    SusanR left the room (signed off).
    DavidWe smiles
    DarrenK: I've heard some of John's podcsts ... he's good. ;-)
    BjB: The biggest arguement we hear from teachers who don't know how to use technology in general, and web 2.0 tools in particiular, is that they don't have enough TIME.
    VincentV left the room (signed off).
    VincentV joined the room.
    SharonPe: yes, am using podomatic
    DarrenK: Yes, BJB, that's the number 1 obstacle to innovating in K12 education.
    SharonPe: yes, pretty easy - just upload your file and it creates a whole page around it
    BjB: how can all of you find enough time to play with these tools, learn how to integrate them into your curriculum, overcome the bugs, and still have time to breathe!?
    SusanR joined the room.
    SharonPe doesn't sleep
    DarrenK: John, is podomatic easier than audacity? DO you have the same editing capabilities?
    SharonPe: just kidding
    PamWi left the room (signed off).
    PamWi joined the room.
    SharonPe: podomatic is really for hosting - not editing
    VincentV: I am teaching audacity to 11th graders on Tuesday. I am looking forward to it.
    AllanahGst4: Podomatic rules apart from they have just started putting big advertisments on it
    SharonPe: I agree
    BjB: probably not far from the truth though, Sharon. Being an innovator is very time consuming
    DarrenK: BJB ... it's all about passion. ;-)
    GrahamW: You can record straight into podomatic but no editing.
    SharonPe: audacity rocks with the number of features it has
    PaulMRH: Podomatic recording quick thoughts - you can audio email as well on podomatic
    SharonPe: I want to know how to embed my podomatic (or podcast) right into my blog - and I am a PC user
    JohnEv: My Podcasting site is http://joevans.podmatic.com
    PaulMRH: look at http://podfather.podomatic.com
    SharonPe: seems easy with MAC (with podcast maker), but is there something similar for PCs
    DarrenK: Sharon, I suppose you could link to your podomatic page?
    SharonPe: ?
    BjB understands about passion. How long can you beat your head against a brick wall before your passion is beat to a bloody pulp?
    JenW: http://joevans.podomatic.com/
    AllanahGst4: If you have a podomatic one they let you embed it into your blog
    JenW: http://womenofweb2.podomatic .com/entry/2006-12-13T11_16_59 -08_00
    SharonPe: yes, Darren, that is what I did, but would love to have it embedded right into the blog
    JenW: You can find Charlotte's Web There
    PaulMRH: and http://allanahk.podomatic.com
    DarrenK: Chirs, please mute the skypecast?

    PaulMRH: sorry allanah
    AllanahGst4: Allanahk
    SharonPe: Darren, I did try to embed some of the html that podomatic gave me - but wordpress would not accept it
    AllanahGst4: I use blogger for my blog
    PaulMRH: allanah may be in the old room
    AllanahGst4: And it works well
    VincentV: I am working with 3rd graders this february and march to work on a podcasting unit with our third grade teacher. We have done the background research about names around our schools. We were going to use either audacity or garage band
    ChrisHa: https://skypecasts.skype.com /skypecasts/skypecast/detailed .html?id_talk=200604
    AllanahGst4: OK
    DarrenK: I figured it out ShARON ...

    JenW: Paul -- you are Podfather
    JenW: ???
    AllanahGst4: It just won't move. paul can speak for me LOL
    JohnEv: I also have a whole page of Podcasting information on my wiki at http://joevans.pbwiki.com /Podcasting. This is a compilation of resources I put together for a series of workshops I did this summer and fall.
    PaulMRH: yup I am podfather
    SharonPe: cool, John - thanks for the link!
    DarrenK: Each podomatic post has a link at the bottom called [download]. copy that link and link your text using that url.
    SharonPe: I am giving a short presentation about podcastingn to my colleagues on Monday
    SharonPe: any help greatly appreciated!
    SharonPe: am still such a newbie at this
    VincentV: Should be interesting. two years ago, our 3rd graders did a series of memories about locations around the school. Didn't podcast it, but a similar concept.
    SharonPe: thanks Darren, will check it out
    JenW: Everyone -- please remember we have a WIKI* where you can post your links
    JenW: http://k12online.wikispaces .com/January+Agenda
    AllanahGst4: Chris can you private message me the new room so I can maybe copy-paste the rurl
    GrahamW: Paual, how did you and Allanah link up?
    JenW: I tried to grab all the sites but I might not have gotten them all
    JenW: Paul -- are you Paul E or Paul H
    SusanR: I am catching them, Jen
    JenW: thanks Susan -- can you drop them into the wiki toO???
    PaulMRH: Graham we linked up accidentally I guess we became each others fans/friends through podomatic then found that we were on skype - we chatted for a while and then decided to forge a link between the schools - we skype each other from classes as well - some problem with +13hr time difference but we have overcome this
    SusanR: If not now I will later, Jen
    JenW: than you so much
    SusanR: just got in the door
    JenW: and thank you too
    GrahamW: Thanx Paul. I'd be interested if anyone has a class they'd want to link to here in Australia.
    SharonPe: has anyone foudn any good tutorials about some advanced features of audacity??
    JenW: Repeat the ??? please
    PaulMRH: We tried a direct skype pupil to pupil in November 9 we were in school at 7.30 pm ( 20 upils came back to school - not bad considering they are 7 some parents came to listen as well
    JenW: http://audacity.sourceforge .net/help/tutorials
    JenW: Tutorials
    GrahamW: Something similar to Paul!
    SharonPe: For example, my podcast that I did with my daughter yesterday had a lot of mushy "s" sounds - how can I filter that out?
    DarrenK: I like that idea Graham. You teach elementary right?
    JeanneS: Graham, what age group are you looking for?
    JenW: http://www.how-to-podcast -tutorial.com/17-audacity -tutorial.htm

    DavidWe: Why, Jeanne?
    SharonPe: self-induced blogging.... nicenet, moodle....
    JeanneS: It is easier to talk..no extra visitors
    DavidWe smiles
    JoeDa: I'm a Tapped in newbie. I started with blogging and then podcasting later having played around with Audacity
    SharonPe: think I was blogging before I knew anyone else, in real life, was doing it
    MarleneK: Rainbow MOO, and DU, then Tapped In
    DavidWe: Welcome to Tapped In, Joe
    SharonPe: took me a while to figger out the wiki thing too
    DarrenK: BJ Terry Freedman lost his username for tapped in. Can you help?
    SharonPe: agree with you Jeanne
    DavidWe: How do you get to Carnegie Hall, Sharon?
    BjB: just a sec, Darren
    DarrenK: Thanks. ;-)
    SusanR: Is Filamentality a web 2.0 app?
    JoeDa: Cheers. It's been quite a learning curve today sorting out how to do this and that, but I think I've got it now
    SharonPe: am giving a pres on wikis on Monday too
    DavidWe waves to Joe
    DavidWe is sure Joe has got it

    DavidWe smiles
    BjB smiles. Filamentality goes back a couple years
    SharonPe takes a plane, then a taxi to get to Carnegie Hall.... whenever she goes...
    DavidWe: Nice aspect o the Internet
    BjB: Sue...tell us about filamentality
    SusanR: http://www.kn.pacbell.com /wired/fil/index.html
    DavidWe is afk briefly
    JoeDa: Definitely, particularly with Web 2.0 enthusiasts
    SharonPe: ah.... it was a metaphor
    SusanR: "lamentality is a fill-in-the-blank tool that guides you through picking a topic, searching the Internet, gathering good Internet links, and turning them into online learning activities. Support is built-in along the way through Mentality Tips. In the end, you'll create a web-based activity you can share with others even if you don't know anything about HTML or serving web pages.
    SharonPe is very persistent and keeps trying
    TerryF joined the room.
    TerryF: Good morrow, fellow travellers
    SharonPe: Filamentality goes back a lot of years
    JeanneS: Welcome Terry!
    PaulMRH: Hi Pam how are you??
    SharonPe waves at Terry and gives him a big hug to make him feel better.
    JohnEv: Wes Fryer mentioned Filamentality in a recent podcast.
    PaulMRH: Allanh PamWi is Pam from UK
    SusanR: yes, it goes way back..
    TerryF: greetings, Sharon
    JoeDa: Sharon, You are from Montreal, right. I lived in St Jean Sur Richelieu for a year in the early nineties
    PaulMRH: Pam are you in Skype ??
    SharonPe: Joe, were you in college, in prison, or in the army?
    PamWi: No - want me to log in?
    JoeDa: I was an English language assistant at the Polyvalente Chanoine Armand Racicot
    PaulMRH: BJB does it run with any audio ??
    SharonPe: ah.... at a Polyvalente
    PaulMRH: thanks BJ
    SharonPe: Joe, where are you now?
    JoeDa: Sharon, did you put some videos about your students thoughts on social networking on YouTube?
    JohnEv: SharonPe - you should get the EduCause 1 page double sided handout to share with your participants. It's the first link on this page:http://joevans.pbwiki.com /Wikis
    SharonPe: I wish
    JoeDa: From the Isle of Wight in England
    SharonPe: ahhhh
    ChrisHa: any one want to talk? in skype
    TerryF: isle of wight is a brill place
    GrahamW: I'm happy to talk.
    JoeDa: I know. Everyday is a holiday!
    PaulMRH: It's fab we used to take kids to Little Canada in Wooton great fun
    SharonPe: I put a podcast of an interview with my fourteen year old daughter about social networking - such as myspace and facebook
    DavidWe used to live in Finchley, North London
    JoeDa: I must be thinking of someone else, sorry
    GrahamW: Coughing up a lung, Chris?
    SharonPe: interviewed my daughter yesterday about her use of online social spaces
    MarleneK: Thank you for all the info and updates, unfortunately I have to be heading out now.

    SharonPe: I had a video for K12 about my students
    BjB: thanks for joining us, Marlene
    JoeDa: Was that on Youtube?
    MarleneK left the room (signed off).

    SharonPe: am planning to use youtube
    TerryF: Meg's fiction is good
    BjB: Tom March and Bernie Dodge develeped filementalityh
    JoeDa: I put a video on my blog on Thursday about the conference I organised in October and used Blip.TV which allows you to have a player on your blog but with no link to the site itself. So pupils don't run the risk of seeing something inappropriate
    TerryF: And I responded
    BjB: then Bernie branched off and focused on webquests
    JoeDa: Here is the link:http://joedale.typepad.com /integrating_ict_into_the_ /2007/01/conference_film.html
    DarrenK: Got to get back to the family folks ... it's been fun listening. Cheers!

