03:11 - Roxanne Clement
Love my panel on the side to see the chat!

03:24 - Peggy George
This is going to be a fantastic session! Julie is doing so many great things with her students to engage them in writing!

03:26 - Carolyn Stanley
You ladies of Classroom 2.0 are so WONDERFUL! Thank you for such a wonderful opportunity to learn, share, and connect.

03:30 - Oronoque
Good day everyone

Excited to here and learn from Julie.

04:48 - McTeach (Karen)
Phew! made it!

04:49 - Matt
I'm not seeing my Whiteboard Tools.

04:51 - Peggy George

04:59 - Peggy George
tools should be there now

05:00 - Oronoque
Hey Shambles

05:02 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Hi @McTeach.

Good Morning Paula and McTeach!

05:53 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Good morning, Kristen.

06:08 - McTeach (Karen)
Good morning, Kristen!

06:17 - Maureen@bcdtech
Hi Paula... Finally got the new system to work... have to have my headset on, otherwise it throws an error.

06:25 - Peggy George
Hi McTeach!!! So thrilled you are here!! We want you to take the mic during the Q/A

06:29 - @shamblesguru
eduflections ...

07:03 - Peggy George
we do a new livebinder for each month so they don't get too large!

07:05 - Peggy George

07:22 - Peggy George
all set Lorna!

07:30 - Dotty Myers
Good morningall, we are having springlike weather.

07:36 - Carolyn Stanley

10:04 - Peggy George
very true @zmidler!!!!

10:12 - SusanSi
amen, zmidler!

10:17 - Peggy George
what a fabulous audience for you Julie!!!

10:25 - Roxanne Clement
love the rating continuum

10:34 - Peggy George
me too @Roxanne!

11:02 - McTeach (Karen)
How about "not yet"

11:06 - Peggy George
wait till you see Julie's voicethread :-)

11:12 - Peggy George
not yet works too!

11:13 - @teachteKBeck(KristenB)
Will be creating my first one this weekend for my students to use next week!!

11:35 - Peggy George
Voicethreads are really easy and have so many possible uses

11:40 - @shamblesguru
Only in the winter

11:52 - Peggy George
I've viewed many Storyjumpers but never created one

11:57 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Yes, I've used VT. Didn't get to vote.

12:02 - Peggy George
look at that!!!! :-)

12:09 - Carolyn Stanley
I am not familiar with it at all.

12:18 - Roxanne Clement
excited to hear about a new tool for me:)

12:23 - Peggy George
Julie has a great Storyjumper example for you

12:26 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Love learning about new tools.

12:44 - Peggy George all of her links for today are in the Livebinder

12:50 - Kim Caise
yeah, another NBCT!

13:18 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
TOY congrats, ulie.

13:18 - Roxanne Clement
yay Julie! good luck!

13:21 - Peggy George
I don't know how a full time classroom teacher finds time to write a book but I'm sure glad Julie did!!!

13:26 - Carolyn Stanley
There is a teacher in CT whose kids skip lunch to use Skype to connect with local experts.

13:28 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Oops, meant Julie.

13:31 - @shamblesguru

13:35 - Peggy George
Congrats Julie!!! Hope you go all the way to the top!!

13:47 - Peggy George
hearing you great Julie!

13:48 - Lorna Costantini
yes we can

13:49 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Virtual applause for Julie.

13:59 - Carolyn Stanley
Good, Morning, Julie! - actually good afternoon here in CT

14:04 - Peggy George
it's a chilly day in AZ!!

14:26 - Carolyn Stanley
To facilitate the learning

14:43 - Peggy George
this is such an important point that we need to keep reminding ourselves! it's not about the technology but the content!!

14:51 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Tech shouldn't be viewed as an add-on, but should be part of every lesson.

15:00 - Peggy George
I love the title of her book!!! How fun that it came from her students!!

15:21 - Peggy George
Julie's blog:

15:31 - zmidler 1
Augement and enhance the learning process and empower student voice. It's not about the tool--it's about the process.

15:43 - stidmama
had that experience yesterday in the middle school I subbed in...

15:52 - Peggy George
I remember seeing many of those faces when I was teaching!!! "I can't think of anything to write about" :-(

16:34 - Carolyn Stanley
Did anyone see the Food Network "Chopped" with the local school cafeteria "chefs" - the winner lives in a similar community -packs backpacks with food so kids will have something to eat over the weekend -inspiring show.

