08:53 -
Peggy George
Today's show topic is podcasting with our special guest, Kevin Honeycutt!

09:28 -
Peggy George
@Kimberly--you might try printing the chat as documentation for PD credit.

10:06 -
Peggy George
Yes a CR20 LIVE theme!!! Let's do it!!

10:12 -
Kimberly
I'll try that thanks

10:15 -
ewrobel
Keep playing the blues

10:33 -
ewrobel
somehow the blues are lifting my spirits!

10:44 -
Peggy George
@deb-nh-can you change your send setting to this room so everyone can see your messages?

11:01 -
Peggy George
love it!!!

11:38 -
Brenda Muench
@kmulford Kevin started a google doc. It's not even close to done. Please come contribute!

11:59 -
Peggy George
@Brenda URL for google doc??

12:06 -
Tammy Moore
Anyone here use OneNote and figured out how to use the recorder tool to record off the net? It would be so neat to recod this presentation into OneNote directly while I write my notes. :)

13:04 -
Brenda Muench
https://docs.google.com/Doc?id=dcnf8z8k_8g334g2cm&hl=en

13:09 -
Peggy George
funny how even the blues can lift your spirits. :-)

13:27 -
Tammy Moore
Emjoying the music :)

13:46 -
Peggy George
that link said I didn't have access--do we need to be invited as collaborators?

14:30 -
Peggy George
Our very own concert! This is so much fun!!

14:42 -
Brenda Muench
I think so but I think Kevin needs email addresses for that. Is there a way to make a google doc open to everyone like a wiki?

15:04 -
Peggy George
yes Kevin can do it if he created the doc--make it public

15:13 -
Nita Shori
Thanks Kevin

15:17 -
Annettte S
@Tammy I can print the whiteboard to onenote and then save the notes if that helps

15:23 -
Kevin H
You're nice!

15:26 -
kmulford
It gives you a place to request to be included.

15:32 -
barry
SCREENTOASTER.com for Net recording. Works great.

15:37 -
ewrobel
thank you Kevin

15:44 -
kmulford
Snort! DOn't believe THAT!

29:14 -
Kim Caise
excellent adjective!

29:21 -
Nita Shori
@rob m - k-2 students require more teacher support, but it is possible

29:44 -
kas
use podcast to have students record videos of their chants to help them with math vocabulary, language usage vocabulary, etc. Then i post on wiki so kiddos can practice at home

29:44 -
Peter H.

33:55 -
Peggy George
Steve H-thank you so much for doing that!!!

33:57 -
clong
Only 3 of our teachers have created podcasts with their students on my campus...haven't got the others to buy into it quite yet

34:02 -
kas
I have a free southwest ticket too so if they fly there, that would be great!

34:06 -
jeffmason

34:33 -

34:37 -

34:37 -
Kathy Matthes
Hello!

35:01 -
Ian Nairn - UK
other than in second-life will folks from overseas be able to connect into kevin's unconference?

35:17 -
Peggy George
a very easy way to help teachers see the potential of audio that could lead to podcasting is using VoiceThread

35:25 -
Nita Shori
@rob: Here's a link to our grade 1 podcast on retelling a story http://corlissdesigns.edublogs.org/2009/02/04/the-lazy-pig/

35:27 -
lindseyb16
elluminate sessions ian

35:27 -
Steve H.
@Ian: Yes, through Elluminate.

35:29 -
Donelle
i just got in and missed the unconference idea...when is it happening?

35:38 -
Peggy George
@Ian-yes we can access via Elluminate too

36:09 -
Peggy George
that was such a creative idea for beginning his podcasting "driving podcasts" :-)

36:43 -
rob m
Thanks Nita i just booked marked it to Diggo for our ict leaders, will check it out later

36:45 -
Lorna Costantini
You just have to ask

36:57 -
deb-nh
oral history podcasts are excellent.. we should be getting the WWII vets as they are dying off!

37:10 -
Peggy George
please keep sharing your links and questions and ideas here. The chat will be saved for us to check out the links later. :-)

37:12 -

LOC has the Veterans Project for WW2 oral history. A podcast version would be a great idea!

