Who's up in B.C.? It's sunny in the Puget Sound, how up up there?

03:05 - Peggy George
so great to have people from around the world!!

03:18 - Sarah @soltauheller
rainy and overcast on Northern Vancouver island!

03:57 - stidmama
Sorry to hear that, Sarah -- we had wintry weather yesterday!

03:57 - CristinaLemos
Hi, from Leiria, Portugal

04:48 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Sign me up, Peggy. Would love to help out.

05:20 - nikki
Peggy, count me in!

06:06 - Peggy George
fantastic Paula and nikki!! I would LOVE to have you join our group!!

07:12 - Peggy George
I love Scratch but I still have a lot to learn!

07:44 - Peggy George
Tammy gave a great webinar for us on Adobe Captivate! You can view the recording to learn more about it. :-)

07:58 - Peggy George
Welcome to all of you joining us!! We're so glad you're here!

08:23 - Sarah @soltauheller
are these tools free?

08:49 - Peggy George
Lorie is going to tell us all about these tools in her presentation :-)

09:05 - aunttammie
Scratach and Captivate....I've tried both, but found both too difficult. I know Captivate is complicated, but I'm really embarrassed when I hear that kindergarteners can use Scratch!LOL!

09:11 - Peggy George
the joys of technology!!!!

09:18 - Lorie Moffat
Scratch is free, the others aren't.

09:36 - Peggy George
you'll love Lorie's tutorials on Scratch @aunttammie!

09:37 - Lorie Moffat
Moodle is free

09:47 - stidmama
participant only. :-)

09:50 - Peggy George
I love Moodle and use it regularly!

10:13 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I have used Moodle as a participant. I use Edmodo as my LMS in my classroom.

10:17 - Peggy George
love it Tammy!!! great idea!

10:45 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Excited to hear Lorie present today. :)

10:54 - Peggy George
@Paula I watched your TeachMeetNJ presentation on Mystery Location Calls yesterday! Loved it!

10:57 - @plnaugle (Paula) is organizing a massive campaign to get 10 million
students of all ages to participate in the Hour of Code this
December. Register now to participate at

11:02 - Lorie Moffat
Thanks, Paula :)

11:08 - aunttammie
I'm teaching HS English, so I can't think of how I'd use Scratch, but it looked like fun.

11:10 - Peggy George
I signed up for! Love that idea!

11:16 - Peggy George
Hi Wes! Welcome!

11:24 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Hi Wes. :)

11:35 - Wes Fryer
Hi Paula!

11:40 - Peggy George
Hooray!!! Welcome to Lorie!!! our Featured Teacher!!

11:49 - Eileen K 1
Franklin Institute is amazing!

12:16 - Peggy George
This is our Livebinder for today with all of Lorie's resources (in case you missed it) Archives for all recordings:

12:30 - Peggy George
I just learned about Franklin Institute from Lorie!

12:56 - Peggy George (The Franklin Institute Science Museum: one of the first educational institutions on the internet)

13:36 - Wes Fryer
I think the Franklin Institute is where Google had their meet up when ISTE was in Philadelphia a few years ago. It was a pretty amazing place!

13:44 - Peggy George
I love this story because it shows us how many ways we can find out about opportunities for jobs :-)

14:03 - Peggy George
Welcome Julio!

14:16 - Julio (Mexicali, Mé.)
Thank you

14:24 - Peggy George
wouldn't you love to be a volunteer in the Franklin Institute??? :-)

14:27 - Wes Fryer
woo hoo for mom's encouragement!

15:03 - Peggy George
mom's are so important in encouraging kids to seek and follow their dreams!!

15:38 - Peggy George
look at all of the things that happened as a result of her volunteering at the Museum!! Amazing!

15:49 - Peggy George
Welcome Shamblesguru and Becki! So glad you could join us!

16:03 - Becki Tharp
It's good to be here Peggy!

16:10 - Peggy George
wouldn't that be a dream job??? teaching without worrying about discipline :-)

16:24 - Peggy George
Hi Glenn!! So great to have you joining us!

16:45 - Peggy George (Blackboard Collaborate tutorials, step by step Voicethreads created by Lorie Moffat. Log in as guest to view the separate resources. Created for Collaborate v. 11.)

16:58 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN) 1
Thanks, Peggy! Discovered I needed to empty my Java cache to get BC to work. Woo hoo!

17:09 - Peggy George (Lorie’ Weebly)

17:29 - Peggy George
Woo hoo Glenn!!! That's exactly what I was going to suggest to you!!! I'm so glad you figured it out :-)

17:57 - Peggy George
I'm excited to see that the app sharing is working fine on my iPad!!! I wasn't sure but now I know!

