[Jul 19 2013, 1:36 PM] chadsansing: Paul, are you going on-air with us? I think we’ve been thinking yes-ish, but I’m not sure –
[Jul 19 2013, 1:36 PM] chadsansing: We would love to have you πŸ™‚
[Jul 19 2013, 1:36 PM] edinnovator: I wasn’t planning on it. Still in my pjs. πŸ™‚
[Jul 19 2013, 1:37 PM] edinnovator: Let me know though – if you need me, I’m at your service, as always.
[Jul 19 2013, 1:37 PM] chadsansing: At 6:37 in the morning? The West Coast really is more relaxed.
[Jul 19 2013, 1:37 PM] chadsansing: No worries –
[Jul 19 2013, 1:38 PM] edinnovator: haha. trying to troubleshoot a google presentation embed issue for anna. and i haven’t had coffee yet. what’s the world coming to.
[Jul 19 2013, 1:39 PM] chadsansing: Ach. Ready to spin up? If I launch the hangout, it goes live, but not live here until you embed, right?
[Jul 19 2013, 1:43 PM] edinnovator: yup
[Jul 19 2013, 1:43 PM] chadsansing: Okay. Here goes.
[Jul 19 2013, 1:43 PM] edinnovator: also, it won’t actually go live
[Jul 19 2013, 1:43 PM] edinnovator: it will simply be you and whomever you’ve invited in
[Jul 19 2013, 1:44 PM] edinnovator: to make it go live, you need to press a start buttong
[Jul 19 2013, 1:44 PM] edinnovator: but don’t do that until the appropriate time
[Jul 19 2013, 1:44 PM] edinnovator: in other words, start the hangout, send me the embed code, then make it go live at 10 a.m.
[Jul 19 2013, 1:48 PM] chadsansing: Paul, I sent you the embed on Twitter –
[Jul 19 2013, 1:48 PM] edinnovator: cool, dude
[Jul 19 2013, 1:49 PM] edinnovator: All right, we’re good to go, people!
[Jul 19 2013, 1:50 PM] edinnovator: If you’re not seeing a youtube window to the left of this chatroll, please refresh the page.
[Jul 19 2013, 1:52 PM] edinnovator: Also, remember, you can expand out the chatroll window by clicking the little square in the lower right corner below this chatroll window.
[Jul 19 2013, 1:56 PM] Anna: I did not know this.
[Jul 19 2013, 1:56 PM] Anna: Chad or Melissa, do you have a packed Hangout? Do you want/need others in there live?
[Jul 19 2013, 1:57 PM] chadsansing: We could fit 3-4 more.
[Jul 19 2013, 1:57 PM] Anna: Can you post the link here? I will blast it out when we start.
[Jul 19 2013, 1:57 PM] edinnovator: Let me know if you’d like me to join, too, Chad. I’m happy to if you need people.
[Jul 19 2013, 1:58 PM] Anna: not the embed code, but just the link to the Hangout at the top.
[Jul 19 2013, 1:58 PM] chadsansing: https://plus.google.com/hangouts/_/a359c88e3a303e33fdeb7acb29c5595625e4a070?authuser=0&hl=en
[Jul 19 2013, 1:58 PM] Anna: Thanks! See you soon!
[Jul 19 2013, 1:58 PM] chadsansing: Join in if you’d like – it would be great – good crew here already, too.
[Jul 19 2013, 1:58 PM] chadsansing: We’ll start in just a moment or two – welcome, All!
[Jul 19 2013, 1:59 PM] chadsansing: I’ll be posting a question or two here, as well, as the hangout happens. Please wave at me in crazy ways to get questions and comments into the hangout. Or DM.
[Jul 19 2013, 1:59 PM] Anna: Will do!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:02 PM] bakersastros: good morning everyone!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:02 PM] chadsansing: Good-morning!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:02 PM] Anna: Hi Allie!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:02 PM] tellio: hi alliep
[Jul 19 2013, 2:02 PM] Chris Lawrence: hi all
[Jul 19 2013, 2:03 PM] Anna: You can join live, if you want: https://plus.google.com/hangouts/_/a359c88e3a303e33fdeb7acb29c5595625e4a070?authuser=0&hl=en
[Jul 19 2013, 2:03 PM] edinnovator: hi everyone
[Jul 19 2013, 2:03 PM] tellio: Heart network, cool.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:03 PM] edinnovator: Paul Oh here – if any of you want to join, let me know. happy to leave the hangout.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:03 PM] tellio: Bigger arena, connecting, School Library Journal
[Jul 19 2013, 2:05 PM] chadsansing: Q1: Chatroll friends, where has #clmooc taken you? What bridges have you made this summer?
[Jul 19 2013, 2:07 PM] technolibrary: Was trying to get into hangout but can’t seem to! πŸ™
[Jul 19 2013, 2:08 PM] tellio: I will be happy to drop out for someone else.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:08 PM] edinnovator: Who is “guest”?
[Jul 19 2013, 2:08 PM] edinnovator: And, Terry, you should stay on and I’ll drop out. I need to soon to get to work
[Jul 19 2013, 2:08 PM] technolibrary: No, that’s ok. I can just listen.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:08 PM] grammasheri: I’ve learned to blog more/ share in blogs / after connecting with others to share what is possible.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:08 PM] Anna: I love that there’s an official lurker in the Hangout!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:08 PM] tellio: I would love for technolibrary to get in here
[Jul 19 2013, 2:09 PM] chadsansing: @tellio, working on it πŸ™‚
[Jul 19 2013, 2:09 PM] edinnovator: and when i say “get to work,” i mean travel to the NWP office πŸ™‚
[Jul 19 2013, 2:09 PM] Anna: I am going to drop off as well…I just wanted to say hi to these folks I have met only in tweets!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:10 PM] grammasheri: I hope this becomes not just an “outside school” curriculum.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:10 PM] kimxtom: I meant to keep lurking, but then got the google invite from Chad – couldn’t ignore that
[Jul 19 2013, 2:11 PM] bakersastros: A1: I’ve had the opportunity to learn about some wonderful new tools in the #clmooc
[Jul 19 2013, 2:11 PM] chadsansing: @Sheri – we won’t let it!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:11 PM] grammasheri: The welcoming facilitators have drawn in many lurkers!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:11 PM] technolibrary: is your feed stuck?
