    Hi Maureen.
    01:52 - Patti Ruffing
    ;)
    02:15 - Susie @shighley
    Greetings from central Missouri. I'm driving from Kansas City to Indianapolis

    02:40 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    Finally got my chat window set! Hello everyone and good morning from Oklahoma City :-)
    02:47 - @bcdtech Maureen
    @Peg Volak- my friend in Brazil... https://twitter.com/HZalcberg Tell her I sent you :>)
    02:47 - Peggy George
    We are so excited to have Ken here with us to share some awesome things he is doing in his classroom with flipped learning!
    03:02 - Peggy George
    Hooray Wes! So glad you could join us!
    03:09 - Peggy George
    Welcome Eileen!!
    03:20 - Eileen
    Hello Everyone!
    03:27 - Peggy George
    Hi Susie! Great to see you!!!
    04:05 - Peggy George
    I always love hearing the different responses to this question from our featured teachers!
    04:11 - Susie @shighley
    Tried to get in here on time, but the next McDonald's was farther down the road. Nice to know that we can stop there for wifi.
    04:43 - Peggy George
    haha Susie! That's perseverance!!!
    04:46 - Peggy George
    yes Ken!!
    05:30 - Peggy George

    05:50 - @plnaugle (Paula)
    We will not be able to use wifi in our classrooms during April, as our 5th graders do their state testing online. Not sure how I'm going to cope with that. My students use our Chromebooks about 50% of our class time.

