But we want to!

05:06 - Kim T AZ
Need a "kinda" option on this question

05:22 - stidmama
Not doing this, but wish I could... trying to work with school librarian to figure out more ways to integrate things like this for the language arts classes I teach.

05:22 - Peggy George
so true Kim!

05:56 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Hi Sheri. :)

05:59 - Peggy George

looks like we have Kim squared today :)

06:57 - Peggy George
great simple explanation for Common Core Standards Jon!

07:06 - Peggy George
Hi Oronoque and alison! Welcome!!

07:11 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Hi Louise and Maureen. Nice to "see" you here. :)

07:17 - Kim T AZ
Finding time....a constant question, right?

07:21 - Peggy George
that's always a big question for teachers! finding time...

07:59 - Peggy George
we are thrilled to have this team of presenters sharing with us today!

08:02 - Kim T AZ
We never ask how a teacher finds time for Math, Science, etc.

08:24 - Peggy George
so true Kim and technology is the tool to teach all subjects :-)

08:30 - Oronoque

Hey Jackie!. :)

09:30 - Peggy George (Common Core Standards website)

09:33 - Sheri 1 #2
Will we have access to these links after the live oresentation?

09:35 - Stella Maris Berdaxagar 1
Hi, sorry I am late.

09:36 - @JackieGerstein
Hi Paula:)

09:37 - Peggy George
Hi Jackie and Stella! Welcome!

09:42 - @JackieGerstein
Hi Peggy

09:53 - Lorie Moffat

10:04 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Hi Joan. Nice to "see" you here. :)

10:07 - Peggy George
Hi Joan! Great to see you!

10:43 - Peggy George
I'm excited to learn all about how they are using blogging in their classrooms!

10:55 - Kim T AZ
What does the PD (for tech integration) look like in AJ?

10:57 - Wes Fryer
New ideas and resources for student blogging!

10:57 - Sheri 1 #2
Resources to integrate into core subjects

11:09 - ezacherl
Structuring pd

11:18 - kim yancy-j.
Ideas on how to intergrate technology

11:21 - @mrsmorgansclass Louise
Want to see if there are any "missing links' I am not doing

11:26 - stidmama
This is my first full year in my own classroom(s). I am struggling to integrate tech into Language Arts instruction when the two student computers in the classroom are running on XP and the teacher computers aren't much newer.

11:26 - Peggy George
love the questions about PD!! important to all of us!

11:28 - @plnaugle (Paula)
CC and tech integration.

11:33 - Stella Maris Berdaxagar 1
I want to learn how you approach 21st Century learning to compare it with our learning environment.

11:34 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN)
How is Professional Learning encouraged - PLNs vs. traditional PD for CCSS implementation

11:38 - Kim T AZ
Has any of your teachers ever utilized paper blogging as an intro to digital blogging?

11:38 - @bcdtech Maureen
Dealing with teachers who feel overwhelmed by new cc requirements- no time

11:38 - MaryFran Lynch 1
I'm hoping to find out more about Project Based Learning and to see how primary teachers are integrating tech into the curriculum.

11:40 - clinds
Love learning about new ways that teachers are integrating technology into their classroom so I can pass along to teachers at my school.

11:46 - Peggy George
thank you all for sharing in the chat!!! so helpful!!

12:02 - Peggy George
Hi Glenn! Great to see you!!

12:12 - @plnaugle (Paula)
So great to hear Tracy's voice. Been to long. :)

12:27 - Peggy George (Tracy Watanabe: Connecting 21st Century Learning, Technology and Common Core Standards)

12:27 - Susie @shighley
We have new tech, we are doing common core: how do we implement them effectively together and become more student-centered.

12:33 - Sheri Edwards
Agree Paula, good to hear the voice...

12:34 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN)
Hi Peggy. Glad to be back in the flow :)

12:41 - Peggy George

13:01 - Peggy George
this is a great connection with PBL!

13:01 - stidmama
what susie said, too -- keeping it STUDENT centered while maintaining CC and tech integration

13:03 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)
Hi there, Paula, Peggy and Jackie! And of course my pal Tracy :) Slow in responding this a.m.

