Teachers Teaching Teachers #185 - Did Educon 2.2 Make Us Smarter? - 02.03.10
On this podcast a few of us who attended Educon 2.2 reflect on our learning there. Appropriately enough, we were guided in this reflective conversation by:
- Hannah, a student from The Science Leadership Academy in Philadelphia
- her history teacher Diana Laufenberg
- their Principal, Chris Lehmann
On this podcast you'll hear what four teachers, three of us from different Writing Projects, had to say just a few days after ther conference. You'll hear from:
- Paul Allison, New York City Writing Project
- Joe Conroy, NWP at Rutgers University Writing Project (Don't miss Joe's video, below.)
- Gail Desler, Area 3 Writing Project in Northern California
- Dolores Gende, Academic Technology Coordinator and Physics teacher from Dallas, Texas
If you were at Educon, we hope you'll be able to compare notes with us. If you were not able to make it, perhaps this podcast can suggest why there's so much interest in Educon!
Here's how the organizers of EduCon 2.2 describe the conference:
What is Educon?
EduCon 2.2 is both a conversation and a conference.
And it is not a technology conference. It is an education conference. It is, hopefully, an innovation conference where we can come together, both in person and virtually, to discuss the future of schools. Every session will be an opportunity to discuss and debate ideas — from the very practical to the big dreams.
Guiding Principles of EduCon 2.2
- Our schools must be inquiry-driven, thoughtful and empowering for all members
- Our schools must be about co-creating — together with our students — the 21st Century Citizen
- Technology must serve pedagogy, not the other way around
- Technology must enable students to research, create, communicate and collaborate
- Learning can — and must — be networked

21:20:11 dgende: Hope it's helpful!
21:20:11 Cary Harrod: @gbarboni Might as well...I've been on my computer for hours.
21:20:22 rinegarcia: I do have skype but am having computer issues in general- old laptop.

21:21:38 SusanEttenheim: hi gail welcome back
21:21:51 SusanEttenheim: what's the deal with your skype?
21:21:51 rinegarcia: iLet me try. It's been awhile since I used it on this computer
21:22:01 PeggyG: there were some good strategies modeled in the sessions for active engagement
21:22:01 SusanEttenheim: great try it!
21:22:05 gcarboni: I have it but not on this work computer. gc_fjhs
21:22:28 Cary Harrod: In the Thumann/Davis session, they used many incredible protocols. It kept us engaged the entire time.
21:22:30 SusanEttenheim: well, if we can't call you in... what comments or questions do you have?
21:22:34 Maureen: 2 were from Reading and Beth is from the cape
21:23:01 SusanEttenheim: cary do you have skype? or did I already ask you.....
21:23:02 PeggyG: Liz and Lisa used the strategy of having people move around the "wheel" and share discussions from their first group with new people, one at a time--not sure what they called it but very effective
21:23:21 dgende: Subversive PD wiki: http://subversivepd.wikispaces.com/
21:23:21 Cary Harrod: Was that the speed dating protocol?
21:23:28 rinegarcia: My fav was the field guide for change agents with Ben Hazard and Rodd Lucier
21:23:51 PeggyG: yes! and Rodd's session on Ban the Chalkboard :-)
21:23:55 Cary Harrod: I saw last year's field guide online. It was shared on Twitter.
21:23:55 SusanEttenheim: 'gail can I call you in?
21:24:22 PeggyG: I missed Ban the Chalkboard at educon but saw it this week at another conference. It was outstanding.
21:24:32 dgende: Will was the instigator, and man are we garteful!
21:24:45 PeggyG: definitely dgende!!
21:24:47 rinegarcia: Peggy- same here about Ban Chalkboard
21:25:00 Cary Harrod: Haven't seen Ban the Chalkboard yet.
21:25:46 Cary Harrod: I have to admit, I wasn't in my best "outgoing" mood while in Philly. Not sure why but I think I missed some important conversations.
21:25:47 Paul Allison: http://www.educon22.org/
21:26:47 SusanEttenheim: gail skype keeps saying you are not online
21:26:57 dgende: Rodd Lucier's group created a Field Guide for Change Agents, get it here: http://www.slideshare.net/bhazzard/field-guide-for-change-agents
21:27:01 rinegarcia: Cary- I can understand that. It was my first time going. was asked to go 2 years ago but didn't. Wish I had
21:27:22 dgende: Hey Cary, you talked to the 4 musketeers!
21:27:49 PeggyG: http://thecleversheep.com/ This is Rodd Lucier's blog where he has posted his slideshare presentation of Ban the Chalkboard. Excellent!
21:27:55 jvirant: Thanks for the great conversation everyone--have to run!
21:27:58 Gail P: Skype coming on now, sorry I was browsing while listening
21:27:58 Cary Harrod: I went two years ago! At that point, I hadn't really jumped into the network, so I was really excited about going this year. I don't know...I was pretty disappointed in myself.
21:28:26 Cary Harrod: @dgende The four musketeer's will ride again!
21:29:13 Gail P: sorry Skype ran into trouble and is shutting down I'll retry
21:29:17 Cary Harrod: I wonder how we can continue the conversations started at Educon? Like this...this is great!
21:29:51 CalArmstrong: Where was Encienda? Never found it.
21:29:53 SusanEttenheim: cary I forgot your skype status?
21:29:54 Maureen: Those were good, fast paced and interesting

