murcha: It is a fabulous 11:58am and the sun is shining but we need rain

Leny: Thanks. I am not so good at this. I am new on this. I will try it.

hshawjr: steve - thanks for putting this on twitter to remind us.

ccapozzoli: so awesome!! would love to visit down under some time in my life time

murcha: @ccapozzoli Where are you from? Yes, our country is huge but it is so isolated but cr2 has brought us to the world

murcha: yes, can see the wiki and sound is great!

Barb in Nebraska: I'm always Barb in Nebraska

Kate Olson: Sorry, I'm from Wisconsin, didn't include that

cathywo: Cathy Wolinsky (cathywo) from Maine

Barb in Nebraska: Social networking is so much easier! In the old days of snail mail and now how fast it can be

murcha: I had trouble getting videos to load onto ipod and within mins on cr2.0 had the answer from Alabama, before any of my Aussie friends could reply and my classroom went as planned

gnoack: I didn't realize CR2 was so young. I got on in June of 2007, I though it had been around for a couple of years.

Ann-NJTechTeacher: Ann from New Jersey - The surprising thing about social networking is how "real" everyone becomes as you start interacting with them.

Barb in Nebraska: Yes, lots of ideas here on this wiki. Thanks

Kate Olson: let me know when I talk if it's really jilted, I have satellite connection, so have a tough time w/ audio

Suzanne Shanks: It's amazing how quickly things grow. Some of my favorite edtech bloggers I thought had been around forever, but weren't.

murcha: @gnoack I was the same. Think I jumped on in July or Aug

Barb in Nebraska: I'm going to meet my first Twitter friend in April at our tech conference

jonelle: Hi everyone- JoNelle in SC I see lots of you that I have worked with some this year!

lizbdavis: I think Twitter has become my new Classroom 2.0

Barb in Nebraska: birthday cake anyone?

murcha: I keep going back to cr2.0 and checking on the forums and discussions cos they are still really pertinent to me even though I have joined other ning sites too

lizbdavis: But I think it was a great launching pad

Kate Olson: I've actually stopped joining other nings right now, too hard to be involved in all

mrsdurff: my principal just joined classroom2.0

Suzanne Shanks: I must go, thanks Steve and everyone. Bye!

Ann-NJTechTeacher: I agree. I'm part of at least three, but I keep up more with Classroom2.0

helenotway: bye suzanne

lizbdavis: I've been creating classroom nings for my teachers. That is going really well.

mrsdurff: it's all about bringing people into the proverbial echo chamber

murcha: yes, cr2.0 is still superior and as I got so much out of it, I like to think that I might be able to help others with questions now.

hshawjr: Just trying to keep up with work and learning new tools, Twitter, Flock, etc.

jonelle: I dropped of of CR20 for a while, but have been back lately -durff and murch- I see you in here...hello

Kate Olson: I really like the real-time communication here

lizbdavis: It could be a good place to do demos of new tools

cathywo: CR 2.0 has been great for teachers to find other classes to connect for blogs or wikis.

mrsdurff: hi jonelle

murcha: Hello @jonelle still reading your posts. Hope we can keep wkg tog. loved our VT from last yr.

hshawjr: wow that would be great

jonelle: hi durff - have more teachers on board ready to branch out in technology...videoconference soon?

Kate Olson: I think web tools are extremely valuable for teachers even if they aren't able to use them in their classroom - great professional development

Lornacos: hurrah for parents

Barb in Nebraska: kate, that's so true. I have learned SO much

mrsdurff: elluminate with parents?

Lornacos: wow I would be so excited

mrsdurff: who would be teaching them how to do it?

Lornacos: there are very few places for parents to meet

jonelle: murcha- you have gone so far - very impressed, you encourage me from so far away!

Kate Olson: @elemenous on twitter needs help getting here - anyone want to guide her?

Kate Olson: I'm brand new and am not sure how I even made it myself

Barb in Nebraska: Kate, I just tweeted her to close out and try the link again.

Barb in Nebraska: Kate, I had the same problem

lizbdavis: Ann

helenotway: @murcha is Anne

murcha: Is it possible to run pd sessions so experienced web2.0 users could teach those who want to learn how to use VT and other tools etc

mrsdurff: well Anne aka murcha has her hand raised

lizbdavis: That would be very cool.

hshawjr: that is cool

murcha: Elluminate is a wonderful tool

Kate Olson: great idea Anne

Kate Olson: build a group of willing mentors

lizbdavis: I've been playing with diigo and just made a screencast about it. It would have been cool to get a group in elluminate to talk about it.

hshawjr: is there a way to use the web cams in elluminate? So we could see each other when were talking

murcha: oops dont think my audio is working so will just keep chatting away

lizbdavis: What time is that tomorrow?

Miz Mercer: Yeah, I'll miss that...

cathywo: A live sessiono on Diigo would help me.

jonelle: ann- great idea with VT -

Miz Mercer: Can only host be seen on webcam

derrallg: too early for west coast at 2:00

Sue Wyatt: Sue Wyatt, Tasmania Australia

murcha: Yes, and I keep talking and replying but noone hears me so will just chat and put my hand down.

murcha: How do I take my hand down?

hshawjr: murcha did you push the talk button

Miz Mercer: I can't do anything tomorrow at all.

