04:28 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Agree @plnaugle Paula! Thanks to CR Live

04:51 - Peggy George
I typed my entire doctoral dissertation on an electric typewriter. So glad we have computers now!!

05:30 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN)
I just found a dot matrix printer in a maintenance office this past week..LOL :)

05:30 - Peggy George (Twin Bridges School Library Media Center-Jamie's school)

05:43 - Peggy George
Hi Nenad, Sara and Marc. Welcome!

06:02 - Peggy George
I love Montana! I was born and raised in Kalispell, MT. :-)

06:12 - Peggy George
Hi Corki! Welcome!

06:22 - Nenad Đpić

06:43 - Peggy George
I love hearing these personal stories because we can all relate to them!

07:12 - Peggy George
do your schools call your librarians "teacher-librarians"?

07:22 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
That's funny Glenn. dot matrix still around...

07:38 - Peggy George
does it still work Glenn? :-)

07:51 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Our school still uses the term librarian.

07:55 - Peggy George
Hi Doug! So glad you could join us!

08:11 - Doug Henry
:-) Me too!

08:12 - Peggy George
ipads really make it easy to go paperless :-)

08:13 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN)
Peggy, haven't hooked it up, but I think it does. Was hooked up to a Windows 98 computer...another relic!

08:23 - Peggy George

08:56 - Peggy George
how exciting!!! so glad you were able to find funding for your ipads!

09:03 - Susie @shighley
Wow, Peggy. From MT to AZ. You really turned up the heat!

09:36 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Thanks to DonorsChoose I have 8 new Chromebooks this year to add to my 12 Dell netbooks.

09:46 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN)
Start with what you have and use it well...great words to live by!

09:57 - Patti Ruffing
@Paula - congrats on acquiring the chromebooks

10:25 - @plnaugle (Paula)
@Patti I did it one Chromebook at a time starting last January.

10:40 - Patti Ruffing
@Paula, yes I remember, you worked hard for them

11:17 - Peggy George
if you need ideas for fundraising there are some excellent resources on Pinterest!

11:40 - @plnaugle (Paula)
@Patti being a connected educator and having a wonderful PLN was very helpful with getting them funded. :)

11:50 - Peggy George
I love that she includes a calendar on her library page so teachers, parents and students can see all of the great things going on in the library!

13:05 - Amy Paden 1
The live google calendar is helpful when a teacher is trying to find more time with Mrs. Reynolds in the library too! ;)

13:17 - Peggy George
Shelly Terrell has created a great Pearltree with ideas and resources for finding funding for technology in your classrooms.

13:26 - Peggy George
great point Amy!!

14:03 - Peggy George
so important to let kids teach each other :-)

14:38 - Peggy George
yes :-) So great to have you with us Amy!

15:07 - Peggy George
I love the quote by Joubert: "To teach is to learn twice." :-)

15:14 - Amy Paden 1
Great to be here! So lucky to have opportunity to work with Jamie!

15:44 - Peggy George
this is really the heart of what's important about the use of technology!

16:13 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN)
Many of my district's teachers still don't get this. But we're making progress.

16:48 - Peggy George
hahaha! I can relate to that when you labor over your writing and you finally feel finished, you don't really want to go back and edit again. Technology makes it so much easier!

17:08 - Peggy George
When they publish and share it outside of their own classroom they want it to be their very best!

17:39 - Susie @shighley
I don't know that I realized it was available for PC

17:44 - Amy Paden 1
We r talking about digital natives here too: this really is their comfort zone and I feel we must honor that!

18:02 - Peggy George
I've heard Rushton Hurley frequently say that when they publish for themselves or for their teacher it has to be "good enough" but when they publish for the world they want it to be great!

18:24 - Peggy George
such an amazing tool!

18:45 - Peggy George (Educreations)

18:59 - Peggy George (Teachers’tories of how they use Educreations from visualizing an atom to math to using it for flipping the classroom or for sub plans)

19:18 - Peggy George
isn't that a fun idea!! "the day the crayons quit" :-)

19:29 - Peggy George (3rd Grade Opinion on The Three Little Pigs)

19:44 - wfryer
1 of our 6th grade social studies teachers used Educreations a few years ago in a Dell computer lab for country reports, just needed headsets w mics & ppt presos saved as jpg images

20:05 - Peggy George
if any of you have links you can share of student examples of any of these tools please add them to the chat and I'll add them to the Livebinder

20:16 - Peggy George
great to know Wes!

