18:52:56 JenM -> Hi! John!!
18:54:51 JohnSchinker -> -EVO 2007: Hey guys -- which chat room?
18:57:14 alicemercer -> How do you "paste" into this chat room?
18:57:36 JenniferW -> it helps if you detach your chat before you cut and paste
18:58:01 alicemercer -> Detach? You mean leave?
18:58:23 JenniferW -> I missed you so
18:58:25 alicemercer -> Howdy
18:58:37 JenniferW -> NO -- the icon to detach is 3 from the right
18:58:48 JenniferW -> forgot how to live a 40 hour work week!!!
18:59:09 JenM -> hi dave
18:59:11 alicemercer -> Woops
18:59:23 JenniferW -> my daytona guy is #4 -- so I shall stay muted so you don't hear my cheers or my sighs
18:59:39 JenniferW -> meaning 4th place
18:59:52 dave -> ya
18:59:56 dave -> yoyo
19:00:22 alicemercer -> Okay, I'm dialing skypecast now
19:00:30 JenniferW -> I am in skypecast
19:00:52 JenniferW -> cool
19:01:07 JenniferW -> I am in skypecast -- but not showing :)
19:03:32 JenniferW -> we are muted right??? so I can type
19:03:38 jeff -> yes
19:03:41 JenniferW -> thanks
19:05:12 JohnSchinker -> If somebody's going to use the Jeff Han link, there's a direct link to the TED Talks: http://www.ted.com/tedtalks/
19:05:23 alicemercer -> Yeah, I was going to share that
19:05:31 alicemercer -> Other Ted talks, which are awesome
19:05:51 JohnSchinker -> I just heard about them on Friday, and have watched several already
19:06:04 JohnSchinker -> Very neat.
19:06:04 alicemercer -> Hans Rosling is still my favorite!
19:06:14 JenM -> http://del.icio.us/edtechtalk/20070218 here are our links for tonight
19:06:46 JenM -> if you want to share links with us tag them "for:edtechtalk"
19:07:12 alicemercer -> Hey I can't paste even though I detached, argh!
19:08:12 alicemercer -> Okay, Now I'm messed up, I closed window. I'm hopeless tonight.
19:08:58 JohnSchinker -> Alice... are you looking for a show *about* training teachers, or one that actually does it?
19:09:09 alicemercer -> About
19:09:21 alicemercer -> Cause that's what I get to do this summer.
19:09:34 alicemercer -> Adults much harder to "train" than the kids, imho
19:09:56 JohnSchinker -> Ahh... That would be useful. But I keep thinking that there are some podcasts that would make decent courses (security now, for example). If that model could be used to deliver PD, ....
19:10:20 JohnSchinker -> Adults are a lot harder -- they're much less patient. If you don't exactly hit their level, you lose them.
19:10:36 alicemercer -> Yep, I'm supposed to teach them HOW to make their own podcasts.
19:10:53 alicemercer -> Based on a tech class I took this summer, you have ALL levels sometimes.
19:11:09 JohnSchinker -> Do they already see the need for podcasts, or do you have to sell the concept first?
19:11:32 alicemercer -> Well, hopefully, since this is a "voluntary" course.
19:11:38 JohnSchinker -> :-)
19:11:57 alicemercer -> But you never know. I may try to pair experienced tech, with unexperienced in the seating?
19:12:06 JohnSchinker -> blech.
19:12:09 alicemercer -> If I get a group that is mixed.
19:12:21 JohnSchinker -> As an experienced tech, I get really annoyed when people do that.
19:12:27 JenM -> http://www.simteach.com/wiki/index.php?title=Second_Life_Education_Wiki
19:12:28 JohnSchinker -> It ends up wasting my time.
19:12:58 JenniferW -> I just found them last night when I was stumbling
19:13:03 JenniferW -> stumble upon
19:13:08 JohnSchinker -> Teach to the lower level, but allow the higher level to go off on their own and take it further or faster
19:13:10 alicemercer -> Yeah, I always LIKE doing that myself, since I"m usually guarenteed to be one of the more experienced users. in a training.
19:13:28 alicemercer -> Yeah, I would like the higher folks to share some of their experience, apps, etc.
19:14:20 JohnSchinker -> Wikipedia? They shouldn't cite my blog either. There are lots of dubious sites online :-)
19:14:20 alicemercer -> Cite, is where you have support for information, not where you have been.
19:15:02 alicemercer -> I agree with not using wiki as a source for history classes at college level.
19:15:15 alicemercer -> As a former history major.
19:15:49 JohnSchinker -> http://www.computerworld.com/blogs/node/4598
19:15:53 alicemercer -> They still let students access wiki, etc.
19:16:00 JohnSchinker -> Middlebury isn't alone
19:16:20 alicemercer -> Well, I was told NEVER to cite a encyclopedia when I was a history major.
19:16:39 JohnSchinker -> No one at the undergrad level should be citing an encyclopedia
19:16:52 alicemercer -> I don't think that's true.
19:17:00 alicemercer -> Studies are published on web, so you could cite those
19:17:21 JohnSchinker -> Right. Are you disagreeing with me or Dave?
19:17:23 alicemercer -> High school should transition OUT of wiki and encyclopedia.
19:17:24 jeff -> http://www.wired.com/news/technology/0,72743-0.html?tw=wn_index_18
19:17:36 alicemercer -> Oh probably everyone, lol!
19:17:57 jeff -> http://techpresident.com/
19:18:02 alicemercer -> I have my kids using wiki and web, but also starting with primary in elementary.
19:18:28 JenniferW -> Our John Edwards????
19:18:34 JenM -> http://www.go2web20.net/
19:18:35 JenniferW -> truly -- I am impressed a bit
19:18:57 jeff -> http://blogs.zdnet.com/social/?p=91
19:19:05 JohnSchinker -> Good job, Jen. Thanks for saying the web site.
19:19:10 dave -> latest post on my blog for more on my feelings about academic writing
19:19:23 alicemercer -> There is a VERY interesting blogginheads, with a discussion of the Marchotte
19:19:25 dave -> http://edubuntu.org
19:19:39 alicemercer -> Dave, I'll have to check it out, lol!
19:20:56 alicemercer -> http://bloggingheads.tv/video.php?id=203&cid=1023
19:21:05 JenniferW -> so has John Edwards really been there?? or is just using this arena as another way to publicize???
19:21:14 jeff -> http://www.sundayherald.com/news/heraldnews/display.var.1185401.0.0.php
19:21:23 alicemercer -> He hasn't at all
19:21:47 alicemercer -> If what happened with Marcotte is any indication
19:21:49 JenniferW -> so it is just publicity that he really won't know anything about
19:21:52 JenM -> http://www.whitemountaintech.net/wordpress/2007/02/17/senate-bill-49-pro...
19:22:46 alicemercer -> bloggingheads = these candidates and their experts have NO idea about bloggers, and don't know what they are doing.
19:22:57 JenniferW -> yup
19:23:04 JenniferW -> sound techie but no clue
19:23:59 Cathye -> Locking them up til 18 is a good idea (from a parent of a 16 year old)
19:24:03 alicemercer -> I still can't paste, darn it.
19:24:15 alicemercer -> They frown on that Cathy.
19:24:26 jeff -> http://www.filehippo.com/