Kate Olson: anne - did you have your mic on?

mrsdurff: YES!

lizbdavis: Yay! We hear you Anne

helenotway: we hear you Anne

mrsdurff: GO ANNE!

hshawjr: Yes

Lorraine: I like the idea of mini-presentations on particular web 2.0 tools. Twitter comes to mind for me. Twitter is something that I have no experience with, but am curious about. The wiki seems like an effective way to announce sessions such as this one.

murcha: hello you lot???>...

lizbdavis: Yes

murcha: tes I can hear you

Sue Wyatt: Yep anne

jkrauss: Hi everybody!

Barb in Nebraska: @lorraine, Twitter is really fun and easy

jonelle: great idea ann, that is how I learned videoconferencing from SC, with patient educators in australia

hshawjr: Lorraine - I just started to really use Twitter on Sunday, I like it so far look at Clay Burells latest Blog it gives a good hint or two

Kate Olson: kind of - the times didn't work, but i really want to in the future

ccapozzoli: i have been giving open pd in my schoo dist and would love all of you to join

lizbdavis: Timing problems for me

Lornacos: I know that parents are not the target audience but if they are given the same tools it will help raise the awareness about teachers using these tools in the classroom

lizbdavis: That is why I think it would be cool to be able to do this more spontaneously

Kate Olson: need multiple time options for any OpenPd, no?

derrallg: i like the idea of Open PD but same as Liz the time wasn't right for me

murcha: wow Hello Steve

lizbdavis: We see you Steve

helenotway: no didn't see you Anne

Lorraine: I used Learningtimes Elluminate open classroom for awhile and found that if you'd like a group and another one is in there, it can be a little confusing. Having a scheduled session seemed to work out better.

mrsdurff: ah! we each control our own color

Lorraine: Black and white cam is on.

murcha: Hello lenva from NZ I am from Australia

Lisa Thumann: @mrsdurff - That didn't work for me.

murcha: Depending on the workload I would be happy to be part of the panel.

hshawjr: I think the geographic regions is a good idea

lenva: hi murcha nice to meet you

Lisa Thumann: I'll DM you in Twitter - maybe we can figure it out that way.

Kate Olson: one huge problem with volunteer panels is the follow-through - need to make sure we have enough people that action occurs

adinasullivan: Events and forums re: current ideas on twitter, blogosphere, etc. are helpful

murcha: Web2.0 is starting to take off in Australia

adinasullivan: It's had to keep on your own

adinasullivan: it's nice to have other's feedback

kstashuk: I'd like to read a post on how people are using twitter. Everyone seems to think it's better than sliced bread, but i just don't see it.

adinasullivan: live events/discussusions are good

Kate Olson: great idea, Steve

ccapozzoli: would love to participate in a panel...

kstashuk: has anyone written about it?

murcha: @adinasullivan I agree, I had to work by myself and you feel like giving up until you get a good social network and then you cant stop

zemote: is elluminate painfully slow for everyone else?

lizbdavis: @kstashuk did you see the link I dropped in earlier in the chat?

Barb in Nebraska: @kstashuk, I love being able to see what's new and read new blogs

lizbdavis: http://edtechpower.blogspot.com/2008/01/getting-started-with-twitter-screencast.html

adinasullivan: informal would be good. regulars would come back

Jane Lowe: I would have missed this forum if I hadn't been on Twitter today

mrsdurff: i move that we do that - do i hear a second to the motion?

Lisa Thumann: @kstashuk Don't give up - it took me a month before I saw the true value

Barb in Nebraska: @jane, that' true

lenva: @kstashuk I love being part of a network get latest ideas on the spot

Sue Wyatt: I only started with Web 2.0 in January and it was great to get help from Sue Waters in Edublogs

Sue Wyatt: then having to start your own PLN

kstashuk: @barb would being subscribed to the rss feeds procudce the same result?

Kate Olson: I want to go to NECC!!!! any corporate sponsors here?

Kate Olson: j/k

Lornacos: happy birthday to you

adinasullivan: An informal meeting at NECC would be good too

kstashuk: @liz, thanks liz. saw the mention but missed the link the first time

murcha: Is there a cake. I think I have eaten too much chocolate over Easter

Barb in Nebraska: @kstaahuk, not really, because I get new blogs on twitter

Lornacos: happy birthday to you

lenva: I would be interested in being part of the panel

derrallg: I can't turn myself off

jkrauss: oh fun! predictions

Lornacos: happy birthday to CA2. 0

hshawjr: I would like to be part of the panel

murcha: Well, Steve I would have a go on the advisory panel if you would like?

mrsdurff: then murcha send me your chocolate

helenotway: i think it may take off more here in OZ

Cathyjo: Prediction: CR2.0 will create a new ning called CR2.5

Kate Olson: prediction: more web tech will be mandated, requiring more professional development

adinasullivan: Web 2.0 will be critical do to budget issues (CA)

mrsdurff: oh smile derrall

murcha: I cant believe where I have come in a year and would never have dreamed that I would be where I am today

jkrauss: More open 'vote with your feet' pd coming

lizbdavis: @CathyJo LOL!