13:10 - Peggy George
Hi Rhonda and Deb! Thanks for joining us!

13:41 - @JackieGerstein
Important to understand the difference btwn PBL and just using projects. Is It Project-Based Learning, Maker Education or Just Projects?

14:03 - Peggy George
in case you missed it all of the links being shared today are in the Livebinder:

14:09 - @bcdtech Maureen
good point Jackie

14:12 - @JackieGerstein

14:17 - Peggy George
Thanks for that link Jackie!! I'll add it to the Livebinder :-)

14:20 - @JackieGerstein
Thx Maureen!

14:44 - Peggy George
that's a harder question :-)

14:55 - @bcdtech Maureen
not sure I understand the question

14:57 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN)
Educators need to see themselves more as learners and not dispensers of knowledge

14:58 - Wes Fryer
students learn better in real world contexts, solving real problems

15:06 - @mrsmorgansclass Louise
Keeping the learning relevant and engaging

15:09 - Sheri Edwards
So we are DOing skills, not just knowing what they are.

15:13 - Peggy George
both are important and common core definitely supports 21st century learning

15:14 - MaryFran Lynch 1
Engage and motivate students using the skills they are learning to use at home with gaming, etc.

15:16 - @JackieGerstein
esp relevant given this week's PISA socres

15:19 - @JackieGerstein

15:20 - ezacherl
Connecting and collaborating with a global audience will give our students different perspectives to assist with critical thinking.

15:21 - Sheri 1 #2
Students need to apply their knowledge and skills in new situations and then need to be able to draw conclusions based on their results

15:23 - Rhonda
prepares them to apply what they learn

15:23 - Kim T AZ
in common core students have an activie role in their learning

15:24 - @mrsmorgansclass Louise
Love that Glenn...dispensers o fknowledge!

15:24 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)
Audience is greater than just your classroom, sharing with the world

15:31 - kim yancy-j.
Skills can be applied all the time (life long) knowledge is when you need it

15:33 - Peggy George
great responses!!!!

15:45 - Dotty
The world is changing and schools must.

15:47 - stidmama
I think if we are talking process over just knowing facts -- because tech changes so fast we have to make it so our students feel comfortable doing their own experimentation and learning.

15:48 - Sheri Edwards
Learning has a purpose -- to share and grow with others to make the world better

15:59 - Stella Maris Berdaxagar 1
It is important because it makes transmedia literacies appliable to ubiquitous learning that goes beyond the classroom walls.

16:00 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)
Love Mystery SKype calls :)

16:03 - Peggy George (Mystery Skype)

16:05 - Kim T AZ
Just started mystery skype them!

16:09 - @JackieGerstein
Shauna is fuzzy

16:24 - @mrsmorgansclass Louise
We do one a week.

16:25 - Peggy George
Paula is a pro with mystery skypes (Mystery Location calls) :-)

16:27 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN)
Just recently ran into the Mystery Skype thing via Twitter and #caedchat

16:42 - @plnaugle (Paula)
WooHoo - Mystery Location calls get students so engaged. I use both Skype and Google Hangout to do these.

16:47 - Peggy George (Skype in the Classroom)

16:53 - Sheri 1 #2
I am interested in the mystery skypes!

17:32 - @mrsmorgansclass Louise

17:33 - @bcdtech Maureen
@pnaugle Gonna be connecting with you soon- have 4 4th grade classes doing US Regions- mystery calls would be a great way to get them excited

17:45 - Peggy George
Thanks Louise!

17:46 - @plnaugle (Paula)
My 4th graders did one with teachers attending TeachMeet NJ this year.

17:48 - Sheri 1 #2
Are we going tolearn how to create mystery skypes?

18:29 - @plnaugle (Paula)
@Maureen, looking forward to making new connections. :)

18:49 - Tracy Watanabe
@sheri, later shauna will share links and resources and how she gets started

18:54 - Peggy George
we won't drill down on how to manage a mystery skype call but all of the info is in the blog posts in the Livebinder

19:25 - Peggy George
a perfect way to meet these listening standards!

