07:16 - Peggy George
Welcome Eileen and Carolyn! So great to see you!

07:17 - Carolyn Stanley
Is this the first time an EdCamp has been broadcast live?

07:28 - Lorie Moffat
yes, Carolyn, I think

07:32 - Peggy George
if you're on an ipad you won't be able to see the webcam

07:39 - Eileen K
Hello everyone! Great to be back!

07:59 - Lorie Moffat
fine, Jeff

08:03 - @teachteKBeck (Kristen)
Hello, glad to have you!!

08:03 - Peggy George
we want to show you a short video promo for EdCampNJ :-)

08:04 - TxSharonGullett 1
Hi from East Texas

08:13 - Peggy George
we are so excited for this show!

08:13 - Carolyn Stanley
@Peggy - hope you are feeling better. Thanks so much for your note. Yes, I am interested.

08:28 - Peggy George
thanks Carolyn! Still coughing so won't be talking on the show...

08:32 - Eileen K
Yes, on my iPad wish I could the webcam.

08:54 - Carolyn Stanley
@Peggy - ohhh - take care of yourself. I told you about Adrian's long bout.

09:00 - Peggy George
it will be part of the recording later if you can't see it today

09:14 - Peggy George
http://youtu.be/LbfvqOQrzAk

09:42 - Peggy George
it should start playing as soon as it loads for you

09:50 - Lorie Moffat
It did, Peggy

09:54 - Peggy George
yeah!!

10:05 - Oronoque
oh yes, I have taken part in THATCamps which are unconferences that focus on the digital humanities

10:09 - Peggy George
that was our "own" Paula Naugle on the video!!!

10:14 - Carolyn Stanley
I went to EdCamp CT two years in a row. It was awesome. I even got brave enough to start a session at my second as well as participate in the smackdown.

10:38 - Peggy George
that's fantastic Carolyn! Smackdowns are an important feature of EdCamps!

10:56 - Peggy George
love that EdCampNJ shirt!!!!! I want one!!!

11:17 - Peggy George
this video is fantastic! really captures what happens at an EdCamp :-)

11:20 - Oronoque
look at all the big people at little people tables <3

11:39 - Peggy George
:-)

11:51 - Peggy George
another trademark of EdCamps :-) held in schools :-)

12:05 - Lorie Moffat
yes

12:27 - Oronoque
and must have been a weekend day when the heat is turned off

12:28 - Peggy George
Hi Dana!!!! So great to see you!!!!

12:57 - Peggy George
this is our Livebinder for today: http://www.livebinders.com/play/play?id=1109664

12:59 - TeacherCast
audio ok?

13:07 - Lorie Moffat
yes, Jeff :)

13:07 - Peggy George
the video we just saw is part of the Livebinder

13:09 - Peggy George
audio is great

13:31 - TeacherCast
:-)

13:40 - Peggy George
EdCamps are completely "driven" by the participants! Everyone chooses the topics they want to explore

13:49 - Peggy George
FREE!!!!!! woo hoo!!

13:50 - Carolyn Stanley
Everyone who is there is there because he/she WANTS to be there! That is key,

13:58 - Peggy George
absolutely!!!!

14:14 - Peggy George
love getting to meet the EdCampNJ organizers!!!

14:28 - Peggy George
http://edcampnj.org/

14:40 - Peggy George
you don't have to be an expert to share at edcamp!!

14:43 - Oronoque
nice thing about unconferences is that you realize how much kowledge you can share without having to do lots of prep (which is a hard thing for teachers to find the additional time to do)

14:49 - Peggy George
you lead conversations :-)

15:02 - Peggy George
that is such a great point Oronoque!!!

15:23 - Peggy George
wow! 12 rooms! so many choices!!

15:44 - Oronoque
sticky notes are so great as organizing tools

16:04 - Peggy George
once the conversation starts everyone realizes they either have info to share or questions to ask :-) perfect combination!

16:13 - Peggy George
Hi Wes! So glad you could join us!

16:26 - Wes Fryer
Hi Peggy :-)

16:28 - Peggy George
so exciting we can be part of EdCampNJ without traveling to NJ!!!!

17:03 - Peggy George
you just need the courage to realize it's fine to leave a session to move on to another session if it's not meeting your needs :-)

17:17 - Carolyn Stanley
In the session I ran, I was only the facilitator. The topic was integration success stories in middle school. I was shocked when 9 or 10 people signed up. Everyone had something to share.

