15:25 - Jan Wells

15:26 - SueH

15:38 - wfryer
There are gaming parties people have, where they get together and use a local LAN to share / work / play together

15:56 - Kim Flack
such a good point! that divide exists within schools -

16:19 - durff
Is there a conference flyer we can print off and put in faculty mailboxes at our individual schools?

16:23 - jackiegerstein
The live events is a great development

16:29 - Peggy George

21:24 - tgilley
thank you

21:25 - Sheri Edwards
Thanks Peggy -- important to share that "first time" stuff with staff too with the flyer

21:29 - melindamiller
this has always been the most useful site for me during this event

21:38 - Peggy George (K12 Online Conference Schedule of Presentations and Events)

21:47 - Peggy George
I use the schedule as my start page :-)

21:48 - Kim Caise has those links and other important links in our link

22:01 - melindamiller

22:08 - Susan van Gelder
Wes' Darth Vader problems again

22:13 - Jeanette
Static in audio

22:14 - Kathryn Frech
I'm losing sound

22:15 - Maureen
It is such an amazing conference- shows others the way to connect with teachers. Real teachers, not just "talking heads"

22:27 - Rob Miller

22:27 - Kim Caise
wes, your audio isn't clear right now

22:29 - Puneet
i m getting problem to hear the voice

22:29 - McTeach
Whoa....funky sound

22:29 - Jeanette

22:30 - cynthia szirmai
sound is so garbled

22:31 - Maureen
audio degenerating

22:32 - virginia alberti
audio with echooooooo

22:40 - virginia alberti
bad audio

22:42 - tgilley
audio is fading-not better

22:42 - melindamiller
as the presentations are "loaded" they will be linkable on the schedule

22:42 - Kim Caise
not yet

22:42 - Kathryn Frech

22:44 - Peggy George
it helps me to create a Pageflake to add all of the feeds related to K12Online conference in one place :-)

22:45 - Maureen
still bad

22:46 - Peter Zingg
scary movie audio!

22:48 - Kim T.
please tell me it is the audio and not my lack of coffee!

22:49 - SueH
no -- can't make you out

22:50 - Rob Miller
can't understand

22:53 - Eileen K

23:01 - durff
Jose jump in

23:01 - wfryer
Jose can you talk about the ning presenter pages?

23:01 - Peggy George
try again Wes

23:06 - durff

23:08 - Jeanette

23:09 - wfryer
great thanks Susan

23:10 - virginia alberti

23:12 - JoseRodriguez

23:15 - wfryer
yes, the "echo!"

23:18 - Peggy George
clever transition Susan!!!

23:39 - Kathryn Frech
heh - the audio was echoing. But this is good too.

23:47 - wfryer
Yes, we could crowdsource that question of what sessions to spotlight in the echo sessions

23:48 - Delbusch
much better audio

23:54 - Peggy George
Great idea Susan--we should start a google form to gather feedback about which sessions people would like to discuss in the Echo sessions

23:57 - congerjan
is there a link to the ning?

24:04 - wfryer

24:06 - Kim Caise has those links

24:14 - jackiegerstein
Google feedback form is a great idea

24:15 - Peggy George

24:18 - Kim Caise
and many other helpful links

24:22 - melindamiller
is there a "how to" section this year? I love the presentations but always want to know how the presenters created them...(software? tools? etc.)

24:23 - congerjan

24:35 - wfryer
We are trying to keep the links to the blog, ning, and wiki on all our pages at the top of each page

24:36 - Kim T.
melinda, good point

24:50 - durff
blog, wiki, ning, twitter - get them all and be well informed

24:55 - Peggy George
@melindamiller-that would be a good thing for us to ask the presenters during the Echo sessions!

24:55 - Kim Caise
we always ask those questions during the LAN events

25:00 - Puneet

25:02 - wfryer
Your profile page in the Ning this year is your presenter / participant page

25:14 - Dianne Aldridge
This is my first visit to Elluminate Live! I am so impressed with this forum for collaboration; I must find a way to use it for PD.

25:15 - melindamiller
Yes, lets ask during the echo sessions that is a good way to find out

25:23 - wfryer
Glad you are here, Dianne!

25:34 - jackiegerstein
Are the presenters putting their resources on their NING pages this year?

25:43 -
great site

25:45 - Peggy George
We learned a lot from Alec Couros during his LAN party in Sept. about how he created his video

25:56 - wfryer
Ok I'll see if my mic can work again...

25:57 - durff
twitter Jose

26:01 - Peggy George
great Wes

26:06 - durff

26:08 - wfryer
the opportunity to backchannel chat is super during the LAN parties

26:11 - Paula Naugle
Welcome, Dianne. This Saturday sessions are always great. I have learned so much this year by attending them.

26:19 - durff

26:19 - Peggy George

27:13 - Peggy George
I LOVE that image!!!

27:14 - Peter Zingg
Looking at the wiki, could you explain the "fireside chat" group and if there are other ning groups we should be interested in?

27:30 - Rachel Murphy
In the past you had a 24 hour "as night falls". Are you doing something similar this year? If you are, do you still need moderators? One year I helped with that.

27:32 - Dianne Aldridge
Thanks Paula and Wes. I read your Twitter posts so often and have used many of your recommended resources. You're like rock stars to me!

27:35 - Paula Naugle
Great image. Might have to steal, I mean borrow it.

27:57 - durff

28:05 - Sheri Edwards
RT: Dianne Aldridge: Thanks Paula and Wes. I read your Twitter posts so often and have used many of your recommended resources. You're like rock stars to me!

