05:44 to: Peggy George
not many districts or schools are using social media to connect with families here in AZ--hope this changes soon

05:45 to: carolteach4
I don't know one personally, but I understand the teacher of the year uses Facebook.

05:46 to: virginia alberti
I with my students

06:00 to: Peggy George
Hi carolteach4--so glad to see you!!!

06:28 to: carolteach4
It's been really hectic, Peggy. Been missing all of you. Can't stay for whole session but wanted to drop in.

06:30 to: Peggy George
I would have loved to have this option when I was a principal (now retired)

06:48 to: Peggy George
thanks for dropping in carolteach4!

07:32 to: Peggy George
I never understood the difference in the term "school board" between the US and Canada

07:36 to: carolteach4
I haven't been on Twitter in a few weeks, but when I find it a terrific resource. I mainly follow know educators such as Peggy.

07:43 to: carolteach4
known

07:49 to: T.J. Goertz
Neither did I Peggy.This is interesting.

08:01 to: Peggy George
in the US our School Board is more like their trustees

08:06 to: McTeach
I fear what would come of California if we were left to decide our own education decisions!!

08:16 to: Peggy George
love it McTeach!!!

08:24 to: Peggy George
might be just the answer for CA!!

08:37 to: Kim Caise, backup computer
i totally agree peggy

09:07 to: Kim Caise, backup computer
with the collective powers that be might be just the change that CA needs to reform teaching in CA

09:08 to: Peggy George
in my mind I am equating the Toronoto District School Board with our local "school district" and not the governing board.

09:09 to: McTeach
Peggy...there are lots of answers for CA, but certain people have to be willing to listen!

09:16 to: Roger D
Good luck wresting control away from the Feds!

09:23 to: Kim Caise, backup computer
so true mcteach

09:30 to: Peggy George
so excited to hear from all of you!!

09:41 to: April Brown

10:37 to: caffeine-cindy
11 PM for me :-)

10:48 to: TechnologyToday - Stephen Morris
Been on Classroom 2.0 for some time, but never participated in a life Classroom 2.0 session - this is great!

10:50 to: Peggy George
Yes April!! I am in AZ :-) I was speaking for our Thailand participant :-)

11:02 to: Peggy George
I would love to be in Thailand though!!

11:04 to: carolteach4
Oh, that explains it, Peggy.

11:08 to: Tony P
WOW

11:08 to: April Brown
okay

11:09 to: jackiegerstein
Love Canadian "abouts" - sounds very cool

11:18 to: Kim Caise, backup computer
lol

11:21 to: carolteach4
Noon here in CT and an absolutely beautiful day.

11:24 to: caffeine-cindy
isn't that "aboot"?

11:28 to: Bene
Kudos to Ms. Ristuccia and all for participating in this feature!! I am a writer and it's interesting to see how social media affects other industries.

11:31 to: Lorna Costantini
I love the fact that you think we!! have an accent :)

11:31 to: Peggy George
Hi Jackie!! so glad you could join us! you always add such great links!!

11:44 to: Aveline
Thanks Bene :D Good to see you here!

11:49 to: jackiegerstein
Thanks Peggy - I always learn something new in these sessions

12:09 to: Peggy George
I'm so glad we have social media now--a whole lot different than the telephone "hot line" we used to send one-way messages to parents when I was a principal

12:33 to: Aviva (@grade1)
I agree!!

12:41 to: McTeach
Peggy...Jackie has an amazing wealth of knowledge!!!!

12:51 to: stidmama
In our family, due to one member's over-fascination with facebook, we have had to block that application. So I wonder whether other people, like me, can only access certain social media away from hom

12:51 to: stidmama
e?

13:02 to: jackiegerstein
Social media IS THE reason I have become so engaged in the internet - I have met so many new friends an colleagues through social media - this elluminate is a form of social media

13:12 to: jackiegerstein
@McTeach - I am addicted to learning

13:15 to: Bene
Wonder how social media use differs in US vs. Canada schools?

13:19 to: Aviva (@grade1)
Are Twitter and Facebook open in the schools for teachers and students to access too? Twitter's open in our Board, but not Facebook. Just curious ... Maybe getting to it later.

13:29 to: McTeach
Jackie...not a bad addiction at all! :)

13:31 to: Liz
How do you get your administration to buy into social media?

