01:34 to: Peggy George
could you give a red x if you haven't used elluminate before?
01:46 to: McTeach (Karen)
Thanks Lee! :)
02:06 to: Peggy George
the red x is below the list of participants :-)
02:20 to: Nancy Sharoff
I'm wearing my most spectacular 4 inch heeled red patent leather pumps in honor of McTeach's presenting!
02:29 to: Peggy George
love it Nancy!!!!
02:57 to: Nancy Sharoff
can someone mute themselves...hearing conversation going on in background...that's distracting.
03:01 to: McTeach (Karen)
Oh geez...Nancy...I'm wearing sneakers!
03:02 to: sarahjane
where on a mac?
03:11 to: McTeach (Karen)
Nancy...not hearing that
03:20 to: McTeach (Karen)
Perhaps it's just the voices in your head again
03:28 to: Peggy George
the green check and red x are right at the bottom of the participant list--on both mac and pc
03:36 to: Nancy Sharoff
no, seriously.....they're talking about a conference....
03:44 to: Nancy Sharoff
now they are discussing lunch.
03:47 to: Peggy George
the wide layout works best when there is a lot of chat :-)
04:13 to: sarahjane

04:15 to: Nancy Sharoff
OMG!!!! That was me! I was trying to listen in to TELL
04:27 to: Nancy Sharoff

I own the original Flip, the revised Flip, the Flip Mino, and just bought a Kodak zi6
06:16 to: Peggy George
aren't flip video cameras the best??!!
06:24 to: Nancy Sharoff
Pro of Kodak zi6 over Flips -- ability to take still pictures
06:32 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
I got 4 new HD Flip cameras this year. Am so excited. We're making paper slide videos.
06:47 to: Nancy Sharoff
I LOVE the concept of paper slide videos!
06:49 to: aunttammie
Nancy how much is the zi6?
06:49 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Hi Sheri.
06:56 to: Len H
Hi Paula!
06:58 to: Peggy George
I wish I had a HD flip camera! Mine is one of the originals
06:59 to: Sheri Edwards
Hi Kim New computer -- trying to set settings :)
07:21 to: Sheri Edwards
07:22 to: butrflygirl
@Nancy Are you wearing your purple wig with your heels?
07:31 to: Nancy Sharoff
Got the Zi6 for $60 cash/no tax (it fell off the back of a truck! LOL) And my district went and bought 10 from the same provider!
07:43 to: Nancy Sharoff
@butrflygirl - no purple wig today
07:52 to: Angela (kyteacher)
Mine are originals as well. Would love some new ones.
07:56 to: Peggy George
you'll get some great ideas about using google apps from McTeach today!
08:08 to: Peggy George
I've created a podcast but not with students :-)
08:09 to: McTeach (Karen)
Paula...we're loving paper slide videos!
08:11 to: zmidler
GApps Edu School--love it
08:25 to: Lisa Mellen

08:35 to: Sheri Edwards
Hi Paula - great to be here again; been missing my Saturdays !
08:38 to: Peggy George
we're about 50-50 on all of our poll questions!! Lots of great input for Karen!
09:01 to: Jan
Never heard of this book.
09:02 to: Peggy George
wait till you hear about Book Whisperer today!!! You'll be using it!
09:14 to: aunttammie

09:15 to: Peggy George
We hope to have her as a guest on our show!!
09:30 to: butrflygirl

09:36 to: Jan Common Craft!
09:45 to: Maureen@bcdtech
Looking forward to McTeach today.... just cut my brother off on the phone, but still have carptenters banging on the siding beside me. Talk really loudly Karen!

