The K12 online 2006 conference was absolutely awesome


from Kimberly Mattingly to All Participants :
awesome!

great motivators for kids


from Aaron Smith to All Participants :
On the Cluster map New Zealand was totally obscured by the red dots. :)
from Catharine de Wet to All Participants :

from Aaron Smith to All Participants :
Appropriate Flickr photo
from Jenny Vreeland to All Participants :
Tracy could we do this with our current technology within the classroom?


from Diana Laufenberg to All Participants :
hi all... sorry so late...


from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
Hi Diana!
from Kathryn Staton to All Participants :
Hi Diana


from Jenny Vreeland to All Participants :
I wanna learn!!!!


from Aaron Smith to All Participants :
Art teachers love Bloom's Taxonomy ... heh.
from Marie Coleman to All Participants :
Much our traditional structure in education makes it too easy to focus on the bottom part of the pyramid


from Aaron Smith to All Participants :
(You can't see it, but I'm nodding in agreement with you, Darren)
from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
Agree! I wish most educators would start thinking like this! Too much focus on NCLB.
from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
Not on thinking and teaching how to think creatively!
from Kimberly Mattingly to All Participants :
Looks like International Bacculaureate Program


from Aaron Smith to All Participants :
Tracy, that's why we need more art teachers! :D
from Kimberly Mattingly to All Participants :
www.ibo.org


from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
We have got to get others to start thinking more globally!
from Marie Coleman to All Participants :
It is a big stretch for a lot of folks


from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
One step at a time!
from Jenny Vreeland to All Participants :
There's the issue of loosing time.


from Marie Coleman to All Participants :
even if baby steps! :)


from cathy masse to All Participants :
Inch by inch a cinch / yard by yard is hard


from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
Ahh...losing time or thinking outside the box?
from Diana Laufenberg to All Participants :
what if there is no box?


from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
No box might be nice depending on how you look at it!
from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
Agree Tracy!
from Jenny Vreeland to All Participants :
It's what many teachers are afraid of.


from cathy masse to All Participants :
There is often not enough technology available for all students and staff


from Aaron Smith to All Participants :
Some people, finding that they are outside the box, then build a new one for themselves.
from Diana Laufenberg to All Participants :
hence the DEN?


from Marie Coleman to All Participants :
we often do set up limitations on self!


from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
Ohh...deep thinking Aaron. Then I guess we step outside that box again!
from Aaron Smith to All Participants :
Oh no, a brain surgeon lost his stamp collection!
from Darren Kuropatwa to All Participants :
Just catching up on comments ... thanks Aaron. ;-)
from Aron Sterling to All Participants :
All technology is not computers... all kids need technology.


from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
I don't think it is always about tech...but how we teach our kids to think
from Diana Laufenberg to All Participants :
I have chosen to focus on what I have rather than what I don't, with regard to tech in the classroom... use what you have to have the biggest impact


from Marie Coleman to All Participants :
agreed, Diana!


from Aron Sterling to All Participants :
Why not focus on teaching?


from Darren Kuropatwa to All Participants :
(nod to Diana)
from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
Kudos to Diana!
from Aaron Smith to All Participants :
Teryl, the box is a comfort zone. I wouldn't destroy it if they need it, but I would install lots of windows and a really big door.
from Diana Laufenberg to All Participants :
nice, Aaron


from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
I think you are right...I just think we always need to be thinking of how to do things better for the kids
from Karen Janowski to All Participants :
Terry, yes, it's always about the kids


from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
Moving between boxes is good way to think of it
from Aron Sterling to All Participants :
Its funny most of you will challenge the box, but not tme and place.


from Jenny Vreeland to All Participants :
if we could truely focus on student creation instead of the lower end fo the taxonomy then, we would be forcusing on learning and thinkding


from Aaron Smith to All Participants :
Teryl - agreed. But sometimes boxes are a good thing. (Like when you first teach students about blogging. They need supervision.)
from Marie Coleman to All Participants :
I like what Shanghai did last year getting teachers together to go thru k12 online - think they had opportunity for college credit


from David Jakes to All Participants :
Darren: we're backchanneling this on Skype


from Darren Kuropatwa to All Participants :
Excellent!!!
from Jenny Vreeland to All Participants :
or spelling.lol


from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
Aaron...definitely! Boxes for some are not boxes for others. Just continued thinking on how to do it better and different if needed.
from Darren Kuropatwa to All Participants :
Save and publish that my man!
from Aaron Smith to All Participants :
I really hope this chat log gets saved.
from Darren Kuropatwa to All Participants :
I'm going to try. ;-)
from David Jakes to All Participants :
the chat log should be published as a blog post = chatcast


from Diana Laufenberg to All Participants :
aaron.. .I think the box represents a lack of flexibility.. hence the resistance to be inside of it...


from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
Ditto to Aaron's last comment.
from Karen Janowski to All Participants :
David, how do I get in on that?


from Darren Kuropatwa to All Participants :
Let's post it on a wiki!
from Steve Dembo to All Participants :
Aaron, I'll save the chat(s)


from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
One of the best conversations I'
from Diana Laufenberg to All Participants :
I think maybe we have somewhat differing definitions


from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
I've had on a webinar
from Aaron Smith to All Participants :
I like Darren's idea of a wiki
from Aaron Smith to All Participants :
Messes can be fun. (Again, I'm an art teacher)
from David Jakes to All Participants :
yes


from David Jakes to All Participants :
well, maybe


from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
Ohh...teach me how to integrate more of that (art) into my curriculum! I am not good at that!
from Aron Sterling to All Participants :
Wouldn't the DEN blog be a good place, too?