29:11 - Maureen
I'm embedding the brochure in faculty page on school website, and killing trees putting it in mailboxes. Will also try to have a couple of afternoon sessions to watch presentations and talk together

29:13 - Peggy George
it was powerful to watch a presentation together last year in our LAN party!! But the bonus was getting to skype with Jen Wagner and Kim Cofino to talk personally with them!

29:15 - Puneet
thanks paula

29:27 - Dianne Aldridge
Kim, link for that fan page, please.

29:41 - Kim Caise

31:56 - durff
in the past there has been a help desk, is there still one this year?

31:57 - melindamiller

32:02 - matt montagne
audio good

32:03 - Kim Caise
sounds great

32:05 - JoseRodriguez
sounds ok

32:06 - Jeanette

32:06 - Peggy George

32:16 - Kathryn Frech

32:25 - Peggy George
this might be a good tiime to use the default layout so you can see more of the screen without scrolling

32:48 - Peggy George
those strands are so helpful!!

33:10 - Puneet
great idea

33:11 - Maureen
Just ordered an itouch yesterday- looking forward to Kern's presentation

33:33 - durff
how many people do you think will visit the conference this year? will it be more people because of the Spanish language?

33:36 - Kim Caise try that one

33:45 - Peggy George
We have several presenters in the room today!! Tell us the title of your presentation :-) Bonus for participants!!

33:55 - wfryer
@durff: hard to say - we'll have a better idea on actual participants thanks to the Ning

34:17 - durff

34:23 - Peggy George
I'll add the Facebook fan page to the links today

34:35 - Peggy George

35:17 - JoseRodriguez

38:59 - Paula Naugle
@Jan Wells Looks like a great lineup of sessions. We'll have to present next year on our collaborations,

39:18 - Jan Wells
Absolutely, Paula

39:27 - melindamiller
admin can temporarily "unblock" if they know what you are doing

39:27 - Peggy George
thanks for the flyer link, Durff! I'll add it to the link after the show

39:31 - Jeanette
Do you have the option to ask your school to unblock?

39:35 - Kathryn Frech
heh - couldn't possibly take time from work to participate even if wasn't blocked

39:46 - melindamiller
admin = principals in my case

39:50 - durff
@peggy Maureen's link

39:54 - jackiegerstein
An itunes channel?

39:55 - Peggy George
the great thing is that you can view any time, any place

40:02 - Kathryn Frech

40:05 - Peggy George
you don't have to tune in at a specific time!

40:08 - Puneet

40:11 - Peggy George

40:18 - Susan van Gelder
The nice thing is that even if you don't have time during the "official" conference weeks - all is available afterwards

40:28 - Puneet

40:34 - Kim T.
while i really like the archives, this year i am looking forward to participating in the live events

40:36 - Kim Caise
you can also download the presentations to your ipod or mp3 player to view the presentations

40:38 - Peggy George
it will take weeks to get through 50+ presentations :-)

40:43 - durff
an online Educon, if you will

40:49 - Puneet
well i didnt knew that kim

40:51 - Peggy George
I download all of them to my iPod :-)

40:58 - Maureen
This is truly the conference that doesn't end... I still refer back to one of Kathy Cassidy's from a couple years back

41:00 - Puneet

41:10 - Paula Naugle
We will all be busy over the next several weeks.

41:13 - durff
sync with your oPod

41:15 - durff

41:20 - Peggy George
@Maureen--me too!!! I frequently go back to the early presentations to share with teachers!

41:23 - Kim Caise
she was one of the guests we had on one of the LAN parties

41:27 - Puneet
thanks durff

41:32 - Kim T.
watch/listen to them while on the treadmill...

42:37 - Maureen

42:39 - Puneet
thanks kimmm

42:46 -
much better

42:55 - Kim Caise
you can adjust the sound using the slider across from the speaker icon

42:58 - Peggy George
this is such a powerful way to provide professional development for districts!!

43:06 - wfryer
Maybe we should have a wiki for PD ideas and sharing, for different districts to share how they are using k12online for local PD?

43:07 - Puneet

43:20 - jackiegerstein
Nice idea!

43:23 - cathywolinsky
Idea--teachers earning technology through PD.

43:23 - Paula Naugle
@Kim T. That's what I did in January too after learning aobut the archived sessions.

43:28 - wfryer
Yes, that blogging buddies preso is GREAT

43:32 - melindamiller
put catnip meaning in here please

43:33 - Peggy George
great idea Wes!! or we could put it in a forum on the Ning :-)

43:33 - durff
@wes - what about a page on the wiki already there?

43:37 - Kim Caise
i love the catnip and 'mice' references for the teachers in your school district

43:38 - Susan van Gelder
Yeah - Kathy - LAN party featured her

43:38 - Maureen
@wes- great idea

43:45 - Paula Naugle
@Kim T Did you say Catnip?

43:51 - Kim T.
yes catnip

43:59 - Kim Caise
yes, a play on words for their school district

44:05 - Kim T.
classroom application of technology, new incentive program

44:10 - Puneet
right catnip

44:14 - Laurie Hnatiuk
love the acronym

44:15 - Peggy George
with so many financial issues for districts this is an incredible way to provide some of the best PD for teachers for FREE!

44:16 - Kim T.
Goes along with our MICE, CATS and Kitty

44:32 - Dianne Aldridge

Maybe we can make a sub-section of our main wiki just for PD

45:21 - Peggy George

45:26 - Paula Naugle
@Kim T Love those acronyms. Very creative people.

45:28 - Kathryn Frech

48:54 - Sheri Edwards

We are supposed to put "essential questions" on our curriculum maps... but it's optional. Wish it was mandatory. It makes the learning connection more viable- not just waay cool tools

53:50 - Puneet

54:33 - Puneet

54:36 - Peggy George

54:44 - Kathryn Frech

55:09 - durff
I vote for October