    BjB: bye, Darren. Thanks
    JeanneS: Thanks Darren
    DavidWe: Cheers
    JoeDa: Bye Darren. Great to meet you 'virtually' at last
    SharonPe: http://www.mtl-peters.net/blog /
    DarrenK left the room (signed off).
    SharonPe: JOe, looks interesting - love to check it out
    JoeDa: Is anyone recording the audio from the Skypecast?
    PaulMRH: Yup Iam Joe
    SharonPe: I am the lone ranger at my school
    SusanR: brainbased blogging http://brainbasedbloggin .blogspot.com/ a good reference
    JohnEv: Re: Social Networking ... I posted on my blog IMYM Tutorials the other day about LibraryThing - www.librarything.com. This is a great site for sharing your reading materials. Have put together a group called "Web 2.0 Innovative Thinkers" if anyone would care to join.
    SharonPe: and sometimes it is very frustrating
    JoeDa: The conference was about technlogy and language learning and had sessions on blogging podcasting, interactive whiteboards, digital storytelling etc
    JoeDa: Great Paul. I missed Silvia's audio completely
    JeanneS: Yikes!
    SharonPe: because my school is going - has gone laptop - wireless network - built-in infrastructure - yet, stuck in a web 1.0 swamp
    JohnEv: Have to head off to my daughter's Basketball game. Would love to continue this conversation in the future. Cheers!
    SharonPe: Thanks John
    JeanneS: Sharon, doing old things with new tools
    JeanneS: Thanks john
    SharonPe: will check it out ...
    TerryF: interesting to know if the MFL lot have managed to integrate ICT successfully. On a broader scale, it was an experiment which failed abysmally
    JohnEv left the room (signed off).
    PaulMRH: Bye John have fun
    SharonPe: Terry - MFL = ??
    TerryF: which I must blog about cos Sharon has asked me
    TerryF: modern foreign languages
    JeffC left the room (signed off).
    JoeDa: A lot of excellent work is being done around the country by language teachers, for sure
    PaulMRH: Very true Terry - I think that It is difficukt to get people to change - particularly if the school' hardware is old!!!
    TerryF: in my experience, the best integration of ICT takes place when the subject specialsts want it to hapopen, not when the ed tech co-ordinator wants it to
    JoeDa: It is true that we now have a lot of hardware, but teachers need continual training to get them up to speed
    PaulMRH: Or difficulties are perceived anyway
    JeffC joined the room.
    JeffC: One announcement from me (while you're all still here).
    JeanneS: Ok, Jeff
    JeffC: I will be conducting a 6 hour workshop at the NECC 2007 Conference on Saturday June 23rd from 8a.m. to 2p.m. Eastern.
    TerryF: without effective cpd, the hardware is useless IMHO
    PaulMRH: Very true new equipment doesn't mean new ideas but at least they are percieved as more versatile than the old pc's -which are thought of as WP machines
    TerryF: workshop about wot, Jeff?
    MaureenB: you also have to have a tech person that is a cheerleader to move others into doing intergration
    SharonPe: Yes, Jeanne - old things with new tools -
    JeffC: I will be using Tapped In, and several other methods for this, and will invite members to login and conduct their own breakout sessions during the second half. My proposal can be found at:
    JoeDa: Absolutely. This is one reason I set up my blog to shout about the innovative practice of teachers around the UK
    PaulMRH: Students are just doing it they don't know what its called = its the teachers!!
    TerryF: well, that is true, but I used to achieve fantastic things using really basic equipment (by today's stds)
    SharonPe: my tech support has been my biggest cheerleaders
    JeffC: http://center.uoregon.edu/ISTE /FORMS/CFP/cfp_summary.php ?formid=38125820&sessionid =40132634&ftl_sid=622a4c82914b 560ae845cd4c05781bb9
    PaulMRH: who are inthe old world
    JeffC: or http://snurl.com/necc2007ti
    SharonPe: Terry - cpd = ??
    JoeDa: Definitely. Youdon't have to have the latest kit to do good thingd
    TerryF: continuing professional development
    PaulMRH: Chris - you need to have it built in in teacher training as they have done in Scotland
    TerryF: don't u Canuks use acronyms???
    JeffC: so... if you'd like to be part of it... let me know... I'll be revising the proposal as it develops... but if you have something to collaborate with NECC participants, here is a chance to do it from your living room.
    TerryF: have what built in?/
    SharonPe: and they have decided that the teachers don't need any more tech training prof development next year at our school!
    TerryF: exceptionally bad, yes
    PaulMRH: In Wales I would be amazed if teachers are taught anything about new tech even in 3 year course!!! its sad
    JeffC: I guess your test scores must be up, Sharon! ;-)
    PaulMRH: heavy hands freedman!!
    SusanR: we lost our educational technology integrators in our school district
    SharonPe: irrelevant
    SharonPe: based on software training
    SharonPe: not pedagogy
    SharonPe: that is my biggest complaint
    SharonPe: software training for software that the teacher will never touch again
    MaureenB: yes have to get test scores up
    GrahamW: On the topic of mobile/cell phones, check out these posters from my 2006 class. http://www.bubbleshare.com /album/93869.fdb66b7a6ce /overview
    PaulMRH: Very true terry - it is essential to find how the tech works for them!!
    SharonPe: no, Terry, been there done that
    SusanR: there is some excellent prof dev right here at tappedin
    SharonPe: understand completely
    SusanR: see the online calendar http://tappedin.org/tappedin /do/CalendarAction
    SusanR: for January
    JoeDa: Here are some links for the conference plus other things we've done at my school: http://joedale.typepad.com /integrating_ict_into_the_ /nodehill/index.html
    SharonPe: my social network in the last 6 months has given me more prof dev than anything the school has ever provided
    AllanahGst4 left the room (signed off).
    SusanR: joedale100
    PaulMRH: It also needs to be something that is relevant for the teacher
    BjB: here's something to cogitate upon. Received this from my principal when I suggested a school wiki: I don't see anything that we would
    BjB: put on a WIKI that would benefit us or our kids. I feel that the teachers
    BjB: and I have enough to do already, this is just adding unnecessary work to our
    BjB: plate. I don't want to get away from the valuable time we spend with the students.
    TerryF: why do I keep getting morons asking me to exchange contact details? It's not like they are 18 year old girls or something, which I might be tempted to consider (not really).
    SilviaT: SharonPe: I agree. The Professional Developemnt in the last few months has been more than any other years combined
    SharonPe: same problem for me Terry - yes, explicit
    TerryF: lol
    SharonPe: worse than you, Terry!
    SharonPe: lol
    GrahamW: What Web 2 has done has allowed me to take control of my own PD
    TerryF: sorry to everyone for my rant of a few moments ago
    JoeDa: Here's a link for posts about mobile phones:http://joedale.typepad.com /integrating_ict_into_the_ /mobile_telephones/index.html
    SharonPe: yes, Graham - I agree - and I so liked how you showed that in your video for K12
    GrahamW: The rant was justified
    TerryF: I think k12 Online was excellednt cpd
    PaulMRH: Terry bthey haven't seen those pictures with the long hair have they ??? lol

    AllanahGst1: Pam are you still here
    SharonPe: Terry, Graham did a great job on thee social network as prof deve - is that covered in CoA?
    PamWi: yes
    TerryF: Graham, the deadline was severeal months ago
    TerryF: but I can extend it
    TerryF: I'll contact you, but what would u say yr expertise is?
    PaulMRH: Pam you will get a transcript of this conversation e-mailed to you later
    PaulMRH: keep on trucking chris!!
    TerryF: bo, Sharon, thyat would be a great chapter
    SharonPe will have to leave soon - various family members are making noises about hunger pains....
    JeanneS: Chris, I owe you so much for doing this today!!!
    PaulMRH: More drinks for Chris??
    SusanR: all registered members of TI will receive a transcript by the way
    PaulMRH: Yup - Pam is new to Skype and TI
    SharonPe: yes, Graham I agree -
    SharonPe: yes - the blog has really done this for me
    TerryF: May I mention the Big Blogger Awards?/
    BjB . o O ( don't forget that Tapped In is the mother lode of professional dev. )
    SharonPe thinks Big Blogger awards are very cool.
    PaulMRH: Go Terry
    PaulMRH: sorry it was me !!
    MaureenB: yes BJB it has kept me going in school this year
    BjB smiles...cool, Maureen
    SharonPe: my personal social network (whom I call "my peeps" affectionately) have helped me keep my sanity in the last number of months
    GrahamW: My "expertise", Terry - Web 2 and interactive whiteboards - or StartPages as a way of managing web 2 content.
    GrahamW: The only mug would be mE!
    SharonPe: StartPages?
    TerryF: lol
    GrahamW: You could also use my Idiot At Wrok badge as well.
    TerryF: url coming up
    PaulMRH: lol Terry
    SharonPe: Idiot at work badge - hmmmm.... like the Big Blogger mug better
    TerryF: lol @ Graham
    SusanR waits anxiously for Terry's site
    TerryF: here goes: http://terry-freedman.org.uk /artman/publish/article_960 .php
    GrahamW: PageFlakes, Netvibes, WebWag etc. http://gwegner.edublogs.org /2006/09/16/startpages-a-quick -comparison/
    SharonPe: one of my mentors made two suggestions - train your students - and don't wait for peopke to catch up - just keep advancing forward
    TerryF: i've just been hailed by some nude guy. Where's the bucket?
    GrahamW: Probably Big Blogger is easier on the ego.
    TerryF: lol
    JeanneS: Terry, he caught me last time!
    TerryF: it's disgusting
    SharonPe: that's what you get when you have a non-gneder specific name!
    PaulMRH: yugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    JoeDa: You have to show teachers how these tools can be used practically. The pupils don't need convincing
    TerryF: Terry i a man's name
    MaureenB: is there a way to stop that
    TerryF: idk
    JeanneS: You can change your preferences somehow
    SharonPe: but get the students on board with using wikis etc and get them to ask for the same from the other teachers....
    MaureenB: it makes me afraid to use at school
    TerryF: yes
    TerryF: by walking the walk
    SusanR: assign a student mentor for the teachers
    JoeDa: Good point. We now have three teachers who are blogging at my school and the pupils' comments have been very positive
    DavidWe: What kind of comments?
    JoeDa: We have a Two Stars and a Wish policy
    PaulMRH: True Joe - take the making the News work we have been doing the kids give up their lunchtimes without hinking about it at all - whatever the weather 15 people turn up for 40 mins every lunchtime - kids don't need convincing
    MaureenB: our middle school has a one on one laptop iniative and they have student mento
    GrahamW: I reckon del.icio.us is a good place for teachers to start.
    JeanneS: To keep out the unwanted messages....Tools, options, privacy
    TerryF: Sharon, I have done that for years, and it never fails
    JoeDa: Pupils are meant to give two positive comments about a piece of work (Two stars) and one tick( one thing that can be improved)
    DavidWe nods
    SusanR: it needs to meet a basic need
    SusanR: for teachers and easy to implement
    SharonPe: Terry, what have youdone for years? specifically?
    JoeDa: Pupils just love having their work published on the net
    DavidWe smiles
    SharonPe: yes, they do
    SharonPe: love to have their stuff put on the web
    JoeDa: We have to show teachers how easy it is to use blogs and podcasts to achieve that
    SharonPe has family members glaring at her
    SharonPe will have to go off and make dinner for them.....
    GrahamW: Just-in-time works if you have the availability and time to give to them.
    PaulMRH: True Joe ther are so many ways in now I don't think many know how easy they are??
    JoeDa: For language teaching web 2.0 tools are particularly exciting
    MaureenB: it has made my students excited about writing when they know it will find it's way on to my web page
    ChrisHa: bye sharron
    SharonPe: don't get me started on that topic, Graham!
    JeanneS: Thanks for everything, Sharon!
    SharonPe: will check in later - looking forward to seeing the chat!
    DavidWe waves to Sharon
    SharonPe: thanks for the affirmation Terry
    JoeDa: Language teachers in England are starting to blog now
    DavidWe: Good Tapped In learning, Sharon
    GrahamW: Takeaway, Sharon?
    PaulMRH: My kids were so motivated when they saw their stats when they saw that 600 views a month of their work they were so excited
    TerryF: yw, Sharon
    DavidWe: Indeed
    JoeDa: I think my blog is helping in a small way
    JoeDa: That's the idea anyway
    DavidWe smiles
    PaulMRH: With all of us I think we are there trying to kick start this technology
    PaulMRH: to get it more the norm than the exception
    JoeDa: There is a programme on Teachers TV called Blogosphere about how blogging can motivate primary pupils and their writing skills
    JoeDa: http://www.teachers.tv/video /167
    TerryF: does anyone know offhand about any youtube videos in which children talk about their experience of using Web 2.0?
    PaulMRH: Very much so our link from Wales and NZ has brought us all on so much - more than we expected
    TerryF: thx for that link Joe
    PaulMRH: and the link between myself and allanah has been fantastic - a learning curve for both of us - over 13,000 miles
    PaulMRH: and a hemisphere
    DavidWe: very cool
    JeanneS: Great idea, Chirs
    GrahamW: That breaks the Innovation In Isolation syndrome.
    JoeDa: No problem. Teachers TV contacted me in October about the possibility of making a programme about blogging and podcasting in languages, but I won't hold my breath!
    PaulMRH: I started by thinking that i could get more happening within wales - I have now realised that you have to find like minded people wherever they are!
    JoeDa: They did make it clear that they were interested, but didn't want to raise my hopes too much
    PaulMRH: Be it canada, US or S hemisphere
    JoeDa: Definitely Paul. Otherwise we wouldn't have met!
    TerryF: They keep contacting me too
    AprilPC: Our middle school admins have just created a wiki called middle school resource room to help the teachers understand how to collaborate but also help them develop a network of people to connect with.
    PaulMRH: True Joe and this netwrok hopefully will grow over time
    TerryF: yEs!
    AllanahGst1: Paul have you told people aboput the TES article on Skype
    JoeDa: At least in England, there are a few of us whereas is Wales you are the only blogger, no?
    PaulMRH: No hiding my light under a blanket!!!!
    AllanahGst1: Tell them- it's really cool
    JeanneS: Idea for next one...global literacy
    JoeDa: http://joedale.typepad.com /integrating_ict_into_the_ /2007/01/lots_of_scope_w.html Have a look at this.
    PamWi: I'm off - falling asleep here .. not because of you guys LOL... this was an experience..... for my first time but good to meet you all.
    PaulMRH: Joe I now count PamWi ( from Harrow school) as 2nd Welsh edublogger!!!
    TerryF: WHO IS TALKING?
    PamWi: LOL
    PaulMRH: lol : )
    TerryF: u have a fantastic accent

