16:07 to: Denise Krebs @mrsdkrebs
I love that, Angela. We can nurture concern, care, and empathy from the youngest age. Somewhere, like Angela is saying, we lose that and become apathetic.

the students may like Anancy stories (Anancy is a spider from Ghana)

I think we become distracted, and yes, apathetic at times, Denise..the passion lies there, dormant and we need to find a way to re-empower ourselves

18:06 to: Joli Barker 1
Creating a fearless world. Perfect!

18:25 to: Joan Young (flourishingkids)
This is so important.. knowing who else cares about our cause.. so empowering and such a life skill to collaborate

@stephanie -- and spread the word to those in YOUR networks who might be interested in joining the Quest...

31:59 to: Olga Isaeva
right

32:01 to: Stephanie
I agree totally! This is such a critical message.

32:23 to: Denise Krebs @mrsdkrebs
Mark, I like the explanation of June 7 is cut-off for this round awards, but you'll continue to tell the genius stories indefinitely! Another question, are you wanting projects in-process so they can

32:23 to: Denise Krebs @mrsdkrebs
be encouraged and mentored. Or are you celebrating finished works and mentoring about the future genius they will contribute!

32:35 to: Stephanie
Angela, you are amazing!

32:41 to: Peggy George
so we have NO excuses! Angela does this on top of everything else!!!!

32:46 to: Andrea Keller

Here is the fundraising link: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-quest2matter/x/2998105

That's an important point -- to retain ownership of the movement instead of abdicating it to a coprorate culture. Kudos.

It would be great for summer programs to get involved too..it's at the end of the school year for so many of us..would love to really focus on this at the beginning of the school year.

34:43 to: Mark Moran
We have two fundraising pages - Indiegogo and Student Launcher.

I was thinking pinterest too!

40:13 to: Christine Collins
beyond that many lose their comfort

40:22 to: @jackiegerstein 5
Edmodo?

40:25 to: Peggy George
we could start separate wikis to connect classes and post the links on Facebook

40:35 to: angelamaiers
Simple is critical! We are trying sooo hard to get to simple! Tried GoogleDocs, FB Groups, Message Boards, etc...We are open to any ideas! Check out Wiggio and let me know what you think as a communit

40:35 to: angelamaiers
y!

40:39 to: Peggy George
Edmodo would be a great place too!

40:40 to: McTeach (Karen)
@Jackie...I like the idea of an Edmodo group

40:52 to: Christine Collins
I will spread FB groups daily

40:52 to: Karen @klirenman
While I agree one place makes things easier, it is also important for people to join where they are most comfortable. We all need and learn differently and need and require spaces that best meet our i

40:52 to: Karen @klirenman
ndividual needs. Just something to think about.

40:59 to: @jackiegerstein 5
Yes - edmodo could be used by teachers AND students

41:07 to: Peggy George
Wiggio is great but not a lot of people are using it so all would have to join to be part of it

41:10 to: angelamaiers
GREAT Idea about Edmodo!

41:18 to: Peggy George
excellent point about students and Edmodo!

41:39 to: McTeach (Karen)
@Jackie...do you want to start the Edmodo group?

41:39 to: Michele Norman 1
Facebook can work really well with a common structure for posts, e.g.: 5th Graders/ Education for Girls, Africa

41:41 to: angelamaiers
We are trying to take the communities where kids and teachers are and then aggregate to Choose2Matter--so teachers do not have to add another platform or step to their life!

41:45 to: Andrea Keller
I had a chance to keynote about it :)

41:49 to: Karen @klirenman
Some love twitter, some are afraid of it. Some love face book, others see no point in it. So sometimes having your messages shared in a variety of spaces is a better way to meet the different needs.

41:54 to: Peggy George
I totally agree with your point @klirenman

42:03 to: McTeach (Karen)
The downside to FB is it might be blocked for some at school

42:06 to: Christine Collins
true about different modes

42:07 to: Joan Young (flourishingkids)
Great idea to build more structure during summer and fully launch when school resumes.

42:10 to: Michele Norman 1
Be great to enable teachers to share resources/planning tools -- connecting by grade and topic could allow that

42:13 to: Andrea Keller
very true @Karen

42:28 to: McTeach (Karen)
Stop it, Angela!!!

42:33 to: McTeach (Karen)
You're a genius!