21:04 - Peggy George
Jamie makes her library such a comfortable place to learn and create! awesome role model!

21:10 - Amy Paden 1
Lucky for me my stuff is on Jamie's website! It is amazing!! Please don't forget to visit

21:10 - Peggy George (1st Grade Response to “he Day the Crayons Quit.”

21:42 - Peggy George
thanks Amy!!! There are so many great examples and resources on the website!

22:21 - Peggy George (3rd Grade Famous Montanans Unit - Jenneatte Rankin Example)

22:40 - Peggy George (Explain Everything App)

22:40 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Love Explain Everything

23:04 - wfryer
Yes - you can get a volume purchase discount for explain everything too

23:24 - Peggy George
Got to hear the creator of Explain Everything this week in the ISTE Encore presentations. He was in the ignite session :-)

23:25 - Patti Ruffing
They must have lowered the price

23:45 - Peggy George (3rd grade Explain Everything Catalog To Shelf Tutorials)

24:00 - Peggy George
love that idea!!!

24:33 - Amy Paden 1
Educreations is much improved in it's free version now vs 1 year ago...if u haven't tried it for awhile, u should revisit and I think u will be pleasantly surprised :)

24:59 - Peggy George
thanks for that tip Amy!

25:58 - Peggy George
sometimes (often) kids have a way of explaining things to other kids that make it easier to understand! love it when they get the opportunity to do that!

26:20 - Peggy George (iMovie App)

26:33 - Peggy George
iMovie has gotten so easy to use!

26:47 - Peggy George (6th Grade Book Trailers with Animoto & iMovie)

27:05 - Peggy George (Animoto)

27:10 - Susie @shighley
Yes, so many things we take things for granted and leave out details that are important to students

27:20 - Peggy George
exactly Susie!!

27:24 - Susie @shighley
Oops- so many times....

27:57 - Peggy George
From Jamie: (Good example of “tudent-created image” citations)

28:03 - Clarissa
Where do you keep there finished projects? The pics and videos take up so much room.

28:13 - Peggy George
great question Clarissa!

28:41 - Peggy George
we'll ask your questions during Q/A. Lorie is saving all of them :-)

28:45 - Clarissa
I mean their finished projects...

29:21 - Peggy George
that is so true! images and video definitely evoke emotion and it's not the same emotion for everyone so it gives you lots of things to talk about!

29:34 - Peggy George (KidBlog)

30:34 - Peggy George
what a great way to approach it! in a year from now what will it look like?

30:41 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
For book reviews, we used keynote and uploaded to Vimeo:

30:51 - Peggy George
thanks Sheri!!

31:16 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
We created the videos in Photo Booth and dragged them into the Keynote slide.

31:30 - Patti Ruffing
that is what I did, I changed the name of the class blog to the graduation year so that the kids could keep their work from year to year as a portolio; doing it by grade you could transfer the kids but their work doesn't go with them

31:39 - Peggy George
love it!

31:44 - Amy Paden 1
Pre-planning is so important! If setup isn't how u want it, increases frustration! Definitely want to think long-term!

32:01 - Peggy George
great tip Patti! Hadn't thought about that but it makes so much sense!

32:39 - Peggy George (Single entry point for our KidBlogs)

32:52 - Peggy George
these examples are so helpful!

33:26 - Peggy George
what a great tweet that was Wes!! so true!!!!

34:19 - Peggy George
if you expect perfection it definitely limits them and they only use words they know how to spell.

35:10 - Patti Ruffing
Teachers may feel that way because some people unfortunately judge what is happening in the class based on what they see published, and think the teacher is not teaching skills but they don't know the teacher's philosophy regarding the publishing of student efforts

35:11 - Amy Paden 1
The most important thing is to try! I don't care about spelling in 1st grade...I just want to hear their voice! Unfortunately as teachers there is a pressure on us that we r bad teachers if our kids aren't perfect :( SO UNTRUE!!

35:17 - wfryer

35:48 - Peggy George
Jamie do you post anything on your blogging site that lets viewers know that these are authentic writings and may include things that aren't perfect?

36:03 - Amy Paden 1
Agreed patti! :)

36:12 - Peggy George
Paula I think you have done something like that--a disclaimer.