21:30:49 SusanEttenheim: peggy which conversation should we ask our participants to discuss?
21:30:54 PeggyG: There was also another group created for virtual participants that was really fun to follow--they used the hashtag #noneducon

21:31:04 PeggyG: yes I used the hashtag #educon in Tweetdeck

21:46:23 PeggyG: that's just the link to session 4
21:46:36 carolteach4: Lots of Smartboards being installed at my school this afternoon - at least 4 - teachers are very excited.

21:47:08 SusanEttenheim: dlaufenberg can we skype you in?
21:47:26 dlaufenberg: @susan yes, laufty on skype
21:48:00 Gail P: I wasn't in Philly but here tonight sucking up the good news.
21:48:01 Paul Allison: Diane did a session that Paul Oh loved!
21:48:24 SusanEttenheim: you'll have to close your other streams
21:48:26 carolteach4: @Peggy G - I am excited, too. Now I have to convince them to get the kids into the lab to produce student lessons using SmartNotebook 10 software. The SmartBoard really takes off when students are teaching with it,
21:48:37 rinegarcia: hey I have to take off. Next time it will be on a better computer. Have a great night and great rest of the week.
21:49:15 Peggyagain: rats! I lost my browser. Trying again. Thank goodness I didn't lose my audio :-)
21:49:20 carolteach4: How great it will be when more schools have a 1 to 1 laptop initiative.
21:49:25 SusanEttenheim: you too rinegarcis
21:49:28 SusanEttenheim: ia
21:49:32 Gail P: can an iPad to the same thing?
21:49:57 carolteach4: So far, I haven't been very impressed with the iPad.
21:50:21 Peggyagain: what an exciting session Paul!! can't wait to see the recording! awesome group of participants
21:50:23 Gail P: will it fill a niche for money strapped schools
21:50:24 carolteach4: I am still waiting for Flash application on the iPhone.
21:50:44 carolteach4: I understand there is a problem with Flash and Adobe and the iPad.
21:50:46 Peggyagain: yes Diana! welcome to the call!!
21:50:55 Peggyagain: yes no Adobe Flash on ipad
21:51:05 Peggyagain: also no camera on ipad :-(
21:51:06 tim: no flash on ipad or iphone
21:51:17 tim: afternoon
21:51:20 tim: :)
21:51:54 Peggyagain: and using a new platform for streaming this year :-)
21:52:44 SusanEttenheim: is there anyone else I haven't called you?
21:52:58 SusanEttenheim: hi chris! can we skype you in?
21:53:00 Gail P: @Peggyagain what platform are you streaming with
21:53:02 chrislehmann: Sure!
21:53:13 Peggyagain: that's the whole purpose of educon! conversations rather than presentations!
21:53:43 Peggyagain: I was referring to educon using Elluminate for streaming this year--last year they used Mogulus/Livestream
21:54:17 Peggyagain: out of the mouths of babes :-)
21:54:23 Peggyagain: hooray! welcome Chris!!
21:54:46 Peggyagain: what an awesome conference, even for the virtual participants!!!!
21:55:21 Peggyagain: you're putting her on the spot Paul
21:55:23 dlaufenberg: we are using the Lanahan reader for Government and Collapse for Globalization
21:55:38 dlaufenberg: and last year we used Howard Zinn.
21:56:00 dlaufenberg: try to use 'real' resources, rather than text
21:56:06 Peggyagain: that doesn't sound like the textbooks I remember :-)
21:57:05 Peggyagain: Chris, I really learned a lot from your Leadership 2.0 session. Want to get in the skype call to talk about it?
21:57:18 dlaufenberg: we don't use a ton of textbooks... we use books a ton... but frankly, the national archives is THE BEST resource a history teacher can ask for...
21:57:32 Peggyagain: I agree dlaufenberg!!
21:58:09 Gail Desler: And the SLA students do have hard copy novels in the English class
21:58:12 dlaufenberg: @mrchase is having the 11th graders read a book of choice right now and really enjoying that experience
21:58:20 dlaufenberg: and what that offers
21:58:50 Peggyagain: that's a very interesting perspective about the books
21:59:10 gcarboni: got to go - have a good night
21:59:19 Peggyagain: it would be great if you could write a book about leadership Chris!! It would be a best-seller!
22:00:16 SusanEttenheim: hi nnnn welcoe
22:00:19 SusanEttenheim: welcome