[Jul 19 2013, 2:11 PM] bakersastros: @paul, it is early out here πŸ™‚
[Jul 19 2013, 2:11 PM] Kevin Hodgson: A1. What has become clear is how many fellow-minded teachers and educators are out there. Less feeling of isolation.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:12 PM] grammasheri: @paul and @bakersastros Yes. early. and worth it!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:12 PM] edinnovator: allie – it certainly is … haven’t had my coffee yet!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:12 PM] chadsansing: Yes, @Kevin – such a heartening summer!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:13 PM] edinnovator: hi all
[Jul 19 2013, 2:13 PM] chadsansing: Please jump in! https://plus.google.com/hangouts/_/a359c88e3a303e33fdeb7acb29c5595625e4a070?authuser=0&hl=en
[Jul 19 2013, 2:13 PM] Kevin Hodgson: No one brought the virtual coffee?
[Jul 19 2013, 2:13 PM] edinnovator: there should be another space – i just dropped out
[Jul 19 2013, 2:13 PM] bakersastros: @kevin, yes. I am the only teacher in a very small school, so I’m happy to have connected with so many wonderful people…and I’ll continue to interact with everyone!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:13 PM] edinnovator: will view instead and add snarky comments via chatroll πŸ™‚
[Jul 19 2013, 2:13 PM] grammasheri: @Kevin colarapp is cool!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:13 PM] Kevin Hodgson: @allie I think one of the steps we will be talking about soon is how to keep us all connected
[Jul 19 2013, 2:14 PM] Kevin Hodgson: Yeah — that app was neat. I want it to be built so that I can create anything I want and it will leap to life.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:14 PM] bakersastros: “taking connected learning principles and values into the classroom” – that’s what its all about, Terry!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:15 PM] tellio: Amen, @bakerastros
[Jul 19 2013, 2:15 PM] grammasheri: @kevin: i wonder what makes the black outline special if it is just printed out? Seems that could be hacked… ????
[Jul 19 2013, 2:15 PM] Kevin Hodgson: @Sherri Ohhhh. Hmmmm. Great idea. Hacking the color app.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:16 PM] Kevin Hodgson: Robotics, legos and duct tape … sounds like a place I wanna be
[Jul 19 2013, 2:17 PM] chadsansing: More from #devdev: https://twitter.com/search?q=%23devdev&src=typd
[Jul 19 2013, 2:18 PM] Kevin Hodgson: Good to see Kim Wilkins. Connecting faces to usernames in these chats. These are real people!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:18 PM] chadsansing: Q2, for those in the questioning & answering mood: what connections from #clmooc do you want to take into the new school year or back into your life, learning spaces?
[Jul 19 2013, 2:19 PM] edinnovator: btw, here’s the Educator Innovator space: s21337.p425.sites.pressdns.com/educatorinnovator
[Jul 19 2013, 2:19 PM] edinnovator: http://blog.nwp.org/educatorinnovator
[Jul 19 2013, 2:19 PM] grammasheri: @chad so glad to meet fellow middle school teachers – esp in Language Arts to connect with in classrooms
[Jul 19 2013, 2:19 PM] Kevin Hodgson: A2. I wondering (but have not yet written about) is whether I need to do more to extend my definition of “making” or move more making activities into my classroom. Prob both, but I’m weighing those issues right now.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:20 PM] kimxtom: Hi Kevin – where are you?
[Jul 19 2013, 2:20 PM] Chris Lawrence: connectivist moocs FTW
[Jul 19 2013, 2:20 PM] Kevin Hodgson: I’m right here.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:20 PM] edinnovator: And here’s a link to Mozilla’s Maker Party: https://webmaker.org/party
[Jul 19 2013, 2:20 PM] Kevin Hodgson: Just kidding — Western Massachusetts
[Jul 19 2013, 2:20 PM] grammasheri: @kevin yes: how much can we do? how do we tie it in with the objectives/goals required?
[Jul 19 2013, 2:21 PM] bakersastros: A2 the big ideas of connected learning: Equitable, social, and participatory. Those ideas can be threads throughout a curriculum. And making, making, making. And then some more making.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:21 PM] grammasheri: Plan on adding to and creating Lang Arts Thimbles.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:21 PM] Kevin Hodgson: @sheri There are plenty of ways, but it does depend on our school system and administrators. We need a Makers Faire for Superintendents and Principals. (and not make a curriculum map)
[Jul 19 2013, 2:22 PM] edinnovator: And here’s a link to HIVE NYC: http://explorecreateshare.org/
[Jul 19 2013, 2:22 PM] Kevin Hodgson: I like how Michelle is talking about how to bridge connections across communities and networks and spaces. Allies.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:22 PM] grammasheri: @Kevin Agree!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:22 PM] Kevin Hodgson: Give a superintendent some duct tape ….
[Jul 19 2013, 2:22 PM] edinnovator: Love HIVE. The NYC Writing Project is a recent new-member of HIVE NYC.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:22 PM] Anna: @Kevin: I am actually thinking the opposite. Ha. I want to stop romanticizing “making.” If “making” is everything, it is no longer special. Also, “traditional” literacies are not inherently negative. Just thinking.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:22 PM] Kevin Hodgson: @Anna Can you explain more. Interested …
[Jul 19 2013, 2:23 PM] Anna: Can someone say more about HIVE? I have been hearing buzz with HIVE in it, but I don’t know what that is.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:23 PM] chadsansing: Bring out the tacit learning; make it “plain” and “ordinary” to work with purpose & find delight in it!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:24 PM] grammasheri: @chad and @anna Yes — blend the authenticity behind traditional learning / curriculum with the process / product of “making.”