16:45 - Dotty Myers
I keep intercetping notes that are well written, but when it comes to assignments students get a blank.

16:48 - Kim Caise
'write' peggy? (pun intended)

16:54 - Peggy George
no I didn't see that Carolyn! Sounds amazing!!

17:03 - Peggy George
that's so funny Dotty!

17:11 - Kim Caise
yes i saw that carolyn

17:12 - Peggy George
they use writing when it serves their purpose!

17:47 - stidmama
such a good point, it's about communicating, and when we bring that to their attention they are much more engaged

17:50 - Carolyn Stanley
Kids are so creative - not constrained the way so many of us adults are.

18:15 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
No, Carolyn I didn't see that show, but needs to happen in my district too,

18:17 - Peggy George
I was so impressed when my 9 yr old granddaughter took the time to write ALL of the words to a song to give to me--it took her about 3 hours and she was so proud of it!! She really wants to be a writer!

18:40 - stidmama
good for her, peggy! what a lovely gift

19:10 - Peggy George
that's your point too Dotty! when they have a purpose to write that means something to them they will write!

19:16 - Carolyn Stanley
That is where so many systems that are heavily curriculum based lose out -don't make that connection to making learning relevant to real-life situations.

19:26 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
@Peggy, I don't teach keyboarding because of time, but kids will learn to type because they want to write.

19:28 - Peggy George

19:41 - Peggy George
absolutely @Paula!!! great point!

20:00 - Dotty Myers
I keep getting written up for using technology and my IPAD2 as I walk around the classroom. I work with ELL's mainly.

20:10 - Peggy George
how sad @Dotty!!!!

20:15 - @lemoinemb MB Lemoine
Sorry I am late.

20:18 - Carolyn Stanley
@plnagle-my son - now an adult- never took a formal typing course, but he types accurately and faster than I do - been in chat and games since he was 12.

20:24 - Peggy George
Hi @lemoinemb!! welcome!

20:29 - McTeach (Karen)

20:30 - @lemoinemb MB Lemoine
Hey Peggy.

20:46 - Peggy George
that is such a powerful story!!

21:03 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
@Carolyn, I had formal typing, but I'm so slow.

21:17 - @shamblesguru
"Why ... in the world"

21:21 - Oronoque
for world mir

21:23 - Dotty Myers
I love how our students can be truly global.

21:37 - Peggy George
really key point!! we need to do less telling and more listening!! :-)

21:41 - Carolyn Stanley
What is really upsetting is that so many of these kids passions never get revealed to their teachers - because there is "no time" -

21:42 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
@Julie, that is a great way to get students to understand why they are learning.

21:48 - Peggy George

22:00 - Carolyn Stanley
This is so great!

22:16 - Peggy George
wow! so many challenges but such an incredible project!

22:38 - Peggy George

22:38 - zmidler 1
The other day I worked with 1st graders & helped them create their own "Wh" questions for a research effort. I was amazed by how many "Wh" questions they came up with & how well they used their Qs to guide their research.

22:52 - Carolyn Stanley
I would love to be able to find a collaboration like this for 7th and/or 8th graders.

23:12 - Peggy George
This link may start playing a video when you go to it so get ready to click on pause :-)

23:15 - Susie @shighley
It looks like your collaborators from Indiana probably live near me.

23:18 - McTeach (Karen)
Carolyn...then let's do it!

23:24 - Peggy George
Hi Susie! Great to see you!

23:26 - Oronoque
I love wikispaces because you can print your wiki as a pdf...make a book collaboratively

23:40 - Susie @shighley
I let the time get away from me and joined in late

23:42 - Peggy George
I love wikispaces too!!

23:56 - Sheri Edwards
i teach 7/8

24:02 - Peggy George
I love that you can embed Glogs on the home page to provide a great visual organizer for the site

24:14 - Carolyn Stanley
@McTeach - can you help me! I have to also get at least one of my content teachers involved since I have no classes of my own, except for computer club kids.

24:26 - Peggy George
look at those creative avatars the kids are using!

24:31 - SusanSi
what do you do about the email option?