10:10 to: Lee Kolbert
10:14 to: Peggy George
Welcome Karen!!!! So Thrilled you are here!!!!!
10:18 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Virtual applause.
10:22 to: Nancy Sharoff
woohoo STOMPING FEET (in 4 inch high heels)
10:32 to: Angela (kyteacher)
Hooray Karen!
10:33 to: Peggy George
hilarious Nancy!!
10:37 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Nancy love your shoes.
10:49 to: Lee Kolbert
oh stop
10:57 to: Peggy George
no surprise there! She is an obvious choice for a Featured Teacher!!
10:58 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Hi Angela.
11:00 to: Nancy Sharoff
thx @plnaugle -- I'll do (just about) anything for my PLN
11:03 to: Angela (kyteacher)
No confusion here...great choice.
11:21 to: Angela (kyteacher)
Hi Paula.
11:22 to: aunttammie
Yea for another Catholic School teacher!!:)
11:29 to: Kim Caise
same here after teaching middle school - i love it!
11:33 to: Peggy George
I can't imagine her teaching any other grade! She really knows how to relate to middle schoolers!!
12:01 to: Peggy George (Blog for McTeach: Notes from McTeach)
12:11 to: Peggy George (Ms McMillan's Blog)
12:14 to: Lee Kolbert
She rocks as a teacher and not bad as a massager too (can't spell masseuse)
12:16 to: Kim Caise
is that like mcdreamy?
12:21 to: Peggy George
she has a mcbro too :-)
12:39 to: Peggy George (McTeach on Plurk)
12:40 to: Kim Caise
12:45 to: Lee Kolbert
We all love you, Karen. Don't be nervous.
12:51 to: Peggy George (McTeach on Twitter)
13:05 to: Peggy George
now that's something I could use!! massage!!!
13:09 to: Kim Caise
13:14 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
I jealous. I didn't get a massage.
13:14 to: Kim Caise
i missed it!
13:22 to: Peggy George
chocolate definitely works for me!!
13:25 to: Nancy Sharoff
Presenter's Tip: If you're nervous, curl your toes (it 'supposedly' relaxes you)
13:26 to: Kim Caise
same here
13:32 to: Kim Caise
interesting nancy
13:36 to: Delbusch
Yes I am in a Catholid school too
13:54 to: Peggy George
the web 2.0 question is just to get the juices flowing!!
13:59 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@Nancy can you curl your toes in 4 inch heels?
14:18 to: Lee Kolbert
Web 2.0 = makes my life easier! Makes students jazzed. Brings the world closer.
14:29 to: Len H
that hurts just thinking about it
14:33 to: Peggy George
the whole area of connecting and collaborating is such an important part of web 2.0!
14:36 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
LOL Len.
14:37 to: Lee Kolbert
Let's my PLN do my work for me!
14:44 to: zmidler
empower student voice
14:50 to: Laura Sheehy
:) Lee
14:55 to: Peggy George
in order to be ready for "life" :-)
15:01 to: @teacherdebra
The web has totally made me a technology teacher. I wouldn't have been able to do this job without it.
15:08 to: Martin
the only question is that by using the numbers we are really at 39.5.72
15:08 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Engages our students and empowers them to create and collaborate.
15:17 to: Peggy George
excellent explanation McTeach!
15:41 to: Lee Kolbert
I'm always nervous, are you kidding???
15:45 to: Peggy George
number one rule of presenting is don't read your slides :-)
15:49 to: Kim Caise
took some arm twisting to convince mcteach
15:53 to: Jan
Curl your toes...supposedly that works!
15:53 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
All presenters are nervous. We're here for you McTeach.
16:09 to: Peggy George
I love this story!!!
16:19 to: zmidler
just imagine us all in our underwear--oh wait, we are
16:20 to: Lee Kolbert
I usually spend 30 min before preso in bathroom
16:26 to: Peggy George
I'm sure there were some very creative suggestions from the kids for the title :-)
16:29 to: Kim Caise
are you serious lee?
16:35 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@zmidler Too funny.
16:37 to: Kim Caise
even on palm breeze?
16:48 to: Lee Kolbert
No, not on PalmBreeze (anymore)
16:53 to: bruno_cesar82
hey everyone
16:56 to: Peggy George
having a theme for the year is a great idea!
17:06 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Hi Bruno.
17:10 to: Sheri Edwards
I've obviously been away too long; I'm not getting some of your jokes.
17:19 to: Lee Kolbert
PalmBreeze = don't feel like anyone's watching anyway LOL
17:21 to: Tom Krawczewicz
My students would probably come up with "wth?" or "Why Me?" for me! :)
17:29 to: Jan
You're all scaring me. I have to do presentation on Monday.
17:31 to: Kim Caise
i am totally sure they are
17:32 to: Peggy George
love it Tom!
17:33 to:
What does she teach?
17:41 to: Lee Kolbert
Perfect sense
17:51 to: Peggy George
She teaches middle school-gr. 7-8
17:55 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@Jan where and what are you presenting?
17:57 to: Laura Sheehy
you're doing great!
17:59 to:
18:07 to: Martin

18:07 to: Lee Kolbert
I love these ideas

Success in a Click
18:20 to: Victoria
I loved "Eat, pray, type!"
18:24 to: Nancy Sharoff
@plnaugle you'd be surprised what I can accomplish in 4 inch heels! LOL Try running down the lawn after a German Shepherd! (yup, I did -- and aerated my lawn in the process)
18:31 to: Peggy George
I love Eat, Pray,Type!!
18:33 to: Lee Kolbert
Eat pray type
18:33 to: glumb
Very imaginative. Congrats to your students!
18:38 to: Angela (kyteacher)
Screen Deep - Great name!
18:39 to: Lee Kolbert
I like "Eat, Type, Pray"
18:46 to:
18:59 to: Lee Kolbert
Don't we all pray after we've typed? Pray that what we've sent or written makes sense?
19:01 to: Peggy George
those are so cute! I especially like Google-y Googleness :-)
19:08 to: Kim Caise
this was a fantastic idea!
19:09 to: Peggy George
yes Lee!!
19:09 to: Tom Krawczewicz
Web 2.0 Therapy?
19:10 to: zmidler
oh, I thought you meant Clusty
19:23 to: Lee Kolbert
I love this. Pay attention to this now!!!
19:26 to: Peggy George
I love that Karen combines hands-on with tech--not all tech!
19:29 to: @teacherdebra
i like the paper blogs idea to introduce blogging. I think i have seen this before
19:32 to:
19:39 to: @teacherdebra
maybe on your blog
19:39 to: Maureen@bcdtech
lost audio
19:40 to: Angela (kyteacher)
LOVE this idea!
19:40 to: sarahjane
lost my audio?
19:41 to: Laura Sheehy
lost sound?
19:41 to: glumb
Lost sound. Just me?
19:43 to: Kim Caise
karen, lost your audio
19:46 to: @teacherdebra
no, me 2
19:48 to: Melissa DeWitt

19:49 to: Victoria
everyone did.

19:50 to: Peggy George
19:51 to: Martin
great. love it. relating to other concepts.
19:55 to: Martin
lost audio
20:01 to:
we hear you
20:15 to: Peggy George
she'll be right back
20:28 to: Kim Caise
20:33 to: Lee Kolbert
Oh poor Karen. Will probably make her more nervous.

