18:54:29 courosa -> I think you really need to get 9 people in, stacked in 3's and play hollywood squares some episode.
18:54:37 PeggyG -> LOL

19:52:20 courosa -> The LHC is down for two months now.
19:52:22 JenW -> Its Princess Leai
19:52:27 James Sigler -> Hackers save the world from a black hole
19:52:47 JenM -> Nite all! Hitting the road for a 2 1/2 hour drive home :(
19:52:49 Gary -> It can't cause the end of the world!!!!
19:52:57 JenM -> See you next week!
19:53:14 JenW -> I read they are postpoining it -- NOT closing it down entirely
19:53:36 PeggyG -> safe trip JenM!
19:53:36 Gary -> Well it is CERN where the internet was actually created.
19:53:55 James Sigler -> Like the game Halo?
19:54:07 JohnS -> True, Gary.
19:54:19 JohnS -> Sort of.
19:54:38 Gary -> Well - first extensively used for a purpose
19:55:00 Gary -> Before we knew about it
19:55:01 James Sigler -> Like the game Halo?
19:55:05 JenW -> did Carla make anyone cry??
19:55:05 PeggyG -> LOL
19:55:15 mrsdurff -> crying and screaming
19:55:20 James Sigler -> I like the some square
19:55:25 mrsdurff -> dave that is
19:55:29 PeggyG -> 5 students dropped on first day? must be rigorous!
19:55:31 mrsdurff -> not carla
19:55:34 James Sigler -> zoom square
19:55:58 James Sigler -> what is that?
19:56:37 James Sigler -> lol
19:56:42 Ron -> I agree totally
19:57:05 JohnS -> Stay tuned next week for video of puppets doing the show.
19:57:30 James Sigler -> cool, the Muppet Show
19:58:01 Gary -> EdTechMuppet
19:58:02 PeggyG -> @courosa-you are masterful in the way you design your courses and teach/facilitate them. I don't think everyone can do it.
19:58:25 James Sigler -> Was that Miss Piggy?
19:58:28 mrsdurff -> go Jen!!
19:58:36 mrsdurff -> Join them Jen
19:58:38 JohnS -> http://jenuinetech.com/blog/?p=372 
19:59:03 courosa -> thanks for the compliment Peggy. I'm still learning, and it's way too much fun to teach this way. Stay tuned, I'm offering an open online course again in January. :-)
19:59:22 James Sigler -> neat
19:59:32 mrsdurff -> that sums it up! carla=nice, dave is not
20:00:02 PeggyG -> I learn from your process with every course you teach--content too but especially the process! I'll look forward to the Jan course!
20:00:13 derrallg -> You help them suffer
20:00:24 James Sigler -> Dora!
20:00:40 mrsdurff -> i can imagine dave saying go rot!
20:00:49 Cathy E -> So Dave, do you let them write down the steps as they go along?
20:00:53 James Sigler -> ROFL
20:01:34 JenW -> LOL -- picturing him standing over people with a ruler :)
20:01:43 PeggyG -> my university students resisted my approach to "take responsibility for your own learning"-this is not a step-by-step course. That's why I think it's easier said than done.
20:01:46 James Sigler -> Was that John or Dora talking? I was watching Dora
20:02:15 derrallg -> Are the students allowed to use a mouse with their left hand?
20:02:38 James Sigler -> Thanks for joining us Dora
20:02:43 PeggyG -> Dora has a great smile :-)
20:02:44 JenW -> that is funny
20:02:53 JenW -> but now will you be able to post this archive??
20:03:09 James Sigler -> lol
20:03:13 dora -> hola!
20:03:30 James Sigler -> como esta?
20:03:30 JenW -> wishing I had a video cam -- this could get FUN
20:04:31 James Sigler -> How fun it would be to have kids do a puppet play video conference
20:05:07 JohnS -> Posie's turn in the limelight, Dora.
20:05:12 mrsdurff -> got to go - nite all!
20:05:17 courosa -> gnite
20:05:40 JenW -> would it not be fun for each of us to assume an identity -- like the scarecrow from Wizard of Oz.... Superman,...... etc.....and let them speak for us in the mebeam screen
20:06:00 courosa -> woohoo soundslike a theme show
20:06:01 JenW -> I think I would like to be Elmo :)
20:06:18 dora -> i agree
20:06:21 PeggyG -> @JenW-sounds like second life to me :-)
20:06:40 JenW -> already got an alias for SL -- now I need a alias for ETT??