19:37 - @bcdtech Maureen
Hmmm most teachers I know think that = powerpoint :(

19:45 - Peggy George
need to click on talk :-)

19:48 - Peggy George

19:55 - Sheri 1 #2
How about how to access the green screen? Will that also be in the Livebinder?

19:55 - stidmama
:-) I am thinking as I look at this slide that the BEST PBL is gardening.

19:59 - Tracy Watanabe
Amber lost her voice... but is doing her best :)

20:14 - MaryFran Lynch 1
Wht grade was vermicomposting?

20:19 - Peggy George
3rd grade

20:24 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Check out this Google site about Mystery Location Calls for info on how to get started -

20:25 - stidmama
Math, science, history, social justice, language arts (research, writing, speaking and listening)...

20:30 - Peggy George
thanks Paula!

20:38 - Wes Fryer
thanks for that link Paula!

20:41 - Tracy Watanabe
@Sheri, I will have us add links later.

20:55 - Sheri 1 #2
Thank you!

20:55 - @bcdtech Maureen
looks like today is gonna be a good day to use one tab extension!

21:10 - @mrsmorgansclass Louise
The Global Classroom Mystery Skype page

21:17 - Peggy George
would love to add the specific blog posts about these projects so we can learn more about them

21:36 - Sheri 1 #2
That would be awesome, Peggy!

22:30 - Peggy George
I'm adding the shared links from the chat as we go along so you might need to refresh your page :-)

22:42 - Peggy George
refresh the Livebinder page :-)

23:09 - Peggy George
love this idea for Earth Day!

23:25 - @plnaugle (Paula)
My Earth Day Symbaloo webmix -

23:26 - stidmama
Okay, I finally have a decent question! How do I sort through all the wonderful resources -- even the choices I see in the livebinder are so numerous I feel overwhelmed! I really like to try new things, but I have limited time this year to explore and experiment.

23:30 - Tracy Watanabe
It was completely student driven! Talk about the impact of empowering students!

23:42 - Rhonda
Symbaloo :)

23:47 - Peggy George
that's so powerful when the students are driving the learning!

24:23 - Wes Fryer
I love this list of tech-related anchor standards! Are these in the livebinder too?

24:32 - Peggy George
amazing number of skills in these projects!

24:42 - Tracy Watanabe
@stidmama -- Decide which one area would be something you think you could implement in your classroom. Focus on that one. :) -- When going to a buffet, you can't eat everything, just focus on your favorites

25:05 - Tracy Watanabe
@Wes, I can add those in for you. :)

25:07 - Peggy George
we're going to show a short video here so if you're on an ipad you'll have to view it in your browser

25:13 - Kim T AZ
stidama - boy do I understand! Find a simple project that is doable and one that you can build upon. Small steps

25:14 - Wes Fryer
Thanks Tracy, that would be great!

25:24 - Jon Castelhano
@stidmama Start with sometning small to get your feet wet and build confidence.

25:25 - Tracy Watanabe
@Wes Sure thing!

25:34 - Peggy George
I'll upload their slides in the Livebinder :-)

25:40 - @mrsmorgansclass Louise
Traveling Rhinos

25:42 - Tracy Watanabe
@peggy Thanks!

25:45 - stidmama
@Tracy, Kim and Jon, thanks - I think my eyes are usually bigger than my "stomach!" LOL

25:50 - Peggy George
what an engaging project!!!

25:56 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)
Looking forward to watching the recording and checking out the livebinder...I have to go but appreciate all you're sharing!

26:04 - Tracy Watanabe
Thanks Joan!

26:13 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Bye Joan.

26:24 - stidmama
I love this project -- rhinos and other species really engage kids' hearts.

26:36 - MaryFran Lynch 1
Wow, I am so impressed! To think that my third graders might be able to do this type of research. Thank you for opening my eyes to the possibilities!