How many people are planning on attending K12 Online Conference?
20:50 to: Peggy George (Notes from McTeach: Learning to Blog Using Paper)
20:59 to: Peggy George
21:08 to: Jan
Love the paper blog to intro. my 2nd graders to commenting on blogs.
21:09 to: Nancy Sharoff
hey, it's tech,...we EXPECT it! LOL
21:11 to: Kim Caise
that happens to me a lot too
21:12 to: Peggy George
those things happen!! very frustrating! no worries!
21:13 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Welcome back, Karen.
21:22 to: Peggy George
our motto is "expect the unexpected"
21:25 to: roxanne clement
right at the beginning
21:26 to: Lee Kolbert
beginning of paper blog activity
21:40 to: Lee Kolbert
explain from beginning
21:43 to: Peggy George
never thought of doing a paper blog and it sounds like it is so effective!
21:59 to: Kim Caise
great precursor activity to online student blogging
22:02 to: Kim Caise
22:05 to: Martin
remember if you are not going crazy and possibly frustrated - you're not using "modern: technology.
22:07 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
22:08 to: Peggy George
22:10 to: Kim Caise
22:13 to:
my numbers are usually reversed!
22:14 to: Tom Krawczewicz
Kist gives a great suggestion for introducing blogs with paper in The Socially Networked Classroom.
22:14 to: Laura Sheehy
22:14 to: Len H
22:14 to: Lee Kolbert
I learned this from Karen and did this with my kids. Excellent pre-blogging activity
22:17 to: roxanne clement
mean girl behavior potential
22:20 to: Lisa Mellen
Going to do this with our 6th graders. Great idea!
22:24 to: zmidler
I am imagining a bulletin board in the LMC, one giant paper blog--hmmmm?
22:30 to: Peggy George
tell about the sticky notes
22:32 to:
love it
22:36 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
I have 17 boys and 7 girls.
22:36 to: Laura Sheehy
love the idea of paper blog or paper twitter before launching on web!
22:40 to: Jan
Experiencing the cattiness in 2nd gr. right now.
22:41 to: Patti Harju
love the idea of a bulletin board Blog!
22:42 to: Kim Caise
if i were stillin the classroom i would definitely use this idea
22:48 to: Tom Krawczewicz
I have all boys.
22:51 to: Sheri Edwards
This works very well... paper blogging... debriefing is key
22:51 to: Kim Caise
before moving to online blogging
22:56 to: Angela (kyteacher)
Lots of least in my 5th period with 23 girls & 4 boys.
22:58 to: Maureen@bcdtech
I may try this with my 7th graders soon- just from past experience they need to practice commenting. Either redundant, mean or just say I agree, or " and yeah...."
23:02 to: Lee Kolbert
My students have been doing this for 2 weeks. this week will finally get their real blogs
23:04 to: Peggy George (Seventh Grade Blogging Rules Handout)
23:26 to: Peggy George
this makes so much sense! they need guidelines!
23:40 to: Peggy George (Handout Karen uses with Paper Blogs activity)
23:41 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Wish I had heard this before moving my 4th graders onto
23:47 to: Maureen@bcdtech
Most of my classes- all but 1 are boy dominated- different vibe
23:50 to: clinds
Thanks for sharing these guidelines! I'm going to start blogging with 2nd graders and this will be a great resource!
23:51 to: Martin
that is a great way to instruct. I had a discussion with colleages and just this week on a webinar, what would you do if you had to teach (21st century skills) without having technology. This is a gre
23:51 to: Martin
at relation to the concepts.
24:14 to: Peggy George
their use of sarcasm sometimes can be very hurtful!
24:30 to: Lisa Mellen
middle schoolers can be cruel
24:33 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@marin I wouldn't want to teach without tech.
24:34 to: Peggy George (Notes from McTeach: Learning to Blog Using Paper)
24:47 to: Laura Sheehy
Thanks Peggy!
24:54 to: Peggy George
Hi Laura :-)
25:00 to: Laura Sheehy
Hi :)
25:12 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
So their are family.
25:15 to: Maureen@bcdtech
Karen, can you talk about how you get the comments to be more meaningful? Many of my kids don't add much of substance in comments
25:40 to: Kim Caise
25:42 to: Peggy George
I'll try to bring up some of these web pages for you
25:44 to: @teacherdebra
i second@maureen
25:44 to: Peggy George
25:54 to: Peggy George
25:55 to: Kim Caise
26:14 to: Peggy George
I'll close the web tour whenever you move on to next slides :-)
26:28 to: Peggy George
what a creative blog page!
26:30 to: @teacherdebra
did someone draw this?
26:36 to: Kim Caise
the student did
26:44 to: Peggy George
love that she has kids thinking about what they are passionate about!
26:49 to: zmidler
I stopped saying home work and call it a "sanity check" or prerequisite activity--it's all about the marketing
26:50 to: Len H
Oh no, I see Justin B. blogs in my future!
26:50 to: Peggy George
not a template :-)
26:51 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
This child is very artist.
27:05 to: Kim Caise
you got that right with 7th grade girls Len!
27:07 to: Laura Sheehy
love that they have to use handwriting too!
27:09 to: Maureen@bcdtech
I had my current 8th graders in K, then I taught them science in 1, 2, 3, computer in 1st too, and now have had them in computer class since 6th grade. Some big changes, and some things stay the same
27:09 to: Maureen@bcdtech
. Interesting to have had them for so many years.
27:15 to: Kim Caise
the Beiber blogs!
27:22 to: Len H
27:30 to: Peggy George
really gives them a chance to share their talents!
27:38 to: Peggy George
how cute!!
27:41 to: Christine B
I each 8th grade and not one of them writes in cursive anymore! Anyone else have that probkem?
27:43 to: Lee Kolbert
So, you've spent some time exploring blogs with them so they can see what they look like?
27:47 to: glumb
Looks like great quality
27:51 to: Peggy George
love it!!!
28:05 to: Maureen@bcdtech
I just started giving my kids google sites to set up their portfolios- they are very excited.
28:13 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
No cursive is being taught in my school anymore.
28:14 to: Peggy George
this is so helpful!! what a great way to introduce writing comments!
28:15 to: zmidler
Asking them to blog about what interested them is key--very student-centered
28:29 to: @teacherdebra
thee look great. my son (in 8th grade) has horrible writing. my daughter's 5th grade teacher wants to make kids use cursive. I want them to type.
28:51 to: Christine B
There is something so sweet about their own handwriting.
29:07 to: Maureen@bcdtech
@Paula- Did you see that article someone posted in twitter today- think it was NYtimes and talking about how teaching handwriting may be important?
29:09 to: glumb
Are these resources on mcteach's website?
29:10 to: Peggy George (Handout Karen uses with Paper Blogs activity)
29:15 to: Lee Kolbert
ha, then that means, not mine
29:16 to: Kim Caise
there are fonts that are based on your own handwriting
29:19 to: Peggy George
she has many websites and blogs
29:25 to: glumb
Thanks Peggy
29:28 to: Peggy George
these links are from several of them
29:45 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
I tell my students when they write a comment to quote a line form the blog that they like and then tell the writer why they liked it. It helps them focus.
29:55 to: Angela (kyteacher)
M9ost of my 11th graders have never seen a blog before my class.
29:57 to: Lee Kolbert
@paula I love that idea
29:57 to: Peggy George
I know some adults who could use that lesson!
30:25 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Also taught my students to use @(insert name) when responding back to a commenter.
30:26 to: Peggy George
that's a great tip!!!
30:28 to: Lee Kolbert
great idea, Karen
30:30 to: Kim Caise
that is important!
30:30 to: @teacherdebra
love this idea
30:37 to: Sheri Edwards
@paula -- me too, Paula -- really does help them focus
30:42 to: Christine B
Do the commenters write theri names on the sticky?
30:44 to: sarahjane
why paula?
30:46 to: Kim Caise
leader of the pack mentality
30:56 to: @teacherdebra
not to mention--when in a grp--do they even know what they think?
31:15 to: Peggy George
I remember learning about "groupthink" in grad school
31:15 to: Lee Kolbert
In the email field, I tell my elem students to use ( = 555 for phone numbers)
31:33 to: Tom Krawczewicz
If you can say it in the back seat of the car while your mom is driving without getting reprimanded, than it's probably okay.
31:35 to: Peggy George
love this pic!!!!
31:41 to: Randall F
Do you take down comments that don't follow the rules?
31:45 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@sarahjane Why what? Why the @? Becuase it is used in many social media spaces.
32:14 to: Lee Kolbert
Paula: I agree. It's become customary to address people online with the @ sign
32:15 to: @teacherdebra
do u have them
32:24 to: @teacherdebra
u just answerede my question
32:29 to: zmidler
Would love to Twitter this image--can I get a direct link?
32:31 to: clinds
This is such a great way to introduce blogs. I can't wait to try it out! I'm always trying to figure out how to get better comments and I think this type of modeling should make a big difference.
32:37 to: Maureen@bcdtech
@Randall good question, what do you do with comments that don't live up to expectations/rules
32:47 to: Lee Kolbert
I'd love these photos too
32:52 to: Christine B
Awww, I have 3 students on crutches now! Funny to see that in the pic.
33:01 to: Lee Kolbert
thanks so much
33:11 to: zmidler
This image alone would explain to teachers how this works--a pict. is worth a thousand attempts at explanation
33:16 to: Peggy George

