 19:52:45  Kern EdTechTalk: Who's chat moderator tonight?
 19:53:14  PeggyG EdTechTalk: do you have the links for today?
 19:53:20  cheryloakes webcaster grad EdTechTalk: I am trying to moderate and stream.
 19:53:36  PeggyG EdTechTalk: can we view panwapa without the audio running? can't find a way to turn it off

 19:54:31  alicebarr EdTechTalk:
 19:54:43  PeggyG EdTechTalk: I want to hear about Sesame Street visit! Have never been there
 19:55:01  alicebarr EdTechTalk:
 19:55:21  PeggyG EdTechTalk: how exciting! Whoopi Goldberg!!!
 19:56:01  PeggyG EdTechTalk: That's the way I felt when Bill Cosby was doing his doctoral work at UMass the same time I was. :-)
 19:56:20  PeggyG EdTechTalk: I'll watch panwapa later :-)
 19:56:23  cheryloakes webcaster grad EdTechTalk: oh, peggy you name dropper
 19:56:31  alicebarr EdTechTalk: @Peggy did you get to chat with him educationally?
 19:56:35  PeggyG EdTechTalk: I know--but it was very exciting!
 19:56:44  alicebarr EdTechTalk: I'll bet it was
 19:57:26  PeggyG EdTechTalk: yes I did but he was fairly protected--you can imagine since it was a public school connected to School of Education and kids would follow him everywhere-even into the bathroom!
 19:58:14  alicebarr EdTechTalk: Poor guy
 19:58:34  cheryloakes webcaster grad EdTechTalk: If you haven't viewed panwapa, you really need to check it out and check out the written curriculum, it is exceptional,
 19:59:44  cheryloakes webcaster grad EdTechTalk: wow, bob went underwater for me,
 19:59:47  PeggyG EdTechTalk: I have 5-year-old grandkids and I need to share this with them!
 20:00:09  cheryloakes webcaster grad EdTechTalk: peggy, yes, and let us know what they think
 20:00:27  PeggyG EdTechTalk: I will! Is any reading required or offered?
 20:00:44  Kern EdTechTalk: Yeah, my 3year old son and I have played with it for a while
 20:00:50  cheryloakes webcaster grad EdTechTalk: maybe bob can answer, that one
 20:00:54  PeggyG EdTechTalk: One can't read anything yet and one reads on the 4th grade level even though they are both the same age.
 20:02:01  PeggyG EdTechTalk: delay in loading can be problematic for young kids. they probably fixed that
 20:02:14  cheryloakes webcaster grad EdTechTalk: yes, i believe so, peggy
 20:02:19  alicebarr EdTechTalk: New browsers handle it better
 20:02:37  cheryloakes webcaster grad EdTechTalk: Hello dai and Jane, is this a first time for you.
 20:03:13  PeggyG EdTechTalk: Can kids use it completely independently or is it better with a teacher/facilitator?
 20:03:23  cheryloakes webcaster grad EdTechTalk: i will ask peggy
 20:03:31  PeggyG EdTechTalk: love seeing all of those different languages there!
 20:04:51  PeggyG EdTechTalk: Gayle-tell us about your first grade on air podcasts
 20:07:05  PeggyG EdTechTalk: thanks-that sounds great! the audio must be a valuable piece to it!
 20:08:15  cheryloakes webcaster grad EdTechTalk: oops, little skip

 20:09:27  cheryloakes webcaster grad EdTechTalk: what a great idea to let the students direct their purpose for learning.!!!What a great teacher.
 20:10:10  DaveC (The 'other' Dave) EdTechTalk: My 5th graders had the same reaction.  Every presentation, every story being ready, open response answers, that's al lthey said, "We should put this on the Wildcat Roar!!!"
 20:10:17  PeggyG EdTechTalk: that was a great strategy to ask them to tell you why it should be a podcast!
 20:10:35  cheryloakes webcaster grad EdTechTalk: great sharing DaveC
 20:11:22  PeggyG EdTechTalk: how frequently did you podcast? was it a weekly routine or just as they requested it?
 20:11:38  alicebarr EdTechTalk: Amazing how students get so excited about podcasting! Their world!
 20:11:44  cheryloakes webcaster grad EdTechTalk:
 20:12:15  cheryloakes webcaster grad EdTechTalk:
 20:12:29  PeggyG EdTechTalk: I can't wait to hear some of them. I want my friend Shawn to she it on his weekly podcast--Adventures in Podcasting. He will love it because he loves highlighting teachers who are using podcating with their kids.
 20:13:27  PeggyG EdTechTalk: my typing skipped--so he can use it :-)
