Chatcast

 

 This session will not be chatcast. The purpose is to provide hands-on individualized exploration and familiarization. Then again it might. It's not really my decision, is it? ;-)

.....

And so we see, it wasn't my decision. The group continued the chatcsast. Here it is. As you see, I've pasted the homework questions above.

[2:25:22 PM] Durff says: i guess there is no audio of the live thing?

 

[2:25:37 PM] Sharon Peters says: bec all the admins (and many teachers) think is that this is instant messaging - no value to education

 

[2:25:47 PM] Durff says: i usually tell my afterwards

 

[2:26:14 PM] Sharon Peters says: all instant msging programs were blocked at my school

 

[2:26:17 PM] Durff says: true though i use IM widget on class blogs

[2:42:31 PM] Claudia Ceraso says: I think not. Not here, at least

 

[2:42:37 PM] Joseph Miller says: not sure, we stopped video because they are working on their own

 

[2:43:08 PM] Bud Hunt says: ah - makes sense

 

[2:43:31 PM] Durff says: ok

 

[2:44:03 PM] Claudia Ceraso says: Seems there will be more Twitter enabled people after this workshop.

 

[2:44:16 PM] Joseph Miller says: some teachers are exploring http://scratch.mit.edu/

 

[2:44:36 PM] Durff says: that's cool i hear

 

[2:45:24 PM] Sharon Peters says: for global projects - has anyone heard of this environment - free for high schools - http://rafi.ki/

 

[2:45:42 PM] Durff says: no

 

[2:45:59 PM] Sharon Peters says: an informal social networking site - not a learning management system - my friend in Israel, Reuven Werber, recommends it

 

[2:46:30 PM] Durff says: why not just use skype?

 

[2:47:21 PM] Dave Tarwater says: just took a look at rafi.ki, intriguing - I will have to investigate further

 

[2:47:31 PM] Joseph Miller says: http://www.flickr.com/photos/millerjtx/1063780713/

[2:48:20 PM] *** janstearns left this chat

 

 ***

 

[2:48:34 PM] Joseph Miller says: all participants have their own laptops, smartboards, projectors, and computer cameras

 

[2:48:41 PM] Durff says: and us lowly people have to present in conferences that will not pay for internet access

 

[2:48:57 PM] Durff says: life is not fair joe

 

[2:49:02 PM] Joseph Miller says: indeed

 

[2:49:12 PM] Durff says: i need to buy a projecctor

[2:49:36 PM] Durff says: i'm getting a smartboard - well i think i have to share it

 

[2:50:22 PM] Joseph Miller says: @Bud I convinced my district top pony a bunch of $ and received a 300k grant

 

[2:50:31 PM] Durff says: are the participants all using batteries or is there electric and is there free wireless?

 

[2:50:35 PM] Bud Hunt says: One of the ironies of your workshops is that my Canadian friend, through the chatcasts, introduced me to a read/write web iniative happening in my own backyard.

 

[2:50:49 PM] Joseph Miller says: these teachers also have dedicated mobile labs (to share)

 

[2:50:51 PM] Bud Hunt says: do you have any documentation around your global learners project?

 

[2:50:54 PM] Sharon Peters says: every child should have such an awesoem environment  - mind you , does not eliminate the very importatn need for excellent teachers

 

[2:50:57 PM] Durff says: ah the irony of it all

 

[2:51:04 PM] Joseph Miller says: yes, happy to share

 

[2:51:15 PM] Durff says: ahhh - hire me

 

[2:51:18 PM] Joseph Miller says: we have power on the ground and free wireless

[2:52:45 PM] Joseph Miller says: we are in our hs library..so, freee...hmmm

 

[2:53:00 PM] Durff says: i did last year - had three maths

 

[2:53:23 PM] Joseph Miller says: we are looking for hs math

 

[2:53:33 PM] Joseph Miller says: www.acsd14.k12.co.us

 

[2:53:37 PM] Bud Hunt says: We didn't have enough free and reduced lunch folk to qualify for II-D.

 

[2:53:40 PM] Sharon Peters says: just so that I am clear on this - this is a public school system ??

