 19:44:25 [Message] connect2jamie -> EdTechTalk: Had to be here for the last Seedlings of the season!
 19:44:39 [Message] cheryloakes~seedlings -> EdTechTalk: It has been a month! We are glad to be back.
 19:44:45 [Message] connect2jamie -> EdTechTalk: family says hi too heehee
 19:44:52 [Message] cheryloakes~seedlings -> EdTechTalk: Hello to the family.
 19:45:10 [Message] connect2jamie -> EdTechTalk: last few wks of school are always crazy
 19:45:34 [Message] cheryloakes~seedlings -> EdTechTalk: Oh, this has been a very busy time for us. All three different schedules!
 19:46:03 [Message] connect2jamie -> EdTechTalk: out of the mouths of babes!
 19:47:51 [Message] Alice Barr -> EdTechTalk: What a wonderful opportunity for Morgan!
 19:48:36 [Message] connect2jamie -> EdTechTalk: So glad they decided to let her go! Powerful.
 19:49:09 [Message] cheryloakes~seedlings -> EdTechTalk: Yes, they loved it.
 19:49:11 [Message] connect2jamie -> EdTechTalk: great story
 19:50:22 [Message] cheryloakes~seedlings -> EdTechTalk: Jamie, this has done so much for the other school,  as well as Morgan.
 19:51:52 [Message] connect2jamie -> EdTechTalk: very powerful. Sometimes hard to convince the adults that the kids have so much to share--that they know so much that is valuable to us!
 19:52:27 [Message] cheryloakes~seedlings -> EdTechTalk: Isn't that the truth.  Jamie
 19:52:35 [Message] Alice Barr -> EdTechTalk: Agree Jamie.
 19:53:34 [Message] connect2jamie -> EdTechTalk: I have a grp of 4th graders in a small tech club that want to go in to classes next year and teach other classes how to make a book review podcast. It was their idea, b/c they want other kids to do it too. So next year, that's what we're going to try to do.
 19:54:02 [Message] cheryloakes~seedlings -> EdTechTalk: Jamie, this is perfect. What do you use for podcasts?
 19:55:40 [Message] connect2jamie -> EdTechTalk: We use audacity. They're here on my library web site:
 19:55:52 [Message] bobsprankle -> EdTechTalk: excellent!
 19:55:57 [Message] cheryloakes~seedlings -> EdTechTalk: That is great. Connect with Bob's tech club.
 19:57:14 [Message] connect2jamie -> EdTechTalk: That would be soooo cool! We have a lot of hoops to jump through w/ my district (no skype, blah blah blah) but I'm feeling like becoming the squeaky wheel. Tired of getting NO for an answer!
 19:57:35 [Message] connect2jamie -> EdTechTalk: Like that--letters of interest
 19:57:43 [Message] cheryloakes~seedlings -> EdTechTalk: Good for you, start small like Cherrie MacInnes! from Brewer Maine.
 19:58:28 [Message] connect2jamie -> EdTechTalk: I don't know Cherrie, I dont think. She's trying the squeaky wheel approach too? :)
 19:59:25 [Message] cheryloakes~seedlings -> EdTechTalk: YES, she was a guest here and she started a state project where her 3rd graders talked to each state and found  a 3rd grade classroom.
 20:00:17 [Message] connect2jamie -> EdTechTalk: Oh yes! I remember her. That WAS a great way to sneak the tech & collaboration in!
 20:00:30 [Message] cheryloakes~seedlings -> EdTechTalk: Wasn't it! She really started ground up!
 20:02:38 [Message] connect2jamie -> EdTechTalk: I'll bet your kids will love evaluating apps ea week!
 20:02:51 [Message] cheryloakes~seedlings -> EdTechTalk: That would be fun.
