Hey, Hey, Paula... Good Morning

11:58 - Aunttammie
@kristen...just tried to log in on my nexus 7 tablet, and got a message that it wasn't supported

12:23 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Good morning, Peggy. The flu bug got me I'm feeling achy today.

12:28 - @SteveHayes_RB60
Excited to be here!

12:33 - @teachteKBeck(Kristen) #2
@Aunttammie, I know! I hoping it will be supported some time soon!!!

i subbed at a school and it was great seeing students using IPADS and Macbooks.

13:58 - Peggy George

14:33 - Stidmama
I have been stretching the rules in some schools when subbing. Older kids doing research on their smart phones!

We do not even have wifi in my school!!

16:04 - Ruth Nation
@Suzanne - Vandalia

16:08 - Stidmama
None of the seven districts I am in are officially byod

16:11 - Mary
...but we will fourth quarter!

16:13 - @teachteKBeck(Kristen) #2
Or district for that matter!

16:22 - Rhonda

16:27 - Stidmama
But many teachers bend the rules

16:30 - Ruth Nation
No our district is not BYOD

16:44 - Jane Z
Not officially - but some of our teachers do have kids bring things in for special projects.

16:47 - Rhonda
connection will play a big role


17:18 - @teachteKBeck(Kristen) #2
I am bending the rules in my classroom and let my students use thier devices... I'm a rebel!

17:24 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
I have only done a handful of BYOD days in my classroom.

17:31 - Stidmama
My devices do not always have a connection, but the kids usually do

17:32 - Rhonda
lol, kbeck

17:38 - Oronoque #4
I have used it informally, not built into my activities...but students are free to use it

17:43 - Suzanne Beitling
I'm also the rebel at my school KBeck :)

18:15 - Susie @shighley
I think we need to be realisitc about future uses of technology

18:27 - Rhonda

Yay for rebels!

18:31 - @teachteKBeck(Kristen) #2
Yeah Suzanne! I'm hoping to share this session with my district!

18:31 - Stidmama
Sometimes they do... Sometimes they don't

18:32 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
You go @KristenB. :)

18:49 - Jillian
I just get concerned about how many students are actually able to access this technology. Many of them don't have Smartphones or IPADs

18:54 - Suzanne Beitling
Me Too!

19:03 - Jeremy
I'm very curious to hear from the folks who think the benefits do NOT outweight their concerns

19:03 - @teachteKBeck(Kristen) #2
Glen, you know that I have been bending the rules for a long time in all aspects of my teaching!!

19:04 - Joe
Benefits vs. drawbacks depends on school culture and teachers being able to apply the technology.

19:12 - Jillian

Si, Kristen :)

19:18 - Rhonda
Jeremy I like that

19:21 - Stidmama
Jillian, that is my concern in our rural, low income districts

19:40 - Becki Tharp
Jillian, I have the same problem. Not many devices at home.

19:43 - Stidmama
But lately I see the kids sharing a lot more often.

19:51 - Rhonda

19:52 - Jeremy
I LOVE that this chat is being closed captioned! One of the schools I work with is a schol for the Deaf.

19:55 - Ruth Nation
absolutely many of our students don't have internet access at home

20:02 - Kim Caise

20:12 - Dotty
my concern is data plans students might have. How does the school address that?

20:19 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
The Classroom 2.0 Live gals are such ROCK STARS. :)

20:25 - Jillian
I just don't want to ostracize the students without the latest technology

20:26 - Suzanne Beitling
Yes - many low income don't have computers / devices, but at least in my district, all of them find a way to get on FB

20:32 - Becki Tharp
Dotty. good question!

20:38 - Kim Caise
usually the parents are told that any costs incurred by the students the parents are responsible for

20:41 - @teachteKBeck(Kristen) #2
Right on Paula!! Love the Classroom 2.0 ladies!

20:46 - Rhonda
Agrd, Paula

Our district is going to try and negotiate with some providers for families that have income limitations

21:16 - Rhonda
Suzanne, that's interesting isn't it, driven by desire they find a way

21:31 - Suzanne Beitling
That's what I think too :)

21:31 - Dotty
I had a student that figured out how to use his IPOD touch to make phone calls. If everyone used school wifi, it would slow the network down.

21:38 - @jackiegerstein
More are connected than you think - see Pew Research Networked Learners

21:52 - Rhonda
Wonderful SisQuitman, there are a lot of opportunities coming

@Dotty - bandwidth can be an issue

22:09 - Susie @shighley
Love that term "educational engineer"

22:10 - @teachteKBeck(Kristen) #2
Glen, so important in your extremely rural area!

22:18 - Stidmama
Many local districts now provide wifi, I think there are only a couple that don't

22:22 - Rhonda
Jackie, <3 your posts

22:31 - Jeremy
@Jillian: One benefit of BYOT is that it is a great way to teach students to SHARE :)

22:50 - Suzanne Beitling
@Stid - we have wifi but admin won't let anyone use it for fear of security!

Gives students ownership

23:02 - Kim Caise
she sure is!

23:04 - Becki Tharp
Peggy is amazing!

23:05 - Susie @shighley
That's Peggy!

23:08 - Jillian
Jeremy, Great point. I think most of them would be willing to share!

23:11 - Peggy George
thank you so much!!