37:46 -
Kim Caise
beginning of May 2009

38:03 -
rob m
just finsihed the lucky charms project hosted by Jennifer Wagner, my kids loved it, we created a voice thread

38:16 -
Shawn Wheeler
OUTSTANDING!!!

38:20 -
Peggy George
I really like that he is emphasizing audio and not "podcast"--much more flexible!

38:35 -
Peggy George
Does that message sound familiar, Shawn?? :-)

38:35 -
Chris L
Makes me feel better - do podcasts with students but don't get into the RSS Feed stuff!

38:50 -
Shawn Wheeler
Yes Peggy, I have heard that before. :)

38:50 -
lindseyb16
yes the rss seems overwhelming, but recording in audcity is a cinch

38:51 -
deb-nh
yesterday at a conference at the University of New Hampshire, Alan November suggested to a Spanish teacher that she get her on motivated students to do and share podcasts of all spanish speaking countries.

39:05 -
Nita Shori
Kids usually perform better on podcasting as opposed to live presenting in front of the entire class

39:13 -
MOH
Yes emphasising that it is the use of audio would be more accessible for my teaching colleagues

39:22 -
calvamom
yes, real useful products for a real audience!

39:32 -
Peggy George
we have some excellent links in the sharetabs and resources today with examples, tutorials, etc. that you can access later.

39:47 -
deb-nh
We need to get the walls to come down in education!

39:58 -
Peggy George
http://www.sharetabs.com/?classroom20live03212009

40:24 -
Peggy George
@deb-nh definitely!! people like Kevin are helping us to do this--bring down the walls!

40:31 -
Brenda Muench
and it's editable!

40:35 -
lindseyb16
really how many kids enjoy reading out loud to class?

40:38 -
Lorraine Leo
I like the idea of rehearsing many times..

40:46 -
deb-nh
Right now I am fighting for time against can programs in reading and math!

40:54 -
calvamom
podcast can be edited, too. I always mess up the for the first round, so they can see it is fixable.

41:02 -
jackiegerstein
Power of online tools - can try out different roles!

41:05 -
rob m
that is a good point, the rehearsing part....

41:08 -
lindseyb16
rehearsal is such good reinforcement

41:09 -
kmulford
Oooh, I like that phrase... "the editing can be benevolent"

41:14 -
Heather
testing podcasts as a way to teach academic vocab to ELLs. they are given podcasts with key vocab- the word, definition, and example sentence in English and in Spanish. Students are given podcasts on their bus ride to our museum classes. Trying to see if the means justifies the end (increase in vocab. retention and comprehension)

41:15 -
jeffmason
safe to make mistakes

41:20 -
Kathy Matthes
Yes, that is a great story.

41:20 -
Brenda Muench
My kids won't edit their written thoughts but let them do it audio and they'll spend hours making it sound just right

41:21 -
Peggy George
I feel the same way as the kid he is describing!! What a relief to know if doesn't have to be perfect before you publish!

41:27 -
Scott B
Great Point !

41:28 -
MIShawn
Take the two cans, put a string between 'em . . .

41:33 -
Rebecca 1
are you using garage band to edit?

41:38 -
Neil Stephenson
the attention to detail - to make their podcasts perfect - is such a good habit of mind

41:41 -
deb-nh
increase fluency

42:01 -
nhill
some students still struggle with the sound of their own voice. I can understand that...I am the same way.

42:11 -
chuckholland
My students will spend more time on an audio then they will on written work.

42:16 -
jeffmason
if there are no penalty for mistakes, there is lowered risk in trying

42:20 -
Brenda Muench
@rebecca GB works. We're pc school so we use audacity

42:21 -
CharleneBlohm
So...podcasting works with PreK and K kids too?

42:23 -
Peggy George
I love the StudyCasts that Brent Coley uses with his students to help them study and learn the content for classes!

42:26 -
Troy
GarageBand works wonderfully. Those on a Mac will appreciate using it. Audacity is free and cross platform.