18:27 - Peggy George (FreedomProject Education)

19:21 - Peggy George
it's frustrating to use Learning Management Systems when they don't offer the tools you need (like video)

19:42 - Peggy George
have you heard of SCORM?

19:49 - aunttammie

20:02 - Peggy George
sharable content object reference model

20:04 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN) 1
Yes...haven't used it much with our Haiku LMS

20:17 - Peggy George
that's what the initials stand for but the tool is amazing!

20:25 - Stella Maris Berdaxagar
I am attending a Moodle course right now and I have heard about it.

20:38 - Peggy George
scorm makes it really easy to embed tests and get results

20:59 - Peggy George
I don't understand scorm but I love what it does and it just works :-)

21:00 - Wes Fryer
I think advocates of learning objects have dreamed of SCORM being a unifying standard to share lesson resources, but I don't think that vision has born all the fruit people hoped it would

21:05 - Nancy Jackson
And that works in a Blackboard classroom?

21:05 - aunttammie
socrative does that

21:06 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN) 1
Immediate feedback is POWERFUL

21:13 - Wes Fryer

21:14 - Tammy Moore
Captivate is worth it. I love it. Teachers can get it for $19 a month. It can do so much from creen recording, building interactive activities and games, to SCORM for assessment. :0)

21:29 - Tammy Moore
You can use it in Collabotrate too.

21:34 - Peggy George
it's so important to get that feedback immediately so you know if you're on the right track :-)

21:38 - Tammy Moore
Just use the sSWF output

21:39 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN) 1
@Wesley - why do you think that is?

21:59 - aunttammie
I took a 3 hour class in Captivate, but couldn't do it. You have to be very good at coding, and I know nothing about coding

22:26 - aunttammie
Maybe she can recommend a class in coding

22:42 - Tammy Moore
Aunttammie - I would be happy to help you get started with Captivate. :0)

22:42 - Peggy George (Lorie’ Moodle site)

22:59 - Sarah @soltauheller
I am going to head out - not that relevent to my Gr2/3's - thanks guys!

23:04 - Patti R
Computer Science Education Week is coming up Dec 9-15 and they are offering an Hour of Code challenge for schools

23:42 - Wes Fryer
I talked to Alan Levine about this earlier in the fall... I don't think SCORM has been embraced by enough people... Corporate LMS platforms favor proprietary formats. I'm on the edge of my expertise offering this opinion tho...

23:45 - aunttammie
Does Captivate have to be attached to a Moodle?

23:54 - Peggy George

24:16 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN) 1
Thanks for that, Wes.

24:17 - shamblesguru [iPad Thailand]
Do you optimise these learning objects for mobile devices .…r?

24:33 - @viralber

24:34 - Peggy George
click on the links on Lorie's Moodle site where it says "Try These" and you'll be able to see her examples.

24:38 - Tammy Moore
@aunttammie - You can use it stand alone, on a webpage, in Collaborate or in an LMS.

24:44 - aunttammie
oh, I came to hate that cat! LOL

24:48 - Peggy George
Welcome @viralber!

24:55 - Tammy Moore

25:10 - Peggy George
Lorie has some great tutorials to share for Scratch!

25:24 - Tammy Moore
Shambles - Is your question about optimising for Captivate or Scratch?

25:36 - Peggy George
Scratch is something even very young students can use (and it's free) :-)

25:40 - Wes Fryer
Wonderful use of scratch, I love this!!!

26:04 - Peggy George (Lorie’ Weebly)

26:05 - shamblesguru [iPad Thailand]
Optimising the learning environment that the students see and work in

26:18 - aunttammie
Now, I CAN use Weebly! Love it!

26:26 - Peggy George
be sure to explore the drop down menus on Lorie's site to find all of these

26:38 - Peggy George
Smiling @aunttammie!!!!

26:42 - Wes Fryer
I've been collecting scratch resources this semester on

26:52 - Peggy George
that's a really cute example!!

26:56 - Oronoque

27:08 - Peggy George
thank you so much for your link Wes!!! I'll add it to our Livebinder.

27:25 - Peggy George
thanks Oronoque!! love all of the support in the chat!

27:36 - Oronoque
one hand washes the other

27:40 - shamblesguru [iPad Thailand]

27:50 - Tammy Moore
My son loves bats and as soon as he saw this one he was immediately intrigued. :)

27:56 - shamblesguru [iPad Thailand]
resources for coding in classrooms

28:18 - Peggy George
don't you think kids would love explaining how to solve math problems this way?

29:17 - Peggy George
there is nothing like teaching something to really cement your learning!