from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
I'm on skype and yahoo instant messenger
from Steve Dembo to All Participants :
Absolutely.


from Aaron Smith to All Participants :
Teryl - can do. Integrating art into the other subjects is part of my job description
from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
Can reach me at the TN LC e-mail, too.
from Jenny Vreeland to All Participants :
skype?


from Vinnie Vrotny to All Participants :
Who is running skype conference? Can they add me?


from Jenny Vreeland to All Participants :

The del.icio.us bullet point text looked clipped :/

from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
Brett...just added you to my contact list on skype
from Brett Harvey to All Participants :
Chat (menu) > Start group chat?


from Aaron Smith to All Participants :
I'm "theartguy" just about anywhere (twitter, skype, jaiku, etc...)
from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
brett..added you to our chat
from Marie Coleman to All Participants :
It is important to invite others to join us in learning


from Jenny Vreeland to All Participants :
Take My hand. Please!!!


from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
Brett...did you get it?
from Diana Laufenberg to All Participants :
I had a great moment with Wes Fryer and Skype this week and it was so cool with the students...


from Brett Harvey to All Participants :
I see a window where I can chat with just you (Teryl) but not sure where the group is .


from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
Martha Thornburg has set up a great math collaborative that my class is particpating in. Three countries
from Diana Laufenberg to All Participants :
Teryl and I were making a new group


from David Jakes to All Participants :
@Darren. The bloggers cafe at NECC should have this focus-take my hand


from Kathryn Staton to All Participants :
Teryl can I join the chat?


from Jenny Vreeland to All Participants :
How do I find out more about that Teryl.? What grade, topic, etc?


from Marie Coleman to All Participants :
Like the opportunity for developing new relationships beyond the one session


from Diana Laufenberg to All Participants :
are you kstaton on skype?


from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
Jenny...I will send you the link to the moodle...
from Kathryn Staton to All Participants :
kathryn.staton


from Marie Coleman to All Participants :
I'm twittering instead of skype-chat, as I'm on different account!


from Aaron Smith to All Participants :
.oO(Wondering if this chat would work on an iPhone)
from Diana Laufenberg to All Participants :
I'm sure it would...


from Kevin Dorsey to All Participants :
How many of us have an iPhone?
from Lori Abrahams to All Participants :
I shared Marthas moodle with all my teachers and non one will try
from Lori Abrahams to All Participants :
so sad
from David Jakes to All Participants :
we got that Darren


from Jenny Vreeland to All Participants :
what's a moodle?


from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
Jenny...here is the link http://www.t56linc.com/moodle/ e-mail her to get additional info.
from Aaron Smith to All Participants :
Moodle = Blackboard - $$$
from Jenny Vreeland to All Participants :
ok


from cathy masse to All Participants :
Moodle is FREE


from David Jakes to All Participants :
dont forget about TCO when dealing with Moodle


from David Jakes to All Participants :
TCO= total cost of ownership


from David Jakes to All Participants :
Moodle isn't free


from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
Jenny---did you get the link?
from David Jakes to All Participants :
support, etc


from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
Martha is hosting the moodle via a grant she got.
from Aaron Smith to All Participants :
I've used both, and Moodle is better. The money they save from licensing fees can be but into an in-house support staff.
from Aaron Smith to All Participants :
put, bot but. argh, typos
from Aaron Smith to All Participants :
*glares angrily at fingers*
from David Jakes to All Participants :
I don't really care what the tool is, just get a tool in the hands of kids and teachers, whether thats Bb or Moodle


from Aron Sterling to All Participants :
Yep, David...


from Aaron Smith to All Participants :
Agreed
from Aron Sterling to All Participants :
Cab it deliver what we need instructionally?


from Aron Sterling to All Participants :
can


from David Jakes to All Participants :
its not about the tool, its about capacity, its about providing an environment for this type of learning


from Aron Sterling to All Participants :
That should be the question


from Aron Sterling to All Participants :
My problem is that we need better consolidation... we all cannot be in all these place.


from Aron Sterling to All Participants :
It is hard to pick and choose.


from Karen Seddon to All Participants :
Sorry I'm late. I was "twittered" in.


from Aaron Smith to All Participants :
It's not ABOUT the tool, but picking the wrong tool for the job or using the right tool in the wrong way can cause some hangups
from Jenny Vreeland to All Participants :
I'd use what ever format I was most familiar, until I can upgrade my skills,.


from Jenny Vreeland to All Participants :
Don't know moodle, but I can do Blackboard


from Darren Kuropatwa to All Participants :
http://k12online07.wikispaces.com/Discovery+Educators+Network+Webinar
from Diana Laufenberg to All Participants :
here is a classroom collaboration that is all set up and ready to go if you are interested in getting your classes involved... http://www.virtualclassroom.org/


from Aaron Smith to All Participants :
Hm, I need to start playing more with Google Docs.
from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
Jenny--dont' need moodle. It is just our point of contact and conversation place
from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
Are we going to post the chat somewhere?
from Aron Sterling to All Participants :
Last year there were opportunities to "host"... how does that work this year?


from David Jakes to All Participants :
you can


from Aaron Smith to All Participants :
I tried listening to podcasts of all the presentations from the first year - overload
from Teryl Magee to All Participants :
Please send the link!
from cathy masse to All Participants :

from John Pederson to All Participants :
