01:35 - @gcouros - George Couros

01:39 - Peggy George
we'll just have one mic on when you speak--your mic :-)

01:42 - Patrick Larkin (@bhsprincipal)
not really

01:56 - @gcouros - George Couros
Can you not have a mic as well Patrick? That might be helpful

02:06 - Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
We love 1st timers. We'll be very kind, Patrick.

02:13 - Peggy George

Hi Dave Truss. You are committed to learning.

06:40 - Len H
Great to have all the Admin here today :)

06:55 - bethstill
@plnaugle I wish I was in Omaha with everyone, but I will be there next month for our state tech conference.

06:55 - Peggy George
fantastic!! great to see so many school admins here!!!

06:55 - Patrick Larkin (@bhsprincipal)
Everyone who chooses to work with students should consider themselves a school leader.

07:10 - ahdawson
I am a teacher in Georgia. I have been for 22 years.

07:11 - @gcouros - George Couros
I cant wait to see this answer!

07:21 - @gcouros - George Couros
Dave Bircher!!!!

07:23 - Dave @datruss
@plnaugle What do you mean? This is a fun Saturday night activity!

07:31 - Dave Bircher @bircherd
Hey George

07:43 - @gcouros - George Couros
Heading down to Regina this week @DaveBircher

07:45 - Peggy George
you are going to learn some fantastic ideas for using social media to connect from George and Patrick today!

07:52 - Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@Datruss I agree.

07:53 - Teresa
I keep telling my admins to use SM, but they don't see its' value!

08:03 - Ryan Collins
Facebook blocked, Twitter isn't.

08:06 - Leslie Raffelson 1
We blog facebook, but not twitter.

08:08 - connect2jamie
Our Superintendent for PR posts "official" msgs to Twitter, etc., but I wouldn't call it authentic

08:10 - Patti R 1
I control the filter in myschool I block facebook but not twitter

08:13 - Lorfehr
District doesn't block - some schools do

08:13 - Dave @datruss
question again?

08:13 - Dave Bircher @bircherd
@gcouros Cool let me know when you get in

08:13 - Peggy George
@Teresa-maybe they will if you share today's recording with them :-)

08:13 - Len H
Both blocked

08:19 - michellek107 1
"You can't make rules about tools you don't use." I say that often, but few listen.

08:20 - Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Can't answer with check because FB is blocked but not Twitter.

08:20 - teachteKBeck (Kristen B)
both at my site

08:21 - Dave @datruss
My country does- LOL

08:25 - @gcouros - George Couros
@Teresa We should never judge things until we learn about them. That would be my continuous argument

08:28 - Teresa
I have access to Twitter now because I pitched a fit!

08:29 - connect2jamie
All social sites are blocked for students, but not for tchrs. So that's nice, at least.

08:33 - Leslie Raffelson 1
Kids can do the same thing in Google Docs now that they can do in Facebook

08:43 - ahdawson
Ahdawson: everything is blocked at my school

08:46 - Peggy George
good point Paula! some blocked and some not blocked

08:52 - @gcouros - George Couros
Love this: @michellek107 1: "You can't make rules about tools you don't use." I say that often, but few listen.

08:53 - Teresa
@Peggy- I won't stop trying to convince them! :)

09:03 - connect2jamie
It has been intimated to us though that we should NOT be using any social media during school hours though. :(

09:04 - Leslie Raffelson 1
@dave - what country are you in that block both?

09:05 - Teresa
Woo-hoo, George and Patrick!!

09:13 - Patrick Larkin (@bhsprincipal)
Thanks Teresa!

10:11 - @gcouros - George Couros
Good job Patrick!

10:12 - bethstill
I have had the pleasure of meeting Patrick Larkin--he is AWESOME!

10:21 - Peggy George
Aren't they amazing guests??!!!!! :-)

10:23 - Derek McEwen
Thanks Keith - Looking forward to my first!!

10:25 - Dave Bircher @bircherd
Patrick is the man! :)

10:36 - @gcouros - George Couros
Patrick has a blog?

10:44 - MyPrincipal 1
This is going to be a good session!

10:50 - Len H
Yes, thank you both for being here today!

11:16 - Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
It's GEORGE.

11:30 - Ryan Collins
Where are the administrators?

