 PeggyG ->  upper right corner under EdTechTalk A-click on first icon for itunes

 cheryloakes50 ->  thanks for Peggy

 cheryloakes50 ->  hello Shelia!

 afuggiti ->  Got it 

 Sheila ->  Hi everyone!

 PeggyG ->  congrats!!!

 PeggyG ->  I got to participate in the Mobile Learning Conference in Phoenix last week and it was awesome!

 cheryloakes50 ->  hello AaronB

 PeggyG ->  there are tons of fantastic blog posts from the Mobile Conference that you can explore for links and resources!

 cheryloakes50 ->  Hello mbouchillon, welcome to the conversation.

 cheryloakes50 ->  Thanks Peggy for sharing.

 Sheila ->  Thanks for the links Peggy!

 alicebarr ->  @Peggy was that the one where Tony Vincent spoke?

 PeggyG ->  I learned how to create iBooks that are multimedia from Meg Wilson and I'm so excited to try it!

 alicebarr ->  He is our Keynote for the Maine TEch Conference this year

 PeggyG ->  those sound like great models!

 alicebarr ->  I love Emerging Technology Course! Cool idea!

 PeggyG ->  tuition costs are going up so much for higher ed! wish that online learning could offer a cheaper alternative!

 cheryloakes50 ->  Yes, Alice, it sounds like the next stage is right behind.

 cheryloakes50 ->  Yes Peggy.

 PeggyG ->  an Emerging Technology course sounds like a dream! what fun!

 Rebecca P. ->  Peggy it is fun! 

 PeggyG ->  I loved watching the Discovery stream today from the New York Stock Exchange! The student asking the interview questions was using his iPad to ask questions from the online participants :-)

 cheryloakes50 ->  that sounds great do you have a link?

 PeggyG ->  yes-it was a virtual field trip and they will post the recording here soon:

 cheryloakes50 ->  thanks!

 PeggyG ->  it would be so hard to share one ipad :-)

 PeggyG ->  what a great example!!! google doc on his ipad!

 PeggyG ->  that's so funny to hear "down east" :-) where is that? 

 alicebarr ->

 bobsprankle ->  north from me :)

 alicebarr ->

 cheryloakes50 ->  I had a teacher looking frantically for her .ppt that she presented last year at the school committee. She couldn't find the copy on her laptop or the server. I suggested she look in her google account. Many hours later, I suggested it again, and we found it in 3 min.  Make sure you save in google.

 cheryloakes50 ->  Downeast is how the trade winds blow on the Maine Coast.

 PeggyG ->  :-)

 PeggyG ->  great suggestion Cheryl! save in Google

 alicebarr ->  Down east is actually north of us :) 

 Rebecca P ->

 PeggyG ->  those were exactly the kinds of questions people were discussing at the mobile learning conference and you'll find some suggestions in the blog posts

 cheryloakes50 ->

 connect2jamie ->  The user un-friendliness is the reason our IT gives as a reason to keep iPads out of the hands of tchrs/kids. Email to us said iPads are "administrative productivity tools" only b/c the feasibility of using any apple product district wide was low. I told the IT guy that the entire state of Maine had somehow worked around it to make it at least feasible! Didn't like me saying that.

 Rebecca P ->  @connect2jamie lol 

 cheryloakes50 ->  Oh, connect2jamie, keep pushing! Mike Muir said he only takes his ipad with him now when he travels, presents etc!

 alicebarr ->  @connect2jamie Keep pushing!

 connect2jamie ->  Thanks for the encouragement! That's why I love my Maine friends! :)

 cheryloakes50 ->  We love you too!

 PeggyG ->  sorry connect2jamie! they clearly don't see the power of the iPads for all ages!

 PeggyG ->  put an iPad in the hands of a 4-5 year old and they intuitively figure it out! :-)

 cheryloakes50 ->  yes, Peggy

 alicebarr ->

 connect2jamie ->  Yes, I've got some links in my Diigo acct about the Aurora kindergarten project to bolster the argument. Reading specialists are piloting use of iTouches this year, but IT has just had fits. Don't know if it'll last another year. We'll see.

 alicebarr ->  BEST tool EVER!

 PeggyG ->  dropbox is such a valuable tool!!

 cheryloakes50 ->  connect2jamie, keep following the kindergarten break throughs!

 connect2jamie ->  LOVE dropbox! 

 Sheila ->  I was asked to stop dropbox - too much traffic when it keeps checking for files.

 Rebecca P ->  That's interesting Sheila. 

 cheryloakes50 ->  Oh, Shelia, that is like "stop learning so much, you are filling your head"

 alicebarr ->  @Sheila, maybe you can get it to NOT auto Sync?? 

 connect2jamie ->  Yes I will. Maine is the laboratory for many of the other states. From what i understand, it was your governor that really supported the tech in your state. Visionary.

 alicebarr ->  THen kids could just sync beginning and end of day? Not sure

 Sheila ->  Good Idea Alice!

 AaronB ->  I've heard a lot about iPads being more appropriate for the lower grades, k-2; why is this? In the district where I work all the admins have them and the lower grades, but not the higher grade. Is there a message here? 

 alicebarr ->  @connect2jamie Angus King was a real visionary!

