Moderator: Hi, Bob.


Bob Caro: good morning


Moderator: You coming to the Houston workshop?


Bob Caro: yes


Moderator: Thought so.


Moderator: Good to see more signups there.


Bob Caro: I'm looking forward to it


Moderator: I haven't heard from our guest today, Jane Hart, and I think she may have forgotten.


Moderator: http://www.neccunplugged.com


PeggyG: Many people choose to wait to watch/listen to podcasts, webcasts & streams after NECC to help them with conflicting sessions. One way to solve the problem.


Alice Mercer: Ed Tech lady for elementary is on the same floor with curriculum folks, but they don't seem to be interested in how tech could help


PeggyG: NECC Unplugged is definitely complicating my decisions (in a great way) about which sessions to attend.


Alice Mercer: Well, we're here!


PeggyG: Funny! False advertising


Alice Mercer: No, but I'll try


PeggyG: Haven't tried to do that. Only have searched my own bookmarks in Diigo


PeggyG: I don't post a lot of bookmarks to Diigo so I haven't had a need to do that


Alice Mercer: brb


Moderator: http://www.stevehargadon.com


PeggyG: Saw your tweet come through about futureofeducation.com and wondered what you wanted to do with it


PeggyG: I've been playing with trying to create a list of Voicethreads for webslides on Diigo and having problems. Have any of you tried that?


Moderator: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/Acrobat.com/ConnectNow/index.html


PeggyG: Haven't used Adobe connect now


PeggyG: Yes-problem is that it usually takes you to the home page of VT rather than the specific VT


Moderator: http://www.pageflakes.com/NingDashboard/3363844


PeggyG: Durff is using Pageflakes to compile NECC 2008 docs-great resource to have all in one place


PeggyG: Yes I thought I'd ask Maggie about VT


clifmims: I've run into that, too, Peggy. Let me dig through my notes and see if I solved the issue.


PeggyG: Yes there are separate URLs for VT


PeggyG: If they are on a blog or wiki there's no problem


PeggyG: Looking for Lisa Durff's link


Moderator: http://www.google.com/talk/service/badge/New


Alice Mercer: Nope, I'm boring


PeggyG: http://www.pageflakes.com/susiewhoq_2000


PeggyG: Durff's title says 2007 but it's really 2008


PeggyG: can you send the google link again-got error message


PeggyG: I love having everything linked on one page!


Bob Caro: http://www.google.com/talk/service/badge/New


PeggyG: that link is giving me a bad request message


PeggyG: Yes


Bob Caro: sorry - that link is bad from google's page


PeggyG: I haven't used google talk-sounds really neat


Bob Caro: you can only use that link if you're already logged into your google acount


PeggyG: Say more about that


dave cormier: hey folks


clifmims: Hey, Dave.


dave cormier: who would ever search for their own name... :|


dave cormier: lol


dave cormier: technorati


Bob Caro: who doesn't - be honest...


PeggyG: That makes sense--that would be great to put a link on Pageflakes for that


dave cormier: i do it all the time...


Alice Mercer: YEP!


Alice Mercer: Hi Dave!


dave cormier: it's just another way of talking


congerjan: I actually did it and was surprised that someone had actually read my blog


dave cormier: when you're publishing your thoughts to the world


Alice Mercer: It helps everyone's technorati/google ranking


dave cormier: as opposed to your desktop


dave cormier: there is a certain assumption that someone might want to read it


PeggyG: http://beta.searchme.com/


clifmims to Tom Barrett: Hey, Tom. It's a nice morning over here. How are things there?


Moderator: http://www.diigo.com/user/stevehargadon?domain=www.nocussing.com


PeggyG: Have you tried this visual search engine? Love it


Tom Barrett: Hi Steve, Clif and all


dave cormier: i would get kicked out of this club everyday


Tom Barrett: pretty grey here but warmer than usual


PeggyG: That's an amazing site-need to explore it further


congerjan: hot and humid here in PA Tom...


