Information age schools must develop the talent of everybody, not sort out the best learners. (paraphrase)
(00:52:07) guest-2416:
How can we change our structure.
(00:59:05) guest-2416:
. But it is important to keep in mind that this will develop a teacher’s personal use skill, not their integration for learning skill. That’s not a problem. The problem comes from thinking that if teachers know how to use their iPad that they also know how to leverage it for their students’ learning…
(01:01:02) guest-2416:
(01:05:48) guest-2416:
Yes, this is very transparent, all the steps you are following and sharing.
(01:06:47) Alice Barr (SEEDlings) (guest-2968):
I hope lots of other schools take a look at this model.!

 PeggyG ->  vacations are all finished here in AZ

 PeggyG ->  doing testing this next week

 cheryloakes50 ->  oh my, those of us just about to go on vacation

 alicebarr ->  Hi Everyone!!!

 PeggyG ->  82 degrees in Phoenix right now :-)

 bobsprankle ->  hi all!

 cheryloakes50 ->  hello afuggiti! Welcome, please listen on ETTA 

 PeggyG ->  how funny! midwest by way of Cambridge :-)

 afuggiti ->  Where do i get the ETTA?

 connect2jamie ->  Hi all!

 cheryloakes50 ->  upper right hand of page, you will see  listen

 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
