Our kids were so excited to see Linda's students solve our problems.

39:03 - Julie Hembree @mrs_hembree
yes, the codes! I know Linda has a sheet with the codes. I need to find one to give to my kids.

39:15 - Joan Young @flourishingkids
I wish Kidblogs allowed a clustr map..it doesn

39:18 - Peggy George

Does Linda have an aide to assist her?

45:54 - Peggy George
This is an excellent post on her site about what the students are learning from blogging http://yollisclassblog.blogspot.com/2009/05/what-weve-learned-from-blogging.html

45:57 - Elle (@Elle_Gifted)
I get my support and advice from great Tweechers like Linda, Paula, Sylvia

These are great!

46:19 - Elle (@Elle_Gifted)
They are my guides and inspiration

46:24 - Elle (@Elle_Gifted)
and Shellly Terrell of course!

46:29 - Peggy George
Great educational bloggers to connect with http://educational-blogging.wikispaces.com/Great+Educational+Blogs

46:34 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
I was just invited to do a Mystery Skype call into #edcampss that is happening today in Philadelphia. Yipppee, so excited to be a part of tha tevent virtually.

46:49 - Elle (@Elle_Gifted)
You're a star, Paula!

46:51 - Peggy George
yes @Elle Shelly Terrell is another really inspiring teacher!!!

47:06 - Joan Young @flourishingkids
We started as a class blog at the beginning of the year and then students really blossomed when I began Kidblogs and they got their own blog in January

47:06 - Peggy George
wow Paula!!! That is so exciting :-)

47:13 - Elle (@Elle_Gifted)
Amazing folks on Twitter. I recommend y'all join if you're not a part already!

47:32 - louisemorgan #2
YOu don't have time NOT to!

47:40 - Jon Bergmann
i agree. my best PD has been via twitter these past few yrs. It was twitter that got me here today.

47:49 - Peggy George
look at all of the things the kids are learning through their blogging and it's so motivating!

47:55 - Elle (@Elle_Gifted)
It's the same work, only you get to publish it online and with the world

47:56 - @teachingwthsoul
Can use Posterous or Tumblr as an easier lead in to blogging.

48:06 - louisemorgan #2
I love the idea of integrating curriculum - could go hand-in-hand with a "flipped" classroom

48:07 - Peggy George
excellent point Jon!! That's how I discover great PD too!

48:08 - Jon Bergmann
I am definitley going to share this with my staff. They will eat this up.

48:11 - Jonah Salsich @jmsalsich
Instead of a fancy bulletin board in class, turn the blog into an interactive one.

48:22 - billgx
what is the biggest obstacle for teachers to get started with blogging?

48:27 - Jon Bergmann
I even got my new job via twitter

48:30 - Peggy George
these tips apply to any grade level!!!

48:31 - TAMUC-LynnB
Blocks will be a problem, you need to get your tech departments on board with it.

48:34 - Elle (@Elle_Gifted)
And to see the reaction of your students when they realize they have a global audience- priceless

48:39 - reba @jghfoundation08 #2
linda do we have your permission to embed your video in our blogs to help other blogger

48:41 - Peggy George
thank you Linda!

48:43 - @lemoinemb MB Lemoine
wonderful.

48:50 - Joan Young @flourishingkids
Yes, it can also foster cross-age relationships at school as younger students contribute to comments and vice versa

48:52 - McTeach (Karen)
What an awesome session!! Thank you, Linda!!

48:54 - Carolyn Stanley
I have to give a PD workshop on blogging next week; these resources will be invaluable.

48:54 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Virtual applause for Linda! :)

48:57 - Joan Young @flourishingkids
Thank you so much Linda :-)

48:58 - @lemoinemb MB Lemoine
Every time I come on Saturday, I am reinvigorated!

49:03 - TAMUC-LynnB
Thanks Linda! Great Presentation!

49:04 - reba @jghfoundation08 #2
yes it was motivating

49:06 - Joan Young @flourishingkids
fantastic session

49:07 - Patti R
I firmly believe in the benefits of classroom blogging but i am the tech teacher and only see them once a week, frustrating when i encourage other teachers to use the blog and they say what Linda just talked about, they don't have time

49:13 - @lemoinemb MB Lemoine
Love your enthusiasm, Linda

49:14 - @SteveHayes_RB60
Thank you, Linda!

49:14 - Linda Yollis
:-)

49:17 - Elle (@Elle_Gifted)
Excellent, Linda. Thanks for sharing all the amazing work you do!