    Love that picture!!!!
    06:08 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    Sorry to hear about the other host Internet problems! Glad you have BlackBoard Collaborate superpowers, Peggy!
    06:28 - Peggy George
    Paula, that is so sad! But it happens everywhere!
    06:34 - Peggy George
    thanks Wes!
    06:52 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    @plnaugle that is terrible, Paula... what a case of the tail wagging the dog with testing :-( Yuk.
    07:18 - @bcdtech Maureen
    @paula- locking down computers for state testing is a big issue. If the powers that be expect tech integration... what- we put it on hold for a month or 2? Craziness!
    07:22 - Peggy George
    We have included some great resources for flipping in the Livebinder but if you have any you'd like to share please type them in the chat and I'll add them to the Livebinder.
    07:25 - @plnaugle (Paula)
    April is going to be a long month. :(
    08:10 - Peggy George
    Ken's website resources for flipping: http://ken-ehrmann.weebly.com/flipped-instruction.html
    08:33 - Peggy George
    I love hearing these kinds of stories!
    09:32 - Peggy George
    those are great categories for thinking about ways to group students for instructional purposes!
    09:51 - Peggy George
    http://ken-ehrmann.weebly.com/blog (Ken’ blog)
    09:53 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    thanks for sharing the links in chat as always, Paggy!
    09:54 - Peg Volak
    Yeah Susie! Life without wifi is tough!
    10:00 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    Peggy!
    10:00 - Peggy George
    you're welcome!
    10:08 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    :-)
    10:12 - Peggy George
    Hi Cristina! I'm so happy to see you!
    10:52 - Cristina Serafim
    Thanks Peggy! I'm eager to learn from Ken.
    11:10 - Peggy George
    Welcome to everyone joining us today! You will find all of Ken's terrific resources for flipped learning in our Livebinder. http://www.livebinders.com/play/play?id=2174468
    11:20 - Peg Volak
    This is the link to our Livebinder today: http://www.livebinders.com/play/play?id=2174468
    11:35 - Peggy George
    Please type any questions you have for Ken here in the chat and I'll ask him on the mic during Q/A.
    11:46 - Peggy George
    Thanks a lot, Peg.
    12:02 - Peggy George
    the color coding is really helpful!
    12:25 - Peggy George
    pretty amazing! 1 minute transitions!!!!
    12:46 - Peggy George
    Welcome Barbara!
    12:51 - Barbara Isasi-Brown
    Got here a little late, but thank goodness for archiving.
    13:19 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    yes, woo hoo rewindable learning :-)
    13:25 - Peggy George
    student late arrivals can be such a challenge!!!
    13:33 - Peggy George
    yes Wes! love that term!!!
    13:47 - @plnaugle (Paula)
    I have 4 groups in my ELA class- Blue, Green, Orange and Red Ninjas.
    13:58 - Peg Volak
    1 minute transitions is rough for 2nd; We can't get 3 groups into math just yet!
    14:00 - Peggy George
    love it Paula!
    14:33 - Peggy George
    hahaha!!! the dreaded fire alarm!!!
    14:38 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    Paula we still need to get a connection going with your class and @sfryer before the end of the year... Here' an idea for your month without Internet: Can you Facetime over cellular with your iPhone at school?
    14:56 - Peggy George
    the big disaster is when the fire alarm goes off during standardized testing!!
    15:09 - @plnaugle (Paula)
    @wfryer Yes, I should be able to do that.
    15:19 - Peg Volak
    ....your month without internet...so this is by choice?
    15:41 - Peggy George
    love that analogy!! serving vanilla ice cream!!!
    15:44 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    Paula's district is limiting Internet use for a month for student testing
    15:57 - @bcdtech Maureen
    @Paula- you will only need to lock down kid computers that are used for testing... correct/ not teachers
    16:00 - @plnaugle (Paula)
    @Peg V No, we aren't allowed to use wifi while our 5th graders do online state testng.
    16:13 - Barbara Isasi-Brown
    jeez
    16:24 - Peg Volak
    Oh!! You do online testing, makes sense! That's rough!
    16:26 - Eileen
    Ambitious
    16:29 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    You have iPads as well as Chromebooks, Paula?
    16:37 - Amy R
    We're the same during testing - no devices, even phones on wifi during state testing.
    16:45 - @plnaugle (Paula)
    @Maureen, no device including cellphones not being used for testing cannot be on our wifi.
    17:05 - Peggy George
    that is definitely a powerful purpose for considering flipping your class!
    17:29 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    deciding to flip to better differentiate is definitely a great "Why!"
    17:39 - @bcdtech Maureen
    @ Paula- this is our 1st year with the CBT... they are using Chromebooks in kiosk mode... as far as I know- will only take those computers out of circulation- not take everyone off wifi
    17:41 - @plnaugle (Paula)
    @wfryer, I only have one personal ipad but it is only wifi enabled.
    18:08 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    Hmmm - rest of your student devices are Chromebooks?
    18:30 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    the video is working for me!
    18:38 - Doug Henry - San Leandro, CA
    Works here...
    18:39 - Peg Volak
    Looks good
    18:46 - Janet P
    Works perfectl
    18:46 - Janet P