 PeggyG ->  that's strange Sheila! is it because they keep their dropbox open all the time?

 PeggyG ->  @AaronB--there are tons of uses for middle school/high school--they just need to do a little exploring!

 Sheila ->  I leave it going. It was just me at school.

 connect2jamie ->  @alice I'm in TX. Public schools *definitely* suffer from not having an Angus King in the governor's mansion!

 PeggyG ->  I love that example in the grocery store Cheryl!

 Sheila ->  We just got 3 iPads for our school. Hoping the Sped teams will make use of them first.

 cheryloakes50 ->  It was fun!She was just so excited to share.

 alicebarr ->  @connect2jamie We were really lucky to have him.

 connect2jamie ->  I think SpEd is an exciting place for iPad use. That will be interesting to watch.

 PeggyG ->  the uses for SPED students are incredible!! Meg Wilson does some fantastic presentations about the tools on iPads for assistive technologies :-)

 Sheila ->  Will check her out. THanks Peggy!

 cheryloakes50 ->

 cheryloakes50 ->  wow she looks great

 PeggyG ->  yes! it just happens her blog post is the first one right now and you can access all 3 of her sessions from that link!

 Sheila ->  I have better posture with a desktop! ;)

 Rebecca P ->

 connect2jamie ->  @sheila that is true! I'm slouched in a chair w my feet up right now! :\

 cheryloakes50 ->  connect2jamie, will you be at ISTE?

 Sheila ->  :) @Jamie course I can slouch anywhere at the end of the day!

 connect2jamie ->  Ah, alas no. I so wish I could afford it, but my college daughter is effectively using up every last dime that we have right now! College is killing us! Yikes! Maybe one day she'll graduate and it'll be like we've gotten a huge raise! I hope!

 PeggyG -> this was a great session about high school writing apps and Derek suggested we go to to find great reviews of educational apps for all age levels

 cheryloakes50 ->  Well, you will ustream in to the experience! We Alice and I will be there.

 Rebecca P ->  That's a great link Peggy. Thanks for sharing it. 

 connect2jamie ->  Yes @cheryl--I always spend the whole ISTE time virtually and I LOVE it! It's great! One day I'll get to go IRL & meet all of you!

 PeggyG ->  the conference held a contest for submitting blog posts about all of the sessions and the winner got an iPad2 with cover! About 150 blog posts with incredible detail for links and recommendations. Brilliant idea!

 cheryloakes50 ->  That is an excellent idea! ACTEM should do it

 alicebarr ->  ooo very cool idea!

 cheryloakes50 ->  peggy, where is the link to the conference again?

 PeggyG ->

 PeggyG ->  they told people their blog posts had to be at least 300 words--not just a "tweet" :-) and they are so valuable! many included videos, presentation links, etc.

 cheryloakes50 ->  excellent! Shelia, will you do this for Christa?

 PeggyG -> This was an excellent session about using apps in guided reading and they used QR codes :-) 

 Sheila ->  I'm thinking about it! Just NHSTE do it though. . . .maybe.

 PeggyG ->  students were using Dragon Dictation to practice their fluency just by listening to their own recordings :-)

 dtduggins ->  Thanks for all the links they will be useful.  I just checked them out, I love apps and so I will share the love. There are many great apps we could use in the classroom. Bring on the ipads.

 PeggyG ->  Hi there

 PeggyG ->  just very excited about everything I learned last week at the conference!

 PeggyG ->  no it was last week

 cheryloakes50 ->  hello susan! welcome

 PeggyG ->  have any of you ever used ? They have an amazing collection of interactive ready books for kids

 cheryloakes50 ->  that is a great site, thanks!

 PeggyG ->  that's such a key point! many different devices that the kids own but it still works :-)

 PeggyG ->  there are blog posts about that too--policies and AUPs for using mobile devices

 AaronB ->  Can anyone recommend any good aps for helping students in math?

 cheryloakes50 ->  yes, aaronb, hold on

 Rebecca P ->  Hi Aaron... just a sec.

 PeggyG ->  @Aaron go to that website I mentioned earlier and search for math and you'll find MANY--

 cheryloakes50 ->

 cheryloakes50 ->  Aaronb, lisa has some great links

 PeggyG ->  Meg Wilson demonstrated how she used her iPad to take to her governing board meeting to make an appeal for funding for iPads in her special ed program. They were so impressed with what she could show them right from her iPad that they approved the funding!!

 AaronB ->  Great! Thank you Peggy, Cheryl and Rebecca for the links. I can't wait to try them. 

 dtduggins ->  Hmm usng cell phones to teach life skills, clever

 connect2jamie ->  @Bob Amen to that! You can't blame the tool! We have to set things up so that the cheating doesn't happen! It's not the phones!

 Sheila ->  My 7th graders started to figure out how to start a quiz on Quia and then say connectivitiy dropped out and restart the quiz (that they have already seen). Interesting. They were so naive, but not any more.

 PeggyG -> This is a fantastic google spreadsheet from TCEA 2010 with suggestions for apps organized by subject and include prices (if any)

 alicebarr ->  Wow Peggy! You are on fire tonight!

