Happy New Year Peggy!

04:23 - Peggy George
Happy New Year to you Shamblesguru! Hope you're feeling better! The flu is NO fun!

04:25 - Wes Fryer
ah - I like that option to do both multiple choice as well as yes/no

04:25 - @bcdtech Maureen
I work with teachers of that age group- but I don't directly teach them

04:38 - Peggy George
awesome! a bunch of MS teachers!

04:48 - Peggy George
Hi Carolyn! So glad you could join us!

04:53 - aunttammie

05:27 - Peggy George
absolutely @aunttammie! they have reources for all grade levels :-)

05:27 - carolynjacobs
Yes, absolutely. you should see an application for 9th grade

05:32 - Wes Fryer
but I know Miguel Guhlin has used it with teachers in San Antonio, and he's really liked it!

05:33 - Kim Caise
6th grade math and technology was my favorite

05:51 - Peggy George
I LOVE PBS Learning Media!!!! so many fabulous resources, lessons, videos and more!!

Carolyn will be telling you how to register soon :-)

06:25 - Peggy George
Hi Rhonda! Welcome!!!

06:29 - @bcdtech Maureen
I'm pretty sure I did- they recently changed the registration for PBS- combined a couple things

06:37 - Peggy George
If you don't have a classroom you can't answer that :-)

06:44 - @Rhonda
Hi Peggy Happy New Year :)

06:49 - @bcdtech Maureen
should be a sometimes if I'm lucky answer

06:50 - Carolyn Stanley
I love PBS - television, radio -I registered some time ago. I'm not sure I remember how. I think it's pretty straight forward. I will research it.

12:20 - Kim Flack 2
hi :) so sorry I'm a bit late - connectivity issues today

12:40 - Peggy George
We have an amazing site with bonus resources on our AZ PBS LM site!

13:06 - Erica Rabner, WGBH
WGBH are the station call letters - it officially stands from Western Great Blue Hill but I only learned that from wikipedia :)

13:10 - Peggy George
love that these resources are available internationally because they are totally internet based

13:22 - Peggy George
thanks Erica!

13:25 - trish
PBS is amazing. I am using resources now about the Lewis and Clark expedition.

13:28 - @bcdtech Maureen
funny to be redirected - no TV where I live (unless you pay $ for sat dish) hated the switch to digital- lost all my fuzzy stations- went to nothing.

13:45 - Peggy George
Erica is Carolyn's colleague at WGBH and will be helping to answer questions in the chat today :-)

14:19 - Peggy George (Collections in PBS LearningMedia)

14:33 - @bcdtech Maureen
love interactive stuff for kids- always want more

14:41 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Are resources tagged with Common Core standards?

14:46 - Janet P
eMail address?

14:47 - Erica Rabner, WGBH

14:48 - Peggy George
yes Paula

14:53 - Erica Rabner, WGBH

15:02 - Kim Flack 2
az offers some free software downloads in the new noteable areas in PBS LM - from Lakeshore

15:04 - Erica Rabner, WGBH
You can search by standard -- Carolyn will get there soon!

15:08 - Peggy George
the search function really works well and identifies the type of media each item is

15:24 - Peggy George
this is why you want to register!!! it saves your favorites :-)

15:36 - Peggy George
Hi nikki! Great to see you!

15:38 - Kim Flack 2
the folders and sharing features are awesome!

15:48 - @bcdtech Maureen
Ilike the lengthh of the clips- works really well

15:51 - Kim Flack 2
even mashable clips!!

15:52 - aunttammie
reminds me of Discovery site...but this is FREE!!!

16:16 - Kim Flack 2
@aunttammie -- free

16:36 - Peggy George
thanks Kim Flack! I added the AZ LM toolkit to our links today because they are fabulous! Couldn't put it in the Livebinder because it wouldn't load but it is in the blog post.

16:39 - Wes Fryer
the "Get Your Tech On" clips look great for my 4th / 5th grade STEM students :-)

16:45 - Peggy George
Hi LucianeCurator! Welcome!

