21:10:10 Mary Beth: Someone's video is playing and messing up the video
21:10:21 SusanEttenheim: yes there is echo
21:10:38 JL: Thomas - had to mute you - was getting feedack. I suspect from the Ustream
21:10:49 paula: I LOVED John's post today--haven't had time to respond, but "I have a voice" we should all post around that theme...
21:10:57 Mary Beth: I loved seeing how Gregory refurbished machines for his classroom!
21:10:58 monika: cool jets.. no?
21:11:02 Chris Sloan: @Susan. no, but I'll try again. For now, just listening
21:11:04 paula: Local, grass roots--that's what we're all about.
21:11:26 telliowkuwp: Yes, I had some responses elsewhere to John's post. Loved it 2
21:11:47 Paul Oh: @Paula I haven't had a chance to read John's post yet, but love the idea of teachers and their voice
21:11:48 paula: Gregory--we're all about "learning spaces" in our district--post pics of your classroom?
21:11:53 thomassteelemaley: Ok, I will focus on the chat, no video here....or audio
21:12:03 telliowkuwp: Greg's idea of coop as sounding board rings true for me
21:12:22 JL: Ustream is not working Thomas?
21:12:35 paula: sounding board is a crazy important piece, I agree.
21:12:47 thomassteelemaley: thats right
21:12:51 JL: We heard you when you entered the Hangout, but were getting feedback.
21:13:06 JL: If Ustream if off now (no audio), feel free to try and rejoin the hangout
21:13:19 thomassteelemaley: I may head to the hangout...yes
21:14:08 monika: based on trust
21:14:12 monika: huge energy in that
21:14:43 monika: or in the emails
21:15:16 monika: disruption is a positive word
21:15:29 paula: I may be in the hangout, but the sound is weird--can't understand--and I have my ustream turned off.
21:15:30 SusanEttenheim: whoever is typing - could you please mute while you type?
21:15:51 JL: try clicking 'settings' in hangout
21:15:55 JL: adjust speakers, perhaps?
21:16:34 SusanEttenheim: uh oh another ustream ad... hahaha
21:16:40 SusanEttenheim: oh they're fast!

21:23:17 PeggyG: so funny to see the faces pop up with the slightest comment :_)
21:23:33 SusanEttenheim: yes it gets a bit frantic at moments :)
21:23:36 PeggyG: I've only observed several hangouts so far
21:23:40 SusanEttenheim: ahh
21:23:55 MsEstep: Are they using the hangout in G+?
21:24:11 PeggyG: i love seeing everyone's faces! :-)
21:24:13 jeff: good way for people to become visually aware of their background/typing noise
21:24:21 jeff: a new audio nag tool :)
21:24:23 PeggyG: yes-hangout in google +
21:24:27 SusanEttenheim: have you all seen this site? coopcatalyst.wordpress.com
21:24:54 SusanEttenheim: we have a typer now... :)
21:24:57 Jamie Steckart: I am pursuing an educational delivery mechanism that will allow the most freedom to teachers and students, right now in MN that tool is charters, but if they gives us something that has less red tape, I am on it in a heartbeat.
21:25:14 Mary Beth: Love that...Personal Action Network
21:25:19 SusanEttenheim: jamie - I used to live in St. Paul - where in MN are you?
21:25:22 Chris Sloan: I'm a little late to this. How did Chad, Paula, Aaron, and Adam get together in the beginning of this?
21:25:26 MsEstep: This is pretty cool :)
21:25:55 SusanEttenheim: uh oh I just lost the ustream
21:26:00 SusanEttenheim: did anyone else?
21:26:17 PeggyG: paula is talking but her image didn't pop up
21:26:31 SusanEttenheim: I have a black screen and a sad face
21:26:38 SusanEttenheim: guess I'll go out and come back in
21:26:42 PeggyG: I'm getting an ad now
21:26:44 MsEstep: I keep losing sound and the pic isn't changing
21:26:45 SusanEttenheim: did it happen to anyone else?
21:26:46 Jamie Steckart: the coop is thefree market of idea, like John Locke envisioned
21:26:48 MsEstep: oh, there it goes
21:26:57 SusanEttenheim: brb
21:27:06 PeggyG: show is back now for me
21:27:19 SusanEttenheim: ah I just got a message that my shockwave flash plugin crashed
21:28:26 SusanEttenheim: hi all - back!
21:28:32 MsEstep: wb!
21:28:38 PeggyG: I can't float the chat window tonight. Did the chat tool change?