 PeggyG ->  :-)

 alicebarr ->  now Geek of the Week coming up!

 cheryloakes50 ->  Peggy, good thing for us that you are retired and work full time for all of us!

 connect2jamie ->  Wow Peggy! I never found that TCEA list! Great!

 Sheila ->  Chalk breaks! :p 

 Rebecca P ->  Here is a link to a wiki from my course. Each week the students update the site with resources. Check the mLearning section.

 cheryloakes50 -> That is our state house, and the nominees have like a poster session.
 alicebarr (SEEDlings) -> At the State House
 cheryloakes50 -> All the legislature passes by.
 PeggyG -> great idea!
 PeggyG -> do the legislators actually show up? :-)
 cheryloakes50 -> They have to walk by :-)
 PeggyG -> we did something like that in AZ and set it up right on their path to lunch :-) they didn't stay long but we planned some interactive things on the posters to try to hook them
 PeggyG -> what a wonderful opportunity!
 PeggyG -> what a great quote! you couldn't do this without us :-)
 cheryloakes50 -> Isn't that great! The kids get it.
 PeggyG -> like that description--lulls and great tidal waves :-)
 alicebarr (SEEDlings) -> Our State is so huge
 cheryloakes50 -> evening shelia!
 alicebarr (SEEDlings) -> Hi Sheila
 sheila -> Hi there!
 PeggyG -> I definitely agree with that recommendation! Any of the nominees would be exemplary teachers who could speak to pre-service teachers
 cheryloakes50 -> Doesn't that make sense to spread those speakers around!
 alicebarr (SEEDlings) -> I love that idea... such good models
 PeggyG -> do they teach the "Teacher of the Year" about strategies for advocating for education with legislators?
 cheryloakes50 -> Bring our student faces to the message of education.
 PeggyG -> I heard one of Steve Hargadon's guests say that he didn't believe teachers were being bashed and my mouth fell open!!
 alicebarr (SEEDlings) -> Really?? Wow Peggy
 cheryloakes50 -> Hm, interesting perspective.
 PeggyG -> he was a very well known researcher and author for educational research
 cheryloakes50 -> We are still a ripple.
 cheryloakes50 -> in the big pond.
 PeggyG -> that's why it's so important to learn effective strategies for advocacy
 cheryloakes50 -> And marketing! We need to learn how to market our product, our students.
 PeggyG -> yes! the news wants to focus on the negative news about teachers and students
 cheryloakes50 -> Yes, I like NBC with their positive new bites.
 PeggyG -> even when we create great PR with videos, stories, etc. it's hard to get them air time
 cheryloakes50 -> Yes, and then who is watching the public access channel. We need to play a a video at the grocery store or the restaurants!
 Shelly Moody -> Any PR we put out to the public will plant seeds of thought.  
 PeggyG -> or in the laundromats where people are waiting for their laundry to finish :-)
 cheryloakes50 -> yes! Peggy, great idea. We need to think out of the box.
 sheila -> We are talking about a neighborhood campaign. Bring the facts to our neighbors.
 cheryloakes50 -> Hi Janice,  welcome!!
 Janice S -> Thanks. Glad to be here.
 alicebarr (SEEDlings) -> Sheila, great idea!
 PeggyG -> great idea Sheila because there are so many people (who vote) who don't have kids in schools
 PeggyG -> I always love the "Principal of the Day" program we had in AZ because it brought prominent community leaders into the school for a day to see all of the great things happening
 cheryloakes50 -> I agree Shelly, put the student face out there.
 PeggyG -> I had a great day with a President of a local bank in Phoenix! He became a strong advocate for schools/teachers
 connect2jamie -> I agree with you Bob.
 cheryloakes50 -> Yes, Peggy, that is making connections.
 PeggyG -> they begin to understand how much work it is to be a teacher and there are passionate, dedicated teachers who don't trample the kids on the way out the door at the end of the day
 sheila -> I saw a flyer at a restaurant in my hometown called "Great Schools and Great Towns Go Hand in Hand!) Very quick easy read.
 PeggyG -> great quote Sheila!
 cheryloakes50 -> Shelia, that is good.
 Janice S -> I heard about your new governer in Maine on NPR today - kind of against unions. Probably an atmosphere to fear.
 sheila -> Good point! Back to passion.
 PeggyG -> so sorry but I can't stay for the whole session-I'll look forward to listening to the rest on the recording. Fantastic guest! Congrats Shelly!
 alicebarr (SEEDlings) -> Bye Peggy! Thanks for coming
 alicebarr (SEEDlings) -> Hi Deb
 Deb Barrows -> Hello!
 bobsprankle -> deb!!!
 Deb Barrows -> Sorry to be late
 Deb Barrows -> but glad to be here.
 cheryloakes50 -> Hi Deb!
 cheryloakes50 -> You get a pass for being late today.
 Deb Barrows -> HAHA
 Deb Barrows -> We are doing so many innovative things in Maine compared to most of the rest of the US but we take it for granted.
 Deb Barrows -> So it's hard to celebrate greatness when it's the norm.
 cheryloakes50 -> Deb, isn't that the truth, but we always are raising the bar
 Deb Barrows -> Yes we are in Maine.
 cheryloakes50 ->
 cheryloakes50 -> Did you all see Google today, Houdini
 Deb Barrows -> I love watching the TED talks.
 Deb Barrows -> Yes, Cheryl I did. I was helping someone and they said - that's not the Google I use!
 cheryloakes50 -> hee hee
 sheila -> @Cheryl - no he disappeared for me!  ;) Houdini
 Deb Barrows -> Bob - do you know anyone who has presented on TED?
 cheryloakes50 -> *)
 Deb Barrows -> HAHA - he didn't disappear on my screen - how cool.
 sheila -> Kidding!
 cheryloakes50 ->   what adults can learn from kids
 Deb Barrows -> That's great Bob - Redmond is an exciting place - that's where Crick had it's headquaters.
 Janice S -> I saw your daughter's presentation and song. She was wonderful!
 bobsprankle -> cool, deb!
 Janice S -> On the web.
 bobsprankle -> we were on Microsoft campus
 Deb Barrows -> It's pretty amazing isn't it Bob?
 bobsprankle -> yes!!
 connect2jamie -> I saw your daughter too  Bob. I felt proud of her! Like an internet-auntie! :)
 cheryloakes50 -> connect2jamie, that is so cute! internet auntie
 connect2jamie -> heehee! I did!
 bobsprankle -> that
 bobsprankle -> that
 bobsprankle -> that's wonderful jamie
 bobsprankle -> <sorry for the stutter>
 connect2jamie -> LOL!
 Deb Barrows -> I was working in a Middle and HS Monday in Carmel, CA. I couldn't believe the bell ran every 42 minutes and everyone moved. I totally forgot about that false envirnment. We need a HS to total redesign their day all based on interest with not more than 3 adults a day.
 cheryloakes50 -> Yes, Deb.!!! Hear, hear!
 Deb Barrows -> We don't need years of research either.
 cheryloakes50 -> That is right, we can do this now.
 Deb Barrows -> So, create an alternative school in your HS -
 Deb Barrows -> Anyone can apply
 cheryloakes50 -> what do you mean anyone can apply? Deb.
 cheryloakes50 -> Create a school in a school!
 Janice S -> I think a SMARTboard works best when just in one classroom. Shared doesn't work as well.
 Deb Barrows -> Yes a school in a school and it doesn't have to be just Sp. Ed.
 cheryloakes50 -> Yes, Deb. school in a school is a good fiscally responsive way to go.    Janice, it is like sharing a camera, you never have it when you need it.
 Janice S -> Agreed.
 Janice S -> And now you can save it!
 cheryloakes50 -> yes
 sheila -> My students really like the clickers too! I give 5 questions frequently during the week. Keeps them focused on content and more engaged.
 cheryloakes50 -> All these positive changes, are great!
 sheila -> A pain to create beforehand but well worth it.
 sheila -> Ebay - never thought of that!
 Janice S -> Wonder where the seller got them. :)
 Janice S -> looking on ebay. Suprised by the variety of clickers available.
 sheila ->
 sheila -> Absolutely!
 cheryloakes50 ->  the page with Shelly and we have to brag, Alice Barr as a semifinalist.