49:18 - @shamblesguru
Posterous has been bought by Twitter

49:20 - Ruhiyye
Thank you so much Linda !

49:28 - Rich@rcantrell
Great session Linda!!!!!

49:33 - Julie Hembree @mrs_hembree
Super session! Thanks so much Linda! Every time I hear you speak, I learn something new.

49:38 - @teachingwthsoul
Great resources! Will be sharing with newbies :-)

49:38 - Patti R
wonderful sharing, Linda, thanks

49:39 - Joan Young @flourishingkids
Beautiful work by you and your students.. can really feel the energy and passion as you share.

49:41 - Peggy George
tell us more about your school Linda

49:42 - McTeach (Karen)
Whoa! @shamblesguru...I hadn't heard that!

49:43 - stidmama
This has been really amazing! Thank you for talking about how to set things up for the families as well as the students - and for the reminder that things like this don't have to be another thing to check off on a list, but can evolve from existing work/lessons.

50:05 - Angie Kelley
Thank you so much! Very informative and makes me want to try blogging :)

50:09 - TAMUC-SusanB
Loved this today!! Can't wait to use it this year in my middle school lang. arts class...but even more excited to use it in my new job as elementary librarian next year...I will be working with 5th and 6th grade social studies and language arts classes for technology...now I know what we can do!! :)

50:10 - Carolyn Stanley
What do you think will happen to Posterous since it's been bought out by Twitter -

50:13 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Linda, can you share some links to the blogs your students have earned? They are awesome.

50:14 - @lemoinemb MB Lemoine
There are great books for html at B & N.

50:20 - reba @jghfoundation08 #2
@shamblesguru Congrats on your upcoming retirement. I retired in June and consult schools w/ed tech wrkshps

50:24 - TAMUC-LynnB
She had a good one in this presentation.

50:29 - Peggy George
aha! instructions for html codes. I have saved some of those that I could include in the Livebinder. I think Linda's tips are probably plenty to get started with

50:32 - Patti R
the html tags have changed since i started using it

50:35 - Jonah Salsich @jmsalsich
http://yollisclassblog.blogspot.com/p/learn-html.html

50:38 - @teachingwthsoul
@Shamblesguru Yes, I read that and got an email. Not much will change. I'm a posterous user :)

50:48 - shukufa
thank you linda it is great

50:49 - Julie Hembree @mrs_hembree
Oh wow! I didn't realize that was on your blog! Thanks Linda!

50:54 - Ruhiyye
Wonderful presentation it was and we benefited from it

51:01 - Sarah @soltauheller
the feature - with the ?'s on it?

51:02 - @shamblesguru
Posterous have stated that nothing wil change for the time being

51:02 - Peggy George
you can take the mic in a minute @lourisemorgan :-)

51:03 - Sarah @soltauheller
yes!

51:22 - Jonah Salsich @jmsalsich
The quiz feature is free as well

51:24 - louisemorgan #2
http://photopeach.com/

51:24 - reba @jghfoundation08 #2
picnik is closed or closing very soon

51:25 - Sarah @soltauheller
that particular feature of in slide questions

51:29 - Peggy George
I love Posterous so much so I hope it doesn't change!

51:41 - Sarah @soltauheller
interactive free?

51:50 - stidmama
piknik has been bought and integrated into picasa, as a stand-alone it goes away next month

51:52 - Joan Young @flourishingkids
easily embedded makes it nice

51:56 - Peggy George
the interaction is through comments added to the PhotoPeach

51:57 - Sarah @soltauheller
thanks @jonah

51:59 - Jonah Salsich @jmsalsich
Yes, the quiz feature is free in Photopeach

52:19 - Deanna
So great to know the quiz feature is free!

52:29 - @shamblesguru
This is the official announcement about Twitter buying Posterous http://blog.posterous.com/big-news

52:30 - @teachingwthsoul
ues Picmonkey! Was designed by former Piknikers! http://www.picmonkey.com/

52:30 - louisemorgan #2
I'm sure including the the parents helps alot

52:35 - Deanna
We blog every Monday in my 3rd grade class.

52:40 - reba @jghfoundation08 #2
when blogging the students now love to write and are more than willing to edit

52:44 - Sarah @soltauheller
? is commenting more important than the posting?

52:46 - reba @jghfoundation08 #2
they are more engaged now

52:46 - louisemorgan #2
We blog dueing our daily 5 rounds

52:50 - Peggy George
I created this PhotoPeach when I visited Jackie Gerstein's class so I could capture all of the wonderful things they were doing http://photopeach.com/album/l36t73

52:54 - nikki
How do you integrate the student with vision challenges or other disabilities in the blogging or in the classroom?

