Jackie Gerstein: Hint - I am actually connected to mine right now.


Lorna: great tool


Moderator (Peggy George): me too--great to have you in my PLN


Kristina H 1: oops. professional, i thought personal learning network


Jackie Gerstein: Fast response to that one!


Moderator (Peggy George): I love the polling tool on Elluminate!


Moderator (Peggy George): very interesting!!


Lorna: Isn't a great way to focus the discussion


Lindseyb16: Polls are great on here


Lorna: isn't it


Moderator (Peggy George): we may have to do a special session just on Plurk


Thomas Cooper - Atlanta: only once for me, prefer twitter


Antwon Lincoln: Why...


Jackie Gerstein: Found a stat today - 782% growth in Twitter in 2008


Peter Zingg: Just looked at a screenshot of Plurk and was pur-plexed.


Antwon Lincoln: Can't wait for the show on Plurk


Lorna: That is a result of friends following each other


Mary Kay Morrison: I am on LInked In which I really like


Lorna: That is good to know that you may not have a closed network


Sarah S: I tried Plurk but had a tough time getting it set up - and twitter was working really well for me, so I didn't invest too much time in Plurk.


Jeanne Bookgirl425: I read Plurk was more casual and Twitter was more for business networking as is LinkedIn


Thomas Cooper - Atlanta: Yabber is used by a number of businesses. http://www.yabber.org/


Lorna: Mass cue what is that??


Lindseyb16: Massachussets computer using educators. I am a member


Lorna: grr8 ty


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): Also now can use www.conversations.net in the education tab.


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): http://www.conversations.net


Lois Cox: I follow people on Twitter but not regularly.


Jackie Gerstein: My two major methods are (1) iGoogle with RSS feeds of blogs and news, and (2) Twitter


Eve Heaton: I follow blogs through my blog. So I can see when things are updated.


Shawn: My iPhone has made it easier to follow folks on Twitter.


Jenny: I def. agree that diversity of voices is critical for contituation of thought development and growth.


Jeanne Bookgirl425: I'm a member of Orange County CUE


Jeanne Bookgirl425: I follow blogs and nings thru my blog and twitter and facebook and SL


Moderator (Peggy George): I personally started with reading blogs but then quickly moved to twitter to discover new blog posts in addition to my feedreader subscriptions.


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): The CUE community and other social networks are great places.


Jackie Gerstein: Using @twitter name in twitter box, looking at people who someone I respect is following them and then adding them.


Jeanne Bookgirl425: I don't think I have a mic on this


Moderator (Peggy George): sorry Jeanne-keep typing


Jeanne Bookgirl425: I'll go back to my laptop which does


Kristina H 1: i started out with google reader and now use twitter a lot besides lms, delicious, facebook. still need to be more active in the nings


Peter Zingg: I read a few education feeds every day in Google Reader, and then push the posts that I find relevant to the teachers I work with (I'm a tech director, not a teacher myself).


Lindseyb16: I use twitter, delicious and netvibes as a rss reader and its public page feature


Jackie Gerstein: Joining lots of Nings - as per the twitterverse - wish there was a centralized page that lists all of my NIngs


Jenny: oh my exponential growth is seems. I am haven't jumped into blogging yet.


Jeanne to Steve Hargadon, Peggy George, Kim Caise: I keep adding pages to favorites then perusing them at more depth later


Peter Zingg: I hope during this spring to become more of a poster as well as a reader. My role model for this is: kassblog.com - he's a tech director I've met face to face.


Jeanne to Steve Hargadon, Peggy George, Kim Caise: oop


Thomas Cooper - Atlanta: I have high school students look up the blogs of university professors and organizations that deal with topics they are studying.


Jenny: i have jumped in with both feet due to sl. I ahve discovered in credible resources and individuals and


Jenny: just am trying to figure it all out!


Mary Kay Morrison: my web site www.questforhumor.com has a blog. I am trying to figure out how to get educators on my site to blog about how they use humor in the classroom.


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): Clever!


Lindseyb16: @Thomas cool idea, what subject?


Moderator (Peggy George): @Mary Kay--have you sent a twitter message about your blog?


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): @thomas: do you have them look for grad students as well? They might be more likely to engage.


Moderator (Peggy George): add your link here and it will be saved in the chat archive


Peter Zingg: Yes, long term is important!


