk -> -EdTechTalk: Hi everyone. Been listening - good show.
2008-12-18 19:59:45 [Message] jennar -> -EdTechTalk: and at our school ESL teacher
2008-12-18 19:59:57 [Message] jennar -> -EdTechTalk: and that takes time- which is not always provided
2008-12-18 20:00:39 [Message] nhill -> -EdTechTalk: what about the parents...who push for the meds
2008-12-18 20:00:42 [Message] fifer1863 -> -EdTechTalk: Hi Barb
2008-12-18 20:00:55 [Message] BarbInNebraska -> -EdTechTalk: Hi Jim, thanks for the plurk!
2008-12-18 20:00:58 [Message] jennar -> -EdTechTalk: and a lack of understanding of just what those medications do!
2008-12-18 20:01:01 [Message] BarbInNebraska -> -EdTechTalk: and link!
2008-12-18 20:02:01 [Message] fifer1863 -> -EdTechTalk: Thanks for that project Steve.  That was so much fun.
2008-12-18 20:02:04 [Message] nhill -> -EdTechTalk: so many of us couldn't keep up.
2008-12-18 20:02:09 [Message] nhill -> -EdTechTalk: God bless you!
2008-12-18 20:02:30 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: ahh momentum!
2008-12-18 20:02:55 [Message] nhill -> -EdTechTalk: maybe one challenge a week...instead of one everyday.
2008-12-18 20:03:07 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: good decision Steve :-)
2008-12-18 20:03:49 [Message] fifer1863 -> -EdTechTalk: Not only did he write about he also impleted the tips
2008-12-18 20:03:58 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: anytime you have a daily commitment it is extremely demanding and hard to keep up with on top of everything else!
2008-12-18 20:04:01 [Message] fifer1863 -> -EdTechTalk: implemented
2008-12-18 20:04:28 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I think the entire 30 days blogging series was incredible! I learned so much from the posts and comments!
2008-12-18 20:04:47 [Message] fifer1863 -> -EdTechTalk: Oh right the comments were incredible
2008-12-18 20:04:48 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: 30 days...got some great ideas from that
2008-12-18 20:05:42 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I know it was time consuming to create the original posts but they will live on and be used for a very long time. I keep going back to them.
2008-12-18 20:06:04 [Message] CLykowski -> -EdTechTalk: I'm glad breathing comes naturally I have no time to shedule that
2008-12-18 20:06:32 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: It reminds me of the commitment to post a photo dail to 366 photos with Darcy Norman. Awesome project but I couldn't keep up.
2008-12-18 20:06:50 [Message] nhill -> -EdTechTalk: It is nice to hear that others do the same stuggling with the blogging...having intentions and not getting to it.
2008-12-18 20:06:58 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: You can only do what you can do
2008-12-18 20:07:10 [Message] nhill -> -EdTechTalk: there are still only 24 hours in a day.
2008-12-18 20:07:27 [Message] mr. iphone -> -EdTechTalk: you can check on multiple browsers in dreamweaver cs3 and cs4
2008-12-18 20:07:38 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: that's a good thing to know
2008-12-18 20:07:38 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I think we feel guilty because we are educators and want to keep our promises and live up to our own expectations and commitments.
2008-12-18 20:07:42 [Message] fifer1863 -> -EdTechTalk: Use your analytics  to see what others are using to see your blog
2008-12-18 20:08:31 [Message] jennar -> -EdTechTalk: I wonder if that is the greatest value of contests/rules/initiatives: if the goal is to provide pressure so we commit at a time that we all try and talk
2008-12-18 20:08:49 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: standards!! :-) we set our own high standards!
2008-12-18 20:08:58 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: that was the isoloation of teaching
2008-12-18 20:09:15 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: writing for the sake of just writing
2008-12-18 20:09:30 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: lisa has a LIFE
2008-12-18 20:09:48 [Message] BarbInNebraska -> -EdTechTalk: I certainly don't say anything profound on Twitter and Plurk!
2008-12-18 20:09:55 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: there are many trailblazers!
2008-12-18 20:09:58 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: oh, Barb..you do 2
2008-12-18 20:10:21 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: and I learn from all of you
2008-12-18 20:10:22 [Message] BarbInNebraska -> -EdTechTalk: @stacy, thanks! The Twitter and Plurk community sure is fun, tho!