52:59 - Deanna
It is part of our writing workshop time. The students look forward to it!

53:08 - TAMUC-LynnB
That makes a good 15 minute starter that gives the teacher time to do her admin job such as roll, etc.

53:11 - karen
Where do the kids type the HTML code? In the comment section, in Word then cut and paste?

53:20 - louisemorgan #2
I have a vision impaired student who get frustrated when using the comouter.

53:21 - Peggy George
Lorie will call on you in just a minute if you have your hand raised

53:32 - TAMUC-LynnB
BLOCKS

53:40 - louisemorgan #2
time and teaching the students how to use the blog.

53:48 - reba @jghfoundation08 #2
the students with visual issues you can use the program "DRAGON DICTATION" they can dictate and it will type on the screen

54:02 - Peggy George
so true and so sad @TAMUC LynnB

54:04 - Jonah Salsich @jmsalsich
Adapt traditional lessons into blog posts/activities

54:13 - reba @jghfoundation08 #2
@louise morgan - use dragon dictation program- its free

54:35 - @shamblesguru
@louise ... for Special Needs and ICT have a look at http://www.shambles.net/pages/staff/ITSEN/

54:39 - Elle (@Elle_Gifted)
Where do you find inspiration for your projects?

54:39 - Julie Hembree @mrs_hembree
Our district is pretty nervous, but happy with Edublogs because it's completely education oriented. For block happy places, it might be an option your district can live with.

54:39 - Peggy George
when you can show your admins all of the incredible things kids are learning through blogging you may get it unblocked--show them this Livebinder with Linda's examples

54:47 - louisemorgan #2
thanks @shamblesguru!

54:50 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Having my students have their own individual blogs is a time committment on my part because I have to moderate all posts and comments.

54:56 - Sarah @soltauheller
@reba I find kids w/writing issues also have articulation issues & dragon dictation is usually an issue

54:58 - Joan Young @flourishingkids
You could always use Dragon dictation

54:58 - Peggy George
many apps and tools for vision impaired students

55:07 - Peggy George
Dragon Dictation is wonderful!

55:13 - Sarah @soltauheller
espec. in k/1 can be a challenge

55:14 - louisemorgan #2
Is that an ipad app?

55:16 - reba @jghfoundation08 #2
@sarah absolutely

55:21 - Linda Yollis
Great, thank you!

55:24 - Joan Young @flourishingkids
Yes it's an ipad app as well as software

55:24 - Elle (@Elle_Gifted)
I agree Paula. I haven't taken that step with individual student blogs because they are still learning about blogging.

55:28 - Peggy George
it has an iphone/ipad app too

55:30 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Try audioboo to do audio posts to blogs.

55:32 - TAMUC-LynnB
I sure plan to show the tech department this livebinder if BLOCKS remains a problem

55:33 - reba @jghfoundation08 #2
@louise morgan yes it is an iPad app too

55:35 - Joan Young @flourishingkids
yes love audioboo

55:38 - Joan Young @flourishingkids
easy to embed

55:39 - Deanna
I love audioboo too!

55:43 - Valia @trulygreenfish
Read and Write gold also good text to speech programme :)

55:59 - shukufa
i have a question , do you do it during the lesson or you post them on the blog and then students have a look and respond them at home?

56:02 - Peggy George
if you want something to be bold in your comments select HTML and type <b>

56:02 - Sarah @soltauheller
audioboo is nice to use w/younger students

56:19 - Peggy George
then when the bolding is finished type </b>

56:23 - reba @jghfoundation08 #2
never heard of audioboo - will check it out

56:24 - Elle (@Elle_Gifted)
I use Blogger, so simple.

56:30 - Sarah @soltauheller
don't need coding - like word buttons puts in code for you

56:32 - Peggy George
you have to start and end whatever html code you have

56:32 - TAMUC-LynnB
Usually there is a HTML window tab beside the regular edit window.

56:34 - Jonah Salsich @jmsalsich
I don't think edublogs shows the code

56:39 - louisemorgan #2
kidblog allows has editing buttons for posts but not comments.