29:50 - Peggy George
I hope you're all able to see the screensharing. This is a terrific example of what can be done with Scratch

29:58 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN) 1
Very cool stuff!

30:10 - stidmama
This must be fun for the kids.

30:13 - aunttammie
How long would it take someone to do this with Scratch?

30:22 - Peggy George
great question @aunttammie!

30:31 - Oronoque
Usabillity testing too!

31:26 - Tammy Moore
I think you can still get it free for a year at the Adobe Educator Exchange

31:32 - Peggy George
Welcome Sofia and John!

31:43 - Peggy George
wow! that's great Tammy!

31:54 - aunttammie
What is the Adobe Educator Exchange?

32:10 - Tammy Moore
Here is the addy for the Educator's Exchange -

32:12 - Peggy George
that is such a powerful tool! hard to believe you can get it for free for a year!

32:27 - Peggy George
I'll add that link to the Livebinder

32:46 - aunttammie
just looked at the link, Tammy....looks great, thanks!

32:57 - Peggy George
those help links are right on the page when you're working with Scratch

33:37 - Peggy George
Hi LucianeCurator! Welcome!

34:02 - LucianeCurator @web20education
Hi Peggy . I am Sorry because I am late

34:17 - LucianeCurator @web20education
But happy to join again

34:23 - Sofia
Sorry too

34:24 - aunttammie
I'm sure that my ninth graders could figure out all that X and Y stuff....they know math.

34:35 - Peggy George
love how easy it is to share projects on Scratch so we don't have to start from "scratch" :-)

34:55 - Oronoque
Presenter offer extended until the end of November ---

35:19 - Peggy George
that math bat project has inspire me to try something like that! Looks really easy!

35:39 - Sofia
Scratch is adobes

35:59 - Sofia

36:05 - LucianeCurator @web20education
I finish ListlyTop 100 #startup tools from #websummit who can disrupt #socialmedia world

36:13 - Wes Fryer
No Scratch is free from MIT

36:15 - Tammy Moore
Scratch is MIT I think

36:21 - shamblesguru [iPad Thailand]

36:48 - LucianeCurator @web20education
Featured 20 edtools :)

36:54 - Sofia

37:11 - Eileen K 1
Now I may have my students use Scratch to make a commercial for a novel they have read .

37:36 - Peggy George (Basics of Scratch on Eliademy)
[group of Scratch resources Lorie collected]

38:01 - Peggy George
that course is fantastic! I just started using it today and already learned something in the first Scratch video!

38:09 - Peggy George
love that idea Eileen!

38:15 - Wes Fryer
Eileen, scratch is also great for helping students create interactive demonstrations, including games about things like books

38:28 - Tammy Moore
ViewPure is at

39:06 - Wes Fryer
Thanks for sharing the link to viewpure, I had seen that a while back but forgot it

39:06 - Eileen K 1
Thanks Wes and Peggy!

39:18 - Patti R is also good for cleaning up youtube videos

39:22 - Peggy George
Lorie has also created a Symbaloo for her resources today and this is in our Livebinder: (Symbaloo link for presentation resources)

39:49 - Peggy George
last week Shelly Terrell shared several great sites for viewing youtube videos like viewpure

40:11 - Peggy George
widgets make so many things automatic for us!

40:18 - Tammy Moore
You can even run the SCORMs from Captivate through if you don't have an LMS for it to report to.

40:30 - aunttammie
Now what did she use to create this drag and drop game?

40:39 - Tammy Moore
Captivate for this one

40:44 - Sofia

40:45 - aunttammie

40:51 - Peggy George
it will be fun to play with these!!!

41:32 - Oronoque
When you record a Connect session with Captivate or Presenter in it, the recording retains the interactivity.

41:39 - Eileen K 1
Tammy where will you be offering the course?

41:45 - Peggy George (NLVM virtual manipulatives library)

41:53 - Peggy George
that's an amazing site!

42:14 - Tammy Moore
Just contact me at and I will get you plugged in to the Captivate Training.

42:15 - Peggy George
really helps you to understand math concepts when you can move the pieces around

42:55 - Peggy George
we'll have to watch that video later--can't hear the audio now but can see it in action :-)

43:05 - aunttammie
For those of us who don't code, hotpotatoes software will do some of this without coding...not as fancy, but workable

43:05 - Tammy Moore
Animations are a great way to teach a concept. :0)

43:35 - Peggy George

43:38 - Eileen K 1
Thanks Tammy!

43:56 - shamblesguru [iPad Thailand]
Also stop motion photography …everal iPad iPhone Apps

44:09 - Peggy George
great tip @aunttammie Hot Potatoes is a great tool--simple but it works!!