 

[2:53:41 PM] Durff says: this year it looks like computer apps, study skills and (and this is funny) Spanish I

 

[2:53:50 PM] Joseph Miller says: yes

 

[2:53:53 PM] Sharon Peters says: acsd

 

[2:53:55 PM] Joseph Miller says: commerce city, co

 

[2:54:05 PM] Durff says: like i said, life is not fair

 

[2:54:06 PM] Sharon Peters says: wow, very impressive - congrats on the grant

 

[2:54:20 PM] Joseph Miller says: 6500 students, 800 employees, 56% ELL, 82% FRL

 

[2:54:44 PM] Joseph Miller says: I am stepping out for a moment, but will be back in a few

 

[2:54:50 PM] Sharon Peters says: like Durff, I have worked in a fiscally-challenged Christian school - more recently for a very well-endowed independent school and now for the ministry of ed in Quebecd

 

[2:55:07 PM] Sharon Peters says: ELL? FRL??

 

[2:55:10 PM] Durff says: fiscally-challenged - i like that

 

[2:55:49 PM] Durff says: ELL is usually English as a second language

 

[2:55:49 PM] Bud Hunt says: ELL= English language learners

 

[2:55:57 PM] Bud Hunt says: FRL= free and reduced lunch

 

[2:56:00 PM] Durff says: so what is FRL?

 

[2:56:07 PM] Sharon Peters says: does that mean English is first or additional language

 

[2:56:14 PM] Sharon Peters says: we call it mother tongue in QC

 

[2:56:17 PM] Durff says: 2nd

 

[2:56:25 PM] Bud Hunt says: it's a statistic that measures how many students are below a certain home economic level - closest way to measure "poverty"

 

[2:56:35 PM] Sharon Peters says: ahhhh

 

[2:56:38 PM] Durff says: ah...

 

[2:56:38 PM] Bud Hunt says: mother tongue is NOTenglish

 

[2:56:40 PM] Sharon Peters says: okay - get it

 

[2:56:45 PM] Sharon Peters says: okay

 

[2:56:47 PM] Durff says: ok coffee time

 

[2:56:55 PM] Bud Hunt says: those numbers are essential for determining access to certain federal and state monies

 

[2:57:04 PM] Sharon Peters says: I live in a place where English is the minority language (officially)

 

[2:57:17 PM] Sharon Peters says: right

 

[2:57:20 PM] Claudia Ceraso says: ESL = English as a second language EFL= English as a foreign language

 

[2:57:42 PM] Bud Hunt says: ELA = english/language arts OR english language acquisition

 

[2:57:45 PM] Sharon Peters says: I recognize those Claudia! Used to teach ESL students for years

 

[2:58:05 PM] Sharon Peters says: I am the ELA consultant for my province

 

[2:58:14 PM] Sharon Peters says: the "go-to girl" for ELA resources

 

[2:58:22 PM] Sharon Peters says: (should put that on my card)

 

[2:58:31 PM] Claudia Ceraso says: I see. Where is that?

 

[2:58:38 PM] Sharon Peters says: QuÈbec

 

[2:58:47 PM] Sharon Peters says: for the English sector

 

[2:59:18 PM] Claudia Ceraso says: I've only done EFL in Buenos Aires.

 

[2:59:24 PM] Sharon Peters says: the politics here make an education in English difficult, but not impossible

 

[2:59:51 PM] Sharon Peters says: most of the population (Francophones) are only permitted 10% instruction in English

 

[3:00:31 PM] Sharon Peters says: even the Francophones don't like that idea

 

[3:00:32 PM] Claudia Ceraso says: Sadly I must go to a class now. Let's stay in touch! fceblog at gmail

[3:07:23 PM] Jon Fisher says: Ma classe va faire un echange avec une classe en Normandie. Unfortunately my students don't speak French.

 

[3:07:47 PM] Sharon Peters says: dÈsolÈe!

 

[3:08:16 PM] Sharon Peters says: Jon, what age/grade levels are your students?

 

[3:08:37 PM] Sharon Peters says: I have teachers who are looking for global partners for a collaborative exchange

 

[3:08:37 PM] Jon Fisher says: My kids are first grade. So between 5-7.