33:28 to: Kristen B
Love this, I can't wait to use it with my 8th graders!!
33:31 to: Christine B
Dumb question, but do you give the stickies or do they bring them? Great color choices
33:37 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
I love this paper blog activity. I will start differently next year.
33:37 to: Sheri Edwards

34:33 to: Lee Kolbert
34:39 to: Laura Sheehy

34:40 to: Christine B

34:44 to: Peggy George

35:09 to: Sheri Edwards
This is super, Karen.
35:15 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
I'm still learning text-speak.
35:33 to: @teacherdebra
i had to download a text lexicon to keep in my posket
35:36 to: zmidler
Again, empowering their voice with their language
35:49 to: Angela (kyteacher)
Have my students summarize informational text in text messages - forces understanding.
35:50 to: butrflygirl
Where do you get a text lexicon?
35:53 to: @teacherdebra
makes it relevant to them
35:53 to: Sheri Edwards
Bye all; my school volleyball game in 30 minutes... want to get photos of my grade 8 kids... Thanks all

My students can't even read cursive, but they are taking Chinese, which includes writing in Chinese. This is what the parents value....
37:02 to: Kim Caise
37:26 to: Kim Caise
you can resize the window or use the scroll bars on the bottom and right side of the winndow to view more of the web page
37:55 to: Peggy George