Smhearty: http://middleschoolmatters.com


Antwon Lincoln: That is a good point that you have to commit to your subscribers


Eve Heaton: My students blog is at www.mrsheatonsclass1.blogspot.com. This is fourth graders blogging.


Jackie Gerstein: @Jenny - SL is my favorite professional development venue - http://secondlife.iste.wikispaces.net/events and http://www.literacy2learn.org/


Moderator (Peggy George): http://www.mrsheatonsclass1.blogspot.com


Mary Kay Morrison: http://www.questforhumor.com/index.html is the site on Using Humor in the Classroom


Eve Heaton: I also do science notebooking in the classroom and I have a blog with lots of pictures and explainations (elementary/middle school level) at http://www.sciencenotebooking.com.


Moderator (Peggy George): It's so great to bring together all of the different roles-teachers, parents, students, educators!


Peter Zingg: Interestingly enough, I took a poll in a 7th grade classroom yesterday and NO students had ever used twitter. SMS yes, of course...


Moderator (Peggy George): go ahead Jeanne--we can hear you


Jackie Gerstein: Started a PBWIki and asked other classess to join - Ours from Arizona, two others joined - one from Illinois and one from Turkey - http://weewebwonders.pbwiki.com/


Eve Heaton: Made a mistake the science notebooking site is at http://www.sciencenotebooking.blogspot.com


Lorna: http://ourschool.ca


Moderator (Peggy George): thanks Jackie!


Smhearty: This is in and of itself and interesting use of technology. I'm currently working with another user on Skype and working through this. I could see some use for this with Professional Development.


Jenny: Thank you Jackie : )


Lorna: http://edtechtalk.com/parentsaspartners


Jackie Gerstein: It SOOO much fund Jenny!


Jackie Gerstein: Networked student video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XwM4ieFOotA


Mary Kay Morrison: please explain Ning


Moderator (Peggy George): wow Jeanne! you are very connected!


Moderator (Peggy George): Steve would you like to explain Ning?


Lorna: NIng is a social network application


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): Great point Jeanne!


Jackie Gerstein: Ning - http://www.ning.com/


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): @Peggy: sure


Shawn: One of the things I like about Ning is that I retain the rights to the content.


Smhearty: One of the conversations I've had is about the effectiveness of some of these tools that are in their infancy. Teachers, as a whole, need to see an immediate payoff to take the risk of some of these technologies.


Eve Heaton: I do a classroom teacher blog but I don't get much traffic there. I most likely will not do it next year. I'll keep the student blog (again fourth grade). My website gets a lot of parent traffic but I actively promote it in the classroom (http://www.mrsheatonsclass.com) this a fourth grade class website.


Moderator (Peggy George): The Ning explanation will be a great transition into our topic today of managing/using social networks


Moderator (Peggy George): @Eve--sometimes it takes a long time to get people to respond to your blog posts even when they are regular readers. Don't get discouraged.


Jeanne to Steve Hargadon, Peggy George, Kim Caise: also networking with our alma mater and current students if that's applicable. SJSU SLIS has a great network.


Lorna: @Eve please don't give up on the classroom website


Peter Zingg: Is there a ning search? I'm looking for "open source classroom 2.0"


Smhearty: Managing social networks is a HUGE topic. How many to belong to? Which ones are most effective? Will there be a "NewReader" model for updates on the social networks?


Lorna: more parents as they come to understand the possibilies will find you


Donelle: Is it possible to have the ads removed on a Ning?


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): @peter: http://community.k12opensource.com


Moderator (Peggy George): I even started a Ning community for my alma mater--classmates from MANy years ago!


Shawn: @Eve I agree. I think this is in the vanguard and more will follow. Being in front will be a help to others.


Thomas Cooper - Atlanta: You can send them an email to get the adds removed.


Jackie Gerstein: That's why I love my Pageflakes and iGoogle aggregates.


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): @Donelle: see http://education.ning.com


Thomas Cooper - Atlanta: I have a ning community for environmental science teachers http://goapes.ning.com


Donelle: That's great-thanks


Mary Kay Morrison: what is pageflakes?


Lindseyb16: Netvibes helps me manage my network


Thomas Cooper - Atlanta: Pageflakes is a social reader


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): See the wiki for educational social networks at http://socialnetworksined.wikispaces.com


Jeanne: I look at groups that my network friends belong to


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): Great list, and if you know of others, add them!


