This week we celebrated our 100th Episode. We talked about how we got started and moved right into a conversation about being connected as educators. It was great fun!
11:20:10 Lisa Parisi : Hi Peggy!
11:20:56 PeggyG : Hi there! Are we having a party today?? 100
shows!! Fantastic! :-)
11:21:11 Sheila 2 : Hi Peggy!
11:24:33 Lisa Parisi : Hello Scott.
11:24:33 Sheila 2 : Morning Scott!
11:24:47 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : Hello friends
11:25:35 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : Testing text color
11:25:59 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : That's better.
11:26:48 PeggyG : Good morning Scott, Lisa and Sheila!
11:27:18 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : Hi Peggy. You had a busy day yesterday!
11:27:41 PeggyG : WOW!!!! Did I ever!! My brain is really on
overload and so is my body!!
11:28:24 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : I wish I could have attened all
of the sessions, but family time came first.
I'll check out the recordings soon.
11:28:48 PeggyG : It was a fabulous conference though! We had over
450 people register for the online conference and every session had between
150-180 people in them!! I have posted the recording links so you can view
anytime. Just log in to see them all. :-)
11:29:04 Lisa Parisi : HEllo Amanda
11:29:34 marragem : Hi everyone!
11:29:37 PeggyG : Hi Amanda! Great to see you!!
11:30:06 Sheila 2 : Hi Amanda!
11:30:12 marragem : Thanks Peggy. A public holiday here do I can
stay up late!
11:30:22 PeggyG : Love those holidays!!
11:30:24 PeggyG : Hi Maria
11:30:26 marragem : Hi Sheila!
11:31:01 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : Do we have a topic today, or is
it just the 100 party?
11:31:02 marragem : My last long weekend for the year. The next
one is the day I fly out
11:31:20 PeggyG : fly out to ISTE????
11:31:28 marragem : yes, Peggy!!!!
11:31:36 PeggyG : woo hoo!!!! Can't wait!
11:31:51 PeggyG : is your team doing the tour again this year?
11:31:53 marragem : Neither can I . 6 weeks today
11:32:25 Lisa Parisi : Hello Maureen
11:32:27 PeggyG : Hi Maureen! Great to see you!
11:32:31 Maureen : Hello all
11:32:33 marragem : There is a tour again but I'm not on it. Will
meet up with them all of course in Philly
11:32:37 PeggyG : hearing you now :-)
11:33:08 marragem : Hi Maureen!
11:33:09 PeggyG : I wish you would have your Australia tour team
do a presentation at ISTE Unplugged about their tour experience :-)
11:33:09 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : Audio good
11:33:18 Maureen : Hi Amanda
11:33:41 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : hop hop hop
11:33:50 PeggyG : get ready to sing :-)
11:34:04 Lisa Parisi : Hello SAUL
11:34:18 PeggyG : Hi Saul! Welcome!
11:34:30 marragem : Peggy, I can speak to Tony Brandenberg and
Ralph Leonard about that. A great idea. Think ISTE is planning on a study tour
to Australia next year
11:34:35 PeggyG : Happy birthday Lisa!!
11:34:40 Lisa Parisi : Thanks Peggy
11:34:50 PeggyG : that would be fantastic Amanda!
11:35:05 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : hop
11:35:13 marragem : yay!!!
11:35:27 PeggyG : Reflecting is a good thing :-)
11:36:15 PeggyG : Sheila are you following the launch proceedings?
Sure hope they take off soon
11:36:17 Maureen : lost audio- is it just me?
11:36:27 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : ustream audio ok here
11:36:35 Lisa Parisi : Just you, Iguess
11:36:41 PeggyG : I love that!!! Still like doing the shows after
100!! That's fantastic!
11:36:44 marragem : Peggy, we did present a panel discussion last
year - comparing the US, Canada & OZ contexts but a session on the study
tour makes so much sense, especially since ISTE is wanting to adipt our model
11:36:47 Sheila : Yes.
11:36:56 Sheila : for the launch.
11:37:09 marragem : I miss the show we can I can't attend ...so
much better live!
