Oh .. thought the video dropped out when over 2 in conference call?

00:06 - Larry Kearns
Just new to Skype. Didn't know you could make conference calls. Neat.

00:34 - Jen
I find skype to work the best though when I am tethered in -- and not wireless

00:51 - durff
and we will wake you up!

00:52 - Jen
and yes, Video only 1:1 calls

00:59 - Nancy Pratt
That group chat feature is cool.

01:13 - Peggy George
if you miss any of the instructions you can watch the recorded version and pause it while you practice :-)

01:25 - derrallg
@lorna maybe you could do a screencast for newbies :)

01:27 - dreambition/brad
just have to say that my Delicious is overflowing with Speed of Creativity posts.. kudos Wes

01:33 - mireille
what was the blog link i couldn't see it

01:35 - Rob G.
I use Skype via wireless all the time via cable modem. Our daughter is actually video conferencing with her grandparents right now as I watch this on same WiFi network. No problem.

01:46 - Wesley Fryer
@brad you are most welcome :-)

02:14 - Jen
@Rob -- perhaps it is my laptop??

02:18 - Nancy Pratt

02:46 - Sheryl A. McCoy
High School has all students interacting through Skype. Send msg, lessons to teachers, share resources, etc.

02:47 - Jen
speedorcreativity.org

02:54 - Liz
I have a friend who does that with grandparents in Japan

02:54 - Shamblesguru 2
Version of Skype I have on windows is 4.0.0.206 ... anyone have a later version or is this it?

02:55 - Brendameyer
I will be in Dubai skyping my teachers in March.

02:55 - Jackiegerstein
My students interviewed one of the CEO's of Tikatok via Skype - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1JBaOgmGX2w

02:55 - Rob G.
@Jen Maybe. Could be laptop, network performance, etc. But just don't rule out WiFi overall.

03:06 - Jen
@Rob -- I will not. :)

03:08 - Thomas - Atlanta
Hi Tamra, from MSCS

03:57 - durff

04:07 - Jackiegerstein
that's cool

04:08 - Peggy George
Don't see Brian online yet unless he's anonymous :-)

04:18 - Lesley Edwards
we showed this presentation to a large group of teachers and then had Brian skype in to chat with them

04:24 - Nancy Pratt
Brian C is such a great and generous educator!

05:11 - Rob G.
Skype Beta for Mac (2.8.0.324) supports screen sharing, and it works really well!

05:27 - Peggy George
@Sandra--you can always post the link and then they can view it online without downloading it

05:29 - Rob G.
Can share mac to mac or mac to pc, but not pc to mac yet

05:36 - lindseyb16
@Rob G any chance tht will be avail for pc soon?

05:51 - Peggy George
Yes Rob G! just downloaded the new Mac Skype beta--fantastic!

05:55 - mireille

06:47 - Sandra Gassner
@peggy- that's why i tried but the file wouldn't play

06:47 - Peggy George
if any of you have links you'd like to share feel free to drop them in the chat and we can all access them later :-)

07:02 - Lorraine Leo
lost audio

07:05 - Deb
audio is going in and out

07:05 - Rob G.
Tip for classroom or large groups: Connect miniDV camcorder and Skype will see it as a camera. Can zoom in/out, etc. Much nicer.

07:06 - Lorraine Leo
back

07:12 - derrallg
@mireille can you be more specific

07:44 - ellen pham
Rob, that is a great tip!

07:47 - dreambition/brad
@Rob will that work for a flash based camcorder

07:49 - MYRIELLE BADIO
i want to start a paperless classroom but i teach math

07:52 - Charlene Chausis
@mireille for Internet shows suggest ustream.tv or mogulus

08:05 - April Chamberlain
ustream.tv now has popup ads

08:09 - Rob G.
Haven't tried other types of cameras, but worth a shot.

08:20 - Peggy George
it's hard to find free sites that don't have ads!