36:37 - Peggy George
that is so true Patti!

36:42 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
on my blog "We are all learners. Please be patient with us."

36:47 - Amy Paden 1
As the 1st grade teacher I did write a blog post on our kidblog about the philosophy ;)

37:10 - Peggy George
love that idea Sheri!!!

37:25 - Ellen
Over editing before publishing can steal writing and expression time

37:25 - Patti Ruffing
Think how many blog posts we have read by well-respected educators who end up publishing with typos. We don't think anything less of them, just admire the passion they have for their topic.

37:30 - Peggy George
can you share a link to that Amy? would love to see it.

37:59 - Ellen
Love the idea of questions on the blog

38:10 - @plnaugle (Paula)
@Peggy, no I haven't put a disclaimer on our blogs but will do so after today. Learn @Sheri's comment.

38:16 - Peggy George (Links to Voki pumpkins)

38:45 - Peggy George (Links to first grade polar animal unit)

38:56 - Peggy George (Link to 4th grade book reviews)

39:32 - Peggy George
that's an impressive amount of writing and love the original drawing!!!

39:56 - Peggy George
such great advice!

40:46 - Peggy George
once the kids learn how to do all of that in the library they can go back and teach other kids and teachers how to do it in their own classrooms :-)

41:08 - Amy Paden 1
It's not a specific disclaimer but it is my passion about blogging with firsties :)

41:11 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN)
Great to see librarians like this stepping it up! What a great way to encourage teachers.

41:55 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Love watching the students develop as writiers over the school year when they blog. First posts are usually very short but get longer as each month passes.

42:01 - Peggy George
that's so exciting that they want to continue to write from home! grandparents LOVE that! I sure do!

42:39 - Amy Paden 1
Thanks to Jamie and our kidblog our students have true ownership in their education!

43:00 - Peggy George
if your students are blogging you should participate in #comments4kids to get lots of responses to their blog posts :-)

43:24 - Peggy George (Little Bird Tales)

43:33 - Amy Paden 1
I have been interested in this Peggy! Gotta do it!!

43:37 - Peggy George (Voki)

44:08 - Peggy George
Voki is so much fun! I've seen teachers do their welcome to their blog/website with Voki and the kids love it!

44:30 - Patti Ruffing
One of my 8th graders was surprised to receive a comment from the person whose CC photo she used in her post. I explained how important it was to use the photo acc to license terms, and also the idea of pingbacks...good lesson for them

44:44 - Peggy George (Links to Voki pumpkins)

45:05 - Peggy George
that is so cool Patti!!! The perfect way to learn about that!!

46:33 - Amy Paden 1
They were asked to journal about their Voki experience...definitely resulted in reflection and self evaluations also encouraged creativity, not necessarily perfection!

46:48 - Peggy George
that's one of the reasons it is sometimes better not to create a model for them to learn from because they may only copy it and not feel comfortable moving on to create their own ideas.

46:57 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN)
Learn to share....share to learn...mantra I learned from ETMOOC a couple ofyears ago.

47:12 - Peggy George
I love the reflection time you spend with your first graders Amy!!! So valuable!

47:42 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Great mantra @Glenn. :)

47:49 - Peggy George
I agree Glenn!! I started using the mantra "Educators who care, share" since ISTE last summer!

48:07 - Peggy George (Weebly Website Builder)

48:11 - Amy Paden 1
Love the mantras! :)

48:15 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Thanks for the memory Glenn: Learn to share...share to learn.

48:25 - Patti Ruffing
@peggy What was the name of the site that was mentioned in a recent show where students could indicate which books were awesome and they appeared on the teacher's site?

48:30 - Peggy George
Weebly is really easy to use! We use it for our Classroom 2.0 LIVE website and recording archives. :-)

48:37 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN)
Peggy, I'm adding that one to my repertoire :)

48:40 - Patti Ruffing
I use Weebly, very easy to use.

49:05 - Peggy George
I'm thinking Patti. There were several.

49:26 - Patti Ruffing
ISBN was scanned and that's how they were put on the site

50:02 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
I have homepage google site for our class lessons and a blog for class news, but I need to make one to share just our class projects and to highlight our blog posts.