    SusanR left the room (signed off).
    DavidWe smiles
    DarrenK: I've heard some of John's podcsts ... he's good. ;-)
    BjB: The biggest arguement we hear from teachers who don't know how to use technology in general, and web 2.0 tools in particiular, is that they don't have enough TIME.
    VincentV left the room (signed off).
    VincentV joined the room.
    SharonPe: yes, am using podomatic
    DarrenK: Yes, BJB, that's the number 1 obstacle to innovating in K12 education.
    SharonPe: yes, pretty easy - just upload your file and it creates a whole page around it
    BjB: how can all of you find enough time to play with these tools, learn how to integrate them into your curriculum, overcome the bugs, and still have time to breathe!?
    SusanR joined the room.
    SharonPe doesn't sleep
    DarrenK: John, is podomatic easier than audacity? DO you have the same editing capabilities?
    SharonPe: just kidding
    PamWi left the room (signed off).
    PamWi joined the room.
    SharonPe: podomatic is really for hosting - not editing
    VincentV: I am teaching audacity to 11th graders on Tuesday. I am looking forward to it.
    AllanahGst4: Podomatic rules apart from they have just started putting big advertisments on it
    SharonPe: I agree
    BjB: probably not far from the truth though, Sharon. Being an innovator is very time consuming
    DarrenK: BJB ... it's all about passion. ;-)
    GrahamW: You can record straight into podomatic but no editing.
    SharonPe: audacity rocks with the number of features it has
    PaulMRH: Podomatic recording quick thoughts - you can audio email as well on podomatic
    SharonPe: I want to know how to embed my podomatic (or podcast) right into my blog - and I am a PC user
    JohnEv: My Podcasting site is http://joevans.podmatic.com
    PaulMRH: look at http://podfather.podomatic.com
    SharonPe: seems easy with MAC (with podcast maker), but is there something similar for PCs
    DarrenK: Sharon, I suppose you could link to your podomatic page?
    SharonPe: ?
    BjB understands about passion. How long can you beat your head against a brick wall before your passion is beat to a bloody pulp?
    JenW: http://joevans.podomatic.com/
    AllanahGst4: If you have a podomatic one they let you embed it into your blog
    JenW: http://womenofweb2.podomatic .com/entry/2006-12-13T11_16_59 -08_00
    SharonPe: yes, Darren, that is what I did, but would love to have it embedded right into the blog
    JenW: You can find Charlotte's Web There
    PaulMRH: and http://allanahk.podomatic.com
    DarrenK: Chirs, please mute the skypecast?
    PaulMRH: have i got the addrees
    PaulMRH: address acorrect allanah??

    PaulMRH: sorry allanah
    AllanahGst4: Allanahk
    SharonPe: Darren, I did try to embed some of the html that podomatic gave me - but wordpress would not accept it
    AllanahGst4: I use blogger for my blog
    PaulMRH: allanah may be in the old room
    AllanahGst4: And it works well
    VincentV: I am working with 3rd graders this february and march to work on a podcasting unit with our third grade teacher. We have done the background research about names around our schools. We were going to use either audacity or garage band
    ChrisHa: https://skypecasts.skype.com /skypecasts/skypecast/detailed .html?id_talk=200604
    AllanahGst4: OK
    DarrenK: I figured it out ShARON ...
    DarrenK: oopps.. sorry for shouting .. ;-)
    SharonPe: great stuff, Vincent - I love to hear elementary students podcasting!
    JenW: Paul -- you are Podfather
    JenW: ???
    AllanahGst4: It just won't move. paul can speak for me LOL
    JohnEv: I also have a whole page of Podcasting information on my wiki at http://joevans.pbwiki.com /Podcasting. This is a compilation of resources I put together for a series of workshops I did this summer and fall.
    PaulMRH: yup I am podfather
    SharonPe: cool, John - thanks for the link!
    DarrenK: Each podomatic post has a link at the bottom called [download]. copy that link and link your text using that url.
    SharonPe: I am giving a short presentation about podcastingn to my colleagues on Monday
    SharonPe: any help greatly appreciated!
    SharonPe: am still such a newbie at this
    VincentV: Should be interesting. two years ago, our 3rd graders did a series of memories about locations around the school. Didn't podcast it, but a similar concept.
    SharonPe: thanks Darren, will check it out
    JenW: Everyone -- please remember we have a WIKI* where you can post your links
    JenW: http://k12online.wikispaces .com/January+Agenda
    AllanahGst4: Chris can you private message me the new room so I can maybe copy-paste the rurl
    GrahamW: Paual, how did you and Allanah link up?
    JenW: I tried to grab all the sites but I might not have gotten them all
    JenW: Paul -- are you Paul E or Paul H
    SusanR: I am catching them, Jen
    JenW: thanks Susan -- can you drop them into the wiki toO???
    PaulMRH: Graham we linked up accidentally I guess we became each others fans/friends through podomatic then found that we were on skype - we chatted for a while and then decided to forge a link between the schools - we skype each other from classes as well - some problem with +13hr time difference but we have overcome this
    SusanR: If not now I will later, Jen
    JenW: than you so much
    SusanR: just got in the door

    DavidWe: Why, Jeanne?
    SharonPe: self-induced blogging.... nicenet, moodle....
    JeanneS: It is easier to talk..no extra visitors
    DavidWe smiles
    JoeDa: I'm a Tapped in newbie. I started with blogging and then podcasting later having played around with Audacity
    SharonPe: think I was blogging before I knew anyone else, in real life, was doing it
    MarleneK: Rainbow MOO, and DU, then Tapped In
    DavidWe: Welcome to Tapped In, Joe
    SharonPe: took me a while to figger out the wiki thing too
    DarrenK: BJ Terry Freedman lost his username for tapped in. Can you help?
    SharonPe: agree with you Jeanne
    DavidWe: How do you get to Carnegie Hall, Sharon?
    BjB: just a sec, Darren
    DarrenK: Thanks. ;-)

    SharonPe takes a plane, then a taxi to get to Carnegie Hall.... whenever she goes...
    DavidWe: Nice aspect o the Internet
    BjB: Sue...tell us about filamentality
    SusanR: http://www.kn.pacbell.com /wired/fil/index.html
    DavidWe is afk briefly
    JoeDa: Definitely, particularly with Web 2.0 enthusiasts
    SharonPe: ah.... it was a metaphor
    SusanR: "lamentality is a fill-in-the-blank tool that guides you through picking a topic, searching the Internet, gathering good Internet links, and turning them into online learning activities. Support is built-in along the way through Mentality Tips. In the end, you'll create a web-based activity you can share with others even if you don't know anything about HTML or serving web pages.
    SharonPe is very persistent and keeps trying
    TerryF joined the room.
    TerryF: Good morrow, fellow travellers
    SharonPe: Filamentality goes back a lot of years
    JeanneS: Welcome Terry!

    JoeDa: I was an English language assistant at the Polyvalente Chanoine Armand Racicot
    PaulMRH: BJB does it run with any audio ??
    SharonPe: ah.... at a Polyvalente
    PaulMRH: thanks BJ
    SharonPe: Joe, where are you now?
    JoeDa: Sharon, did you put some videos about your students thoughts on social networking on YouTube?
    JohnEv: SharonPe - you should get the EduCause 1 page double sided handout to share with your participants. It's the first link on this page:http://joevans.pbwiki.com /Wikis
    SharonPe: I wish
    JoeDa: From the Isle of Wight in England
    SharonPe: ahhhh
    ChrisHa: any one want to talk? in skype
    TerryF: isle of wight is a brill place

    PaulMRH: It's fab we used to take kids to Little Canada in Wooton great fun
    SharonPe: I put a podcast of an interview with my fourteen year old daughter about social networking - such as myspace and facebook
    DavidWe used to live in Finchley, North London
    JoeDa: I must be thinking of someone else, sorry
    GrahamW: Coughing up a lung, Chris?

    TerryF: Meg's fiction is good
    BjB: Tom March and Bernie Dodge develeped filementalityh
    JoeDa: I put a video on my blog on Thursday about the conference I organised in October and used Blip.TV which allows you to have a player on your blog but with no link to the site itself. So pupils don't run the risk of seeing something inappropriate
    TerryF: And I responded
    BjB: then Bernie branched off and focused on webquests
    JoeDa: Here is the link:http://joedale.typepad.com /integrating_ict_into_the_ /2007/01/conference_film.html
    DarrenK: Got to get back to the family folks ... it's been fun listening. Cheers!