24:41 - Susie @shighley
My district blocks wikispaces, but they have unblocked some for me, wiki by wiki. I asked them just to unblock the whole domain. No luck yet, but I keep sending them addresses!

24:46 - Patti R
@McTeach I run into that same problem not being a content area teacher only the "tech" teacher

24:47 - McTeach (Karen)
Carolyn...I would love to!

24:51 - Oronoque
I'm an avatar too ;)

24:58 - Peggy George
she'll answer your questions later :-) Kim will capture them from the chat

25:29 - @shamblesguru
If they are driving .. do you have a highway code?

25:40 - McTeach (Karen) are not ONLY the tech teacher. You ARE the TECH teacher! You rock!

25:48 - Susie @shighley

25:57 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
You could also set up collaborative groups in Edmodo. Create a group and share the code with anyone you want to be part of the collaboartion. Very safe and secure for elem aged students.

26:03 - zmidler 1
My Safe Searching Glog is embedded in the LMCWiki as a portal to access dbases and Pathfinders. Kids call it the "candy jar"--all the good stuff is is one place

26:10 - Peggy George
too funny @shamblesguru!!

26:13 - Carolyn Stanley
@McTeach -direct message me on twitter at cstanley, and let's see what we can make happen. I'd be so thrilled. Getting some of our kids connected outside the school walls is one of my goals before I retire in June 2012.

26:43 - Sheri Edwards
@plnaugle Edmodo is a great idea as is collaborative classroom

26:48 - Peggy George
I love Moodle for all of these things! So easy to embed things on it and to share/comment on other additions

27:06 - Peggy George
Yes Edmodo is a fantastic, safe place for students to collaborate

27:25 - kg
Could Edmodo be a reasonable alternative for this size group, instead of Moodle (if we don't have access to Moodle)?

27:42 - Peggy George
@zmidler thanks a lot for sharing your link!!

27:44 - zmidler 1
You can also enable comments on Google Sites and it becomes a Wiki-like spot for students to collaborate.

27:50 - @teachteKBeck(KristenB)
@paula, Edmodo would be a good alternative for those of us not able to use Moodle!

27:54 - Peggy George
I'll add any of the links shared in the chat today to our Livebinder after the show

27:58 - Paul Webster
I love moodle but I don't think multiple students can simultaneously edit wikis there. I like google docs for this.

28:01 - Maureen@bcdtech
We used edmodo for the AWL flatclassroom project- over 500 kids. Easy to manage

28:05 - @shamblesguru
Should the presenter "Follow Sldes" be clicked?

28:14 - McTeach (Karen)
@Carolyn...will do!

28:25 - Peggy George
I love the name of coast to coast chronicles :-)

28:35 - Roxanne Clement
google Docs would be great, especially if you have Google Apps for Education for younger students

28:35 - Peggy George
talk about engaged students!!!

28:38 - Peggy George

28:42 - Sheri Edwards
Would Google Sites work?

28:52 - @teachteKBeck(KristenB)
Hey Paula, Skype is still blocked at my school, but perhaps you and I could get our math students together and create a real life math wiki and work to make math real for themselves and other students!

28:55 - @shamblesguru
nice pic

29:24 - Peggy George
Julie has so many great stories to share!!!

29:30 - kg
@Maureen...thanks for the info on size of group :)

29:36 - stidmama
skype is great, and facetime works well for folks with macs/ipads I used it to call home when I took a trip in October

30:13 - Peggy George
@Paul you really can't have multiple people editing a wiki at the same time! that's one of the drawbacks!

30:15 - stidmama
love the career connection idea, it's hard for some kids to make that leap by themselves

30:26 - zmidler 1
@sheri edwards--yes, Google Sites works for commenting. Nearly all my pages have comments enabled to promote conversation.

31:06 - Kim Caise
this page has all kinds of resources for free and paid resources to meet online for web conferencing to connect online from a wiki i created

31:10 - clinds
Starting ePortfolio with Google sites (Google Apps for Ed) next week with 3rd graders. Can't wait to see how they do!

31:47 - Peggy George
that's a great idea @clinds!!! Google sites is such a great way to do eportfolios

31:55 - Sheri Edwards
@clinds would love to see what you are doing with eportfolios -- that's on my list for this year in Google

32:14 - Kim Caise
that is a great way to keep the focus on the content and not on the technology!