40:14 to: Delbusch
Can't wait to share this session with our 7th grade teacher
40:17 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Nancy we beat me to it.
40:28 to: Christine B
The one book that consistenly attracts my entire class... with tears an all is The Outsiders.
40:44 to: Christine B
never fails.
40:45 to: @teacherdebra
my son just read that and LOVED it--THe OUtsiders
40:45 to: clinds
...or the book might not be the right reading-level for the student
41:06 to: Kim Caise
wow, the outsiders - such a timeless novel
41:07 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@Christine B Love that book. It is so meaningful to students.
41:14 to: Peggy George
41:15 to: Lisa Mellen
The Outsiders is the only book the kids remember after our middle school
41:20 to: Christine B
Can't wait to start it next week!
41:31 to: Kim Caise
my students loved holes
41:31 to: Christine B
Doing suspende (Edgar Allan Poe), Tell Tale Heart now
41:42 to: Peggy George
when you're there click on "add to Kindle". I would love to have a Kindle version of it!
41:52 to: @teacherdebra
Thx @mcteach--gotta p/u my son for a football game
41:56 to: Christine B
My parents have been comlaining about how high their AR goals are.... 40 books would scare the hell out of them'
42:08 to: Peggy George
love the pic! how many of us like to read sitting at a desk?? NOT
42:09 to: Maureen@bcdtech
@teacherdebra The Outsiders by SE Hinton?
42:20 to: Christine B
YEs!!! S.E. Hinton
42:29 to: Peggy George
these kids look so engaged in their reading!
42:31 to: Kim Caise
there is a kindle edition peggy $10.99
42:32 to: Christine B
Movie is great eye candy for the ladies as well!!!
42:37 to: susan
My Brother Sam Is Dead is another one they don't forget.
42:39 to: Maureen@bcdtech
Thanks Christine
42:41 to: Lee Kolbert
My parents are signinng students reading logs before the students are reading! Obviously not working.
42:41 to: @teacherdebra
yes--he read it in 7th grade
42:44 to: Randall F
Looks like a good book that all parents should read, too
42:52 to: Peggy George
talk about your reading logs Karen
42:55 to: Peggy George
42:58 to: Maureen@bcdtech
My 7th graders hated My Brother Sam is Dead
42:58 to: @teacherdebra
now i really have to go--bye!
43:02 to: Nancy Sharoff
RE: Book Whisperer -- if you have the B&N Nook application on your iPhone/iPad, etc. they have the digital version for about $15
43:04 to: zmidler
The Book Thief--Ahh, to get even a handful of students to read this...
43:06 to: Peggy George
bye teacherdebra!
43:09 to: Peggy George
43:11 to: Kim Caise
43:23 to: Peggy George
I'm looking for it-keep talking
43:30 to: Lee Kolbert
There is a site that allows kids to log their reading logs online
43:41 to: Maureen@bcdtech
I think it was because it was required summer reading. Make anything required and they won't like it
43:44 to: susan
Oh - we did it with American history and math together and read some others, too. They were shocked about the story, but liked it.
43:59 to: Christine B
I need to complain ehre: Worst book ever: The View From Saturday by E. Kronenberg..... ew..... horrible lesson
44:00 to: Lee Kolbert
44:22 to: Peggy George
not sure which link
44:26 to: clinds
Has anyone used something like Shelfari with students so they can have online book discussions?
44:28 to: Peggy George
google sites are a bit of a problem
44:34 to: Peggy George
need to log in to see them
44:44 to: Maureen@bcdtech
@susan- ours do it too- for Am History.... it's the required thing that always seems to make them hate a book
44:44 to: Peggy George
we can't see it
45:19 to: Kim Caise
45:20 to: Peggy George
we have to log in to see it
45:23 to: Lee Kolbert
no, it's telling us to log in
45:25 to: Len H
type it in the chat and we can get to it
45:43 to: Lisa Mellen
tech group in our school said "no Google" except to "google" Ugh
45:47 to: Len H
45:51 to: Peggy George
we could see that in app sharing
46:03 to: zmidler
Can she upload the form to Google Templates, Forms, Student and Teachers? Tell us the name? Or, is there an easier way?
46:24 to: Maureen@bcdtech
Good idea zmidler- uploading to a template
46:26 to: Lee Kolbert
Do students enter info from school?
46:29 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Yeah, The Book Whisper is now on my PC Kindle. Thanks for sharing that with us Karen.
46:33 to: Peggy George
what do the kids say about Book Whisperer?
46:48 to: Len H
Thank you, Karen :)
46:54 to: Peggy George
great! thanks Karen!
46:57 to: Lee Kolbert
when do students log their books?
46:58 to: Martin
great tool for reading encouragenent. Can I borrow that?
47:10 to: zmidler
We did too!
47:10 to: Peggy George (McTeach: Using Google Apps Wiki)
47:20 to: butrflygirl
@Nancy If you went through our school furtal to get to we probably would be able to buy a whiteboard already :)
47:54 to: clinds
Can you edit google docs on an iPad yet? I think I saw something about this...
47:56 to: Tom Krawczewicz
Love the comic strip on that wiki!
48:12 to: Peggy George
we'll show you the google apps screencast here in app sharing
48:42 to: Angela (kyteacher)
So wish we would move to GoogleApps.
48:47 to: zmidler
Yes, you can edit GApps on iPads and Droids
48:58 to: Kim Caise
49:09 to: aunttammie
I saw Leo Laporte demonstrate editing google apps on the ipad, but I could not make it work.
49:14 to: Peggy George
try again
49:17 to: reba
Teachers can use to protect them also.
49:18 to: Martin
this isleaving no gadget behind
49:20 to: Peggy George

