Moderator (Lorna Costantini): Hello everyone If you have not done so already, please run the audio set up wizard under tools> audio set up wizard

Moderator (Lorna Costantini): If you are new to our show, please watch the video to find out how to participate

Moderator (Lorna Costantini): You can also enjoy listening to our preshow music :)

mkefgen: My Tools doesn't give me an audio choice. I can hear the welcome video. Will I be able to hear the morning session?

Tammy Moore: Can you hear Kim right now?

mkefgen: Right now the getting started video is playing and I can hear it.

Moderator (Lorna Costantini): you will be fine then

Moderator (Kim Caise): did you hear me speaking a few minutes ago

Tammy Moore: If you think that you did not hear Kim, go to Tools/Audio/Audio Setup Wizard

Tammy Moore: It will walk you through

Tammy Moore: :)

mkefgen: no, I haven't heard you speak. I don't have an audio choice in my tools.

Tammy Moore: Ahhh, we had that with a few students after the Christmas holidays in our Elluminate

Tammy Moore: Log out and back in

Tammy Moore: THat will fix it

Big Dog: are you permitting any participants to speak?

Moderator (Kim Caise): thank you Tammy! haven't experienced that before

Tammy Moore: We had about 20 students that first week back after Christmas break

Tammy Moore: that had the audio missing in the tool bar

Big Dog: thank you

Tammy Moore: One log out and back in fixed that for all but one student

Moderator (Kim Caise): wow, never heard of having that problem. wonder what caused it

Tammy Moore: I think it had something to do with the update that was released over the holidays. Most students were just fine

Tammy Moore: just a few had it happen

Tammy Moore: Easy fix though

Moderator (Lorna Costantini): tweet the show out everyone :)

Moderator (Kim Caise): thanks for the reminder lorna!

mkefgen to Lorna Costantini, Kim Caise: I still cannot find audio in the tools menu even though I logged out and back in. Is there some setting on my computer that may be causing this. I have been involved with these discussions before and I could hear everything.

Kathy S: I like free :-)

jai.venaik: Eracism was fun ! also the new concept started

mrsdurff: Amen to free

vanhookc: Hope elluminate is free???

McTeach: jsanderson...well, you're practically next door!!

jai.venaik: of Globalization Outsourcing and many things is going to be good ttoo

mrsdurff: @vanhookc not

Daniel: does anyone have some resources like permission forms for minors to participate on cam?

vanhookc: @mrsdurff - Hi!!! i thought she said illuminate could be free

mrsdurff: hi!

jai.venaik: is it ?

McTeach: Free is good!

Lucian Cornel Duma , Romania: Hy everybody

Daniel: tnx

mrsdurff: i need more coffee

Paula Naugle: Elluminate has a free room for three participants.

Maureen: Anyone using tokbox?

Caroline: Some schools are including photo and video/web conferencing permissions at registration time.

vanhookc: ahhhhh! some free is a good thing

mrsdurff: we call it the hot seat

Paula Naugle: Not using Tokbox yet.

Daniel: that's if they're ahead of the game

mrsdurff: only kid in hot seat can talk/hold mic

Brian NYC: yeah I use toxbox with my students in Math

Daniel: thinking ahead

mrsdurff: i use a desktop

Maureen: I have to figure out how to connect 120 kids btwn 2 chorus grps in Berlin and US...

mrsdurff: wow

Esther: Hi luis Marcelo. Sou de Santa Catarina, vivo en Iowa agora.

jai.venaik: sameproblem faced by us in India also Maureen

Paula Naugle: @Maureen that sounds like a great project.

mrsdurff: do a handshake @maureen on a ning

mrsdurff: or in Edmodo

mrsdurff: oir even Voicethread

vanhookc: tough part is testing all the external mic and speakers, while or as before you start....gets tricky

jai.venaik: but if its good quality it woks well

Maureen: @Paula- chorus teacher wants to connect- kids are learning same song. Lots of ideas, but figuring out best way is hard

jai.venaik: ive tried it in my skool

Paula Naugle: Need to know how to do split screen for Skype.

mrsdurff: @Maureen - dimdim?