17:01 - Peggy George (Collections in PBS LearningMedia)

17:04 - Kim Flack 2
@Peggy -- thanks :) Mark Becker has done a great job with the toolkit

17:06 - Carolyn Stanley
So glad I joined the session today. I just logged in with my old school email, no longer valid, which is why I haven't been receiving updates! Yeah, I'm back in the loop.

17:12 - Peggy George
that's the Collections link I just posted

17:26 - Peggy George
hooray Carolyn Stanley!

17:43 - @plnaugle (Paula)
We did a virtual field trip of our state capitol last year with our PBS station here in Louisiana. It was great.

17:44 - Peggy George
these collections are amazing!! She'll show us a couple of them so you'll get the idea

18:07 - Peggy George (PBS Learning Media home page)

18:08 - Kim Flack 2
The Collections are AMAZING!! Caroline and her team are pros -- I am so fortunate we have the opportunity to work with her

18:10 - Carolyn Stanley
I will make sure that my teachers at my school are still aware of these resources.

18:42 - Peggy George
all of these links are in the Livebinder so you can easily find them

18:54 - Peggy George

18:56 - Kim Flack 2
Engineering webinars coming up soon too

18:58 - Carolyn Stanley
This is a really great site for students who wish to pursue individual learning.

19:11 - Wes Fryer
that's awesome @plnaugle - did your students create some videos afterwards about the field trip?

19:16 - Kim Flack 2
@Caroyln -- absolutely!

19:17 - Peggy George
can't wait for the engineering webinars! Carolyn will talk about them later :-)

19:26 - aunttammie
LOL...I tried to set up an account, and apparently I already have one! One of those sites I find and forget about!

19:45 - Peggy George
I love the way the resources invite students to interact with the content

19:56 - @plnaugle (Paula)
No @wes we didin't but next time I do a virtual field trip they will create some. Great idea.

20:09 - Peggy George (Next Generation Science Standards Collection-Teaching Engineering Design Through Media)

20:10 - Carolyn Stanley
@aunttammie - I'm so glad I was able to remember my old login info so I could get in and update it. So much to learn; so little time:)

20:18 - Peggy George (Math at the Core: Middle School Collection)

20:38 - Peggy George
wow!! 400 plus resources for MS math :-)

20:53 - Kim Caise
amazing resources and collections

20:56 - Erica Rabner, WGBH
There are 81 resources currently on PBS LM covering 10 domains!

21:41 - Carolyn Stanley
I just visited school and met with our math CMT tutor and some of his students. I am sure they will be glad to use these math resources. I will also make sure our tech teacher learns about these engineering resources.

21:48 - Peggy George

22:08 - Erica Rabner, WGBH
Glad to hear it, Carolyn!

22:10 - Kim Flack 2
Great way to learn the new national sci standards!!

22:23 - Carolyn Stanley
This is VERY exciting!

22:25 - aunttammie
@Carolyn Very True :)

22:49 - @bcdtech Maureen
I don't understand how the nextgen standards and commoncore fit together. It seems like with CC you are supposed to bliend the science, etc into the ELA and math- read about it- not do it.

22:51 - Carolyn Stanley
I would like to learn more about engineering, myself.

22:52 - Peggy George
so glad you can share these resources with your former school Carolyn! They will love you forever!

22:57 - Peggy George
as if they didn't already!

23:09 - Wes Fryer
Engineers apply science, math and technology to solve problems

23:16 - Sheri 2
innovative thinkers

23:20 - Peggy George
design inventions

23:29 - @bcdtech Maureen
engineers are wonderers- they wonder how things work- or could work

23:36 - aunttammie
I think of engineers as very literal people...they don't get jokes.

23:37 - Peggy George

23:37 - Eileen K
Creative & collaborative

23:42 - Wes Fryer
I think most engineers collaborate a lot

23:43 - Sheri 2

23:44 - Kim Flack 2

23:48 - Carolyn Stanley
@Eileen - yes!

24:10 - Carolyn Stanley
I love the fact that many libraries are now including maker spaces.

24:12 - Sheri 2
outside the box

24:17 - Peggy George
we've been to the webinars and know how important collaboration is! the last Discovery Ed webinar discussed this for the students

24:25 - genemac 1
plastic pen protectors in the pocket -:)

24:25 - @Rhonda
I would love to read more and hear more from those types of thinkers :) Makes an interesting story and discussion

24:35 - trish
Have been listening to NPR series on "Take-Away" and now realize the international collaboration that goes into setting standards for engineers.