11:36 - Eileen K
Thank you :)

11:37 - Patrick Larkin (@bhsprincipal)
Connected Principals - connect with all stakeholders

11:45 - Leslie Raffelson 1
My admin's won't be here, but I will forward them the link to the recorded session to view when they can. I really hope they do.

11:53 - Peggy George
there were many admins in our poll today :-)

12:05 - Dave Sherman
:)

12:12 - Kim Caise
that's ok, mine does too

12:13 - @shamblesguru
Good in Thailand

12:18 - Peggy George
barking dogs are part of our routine :-)

12:22 - Patrick Larkin (@bhsprincipal)
We even connect with dogs

12:24 - ahdawson
Arlene Dawson: Why aren't administrators connecting?

12:28 - Kim Caise
mine like to type too

12:41 - Len H
great to see you here today @shamplesguru :)

12:56 - Patrick Larkin (@bhsprincipal)
I tried to start a disconnected principals group but no one would join?

12:59 - Peggy George
we are not expert webcasters but we always have tons of "experts" and life long learners in our sessions every week!

13:00 - Kim Caise
@arlene, a lot of it has to do with filters and/or a lack of awareness of the power of connecting with others

13:04 - Len H
LOL!

13:07 - Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
LOL

13:18 - Peggy George
Hi Shambles! Just saw your new screencast about QR codes. Nice!! :-)

13:34 - connect2jamie
Is it that they are so massively overwhelmed w/ admin duties? @ahdawson

13:41 - Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Good evening Shambles.

13:46 - Peggy George
http://www.connectedprincipals.com/

14:11 - Kim Caise
#cpchat

14:15 - Ryan Collins
@connect2hamie, I think it's somewhat a power thing, principals don't like to look like they don't have all the answers.

14:18 - Peggy George
http://bit.ly/conprin20 Links from George and Patrick for today

14:44 - Peggy George
Presentation slides for today: http://georgecouros.ca/blog/archives/1870

14:52 - michellek107 1
Wish I could listen... but love the concept of sharing as a moral obligation

15:11 - connect2jamie
@Ryan I think it may also be that they are concerned about making a "mistake" in the public eye and in that case not being supported by THEIR supervisors.

15:15 - Peggy George
hooray Patrick!!! :-)

15:23 - @gcouros - George Couros
Patrick is awesome :)

15:26 - Kim Caise
for now, type your questions in the chat and i will compile the list for the Q&A time

15:27 - connect2jamie
Hooray @George!

15:28 - Peggy George
George has a lot of great ideas!!

15:34 - @gcouros - George Couros
I did...Patrick said it was dumb

15:53 - connect2jamie
Patrick IS awesome! Agreed!

15:56 - Peggy George
be sure to follow the #cpchat hashtag!

16:11 - ahdawson
Ahdawson: Fear seems to rule education.

16:12 - Ryan Collins
@connect2jamie, I could see that.

16:27 - bethstill
@Michelle--you are modeling that moral obligation to share today! Hope edcamp is going great. The tweets from there have been nothing but positive.

16:32 - connect2jamie
@ahdawson I think that's very true

16:41 - Peggy George
it always helps us to learn when we share it with someone else!

16:44 - @gcouros - George Couros
@Michelle are you here still or are you leaving already?

16:48 - connect2jamie
Getting to be more so in the present national climate

16:59 - Jack Hill
Great job your doing

17:08 - MyPrincipal 1
Sharing is so powerful. The more you give, the more you get!

17:09 - michellek107 1
I'm still here, but attending an EdcampOmaha session, so I'm only reading chat... will listen to archive later today.

17:25 - PEI Schools Keith
As a former principal I wish this had been available back when...the connections would have been great supports

17:26 - Dave @datruss
A network of learners... who happen to be leaders.

17:32 - Peggy George
even though there are all kinds of educators from around the world in Connected Principals, it's really nice to have a venue for Principals to connect!!

17:56 - Len H
What's really cool is that you both are doing this!

17:58 - connect2jamie
@george and @patrick are amazing examples of connected principals. They share their learning. So open. Very powerful exemplars

18:09 - Patrick Larkin (@bhsprincipal)
That's the other thing that people don't reaize - It's not that hard

18:15 - Kim Caise
lisa neilsen @innovativeedu refers to the connected principals blog quite often

18:17 - brummonds
How can you contribute?

18:19 - Peggy George
relationships really are the key!!!

18:22 - bethstill
It is truly wonderful what we can accomplish when we work together.

