20:10:37 cheryloakes almost graduate -> -EdTechTalk: Hm, I don't Peggy, I don't know why? Maybe will start doing that
20:10:39 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: This is a world that no one at school is a part of
20:10:59 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I think you tend not to "toot your own horn" but you really should
20:11:05 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: I do mention my shows every once in a while but no one ever shows up
20:11:07 cheryloakes almost graduate -> -EdTechTalk: I agree Lisa, but not that it is good, I would love to have more teachers get involved here.
20:11:17 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Me too, Cheryl
20:11:22 LindaN -> -EdTechTalk: Maybe we need a conversation about how we can take steps to include the the people at our school into our world.
20:11:37 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Didn't we do that a few weeks ago?
20:11:39 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: LOL
20:11:41 cheryloakes almost graduate -> -EdTechTalk: I think that would be great for a conversation.
20:11:52 cheryloakes almost graduate -> -EdTechTalk: then I missed it.
20:11:59 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Yes Linda! that's some of what they are doing on parents as partners and that is so helpful

20:13:21 mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: no
20:13:52 SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: on my portfolio... on everyone? will look in a sec
20:14:09 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Just discovered some really good resources for cyberbullying online today--it's promoting a new book but there are many things to download free on the site click on downloads
20:14:30 cheryloakes almost graduate -> -EdTechTalk: Welcome Ben, glad you are here!
20:14:32 LindaN -> -EdTechTalk: That is amazing!
20:14:38 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: I do find that more new people show up in Conversations.
20:14:42 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: there's a family cell phone contract and a cyberbullying report card
20:15:02 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Great to meet you Ben!
20:15:22 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Oops sorry...was listening but not following the chat so my comment really made no sense, did it?
20:15:31 colleenk -> -EdTechTalk: @LParisi You get a lot of Plurkers.
20:15:56 LindaN -> -EdTechTalk: Welcome Ben! It is so great to hear your voices and ideas!
20:15:58 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Yes, Colleen. But it's nice to bring more people to ETT...they might find other shows too.
20:16:09 Lorna -> -EdTechTalk: @peggy thanks for the resources
20:16:14 cheryloakes almost graduate -> -EdTechTalk: good question SusanE.
20:16:25 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: I had that idea last year.
20:16:33 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I agree Lisa-hopefully our newsletter will also bring people to the site to find other shows
20:16:36 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: I wanted to do a show with my fifth graders
20:17:11 LindaN -> -EdTechTalk: Lisa, I envision my students doing a show also!
20:17:12 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: a student show would be great!
20:17:27 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: I would love to have a sort of advice show...
20:17:50 Lorna -> -EdTechTalk: what grade is ben in?
20:17:50 LindaN -> -EdTechTalk: So maybe that is the show I need to create. Any one game?
20:18:00 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: sophomore
20:18:15 LindaN -> -EdTechTalk: I was thinking an evening show!
20:18:21 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: the scheduling is such a challenge
20:18:25 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Linda I think it would be fabulous!
20:18:40 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Have you seen storychasers?
20:18:55 LindaN -> -EdTechTalk: No...what is storychasers?
20:18:58 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: We could do something like that..each week a different class takes over
20:18:59 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: yes storychasers sounds really great
20:19:23 LindaN -> -EdTechTalk: Yes, I was thinking a group os students/ classes like student2.0
20:19:52 LindaN -> -EdTechTalk: As a small group of students start- others would be hooked
20:19:54 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Maybe Youth Voices is the place to do this?
20:19:55 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Storychasers is Wes Fryer's new idea
20:20:21 sheila -> -EdTechTalk: - another theme coming up is world hunger in late Oct.
20:20:35 cheryloakes almost graduate -> -EdTechTalk: that would be great Shelia
20:20:48 sheila -> -EdTechTalk: Is that right, mrsdurff
20:20:50 sheila -> -EdTechTalk: ?
20:20:59 cheryloakes almost graduate -> -EdTechTalk: I think the hook would be the theme, then it would generate interest.
20:21:00 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Linda...let's talk
20:21:01 mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: yes
20:21:17 cheryloakes almost graduate -> -EdTechTalk: Lisa P, thanks for coming in tonight.
20:21:23 cheryloakes almost graduate -> -EdTechTalk: good luck with the show.
20:21:28 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: So glad to be here, Cheryl
20:21:38 LindaN -> -EdTechTalk: Yes, let's talk Lisa
20:21:49 susanvg -> -EdTechTalk: and that students are articulate and thinkers
20:21:55 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: storychaser background & formative ideas for the project
20:22:17 JL -> -EdTechTalk: Re: studentcasting, I wonder about having one class 'anchor' the stream, perhaps have guests from a few other locations - those that can catch it live, can listen. Those that can't, can catch the recording. Seems like webcast listening is just too passive for most classes.