32:24 - Lorna Costantini
Yes I hope you share @clinds as you proceed

32:34 - kg
love the use of wallwisher to start the intial thinking...good reference point as time goes on, too.

32:37 - clinds
@Peggy - I love how Google sites has commenting on all the pages now so students an have comments on their portfolio pieces.

32:48 - Sheri Edwards
@clinds are you blogging about it?

33:08 - Kim Caise
i keep lists of similar web tools in evernote

33:09 - Peggy George
notice how they identify themselves on the Wallwisher--can be somewhat anonymous if they choose or at least they may not be using their real names

33:17 - Roxanne Clement
Kg, I use it all the time to startup projects, check ofr understanding and evaluate!

33:19 - kg
@Peggy...I too love that commenting feature. Really makes peer editing not be doing FOR a peer, but adding constructive input

33:23 - clinds
@Sheri - no but that's a good idea. I started a blog but not good at keeping up with it!

33:24 - Kim Caise
such as stixy and for wallwisher type tools

33:26 - @shamblesguru

33:27 - Peggy George
I agree @clinds!! the commenting feature on Google sites works so well!

33:48 - Peggy George
thanks @Shambles!! you have a lot of great wallwisher links on your site!

34:12 - kg
@Roxanne, super...I find that I have to guide them back to it periodically, to re-check where we are.

34:12 - stidmama
thanks for the link, shambles -- and for putting the tutorial at the top of the page!

35:01 - Peggy George
you can find lots of people to connect with on Skype here:

35:30 - clinds
Love, love that the students are driving the learning!

35:31 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
@Kristen would love to connect our classes. Can you use Edmodo?

35:47 - Roxanne Clement
So terrific to evalove a project based on their interests!

35:53 - Peggy George place to find authors to skype with

35:55 - Sheri Edwards
all 300 on one wallwisher?

36:02 - Kim Caise
paula is a great person to partner with in edmodo!

36:34 - @teachteKBeck(KristenB)
@Paula, yes, I need to get my kiddos back on but I think that would be the best tool for us to use!!

36:37 - Kim Caise
each teacher has a different wall wisher

36:41 - Roxanne Clement
Love the title!

36:45 - Peggy George
here comes Storyjumper :-)

37:06 - @teachteKBeck(KristenB)
@Paula, I think it would really help my pre-algebra kiddos to work with younger kids like your kiddos!

37:06 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
I have several collabortive groups in Edmodo -Skype Collaboration, Reading, PD Sandbox, etc.

37:48 - Peggy George
another great tool like Wallwisher that I really like is Linoit.

37:54 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Okay, @Kristen I'll send you the code for a collaborative math group.

37:59 - Peggy George
I love this project!!!

38:19 - @shamblesguru
Listen to the enthusiasm ... the content is a bonus ;-)

38:30 - Patti R
can the storyjumper project be embedded in a blog or wiki

38:30 - Peggy George
:-) for sure @Shambles

38:38 - @teachteKBeck(KristenB)
@thanks Paula!

38:48 - Peggy George
yes Storyjumper can be embedded

39:01 - Kim Caise
think of all the language arts and math standards that were met

39:08 - @shamblesguru
Listening to passionate teachers is a real pleasure

39:17 - Roxanne Clement
But this project is immersed in's real application of skills learned

39:18 - Kim Caise
including science and possibly social studies

39:21 - Sheri Edwards
project based learning

39:28 - Peggy George

39:29 - Patti R
did julie say how many students she has in her class

39:33 - Kim Caise
absolutely sheri

39:39 - Maureen@bcdtech
I just tried out Zooburst with 3rd graders work. It was fun. Now my 4th graders want to try it

39:40 - Peggy George
that is so impressive!!! students doing the driving!

39:42 - zmidler 1
"Just went with it!" That's the hardest part for some teachers--to release control & accept that the process will morph & the time line may shift.

39:58 - Peggy George
seeing it now Julie!!! woo hoo!

40:04 - Roxanne Clement
We need to become the facilitators of learning

40:16 - Roxanne Clement
Love it!