 cheryloakes50 -> Shelly loves these online sites, Tumblebooks an online subscription
 alicebarr (SEEDlings) ->
 cheryloakes50 -> Reading A-Z!
 alicebarr (SEEDlings) ->
 cheryloakes50 ->
 cheryloakes50 ->
 Deb Barrows -> Very cool
 Shelly Moody -> Great recommendation!  I will be checking this site out with my students!
 Deb Barrows -> Self disclosure - all A-Z books have been converted to Kurzweil 3000 format so if have access to K3000 your student can log in and read the book.

 alicebarr (SEEDlings) ->
 Deb Barrows -> Cheryl - I so admire you for doing that with students!
 cheryloakes50 -> Deb, you would have loved it, they were all smiles even trudging up hill for 2 hours.
 Deb Barrows -> You can get a free 30 day A-Z access to try it out.
 cheryloakes50 -> They told me today, next year when we go, just tell the kids it is only a 10 min. walk, let them be surprised!
 alicebarr (SEEDlings) ->
 Deb Barrows -> HAHAHA
 cheryloakes50 -> Check out Alice' s link for her google day!
 bobsprankle ->
 connect2jamie -> Oh wow Alice! That looks like quite a day!
 connect2jamie -> K-12 teachers all together?
 Deb Barrows -> Wow - it's so great how you include students in all your trainings. I wish more teachers did that.
 cheryloakes50 -> Yes, connectjamie it was the whole school
 bobsprankle ->
 alicebarr (SEEDlings) -> Yes K-12 and support staff.
 alicebarr (SEEDlings) -> Students really help us learn!
 alicebarr (SEEDlings) -> @Jamie Thanks! It was great!
 cheryloakes50 -> Thanks to Shelly for being our guest. Thanks to the chat room!!
 connect2jamie -> wow! We're in such a huge district that I can't imagine that. I was just thinking today that the culture in a MS or HS is sooo different than that of an elementary school. I've worked in all 3. I think it might be a good thing for us to do some more "together" things with all levels so that we have more of an understanding of other schools in our district.
 cheryloakes50 -> yes, connect2jamie
 connect2jamie -> So your google day looks very interesting.
 connect2jamie -> Thank you Shelly! Congrats! It was great to hear about you!
 cheryloakes50 -> This will be a podcast in the morning!!
 bobsprankle -> thank you all!
 sheila -> Great discussion! Thanks so much!
 connect2jamie -> Always a great way to spend a Thursday evening, Maine tweeps!
 Shelly Moody -> Thank you so much for the invitation and conversation!
 bobsprankle -> take care all!
 cheryloakes50 -> Night!!
 connect2jamie -> night!