20:22:50 cheryloakes almost graduate -> -EdTechTalk: good idea Jeff, some kind of collaborative use of webcasting
20:22:55 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: I was thinking, Jeff, about an advice kids could skype in from their classes to ask questions
20:22:57 SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: so true jl!
20:23:05 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: More interactive
20:23:23 susanvg -> -EdTechTalk: Different classes responsible for different aspects
20:23:28 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: like a Dear Abby??? what kind of questions? :-)
20:23:30 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Yes, Susan
20:23:34 SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: hi mike welcome!
20:23:40 SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: hi whitestwave welcome!
20:23:49 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Not sure Peggy...the idea came to me when my kids were getting ready for middle school
20:23:54 cheryloakes almost graduate -> -EdTechTalk: welcome to our graduation cast show!
20:23:56 JL -> -EdTechTalk: might also be fun (and/or insane) to forget about the streaming and just have multiple group conversations happening at the same time.
20:23:57 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: that's a great example Alice
20:24:06 LindaN -> -EdTechTalk: I also think that global issues would be a great idea for students to discuss and also engage teachers/parents
20:24:06 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: I thought I would love for them to ask about middle school from middle schoolers
20:24:15 SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: lol jeff
20:24:33 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: global issues would be really interesting
20:24:36 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Yes, Linda. Even book talks
20:24:47 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Or election conversations
20:25:19 colleenk -> -EdTechTalk: Have to run. Maybe I'll be in a future gradcast :) Good luck to the graduates though you've all been doing a great job! See ya.
20:25:28 SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: hi dave c welcome!
20:25:30 cheryloakes almost graduate -> -EdTechTalk: thanks for coming colleenk
20:25:37 cheryloakes almost graduate -> -EdTechTalk: we will be at your graduation
20:25:38 LindaN -> -EdTechTalk: Oh yes election issues- imagine the conversation with students, teachers, and adults that would occus
20:25:39 alicebarr -> -EdTechTalk: See ya Colleen
20:25:40 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: bye colleen! looking forward to your graduation too!
20:25:51 DaveC -> -EdTechTalk: hello all, I thought it was at 9:00 :-(
20:25:53 susanvg -> -EdTechTalk: develop relationships first and then go into depth via synchronous
20:26:13 Lorna -> -EdTechTalk: Had a power outage - sorry dropped the call
20:26:14 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @susanvg that is great advice-makes a lot of sense
20:26:15 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: So let's plan it and get it going this year.
20:26:33 cheryloakes almost graduate -> -EdTechTalk: Lorna, is it a storm? or just power out
20:26:41 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: love that idea Ben
20:26:46 Lorna -> -EdTechTalk: no power went out for a few min
20:27:07 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Yay Linda!
20:27:12 SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: lorna trying to call you back
20:27:33 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: TAke it from me...there are many tech glitches
20:27:45 mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: 1st round - how many times will she take it?
20:27:47 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: I think I've dealt with them all
20:27:49 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I love the fact that we can keep coming back to webcast academy to continue learning--don't have to complete in one session.
20:27:52 cheryloakes almost graduate -> -EdTechTalk: LisaaP tech challenges!
20:28:11 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Oh yes..cheryl ...challenges
20:28:25 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Although they really feel like disasters when you are in them
20:28:43 susanvg -> -EdTechTalk: @PeggyG - some of us plan on many returns :/
20:28:47 mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: it isn't the tech that challenges but the people
20:29:19 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I've decided I love the "ish" approach--like animation-ish; doesn't have to be perfect. I think of these as webcast-ish as I'm learning.
20:29:56 alicebarr -> -EdTechTalk: Hi Scott Welcome!
20:29:59 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Yes, Peggy...newsletterish
20:30:07 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: yes :-)
20:30:20 Scott Shelhart (pre-service teacher) -> -EdTechTalk: Hi all
20:30:45 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: I'm loving these segues
20:30:47 mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: no tears now
20:30:49 PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: it relieves a lot of the pressure for us Type A's to know we don't have to be perfect!
20:30:55 lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Did I even come close to spelling that right?
20:31:05 mrsdurff -> -EdTechTalk: yes
20:31:06 cheryloakes almost graduate -> -EdTechTalk: we all understood Lparis
20:31:11 SusanEttenheim -> -EdTechTalk: lol lisa... and soooooo tired!