23:16 - @teachteKBeck(Kristen) #2
Collaboration is a key in all aspects of learning and integrating technology1

@suzanne...bummer! My admin. and I are trying to open things up

23:38 - Peggy George (Steve Hayes’log)

23:45 - Rhonda
Uh-Oh now everyone knows...Peggy I was trying to keep that a secret :)

23:46 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Hi Jackie! I agree. I teach in a high poverty school (85% free and reduced lunch) but 90% of my students have access. I do a survey at the beginning of the school year and update it regularly as my students tell me they got a device.

24:03 - Stidmama
Secure wifi is not that difficult... Guest accounts can throttle bandwidth and have firewalls.

24:04 - clinds
It's weird that I don't see anything in the chat. Is this working for people?

24:20 - Peggy George
tons of fabulous links in our Livebinder today:

24:33 - Rhonda
We see you clinds :)

24:34 - Peggy George
yes @clinds we are typing in the chat

24:46 - Suzanne Beitling
@Stid - I'm convinced... the 3 in charge of district tech won't listen to reason :(

24:47 - Peggy George
re-tweets are a wonderful thing!!! :-)

25:07 - Peggy George (BYOT TweetChat)

25:07 - @jackiegerstein
Nice Paula - did you post your survey in a blog?

25:11 - Dotty
Students may have their own devices, but usually due to cost of data, they frequently get disconected due to lack of ability to pay the monthly bill.

25:17 - Kim Caise
is that 9pm EST?

25:19 - @teachteKBeck(Kristen) #2
what time zone is the chat?

That's one chat I'll have to check out for sure!

25:23 - Rhonda
do you record them and send them out to parents/community?

25:26 - Nathan
yes est

25:27 - Jeremy
9PM eastern US, yes

25:44 - Peggy George
if any of you have links to share related to BYOT/D be sure to put them in the chat and I'll add them to the Livebinder after the show.

25:47 - Jeremy
And please feel free to contribute to the #BYOTchat during this webinar!

25:55 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
@Jackie, no I didn't. I need to write a blog about it. Thanks for reminding me.

25:59 - Tim Clark #2
All of our chats are archived and posted on the #byotchat website at :-)

26:13 - Peggy George
there was a fantastic #byotchat this week with BernaJean Porter!

26:14 - @jackiegerstein
My philosophy is to teach in a way that students want to and naturally learn.

26:25 - Rhonda
For goodness Sake if you're not on Twitter, I need to know why

26:31 - Peggy George (Steve Hayes: How the BYOTchat Began)

26:39 - Aunttammie
9-10 eastern?

26:49 - Peggy George (BYOTchat-Twitter Chat Archives)

26:50 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
You can learn so much from Twitter chats. I help moderate #4thchat on Mondays at 7 pm CST.

26:54 - Rhonda
Thanks Tim

26:55 - Stidmama
@suzanne... Convince the principal to go to bat for you? Or the parents can contact the school board. Connected schools make for good PR

27:09 - Joe
That's a great point. byot is about teaching in ways many teachers have never seen modeled before. I think that makes many teachers hesitant to try it.

27:10 - Peggy George (Cybraryman: List of educational chats)

27:13 - Stidmama
I have twitter, but chats are confusing there

27:17 - Tim Clark #2
Yes - #BYOTchat is 9-10 PM EST!

27:22 - Rhonda
True, Stidmama

27:27 - Rhonda
Training time

27:41 - Joe
@stidmama, it is alot of info very fast

27:52 - @teachteKBeck(Kristen) #2
My students have started having hashtag chats live in class... It is hilarious! When they see me on campus they yell #favoriteteacher... The other teachers on campus ask "what is a hashtag?"

27:53 - Tim Clark #2
You can directly follow the thread of the chat on TweetChat at

27:54 - Kim Caise
it is best to use twitterfall or tweetdeck for twitter chats to help make the twitter feeds more manageable

27:59 - Rhonda
Yes Joe

28:01 - @jackiegerstein
Students help one another troubleshoot the device issues.

28:04 - Jeremy
@Stidmama This chat is a great intro to the #BYOTchat...

28:16 - Peggy George (Lisa Nielsen: 7 Myths about BYOD Debunked)

28:21 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Not on Twitter yet? Go to and pt in a hashtag like #byotchat, #4thchat, #sschat, etc. and you can see the tweets and links that are being shared.

28:31 - Rhonda
Agrd, Jackie, a lot of great EdTweeter's that support teachers

28:42 - Joe
#Byotchat moves at a manageable pace. #edchat is insanely fast.

28:42 - Jeremy
Feel free to join the chat as a "lurker" or just view the archives on after the chat ends

28:59 - Rhonda
Start small and with a mentor and it becomes easier faster

29:10 - Stidmama
Thanks, i will check those out when i go to my laptop

29:15 - Peggy George
the BYOTchat team also had a fantastic podcast interview on Teachercast that is in the Livebinder so you can listen to it later. (Teachercast podcast with #BYOTchat Team-June 19, 2012)

29:16 - Suzanne Beitling
@ Stid, tried and retried. Parents are a good option - but just as many parents don't understand the need either

29:25 - Rhonda
Learned so much from a Library Science Grad Student

29:27 - @jackiegerstein
I want students to learn how to use their own devices for learning.

29:28 - clinds #3
Not sure if anyone can see this, but my chat window doesn't seem to be working. I don't see any posts.

29:42 - Peggy George
these are all the questions we hear all the time! so glad he's mentioning them!

