Women of Web Show # 26, May 8, 2007

Join Jen, Vicki, Sharon and Cheryl as we chat with Cristin Frodella from Google. Learn about the new and exciting things happening with Google Educators. Also, you will be amazed at Dr. Cheri Toledo's class of doctoral students who had their final in the chat room. Over 43 participated in the chat room and 20 of them belonged to Cheri's class. It was a blast. The Women of Web 2.0 gave out A's for class participation.

Here is the chat. Please don't rely on the chat for the links, go to the wiki for Women of Web. I take out the time stamps in the chat, so some numbers may possibily be removed from a URL.

:"cheryloakes wow",it worked!"
:"mizmercer",Yeah, you have to put the link in word, or another wp, and drag and drop it into chat text "
:"cheryloakes wow",Let's add some color to the chat"
:"JenniferW",I agree"
::"John Pederson",http://climate.engin.umich.edu/TornadoPATHS"

::"sroseman",I am still on Tappedin"
:"JenniferW",the little pallette on the toolbar -- LEFT -- "
::"techguy",tapped in is great"
::"JenniferW",that is your color"
::"mizmercer",We looked at the Lewis and Clark map to start our unit"
::"techguy",google earth is great, but our school computers are too old to run it"
::"Vicki Davis",Soo Soo cool lit trips!"
::"cheryloakes wow",I was able to drag my URL to the chat, and it worked on my mac"
::"sharonp",As an English teacher, I think it rocks!"
::"Vicki Davis",Hey, if you're from Dr. Toledo's class give a shout!"
::"mizmercer",Yeah, you have to drag and drop cheryl"
::"colleen",Green for google earth"
::"jgarton",google earth uses too much bandwidth to have many users on one network using it simulatenously-a main concern at our schools"
::"cheryloakes wow",good idea colleen"
::"karla konieczki",Hello Vicki"
::"techguy",@jgarton: yep.....same issue here"
::"colleen",it didn't work:( "
::"Vicki Davis", in the chat room!"
::"Vicki Davis",Wow!"
::"KarenJanowski",I LOVE Google Docs"
::"cheryloakes wow",that is record,  yikes, I mean "
::"JenniferW",In an interview with John Battelle at the Web . Expo today, the Google CEO Eric Schmidt announced that a presentation application that is part of the Google Docs and Spreadsheets is forthcoming, completing the basic \"Office\" suite."
::"cheryloakes wow",WOW "
::"KarenJanowski",When it Google \"powerpoint\" coming out?"
::"jgarton",does anybody have any suggestions about how they use it without taxing the network?"
::"Vicki Davis",It meaning Google earth?"
::"sharonp",or google docs?"
::"jgarton",Yes, Google earth."
::"cheryloakes wow",We will ask the questions jgarton"
::"Vicki Davis",What is the throughput of Google earth -- is it found online?"
::"LML (the other Lisa)",Zoho works well for office apps"
::"Vicki Davis",Yes, we can ask it."
::"JulieS",Karen D- do you have any suggestions for using Google Earth in Health -related classes?"
::"Vicki Davis",I like Google Docs."
::"Vicki Davis",I used to use WRitely."
::"sharonp",I love love love google docs"
::"Karen D",I will have to think!!"
::"jgarton",Thanks so much. My network guys allow the site, but don't want me doing any workshops on it, yet."
::"Vicki Davis",Julie and I write our articles on it and it refreshes with both of us in."
::"cheryloakes wow",I use google docs and spreadsheets with my tech team at work, we share adding things to the information we collect"
::"Vicki Davis",jgarton -- I think it is a must use for geography teachers."
::"JenniferW",i LOVED the option to be able to change my presentations ANYWHERE -- at any conference --- ON any computer"
::"Vicki Davis",So, just have several places that it MUST be used."
::"sharonp",yes, multiple users can use google docs at once, right Vince?
::"JenniferW",especially -- if I forget my computer-- or it goes down"
::"Vicki Davis",If bandwidth is a concern."
::"Vicki Davis",YES!  multiple users in Google docs and it refreshes."