    JeanneS: Thanks Darren
    DavidWe: Cheers
    JoeDa: Bye Darren. Great to meet you 'virtually' at last
    SharonPe: http://www.mtl-peters.net/blog /
    DarrenK left the room (signed off).
    SharonPe: JOe, looks interesting - love to check it out
    JoeDa: Is anyone recording the audio from the Skypecast?
    PaulMRH: Yup Iam Joe
    SharonPe: I am the lone ranger at my school
    SusanR: brainbased blogging http://brainbasedbloggin .blogspot.com/ a good reference
    JohnEv: Re: Social Networking ... I posted on my blog IMYM Tutorials the other day about LibraryThing - www.librarything.com. This is a great site for sharing your reading materials. Have put together a group called "Web 2.0 Innovative Thinkers" if anyone would care to join.
    SharonPe: and sometimes it is very frustrating
    JoeDa: The conference was about technlogy and language learning and had sessions on blogging podcasting, interactive whiteboards, digital storytelling etc
    JoeDa: Great Paul. I missed Silvia's audio completely
    JeanneS: Yikes!
    SharonPe: because my school is going - has gone laptop - wireless network - built-in infrastructure - yet, stuck in a web 1.0 swamp
    JohnEv: Have to head off to my daughter's Basketball game. Would love to continue this conversation in the future. Cheers!
    SharonPe: Thanks John
    JeanneS: Sharon, doing old things with new tools
    JeanneS: Thanks john
    SharonPe: will check it out ...
    TerryF: interesting to know if the MFL lot have managed to integrate ICT successfully. On a broader scale, it was an experiment which failed abysmally
    JohnEv left the room (signed off).
    PaulMRH: Bye John have fun
    SharonPe: Terry - MFL = ??
    TerryF: which I must blog about cos Sharon has asked me
    TerryF: modern foreign languages
    JeffC left the room (signed off).
    JoeDa: A lot of excellent work is being done around the country by language teachers, for sure
    PaulMRH: Very true Terry - I think that It is difficukt to get people to change - particularly if the school' hardware is old!!!
    TerryF: in my experience, the best integration of ICT takes place when the subject specialsts want it to hapopen, not when the ed tech co-ordinator wants it to
    JoeDa: It is true that we now have a lot of hardware, but teachers need continual training to get them up to speed
    PaulMRH: Or difficulties are perceived anyway
    JeffC joined the room.
    JeffC: One announcement from me (while you're all still here).
    JeanneS: Ok, Jeff
    JeffC: I will be conducting a 6 hour workshop at the NECC 2007 Conference on Saturday June 23rd from 8a.m. to 2p.m. Eastern.
    TerryF: without effective cpd, the hardware is useless IMHO
    PaulMRH: Very true new equipment doesn't mean new ideas but at least they are percieved as more versatile than the old pc's -which are thought of as WP machines
    TerryF: workshop about wot, Jeff?
    MaureenB: you also have to have a tech person that is a cheerleader to move others into doing intergration
    SharonPe: Yes, Jeanne - old things with new tools -
    JeffC: I will be using Tapped In, and several other methods for this, and will invite members to login and conduct their own breakout sessions during the second half. My proposal can be found at:
    JoeDa: Absolutely. This is one reason I set up my blog to shout about the innovative practice of teachers around the UK
    PaulMRH: Students are just doing it they don't know what its called = its the teachers!!
    TerryF: well, that is true, but I used to achieve fantastic things using really basic equipment (by today's stds)
    SharonPe: my tech support has been my biggest cheerleaders
    JeffC: http://center.uoregon.edu/ISTE /FORMS/CFP/cfp_summary.php ?formid=38125820&sessionid =40132634&ftl_sid=622a4c82914b 560ae845cd4c05781bb9
    PaulMRH: who are inthe old world
    JeffC: or http://snurl.com/necc2007ti
    SharonPe: Terry - cpd = ??
    JoeDa: Definitely. Youdon't have to have the latest kit to do good thingd
    TerryF: continuing professional development
    PaulMRH: Chris - you need to have it built in in teacher training as they have done in Scotland
    TerryF: don't u Canuks use acronyms???
    JeffC: so... if you'd like to be part of it... let me know... I'll be revising the proposal as it develops... but if you have something to collaborate with NECC participants, here is a chance to do it from your living room.
    TerryF: have what built in?/
    SharonPe: and they have decided that the teachers don't need any more tech training prof development next year at our school!
    TerryF: exceptionally bad, yes
    PaulMRH: In Wales I would be amazed if teachers are taught anything about new tech even in 3 year course!!! its sad
    JeffC: I guess your test scores must be up, Sharon! ;-)
    PaulMRH: heavy hands freedman!!
    SusanR: we lost our educational technology integrators in our school district
    SharonPe: irrelevant
    SharonPe: based on software training
    SharonPe: not pedagogy
    SharonPe: that is my biggest complaint
    SharonPe: software training for software that the teacher will never touch again
    MaureenB: yes have to get test scores up
    GrahamW: On the topic of mobile/cell phones, check out these posters from my 2006 class. http://www.bubbleshare.com /album/93869.fdb66b7a6ce /overview
    PaulMRH: Very true terry - it is essential to find how the tech works for them!!
    SharonPe: no, Terry, been there done that
    SusanR: there is some excellent prof dev right here at tappedin
    SharonPe: understand completely
    SusanR: see the online calendar http://tappedin.org/tappedin /do/CalendarAction
    SusanR: for January
    JoeDa: Here are some links for the conference plus other things we've done at my school: http://joedale.typepad.com /integrating_ict_into_the_ /nodehill/index.html
    SharonPe: my social network in the last 6 months has given me more prof dev than anything the school has ever provided
    AllanahGst4 left the room (signed off).
    SusanR: joedale100
    PaulMRH: It also needs to be something that is relevant for the teacher
    BjB: here's something to cogitate upon. Received this from my principal when I suggested a school wiki: I don't see anything that we would
    BjB: put on a WIKI that would benefit us or our kids. I feel that the teachers
    BjB: and I have enough to do already, this is just adding unnecessary work to our
    BjB: plate. I don't want to get away from the valuable time we spend with the students.
    TerryF: why do I keep getting morons asking me to exchange contact details? It's not like they are 18 year old girls or something, which I might be tempted to consider (not really).
    SilviaT: SharonPe: I agree. The Professional Developemnt in the last few months has been more than any other years combined
    SharonPe: same problem for me Terry - yes, explicit
    TerryF: lol
    SharonPe: worse than you, Terry!
    SharonPe: lol
    GrahamW: What Web 2 has done has allowed me to take control of my own PD
    TerryF: sorry to everyone for my rant of a few moments ago
    JoeDa: Here's a link for posts about mobile phones:http://joedale.typepad.com /integrating_ict_into_the_ /mobile_telephones/index.html
    SharonPe: yes, Graham - I agree - and I so liked how you showed that in your video for K12
    GrahamW: The rant was justified
    TerryF: I think k12 Online was excellednt cpd
    PaulMRH: Terry bthey haven't seen those pictures with the long hair have they ??? lol

    PamWi: yes
    TerryF: Graham, the deadline was severeal months ago
    TerryF: but I can extend it

    SusanR: all registered members of TI will receive a transcript by the way
    PaulMRH: Yup - Pam is new to Skype and TI
    SharonPe: yes, Graham I agree -
    SharonPe: yes - the blog has really done this for me
    TerryF: May I mention the Big Blogger Awards?/
    BjB . o O ( don't forget that Tapped In is the mother lode of professional dev. )
    SharonPe thinks Big Blogger awards are very cool.
    PaulMRH: Go Terry
    PaulMRH: sorry it was me !!
    MaureenB: yes BJB it has kept me going in school this year
    BjB smiles...cool, Maureen
    SharonPe: my personal social network (whom I call "my peeps" affectionately) have helped me keep my sanity in the last number of months
    GrahamW: My "expertise", Terry - Web 2 and interactive whiteboards - or StartPages as a way of managing web 2 content.
    GrahamW: The only mug would be mE!
    SharonPe: StartPages?
    TerryF: lol
    GrahamW: You could also use my Idiot At Wrok badge as well.
    TerryF: url coming up
    PaulMRH: lol Terry
    SharonPe: Idiot at work badge - hmmmm.... like the Big Blogger mug better
    TerryF: lol @ Graham
    SusanR waits anxiously for Terry's site
    TerryF: here goes: http://terry-freedman.org.uk /artman/publish/article_960 .php
    GrahamW: PageFlakes, Netvibes, WebWag etc. http://gwegner.edublogs.org /2006/09/16/startpages-a-quick -comparison/
    SharonPe: one of my mentors made two suggestions - train your students - and don't wait for peopke to catch up - just keep advancing forward
    TerryF: i've just been hailed by some nude guy. Where's the bucket?
    GrahamW: Probably Big Blogger is easier on the ego.
    TerryF: lol
    JeanneS: Terry, he caught me last time!
    TerryF: it's disgusting
    SharonPe: that's what you get when you have a non-gneder specific name!
    PaulMRH: yugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    JoeDa: You have to show teachers how these tools can be used practically. The pupils don't need convincing
    TerryF: Terry i a man's name
    MaureenB: is there a way to stop that
    TerryF: idk
    JeanneS: You can change your preferences somehow
    SharonPe: but get the students on board with using wikis etc and get them to ask for the same from the other teachers....
    MaureenB: it makes me afraid to use at school
    TerryF: yes
    TerryF: by walking the walk
    SusanR: assign a student mentor for the teachers
    JoeDa: Good point. We now have three teachers who are blogging at my school and the pupils' comments have been very positive
    DavidWe: What kind of comments?
    JoeDa: We have a Two Stars and a Wish policy
    PaulMRH: True Joe - take the making the News work we have been doing the kids give up their lunchtimes without hinking about it at all - whatever the weather 15 people turn up for 40 mins every lunchtime - kids don't need convincing
    MaureenB: our middle school has a one on one laptop iniative and they have student mento
    GrahamW: I reckon del.icio.us is a good place for teachers to start.
    JeanneS: To keep out the unwanted messages....Tools, options, privacy
    TerryF: Sharon, I have done that for years, and it never fails
    JoeDa: Pupils are meant to give two positive comments about a piece of work (Two stars) and one tick( one thing that can be improved)
    DavidWe nods
    SusanR: it needs to meet a basic need
    SusanR: for teachers and easy to implement
    SharonPe: Terry, what have youdone for years? specifically?
    JoeDa: Pupils just love having their work published on the net
    DavidWe smiles
    SharonPe: yes, they do
    SharonPe: love to have their stuff put on the web
    JoeDa: We have to show teachers how easy it is to use blogs and podcasts to achieve that
    SharonPe has family members glaring at her
    SharonPe will have to go off and make dinner for them.....
    GrahamW: Just-in-time works if you have the availability and time to give to them.
    PaulMRH: True Joe ther are so many ways in now I don't think many know how easy they are??
    JoeDa: For language teaching web 2.0 tools are particularly exciting
    MaureenB: it has made my students excited about writing when they know it will find it's way on to my web page
    ChrisHa: bye sharron
    SharonPe: don't get me started on that topic, Graham!
    JeanneS: Thanks for everything, Sharon!
    SharonPe: will check in later - looking forward to seeing the chat!
    DavidWe waves to Sharon
    SharonPe: thanks for the affirmation Terry
    JoeDa: Language teachers in England are starting to blog now
    DavidWe: Good Tapped In learning, Sharon
    GrahamW: Takeaway, Sharon?
    PaulMRH: My kids were so motivated when they saw their stats when they saw that 600 views a month of their work they were so excited
    TerryF: yw, Sharon
    DavidWe: Indeed
    JoeDa: I think my blog is helping in a small way
    JoeDa: That's the idea anyway
    DavidWe smiles
    PaulMRH: With all of us I think we are there trying to kick start this technology
    PaulMRH: to get it more the norm than the exception
    JoeDa: There is a programme on Teachers TV called Blogosphere about how blogging can motivate primary pupils and their writing skills
    JoeDa: http://www.teachers.tv/video /167
    TerryF: does anyone know offhand about any youtube videos in which children talk about their experience of using Web 2.0?
    PaulMRH: Very much so our link from Wales and NZ has brought us all on so much - more than we expected
    TerryF: thx for that link Joe
    PaulMRH: and the link between myself and allanah has been fantastic - a learning curve for both of us - over 13,000 miles
    PaulMRH: and a hemisphere
    DavidWe: very cool
    JeanneS: Great idea, Chirs
    GrahamW: That breaks the Innovation In Isolation syndrome.
    JoeDa: No problem. Teachers TV contacted me in October about the possibility of making a programme about blogging and podcasting in languages, but I won't hold my breath!
    PaulMRH: I started by thinking that i could get more happening within wales - I have now realised that you have to find like minded people wherever they are!
    JoeDa: They did make it clear that they were interested, but didn't want to raise my hopes too much
    PaulMRH: Be it canada, US or S hemisphere
    JoeDa: Definitely Paul. Otherwise we wouldn't have met!
    TerryF: They keep contacting me too
    AprilPC: Our middle school admins have just created a wiki called middle school resource room to help the teachers understand how to collaborate but also help them develop a network of people to connect with.
    PaulMRH: True Joe and this netwrok hopefully will grow over time
    TerryF: yEs!

    GrahamW: It would be 4 am here.

    SusanR left the room (signed off).
    DavidWe smiles
    DarrenK: I've heard some of John's podcsts ... he's good. ;-)
    BjB: The biggest arguement we hear from teachers who don't know how to use technology in general, and web 2.0 tools in particiular, is that they don't have enough TIME.
    VincentV left the room (signed off).
    VincentV joined the room.
    SharonPe: yes, am using podomatic
    DarrenK: Yes, BJB, that's the number 1 obstacle to innovating in K12 education.
    SharonPe: yes, pretty easy - just upload your file and it creates a whole page around it
    BjB: how can all of you find enough time to play with these tools, learn how to integrate them into your curriculum, overcome the bugs, and still have time to breathe!?
    SusanR joined the room.
    SharonPe doesn't sleep
    DarrenK: John, is podomatic easier than audacity? DO you have the same editing capabilities?
    SharonPe: just kidding
    PamWi left the room (signed off).
    PamWi joined the room.
    SharonPe: podomatic is really for hosting - not editing
    VincentV: I am teaching audacity to 11th graders on Tuesday. I am looking forward to it.
    AllanahGst4: Podomatic rules apart from they have just started putting big advertisments on it
    SharonPe: I agree
    BjB: probably not far from the truth though, Sharon. Being an innovator is very time consuming
    DarrenK: BJB ... it's all about passion. ;-)
    GrahamW: You can record straight into podomatic but no editing.
    SharonPe: audacity rocks with the number of features it has
    PaulMRH: Podomatic recording quick thoughts - you can audio email as well on podomatic
    SharonPe: I want to know how to embed my podomatic (or podcast) right into my blog - and I am a PC user
    JohnEv: My Podcasting site is http://joevans.podmatic.com
    PaulMRH: look at http://podfather.podomatic.com
    SharonPe: seems easy with MAC (with podcast maker), but is there something similar for PCs
    DarrenK: Sharon, I suppose you could link to your podomatic page?
    SharonPe: ?