30:00 - Rhonda
re-enter clinds and see if that clears up

30:21 - Tim Clark #2
Students and teachers both need a lot of practice to learn how to learn with their own technology. It's a huge shift in pedagogy and they won't learn if they don't try. :-)

30:25 - Peggy George
@clinds try restoring the default layout of the chat. Go to View>Restore Default Layout and see if that works

30:29 - @teachteKBeck(Kristen) #2
Yes, jackiegerstein - I have the same global view - everyone should learn how to use the devices they have to make their lives and learning more productive.

30:44 - Stidmama
Clinds has tried three times already. I wonder if the chat window is too small for her to see it scroll?

30:45 - @jackiegerstein
Clinds needs to use the arrow on right side of CHAT - but can't see this message

30:54 - @jackiegerstein
left side I mean

31:00 - Rhonda
Peggy, clinds brings up a good point, if someone can't see chat they may need an Alt way to connect

31:03 - Peggy George
it's so important that students learn to choose the best tool for the task!

31:04 - Joe
Look at how the music industry changed with tech vs. education. Ed is very slow to change by comparison.

31:21 - @jackiegerstein
There is an arrow on left side of CHAT - needs to be facing down

31:35 - Peggy George
thanks everyone for helping @clinds :-)

31:42 - Rhonda
Interactive Web tools supporting the lesson makes such an impact

31:44 - Stidmama
Yes! Make the focus the learning, not the specific format!

31:53 - Rhonda
Using the tools to create the inspiration to learn

@Kristen - that definitely provides contextual use & learning

32:16 - Peggy George
thank you Jeremy :-)

32:38 - @SteveHayes_RB60
We're also chatting live on Twitter using #BYOTchat

33:00 - Rhonda
Agree Jeremy

33:00 - Peggy George
they have a great website!! Cambridge School of Weston ( )

Funny...we put Chromebooks into a classroom, and a few students suddenly brought their personal Chromebooks

33:07 - Rhonda
Community Learning is Huge to me

33:08 - @teachteKBeck(Kristen) #2
@Glen, and it ensures the students become teachers as they share how to use the particular device they have1

33:20 - Rhonda
Relevant and meaningful experiential learning

33:35 - Peggy George (Jeremy Angoff)

33:51 - Peggy George (Roanoke BYOT website)

33:55 - Rhonda
The tool becomes a way to express instead of learning a tool

34:12 - Peggy George ( curated by Jeremy Angoff-1:1 and BYOD)

34:19 - Rhonda
Tools are designed to support the exploration

34:30 - Ruth Nation
Do students with their own tech connect to the district's internet?

34:33 - Stidmama
Yes, so nice to let kids have choices, choosing what works best in each case.

I wonder how many schools that open up BYOD/T make it a point to have teachers be inviting of that into their classrooms?

34:53 - Peggy George
mobile is the key word :-) learning can happen anywhere, anytime! doesn't matter which tools/devices but it matters that they are mobile

34:59 - Rhonda
Only a District Web Page in my area Ruth

35:14 - Nathan
For example when demostrating blogging with poster paper and post-it notes. Some students like this and some prefer tech version

35:15 - @SteveHayes_RB60
Rhonda - Yes students access our school's wifi

35:18 - @teachteKBeck(Kristen) #2
I notice that many of my students have apple devices and I am a google/android girl so we learn from each other and the students are the apple experts!

35:18 - Peggy George (Tim Clark’ blog: Tim is the Coordinator for Instructional Technology for Forsyth County Schools, Georgia)

35:38 - Rhonda
Unless there is a need for a Learning Mgmt System connection

@Rhonda - as said before, the IT staff can set up a guest network with or without passwords to join

35:44 - Susie @shighley
I get many great educational ideas from FB. like twitter, a lot of it is in whom you follow

35:50 - Kim Caise
i learned more from twitter in the past few years than all 20+ years of teaching

35:58 - Rhonda
Agreed, Sisqitman

36:03 - Tim Clark #2
We work with our teachers SISQITMAN to help them make the change to using BYOT in their classrooms. Everyone is in a different place in the learning curve.

36:06 - Nathan
don't forget google+

36:08 - Peggy George
there are some great Livebinders, Scoop.its and Symbaloo webmixes in the Livebinder today with tons of resources including resources for non-Apple devices

36:16 - Rhonda
There is benefit to customize there, Sisqitman

36:25 - Jeremy
@mluhtala's We Trust You video:

36:27 - Peggy George
:-) hard to follow chat and present

36:31 - Nathan
Several teacher link up through their google accounts

36:38 - @teachteKBeck(Kristen) #2
I'm right there with you Kim!!! My twitter peeps keep me going right now as I come up against great resistance in my school and district1

36:39 - Peggy George
we'll add that video to our Livebinder

36:56 - @jackiegerstein
Mobile Learning (with BYOT): End of Course Student Survey

@TIm - thanks for that. We're just getting started shifting the culture in our district with BYOT

37:14 - Peggy George
thanks for that link @Jackie!!!

37:18 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
From Miguel Guhlin's blog

37:36 - Peggy George
I'll add these links to our Livebinder :-)

37:36 - Ruth Nation
If students don't connect to school wifi how do you handle CIPA?

37:37 - @jackiegerstein
:) Peggy

@Kristen - let me know if there is anything else I can do to help with that :)

38:19 - Rhonda
Good question and point Ruth

38:19 - @SteveHayes_RB60
BYOT opens up so many creativity possibilities!

38:28 - @teachteKBeck(Kristen) #2
I am definitely going to use you as a resource/helper Glen now that we are connected!