18:33 - Lorna Costantini 1
I look forward to reading Connected principals in my feed reader every day

18:33 - Dave Sherman
Connected Principals is terrific. The idea for a group blog for school administrators actually came from Scott McLeod who created the LeaderTalk blog.

18:38 - Dave @datruss
Too humble George, if you don't plant the seed, the tree won't grow!

19:03 - connect2jamie
so true @datruss

19:03 - teachteKBeck (Kristen B)
@bhprincipal: You make a great point about the best professional development ALL FOR FREE on social networks!!!

19:24 - Patrick Larkin (@bhsprincipal)
George is also a good role model for the fact that it doesn't matter who gets the credit.

19:32 - Peggy George
I wish I had all of this technology when I was a principal! It would have made communication with all stakeholders much easier and more effective!

19:47 - Derek McEwen
it has always been about building relationships - technology should help the process

20:10 - connect2jamie
I agree @pgeorge. It always amazes me that ppl are so resistant to using these tools. They make things EASIER!

20:17 - Kim Caise
same here @patrick as we volunteer our time each week to prepare and share with everyone

20:30 - Peggy George
we really do need to know "why" we're doing something and need to be able to articulate it

20:51 - Steve Hayes
music teachers!

21:22 - Jack Hill
Wa re we doing this - the flavour of the day.Do it right.

21:41 - Peggy George
absolutely Steve! when we had Carol Broos, Music Teacher on our show it was so clear that she had an awesome leadership role in modeling the use of technology with her students!

21:58 - Dave @datruss
@pgeorge & @connect2jamie Yes, it does make things easier... once you feel connected, but getting to that point is a challange for many.

22:07 - Steve Hayes
great respect for Carol - was here for the show!

22:24 - connect2jamie
@datruss yes it is. There is a lot of distrust of the process. It's scary.

22:50 - Peggy George
@datruss it can take a long time to feel comfortable with the sharing online! I lurked for at least a year before I got the courage to add my voice to the conversation! But I was learning all the time!

23:00 - Patrick Larkin (@bhsprincipal)
Reltionships matter - That is nothing new - But being able to connect helps us keep building

23:22 - connect2jamie
Some of my most trusted colleagues are ppl that I've never met in real life. Social media is powerful.

23:28 - Len H
That's right George. Don't you agree, Paula?

23:31 - brummonds
Lurking is a start

23:45 - Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Those of us who get it, have gotten over the fear. Can understand others who are afraid to start. Take baby steps with them.

23:55 - Peggy George
being able to see very concrete examples of how social media can enhance student learning and engagement is essential to help admins understand!

23:59 - connect2jamie
@brummonds Yes! If I could get some of my RL colleagues just to lurk, it would be a huge step!

24:05 - Lorna Costantini 1
What is gr8 about online connectios is the comfort level you develop and you aren't afraid to make mistakes or ask questions

24:08 - Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@Len H Definitely!

24:21 - MyPrincipal 1
Approaching technology can level the playing field and that can strengthen the relationships!

24:38 - Peggy George
http://www.connectedprincipals.com/guiding-principles

25:14 - Leslie Raffelson 1
are there many principals that connect with students and parents more than their staff in order to make change? If so, how are they doing it?

25:49 - Peggy George
so many of us were wanting something like Connected Principals but didn't know how to get started!

25:54 - Patrick Larkin (@bhsprincipal)
Collaboration is much more powerful than competition

26:04 - Leslie Raffelson 1
Love to see 66 people dedicated to education on a Saturday.

26:10 - Peggy George
CP on Twitter: http://twitter.com/conprin

26:10 - Derek McEwen
good question Leslie - what happens if parents ask for more?

26:18 - Lorna Costantini 1
@leslie maybe not more than staff but working well with parents George is a gr8 example

26:20 - Peggy George
CP on Facebook: www.facebook.com/pages/Connected-Principals/159329780752918

26:34 - MyPrincipal 1
I created a blog for my staff because of what I learned on twitter and from people like George and Patrick!

26:43 - Peggy George
CP at Educon: http://educon23.org/conversations/Connected_Principals_-_How_Can_We_Get_More-

26:47 - Leslie Raffelson 1
What I see is that parents never know anything different than what they went through in school. How can we expose them to options and different forms of education through using social media so they WANT the change we need.