11:37:10 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : its a "responsive
11:37:20 PeggyG : great term Scott
11:37:51 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : Its like teaching, lesson plans
are a jumping off point, not a script
11:38:00 Lisa Parisi : Yes, Scott.
11:38:33 PeggyG : scripts and written plans help me know I have a
clear plan but I rarely am able to follow them exactly
11:39:25 PeggyG : I really like the informal flow of
Conversations. I like having a topic but we can stray and it's ok
11:39:48 PeggyG : Hi Miguel! Great to see you!
11:39:57 MGuhlin.org : Howdy! Thx for welcome!
11:40:29 Lisa Parisi : Hello Miguel!
11:40:37 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : link please
11:40:52 MGuhlin.org : Hola @Lisa Parisi! I read your Fbook and
had to follow it.
11:40:53 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : ok...ty
11:41:03 PeggyG : @Miguel We just finished hosting our first ever
virtual conference yesterday and I set it all up on Moodle. You might enjoy
checking it out. You have to register to access everything but it's all free
11:41:08 MGuhlin.org : Wait, what r you talking about? I missed it
since my audio wasn't on.
11:41:20 MGuhlin.org : Congrats!!
11:41:33 MGuhlin.org : Oh, Dallas is horrible.
11:41:51 Stephanie Sandifer : Congrats on the 100th show! What an accomplishment! :-)
11:41:52 PeggyG : such devastating news!!
11:42:04 MGuhlin.org : Sorry, didn't mean to bring you down but
important to share.
11:42:05 PeggyG : Hi Stephanie!! So glad you could join us!
11:42:11 MGuhlin.org : Hug
11:42:13 Stephanie Sandifer : Hi Peggy!
11:42:16 MGuhlin.org : hug time
11:42:42 MGuhlin.org : Hi @Stephanie!
11:42:51 PeggyG : you are a terrific team!!!
11:42:55 Stephanie Sandifer : Hi Miguel!
11:43:23 PeggyG : Sheila is such a calm person!!! Good for all of
11:43:44 PeggyG : maybe reflection really is all about
11:43:49 Maureen : Thanks for the link to AZtea Peggy. Was in NH..
again... yesterday- missed DEN and AZ
11:43:52 Sheila : Ah but you don't ever see me!
11:44:51 Lisa Parisi : I hate working off a script.
11:45:01 Lisa Parisi : I do much better with talking on the fly.
11:45:10 PeggyG : The entire conference day was fantastic with
outstanding presentations! Having Angela Maiers and Steve Farber kick off the
day about Passion-Driven Leadership and Learning was incredible and the closing
panel wrapped it all up and gave us our challenge to move forward. It was a
11:45:59 PeggyG : I love the name "conversations"
because it suggests interaction and ongoing dialogue.
11:46:17 Sheila 2 : How many of you out there have tried
webcasting at some point?
11:46:54 marragem : I haven't but it's something that a couple of
us at QSITE are looking at doing
11:47:08 PeggyG : by webcasting do you mean the way you are doing
it? or anything online like Elluminate webinars?
11:47:17 Stephanie Sandifer : I've done it sporadically -- I don't
find it easy to plan or to produce on a regular basis -- so I am so impressed
with the team behind EdTechTalk :-)
11:47:52 PeggyG : I always enjoyed the blogtalkradio shows that
Liz Kolb did but I think she has taken a "leave" from them for
11:48:13 PeggyG : you don't have to manage the streaming with
11:48:16 MGuhlin.org : Amen @Stephanie.
11:48:39 Sheila 2 : @Stephanie - I find it hard to do all the
11:48:54 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : I've played around with
ustream, livestream, qik.... but nothing
serious. I was drawn to video..... I'm a visual learner.
11:48:56 Stephanie Sandifer : @Sheila Yes -- me too
11:48:56 PeggyG : some people actually graduated from the
11:49:07 MariaK : @Stephanie - If I can do it, then you can too.
I'm so random!!
11:49:10 PeggyG : me too Scott--lots of exploring and playing
11:49:14 Maureen : A few years back I started the webcast academy-
but was on dialup and it was just so hard to get going on it. Would still like
to learn more about how it's done.