Bob Caro: I showed the video of no-cussing to my students in class - they liked it


dave cormier: just checked seems they've put a preemptive lifelong ban on my username


PeggyG: When you use searchme and search your own name it is fascinating!


Alice Mercer: http://thinklab.typepad.com/think_lab/2008/06/diverting-from.html


Alice Mercer: How about that one...


Moderator: http://www.stevehargadon.com/2008/06/first-look-at-disrupting-class-by.html


congerjan: yeah... we will have all one-on-one learners soon...


PeggyG: What do you do with CoSN?


Bob Caro: I plan to put "earbud headphones" on my students school supplies list for the fall


Alice Mercer: http://thinklab.typepad.com/think_lab/2008/06/diverting-from.html


Alice Mercer: Why were we twittering each other at EduCon instead of talking to the kids


dave cormier: gotta go put oscar to bed... have a great day all


Alice Mercer: Night Dave


PeggyG: There was a great point made in the Brain Rules book/presentation about the fallacy of multitasking


Alice Mercer: I was never a hard core twitter person, so?


congerjan: For those of us that do not get to go to conferences, Twitter is a good way to keep up with those of you that get to go and on the presentions...


Alice Mercer: I use it to try to find folks


congerjan: I use it about once a day...


PeggyG: He says the brain is unable to multitask with efficiency and we tend not to do a good job--I'll give you a link to his preso


Alice Mercer: I open it up, but work is more engaging for me, than twitter. And that's a good thing, lol


Bob Caro: spreading your brain too thin...


Alice Mercer: Spreading our brains too thin, but not too thin for the younguns?


Alice Mercer: Oh, I discovered the local library for teen programming has video game nights


Alice Mercer: Wii night at local branch where i work


congerjan: I do agree that I can't twitter while I am working... but it is good for breaks...


Alice Mercer: Wanna link? I'll look


PeggyG: Productivity goes way down on important tasks when you are constantly interrupted with online things


Bob Caro: My school baits students intothe after school program with Guitar Hero


Moderator: http://www.pageflakes.com/NingDashboard/3363844


PeggyG: John Medina's video for Brain Rules http://youtube.com/watch?v=IK1nMQq67VI


clifmims: Peggy I don't think I ever solved that VT issue. Sorry.


Alice Mercer: http://www.saclib.org/evanced/lib/eventcalendar.asp


PeggyG: searchme even shows posts you've made on chats like ETT


Alice Mercer: Look up teen programs


Alice Mercer: You googling yourselves?


PeggyG: Big grin--who else???


Alice Mercer: Ed Tech talk, Dangerously Irrelevant come up, which is not surprising.


Moderator: http://www.commoncraft.com/show


PeggyG: Yes-new commoncraft video


Alice Mercer: The DABA link nicely enough


PeggyG: one of his better ones-like it better than social bookmarking vid


PeggyG: I also really like his podcasting vid


clifmims: Steve, I've been in and out tending to our youngest. Would you quickly recap your excitement regarding the Pageflakes doo-hicky?


Moderator: http://www.digizen.org


PeggyG: Alice what was the background on the link you shared-calendar


Moderator: http://www.polleverywhere.com


PeggyG: polleverywhere was used by David Warlick at AzTEA and everyone loved it


PeggyG: Oops-not David Warlick but Tim Tyson


PeggyG: cell phone polling


PeggyG: graph came up on the web which he showed to the audience


PeggyG: everyone who could text used it


PeggyG: about 600 people


clifmims: Steve, I've been in and out tending to our youngest. Would you quickly recap your excitement regarding the Pageflakes doo-hicky?


Alice Mercer: Pageflakes are SO good for that.


PeggyG: Could you show us your page Steve?


PeggyG: Pageflakes seems to have a lot of potential


Moderator: http://www.pageflakes.com/NingDashboard/3363844


Alice Mercer: http://www.pageflakes.com/default.aspx


clifmims: So, is that similar to hitchhikr as far as the NECC Pageflakes?