26:48 - Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Love the different chats like #elemchat and 34thchat #cpchat that are springing uo on Twitter.

26:53 - Lorna Costantini 1
Cale Birk in Kamloops is another

27:10 - Peggy George
CP on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Connected-Principals/159329780752918

27:20 - Kim Caise
#educhat is another big on on tuesdays

27:28 - Dave Bircher @bircherd
If an administrator is passionate about something, and knows the WHY, people will follow.

27:50 - Peggy George
hashtags have really changed the way I can keep up with important learning and resources on Twitter--love Tweetdeck!

27:51 - Patrick Larkin (@bhsprincipal)
George wrote a great post on this titled "We Are All Teachers" http://georgecouros.ca/blog/archives/1733

27:59 - Peggy George
that is a great quote!

28:12 - teachteKBeck (Kristen B)
Paula: It is amazing when cybraryman lists the chats each day. I blows me away. I am just now starting to participate instead of just lurking everywhere.

28:24 - Peggy George
An Open Letter to School Administrators: http://www.connectedprincipals.com/archives/37

28:32 - Maureen
Just finished reading Switch- how to change when change is hard. Gave me some new ideas on how to help teachers/admins change at my school

28:41 - Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Me too @Peggy. I have so many columns on TweetDeck which I cha change or add to for # I want to follow.

29:06 - Peggy George
Cybraryman has so many incredible resources!! Almost one stop shopping!

29:30 - teachteKBeck (Kristen B)
Peggy it is funny to watch him participate in more than one chat at a time!!

29:35 - Leslie Raffelson 1
@Maureen - is there a link for this or is it a book?

29:36 - Peggy George
:-)

29:45 - Maureen
@Leslie- it's a book-

29:53 - Jack Hill
I am the only one on our team that is using all this and I only started 3 weeks ago.

30:07 - Eileen K
That is an amazing quote:)

30:11 - Leslie Raffelson 1
@Maureen - Thanks. I will look into it.

30:21 - MyPrincipal 1
So true!

30:25 - Peggy George
this is such an important point! it's all about empowering others, not yourself!

30:27 - Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@KristenB Yes, I am loving the conversations in the different chats. Glad you are getting involved. Lurking helps you learn. Participating helps you connect.

30:29 - Patrick Larkin (@bhsprincipal)
Hire great people and give them the resources they need...then step back and see what happens

30:34 - teachteKBeck (Kristen B)
Jack: I am the only one also. Hopefully sharing this with my principal will get the ball rolling!1

30:59 - Eileen K
How do you give a voice to your staff?

31:02 - Dave Bircher @bircherd
Empowering other...distributing leadership

31:05 - connect2jamie
@bhsprincipal my principal is wonderful at that. Trusts her staff

31:09 - Peggy George
that is such a cute iimage!!

31:09 - Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
We are the change agents in our buildings.

31:14 - teachteKBeck (Kristen B)
@Paula, it has taken me a while to believe I actually have something to contribute!!

31:17 - Peggy George
I recognize him :-)

31:23 - mandyadey
yep and I like the comment give teachers the resources, good teachers, and step back and see what happens

31:23 - Steve Hayes
we have some great teachers, but very few share any ideas!

31:23 - Ryan Collins
I'm buying the administrators a copy of Dan Pink's Drive. It sums up the research behind giving your staff the autonomy to be successful.

31:32 - michellek107 1
I love his face in that photo. Whose kid is that anyway? haha

31:37 - Kim Caise
kinder kids terrify me as a teacher

31:42 - Len H
Fear

31:44 - Peggy George
Great decision Ryan! Drive is a fantastic book to share with admins!

31:55 - Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@Kristen B That is how I felt at the beginning. But everyone has something to share. Love that.

31:57 - Ryan Collins
The paperback comes out the beginning of April. :-)

32:00 - teachteKBeck (Kristen B)
@Kim, me too, although my 7th graders do not scare me at all!!

32:18 - Kim Caise
same here - i love 6th graders

32:20 - lbott
I find the best professional development is when we meet to share ideas and resources as a faculty

32:29 - Dave Bircher @bircherd
Another good book, What Great Principals Do Differently by Todd Whitaker

32:31 - connect2jamie
kinders don't scare me, but in many ways I prefer goofy 7th graders ! LOL

32:32 - Len H
Same, love the 6th graders

32:34 - teachteKBeck (Kristen B)
@Paula :)

32:35 - Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
My 4th graders rock!

