11:05 to: Peggy George
seems funny to hear Boston is enjoying warm weather and Portland is freezing!

11:16 to: Peggy George
thanks for that link Jackie!

11:16 to: Wade
i know it- very bizarre

11:20 to: jackiegerstein

I am so THRILLED games are becoming more common in the classroom

11:59 to: Maureen(bcdtech)
It's snowinn in the hilltowns of western MA, Peggy.

12:13 to: Peggy George
Brrrr Maureen! I'm glad I'm in AZ!!

I'm doing Quest Atlantis (virtual environment that has students complete quests to learn science, ethics and moving toward other subject areas) training right now and really seeling how gaming could e

12:54 to: clinds
xcite students.

12:57 to: joel
We have about 3 inches on the ground here in Marquette.

12:57 to: Peggy George
these games are so supportive of the STEM initiative!!

13:14 to: jackiegerstein
I used to play board games in all classrooms - K through graduate school and almost all students liked them. Technology has increased the ability to include games

13:28 to: Kim Caise
quest atlantis is fantastic and bron hosts monthly teacher meetings on skype

13:36 to: Maureen(bcdtech)
I wonder about the balance between online/games and hands on learning in scienc

13:37 to: Peggy George
Jackie's students are great Quest Atlantis users!

14:00 to: jackiegerstein
I am taking my pre-service teachers into QA tonight to meet with Bron and get a tour - am excited

14:07 to: Peggy George
Tammy has some awesome experience using Elluminate with her students with science/math games

14:17 to: Peggy George
how exciting Jackie!!

14:18 to: Paula Naugle
Good morning Angela and Mary Beth.

14:19 to: Kim Caise
bron does awesome work with quest atlantis

14:42 to: MB
Hey Paula...thanks for tweeting. I retweeted.

14:53 to: Peggy George
I'm so happy I know how to pronounce Caduceus now!

Great, hopefully more will join us.

15:19 to: Kim Caise
yes, i mispronounced it

15:22 to: Paula Naugle
Hi Maureen, how are you?

15:25 to: MB
Kids are going to love this! I know I am!

15:30 to: Lorna Costantini
what an awesome idea

15:31 to: Peggy George
interesting idea!

15:44 to: jackiegerstein
Where is this url?

15:47 to: Peggy George

15:48 to: Kim Caise

16:03 to: Maureen(bcdtech)
Hey Paula- fine here- long week- parent teacher conferences. Snowing pretty good- expect 3-5.

16:16 to: Peggy George
We'll be giving you lots of links today but they will all be in the gl.am links: http://gl.am/zZyD2

16:27 to: jackiegerstein
I always forget the hastag for classroom 2.0 live

16:31 to: Peggy George
I learned that from your last session :-)

16:35 to: Wade
found on ambulances and hospitals

16:55 to: Sheri Edwards
orter http://eracism.flatclassroomproject.org/ Thanks so much Jackie!

17:11 to: jackiegerstein
Sheri - am loving this!

17:12 to: Kim Caise
hi sheri!

17:15 to: Peggy George

17:15 to: Paula Naugle
For what age group? I teach 4th graders.

17:30 to: Peggy George
grades 4-8 especially

17:34 to: Peggy George
but easily modified

17:35 to: MB
Very interesting, Jackie. Can you do one of these Sat. sessions so we can learn about it?

17:35 to: Sheri Edwards
Hi Kim -- main goto person for the eracism project :)

17:43 to: paula fargo
great I teach 6-7

18:38 to: Brien
I find it hard to see how a game can interest students from such a wide age range.

18:42 to: Peggy George
there were only 9 slides

18:48 to: jackiegerstein
MB - for QA?

18:51 to: MB
Level 2?

18:51 to: joel
not sure where pelkie is at

19:33 to: Peggy George

19:38 to: MB
@jackie Yes, and anything else!

20:08 to: Peggy George
so hard to pronounce all of those names but I'll bet the kids love them!! just like learning all of the dinosaur names :-)

20:21 to: Kim Caise
be sure to move the webcam video window to see the slides

20:56 to: MB
I love this. Will I be able to play later?

