01:35 mrsdurff-2 : you didn't pay
01:35 explorer23 : last lady was too quiet
01:35 justinreeve : audio is a little choppy, but no big deal
01:36 justinreeve : that was the point, mrsdurff
01:36 mrsdurff-2 : can you turn audio up?
01:36 justinreeve : thanks for streaming this, openpd
01:36 alanlutz-2 : @durff how you can you be watching both ustreams?

01:42 mrsdurff-2 : of this?

01:42 mrsdurff-2 : twitterholism!

01:43 justinreeve : because I'm here, of course

01:44 mrsdurff-2 : so eobin and darren got to meet this conference?
01:44 mrsdurff-2 : robin
01:47 mrsdurff-2 : i'm terrible at sl
01:47 cobannon-1 : Is audio cutting in and out on anyone else?
01:47 mrsdurff-2 : yes
01:47 misst2 : Yes
01:47 mrsdurff-2 : wifi courtesy of iste
01:47 cobannon-1 : @mrsdurff Me too, SL that is. Not good at all. Need lessons.
01:48 mrsdurff-2 : i just persist
01:48 alanlutz-2 : that's what I just said, in the other ustream
01:48 misst2 : I go to SL and never know what to do
01:48 alanlutz-2 : I'm there now waiting for keynote to begin. sleepign in a chair
01:48 openpd-1 : sorry about cutting ou folks -- it's the wifi in the convention center
01:48 mrsdurff-2 : LOL
01:49 alanlutz-2 : I'llhave my avatar catch keynote while I have lunch with son
01:49 mrsdurff-2 : PA!
01:51 mrscaldwell0 : I am still struggling with Second Life's value in K12 ed
01:51 justinreeve : I'm not entirely convinced either, mrscaldwell
01:51 justinreeve : one day I'm sure I will be though.
01:51 alanlutz-2 : MrsC you should be watching Storyworlds preso now.
01:52 mrscaldwell0 : I have it paused
01:52 alanlutz-2 : we are
01:52 justinreeve : but I'm not prepared to try to convince my tech department to unblock it
01:52 alanlutz-2 : O, me too.
01:52 mrsdurff-2 : i don't think the way sl is, that is has application. But TeenSL and OpenSim do
01:52 alanlutz-2 : actually I can listen to both at same time.
01:52 mrsdurff-2 : mutlitasker
01:52 cfoote : but I think this is good point..colleges are using it.
01:53 alanlutz-2 : haha right. I'm trying
01:53 mrsdurff-2 : no better, geek
01:53 justinreeve : oh, I forgot about TeenSL
01:53 mrscaldwell0 : That is creepy alanlutz... two ears, two audios
01:53 alanlutz-2 : all in the headphones! special set
01:53 mrscaldwell0 : It's special alright
01:53 justinreeve : does it annoy anyone that colleges seem to be the first ones to deploy cool educational technology? I'd like to see K12 take over the innovation.
01:53 justinreeve : it's like a silent race
01:53 mrsdurff-2 : @mrscaldwell - what is REALLY creepy that justi, alan, and I are all in both ustreams
01:54 cfoote : @justinreeve I think k-12 often is innovating
01:54 mrscaldwell0 : hahaha
01:54 cfoote : ahead of colleges
01:54 justinreeve : yeah, but colleges have more money
01:54 mrsdurff-2 : @justin i think you are correct
01:54 cfoote : it's so virtal that her favorite tools have already changed
01:54 cfoote : viral
01:54 cfoote : since she did the slides.
01:54 justinreeve : I think in terms of breadth, K12 dominates
01:54 mrscaldwell0 : Love that Alabama just had major budget issues because higher ed said they were not getting enough money
01:54 misst2 : where is Storyworls stream?
01:55 mrsdurff-2 : when i said so last year i was told i was wrong
01:55 justinreeve : but in just flat-out deployment of ed tech, colleges came first. They had online classes before K12 did. They had full-featured student portals before K12.
01:55 justinreeve : etc.
01:55 alanlutz-2 : http://www.ustream.tv/channel/ramapo-storyworlds
01:55 misst2 : ty
01:55 mrsdurff-2 : they don't teach minors
01:55 alanlutz-2 : trickle down effect
01:55 mrsdurff-2 : less litigation
01:56 alanlutz-2 : all great tech: Military first, business, then maybe education
01:56 mrsdurff-2 : i think the safety factor is the biggest obstacle
01:56 justinreeve : so true, alan
01:56 mrsdurff : http://openpd.wikispaces.com/
01:57 alanlutz-2 : tech diff?