32:54 - Peggy George
I really believe by sharing we get better ourselves!

32:55 - Patrick Larkin (@bhsprincipal)
Dean Shareski did a great video on sharing - http://k12onlineconference.org/?p=610

33:05 - Ryan Collins
@bircherd, noted!!

33:09 - bethstill
Getting teachers to share is so hard. Good administrators can and should model sharing to encourage their staff to do the same.

33:16 - Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@Peggy No doubt that has happened for me.

33:24 - Peggy George
great link Patrick! that really is a great video--Sharing: The Moral Imperative!

33:29 - SandyC
Wow, I knew I was on a great staff, but listening to this 'hoarding' really tells me the people I work with are SUPER GREAT!!! They all share anything!

33:44 - Dave @datruss
From George's brother... http://educationaltechnology.ca/couros/1335 The idea of a 'gift economy' in education.

34:01 - Peggy George
it always takes more time to collaborate but the result is always better!

34:27 - Leslie Raffelson 1
Nice quote Peggy. Wish more teachers would see the benefits. We get stuck in our classes and don't collaborate enough.

34:28 - Maureen
@Leslie- this is the link for the authors http://www.heathbrothers.com/switch/ They have a lot of videos on youtube too http://www.youtube.com/user/FastCompany#p/c/A804EECB921A257D/7/JhBzxy7CneM

34:47 - Peggy George
thanks for those links Maureen!!

35:00 - Leslie Raffelson 1
@Maureen. Thank you. I will check it out.

35:16 - Peggy George
any links that are shared in the chat today will be added to our Livebinder after the show. http://livebinders.com/edit?id=70764#

35:34 - Dave Bircher @bircherd
Another good read is "what Great Teachers Do Differently by Todd Whitaker. A great read for your staff.

35:41 - MyPrincipal 1
Trust helps the staff not feel that you're just adding to their already overwhelming responsibilities.

35:46 - Peggy George
when we post the recording in our blog after the show it will include all of these links too :-)

36:25 - Steve Hayes
I think my colleagues feel sharing is "showing off" - :(

36:43 - Eileen K
Do you combine blogging and face to face meetings with your staff?

36:49 - Rubi 1
@Steve: that's a common sentiment

36:51 - Maureen
Was just listening to the livestream of ASCD- Heidi Hayes Jacobs had a lot of good ideas for admin and teachers http://www.ascd.org/conferences/Annual-Conference/Conference-Daily/2011-livestream-sessions.aspx

36:52 - michellek107 1
Sharing is not showing off... and people who think that way are really just threatened and insecure. Have to help them along and support them.

37:03 - brummonds
How do you contibute to Connected Principal?

37:07 - Peggy George
that is so true Steve Hayes! teachers are notorious about not wanting to "toot their own horns"

37:20 - Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@Steve Hayes Had that experience when I first started sharing with members of my staff.

37:46 - michellek107 1
I'm a music teacher- I encourage everyone to "toot their horns." :-)

37:47 - Peggy George
@Maureen-will they be posting recordings of Heidi Hayes Jacobs presentation?

37:57 - bethstill
@michellek107 Great point. I think we need to address that in our session at NETA.

@bethstill great idea

38:13 - Steve Hayes
@michellek107 - I'm a band director!

38:15 - Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@michelle107 I agree. Insecurity needs to be handled gently and slowly show them the way.

38:30 - Maureen
The change from the us/them dichotomy is so hard in my school. I have asked my admins to blog- to be more transparent about their thinking... even if it is a protected-private blog- just to faculty.

38:35 - MyPrincipal 1
Eileen K. I do. I try to put info on the blog that won't be known anywhere else. It makes them go to the blog. It's still new for everyone.

39:16 - Maureen
@Peggy- Yes, I think they said that all the live streams will eventually get posted on ascd edge

39:18 - Eileen K
Great idea, My Principal !

39:24 - michellek107 1
Steve: what's your Twitter name?

39:31 - Peggy George
you don't have to communicate every day on twitter or even try to keep up with everything, but you just do it as you have time and the more value you get from it the more frequently you will want to get involved

40:02 - Steve Hayes

40:22 - @gcouros - George Couros
The Connected Principal Facebook page encouraged me to make one for my own school

40:27 - Peggy George
great point! I've seen some really troubling FB groups and blogs started by people opposed to district leadership!

