21:35:40 tkidd132 -: @hockeymom--Hola
21:35:41 sendkathy -: Nicole, very curious, wondering about filtering and restrictions. Are there any limits on website use and how have you defined them?
21:35:47 shoemap -: @DougS good questions
21:36:04 JenW -: I have given sharon your question -- DOUG and COLLEEN
21:36:07 Art Gelwicks -: Good question...what is the lifespan of those achievements? What is the cost of maintaining students at that level?
21:36:19 Vicki Davis -: OK, so I'm writing this down for the chat -- she says that at the beginning of the 6th grade year only 4% (100-96%) had literacy skills equal to those of those in silicon valley. At the end of the 6th grade year 75% of the 6th graders had literacy skills EXCEEEDING those of the students in silicon valley. The study will be widely reported in the next 2-3 months.
21:36:26 JenW -: and ART

21:36:39 Art Gelwicks -: (JenW rocks)

21:37:40 tkidd132 -: @Viki Davis-- Whats your Skype account
21:37:45 Durff graduate of 2017 -: i wonder if they had such an increase in literacy because of the intervention or would it have happened anyway? Can they seperate it out?

21:43:07 DougS -: pleasure
21:43:18 tkidd132 -: yes i heard the same
21:43:21 sendkathy -: Not too many too squishy
21:43:26 euphoniac -: Music has 9
21:43:28 Allanah -: that's better- I now have audio
21:43:33 Durff graduate of 2017 -: euphonic = i think they said squishy
21:43:34 PeggyG -: Lost my iTunes sound and had to go to RealPlayer :-(
21:43:36 tkidd132 -: Great!!
21:43:44 JenW -: I think VAGUE is a good description too -- but that means you can adapt
21:43:44 euphoniac -: what does that mean... squishy?
21:43:49 tkidd132 -: Mine sound is off and on
21:43:50 jepcke -: my new favorite adjective 'squishy'
21:43:58 tkidd132 -: crazy :(
21:43:58 Durff graduate of 2017 -: who knows
21:44:06 JenW -: But very hard for those of us who like ABSOLUTES
21:44:08 mrlembke -: I had to restart iTunes about 10 minutes ago.
21:44:09 sendkathy -: exactly!
21:44:14 PeggyG -: Glad it's not just me-don't want to miss anything!
21:44:30 Durff graduate of 2017 -: kidd - my sound is good, strong, steady
21:44:36 Art Gelwicks -: Are we setting their expectations too high? They leave the shelter of the technically capable school to the technically inferior real world and get digital culture shock?
21:44:38 murcha -: sorry my audio has cut out again
21:44:44 jomcleay -: I have good sound right now
21:44:45 JenW -: Colleen -- here comes your question

21:45:21 Durff graduate of 2017 -: anytime kidd
21:45:23 tkidd132 -: Yes How So?

21:45:55 Vicki Davis -: OK, I'm going to put in the notes that Nichole just shared that I think are so important.
21:45:56 PeggyG -: Do you consider Scratch a social networking tool?
21:45:58 tkidd132 -: I need The Deilicious Links
21:45:59 Durff graduate of 2017 -: Art I think the so called real world and work world is far more into Web2.0 than schools are
21:46:09 Vicki Davis -: The kids are fluent in digital media but that doesn't define who they are.
21:46:09 derrallg -: I've used stagecast creator but I think scratch is easier
21:46:10 emapey -: I use Winamp. Sound is great
21:46:17 ssandifer -: It is Durff