42:44 to: Mark Moran
We appreciate all these ideas; this is exactly the support of input we need to figure out how to get people involved.

42:51 to: Karrie
Angela, we can create a private community for everyone to access similar to what we spoke about yesterday....

Choose2Matter YouTube channel

42:57 to: Gordon 1
Who else is doing similar wrk and environments? Models? List them out

43:00 to: Joan Young (flourishingkids)
We work in an education system that imposes limits on us so we need to share ways that we address/blow past these limitations.

43:00 to: Karrie
I'd be happy to help you set it up!!!

43:00 to: @jackiegerstein 5
:)

43:17 to: Peggy George
start typing on the whiteboard :-)

43:30 to: Peggy George
click on the BIG A without the lines

43:58 to: McTeach (Karen)
Yes, it's the end of the year and we're all swamped, but having something that excites us - like this does - can help keep us motivated!

44:07 to: Peggy George
we can also ALL share the Livebinder link with everyone and it will have all of the information people need to connect with the project

44:57 to: Mark Moran
If everyone in our network gave $5, this movement would be well funded.

44:58 to: @jackiegerstein 5
Ha! Cool!

ness in children and adults alike. U-education through collaboration marks the difference and ICT makes an important contribution. Edmodo ,for instance connects teachers,students and parents globally.

They can go to Yoursphere-

Thanks so much, for this wonderful chat.. Angela, Mark, Peggy and everyone,..I would love to help in any way I can..time for Kickboxing class! Have a great day, friends.

46:26 to: Mark Moran
Joan, very well said. This is an end-run around a system that doesn't allow for innovation or passion or individuality.

46:30 to: Peggy George
Hooray! Steve Hargadon is in the room! So glad you could join us Steve!

46:43 to: McTeach (Karen)
@Joan...have a great day!

46:53 to: Andrea Keller

47:43 to: Andrea Keller
Peggy I can't wait to share it!

@Mark, I don't think it's been shared yet.

47:46 to: Peggy George
the google doc will be shared later this afternoon-save the link!

47:53 to: Olga Isaeva

47:54 to: Stephanie
Access to the google docs is denied, so request sent.

48:04 to: Peggy George
I will put the Google doc in the Livebinder so as soon as it's made public you will see it

48:08 to: Mark Moran
OK sorry I will open the Google Doc up to everyone now.

48:14 to: blairteach
Thank you, Angela and Mark, for your commitment and for sharing with us today.

Oops. Too late. Must have missed that comment. Sorry.

SO AGREE!

1:07:18 to: angelamaiers
Thoughts?

1:07:19 to: McTeach (Karen)
We have to figure out how to present it to schools in a way that addresses all these standards we have to meet (unfortunately).

1:07:22 to: Arie Wels 1 #2
How about co-creation co-development by teachers?

1:07:26 to: Peggy George
that would be a great way to start Angela

1:07:38 to: Peggy George
we just need to make sure students have a way to connect too

1:07:48 to: Peggy George
a wiki could bring that all together

1:08:07 to: Peggy George
seeing the videos students are creating will inspire others to create them

GEN + I + US

1:08:55 to: Mark Moran
This is the coolest thing I've read all year.

1:09:22 to: angelamaiers
GReat point Karen-we can easly link these projects to the standards. It is digital literacy, digital citizenship, tech literacy, collaboration, 21st Century skills, content literacy, ....easier to hav

1:09:22 to: angelamaiers
e a list of standards it DOES NOT address! LOL! But definitely a doc we need to make explicit.

Did you see this video? http://bit.ly/I5f9cM (Dalton Sherman, 9 Yr Old, Keynote for Dallas ISD-I Believe in Me, Do You Believe in Me?)

1:12:06 to: McTeach (Karen)
Angela...it would be helpful to have something that teachers can just show any administrators who want to dismiss the idea automatically (like some that I know)

1:12:09 to: angelamaiers
Thank you Joli! You are GENIUS!

1:12:16 to: Peggy George
that's so true about the web tools :-)

1:13:02 to: Joli Barker 1
my pleasure :-) This is important work! I am all-in any way I can. ePals is Trust-E certified and has private emails, wikis, and moderated everything...and it is all connected to standards.