49:36 to: Kim Caise

49:37 to: Kim Caise
49:38 to: Peggy George
49:50 to: aunttammie
not seeing it here
49:55 to: Laura Sheehy
see a blank page
49:58 to: Kim Caise
49:59 to: sarahjane
@zmidler just Gapps can be editted - is there a app for that?
49:59 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@reba I use with my 4th graders. They are loving it.
50:03 to: Martin
still white screen
50:03 to: aunttammie
page is blank
50:08 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
I see it fine.
50:11 to: Angela (kyteacher)
I see it
50:13 to: Lisa Mellen
I see it
50:13 to: Kim Caise
keep going, it may take some time to load for toher
50:14 to: Tom Krawczewicz
I see it
50:16 to: butrflygirl
I see it
50:18 to: Peggy George
may be your java version needs updating
50:18 to: roxanne clement
i see seventh grade randomness
50:22 to: Len H
I see it fine.
50:23 to: Delbusch
I have my life as reader
50:24 to: Melissa DeWitt
I see it
50:30 to: Peggy George
you'll be able to see it in your browser too
50:31 to: reba
I see the web tour
50:32 to: Len H
Kim's link works
50:48 to: roxanne clement
50:48 to: Lee Kolbert

51:01 to: Peggy George
Kim want to bring up the google screencasts now
51:09 to: Lee Kolbert
she's back
51:21 to: Peggy George
we want to see the google apps screencast :-)
51:28 to: zmidler
@ ISTE Apple made an announcement about iPad support for GApps --try this link
51:32 to: Martin
thanks. I'm on the road and on mobile which slows down my interaction
51:32 to: roxanne clement
its the weekend
51:36 to: Peggy George
51:40 to: Peggy George
Kim will bring it up
52:07 to: Peggy George
this is such a great idea! have the kids create screencasts to learn about google apps!
52:10 to: aunttammie
@zmidler thank you That should help
52:25 to: Maureen@bcdtech
I had a teacher refuse to accept a shared doc from a student this year... wanted it printed and handed in. It'll take a while
52:31 to: Peggy George
you may want to view this in default layout so it's bigger
52:32 to: Martin
that is a capitol idea.
52:35 to: Peggy George
seeing it now
52:35 to: roxanne clement
are they public to share with our kids?
52:51 to: roxanne clement
hoe terrific
52:52 to: Christine B
Whic Screen Cast application is that?
52:56 to: McTeach (Karen)
Is everyone hearing it ok?
53:01 to: Peggy George (Last year’ 7th graders’Google Apps Screencasts)
53:03 to: zmidler
We have a mouse squad that could take this on as an assignment
53:03 to: Laura Sheehy
53:03 to: Martin
ok here
53:06 to: TheHomeworkDog
53:06 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Great job. Getting kids to teach the teachers should be happening in all schools.
53:09 to: Peggy George
you can view all of these screencasts on that link
53:09 to: Maureen@bcdtech
It's fine here Karen
53:16 to: McTeach (Karen)
53:35 to: Martin
that confirms the iNtergenerational component.
53:43 to: Peggy George
teachers don't need to worry about teaching new tools! the kids can do an amazing job!!
53:51 to: Christine B
What's th screen cast program?
53:59 to: sarahjane
What did you record the audio?
54:10 to: McTeach (Karen)
Christine...I believe it was Screenflow
54:20 to: Peggy George
what is your favorite screencasting tool? Many teachers love jellybean :-)
54:21 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
I use Jing.
54:22 to: Christine B
54:32 to: clinds
Jing works great with students.
54:42 to: McTeach (Karen)
I haven't used JellyBean
54:50 to: aunttammie
Lucky have macs in school!
54:55 to: McTeach (Karen)
Jing is easy, I'm thrilled Screentoaster is back!
54:59 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Never heard of jeelybean before, Peggy.
55:01 to: Martin
thats great. What is their URLs?
55:02 to: sarahjane
are they all free & do I have to download?
55:11 to: Maureen@bcdtech
I had 4th graders creating sites this week- they got it. One had it set up and all his pages made with a little blurb on each one in 30 minutes- even surprised me
55:24 to: reba
which program are the students using for the screen capturing?
55:31 to: clinds
Jing is free and easy to embed in blogs or in moodle which I really like.
55:34 to: McTeach (Karen)
Reba...this is Screenflow
55:48 to: Maureen@bcdtech
I like screenr- requires a twitter acct- but you dont have to tweet them. up to 5 min long
55:49 to: reba
56:05 to: reba
is it free and for Mac and PC?
56:09 to: Christine B
This student speaks well and professionally!
56:15 to: aunttammie
Screenflow is great, but it does cost $, and I think is only for Mac
56:28 to: Peggy George
love those screencasts! watch the rest of them later in your browser
56:32 to: sarahjane
can you have students use google sites? Do you have to have an email?
56:50 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Jing has a free version that allows you to do a 5 minute screencapture on a PC.
56:51 to: Peggy George
yes screenflow is for Macs and it is about $99. Fabulous tool for screencasting
57:04 to: Peggy George
there are many free screencasting tools online though
57:08 to: Maureen@bcdtech
Screentoaster is back online... I used to use it a lot too, as well as Jing and screenr. I have camtasia on my home computer- it costs$, but wonderful program
57:20 to: Kim Caise
you can use your gmail address and add + before the @ sign with a name and student emails funnel through your gmail address
57:35 to: Angela (kyteacher) 1
Hooray for Screentoaster!
57:35 to: Len H
57:36 to: Peggy George
oh I want it to keep going!!
57:47 to: peterbbb
New to this. Someone give me a quick overview of what is happening, please.
57:51 to: Tom Krawczewicz
This has been great! Thanks so much.
57:55 to: Peggy George
stay online and Karen will keep talking to us and will answer questions after the official closing :-)
57:58 to: Len H
I wish we could keep going as well.
58:00 to: Lee Kolbert
Thanks so much!
58:04 to: sarahjane
how many sites can I have with my google account?
58:04 to: Maureen@bcdtech
Hey Karen- can you talk about how you get better content in comments on blogs.. I get a lot of redundant stuff, and "and yeah..."
58:11 to: Peggy George
she has so much more to share!!!!
58:13 to: McTeach (Karen)
Here's my email address if anyone has questions:
58:18 to: patti r 1
they cant create google docs if under 13 though right? that is the age to have a google account
58:22 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
I don't let my students use the + thingy to access Google becuse I feel like I'm breaking rules.
58:23 to: Delbusch
Good ideas. Thank you. Love the student work
58:39 to: zmidler
Three BIG ideas and I cant wait to promote and share these ideas w/teachers--a little bait goes along way--want those picts for paper blogging
58:49 to: Nancy Sharoff
@plnaugle you would be breaking TOS....if you did the + thing
58:53 to: McTeach (Karen)
Woo-hoo!! Discovery Fall Virtual Conference!!
58:57 to: Maureen@bcdtech
I just read Kathleen Cushmans book... Fires in the Mind
58:59 to: Christine B
Karen, how do you assess your students (tests) ... Google Docs??
59:01 to: Peggy George
59:12 to: Laura Sheehy
Discovery Fall Conference!!!!
59:21 to: Peggy George
hope you're all planning to go to the DEN Virtual Conference! It's free and all day!!
59:21 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)