56:47 - @shamblesguru
Audioboo has an iPhone/iPad free App

56:56 - @teachingwthsoul
Really great today! Off to virtual #ASCD12 session :)

56:59 - reba @jghfoundation08 #2
@elle - yes blogger is real easy- I got each teacher to start a class blog using blogger - they love it

57:03 - Peggy George
several hands raised and maybe one of them wants to add their answers to these questions :-)

57:14 - stidmama
I have some visual impairments -- make sure that the text can be re-sized by the user, and that there is good contrast on the screen. Not all of us use screen readers! Avoid the use of tables to lay out web pages, they are confusing to screen readers and don't always enlarge nicely for the rest of us. There are some websites that talk about how to set up pages for people with visual impairments.

57:30 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Bye, Joan. Have a grea day. Share link on Twittter for virtual ASCD session please.

57:31 - Elle (@Elle_Gifted)
@Reba Fabulous! I wish our teachers would have a grade level blog. So many great things going on to share!

57:44 - Peggy George
I know of parents who take their kids to the library to do their blogging because they don't have a computer at home

57:47 - Jonah Salsich @jmsalsich
Once students use the basic html code (italics, bold) it is pretty easy for them

58:05 - reba @jghfoundation08 #2
@elle Some teachers took it on and kept blogging, others would write once in a while

58:21 - shukufa
thanks a lot for the answer linda and peggy

58:25 - Elle (@Elle_Gifted)
At least you got it started, Reba! That's wonderful!

58:33 - Peggy George
hearing you now Louise but your audio is cutting out

58:36 - Linda Yollis
I can't hear her at all.

58:51 - Peggy George
better now but missed the first part Louise

59:05 - Ruhiyye
so did I

59:07 - Peggy George
how do you handle blog access for students who leave you

59:10 - stidmama
for those who are asking about how to use html, and basic coding, W3 school tutorials are wonderful, free, and by experts. http://www.w3schools.com/html/

59:12 - Sarah @soltauheller
? about commenting vs writing? Is the commenting the first step? in K/1 we want writers so I have focused more on writing than commenting - what are your thoughts?

59:18 - Joan Young @flourishingkids
Thank you so much Linda and Peggy too! Have a wonderful day :-)

59:52 - Peggy George
we'll officially wrap up the webinar and then continue with questions

59:59 - louisemorgan #2
that's a great idea!

59:59 - Jonah Salsich @jmsalsich
The pro account for edublogs won't run out of space. I keep my blog going year to year.

1:00:15 - louisemorgan #2
I will probably move to a different format this year.

1:00:19 - Patti R
i use classblogmeister and i can move students to the next grade so their blog is with them for third through eighth grade, like an electronic portfolio where they embed many of their projects

1:00:23 - Melody (@soingirl)
I carry on with the same one as well

1:00:23 - Rae Ann
What is the livebinder link?

1:00:25 - Peggy George
I think that's so important that they are able to access their blogs after they leave your class

1:00:26 - Sarah @soltauheller
I keep mine going -also helps with reusing ideas

1:00:30 - Carolyn Stanley
A blog is such a wonderful diary. I go back a couple of years and look at posts I made and it brings back memories.

1:00:30 - @shamblesguru
ASCD Virtual Conference now at http://ascd.social27.com/ASCD/sessions Sat & Sun

1:00:30 - @lemoinemb MB Lemoine
Can't you pay for more space?

1:00:36 - louisemorgan #2
thank you Linda!

1:00:41 - shukufa
i try to learn and to make the blog by myself without any learning by someone but i think it will be great to make such blog here in my country hope to make like this for my studentsinshallah

1:00:56 - Deanna
I use kidblog and justed asked for more space and they gave it. ;)

1:00:58 - Tina Schmidt
I keep Edublogs as class blog and Kidblogs for kids. So I start new Kidblogs each year but keep class blog going.

1:01:11 - Linda Yollis
:-) Thanks, Paula!

1:01:16 - Peggy George
Karen don't you want to share something :-)

1:01:30 - McTeach (Karen)
Who? Me?

1:01:32 - Sarah @soltauheller
I keep my class blog - edublog - on student's blog (kidblog) I make new class each year

1:01:42 - Peggy George
great idea Paula!

1:01:46 - reba @jghfoundation08 #2
great webinar on blogging - will pass it on to the teachers

1:01:54 - Jonah Salsich @jmsalsich

1:01:58 - @shamblesguru
ASCD Virtual Conference now at http://ascd.social27.com/ASCD/sessions Sat & Sun ... BUT NOT FREE

1:02:05 - @Len_Horn
Showcasing winning blogs is a great idea.

1:02:17 - Julie Hembree @mrs_hembree
Great session Linda! I am going to share parts in my district blogging class this week! Great ideas as always!