20:59 to: joel
My son is going to Michingan tech. I know where it is now

21:03 to: Kim Caise

21:16 to: Peggy George
some of the links we'll be sharing will start playing immediately--just so you know if you click on them

21:27 to: MB
Thanks, Peggy!

22:07 to: Alex Chisholm
The first step in the process of curing the disease is to IDENTIFY THE MICROBE THAT'S CAUSING THE PLAGUE.

22:26 to: MB
Plagues! Fun!

22:28 to: Peggy George
just like on CSI :-)

22:29 to: paula fargo
this is great for bio

22:42 to: Peggy George

22:48 to: sarah McPherson

23:20 to: Brien

23:30 to: MB
@brianbrian Can't wait to play!

24:17 to: Peggy George
I'll post that again

24:27 to: Peggy George

24:39 to: Peggy George
do you want it in the web tour?

24:44 to: Dianne Aldridge
I wonder what the timeframe is to play at each level of the game. I teach 4-6 tech but only have 5 hours total time with them on each rotation.

25:01 to: Wade
times range from 25-55 minutes per puzzle

25:15 to: jackiegerstein
Dianne - when I introduced QA (and Secret Builders) last year, the kids played them at home too

25:25 to: Wade
our third puzzle is the most fun, but takes a while

25:45 to: sarah McPherson
does this work as group collaboration?

25:55 to: Wade

26:13 to: jackiegerstein
@sarah - good question as that is the power of MUVES such as wow

26:13 to: Peggy George
love that the kids can either collaborate or compete with these games!

26:20 to: Dianne Aldridge
Wade, about how long on the third one?

26:21 to: Peggy George
or they can even play individually

26:37 to: Wade
i've done the third one in 45 minutes, but that was after prior exposure

26:58 to: Wade
we've had one 5th grade student finish the puzzle in 35 minutes-- which may say more about me :)

27:07 to: Peggy George
http://www.generationcures.org/education (Site with information for ways educators can participate in Caduceus and Generation Cures)

27:10 to: jackiegerstein
cool - educators site will be great

27:47 to: Dotty Myers(San Jose Ca.)
can you play the game in offline mode. My school does not allow programs that you strem live.

27:57 to: Peggy George
great question Dotty

28:14 to: Alex Chisholm
Unfortunately, Dotty, there is no offline version right now. We can look at that in coming months.

28:23 to: Kim Caise
you may have to use one computer to play the game and guide the students as a class

28:28 to: Peggy George
such a powerful way to learn about the scientific process!

28:41 to: paula fargo
can this be played on an ipod touch?

29:09 to: Sally Boone
Maybe use the interactive whiteboard.

29:13 to: paula fargo
I am field testing ipod touches in my school

29:16 to: Alex Chisholm

29:18 to: sarah McPherson
if you don't finish a game level in a given periood can you save where you are and take it up where you left off in the next class session.

29:31 to: Peggy George
we'll ask the question about the ipod touches soon

29:44 to: Alex Chisholm

29:56 to: Dianne Aldridge
Thanks Sarah! That's very helpful to know....

29:58 to: MB
@paula Was the ipod touch sponsored?

30:02 to: Alex Chisholm
BEES will soon be available on iPod Touch

30:04 to: Peggy George
doctors without borders--good suggestion

30:09 to: jackiegerstein
Good question about ipod as I believe the future of ed in the classroom is mobile tech

30:15 to: sarah McPherson
sorry that was supposed to be a question

30:18 to: MB
How about the Android?

30:19 to: Peggy George

30:34 to: MB
Can't hear you Alex

30:35 to: sarah McPherson
lost audio

30:38 to: paula fargo
the county is field testing it in our school with 6th graders

30:39 to: Dotty Myers(San Jose Ca.)
wow my scholl is so behind and I am in Silicon Valley

30:39 to: Rob Miller
no audio

30:40 to: Peggy George
the kids will love playing the Bees game on the iPod Touch!!

30:42 to: Wade
lost audio

30:43 to: Wade

30:51 to: jackiegerstein

31:04 to: Sheri Edwards
Me too -- love sets :)

31:08 to: Kim Caise
i haven't heard of Sets

31:11 to: jackiegerstein

31:11 to: Kim Caise
what is Sets

31:28 to: Brien
SETS is a great game. It helps to see the connection.