11:49:20 Stephanie Sandifer : @Maria LOL!
11:49:22 Sheila 2 : @Scott - I enjoy the visual too.
11:49:50 PeggyG : @Maureen--all of the resources are still
available to learn how to do it on the webcastacademy site but they don't
manage it as a "class" now
11:50:15 Sheila 2 : Wow! Dial-up! Maureen that was a ways back!
11:50:18 Maureen : THx Peggy... Time is such an issue for me at
11:50:20 PeggyG : http://webcastacademy.net/
11:50:28 PeggyG : I know what you mean Maureen!
11:50:35 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : Lots of rural folks still on
dial-up or satellite.
11:50:44 PeggyG : so true Scott
11:50:55 Maureen : @Sheila- not so far back here in the sticks. I
got broadband last year or the year before. Tried satellite for a bit-
expensive and not reliable
11:51:08 PeggyG : I went through the academy several times but
11:51:23 Sheila 2 : There seems to be more interest in
11:51:27 MariaK : @Peggy - Never graduated either...who knew?
11:51:39 Sheila 2 : I'm graduating WCA after Durff!
11:51:40 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : teathering and smarphones are
helping bridge some of the dgital gap
11:51:46 PeggyG : It would be great to see it activate again so we
have a support group
11:51:57 PeggyG : too funny Sheila!
11:52:12 Lisa Parisi : Connnecting is incredibly valuable.
11:52:28 PeggyG : I remember that too Sheila--hoping the name will
come to me
11:52:37 Lisa Parisi : We need to always try to make new
connections because you never know when those connections will help in the
classroom or with your learning.
11:53:19 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : (or find a job)
11:53:38 Lisa Parisi : Hopefully all of your networking will help
with that, Scott.
11:54:06 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : I hope so. My connections are growing by leaps and
11:54:10 PeggyG : Lee was such a fantastic leader who shared so
much with everyone
11:54:36 MGuhlin.org : Wow, hard to believe Lee has been gone so
11:54:52 Lisa Parisi : It is.
But I still think about her from time to time.
11:54:53 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : I never got to hear Lee live,
but listened to some of the recorded shows.
Hard not to like a banjo player :-)
11:55:11 Sheila 2 : Hey JL!
11:55:13 Lisa Parisi : Hello JL> Welcome to our 100th show.
11:55:15 PeggyG : Hi JL!!
11:55:21 Sheila 2 : It's been a while!
11:55:22 PeggyG : So glad you could join our party
11:55:22 JL : I'm still expecting a 'Hey I figured out how to
tweet from here' message from Lee
11:55:43 JL : Howdy all
11:55:53 JL : Had to stop by for the 100th anniversary show
11:56:01 Lisa Parisi : HEllo Colleen!
11:56:21 colleenk : Hey, everyone! Congratulations to
11:56:26 Maureen : Hey Colleen, Looking forward to seeing you
again at ISTE this year
11:56:47 JL : btw, Lisa Parisi webcaster portfolio:
11:56:51 colleenk : I can't wait to go. Haven't seen anyone in
11:56:52 Lisa Parisi : Colleen, you're going to ISTE? Yay!
11:57:08 Lisa Parisi : OMG JL.
I don't think we want to promote that.
11:57:11 PeggyG : cool link JL
11:57:12 colleenk : Absolutely...and I'm even presenting.
11:57:20 Lisa Parisi : Great!
11:57:33 Sheila 2 : Great Colleen!
11:57:33 PeggyG : We should have an EdTechTalk meetup at ISTE!!
11:57:36 JL : and Remembering Lee
11:57:41 colleenk : Will be a fantastic time.
11:57:48 Lisa Parisi : Let's do a show from there. Done that before. It was fun.
11:57:57 PeggyG : maybe we should create a ribbon to add to all of
the others that we can wear at ISTE :-)
11:58:01 colleenk : Will you be there, Peggy and Sheila?
11:58:04 Sheila 2 : thanks for the links, JL.
11:58:06 PeggyG : Yes!!!!
11:58:14 Sheila 2 : Yes, I'm going to ISTE11.