::"Vicki Davis",It just doesn't save edits like a wiki."
::"Vicki Davis",Or save discussions."
::"cheryloakes wow",Hello Kathy C."
::"JenniferW",Remember -- there is a  second delay in chat --"
::"dawn",Google docs are good for political science classes too."
::"KarenJanowski",Will Presently have the interactivity that is built into PowerPoint?"
::"Vicki Davis",Docs or Earth?"
::"sharonp",I like the comments functions"
::"JenniferW",it is funny to ready your ??? knowing that Cristin is answering the ??? you are asking"
::"Durff",the only thing that bugs me about Google docs is that i can't click on hyperlinks unless i go to the preview mode, which when quickly changing classrooms, is a real time waster"
::"mizmercer",If you are curious about Google Earth for educators: http://discoveryeducation.typepad.com/media_matters///google_earth_we_.h...
::"techguy",how do we convince our IT guys not to block google search, images, and picassa?"
::"techguy",the filtering is draconian"
::"Vicki Davis",I think if you hold down ctrl that the links work."
::"Durff",i will try that tonight\"
::"Vicki Davis",I'm not sure but I'm pretty sure. -- How is that for a political answer!"
::"sharonp",hey techguy, I am with you"
::"Durff",wonderful, for whom do you work?"
::"techguy",@sharon: thanks! it's frustrating isn't it?"
::"sharonp",ugh, yes"
::"KarenJanowski",I think every teacher must tell their students about Google Docs especially if they assign group projects"
::"sharonp",yes, Karen, I agree"
::"mizmercer",I'm trying to use Zoho, and I've used google sheet, and both hitch up and slow, and don't have the full formatting of a spreadsheet."
::"techguy",there is such a disconnect beteen the way kids use tech and the ways we are \"allowed\" to use it in the classroom"
::"cheryloakes wow",hello Valentine, welcome"
::"JenniferW",Karen -- especially when kids have various software options"
::"JenniferW",Yes -- MizMercer -- "
::"pruffing",is there anyway around having to have a gmail account to use these applications? thinking of elem students"
::"vincej",its about control"
::"JenniferW",I have found that to be true too"
::"Durff",amen vicki"
::"sharonp",yes, I have this struggle too, fortunately I have a pretty good IT director who does listen tome"
::"mizmercer",Thank you pruffing, yes"
::"Durff",one set for everything"
::"KarenJanowski",way too much going on in here tonight!"
::"sharonp",yes pruffing , my next question"
::"becky",Yes, I agree... the filters at schools are so frustrating"
::"sendkathy",I would like to know if there will be a schedule coming out with Google Educator Sessions around the country.  I'm in Atlanta and I like to plan ahead!"
::"Vicki Davis",Oh, karen it is May -- we're all hyper, huh?"
::"JenniferW",Kathy -- She will get to that soon"
::"jgarton",setting up student accounts for those without emails: I would like options to do with this
::"KarenJanowski",Vicki, lol"
::"LML (the other Lisa)",I want a session like this for every application I use! :-)"
::"JenniferW",I promise!!!"
::"Durff",share that schedule if you find it kathy"
::"techguy",anything going on with GTA @ NECC?"
::"sendkathy",good question"
::"JenniferW",Tech Guy"
::"Durff",LML is the real Lisa, not the other one"
::"JenniferW",YES -- they will be presenting TWO SESSIONS"
::"cristin",we will be holdign sessions on our tools in our booht at NECC"
::"LML (the other Lisa)",:D Very funny, Durff, you are the original!"
::"sendkathy",two workshops or regular free sessions?"
::"JenniferW",They are going to have an area BIG AREA"
::"Durff",thank you"
::"cristin",in our \"teaching theatre\""
::"JenniferW",like the APPLE AREA"
::"Vicki Davis",WE're keeping a list of all of these questions!"
::"techguy",cool. are there workshop sections too?"
::"cristin",free workshops"
::"Vicki Davis",Tech Guy yours is on the list too!"