24:43 - Peggy George (2374 resources on PBS LearningMedia for Middle School Literacy)

24:52 - Peggy George
those are the MS Literacy resources

25:38 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Started my after school 20 Hours of Coding Club this week with my 4th graders. They are loving it. :)

25:44 - Peggy George
really appreciative of the organizations that sponsor these resources so we can access them for free!

25:53 - Erica Rabner, WGBH
@Rhonda - you might like these videos

love those roller coasters!

26:09 - @Rhonda
Thank You Erica :)

26:16 - Peggy George
kids really get hooked with the roller coaster activities!

26:17 - Kim Caise
lots of physics and math with roller coasters

26:23 - Wes Fryer
@trish Is that NPR series "The Takeaway?"

26:26 - @bcdtech Maureen
@paula- worked again with 3rd graders this week- we used light bot- online version- kids found it really really challenging- and fun

26:30 - Kim Caise
especially when they get to design their own

26:42 - Peggy George
@Paula so excited to hear about your after school coding club!!! Awesome!

27:15 - Peggy George
every subject area and grade level available!!

27:24 - Peggy George
no questions yet Carolyn :-)

27:45 - Peggy George
you can view on browser or here in web tour

27:49 - @bcdtech Maureen
@Paula- I also tried this week to have them reflect on their work using a basic 3-2-1 form at the end of the class. Some good reflection from 8 yr olds

28:08 - Peggy George
it should start playing automatically for you

28:32 - carolynjacobs
it's playing fine for me

28:37 - Peggy George
Hi Oronoque! Great to see you!

28:39 - Eileen K
Does not seem to be supported on my ipad

28:50 - Peggy George
thanks Carolyn--looks like all is good :-)

29:00 - Oronoque
Hi Peggy. The time escaped me:(

29:23 - Peggy George
love the smiles on their faces when they talk about how smart they are :-)

29:28 - aunttammie
was the frog alive?

29:31 - Lorie Moffat

Frozen frogs in NYC

29:57 - @bcdtech Maureen
don't they sleep in the mud over the winter?

29:59 - Peggy George

30:03 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Haha @Doug Henry.

30:14 - Peggy George
it's really amazing

30:21 - aunttammie
I've never seen frozen frogs in my grocery store...where do you shop!

30:23 - Peggy George
something I didn't know before I watched the video

30:33 - Peggy George
Hi Sheri! So glad you could join us!

30:35 - @bcdtech Maureen
not hibernating - what is the process called?

30:42 - Kim Caise
kind of like hibernating bears

30:42 - Oronoque
wow, like when some people survive in sub-freexing temps

30:43 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Hi @Sheri. :)

30:54 - Oronoque

30:55 - Erica Rabner, WGBH
It's one of my favorite videos/lessons -

I'm sure that list of literacy strategies looks very familiar to all of you :-)

31:03 - @LucianeCurator @web20education
Dear Peggy, Kim, Paula, Lorie I wish all of you a fruitful year 2014 :)

31:15 - Peggy George
thanks for that link Erica! I'll add it to the Livebinder

feel free to type your questions here in the chat and Lorie will ask Carolyn for you during Q/A

32:25 - Peggy George (Cowbirds Teacher’ Guide)

32:57 - @bcdtech Maureen
are they the ones that take over other birds' nests?

32:59 - Wes Fryer
Erica are you on Twitter?

33:04 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Do they have a symbiotic relationship with cows?

33:05 - aunttammie
They ride around on cows and eat bugs that the cow raises as she walks

33:05 - Peggy George (Collections in PBS LearningMedia)

33:06 - Jane Z
Never heard of cowbirds!

33:28 - Peggy George
not nice!!! aggressive birds :-)

33:38 - Oronoque
people who kidnap children to raise as their own

Rain beats on my windows.

34:38 - Tammy Moore
My students love "My calculator hates me"

34:41 - @plnaugle (Paula)
The wind whispered through the trees.

34:44 - Peggy George
thanks all!!! fun!