40:27 - Peggy George
yes we can see it and we'll have to hear the sound later in our own browsers :-)

40:34 - Tom Krawczewicz
@zmidler 1 and it always goes in unexpected and (usually!) positive places

40:34 - Sheri Edwards
teachers are afraid of "Just went with it" because of the requirements of curriculum and scores

40:37 - Peggy George
you get a direct URL for your book

40:41 - @lemoinemb MB Lemoine
Adorable Julie.

40:46 - Peggy George

40:50 - @lemoinemb MB Lemoine
Do they each have hard copies?

40:54 - Peggy George
that is amazing Julie!!

41:15 - Kim Caise
wonder if there is a resource that would send a free hardcover copy

41:15 - Sheri Edwards

41:15 - Peggy George
wouldn't that make an awesome Christmas present or birthday present????

41:21 - @lemoinemb MB Lemoine

41:33 - stidmama
this is completely wonderful!

41:55 - Kim Caise
i believe on lulu you can set the price for the hardcover copies

41:59 - Sheri Edwards
Julie has "occupied her classroom" ;)

42:17 - Peggy George
We should do a whole session on Storyjumper!! What a fantastic tool!

42:26 - Kim Caise
absolutely peggy

42:38 - zmidler 1
Mixbook is a lot like Storyjumper sans audio-- liking Storyjumper!

43:26 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
@Peggy, maybe we should have a session where we share how we use Storybird, StoryJumper, Mixbook, etc.

43:52 - Maureen@bcdtech
Simple Booklet is also super fast easy way to create a flip book. Or Myebook... There are now so many ways to share what the kids are learning and doing.

43:56 - Kim Caise
like you said it is so much more powerful when a student points out the editing errors than whena a teacher does

44:37 - zmidler 1
@Peggy--a session on publising & publishig tools--Publish, Publish, Pubish!

44:37 - Peggy George
@Paula-I love that idea! We just need to find teachers willing to take the mic to share :-)

45:07 - Patti R
@zmidler that is a terrific topic but probably would need more than one session

45:08 - Kim Caise
that's right maureen - simple booklet is a great resource!

45:08 - Peggy George
yes @zmidler!!! session on publishing and tools!! be sure to add those suggestioins to the survey after the show today!!

45:23 - Kim Caise
publishing tools would be a great topic!

45:43 - Peggy George
kids always love the choose your own adventure stories!

46:08 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Okay, @Kirsten and anyone else who is interested - just created an Edmodo group called Math in Our Lives for 3-8 grade collaboration. The code to oin is ye0hqe.

46:23 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Oops, join not oin.

46:35 - Peggy George
you're an awesome multitasker @Paula!!! So glad you created the Edmodo group!!!

46:53 - @lemoinemb MB Lemoine
Love Voicethread.

47:00 - Peggy George

47:02 - zmidler 1
I am very curious about the grading or assessment for this type of process. Are you using writing rubrics and Web2.0 tool rubrics?

47:06 - @shamblesguru
Student publishing tools

You'll have to listen to this voicethread in your browser

Teaching/allowing kids to make choices is such a powerful learning experience for the kids

50:03 - Peggy George
this is such a great example of a powerful way to use Voicethread!! goes so far beyond just posting images--lots of great thinking!

50:05 - Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr)
I'm getting some GREAT ideas for our 3rd grade Lunchtime Writer's CLub!

50:18 - Carolyn Stanley
@Julie - you are an inspiration! I'm lucky if I get to school five minutes before the kids.

50:27 - Carolyn Stanley
But I do stay late.

50:30 - @shamblesguru
Their gradchildren will be able to listen .....

50:33 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Just made Aimee and Patti co-teachers.

50:37 - @shamblesguru
now that will be weird

50:40 - Kim Caise
good point shambles

50:44 - Peggy George
if you click on the link in the Livebinder for her Voicethread you can play it right there :-)

50:53 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
@Susan, great to have you onboard too.

Hi Peggy! I have my cooperating teacher here also

51:47 - Peggy George
wow Scott! Thanks so much for inviting your cooperating teacher!

52:34 - Peggy George
very easy to get sucked into it!! I've watched the entire hour and it's so impressive to hear their comments!

52:41 - clinds
This is awesome! I'm doing PD on wikis and Voicethread this week and now have great real classroom examples.

53:37 - Kim Caise
'real' teaching meets those state standards

53:42 - Peggy George
this is often the concern for teachers!! how can we spend the time to allow the creative exploration!