[Jul 19 2013, 2:24 PM] edinnovator: As I think of it, Anna, HIVE is a learning network that brings together all kinds of educational institutions to provide a range of opportunities for youth.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:25 PM] bakersastros: @Anna, I think its important to think about the process of making rather than the product – then we celebrate the journey and the experience of it.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:25 PM] Kevin Hodgson: I wish we had more vocational educators in our MOOC this summer. We’d benefit more from their perspectives about hands-on learning. Or are there folks that I have not noticed?
[Jul 19 2013, 2:25 PM] chadsansing: Check out http://www.hivenyc.org/ πŸ™‚
[Jul 19 2013, 2:25 PM] Anna: @Sheri You are making me think that perhaps just like the digital helped us see writing as multimodal, the maker movement can help us see literacies as “making.”
[Jul 19 2013, 2:26 PM] technolibrary: Context localizers.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:26 PM] beyondtech1: Love the gardener metaphor-balances free-for-all with planting seeds in a path
[Jul 19 2013, 2:27 PM] chadsansing: @Anna & @Shere – I’ve seen some of this in higher ed digital humanities work, too – a move back from the digital to hybrid physical/spatial and digital forms of analysis and production.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:27 PM] technolibrary: finding where you have something in common.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:27 PM] Anna: @Allie Yes, I have been a little uncomfortable with our Make focus (aka product focus) by way of posting Makes in our #clmooc. It isn’t intentional, but I don’t think it ever necessarily is. I’d love to see us find ways to make processes visible and interesting…equal to products.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:27 PM] Kevin Hodgson: How does Hive look like inside schools, during the school day? Is it beyond after-school connections? (or do I misunderstand the connections) Chris is talking about school as one node, I hear.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:27 PM] grammasheri: @Anna: I think you just brought us back to John Dewey — education is the process of living. πŸ™‚
[Jul 19 2013, 2:27 PM] tellio: Laura’s reflective post on Mozilla mooc was outstanding.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:28 PM] Kevin Hodgson: @anna I love “behind the scenes” views of what folks are doing and how they have done it. That “making” visible the process is key, for me.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:28 PM] Chris Lawrence: @anna the Hive NYC blog is a good place to get a sense: explorecreateshare.org and as a NYCer I’d be happy to add you to our comms channels (send me an email at clawrence at mozillafoundation dot org)
[Jul 19 2013, 2:28 PM] Anna: Did something in the Hangout just pop/snap or did my computer just blow up?
[Jul 19 2013, 2:28 PM] chadsansing: Laura’s post: http://www.zythepsary.com/techie/teachtheweb-so-you-want-to-run-a-cmooc/
[Jul 19 2013, 2:28 PM] technolibrary: work open–see where it goes.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:28 PM] Chris Lawrence: also @anna NY Writing Project is a Hive NYC member!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:28 PM] Kevin Hodgson: @anna it’s yer ‘puter. Things seem fine from where I am
[Jul 19 2013, 2:29 PM] grammasheri: @tello do you have the link to laura’s post?
[Jul 19 2013, 2:29 PM] kimxtom: @Anna however, posting “Makes” can be helpful for those of us who want to use as a learning tool to view, hack & remix
[Jul 19 2013, 2:29 PM] edinnovator: @Anna @Allie I agree that process is important. But I would also argue that we need to focus first on actual interest-driven making because that seems so absent in educational settings
[Jul 19 2013, 2:29 PM] tellio: chad popped it in above
[Jul 19 2013, 2:29 PM] tellio: http://www.zythepsary.com/techie/teachtheweb-so-you-want-to-run-a-cmooc/
[Jul 19 2013, 2:29 PM] grammasheri: @tello @chad thanks for the link
[Jul 19 2013, 2:30 PM] tellio: It’s not that hard? Reminds me of Red Smith saying writing was easy, just sit in front of typewriter and open a vein.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:30 PM] Anna: Yes, @Kevin, I am happy that that happened, but I think it was serendipitous, because that is an interest to a lot of clmooc-ers. I’d love to come up ways to provide platforms for processes to be part of the conversation.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:30 PM] Kevin Hodgson: “find connections where there are no connections” or more likely, making visible connections where they were not visible before.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:30 PM] chadsansing: Terry – join in again and stir the pot!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:31 PM] Anna: @Kim Are you talking about the Make Bank or the end-product Makes? I agree with you about the Make Bank!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:31 PM] chadsansing: Q3: how hard or easy is it to connect and sustain maker work and partnerships where you are?
[Jul 19 2013, 2:31 PM] bakersastros: @Anna @Kevin highlighting the process is an important piece of students learning about their own making/thinking/learning process – learning about themselves as learners.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:31 PM] grammasheri: @anna @kim product is important, yet at the beginning of #clmooc, we were asked to explain our process; that may be something to focus on — not as the focus — but brought out more. The reflection and connection pieces are dynamic!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:32 PM] Kevin Hodgson: A3. I’m lucky in that a colleague — Gail Poulin (@poulingail) — teaches in my school. We need to find a way to partner her kindergarten kids with my sixth graders this year.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:32 PM] bakersastros: Yes, @Sheri, even as we posted makes, we had conversations about our thoughts and the process in the comments.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:33 PM] Kevin Hodgson: Love that idea of connecting with a Maker Group — the community comes to the school.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:33 PM] Anna: @Kevin Gail’s great! You’re a lucky guy. P.S. I haven’t figured out what blew near my computer yet…at least there is no burning smell.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:33 PM] Chris Lawrence: We are working with Maker Ed Maker Corp interns who are doing “Reverse Field Trips” in NYC DOE’s Summer Quest program
[Jul 19 2013, 2:33 PM] Kevin Hodgson: @Anna time to make a new hard drive?
