 19:41:51  JoNelle  before 5th- girls don't know that it may be uncool to like tech

 19:42:04  cheryloakes~Seedlings  I agree joNelle!

 19:44:44  JoNelle  Would you pls address SL and elem level?

 19:45:22  cheryloakes~Seedlings  JoNelle, we are on the same wave link

 19:45:58  JoNelle  collaboration takes more time to organize it and learn the tech- worth every minute. 

 19:46:03  JoNelle  good on the name:)

 19:46:27  cheryloakes~Seedlings  oh, thank you joNelle

 19:47:32  cheryloakes~Seedlings  Welcome Deb!!!

 19:47:48  debbarrows  Good evening.

 19:47:57  cheryloakes~Seedlings  imbee I think

 19:51:21  cheryloakes~Seedlings  great idea to use Webkins for nutrition   by Jonelle

 19:51:25  kcaise  you don't have to have a code to enter the webkin world?

 19:51:48  cheryloakes~Seedlings  I think you do kcaise, you need a code from one webkin

 19:52:18  MaryOB  great idea

 19:52:38  cheryloakes~Seedlings  Maria Knee also uses a webkin with her kindergarten and shares with each student

 19:52:50  alicebarr (seedlings)  Hey Sarah

 19:52:51  cheryloakes~Seedlings  Sarah S, no classes tonight/

 19:52:56  MaryOB  Hi Sarah

 19:53:12  Sarah S  Got home "on time" - new timeslot is 4-6:30

 19:53:18  cheryloakes~Seedlings  yippeee

 19:53:22  MaryOB  So many kids have them - they could bring their own

 19:53:36  cheryloakes~Seedlings  good idea MaryOB that is one way

 19:53:43  Sarah S  Just listened to last week's show on the drive home. Great stuff. Looking forward to getting back into the Seedlings Ning and getting more involved. :)

 19:55:05  Kevin Jarrett  Here is our middle school newspaper/media club: http://tbirdtimes.org/

 19:55:09  Sarah S  I wish more was happening at the elementary level in our district . . 

 19:55:19  alicebarr (seedlings)  Yea! Sarah!! We look forward to learning from you!

 19:55:26  cheryloakes~Seedlings  hello Jay, welcome

 19:55:33  Jay  Hi

 19:56:29  Sarah S  That's so empowering!

 19:56:49  cheryloakes~Seedlings  We are discussing students, teachable moments, making good decisions in online environments.

 19:56:49  Sarah S  The autonomy to make it their own is really key.

 19:57:25  alicebarr (seedlings)  dizzywood.com

 19:57:33  cheryloakes~Seedlings  dizzywood.com  is another good one from Kevin.

 19:57:37  Jay  maybe schools should run a new course - "Online Communities" teaching this stuff

 19:57:54  alicebarr (seedlings)  @jay Great idea

 19:58:08  cheryloakes~Seedlings  Good idea, I am going to put online and virtual environments in my tech plan

 19:58:16  kcaise  my niece loves bellasara.com or something like that

 19:58:18  alicebarr (seedlings)  @Jay would it be for students?

 19:58:31  alicebarr (seedlings)  bellasara.com

 19:58:32  Jay  maybe students and teachers.... do it together ;-)

 19:58:39  cheryloakes~Seedlings  yes Jay!

 19:59:00  alicebarr (seedlings)  @Jay that would be cool!

 19:59:15  kcaise  they take care of horses

 20:00:51  cheryloakes~Seedlings  Sarah is a google certified teacher as well!

 20:01:27  Sarah S  It's always worth taking a risk!

 20:01:33  MaryOB  The only failure is not taking the risk

 20:01:51  kcaise  how many apply each time now?

 20:02:08  MaryOB  What is the advantage?
