Hi Peggy!! and all!
01:11 - Fabiana Casella (Argentina)
Thanks for sharing!:)
02:07 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Lisa is fabulous. :)
02:19 - Dejan Kreculj

Lisa is one of my DEN tweeps!
03:43 - Susie @shighley
Wow! Top 50 Global. Congratulations.
04:06 - Stella Maris Berdaxagar 1
Sorry I am late. I was unable to log in before.
04:07 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Yes indeed. Congratulations, Lisa.
04:14 - Peggy George
Sorry for my raspy voice!! It's not your audio!!
04:54 - Peggy George
2006-07 were the first years I discovered Web 2.0 too! My beginnings were in following podcasts :-)
04:57 - Annette Whitby
Web 2.0 means millions of ways to connect.
05:07 - Peggy George
great description Annette!!!
05:32 - Annette Whitby
05:35 - Peggy George
This is the link to our Livebinder today where you'll find Lisa's resources.
05:53 - Peggy George
that's a great answer Lisa!

2007 for me. Started in order to connect with granddaughter [and monitor :) ] with Twitter -- discovered a new world of educators !
06:55 - Peggy George
conferences have changed so much over the years!
07:00 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Yes. Alan November is awesome.
07:05 - Peggy George
07:15 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Love Alan November. He is so inspiring!
07:18 - Annette Whitby
07:20 - Peggy George
Hi Stella! Welcome!
07:33 - Peggy George
oh no!! berated???
07:41 - Peggy George
he is passionate!!!
08:33 - Peggy George
it's hard to keep up with blogging when you are involved in so many things on top of teaching all day every day!
08:48 - Lorie Moffat
08:59 - Susie @shighley
Yes. We see Peggy!
09:01 - Fabiana Casella (Argentina)
It sure is, Peggy!
09:14 - Fabiana Casella (Argentina)
Hi Stella Maris!
09:21 - Peggy George
09:28 - Peggy George
that is Lisa's Twitter page :-)
09:57 - Peggy George
with app sharing sometimes your page will load slowly
10:21 - Peggy George
5933 followers! :-)
10:29 - stidmama
Passion should not be an excuse for rudeness. I think he must not be in touch with some of the realities of teaching in places like I do. The school doesn't own a single webcam for skyping! I have to submit a support ticket to get one installed... skype will happen if and when I can afford one on my own. :-(
10:33 - Peggy George
and 15,000+ tweets!!!
10:48 - Peggy George
great point stidmama!
11:34 - Peggy George
have any of you ever downloaded your Twitter archives? It's incredible to see all of your tweets from the beginning!
11:48 - Peggy George
(Responsive Classroom Site)
11:59 - Peggy George
Hi aunttammie! Great to see you!
12:14 - Peggy George
go right ahead Lisa--just tell your story!
12:38 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Yes, Peggy, I've downloaded my Twitter archive. It took a long time since I have over 35K tweets.
12:51 - Peggy George
me too Paula :-)
12:59 - aunttammie
THanks, I'm running a bit behind today!
13:22 - Peggy George
13:30 - Stella Maris Berdaxagar 1
13:52 - Annette Whitby
Thx for teaching me about the archive download feature for Twitter. Didn't realize this!
13:56 - Peggy George
Looks for Lisa's earlier podcasts "Teachers are Talking" and "It's Elementary" :-)
14:07 - Patti Ruffing
Something that maybe Lorie could ask Lisa at the end: What is the flow in her school, do the students do similar activities in 4th grade and 6th grade or is her classroom unique in her school. Do they all do global activities, blog, etc.
14:32 - Peggy George
Lorie will ask your questions at the end of Lisa's presentation :-)
14:55 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Hi Louise! :)
14:56 - Peggy George
15:12 - Peggy George
Hi Louise! So glad you could join us!
15:22 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Mindsets and mandates are blocks to tech integration
15:35 - Peggy George
15:50 - Peggy George
what an awesome learning experience!
15:50 - Annette Whitby
What a neat way to explore these topics.
15:51 - @mrsmorgansclass -Louise
Hi Paula! Trouble getting on. Changes with Java and Chrome.
16:03 - Susie @shighley
I had to update my java too
16:41 - Peggy George
yes Louise! java is always changing! You have to go to the login link to download a new file for every session or you will have problems getting into the current session
16:59 - Peggy George
17:00 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
I switch from Chrome to Firefox for CRLive or videos. Chrome is not working well with Yosemite.

18:22 - Peggy George
yes Louise! hope your bandwidth is OK with app sharing on your iPad
18:55 - stidmama
I am so glad that you were able to use a current event to trigger and support extra learning. It can be so hard to deviate from "the plan" nowadays, even when something really devastating happens. Love how the narrative of the process is helping me think about what to do next year.
19:04 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Louise, are your students doing a Cinco de Mayo presentation this year?
19:14 - Peggy George
19:40 - Peggy George
Yes @stidmama! That makes the learning so authentic and powerful! They will always remember it!
20:32 - Peggy George
Lisa can you describe what happens in a responsive classroom? for teacher and students
20:47 - Peggy George
21:00 - @mrsmorgansclass -Louise
@paula. No not this year.
21:10 - Lisa Parisi
21:21 - Peggy George
I'm curious how you make connections between your responsive classroom and your global connection experiences. :-)
21:50 - Peggy George
great point! self control has everything to do with empathy
22:03 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I think these kinds of projects are what should be happening in every school. I've had a buddy Skype classroom in Kansas since 2009. Reach out and start by finding one other class to connect with via Skype or GHO.
22:21 - Peggy George
22:45 - @plnaugle (Paula)
You can cover so many Common Core standards with these kinds of projects.
23:04 - Peggy George
23:19 - Peggy George
23:37 - Peggy George
so many great learning experiences in that project!
23:50 - @plnaugle (Paula)
@Louise, I remember watching your students performance before. Sorry it is not happening this year, but I understand.
23:53 - Peggy George
great point Paula about the standards!
24:20 - @mrsmorgansclass - Louise 2
We skyped with Karen last week - One of my groups is researching Rhinos. We got the traveling rhino last year but I wanted my kids to learn about the rhinos. We used all of the great classroom created resources on the wiki.
24:32 - Peggy George
did any of you get to participate in the Save Our Rhinos global project?
24:34 - Susie @shighley
I'm finding that connecting with Skype, etc is helping students' questioning skills
25:04 - @mrsmorgansclass - Louise 2
fun! My kids love showing our guests our Peace Video.
25:11 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I'll need to share a memorable Skype call between Lisa's class and my class at the end of the show.
25:32 - Peggy George
There is a great video in our Livebinder today about the Global Friendship project. Be sure to watch it later and you'll learn all about it.
26:17 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Students become better listeners and speakers when you do video conferencing with ohter classes.