50:07 - Peggy George

50:16 - Peggy George (Jamie’ blog: Twin Bridges Library Connection

50:18 - Lbott
I agree wholeheartedly; a library website makes a huge difference!

50:23 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
I can share a link quickly and easily then without worrying about an explanation.

50:29 - Peggy George
love that thought! "protect your inspiration" :-)

50:48 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN)
Weebly is a great platform, and the one I teach freshman high schoolers to use. So many skills in Digital Citizenship embedded when we do website building.

50:52 - Peggy George
great idea Sheri!!!

51:09 - Amy Paden 1
My firsties automatically get logged on to a computer and go to Jamie has done a great job I making this a place where kids know they get where they want to and find the answers they need! Powerful!

51:12 - Peggy George
Weebly is a great site for creating student eportfolios too :-)

51:34 - Susie @shighley
And we're all still learning

51:39 - wfryer
I love that encouragement to "Be brave!" Yes!

51:53 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN)
@Amy - Entry points like this make things so nice for students AND teachers. P:)

52:03 - Peggy George
collaboration is so important!!!

52:12 - Ellen

52:14 - Peggy George (Kindergarten “on’ Let the Pigeon Check Out a Book)

52:38 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Wow! Virtual applause for Jamie and all she does and shared with us today. I'm inspired! :)

52:42 - Lbott
Great job!

53:00 - Susie @shighley
Thanks, Jamie. Take a minute to catch your breath!

53:01 - Peggy George
wow Jamie!!! Such a fantastic presentation!!! So encouraging and inspiring!

53:08 - Amy Paden 1
The deepest and most meaningful learning occurs for my students when Jamie and I collaborate because my idea morphs with her ideas and it's bigger and better than it ever would have been on my own! Inspired daily!!

53:12 - Clarissa
Jamie thanks for sharing so many ideas. I'm looking forward to trying some your ideas!

53:25 - Peggy George
I love the term teacher-librarian :-)

53:27 - wfryer
Great job Jamie, Amy & other Twin Bridges teachers!!!

53:29 - Kathy W 1
Do you work at different sites/buildings or are you housed in one location? Do you have assistants on staff?

53:50 - Ellen
Thank you, Jamie! Will check out the educ relations site.

54:08 - Ellen
That's creations

54:13 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN)
@Amy - I'm sure Jamie loves collaboration with you and other teachers more than you might realize. It's definitely my fav :)

54:40 - Patti Ruffing
I used to pay by the class for kidblog but they changed their pricing structure so one teacher can have multiple classes, for $35

54:41 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Google Apps for education has unlimited storage now for education.

54:52 - Peggy George
after one of our webinars I discovered the SanDisk wireless flash drive and it is perfect for saving things from an ipad to transfer to your computer, blog, etc. Works great!

55:04 - Peggy George
that's good to know Patti!

55:05 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN)
Definitely, Sheri. So easy to store and share from Google Drive.

55:09 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Most ipad apps will save to Google Drive

55:40 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN)
Wireless flash'll have to check that out, Peggy!

55:46 - Peggy George
I'll find that link on Jamie's blog and add it to our Livebinder.

55:51 - Clarissa
@ sheri can you share imovies on google drive?

55:53 - jpeters
Great Webinar; so many helpful tips!

56:00 - Amy Paden 1
Wes, thank you! Honestly! You really gave us the initial inspiration and courage to move forward! Thank you a million times over!

56:12 - Peggy George
My wireless flash drive is 64 GB and holds tons of things. Definitely saves room on ipads!

56:31 - Peggy George

56:43 - Clarissa
Oh, I never thought of that thanks Peggy

56:54 - Peggy George
that's the way it is in smaller schools :-) everyone does everything :-)

57:02 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
If you can upload it, you can save it. Then if you link to it, it should play.

57:03 - Susie @shighley
Thanks for the reminder Peggy. Something for my christmas list

57:09 - Patti Ruffing
great resources, thank you

57:13 - Doug Henry
Thanks - great cr20!

57:41 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
clarissa just try it.

57:49 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN)
@Clarissa - you can play many different video formats right from Google Drive - pretty sure I stream .mov files from GDrive

58:08 - Glenn Hervieux (@SISQITMAN) is amazing!

58:10 - Susie @shighley
Thanks so much! I have relativevs in Three Forks, not too far from you, but I know there's probably interesting terrain in between

58:20 - Clarissa