53:44 - Scott Shelhart (@kd9sr)
Voicethread is a great tool. My students like to make their own artwork and make talking picture books

54:12 - Patti R
I like that idea of not doing "about" presentations

54:14 - clinds
Has anyone used the iPad app for Voicethread. Just wondering how it works and if all the features are there.

54:27 - Peggy George
I have used the Voicethread app on my iphone!

54:42 - Susie @shighley
until this week, right?

54:52 - Peggy George
I love that I can access all of the Voicethreads I have subscribed to through the app.

55:26 - clinds
@Peggy - So you can do everything via the Voicethread app?

55:30 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
@clinds Read this post by Wes Fryer, great info about VT on iPads

55:40 - @shamblesguru
Have snakes here (in my YouTube Channel) ... no snow ...

56:56 - Peggy George
these stories really bring this kind of engaged learning to life!!! love these examples!

57:20 - Peggy George
I can't wait to view the links you're all sharing today! Thank you!

57:21 - Kim Caise
it would be great for students to use tux paint to accompany their writing compositions

57:23 - @teachteKBeck(KristenB)
Julie is there a kindle version of your book??

57:23 - Sheri Edwards
My students are creating projects for their peers to do -- on their own and bringing to me to share with other classes; did a Veterans Day project this way;

57:34 - zmidler 1
We did a huge collaborative poetry, art, and foriegn lang. VT last year that involved 100 1st grade students, 80 MS students, Spanish elective students, and @grade1 students in Canada-- (sorry about the long URL).

57:35 - McTeach (Karen)
No, no...keep going!!

57:43 - @shamblesguru

57:46 - @teachteKBeck(KristenB)
I agree with McTeach!!

57:51 - Patti R
i love that Julie has this flexibility, i am locked into 45 min a week with my tech classes and between scheduling all the specials our teachers live by the cliock, esp 5-8

58:18 - Sheri Edwards
how do you save the presentation?

58:22 - Peggy George
most of Julie's resources on on this site she created:

58:29 - Carolyn Stanley
This has been such an inspiring show - thanks so much- I never got further than creaming my butter and sugars - will definitely have to listen to the recording.

58:30 - Maureen@bcdtech
@PattiR I have the same issue.. get the kids twice a week and that's in a good week

58:33 - @teachteKBeck(KristenB)
I'm going to start hanging with my students during lunch instead of the negative staff room!!

58:44 - Kim Caise
file, save the whiteboard, save the group as a pdf

58:49 - Peggy George
you can save these slides as a PDF

59:00 - Peggy George
we'll post the entire recording after the show on our blog

59:05 - Carolyn Stanley
How long do you get for lunch?

59:06 - McTeach (Karen)
@Kristen...I never go to the faculty room for lunch. I stay with my kids!

59:10 - Kim Caise
many of the resources are in the livebinder as well

59:14 - Carolyn Stanley
We barely get 20 minutes.

59:23 - Peggy George Recording and links will be posted here

59:25 - Sheri Edwards
Opened a bitsrips account and the kids learned it all themselves; they will teach me now; they are writing up their own requirements for other comics based on our learning

59:50 - @teachteKBeck(KristenB)
@McTeach, I keep trying, but I am done, the only reason I still teach is because of the kids, so I will hang with them!!

59:51 - Peggy George
almost time for Q/A :-) sorry we're running late but I hope you can stay!!!

59:55 - Roxanne Clement #2
love Kidblog!

59:59 - Kim Caise
all resources shared from julie and others are posted on the archives pagae shared by peggy

59:59 - Susie @shighley
This has been a wonderful session full of so many great examples. I wish more students could experience classrooms like this.

1:00:03 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
@sheri Is bitstrips free?

1:00:08 - Kim Caise
including our recording links

1:00:13 - Maureen@bcdtech
@Sheri I have my kids use toondoospaces- they love it. Comic Life is another favorite, since they getto use their own pictures easily

1:00:13 - Peggy George
Get ready McTeach :-) Really want you to take the mic to share your stories from this week!

1:00:19 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Love that I have my 4th graders blogging

1:00:24 - McTeach (Karen)!!