Thomas Cooper - Atlanta: I like Netvibes


Jeanne: I use Google reader


Eve Heaton: I like sites that feature student work. It is very powerful to see what children are capable of.


Thomas Cooper - Atlanta: You can set them up for a class and then have each page relate to a topic. I have one for my APES course.


Peter Zingg: You need a dashboard to keep it all straight. Also, most of these tools can cross-post: diigo to twitter, wordpress, etc.


Jackie Gerstein: I use my Pageflakes to present professional archives, Blogs, twitters, links, etc. http://www.pageflakes.com/jgerst1111/


Thomas Cooper - Atlanta: It can get so large its hard to get through.


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): How to manage multiple Ning networks: www.stevehargadon.com/2008/05/ning-dashboard.html


Karen: I got here late- darnit-- and have yet to figure out if a Personal Learning Network is something you do consciously-- like friending someone


Jenny: Smhearty -- i agree the time to effectiveness and immediate use. . . is critical -- i have so many duties -- as sped casemanager and teacher..


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): http://www.stevehargadon.com/2008/05/ning-dashboard.html


Lindseyb16: This is my public netvibes http://www.netvibes.com/thedigitalbackpack


Lindseyb16: I love sharetabs


Moderator (Peggy George): Sharetabs is a great way to share links visually!


Jackie Gerstein: Nice aggregate!


Jackie Gerstein: Can you put that llink in the chat?


Lordo-THTV: Hello!


Moderator (Peggy George): you can create sharetabs pages for your students to use to go to safe websites


Mary Kay Morrison: wow==that is great with all the share tabs. Will we get a link to this conversation today?


Thomas Cooper - Atlanta: SEMOZ Web 2.0 Awards is a great site to keep up on new and the best sites. http://www.seomoz.org/web2.0


Moderator (Kim Caise) to Steve Hargadon, Peggy George, Kim Caise: hi Lordo


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): Balance: moving from the mental model of "inbox" to newspaper...


Moderator (Kim Caise): hi Lordo, great of you to jionus


Jackie Gerstein: What's balance? I want to quit my job and spend my days searching the web.


Mary Kay Morrison: I have written a book on Using Humor to Maximize Learning and I do workshops on stress and the impact on learning


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): I can tell how I use iGoogle.


Thomas Cooper - Atlanta: It's like reading a newspaper. Set some time (30 minutes) each day (in the morning while you are having your coffee) to participate in social networks.


Moderator (Peggy George): http://sharetabs.com/


Peter Zingg: Newspaper is a good analogy-about twice a day, I read mobile.nytimes.com, google reader and check twitterific. Then it's back to work.


Lorna: @Mary Kay that is so important


Jeanne: I add things to favorites and establish a reading time to read each one in depth and either add them to my blogroll or delete them.


Antwon Lincoln: Ning is great!


Shawn: lol, its called standing in the hallway between classes and an iPhone networking w/the teachers in the hall and via Twitter/Facebook.


dlaufenberg: our school uses moodle for internal social networking (walled garden)


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): Eve: are you familiar with Custom Google Search Engines?


Smhearty: Steve beat me to the Google Search Engines


Thomas Cooper - Atlanta: Furl is a good social bookmarking site.


Lorna: I think that somw timew you have to say enough


Jenny: giggle?


Lorna: times


Peter Zingg: delicious was my first 2.0 tool - and still is really useful. I now use diigo (but haven't used most of the social aspects), but my diigo bookmarks all go to delicious as well.


Moderator (Peggy George): I've also really liked using Friendfeed for sharing my links from Diigo/Delicious and reading those of my friends.


Jeanne: I use diigo also


Jackie Gerstein: Going to have my students create their own network about favorite books using Shelfari - http://www.shelfari.com/


Eve Heaton: I'll definitely have to check out digo


Antwon Lincoln: Peggy - Ning is not blocked from view on school computers


Moderator (Peggy George): http://ww.friendfield.com


Mary Kay Morrison: i like the concept of newspaper thanks


nhill: I do the same


Moderator (Kim Caise): http://www.friendfeed.com


Smhearty: Someone I know is using Evernote to focus students on searching. The difference between that and Google Custom Search Engine is that you have control over the content - the content doesn't "go away".