21:28:42 SusanEttenheim: funny to see the ad and hear the conversation
21:28:54 SusanEttenheim: I'm not able to float the chat either Peggy
21:29:10 paula: got kicked out of the hangout. my connection stinks--next time, I'll be doing this from school.
21:29:10 paula: my connection stinks tonight, apparently--I am losing sound and the pic doens't move either.
21:29:14 PeggyG: makes it impossible to drag a url into the chat
21:29:26 SusanEttenheim: yup I typed it in before
21:29:31 PeggyG: sorry paula
21:30:09 PeggyG: the chat is really wonky tonight-types caps when i don't and removes them when i type them
21:30:35 jeff: I'm really not liking this addon chat room any more. Thinking it is time to leave this behind , but haven't found great alternatives. Been using Meebo on some sites.
21:30:51 Jamie Steckart: homeschoolers rule!
21:30:59 PeggyG: i've never had this many problems with the chat
21:31:17 Chris Sloan: @jeff. what do you want the chat to do that it doesn't do now
21:31:25 Jamie Steckart: unschoolers really rule!
21:31:32 SusanEttenheim: chris - paste into it
21:31:38 Chris Sloan: right
21:31:47 Chris Sloan: that's a big one
21:31:56 PeggyG: and be able to copy/paste chat to save it
21:32:00 Chris Sloan: @Jamie. say more about unschoolers
21:32:26 PeggyG: lisa nielsen has done some awesome writing about unschooling--also interviews
21:32:33 Jamie Steckart: Here is our blog: http://homegrownonsiskiwit.blogspot.com/?zx=ae5b72aba2fe3331
21:32:57 Jamie Steckart: I run a public school but my children are unschooled.
21:33:23 Jamie Steckart: John Holt Freedom from Schools
21:33:24 SusanEttenheim: that's interesting because we always say students are more thoughtful when they know others are reading it and now we see it here :)
21:33:46 PeggyG: every time you have to refresh the stream (stalled) a new ad comes up. ;-(
21:34:01 SusanEttenheim: yes at least they are short ads :)
21:34:07 SusanEttenheim: who is this speaking?
21:34:16 SusanEttenheim: where do you teach?
21:34:48 PeggyG: last message i typed didn't come up while the ad was playing
21:34:49 Chris Sloan: thanks for the resources Jamie
21:34:54 SusanEttenheim: who was it who was teaching 3 yrs?
21:34:57 Jamie Steckart: How do you fight the seven lesson school teacher http://www.newciv.org/whole/schoolteacher.txt
21:35:01 Mary Beth: @Susan Chad Sansing (@chadsansing)
21:35:03 monika: gregory hill
21:35:05 Chris Sloan: weird but I'm not getting any ads
21:35:07 jeff: @Chris - I want it to be lighter, more cross-platform friendly, and a lot easier to paste links inot
21:35:08 monika: in st louis
21:35:09 jeff: into
21:35:12 Jamie Steckart: We can start another school chad
21:35:13 SusanEttenheim: before chad
21:35:14 Mary Beth: oh wait, that was Greg
21:35:34 jeff: Considering IRC possibilities, but would want to set up automatic logging and moderation
21:35:48 Jamie Steckart: We are looking at starting three new schools next year. Looking for some Goddard Grads to fill the staff positions
21:35:53 PeggyG: everything froze up for me AND I had to refresh the page. now the ad again...
21:36:03 SusanEttenheim: ah Greg I'm wondering what happens at your school in terms of any mentoring for new teachers?
21:36:04 paula: paul oh
21:36:33 Chris Sloan: I lost audio. anybody else?
21:36:35 PeggyG: when you record the stream does it include the ads?
21:36:40 Jamie Steckart: New Teachers at www.nwphsorg team teach for an entire year with a veteran teacher.
21:36:53 PeggyG: yes me too chris--just froze up
21:36:54 jeff: no (ads in recording)
21:37:04 csansing: Y'all rock - dive into the video hangout if able!
21:37:04 PeggyG: thanks jeff-that's good
21:37:12 Jamie Steckart: You should look at teacher run schools at EdVisions.com
21:37:13 monika: rhizomatic
21:37:16 paula: yep, lost the audio
21:37:34 jeff: recording will also have higher video quality - using screencast-o-matic which does better than Ustream recording
21:37:34 Jamie Steckart: Teachers as owners
21:37:51 PeggyG: wish names would appear when people are speaking ;-)
21:38:08 paula: Peggy, I agree
21:38:23 Chris Sloan: more interesting links Jamie
21:38:25 PeggyG: are you doing that jeff? that's great!