    JenW: http://joevans.podomatic.com/
    AllanahGst4: If you have a podomatic one they let you embed it into your blog

    PaulMRH: allanah may be in the old room
    AllanahGst4: And it works well
    VincentV: I am working with 3rd graders this february and march to work on a podcasting unit with our third grade teacher. We have done the background research about names around our schools. We were going to use either audacity or garage band
    ChrisHa: https://skypecasts.skype.com /skypecasts/skypecast/detailed .html?id_talk=200604
    AllanahGst4: OK

    AllanahGst4: It just won't move. paul can speak for me LOL
    JohnEv: I also have a whole page of Podcasting information on my wiki at http://joevans.pbwiki.com /Podcasting. This is a compilation of resources I put together for a series of workshops I did this summer and fall.
    PaulMRH: yup I am podfather
    SharonPe: cool, John - thanks for the link!
    DarrenK: Each podomatic post has a link at the bottom called [download]. copy that link and link your text using that url.

    SharonPe: any help greatly appreciated!
    SharonPe: am still such a newbie at this
    VincentV: Should be interesting. two years ago, our 3rd graders did a series of memories about locations around the school. Didn't podcast it, but a similar concept.
    SharonPe: thanks Darren, will check it out
    JenW: Everyone -- please remember we have a WIKI* where you can post your links

    SusanR: I am catching them, Jen
    JenW: thanks Susan -- can you drop them into the wiki toO???
    PaulMRH: Graham we linked up accidentally I guess we became each others fans/friends through podomatic then found that we were on skype - we chatted for a while and then decided to forge a link between the schools - we skype each other from classes as well - some problem with +13hr time difference but we have overcome this
    SusanR: If not now I will later, Jen
    JenW: than you so much
    SusanR: just got in the door

    JeanneS: Graham, what age group are you looking for?

    DavidWe: Why, Jeanne?
    SharonPe: self-induced blogging.... nicenet, moodle....
    JeanneS: It is easier to talk..no extra visitors
    DavidWe smiles
    JoeDa: I'm a Tapped in newbie. I started with blogging and then podcasting later having played around with Audacity
    SharonPe: think I was blogging before I knew anyone else, in real life, was doing it
    MarleneK: Rainbow MOO, and DU, then Tapped In
    DavidWe: Welcome to Tapped In, Joe
    SharonPe: took me a while to figger out the wiki thing too
    DarrenK: BJ Terry Freedman lost his username for tapped in. Can you help?
    SharonPe: agree with you Jeanne
    DavidWe: How do you get to Carnegie Hall, Sharon?
    BjB: just a sec, Darren
    DarrenK: Thanks. ;-)
    SusanR: Is Filamentality a web 2.0 app?
    JoeDa: Cheers. It's been quite a learning curve today sorting out how to do this and that, but I think I've got it now
    SharonPe: am giving a pres on wikis on Monday too

    DavidWe smiles
    BjB smiles. Filamentality goes back a couple years
    SharonPe takes a plane, then a taxi to get to Carnegie Hall.... whenever she goes...
    DavidWe: Nice aspect o the Internet
    BjB: Sue...tell us about filamentality
    SusanR: http://www.kn.pacbell.com /wired/fil/index.html
    DavidWe is afk briefly
    JoeDa: Definitely, particularly with Web 2.0 enthusiasts
    SharonPe: ah.... it was a metaphor
    SusanR: "lamentality is a fill-in-the-blank tool that guides you through picking a topic, searching the Internet, gathering good Internet links, and turning them into online learning activities. Support is built-in along the way through Mentality Tips. In the end, you'll create a web-based activity you can share with others even if you don't know anything about HTML or serving web pages.
    SharonPe is very persistent and keeps trying
    TerryF joined the room.
    TerryF: Good morrow, fellow travellers
    SharonPe: Filamentality goes back a lot of years
    JeanneS: Welcome Terry!
    PaulMRH: Hi Pam how are you??
    SharonPe waves at Terry and gives him a big hug to make him feel better.
    JohnEv: Wes Fryer mentioned Filamentality in a recent podcast.
    PaulMRH: Allanh PamWi is Pam from UK
    SusanR: yes, it goes way back..
    TerryF: greetings, Sharon
    JoeDa: Sharon, You are from Montreal, right. I lived in St Jean Sur Richelieu for a year in the early nineties
    PaulMRH: Pam are you in Skype ??
    SharonPe: Joe, were you in college, in prison, or in the army?
    PamWi: No - want me to log in?
    JoeDa: I was an English language assistant at the Polyvalente Chanoine Armand Racicot
    PaulMRH: BJB does it run with any audio ??
    SharonPe: ah.... at a Polyvalente
    PaulMRH: thanks BJ
    SharonPe: Joe, where are you now?
    JoeDa: Sharon, did you put some videos about your students thoughts on social networking on YouTube?
    JohnEv: SharonPe - you should get the EduCause 1 page double sided handout to share with your participants. It's the first link on this page:http://joevans.pbwiki.com /Wikis
    SharonPe: I wish
    JoeDa: From the Isle of Wight in England
    SharonPe: ahhhh
    ChrisHa: any one want to talk? in skype
    TerryF: isle of wight is a brill place
    GrahamW: I'm happy to talk.
    JoeDa: I know. Everyday is a holiday!
    PaulMRH: It's fab we used to take kids to Little Canada in Wooton great fun
    SharonPe: I put a podcast of an interview with my fourteen year old daughter about social networking - such as myspace and facebook
    DavidWe used to live in Finchley, North London
    JoeDa: I must be thinking of someone else, sorry
    GrahamW: Coughing up a lung, Chris?

    SharonPe: am planning to use youtube
    TerryF: Meg's fiction is good
    BjB: Tom March and Bernie Dodge develeped filementalityh
    JoeDa: I put a video on my blog on Thursday about the conference I organised in October and used Blip.TV which allows you to have a player on your blog but with no link to the site itself. So pupils don't run the risk of seeing something inappropriate
    TerryF: And I responded
    BjB: then Bernie branched off and focused on webquests
    JoeDa: Here is the link:http://joedale.typepad.com /integrating_ict_into_the_ /2007/01/conference_film.html
    DarrenK: Got to get back to the family folks ... it's been fun listening. Cheers!

    BjB: bye, Darren. Thanks
    JeanneS: Thanks Darren
    DavidWe: Cheers
    JoeDa: Bye Darren. Great to meet you 'virtually' at last
    SharonPe: http://www.mtl-peters.net/blog /
    DarrenK left the room (signed off).
    SharonPe: JOe, looks interesting - love to check it out
    JoeDa: Is anyone recording the audio from the Skypecast?
    PaulMRH: Yup Iam Joe
    SharonPe: I am the lone ranger at my school
    SusanR: brainbased blogging http://brainbasedbloggin .blogspot.com/ a good reference
    JohnEv: Re: Social Networking ... I posted on my blog IMYM Tutorials the other day about LibraryThing - www.librarything.com. This is a great site for sharing your reading materials. Have put together a group called "Web 2.0 Innovative Thinkers" if anyone would care to join.
    SharonPe: and sometimes it is very frustrating
    JoeDa: The conference was about technlogy and language learning and had sessions on blogging podcasting, interactive whiteboards, digital storytelling etc
    JoeDa: Great Paul. I missed Silvia's audio completely
    JeanneS: Yikes!
    SharonPe: because my school is going - has gone laptop - wireless network - built-in infrastructure - yet, stuck in a web 1.0 swamp
    JohnEv: Have to head off to my daughter's Basketball game. Would love to continue this conversation in the future. Cheers!
    SharonPe: Thanks John
    JeanneS: Sharon, doing old things with new tools
    JeanneS: Thanks john
    SharonPe: will check it out ...
    TerryF: interesting to know if the MFL lot have managed to integrate ICT successfully. On a broader scale, it was an experiment which failed abysmally
    JohnEv left the room (signed off).
    PaulMRH: Bye John have fun
    SharonPe: Terry - MFL = ??
    TerryF: which I must blog about cos Sharon has asked me
    TerryF: modern foreign languages
    JeffC left the room (signed off).
    JoeDa: A lot of excellent work is being done around the country by language teachers, for sure
    PaulMRH: Very true Terry - I think that It is difficukt to get people to change - particularly if the school' hardware is old!!!
    TerryF: in my experience, the best integration of ICT takes place when the subject specialsts want it to hapopen, not when the ed tech co-ordinator wants it to
    JoeDa: It is true that we now have a lot of hardware, but teachers need continual training to get them up to speed
    PaulMRH: Or difficulties are perceived anyway
    JeffC joined the room.
    JeffC: One announcement from me (while you're all still here).
    JeanneS: Ok, Jeff
    JeffC: I will be conducting a 6 hour workshop at the NECC 2007 Conference on Saturday June 23rd from 8a.m. to 2p.m. Eastern.
    TerryF: without effective cpd, the hardware is useless IMHO
    PaulMRH: Very true new equipment doesn't mean new ideas but at least they are percieved as more versatile than the old pc's -which are thought of as WP machines
    TerryF: workshop about wot, Jeff?
    MaureenB: you also have to have a tech person that is a cheerleader to move others into doing intergration
    SharonPe: Yes, Jeanne - old things with new tools -
    JeffC: I will be using Tapped In, and several other methods for this, and will invite members to login and conduct their own breakout sessions during the second half. My proposal can be found at:
    JoeDa: Absolutely. This is one reason I set up my blog to shout about the innovative practice of teachers around the UK
    PaulMRH: Students are just doing it they don't know what its called = its the teachers!!
    TerryF: well, that is true, but I used to achieve fantastic things using really basic equipment (by today's stds)
    SharonPe: my tech support has been my biggest cheerleaders
    JeffC: http://center.uoregon.edu/ISTE /FORMS/CFP/cfp_summary.php ?formid=38125820&sessionid =40132634&ftl_sid=622a4c82914b 560ae845cd4c05781bb9
    PaulMRH: who are inthe old world
    JeffC: or http://snurl.com/necc2007ti
    SharonPe: Terry - cpd = ??
    JoeDa: Definitely. Youdon't have to have the latest kit to do good thingd
    TerryF: continuing professional development
    PaulMRH: Chris - you need to have it built in in teacher training as they have done in Scotland
    TerryF: don't u Canuks use acronyms???
    JeffC: so... if you'd like to be part of it... let me know... I'll be revising the proposal as it develops... but if you have something to collaborate with NECC participants, here is a chance to do it from your living room.
    TerryF: have what built in?/
    SharonPe: and they have decided that the teachers don't need any more tech training prof development next year at our school!
    TerryF: exceptionally bad, yes
    PaulMRH: In Wales I would be amazed if teachers are taught anything about new tech even in 3 year course!!! its sad
    JeffC: I guess your test scores must be up, Sharon! ;-)
    PaulMRH: heavy hands freedman!!
    SusanR: we lost our educational technology integrators in our school district
    SharonPe: irrelevant
    SharonPe: based on software training
    SharonPe: not pedagogy
    SharonPe: that is my biggest complaint
    SharonPe: software training for software that the teacher will never touch again
    MaureenB: yes have to get test scores up
    GrahamW: On the topic of mobile/cell phones, check out these posters from my 2006 class. http://www.bubbleshare.com /album/93869.fdb66b7a6ce /overview
    PaulMRH: Very true terry - it is essential to find how the tech works for them!!
    SharonPe: no, Terry, been there done that
    SusanR: there is some excellent prof dev right here at tappedin
    SharonPe: understand completely
    SusanR: see the online calendar http://tappedin.org/tappedin /do/CalendarAction
    SusanR: for January
    JoeDa: Here are some links for the conference plus other things we've done at my school: http://joedale.typepad.com /integrating_ict_into_the_ /nodehill/index.html
    SharonPe: my social network in the last 6 months has given me more prof dev than anything the school has ever provided
    AllanahGst4 left the room (signed off).
    SusanR: joedale100
    PaulMRH: It also needs to be something that is relevant for the teacher
    BjB: here's something to cogitate upon. Received this from my principal when I suggested a school wiki: I don't see anything that we would
    BjB: put on a WIKI that would benefit us or our kids. I feel that the teachers
    BjB: and I have enough to do already, this is just adding unnecessary work to our
    BjB: plate. I don't want to get away from the valuable time we spend with the students.
    TerryF: why do I keep getting morons asking me to exchange contact details? It's not like they are 18 year old girls or something, which I might be tempted to consider (not really).
    SilviaT: SharonPe: I agree. The Professional Developemnt in the last few months has been more than any other years combined
    SharonPe: same problem for me Terry - yes, explicit
    TerryF: lol
    SharonPe: worse than you, Terry!
    SharonPe: lol
    GrahamW: What Web 2 has done has allowed me to take control of my own PD
    TerryF: sorry to everyone for my rant of a few moments ago
    JoeDa: Here's a link for posts about mobile phones:http://joedale.typepad.com /integrating_ict_into_the_ /mobile_telephones/index.html
    SharonPe: yes, Graham - I agree - and I so liked how you showed that in your video for K12
    GrahamW: The rant was justified
    TerryF: I think k12 Online was excellednt cpd
    PaulMRH: Terry bthey haven't seen those pictures with the long hair have they ??? lol