 19:37:24  Debbarrows2  Got to love Windows
 19:37:29  Debbarrows2  Cheryl do you have one
 19:37:30  alicebarr (SEEDlings)  :)
 19:37:38  PeggyG  would love to have a "prize" tonight of a Livescribe pen!!! :-)
 19:37:41  bobsprankle  hi peggy!
 19:37:46  cheryloakes50  I have a Livescribe Pen, I will bring tomorrow
 19:37:47  Debbarrows2  We can show it tomorrow at the training.
 19:37:49  alicebarr (SEEDlings)  Yes Prize!
 19:37:57  cheryloakes50  Sure thing Deb
 19:38:02  PeggyG  they are fabulous for creating MathCasts!
 19:38:02  alicebarr (SEEDlings)  Is tomorrow your training in Wells Deb??
 19:38:10  alicebarr (SEEDlings)  Wish I could come
 19:38:16  cheryloakes50  Oh, yes math casts with the pen
 19:38:22  cheryloakes50  Hi Charlene!!! Welcome
 19:38:35  bobsprankle  hi charlene!!!!!
 19:38:37  Debbarrows2  Great - thanks for bringing it. I have an idea and want to try it.
 19:38:45  cheryloakes50  Yes, I love the sketches you can collect
 19:38:56  cheryloakes50  Great Deb.
 19:39:24  Debbarrows2  Yes Alice, you can stop in...
 19:39:27  PeggyG  the pens are really incredible! wish I had one!!
 19:39:52  cstanley  I've heard about the LiveScribe Pen, but that's about the extent of it. It sounds like an exciting tool.
 19:40:05  alicebarr (SEEDlings)  I wish I could Deb, but it's not going to happen :(
 19:40:11  Debbarrows2  I never wanted to go back and edit - wish I had the pen in school.
 19:40:12  PeggyG  Hi cstanley!!
 19:40:24  Debbarrows2  I realize that you probably couldn't Alice.
 19:40:35  alicebarr (SEEDlings)  Do you have to use special paper?
 19:40:50  cheryloakes50
 19:40:59  cstanley  Hi, Peggy. You know, it was Bob and Seedlings that got me started attending all these wonderful PD opportunities.
 19:41:15  cheryloakes50  Carol, you are a great cheerleader
 19:41:24  bobsprankle  hi Carol!!!!
 19:41:32  cstanley  You guys are a great team!
 19:41:46  PeggyG  Seedlings is always a great show!!
 19:42:40  cstanley  Wow! I'm not sure I can write a 3-page story.:)
 19:43:00  charlene  Hi! First time here.....I have a Livescribe Pen for classroom use but none of my kids are really interested in using it. I teach 6-7-8 year old people...what am I doing wrong?
 19:43:33  alicebarr (SEEDlings)  @charlene Great question! We'll ask!
 19:43:51  cheryloakes50  Great question Charlene!  Have you shared it with them on the Promethean board? So they can see the playback?
 19:43:55  cstanley  There is so much emphasis on persuasive writing and formal writing-prompt structure in our school that there is really very little time for narrative writing.
 19:44:21  connect2jamie  Duh...wondered why I still didn't have any audio--I was on mute! Long day...
 19:44:26  cstanley  Lots of student stories are going unheard - at least in school. It's a waste.
 19:44:43  cheryloakes50  glad you found that out jamie :-)
 19:44:49  connect2jamie  :)
 19:44:58  charlene  Didn't know I could use it w/ Promethan! There's sound? I can't find it and I'm not on mute!
 19:45:16  cstanley  I have found that PhotoStory 3 is a very effective tool for just that reason.
 19:45:21  PeggyG  This is a link to the Mathcasts page that talkes about creating Mathcasts with the Livescribe pen
 19:45:25  connect2jamie  @charlene click on the little speaker icon at top right that says EdTechTalk A
 19:45:34  cheryloakes50  Charlene, look on the right side of page
 19:45:39  alicebarr (SEEDlings)  @Charlene Look fo the little mic above on the right
 19:45:53  cheryloakes50  Thanks Peggy
 19:46:25  cstanley  Modeling is key!
 19:46:39  PeggyG  this is great advice!! modeling!
 19:47:16  connect2jamie  @charlene did you find the audio?
 19:48:21  PeggyG  sometimes the kids are just shy about talking on a microphone and may need some "play" time to get used to it.
 19:48:27  charlene  Nope. I'm trying everything that makes sense. the speaker didn't do it. I can keep reading & go to bit by bit tomorrow.
 19:48:53  cheryloakes50  click on the real player speaker,please try that
 19:49:22  PeggyG  I'll bet this really encourages them to be willing to revise and edit :-)
 19:49:24  Debbarrows2  @Charlene - are you on a Mac or PC?
 19:49:26  cheryloakes50  the itunes speaker did not work for me tonight
 19:49:29  Debbarrows2  I had trouble on the Mac
 19:49:43  PeggyG  I'm listening in itunes on my Mac
 19:50:02  cheryloakes50  Thanks Deb, no itunes on mac for me, Peggy, that is good you have it on itunes.
 19:50:07  cstanley  @Charlene - you do have to have RealAudio player downloaded in order to use that icon. It's a quick download - but be careful to uncheck items you don't want with the download.
 19:50:10  PeggyG  that authentic audience makes such a difference!
 19:50:36  connect2jamie  I'm using itunes on my pc too.
 19:50:42  PeggyG  what a great example Bob!
 19:50:56  cheryloakes50  thanks for all the help, what a great audience, participatory culture.
 19:51:09  bobsprankle
 19:51:49  charlene  PC.....Oh man! I feel like my inability to hear is taking over your show! Can't fond real player speaker. Keep going...I'll just read!
 19:52:04  PeggyG  love that thought about kids playing "teacher"! That's what started me on my path to becoming a teacher! :-)
 19:52:45  cstanley  @Charlene -under EdTechTalk A in the right-hand panel top, it's the blue icon with the play triangle. Are you not seeing that?
 19:52:52  PeggyG  Charlene-maybe you should try a different browser?? everything might magically start to work
 19:53:14  connect2jamie  @peggy me too! I used to turn all my books at home into "textbooks" and torture...ahem...I mean TEACH the little girl next door! LOL
 19:53:33  PeggyG  me too!
 19:54:06  PeggyG  Bob you always ask the greatest questions!!! :-)