    18:48 - @bcdtech Maureen
    Are you asking me or Paula. Wes?
    18:56 - Peggy George
    First Flipped Intro https://youtu.be/uc76H85t-MY
    19:02 - Susie @shighley
    Paula, are there any wired connections?
    19:05 - Ken Ehrmann
    the first two minutes is all that matters
    19:15 - Peggy George
    hooray! so glad it's working for you!
    19:57 - Peggy George
    love how these videos can be so personalized!!!
    19:58 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    The video is horizontally flipped though... I'm guessing that's an inadvertant "flip" here?!
    20:12 - Peggy George
    on purpose Wes :-) teaching point :-)
    20:20 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    :-)
    20:37 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    just got to that part!
    20:38 - Doug Henry - San Leandro, CA
    cool!
    20:39 - @bcdtech Maureen
    Watching on youtube- but where is it on the Livebinder? I Must have missed the directions... on the main page
    20:50 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    on the tab "Video: First Flipped Intro"
    20:52 - Peg Volak
    Ken, your favorite TouchCast?
    20:52 - Peggy George
    http://www.livebinders.com/play/play?id=2174468
    20:55 - Ken Ehrmann
    one more minute and then we will regroup
    21:31 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    I have played with TouchCast a bit too... Our teachers who are doing the most Flipped Learning in math now (Algebra I) are using Explain Everything to create videos.
    21:37 - Peggy George
    this is a great example for introducing flipping to students!
    21:43 - Doug Henry - San Leandro, CA
    Great video!
    21:55 - Ken Ehrmann
    I think we can move back to the slides Peggy
    21:57 - Peggy George
    Hi Russel! Welcome!
    21:57 - @bcdtech Maureen
    Thanks Wes- I wasn't paying attention to directions.
    21:57 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    Peggy can you embed a Safeshare.tv video link on LiveBinder?
    22:03 - Peg Volak
    We need a TouchCast Ambassador on the show, Peggy! (Ken??)
    22:07 - Peggy George
    yes Wes :-)
    22:11 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    @bcdtech :-)
    22:13 - Janet P
    GREAT!
    22:18 - Cristina Serafim
    Really cool!
    22:25 - @bcdtech Maureen
    Never even thought about backwards words
    22:38 - Peggy George
    that's how we learn by doing!!! :-)
    23:12 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    We've had that image reversal problem also with students using "Green Screen by Do Ink" and having students do weather / meteorology reports... don't have a solution to that yet, actually
    23:26 - Peggy George
    this is such a reassuring video for teachers who are thinking about trying flipping because it shows they don't have to be "perfect" :-)
    24:19 - Peggy George
    We won't show other videos during the webinar but when he talks about specific video examples they are all in the Livebinder.
    24:39 - Peggy George
    All of these videos for "the journey begins" are in the Livebinder.
    24:42 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    Jonathan Bergmann who was an early math class flipper also burned DVDs for students without home Internet access..
    25:01 - Peg Volak
    This is the link to our Livebinder today: http://www.livebinders.com/play/play?id=2174468
    25:38 - Peg Volak
    That's my hesitation....it has to be "perfect!"
    25:43 - Barbara Isasi-Brown
    I did that also- and did home visits to show my families how to use. But now, after working with families, all my families have internet.
    25:59 - Barbara Isasi-Brown
    oops- the also was burn DVDs
    26:05 - Peggy George
    This is Jon Bergmann's Flipped Learning Global website. Fantastic resources! http://flglobal.org/
    26:20 - Susie @shighley
    When I saw Bergmann several years ago, the two things he said that really stuck with me were 1) to not worry about making the videos perfect 2) you are doing this to maximize the quality of the time you get to spend with students
    26:32 - @plnaugle (Paula)
    With older students, they could make the flipped videos to really show what they "know" to share with others.
    26:58 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    wow I hadn't seen his new website Peggy. thanks https://twitter.com/jonbergmann
    27:15 - Doug Henry - San Leandro, CA
    How do you enforce or encourage student compliance in watching the videos at home?
    27:24 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    @shighley those are great points to emphasize!
    27:31 - Peggy George
    I curate a scoop.it that has several years worth of resources for screencasting and flipped learning. Lots of tools and tips! http://www.scoop.it/t/screencasting-for-online-learning
    27:33 - Peggy George
    Aaron Sams
    27:37 - Cristina Serafim
    Having a growth mindset is the key! Not being perfect.
    27:59 - Peggy George
    I've been following Jon and Aaron from the very beginning of their flipped journey!
    28:39 - @plnaugle (Paula)
    Dr. Lodge McCammon taught us at a Discovery Education Summer Institute to do one-take videos. Perfect is not necessary.
    28:39 - Peg Volak
    https://goo.gl/msybqk Lots of books offered!
    29:22 - Peggy George
    that is such an important message for students!!! you trust us!
    29:34 - Cristina Serafim
    Beautiful!!!
    30:03 - Peggy George
    this really captures the homework dilemma!!
    30:15 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    Ugh... these anti-change rants can be really frustrating
    30:53 - Peggy George
    please type any questions you have for Ken! A perfect opportunity for us to pick his brain about flipping!! :-)
    31:24 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    Lodge is a gr8 flipped learning evangelist as well - love the way he encourages whiteboard use. Great to follow: https://twitter.com/pocketlodge
    31:56 - Peggy George
    Ken, do you ask students to take notes or write reflections on the videos?
    32:38 - Peggy George
    Welcome TeachAbroadNetwork :-) Thanks for joining us!
    33:06 - Peggy George
    Ken is so good! He can present and follow the chat! Wow!
    33:54 - Peggy George
    the application is really the key point!! that's how they can really internalize the learning!
    34:24 - Peggy George
    Flipped instruction will give you the freedom & time to do all the amazing things you learn at the best conferences #liveclass20 @KenEhrmann
    34:34 - Peggy George
    Tweet that out :-)
    35:10 - Peggy George
    how you use the class time is the critical point!
    35:25 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    just tweeted it! https://twitter.com/wfryer/status/845677105312616450
    35:43 - Peggy George
    thanks Wes!!!