[Jul 19 2013, 2:34 PM] Anna: Can we get a link to HIVE and TechGirl?
[Jul 19 2013, 2:34 PM] edinnovator: Check out Maker Ed here: http://makered.org/
[Jul 19 2013, 2:34 PM] tellio: Need to read David Gauntlett’s Making is Connecting for some of the history of craft and maker movement
[Jul 19 2013, 2:34 PM] technolibrary: love hearing about tech girl concept.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:34 PM] edinnovator: Here’s one link to HIVE: http://explorecreateshare.org/
[Jul 19 2013, 2:34 PM] Chris Lawrence: @anna I put Hive resources in the chat earlier
[Jul 19 2013, 2:34 PM] Anna: Great, thanks Chris.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:35 PM] Kevin Hodgson: Gotta go. Rock the Make Hangout!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:35 PM] edinnovator: Bye, Kevin!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:35 PM] tellio: cya doxtrax
[Jul 19 2013, 2:35 PM] grammasheri: A3: I am the only maker/geek on campus. Small school.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:36 PM] edinnovator: Where are you located, Sheri?
[Jul 19 2013, 2:36 PM] kimxtom: @anna @grammasheri I think there are some folks, like me, who would rather just start “making” “building” “coding” without thinking too much about the process, and then reflect on it after the fact
[Jul 19 2013, 2:36 PM] grammasheri: rural north east washington state
[Jul 19 2013, 2:36 PM] edinnovator: @Anna – fyi, the NYC Writing Project just joined HIVE NYC
[Jul 19 2013, 2:37 PM] edinnovator: Chad did amazing work organizing as part of Blog for NWP
[Jul 19 2013, 2:37 PM] edinnovator: As part of his co-founded Cooperative Catalyst, multi-author educational blog
[Jul 19 2013, 2:38 PM] edinnovator: Coop Catalyst: http://coopcatalyst.wordpress.com/
[Jul 19 2013, 2:38 PM] grammasheri: @kim yes, understand — all of us have a different process, and that is the point, isn’t it? Open Learning —
[Jul 19 2013, 2:38 PM] chadsansing: It was a well-timed invitation to a fantastic network of teachers and learners πŸ™‚
[Jul 19 2013, 2:38 PM] technolibrary: Link to Buffy Hamilton presentation on public library makerspaces http://tinyurl.com/k57pn4s
[Jul 19 2013, 2:38 PM] Anna: @Kim Oh, I wasn’t intending to say one should happen before the other or that individual’s should think more about the process. I was thinking more about the emphasis in our communities on end-products.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:39 PM] grammasheri: @technolibrary Link didn’t work πŸ™
[Jul 19 2013, 2:39 PM] Anna: Gotta jet! Great conversation! My next challenge for Melissa and Chad and participants both live and in the chatroll…What can you *make* with and from this Hangout?
[Jul 19 2013, 2:39 PM] chadsansing: Webmaker UNESCO Remix: https://blog.webmaker.org/unesco-remix
[Jul 19 2013, 2:40 PM] technolibrary: being active players means part of civic conversation.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:40 PM] kimxtom: @Anna @grammasheri thanks!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:41 PM] edinnovator: I also need to run … great conversation, all. Looking forward to continuing at G+. Also, speaking of civic engagement, don’t forget to check out next week’s Connected Learning TV, From Expression to Impact: http://connectedlearning.tv/expression-impact-youth-civic-engagement-enacted
[Jul 19 2013, 2:41 PM] grammasheri: So important to bring in all people; equity is issue. As Mozilla believes: “The Internet is a global public resource that must remain open and accessible”
[Jul 19 2013, 2:41 PM] tellio: gotta go, gonna watch the rest asynch. gr8 stuff
[Jul 19 2013, 2:41 PM] technolibrary: Here’s a better link for Buffy’s presentation http://tinyurl.com/lx3z9p4
[Jul 19 2013, 2:42 PM] Amy Cody Clancy: I appreciate the link to teachtheweb hosting a MOOC- I have been tossing around the idea of trying one for our KY English group and maybe even a MOOC club for our 8 graders next summer….
[Jul 19 2013, 2:42 PM] grammasheri: bye tellio; thenks for updated link #technolibrary
[Jul 19 2013, 2:43 PM] technolibrary: Welcome!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:43 PM] Chris Lawrence: Here is a link to our Maker CORP preparing their in (summer) school program: http://hivemakercorps.weebly.com/
[Jul 19 2013, 2:43 PM] technolibrary: Interesting article, Melissa.
[Jul 19 2013, 2:44 PM] Amy Cody Clancy: Awesome! One thing I really want is more collaboration with the outside world- getting the kids “out” and more technology integration that is meaningful for my students
[Jul 19 2013, 2:44 PM] grammasheri: @Amy Me too
[Jul 19 2013, 2:45 PM] Amy Cody Clancy: I have found that kids are ahead of us anyway- so even if we fear trying something new- you can do what I did- choose a few students- challenge them to complete the project on their own and they become your tech specialists to assist in the classroom
[Jul 19 2013, 2:45 PM] Amy Cody Clancy: I did this with podcasting- had NO idea how to do it- the kids taught me!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:46 PM] grammasheri: Have found my students will always hack my assignments. πŸ™‚ And I just give them options, even as Amy says, they teach me the tech (bitstrips)
[Jul 19 2013, 2:47 PM] Amy Cody Clancy: I never thought of it that way- kids hacking my assignments- but you know, they do! I always have kids who say can we do … this… instead…
[Jul 19 2013, 2:47 PM] grammasheri: @Amy I know!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:47 PM] Amy Cody Clancy: I think I may encourage that more- if you have a better idea- hack my assignment and change it (with approval) but I’m pretty open as long as they are learning and growing
[Jul 19 2013, 2:48 PM] grammasheri: @Amy me too! We’re makers!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:48 PM] Amy Cody Clancy: Yes ma’am!
