Pozzic Dejane:!

07:09 - Kristen Swanson
I just lost audio

07:11 - Peggy George
Kristen you have a bit of a bandwidth lag

08:47 - Peggy George
This is their fabulous new book and you're definitely going to want to check it out!!!

09:07 - Peggy George
I have it on my Kindle and it is loaded with tons of practical ideas!!!

10:12 - Peggy George
how did you come up with the term "superpowers"??? :-)

10:24 - Eileen

11:05 - Peggy George
above and beyond normal powers :-) empowering students and teachers!!!

11:40 - Hadley
Totally about leaving old roles and taking on new ones!

12:24 - Peggy George
that is so true!!! teachers leave the end of the day more tired than the kids!

13:15 - Peggy George
kids don't think of themselves as heros...

13:39 - Peggy George
cute image!!! all unique!

13:43 - Kristen Swanson
Love the idea of each student having their own powers

13:49 - Peggy George
Hi Shamblesguru! Great to see you!

14:01 - Shamblesguru (iPad Thailand)
evening :-)

14:23 - Peggy George
those are our dream students but we have to make it happen as teachers to empower them

14:24 - Duda MNE
Hi Croatia:)

14:35 - Annette Whitby 2
Digital inking is a new term for me.

14:52 - Annette Whitby 2
Very interesting

14:55 - Kgradel
Great to see curating early in the "skill" sequence.

14:56 - Peggy George (Student SuperStars Book)

15:13 - Antonela, Croatia
Hi, nice to be with you, :)

15:31 - Peggy George (Wondering Superpowers)

15:55 - Peggy George (Student Superstars on Twitter & Pinterest)

16:16 - Kgradel
It is also key to the very old Big 6 model...where questioning has been core.

16:26 - Peggy George
so true Kgradel

16:48 - Peggy George
that's a big question!!

16:51 - Hadley
Love Project Zero!

16:54 - Kristen Swanson
I am a fan of using essential questions

16:55 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Hello everyone. Sorry I'm late. Was at the Office Depot Teacher Appreciation event.

16:56 - Debbie
EQ is posted along with LEQ

16:56 - Karen Owen
essential questioning / the big Q

16:59 - Peggy George
encouraging students to ask big questions :-)

17:12 - Stella Maris Berdaxagar
Hi. There has been a power cut in my town.

17:18 - Eileen
I use Q- Matrix with questions based on higher level thinking as students read novels.

17:18 - Kgradel
asking students to build their questions relevant to teacher-built essential question

17:20 - @plnaugle (Paula)
EQ are so important.

17:23 - Shamblesguru (iPad Thailand)
that' sand interesting question …hat made you ask it?

17:26 - @plnaugle (Paula)

17:28 - Karen Owen

17:32 - Debbie
At times

17:33 - Hadley
Yes! Though need to more!

17:38 - adriana perez #2

17:49 - Dejan Kreculj
at times

17:51 - dotty

17:52 - Peggy George
they need to be taught how to do that since most of their experience is with asking straight recall questions

18:06 - Kgradel
It is hard to get them to do this sometimes, if they have already learned a passive approach. I face this all the time with preservice teachers.

18:06 - Duda MNE

18:07 - Eileen
Yes, my students generate the Q- Matrix questions for small group discussions.

18:27 - Hadley
Definitely need to be taught! That gives them the power!

18:36 - Peggy George
you can get a great overview of the Superpowers with related resources on their Pinterest board (Student Superpowers boards on Pinterest)

19:02 - Stella Maris Berdaxagar
PB tasks promote their questions quite often.

19:05 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Having students generate EQ helps them understand why they are learning the particular topic. Can also help teacher plan which way to go with lessons.

19:13 - Kristen Swanson
Love that Paula

19:14 - Kgradel
We took first graders to a local state park, and they were similarly most interested in the dead fish on the totally factored into our ecosystem studies, but we would have not led with it :)

19:19 - Peggy George
curiosity is such an important trait and many students have lost it through years of schooling

19:28 - Kristen Swanson
@Kgradel - Love that

19:48 - adriana perez #2
I love the idea of letting the students create their own essential questions.

20:01 - @bcdtech Maureen

20:05 - Tammy Moore

20:09 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Symbaloo webmixes for class computers.

20:12 - Mary Ann 1

20:13 - kamani 1
Hi from Sri Lanka

20:15 - Kristen Swanson
Here are some curation resources:

20:15 - Peggy George
this is the greatest book about curiosity written by Tom Barrett--you will be amazed at the questions 6 year olds ask!!!