2008-12-18 20:10:36 [Message] fifer1863 -> -EdTechTalk: @barbinnebraska your receipes that you plurk are awesome

2008-12-18 20:11:05 [Message] BarbInNebraska -> -EdTechTalk: @fifer1863 awww, thanks!
2008-12-18 20:11:20 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: it also allows you time for reflection
2008-12-18 20:11:32 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @Barb-I like that perspective about reading our own writing. That's important.
2008-12-18 20:11:59 [Message] nhill -> -EdTechTalk: When I read my writing I think ick!
2008-12-18 20:12:00 [Message] jennar -> -EdTechTalk: and writing advances thinking: to get something down in print takes physically and intellectually a different process than thinking or talking
2008-12-18 20:12:44 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @Steve-it's so wonderful to hear your personal stories!
2008-12-18 20:12:58 [Message] susanvg -> -EdTechTalk: That's why my blog is called reflexions (reflex plus reflect)
2008-12-18 20:13:20 [Message] jennar -> -EdTechTalk: ooh susan, I like that!
2008-12-18 20:13:22 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @susanvg-love that title and didn't know the meaning
2008-12-18 20:13:46 [Message] BarbInNebraska -> -EdTechTalk: I think people are becoming more comfortable with technology and using it so much so projects don't seem inovative
2008-12-18 20:13:55 [Message] susanvg -> -EdTechTalk: also - being from Montreal - reflexion is reflection in French
2008-12-18 20:13:57 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: barb...true...
2008-12-18 20:14:17 [Message] BarbInNebraska -> -EdTechTalk: no, *borrow* ideas!
2008-12-18 20:14:21 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: there is only one original idea in teaching and we share
2008-12-18 20:14:30 [Message] BarbInNebraska -> -EdTechTalk: Sharing is caring!!!!!
2008-12-18 20:14:41 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: Hey,,...that's our plurk line
2008-12-18 20:14:44 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: That's Harry Wong's mantra--steal ideas that you think will work for you

2008-12-18 20:15:48 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: I wrote about nothing...started with the the alphabet and got to g...and then said...gee, I am writing about something
2008-12-18 20:16:05 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: funny Stacy!
2008-12-18 20:16:15 [Message] BarbInNebraska -> -EdTechTalk: @lisa, that's good :-)
2008-12-18 20:16:22 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: I wanted my students to see that it was hard to come up with something every day
2008-12-18 20:16:53 [Message] BarbInNebraska -> -EdTechTalk: many times I have to give credit to you guys and I just use the genaric term, "My Internet Friends"
2008-12-18 20:16:57 [Message] nhill -> -EdTechTalk: I think that I made to like day 4.
2008-12-18 20:16:59 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: even if "some" of us only did a few days, we were better for it
2008-12-18 20:17:03 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: 80 who said they were taking the challenge but many many more who benefitted from the tips and used them
2008-12-18 20:17:34 [Message] nhill -> -EdTechTalk: Yes ..then we could use the book and catch up at our leisure.
2008-12-18 20:17:42 [Message] BarbInNebraska -> -EdTechTalk: So many of my co-workers are not plugged in, so if I used all of your names, they wouldn't get it, so you are all known as My Internet Friends!
2008-12-18 20:17:53 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: don't you think that personal investment is what makes a really powerful blog post!
2008-12-18 20:18:02 [Message] lisaparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Barb, I do the same thing
2008-12-18 20:18:03 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: I talked about you all today in class to my students...my friends from around the country...
2008-12-18 20:18:10 [Message] fifer1863 -> -EdTechTalk: Or we have something we want to share
2008-12-18 20:18:39 [Message] BarbInNebraska -> -EdTechTalk: I wish I was going to NECC
2008-12-18 20:18:41 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I still have some of those early podcasts on my iPod :-)
2008-12-18 20:18:52 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: Barb...can't you?  Peg..remember OUR NECC?
2008-12-18 20:19:07 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Absolutely--in Philly
2008-12-18 20:19:17 [Message] nhill -> -EdTechTalk: This will be my first NECC I'm so excited!
2008-12-18 20:19:21 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: 2005
2008-12-18 20:19:26 [Message] lisaparisi -> -EdTechTalk: I am presenting this year.

