24:53 - Peggy George

25:02 - Peggy George

25:15 - David@deedan100
We always complain about prices in Sourh Africa!

25:36 - Virginia McGregor
More people in India to hook on the sugar and caffeine

25:38 - Peggy George

25:48 - Sebastian Panakal 2
Does the prices compare with cost of living too? I wonder

25:59 - Peggy George

Yup they are plastic

Zimbabwe coke is the best!

28:20 - @bcdtech Maureen
I know that English Cadbury bars taste different than ours

28:28 - Peggy George
Sue Waters always raves about the chocolate in Australia :-) She brought me some and I agree!

28:28 - Kim T. AZ
This is a great idea that I am going to share with our IB schools!

28:36 - @bcdtech Maureen
Some countries use sugar, others use substitutes

28:44 - Peggy George (Cybermail Weblinks)

29:29 - Peggy George
perfect! insist on a collaboration to come out of the connection :-) really extends the learning!

29:34 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Didn't care for Vegemite which was shared with me by an Australian friend at ISTE one year.

29:46 - David@deedan100
I love live streaming to parents as well!

30:04 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I had the honor of taking Sue Waters for her first American hot dog while we were at ISTE.

34:14 - Peggy George
if you think you might like to participate in the Imagination Challenge this guidebook is excellent.

34:51 - Peggy George
hahaha :-)

34:53 - @bcdtech Maureen
There are really cool robots that are kind of like Segas that can connect with kids at home. The robot goes to school and the student at home can see/hear and communicate throughout the day.

35:10 - @plnaugle (Paula)
LOL I've eaten many of them too.

35:27 - Peggy George
if you have any questions for Steve as he shares his stories, please type them here in the chat and Lorie will ask him on the mic at the end of the presentation

36:22 - Peggy George

37:40 - @bcdtech Maureen

38:30 - Peggy George
Google Hangouts make it so easy to post the videos to youtube :-)

39:09 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I did a presentation for teachers in South Africa one time and had to remember to speak slowly since English was the third language of many of those participating.

39:14 - Peggy George
There were some awesome opportunities to participate with ISTE 2016 sessions via #notatiste16!

40:22 - Peggy George
We compiled a fabulous Livebinder of resources, video presentations, Periscopes, etc. from ISTE 2016!

40:28 - @plnaugle (Paula)
My students love when I run a competitive Kahoot game and we play against several schools at once. :)

40:34 - Peggy George
hahaha!!! slap your wrists now :-)

41:00 - Patti Ruffing
what is the normal school day in SA? How did you manage the time difference?

41:03 - @bcdtech Maureen
Haven't tried that Paula. My grade 4 teachers are very brave... will have to connect that way

41:11 - Peggy George (@LivingMaths Steve Sherman and Kahoot! CEO Johan Brand (@getkahoot) connected via a Google Hangout during EdTech day in Oslo to discuss the ‘Global Classroom’ campaign.)

41:23 - David@deedan100
Kahoot is so much fun,it should be illegal!

41:27 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Let me know when they are ready, Maureen.

41:42 - Kim T. AZ

42:00 - Peggy George

I connected with Thailand at 4pm my time and it was 7:00am their time (next day)

44:30 - Kim T. AZ
By chance, do you remember doing an interview, 3 or 4 years ago, for teachers in the Arizona? I think I met you via Skype in the Classroom and you got up in the middle of the night to talk with a group of our teachers.

44:38 - Peggy George
I included quite a few of these videos in the Livebinder but all of them are available on his website. (Video Interviews)

44:39 - Patti Ruffing
I did Istanbul but we had to come in early and they had to stay late

48:54 - @bcdtech Maureen

49:01 - Peggy George
Steve, how do you introduce yourself to these amazing people to get them to agree to be interviewed?

49:35 - Peggy George

49:42 - @plnaugle (Paula)

VAT value added tax

56:39 - Peggy George
very interesting! sugar tax!

56:55 - @bcdtech Maureen
If I wanted to share a link to the video interview on the 21st- where do I find the URL?

57:15 - Virginia McGregor
Good for tax since Coke is not good for you but the new chemicals will not be healthy either.

58:02 - Steve Sherman

58:20 - Peggy George
awesome! we can mention Steve's name!!

58:52 - Peggy George
what terrific advice! climb out of your comfort zone and take a risk

59:07 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Yes, we need to leave our comfort zone to grow and learn.

59:17 - Peggy George
what's the worst thing that could happen? they could say no :-)

1:00:04 - Peggy George
these stories definitely give us courage!

1:00:19 - Peggy George
they won't do it if you don't ask :-)

1:00:35 - Peggy George