38:35 - Jeremy
If we have time today I'm happy to talk about some examples of students using BYOT out of the classroom. Just raise your hand and ask me about it later

38:43 - Peggy George
we'll ask your question later @ruth Thanks for posting it

38:44 - Stidmama
Question about byot being too easy for kids to just im friends instead of doing work? Disengaged teens I know will text the whole time instead of learning.

38:47 - @SteveHayes_RB60
Video & Audio - and sharing to the world!

38:56 - Tim Clark #2
CIPA only requires that schools filter school-owned technology. We do not need to filter student-owned data plans.

39:03 - Rhonda
Some other concerns are Teachers being able to effectively produce curriculum with BYOT

39:10 - Joe
Ruth, that's one reason schools need wifi. To be cops compliant. I don't know when Fed will wake up and start making wifi in all schoos

@Ruth - I don't believe we're required to manage at that level. If we were, we'd have to outlaw mobile devices

39:21 - Ruth Nation
Do you ever have a tool that you want kids to use and it doesn't work on their device?

39:29 - Stidmama
I have also seen kids highly engaged, but they are the ones who engage no matter what

39:34 - Joe
*a priority

39:46 - Rhonda
Halo budget

40:05 - Peggy George
what's the link for GroupBoard?

@Ruth - you have to think that over at some level and decide how far reaching you want the app across devices

40:24 - @SteveHayes_RB60
Stidmama - You are right about disengaged students, but as educators we are responsible to make sure our lessons are engaging. -

40:44 - Peggy George (Wikispaces home page)

40:51 - Kim Caise

41:00 - Peggy George
there are so many apps and tools that support collaboration!

41:03 - Peggy George
thanks Kim

41:05 - Rhonda
@Steve I find that teachers are so creative about content, although there are those who struggle with knowledge, time, and support

41:15 - Nathan
Students need to be allowed to play to establish norms for the classroom

41:23 - @jackiegerstein
BYOT activities need to be well-designed, pedagoically sound, and naturally engaging not just a repeat of traditional pedagogy on devices

41:29 - Rhonda
We have more tools than Tech Ed's and that is a gap

@jackiegerstein - Well said

41:52 - Rhonda
Very much Agree Jackie

41:57 - Susie @shighley
I've become a 24/7 learner; there's no reason my students can't too

41:57 - Peggy George
I think that's true for all of us. We often don't take the time to really explore our own communities!

42:14 - Peggy George
awesome point @Jackie!!!

42:17 - Dotty
I think teachers have so much content to cover, they get overwhelmed. Flipping the classroom helps.

42:30 - Becki Tharp
Susie, good point!

42:32 - Rhonda
Connecting to students, like anything else is a process of reaching them where they are and with what we have

42:50 - @SteveHayes_RB60
Rhonda - You are right - change is slow - schools need to provide PD (both on BYOT tech and teaching w/ tech) - AND PD needs to have time for teachers to practice

WIth the big push for the Common Core, that's where all the PD time & $$ are going.

43:04 - Rhonda
Starting somewhere doesn't have to be re-inventing the wheel, there are so many GREAT resources available to support, collaborate, and share

43:18 - Peggy George
we need to help the students think of it as "learning" and not "schooling" :-) learning should be 24/7 for a lifetime as Susie mentioned!

43:23 - Rhonda
Developing any new process is Time, Labor, and $ consuming

43:31 - Joe
@dotty, it does. Makes it so students have to feel some of the pressure to cover material. Creates motivation to learn independently.

43:43 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
It is sad when the tools are available but aren't used properly in classroom settings. Teachers need to see how tech integration is not an add-on but a necessary part of each lesson.

43:56 - Ruth Nation
Love the conversations!

44:00 - Nathan
why does it have to be a new process? Add tech to what you already do well

44:06 - Rhonda
Remember this past year some school's just joined the System and some moved out - Each part is worth noting

44:13 - Peggy George
so true @Rhonda! and that's why compilations of resources about these new tools/strategies really help us find the best people/information available

44:16 - Rhonda
:) Ruth

44:22 - Jenn
We have smartboards in our classroom and i is amazing the amount of internet based sites there are that are FREE to use with kids

44:37 - Becki Tharp
Sisqitman, true - it's discouraging about PD and $, but I've found I need to do what's important for me and my students. Usually on my own. That's why I love groups like this!

44:48 - Rhonda
Nathan, I think sometimes creating a lesson plan for technology requires a new process

44:50 - Suzanne Beitling
@Paula and Nathan, most teachers in my district view tech as one more thing to add on top of everything else, instead of what I think it should be: using tech to solve problems you have in class

44:57 - Stidmama
Love how city kids have chances to see tech and work in many places. How to do this with remote rural kids?

44:58 - Rhonda
Thank You, I was just going to say that

45:01 - @SteveHayes_RB60
Jenn - Great that you have smartboards!

45:21 - Jenn
That's the only link to tech we really have in the classroom unfortunately

45:24 - Suzanne Beitling
Jenn- make your own smartboard with a wii remote and $20 in parts from radio shack

45:30 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
My students each got their own blog for the #Blog121212 Project I hosted. Many worked on their blog posts from home as well as at school.

45:33 - Rhonda
Kids will learn from trying and using, the development of lessons may be to focus on a specific area

@Becki - as a Tech. Coord. I try to find small ways to get into teacher's practice and student learning.