    TerryF: bo, Sharon, thyat would be a great chapter
    SharonPe will have to leave soon - various family members are making noises about hunger pains....
    JeanneS: Chris, I owe you so much for doing this today!!!
    PaulMRH: More drinks for Chris??
    SusanR: all registered members of TI will receive a transcript by the way
    PaulMRH: Yup - Pam is new to Skype and TI
    SharonPe: yes, Graham I agree -
    SharonPe: yes - the blog has really done this for me
    TerryF: May I mention the Big Blogger Awards?/
    BjB . o O ( don't forget that Tapped In is the mother lode of professional dev. )
    SharonPe thinks Big Blogger awards are very cool.
    PaulMRH: Go Terry
    PaulMRH: sorry it was me !!
    MaureenB: yes BJB it has kept me going in school this year
    BjB smiles...cool, Maureen
    SharonPe: my personal social network (whom I call "my peeps" affectionately) have helped me keep my sanity in the last number of months
    GrahamW: My "expertise", Terry - Web 2 and interactive whiteboards - or StartPages as a way of managing web 2 content.
    GrahamW: The only mug would be mE!
    SharonPe: StartPages?
    TerryF: lol
    GrahamW: You could also use my Idiot At Wrok badge as well.
    TerryF: url coming up
    PaulMRH: lol Terry
    SharonPe: Idiot at work badge - hmmmm.... like the Big Blogger mug better
    TerryF: lol @ Graham
    SusanR waits anxiously for Terry's site
    TerryF: here goes: http://terry-freedman.org.uk /artman/publish/article_960 .php
    GrahamW: PageFlakes, Netvibes, WebWag etc. http://gwegner.edublogs.org /2006/09/16/startpages-a-quick -comparison/
    SharonPe: one of my mentors made two suggestions - train your students - and don't wait for peopke to catch up - just keep advancing forward
    TerryF: i've just been hailed by some nude guy. Where's the bucket?
    GrahamW: Probably Big Blogger is easier on the ego.
    TerryF: lol
    JeanneS: Terry, he caught me last time!
    TerryF: it's disgusting
    SharonPe: that's what you get when you have a non-gneder specific name!
    PaulMRH: yugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    JoeDa: You have to show teachers how these tools can be used practically. The pupils don't need convincing
    TerryF: Terry i a man's name
    MaureenB: is there a way to stop that
    TerryF: idk
    JeanneS: You can change your preferences somehow
    SharonPe: but get the students on board with using wikis etc and get them to ask for the same from the other teachers....
    MaureenB: it makes me afraid to use at school
    TerryF: yes
    TerryF: by walking the walk
    SusanR: assign a student mentor for the teachers
    JoeDa: Good point. We now have three teachers who are blogging at my school and the pupils' comments have been very positive
    DavidWe: What kind of comments?
    JoeDa: We have a Two Stars and a Wish policy
    PaulMRH: True Joe - take the making the News work we have been doing the kids give up their lunchtimes without hinking about it at all - whatever the weather 15 people turn up for 40 mins every lunchtime - kids don't need convincing
    MaureenB: our middle school has a one on one laptop iniative and they have student mento
    GrahamW: I reckon del.icio.us is a good place for teachers to start.
    JeanneS: To keep out the unwanted messages....Tools, options, privacy
    TerryF: Sharon, I have done that for years, and it never fails
    JoeDa: Pupils are meant to give two positive comments about a piece of work (Two stars) and one tick( one thing that can be improved)
    DavidWe nods
    SusanR: it needs to meet a basic need
    SusanR: for teachers and easy to implement
    SharonPe: Terry, what have youdone for years? specifically?
    JoeDa: Pupils just love having their work published on the net
    DavidWe smiles
    SharonPe: yes, they do
    SharonPe: love to have their stuff put on the web
    JoeDa: We have to show teachers how easy it is to use blogs and podcasts to achieve that
    SharonPe has family members glaring at her
    SharonPe will have to go off and make dinner for them.....
    GrahamW: Just-in-time works if you have the availability and time to give to them.
    PaulMRH: True Joe ther are so many ways in now I don't think many know how easy they are??
    JoeDa: For language teaching web 2.0 tools are particularly exciting
    MaureenB: it has made my students excited about writing when they know it will find it's way on to my web page
    ChrisHa: bye sharron
    SharonPe: don't get me started on that topic, Graham!
    JeanneS: Thanks for everything, Sharon!
    SharonPe: will check in later - looking forward to seeing the chat!
    DavidWe waves to Sharon
    SharonPe: thanks for the affirmation Terry
    JoeDa: Language teachers in England are starting to blog now
    DavidWe: Good Tapped In learning, Sharon
    GrahamW: Takeaway, Sharon?
    PaulMRH: My kids were so motivated when they saw their stats when they saw that 600 views a month of their work they were so excited
    TerryF: yw, Sharon
    DavidWe: Indeed
    JoeDa: I think my blog is helping in a small way
    JoeDa: That's the idea anyway
    DavidWe smiles
    PaulMRH: With all of us I think we are there trying to kick start this technology
    PaulMRH: to get it more the norm than the exception
    JoeDa: There is a programme on Teachers TV called Blogosphere about how blogging can motivate primary pupils and their writing skills
    JoeDa: http://www.teachers.tv/video /167
    TerryF: does anyone know offhand about any youtube videos in which children talk about their experience of using Web 2.0?
    PaulMRH: Very much so our link from Wales and NZ has brought us all on so much - more than we expected
    TerryF: thx for that link Joe
    PaulMRH: and the link between myself and allanah has been fantastic - a learning curve for both of us - over 13,000 miles
    PaulMRH: and a hemisphere
    DavidWe: very cool
    JeanneS: Great idea, Chirs
    GrahamW: That breaks the Innovation In Isolation syndrome.
    JoeDa: No problem. Teachers TV contacted me in October about the possibility of making a programme about blogging and podcasting in languages, but I won't hold my breath!
    PaulMRH: I started by thinking that i could get more happening within wales - I have now realised that you have to find like minded people wherever they are!
    JoeDa: They did make it clear that they were interested, but didn't want to raise my hopes too much
    PaulMRH: Be it canada, US or S hemisphere
    JoeDa: Definitely Paul. Otherwise we wouldn't have met!
    TerryF: They keep contacting me too
    AprilPC: Our middle school admins have just created a wiki called middle school resource room to help the teachers understand how to collaborate but also help them develop a network of people to connect with.
    PaulMRH: True Joe and this netwrok hopefully will grow over time
    TerryF: yEs!
    AllanahGst1: Paul have you told people aboput the TES article on Skype
    JoeDa: At least in England, there are a few of us whereas is Wales you are the only blogger, no?
    PaulMRH: No hiding my light under a blanket!!!!
    AllanahGst1: Tell them- it's really cool
    JeanneS: Idea for next one...global literacy
    JoeDa: http://joedale.typepad.com /integrating_ict_into_the_ /2007/01/lots_of_scope_w.html Have a look at this.
    PamWi: I'm off - falling asleep here .. not because of you guys LOL... this was an experience..... for my first time but good to meet you all.

    GrahamW: It would be 4 am here.

    SharonPe: don't think I see you....
    JenW: Darren -- did you get the NEW link??
    GrahamW: Darren I think you are in the old room.
    ChrisHa: https://skypecasts.skype.com /skypecasts/skypecast/detailed .html?id_talk=200604
    JenW: Thanks Chris
    GrahamW: I was in there b4.
    SharonPe: yes, Darren - don't believe you are in the right room - don't see you
    DarrenK: I got it off the wiki. I'll try the one Chris just pasted.
    JenW: I have created 5 podcasts with people -- and 1 podcast with students
    JenW: (LOL -- not meaning that students are NOT people)
    JenW: and our goal is to create a podcast for Mother's Day with a group of First Graders
    JeanneS: Silvia, are you in the new skype room
    SilviaT: I got kicked out several times.
    PaulMRH: Hi gang back in sound and almost in vision??
    JohnEv: I have taught several sessions on How to Podcast and have done 3-4 with or/for students. I used Audacity on a PC then used PodOmatic for my hosting.
    AllanahGst4: I am in the old room and can hear you fine
    SharonPe: hang in there, Sylvia
    SharonPe: keep trying
    SilviaT: I need to leave for a few minutes, but plan on rejoining
    PaulMRH: Allanah that's a skype thing - it happened last time as well
    ChrisHa: https://skypecasts.skype.com /skypecasts/skypecast/detailed .html?id_talk=200604

    DarrenK: Thanks. ;)
    SusanR left the room (signed off).
    DavidWe smiles
    DarrenK: I've heard some of John's podcsts ... he's good. ;-)
    BjB: The biggest arguement we hear from teachers who don't know how to use technology in general, and web 2.0 tools in particiular, is that they don't have enough TIME.
    VincentV left the room (signed off).
    VincentV joined the room.
    SharonPe: yes, am using podomatic
    DarrenK: Yes, BJB, that's the number 1 obstacle to innovating in K12 education.
    SharonPe: yes, pretty easy - just upload your file and it creates a whole page around it
    BjB: how can all of you find enough time to play with these tools, learn how to integrate them into your curriculum, overcome the bugs, and still have time to breathe!?
    SusanR joined the room.
    SharonPe doesn't sleep
    DarrenK: John, is podomatic easier than audacity? DO you have the same editing capabilities?
    SharonPe: just kidding
    PamWi left the room (signed off).
    PamWi joined the room.
    SharonPe: podomatic is really for hosting - not editing
    VincentV: I am teaching audacity to 11th graders on Tuesday. I am looking forward to it.
    AllanahGst4: Podomatic rules apart from they have just started putting big advertisments on it
    SharonPe: I agree
    BjB: probably not far from the truth though, Sharon. Being an innovator is very time consuming
    DarrenK: BJB ... it's all about passion. ;-)
    GrahamW: You can record straight into podomatic but no editing.
    SharonPe: audacity rocks with the number of features it has
    PaulMRH: Podomatic recording quick thoughts - you can audio email as well on podomatic
    SharonPe: I want to know how to embed my podomatic (or podcast) right into my blog - and I am a PC user
    JohnEv: My Podcasting site is http://joevans.podmatic.com
    PaulMRH: look at http://podfather.podomatic.com
    SharonPe: seems easy with MAC (with podcast maker), but is there something similar for PCs
    DarrenK: Sharon, I suppose you could link to your podomatic page?
    SharonPe: ?
    BjB understands about passion. How long can you beat your head against a brick wall before your passion is beat to a bloody pulp?
    JenW: http://joevans.podomatic.com/
    AllanahGst4: If you have a podomatic one they let you embed it into your blog
    JenW: http://womenofweb2.podomatic .com/entry/2006-12-13T11_16_59 -08_00
    SharonPe: yes, Darren, that is what I did, but would love to have it embedded right into the blog
    JenW: You can find Charlotte's Web There
    PaulMRH: and http://allanahk.podomatic.com
    DarrenK: Chirs, please mute the skypecast?