20:18 - Karen Owen

20:25 - Lorie Moffat
symbaloo, diigo

20:26 - Kgradel
Love all of the tools for curation...but it is so important what's underneath...not all that's in the milk crate (even digital) is essential.

20:31 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Have Pinterest acct but it is blocked by my district.

20:33 - Kristen Swanson

20:35 - Shamblesguru (iPad Thailand)
LOTs …ee archives of these webinar a :-)

20:38 - Stephanie H
I use Evernote. Hope to do it with fifth graders this year.

20:42 - Kristen Swanson
We need to help students decide what's important

20:47 - @bcdtech Maureen
i have a schoolwide symbaloo by grade and topic for the kids

20:50 - Stella Maris Berdaxagar

20:51 - Kristen Swanson
@Stephanie H - Are you using mostly tags or notebooks?

20:53 - Kgradel
Diigo is a great start. But having them cull from their bigger list with criteria are important.

20:58 - Peggy George (Curating Superpower)

21:12 - adriana perez #2
Evernote...I'm going to explore that idea.

21:13 - Stephanie H
Notebooks. Need to incorporate tags.

21:20 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Need to see if I can access Educlipper from school.

21:25 - Peggy George
There are so many great tools for curating!

21:27 - Kgradel
Yes, tagging is part of it :)

21:35 - Kristen Swanson
@Stephanie H - Use tags a lot

21:38 - Mary Ann 1
Yes, tagging is very important.

21:58 - Kristen Swanson
Great for teacher PD too

21:59 - Peggy George
I love Livebinders for curating but also regularly use Diigo, eduClipper,, Symbaloo

22:08 - Kgradel
It will be great how you scaffold curation skills in the book.

22:18 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I'm in my classroom and just discovered I can access Educlipper. WooHoo!

22:19 - Peggy George (Connecting Superpower)

22:32 - Peggy George
Hi Paula!!! So great to see you!!!

22:36 - Kristen Swanson

22:41 - Kristen Swanson
Connecting resources

22:45 - Peggy George
that is fantastic news that you can access eduClipper in your classroom!!

22:48 - Duda MNE
Symbaloo, educlipper,

22:55 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I was just explaining to teacher buddy the importance of adding tags to things in Edmodo.

23:12 - Kristen Swanson
And understanding how to use layers of tags

23:13 - Peggy George
tags are so powerful!

23:17 - Kristen Swanson
so different searches are possible

23:25 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Hi Peegy. I'm working in my classroom today. We start on Tuesday.

23:30 - @plnaugle (Paula)

23:47 - Peggy George (Student Superpowers boards on Pinterest)

23:51 - Kgradel
cool choice of terms

23:52 - @bcdtech Maureen
yikes Paula that seems so early

24:08 - Peggy George
all of the superpowers are on that Pinterest board :-) Follow it so you'll get updates :-)

24:08 - @plnaugle (Paula)
But we finish third week in May.

24:27 - @bcdtech Maureen
we go til 3rd week of June...

24:44 - Kgradel
This is one of my summer reads:

24:54 - Peggy George (Digital Inking Superpower)

25:09 - Peggy George
blogging for sure!!

25:13 - Tammy Moore
Weeblies (campus edition)

25:16 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Blogging and using the hashtag #comments4kids on Twitter.

25:21 - Stephanie H
I have used Edmodo and Kidblog.

25:22 - @careeeson
My students use a blog.

25:23 - Stella Maris Berdaxagar
E-pals interaction.

25:26 - Kgradel
COllaborative GoogleDocs

25:27 - Peggy George
unfortunately many of the social media tools are blocked in schools

25:34 - Rocky from Salem State University

25:40 - Duda MNE
Edmodo is my favorite platform and FB

25:50 - Shamblesguru (iPad Thailand)
cameras on mobile devices often forgotten about .…hey are very powerful

25:53 - Duda MNE
yes, padlet too

25:54 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Will be using our class Twitter account more this year, but have to tweet from my phone.

26:03 - Stella Maris Berdaxagar
Twitter is great,too.

26:09 - Peggy George
we just need to keep working to educate admins and decisionmakers so our students can access these tools for learning!

26:23 - kamani 1
Yes Twitter is great too

26:25 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Skype and Google Hangouts are our favorite ways to connect and collaborate with other classes.

26:25 - Hadley
Create a class Twitter accoung.

26:42 - Bobby Song
In regards to the wondering superpower, could this be applied to a general subject currently being learned especially since there never seems to be enough time in class?

26:49 - Stella Maris Berdaxagar
Nearpod is awesome.

26:51 - @careeeson
I agree Peggy, it's through education.

26:59 - Rocky from Salem State University
Padet allows students to both share and comment

27:02 - Hadley
I use Wondering around topic of lesson.