1:13:02 to: Peggy George
@Karen--do you think administrators would "get it" if you used either Angela's TED Talk or her recorded conversation with Peter Reynolds?

Intergrate appi of different open identity models, so it integrates with all others.

1:14:18 to: Karrie
YES... we can connect them together...

1:14:21 to: Peggy George

1:14:26 to: Peggy George
walking the red carpet!

1:14:44 to: angelamaiers
YES!

1:14:45 to: Peggy George
hearing great

1:14:47 to: Joli Barker 1
I have connections to web builders too...

1:14:48 to: Andrea Keller
this is so grass roots too though.. because as we make change we have to be passionate about what we are sharing

1:14:53 to: angelamaiers
HELLO!! my friend!

1:14:54 to: Karrie
dont hate me.... I'm going to attempt to mock something up for you this weekend....

1:15:07 to: Peggy George
fabulous @Karrie!!!

1:15:10 to: Andrea Keller
I LOVE trying new things.. but sometimes it is hard to get people on board :)

1:15:20 to: Joli Barker 1
Karrie, if I can help at all I will.

1:15:27 to: angelamaiers
Exact;y Andrea!

1:15:45 to: Mark Moran
This sounds like a blog post!

1:15:59 to: Mark Moran
Capture this in words and share it with the world.

1:16:02 to: Peggy George
there really is something every ONE of us can do whether we have students or not! we can spread the word with our PLNs, make a donation, offer our skills to create things and become a mentor for the s

1:16:02 to: Peggy George
tudent leaders!

1:16:12 to: Peggy George
yes that would make a great blog post!

1:16:25 to: angelamaiers
The important thing to communicate about the quest-is that it is an AGGREGATOR site that showcases our students ideas and work--teachers do not have to start or do anything....they just need to get th

1:16:25 to: angelamaiers
e pojects to the main site. They do not have to do anything new!!!

1:16:35 to: Peggy George
the global aspect of it is so powerful!!

1:16:44 to: angelamaiers
What our community does after the quest--we can decide later!

1:16:44 to: Andrea Keller
what if we pushed this to student councils.. and got students talking that way?

1:16:59 to: Peggy George
we should create some "template" letters for parents, teachers, etc. to help people know what to include in them

1:17:07 to: angelamaiers
OMG--that is a GREAT IDEA!!!

1:17:09 to: Peggy George
love the idea of student councils!

1:17:10 to: McTeach (Karen)
@Andrea I was just thinking the same thing!

1:17:17 to: angelamaiers
PEggy--YES YES!

1:17:36 to: Arie Wels 1 #2
Bring professionals in from outside your classroom... who can participate from the community or companies back into the schools, participating with projects from students that help real world problems

1:17:36 to: Arie Wels 1 #2
and thoughts from the students.

1:17:45 to: Andrea Keller
but then.. It needs to go farther than that.. for those students that might not have the opportunities to be a part of student council becuase of abilities?

1:18:02 to: Andrea Keller
what about getting a virtual tour with DEN?

1:18:10 to: Karrie
Joli - contact me @ kvitti@trainmyteacher.com :)

1:18:12 to: Peggy George
should we use Smore to create sample letters to share with parents, students, others? very attractive and very easy to modify if people want to start with the template and make it their own

1:18:14 to: Joli Barker 1
OMG ! Observing Major Genius! This is going to happen :-)

@Angela...did you do a blog post about heartbreak mapping? I need to figure out how to introduce it to the kids next week.

1:19:35 to: Andrea Keller
okay.. I SO want to continue this conversation..but I must be going :)

1:19:42 to: Andrea Keller
I was about to mention the Open World Project!

1:19:45 to: Andrea Keller
I LOVE KEVIN!

1:19:48 to: Peggy George
Kevin's son's project is amazing!

1:19:57 to: Peggy George
once you see what he is doing you WANT to donate to it!

1:19:59 to: Arie Wels 1 #2
A double perspective integration, topic/project expands the classroom walls and gets input from outside the classroom.

1:20:03 to: Denise Krebs @mrsdkrebs
I like that it will be ongoing, though. For now, has McTeach and Joli shared all the projects that have been done in the past couple years?

Does that make any sense?

1:20:23 to: Joli Barker 1
yes! www.fearlessclassroom.blogspot.com

1:20:26 to: Andrea Keller
this is what a 3rd grader in my school started :)