21:46:53 Art Gelwicks -: I'd be very inclined to disagree with you. Working in the "real world" as I do it's no further ahead then most schools.
21:46:58 JenW -: Welcome Kern!!!
21:47:04 Vicki Davis -: What are your favorite things she is saying? I love what she says "college for every kid." It is not about vocational digital natives it is about digitally literate professionals! (paraphrase.)
21:47:09 Kern -: Hi Jen :)
21:47:15 cheryloakes wow2 -: Hi Kern, welcome.
21:47:18 derrallg -: @Jenw there's also a CUE educator that does a lot with stagecast
21:47:23 ssandifer -: Art, in what field do you work?
21:47:26 tkidd132 -: Hi Kern
21:47:27 mrlembke -: @Vicki Davis EXACTLY
21:47:31 Kern -: Hi all
21:47:33 Durff graduate of 2017 -: is stagecast a download?
21:47:36 tkidd132 -: hello\
21:47:48 derrallg -: @durff no it costs money :(
21:47:55 jepcke -: http://www.stagecast.com/
21:47:56 Art Gelwicks -: Information Analyst for a Fortune 1000 manufacturing company.
21:48:02 Vicki Davis -: I also love what she talked about 21st Century Rennaisance learners -- visual, graphic, oral, interactive and also that they are critics of media.
21:48:03 Durff graduate of 2017 -: yes derrall, but is it a download
21:48:13 Art Gelwicks -: And as Director of Technology for a private school.
21:48:21 jomcleay -: @Vicki that is so true
21:48:24 Allanah -: Sorry- real life visitors just rrived- bye
21:48:30 Durff graduate of 2017 -: bye
21:48:31 derrallg -: @durff i think only the player is
21:48:34 jomcleay -: bye Allanah
21:48:49 JenW -: Welcome Linda
21:48:54 Durff graduate of 2017 -: i wonder if i could put it on a flashdrive?
21:48:55 sharonp -: I want to go back and listen to this again.... she is soooo articulate
21:48:57 Art Gelwicks -: Teaching students to be adaptable regardless of platform/software makes their skills much more marketable.
21:49:10 emapey -: @tkidd132 only 1 bookmark in your del.icio.us ???
21:49:20 ssandifer -: "adaptable" -- I agree Art
21:49:32 Durff graduate of 2017 -: Gamemaker?
21:49:38 Vicki Davis -: @sharonp - I'm going to send this to our curriculum director. This is so important to listen to.
21:49:40 Linda N -: Thanks, Been listening but also working-
21:49:45 PeggyG -: so many schools have second life blocked--any idea how many teens are actually using second life?
21:49:52 Art Gelwicks -: There are far too many "one trick ponies" in the technology world.
21:50:10 JenW -: Art -- "one trick ponie"
21:50:14 Vicki Davis -: @PeggyG There are good things about SL, however, I don't recommend the general teen grid, there are some issues we had with it with the horizon project this past spring.
21:50:23 JenW -: @Art -- explain??
21:50:35 JenW -: Welcome GaryM
21:50:45 Vicki Davis -: @Art - It is about being comfortable, fluent, and able to learn new things without having to have the teacher teach everything point and click.
21:50:57 tkidd132 -: @emapey-- I just got it today i will have some more this week
21:51:10 Vicki Davis -: OK, everyone, remember ISTE nominations are due by the 18th!!! We need some good international awards to be in there.
21:51:11 ssandifer -: self-directed learners
21:51:13 tkidd132 -: I can see the bookmarks btw
21:51:21 Art Gelwicks -: Technology specialists who don't develop the diversity of skills necessary to be successful. @Vicki - it's more than that. They need to be able to swim on their own no matter the water.
21:51:34 jomcleay -: Hi Mary from a fewllow intern of class 2.4
21:51:44 tkidd132 -: @Art I agree....
21:51:45 Vicki Davis -: @Art -- Yes -- self directed self motivated learners.
21:51:54 Vicki Davis -: Oh, how to find the time!!!
21:51:55 tkidd132 -: Yes...
21:51:58 sharonp -: I agree, Vicki, we want to get to a place where the technology is invisible and ubiquitous and we just get in there and do great stuff on a different level than what we have done before - with confident learners
21:52:08 Durff graduate of 2017 -: http://www.yoyogames.com/gamemaker
21:52:11 tkidd132 -: I can see any bookmarks for WOW2.0