    36:27 - Peg Volak
    Love the 3D printer challenge at the bottom!
    36:34 - Peggy George
    love that!!! Baskin Robbins!! really shows the variety of learners we have!
    36:42 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    Ken: Have you experimented with tools like https://www.playposit.com so students have to answer questions periodically during your videos?
    37:01 - Peg Volak
    or Nearpod?
    37:27 - Peg Volak
    Peggy, that is exactly our classrooms! Baskin Robbins!
    37:39 - Peggy George
    :-)
    37:54 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    yes like EdPuzzle!
    38:42 - Peggy George
    it's great that Ken has such a flexible model for flipping!
    39:11 - Peggy George
    These lesson format example videos are both in the Livebinder.
    39:29 - Peggy George
    All of these examples are also in the Livebinder
    39:36 - Doug Henry - San Leandro, CA
    Do you ever have the students create video lessons?
    39:36 - Peggy George
    Have any of you used Touchcast?

    40:15 - Cristina Serafim
    Peggy, your Scoop.It Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning is simply amazing! Thank you so much for sharing!
    40:23 - @bcdtech Maureen
    I've played with touchcast, but never used it with kids

    Do you post on Edmodo, Google Classroom? Where do your students access their work?
    41:28 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    The new version of Explain Everything does have some cloud hosting subscription options. Classic version is still available which is buy-once. New version has pretty slick collaboration features
    41:33 - Peggy George
    haha Peg!!! you're a mind reader!
    42:03 - Peggy George
    I didn't know about the subscription service, Wes. Thanks!
    42:40 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    Ken have you tried using Safeshare.tv links when you send YouTube links to kids?
    42:45 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    It's a game changer
    42:51 - Peggy George
    that explanation was really helpful!
    43:02 - Barbara Isasi-Brown
    Yes- thank you for your comment on use and referring to Youtube.

    @Peg we have a middle school language teacher who has done some experimenting with the new EE and collaboration slides. Need to troubleshoot with him - I think it taxes WiFi heavily.... very promising tho.

    https://classroom.google.com/ (Google Classroom)
    44:20 - @plnaugle (Paula)
    I started with Edmodo and have stayed with it because our school district doesn't have Google Classroom.
    44:25 - Peggy George
    Ken, I'm really curious how you organize your Google Drive for all of your resources.
    45:57 - Peggy George
    aha. Thanks!
    46:03 - @plnaugle (Paula)
    Glad that soon individual teachers will be able to set up Google Classroom.:)
    46:38 - Cristina Serafim
    Thank goodness for that, @plnaugle!
    46:45 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    I just learned about 'Google Team Drives" on the GAFE admin podcast - sounds like a great tool for classrooms too https://gsuite.google.com/learning-center/products/drive/get-started-team-drive/

    48:35 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    Ken can you speak to the value of your students hearing YOU explain lessons instead of just using videos created by other folks - like Kahn Academy. Do you use both?
    48:38 - Amy R
    Thanks! I'm excited to try a few lessons before the end of this year!
    48:44 - Cristina Serafim
    Really enlightening!Thanks so much!

    What would be the lowest grade level you would use the flipped classes with?
    49:23 - @plnaugle (Paula)
    Thanks so much, Ken. Great and useful presentation. :)
    49:27 - Peg Volak
    Amy, Ken has always told me start small! The end of the year is a great time to try !
    49:54 - Peggy George
    great advice Peg!