45:42 - Peggy George
there was a fantastic webinar this week on PBL with Suzie Boss on specifically about the 4C's :-)

45:56 - Rhonda
I wouldn't say a certain skill, but that's me, I think they show us more than skil

45:57 - Jeremy
The conversations and resources that you all are sharing in this chat are wonderful! Please also tweet them to #BYOTchat if you are able!

I love when teachers have their students publish their work online!

46:06 - Jenn
I let my students play wii sport last year using the smartboard as a reward

46:35 - Rhonda
Jenn :) fantastic, how was that?

46:49 - Suzanne Beitling
I'm saying if your district doesn't have the $$, you can do it yourself for cheap

46:50 - Peggy George (Socrative-student response system great for mobile devices)

46:52 - Dotty
learning and PD on demand. I like being able to do the PD on my own schedule. Most face to face are a waste of time.

46:58 - Jenn
My question though is what about schools that are Title 1 schools and don't have much moeny for these devices?

46:58 - @SteveHayes_RB60
Collaboration - doesn't always mean student to student either.

47:13 - Stidmama
I think any time kids get to work together it s rich learning. I loaned mybipad with a logic game on it to one kid and a cluster of five began working together

47:17 - Peggy George (GreenScreen Lite app for iPhone/iPad-free) (GreenScreen Studio app for iPhone/iPad-$2.99)

47:23 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
I have students (4th graders) that log on to Edmodo every night and during the weekend because they want to chat to each other. They also love that I post new content to Edmodo on Saturday mornings that they can work on over the weekend.

47:26 - Ruth Nation
The problem with socrative is only 50 users.

47:29 - Jeremy
@Stidman: I haven't had much of an opportunity to work in rural areas (YET!) but there are still interesteing places to visit and people ot meet in rural areas... You can also take advantage of mobile learning devices to visit other locations.

47:39 - Kim Caise
there are tons of grants to apply for to acquire tech devices

47:41 - Rhonda

47:43 - Jeremy
In the classroom, you can bring people from around the world into the classroom with tools like Skype

@Dotty - I'm working to point teachers to things they're interested in and working to build a website to make that easy for them. Thx for that...

47:49 - Becki Tharp
Sisqitman, I stuggle to get other staff to try new technology. So, I try to lead by examlple as best I can.

47:54 - Peggy George (Edmodo home page-free to join)

47:56 - Nathan
When I visit with schools, I ask teachers to bring in activities they are already comfortable using. We show how to add apps to those activities with out changing alot.

47:57 - Tim Clark #2
Edmodo is a great way to begin implementing BYOT in the classroom and to focus on those 4 C's of digital age learning.

47:57 - Rhonda
Kim, very true

48:11 - @jackiegerstein
I had students share their devices with students who didn't have their own - they loved being able to work together

48:17 - Ruth Nation
@Jeremy Come visit us! http:/

48:26 - Peggy George
there are lots of professional teacher groups on Edmodo where you can share resources and ask questions!

48:28 - Rhonda
Tim, certainly is Teacher supported for interacting in a safe and inspiring environment

48:30 - Suzanne Beitling
@ Kim like which grants?

48:37 - Jenn
On my grade I came up with a whole STEM module for my grade and teachers who never wanted to use the internet or smartboard before are USING IT!

:) Becki - keep it up!

48:45 - Rhonda
I like that fact to Peggy

48:48 - Kim Caise
schools can also use e-rate money to purchase tech hardware as well. it has to be a priority for the campus

48:56 - Peggy George
students have the imagination but too often teachers don't trust them to use it!

48:59 - Jeremy
I believe there are a few people in this CHAT from around the COUNTRY and around the world... this would be a GREAT place to establish relationships with other CLASSES that you can bring into your own classroom

49:03 - Jenn
what is e-rate?

49:08 - Peggy George (Voicethread for Educators)

49:10 - Becki Tharp
Thank you Sisqitman! I will never give up!

49:13 - Rhonda
That's new Kim, thanks

49:16 - Peggy George
SockPuppet app is so much fun!

49:25 - @teachteKBeck(Kristen) #2
Instagram is the tool my middle schoolers love. I created a "teacher" account that my students can follow and I post pictures of me and my family on the weekend or doing any activity. I'm trying to figure out how to use instagram to have students take math pictures to make real life problems collaboratively...

E-Rate is federal discounting program for schools and libraries

49:39 - Rhonda
Jeremy, ultimately life changing.

49:46 - Peggy George (Inside the Classroom/Outside the Box: BYOD Resources)

50:03 - @jackiegerstein
With BYOT, I am more concerned with the "app gap" as most had their own devices but not necessarily app enabled devices

50:26 - @jackiegerstein

50:26 - Jenn
there's an app on the iphone called camscanner that you take pictures of anything for example a book and it can be turned into a pdf file

50:28 - Tim Clark #2

50:38 - Stidmama
Celly? Sully?

50:44 - @jackiegerstein
Don't need to download an app to use

50:46 - Rhonda
I've seen some creative stuff with Voice Thread

50:51 - Stidmama

50:52 - Peggy George

50:56 - Susie @shighley
similar to remind101?

51:04 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
My students have pesented to teachers in other states three times this year using Skype and Google Hangouts. They love being able to teach the teachers.

51:17 - Kim Caise

I'm working with classes to start having students use Evernote to take notes, pics, webpages, etc.