Moderator (Peggy George): sorry-typed that wrong. http://friendfeed.com/


Peter Zingg: Click "shared" "starred" on google reader when you want to save 'em.


Antwon Lincoln: Peggy that message me was ffor the last speaker ---sorry


Jeanne: and flickr and youtube - subscribe to particular people who load videos that help


Lorna: @ Mary Kay there is something to be said about the value of print


Jenny: where do they go when the they drop?


Moderator (Peggy George): I love Diigo for searching for tags on a topic.


Moderator (Peggy George): @Jenny--could you say more about your question? when what drops?


nhill: read what peaks your interest


Jenny: re teve and when the blogs drop off of rss in google


Jackie Gerstein: I, too, read my iGoogle like a newpaper.


Peter Zingg: That's right, Steve. But about once a week, I find one that is worth archiving (clipping the newspaper).


Moderator (Peggy George): I use an application on my Mac called Snackr. It keeps a running scroll across the bottom of my screen with everything I've subscribed to in my feedreader.


Peter Zingg: Those are the ones I send to my teachers to get them thinking.


Jackie Gerstein: Love the Handshake problem metaphor http://math.about.com/cs/weeklyproblem/a/q2.htm


Eve Heaton: How can we get a copy of this slide that is up right now?


Karen: So the idea of responding to blog posts cahnges with the newpaper model


Karen: changes


Lindseyb16: It's your customized paper too, you get to be the editor deciding tags, topics and people who come through


Peter Zingg: Apple has the RSS screen saver too!


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): Is there a PC/Firefox/other program like snackr?


Kristina H 1: in addition to eve: who did the slide (for proper citation if we want to use it )


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): Darn that Apple. So creative!


Kristina H 1: @steve: there was an rss reader screensaver tool for pc. i'll check if i still have it on my old pc. haven't used the pc in a year.


nhill: How do you get them to use it?


Moderator (Peggy George): http://snackr.net/ Just read that it also works on Windows and Linux


nhill: Looking to try it next week with my staff.


Jeanne: admin support is necessary


Smhearty: Need the slide? Use Jing to take a screen shot.


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): @antwon: there has to be something really practical and compelling that the network "solves."


Moderator (Peggy George): they call Snackr a "ticker"


Lindseyb16: This is such a key issue Anton.


Peter Zingg: I guess "tickr" was taken.


Jeanne: that's cool Peggy, I'll look at Snackr.


Eve Heaton: What is Jing?


nhill: I am stepping into "Professional Development Facilitator" position next week. Try to get teachers to implement technology into the classroom.


Jeanne: I just bought Camtasia and downloaded Jing


Moderator (Peggy George): Great points about Ning in districts Antwon!


Kristina H 1: @eve: jing is a screenrecording / screencasting program


nhill: I love jing


Smhearty: Jing is a free cross-platform screen capture tool. It records stills and videos.


Lorna: I think that there has to be a lot of hand holding and personal contact to get people using the tools


Moderator (Peggy George): Oh Jeanne! You sound just like me! so many great tools!


Antwon Lincoln: ok..


Mary Kay Morrison: in my stress management workshops, one of the issues for both teachers and administrators is the challenge of adding the complexity of technology to already stressed lives.


Karen: I use Jing to show students how to use different tech tools


Jeanne: Just learning, Peggy. New Yrs Resolution to just do it.


Antwon Lincoln: ok..


Kristina H 1: snickr would be too distracting for me during a regular workday. wouldn't be able to get anything done if i saw all those great posts scrolling by all the time


Thomas Cooper - Atlanta: Would be great to have a Jing group on CR 2.O were we could all share our Jing casts.


Antwon Lincoln: Very helpful


Moderator (Peggy George): I agree Kristina! I only turn it on when I can stand to be interrupted


Thomas Cooper - Atlanta: I have a number on Google Earth


Jeanne: It's JIT learning


Lindseyb16: What tool would you ask teachers to start their pln with?


nhill: I just made new screencast with Jing to teach students how to use Audacity


Donelle: Mary Kay: I agree with that too, especially if they are not familiar with the tools already


Peter Zingg: Start a ning about a new project, for example? Like how do we use these new document cameras that our district just bought?