[Jul 19 2013, 2:50 PM] Amy Cody Clancy: I am tossing around problem based learning/project based learning this year in 8 grade when we slide into informational unit… I think Makes can be a big part of this
[Jul 19 2013, 2:50 PM] Amy Cody Clancy: Right now I’m tossing around E-Waste but hope to develop and find enough readings and such to expand for more student choice
[Jul 19 2013, 2:51 PM] grammasheri: @Amy exciting.

[Jul 17 2013, 10:00 PM] writerswriting: Hey, Anna here.
[Jul 17 2013, 10:00 PM] edinnovator: Hi Anna!
[Jul 17 2013, 10:00 PM] karen: Hi, Anna.
[Jul 17 2013, 10:01 PM] writerswriting: Are we booked in the live version or do we have space for me to jump in?
[Jul 17 2013, 10:01 PM] writerswriting: Hi Karen! How has your week been?
[Jul 17 2013, 10:01 PM] karen: I think there’s room, Anna.
[Jul 17 2013, 10:01 PM] karen: Good week here.
[Jul 17 2013, 10:01 PM] writerswriting: Cool. Is the link posted in G+?
[Jul 17 2013, 10:01 PM] edinnovator: Yes, there’s definitely room, Anna. And yes, the link is posted in the G+ community.
[Jul 17 2013, 10:01 PM] edinnovator: Hi Terry!
[Jul 17 2013, 10:02 PM] karen: Hi, Terry.
[Jul 17 2013, 10:02 PM] tellio: hi ya, the one
[Jul 17 2013, 10:02 PM] writerswriting: Oh, I just found it!
[Jul 17 2013, 10:02 PM] edinnovator: Here it is: https://plus.google.com/hangouts/_/36006f5dd76f5271f7703faa25657ac97c14c418
[Jul 17 2013, 10:02 PM] edinnovator: What’s going on, friends?
[Jul 17 2013, 10:03 PM] karen: I’m multitasking and trying to edit a video from today…missing my big monitor!
[Jul 17 2013, 10:03 PM] edinnovator: we miss seeing you in front of your big monitor, Karen πŸ™‚
[Jul 17 2013, 10:03 PM] karen: How was birthing class?
[Jul 17 2013, 10:03 PM] tellio: I just finished giving our eldest kitty a flea bath
[Jul 17 2013, 10:03 PM] karen: eewww…
[Jul 17 2013, 10:03 PM] edinnovator: nice, Terry. I’m sure the kitty appreciates it
[Jul 17 2013, 10:03 PM] writerswriting: So, Jeannie is sick and can’t make it. Steph is alone in the Hangout…with me πŸ™‚
[Jul 17 2013, 10:04 PM] tellio: Not even close, Karen
[Jul 17 2013, 10:04 PM] karen: Terry, why don’t you go join them? πŸ˜‰
[Jul 17 2013, 10:04 PM] edinnovator: birthing class was good – i imagined what it would be like if it were more like a MOOC.
[Jul 17 2013, 10:04 PM] edinnovator: Yes, Terry, definitely join in. You too Karen.
[Jul 17 2013, 10:04 PM] edinnovator: I’ll stay here in the chat space and make snarky comments about what you say.
[Jul 17 2013, 10:04 PM] karen: πŸ™‚
[Jul 17 2013, 10:04 PM] karen: #birthmooc
[Jul 17 2013, 10:05 PM] edinnovator: haha. love it.
[Jul 17 2013, 10:05 PM] karen: P2PU would pick right on that one…”learning about anything”
[Jul 17 2013, 10:05 PM] edinnovator: i’m sure they would … we could create a “badges for birthing” framework
[Jul 17 2013, 10:06 PM] karen: re: snark… #MST3k-clmooc
[Jul 17 2013, 10:06 PM] karen: …and I think if you deliver, you get the badge
[Jul 17 2013, 10:06 PM] karen: we’re not saving this chat, are we? πŸ™‚
[Jul 17 2013, 10:07 PM] karen: Who else is here? I see 2 other viewers. (We’ll be starting soon, folks. Just ignore us in the meantime. πŸ™‚
[Jul 17 2013, 10:07 PM] edinnovator: haha. Um, yes, I think this will be saved.
[Jul 17 2013, 10:08 PM] karen: Oh, good. We’re back on topic now. Welcome everyone.
[Jul 17 2013, 10:08 PM] karen: If anyone wants to join live: https://plus.google.com/hangouts/_/36006f5dd76f5271f7703faa25657ac97c14c418
[Jul 17 2013, 10:08 PM] karen: We do love Jeanne!
[Jul 17 2013, 10:13 PM] Seecantrill: hi all!
[Jul 17 2013, 10:14 PM] karen: Hi, Christina.
[Jul 17 2013, 10:17 PM] Seecantrill: hang out is choppy here. for you guys too?
[Jul 17 2013, 10:17 PM] edinnovator: not for me
[Jul 17 2013, 10:17 PM] writerswriting: Not for us in it. Come join us! We have space!
[Jul 17 2013, 10:17 PM] karen: good here
[Jul 17 2013, 10:17 PM] karen: Terry, anxious to hear more about what you’re thinking about in terms of a WP theme
[Jul 17 2013, 10:17 PM] Seecantrill: finishing a popsicle … maybe when done?