34:45 - Sheri 2
stars danced in the sky

34:47 - @bcdtech Maureen
plants love the sun

35:22 - Jane Z
@Tammy Moore - for my students it's "The computer hates me!"

35:31 - Peggy George
hahaha Jane Z

35:33 - @bcdtech Maureen
@Tammy- my students always said that their computer hated them.

35:53 - @bcdtech Maureen
@Jane Z :-)

35:57 - Peggy George
those vocabulary words are really helpful

35:57 - aunttammie
wondering how to set up a class...will it accept CSV files, or do I need to put each name in separately?

36:07 - Peggy George
great question aunttammie!

36:17 - Wes Fryer
@auntammie I was wondering about that too...

36:29 - Erica Rabner, WGBH
Separately but if you'd like help with registration you can email your class list to

36:39 - Peggy George
didn't think of the cowbirds as being lazy but that makes sense

36:54 - Peggy George

37:07 - Peggy George
click on play

37:24 - @bcdtech Maureen
just seeing black screen

37:35 - Peggy George
open in your browser if it hasn't loaded for you

37:43 - @bcdtech Maureen
will do

38:18 - Wes Fryer
this is amazing!

38:22 - Peggy George
just a minute long

38:35 - Peggy George
you can view it in the Livebinder too

38:51 - aunttammie
reminds me of some students!

38:53 - Tammy
These are great resources.

39:08 - Peggy George
really interesting content for the kids yet meeting many standards!

39:09 - Kim Caise
they have curriculum series that follows along with some of their documentaries. those are fabulous!

39:30 - Tammy
Let's see if I'm understanding this correctly. My students can see some of these resources for free correct?

39:40 - Kim Flack 2
all of the content is free, yes

39:47 - Kim Caise
free, absolutely

39:50 - Tammy

39:54 - Peggy George
We'll ask Carolyn to explain how you register your students during Q/A

39:56 - Kim Flack 2
students can login too

39:59 - Erica Rabner, WGBH
All free, they just need to register!

40:37 - Peggy George (2374 resources on PBS LearningMedia for Middle School Literacy)

40:40 - Sheri Edwards

40:48 - aunttammie
Maybe there is a class code that kids over 13 can use to register themselves in to my classes. That works pretty well.

40:57 - Peggy George
Hi Antoinette! Welcome!

41:09 - @plnaugle (Paula)
So students under 13 can't register? Can teacher set up a class under a teacher dashboard?

41:16 - Wes Fryer
that cowbird video was from a longer NOVA scienceNOW series on "Gangster Birds" - nice!

41:34 - Peggy George
yes they can be registered--Carolyn will explain. All built into the system

41:49 - aunttammie
@Paula, I'm sure they can...but I think if they are under 13 you have to do it on most sites.

42:03 - Oronoque
When my Dad told me the story of Goldilocks, he said that she ran away from the three bears so fast that her feet dug out a trench creating the Mississippi River.

42:17 - @bcdtech Maureen
@Paula- there's more infor

42:24 - Peggy George

42:24 - Carolyn Stanley
Sorry - away for a bit. My son called. I just want to remind everyone that while this content is "free," it is available primarily because of public contributors. Let's all support our local PBS stations.

42:35 - Peggy George
same wave length Maureen! Thanks!

42:37 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Yes, @aunttammie. I only use sites with my 4th graders that allow we to register them under my teacher account.

42:53 - @bcdtech Maureen
I would like to know about sending in a csv file and what the headers should be.

42:56 - Doug Henry
How well does the website work with tablets?

43:10 - Peggy George
you don't use real email addresses for students under 13

43:11 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Thanks @maureen and @Peggy.

43:22 - Wes Fryer
good point Carolyn!

43:26 - Erica Rabner, WGBH
@Doug - Flash interactives on PBS LearningMedia are not currently iPad or Android friendly. But we are working on it!

43:30 - Kim Flack 2
yes -- iPads and you can even use it on smart phones but not as well

43:47 - Carolyn Stanley
@Doug - I'd be interested in that, as well. Discovery Ed has gone out of its way to make things tablet friendly.

43:52 - Doug Henry
@Erica - thanks!