51:28 - Nathan
most definitely

51:29 - Rhonda
Paula, a well organized path to success

51:43 - @jackiegerstein

Note taking and collaborative with Portfolio management, :) Sisqitman

52:40 - @teachteKBeck(Kristen) #2
Glen, I use evernote notebooks to post all resources for my students. The next step is for my students to start using it to organize themselves. I'm creating a presentation about evernote for a Tech Conference in January, would love your input!

52:40 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
@Rhonda, the teachers love hearing from my students how we use Skype and Google Hangouts to connect, communicate and collaborate with others around the world.

Great links, Peggy

52:59 - Peggy George
@Shamblesguru has lots of great BYOT resources on his site :-) (Shamblesguru’ BYOD/BYOT Resources)

52:59 - Rhonda
Livebinders will continue to lead and work well for Adult Learners and Admin

53:01 - Ruth Nation
That is true! Just using a device doesn't mean there's learning.

53:09 - @SteveHayes_RB60 is a great backchannel tool - free. Students find it very helpful

53:11 - Becki Tharp
Good point, they nknow how to use the tech, but not how to learn from it!

53:17 - @jackiegerstein
Moble Learning with BYOT of resources

53:26 - Rhonda
Point made, Ruth

53:36 - Stidmama
Thanks for the distinction about guiding kids to learn with the tech instead of assuming if they know the tech they learn automatically

53:39 - Peggy George
the new Common Core Standard really promote deeper thinking, higher level thinking skills

53:49 - Rhonda
very true

I never got to try Today's Meet with a class....taught 3rd grade...LOL

53:52 - Joe
Mguhlin has a great byod Evernote, too

54:04 - Rhonda
and what they learn to use it for now could affect what they use it for later

54:06 - @teachteKBeck(Kristen) #2
@Paula, have you had parents participate in your hangouts remotely? I'm thinking of having a parent math day and have a hangout for the parents who cannot attend. I need to show them what is going on in my class because they are complaining that I am not lecturing.

54:13 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
We use Edmodo group as a backchannel when we Skype with another clsss. 4-5 students from each class have the job as backchanneler during our calls.

54:23 - Rhonda
KBeck, :)

54:23 - Kim Caise
with younger students you can have them work in pairs to ease the burden of typing

@joe...I'll check that out!

54:30 - Becki Tharp
Great idea Paula

54:35 - Pervane_Azerbaijan

54:36 - @SteveHayes_RB60
Often students come to the classroom with their tool only as consumers not as creators.

54:48 - Rhonda
New classroom job's :) Paula

54:57 - @teachteKBeck(Kristen) #2
Yes, Steve!

54:58 - Joe
I'm so excited to see a Socratic seminar on Todaysmeet soon. A teacher in my school is looking to try it.

54:58 - Peggy George
Ewan McIntosh is a fantastic educator to follow

Hi dear Nahida m

56:01 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
@Kristen No, not yet. I have been presenting to parents about how I use tech at the monthly PTO meetings. I would love to have parents do a GHO with my class.

56:23 - Rhonda
look for questions or have questions?

56:27 - Joe Dale
Here are some BYOD/BYOT policies via @cybraryman1

56:32 - Kim Caise
GHO - Google hangout

56:35 - @teachteKBeck(Kristen) #2
@Paula, I'm going to try it in January!

56:46 - Tim Clark #2
What app did you use to create this slide? I really like it!

56:52 - Joe Dale

56:54 - Rhonda
I'll have to read that

57:05 - Debbie Boatwright
@plnaugle(Paula Naugle) we just got GAFE and I am trying to grasp hangout. Is hangout part of GAFE?

57:06 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
@Kristen, let us know how it goes.

57:21 - @teachteKBeck(Kristen) #2
Will do!!!

57:21 - Joe Dale

57:32 - Peggy George
Hi Joe Dale!!! So great you could join us today :-) Really looking forward to your iPad presentation in January

57:35 - @teachteKBeck(Kristen) #2
@Debbie it is part of Google +

57:43 - Rhonda
:) Paula

58:19 - Rhonda
so the want is driving the tool

58:21 - Joe Dale
Thanks Peggy!

58:43 - @SteveHayes_RB60
Paper 53 is the app

58:43 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
@Debbie I think GHO can be part of GAFE. It is up to your district as to which apps are turned on. I'm not in a GAFE school, but I use my Google log in to access GHO in my classroom.

58:45 - Debbie Boatwright
I just inherited the dashboard for the district..

58:49 - Dotty
Anyone using Chromebooks?

58:50 - Rhonda
defining failure as learning, big

59:06 - Stidmama
Yes, failure and trying again is also a valuable experience

59:11 - Debbie Boatwright
My principal wants to go Chromebook, I am interested in that too.

59:19 - Rhonda
practice comes from failure

@Dotty - I have 3 teachers piloting them this year

59:32 - Peggy George
love the connection to how very young kids learn anything :-)

59:35 - @SteveHayes_RB60
Failure is OK - we learn from our mistakes

@Dotty - they and their students love them

59:40 - clinds #3
@Dotty - Just ordered the $249 Samsung Chromebook and going to have 2nd graders try it out.

59:45 - Rhonda
how we fail is as important

59:46 - Debbie Boatwright
@sisqitman 3 teachers and students?

59:51 - @teachteKBeck(Kristen) #2
Love Chromebooks - I don't have them, but I am working with a local district that does - training them to use them. We all LOVE them!

1:00:02 - SISQITMAN
@ Dotty - classroom sets...

1:00:05 - Rhonda
what causes the failing, there are so many ways to experience and explore

1:00:28 - Tim Clark #2
We are moving from an Acceptable Use Policy to a Responsible Use Policy in my district - would love suggestions.