42:31 -
Neil Stephenson
i teach grade 7 - and do alot of historical iMovies/Podcasts?voicethread.. many students hate the sound of their voice

42:42 -
chuckholland
We use Audacity at our school

42:48 -
Kathy Matthes
I use a podcast assignment in my business writing class.

42:49 -
rob m
lol the first time they hear their voices is really neat

42:52 -
Peggy George
http://www.mrcoley.com/studycast/index.htm

42:52 -
Rebecca 1
Troy - have you layerd sound with a visual - such as a slide show?

43:01 -
calvamom
Garageband and audacity is a very easy combination to learn

43:02 -
Nita Shori
Our board only has Audacity and we can only use what's provided. Can't download our own

43:05 -
Kathy Matthes
The students have to create a multi-cultural podcast after writing the script.

43:05 -
nhill
I have 7th grade too Neil...some love it...some don't like to hear their voice.

43:13 -
Peter H.
I love the context so far.

43:16 -
Peggy George
talk about using it with younger kids Kevin

43:22 -
Neil Stephenson
I have used podcasts for self-assessment.. its such a powerful tools

43:23 -
Troy
Yes. Animoto is web site will do that easily.

43:27 -
Shawn Wheeler
There is a high school teacher in Tucson doing this same concept with a low watt radio station. I thought it would be so cool to do with kids and a podcast station.

43:30 -
Maureen
@Neil I find that some kids really do not want to record their own voices, but will write the script and ask a friend to record for them. That's OK with me.

43:36 -
kmulford
This idea of audience size brings up the question we struggle with in our district. Maybe Kevin will address the idea of WHERE to share these podcasts in a relatively protected environemnt -- conservative community, barely lets me have student blogs, etc.

43:38 -
chuckholland
Audacity is a free download http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

43:47 -
plnaugle
My English class scripted interviews at the scene of the Gettsburg Address to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Lincoln's birthday and created podcasts of their scripts. Thanks to Jen Wagner for the great idea.

43:47 -
Neil Stephenson
@maurenn.. i'm the same.. i

43:52 -
MIShawn
Pulp Motion would fit in there too, but not as flexible.

43:55 -
sylviamartinez
how important is having the kids edit?

43:59 -
Neil Stephenson
@maureen - I've had kids get their paretn to record some parts

44:00 -
Chris L
I love using PhotoStory and the audio in this program with K-4 students

44:06 -
Nita Shori
@Neil : I think using it for assessment is a great idea,

44:12 -
Kathy Matthes
g-cast allows students to record their speeches over the phone.

44:14 -
Troy
Podcasting can be for teachers to get professional development too.

44:14 -
Kim Caise
i love PhotoStory!

44:15 -
Brenda Muench
@kmulford can't you share with parents and grandparents?

44:18 -
Peggy George
@Shawn Wheeler--students would love being on a radio show!! Reminds me of the radio show that Matt Montagne does with his HS students called Gator Radio. It's great!

44:30 -
Kathy Matthes
Is there a way to make the chat window bigger?

44:31 -
Jennifer McCaleb
I have same issue as Kmulford..conservative atmosphere

44:35 -
Peggy George
Isn't it incredible what you can learn from your PLN??!!

44:41 -
clong
We use PhotoStory 3 too and then convert it to an MP4 to post on our school's website

44:56 -
nhill
we use Windows Movie Maker quite a bit.

44:58 -
Kathy Matthes
Moderators: Can you make the chat window bigger?

44:59 -
MIShawn
Speedbumps: Tether your iPhone to your 'puter ... ;-)

45:03 -
Nita Shori
When I give students a behaviour sheet to fill out every now and then, they just scribble some usual "I promise" etc. but having them record would be so much more useful

45:04 -
Steve H.
@Kathy: View > Layouts > Wide

45:07 -
kmulford
@Brenda... Looking for a relatively protected web space... so feedback for invitees only... ?

45:10 -
Maureen
@clong what do you use to convert from wmv to mp4?