40:33 - Maureen
@Peggy I agree- I've been mostly offline for the last month dealing with family health issues, really miss the connections, but you have to feel like you can jump in and out as time allows

40:58 - Peggy George
yes!!! the learning is ready and waiting for us when we can get in

41:12 - Dave Bircher @bircherd
Schools should use social media for communication and to demonstrate proper use.

41:13 - Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Can FB page be translated into Spanish?

41:13 - Carol Tinney (@tinneyc)
It's our chance to get our positive message out about our district.

41:15 - MyPrincipal 1
Very Lonely!!!

41:38 - Lorna Costantini 1
Sure offsets the parking lot talk - when communications are clear and transparent

41:42 - Peggy George
it can be very lonely to be an admin! I always had to beg teachers to come and sit in the front of the room near me :-) Funny!

41:48 - jonbergmann
I feel connected as a teacher and innovator

42:17 - SandyC
Modelling--such a great learning tool! We all need good models!!

42:25 - Maureen
@Peggy- It's so true... I'm a back corner sitter myself

42:29 - Dave @datruss
I have Google searches for my school name so that when someone writes something about the school, I get notified. Like Patrick says, we want to brand ourselves.

42:30 - Derek McEwen
last seats taken at a staff meeting!!!

42:34 - Peggy George
how exciting! all those ipads!

42:45 - connect2jamie
@pgeorge YES! my princpal is not "connected" in terms of social media, but she is a master @ managing ppl by keeping ppl informed, treating her staff like adults that are worthy of trust.

42:45 - MyPrincipal 1
Good idea Dave!

42:48 - Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Go VanMeter!

42:49 - Peggy George
absolutely! just like in church!!

42:54 - bethstill
I believe one of the most important things that I think Connected Principals does is that is serves as a model for other administrators and districts to see how others are already leveraging social media to connect. Why reinvent the wheel?

43:04 - 145lewis
I seek out Burlington Public School's teacher bloggers and websites regularly

43:19 - Leslie Raffelson 1
I think if I did a survey, parents and students would like to see a facebook page for our school for current things coming up. Would be easy to check and not one more page they forget to go to.

43:39 - Jack Hill
How can we convince students to bring own laptops - more and more no $.

43:42 - Dave @datruss
I meant 'Google Alerts' not searches.

43:44 - Peggy George
if you would like a professional development certificate for today's webinar you can sign up on the survey that will pop up when you exit Elluminate today

44:10 - Bill Ferriter
Hey George...Alec sent me to chaperone.

44:21 - Peggy George
Bill Ferriter was a guest on our show a few weeks ago and it was an awesome presentation! Be sure to check it out!

44:21 - Maureen
Our school facebook page is more geared to alums... but it is a preK-9 school, most of our kids are not old enuf to have facebook accts- not that they don't anyway

44:33 - @gcouros - George Couros
Good @Bill

44:39 - Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@Bill George has a lot of chaperones today.

44:53 - Derek McEwen
social media new communication tools - e-mail is old??!!

44:53 - Bill Ferriter
No joke, y'all. The work that George and Patrick are doing with Connected Prinicpals is simply outstanding.

44:57 - Ryan Collins
We use a Facebook page that pulls content from our main website, so we don't have to manage two sites.

44:58 - Eileen K
It can be disheartening to receive a new administrator every three years... the staff constantly has to change to meet the goals of the new admin.

45:00 - @gcouros - George Couros
Thanks Bill :)

45:30 - Lorfehr
our facebook account was created for parents to share information/ideas for an inquiry project - elementary school so I accept only parents as friends

45:31 - Bill Ferriter
I love the idea that principals are willing to make themselves intellectually vulnerable in social media spaces.

45:39 - Peggy George
when you lead by example like George and Patrick are talking about everyone in your school will feel empowered as leaders!

45:42 - Lorna Costantini 1
It was a terrific conversation

45:48 - teachteKBeck (Kristen B)
@Bill my students and I are loving Kiva. Thanks for sharing that!! My teaching partner and I are also doing the collaborative wiki project starting in a few weeks!!! Thank YOU!!

45:51 - lbott
As a teacher, enjoyed the Educon session.

45:54 - Leslie Raffelson 1
@ryan - I will have to explore that so we dont have more work.

45:57 - Bill Ferriter
That's super important. Models the kinds of behaviors that administrators expect from teachers.