2008-12-18 20:19:45 [Message] nhill -> -EdTechTalk: Congrats Lisa!
2008-12-18 20:19:46 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: We're all going to go to Lisa and Ken and a bunch more
2008-12-18 20:19:59 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: yes and the platter with chocolate and invitations to come to our table :-)
2008-12-18 20:20:08 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: Always get the title FROM the writing
2008-12-18 20:20:57 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: but kids need a timeline of some sort
2008-12-18 20:20:58 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: the tips Jason Ohler shared yesterday in the webinar changed my thinking about organizing for writing--really good!
2008-12-18 20:21:02 [Message] BarbInNebraska -> -EdTechTalk: NECC is too expensive for me, but I'm going to our Nebraska conference in April
2008-12-18 20:21:22 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: And most adults can stick to one topic when writing...kids have a hard time doing that
2008-12-18 20:21:26 [Message] fifer1863 -> -EdTechTalk: You can stay with us Barb  :)
2008-12-18 20:21:34 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: Peg...are you going to DC?
2008-12-18 20:21:40 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: what a great story Lisa--I think we've all experienced that
2008-12-18 20:21:58 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I'm hoping to go to DC--counting my pennies and looking for a roommate to share expenses.
2008-12-18 20:22:19 [Message] susanvg -> -EdTechTalk: hoping to go to necc this year
2008-12-18 20:22:25 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: Ruth and I are going...hope Wendy is well enough to be there
2008-12-18 20:22:40 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: We are like that with our kids...hoping our lessons get through
2008-12-18 20:22:41 [Message] BarbInNebraska -> -EdTechTalk: @fifer1863 is Mrs Fifer going too?
2008-12-18 20:22:41 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: it's good that there is a comment/response area to be able to clarify what you meant in your original post
2008-12-18 20:23:47 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: I remember when you had that problem, Lisa
2008-12-18 20:24:05 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @Stacy-we need to have a reunion at NECC!
2008-12-18 20:24:07 [Message] fifer1863 -> -EdTechTalk: yes and the kids too Bar
2008-12-18 20:24:10 [Message] fifer1863 -> -EdTechTalk: Barb
2008-12-18 20:24:16 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: Peggy..absolutely
2008-12-18 20:24:26 [Message] BarbInNebraska -> -EdTechTalk: @fifer1863 what a great experience for the whole family!
2008-12-18 20:24:35 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: Right,because we want to help you solve your problem
2008-12-18 20:24:49 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: it's not that different than looking at a piece of art--everyone brings their own perspective and connections to the work--art or writing
2008-12-18 20:25:00 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: Barb..don't forget you can write that off for taxes
2008-12-18 20:25:00 [Message] nhill -> -EdTechTalk: great to get feedback from readers...what do they want to hear?
2008-12-18 20:25:05 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: (what little you can)
2008-12-18 20:25:31 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: retired people can't write off NECC on taxes :-(
2008-12-18 20:25:35 [Message] jeffmason -> -EdTechTalk: but, since the blog is a conversation, clarity is possible
2008-12-18 20:25:42 [Message] BarbInNebraska -> -EdTechTalk: @stacy something was going around that NCLB funds could be used to pay for NECC. Could that be true?
2008-12-18 20:26:00 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: Barb..don't know, but would be good to look into that.
2008-12-18 20:27:21 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: Steve is so right about this
2008-12-18 20:27:36 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I know some awesome teachers who aren't using much technology. I agree with Steve--education is doing a lot of right things too.
2008-12-18 20:27:43 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: What do you think about our new leader of Ed from Chicago
2008-12-18 20:27:55 [Message] lisaparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Don't get me started Stacy
2008-12-18 20:27:56 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: some teachers are still on that dirt road
2008-12-18 20:28:06 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: lisa...thought so
2008-12-18 20:28:44 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: was talking about that with kids today...census and how it will be taken in 2010 as opposed to 2000
2008-12-18 20:29:14 [Message] nhill -> -EdTechTalk: So many just don't get this whole PLN yet...many can't understand why I spend so much time online learning.  I can't understand why they aren't.