[Jul 17 2013, 10:18 PM] karen: I’m doing a bit of work on trying to make a nice community site with the BuddyPress stuff (possibly an open alternative to G+?…we’ll see)
[Jul 17 2013, 10:27 PM] karen: I’ve seen a lot of really good comments on blog spaces…more in-depth and conducive to this than G+
[Jul 17 2013, 10:29 PM] writerswriting: https://plus.google.com/u/0/107910732340440016022/posts/cgMSXgH17cV
[Jul 17 2013, 10:30 PM] edinnovator: Stephanie asked that we share this gdoc: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-rbY_o6w0Rrq9qvaAl1gUuQd4GYl0ZwTGVm_pTXLM20/edit
[Jul 17 2013, 10:33 PM] Seecantrill: not joining because my connection is being wonky here. hearing most of it … love listening/lurking here πŸ™‚
[Jul 17 2013, 10:33 PM] Seecantrill: good stuff.
[Jul 17 2013, 10:34 PM] karen: Need time for this… (slow moocs)
[Jul 17 2013, 10:34 PM] karen: You can’t “force,” but you can guide and encourage.
[Jul 17 2013, 10:43 PM] karen: Thanks for this, Terry. I have a draft post on some of this same stuff in process. Carrying on, moving forward.
[Jul 17 2013, 10:43 PM] karen: Buddy Press requires some custom set up and coding, but it can be awesome.
[Jul 17 2013, 10:43 PM] karen: G+ is not open.
[Jul 17 2013, 10:44 PM] karen: It’s easy and nice…but not open.
[Jul 17 2013, 10:44 PM] karen: Not only “not open,” but there are concerns about privacy, data ownership, archiving, other functionality, ongoing availability, etc.
[Jul 17 2013, 10:45 PM] karen: Have to think about whether you want to invest real $ in something that may or may not be around any more.
[Jul 17 2013, 10:45 PM] karen: https://duckduckgo.com/
[Jul 17 2013, 10:45 PM] karen: Read up on Google and Prism for more on this…
[Jul 17 2013, 10:46 PM] karen: “internalizing facilitation”….I’m internalizing participation. In #clmooc, I am feeling more a participant than a facilitator. I’ve been reflecting on that too…
[Jul 17 2013, 10:48 PM] karen: Paul, it would be great to document what we’re hearing from lurkers. Maybe one more “the making of #clmooc” posts?
[Jul 17 2013, 10:53 PM] Seecantrill: I really wish I could hear better because interrogating this idea of conversation seems key to me …
[Jul 17 2013, 10:53 PM] Seecantrill: … I tend to think we are a very verbal society ..
[Jul 17 2013, 10:53 PM] Seecantrill: … what Anna said “word people”! πŸ™‚ …
[Jul 17 2013, 10:54 PM] Seecantrill: … and I often wonder the ways we communicate that aren’t verbal. on and offline.
[Jul 17 2013, 10:55 PM] Seecantrill: but … I’m going to reboot. I am hearing every other word. It’s kind of poetic itself πŸ™‚
[Jul 17 2013, 10:55 PM] karen: πŸ™‚
[Jul 17 2013, 10:55 PM] karen: Send us the link?
[Jul 17 2013, 10:56 PM] writerswriting: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1VzkRPaBXdESvAR8XOQiJjoUtpumXuU5TTt6xtGFgEBE/edit?usp=sharing
[Jul 17 2013, 10:58 PM] karen: We (public) don’t have edit rights.
[Jul 17 2013, 10:58 PM] edinnovator: @Karen – yes, I’ll try to document what we’re hearing from lurkers
[Jul 17 2013, 10:58 PM] writerswriting: Try again
[Jul 17 2013, 10:59 PM] writerswriting: oh, now try
[Jul 17 2013, 10:59 PM] edinnovator: BTW, I love the idea that silence can be thought of as participation, Anna
[Jul 17 2013, 10:59 PM] edinnovator: reminds me of a book by Kathy Schultz
[Jul 17 2013, 10:59 PM] edinnovator: called …

[Jul 17 2013, 11:08 PM] karen: Thank you all. Awesome as always.
[Jul 17 2013, 11:08 PM] karen: Terry and his roosters….
[Jul 17 2013, 11:08 PM] writerswriting: exactly
[Jul 17 2013, 11:09 PM] edinnovator: Night all!
[Jul 17 2013, 11:09 PM] karen: Ciao
[Jul 17 2013, 11:09 PM] writerswriting: Love those tweets, Karen!
[Jul 17 2013, 11:10 PM] tellio: Thanks to all of you. My roosters thank you too.
[Jul 17 2013, 11:18 PM] Seecantrill: Hey all. Nice folks! got to eat. night!

[Jul 15 2013, 11:50 PM] tellio: hi y’all
[Jul 15 2013, 11:50 PM] edinnovator: hi everyone
[Jul 15 2013, 11:51 PM] edinnovator: Paul Oh here as edinnovator
[Jul 15 2013, 11:51 PM] tellio: Terry Elliott here as tellio from Cave Country KY
[Jul 15 2013, 11:52 PM] edinnovator: Nice, Terry. “Cave Country” – I like that.
[Jul 15 2013, 11:52 PM] sriii2000: hello everyone…
[Jul 15 2013, 11:52 PM] tellio: Place defines us…it is just a little more obvious here
[Jul 15 2013, 11:52 PM] edinnovator: Hey Sam!
[Jul 15 2013, 11:52 PM] tellio: Sam? this is Terry
[Jul 15 2013, 11:52 PM] edinnovator: The “Sam” was for @sriii2000
[Jul 15 2013, 11:53 PM] edinnovator: @tellio I once had a long conversation with a rural colleague about the nature of place w/regard to urban living
[Jul 15 2013, 11:54 PM] edinnovator: Welcome everyone! This is Paul Oh as @edinnovator tonight.
[Jul 15 2013, 11:54 PM] tellio: Hello, LGreader!