08:22 - durff
hope no one thinks i am ignoring them - sorting tax documents for appt this afternoon

08:22 - Neil Stephenson
Here's the video clip of my students talking to a museum curator about the historical artifacts they had created: http://thinkinginmind.blogspot.com/2009/02/skype-with-sheldon.html

08:25 - April Chamberlain
yes!

08:31 - Nancy Pratt
yes, any time you can bring in the family is awesome!

08:39 - derrallg
@myrielle agree w/charlene Ustream is perhaps easiest

09:06 - Thomas - Atlanta
@Neil that's pretty cool!

09:07 - Deb
How much does skype cost?

09:08 - Peggy George
we actually kept Skype w video running through an entire Thanksgiving dinner with family in NC so we could all be together :-)

09:09 - casterline

09:12 - mireille
i want to create webcasts with collaborative software

09:19 - Rob G.
Skype is FREE! :-)

09:28 - Sean
These are some great ideas Wes

09:29 - lindseyb16
@deb skype is free skype to skype

09:33 - Nancy Pratt
yes, we use it with PD

10:00 - Rob G.
I used Skype to pipe in a footback game from my neighbor's dish network system...

10:01 - langwitches
We have skyped in author, cartoonist and illustrator, Mike Artell

10:02 - Peggy George

10:24 - langwitches
Yes, have seen Brian's K12 presentation. Was amazing

10:36 - Sean
I am able to collaborate with a friend and colleague that I met in Second Life using Skype. He lives in the Netherlands and it's great to be able to stay in touch using Skype.

10:58 - Jackiegerstein
@neil stephonson - nice post with video of Skype with Sheldon

11:05 - Lorraine Leo
I am interested in setup to avoid reverb when using speakers: Best to use on/off microphone?

11:07 - Sean
It is also dependent upon the computer that is hosting the conference call

11:07 - Neil Stephenson
i have noticed that Skype is much better than iChat in terms of bandwidth issues

11:08 - Sheryl A. McCoy
30 something

11:11 - julie
can we use video in a 10-user chat?

11:17 - Sean
You have to have a comptuer with significant CPU power

11:26 - Neil Stephenson
@jackie.. thanks! I loved the experience

11:28 - Sean
Video is only one-to-one

11:31 - langwitches
Haves started Around the World with 80 schools http://aroundtheworldwith80schools.wikispaces.com/ as a way to connect with other schools via Skype

11:35 - Shamblesguru 2
I think if confence then video does not work ... but Skype promise having this as an option in the future

http://www.speedofcreativity.org/2009/02/11/student-created-virtual-field-trips-howe-public-schools-live-and-on-location/

11:46 - Peggy George
you can't use video in the conference call

11:55 - Lorna
video only one to one

12:03 - Rob G.
My neighbor claims he plays guitar with his brother in Japan via Skype. Haven't seen that yet myself.

12:04 - derrallg
@langwitches loved that idea is it too late ot begin participating

12:12 - langwitches
We started out with skyping with Brian's class in Nevada

12:23 - Peggy George
but you can video an entire room of students on a single camera during a 1:1 call

12:25 - Nancy Pratt
We used skype with our ed tech group--wonderful Peggy came in and helped moderate a discussion actually about skype and video conferencing in the classroom

12:28 - April Chamberlain
neighbor introduced newborn to family around the world using skype

12:31 - AdamJB
I was on a ethnography research project that used Skype to create a conference between English-learning students in Morocco with my own Univ of Illinois English educator classroom.

12:32 - Catherine Laguna
If I wanted to do a lesson with another class, do I coach the kids on how to talk or just let them go?

12:42 - Deb
what is the difference between using skype and elluminate

12:49 - Thomas - Atlanta
@lanngwitches That sounds like a fun projects with Skype.

12:50 - ellen pham
You can't sing in unison together... there is a lag : (

13:05 - Peggy George
Yes Sue Waters is an incredible resource for ALL things web 2.0!!!