59:35 to: Maureen@bcdtech
I have google apps for all my kids grades 4-9 and got parent permission.... you can do that
59:39 to: McTeach (Karen) glad you got something from today!!!
59:47 to: glumb
Excellent info McTeach! Thanks.
59:51 to: Peggy George
Matt is going to talk about project based learning and design thinking. Has some great ideas he's doing with that with his students
59:58 to: zmidler
Thank you Karen--incredibly sharing--you have me smarter
59:58 to: McTeach (Karen)
Thank you, @glumb!
1:00:03 to: clinds
@sarahjane - From what I understand it is best to get your school, if you can, to set up Google Apps for Ed. This way you can turn on/off gmail and other things that come with a google account. You ca
1:00:03 to: clinds
n also oversee usernames and passwords. I'm trying to get my tech department to sign up. If you're using Google Apps for Ed, I think it is okay to use with students under 13. Is this correct?
1:00:05 to: Laura Sheehy
Great job McTeach! Thanks!!!!
1:00:12 to: McTeach (Karen)
Thank you, Laura!
1:00:14 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Thank you, Karen. Great ideas to share with others too. You were awesome.
1:00:19 to: Maureen@bcdtech
@clinds yes, you're correct
1:00:32 to: McTeach (Karen)
Thanks Paula!!
1:00:35 to: Peggy George
if your survey doesn't pop up (happens sometimes) just send me an email and I'll make sure you get your certificate
1:00:43 to: Peggy George
1:00:43 to: roxanne clement
Karen, your ideas are so timely and step by step clear to implement...terrific!
1:00:45 to: Nancy Sharoff
Thanks McTeach -- so glad I was home and able to catch the show.
1:00:46 to: zmidler
We use GApps Edu w/K-8 students
1:00:56 to: Len H
Karen, thank you so VERY much for sharing with us today!
1:01:03 to: Peggy George
nothing like taking a walk with PD on your ipod :-)
1:01:05 to: McTeach (Karen)
Thanks for coming Nancy!
1:01:05 to: Lisa Mellen
Thanks Karen, I can't wait to get back to schools and try these ideas
1:01:09 to: Laura Sheehy
applause to both!!! :)
1:01:11 to: Maureen@bcdtech
Thanks Karen!
1:01:12 to: zmidler
We issues student accts at registration that way if a teacher wants to use the GApps tools they are good to go
1:01:19 to: Christine B
When is the Discovery Fall Conference?
1:01:19 to: Matt Huston
Nifty ideas, thanks!
1:01:24 to: Nancy Sharoff
@McTeach -- now can I go take my 4 inch heels off? ROFL
1:01:27 to: TheHomeworkDog
I missed most of this, but want to see it. When will the recording be available?
1:01:33 to: Peggy George
Karen tell us about your homework dropbox
1:01:34 to: Janet
Thanks Karen, Have you ever tried a NING? I will invite you to mine. The kids love it.
1:01:34 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
October 23 from 9-3 EST.
1:01:34 to: McTeach (Karen)
Yes, Please, Nancy!!!
1:01:40 to: Christine B
Thank you!!!
1:01:42 to: McTeach (Karen)
Oh, right, Thanks Peggy!!
1:01:52 to: zmidler
Again, how do we access reading log form and paper blogging images?
1:01:59 to: gail boone
yes Bodie, it's me
1:02:00 to: Maureen@bcdtech
We're a PC school, so using gapps with Aviary tools included makes it so much easier to make music like garageband
1:02:06 to: Victoria
Thank you Karen from Uruguay!
1:02:16 to: Nancy Sharoff
Thanks guys for hosting this -- wonderful session. <hobbling off>
1:02:25 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Hi @Victoria for Uruguay.
1:02:27 to: aunttammie
My homework dropbox is it!