1:00:29 - Patti R
i feel so strongly about the power of blogging across the curriculum, trying to convince my teachers is another matter

1:00:40 - Kim Caise
in the post show we would love for mcteach to share her activitity

1:00:53 - aimeevt
My 3rd grader's blog and they love it!

1:01:02 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
I just did a presentation where I had the participants do @McTeach paper blogging activity. They loved it.

1:01:04 - Patti R
I start blogs in 3rd grade too

1:01:07 - Carolyn Stanley
One of my science teachers used Posterous with his kids to blog during our trip to the CT Science Museum.

1:01:13 - Peggy George
Welcome Terry Friedlander! Thrilled to have you with us!

1:01:27 - clinds
Love Kidblog but wish there was a way for student to continue their blog from year to year. Am I right that they can't be transfered to another teacher?

1:01:55 - Oronoque
students are tougher grader than teachers :)

1:01:57 - Peggy George
this is really helpful to see this rubric created by students!

1:02:35 - Carolyn Stanley
I am sooooo sharing this resource with my teachers -still applicable in a 7th or 8th grade class.

1:02:43 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
@clinds Yes is great platform but need to have a way to continue.

1:02:45 - Peggy George
out of the mouths of babes :-)

1:02:47 - Maureen@bcdtech
Do they do any kind of foramtive assessment within groups as they work together? Looking for ways to make it easier and feel safer for kids to collaborate and help each other as they go.

1:02:47 - zmidler 1
It's about ownership--once you give them ownership their expectations are very high. It's the same thing when you tell them you will publish their work to the world-- a huge carrot.

1:03:05 - Peggy George
that's how you know what they're hearing when teachers talk to them--they repeat the words of wisdom :-)

1:03:07 - Kim Caise
agreed @zmidler

1:03:37 - Carolyn Stanley
Wow! I want to be in your class Julie.'

1:03:43 - Matt
@ Julie: How does the student assessment piece work for the younger (3rd grade) students?

1:04:06 - Sheri Edwards
How can you save this presentation as pdf? Don't have an option that I can see

1:04:11 - Peggy George
her book is incredible!!!

1:04:12 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
I just started following you, Julie on Twitter.

1:04:13 - @lemoinemb MB Lemoine
What great ideas!!!

1:04:27 - Carolyn Stanley
I am going to get our media specialist to order this for us.

1:04:28 - Peggy George

1:04:31 - Patti R
did i miss this because i was she completely self contained and how many students in the class? on average

1:04:40 - Kim Caise
file save whiteboard all pages pdf format and name the form

1:04:44 - zmidler 1
I tell students that our goal with any project we publish is to have another teacher or teacher-librarian in another school show their work as an example of what they want their students to accomplish or surpass.

1:05:00 - Peggy George
if you missed anything or have to leave early we have it all in the recording

1:05:09 - SusanSi
Thanks so much for your passionate session-I am inspired!

My K12 Online Conference with Jan Wells will debut on the morning of December 9.

1:06:05 - stidmama
This has been incredibly inspirational and motivating for me -- between sub jobs I continue to volunteer at my local K-8 school in various classrooms. I have a couple teachers I volunteer for who would really love the ideas!

1:06:07 - Dotty Myers
I wish I could get my school to do this. Sounds like it is engaging for students.

1:06:10 - Peggy George
Steve Hargadon always has such interesting interviews with awesome educators and authors!

1:10:01 - Peggy George
Julie didn't get to mention this today but these are resources on her wiki: Kid Blog is a great place for students to reflect and teachers can read posts and comments before they are published. A great lesson on teaching students how to blog can be found at Notes From McTeach.

Your book isn't on Kindle yet :(

1:15:09 - Peggy George

1:15:13 - JulieDRamsay #2
Try Linoit instead of Wallwisher

1:15:32 - Carolyn Stanley
@Julie - yes - will try that this year

1:15:35 - Peggy George
just click on the talk button McTeach

1:15:39 - McTeach (Karen)
Having issues...

1:15:41 - JulieDRamsay #2
Very similar but we haven't had the problems we've had wallwisher

1:15:42 - SusanSi
what about the email feature on Wikispaces-

1:15:49 - Peggy George
looks like you need to run audio setup wizard

1:15:53 - Maureen@bcdtech
@carolyn I gave up on Wallwisher and use linoit.. same sort of thing- but it has never had the issues I encountered with wallwisher

1:16:00 - McTeach (Karen)
Drat! Just did that last week

1:16:02 - Peggy George
go ahead Kim while she works on her audio

1:16:06 - McTeach (Karen) right back...