26:51 - Wes Fryer

26:52 - Dixie
Where is the livebinder? New to this.

26:52 - Tracy Watanabe
The students were sooooo passionate about it!

27:12 - Wes Fryer
don't you love it when students get so passionate and engaged in a project like that?! great!!

27:29 - stidmama
yay! videos! :-) my middle schoolers live for the days I have videos for them...

27:49 - Kim T AZ
color me get to use YouTube.

27:49 - Peggy George

27:50 - Lorie Moffat
Peggy will post the link for the LiveBinder again, soon.

27:54 - Wes Fryer
Dixie: The livebinder is on the post for today's show on

27:55 - Peggy George
video should be playing now

27:56 - @bcdtech Maureen
wes- I have been using as a resource

28:03 - Peggy George
couldn't post the link while it was loading :-(

28:13 - Peggy George

28:19 - Peggy George
this video is in the Livebinder too

28:37 - Peggy George

28:51 - Peggy George
I love the way they created this video!!!

28:55 - Tracy Watanabe
When you are done with the video, please write in the chat box your thoughts (and/or check the yes by your name in the polling to let us know it's done streaming)

29:13 - Kim T AZ
I have seen this before and it still ives me goosebumps

29:14 - Wes Fryer
@sfryer is watching with me: Just commented this project is good because it helps teach EMPATHY. Kids need more opportunities to practice empathy

29:30 - Wes Fryer
These kids all look so serious!

29:32 - Peggy George
love what kids can do when they feel passionate about something!!

30:11 - Tracy Watanabe
@Wes -- I work with these kiddos in 4th grade now, and the empathy piece made such an impact they they al wanted to continue researching endangered animals!

30:21 - Tracy Watanabe
When you are done with the video, please write in the chat box your thoughts (and/or check the yes by your name in the polling to let us know it's done streaming)

30:24 - Kim T AZ

30:27 - Peggy George
just finished for me

30:28 - Lorie Moffat

30:28 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN)
all done

30:29 - @mrsmorgansclass Louise

30:40 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Great video!

30:40 - MaryFran Lynch 1
Can you share the form you used to get permission from the parents to post the student pictures or send me a link to one I can use? Thanks.

30:48 - @mrsmorgansclass Louise
beautiful video.

30:55 - MaryFran Lynch 1
What an awesome project!

31:31 - Jill 1
This video could inspire lots of other projects. Thanks for sharing it.

31:32 - stidmama
Now, how do I get the kids to make their own videos? Maybe that is a place to start... we have a major novel starting in January, perhaps I could have them investigate/extend The Giver reading and make videos in some way.

31:36 - @bcdtech Maureen
will you also be talking about integrating math ccss?

31:43 - Deb 1
Great video. Love the format as it includes many student

32:10 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Allowing students to create videos, ebooks, online posters is so much more engaging than filling out worksheets.

32:20 - Peggy George
Louise your link for Mystery Skype required a log in. Do you have to join the wiki to access it?

32:21 - Wes Fryer
@MaryFran I have several different school media permission forms linked on

32:31 - Tracy Watanabe
@bctech Maureen -- No. There are tons of math standards integrated, but we chose to stay with ELA for this short preso.

32:35 - Peggy George
thanks a lot Wes!! very hepful!

32:36 - MaryFran Lynch 1
Thank you, Wes.

32:41 - @bcdtech Maureen
Thanks Tracy

32:48 - alison
I'm part of an organization called Project Kenya Sister Schools.

32:59 - Peggy George (Global Classroom Project wiki)

33:11 - Peggy George (Hello Little World Skypers

33:14 - Jill 1
Projects by Jen is fantastic!

33:15 - alison
we have sister schools in the US and Canda connect with Kenyan schools and we learn together

33:18 - @bcdtech Maureen
Projects by Jen is a great way to start

33:20 - Peggy George (Projects by Jen)

33:22 - Sheri Edwards
Google Plus community #teach2blog to connect classroom bloggers

33:25 - Jon Castelhano
@MaryFran I would suggest checking with your administation also, often there are policies in place, so you want to be aligned with them as well.