13:33 to: jackiegerstein
:)

13:39 to: Peggy George
neither are open in our local districts

13:47 to: jeremyball
I like twitter as a general outreach...It's a safe one way communication...

13:47 to: carolteach4
Facebook is blockedd at our district in CT

13:49 to: Mark Bohland, M.Ed., M.Photog.
Our district blocks facebook & youtube.

13:55 to: jeremyball
What about CIPA concerns??

13:56 to: Alison
@Aviva, here in Poenix, AZ, our district allows Facebook and Twitter to be open during the school day.

14:01 to: Kim Caise, backup computer
demonstrate the wealth and power of connecting using social media helps gets buy in

14:01 to: Tony P
i blocked FB in our school :(

14:13 to: sarahjane
Aviva nothing seems to be blocked - execpt when we tried to go to shopping channel - got read screen, but gooogleed it linked

14:13 to: Jeff Bezler
facebook, youtube, and twitter are all blocked in my district....ugh

14:20 to: sarahjane

14:43 to: jackiegerstein

15:14 to: Roger D

15:14 to: LisaDempster
I hear you, a bit choppy

15:14 to: Issypessoa
this was a new decision by our board in the past year

15:16 to: roxannec
audio is gettinworse

15:16 to: jackiegerstein
;(

15:19 to: Mark Bohland, M.Ed., M.Photog.
Schooltube and teachertueb haev not yet been blocked here.

15:23 to: jackiegerstein

15:27 to: mrsdurff

15:39 to: Paula Naugle
Can use Twitter at school but not FB.

15:44 to: sarahjane
a mac?

15:44 to: Kim Caise, backup computer
i often have to switch back and forth between the mac and pc for audio

15:46 to: Peggy George
you can scroll on the twitter page while you wait

15:51 to: April Brown
We have Twitter and Facebook in our school. Some schools block these social media sites for students but not for teachers.

16:00 to: mrsdurff
A man with a back up plan? Unheard of!

16:03 to: jackiegerstein
We can see that by your label @Kim on Backup Computer

16:11 to: Peggy George
isn't he amazing!

16:16 to: mrsdurff
yes

16:18 to: Nikki Robertson
Alabama recently passed First Choice requirements that "force" schools in Alabama to use Web 2.0 tools as an integral part of their classroom. Great PP online if you want to learn more.

16:26 to: T.J. Goertz
I am back Stuart

16:31 to: Kathleen Shelton Haskell
Twitter and FB not blocked, but no PD provided to staff

16:33 to: Peggy George
wow Nikki!! force schools to use web 2.0

16:36 to: jackiegerstein
Really Nikki - do you have a link to that?

16:40 to: Peggy George
where is the pp online?

16:50 to: Aviva (@grade1)
Neat to see the difference in what's open and what's blocked. Twitter and YouTube are open here, but not Facebook.

16:55 to: Liz
great for Alabama :)

16:58 to: Peggy George
"hoops for hope"--great idea with live tweets during the game :-)

17:12 to: mrsdurff
our school has "School's Out Alert" emails -> can we link this to a twitter acct and put it on auto pilot?

17:36 to: Aviva (@grade1)
I love that idea too! Dr. Spence did Hoops for Hopes with our Board, but never with live tweets. Love the idea!

17:45 to: Kim Caise, backup computer
yes you could. you can schedule tweets using several web apps

17:55 to: Peggy George
all of their twitter links are in our gl.am links so you can follow all of them!! http://gl.am/A6dgS

18:05 to: Aviva (@grade1)
That is a big difference, April! Amazing to see all the differences.

18:11 to: mrsdurff
Hmmmm - this may convince the super - ty kim

https://docs.alsde.edu/documents/54/02%20FIRST%20CHOICE%20and%20Supporting%20Programs.pptx

18:18 to: sarahjane
what in gl.am?

18:19 to: roxannec
what ways do you use to ensure tholse not online also freceive the information?

18:37 to: Kim Caise, backup computer
gl.am is a web app that allows you to compile a list of websites into one URL

18:43 to: roxannec
What percentage of your famillies are online using these methods to communicate with you?

18:44 to: Aveline
Facebook IS allowed at the TDSB

18:55 to: April Brown
I'd like to know what gl.am is as well

18:57 to: LisaDempster
pretty good

that's their facebook page

19:13 to: Kathleen Shelton Haskell
still choppy

19:21 to: Issypessoa
losing you again

19:23 to: mrsdurff
it may be his ISP - can he call in?