Lornacos: I think classroom blogs will be the norm

mrsdurff: a delicious account?

adinasullivan: You can't take in everything

jkrauss: good question!

murcha: Yes I worry about shear volume of info too

gnoack: small rural districts are going to be playing catch-up

murcha: I have to stop from joining too many groups

adinasullivan: a group delicious account mioght be nice

Cathyjo: Like Pownce??

Barb in Nebraska: People do seem to move on

Leny: Bye.

murcha: How can you tell who is talking? Is there an indication on elluminate

lizbdavis: Flock is interesting because it combines different tools

jkrauss: lit mic

adinasullivan: That is a consideration!

lizbdavis: LIsa we could never lose you.

lizbdavis: Yes I do

murcha: Oh okay, I had to scroll down to see the active mic

Barb in Nebraska: I worry that I have too many friends and I'll not be able to keep up

hshawjr: just started using flock and twitter this weekend

lenva: @murcha look at the mic symbol at the top left panel

Sarah S: It may be confusing regardless. Cross-posting is kind of key.

jkrauss: someone was pointing me to an aggregator of aggregators -- was that flock?

spooferkd: What tools do you all find the most helpful?

gnoack: @lisa.. I know exatly what you are talking about. twitter went down for maintence for a day and many people moved to Pounce.

lenva: I still like google reader

lizbdavis: Diigo definitely has potential

jkrauss: del.icio.us, skype, IM, wiki and blog

jonelle: volume is a problem in my district- they do not want us to videoconference, but we are trying to add more....I agree with the volume of tools. more and more. this is what scares non-techie types

derrallg: We need to continue to evolve along with the tools

lenva: using all the tools in e-portfolios

mrsdurff: i don't feel like a minority

Sue Wyatt: I think we need to be teaching principals and parents about Web 2.0

Cathyjo: Yep I am campaigning on my end for the tools

murcha: I am sure that many creators of software have no idea where that software ends up until people use it and push it to the limits

Lisa Thumann: It is difficult to keep up

adinasullivan: We are definitely in the minority!!

Cathyjo: had someone ask today what is CR2.0

Barb in Nebraska: Twitter is blocked at my school

Cathyjo: OpenPD THIS WED

gnoack: @barb Me 2

hshawjr: agreed

lizbdavis: Yes - that was my last blog post

Sarah S: So much is still blocked in so many schools.

lenva: @barb in nebraska - mine too, but I use twitbin addon for firefox

murcha: My students push software to the limits and find things I would never have dreamed of.

lizbdavis: It didn't go over too well.

mrsdurff: @liz who are you losing?

Cathyjo: Darren Draper/Robin Elis hold your hand in OpenPD

Barb in Nebraska: @gnoack, so is Google images

Kate Olson: did anyone hear me?

Sarah S: Twitter works for me through pageflake widget at school.

Moderator: Yes, Kate.

Lisa Thumann: Excellent point = a more constructivist approach

lizbdavis: @mrsdurff - I'm not going to lose lthumann (the other lisa)

gnoack: I think in the next year we need to see school district open up to the idea of Web 2.0 and social networking in the classroom.

Moderator: Loud and clear.

lizbdavis: @mrsdurff - or you either

adinasullivan: We have to be clear about how the tool meets the standards

ccapozzoli: baby steps in important, but showing students how to create and use the tools that are out there will help to get them started.

Cathyjo: no fear of failure

Barb in Nebraska: @lenva, I tried by using Twhirl at school and it didn't work

murcha: That is where Steve's idea of experience tchrs helping newbies to use and accept web2.0 through cr2.0 is so vital

spooferkd: How do you overcome administrative resistance and so much blocking?

mrsdurff: i wish my chat would advance when people post

lenva: no I can only use twitbin because it bypassing the filters

jkrauss: do you share moderation?

Lornacos: I think that the upton issue will go away when parents understand the tools

murcha: I can never forget the experienced people who have helped me out and will always try and give a hand to those who may need help

jonelle: true about al's issues. this is why we need to keep going and educate others

Barb in Nebraska: @lenva, Thanks, I'll check that out

gnoack: @barb, we have google images, we have the filter set to it's highest setting and we have never had any 'incidents'. I think it is important in our school to think about this and have the filter because we are working with elementary kids

helenotway: i think we will be sorters!!

mrsdurff: i get lost without it auto updating

Cathyjo: Absolutely SH--must develop a comfort in a few then move on

adinasullivan: There has to be time for LIFE also

Lisa Thumann: @spooferkd:teach the admins the tools

murcha: And establish partnerships with parents, our educational departments and other teachers

Sarah S: cr2.0 works as an "answer bank" for me - go, search tags, find answer - which is really helpful