1:00:37 - Debbie Boatwright
Kid friendly search engines? not google?

1:00:46 - clinds #3
My one concern is video creation on Chromebooks. I played a little with web-based We Video but not sure that tool is ready for prime time.

1:01:01 - SISQITMAN
Wow...bringing students into the BYOT discussion

1:01:07 - Peggy George
loved the point about how we need to be flexible and realize that things don't always work the way we expect. Just because technology fails from time to time is no reason NOT to use it to support learning :-)

1:01:26 - Tim Clark #2
Hey Debbie, we are concerned about the images that show up with some Google searches.

1:01:48 - Debbie Boatwright
i thought you can set google for kids?

1:01:49 - @jackiegerstein
Let them take their own pics with their own devices for their presentations

1:02:00 - Peggy George
there are some excellent kid-friendly search engines that are really rich but vetted like SweetSearch!

1:02:00 - @SteveHayes_RB60
#BYOTchat "Tool Smackdown" archives

1:02:01 - SISQITMAN
Chromebooks don't do everything well, but they can do an awful lot of great things! Video creation wasn't a big factor for us.

1:02:20 - Stidmama
Seeing a different result than anticipated, and viewing it as opportunity, not failure, is important. Artists often turn an oops into brilliance.

1:02:23 - Tim Clark #2
Yes, I love the photo app Pixlr-o-matic

1:02:34 - Rhonda
I like how Edmodo offers teachers and students a collaborative environment

1:02:49 - Stidmama
Like the art apps!

1:02:52 - SISQITMAN
More slides please

1:03:07 - Dotty
What happens when students get home and don't have all the technology? Most households have video game consoles. Has anyone used them in the classroom.

1:03:08 - Peggy George
it's so exciting when we get to meet our online friends f2f!!! :-)

1:03:11 - Becki Tharp
We love Edmodo too Rhonda!

1:03:15 - Rhonda
:) Peggy

1:03:25 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
@Dotty and @Debbie Boatwright Check with @DCraig42 on Twitter. He is piloting Chromebooks in his 4th grade classroom right now. Also @PeterVogel has been using Chromebooks since they came out.

1:03:27 - Peggy George
I have never met Lorna f2f but we chat every single day in Skype :-)

1:03:33 - Rhonda
:) I'll look to connect

1:03:36 - Jeremy
Here are other slides I have created myself, either in or photos, for conferences or various reasons:

1:03:55 - Ruth Nation
kid friendly htp://

1:04:00 - Rhonda
Agree Peggy, there is great connection in that

1:04:06 - Ruth Nation

1:04:20 - Peggy George
thanks Ruth!!

1:04:31 - Rhonda
I've got that Ruth

1:04:36 - @SteveHayes_RB60
Teachers need to share

1:04:44 - Rhonda
resilience comes from support

1:04:54 - Rhonda
confidence and encouragement

1:05:06 - Debbie Boatwright
Teachers have to do much of this after hours.

1:05:08 - SISQITMAN
Strategic planning for BYOT and the general move to mbile devices, tablets, etc. is important

1:05:10 - Peggy George
that's the power of PBL too--everyone doesn't have to do the same thing at the same time!

1:05:10 - Rhonda
that's learning

1:05:12 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
@Dotty - I am finding that as I use lots of websites with my students, the parents see the value of having a device. Several how didn't have a device at beginning of school have since gotten one.

1:05:25 - @SteveHayes_RB60
#BYOTchat came into exsistence because we didn't have the answers

1:05:27 - Peggy George
I wish we could get rid of the term "expert" :-)

1:05:51 - Debbie Boatwright
When is BYOT chat?

1:05:52 - Peggy George
you'll find lots of resources in our Livebinder today for getting started with BYOT/D

1:05:59 - Peggy George
Thursdays at 9:00pm EST

1:05:59 - SISQITMAN
@Peggy - definitely

1:06:00 - Rhonda
I still haven't found an Expert who thinks they are one

1:06:09 - Inferno
The word "Expert" is great because we can ALL be "Experts"

1:06:10 - Kim Caise

1:06:13 - Jeremy
We've been trying to talk about "specialists" instead of "experts..." I also hate the term "expert" and try to use it very intentionally :)

1:06:19 - Peggy George (BYOT TweetChat)

1:06:43 - Stidmama
This has been a brilliant learning day for me. Thank you for this!

The term expert is the bain of my existence. I'm not teaching if I am not lecturing! How dare I have the students actively participate!

1:07:00 - Peggy George (The BYOTeam)

1:07:06 - Jeremy
Dan Callahan (@DanCallahan; founder of EdCamp) says, "An expert is someone from more than 50 miles away)

1:07:10 - SISQITMAN
Paradigm shifting is the thing that takes time....seems we can't keep up with the rapid change with growing paradigm shifts

1:07:12 - Rhonda
that is great to hear Stidmama, teachers appreciate being acknowledged for their effort

1:07:20 - Inferno
I have students become "experts" on a question or topic and then share with the other "Experts" in the room. Everyone is/can be an "expert" on something.

1:07:42 - Peggy George
we are so lucky to have this team sharing with us today because all of them are implementing BYOT and have created fantastic resources on their sites. They are all in the Livebinder :-)

1:07:46 - Rhonda
Sisqitman, I've got some idea's and thoughts about that I look forward to exploring

1:07:57 - Debbie Boatwright
Do you share your approach to getting the infrastructure preparation?