11:58:21 PeggyG : We could do an ISTE Unplugged session and also
stream it on ETT
11:58:24 colleenk : Awesome...I can hardly wait.
11:58:43 PeggyG : Sheila and I submitted a proposal to share
Earthcast but it didn't get accepted
11:58:50 Lisa Parisi : :(
11:59:07 MGuhlin.org : it's so amazing and 90% of teachers (i made
that stat up) don't know about it!
11:59:33 Lisa Parisi : Is that the trend now? Make up your own statistics? LOL
11:59:33 colleenk : Sorry about that. I don't know how these
things get decided.
12:00:09 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : We techies are still the odd
mutation. Evolution will take some
12:00:14 MGuhlin.org : how are you reaching out more
organizationally or is PLNing a solitary learner reaching out?
12:00:24 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : Si usted está buscando el
podcast en español y el chat, por favorseleccione Puentesalmundo de la lista de
las habitaciones de la derecha.
12:00:27 MGuhlin.org : @Lisa Parisi Yes, I live in Texas.
12:01:05 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : I preload it b4 every show
12:01:10 PeggyG : good thing about ISTE is that we're surrounded by
people (educators) who are all advocates and enthusiastic users of tech
12:01:34 MGuhlin.org : @Scott impressive!..uh, "muy
12:01:46 MGuhlin.org : or should that be muy impresionante?
12:02:05 Sheila 2 : I still use the webcastacademy megachat skype
chat for help.
12:02:13 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : no credit for me..... google
12:02:23 PeggyG : google is a wonderful thing :-) Scott is our
faithful rescuer when someone enters from Puentesalmundo and is in the wrong
12:03:11 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : ETT was the 'gateway drug' that
lead me to twitter and plurk
12:03:13 Stephanie Sandifer : Yes -- re: Twitter...
12:03:34 PeggyG : Maria--was the early email program you used
FredMail with Global Schoolnet? That was what we were using in the early 1980s
12:03:45 Stephanie Sandifer : I thought of that last night for
some odd reason... how lucky I was to score @ssandifer on Twitter... couldn't
do that now!
12:03:57 PeggyG : so true Stephanie!
12:04:29 Stephanie Sandifer : But as my Twitter netwokr has grown
I have found that I don't use it in the same way or as often as I did when we
all first started
12:04:35 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : There is a button
"OTBO" (on twitter before Oprah)
12:04:43 Maureen : It can be... but people like Peggy bridge the
gap to newbies
12:05:15 Lisa Parisi : Me, neither, Stephanie.
12:05:18 PeggyG : just the name "blogger's cafe" can
make people feel estranged if they are not a blogger. I remember feeling that
way the first time I was it. But someone took me under their wing and I loved
12:05:23 Stephanie Sandifer : I think some of the Twitter
workshops and sessions are hellpful for newbies
12:05:31 MGuhlin.org : I still remember the thrill when I met THE
Lisa Parisi, or Peggy George, or Bud Hunt, etc. It's awesome. Can PLN building
12:05:36 PeggyG : I agree Stephanie
12:05:38 Lisa Parisi : LOL
12:05:54 Sheila 2 : I remember those feelings too.
12:06:02 Maureen : @stephanie- for me it was people who reach
out... Peggy and Cheryl Oakes, Alice Barr, etc were just so welcoming and kind
12:06:11 William Vegazo Muro -> puentesalmundo: buen dia amigos
12:06:12 PeggyG : I felt the same way Miguel (about you)! Remember
our interview with Maggie Tsai re Diigo? How long ago was that??
12:06:15 colleenk : @PeggyG That's a good point about the name.
Most teachers aren't blogging.
12:06:42 JL : lurker support
12:06:56 PeggyG : edubloggercon
12:07:05 JL : I remember - I was so sweaty - in Boston
12:07:06 Stephanie Sandifer : @Maureen Yes -- that's an important
part as well -- the welcoming behaviors
12:07:31 PeggyG : isn't it funny how you recognize someone's voice
when you have never met them before--just because of webcasts/podcasts!!
12:07:37 MGuhlin.org : @PeggyG Yes...Diigo feels old. Like these
twittering, blogging experiences help us live more in the time we have. Does
that experience of PLNing make you feel older or younger? Weary of many
experiences or enlivened?