27:15 - kamani 1
Near pod for what

27:25 - Bobby Song
Thanks Hadley =D

27:29 - @plnaugle (Paula)
My district sends mixed message. Mandated that every school in our district create a Twitter and Facebook account but they are blocked at the schools. ???

27:33 - Stella Maris Berdaxagar
For classes with interaction.

27:39 - Peggy George
it's so exciting when kids don't want to stop because the school day ends!!!

27:53 - Kristen Swanson
Yes! It's all about the passion

27:56 - Peggy George (Designing Superpower)

28:12 - Kristen Swanson
Bill's student blog -

28:16 - Peggy George
how do you help students think of themselves as designers?

28:44 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Will start the year doing #GeniusHour and allow students to design ow they want to share out their projects.

28:46 - Peggy George
feel free to share links and examples of each of these Superpowers in the chat and I'll add them to the Livebinder after the show

28:58 - kamani 1

29:03 - kamani 1

29:08 - Peggy George
Thanks Kristen for Bill's student blog link!

29:23 - Kristen Swanson
@paula - love #geniushour

29:47 - Peggy George
some of the Maker ideas and activities have been fabulous!!! so much happening with that now!

29:49 - @careeeson
When we give students a problem, they always come up with awesome solutions.

29:59 - Peggy George
there was an entire MOOC this summer for Makers :-)

30:05 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I'm proposing to our PTO that they host a Cardboard Challenge this fall.

30:11 - Kristen Swanson
Love Cardboard Challenge!

30:13 - Peggy George
what fun Paula!!!

30:30 - Kristen Swanson

31:00 - Peggy George
kids love to do the creating!!!

31:02 - Kgradel
Edutopia has so many examples of PBL in action. Start here:

31:06 - Annette Whitby 2
Can you include the Makers MOOC link?

31:11 - Kristen Swanson
Yes @edutopia is a great resource! Love it!

31:15 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Caine's Arcade -

31:31 - @careeeson
It's how we engage our students!

31:41 - @careeeson

31:49 - Hadley
It was so much fun!

32:19 - Annette Whitby 2
Love gaming!

32:41 - Peggy George
looking for the link Annette :-)

32:51 - Annette Whitby 2

33:00 - Peggy George (Gaming Superpower)

33:13 - Kgradel
And games are scaffolded so well, giving us practice opportunities leading to eventual success.

33:48 - Annette Whitby 2
Good scaffolding comment

34:00 - Kgradel
@Annette: TY

34:37 - Peggy George
the Google Community is called Making Learning Connected and they are focusing on different Making activities every week.

34:38 - Kgradel
Also goes hand-in-hand with the coding movement.

35:10 - Annette Whitby 2
Thx Peggy!

35:22 - Shamblesguru (iPad Thailand)
Options to create games at

35:29 - Peggy George
do kids just quit when they lose?? that's the power of gaming--they love the challenge and keep trying to get better

35:40 - Peggy George
thanks Shamblesguru!

35:54 - Peggy George
I agree Kristen!!!

36:32 - Peggy George
if you'd like to take the mic raise your hand and we'll give you mic permissions

36:34 - Shamblesguru (iPad Thailand)
Minecraft ..... In classrooms

36:59 - Peggy George
please type your questions here in the chat

37:38 - Peggy George
it's the term they may not use to describe themselves--designers

38:08 - Peggy George
do any of you have links/suggestions for teaching kids about curating? how do you do it?

38:22 - Kgradel
Starting to retrofit the learning experience for designing is huge...time, thinking, etc.

38:34 - Peggy George
do any of you use badges to celebrate student accomplishments?

38:39 - @careeeson
Similar to Angela Maiers You MATTER

38:41 - @bcdtech Maureen
i am not in a classroom- tech integrationist, but plan to invite students to do the hour of code again. This was a great entry to computational thinking for all ages and hopefully can be followed up in the classroom as well.

38:58 - Peggy George
I think these superpowers would make awesome badges :-)

39:05 - Kgradel
@Peggy: Yes starting. I would like to have the students design the badges :)

39:13 - Annette Whitby 2
Another good comment regarding "retrofitting"

39:25 - Duda MNE
hehe dobro je :D

39:37 - Peggy George
Kristen and Hadley could you comment on badges??

39:58 - Hadley
I have made badges in

39:58 - @bcdtech Maureen
@Peggy- I have really mixed feelings re using badges.

40:07 - Shamblesguru (iPad Thailand)
Curation Tools in. Classrooms.