33:28 - Tracy Watanabe
lots of resources on livebinder!

33:31 - Peggy George
Jen's projects are so much fun and kids love them!!

33:50 - Peggy George
thanks for the link Sheri!!

33:52 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Doing Jen Wagner's Holiday Card Exchange right now with 29 other classrooms. Will be Skyping with some of them over next few weeks.

34:07 - @mrsmorgansclass Louise
Global awareness, promoting empathy, engagement!

34:12 - alison
we are doing cool connections in science and social studies with students in Kenya

34:15 - Kim T AZ
engagement, real world topics, buy in

34:18 - stidmama
Kids love to share their work, which gives them an authentic audience

34:21 - Peggy George
students are much more engaged with this type of learning!!! and they have a much wider authentic audience!

34:25 - MaryFran Lynch 1
Good point, Jon.

34:34 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN)
Student own their own learning process and the sense of discovery is motivating for them

34:40 - Jill 1
student excitement, ability to integrate many CCSS with technology, voice and choice, audience beyond the classroom

34:48 - Sheri 1 #2
These projects help prepare kids for jobs and technology that don't even exist yet. We NEED to taech skills that can transfer to new learning!

34:57 - kim yancy-j.
benefits are endless...collaboration, research, awareness, support, knowledge

35:03 - stidmama
I think making connections for themselves and the discussions that come out of the sharing are probably automatically at a deeper level of critical thinking than the kids would do for "required" work.

35:05 - Stella Maris Berdaxagar 1
Eno tree planting day and water´ day for instance, get students to partipate , get involved and conscious about nature resources.

35:07 - Sheri Edwards
Creating builds critical thinking skills

35:16 - alison
collaboration is essential

35:24 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN)
@peggy - audience is a great way for Ss to learn to share and listen

35:26 - Peggy George
now you see why we suggest that you stretch out the chat window :-) awesome sharing!!!

35:41 - Peggy George (Center for Innovation in Engineering and Science Education Collaborative Projects)

35:44 - kim yancy-j.
this type of earning can help kids find who they are and their purpose in life

35:44 - @plnaugle (Paula)
These types of projects cover the 4C's - creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and communication.

35:45 - stidmama
I am so excited about the ideas I am getting today. WOW. B)

35:48 - clinds
These projects allow students to extend their learning and creativity in a way that worksheets never can!

36:01 - Peggy George
great point @clinds!!!!

36:28 - stidmama
Tech is just another tool, isn't it? It's one more way to access and share information and ideas.

36:33 - Sheri Edwards
Teachers do need access to bandwidth and technology in order to do this however.

37:18 - Peggy George
blogging is a fabulous way to embrace and implement these standards!

37:36 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I use tech everyday. Thursday we got bumped off our Internet connection, had to go back to 20th century teaching style. I hated it and so did my students.

37:37 - @mrsmorgansclass Louise
our district has gone 1:1 iPads in secondary.

37:51 - Peggy George
turn your mic on :-))

37:51 - Stella Maris Berdaxagar 1
So are social networks and communities.

38:04 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN)
The connection is a work in progress. Developing this new schema is taking time.

38:04 - Sheri Edwards
mystery location calls

38:06 - stidmama
So far, my district is struggling to get really good tech into student hands. Most teachers have at least an ipad or a decent computer, but the tech available to the kids is pretty old.

38:16 - MaryFran Lynch 1
My district is just getting on board. They are supporting Edmodo and GAFE, and providing PD to teachers.

38:17 - Peggy George (Student Blogging Challenge)

38:27 - stidmama
But we are focusing a LOT on getting CC in place and thinking about how to add tech as funding is available.

:-) Stella!!

39:16 - @plnaugle (Paula)
My 4th graders use Edmodo., LearnZillion, Discvoery Ed, Glogster.EDU, Spelling City, TenMarks, and many more websites on a daily basis.

39:19 - stidmama

Hi Shelly, are you still teaching 3rd grade? We did a project together - Winn Dixie?