22:02:30 carolteach4: If we only have time to listen to the archives of one or two of the sessions, which ones would you recommend?
22:02:32 dlaufenberg: i think the kids learn a TON outside of school. that is what makes what happens inside the classroom so much more rich and interesting
22:03:37 Peggyagain: tough question Carolyn!! it really depends on your interests
22:03:43 Gail Desler: Thanks to teachers like you, Dlaufenberg, who help make those connections
22:04:00 dlaufenberg: @carol there are some sessions that are more 'consumable' online.
22:04:12 Peggyagain: very true Diana
22:04:25 dlaufenberg: my educon reflective blog post was essentially about the f2f connections
22:04:25 carolteach4: @dlaufenberg - really middle school integration
22:04:52 Peggyagain: the "presentation" type sessions are more viewable online but the conversations and interactive sessions were the most valuable I thought
22:06:24 Peggyagain: I would highly recommend Chris's session! Leadership 2.0
22:06:58 Peggyagain: and not just because he is in this conversation! I said it before he arrived too :-)
22:07:06 carolteach4: Thanks, I'll take a look. Do you have the link to where they are archived. I have it but I'm not sure where.
22:07:28 dlaufenberg: @carol the archives are coming.
22:07:34 carolteach4: Thanks
22:07:35 Maureen: One question that I came away with- how would an SLA type school work with younger kids?
22:07:58 dlaufenberg: @maureen I think that many of the core values we have would translate well with younger kids
22:07:59 Peggyagain: also view Rodd Lucier's session on Ban the Chalk
22:08:11 Gail Desler: @Maureen - great question
22:08:37 Peggyagain: they even had snow this year :-)
22:08:50 Maureen: The values and level of responsibility that the kids show.... how do you get this with the younger kids? When/how do kids learn the basic skills they need to take off and control their own learning?
22:08:52 dlaufenberg: @peggy sure did. and had more overnight...
22:09:28 dlaufenberg: @maureen I would hope that if the model was handled well with younger students, that there would be amazing potential by HS
22:09:41 Peggyagain: the student voice was significant at educon! very unique
22:10:19 carolteach4: I understand that the students were responsible for all of the streaming.
22:10:46 dlaufenberg: @carol there were responsible for the lion share of the work. hands down. without them, this doesn't work.
22:10:49 Maureen: @diane- I agree, but wonder how to give the kids the freedom I saw at SLA, but the guidance they need to develop citizenship, etc... along with teaching them to read, write, think, evaluate, synthesize and create
22:10:51 carolteach4: I thought the camera work at David Warlick's Saturday session was very well done.
22:11:03 Peggyagain: I think we should keep retweeting about making a donation to educon if people participated virtually --such a valuable opportunity and they should contribute
22:11:26 dlaufenberg: @peggy (we will be coming to AZ in May) :)
22:11:53 Peggyagain: hooray Diana!! would love to see you! are you coming to WOW? Kevin Honeycutt is our keynote
22:12:05 Maureen: This was my 1st educon experience and I was surprised at how much I had to miss- people, conversations, etc.. Would love a smaller venue
22:12:37 carolteach4: Night all.
22:12:40 Peggyagain: loved the conversation tonight!! I'm still on a high from the weekend and this just kept it alive!
22:12:46 dlaufenberg: i think maybe having it with student involvement would also be key.
22:12:46 SusanEttenheim: night all!
22:13:00 Gail Desler: Me too @ Peggyagain
22:13:08 Maureen: Thank you to everyone at SLA- great experience
22:13:15 dlaufenberg: @peggy i actually could make it. strangely enough... is it May 1st?
22:13:48 dlaufenberg: thanks to all of you who made the weekend lovely.
22:13:50 Peggyagain: @Chris and Diana-you have probably heard this but the survey links didn't work after the first time we completed one online--always came up as thank you for completing the survey
22:14:12 Peggyagain: yes May 1--please come!!!! it will be great!
22:14:13 jconroy: Good nightQ!
22:14:19 CalArmstrong: Thanks, everyone... and thanks Diana & Chris