12:07:55 MGuhlin.org : ;->
12:08:16 MGuhlin.org : We are all star-struck with people we've
learned so much from before meeting F2F.
12:08:16 JL : It is strange speaking to you all without a headset
12:08:27 Lisa Parisi : Peggy, I have had people turn around when
they hear me and ask if I am Lisa.
12:08:29 PeggyG : I'm still living that experience Miguel!! It
will never get old! I just shared Diigo yesterday in our Virtual Smackdown and
there are still tons of people who have never heard of it
12:08:36 PeggyG : Exactly Lisa!!
12:08:50 Lisa Parisi : Yes, JL> It is.
12:09:36 MGuhlin.org : @PeggyG yes, I know. Not that Diigo is old
itself, but that the experience of sharing the same tools again and again ages?
Not sure if that's accurate.
12:09:44 MGuhlin.org : Like that "don't need the small talk."
12:10:04 PeggyG : we really have no idea how our involvement in
things like twitter, FB and our PLNs are affecting others! The things you post
faithfully on Moodle Mayhem are incredibly helpful to me Miguel and I always share
them with someone else
12:10:34 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : Maybe that would be a good
icebreaker activity at f-2-f meetings. A
round table with a hub where everyone could plug in their headsets and talk :)
12:10:36 JL : indeed - but big hugs to you all
12:10:38 Stephanie Sandifer : @Peggy That is so true!
12:10:41 PeggyG : even though a tool might be old to me (shared
many times) it's the questions from people who have never heard of it that keep
the conversation alive
12:10:45 JL : and congrat on the 100th
12:10:51 Sheila 2 : @scott :)
12:10:53 MGuhlin.org : @Scott haha
12:10:54 PeggyG : good night Jeff
12:11:02 Sheila 2 : NIght Jeff!
12:11:03 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : Thanks for stopping in JL
12:11:05 JL : just a click away
12:11:30 JL : great to reconnect again
12:11:32 MGuhlin.org : @PeggyG thanks for the affirmation. We are
changed by each other's smallest contributions, perhaps more than the ones we
12:11:39 Sheila 2 : @JL comforting to know!
12:11:49 Sheila 2 : a click away - believe me!
12:11:51 Stephanie Sandifer : @Peggy at every conference I attend
(even ISTE and TCEA) I am reminded that there are a ton of educators in
attendance who have no clue what these tools are or how we are using them to
learn, connect, create, etc.
12:12:11 MariaK : Thank you Jeff.
12:12:25 PeggyG : I am still amazed every day (just as I was when
I first learned about the internet) is that so many people are willing to share
and support and help others learn for FREE online--I love it!!!
12:12:50 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : I'm still told that in my
12:13:16 PeggyG : exactly Stephanie!! we tend to forget that.
That's why I like to help with the Playgrounds at ISTE. Last year I got someone
started and up/running with Twitter right on the spot. :-)
12:13:56 Stephanie Sandifer : @Peggy :-)
12:13:57 MariaK : can't talk - tears in eyes and i'm choked up!
12:14:13 PeggyG : It's so exciting to help someone who has never
heard of something and see them take off.
12:15:20 Sheila 2 : I agree PeggyG
12:15:46 PeggyG : in our virtual conference yesterday there were
many people who had not hear of Skype and certainly had not thought about using
it in their classrooms with their students. Great aha moments!!
12:16:29 Sheila 2 : Still hard to get teachers at my school to
venture forward. I guess I imtimidate unintentionally.
12:16:43 Lisa Parisi : I deal with that all the time, Sheila.
12:16:51 Maureen : @Peggy Are people using facetime now to
connect? My 6th graders use it at home all the time.
12:17:15 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : ... the best one so far...
12:17:50 Stephanie Sandifer : @Sheila Remember the tech adoption
model -- like a bell curve... a few will jump on board immediately (that's us)
and about half might come on board with enough support and exposure, but a
large number will take much longer to explore and use this stuff -- even with
12:18:03 JL : Hard to step away, but Monday morning is rapidly
approaching. Conversations is awesome, always has been (since episode#1:
12:18:10 JL : 'night from Busan
12:18:17 Sheila 2 : Thanks Jeff!