Daniel: for skyp just use PiP

mrsdurff: @Maureen OoVoo ?

Paula Naugle: @Daniel What is PIP?

mrsdurff: @Maureen - a live connection?

Daniel: Picturre in Picture

vanhookc: if possible explain those split screens in illuminate - multiple cams....maybe explain on wiki or something. THANKS

Daniel: and max the size of the screen

Maureen: Lisa, just not sure, haven't had the experience. Bandwidth wasn't good enuf in past. Hope to meet w/teacher and have a plan on Tuesday. Looking for ideas still.

Paula Naugle: @Daniel Is that an options on Skype?

mrsdurff: if asynch - I would suggest VT

Daniel: yes

jai.venaik: how do you do multiple conferemcing with skype?

Suzie Martin: I think online Jeopardy competitions is something my teachers would be interested in.

Daniel: view full screen

mrsdurff: record on Audacity first

Paula Naugle: @Daniel Thank you.

Daniel: and your own picture enlarges

mrsdurff: both choruses singing

Daniel: YW

jgates513: good point on HOTS - "show and tell" just doesn't work. Kids lose interest too quickly

mrsdurff: then upload to the VT

Maureen: @mrsdurff asynch and synch- but time dif are hard.

mrsdurff: kids can listen to each other and comment

clinds: I came in a couple minutes late so I apologize if I'm repeating what someone has said. Is anyone using a more robust teleconferencing system at their school? I've been using Skype but due to school bandwith it's always choppy and hard to hear students who are sharing.

Daniel: great idea

mrsdurff: make a blog for both classes to visit

Heather 1 to charles.scott@rasmussen.edu: even though it focuses on K-12 it can be applied to what we do :)

sudhanshi.ci: :)

Daniel: elluminate is great for low bandwidth situations

mrsdurff: @clinds I prefer Skype

monika: dabbleboard on a ning site works great

Daniel: I love back channel chats

Daniel: awesome

jgates513: @cinds - what state r u in?

jai.venaik: ning is great !

monika: skitch is great for mac too

John Thompson: Probably not a Skype problem but something with your school network.

Lucian Cornel Duma , Romania: I used Flashmeeting in the projects

Maureen: @mrsdurff- I set up a blog, but debating whether to have all kids with own blogs- too much to moderate... or just give them permissions. Did intial videos last week, but still trying to work out direct connections

mrsdurff: @monika - you can request they remove ads if used with K12 students

sudhanshi.ci: @jay-tru

clinds: @Daniel - Are you using the free Elluminate opportunity through Learn Central

Brian NYC: yes I have a Learn central account

Daniel: just Three for Free

clinds: @jgates513- I'm in MA.

virginia alberti to Lorna Costantini, Kim Caise: hi!

Daniel: through Elluminate

mrsdurff: @Maureen just teacher blogging enough

monika: @mcdurff yeah - i did - love it - thanks

Brian NYC: you must open it to the public though

jai.venaik: @ sudhanshi visit oovoo.com and see feautures

jai.venaik: looks good

Moderator (Lorna Costantini) to virginia alberti: GM Virginia

sudhanshi.ci: k fy9

McTeach: that's helpful for classroom management also!

jai.venaik: ok

virginia alberti: ciao

clinds: @Daniel - So you could use Learn Central if 2 classes are trying to collaborate, right?

mrsdurff: @Maureen I do this with 1st grades - MD<-->China

vanhookc: and skype...can only handle a number of simultaneous logins...looking for ten at one time!

mrsdurff: aw coffee got cold - need more......