Alice Mercer: Wrong one, dont'


Alice Mercer: http://www.pageflakes.com/alice_mercer/16573397


Alice Mercer: There, that's it


Alice Mercer: sorry


Alice Mercer: http://www.pageflakes.com/alice_mercer/20942187


PeggyG: That's perfect for a template to borrow Guess we could do that with Durff's link also to modify it for ourselves


clifmims: Yes


Alice Mercer: And you can change column layout


PeggyG: Great idea! Can't wait to modify Durff's for me and 2008


clifmims: Hitchhikr compiles searches from Google blogs, Technorati, Bloglines and Flickr


clifmims: yep, here it comes


PeggyG: Alice that's a great pageflakes page! Do you have more than one?


PeggyG: Is hitchhikr a different kind of feedreader?


Alice Mercer: Peggy, OH YEAH! I've done them for a lot of projects


clifmims: PIDT 2008 via Hitchhikr http://hitchhikr.com/wordpress/?page_id=5&conf_id=374


Alice Mercer: http://www.pageflakes.com/alice_mercer/17462800


PeggyG: http://www.diigo.com/list/pgeorge/voice_thread-examples This is my list on Diigo for creating webslides on voicethread examples. The list looks good and links work, but when I view it in webslides the wrong page comes up for the classroom 2.0 slide.


PeggyG: Maybe someone can look at it and figure out what's wrong with it. Hope you can view it without logging in


Alice Mercer: Yep!


Alice Mercer: It creates a flake


Moderator: Peggy. CR 2.0 pulled up for me.


Moderator: The voicethread did.


Moderator: I didn't look at the slide show, but just clicked on the link in your diigo list.


PeggyG: Yes when you click on the link it worked. But when you run it in webslides, the home page for VT came up--at least for me


PeggyG: That sounds really good to get RSS feeds in pageflakes!


Alice Mercer: So Steve knows more about getting the source,


congerjan: Love the examples page Peggy


PeggyG: I have lots more examples to add but it's not working right for me yet.


PeggyG: what code do you enter for the RSS feed? subscribe code?


Moderator: Peggy--yes, confirmed the same behavior you are seeing.


Moderator: Goes to the home page.


PeggyG: Thanks a lot for checking! I'll ask someone at Diigo to explore it for me.


PeggyG: Price is right!


PeggyG: Yes me on VT


PeggyG: I can get direct links to work but I can't get them to work on webslides


PeggyG: I hope it's a glitch they can fix. I really want this to work.


PeggyG: Cliff I would appreciate anything you can share


Alice Mercer: I need to go, bye all!


PeggyG: The great thing about the Diigo webslides is that you can click on the web pages to demo them


PeggyG: Thanks for your great info Alice!


PeggyG: Thought you created it


PeggyG: It's an awesome VT


PeggyG: tons of people sharing how they're using VT in the classroom


clifmims: http://clifmims.wetpaint.com/page/IDT+7%2F8078


PeggyG: Thanks for reminding me Clif-I saw it but haven't added anything to it yet.


PeggyG: Wasn't it Kristin Hokanson who had a great blog post on copyright?


PeggyG: I have some links I can add to your site


suzanbrandt: WetPaint remove if you tell them it is for education.


PeggyG: wetpaint seems to look more like a blog page than a wiki-nice appearance


suzanbrandt: We went with Wikispaces vs. Wetpaint only b/c we could not turn off the comments at the bottom.


PeggyG: weebly.com is great!


suzanbrandt: Otherwise, I really love WetPaint. The team is great also.


suzanbrandt: Yes.


suzanbrandt: Yes.


suzanbrandt: They would not. They said it was not a true wiki model w/o it.


PeggyG: That's very interesting!


suzanbrandt: We were hoping they would change...


PeggyG: I've definitely learned a bunch today! Thanks everyone!


suzanbrandt: Thank you for all of your information! Very helpful.


Bob Caro: Thanks all - have a great week!


clifmims: bye all. was GREAT


PeggyG: bye all


PeggyG: I'll let you know if I find a solution from Diigo for VT