45:21 -
Kathy Matthes
thanks

45:23 -
clong
I've also podcasted from my cell phone using Gcast

45:24 -
rob m
clong what do you use for converting files

45:24 -
Neil Stephenson
Here's some ideas on using Garageband (and Audacity) for self-assessment: http://edcommunity.apple.com/ali/story.php?itemID=10990

45:41 -
Nita Shori
@ Neil thanks for the link

45:49 -
Kim Caise
ning is piloting an ad free ning for grades 7 - 12 @kmulford

45:56 -
deb-nh
it's teaching personal integrity

45:59 -
kmulford
@robm: zamzar,com

46:07 -
Troy
-Those with conservative issues - you can post things internally within a district. However, understand that anything you post "could" be moved outside that network eventually. (Think cell phone pictures sent to one person).

@kmulford I know Wordpress allows you to make posts private (you need a password to see/hear them) and you can moderate comments. Plus you can host wordpress MU on your own server

My AP Calculus kids made them using screencast-o-matic for audio and video to review topics for the AP exam then embedded them in our class wiki. We then converted them to mp4's and put on our podbean site. They LOVED it!

in our local paper today, our district listed the programs they will be prioritizing to save money; as usual elementary art, p.e., and music are on the list again - as a classroom teacher, that fills me with dread for my students!

gcast and gabcast are great free tools for recording audio/podcasts from your phone

51:40 -

51:46 -

to be cut!

52:01 -

Gcast & Gabcast are blocked by many districts.

Gcast on your cellphone

they are on the same list with AP, IB classes, magnet school programs, new math textbooks for elementary, and teachers losing jobs. I worry that p.e. music, and art could be gone

Visited @dogtrax this past week and watched his kids recording podcasts. They spread out all over the room. Some had these little cardboard cubbies they put around themselves to help isolate them from the hum of the classroom. Seems to work well for them.

54:11 -
kas
i'm hopinjg to show artsnack as another reason we need to protect the arts. Any other ideas?

54:13 -
Troy
If we want kids to use the tools on a long term basis, teachers need to be comfortable with the technology and the usage. In iTunes, there are tons of classroom podcasts that have been started and abandoned. However, if teachers use it on a personal level, they are much more likely to use it effectively with students.

54:14 -

Peggy George
I experienced the difference between coaching and nagging yesterday at the Children's Museum--all but one of them was positive and encouraging to the kids-one nagged and scowled!

56:02 -
kmulford
Our library is a community space... open doors all the time, with kids flowing in and out. Different strokes, I guess.

56:17 -
Kimberly
I do the hot spot thing in the hall way and 4 class rooms respect it and keep quiet when kids are recording

56:29 -

going to try cardboard tubes - thx BevKeefer

56:41 -
BevKeefer
I covered the ends with duct tape

56:46 -

yes, it helps kids to learn to respect others' creative space.

I set up my 2nd graders to record for VTs... one was the producer- pushed record and stop, another did the save and the other got to talk. Even 2nd graders can use the tech with only a little instruction. They enjoyed being independent and it left me free to work with other kids who were finishing their projects.

PLN's are different than Professional Learning Communities.

I agree - my PLN is always so supportive- no one at school has any idea of what I am talking about... feel like an alien at times.

1:00:35 -
Eureka
I had my students create speaking avatars like the one below as a way to do book reports, share classroom information to parents via a free website like this weebly site. A lot of students have created their own websites by using the weebly website. Using the voki is another way that you can get reluctant writers to publish their work. A student might not have the coordination to type or write but he/she can use voki to have the avatar do the speaking.

from AK Jenny Definitly has to be mentored -- the feeling that . . .me . . . I have something of value to add to this community. . . and it is the same thing that my students with disablities that have to be taught -- that their ideas are valuable. . . and are worth sharing with others. . . on such a large scale.

yes, much more focused on your interests by your personl choice of connections,

1:01:37 -

It's not the blockage coming from the district. It's concerns and fears from parents...