1:02:41 to: Victoria
Hi Paula!
1:02:41 to: sarahjane
this was a great session
1:02:46 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Bye, Nancy.
1:02:55 to: gail boone
Bodie, I agree, I have a teacher wanting to do classroom blogs now
1:03:27 to: gail boone
I like the practice blog activity
1:03:28 to: Kim Caise
thanks @laura
1:03:28 to: patti r 1
I use classblogmeister and all posts and comments are approved first by teacher
1:03:31 to: Peggy George
when Karen gets the images uploaded to Flickr I'll add the link to our archives along with the recording and add it to the link
1:03:34 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@auntieammie Yes, Edmodo is a great tool to use with my 4th graders. They don't need an email account to access.
1:03:53 to: gail boone
I do too
1:04:08 to: zmidler
Losing access to gmail is a great deterrent for bad online behavior
1:04:14 to: Peggy George
helpful to hear possible consequences!
1:04:18 to: clinds
I love the texting poems but once students do this assignment do they want to use text lingo on their blogs or in their comments. Do you let them ever or do they need to use more formal language?
1:04:34 to: Peggy George
great question clinds!
1:04:44 to: zmidler
I wonder if you could text lingo Shakespeare?
1:04:46 to: sarahjane
is access controlled by the teachers? Is that a google apps thing?
1:04:50 to: Angela (kyteacher) 1
Wow...very fortunate.
1:05:14 to: Len H
Yes, Romeo & Juliet is a hoot in text
1:05:17 to: Laura Sheehy
lucky you!!!!
1:05:22 to: Christine B
1:05:28 to: Peggy George
I'll bet you could zmidler :-) wouldn't that be a fun way to learn Shakespeare?!

I teach in a low socio-ecomonic class and over 75% of my students have computer access.
1:05:35 to: Christine B
We got the old computers from the lab... old TV type monitors....

I've just seen students use text lingo when using discussion forums in Moodle and the comment quality seems to go downhill.
1:05:40 to: Len H
It is great!
1:05:56 to: Martin
will this be archived?

yes this will be archived very soon
1:06:12 to: Kim Caise

1:06:18 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Students need to learn what language to use where. That is a real life skill these days.
1:06:20 to: roxanne clement
love that distinction...teaching digital citizenship too
1:06:22 to: Angela (kyteacher) 1
@zmidler Would love to see a Twitter account for a play. Have students reduce it to a series of tweets.
1:06:25 to: Martin

great Karen!
1:08:57 to: Christine B
Karen, how flexible are you with digital assignments? Parents always give me excuses about down internet or " Your website wasn't working".. (lie)... how do you stick to deadlines?
1:09:00 to: TheHomeworkDog
Thanks for sharing!

how about the Fablevision project?? (Mapping the World by Heart: Fablevision-An Innovative Approach to Learning Geography)
1:09:22 to: sarahjane
can you use googleapps in Canada?
1:09:45 to: Peggy George
that's so funny! lost train of thought when car drove by :-) sounds like me!
1:09:52 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
One way to get kids to do homework, is they can't get computer time until their draft is written. It is working great with my 4th graders.
1:10:03 to: Peggy George
yes you can use them in Canada but don't know about your own school/district
1:10:14 to: Peggy George
Aviva Dunsiger uses google apps in Canada
1:10:19 to: roxanne clement
i just heard that last week, patriot act stuff
1:10:25 to: Laura Sheehy
love that idea Paula!

Beauty of GApps Edu--all students get accounts including email/gmail
1:10:37 to: patti r 1
there are Canadian teachers using Classblogmeister by David Warlick
1:11:31 to: Christine B
brilliant.... geez.... what about correcting grammar or spelling? do you insert COmments via Word?
1:11:41 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@Laura Sheehy It works great because if the draft isn't done for class, while others are posting, the no homework kids are off the computers gettting their drafts finished.
1:11:41 to: Maureen@bcdtech
I insert comments in google docs to grade/assess, ask for more from them
1:11:46 to: Peggy George
you can see how Aviva uses google apps in her first grade classroom in Canada here (plus much more)
1:12:14 to: Peggy George
what a great way to add comments to student work!
1:12:15 to: Maureen@bcdtech
I like having kids share their docs- works very well.
1:12:24 to: Christine B
Sre your back doesn't hurt from lugging papers around!
1:12:49 to: zmidler
Google offers on-going GApps Edu webinars that explain the tools and how they work in a school environment--you definitely need to get your IT people involved in this effort
1:12:52 to: Peggy George
yes Christine! wonderful bonus! not lugging papers back and forth to school
1:13:11 to: aunttammie
I love having Edmodo, but I have to be careful...sometimes I forget I have homework if I don't have all those papers to lug around!
1:13:15 to: Christine B
I'm hogging the questions.,... sorry!!!
1:13:30 to: Kim Caise
no problem christine! keep asking!
1:13:58 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
I am correcting my students posts right now before I put them up for public viewing. I am now setting up peer editing groups to help each other because I don't want to fix all of their mistakes.
1:14:08 to: Peggy George
also helps to teach them not to procrastinate and leave it to the last minute--tech issues may happen and it's not a good excuse
1:14:11 to: Christine B
What about online testing???? That's my goal for this year!!!
1:14:36 to: aunttammie
I think parents have calmed down a lot about tech in the last few years

I use the Scott Foresman math series and use their test creator. My students are taking their tests on the computers in the lab. Lov eit.
1:15:08 to: Maureen@bcdtech
Now if we could only get rid of the 60 pounds of books the kids lug around.... it's coming- more ereaders and texts