@teacherteBeck- I missed the collaborative wiki project- is there a link for that?

46:52 - michellek107 1

Principals: Another advantage of interacting in SM spaces is you publicly show your teachers what you know and can do.

47:44 - Patrick Larkin (@bhsprincipal)
We can show concrete examples of how connecting helps students

48:07 - Bill Ferriter
That's gotten harder considering how busy y'all are---and how busy we are.

48:09 - Peggy George
we have compiled a lot of awesome resources on our Connected Leadership Moodle site--feel free to explore and share any that are helpful to you

48:10 - Jack Hill
Does what is happening reflect the theory?

48:26 - teachteKBeck (Kristen B)
@Bill, I sure will!! I am sharing your stuff at our next staff meeting so that some of the other teacher teams can try it if they like. I will probably have many quesitons!! I really wish I could meet you at ASCD this weekend, I live in Sacramento so it is so tempting to drive down to SF and buy your book! :)

48:37 - Patrick Larkin (@bhsprincipal)
Bill - the book is awesome - can't wait until everyone can get their hands on it.

48:44 - Peggy George

49:16 - Dave Bircher @bircherd

oh?

50:16 - Patrick Larkin (@bhsprincipal)
Mom and Dad c - This is "Smart Alec' Not Alec

50:19 - ahdawson
Ahdawson: no office day seems like a wonderful idea. i will share with my principal.

50:22 - connect2jamie
must go--RL calls! Thanks all--great session! Thanks to @gcouros and @bhsprincipal you're both doing amazing work!

50:27 - Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Alec stop haggling your Brother from the real @Mom and Dad Couros.

50:32 - Jack Hill
I visit classes or else I loose touch.

50:32 - jonbergmann
the flip was not invented by karl fisch. It was actually me and aaron sams

50:45 - Peggy George
no office day really isn't a no brainer because it's very similar to teachers being out and having a sub--you have a lot of work to catch up on when you're out of the office BUT it's essential to do!! Building relationships!

50:47 - jonbergmann
It came from me

50:49 - lbott
Saw the idea and starting using in my Algebra classroom

50:54 - teachteKBeck (Kristen B)
My assistant principal has been at our school for 2 years and has never been in my classroom while I am teaching, maybe only one or two times for a meeting.

51:22 - MyPrincipal 1
I worked from a table in one of the main hallways one day and everyone thought I was crazy! It was fun.

51:30 - jonbergmann
we have been flipping the class for 4 yrs. we just finisted the book on the flipped class and it will be coming out this fall

51:31 - michellek107 1
Karl doesn't take credit for the flip- people just give it to him

51:46 - Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@jonbergmann What you and Aaron pioneered with the Flipped Classroom is a great innovation.

51:53 - marragem
@Bill Ferriter - I understand how busy she is. Just 5 mins would be good

51:58 - teachteKBeck (Kristen B)
@Bill and @marragem: yes, I know that my administrators would rather spend their day in the classrooms, but all of the other stuff gets in the way!

52:11 - Peggy George
we can't communicate that often enough!! it's not about the technology but it's about the learning!

52:14 - Mom And Dad Couros 1
although Fisch Flip is empowered because of technology - but yes, agreed, it's not ABOUT technology

52:24 - jonbergmann
and the whole deal is it doesn't matter who gets the credit it matters is how it helps kids become better learners and helps kids

52:24 - michellek107 1
tech is just a tool- absolutely has to be about the learning. Love it.

52:26 - Leslie Raffelson 1
@jonbergmann - I finally have one teacher in 4-5-6 math doing a flip a little bit and experimenting. hopefully a hs science teacher flipping next year.

technology allows us to go deeper, but it's not the point.

52:42 - Bill Ferriter
@marragem: Agreed. What I always tell myself is that if I want strong relationships with my administrator, I've got to work at it too.

52:48 - jonbergmann
we have a ning about the flip: http://vodcasting.ning.com

52:51 - lbott
Thanks @jonbergmann -- flipping working well in my classroom, especially with students who were struggling

53:08 - Kim Caise
i feel so ignorant - what is flipping?

53:11 - jonbergmann
flipping truly is tranformative

53:12 - Peggy George

53:32 - marragem
@Bill Ferriter - agree. Have a great realtionship with her, she's very supportive. Still...