@kas Mixcraft is simlar for PC- but $ Use audacity and grab some loops for the kids to use

1:13:23 -
lindseyb16
jamstudio.com has education grants

acoustica mixcraft is similar to garageband for the PC, but costs $$

@rand. I started with a computer club of about 8 students. Here's the detail http://podcastinghelpline.blogspot.com/

1:13:35 -
Peter H.
I have a question - we are reading Lois Lowry's The Giver for my 8th grade class. Could I have students read aloud the chapters together, creating podcasts, for use in the future? Some of my kids would benefit from hearing it read aloud. We have the tapes that we purchased, but that is an obsolete technology for many of our kids (to use a Giver word).

1:13:39 -

Jeff, what if just used for my classroom?

Nancy J.

1:15:59 -
Peter H.
I have a Giver wiki that's for my students only - could I post chapter podcasts there? We own 200 copies of the book!

Will all the audio be published including this bit?

1:17:13 -
Peggy George
Kevin-I'm curious if podcasting had anything to do with leading the high school to produce their movie

1:17:16 -
Nita Shori
can give teachers a mark for Oral language, writing, reading, co-operation and so many other things

1:17:16 -
Tammy Moore
For those wanting their kids to make their own music - look into MAGIX 14. My daughter, who has been learning guitar for only a year, created a fantastic composition using it.

@christina you can do this with a cheap mic! don't spend lots in the beginning

1:21:32 -

I tell students don't post anything on your blog, record on your podcast that you wouldn't want your principle, parents, or friends to see.

1:21:32 -

1:21:49 -

@Christina Could get a cheap digital voice recorder and then use one of your 'puters.

1:21:55 -
Craig Jackson
Christina, yuo can use GCast and use a phone to do your podcast, or you can use talkshoe and do the same thing.

1:21:58 -

Christina, can be very simple

To start podcasting all you need is Audacity (free) and a $10 microphone from Target which sounds fine!

1:22:07 -
Maureen
You can use a cheap mic... but I really love the blue snowflake mic- relatively cheap. I use audacity- free

Christina- get the smaller one- the snowflake- the snowball is a pain to tote around.

1:24:17 -
kmulford
If you have an iPod, the Belkin is available through APple store for less than $35... Cheaper alternative...

1:24:21 -
Peggy George
that was a rough 3-days even though it was excellent training--just so much easier now!!

1:24:27 -

try podcasting for self-assessment - the amount of confidence and informatoin students will share about their work is amazing. It has changed my entire teaching world: feed:middleschoolmatters.com/?feed=rss2

1:26:04 -
TerrySmith
There are some very good Youtube tutorials as well - just search - audacity.

1:26:14 -

it's so important for IT directors and teachers to be talking to each other! they are a team!!

1:29:29 -

possibly ask them to bring their'creative talents' to helping us solve our problems

1:30:30 -

Hi hear that, our IT director is beyond control freak. Get the ear of your school board has been effective so far, IT director hates it

1:30:31 -
SnyderSensei
I have trouble teaching that to my students when my content is blocked as well . Teachers need ways to input into AUP's rather than just lawyers, tech folk and divisional personel.

1:30:34 -
kmulford
It's not a podcast, so it's a bit off-topic for this, but it is about audio recording, etc.

1:30:36 -
Rebecca 1
April - love that idea! THat has ben sorely missing - bridging the tech and the users

1:30:45 -

Has the broken survey link been figured out?

1:31:10 -
TerrySmith
the IT people are not actively involved in the exploraitons - they need to be in the ocnversation

1:31:12 -
Peggy George
We should have a show on ways for IT directors and teachers to collaborate!

1:31:12 -

IT in school is horribly understaffed - it's a natural reaction

1:31:15 -
Nancy J.
I embrace the nerd in me - integrationist

1:31:19 -
sylviamartinez
but it has to change

1:31:27 -
April C - AL
We always start our tech meeting with 1-2 minute video or student product to show IT how what they do or can do impact student learning.

1:31:32 -

Yes!!!!!!!!!

1:31:37 -
Tammy Moore
LOL, that always helps

1:31:45 -

Getting the tech directors to talk to teacher is often tough, how do you get them in here

I was just thinking about my struggling writers. . . (I am a special ed teacher) and they could read their drafts into a personal podcast. . . and then listen to it in order to move toward editing. . . and could have . . . whole writing process done something like this. . . this . . .