    PaulMRH: sorry allanah
    AllanahGst4: Allanahk
    SharonPe: Darren, I did try to embed some of the html that podomatic gave me - but wordpress would not accept it
    AllanahGst4: I use blogger for my blog
    PaulMRH: allanah may be in the old room
    AllanahGst4: And it works well
    VincentV: I am working with 3rd graders this february and march to work on a podcasting unit with our third grade teacher. We have done the background research about names around our schools. We were going to use either audacity or garage band
    ChrisHa: https://skypecasts.skype.com /skypecasts/skypecast/detailed .html?id_talk=200604
    AllanahGst4: OK
    DarrenK: I figured it out ShARON ...
    DarrenK: oopps.. sorry for shouting .. ;-)
    SharonPe: great stuff, Vincent - I love to hear elementary students podcasting!
    JenW: Paul -- you are Podfather
    JenW: ???
    AllanahGst4: It just won't move. paul can speak for me LOL
    JohnEv: I also have a whole page of Podcasting information on my wiki at http://joevans.pbwiki.com /Podcasting. This is a compilation of resources I put together for a series of workshops I did this summer and fall.
    PaulMRH: yup I am podfather
    SharonPe: cool, John - thanks for the link!
    DarrenK: Each podomatic post has a link at the bottom called [download]. copy that link and link your text using that url.
    SharonPe: I am giving a short presentation about podcastingn to my colleagues on Monday
    SharonPe: any help greatly appreciated!
    SharonPe: am still such a newbie at this
    VincentV: Should be interesting. two years ago, our 3rd graders did a series of memories about locations around the school. Didn't podcast it, but a similar concept.
    SharonPe: thanks Darren, will check it out
    JenW: Everyone -- please remember we have a WIKI* where you can post your links
    JenW: http://k12online.wikispaces .com/January+Agenda
    AllanahGst4: Chris can you private message me the new room so I can maybe copy-paste the rurl
    GrahamW: Paual, how did you and Allanah link up?
    JenW: I tried to grab all the sites but I might not have gotten them all
    JenW: Paul -- are you Paul E or Paul H
    SusanR: I am catching them, Jen
    JenW: thanks Susan -- can you drop them into the wiki toO???
    PaulMRH: Graham we linked up accidentally I guess we became each others fans/friends through podomatic then found that we were on skype - we chatted for a while and then decided to forge a link between the schools - we skype each other from classes as well - some problem with +13hr time difference but we have overcome this
    SusanR: If not now I will later, Jen
    JenW: than you so much
    SusanR: just got in the door
    JenW: and thank you too
    GrahamW: Thanx Paul. I'd be interested if anyone has a class they'd want to link to here in Australia.
    SharonPe: has anyone foudn any good tutorials about some advanced features of audacity??
    JenW: Repeat the ??? please
    PaulMRH: We tried a direct skype pupil to pupil in November 9 we were in school at 7.30 pm ( 20 upils came back to school - not bad considering they are 7 some parents came to listen as well
    JenW: http://audacity.sourceforge .net/help/tutorials
    JenW: Tutorials
    GrahamW: Something similar to Paul!
    SharonPe: For example, my podcast that I did with my daughter yesterday had a lot of mushy "s" sounds - how can I filter that out?
    DarrenK: I like that idea Graham. You teach elementary right?
    JeanneS: Graham, what age group are you looking for?
    JenW: http://www.how-to-podcast -tutorial.com/17-audacity -tutorial.htm

    DarrenK: A link to my whiplash! workshop which deals with RSS, Social Bookmarking, Wikis, Podcasting and other Cool Tools ... http://whiplash.pbwiki.com

    JeanneS: I wish we could do this as an Elluminate session
    DavidWe: Why, Jeanne?
    SharonPe: self-induced blogging.... nicenet, moodle....
    JeanneS: It is easier to talk..no extra visitors
    DavidWe smiles
    JoeDa: I'm a Tapped in newbie. I started with blogging and then podcasting later having played around with Audacity
    SharonPe: think I was blogging before I knew anyone else, in real life, was doing it
    MarleneK: Rainbow MOO, and DU, then Tapped In
    DavidWe: Welcome to Tapped In, Joe
    SharonPe: took me a while to figger out the wiki thing too
    DarrenK: BJ Terry Freedman lost his username for tapped in. Can you help?
    SharonPe: agree with you Jeanne
    DavidWe: How do you get to Carnegie Hall, Sharon?
    BjB: just a sec, Darren
    DarrenK: Thanks. ;-)
    SusanR: Is Filamentality a web 2.0 app?
    JoeDa: Cheers. It's been quite a learning curve today sorting out how to do this and that, but I think I've got it now
    SharonPe: am giving a pres on wikis on Monday too
    DavidWe waves to Joe
    DavidWe is sure Joe has got it
    DarrenK: I think Filamentality is a bridge .... web 1.5 ;-)
    BjB: Terry's username is TerryF
    SharonPe: DavidWe - is that a riddle?

    DavidWe smiles
    BjB smiles. Filamentality goes back a couple years
    SharonPe takes a plane, then a taxi to get to Carnegie Hall.... whenever she goes...
    DavidWe: Nice aspect o the Internet
    BjB: Sue...tell us about filamentality
    SusanR: http://www.kn.pacbell.com /wired/fil/index.html
    DavidWe is afk briefly
    JoeDa: Definitely, particularly with Web 2.0 enthusiasts
    SharonPe: ah.... it was a metaphor
    SusanR: "lamentality is a fill-in-the-blank tool that guides you through picking a topic, searching the Internet, gathering good Internet links, and turning them into online learning activities. Support is built-in along the way through Mentality Tips. In the end, you'll create a web-based activity you can share with others even if you don't know anything about HTML or serving web pages.
    SharonPe is very persistent and keeps trying
    TerryF joined the room.
    TerryF: Good morrow, fellow travellers
    SharonPe: Filamentality goes back a lot of years
    JeanneS: Welcome Terry!
    PaulMRH: Hi Pam how are you??
    SharonPe waves at Terry and gives him a big hug to make him feel better.
    JohnEv: Wes Fryer mentioned Filamentality in a recent podcast.
    PaulMRH: Allanh PamWi is Pam from UK
    SusanR: yes, it goes way back..
    TerryF: greetings, Sharon
    JoeDa: Sharon, You are from Montreal, right. I lived in St Jean Sur Richelieu for a year in the early nineties
    PaulMRH: Pam are you in Skype ??
    SharonPe: Joe, were you in college, in prison, or in the army?
    PamWi: No - want me to log in?
    JoeDa: I was an English language assistant at the Polyvalente Chanoine Armand Racicot
    PaulMRH: BJB does it run with any audio ??
    SharonPe: ah.... at a Polyvalente
    PaulMRH: thanks BJ
    SharonPe: Joe, where are you now?
    JoeDa: Sharon, did you put some videos about your students thoughts on social networking on YouTube?
    JohnEv: SharonPe - you should get the EduCause 1 page double sided handout to share with your participants. It's the first link on this page:http://joevans.pbwiki.com /Wikis
    SharonPe: I wish
    JoeDa: From the Isle of Wight in England
    SharonPe: ahhhh
    ChrisHa: any one want to talk? in skype
    TerryF: isle of wight is a brill place
    GrahamW: I'm happy to talk.
    JoeDa: I know. Everyday is a holiday!
    PaulMRH: It's fab we used to take kids to Little Canada in Wooton great fun
    SharonPe: I put a podcast of an interview with my fourteen year old daughter about social networking - such as myspace and facebook
    DavidWe used to live in Finchley, North London
    JoeDa: I must be thinking of someone else, sorry
    GrahamW: Coughing up a lung, Chris?
    SharonPe: interviewed my daughter yesterday about her use of online social spaces
    MarleneK: Thank you for all the info and updates, unfortunately I have to be heading out now.
    ChrisHa: wasn't me

    SharonPe: am planning to use youtube
    TerryF: Meg's fiction is good
    BjB: Tom March and Bernie Dodge develeped filementalityh
    JoeDa: I put a video on my blog on Thursday about the conference I organised in October and used Blip.TV which allows you to have a player on your blog but with no link to the site itself. So pupils don't run the risk of seeing something inappropriate
    TerryF: And I responded
    BjB: then Bernie branched off and focused on webquests
    JoeDa: Here is the link:http://joedale.typepad.com /integrating_ict_into_the_ /2007/01/conference_film.html