    Thanks. Just listened to a Larry Ferlazzo BAM radio episode where one of the speakers indicated the biggest problem she faced was time.- If this can give me more time to (do all the great things).,, I am excited.
    50:54 - Peggy George
    thanks!
    51:40 - Peg Volak
    You can use the expert screencasters in your videos next year as samples!
    52:02 - Peg Volak
    Ken, speak about your AM announcements & the kids' work
    53:05 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    good tip on having students create their own Educreations channels!
    53:56 - @plnaugle (Paula)
    @Maureen, if I use quiet in front of YouTube vid link will it play at my school is YouTube is blocked?
    54:22 - @bcdtech Maureen
    I don't know... It is not on a youtube page... but try it
    54:43 - Peggy George
    safeshare.tv works great too
    54:49 - @plnaugle (Paula)
    Thanks, Maureen. I definitely will check it out.
    54:57 - Peggy George
    but if youtube is blocked none of those tools will work.
    55:22 - @plnaugle (Paula)
    I have tried safeshare.tv but it doesn't work at my school. Peggy.
    55:30 - Peg Volak
    It is pretty impressive to watch these kids come in and run the show!
    55:31 - @bcdtech Maureen
    @ Paula- I was an MASScue thing a while back and got some great tips... put pwn in front to download, put gif in front to open a gif maker for the video... I can send them to you or put them here

    excellent pd
    56:10 - Peg Volak
    Thank you, Ken! Excited to try more!
    56:17 - Russel
    thanks
    56:20 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
    thanks everyone!
    56:21 - @plnaugle (Paula)
    Would love to have you share those, Maureen.
    56:27 - Eileen
    You have inspired me to try some of your activities. Thank you Ken😊
    56:37 - Cristina Serafim
    It's been wonderful! Thanks a lot for so much food for thought!
    56:52 - @bcdtech Maureen

    Your tweets, Peggy, are reminders for this special day for me!

    Where's Susie?
    02:22 to: Peggy George
    What an awesome job description Horacio!
    02:44 to: Peggy George
    Susie wasn't able to be with us today due to a memorial service for someone in her family.

    I'm so grateful for all of the ways we can communicate with parents--both tech and non-tech!

    thanks Horacio!

    I think that parent engagement is different than parent involvement. It's much more than getting parents to volunteer at school but to invite and value their input for school decisions.
    08:32 to: Peggy George
    in spite of the research there are still many schools that just rely on parent-teacher conferences and printed newsletters--mainly one-way communication.
    08:46 to: Peggy George
    Hi Terri G. Welcome! So glad you could join us!
    09:35 to: Peggy George
    That quote by the teacher was so true! A lot for teachers to juggle!!