Maureen: @mrsdurff- I know it's doable, just haven't done it and working out the hows

Moderator (Lorna Costantini): Learn central is set up for educators collaborate

Sheri Edwards: http://www.oovoo.com/

Daniel: @clinds: I know nothing about Learn Central... I just downloaded the client for Elluminate and sent e-mail invites to the other 2 parties

jai.venaik: @ sheri wonderful site

Kelly B. Nelson/NC to Lorna Costantini, Kim Caise: @mrsduff- I've heard good things about ivisit too... never used it though

Daniel: Adobe Connect is also very good

Moderator (Lorna Costantini): Kim wll talk about Learn Central in a few min

sudhanshi.ci: itzz gud jay

Daniel: Another good tool is the free website called wiziq

jackiegerstein: LOL

Daniel: allows multiple particpants to control the powerpoints

Shelly Terrell: lol

McTeach: Ahhh...he's a cutie!

jackiegerstein: He looks like he is concentrating

Paula Naugle: He looks like a serious student.

Using Web Conferencing in the Classroom 1: Another resources might be Edmodo.

Dave Sapp: Shelly is great she spoke to my buildings staff -- interesting and informative

MB: Yes, Shelly - You really should! Sign Shelly up Peggy, Lorna and Kim.

Jon H.: thanks

jgates513: how many can use ustream at school?

Kathy S: No ustream for us

Shelly Terrell: I can use Ustream! I'm lucky there's no filtering at my school

DeirdreB: Any resources for teaching techniques for videocasting

mrsdurff: http://webcastacademy.net/

Lucian Cornel Duma , Romania: New . Do you know about Meebo Room ?

Sheri Edwards: Yes, so far we can use ustream

Maureen: I have tried ustream, it works, but you have to unblock the port on the server for chat

Shelly Terrell: I just have to figure out how to manage 2 huge classes on both ends & just having an LCD projector

DeirdreB: Question: resources for how to teach?

mrsdurff: I'm trying to enjoy my coffee but this person keeps bringing up my name

Kathy S: what did you mention works with out download?

Moderator (Lorna Costantini): gret multi tasking SHelly

Maureen: Tokbox has video and you can have 20

Moderator (Kim Caise): http://gl.am/kbNVH

jackiegerstein: I just had someone recommend Shoutbox as a text chat - does anyone know it.

Shelly Terrell: Thanks @lorna I'm ok at that but I'm sweating it

mrsdurff: don't forget Qik

Dave Sapp: We can use ustream at our school in but many others can't-just had a teacher told they have to talk to principal to have a site open

Dave Sapp: I hate this filtering issue

Shelly Terrell: @maureen does the Tokbok use a lot of bandwidth

Moderator (Lorna Costantini): bandwidth can be a big issue in a large school board

Moderator (Lorna Costantini): especially at lunch time

Annette: What exactly is UStream?

Lucian Cornel Duma , Romania: http://www.meebo.com/room/elearningtehnologytoolsandapplicationsweb20gatewaythroughknowledge/

Moderator (Lorna Costantini): when the kids hit the library

Maureen: Haven't tried it at school - works fine at home. It's one I will be testing next week before deciding what to use for project

Jane R: At our school we have to get our technology person contact the district to unlock site

mrsdurff: many teachers don't realise they could take their own server - cellphones too

jgates513: @Dave -I feel your pain. And we're ALL following the same laws! ARGH!

Moderator (Lorna Costantini): http://ustream.tv - free streaming with ads

Shelly Terrell: I'm in Germany so using the cell phone is really expensive


mrsdurff: @Shelly Skype?

Shelly Terrell: @Deirdre I like your question

monika: is it easy to set up cell phones?

Maureen: @shelly- the project I am helping put together is with a class in Berlin.