2008-12-18 20:29:20 [Message] mr. iphone -> -EdTechTalk: not everyone is a constructivist
2008-12-18 20:29:32 [Message] BarbInNebraska -> -EdTechTalk: @stacy that's an interesting thought. I remember how cool is was to see my Grandma's 1910 census entry on microfiche
2008-12-18 20:29:41 [Message] lisaparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Those same people, Nicole, will ask how you found someone to collaborate with or how did you learn about...
2008-12-18 20:29:43 [Message] mr. iphone -> -EdTechTalk: there are other people out there who don't think the same way about teaching
2008-12-18 20:30:00 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: and yet some teachers never go back to learn more
2008-12-18 20:30:17 [Message] fifer1863 -> -EdTechTalk: But the principals must enforce the use of technology too
2008-12-18 20:30:21 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: institutional change takes a long time but individual teachers may make changes much more quickly once they see value--they want to improve their own teaching and continue to learn
2008-12-18 20:30:36 [Message] BarbInNebraska -> -EdTechTalk: some look down on me because I don't have my Masters. I believe I'm still learning, but not at an University!
2008-12-18 20:30:43 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: principals are usually the LAST people...mine STILL hasn't learned to say wiki correctly and hasn't yet signed on to mine
2008-12-18 20:30:49 [Message] mr. iphone -> -EdTechTalk: constructivism isn't the only answer in education
2008-12-18 20:30:56 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: barb...doesn't have to be uni learning
2008-12-18 20:30:59 [Message] mr. iphone -> -EdTechTalk: there are other solutions out there
2008-12-18 20:31:00 [Message] lisaparisi -> -EdTechTalk: My principal just started a blog.
2008-12-18 20:31:05 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: some only have their masters for the $$
2008-12-18 20:31:07 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @Barb-it isn't the degree that's important!
2008-12-18 20:31:08 [Message] BarbInNebraska -> -EdTechTalk: @stacy, that's what I think!
2008-12-18 20:31:30 [Message] nhill -> -EdTechTalk: my principal barely emails...but is supportive of anything.  Was impressed with plurk.
2008-12-18 20:31:37 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I have people who ask me why I keep going to conferences and workshops now that I'm retired. I can't imagine NOT doing that!
2008-12-18 20:31:48 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: but don't forget, lots of those bloggers are kids
2008-12-18 20:32:29 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: some can't because of where they are located
2008-12-18 20:32:29 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: there are many more teachers who might be blogging with students if the sites and technology weren't blocked
2008-12-18 20:32:42 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: heck, skype is blocked in my district
2008-12-18 20:32:59 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: skype is blocked in many districts--very sad!
2008-12-18 20:33:02 [Message] fifer1863 -> -EdTechTalk: I promote wikis more and more with teachers
2008-12-18 20:33:07 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: i think when the parents get younger, they will be okay with us wanting to change.
2008-12-18 20:33:23 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: older parents don't even like the idea of how we teach multiplication
2008-12-18 20:33:31 [Message] BarbInNebraska -> -EdTechTalk: @fifer1863 I'm embarrassed to say but Morpheus's wiki intimidates me.
2008-12-18 20:33:33 [Message] lisaparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Interesting idea Stacy

2008-12-18 20:34:01 [Message] mr. iphone -> -EdTechTalk: maybe some parents and teachers don't think that constructivism is the best way to teach

2008-12-18 20:34:25 [Message] fifer1863 -> -EdTechTalk: Alan has a new book out on web 2.0
2008-12-18 20:34:30 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: love that quote too Stacy!
2008-12-18 20:34:43 [Message] BarbInNebraska -> -EdTechTalk: @fifer1863 I agree, but his wiki looks hard to me! I've done a wiki before, but this one has too many bells and whistles
2008-12-18 20:34:44 [Message] nhill -> -EdTechTalk: I do a survey with students upon entering my class...right now out of 105 students 99 have a computer at home.
2008-12-18 20:34:47 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: yes
2008-12-18 20:34:56 [Message] mr. iphone -> -EdTechTalk: maybe education leaders should take their opinions seriously instead of hoping that they'll go away

2008-12-18 20:35:23 [Message] stacy -> -EdTechTalk: see, my third graders do as well
2008-12-18 20:35:25 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: we need to continue to explore the computers they have in their pockets! cell phones can be powerful learning tools!