::"becky",I've been working on getting a collaborative tool for my school, too"
::"JenniferW",Sorry -- I am confused with Tapped IN"
::"cristin",taught by our Google Certified Teachers"
::"JenniferW",THEY ARE having  sessions"
::"Vicki Davis",I'm getting whiplash!"
::"jgarton",Oh yes. My hardware guys told me yesterday they will probably start blocking gmail. :{ "
::"dea",Showing my ignorance, not a problem for me, I didn't know Google had all of these products"
::"cristin",that stinks"
::"cristin",sorry to hear that"
::"mizmercer",Okay, this is KEY in elementary. Last I heard I CANNOT sign my kids up for email."
::"JenniferW",No worries DEA"
::"pruffing",yes, please find a way...we NEED it"
::"JenniferW",that is why we are bringing it up"
::"Vicki Davis",GMAIL!?  BLOCKING GMAIL?"
::"Durff",talk about speed reading"
::"LML (the other Lisa)",hard to believe they are limiting email!"
::"Vicki Davis",jgarton -- that is nutso -- it has the best filter and you can send hugely large files."
::"grahamwegner",Could I ask via this chat _ what will Google Educators do for countries outside of North America?"
::"jgarton",Yes, blocking gmail website. So sad."
::"sendkathy",Special educator gmail accounts?"
::"becky",Our students cannot access e-mail, either"
::"Vicki Davis",I'm switching our school to hosting."
::"Vicki Davis",by gmail."
::"mizmercer",They tried to block gmail in my district, and the high school teachers said, HEY we signed them up for those accounts"
::"LML (the other Lisa)",no email? how can you do ANYTHING without email????"
::"Vicki Davis",It is insane What the blocking is."
::"grahamwegner",If that fits the discussion..."
::"jgarton",Too many holes they tell me, security."
::"sroseman",Jennifer, David will have a face to face session with a group of attendees at NECC ..and jeff will be virtually coordinating from his end at Tappedin, JenW"
::"mizmercer",I  don't want my kids with email, because I have kids who can't keep track of their house keys, so I don't think they could keep track of their email logins."
::"John Pederson",i have one school that blocks *all* of google...when asked \"the kids could get anywhere\""
::"LML (the other Lisa)",same old thing -- security vs freedom (our country, our schools...sheesh)"
::"becky",I'm working on changing that, but mostly we use technology for playing games, typing and testing"
::"jgarton",we have a district email system, not web-based, which I like to pull in through google
::"Durff",i'm so lucky. i'm in private school = no blocking, just no downloading by me"
::"mizmercer",we once had some bandwith issues with google earth"
::"JenniferW", in chatroom"
::"pruffing",question regarding Google Earth images.. how can we petition for updated images...the area where our school is    is in a total blur...very disappointing for projects"
::"Durff",? wow"
::"dea",I can't even get email to go through the email accounts from the actual web pages of schools to teachers or administrators, mostly running from outlook. They go to Junk or get Spammed."
::"KarenJanowski",are there some cool ways that Google calendar can be used at school?"
::"CheriT",Larry, what do they block in your district?"
::"sendkathy",a record?"
::"JulieS",Durff, I agree- I teach at the university level, and I feel lucky that not much of this is blocked."
::"CheriT",any of these?"
::"Durff",i think it must be"
::"JenniferW",you can join a group for educators -- http://groups.google.com/group/google-for-educators"
::"JenniferW",LOL -- another group -- but a good one"
::"techguy",the irony is that most the kids have a mobile phone w/web access"
::"sharonp",I like Google Calendar - have it built into my blog"
::"JenniferW",and Cristin found the Google Earth help there"
::"Durff",i find my community is afraid of it (googleearth)"
::"JenniferW",the Google Academy Teachers group"
::"karla konieczki",all outside e-mails are blocked in our districit as well."
::"sroseman",I love google maps for driving directions"
::"becky",thanks jennifer, i'll try that site from school..."
::"JenniferW",but no worries -- I will share with you"
::"cheryloakes wow",jgarton, get ready for the answer about google earth and caching"
::"becky",teachers can access e-mails, but not students"
::"Larry.Carlton",Presently have bandwidth problems - Banning e-mail"
::"mizmercer",Next year, all our students (even elementary) are going to have seperate logins"
::"LML (the other Lisa)",if all outside email is blocked, it isn't email -- doesn't it become intranet messaging instead?"