 19:54:09  cstanley  I have computer club on Thursdays afternoons. The late bus comes around 4:00pm, and I have to badger the kids to quit open applications and log off. They don't want to go.
 19:54:32  PeggyG  awesome cstanley!!! A teacher's dream!
 19:54:34  bobsprankle  <blush> thanks peggy :)
 19:54:43  connect2jamie  @carol isn't that a good feeling when they don't want to go!
 19:54:47  charlene  I have tried all 3 icons & nothing. I will try a different browser. Wish me luck! Bye for now!
 19:54:58  bobsprankle  good luck charlene
 19:54:59  cheryloakes50  good luck, charlene
 19:55:06  PeggyG  crossing my fingers for charlene!
 19:55:33  cstanley  Sometimes I'm really tired by Thursday afternoons, but the kids in club are so eager, I muster the energy.
 19:55:40  PeggyG  the kids are great with the flipcams!
 19:56:25  alicebarr (SEEDlings)  Flipcams were made  for kids!
 19:56:34  cstanley  It would be great for modeling if Jen could make some videos of the kids using the technology - videos to model for teachers.
 19:56:35  connect2jamie  I'm using flipcams w/ 3rd graders in the library tomorrow. Should be fun!
 19:56:44  cheryloakes50  Yes, for sure, flip cams make it so instant
 19:56:50  alicebarr (SEEDlings)  @connect2jamie what's your project?
 19:56:53  PeggyG  it would be great!
 19:57:57  connect2jamie  Some of our GT kids wrote plays about the solar system, and we're filming them.
 19:58:57  cstanley  I recently viewed a video of a collaborative story being written in a Google doc - the teacher used Camtasia to record the whole process of the document being edited. It was quite a good idea, I thought.
 19:59:13  Debbarrows2  I love that you called it a "Celebration"
 19:59:15  alicebarr (SEEDlings)  Sounds fun!
 19:59:16  PeggyG  that is a very good idea!
 19:59:23  alicebarr (SEEDlings)  Me too Deb!
 19:59:49  PeggyG  do you have a link for that video @cstanley? would love to see it
 20:00:20  cheryloakes50 This is from our high school english teacher english class.
 20:00:38  PeggyG  Does Jen have a website with any of these examples available for us to see?
 20:00:43  cheryloakes50  English teacher has a student take notes in class, then publishes for her students
 20:01:25  bobsprankle
 20:01:36  bobsprankle
 20:01:37  PeggyG  oh thank you!!!
 20:02:03  cstanley  will search for it, Peggy.
 20:02:23  PeggyG  I'm sharing these links on our Mini-geekfest this coming week! Love these examples!
 20:02:44  cheryloakes50  Peggy, what is a mini geek fest?
 20:03:35  PeggyG  that is a monthly Elluminate show I do with a colleague in AZ--kind of like a mini-smackdown :-) sharing great web 2.0 resources and tools for classroom use
 20:03:47  cheryloakes50  OH, what a great idea!
 20:04:09  alicebarr (SEEDlings)  Wow Peggy Cool idea!
 20:04:49  PeggyG  it's always lots of fun! everyone in the session can share if they want to--very informal and spontaneous but I always come prepared with lots of favorites in case others don't take the mic
 20:05:04  connect2jamie  A mini geek fest! Love it!
 20:05:05  alicebarr (SEEDlings)  Very fun!
 20:05:44  cheryloakes50  Hi leeannep! welcome
 20:05:59  connect2jamie  Thanks for the links above. Helps me to visualizehow the pen is used in class/how it works a little bit better
 20:06:05  Debbarrows2  LOL Alice
 20:06:18  PeggyG  aren't they great links!! a picture is worth a thousand words :-)
 20:06:19  connect2jamie  interesting point, Alice.
 20:06:46  PeggyG  random thoughts from doodling :-)
 20:06:49  connect2jamie  Might turn out like RSAnimate!
 20:07:01  cheryloakes50  yes rsaanimate
 20:07:11  Debbarrows2  Anyone have one they can try it with
 20:07:11  connect2jamie  I'm a big doodler.
 20:07:25  cheryloakes50  Hi shelia, we are live
 20:07:34  Sheila  Hi there!
 20:07:39  connect2jamie  Hi Sheila!
 20:07:51  PeggyG  hi Sheila!!! so excited to see you! are you back from Belize?
 20:07:56  cstanley  I remember reading that doodling accesses some part of the brain when you are taking notes that helps you retain the information better.
 20:08:16  Sheila  Yes, back from launch and Belize!  :)
 20:08:29  cheryloakes50  Did you have a great time?
 20:08:42  PeggyG  I don't doodle but I take lots of notes because just writing things down helps me to stay focused and remember things better even if I never look at them again
 20:08:56  PeggyG  Fantastic Sheila!!!
 20:09:05  Sheila  Absolutely! Launch was emotional and Belize I shared with a teacher from my school!
 20:09:32  cstanley  @Peggy, now I try to type them into my Google Doc that I have open during the webinars - great placed to record links as well.
 20:09:42  connect2jamie  I do find that I do better if I take notes by hand in meetings, etc. I don't remember things as well if I'm on a computer. Probably my age & early training.
 20:09:42  alicebarr (SEEDlings)  Me too peggy. I almost write the conversation but then don't look at it later
 20:09:55  PeggyG  I do the same thing @cstanley but I usually use Evernote
 20:10:39  cstanley  I heard you guys raving about Evernote,but I haven't had time to investigate it.
 20:10:55  cheryloakes50  I am starting to share with my HS juniors.
 20:10:59  cheryloakes50  evernote that is
 20:11:12  alicebarr (SEEDlings)  i <3 evernote!
 20:11:14  PeggyG  it is a fantastic tool! all of the links are clickable in it and you can include video, images and much more
 20:11:34  PeggyG  and I can access the notes from my iphone or any computer anywhere
 20:11:38  alicebarr (SEEDlings)  I take pictures of whiteboards and store it
 20:11:40  connect2jamie  I really need to explore evernote. Haven't used it.
 20:11:56  Sheila  Guess  I need to too!