01:57 mrsdurff : yes
01:57 mrsdurff : i was thrown out of the ustream
01:57 mrsdurff : but i persist
01:57 alanlutz-2 : @durff you lost your #2
01:58 mrsdurff : ah well
01:58 mrsdurff : still in the other
01:58 alanlutz-2 : now you're #1 again
01:58 mjantzi : welcome back durff.--Persevere!
01:58 mrsdurff : :)
01:58 justinreeve : that #1 and #2 is the only thing keeping you from surpassing me on the next backchannel Wordle
01:58 mrsdurff : it is your wordle
01:59 alanlutz-2 : ahh, me too. I bet
01:59 justinreeve : maybe that's the problem
01:59 openpd-1 : sorry about that... set up in here is not the best
01:59 justinreeve : no need to apologize, openpd
01:59 justinreeve : we're just grateful you're doing this for us
01:59 abubnic-1 : Beth's 2nd Life - Literature Alive http://bethssecondlife.blogspot.com/2007/02/literature-alive-and-other-tales.html
01:59 alanlutz-2 : Yes, I feel like I've been at NECC 'and' make new friends
01:59 alanlutz-2 : made
01:59 openpd-1 : openpd = ssandifer
02:00 justinreeve : oh, hi ssandifer!
02:00 openpd-1 : hi!
02:00 mrsdurff : hi stephanie
02:00 mrscaldwell0 : This is my first ustream... so I am quite smitten
02:01 mrsdurff : saw you briefly
02:01 mrscaldwell0 : I may be on my sofa all day
02:01 openpd-1 : Hi durff!
02:01 mrsdurff : welcome mrscaldwell
02:01 openpd-1 : yes -- I goofed trying to chang camera setup...
02:02 mrscaldwell0 : I went to NECC by myself last year and did not really know how to do it in one day (paid myself, so did one day)
02:02 mrsdurff : it's weird seeing all of you that i know and i am not there
02:02 mrsdurff : and i have not met many f2f
02:02 openpd-1 : it's wierd that you're not here
02:02 mrscaldwell0 : Until I can go for the whole shebang, I will do it virtually like thise
02:02 mrsdurff : no $$
02:02 justinreeve : I'm the same way, mrsdurff
02:02 openpd-1 : meeting face-to-face has been interesting -- will blog about it later
02:02 justinreeve : the only way I'd go is if I can get the tech department to pay for me
02:02 mrscaldwell0 : What are they using on the screen there?
02:02 mrsdurff : gotta save up for educon
02:03 justinreeve : I might be able to go to the Innovative Learning Conference this fall
02:03 alanlutz-2 : I was at last two NECC but only since then got active on Twitter and online
02:03 abubnic-1 : http://www.ustream.tv/channel/openpd
02:03 openpd-1 : the screen is showing the chatzy backchannel
02:03 alanlutz-2 : I want to go there too, Justin
02:03 abubnic-1 : But what is the chatzy URL?
02:03 openpd-1 : http://www.chatzy.com/492808953110
02:03 mrscaldwell0 : I am attending Constructing Modern Knowledge... do you know anyone attending that?
02:04 justinreeve : nope.
02:04 justinreeve : Looks like you're stuck streaming the entire thing :)
02:04 alanlutz-2 : my skype: alan.lutz
02:04 mrscaldwell0 : Hahaha, I have my orders justin
02:04 mrsdurff : now why have a seperate backchannel if there is a backchannel right here?
02:04 justinreeve : yeah, I don't get that either, mrsdurff
02:04 justinreeve : plus with chatzy, dont' you have to actually PAY to get the full chat log?
02:05 alanlutz-2 : yeah, that's cheap!
02:05 mrscaldwell0 : Alan, I just sent you a skype request
02:05 alanlutz-2 : had to save ech screen shot andpaste, right Justing?
02:05 mrsdurff : true
02:05 mrsdurff : now we miss it soooo much
02:05 justinreeve : right. I haven't been bothering to archive the chatzy sessions
02:05 mrsdurff : at educon we formed our own in skype
02:06 mrsdurff : until the chat rooms in ustream were unblocked
02:06 justinreeve : I really need a better system for logging these chats, too. I just save them as plain ol' text files
02:06 mrscaldwell0 : backchannels are like twitter... live microchat
02:06 justinreeve : they could be tagged and hyperlinked, for instance
02:06 mrsdurff : backchannels are synthesizing knowledge
02:06 mrscaldwell0 : I am so behind, I have not even thought to save chats... but would I go back and read them...
02:07 mrsdurff : prior knowledge is connected with what you hear
02:07 alanlutz-2 : MrsC I'll check for it. better than the unsolicted ones I get on skype ;-)
02:07 mrscaldwell0 : I guess it would be good to go back and get links and ideas from the chat
02:07 justinreeve : it's interesting you would say that, mrscaldwell. Chat rooms have been around a LONG time, and that's all this is. But now with Twitter, those who may not have been big on chat rooms before, unintentionally have their own personal chat room they can take anywhere
02:07 alanlutz-2 : SO MUCH to go back and glean from here!