40:12 - Peggy George
that's why I love hearing them discussed :-)

40:25 - @bcdtech Maureen

40:26 - Annette Whitby 2
I was using, but this quarter I am using my lms to post badges in students journals.

41:03 - Peggy George
I've been in some great virtual conference sessions recently about badges that provide many alternatives for making the intrinsic rather than extrinsic

41:09 - Shamblesguru (iPad Thailand)
Curation …ubset of Digital Literacy.

41:10 - Annette Whitby 2
Interesting "slider comment"

41:12 - Peggy George

41:44 - Kgradel
And they need to build it into their goal=setting

41:48 - Kristen Swanson

41:51 - Peggy George
thanks for those explanations/clarifications!

42:07 - Peggy George
when students create their own badges they take on new value

42:09 - Lorie Moffat
I have found the un-asked questions in chat.

42:11 - Shamblesguru (iPad Thailand)
Love the SuperPower concept .…t is those Spandex trousers that worry me

42:14 - Stephanie H
What is a good ratio of explicit instruction and working on "SuperPowers"?

42:22 - Peggy George
hahaha Shamblesguru

42:23 - Kgradel
Logistically, how are you having them deliver badges to themselves?

42:53 - Stephanie H
Love the idea of students awarding themselves badges based on their knowledge and their effort.

43:25 - Shamblesguru (iPad Thailand)
Lifelong learning skills

43:41 - @careeeson
Little mini lessons along the way.

43:48 - Shamblesguru (iPad Thailand)
…ifelong survival skills

43:56 - Peggy George
Shelly Terrell is doing a session in the MMVC14 conference right after this show on badges.

44:01 - Stephanie H
Love the idea of just in case and just in time.

44:01 - Peggy George
those are her slides :-)

44:06 - kamani 1
Learning to learn

44:12 - Peggy George

44:17 - Kristen Swanson
@awesome resource

44:20 - Peggy George
free to join that session if you're interested

45:08 - Peggy George
how do you inspire wondering if it has been crushed out of them???

45:17 - Peggy George
they have to trust you :-)

45:33 - Hadley
Trust is critical!

45:39 - Peggy George
the relationships between teachers and students is so important

45:53 - Shamblesguru (iPad Thailand)
Badges in Classrooms

46:01 - Stephanie H
I need to leave. Thanks for great information and resources.

46:04 - @careeeson
Building relationships. They come hoping this year is going to be different.

46:17 - Peggy George
That's why I love that book by Tom Barrett that I shared earlier--his focus is on the curiosity of 6 year olds and how to encourage that in all learners. It's fantastic!

46:19 - Hadley
bye, Stephanie!

46:42 - Peggy George
great point--it can and often will be uncomfortable

46:47 - Shamblesguru (iPad Thailand)
One slight anxiety using e.g. Google is the risk of losing the magic of real serendipity .…

46:58 - Peggy George
even at the university level--they want you to tell them exactly what they have to do to earn an A

47:12 - Peggy George
interesting point Shamblesguru!

47:30 - Kgradel
@Peggy: For sure. Not following the dots is a process for teachers and students.

47:39 - Peggy George

48:03 - @careeeson
Those are great ideas.

48:29 - Shamblesguru (iPad Thailand)
Making it fun …s key

48:38 - Peggy George
this is another good presentation Shelly Terrell did on digital badges.

49:06 - @careeeson
Sure keeps them coming!

49:19 - Peggy George
yes they DO need to know they matter!!!

49:34 - Kristen Swanson
Thank you so much everyone!

49:37 - Hadley
Thanks for all!

49:40 - @careeeson
Thanks for all of the inspiring ideas!

49:43 - Kristen Swanson
Great questions and resources shared in the chat

49:44 - Dejan Kreculj
Thank you!

50:03 - Annette Whitby 2
Another great session! Thx!

50:07 - Kristen Swanson
Thanks Annette!

50:19 - Rocky from Salem State University
I missed the beginning of this session but I'm very excited by the way you have organized things. I think I'll use the book with my computer literacy course for pre-service teachers! Thanks.

50:30 - Kristen Swanson
Thanks Rocky!

50:31 - Hadley
You're welcome! What fun!

50:36 - Kgradel
Do the authors have a discount for us?

51:04 - Rocky from Salem State University
Kgrade1 - good question. :)

51:05 - Duda MNE
Thanks for all (y)

55:59 - Shamblesguru (iPad Thailand)
I wonder if teachers in 100 years will be watching the archived copies of these webinars? .…ill they be studied by detect historians :-)

56:08 - Kristen Swanson
Ha! Good question

56:15 - Peggy George (Edmodocon 2014)

56:19 - Shamblesguru (iPad Thailand)

56:28 - Peggy George