Karen: @nhill I'd love to see that


Smhearty: Good idea Thomas. The sharing of information is what the social networks are about. Steve made the terrific point that it needs to be useful for people to adopt.


Eve Heaton: It helps for teachers in a district/school to see what students are capable of using technology tools. I have had a lot of interest in my classroom blog from teachers in the district now that they see who it can be used to enhance instruction.


Moderator (Peggy George): Great questions Lindsey


Shawn: I've used Snapz Pro to make virtual field trips in Second Life, but it's not free.


Jeanne: my current research says email is for "old people" so we all have to catch up


Jackie Gerstein: Twitter


Kristina H 1: @nhill. did you manage to explain audacity in 5 min. in jing or do you have the pro version?


nhill: I'm starting with plurk


Shawn: I agree, probably Twitter.


Thomas Cooper - Atlanta: Ning


Lorna: @Shawn Sanpz Pro is an excellent tool


Smhearty: Truly depends on their current level.


Karen: RSS


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): I think blogging is more understandable than twitter.


Jenny: Overwhelmed like me . . . as a Brand noobie


Eve Heaton: My district blocks twitter


Sarah S: Simple: RSS and a Google Reader is a great way to start them


Peter Zingg: Or, a ning on what would we do if we moved from an all-Mac to an open source platform in a year or two?


Eve Heaton: I agree with blogging


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): I would start with blogging and Ning...


Jackie Gerstein: Can add the links to Twitter to refer to other sources.


nhill: edmodo with students =)


Eve Heaton: Having a good website I think would be a good start for teachers.


Thomas Cooper - Atlanta: I think having a Ning for a school or district is a great start for teachers.


Sarah S: I also mention Classroom2.0 as a great example of a ning


Donelle: We're starting with blogging


Smhearty: The problem with Twitter is usefulness.


Mary Kay Morrison: i find twitter difficult--and I have been using PSN for a while


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): You can use something like Chatterous for a specific purpose.


Karen: Using a blog throught a Ning is a great way to get feet wet is helpful


CJack: Regarding Jing, there is a application called TipCam from http://www.UTipU.com that does screencasts in FLV or AVI format, and there is no time limit on the file. It is free


Thomas Cooper - Atlanta: They feel comfortable sharing with their peers, then reaching out to larger newtorks.


Jackie Gerstein: Interestingly, I can't directly get into Twiter at school but can get through it via my Pageflakes.


Jeanne: I agree with Steve. Starting with reading blogs and finding a good ning doesn't require them to respond so much


Lorna: Voice thread has gr8 value


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): The problem with Twitter for me is that it's such a leap into "immediacy"


Sarah S: I get twitter through BeTwittered on my iGoogle page even though twitter is blocked at school.


Kristina H 1: i'd look at deliious or diigo because they can build up a resource bank of great stuff that they want to share


Lorna: when you are just starting


nhill: Same her Steve.


Peter Zingg: and it's sooo short - 140 chars


nhill: here


Shawn: Ning is nice for pre-formatted stuff and then the focus is on the content.


Moderator (Steve Hargadon) to Steve Hargadon, Peggy George, Kim Caise: Two hands raised.


Jackie Gerstein: @Peter - that's why "good" tweets have links to other sites.


Thomas Cooper - Atlanta: If you start with a Ning, then you can move to blogs and RSS and incorporate them into the Ning which acts as a container for Web 2.0 tools in the classroom.


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): CR 2.0 also shows how practially valuable these tools are.


Eve Heaton: I totally agree about classroom 20 being a good place to start.


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): It's so *not* MySpace it surprises people.


Peter Zingg: I tend to want to take an hour to write a piece. Then you've got to link to it. But in my case, the tree will fall in the forest and few will hear it.


Eve Heaton: It helped me tremendously.


Jeanne: and join a particular group - get a couple colleagues to add to discussion and help to build activity


Lindseyb16: Yes, classroom 2.0 thanks then twitter might just follow once they start


Mary Kay Morrison: what kind of staff development does everyone have in their schools to address these questions?


Moderator (Steve Hargadon) to Steve Hargadon, Peggy George, Kim Caise: Your both doing a GREAT job.


Thomas Cooper - Atlanta: Currently creating a class on Web 2.0 for a group of teachers in AL and we are starting with CR 2.0, then blogging, then RSS, etc.