13:10 - Neil Stephenson
Catherine - I think the key is having a task for the students to work on together =- not just talk

13:19 - Paul R wood
We have a class working with a young Sudanese refugee in Israel helping him to try and achieve his GED so he can possibly come to the US.

13:21 - Lorraine Leo
@Catherine My experience is that it is best when practiced, videoconference standards set up

13:41 - Rob G.
@ellen Yes, lag is why I'm skeptical about trying to use it for music. But people are trying--good for them.

13:58 - CharleneBlohm
@Lorraine Leo - could you share your videoconf. standards?

14:00 - Peggy George
Our blog post of the week this week is from Lisa Parisi and I'll share what she has done to use Skype with clear purpose with her students!

14:10 - Shamblesguru 2
"Bunch" of pirates ;-)

14:11 - Neil Stephenson
Here's my students again - talking to a museum curator across the country. I liked it because he was talking to them about their work - not ust his: http://thinkinginmind.blogspot.com/2009/02/skype-with-sheldon.html

14:59 - Catherine Laguna
Thanks Neil!

15:00 - ellen pham

16:30 -

@Ellen - any solutions?

16:30 -

Is there a ning or Wiki where educators have put examples of their Skype projects?

16:31 -

17:04 -
Peggy George
yes Jackie-it will be in our sharetabs--and you can sign your classroom up and say you're looking for a class to link up with for a specific project

17:24 -

Nice example of using Skype to connect elementary students with a book author: http://www.nvsd44.bc.ca/sitecore/content/Home/Staff/UZ/VanAlstyneA12161/Blog/eLiteracy/Literacy%20and%20Compassion.aspx?url=/sitecore/content/Home/Staff/UZ/VanAlstyneA12161/Blog/eLiteracy/Literacy%20and%20Compassion&Parent=/*/content/Home/Staff/UZ/VanAlstyneA12161/Blog/eLiteracy

17:40 -
Shamblesguru 2
Some Edu/Skype e.g.s at http://www.shambles.net/pages/staff/voiceip/

19:19 -

On google I found delays htough - are there delays with skye?

20:55 -
Neil Stephenson
@maureen - I'm sure there are - I haven't looked. Trying Googling "skype recorder for pc"

20:59 -
Peggy George
it's the most wonderful planning tool! When we have local planning meetings and someone can't attend in person they join the group via Skype. Works great!

21:02 -
Rebecca
sound and video delyas

21:04 -
durff
i think there are few delays

21:05 -
AdamJB
I've been using it a lot to keep up with contacts overseas. I used it a lot to call home too, without charging my cell up through the roof.

21:06 -
JoNelle
sometimes delays w/skype

21:33 -
Nancy Pratt
I use it also to talk with my sister who lives in Holland (I live in Arizona)

21:40 -

I like Call Recorder, but I need a free option for recording SKype video - any ideas?

22:45 -
dsawyer33
We need to focus less on the idea of predetors which is really minimal and focus more on online bullying.

22:46 -

23:10 -

Has anyone heard of any educational "field trips" to schools overseas? It's something I've gotten a taste of, but I'd really like to get involved at another level with a program that does something like that...

23:16 -
Neil Stephenson
@Bryan I couldn't find a free one - the $10 (when I bought it) was well worth it.

23:26 -
durff
@Adam yes

23:31 -
gnoack
I like using the call land lines or cell phones feature to call into webinars. But you have to have an account, $.02/min i think.

i would encourage everyone to explore https://extras.skype.com/ and see how you can add more functionality in their basic skype software through 100ds of skype plugins

Neil Stephenson
@Wes - myself and others have had inappropriate spamming while on Skype - any thoughts?

29:20 -
gnoack
@neil. I get a lot of these when my status is set to "Skype Me".

29:22 -
Peggy George
you can block anyone you don't want to connect with you

29:47 -
Wesley Fryer
Wow $2.95 per month is great

29:57 -
mireille
would you say that again

29:58 -
Deb
Can you show what this looks like from the computer side?