 20:12:03  PeggyG  love the thought of creating movies on imovie from the pen
 20:12:04  alicebarr (SEEDlings)  can use online, phone, and app
 20:12:36  Debbarrows2  she gets a free registration doesn't she if she is presenting
 20:12:36  cstanley  I should put in for PD time and see if I can get my district to send me up to your conference.
 20:12:38  PeggyG  we are your witnesses!!
 20:13:03  PeggyG  I hope you'll stream that session!!!
 20:13:06  alicebarr (SEEDlings)  @cstanley
 20:13:20  bobsprankle  will def. podcast it
 20:13:21  alicebarr (SEEDlings)  SEEDlings does a Geek of the Week lunch! :)
 20:13:24  PeggyG  powerful statement about Livescribes and IWBs
 20:13:26  cheryloakes50
 20:13:41  PeggyG  fantastic Bob!
 20:13:50  cstanley  @Alice - it would be like coming home - well, it would be -literally.
 20:13:53  PeggyG  I remember the Geek of the Week live stream last year :-)
 20:14:13  cheryloakes50  thanks Peggy, we try and stream that each year!
 20:14:17  alicebarr (SEEDlings)  @cstanley Yup and best time of the year
 20:16:26  PeggyG  Have you seen this? new Livescribe K-12 Blog from Tim Fahlberg (Mathcasts)
 20:17:02  PeggyG  LivescribeK12 has a twitter site too :-)
 20:17:18  connect2jamie  @peggy Wow! I can't wait to look over that math site. Looks interesting.
 20:18:10  PeggyG  that blog is about all kinds of uses for the pen in education but I learned about it from Tim Fahlberg :-)
 20:20:00  PeggyG  what an amazing tool!!! these examples are so motivating!
 20:21:55  PeggyG  woo hoo!! geek of the week time!
 20:22:05  cheryloakes50  Yes,
 20:22:36  leeannep  so sad i've missed most of this - tech problems at this end - I can only get into chat
 20:22:51  bobsprankle
 20:23:11  PeggyG  so sorry leeannep! hopefully you'll be able to listen to the recording later
 20:23:18  connect2jamie  I'm sorry you've had problems w/ audio @leeannep!
 20:23:26  bobsprankle
 20:23:43  PeggyG  great link!!
 20:23:45  bobsprankle
 20:24:07  leeannep  my tech guy at new school is on it. Hope to participate live next time
 20:24:50  alice barr  Ok back
 20:25:03  cstanley  Welcome back, Alice.
 20:25:13  alice barr  thanks
 20:25:13  cheryloakes50
 20:25:21  Debbarrows2  Pics4learning loves to have teachers upload pictures too
 20:25:30  cstanley  I have a ton of photos I could share.
 20:25:41  PeggyG  the citation feature is really valuable!
 20:26:14  alice barr
 20:26:17  PeggyG  I'll bet there are a lot of people doing the 365 group photos could add pictures to this site
 20:26:24  cheryloakes50  I have some photos at pics for learning
 20:26:25  leeannep  pics4learning will go viral at my school
 20:26:43  alice barr  sign in as guest
 20:27:18  PeggyG  pics4learning should be an easy site to get unblocked if you have issues with that in your school
 20:27:57  PeggyG  that is such a cool site Alice!
 20:28:26  connect2jamie  Love this week's geeks of the week!
 20:28:29  PeggyG  great use for Moodle!
 20:29:06  cstanley  I understand the app is only $5.00
 20:29:12  bobsprankle
 20:29:42  PeggyG  wow! how exciting! need to check that out online since I don't have an iPad yet
 20:29:52  cstanley  Are you really-Cheryl and Alice? Really?????
 20:30:13  cheryloakes50  I am ordering mine online
 20:30:18  cheryloakes50  in my sleeping bag
 20:30:31  cstanley  I heard there should not be as long lines since Walmart, Best Buy and others are carrying the product.
 20:30:34  connect2jamie  :-)
 20:30:38  cstanley  Very funny, Cheryl.
 20:30:49  PeggyG  wonder if Zite works on an iphone?
 20:31:11  Debbarrows2  I've tried the other store last time and no...
 20:31:19  cstanley  I would get it at Best Buy and get points.
 20:31:26  PeggyG  very wise Cheryl!
 20:31:28  Debbarrows2  I tried stores in ME, NH NY! when the first ones come out
 20:31:41  Debbarrows2  The thrill is in the chase go to the Apple Store
 20:31:49  PeggyG  so true Deb!
 20:31:56  cstanley  really? Wow! That's in[i]credible.
 20:32:11  Debbarrows2  I bet BB won't have them
 20:32:18  Debbarrows2  Yep
 20:32:30  Debbarrows2  I kept calling and calling and getting no...
 20:32:30  PeggyG  Steve Jobs is brilliant!
 20:32:40  Debbarrows2  MAll
 20:32:49  Sheila  Go to the store!
 20:32:50  Debbarrows2  I'll wait in line with you on my way home
 20:32:50  cstanley  [i]I have $75 dollars in points - but I may go for a LiveScribe instead of an iPad. There are rumors that my school might - might, I stress - be getting some iPads for us.
 20:33:14  Sheila  Adventure and challenge all in one
 20:33:15  Debbarrows2  You could start spreading the word that BB doesn't have them.
 20:33:15  PeggyG  camp out Alice!
 20:33:23  alice barr  :)
 20:33:33  alice barr  I just cannot decide!
 20:33:36  cstanley  [i]It's pelting, pouring rain here in CT. Are you guys having snow or rain?
 20:33:49  Sheila  nothing yet
 20:33:50  alice barr   I guess if I don't get one tomorrow I'll just come home and order it
 20:33:50  PeggyG  I think it's worth taking a chance Alice
 20:33:54  Debbarrows2  This has been great - can't wait to try it tomorrow
 20:34:14  alice barr  Ok Peggy you are wise! I'm going with your advice
 20:34:17  Sheila  (Get one before Cheryl! ;) )
 20:34:22  PeggyG  what a fabulous show Jen and Mary!! Thank you so much for sharing your tips and passion about the pen!
 20:34:23  connect2jamie  Thanks all! Great links and info tonight!
 20:34:37  cstanley  [i]Thanks, everyone.
 20:34:54  PeggyG  thanks all!!
 20:34:54  Sheila  Thank you all! Will catch the beginning on the podcast!
 20:35:07  bobsprankle  Thanks all!
 20:35:07  PeggyG  bye Sheila! Can't wait to hear your stories!
 20:35:13  Sheila  Alice should!
 20:35:15  connect2jamie  Good night!
 20:35:22  Sheila  Night all!