1:08:09 - Vernon
What suggestion do you have for starting a BYOT at my school?

1:08:10 - Rhonda

Here is the video from a BYOT Tour in my district

1:09:47 - Tim Clark #2
We are identifying businesses throughout our district that will allow students in to work if they do not have Internet at home.

1:09:51 - Jeremy
Vernon: I would start by checking out the archives from some of our earliest chats on

1:10:03 - Dotty
I think everyone has access to cable, Dish network and satellite networks. How are these being used?

1:10:06 - Peggy George
excellent point! survey your own students to find out exactly what they have :-)

1:10:30 - Tim Clark #2
We also are working with Comcast Internet Essentials for low cost Internet for families on free and reduced lunch.

1:10:37 - SISQITMAN
Yes...each community has different populations. Surveys are needed.

1:10:48 - Peggy George
we assume they won't have access but there are many ways to get it through libraries, collaborating with other students, etc.

1:11:02 - SISQITMAN
Grant writers love community partnerships

1:11:07 - Rhonda
Modeling is great advice

1:11:12 - Tim Clark #2
Answers about our infrastructure, Debbie, are located at

1:11:14 - Rhonda
Gotta run, Great Job, Thank You

1:11:14 - Debbie Boatwright
Doesn't this need to be a district driven goal due to infrastructure needs to support?

1:11:22 - Vernon
Thanks Jeremy...I will

1:11:31 - Peggy George
you can hear lots more from our team on the Teachercast podcast in the Livebinder today: (Teachercast podcast with #BYOTchat Team-June 19, 2012)

1:11:55 - Peggy George
raise your hand if you want to take the mic to speak

1:12:10 - Janet Dee
Outstanding information today. Thx byotchat team.

1:12:17 - SISQITMAN
@Debbie - contribute to that push in your district. Don't wait for the district to create it.

1:12:39 - Susie @shighley
I think a lot of the lack of sharing at school is due to lack of time. But, w hen I"m at home, there's lots of time to share

1:12:44 - SISQITMAN
Yes, transformative change takes time.

1:12:45 - Becki Tharp
I get resistance when I share 1 tool!

1:12:46 - Peggy George
love that point! doesn't have to be transformative on day one!!!

1:12:49 - @SteveHayes_RB60
Janet Dee - It's great to have a #BYOTchat person here today - thank you for joining us!

1:12:57 - Peggy George
don't get discouraged @Becki!!

1:13:06 - Debbie Boatwright
@sisqitman trying to.. but we need commercial grade wireless..

1:13:16 - Becki Tharp
Thank you Peggy!:)

1:13:19 - Tim Clark #2
It's an on-going cyclical process as devices change - literacy - adapting - transforming

1:13:29 - SISQITMAN
@Debbie - I hear ya'

1:13:32 - Peggy George
Lorie-go ahead :-)

1:13:47 - Peggy George
I don't want this to end! Such exciting things to think about!

1:13:53 - Debbie Boatwright
Anyone know of $$ grants that help schools get wired right?

1:13:55 - Ruth Nation
Awesome presentation:) Thanks so much for all the resources

1:14:06 - Peggy George
we'll do a few more questions and then officially close out the show :-)

1:14:08 - Becki Tharp
Willing to learn is key!

1:14:14 - SISQITMAN
ahh...learning communities - thanks for saying that!

1:15:22 - Stidmama
I also have to leave, thanks again for this session.

1:15:29 - Susie @shighley
Thanks so much. Have to run. All 3 of my alma maters playing BBall this afternoon

1:15:31 - Peggy George
love that! not ok to hoard the devices :-)

So thrilled to have the #BYOTchat team with us today!!! Be sure to follow them and join in the weekly chats!

1:18:19 - Kim Caise
off task behavior happens in non-tech lessons too. procedures and rules in place help alleviate some of those concerns

1:18:24 - Peggy George
teachers who have good classroom management skills will have no problems managing mobile devices in the classroom!

1:18:34 - Peggy George
exactly @Kim!!

1:18:42 - Becki Tharp
Love that quote!

1:18:58 - Peggy George
that is a profound quote!

1:19:03 - Tim Clark #2
I'm more concerned about bored, disengaged students during a lecture-driven, textbook-oriented classroom.

1:19:12 - Kim Caise
students dont want to lose the privilege of using technology so they usually don't want to do anything to jeopardize those opportunities

1:19:24 - Peggy George
I agree @Tim!!!

1:19:31 - Debbie Boatwright
Here here I agree

1:19:32 - Tim Clark #2
That is a really good point, Kim!

1:20:01 - Peggy George
behavior is much more likely to be on task if students are engaged and actively participating in choices related to their own learning!

1:20:07 - Corinthia Elliott
good question

1:20:10 - Joe
Tim and Kim, yes! Good points!

1:20:53 - Lorie Moffat
That's all I have.

1:21:20 - Peggy George
it's so hard to stop this conversation!!! But we really want to respect your time and the time of our presenters so we'll officially close. :-)

1:21:38 - Becki Tharp
Great session today!! Thank you all so much!

1:21:41 - Jeremy
Michelle Luhtatla (@mluhtala) and I have a saying: Let the learning distract from the tools, don't let the tools distract from the learning. It's a classroom management issue, not a tech issue.

1:21:49 - @SteveHayes_RB60

1:21:59 - Peggy George
I'll add all of the links you have shared to our Livebinder after the show.