19:32 to: Tony P
nice page :)

19:33 to: Peggy George
no telephone for today

19:48 to: Aviva (@grade1)
Wow! Neat to see that Facebook is open in the Board. What do you have in place to ensure that students are using it well? Are any teachers using it in classes with their students?

19:52 to: Peggy George
is the logo an apple?

19:56 to: LisaDempster
nope, sound chopping - someone said it you dont' experience tech problems you are not using enough tech! :)

20:12 to: Kim Caise, backup computer
so true @lisa!

20:15 to: sarahjane
lisa I like that!

20:16 to: Tony P
green applpe :)

20:21 to: Peggy George
really fading in and out--so sorry!

20:24 to: McTeach
Does anyone have a separate Facebook account to use with kids and parents?

20:38 to: mrsdurff
someon have him call in and bridge it

20:38 to: Jeff Bezler
thinking about making one

20:40 to: Peggy George
it's a great logo!

20:47 to: Alison
@McTeach, the 8th grade team at my school does and I'm setting one up for 7th grade

21:00 to: sarahjane
all I see on board is my fb login?

21:03 to: caffeine-cindy
Nice page. Our student alumni groups use FB, as do many teaches, but not the school itself

21:10 to: Tony P
great logo... bite the apple. get into the bandwagon :)

21:11 to: McTeach
Jeff and Alison...what do you use them for?

21:24 to: LisaDempster
I have a separate FB for school/ students look for RCI Library http://www.facebook.com/pages/Toronto-ON/RCI-Library-Riverdale-Collegiate-Institute-Learning-Commons/117680164961?ref=nf

21:31 to: McTeach
Actually, I guess the question is what will you use them for?

21:31 to: Liz
Our counselors, athletics and clubs all have FB accounts to communicate with kids and parents

21:33 to: Alison
@McTEach, to give assignments, reminders, etc.

21:34 to: carolteach4
I'll have to catch the rest on the archive. It's nice ot have examples of educational institutions using these tools successfully. This may help allay many fears of othe school systems. I wonder if th

21:34 to: carolteach4
ey ever have inappropriate comments, and if so, how they deal with them.

21:46 to: Peggy George
can anyone who joins the FB group post to the group?

22:03 to: Bene
how are scarborough schools using social media like Fb and Twitter?

22:03 to: LisaDempster
I am MsLibrarian Dempster for that account, not my family account - but this disctinction is becoming blurred to our students' generation

22:05 to: Peggy George
thanks for that link Lisa!!

22:29 to: Alison
@Peggy, if you are a friend, you can post to the wall, but only the teachers with the log in can post

22:33 to: McTeach
Thanks Alison!

22:47 to: Peggy George
I see-thanks!

22:55 to: roxannec
what is the amount of funding committed to making sure that your social media sites are up, running, and current?

22:57 to: Jeff Bezler
I'm going to use it, if I decided to make one, to keep assignments updated, have a discussion board and keep parents posted on happenings in the classroom so that nothing really comes as a shock. It

22:57 to: Jeff Bezler
may not work since fb is blocked at school...i might use edmodo and just create a different network altogether

22:58 to: sarahjane
lisa are you in high school?

23:14 to: April Brown
Yes. But my computer or elluminate is really slow today. My audio is also bad

23:18 to: Mark Bohland, M.Ed., M.Photog.
How do you handle "inapproropriate" posts to your facebook page? Can you limit who can post to the school "wall"?

23:19 to: Aviva (@grade1)
Are all of your teachers embracing this technology? How are you getting teachers more involved in using it?

23:28 to: LisaDempster
In my library FB, yes folks who join can add to the page, but I may disable adding over the summer when I don't look at it... interesting issue...

23:35 to: roxannec
staff assignments and number?

23:40 to: sarahjane
Does emodo have age restriction?

23:41 to: mrsdurff
Get them on Earthcast peggy!

23:46 to: McTeach
Jeff...I LOVE Edmodo!!!

23:55 to: Peggy George
this is the video I watched this morning!! love it!

23:58 to: McTeach
Sarahjane...I don't think so

23:58 to: April Brown
We could set up a facebook page to communicate with each other as well, next year.