1:02:31 - Peggy George
this is Linda's blogger list http://educational-blogging.wikispaces.com/Great+Educational+Blogs

1:03:03 - louisemorgan #2
@soltauheller do you open it up or is it password protected?

1:03:19 - Peggy George
I'll officially close the webinar and then we can continue with questions. We'll keep the recording going :-)

1:03:24 - Julie Hembree @mrs_hembree
I blog with a student in Australia who has kept her blog for 2 years. She started in 2nd grade and is now in 4th grade and going strong. She just reached 10,000 visitors!

1:03:31 - reba @jghfoundation08 #2
That would be a great motivator for students to get their own blog

1:03:39 - Rae Ann
What is the livebinder link?

1:03:55 - stidmama
Thank you, Linda!!! This was just what I needed.

1:04:13 - Linda Yollis
Thank you, everyone, for coming and supporting blogging!

1:04:14 - Deanna
Wow... Alec and Rheingold coming up! Thanks Classroom 2.0 Live!

1:04:29 - Jonah Salsich @jmsalsich
Great presentation Linda! I'm going to try to increase grandparent participation. Thanks!

1:04:43 - TAMUC Sharon G

1:04:46 - McTeach (Karen)

1:04:48 - Ruhiyye
Thank you so much Classroom 2.0 Live team!

1:04:59 - shukufa
it will be great to know linda's email and want to email her to know something if i need of course if she agree

1:05:07 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
I attended the David Warlick seesion last week too. Great conversation.

1:05:12 - TAMUC Sharon G
Sorry. David Loertscher. David Warlick was good too.

1:05:12 - @lemoinemb MB Lemoine
You all are so wonderful!

1:05:12 - Linda Yollis
Yes, thank you Classroom Live! This has been great! :-)

1:05:20 - louisemorgan #2
Thanks! This was wonderful - will spend the summer rethinking our classroom blogging for next year!

1:05:37 - reba @jghfoundation08 #2
Wow I got a tweet about that Stem Wkshp

1:05:40 - @shamblesguru
There is a Brilliant App called Blogshelf on the iPad that allows you to visually look at multiple Blogs on a bookshelf ... potential to save lots-a-time.

1:13:05 - Peggy George

1:13:06 - reba @jghfoundation08 #2
Great photos of paper blogging...Wow..will send out on Twitter

1:13:49 - McTeach (Karen)
Thanks Reba! I may have to update those photos

1:13:50 - Sarah @soltauheller
? about commenting vs writing - scared that mine will be too echoy

1:14:02 - Linda Yollis
Great!

1:14:03 - Peggy George
thanks Reba!!

1:14:13 - McTeach (Karen)
Awesome!!

1:14:21 - Linda Yollis
Oh, that's a great idea, Reba! For teachers!

1:14:25 - Peggy George
take the mic to ask that question @Sarah

1:14:32 - McTeach (Karen)
Yeah, I think teachers need more help understanding the process than the kids do

1:15:02 - Sarah @soltauheller
can you give it to me?

1:15:07 - McTeach (Karen)
What do you mean by echoey?

1:15:14 - Peggy George
I see what you mean

1:15:20 - Linda Yollis
It sounds great!

1:15:22 - Peggy George
if only one mic is on it won't echo :-)

1:15:39 - louisemorgan #2
I missed the video at the beginning - apparently I needed to download flash. Can I have the link?

1:15:53 - Peggy George
great question Sarah! Thanks!!

1:16:02 - Sarah @soltauheller
clear as mud?

1:16:07 - Peggy George

1:16:27 - Julie Hembree @mrs_hembree
Must leave, thanks again Linda!

1:16:35 - Peggy George
I didn't realize the importance of the comments before Linda shared all of this!! So much more than "nice to get a comment"

1:17:24 - Peggy George
her examples are really helpful!

1:17:58 - louisemorgan #2
Thanks everyone! gotta go prom dress shopping

1:18:09 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Bye, Louise.

1:18:32 - McTeach (Karen)
Maria Knee would be a great resource for kindergarten teachers wanting to blog

1:18:41 - Sarah @soltauheller
makes sense! My kids aren't reading at beginning (k/1)- makes hard for independance -just need to really think about what your purposes are in beginning

1:18:45 - Deanna
I blogged with 1st graders last year and I let them make those errors.

1:18:49 - Linda Yollis
Absolutely! @grade1 does some great writing with her young students. Check her out.

1:18:56 - Deanna
It was great to see how they progressed throughout the year.