    BjB: bye, Darren. Thanks
    JeanneS: Thanks Darren
    DavidWe: Cheers
    JoeDa: Bye Darren. Great to meet you 'virtually' at last
    SharonPe: http://www.mtl-peters.net/blog /
    DarrenK left the room (signed off).
    SharonPe: JOe, looks interesting - love to check it out
    JoeDa: Is anyone recording the audio from the Skypecast?
    PaulMRH: Yup Iam Joe
    SharonPe: I am the lone ranger at my school
    SusanR: brainbased blogging http://brainbasedbloggin .blogspot.com/ a good reference
    JohnEv: Re: Social Networking ... I posted on my blog IMYM Tutorials the other day about LibraryThing - www.librarything.com. This is a great site for sharing your reading materials. Have put together a group called "Web 2.0 Innovative Thinkers" if anyone would care to join.
    SharonPe: and sometimes it is very frustrating
    JoeDa: The conference was about technlogy and language learning and had sessions on blogging podcasting, interactive whiteboards, digital storytelling etc
    JoeDa: Great Paul. I missed Silvia's audio completely
    JeanneS: Yikes!
    SharonPe: because my school is going - has gone laptop - wireless network - built-in infrastructure - yet, stuck in a web 1.0 swamp
    JohnEv: Have to head off to my daughter's Basketball game. Would love to continue this conversation in the future. Cheers!
    SharonPe: Thanks John
    JeanneS: Sharon, doing old things with new tools
    JeanneS: Thanks john
    SharonPe: will check it out ...
    TerryF: interesting to know if the MFL lot have managed to integrate ICT successfully. On a broader scale, it was an experiment which failed abysmally
    JohnEv left the room (signed off).
    PaulMRH: Bye John have fun
    SharonPe: Terry - MFL = ??
    TerryF: which I must blog about cos Sharon has asked me
    TerryF: modern foreign languages
    JeffC left the room (signed off).
    JoeDa: A lot of excellent work is being done around the country by language teachers, for sure
    PaulMRH: Very true Terry - I think that It is difficukt to get people to change - particularly if the school' hardware is old!!!
    TerryF: in my experience, the best integration of ICT takes place when the subject specialsts want it to hapopen, not when the ed tech co-ordinator wants it to
    JoeDa: It is true that we now have a lot of hardware, but teachers need continual training to get them up to speed
    PaulMRH: Or difficulties are perceived anyway
    JeffC joined the room.
    JeffC: One announcement from me (while you're all still here).
    JeanneS: Ok, Jeff
    JeffC: I will be conducting a 6 hour workshop at the NECC 2007 Conference on Saturday June 23rd from 8a.m. to 2p.m. Eastern.
    TerryF: without effective cpd, the hardware is useless IMHO
    PaulMRH: Very true new equipment doesn't mean new ideas but at least they are percieved as more versatile than the old pc's -which are thought of as WP machines
    TerryF: workshop about wot, Jeff?
    MaureenB: you also have to have a tech person that is a cheerleader to move others into doing intergration
    SharonPe: Yes, Jeanne - old things with new tools -
    JeffC: I will be using Tapped In, and several other methods for this, and will invite members to login and conduct their own breakout sessions during the second half. My proposal can be found at:
    JoeDa: Absolutely. This is one reason I set up my blog to shout about the innovative practice of teachers around the UK
    PaulMRH: Students are just doing it they don't know what its called = its the teachers!!
    TerryF: well, that is true, but I used to achieve fantastic things using really basic equipment (by today's stds)
    SharonPe: my tech support has been my biggest cheerleaders
    JeffC: http://center.uoregon.edu/ISTE /FORMS/CFP/cfp_summary.php ?formid=38125820&sessionid =40132634&ftl_sid=622a4c82914b 560ae845cd4c05781bb9
    PaulMRH: who are inthe old world
    JeffC: or http://snurl.com/necc2007ti
    SharonPe: Terry - cpd = ??
    JoeDa: Definitely. Youdon't have to have the latest kit to do good thingd
    TerryF: continuing professional development
    PaulMRH: Chris - you need to have it built in in teacher training as they have done in Scotland
    TerryF: don't u Canuks use acronyms???
    JeffC: so... if you'd like to be part of it... let me know... I'll be revising the proposal as it develops... but if you have something to collaborate with NECC participants, here is a chance to do it from your living room.
    TerryF: have what built in?/
    SharonPe: and they have decided that the teachers don't need any more tech training prof development next year at our school!
    TerryF: exceptionally bad, yes
    PaulMRH: In Wales I would be amazed if teachers are taught anything about new tech even in 3 year course!!! its sad
    JeffC: I guess your test scores must be up, Sharon! ;-)
    PaulMRH: heavy hands freedman!!
    SusanR: we lost our educational technology integrators in our school district
    SharonPe: irrelevant
    SharonPe: based on software training
    SharonPe: not pedagogy
    SharonPe: that is my biggest complaint
    SharonPe: software training for software that the teacher will never touch again
    MaureenB: yes have to get test scores up
    GrahamW: On the topic of mobile/cell phones, check out these posters from my 2006 class. http://www.bubbleshare.com /album/93869.fdb66b7a6ce /overview
    PaulMRH: Very true terry - it is essential to find how the tech works for them!!
    SharonPe: no, Terry, been there done that
    SusanR: there is some excellent prof dev right here at tappedin
    SharonPe: understand completely
    SusanR: see the online calendar http://tappedin.org/tappedin /do/CalendarAction
    SusanR: for January
    JoeDa: Here are some links for the conference plus other things we've done at my school: http://joedale.typepad.com /integrating_ict_into_the_ /nodehill/index.html
    SharonPe: my social network in the last 6 months has given me more prof dev than anything the school has ever provided
    AllanahGst4 left the room (signed off).
    SusanR: joedale100
    PaulMRH: It also needs to be something that is relevant for the teacher
    BjB: here's something to cogitate upon. Received this from my principal when I suggested a school wiki: I don't see anything that we would
    BjB: put on a WIKI that would benefit us or our kids. I feel that the teachers
    BjB: and I have enough to do already, this is just adding unnecessary work to our
    BjB: plate. I don't want to get away from the valuable time we spend with the students.
    TerryF: why do I keep getting morons asking me to exchange contact details? It's not like they are 18 year old girls or something, which I might be tempted to consider (not really).

    SharonPe: my personal social network (whom I call "my peeps" affectionately) have helped me keep my sanity in the last number of months
    GrahamW: My "expertise", Terry - Web 2 and interactive whiteboards - or StartPages as a way of managing web 2 content.
    GrahamW: The only mug would be mE!

    GrahamW: PageFlakes, Netvibes, WebWag etc. http://gwegner.edublogs.org /2006/09/16/startpages-a-quick -comparison/
    SharonPe: one of my mentors made two suggestions - train your students - and don't wait for peopke to catch up - just keep advancing forward
    TerryF: i've just been hailed by some nude guy. Where's the bucket?
    GrahamW: Probably Big Blogger is easier on the ego.
    TerryF: lol
    JeanneS: Terry, he caught me last time!
    TerryF: it's disgusting
    SharonPe: that's what you get when you have a non-gneder specific name!
    PaulMRH: yugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    JoeDa: You have to show teachers how these tools can be used practically. The pupils don't need convincing
    TerryF: Terry i a man's name
    MaureenB: is there a way to stop that
    TerryF: idk
    JeanneS: You can change your preferences somehow
    SharonPe: but get the students on board with using wikis etc and get them to ask for the same from the other teachers....
    MaureenB: it makes me afraid to use at school
    TerryF: yes
    TerryF: by walking the walk
    SusanR: assign a student mentor for the teachers
    JoeDa: Good point. We now have three teachers who are blogging at my school and the pupils' comments have been very positive
    DavidWe: What kind of comments?
    JoeDa: We have a Two Stars and a Wish policy
    PaulMRH: True Joe - take the making the News work we have been doing the kids give up their lunchtimes without hinking about it at all - whatever the weather 15 people turn up for 40 mins every lunchtime - kids don't need convincing
    MaureenB: our middle school has a one on one laptop iniative and they have student mento
    GrahamW: I reckon del.icio.us is a good place for teachers to start.
    JeanneS: To keep out the unwanted messages....Tools, options, privacy
    TerryF: Sharon, I have done that for years, and it never fails
    JoeDa: Pupils are meant to give two positive comments about a piece of work (Two stars) and one tick( one thing that can be improved)
    DavidWe nods
    SusanR: it needs to meet a basic need
    SusanR: for teachers and easy to implement
    SharonPe: Terry, what have youdone for years? specifically?
    JoeDa: Pupils just love having their work published on the net
    DavidWe smiles
    SharonPe: yes, they do
    SharonPe: love to have their stuff put on the web
    JoeDa: We have to show teachers how easy it is to use blogs and podcasts to achieve that
    SharonPe has family members glaring at her
    SharonPe will have to go off and make dinner for them.....
    GrahamW: Just-in-time works if you have the availability and time to give to them.
    PaulMRH: True Joe ther are so many ways in now I don't think many know how easy they are??
    JoeDa: For language teaching web 2.0 tools are particularly exciting
    MaureenB: it has made my students excited about writing when they know it will find it's way on to my web page
    ChrisHa: bye sharron
    SharonPe: don't get me started on that topic, Graham!
    JeanneS: Thanks for everything, Sharon!
    SharonPe: will check in later - looking forward to seeing the chat!
    DavidWe waves to Sharon
    SharonPe: thanks for the affirmation Terry
    JoeDa: Language teachers in England are starting to blog now
    DavidWe: Good Tapped In learning, Sharon
    GrahamW: Takeaway, Sharon?
    PaulMRH: My kids were so motivated when they saw their stats when they saw that 600 views a month of their work they were so excited
    TerryF: yw, Sharon
    DavidWe: Indeed
    JoeDa: I think my blog is helping in a small way
    JoeDa: That's the idea anyway
    DavidWe smiles
    PaulMRH: With all of us I think we are there trying to kick start this technology
    PaulMRH: to get it more the norm than the exception
    JoeDa: There is a programme on Teachers TV called Blogosphere about how blogging can motivate primary pupils and their writing skills
    JoeDa: http://www.teachers.tv/video /167
    TerryF: does anyone know offhand about any youtube videos in which children talk about their experience of using Web 2.0?
    PaulMRH: Very much so our link from Wales and NZ has brought us all on so much - more than we expected
    TerryF: thx for that link Joe
    PaulMRH: and the link between myself and allanah has been fantastic - a learning curve for both of us - over 13,000 miles
    PaulMRH: and a hemisphere
    DavidWe: very cool
    JeanneS: Great idea, Chirs
    GrahamW: That breaks the Innovation In Isolation syndrome.
    JoeDa: No problem. Teachers TV contacted me in October about the possibility of making a programme about blogging and podcasting in languages, but I won't hold my breath!
    PaulMRH: I started by thinking that i could get more happening within wales - I have now realised that you have to find like minded people wherever they are!
    JoeDa: They did make it clear that they were interested, but didn't want to raise my hopes too much
    PaulMRH: Be it canada, US or S hemisphere
    JoeDa: Definitely Paul. Otherwise we wouldn't have met!
    TerryF: They keep contacting me too
    AprilPC: Our middle school admins have just created a wiki called middle school resource room to help the teachers understand how to collaborate but also help them develop a network of people to connect with.
    PaulMRH: True Joe and this netwrok hopefully will grow over time
    TerryF: yEs!
    AllanahGst1: Paul have you told people aboput the TES article on Skype
    JoeDa: At least in England, there are a few of us whereas is Wales you are the only blogger, no?
    PaulMRH: No hiding my light under a blanket!!!!
    AllanahGst1: Tell them- it's really cool
    JeanneS: Idea for next one...global literacy
    JoeDa: http://joedale.typepad.com /integrating_ict_into_the_ /2007/01/lots_of_scope_w.html Have a look at this.
    PamWi: I'm off - falling asleep here .. not because of you guys LOL... this was an experience..... for my first time but good to meet you all.
    PaulMRH: Joe I now count PamWi ( from Harrow school) as 2nd Welsh edublogger!!!

    BjB: above the chat window is a welcome note. Scroll down on the welcome note to the sentence This is the Group Room for K12Online
    GrahamW: It would be 4 am here.

    Tips for Moderators
    For Tapped-In
    Stay logged into the Tapped-In room throughout your skypecast.
    Use the 'detatch' feature of the Tapped-In chat room and maximize the window so you can see more of the past chat lines during the event. (found in the "action menu" in the chat box on right)
    >
    # If you have any trouble with anything at all, you can get help online at any time , immediately, from the Help Desk in Tapped In.
    If you would like a quick orientation of Tapped In and the K12Online room... please email Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach- snbeach at cox dot net
    Sheryl will be in the Tapped In room at 7pm Eastern- 0:00 GMT through the first few hours to help out in chat. Drop by then before your shift (if applicable) and she can answer your questions about how to handle chat part of When Night Falls.
    It is a good idea to have some prewritten chat starters ready to cut and paste in. For example: I want to welcome everyone tonight to the 24 our closing event of the K12 Online Conferfence "When Night Falls" If things like that were in a minimized notepad doc you could just cut and paste occassionally in and it saves time. For example: Please feel free to add any resources in the links section in the navigation bar on the left you would like to share. or Let's take a minute to introduce ourselves since we have different folks in chat than in the Skypecast. Give us your name, school or organ ization, and location. Just having a few prewritten things will help you multitask...once you get the conversation going in Tapped In it will take on a life of its own.
    For more about Tapped In.. click on Tapped In on navigation bar on left of this wiki.
    >
    For Skypecasts
    If you have a small number of Skype participants (less than 10) you can probably keep everyone's microphones unmuted (from your side, the moderator side.) If you have more people, you will likely want to MUTE microphones and UNMUTE when people want to talk. This makes the interaction less free flowing, but can cut down drastically on feedback and background noise.
    >
    # Encourage all participants to mute their microphones when they are not speaking, to minimize feedback and noise.
    Encourage all participants to use headphones to minimize feedback.
    >
    # If you start to have "audio bleedover" from another Skypecast not related to yours (this sometimes happens) use the MUTE ALL button at the top of the SkypeCast window, and selectively unmute and mute participants who want to speak. (Participants will be able to ask for the microphone by clicking a button, and you'll see the icon beside their username turn ORANGE when they want to talk.)
    If the Skypecast participant lists goes blank during the event, click on the MUTE ALL button at the top of the SkypeCast window, and then click UNMUTE ALL. This should restore the participant list.
    If your Internet connection goes down and you are disconnected from the skypecast, restart your connection and reconnect to the skypecast as soon as possible. If you left participant mics muted, they will not be able to unmute until you login again and do it as the moderator. You CANNOT promote others to moderate a skypecast in its current version.