12:18:23 MariaK : Good ight jeff. thanks for the visit.
12:18:24 PeggyG : Yesterday in our keynote presentation by Angela
Maiers and Steve Farber, Steve challenged us to identify a project called
"Greater Than Yourself" (GTY)-goal is to select someone to give a
boost and some support. "The greatest leaders make others greater than
12:18:55 MariaK : Love that idea Peggy.
12:18:56 PeggyG : I'm not hearing about people using Facetime that
12:19:10 PeggyG : http://www.stevefarber.com
12:19:14 MariaK : thanks
12:19:23 Maureen : @peggy I haven't either... just from the kids.
12:20:25 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : Facetime is cool, but skype is
platform agnostic. Newest version of
skype is rumored to work on apple and android devices with from facing cameras
12:20:46 PeggyG : entire schools are adopting the concept of GTY
projects and students are selecting their own project by identifying people
they want to support (private selection)--similar to pay it forward
12:20:50 Maureen : @Maria... I'm still waiting for our sunshine...
(although today is beautiful)
12:21:09 PeggyG : it is beautiful in Phoenix today!!
12:21:33 Stephanie Sandifer : GTY sounds great -- we need much
more of that across the board at all levels
12:22:16 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : I wonder if GTY could be scaled
for students. I like it better than
12:22:19 PeggyG : I agree!! Their presentation was so
inspiring--all related to passion and Steve represents the business perspective
and Angela the education perspective.
12:22:34 PeggyG : It is being used with students Scott. I like it
12:23:09 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : I'll have to do some reading
12:23:18 PeggyG : Steve has published a book called "Greater
12:23:59 marragem : I lost you.
12:24:10 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) :
12:24:39 marragem : Yes, anyone is welcome to Bloggers Cafe. Kids
who are experts are helping the newbies set up theirs
12:24:48 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : If there is no time for
blogging, that means there is no time for reflection in that classroom.
12:25:11 Sheila 2 : And reflection is key.
12:25:12 PeggyG : http://greaterthanyourself.com/steves-gty/ Some
great videos about the GTY projects on this site (one specifically about
12:25:13 marragem : I'm bringing in Year 1's and Preps (Kinders)
12:25:18 Maureen : @Scott- that's a sad, but true statement for
12:25:36 Stephanie Sandifer : I need to log off and fix lunch for
the kids... this has been fun -- congrats again on the 100th show!!! See you all later on Twitter/FB/blogs/etc.
12:25:48 PeggyG : there are many ways to reflect though--some
teachers are starting to use audio to encourage students to reflect
12:25:49 Lisa Parisi : Thanks for coming Stephanie.
12:25:56 PeggyG : thanks Stephanie!!!
12:26:01 PeggyG : see you at ISTE
12:26:05 Sheila 2 : Thank Stephanie! Have a great day.
12:26:24 MGuhlin.org : Whomever is speaking, we all feel that way.
at least, I do...no one is perfect. that's why the community is so important.
12:26:31 Lisa Parisi : That was Maria.
12:26:42 MGuhlin.org : Sorry...had to take a phone call.
12:26:46 PeggyG : you are such great examples for blogging! That
encourages other teachers to try!
12:26:51 MariaK : maybe we'll meet someday Miguel
12:26:53 PeggyG : welcome back Miguel
12:27:05 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : @peggy True. Some do journals or portfolios, but
these often turn into scrapbooks instead of reflections
12:27:11 PeggyG : that was Amanda
12:27:30 marragem : argh! lost me again!
12:27:48 PeggyG : I love the concept that Peter Reynolds
introduced -ish!! Don't have to be
perfect--just do it and make it your best
12:28:15 MGuhlin.org : you mean, "just do it and make it your
best over time?" 8->
12:28:22 MGuhlin.org : recursive process
12:28:24 PeggyG : excellent point Scott! I think they really need
to be taught how to reflect
12:28:36 PeggyG : for sure Miguel!!! over time
12:28:45 PeggyG : the more we do it the better we get at it
12:29:54 William Vegazo Muro -> puentesalmundo: Saludos Saúl
12:29:58 PeggyG : so many teachers think they need to be an expert
to do something with their kids and use it as an excuse to keep from doing
12:30:08 MGuhlin.org : Gasp, you're in violation of so many
12:30:24 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : Yes Lisa, but we did the same
thing with word processors, online dictionaries, and many other tech
gadgets. Eventually the novelty wears
off and we see it as just a tool.