40:26 - Shelly Moses
Blogging has made my students truly pay attention to their writing since they have a real audience.

Share student's blog URL on Twitter using the hashtag #comments4kids to get international comments.

Hi MaryFran! I am now only in 1st grade, but I am the curriculum support for grades 3-5. Are you still 3rd?

41:48 - @mrsmorgansclass Louise
yes, it might as well say blogging LOL!

42:01 - Sheri Edwards

42:01 - Shelly Moses
Quadblogging is a great site. Have many buddies from that site.

We are just getting Google Apps going in our school -- I am hoping to be able to use that for some student collaboration.

42:05 - Peggy George
love that point!!!!

42:40 - @mrsmorgansclass Louise
blogging is a digital portfolio of students' work that can follow them from year to year.

42:42 - Tracy Watanabe
@stidmama -- Google Apps made such a difference in our district!

43:04 - MaryFran Lynch 1
@Shelly Yes, still in 3rd grade. I'd love to make a connection with a teacher in your school.

43:06 - Tracy Watanabe
@mrsmorgan -- Absolutely!

43:15 - Peggy George
these stories about the projects are sooooo helpful!!! love them!

@MaryFran I'm not sure if I still have your email.

I'm sure all of us remember the projects we did in school :-)

46:18 - stidmama
from the mouths of children...

46:23 - Tracy Watanabe
I love that

46:28 - Peggy George
these students really "get" it :-)

46:31 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Love it!

46:49 - MaryFran Lynch 1
Shelly, is the easiest way to reach me.

46:50 - Peggy George
not hearing you

46:55 - stidmama
what do the colored bars in the graph represent?

47:09 - Peggy George
audio great now :-)

47:18 - stidmama
and what is the scale on the right for?

47:48 - stidmama

48:01 - Wes Fryer
This is great action research on blogging! Did you all publish these results in a journal yet?!

48:03 - Peggy George (AJUSD Campus Blogs)

48:06 - Sheri Edwards
Engaged in daily .... If we want students to learn to write, they need to write ... for themselves. If we want students to learn to read, they need to read for their own purposes... daily

48:09 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Tracy's blog is a great resource.

48:28 - MaryFran Lynch 1
What kind of topics do the students blog on each day? Do you give them directed prompts?

48:42 - Sheri Edwards
I learn so much and get so many ideas from Tracy's blog

48:44 - Peggy George (Tracy Watanabe’ blog)

49:16 - Peggy George
such an awesome way to make connections to build your PLN!

49:35 - Peggy George (Jon Castelhano’ blog)

49:45 - Tracy Watanabe
@Wes No, we haven't published those results.

49:53 - Tracy Watanabe
Good idea.

It's nice that you are all on the same page. There are still many of us who are "Lone Wolves"

50:35 - stidmama
yes, open access can be really hard to get in many districts around my area

50:42 - Sheri Edwards
Agree, Louise. We try...

51:03 - Peggy George
great point!! this kind of collaboration is so important and especially having the district level tech coordinators and facilitators on the team with teachers

51:04 - Wes Fryer
@tracy I encourage you to link up with a higher ed prof in literacy & offer to collaborate w them on a journal article, this is SO needed in 'formal' educational research literature :-)

51:05 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN)
As a tech. coord. and someone who taught for several years, I hate hearing techs. controlling the flow of access :(

51:05 - Tracy Watanabe
@MaryFran -- If you look at Shauna's and Amber's blogs, or go to you'll see all our district blogs, and can take a look at what students write about. Keep in mind that students write the posts on Amber's and Shauna's blogs. :)

51:31 - MaryFran Lynch 1
Thank you!

51:42 - Tracy Watanabe
@MaryFran Sure thing!

Do you have librarians? Sort of disappointed that they weren't on the list to help with implementatin.

52:16 - Peggy George

52:25 - Peggy George
yes that link is in the Livebinder!

52:26 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN)
Nice presentation and interaction.

52:33 - @mrsmorgansclass Louise
Are you students using iPads?