21:38:25 monika: in live chat they do
21:38:35 Mary Beth: That was me :)
21:38:41 jeff: The ETT elf is here to serve
21:38:45 PeggyG: do the names just appear on the bottom of the hangout windoW?
21:38:57 jeff: if you mouse over,yes
21:38:58 Chris Sloan: @Jaime. I appreciate the links your providing, I mean.
21:39:04 paula: when we began we agreed to post on a common theme each week. Now it's agreed in the google groups
21:39:04 PeggyG: you're thE BEST!
21:39:51 SusanEttenheim: hey chris
21:39:56 jeff: except when people backchannel in the hangout, messes up name display and adds bings to the audio
21:39:56 PeggyG: that's a great way to do it with a common theme each week
21:40:08 Mary Beth: we did also have a long discussion about organizing by blog topic
21:40:12 PeggyG: that's funny1
21:40:15 Chris Sloan: who comes up with the themes
21:40:22 SusanEttenheim: ah is that where the bings are coming from!
21:40:28 paula: anyone comes up with themes to suggest
21:41:05 jeff: and when people enter or exit
21:41:12 SusanEttenheim: hi val welcome!
21:41:13 paula: we're right now trying to get folks to support the SOSMarch with the hashtag #bloggermarch
21:41:21 jeff: wish is as possible to mute them, but don't think it's an option yet
21:42:06 SusanEttenheim: hi andrea welcome!
21:42:08 Chris Sloan: hi andrea Z
21:42:09 paula: the organic piece is part of what makes it so powerful
21:42:15 Andrea Z: Thanks Susan! Hi Chris!
21:42:22 csansing: Terry made a great post about emergence in the video chat - how has your work and our work led to emergent discoversies and acts?
21:42:24 Andrea Z: Sorry I'm late: I was doing school things :)
21:42:32 Chris Sloan: it makes sense that the process is organic, given the conversation so far
21:42:36 Jamie Steckart: I am really looking forward to see a theme on how we can develop personal learning plans for all students
21:43:01 Chris Sloan: personal learning plans for all students?
21:43:13 Paul Oh: Need to go to do some planning! Good night, all.
21:43:18 Chris Sloan: bye Paul
21:43:22 csansing: Later, @poh!
21:43:22 SusanEttenheim: night paul oh!
21:43:26 PeggyG: this is a fascinating model! so glad you're sharing it
21:43:31 paula: Hi, Andrea! Great question, Chad!
21:43:44 SusanEttenheim: chris I wonder what the relationship will be between personal learning plans and eportfolios
21:44:00 paula: will the hangout chat be archived? Only those in it can see it.
21:44:07 SusanEttenheim: will be good when eportfolios stop being just a traditional replacement and really something new and exciting
21:44:13 csansing: Love it - "The tags were outta control!"
21:44:21 jeff: If it's OK with participants will be glad to post
21:44:28 SusanEttenheim: no paula - I can see it
21:44:32 csansing: @jeff, please do!
21:44:46 Andrea Z: Ahh: the tag issue. Always a problem with the collaborative blogging. At gradhacker we use categories.
21:44:50 Chris Sloan: @Chad. sounds like a collaborative necessity.
21:44:52 PeggyG: we can only see the posts in the ETt chat
21:45:09 monika: philosophical meanderings
21:45:24 PeggyG: common tags are very helpful
21:45:26 Jamie Steckart: @Chris we use ProjectFoundry to develop PLP for every kid
21:45:38 SusanEttenheim: what's that chris?
21:45:39 paula: susan, where do you see it?
21:45:53 csansing: @Chris - indeed.
21:45:53 SusanEttenheim: oh I meant right now in the ustream window
21:46:10 paula: there's a separate chat happening in the hangout.
21:46:27 SusanEttenheim: ah I see what you mean - I don't see that
21:46:30 Andrea Z: I really want to be in the hangout....I'm in love with hangouts.
21:46:44 Chris Sloan: @Jaime. where's your blog again?
21:46:50 monika: https://talkgadget.google.com/hangouts/6cfa653c70d88c354dc393881fa8c2a20...
21:46:53 csansing: @johntspencer's post today was a great illustration of how to flip powerlessness into authority.
21:46:55 Mary Beth: Guess I need to go read John's post ASAP!
21:47:05 mrsenorhill: indeed
21:47:18 paula: Chad's description of John's post is AWESOME!
21:47:20 csansing: @MaryBeth - I have a ticker in my classroom that just streams the Coöp.