17:30 - Peggy George
you can see how powerful the concept is when you get close to 300 educators showing up on a Saturday!!

17:37 - Peggy George
Hi Dotty! Welcome!

17:58 - Dotty
Good morning all!

18:05 - Peggy George
for people on iPads you won't be able to see our NJ guests on the web cam so if you have a computer available you might want to switch

18:18 - Peggy George
I've been loving seeing the photos on twitter!!!

18:35 - Carolyn Stanley
What is the @# for this session. I missed it.

18:42 - Oronoque
@Peggy, and showing up on the Saturday before Thanksgiving

19:02 - Peggy George
absolutely Oronoque!!!! you are all awesome!!!

19:12 - Carolyn Stanley
Tweet this out to Arne Duncan and to President Obama.

19:18 - @janwells
This great we can take part. Thanks

19:18 - Peggy George
Kevin is the person who has been teaching lots of us about organizing EdCamps!!!!

19:24 - Peggy George
great idea Carolyn!!!

19:49 - TeacherCast
are we ok?

19:55 - Peggy George
the hashtag for them is #edcampnj

20:02 - Peggy George
yes the audio and video is great!

20:06 - @shamblesguru [thailand Macbook]
#njedchat #EdCampNJ

20:14 - Carolyn Stanley
Dan Callahan was at both CT EdCamps I attended. He was one on the original founders, wasn't he?

20:22 - @janwells
Is there a way to make the video full screen?

20:26 - Peggy George
I first learned about edcamps from EdCampPhilly :-)

20:42 - Peggy George
yes you can drag the video window to the center of your screen and stretch it out

20:47 - Lorie Moffat
Yes, you can drag out the video pod, like I explained with the chat.

http://edcamp.org/ (EdCamp Foundation)

21:42 - Peggy George
that is the site where you can learn about edcamps being organized everywhere!

22:03 - Carolyn Stanley
It was amazing all the resources -food, give-aways, t-shirts -not to mention the wonderful venu - We really need to thank the organizers of these edcamps sessions

22:28 - Peggy George
many school districts are starting to offer unconference experiences for teachers because they are demanding these opportunities for relevant, timely PD!

22:45 - Dotty
Few edcamps have been in my area, but I have missed them

22:47 - Peggy George
Welcome Joyce and Alan! So glad you could join us!

22:50 - Carolyn Stanley
@Shambles- Thanks!

23:03 - Peggy George
there are even some edcamps that are starting to offer them virtually

23:15 - Alan Guttman
Hi - Peggy - good to be back. Happy T-Giving!

23:25 - Peggy George
:-) Same to you!

23:51 - Peggy George
EdCampNJ organizers: http://edcampnj.org/about/edcampnj-organizers/

24:24 - Peggy George
that's why it's so hard to stream an edcamp virtually because they are conversations not presentations

sometimes you just find a corner and have a conversation with several people

25:29 - Peggy George
great questions Jeff!!!

25:53 - Peggy George
it's a perfect place to ask questions

26:24 - Peggy George
in case you missed the link here is the Livebinder for all of today's resources: http://www.livebinders.com/play/play?id=1109664

26:44 - Joyce
Thansk for the great links. Have been trying for two years to get administration on board.

26:45 - @shamblesguru [thailand Macbook]
The tagline for Barcamp (more focused on tech than edu) Chiangmai, Thailand is ... It is an open, participatory event. Anyone can come. There is no audience, only participants. The whole idea is to get smart people that love technology together to collaborate, network, and learn.

26:48 - Peggy George
didn't know that about edcamps in Sweden! :-)

27:13 - Peggy George
I love that tagline Shambles!!

27:13 - @shamblesguru [thailand Macbook]

27:14 - Carolyn Stanley
My grandmother was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, so I feel an affinity for Danes.

27:50 - Peggy George
I'll be posting this recording on iTunesU later today and the video will be uploaded to YouTube so it can be embedded anywhere :-)

28:21 - Peggy George
that was my first unconference experience too! Edubloggercon before ISTE and I always go early every year just to be able to participate in it!

28:51 - Peggy George
great advice Kevin!!! once you go to an edcamp you will be hooked and will want to keep going back!

29:22 - Peggy George
thank you so much Kevin!!!

29:39 - TeacherCast
edcamp Photobooth

29:41 - Peggy George
love the photobooth idea!!! can't wait to try that at the Phoenix EdCamp!!!