30:00 -
ellen pham
I've never put my status on skype me, but I still occasionally get spam- i just block the person/ account

30:03 -
durff
like those people who want you to buy something - love the block!

30:08 -
casterline
must go...actually on vaca and hubbie wants to "do something" imagine that! This was GREAT!

30:09 -
gnoack

30:10 -

30:14 -

@RobG - Is Greg Stefanich still teaching?

30:26 -
Lorraine Leo
I skype out to elderly who do not have computers who absolutely love to hear the sounds of children's voices singing, saying poetry etc.

30:31 -
Neil Stephenson
@gnoack - I always have my setting on "ONLINE" - i still get it.. and so do others that I know

31:01 -
derrallg
@lorraine those are probably very moving sessions for both childrena and adults

31:08 -
Rob G.
@John Yes--traveling a lot... Greg just returned from Africa, in fact.

31:08 -

Kids need to learn how to use these tools appropriately. Part of digital citizenship

31:13 -
Jackiegerstein
That's why I would like to see some central place for Skype in the classroom examples

31:16 -
kapil 1
all im clients like yahoo messenger have pretty much added lot of features that skype has ..like calling landline phones, voice or video chat

31:41 -
Deb
We need to get the word out to the elderly.

31:46 -
Lorna
@ Jackie the share tabs from todays session has the resources who want

31:46 -
Nancy Pratt
Anybody know if a good solid curriculum for citizenship?

31:52 -
Deb
Bring AARP into one of our meeitngs

32:02 -
John Cannon
@RobG - Thanks...will contact him to see if he will Skype-in to my class...

32:06 -
Noble
has anyone used flashmeeting? http://flashmeeting.e2bn.net/

32:08 -
Nancy Pratt
digital citizenship that is...

32:09 -
derrallg
I keep in touch with my mom so much more that we can send a quick chat message on Skype

32:10 -
alicebarr
Iste has a great book on digital citizenship

32:11 -
Peggy George
@Nancy--that would be a great topic for a future show!! We'll do it!

32:19 -
Catherine Laguna
Where id the setting on skype that you are talking about "skype me"

32:19 -
Jackiegerstein
@Lorna - how can the teachers here who have used Skype to add their projects?

32:29 -
lindseyb16
Doing a schoolwide unit on tolerance where would I find skype partners?

32:29 -
Wesley Fryer
@NancyPratt Hello!

32:31 -
Ed Bujak
how about "sexting" - texting with photos of minors even when the photos is of the minor him/herself - is being viewed legally as "child pornography"

32:48 -
gnoack
@neil, Not sure then, perhaps it's something you have in your settings/profile that spammers are trolling for and see.

32:48 -
kapil 1
http://skypeinschools.pbwiki.com/ , a great wiki for use of skype in schools

33:26 -

some ideas on use of skype in classroom in this wiki http://technologypd.pbwiki.com/Skype+in+Education

34:37 -

no web cam on scribblar though, but simple enough that anyone can get up and running with it in a few minutes...

34:40 -
Wesley Fryer
Here is Tammy Parks' Broadcast Journalism 2.0 project (Collaboration 2.0) project using Skype to bring in virtual guest speakers to her class: http://www.cilc.org/search/collaboration.aspx?id=467

34:42 -
Jackiegerstein
@kapil 1 - http://skypeinschools.pbwiki.com/ seems like a good resource - maybe teachers will add their projects to this wiki

34:49 -
Shamblesguru 2
Didn;t know about www.scribblar.com/ ... thanks

35:06 -
Wesley Fryer
@Jackiegerstein yes that wiki IS a great resource, a good way to find classroom partners

35:31 -
Lorraine Leo
is there a skype educator forum where teachers can post questions regarding logistics etc that come up?