31:57 to: MB
I must be blue

32:08 to: jackiegerstein
I used to play the daily game to get my brain working in the morning - now I will do so again ; ) http://www.setgame.com/set/puzzle_frame.htm

32:13 to: Peggy George
which page would you like in web tour?

32:21 to: Brien
SETS is a card game finding relationships between shape, number and pattern.

32:49 to: clinds
Sorry if I missed this but will the Bees game be available as an app through the iTunes Store?

33:01 to: Kim Caise
yes it will be soon @clinds

33:05 to: Peggy George
The Bee Game: https://generationcures.org/puzzle3

33:07 to: Wade
yes, fairly soon i believe

33:10 to: jackiegerstein
Brien - the link I put in is the electronic version of the card game

33:31 to: Sheri Edwards
Thanks, Jackie

33:42 to: paula fargo
do you know what the cost is for that app?

33:44 to: Brien

33:50 to: clinds
We're piloting iTouches in the classroom too and having a hard time finding a lot of quality apps to use with students

34:43 to: Peggy George
bee game doesn't seem to be in the app store yet--just checked on my iPhone

35:06 to: Alex Chisholm
Thanks, Peggy. I'll confirm with FableVision that it's not there so they can check.

35:29 to: MB
@alex Android app?

35:33 to: Peggy George
I would be so excited to find the cure!!

35:53 to: paula fargo
what grade level do you teach clinds?

36:14 to: Peggy George
@clinds-there are quite a few great lists of iTouch apps for education. I could share some with you.

36:32 to: sarah McPherson
that would be great peggy

36:43 to: Dianne Aldridge
Yes, please, Peggy.

36:47 to: sarah McPherson
i would like that list too

36:53 to: paula fargo
me too

37:02 to: Sheri Edwards
Me too -- iphone app lists

37:03 to: Peggy George
I'll post just a couple here...

37:06 to: Peggy George

37:18 to: Peggy George

37:39 to: paula fargo
I have just started this field test, so I have only begun to look for apps so the list would be fantastic

37:54 to: Sheri Edwards
thanks, Peggy

38:09 to: Peggy George

38:26 to: Peggy George

38:41 to: Delbusch
I agree that they will do it at home. I showed my students EDheads surgery and they think it is the best.

38:45 to: Peggy George

39:06 to: Peggy George

40:01 to: Peggy George
so reassuring to be able to problem solve together with someone else :-)

40:07 to: Sally Boone
Will you add all this links for us...in the session link?

40:29 to: sarah McPherson
thank you I had no idea there were so many apps available

40:30 to: Peggy George
sure Sally-I'll do that after the show

40:43 to: jackiegerstein
Really like collaborative work - the kids like it too

40:47 to: Sally Boone

40:50 to: Peggy George
those lesson plans are so helpful for teachers!

40:55 to: MB
@sarah Be sure to keep us updated.

41:04 to: clinds
@ Peggy George - Wow! Thank you so much! I've been doing some researching but haven't found a lot of these resources and they look awesome! We're piloting iTouches with 2nd grade and using voice mem

41:04 to: clinds
os for fluency practic and making audiobooks to load on devices. I bet I'll find more applications with all these resources to look at. Thanks again!

41:30 to: Sheri Edwards

41:32 to: MB

41:35 to: Peggy George
slow loading but it's coming

41:45 to: Brien
This collaborative nature is a powerful aspect. To celebrate the success of others as they help you to reach a common goal is seldom seen in a classroom.

41:53 to: Maureen(bcdtech)
Are you going to talk a bit about the fund-raising piece? I might be able to get our service learning club interested.

41:57 to: Peggy George
so true Brien!!!

42:03 to: Alex Chisholm
Indeed! We find it really gets the kids motivated. Competition and collaboration.

42:12 to: Peggy George
that's really loading slow for me--anyone else seeing it?

42:12 to: Rob Miller
FYI- we are starting an iPod Touch project with 5th graders this February

42:25 to: sarah McPherson
spoke to soon - I can't hear or see the white board

42:27 to: sarah McPherson

42:30 to: sarah McPherson
we can hear

42:31 to: Kim Caise
or access the link via the web tour

42:57 to: joel
What was the link to those lessons?