30:01 - Carolyn Stanley
Photobooths are such fun and really capture memories.

30:21 - Peggy George
we should take a screenshot of this session and submit it to the photobooth stream :-)

30:32 - Peggy George
love the excitement!!!!

31:07 - Carolyn Stanley
Student voice is so important and so under used.

31:17 - Peggy George
student voice would be such a great addition! I love hearing the student presentations at ISTE!

31:45 - Carolyn Stanley
Listening to students on the TED talks run by youth are absolutely awe-inspiring.

32:05 - Carolyn Stanley
I know Paul, and his daughter was one of my favorite students.

32:30 - Carolyn Stanley
@Peggy! Paul Bogush would be a great candidate for a Classroom 2.0 session.

32:32 - Peggy George
EduconPhilly streams all of their sessions! Be sure to sign up so you can participate. All free! We cancel our show so all of us can join them. http://educonphilly.org/

32:51 - Peggy George
Thank you so much Dana!!!!

33:15 - Peggy George
all of these fabulous black shirts are the helpers and organizers for the event!

33:22 - Carolyn Stanley
It would be great if they got Paul and his daughter on the webcam to say hi.

33:26 - Peggy George
welcome Jay!! I think we saw him in the video promo :-)

33:51 - Peggy George
what a thrill to see the Superintendant there!!!

34:16 - Peggy George
how do you reach out to administrators to get them to participate in edcampnj?

34:47 - @shamblesguru [thailand Macbook]
In USA do all attendees have to wear black polos and jeans ... the new uniform? :-)

34:48 - Peggy George
awesome point! it's all about the networking and the people you meet and connect with!

35:00 - Carolyn Stanley
@TeacherCast - can you see if the folks speaking can get the teacher from CT and his daughter (they just mentioned) on the webcam to say hi

35:03 - Peggy George
yes my question

35:24 - teacherhann
learn by making!!! it's awesome! it's self directed, interest based, and FUN

35:59 - Peggy George
I loved seeing this--advance thinking for them-- http://storify.com/wkrakower/njed-chat-what-topics-would-you-like-to-see-at-ed (Storify: NJED Chat-What Topics Would You Like to See at EdCampNJ?)

36:04 - Carolyn Stanley
It has to be personal. You have to really beg a teacher friend to come along as a personal favor to you not realizing it's a favor to them.

36:11 - Peggy George
all topics are chosen once you get to the event at the start of the day

36:23 - Peggy George
absolutely @teacherhann!!!!

36:49 - TeacherCast
time lft?

36:50 - Peggy George
people bring things to share on screen even if they aren't "presenting"--always great to see the examples

36:51 - teacherhann
early learners especially, need to connect concrete with abstract! That's what we're trying to do with our new 3d printer!

36:56 - Peggy George
25 mins

37:22 - Peggy George
maybe 20 mins :-)

37:34 - Eileen K
Anyone know when Phillyedcamp will be?

37:36 - Peggy George
more than a day would be awesome!

37:41 - TeacherCast

38:13 - Oronoque
As someone with an appreciation for online communications, I always find it striking when people sit together in the same room while watching their computer screens.

38:21 - Peggy George
http://educonphilly.org/

38:50 - Peggy George
I get excited just hearing him describe the passion of the participants!

38:58 - Peggy George
the real world!!!!

39:11 - Peggy George
how do you get all of those sponsors????

39:16 - Peggy George
keep going

43:46 - Peggy George

45:09 - Peggy George

45:22 - Peggy George
I wish we could view it but they will post all of their links later :-)

45:23 - Carolyn Stanley
I tweeted out at #edcampnj to @BarakObama and to @ArneDuncan about the event - everyone should tweet to them

45:30 - Wes Fryer
What are some of the differences they have made in their schedule and the way the conferences organized from past years?

45:39 - Peggy George
A Smackdown or Show and Tell is a sharing of websites, tools or teaching tricks that you have found to be great to use. You are given 2 minutes to present the tool to the group.

45:50 - Peggy George
http://blog.web20classroom.org/2010/12/lessons-from-smackdown.html (EdCampNT Smackdown resources and video recording)

46:08 - Peggy George
that's a great blog post/video about a smackdown for EdCampNT (new teachers)

46:45 - Carolyn Stanley
My principal adopted the SmackDown -after I introduced him to the concept - a faculty meetings. They were short but a bit longer than those in a conference smackdown.