21:52:14 Vicki Davis -: There are so many things I need to do with my students but I really wish that they could come to me with that sort of fluency.
21:52:18 Durff graduate of 2017 -: Any opinions?
21:52:20 Vicki Davis -: @tkidd132 - just a moment.
21:52:27 Art Gelwicks -: Statistics show more than 50% of IT projects fail. The key cause of these failures is the poor/inadequate communication of requirements.
21:52:31 PeggyG -: @speters--you don't ask for much :-) I agree!
21:52:36 tkidd132 -: @viki Davis-- ok
21:52:46 ssandifer -: Art -- you made me thinkof some IT ppl that I've known in the past who thought of their outdated skills as "job security" instead of as deficits
21:52:48 Durff graduate of 2017 -: Art the nay sayer
21:52:49 Vicki Davis -: We have 92 links here - http://del.icio.us/WOW2.0 However, the show delicious may take a whilte to show.
21:52:53 vinnievrotny -: great show. got to go. Thanks
21:52:58 Vicki Davis -: @vinnie - Bye.
21:53:01 Durff graduate of 2017 -: bye vinnie
21:53:16 Matt Montagne -: hey vinnie
21:53:21 Matt Montagne -: bye vinnie
21:53:23 shoemap -: Mary open up audio in new window
21:53:33 Art Gelwicks -: @ssandifer - In some cases it is job security when the demand outstrips the supply (Cobol, old 4GL languages, mainframe support, etc.)
21:53:36 cheryloakes wow2 -: there are so many great links from tonight
21:53:37 mary -: hi
21:53:39 sharonp -: @art scaffolding the learning process is so impt for IT projecgts but they also have to be grounded in authentic learning situations (imho)
21:53:42 mary -: now i have audio
21:53:47 JenW -: The links tonight are FANTASTIC
21:53:50 shoemap -: Great, Mary
21:53:59 DougS -: @Art--I think it amounts to a form/type of literacy--the "workaround" and the "attack skills" needed to stick it out to "solution"
21:54:04 derrallg -: @mary hi hang in there
21:54:13 jomcleay -: tHAT'S GREAT mARY
21:54:17 mrlembke -: I do Lego Mindstorms with my 7th graders, and they love it.
21:54:20 tkidd132 -: @Viki Davis--Thank You very Much
21:54:24 sendkathy -: programming is a tool in design
21:54:27 emapey -: @tkidd132 check emapey and fceblog del.icio.us network
21:54:54 tkidd132 -: @emapey ok i will
21:54:54 Art Gelwicks -: @sharonp You put someone across the interview table from me who can talk to me about "communicating online effectively" rather than "excellent in Word and Excel" and I'll show you a new hire.
21:54:55 stevesoko -: Just talked a teacher into Lego Mindstorms today
21:54:58 jomcleay -: @tkidd32 check rubyfire in delicious That's me!
21:55:04 Helen -: Thanks all - running off to make an appointment now!
21:55:11 Linda N -: i have fifth graders who do Mindstorms and I can't keep them away from playing- oops I mean learning.
21:55:27 ssandifer -: Art -- how about communicate ANYWHERE effectively?
21:55:30 mrlembke -: @ Linda N I know what you mean
21:55:32 Kern -: we've used mindstorms and Pico Crickets
21:55:46 Art Gelwicks -: @ssandifer - Let's not ask for miracles now.
21:55:48 tkidd132 -: @jomcleay ok i will
21:55:51 cheryloakes wow2 -: what grade level for pico crickets?

21:56:38 shoemap -: @Art did you see the new hire interview questions by Jeff Utecht?
21:56:39 susanvg -: I used precursors to pico crickets with grade 5 & 6

21:56:43 cheryloakes wow2 -: Remember that the audio will be a podcast and the chat will be posted by Thurs. at www..com/womenofweb2.0
21:56:44 Art Gelwicks -: It's more that just technology people though. Send me a marketing person who gets what a wiki is capable of and has learned to be creative with the tool and that person has no choice but to be successful.
21:56:46 ssandifer -: But -- seriously -- communication in any medium, including face-to-face, is key to success in any field
21:56:48 JenW -: Hmmm

21:57:19 JenW -: and who is going to ILLINOIS??

21:59:08 tkidd132 -: Would love to be there...Where is it?
21:59:09 JenW -: I agree Art -- but I do like my Mac book so much -- but I like my PC too
21:59:22 mrlembke -: @Art I am going to tell my IT person that tomorrow!
21:59:23 ssandifer -: @JenW :)
