I get so excited when I hear Elvira speak because she is so enthusiastic about her kids and the amazing things they are doing with web 2.0 tools :-)
09:19 - Rhonda
09:25 - Peggy George
love it Paula!!
09:29 - @teachteKBeck(Kristen)
@plnaugle - I love that about edmodo!!
09:43 - Kim Caise
how exciting Paula!
10:07 - Peggy George
web 1.0 used to be exciting! but look at us now!!! so much more engaging with web 2.0--the interactive, read-write web!
10:14 - Kati
@Peggy - it is difficult to hear Elvira
10:44 - Kim Caise
there are sliders to adjust the volume just above the word video
10:47 - Peggy George
you can drag your slider for the speaker to the right to make the audio louder
10:52 - Peggy George
do you see that?
11:04 - Peggy George
top left corner where it says audio & video
11:22 - Kati
@Peggy - yes - it's more fuzzy than volume ... :-)
11:29 - Peggy George
This is such an important point about focusing on the learning and not the tool.
11:34 - Gupteswar Rao
We don't have the opportunity to teach online at present... But the tools are greta.. I already had a glimpse of each and shall be bringing up them during next workshops..
12:01 - Peggy George
sorry Kati--not sure what to say. My audio is coming through well.
12:25 - Peggy George
such great choices for us and all free!
12:27 - Larry A
Web 2.0 tools will become web 3.0 whatever that looks like - students will have to use these tools in higher education and in the world of work so using them is not only exciting for a classroom but for students development and preparedness even though new tools are being made regularly
12:50 - Peggy George
Skype really does help to flatten the world!
13:25 - Peggy George
13:29 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
My students really "get" geography due to our Skype calls with other around the country and Canada.

Google Hangout is amazing!
15:27 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)

16:13 - Peggy George
wonderful way to practice many languages
16:15 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Google Hangout allows up to 10 people to video conference at same time for FREE.
16:43 - Peggy George
and you can also stream a Google Hangout so many more people can watch the session if there are more than 10 people :-)
17:02 - @teachteKBeck(Kristen)
@Paula Let me know how it goes or I'll see on twitter! I start with kids on Tuesday and I know we have discussed this before, but we need to get our math kiddos together this year!!
17:12 - Peggy George
just getting to see them on Skype helps them to see what things they have in common

17:14 - Doug Henry
Is there any text-to-speech in Skype?
17:25 - Rhonda
17:40 - Peggy George
don't think so Doug--but you can record and convert later
17:45 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
@Doug, I don't believe that is an option in Skype.
18:12 - Karl Asher
What setup did you have to project the Skype conversation?
18:15 - Doug Henry
@pnaugle: I was thinking for live interaction - maybe even translate...
18:20 - Peggy George
guest experts are so thrilling for the students! and other students can be experts too!
18:33 - Lisa M
I used guest speakers throughout the school year. Made our learning "real world".
19:09 - Peggy George

I teach ELA, and am thinking of ways I can use Mystery Skype for that- books, authors, literary terms, poetic devices etc. Anyone ever use this for ELA?
35:03 - Peggy George
you can have a job for everyone :-)
35:10 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Try doing a Skype call to collect data from the other class to turn into graphs. Then do another Skype call to share the graphs showing the data.
35:16 - Peggy George
those are all great ideas @Doug!!!
35:17 - Rhonda
moving at the pace of the learners knowledge
35:19 - roxanne clement
great team building and collaborative skills
35:41 - Peggy George
I'll find some links for ELA mystery skype to add to the Livebinder--what grade are you?
35:51 - Tina Schmidt
@Doug We have used Skype to share poems we wrote or short plays we perform with other classes
35:58 - Kim Caise
same with virtual field trips or web conf., things must be structured so that all students are actively engaged and not just sitting there doing nothing
36:21 - Peggy George
excellent point Kim!
36:37 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
@Doug also check out Skype an Author
36:53 - Doug Montgomery

You're welcome, Lisa.

55:45 - @shamblesguru
In teacher workshops I usually use an iPad to Skype others in to the session ... I'm still blown away how well Skype work on mobile devices
55:52 - Peggy George
I added Paula's Skype site to our Livebinder :-)
56:25 - @shamblesguru
iPad connected to a projector
56:31 - Holsendorf
is there a way to get a copy of chat transcript?
56:37 - Elvira Deyamport (@Elle_Gifted)
very important to teach Digital Safety
56:51 - Peggy George
I just got a new iPad and I'm so excited by all of the things I can do with it. Skype and Facetime are amazing on it!
56:51 - Holsendorf
some great URLs have been shared
56:52 - Maria Zanetti
Hi I am new...I do not know what to do..tell me..
57:29 - @shamblesguru
... and Google Hangouts on iPad now works
57:31 - Peggy George
there was a fantastic MOOC course for teachers over the past 6 weeks about digital citizenship--great resources there and you can join anytime to access them. All free.
57:49 - Peggy George
She presented on our show last weekend
58:11 - Peggy George
watch the recording and then go exploring on her course resources for tools to teach digital citizenship :-)
58:29 - roxanne clement

58:38 - Peggy George
when you do projects like this it is easy to gain parental support for technology in schools :-)