24:05 to: mrsdurff
hook them them up with Earthbridges peggy!!

24:07 to: jackiegerstein
Goal for self - learn and Edmodo this year

24:11 to: sarahjane
Mcteach what age do you teach?

24:11 to: Jeff Bezler
i don't believe edmodo does, i didn't see one at least - most of my kids are right on the border of age restrictions (7th grade)

24:12 to: jackiegerstein
use

24:23 to: caffeine-cindy
Is emodo social network like FB?

24:31 to: Peggy George

24:37 to: stidmama
I LOVE this video!

24:54 to: McTeach
sarahjane...I work with 7th and 8th graders (12 to 14)

24:56 to: jackiegerstein
I have been reading about COPPA - a lot of the tools are just protecting themselves regarding sharing personal information which is what COPAA is about

24:57 to: Peggy George
hope you could see the video

25:05 to: Bene
great vid!

25:12 to: April Brown
Yes but audio is really bad

25:15 to: Jeff Bezler
@ caffeine-cindy yes, education based....just experimenting, but it seems to have a lot of the same functionality

25:17 to: Rawya
sure...it's a great video

25:18 to: Aviva (@grade1)
Edmodo seems to have a similar look, but it's private. Have used it with my Gr. 1's. They really like it! Can't use it on IE6 though, which is a problem at our school, as many computers still run on i

25:18 to: Aviva (@grade1)
t.

25:24 to: LisaDempster
Yes, I am high school 9-12

25:25 to: Liz
video was good and audio worked

25:26 to: Peggy George
we're going to try to bring TJ in on the phone

25:35 to: Peggy George
thanks for the feedback-glad you could see it!

25:36 to: jackiegerstein
good idea Peggy

25:38 to: April Brown
Really powerful video

25:48 to: caffeine-cindy
uh-oh, ours mostly run IE6 too

25:51 to: Paula Naugle
Oops sorry about that I didn't see that my chat was set to moderators.

26:04 to: virginia alberti
beatiful video

26:05 to: Tony P
are these slide downloable?

26:09 to: sarahjane
like this code of conduct - this done at local level or prov wide?

26:33 to: jackiegerstein
It is all about responsible use - can't teach kids responsible use if we ban them from the tools

26:39 to: Aviva (@grade1)
Do you have Moxilla Firefox on any of your machines? Students can't get it on their login, but I can on mine. Firefox runs Edmodo.

26:45 to: McTeach
Jackie...Amen, sister!!!!!

26:46 to: caffeine-cindy
TRUE Jackie!

26:49 to: jackiegerstein
:)

26:52 to: Peggy George
yes you can save these slides by clicking on save>whiteboard save as PDF

26:58 to: Jeff Bezler
amen jackie!

27:07 to: Peggy George
can hear great Manny!

Preaching to the choir - it seems

27:13 to: Tony P
yes. much better audio

27:13 to: caffeine-cindy
good suggestion Aviva. I'll check that out

Dr. Chris Spence has no shortage of excellent videos: Check out his collection at: https://mytdsb.on.ca/+CSCO+0h756767633A2F2F6771666F6A726F++/_site/ViewItem.asp?siteid=10390&menuid=22268&pageid=1938

27:24 to: sarahjane
peggy do I wait until the end to save slides for all

27:30 to: Jeff Bezler
we teach how to use excel, word, and paint-like programs, which has its uses, but we don't teach responsibility

27:40 to: McTeach
Jackie...yes, perhaps. But it's great reinforcement!

27:40 to: Aviva (@grade1)
Good luck! Hope it works! Twiducate is a great to use too. Safe way for students to interact with each other. Runs on IE6 too.

27:47 to: Alison
Isn't that true, that Middle schoolers don't want to inform parents

27:48 to: Peggy George
you can save the slides and chat any time during the session but you can't type while you're saving it

27:50 to: Lorna Costantini
The full recording will be posted on our wesite at the end of the day http://live.classroom20.com

28:03 to: sarahjane
thanks to Aviva my grade 1's love twiducate

28:06 to: jackiegerstein
Can teach "social" responsibility if kids are using "solo" tools - working independently of others

28:29 to: Aviva (@grade1)
Glad to hear that, Sarahjane!

28:29 to: sarahjane
poeple have links to good sites to teach responsiblity to primary kids

28:36 to: Peggy George
great transition for communication with middle school parents!