44:30 - Peggy George
Lorie what's the link for that video?

44:46 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN) 1
I used Hot Potatoes software years ago...forgot about it. Easy to use.

44:58 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN) 1
It's been free all this time.

45:03 - Peggy George (Lorie’ YouTube channel)

45:15 - Tammy Moore
The video is at

45:43 - Peggy George
PPT files work well in most web conferencing tools :-)

45:49 - Peggy George
thanks Tammy!

46:45 - Nancy Jackson
With these, you can have interactive slides in Blackboard collaborate -- or do you have to do it outside of Blackboard?

47:03 - Tammy Moore
You can use it in or out of the online classroom setting

47:06 - Peggy George
these would be great resources/tools to provide students with extra practice at home even if you aren't teaching online :-)

47:13 - Peggy George
you're reading my mind Tammy!

47:47 - Peggy George
@Nancy yes you can creative interactive whiteboards for Collaborate! Tammy is a pro at that!

47:52 - Wes Fryer
Lorie, have you found a good collection of simple, short, open prompts for students to use scratch for when creating projects?

48:43 - Peggy George
Tammy can you share the link for some of your interactive whiteboard videos for Collaborate so we can put it in the Livebinder?

48:53 - Wes Fryer
Scratch projects can play on flash friendly I had browsers like iSwifter, but it doesn't let you edit or create projects very easily

48:54 - Tammy Moore
YEs :)

48:55 - Peggy George
love that question Wes!

49:52 - Peggy George (Adobe products for educators: When you click on the Buy link for an Adobe product, if there is a subscription (month by month or annual), the option is available.)

50:09 - Wes Fryer
Thanks - I'm very inspired by your creative Scratch project ideas!!

50:52 - Peggy George
if you have questions for Lorie feel free to type them here or raise your hand to take the mic :-)

51:22 - Peggy George
if any of you have stories/experiences to share about Scratch please take the mic to tell us about them!

51:55 - Peggy George (Scratch video tutorials)

52:04 - aunttammie
Wouldn't they have to know some geometry to use Scratch?

52:16 - Wes Fryer
Lorie, what is your favorite place to share student projects like the ones you have your kids creating so they can be seen and used by other teachers?

52:34 - Wes Fryer

52:38 - Tammy Moore
It is a Weebly

52:50 - Peggy George (Lorie’ Weebly)

53:10 - Peggy George
Weebly is a really easy site to use for creating your own website and it is free

53:38 - Wes Fryer

53:40 - Peggy George
we publish all of our blog posts on Weebly :-)

53:57 - aunttammie
Got a suggestion for learning to code?

54:02 - peri
Hello from Azerbaijan

54:13 - Wes Fryer
Also hopscotch if you have iPads!

54:18 - Peggy George
Hi Peri. Welcome!

54:33 - Peggy George
Wes take the mic to tell us about hopscotch :-)

54:41 - Sofia

54:42 - Patti R computer science education week, an hour of code for every student, check it out to expose them to the idea of coding

54:46 - Doug Henry
Scratch even runs on Raspberry Pi!

54:52 - Wes Fryer
I published it free, short e-book last week about using hopscotch with students on iPads

55:04 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Virtual applause for Lorie. Will be starting my 4th graders with Scratch in December.

55:08 - Peggy George

55:12 - Peggy George

55:22 - Peggy George

55:22 - Wes Fryer
Yes, great presentation Lorie!!!!

55:39 - Wes Fryer

55:46 - Peggy George
thanks Wes!!!!

56:01 - aunttammie
I couldn't do Scratch, cause I never could figure out the x, y stuff, but I know my students could do it

56:10 - Tammy Moore

56:36 - Peggy George
Scratch isn't available on ipads so Hopscotch is a great alternative

56:44 - Peggy George
great tip Lorie!

57:09 - mmclassroom
Does Scratch work on Google Chrome books?

57:21 - Wes Fryer
Yes it does

57:26 - mmclassroom
Thanks Wes!

57:33 - Wes Fryer
The new scratch is web-based, so it works great in the chrome browser

57:57 - mmclassroom
Fabulous. I'll pass this along to our video conferencing math teachers!

58:17 - Peggy George
great idea Lorie!

58:26 - Wes Fryer
I would bet your android browser will play scratch projects fine, since it supports flash

58:33 - Peggy George
thank you all for your questions and sharing in the chat!

58:39 - aunttammie
is hopscotch an app?

58:45 - Peggy George

58:54 - Tammy Moore

59:23 - Peggy George
definitely check out that link for the free Adobe Presenter access!

59:24 - Oronoque