[Jul 15 2013, 11:55 PM] LGreader: Hi everyone! Lauren, here, from NYC.
[Jul 15 2013, 11:55 PM] edinnovator: Hi Lauren!
[Jul 15 2013, 11:56 PM] sriii2000: everyone Sam here in Philadelphia, where the humidity is outrageous!
[Jul 15 2013, 11:56 PM] Anna: Hey Joe, can you post the link to join in the conversation live? Not just in the comment roll?
[Jul 15 2013, 11:57 PM] tellio: @sriii2000 I hear you. It is a jungle here in KY right now
[Jul 15 2013, 11:58 PM] LGreader: Is this “Chatroll” a comment roll? By “joining in live,” Anna, do you mean through video or text?
[Jul 16 2013, 12:00 AM] sriii2000: good question…
[Jul 16 2013, 12:01 AM] edinnovator: Hi Lauren. The chatroll is just a synchronous chat where we can interact as the hangout occurs, for those of us not on the hangout.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:02 AM] edinnovator: The link Anna was mentioning was for those people who actually want to be IN the hangout.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:02 AM] LGreader: yes, that’s what I thought. I’m too unkempt and unpredictable for a group hangout πŸ™‚
[Jul 16 2013, 12:02 AM] Anna: And you can join in the Hangout here: https://plus.google.com/hangouts/_/stream/d624f184bd5cf5f816c9ce4f91dbdc4d4bd43220?authuser=0&hl=en
[Jul 16 2013, 12:03 AM] LGreader: is there a way to full-screen the hangout from the blog website?
[Jul 16 2013, 12:03 AM] edinnovator: As an fyi, the hangout is limited to 10 people. So if more than 10 try to join, the 11th will be shut out.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:04 AM] karen: Greetings all.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:04 AM] edinnovator: Leslie – you can make the video fullscreen by hovering your mouse over the video and then clicking the little square in the lower right corner of the screen.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:04 AM] sglass771: Hello everyone
[Jul 16 2013, 12:04 AM] edinnovator: However, Leslie, if you do that, you’ll no longer see the chat.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:04 AM] karen: @Lgreader, you can click the right-most icon on the Youtube tool bar to get it full screen
[Jul 16 2013, 12:04 AM] tellio: Reflection is making is reflecting. All the way down
[Jul 16 2013, 12:04 AM] Anna: https://plus.google.com/hangouts/_/stream/d624f184bd5cf5f816c9ce4f91dbdc4d4bd43220?authuser=0&hl=en
[Jul 16 2013, 12:04 AM] edinnovator: Hi everyone! Paul Oh chatting here as @edinnovator.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:05 AM] LGreader: Lauren πŸ™‚ But I got it through youtube and layered the chat on top. thanks everyone!
[Jul 16 2013, 12:05 AM] edinnovator: Sounds like a great workaround, Lauren!
[Jul 16 2013, 12:05 AM] karen: If you hasn’t been here b4, you can pop out the cat window with the icon in the bottom right in chat window
[Jul 16 2013, 12:06 AM] tellio: Ideas and objects are not separable in my mind
[Jul 16 2013, 12:06 AM] coordinatortwo: Hey Folks..
[Jul 16 2013, 12:07 AM] edinnovator: Here’s the Connected Learning TV series on Writing as Making: http://connectedlearning.tv/writers-work-making-and-connected-learning
[Jul 16 2013, 12:07 AM] tellio: Hi Jose
[Jul 16 2013, 12:07 AM] karen: Hi there.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:07 AM] coordinatortwo: Hi Terry, Hi Karen
[Jul 16 2013, 12:08 AM] edinnovator: And I’ll put a plug in for Anna, who’s on tomorrow’s CLTV webinar on “Learning Pathways,” at 10 a.m. pacific/1 p.m. eastern.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:08 AM] sriii2000: sorry for the confusion
[Jul 16 2013, 12:09 AM] Anna: No problem!
[Jul 16 2013, 12:09 AM] karen: If you’re in the hangout, make sure to pause (stop) the video here on the clmooc page
[Jul 16 2013, 12:09 AM] LGreader: Do we reflect as we make? Or only afterwards? How does “reflect” differ from being metacognitive or reflective about choices throughout a process?
[Jul 16 2013, 12:09 AM] karen: I often reflect while I make.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:10 AM] LGreader: And is reflection more powerful when it’s written (preserved) and shared as opposed to internal and private?
[Jul 16 2013, 12:10 AM] coordinatortwo: reflection is part of the process
[Jul 16 2013, 12:10 AM] Anna: Don’t feel shy to jump in! Or to post comments here. https://plus.google.com/hangouts/_/stream/d624f184bd5cf5f816c9ce4f91dbdc4d4bd43220?authuser=0&hl=en
[Jul 16 2013, 12:10 AM] sglass771: Seems like the creative process is always a recursive one. There is ongoing reflection.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:10 AM] edinnovator: I think making and reflecting is a recursive process.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:11 AM] tellio: I think we discriminate b/t cognition and the body when they are connected. This mind/body split has been bad news for the west since Descartes
[Jul 16 2013, 12:11 AM] sglass771: Hey Paul–looks like we’re on the same wavelength.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:12 AM] Anna: Yes, Terry!
[Jul 16 2013, 12:12 AM] edinnovator: @sglass771 Yes, I was going to “jinx” you.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:12 AM] coordinatortwo: Reflection is a way to start looking at next steps
[Jul 16 2013, 12:12 AM] tellio: Need to focus on it.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:12 AM] sglass771: How does jinx work when you aren’t communicating verbally?