28:59 to: April Brown
Great way to communicate those events at school.

29:00 to: Paula Naugle
@cindy-caffine You can post assignments, polls, videos and lots more on Edmodo. Kids can log in wiith no email needed. Class is private and only those with the code can have access. Kids can chat with

29:00 to: Paula Naugle
each other and teacher sees everything.

29:06 to: Lorna Costantini
I remember being stuck in teh parking lot

29:12 to: McTeach
We have that same issue when I take 7th graders to camp!

29:15 to: Peggy George
make sure you are sending your messages to "this room" or only the moderators will see them

29:18 to: McTeach
That's a great idea!!!

29:47 to: Peggy George
this is so forward-thinking!! awesome!

29:47 to: caffeine-cindy
That sounds like just what I'm usually looking for Paula. Thanks!

RE Problem Based Learning (PBL) collaboration:
Text during the session was traveling too fast for me to keep up, so here is an introduction to my thoughts.

Hi, I Mark from Lexington, Ohio (North Cent

I have the privilege of working with young (grades 3-5 U.S.) academically gifted students in Mount Vernon, OH.

I’m particularly interested in finding another teacher whose s

Mark Bohland, M.Ed., M.Photog.
tudents might collaborate with mine on a simple but authentic Problem Based Learning task this autumn.

It might be good if we worked with students in the same time zone, so we could communicate “live

1:00:45 to:
Mark Bohland, M.Ed., M.Photog.
” during the school day.


I’ve guided students through PBL tasks for 10 years or so (and have 2 units published by Prufrock Press) but until I know with whom our students will be working, I have no i

Moderating is key- even within adult/teacher only forums we have seen situations of inapporpriate posts. But it is not a clear issue as to who will moderate and what happens if something inappropriate

1:01:55 to:
LisaDempster
slips through on potentially dozens of sites and sub-forums.

1:01:58 to:
Peggy George
I really agree with your comment stidmama!! we can't just use one form of communication with parents!

1:02:00 to:
Aviva (@grade1)
@stidmama: I use a bit of everything. I have a website, 4 blogs (2 professional ones and 2 student ones), a Twitter account, I sent out weekly e-mails, I use an agenda, and I call my parents once a we

1:02:18 to:
Peggy George
they often didn't read the newsletters coming home but we didn't stop sending them

1:02:48 to:
Peggy George
Aviva-I think you are the "queen" of multiple ways to communicate!!

1:02:54 to:
LisaDempster
Parents certainly want to feel safe knowing external communications are moderated.

1:02:57 to:
Issypessoa
@stidmama I feel the need to send out an email along with posting it on my class site because I'm not sure parents are checking the site. As it is, many of my parents don't regularly access online so

1:02:57 to:
Issypessoa
I need to send paper copies to about one quarter of my class

1:03:04 to:
Sheri Edwards
Amazing @Aviva -- and you have a grade 1 class to guide. :)

1:03:09 to:
Aviva (@grade1)
How have teachers responded to the use of Facebook in the schools? I use Twitter, but Facebook just seems different to me. I don't even have my own account. Curious what others think ...

1:03:12 to:
Pam
More of our parents have cellphones than computers w/Int access.

1:03:38 to:
Paula Naugle
In our school newsletter there is a hidden question. If students bring in answer from parent they receive two free pencils.

1:04:02 to:

often we are connecting our various accounts--I post to twitter through Tweetdeck and it automatically posts to Facebook and Friendfeed

1:04:02 to:
LisaDempster
I find teachers are all over the map with FB and other social media, some vehemently disagree altogether, while others are enthusiastic first users.

1:04:03 to:
Pam
@paula I agree that diff modes of communication is important.

1:04:11 to:
Aviva (@grade1)
Thanks Peggy! Very passionate about creating a strong home-school connection. Think it's really, really important!!!

1:04:25 to:
April Brown
@Aviva I have a Facebook account and it's purely for my personal use. Students don't have access but I do communicate with some parents on it but not about things that happen at school

Does this bring up the digital divide between SD's - our district is small and can't/doesn't choose to have a staff member devoted to monitoring

1:05:06 to:

Thanks Sheri! I do. Think offering multiple forms of communication is really important. Then I know that parents are getting this information. This is what I think is most important.