1:02:13 - Elvira Deyamport (@Elle_Gifted)
Thanks for cooming.
1:02:21 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
@Susie, we will help you in any way we can. Can you use Skype in your classroom?
1:02:22 - Lorna Costantini
Danika will be talking about using twitter to teach Shakespeare
1:02:22 - Peggy George
Danika is doing some wonderful things with HS English students including twitter, FB, skype, Edmodo etc.
1:02:36 - Elvira Deyamport (@Elle_Gifted)
1:02:57 - Peggy George
come and share your ClassDojo experiences that week if you're using it
1:03:07 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Class Dojo is a great class management tool.
1:03:09 - Leslinks1 #2
Do want to talk to you though... have several ideas sparkinghere for the #IYGC.... bruuuhahaha
1:03:28 - Peggy George
we need you to fill out the nomination form to provide all the information--don't put it on the survey
1:03:42 - Peggy George
1:03:42 - Elvira Deyamport (@Elle_Gifted)
Thanks for all your hard work you've done with #IYGC, Les.
1:04:00 - Susie @shighley
Paula: Our district is now encouraging the use of Skype. The day before school mtgs started, I found out that my job had changed from serving 1 MS/intermediate and 3 elem to 3 MS/Intermediate. Trying to share all the great resources and support all the teachers is mind-boggling, but I need to start somewhere!
1:04:01 - SusanSi
Thanks for a great session today!
1:04:02 - Elvira Deyamport (@Elle_Gifted)
We can set up a call, Les. We'll be in touch.
1:04:06 - Peggy George
1:04:15 - Peggy George
1:04:28 - Leslinks1 #2
;-D... Yes indeed... teehee
1:04:40 - Peggy George
I've even been giving certificates to people who watched the recordings on iTunesU :-)
1:04:50 - @shamblesguru
If you don't want to install Skype on a machine (or not allowed to if a school machine) then there is a portable version of skype that will run off a USB thumb dribe
1:04:51 - Peggy George
1:05:02 - Elvira Deyamport (@Elle_Gifted)
That's wonderful, Peggy. I was about to ask if we could get certificate for viewing recordings.
1:05:03 - Peggy George
available on any mobile device that can access itunesu
1:05:39 - Elvira Deyamport (@Elle_Gifted)
Great tip, @shamblesguru
1:05:48 - Peggy George
that's right on our Archive and Resources page--right column
1:05:52 - Peggy George
1:05:58 - @SteveHayes_RB60
Thank you for a great presentation!
1:06:02 - Elvira Deyamport (@Elle_Gifted)
It's been a pleasure! Thank y'all for having me!
1:06:13 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
@Susie, yes zero in on one tool to start, and Skype offers so many great ways to connect with others. Using Skype seems to lead naturally to using other tools like, Edmodo, Today's Meet, blogs, etc.
1:06:15 - Peggy George
do you have a link for the portable version of Skype @Shambles?
1:06:33 - Peggy George
thank you all so much for being here and for sharing in the chat with all of us!
1:06:34 - Elvira Deyamport (@Elle_Gifted)
So true, Paula.
1:07:12 - Peggy George
I don't think it's available in Skype but a 3rd party tool would work--available on Macs I know
1:07:12 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Do not know of any option for that.
1:07:25 - Peggy George
there are many accessibility tools on Macs :-)
1:07:33 - @shamblesguru
1:07:42 - Peggy George
thanks!! I'll add that to the Livebinder
1:07:50 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Thanks @shambles for that link.
1:08:41 - Peggy George
yes-Reflection app is one of them
1:09:20 - Peggy George
1:09:56 - Peggy George
I have seen people present in Second Life using Skype--how about you Kim Flack?
1:10:15 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
No I have not tried any AU yet.
1:11:11 - @shamblesguru
RefectionApp has versions for Apple and Windows to wirelessly send your iPad screen wirelessly to Mac or Windows machine ... and those machines need to be connected to projector. Even though called ReflectionApp it is NOT an App .... software to go on your laptops .... you do not need to put anything on the iPad.
1:11:19 - Peggy George
I even got to see some classes Skyping with other classes right in their own building to have book talks and discussions :-)
1:11:36 - Peggy George
1:11:48 - Peggy George
Kristen Robertson and Len Horn
1:12:09 - Peggy George
great ideas Paula!
1:12:12 - Peggy George
1:12:16 - Peggy George
1:12:18 - @shamblesguru
Google Hangout is now working well to audio/video connect with up to 9 pople now ... also works on iPad and Windoz/Mac
1:12:29 - Peggy George
1:13:12 - Peggy George
that sounds like so much fun!
1:13:47 - @shamblesguru
Skype is now a BIG tool used to interview teachers for jobs in International Schools overseas .... so it is good if teachers are comfortable using Skype
1:14:10 - @shamblesguru
REALLY??? .... thought screen sgaring free
1:14:28 - Peggy George
I have heard of people using Skype for interviews--sure saves on travel money :-)
1:15:05 - Peggy George
you just have to make sure you don't have questionable things in your background in the Skype video (like a tower of wine bottles) :-)
1:15:16 - Denise Huffman
I got my job that way!
1:15:38 - Peggy George
Google Hangouts has limitations though and more bandwidth required than Skype
1:15:46 - Peggy George
wow Denise!! awesome!!!
1:15:49 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Heard through Twitter that Skype will soon be having ads on their free version.
1:16:00 - Peggy George
we should do a session on Skype job interviewing :-)
1:16:14 - @shamblesguru
Online interactive white boards
... my favourite is
1:16:23 - Peggy George
that's the name of the game Paula! ads on free services :-( the price we pay for free
1:16:26 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Yes, not happy with Microsoft for even considering that.
1:16:27 - @shamblesguru
Too late ... already Sunday here :-)
1:16:38 - Peggy George
I'll add all of the links from the chat today to the Livebinder
1:16:59 - Peggy George
we'll wrap up so all of you can get on with your day/night :-) Thank you so much for joining us!
1:17:04 - roxanne clement