Moderator (Peggy George): Excellent plan Thomas!!


Jeanne: I am developing my staff. I am doing a PLN inservice. I speak once a month at faculty mtgs.


Thomas Cooper - Atlanta: thanks


Lindseyb16: @Thomas, do you have a link yet?


Thomas Cooper - Atlanta: Would be happy to pass it on when it's done to be posted on CR 2.0


Smhearty: There can be a great hinderance through IT. There aren't a lot of IT people who understand education. It does seem to be getting better.


Peter Zingg: Just started following Wes Fryer on twitter - his (rather infrequent) tweets actually say something in 140 chars, rather than just "I just posted something on open source http://tr.im/blahblah


Moderator (Peggy George): Marty is a fantastic example of a GOOD IT director!!


Jeanne: IT people tell me to "ask them first" before saying those "bad words" at work, lilke SNSs..


Marty Caise: @Eve It is not intentional


Marty Caise:


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): @peter: that's why I like tools like Chatterous because you can separate the personal from the professional discussions.


Karen: Has anyone used Weebly?


Thomas Cooper - Atlanta: Will be posting the information on http://thenetworkedlearner.wikispaces.com. I'm moving some of my info from http://teensandtechnology.wikispaces.com


Smhearty: Marty is. We need more Martys though!!!


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): I LOVE Weebly.


Jeanne: I don't ask IT first. If I have to I go to my VPrinc for Curr & Instrc who supports me


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): I have 10 sites up because it's so dang easy to use.


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): Including http://live.classroom20.com


durff: I don't ask either


Karen: @Steve Can you say more about why?


Moderator (Steve Hargadon):


Moderator (Peggy George): Absolutely! we just have to keep developing that collaboration between teachers and IT and curriculum


Moderator (Peggy George): Welcome Durff!!!!


Jeanne: I'll take the backlash. haha


durff: hi peggy


Donelle: What is Weebly?


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): It takes all of 10 minutes to get a site up with Weebly, and that uses your own domain name, AND for free.


Moderator (Kim Caise): hi durff


durff: kim


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): Not Web 2.0, but a GREAT tool


Shawn: @Jeanne but sometimes that's the only way it gets considered!


Karen: @Steve Thanks


Jeanne: we have a laptop wireless high school so supposedly tech is IMPortant


Moderator (Peggy George): Weebly is the site we're using for our Classroom 2.0 LIVE site


Jeanne: I agree Shawn


Antwon Lincoln: Great point!


Mary Kay Morrison: I love the idea of using students to share information about technology!


Antwon Lincoln: Would love to hear more from Marty!


Jackie Gerstein: Interestingly the student blogging site http://www.21classes.com/ was not blocked at my school


Antwon Lincoln: Later date..


Peter Zingg: Start with a core of teachers - absolutely right!


Jeanne: I have gotten 4 colleagues to agree to apply for a PLP cohort


Moderator (Peggy George): Maybe we can have a special show for Marty and other IT directors to help us


Jeanne: that's powerful learning practice


Marty Caise: @Antwon... I am always available you can email me at mcaise@neisd.net


Moderator (Peggy George): 4 colleagues is a great start Jeanne!


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): @peggy Great idea.


Moderator (Steve Hargadon) to Steve Hargadon, Peggy George, Kim Caise: 5 minutes to go.


Donelle: What is the best way being one of those teachers, to grow your skills quickly. The excitement is there, but it can be overwhelming trying to learn on your own.


Moderator (Steve Hargadon) to Steve Hargadon, Peggy George, Kim Caise: I believe it helps to finish on time so that people know they can count on the length.


Moderator (Peggy George) to Steve Hargadon, Peggy George, Kim Caise: go ahead with the final poll and wrapup


Peter Zingg: As an IT person, I want to "follow" the teachers rather than lead them.


Mary Kay Morrison: I agree Donelle


Jeanne: I would do an inservice Donelle with other teachers and all have laptops or computer lab and set up PLN together.. or start


Moderator (Steve Hargadon) to Steve Hargadon, Peggy George, Kim Caise: People feel reluctant to leave if it's still going on, and I think they appreciate the formal finish.


Moderator (Peggy George) to Steve Hargadon, Peggy George, Kim Caise: such a great point Peter! following and really listening to their interests and needs!