42:58 to: Dana Zora
We have 1-1 iPod in 6th gr this yr

43:15 to: sarah McPherson
no can't see anything in the whitboard space

43:34 to: Alex Chisholm
There it is. Kind off.

43:45 to: Peggy George
yes coming up now

43:48 to: MB
Yes, that is probably why

43:56 to: Peggy George

43:59 to: Amber Prince
can't see much

44:03 to: Kim Caise
there are sliders on the bottom and right side of the window to view more of the documents

44:05 to: joel

44:08 to: Amber Prince
there it is!

44:09 to: MB
here it ccomes

44:13 to: Kim Caise
it is showing now

44:21 to: Kim Caise

44:27 to: jackiegerstein
How is this funded?

44:46 to: Alex Chisholm
Children's Hospital Boston funded and produced it.

44:58 to: jackiegerstein
Great - plans for additional games?

45:01 to: Peggy George
you may need to scroll across to see it all

45:12 to: Kim Caise
no problem, we can see i tnow

45:15 to: MB
Do you have medical consultants as part of the team?

45:50 to: Wade
@MB yes, we have the resources at Children's Hospital Boston at our disposal

46:11 to: jackiegerstein
Do you have a Twitter account so we can follow you?

46:25 to: Wade

46:25 to: MB
Yes, twitter!

46:35 to: Wade
please follow us there and on facebook

46:51 to: Wade
we update regularly- www.facebook.com/generationcures

47:17 to: Amber Prince
is there any way to access these games without iTouch?

47:23 to: clinds
Any chance you would do a live webinar training for teachers to walk us through actually using the games with students. That would be so helpful!

47:34 to: Peggy George

47:37 to: MB
Yes, I would love that

48:28 to: Peggy George
they have done a couple of sessions on LearnCentral already and the links to the recordings are in our gl.am links

48:29 to: Lorraine L
Where are updates on the project posted?

48:44 to: Peggy George

48:54 to: MB
How about Canada?

49:14 to: Wade
yes, canada too

49:33 to: Lorna Costantini
How can other organizations use this to fund raise?

50:06 to: Peggy George
the vision for these games is incredible!! science, math, problemsolving, scientific inquiry and community service!!

50:20 to: Peggy George
those trading cards sound fantastic!! very appealing to the kids

51:05 to: Peggy George
wouldn't the kids love to be part of the "research team" for Boston Children's Hospital??!! :-)

51:23 to: MB
@Peggy I know I would!

52:00 to: Paula Naugle
Peggy, yes I'm sure they would.

52:38 to: Maureen(bcdtech)
Many of my parents at school are doctors- it would be an easy sell to get them on board as sponsers... I think.

53:05 to: Peggy George
and almost everyone has experienced some of these serious diseases in their families and friends

53:08 to: Kim Caise
can you also mention the rubber bracelets/bands?

53:17 to: Alex Chisholm
Yes, the wristbands --

53:58 to: Peggy George
http://www.amd.com/us/press-releases/Pages/amd-and-learning-games-2009oct01.aspx (Press Release about Video Contest-The “A-HA Moment” category required contestants to create a video explaining how pl

53:58 to: Peggy George
aying video games reinforced something they had first learned elsewhere; while the “My Dream Assignment” category asked them to describe a game that could be “required playing” for a class at school)

54:00 to: Alex Chisholm
When kids register for the games, we'll send them a wristband to show their involvment in the program.

54:10 to: Peggy George
love that title!! Peace not Pain!!

54:32 to: Alex Chisholm
and, then, as they advance through the levels of the game, if they've gotten sponsors, they'll get another wristband for every level of the game they complete

54:33 to: Peggy George
can't wait to see the Battle of the Bands :-)

54:55 to: Peggy George
I saw that photo of one student with many bands on their wrist!! fun!!

54:59 to: MB
Do you see kids walking around with the wristbands on?

56:15 to: jackiegerstein
The wristbands are cool

56:25 to: Sheri Edwards
Oh boy -- that's my area ! :)

56:30 to: Peggy George
this is one of their earlier sessions on LearnCentral-you can learn a lot by viewing it: http://www.learncentral.org/node/36234 (Learning Game Series: Drawing Lesson Plans from Gaming, Case Study: Ca

56:59 to: Peggy George
music is such a universal language!! love that it's included!