52:36 - Peggy George
Lorie will be asking questions for us

52:39 - Kim T AZ
Thanks for an informative show that has provided resources we can all benefit from

52:39 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Wondering how much parent push back happened when you all started doing these collaborative projects and blogging?

52:41 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN)
I would love to work in your district :)

52:53 - Jill 1
Thank you for a wonderful presentation. Great ideas here!

52:59 - Sheri Edwards

I am so very grateful for today's session. I have a few ideas for after the winter break (since I will have a little time then to experiment and plan), and will go look at the livebinders to see what tools might help me.

53:32 - Tracy Watanabe
@Wes Thanks!

53:35 - Wes Fryer
So gr8 to hear about the collaboration and support in your district! Wonderful :-)

53:37 - Peggy George
I'll add all of the links to the Livebinder if you can add them to the planning doc, Tracy :-)

53:42 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Have some parents refused to allow their children to participate? If so, how do you hanlde this is your classroom?

53:49 - Peggy George
yes I'll add the slides :-)

54:06 - kim yancy-j.
good question plnaugle

54:12 - Wes Fryer
You session inspired my wife, @sfryer - to make classroom blogging her New Year's resolution for her class of 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. THANKS!

54:17 - @mrsmorgansclass Louise
they'll figure it out

54:29 - Peggy George
an excellent blog post by Scott McLeod (Scott McLeod: Blocking the Future)

54:29 - Tracy Watanabe
@Paula Not so far. Some don't want student photos published, so we make them the photographers. :)

54:41 - @mrsmorgansclass Louise
Paula, can you make their blog and digital work private?

54:51 - Peggy George
that is great news Wes!!!! She should connect with their classrooms :-)

54:53 - stidmama
:-) Thanks!

54:56 - @bcdtech Maureen
@Peggy- this has ccss for ela highlited

55:01 - @plnaugle (Paula)
@Wes Fryer tell @sfryer we'll help support her students by adding comments.

55:04 - Tracy Watanabe
@Wes Yay!!!!

55:28 - Peggy George
thank you all for sharing your links in the chat! I'll add them to the Livebinder after the show.

55:37 - @mrsmorgansclass Louise
no librians in our district either.

55:47 - Peggy George
so sad to see the loss of librarians!!

I am so excited to try some of these projects!!! And this is the first Live Classroom I have joined. I will definitely join future presentations and check the archives! What a wonderful resource you have all provided!!!

56:01 - Shelly Moses
@Paula We had a parent hesitant about allowing her son to participate this year,but after seeing what the other kids were doing that her son wasn't she agreed.

56:26 - Peggy George
Shauna tell us about your geography game

56:28 - Wes Fryer
@plnaugle I will, thanks so much! She's faced a lot of challenges getting back in the classroom with the special students she has, but she is ready to take things to the next level with classroom blogs. In January they are going 1:1 with iPads, and really haven't had any formal PD on what to do with them yet...

57:06 - Shelly Moses
We've had students create instructional videos. Any deemed up to snuff we put on Edmodo for the rest of the grade to use for reference.

57:07 - Peggy George

57:09 - Peggy George

57:13 - Peggy George
it's awesome

57:16 - Wes Fryer
@Shelly Moses that is a great story, I think those kinds of situations are common when blogging is enthusiastically embraced... then kids end up persuasively convincing their parents to let them participate

57:18 - @plnaugle (Paula)
@Shelly That is what I've experienced also. Hesitant parents get onboard once they see what the project really involves.

57:27 - Susie @shighley
That is so much fun! Students can do invidally or put on whiteboard

57:28 - Peggy George
(Shauna Hamman: Our Favorite Geography Game-GeoGuessr website brings up a random image from Google Earth Street View. You have to guess where in the world the picture was taken.)

57:55 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I love playing GeoGuesser.

57:56 - Susie @shighley
We've not had the same scene come up more than once yet!

58:00 - Wes Fryer
wonderful, wonderful session today. Thanks so much to all the @liveclass20 organizers for your work in making this PD opportunity possible!