    There are a lot of great resources about Bloomz, even short video tutorials, on our Livebinder today. http://www.livebinders.com/play/play?id=2174468
    12:14 to: Peggy George
    Many years ago our school used a telephone hotline for teachers and the principal to send out recorded messages to parents. Not very effective because it was only one way and once you listened to it (if you did) it disappeared.
    12:52 to: Peggy George
    Laura is going to do some screen sharing to demonstrate some of these features to make it really clear. :-)
    13:41 to: Peggy George
    Love that they have 2-way messaging and that you can share student work with the parents!!!
    14:19 to: Peggy George
    What a simple way to have a portfolio of your child's work without having to create a separate portfolio!
    15:56 to: Peggy George
    If you have questions as we go along please type them in the chat. Then Laura will know what you would like to see her demonstrate with screen sharing. :-)
    16:41 to: Peggy George
    Do students need to create accounts on Bloomz?
    17:38 to: Peggy George
    I first learned about Bloomz from Vicki Davis. She raves about it in her podcasts almost every week!
    17:40 to: Laura Briggs
    Students do not create accounts but they have a way to login with a QR code to post their work to their timelines.
    18:41 to: Peggy George
    Laura please explain that further when you take the mic again. :-) What if they don't have mobile devices to read QR codes?
    18:54 to: Anthippi Harou 1
    Does each parent see only their child's portfolio or all the students' portfolios?
    19:19 to: Peggy George
    I'm sure parents love having everything in one place and it's more likely they won't miss important news and information about their child's life at school.
    19:21 to: Laura Briggs
    Parents can see only their own child's portfolio.
    19:44 to: Peggy George
    This is awesome! Lots of great awards!!
    19:48 to: Anthippi Harou 1
    Thank you, Laura!
    20:46 to: Peggy George
    I love that they were chosen as the Winner of 2016 Best at ISTE!!
    20:48 to: Peggy George
    An anonymous panel of these educator judges selected products by scouring the exhibit hall floor during ISTE 2016, which featured 500 companies sharing solutions with more than 16,000 educators. The judges rated products on quality, effectiveness, ease of use, and creative use of technology.
    21:25 to: Terri G.
    Very cool! The other App that I am using does not offer video. My kids are special ed and hands-on learners. I need this video option💗
    21:48 to: Peggy George
    What can a teacher do if a parent chooses not to join Bloomz (lack of technology or maybe even lack of knowledge about how to use it)?
    22:06 to: Peggy George
    Video is absolutely a deal-breaker!!! :-)
    22:33 to: Peggy George

    23:04 to: Peggy George
    if you have a mobile device handy download the app and follow along.
    23:16 to: Terri G.
    That's a tough problem. I always feel bad that I can give as much to those 2 parents. I do my best!
    23:26 to: Peggy George

    23:55 to: Peggy George
    you can also do this on your computer in a separate tab
    24:36 to: Peggy George
    We are planning to keep this Bloomz group going for Classroom 2.0 LIVE so we can keep sharing things with each other after the webinar (about any of the tech topics we have on our shows). :-)

    Class access code: CLASS2
    25:12 to: Peggy George
    if you have questions or run into snags let us know
    25:22 to: Peg Volak
    Wait...if I'm on Chrome, am I a student or teacher? (Teacher)
    25:26 to: Peggy George
    I got a head start. :-)
    25:59 to: Terri G.
    On phone. Will need to sign up later😄
    26:26 to: Peggy George
    I'm very excited about that possibility!!! I would love to have some of you play on Bloomz with me. :-)
    26:53 to: Peggy George
    these instructions are in our Livebinder too if you want to try to do this later.
    27:12 to: Terri G.
    Thanks!