Moderator (Lorna Costantini): http://www.livestream.com/ another streaming service

jackiegerstein: Little league fields have ads too

McTeach: perhaps classroom management?

jackiegerstein: They are all over the place

John Thompson: Best to use landline phones, not cellphones, for VC.

mrsdurff: justin.tv

DeirdreB: Teaching during the conference what are best practices?

clinds: Has anyone heard of or tried BigBlueButton for conferencing? I heard about it on an edtech talk podcast and they were really excited about it. I think it's pretty powerful.

vanhookc: Can you upload a video on this elluminate whiteboard and have your voice narrate

McTeach: I have a huge class (36 students)...concerned about how to keep it under control during a web conference

jgates513: BrightTalk

mrsdurff: JL liked it a while back

Shelly Terrell: @mrsduff Hello! Yes I'm going to try Skype 1st time for my school with 2 large groups. 40 hs & 30 ms at the other end

Moderator (Lorna Costantini): yes to video

Jon H.: lol

aimeeb: lol great suggestion!

mrsdurff: @Shelly Skype works well with either PCs or MACs

McTeach: I like that!

Jon H.: those make for the best video :)

Shelly Terrell: Thank you! That sounds like a great strategy

clinds: We just skyped with a class for the first time and the students were asking eachother questions that they had come up with. It was great but the biggest problem was the kids were so excited they kept all yelling out answers and it was really hard to hear!

Sheri Edwards: for colleges and universities: http://bigbluebutton.org/

Maureen: @shelly I will be trying it with 2 huge grps as well- 60-75 on each end.

Suzie Martin: Contracts for participation might help temper behavior.

Shelly Terrell: What kind of activities can students do in the background while others asking questions?

Lucian Cornel Duma , Romania: http://skypeinschools.pbworks.com/

Shelly Terrell: What specific activities do you recommend?

Daniel: how about doing it in a lab and have thm do a back channel chat like we're doing now

mrsdurff: it's best is everyone has the same version of Skype

Daniel: have them each prepare a question and have it asked orally and then record the answer in a forum

Moderator (Lorna Costantini): SKype is pretty awesome

Maureen: Kim, can you talk about how to record webconferences?

mrsdurff: and there is a whiteboard too

Bodie: and file sharing

DeirdreB: I've been in webconferences where prof had back turned to camera talking to live class and ignoring me

Moderator (Lorna Costantini): different apps can record

Moderator (Lorna Costantini): soem can't

jgates513: GREAT! Looking forward to the url for the video

clinds: Wow! I can't wait to watch the video!

McTeach: Yes, thanks Shambles!!

Shamblesguru: I'm amazed at the improvements in Skype since the last upgrade .... the Skype software auto prevents audio feedback so no need for headset. I did a workshop last month in Singapore ... had an educator (Tim) join us from USA using Skype and I just left my laptop at the front of the room .... and I could talk normally from anywhere in the room. (laptop plugged into external speakers). So impressed I Flipped a few minutes to show it happening ... see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f09veWVpB0w also used Etherpad ...... Skype and Etherpad a great combination. New(ish) part of Skype is now sharing of your desktop.

mrsdurff: applauses to shambles

Paula Naugle: My class of 27 students was interviewed by two 5th grade classes from New York. They had 60 students. I put 3of my students in front of the camera at one time to support each other. They were being interviewed about their Hurricane Katrina experiences. Skype session lasted over an hour. It was incredible.

Artie: Thanks Shambles

mrsdurff: I use a webconference to start

Lucian Cornel Duma , Romania: I thisnk that Ning is the best social network across the globe and also I like very much to use Netvibes free http://teacherluciandumaweb20.blogspot.com/

mrsdurff: then use social networking in Edmodo

Lucian Cornel Duma , Romania: Ning and Netvibes

mrsdurff: then move onto blogs

vanhookc: Just curious, when you take the mic how do you quickly adjust the speaker not to get feedback..hmmm

Brian NYC: @Annette are you lokijg at a particular program

Moderator (Lorna Costantini): the slider besdie the mic

Brian NYC: @ Annette Compass, Apex, VHS

monika: that chance to get an elluminate room for free - was there a link?