12:30:25 PeggyG : :-)
12:30:42 MGuhlin.org : do you use your own wireless connection?
Like Clear ?
12:30:44 marragem : I only use my class skype acc when I'm
12:31:42 MGuhlin.org : Ah. Lucky you. It's about culture you're
in. Should you bloom where you are planted or move to where you will bloom?
12:31:44 Sheila 2 : I have two school accounts (for webcasting
stations) but use my personal skype contact list.
12:31:50 PeggyG : why is that Amanda? only use it overseas?
12:31:59 Lisa Parisi : I have bloomed where I was planted.
12:32:05 PeggyG : oh Miguel!!! what a great question!!!!!
12:32:21 PeggyG : I wish McTeach were in the room to hear that question!
12:32:32 Lisa Parisi : I started in a school that I couldn't work
in. I was too young, insecure, and naive
to change it.
12:32:42 Maureen : Got to get back to work outside. Congratulations
on your 100th show!
12:32:45 Lisa Parisi : So I moved to Herricks and have grown
myself within the district.
12:32:46 PeggyG : sometimes you really need to move where you will
bloom to save your own soul!
12:32:56 marragem : Peggy - like Lisa said, all my contacts are in
my acc, so just easier. The class acc allows the kids to skype me, or
Maria/Kathy while I'm out of the country
12:32:58 Lisa Parisi : I change policy because of what I do int he
12:33:11 PeggyG : aha-thanks Amanda
12:33:31 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : Wow... an hour gone already
12:33:38 Lisa Parisi : Miguel, I really would love to talk more
about that question. Maybe another
show? Would you like to join us to talk
12:34:02 PeggyG : that would be a great conversation topic Lisa!!
12:34:15 Lisa Parisi : Isn't it a great topic?
12:34:37 PeggyG : it's perfect-ish :-)
12:34:37 Lisa Parisi : I'm adding it to our wiki so I don't forget
12:34:38 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : Yes! Makes me think about the job search process.
12:35:03 marragem : it is a great topic. We have a song we sing by
that title - won;t get it out of my head now LOL
12:35:09 PeggyG : directly connected to that Scott but a bit
harder when you aren't in your own classroom yet
12:35:21 PeggyG : sing it Amanda!!!
12:35:36 marragem : maybe at ISTE, Peggy!
12:35:44 PeggyG : all right!!!! yes!!
12:35:49 marragem : oh, I forgot about that, Maria!
12:36:13 Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr) : My student teaching placements
are in virry different schools... one public, one private... One filtered, one
open, .. one urban, one rural. Should be
12:36:24 marragem : they signed in as me and not as the Gems
12:36:31 PeggyG : that's a great story Maria!
12:37:01 PeggyG : I'm so glad you're getting such diverse
experiences in your student teaching Scott. That's a great thing!
12:37:08 marragem : they were so excited gto skype the 3 of us
12:37:34 PeggyG : yes!! school is a great place for them to learn
12:37:48 PeggyG : what's wrong with that Sheila?
12:37:56 Lisa Parisi : Miguel, can you come join us next week for
a conversation about blooming?
12:38:25 Sheila 2 : Don't know how to spell it! ;)
12:38:31 PeggyG : Sheila's students did a great job with the
earthcast broadcast and it's very easy to see the guidance Sheila has given them
about their online presence
12:38:32 MGuhlin.org : @Lisa Parisi , it's a fun question to
12:38:40 MGuhlin.org : go for it!
12:38:45 MGuhlin.org : but without me
12:38:46 marragem : I'll have to take an afternoon nap so I can
join in next week
12:39:07 MGuhlin.org : i want to participate as a learner not as a
talker. let's me listen better