43:58 - Peggy George
lots of writing included in these collections!

44:00 - Wes Fryer
Use the free Puffin browser on an iPad to view Flash content!

44:54 - Peggy George
love this collection! really makes the students think about what is true

45:07 - Kim Caise
you can always use that is a bogus email domain designed for unassigned email addresses

45:33 - Kim Caise
"Example Domain. This domain is established to be used for illustrative examples in documents. "

45:37 - Carolyn Stanley
@Wes - Yes - I use the Puffin browser to watch my Korean dramas on Hulu. However, the tech supervisor at our school did not want the kids to use Puffin because they could get around the school's filtering system.

45:41 - Erica Rabner, WGBH
I typically sign up students with

this is a gr8 lesson for many reasons, including the fact that many students have prior knowledge / ideas about Pocahontas!

45:48 - Peggy George (Placing Artifacts in Time using the example of Pocahontas, exploring how historical representations change over time, and often reflect the period in which the representation was created)

45:59 - Peggy George
the timeline tool is fantastic!

46:16 - @plnaugle (Paula)
True @Kim Caise but I want my studnets to learn digital citizenship so I don't use work arounds.

47:11 - Peggy George (Survey URL - enter a drawing for an iPad)

47:21 - Peggy George

48:19 - @LucianeCurator @web20education
In my last blog post I SHARED more than 500 edtools - 2013 year in review

48:22 - @bcdtech Maureen
@ Wes I always gave gmail accts to kids from 4th and up.. current school is prrek-6- and super says no email... But many schools I have heard do offer email - gaggle or gmail with restrictions

glad to see images of females and persons of color included for STEM

50:14 - Carolyn Stanley
The art teacher at my school is still using the tutorials I made about using PhotoShop with her students. That makes me feel so good.

50:18 - Peggy George
Great video you can watch later from Allison Bolinger: Allison Bolinger -

I have seen career development/awareness at many grade levels (even early elementary)

51:07 - @bcdtech Maureen
OUr 4-6th grade kids have google accts now- we have a cart of chromebooks- but they are not allowed to use gmail- it is set up in groups so that they cannot access it- only drive and sites right now. Work in progress

51:08 - Wes Fryer
I would LOVE to see these lessons on STEM careers (as a grade 4-5 classroom teacher)

51:12 - Tammy
Career Development is becoming a focus with CCSS right now. We are just beginning to look at it.

51:23 - Carolyn Stanley
There was a much greater emphasis when there was school-to-work funding. We still hold a career fair each year, and many, many folks come into to speak to the students about career options.

51:28 - Peggy George
fantastic Carolyn! Lorie will ask questions now.

51:46 - nikki
Are all the lessons accessible to sensory challengged students?

51:47 - Peggy George
Erica answered many in the chat :-)

51:53 - Peggy George

51:55 - Kim Caise
such wonderful lessons planned and put to together!

51:58 - @bcdtech Maureen
csv file for students? Headers needed?

52:11 - trish
We have a career day for eighth graders featuring community members discussing their jobs. We might use the lessons. The format is certainly wonderful. I will introduce the site as a resource to our Integrated Arts teachers.

52:58 - Tammy Moore
If it is HTML, readers can do them.

53:02 - Carolyn Stanley
I am glad to hear you are working on making the lessons compatible with iPads - any idea of when they will be ready?

53:09 - Kim Caise

Special note about under-13 users:
Users under the age of 13 must have an account created by a teacher or authorized adult user and should be assigned the Learner role.

54:58 - Kim Caise
glad that it doesn't violate any rules for users under age 13

54:59 - Peggy George
Use same suffix for all email addresses. All email addresses should end with This is not a real email address.

55:20 - Peggy George
once students are registered they will have access to all of the resources shared by the teacher

55:31 - Kim Caise
android devices work well

55:38 - Peggy George

55:39 - Janet P

56:19 - Peggy George
Wes do you have a link for the Puffin browser?

56:21 - Carolyn Stanley
@Janet - some schools won't allow students to use Puffin.

56:25 - Peggy George
is it an app?

56:27 - Sheri Edwards
Would you add the livebinder link again? Thanks.

56:31 - Carolyn Stanley