That song makes you feel like dancing :-)

30:09 - stidmama
Love how reaching out means that the kids have a bigger idea of the world, as well as of themselves.
30:35 - Peggy George
thanks Tammy! it wasn't going back for me :-(
31:16 - @mrsmorgansclass - Louise 2
Our participation in the Peace day video was a great start to our new school year. We worked together as a team and bonded. it also helped them feel connected to all of the other classrooms in the video.
31:52 - Peggy George
Thanks for sharing Paula! Love these stories!
32:27 - Peggy George
32:32 - @mrsmorgansclass - Louise 2
We participated in Paula's Mardi Gras a few years ago - poor connection but great to see how hard the students work to present their projects.
32:41 - Peggy George
32:45 - TIZIANA ANGIOLINI
We call such skills citizenship skills and life skills and in EUROPE we have guides and financial help to promote such projects within EUROPE and also with other nations outside EUROPE. I am pleased to see that your kids are learning such important skills
33:23 - Peggy George
that's fantastic Tiziana! how great that you have funding for those kinds of projects!
33:57 - Peggy George
Paula please post your Mystery Hangout link :-)
34:50 - @plnaugle (Paula)
My Mystery Location Call Google site -
35:03 - @mrsmorgansclass - Louise 2
We mystery skyped with Lisa's class early in the year.After finding our locations, her class looked up our school on Google Earth. Lisa pointed out that our playground looked like a big smiley face from above. Since then, my kids like to tell everyone that our playground smiles :-)
35:05 - Peggy George
accents can be such a challenge in these calls :-) so much fun!
35:21 - Peggy George
35:27 - Peggy George
35:36 - @mrsmorgansclass - Louise 2
We always have to be careful not to say "ya'll" during our mystery skypes.
36:26 - Annette Whitby
36:27 - Peggy George
what kind of "backup" plans do you have when your internet connection fails you during your Mystery Skype calls?
36:33 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Yes, Louise, us too. I have to remind my students not to say y'all when we do Mystery Skype calls. :)
37:03 - Peggy George
37:22 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Yes can do Mysrtery Number calls too.
37:57 - Peggy George
oh no!!!! fire drill!
38:00 - Peggy George
38:17 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I've had to remind some teahcer to change their info on their Skype contact page to not include their location if they want to do Mystery Skype calls.
38:35 - Peggy George
sounds like you just need to be flexible :-)
39:10 - @mrsmorgansclass - Louise 2
I did Mystery Skype via Voxer with another teacher because they had a power outage and no internet.
39:28 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
great idea louise!
39:33 - @mrsmorgansclass - Louise 2
39:38 - Peggy George
Lisa can you give us a quick description of some of the other projects on your wiki
(Wiki for Lisa Parisi’ collaboration projects--synchronous and asynchronous collaboration projects that are implemented in her classroom)
39:44 - Fabiana Casella (Argentina)
That is super @Mrs Morgan

Yes it really is a problem
40:14 - Peggy George
That wiki is amazing and a great place to start exploring possible ideas for global collaboration!
40:26 - Peggy George
40:46 - Peggy George
do you all know what quad blogging is?
41:17 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I love having teachers sign up for Impromptu Skype calls at the end of our school years (after testing is over). We've had some great impromptu calls with classes we've connected with more formally during the year.
41:25 - Annette Whitby
No. Haven't heard about quad blogging.
41:33 - Peggy George
41:47 - Peggy George
Lisa please explaing quad blogging :-)
42:16 - @mrsmorgansclass - Louise 2
Sometimes I wish my 2nd graders were a little older...
42:20 - Peggy George
43:07 - @mrsmorgansclass - Louise 2
btw...you weren't muted. LOL!
43:07 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Being a globally connected educator makes it easy to find others to do projects with.
43:14 - Peggy George
43:23 - Peggy George
now we all know what was going on :-)
44:04 - @mrsmorgansclass - Louise 2
Mrs. Wideen does a similar project for younger grades.
44:07 - Annette Whitby
Ahhh, okay. Thx for the explanation.

47:14 - Patti Ruffing
I moced to google docs from wikispaces for group work because of the ability to have simultaneous editing
47:16 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
That is awesome!
47:48 - Peggy George

48:00 - @mrsmorgansclass - Louise 2

54:16 - Peggy George
Thanks Lisa! We'll wrap up now! Love hearing about your resources and experiences!
55:03 - Lisa Parisi
Tiziana, it takes as long as it used to when I just planned lessons. Once the project is set up, all the work is done on my end. Then the kids get going.