59:45 - jonbergmann
@leslie: you have no idea how busy we are. We also have the Flipped Conference and are doing individual district trainings of 2 days x3 and more. We have another district who contacted us yesterday for more training. It is quite overwheming. I just got back from speaking at a conf yesterday in Denver during my spring break

How did you get each teacher to blog, George?

1:01:28 - SandyC
conference in Vancouver??? Is that USA or Canada???

1:01:30 - Patrick Larkin (@bhsprincipal)
Imagine having all of your teachers blogging. What a great resource on what is happening in each classroom!

1:01:40 - Carol Tinney (@tinneyc)
Modeling is so critical for administrators!

1:01:40 - Peggy George
parents would love that!!

1:01:44 - Leslie Raffelson 1
@jonbergmann - I saw that. Was there in March in your class. I am a tech integrator in a small school in NE colorado. Thought about coming down, but not sure it will work this summer.

1:02:06 - Connected Principals
George, where and when will you be n Vancouver?

1:02:17 - Lorna Costantini 1
Blogging teachers provide parents insight in to the classroom and help build a sense of trust when teachers demonstrate their learning

1:02:29 - Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Do they do it because you require it or because you modeled for them?

1:02:34 - Peggy George
that's a great suggestion--help them create their blog so they don't get bogged down in the technology and can focus on writing in it!

Thanks, George, I am sure that your modeling is so inspiring. Our district would like teachers to blog but I don't know of any of our admins who blog.

1:10:39 - @gcouros - George Couros
@Roxanne None if you use WordPress MU

1:10:45 - bethstill
Thank you Peggy!

Yeah, so our ISTE Newbie @gcouros.

1:10:58 - Steve Hayes
We use wordpress for our school's / classroom websites, but have comments turned off - are comments on or off?

1:11:15 - Dave @datruss
That's GREAT!

1:11:19 - Ryan Collins
@Peggy, who was talking about the path quote, George or Patrick?

1:11:29 - @gcouros - George Couros
@Steve Why would you turn the comments off? That really takes away from the learning in blogs

@Peggy George - at recent meeting with my principal she remarked how far aead of the rest of the staff I was. Asked her what she was going to do to narrow the gap. No real response :(

1:11:56 - Ryan Collins
We use WPMU, and comments are on but moderated.

1:11:59 - bethstill
In order for the Newbie project to work we have to have lots of people make small donations. Please consider helping get George there!

1:12:03 - @gcouros - George Couros
We moderate

1:12:07 - marragem
I can't for ISTE! I fly out in 78 days!!!!

1:12:19 - Patrick Larkin (@bhsprincipal)

1:14:00 - bethstill
@Paula...help.

1:14:13 - Steve Hayes
I'm not sure - I think the tech people were scared of inappropriate comments

1:14:23 - Peggy George
if you click on the link for Classroom 2.0 LIVE Links you will find the link for the survey for the PD certificate too. You can request certificates for recorded sessions too :-)

1:15:30 - Peggy George
Bye Ian

1:15:52 - Patrick Larkin (@bhsprincipal)
Peggy - My pleasure to be here in a classroom 2.0 show!

1:15:58 - Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@bethstill That is great. I can't wait to be a part of the Newbie Cafe at ISTE11. Getting so excited to see you, George, and other PLN members there.

1:16:20 - marragem
Thanks everyone. Time for me to head back to bed before the sun rises! Enjoy the rest of your day everyone

1:16:23 - Dave @datruss
Just wrote about how important an authentic audience is... it makes us and our students better writers!

1:16:26 - Peggy George
that's another important point to share with admins--a blog post reaches many more people than an email that goes to one person or a small group

1:16:49 - Len H
or Twitter

1:16:53 - SharonG
Please check livebinder link. It says Private...must have access key

1:17:02 - bethstill
@Dave---could you please share the link to that post?

1:17:12 - Peggy George
learning how to handle negative comments in social media is really important! look at all of the celebrities who get into trouble that way :-)

1:17:16 - Julie Cunningham (@techfacil)
Yes- thank you! Playground analogy is so true.

Oops! You are trying to access a Private Binder

1:17:36 - Peggy George
the livebinder isn't private

1:17:44 - @gcouros - George Couros
When we use Wordpress.org we make our own rules for the school. We host the site.

1:17:59 - nikki
Final question: Where can we request/hire clones of Patrick and George? :-) Thanks for sharing your inspiring work!