57:10 to: Wade
thank you @kim @lorna @peggy

57:15 to: Lorna Costantini
no thank you for such a grt8 project!

57:28 to: Peggy George
there is sooooo much potential with this project!!

57:33 to: paula fargo
Dana Zora-can we share info on our tirals with ipod Touches?

57:33 to: Delbusch
I agree the wristbands would be great.

57:57 to: joel
How would we contact you?

Those of you interested in mobile for learning should read Eric Klopfer's book on augmented reality learning.

@Alex-Do we need permissions slips or release forms from parents for students to have accounts? This is needed for Quest Atlantis and something that might make it hard to get all students involved.

You have thought of everything! WOW!!

1:05:57 to: Peggy George
they really have Sally!!!

1:06:17 to: clinds
Great! Sounds like you have a great process for setting up students. Can't set up a class in Quest Atlantis without a permission slip so this makes using this so much easier!!

1:06:21 to: Sheri Edwards
Thank you for thinking this all through for schools and teachers! :)

1:06:45 to: Peggy George
the recording for today will be posted here very soon: http://live.classroom20.com/archive-and-resources.html

1:07:10 to: joel
Can we trial test this game ourselves

1:07:15 to: jackiegerstein
There needs to be a balance between protecting kids and giving them access

1:07:29 to: Peggy George
excellent information Alex and Wade!! thank you so much!!

1:07:36 to: MB
is there a cost?

1:07:44 to: Wade

1:07:50 to: MB
can't wait

1:07:54 to: Peggy George
amazing that this is all free!!! we are so lucky!!

1:08:22 to: jackiegerstein
Now I wish I was still working with my GATE elementary students - they would love this

1:08:28 to: joel
could you go over that wrist band program again

1:08:29 to: Sally Boone
And they don't have to get sponsors for fundraising??

1:08:40 to: Peggy George
wouldn't they, Jackie??!! they would be a perfect group to participate in this!

1:09:02 to: jackiegerstein
Yes Peggy - and you know this from first hand experience with them ; )

1:09:31 to: Peggy George
I sure do!!!

1:09:38 to: Sally Boone
yes students

1:09:43 to: joel
Money is generated by the students getting wrist bands?

1:09:53 to: joel
through sponsors

1:09:58 to: jackiegerstein
There is going to be a push for afterschool STEM programs - this has a lot of potential for these programs

1:10:07 to: Peggy George
great idea Jackie!!

1:10:52 to: jackiegerstein
What again is a sponsor?

1:10:58 to: joel
Is this ongoing or are there specific time tables

1:11:07 to: Wade

1:11:30 to: Tammy Moore
Sponsors pay per level simila to how sponsors in walk-a-thons pay per mile walked?

1:11:33 to: Peggy George
this sponsor plan takes the games to a whole different level!

1:11:40 to: Wade
the content is always available

1:11:51 to: Wade
just like a walk-a-thon

1:11:55 to: Sally Boone
Clear now...thanks!

1:11:55 to: Peggy George
game-a-thon :-)

1:11:56 to: Tammy Moore
Do the kids collect sponsors primarily at the begining or throughout the game play?

1:12:13 to: Dotty Myers(San Jose Ca.)
did you send the link for the survey

1:12:33 to: Peggy George

1:12:36 to: jackiegerstein
Where does the money go?

1:12:51 to: Peggy George
the survey should also pop up in your browser when you log out of the session

1:12:52 to: Kim Caise
the survey will automatically open when you exit the session as well

1:13:07 to: Peggy George
be sure to fill in the part for a certificate if you want one

1:13:09 to: Wade
the money goes to support medical research at Children's Hospital Boston

1:13:13 to: Sheri Edwards
Can the game be played more than once?

1:13:18 to: Wade
leukemia/ lymphoma

1:13:27 to: Wade
games can be played as often as possible

1:13:40 to: jackiegerstein
So it is a tax deducation?

1:13:44 to: Peggy George
you'll really enjoy watching some of the videos on their site that the students have created! very powerful!

1:13:51 to: Sheri Edwards
:) Thanks

1:14:09 to: Sally Boone