 21:17:26  Sheila  Hi Carolyn!
 21:17:29  cstanley  hi, just stopped in for a moment - saw Sheila's tweet
 21:17:45  ds  excellent, welcome
 21:17:50  cstanley  What were you doing in Belize, Sheila. I think I 'm out of the loop.
 21:19:15  Sheila  I take teachers to southern Belize as part of a graduate course at UNH. We collaborate with teachers at a workshop then go to their schools.
 21:19:26  Sheila  It's during our school vacation.
 21:19:56  cstanley  I enjoyed the Seedlings show tonight. I am not familiar at all with the LiveScribe pen. I am sorry I missed Mitch Resnick on Classroom 2.0 - I'll have to catch the archive later. Oh Sheila, that sounds exciting. What an experience!
 21:19:59  Sheila  Thinking of webcasting about it with some of the participants this year.
 21:20:27  cstanley  @Sheila - that would be most informative and interesting.
 21:20:44  Sheila  Too much going on tonight. I'm catching both of those on podcasts later.
 21:21:21  Sheila  @cstanley When are you heading back up north?
 21:22:01  cstanley  I think I'd better go make my salad up for tomorrow's lunch - going to skim quickly through Twitter and try to go to bed. If I didn't discipline myself, I'd be on this from the time I got home from school until I literally fall asleep sitting bolt upright.
