Also, can't we chat right over in the ustream app? Please... [14:11] <Guest26399> Sarah: Audio yet? [14:12] <matt____> no audio from ustream [14:12] <arvindg> checking audio, sorry! [14:12] <matt____> it looks like the ustream window is broadcasting, but no audio is playing currently [14:12] == matt____ [i=43797419@gateway/web/freenode/x-wowcczkazntmcwoq] has quit [Client Quit] [14:12] <arvindg> we'll start over, we were just practicing :) We had changed some settings for our conversation last week, switching back over now. Whoops! [14:13] <arvindg> don't you love it when tech directors switch up [14:13] <arvindg> and need helkp [14:13] == montagne [i=43797419@gateway/web/freenode/x-bnnvupncovzpoqwf] has joined #edtechtalk [14:13] <alex____> testing. [14:13] <jramsden> Good hear! [14:13] <Guest26399> yay! [14:13] <montagne> sounds good [14:13] <jramsden> BTW..pun intended. [14:14] <Guest60772> ah , good [14:14] <alex____> love the puns! [14:15] <montagne> how was mike wesch?? [14:15] <jramsden> If you've not attended NEIT you HAVE to go. I went back when it was just the NYSAIS Tech Director's meeting and it has just exploded. Wish I could get back to Mohonk! [14:15] <arvindg> Wesch was amazing [14:15] <arvindg> check out the wiki, all presentations up there: http://neit.wikispaces.com [14:16] <montagne> thanks for all the streaming as well... [14:16] == plennig [i=a9f48f77@gateway/web/freenode/x-felzrkdwrvebedlu] has joined #edtechtalk [14:17] <jramsden> Anyone want to switch to the USTREAM chat interface...a lot less old school. [14:18] <montagne> sounds like a great format... [14:18] <Guest26399> Sarah: @Jason-I went in there, all by myself. [14:19] <arvindg> what are the best conferences you've ever been to? What makes them great? [14:19] <montagne> were there any school administrators in attendance?? [14:19] <montagne> and if so, what did the administrators say about the format of the open space?? [14:21] <arvindg> no school admins (except for library/tech directors) for the most part, but we've done open space with division heads/assistant heads last year (for part of their conference) [14:21] <arvindg> their response was very positive [14:21] <montagne> nice [14:21] <Guest26399> @jramsden see, lots of people use the B when speaking of Liz! [14:22] <montagne> It would be nice if your open space model could be used as the model for school meetings [14:22] <jramsden> @sarah: LOL! I was just thinking the same thing! [14:22] <jramsden> @matt: keep going with that open space idea for school meetings - thoughts how it could look? [14:23] <montagne> @jramsden...not sure how it might look, but it could help us break out of our departmental models... [14:24] <montagne> @jramsden...for the model to proliferate, admins will need to be aware of the benefits of it. [14:24] <montagne> Etherpad is pretty cool [14:24] == dsmith [i=a8d77bc8@gateway/web/freenode/x-tjepbljuujzdcmpb] has joined #edtechtalk [14:24] <arvindg> http://etherpad.com was used for collaborative notes during sessions - it was amazing! [14:24] <jramsden> @matt - agreed. [14:25] <montagne> etherpad's pricing model is quite odd...but their freebie is great [14:25] <Guest26399> Sarah: We've been using the free version of etherpad in classes [14:26] <arvindg> Michael Wesch was our closing speaker. O.M.G. wow. [14:27] <montagne> Wesch's presentations are incredible...amazing how he uses short little video snippets [14:27] <alex____> FLICKR: http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=neit2009&w=all [14:28] <Guest26399> Sarah: I loved every minute of Wesch's talk that I caught while doing a million other things. I've changed my teaching based on what I've learned listening to him. [14:28] <montagne> he was there for three hours?? Wow [14:29] <arvindg> keynotes here: http://neit.wikispaces.com/NEIt2009-2009+Keynotes+and+Session+Videos [14:30] <arvindg> notes from all of the open space sessions here: http://neit.wikispaces.com/Open+Space+Sessions [14:30] <montagne> I like his "A New Future of Whatever" talk [14:31] <montagne> wikis are great for bringing it all together...