20:06:44 dora -> second face
20:07:03 PeggyG -> too many avatars and aliases to keep track of for me!
20:07:28 JenW -> even Dora's eyes are glazing over :)
20:07:31 Cathy E -> I'm with you Peggy - I can't keep everyone straight in real live
20:07:41 JenW -> CathyE - your home is okay??
20:07:45 PeggyG -> absolutely!!!
20:08:03 JenW -> is Dora losing it??
20:08:11 Cathy E -> @ Jen - yep- it has been blowing all weekend
20:08:21 James Sigler -> It's the Dora eye
20:08:22 JenW -> okay --
20:08:27 JenW -> wondered how your "pier" was
20:08:34 Cathy E -> still there
20:08:44 JenW -> Does dora ever close her mouth??
20:09:03 dora -> has anyone seen diego?
20:09:04 JenW -> first time seeing her
20:09:19 PeggyG -> Dora is just a happy girl :-)
20:09:30 JohnS -> Boots was here a little while ago, Dora. He was chasing Swiper.
20:09:32 dora -> or my backpack, backpack, backpack, backpack.
20:09:41 James Sigler -> That's why she can't talk. She can't close her mouth
20:09:59 dora -> swiper stop swiping
20:10:08 JohnS -> oh, man.
20:10:40 JenW -> OHNO
20:10:58 derrallg -> good night, time for dinner
20:10:58 courosa -> i think swiper gother
20:11:01 Gary -> My guess is that most of the people in this chat learned most of what they do on-line or with a computer by themselves
20:11:20 JenW -> I am self taught
20:11:22 Cathy E -> so tell me about mebeam
20:11:31 PeggyG -> @Gary-that's true for me-but lots of it was tutorials shared by my PLN
20:11:34 JenW -> okay 10% online learning
20:11:38 James Sigler -> I sure didn't learn it from a course
20:11:40 JL4 -> find out for yourself Cathy :)
20:11:45 JenW -> IE -- online class
20:11:53 courosa -> huge differences between doing this k-12 and uni
20:11:56 Cathy E -> I left myself open for that one
20:11:57 JenW -> the rest -- just playing around and also tutorials
20:12:17 Gary -> @ courosa - Yes
20:12:18 JenW -> Alec -- VERY VERY big difference
20:12:21 JL4 -> I just go to http://mebeam.com/edtechtalk  and watch the cams come on
20:12:28 JenW -> thanks Carla
20:12:34 courosa -> thanks carla
20:12:39 PeggyG -> Carla it was great hearing from you!
20:12:44 courosa -> dora says bye as well
20:13:04 James Sigler -> Bye Dora and Carla
20:13:10 JenW -> I taught online
20:13:15 JenW -> used a message board
20:13:18 carlaarena -> thanks for the great time together here
20:13:26 courosa -> so dave, what about rules of engagement in an open course? say ... handling trolls?
20:13:45 carlaarena -> c ya all!
20:13:51 James Sigler -> Much of my prof. edtech learning this year has been throught the ETT community
20:13:53 PeggyG -> ETT is much more open-ended that a course
20:13:57 carlaarena -> Jeff, seredinpity as always for us1
20:14:04 courosa -> haha
20:14:09 courosa -> maybe dora can tell you more
20:14:12 JenW -> yes, I want to know about the trolls
20:14:14 PeggyG -> Yes I want to hear about the trolls
20:14:38 JenW -> trip trap trip trap trip trap
20:14:43 PeggyG -> are trolls people who just play devil's advocate to stir the pot?
20:14:59 JenW -> that is one of the goats going over the trolls bridge :)
20:15:13 JenW -> please call ALEC
20:15:26 JenW -> what is the count for the Course right now
20:15:31 JenW -> have a lot of people dropped out??
20:15:41 courosa -> would love to talk about this some other time, didn't have headphones handy
20:15:45 James Sigler -> Open courses are not without police
20:16:05 JenW -> so -- can you type about trolls??
20:16:08 PeggyG -> I think a lot of people are reading and lurking as much as they can but not necessarily actively contributing--it's a lot to keep up with
20:16:10 courosa -> but i think there are important questions around the democratic processes in open courses.
20:16:10 James Sigler -> The people should police their own comunity
20:16:21 JenW -> NO -- not rules
20:16:23 JenW -> who posted it
20:16:32 JenW -> sighs --
20:16:46 James Sigler -> night
20:16:48 PeggyG -> thanks all!
20:16:53 PeggyG -> good night
20:16:58 JohnS -> Have a nice week, everyone