35:39 -
ellen pham
Example of scribblar used on EFL Classroom:

35:41 -
ellen pham
http://eflclassroom.com/scribblar.html

35:50 -
dreambition/brad
@Jackie/Wes yes we need to spread the word about http://skypeinschools.pbwiki.com/ so that it can become a robust directory and teachers will be able to connect with others more easily

35:51 -
Neil Stephenson
I love the examples where students are talking about THEIR work - getting outside voices and feedback - that is where the technology is so powerful/

35:56 -
Nancy Pratt
This is such a great post, Peggy--

35:56 -

that never worked for me

35:59 -

yes definitely, spread the word, share your successes! :-)

36:08 -
durff
Parisi is soooo lucky

36:25 -
Ed Bujak
I hear you, but some administrators have no clue about technology in education, Web 2.0 .. they fear technology!!

36:25 -
Wesley Fryer
@Neil I agree 100% Getting students to share their voices and be empowered to use these tools is the key

36:33 -
Deb
this would be wonderful for foreign language teachers

36:41 -
kim caise
http://www.sharetabs.com/?classroom20live02142009

36:55 -
gnoack
@neil, have you changed your settings to only allow people in your contacts list to contact you? That would solve the problem.

36:55 -
Neil Stephenson
@wes - I want to share my success: http://thinkinginmind.blogspot.com/2009/02/skype-with-sheldon.html

36:56 -
April Chamberlain
@Ed Bujak - Find tech directors who are not opposed and get them together

37:19 -
Peggy George
administrators need to be educated to the power of skype--they need to see how it can help students meet learning goals :-)

37:36 -
Thomas - Atlanta
Used skype to have Middle School students talk to a group of teachers on their PD day about their Archetype project http://tullocharchetypes.ning.com/

37:47 -
Neil Stephenson
share tabs.. very cool.. thanks!

37:59 -
Peggy George
our links aren't comprehensive because there are soooooo many but almost every site we share will lead you to other sites too! have fun exploring!!

38:04 -
Rob G.
Administrators need to actually use Skype to see the benefits for themselves. As soon as they do, they'll be encouraging others.

38:06 -
Nancy Pratt
Love Sharetabs...can you add to it?

38:07 -
lindseyb16
One of our teachers used skype to teach her class in Mass from Austria

38:11 -

You can run Skype from a USB device which means you can use it on any machine which is online. See link: http://joedale.typepad.com/integrating_ict_into_the_/2008/07/record-and-edit.html

Good question.

44:47 -

I think we want to always remember to keep things relavent. Also we can start small--with teachers in our own buildings and districts, and even towns.

@Bryan - like all uses of technology - it comes down to the tasks we are asking students to engage in. If your using skype to use skype - you're wasting your time..

45:49 -
Sean
no doubt wes -- use it to share and communicate together

46:00 -
K Carter
lesson plans and classrooms that want to communicate would be great

46:15 -
Ian Nairn
folks - great session again - now 6pm in the UK

46:44 -
Lorraine Leo
Pre-planning between two teachers, specific purpose, guidelines setup prior to call, also have students have response in mind

46:53 -
Nancy Pratt
I feel that as we engage the students, we will help them learn to think and create.

46:58 -
April Chamberlain
It seems that there is always a discussion of forums in Classroom 2.0 where someone is looking for someone else to collaborate with.

46:59 -
Peggy George
JoNelle will be presenting at NECC about videoconferencing

47:05 -
durff
don't forget the "hotseat" and "talking stick"

47:07 -
joedale
@Ian are you on Twitter?

47:17 -
Neil Stephenson
i think skype is the same as all the tools we use - we need to ask ourselves "WHY are we using this?" What am I gaining with Skype that I couldn't do without it

47:20 -
Larry Kearns
What is the best way to make contact with another teacher interested in using skype betweein classrooms?

47:27 -
Ian Nairn
yes - just IanNairn

47:39 -
joedale
@Ian - Cheers

47:41 -
Peggy George
excellent point--important to think of it as blended learning activity--doesn't all have to be online at same time

47:45 -
April Chamberlain
We use Skype to call people all over for Kindergarten students as a part of their study in My Big Backyard.

47:56 -
durff
that is best practice use of ALL tools

48:00 -