::"jgarton",thanks so much for asking my question. increase disk cache size to control bandwidth usage AWESOME I can't wait. So helpful :) :D "
::"mizmercer",instead of classwide login"
::"JenniferW",open group"
::"jeff",When will GoogleTalk support conference calls?"
::"dawn",I think much of the blocking has to do more with the programs that schools use rather than anything else"
::"sendkathy",Can we become google certified teachers online?"
::"mizmercer",good question Kathy"
::"JenniferW",Kathy -- grins -- "
::"JenniferW",I am asking that NEXT"
::"JenniferW",LOL -- don't you know that you will be there with me virtually"
::"JenniferW",YEP -- If Jen knows -- Jen Shares"
::"techguy",why do we need to be certified?"
::"sendkathy",because it makes us sound cooler!"
::"dea",I've been reading through the google docs and available help services...how could I not have known?! Can't wait to share this with my teachers."
::"Durff",btw, sound is awesomely great"
::"JenniferW",It's another great image on my website"
::"jgarton",I want to be cooler.:) "
::"JenniferW",I like images  :)"
::"sharonp",Dea, they are really awesome"
::"cheryloakes wow",thanks Durff for the sound check it helps me."
::"mizmercer",Teacher Tube is not working in edublogs unfortunately"
::"KarenJanowski",education section will be great!"
::"becky",OH, I hope the do start an education section!!!"
::"Durff",i can't enlarge the teacher tube when showing to kids, youtube has a button to enlarge to the whole screen...."
::"Vicki Davis", in chat!  WOW!"
::"pruffing",I can't afford to go anywhere for conferences and certification...I need online everything!!"
::"karla konieczki",That woudl be great to have a teacher section"
::"JenniferW",KATHY -- for you -- Google Academy INFORMATION"
::"Durff",so when do you all go on tour?"
::"JenniferW",and GRAHAM -- For you TOO!!"
::"Kathy Clesson",Where is it?"
::"JenniferW",and for everyone else  :)"
::"Simon",Are you \"juiced\" Vicki?!?!?!"
::"Vicki Davis",Why do you say that?"

::"sendkathy",I just do it anyway"
::"pruffing",I set up a yackpack acct but didn't make contact with anyone yet"
::"jgarton",read about yackpack, but not tried it yet: techguy"
::"mizmercer",Anything streaming seems to be blocked at work. They are concerned about \"bandwidth\""
::"Valentine Walker",Finally, I am listening under Internet explorer and chatting in Firefox. Thanks colleen"
::"techguy",it's fantastic. we integrated it w/ our Moodle"
::"jgarton",streaming and bandwidth go together"
::"CheriT",Yea, Val"
::"mizmercer",We can go to npr.com, but can't stream"
::"cristin",yep - no more \"froogle\""
::"Valentine Walker",Talk about a tech nightmare"
::"colleen",Yeah, Vallol "
::"Durff",yackpack is cool"
::"Durff",i have one on my blog"
::"Valentine Walker",Interesting chat so far. This is truly a fast pace culture"
::"colleen",i keep trying to use the colors and the icons but i just keep mispelling everything"
::"cheryloakes wow",Valentine, you are doing  a great job keeping up."
::"Valentine Walker",thanks"
::"cheryloakes wow",colleen, we don't worry about that"
::"JenniferW",this is a GREAT CHAT"
::"JenniferW",thanks everyone so much"
::"techguy",i heard the creator of yackpack (he's another stanford wiz) talk...he's a teacher educator so he knows what it's like in the classroom"
::"JenniferW",last  minutes -- ANY QUESTIONS"
::"Larry.Carlton",Colleen, keep typing. dont worry about it"
::"sendkathy",intrinsic motivation"
::"mizmercer",pool time, see ya next week"
::"jgarton",I will spend some time checking out yakpak, if an educator developed it."