02:07 mrscaldwell0 : true, justin
02:07 justinreeve : yeah, and I still have to watch the Storyworlds archive when it's over
02:07 alanlutz-2 : @justin and NOW they're called back channel, not chat
02:08 justinreeve : yeah, sorry. I meant backchannel.
02:08 justinreeve : How silly of me not to keep up with the memes. :)
02:08 alanlutz-2 : I mean it's a technicality that was pointed out. Like podcast vs audio file online
02:09 alanlutz-2 : Were you there for that one?
02:09 mrscaldwell0 : I am still struggling to get my teachers to know what a blog is... this would be way to much for them
02:09 alanlutz-2 : haha true
02:09 justinreeve : ugh, I know the feeling
02:10 justinreeve : and most of our teachers just use their blog to post assignments.
02:10 justinreeve : they completely miss the collaborative potential of their blog
02:10 mrscaldwell0 : yep
02:10 alanlutz-2 : GTG, lunch with son. I'll leave on to save chat.
02:10 mrscaldwell0 : nice to meet ya alan
02:10 justinreeve : see ya, Alan
02:11 alanlutz-2 : Thks!
02:11 justinreeve : actually, I can save it this time, alan
02:11 alanlutz-2 : Thks Justin.
02:11 justinreeve : I didn't get kicked out or anything
02:11 justinreeve : thank you, though. Have a good time!
02:11 alanlutz-2 : like some peeps
02:11 mrsdurff : good for you justin
02:11 alanlutz-2 : Hope to be on later today somewhere.
02:12 mrsdurff : mmm - that's an idea darren
02:12 mrsdurff : i should try that!
02:14 mrsdurff : it's not intuitive to adults, but is to kids
02:14 mrsdurff : oh my
02:15 mrsdurff : link for that listserve?
02:16 openpd-1 : @mrsdurff I missed it, but I think we can get it on the presentation wiki
02:17 mrsdurff : thanks
02:18 justinreeve : this one? http://www.secondlife.com/education
02:18 mrsdurff : and our show too
02:18 mrsdurff : Skype can be used from a flash drive
02:19 mrscaldwell0 : Skype from a flashdrive... how smart
02:19 mrscaldwell0 : never thought of that
02:19 mrsdurff : a middle school did that
02:19 mrsdurff : so i told the principal that i did NOT teach him how
02:19 mrsdurff : he thought it was funny
02:20 lorips : ahhh, found the right stream!
02:21 mrsdurff : wifi thanks to iste - let them know how much you appreciate it
02:21 openpd-1 : @durff LOL
02:21 openpd-1 : Don't worry -- I think they've heard from enough of this week re: the wonderful wifi :)
02:22 mrscaldwell0 : openpd, what kind of camera and mic are you using to stream this?
02:23 openpd-1 : two cameras -- sony dv and logitech webcam... just using builtin mic
02:23 mrscaldwell0 : really good for the webcam and builtin mic
02:23 mrsdurff : clap for steph
02:23 mrscaldwell0 : steph did a great job
02:24 cfoote : another tool I wanted to share...tpbookclubs.com
02:24 cfoote : place for teachers to do booktalks for pd online
02:24 cfoote : diff book every month. And I learned about this virally--while in the blogger cafe an hour ago!!
02:24 CSouthard : I love ustream - great pd for me (and you too) The audio is working well
02:24 mrscaldwell0 : so chatzy is not blocked if other irc's are?
02:25 openpd-1 : using Camtwist on Mac to create picture-in-picture
02:25 mrscaldwell0 : nice, I just downloaded camtwist
02:25 bvandyck-1 : I love the chatzy back channel Vicki showed it to us at GTA
02:26 openpd-1 : don't know if chatzy is blocked -- I jsut learned about that one this week... you would just have to experiement and see what is blocked and not blocked by your school/district
02:26 CSouthard : Just saved chatzy to my delicious
02:26 mrsdurff : education
02:27 CSouthard : Can someone post the chatzy backchannel link?
02:27 openpd-1 : ttp://www.chatzy.com/492808953110
02:27 mrsdurff : hmmm - no comment justin
02:27 mrsdurff : clap clap clap
02:27 greatnews : Chatzy isn't really a permanent link. It gets recycled if it's like the chatzy we used for CR20 LIVE.
02:27 mrscaldwell0 : good stuff
02:27 lorips : bravo
02:28 cfoote : thanks for coming everyone!
02:28 mrsdurff : bye all
02:28 justinreeve : thank you!
02:28 mjantzi : Gracias