1:16:22 - Peggy George
I agree @Maureen! I always use Linoit too

1:16:45 - SusanSi

1:17:14 - SusanSi
my students found it and I didn't want them to

1:17:34 - Peggy George
@Julie is there a favorite tool your students use for writing in the class? They have so many choices :-)

1:17:39 - Carolyn Stanley
@Maureen and Julie - as I said, I don't have a class of my own, so I tried introducing teachers to wall wisher by having them add an individual holiday greeting to the staff- I got about 21 responses,but many got frustrated. I'll try linoit this year.

1:17:46 - Peggy George
think she was asking about signing up with email

1:17:52 - Patti R
I was told by wikispaces that you can only disable that if you have private label

1:18:07 - Carolyn Stanley
Does linoit work on iPad, or is it Flash based?

1:18:16 - Patti R
since I set up the student accounts I disable those choices in setup and never mention it

1:18:18 - Peggy George
not sure Carolyn

1:18:24 - Terry Friedlander /PicLits
Hi. Sorry I was off an hour. Hello to Julie from Piclits team. Check our site for writing !!!! Thanks !!!!!:)

1:18:29 - Oronoque
When using Voice Thread do you have one account that you then give the students access to, or does each student have an account?

1:19:05 - Sheri Edwards
PicLits ! Love it.

1:19:21 - SusanSi

1:19:26 - Peggy George
yes!! just checked and there is an iphone app for Linoit--it's called Lino-Online Stickies

1:19:44 - Terry Friedlander /PicLits

1:19:47 - Maureen@bcdtech
I have separate accounts for each student. You may run into trouble if you use a shared account, since if you allow editing, you also allow them to be deleted.

1:19:57 - Carolyn Stanley
I did a PicLit a couple of years ago -but I couldn't get my English teachers onboard.

1:20:03 - Peggy George
@Terry-do you have a headset? you could share how PicLits is used for writing :-) at least a really quick summary

1:20:11 - Patti R
yes i do the identities on voicethread

1:20:13 - Carolyn Stanley
I'll try again. Thanks for the reminder.

1:20:20 - Maureen@bcdtech
I have had really good luck with Photon app on the ipad. You can even play flash games

Carolyn --- I can help your colleagues ( )

1:21:18 - Peggy George
@McTeach-were you able to get your mic working?

1:21:19 - Patti R
i use their blog avatars for their identities

1:21:22 - Maureen@bcdtech
@Carolyn I have the same types of issues with getting classroom teachers on board. They are so busy with content that they won't take the time to learn or even allow the kids to use some of the tech available

1:21:23 - zmidler 1
We ponied up and paid for the Edu Pro acct. $89 for a year so we could monitor/moderate messages--turned out to be a very worthwhile investment.

1:21:31 - McTeach (Karen)
Peggy...I believe so.

1:21:36 - Roxanne Clement #2
We alwyas grab images that match the theme of the voicethread

1:22:06 - McTeach (Karen)
I think it's working

1:22:13 - Peggy George
Voicethread has really added some great new features--like the voiceover that extends beyond a single slide

1:22:17 - Carolyn Stanley
@Terri - thanks, I'll be in touch.

Julie: I have just gone online to Stenhouse, to get a copy of your book. And I have ordered it for my preservice teachers for both of my Lit&Tech classes for spring. I am so excited...hope that some of your web-based stuff will be available in some form for them to see in the Spring; but, regardless, I am thrilled.

1:27:08 - Peggy George
this is the letter he wrote to Karen: Dear Ms. McMillian,
I am sorry it's late but I had a burst of inspiration that could not wait. I was thinking about how so many people have so many great ideas but aren't able or don't choose to share them. Don't ask why I started to think this.
so I started to create a site for students or even adults to share their ideas on on a variety of subjects. People would get to influence the site by sending me emails about a new subject or a comment on one page. However, I am not very good at sites, but you, from the looks of the seventh grade website, are very skilled. Will you help me?"

1:27:24 - Peggy George
wouldn't you love to have a student write you a letter like that???