::"sharonp",questioning is a sign of critical thinking"
::"pruffing",mine wasn't answered...updates of satellite images on google earth?"
::"Kathy Clesson",Pool time??"
::"JenniferW",I shall ask that"
::"Durff",it's on my blog"
::"Durff",all are welcome to yack"
::"colleen",good-i hope it won't impact my grade!"
::"Larry.Carlton", Students should question everything. they need to take control of their studies"
::"CheriT",what grade?"
::"Durff",yes they do"
::"sroseman",heard some chatter about googleearth and SecondLife"
::"cristin",agree larry"
::"Durff",but will they"
::"karla konieczki",your right Larry students do need to learn to question"
::"Durff",googleearth is SL?"
::"becky",yes, larry... but will we label that as disrespect?"
::"colleen",Larry, that attitude scares a lot of teachers, especially secondary ed"
::"Vicki Davis",Yes, learning to question is important."
::"Kathy Clesson",The Google Effect .... I like that!"
::"JulieS",Larry, and by questioning everything- it's not questioning \"what do we need to know for the test?\" That's my least favorite question!"
::"Vicki Davis",One can question with respect."
::"karla konieczki",I think they will Durff if they are given the opportunity"
::"Larry.Carlton",  No its leadership"
::"Vicki Davis",Backtalk is sarcasm without respect -- big difference."
::"Vicki Davis",Questioning is part of being an effective citizen of life."
::"JenniferW",GOOGLE EARTH ???? being answered NOW"
::"pruffing",GE...Google Earth...brings good things to light"
::"pruffing",or is it life?"
::"becky",Vicki, i agree, not sure all teachers would"
::"Vicki Davis",The good teachers I know appreciate questioning."
::"Larry.Carlton", Amen"
::"JenniferW",where would we find those overlays??"
::"Vicki Davis",of course there are some limits (like questions must be relevant)"
::"Vicki Davis",some kids try to get off track as a delay tactic."
::"sharonp",I like questions and hope I am a teacher that listens to the questions"
::"techguy",nothing wrong with questioning, it depends on the context"
::"JenniferW",LEFT HAND SIDE -- Under Layers"
::"Vicki Davis",However relevant questions with meaning are important."
::"techguy",not what you say, it's how you say it, right?"
::"Vicki Davis",Questioning is harder than answering very often."
::"JenniferW",and does Google have a SECOND LIFE???"
::"Vicki Davis",I teach socratically so we live questions."
::"CheriT",My house is not on GE - it's been here about  / years"
::"Vicki Davis",AND I LOVE IT when they pose the questions to me."
::"Simon",Is there a way to hide the notes (not sure what they're called) on Google Earth?"
::"Vicki Davis",to teach me -- and we all say \"Ah ha!\"  and I say wow when they teach me!"
::"becky",vicki, i'd love to be in your class!"
::"Valentine Walker",My students like to google earth so I incorporated it an urbanization project in an environmental science project. Some were very interested in this."
::"techguy",yep. love to see that cognitive bandiwidth "
::"pruffing",you can turn off stuff in the layers section"
::"Kathy Clesson",There be monsters ..."
::"dea",Once kids learn how to question, they come up with wonderments beyond what I often would have asked."
::"LML (the other Lisa)",as easy as making a what file?"
::"cheryloakes wow",i like that cognitive bandwidth"
::"sharonp",cognitive bandwidth.... love that term"
::"Kathy Clesson",sweet!"
::"jgarton",cognitive bandwith, how many blog posts about that tomorrow?"
::"sendkathy",the medici effect (book) has some interesting things to say about unexpected innovation."
::"mmiller",You need to have a WOW . term wiki with all these neat terms everyone comes up with on Tuesdays!"
::"Durff",oh the wrinkles"
::"Larry.Carlton",good idea"
::"becky",Oh, yes... kids can really pose some great questions.  I think some teachers are afraid they won't have the answers."
::"Kathy Clesson",I second the motion!"
::"cheryloakes wow",that is a great idea mmiller, we have had some great vocabulary come out of these chats"
::"cheryloakes wow",Dr. Cheri
::"Kathy Clesson",Educator Island??"
