00:46 - Peggy George
hearing you great Paula

01:00 - Peggy George
Welcome Karla! So glad you could join us!

01:33 - Peggy George

02:00 - Peggy George
I was so inspired exploring all of the great things on Nate's website!

02:12 - Peggy George

02:43 - Peggy George
Paula, Thank you for your always great introduction!!

03:10 - Peggy George
such a good point about knocking down the classroom walls!

03:38 - Peggy George
great Nate! you found the arrows for the slides :-)

04:14 - Peggy George
I totally LOVE that avatar he adds to his slides!! So clever! I want to know how he did that!

04:24 - Peggy George

04:26 - Doug Henry (San Leandro CA)
Great use of brackets!

04:30 - @plnaugle(Paula)
I love Nate's avatar.

05:06 - Peggy George
that's what I was wondering!! Bitmoji!!! I'll add that video tutorial to our Livebinder after the show :-)

06:12 - Peggy George
this is such an awesome idea!!! everyone goes crazy over March Madness for basketball so why not for books???? :-)

06:12 - @plnaugle(Paula)
It is so exciting that we can take a project we do with our students in our class to a global level thanks to social media.

06:45 - Peggy George
2015 example from Nate:

07:20 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Love creating Google forms and so do my students.

07:46 - Peggy George
Are the picture books just for the younger kids or can students choose books from any of them?

08:06 - Peggy George
I would love to hear more about how the Hangouts worked with your students!

08:40 - Doug Henry (San Leandro CA)
This fits well with the presidential primaries

08:44 - Peggy George
helpful to know about the non-digital way to do the voting :-)

08:48 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Old school voting still very useful.

08:50 - Karla T
looks interesting! Do you expect the students to read or have read all the books they are voting for? What criteria have you developed for your students to evaluate the books?

09:09 - Peggy George
great questions Karla!! Lorie will ask them during Q/A

09:20 - Peggy George
wow!!! that's a lot of students!!!!

10:04 - @plnaugle(Paula)
It was a fantastic result for your first global adventure.

10:49 - Peggy George

10:59 - Peggy George
that video interview is in the Livebinder :-)

11:01 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Love that many authors will tweet when they see their books mentioned.

11:22 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Put this on your calendar for next year. I have!

11:33 - Peggy George
that must be a challenge to narrow down the books for the competition!!

12:07 - Doug Henry (San Leandro CA)
Do you ever have authors/publishers lobbying you? :-)

12:23 - Peggy George
There is a link to register right in our Livebinder (March Book Madness for 2016)

12:30 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Let's all help Nate and his students get even more participation next year.

12:43 - Peggy George (Mr. Balcom: NETA16-Nebraska Education Technology Conference presentation resources)

12:57 - Peggy George
his resources on that site for game-based learning are great!!!

13:32 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Do you create your own badges?

13:43 - Peggy George
When's the best time for us to tweet about next year's competition? I'm afraid if we tweet it now teachers will miss it since they're so busy at the end of the year.

13:44 - Doug Henry (San Leandro CA)
The college I where teach online is starting to gamify some courses...

14:08 - Peggy George
Pixabay is an awesome image site for free, creative commons images.

14:33 - Peggy George
that's really interesting!! difference between stickers and badges :-)

14:44 - Peggy George
Nate, what do your students do with their badges?

14:55 - Doug Henry (San Leandro CA)
You could print badges as temporary tattoos!

14:57 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Gamified homework - sounds very interesting.

15:26 - Peggy George
that's a powerful argument/rationale for differentiated homework via game-based learning!

16:47 - Peggy George
Nate, I see you have your students participate in the Global Read Aloud each year too. Is it hard to do both the March Book Madness and the Global Read Aloud?

16:54 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Are you doing anything with hyperdocs?

16:56 - Peggy George
Hi Minelle! Welcome!

17:20 - Doug Henry (San Leandro CA)
Any good general strategies for differentiating homework?

17:21 - Minelle 3
Thank. Sorry I'm abit late.

17:23 - Peggy George
students love that kind of challenge!! (unlike most adults) :-)

17:55 - Peggy George
Pernille Ripp did an awesome webinar for us a couple years about about the Global Read Aloud. The link to the recording is in our Livebinder today.

18:04 - Peggy George

18:14 - Peggy George (Global Read Aloud)

18:59 - Peggy George

19:28 - Peggy George
Nate, tell us about your iReading groups :-)

20:10 - @plnaugle(Paula)
How could one get started with gamified homework?

20:26 - Doug Henry (San Leandro CA)
Do you ever use eBooks and readers?

20:49 - Peggy George
Nate do you have an advisory team of teachers who help you plan and manage the March Madness Book event? Or do you do it all yourself? :-)

21:01 - @plnaugle(Paula)
How much access do your students have to technology at your school?

22:07 - Peggy George
that's what I was thinking!! Start really spreading the word after Christmas/winter break :-)

22:14 - Peggy George
Hi Eileen! Welcome!

22:42 - Eileen
So sorry I am late this week. Glad to be here😀

22:57 - Peggy George
so glad you could make it Eileen!!! Such a busy time for everyone!

23:00 - @plnaugle(Paula)
If I teach in a non-GAFE school, would it be worth my while to get Google certification?

23:13 - Peggy George
great question Paula!!! hyperdocs :-)

23:31 - Peggy George
we're hoping to have a show on hyperdocs! Possibly on June 4th. :-)

36:47 - Barb in Nebraska
Cann't figure it out

36:54 - Peggy George
Nate how did you get the local TV coverage for March Book Madness?

37:37 - Peggy George
it's always so challenging to get the local media to share the positive, good news about schools

37:45 - Peggy George
thanks Nate!

38:03 - Peggy George
probably easier in small communities than big urban communities :-)

38:11 - Peggy George