    lots of webinars to learn about Bloomz
    28:05 to: Peggy George
    how cool! boy and girl scout troops are using it!
    28:51 to: Peggy George
    Is there a way for parents to combine multiple groups in their account like school, teacher, boy scouts, clubs, etc.?
    29:11 to: Peggy George
    You're doing great Laura!!! Crossing fingers for screen sharing!
    29:33 to: Peggy George
    seeing that great! I hope all of you are too.
    29:42 to: Peg Volak
    Funny, I thought of the track car pool when you mentioned the girl scout troops!
    29:48 to: Peggy George
    hahaha
    30:00 to: Peggy George
    that is awesome! all of your groups right on one screen!
    30:41 to: Peggy George
    Don't worry! We won't be taking attendance or recording your behavior on our Classroom 2.0 account :-)
    30:42 to: Terri G.
    Is her page not sharing?
    30:49 to: Peggy George
    Hooray Paula!!!
    30:57 to: Lorie Moffat
    I see limited access, and can't see what you are sharing.
    31:11 to: Peggy George
    Terri, are you not seeing her screen?
    31:43 to: Terri G.
    Correct. Is it because I am not on the app?
    32:12 to: Peggy George
    oh I think we have to approve your posts before they display. Let's ask Laura.
    32:50 to: @DrThomasHo (Indiana) #2
    Verify me
    33:06 to: Lorie Moffat
    I think I need verified too.
    33:12 to: Lorie Moffat
    That's all I can do.
    33:52 to: Peggy George
    Did you get an email to verify your account Lorie?
    34:00 to: Lorie Moffat
    Refreshing the page worked.
    34:31 to: Terri G.
    I got the comments. Just not her sharing the app.
    34:50 to: Terri G.
    Slides were showing.
    36:03 to: Peg Volak
    This could be a party invite / sign up for food??
    36:29 to: Peg Volak
    nice!
    36:35 to: Peggy George
    Terri that may be bandwidth on your mobile device. App sharing definitely requires more bandwidth.
    36:46 to: Peggy George
    it will all be in the recording too.
    37:14 to: Terri G.
    Thanks for everything Peggy😄 will check out the recording.
    37:40 to: Peggy George
    that would be a great way to get parent helpers for a school party!
    37:59 to: Peggy George
    is everyone verified now?
    38:35 to: Peggy George
    hahaha! sign up to bring chocolate to our party!!
    41:55 to: Peggy George
    what awesome volunteers you are!
    42:18 to: Peggy George
    love that we can get reminders automatically
    42:55 to: @plnaugle (Paula)
    Of course I'll bring the chocolate syrup. :)
    43:39 to: Peggy George
    whew Paula!!! I couldn't figure out how to add that to the list of items needed :-)
    46:08 to: Peggy George
    love that idea!!!! take a picture of the sight words and record their voice!
    46:22 to: Peggy George
    what a time saver for teachers!!
    46:46 to: Peggy George
    it helps the students to become very self-directed, independent learners!!
    47:54 to: Peggy George
    if there is only one ipad or smart phone in the class (teacher's) can that be used to take the photo of the work so the student can post it on Bloomz?
    48:27 to: Peggy George
    what a cute idea! growing flowers!
    48:55 to: Peggy George
    fantastic demo Laura!!! Thank you!
    49:16 to: Peggy George
    Lorie will get on the mic to ask our questions now.
    49:27 to: Peg Volak
    It's like a Seesaw and Class DoJo, Sign-up Genius all in one...
    49:33 to: Peg Volak
    Free is great!
    50:11 to: @plnaugle (Paula)
    Virtual applause for a great demo, Laura.
    50:20 to: Anthippi Harou 1
    Wonderful app!
    50:34 to: Peggy George
    I agree Peg! So many terrific features!
    50:52 to: @plnaugle (Paula)
    @Peg V that's what I was thinking too.
    51:15 to: Peggy George
    that's a good suggestion for sharing devices
    52:21 to: Peggy George
    if you have further questions that haven't been answered, please type them now
    52:59 to: Peggy George
    how do the students get that photo from the teacher to upload to Bloomz
    53:59 to: Peggy George
    Do you just have one group for your professional learning or can you have sub groups for different topics?
    54:12 to: Peggy George
    I'm thinking of our Classroom 2.0 group :-)
    54:46 to: Peggy George
    awesome! thanks! so people could choose which of those groups they want to join.
    54:56 to: Peggy George
    do they get notifications when there are new posts to the group?
    55:47 to: Dejan Kreculj
    Hi, here is 17*C and http://www.skylinewebcams.com/it/webcam/srbija/kolubarski-okrug/ub/cathedral-of-christ-the-savior.html
    55:53 to: Peggy George
    Hi Dejan! We are almost finished. The show starts an hour earlier now that we are on daylight saving time.
    56:12 to: @plnaugle (Paula)
    I'm getting a little "pop" sound when someone posts a new comment when I have the app open on my computer.
    56:16 to: Dejan Kreculj
    :(
    56:16 to: Peggy George
    Thank you so much Laura and Horacio!!!! Very excited!!!
    56:17 to: Anthippi Harou 1
    Thank you for the great presentation!
    56:21 to: @DrThomasHo (Indiana) #3
    School account signup?
    56:22 to: Peggy George
    me too Paula
    56:36 to: Peggy George
    but what happens when the app isn't open?
    56:44 to: Peg Volak
    Thank you!
    56:45 to: Peggy George
    do you know when there are new posts?
    57:08 to: Peggy George
    great idea! quiet hours :-)