[Jul 16 2013, 12:13 AM] LGreader: Paul typed it first πŸ™‚
[Jul 16 2013, 12:13 AM] karen: Having reflection be designated for the week is giving me a chance to pause and write some reflections that have been rumbling around my head.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:13 AM] coordinatortwo: I am not in a hurry to reflect… trying to let it sink in.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:14 AM] sglass771: Ok. I owe @poh a virtual coke.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:14 AM] edinnovator: @sglass771 @LGreader Yes. And now I relieve you of any jinx-related restrictions. πŸ™‚
[Jul 16 2013, 12:14 AM] coordinatortwo: Also thinking about how to reflect.. so many cool tools
[Jul 16 2013, 12:14 AM] LGreader: What about digital reflection? Reflecting publicly. Stepping forward to actively reflect. YES! Jinx, Anna!
[Jul 16 2013, 12:15 AM] edinnovator: @Jose – great point – figuring out the mode/tool for reflection, which I’m sure affects the reflection
[Jul 16 2013, 12:15 AM] poulingail: Audio issues. People are talking all over each othe
[Jul 16 2013, 12:15 AM] coordinatortwo: sound fine here
[Jul 16 2013, 12:15 AM] sglass771: Hey Jose-interesting comment. I letting something sink in a way to reflect? A difference between personal and public reflection?
[Jul 16 2013, 12:16 AM] tellio: Reflection is not just separating the signal from the noise, it is creating a signal from the noise. Making a new signal. Reflecting is making.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:17 AM] coordinatortwo: I tend to see what others are sharing on the google plus community and the blogs and then respond both to the posts and to myself
[Jul 16 2013, 12:18 AM] tellio: @coordinatortwo Yes, G+ can be a bit of a hall of mirrors
[Jul 16 2013, 12:18 AM] tellio: So Jose does that make you Bruce Lee in Enter the Dragon?
[Jul 16 2013, 12:19 AM] coordinatortwo: πŸ˜€
[Jul 16 2013, 12:19 AM] LGreader: Do we need to prepare our students to seek feedback from anyone? Not just the pre-selected people? How to give constructive feedback to strangers, and how to politely respond when you disagree?
[Jul 16 2013, 12:20 AM] Anna: (btw, great to see you here, LGReader!)
[Jul 16 2013, 12:20 AM] LGreader: (thanks, Anna!)
[Jul 16 2013, 12:20 AM] sglass771: LGreader–I think we do. To me it is part of teaching digital citizenship
[Jul 16 2013, 12:21 AM] coordinatortwo: True we don’t have to agree and setting up our students to realize that there are different points of view
[Jul 16 2013, 12:21 AM] karen: Lauren, they’re doing some wonderful work like this on feedback at Youth Voices if you haven’t seen it.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:21 AM] tellio: Joe is a fountain of questions.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:21 AM] karen: I’ve seen some really well articulated student feedback + requests for feedback as a result.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:22 AM] karen: The dynamic around f2f + online w/different groups is always interesting to me.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:23 AM] LGreader: Karen, I haven’t! Thank you so much for the suggestions. I have to run and *make* dinner (laugh track), but I look forward to watching the rest, and I’ll see you tomorrow at 1!
[Jul 16 2013, 12:23 AM] tellio: @LGreader we need to show students what the new network is all about; PLN’s, Hangouts, Twitter, and how that fits where they live
[Jul 16 2013, 12:23 AM] karen: Thx for coming Lauren. Have a good evening.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:23 AM] edinnovator: Following up on @Karen’s comment about Youth Voices, Chris Sloan created this great resource at NWP’s Digital Is based on youth response at Youth Voices related to a challenging issue: http://digitalis.nwp.org/resource/706
[Jul 16 2013, 12:23 AM] LGreader: beautiful! thank you!!
[Jul 16 2013, 12:23 AM] sglass771: Who is my community? I like that question. I look forward to sharing this whole experience with my students in the fall.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:24 AM] LGreader: Karen, are you @Kfasimpaur?
[Jul 16 2013, 12:24 AM] tellio: @sglass771 Sharing with the students. Yes, and where are the students.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:24 AM] karen: yes!
[Jul 16 2013, 12:24 AM] Ms_Barnhart: @sglass771 What a great question for all of us too. . .so many dimensions. . .
[Jul 16 2013, 12:25 AM] edinnovator: I would also add that these steps in going public with belief/response is not simply giving young people digital citizenship/literacy skills but also helping them become knowledgeable participants in our democracy.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:25 AM] edinnovator: Which is the topic of next week’s Connected Learning TV webinar, the last in our Writing as Making series.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:25 AM] karen: Interesting… πŸ˜‰
[Jul 16 2013, 12:26 AM] sglass771: @tellio @Ms_Barnhart I find most of my students have their very narrow communities but don’t understand how to leverage these tools to make connections beyond the social. They don’t yet have the digital routine.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:26 AM] karen: I wouldn’t ever have thought of “interest-driven” as “in their best interest”
[Jul 16 2013, 12:27 AM] Ms_Barnhart: @sglass771 I think we also have to help them manage their digital experiences. . .I’ve found they’re quite disjointed
[Jul 16 2013, 12:27 AM] tellio: Yes, the child’s chair is even regulated by its shape! Tables rule.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:27 AM] tellio: Gr8pt about authority and apology
[Jul 16 2013, 12:28 AM] sglass771: @Ms_Barnhart Absolutely. They’re every bit as overwhelmed as the rest of us, even though I know lots of adults think students have it under control.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:28 AM] edinnovator: I love the idea of a design thinking challenge to have youth create a physical plan for their classroom space.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:28 AM] tellio: Full participation assumes that the community has that value. And we do that at clmooc
[Jul 16 2013, 12:28 AM] sriii2000: Paul I love that idea too
[Jul 16 2013, 12:29 AM] tellio: @sglass771 I think it is good to wear our student’s shoes.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:29 AM] karen: I feel like “full participation” isn’t really a measure in #clmooc.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:29 AM] karen: All participation is good!
[Jul 16 2013, 12:29 AM] sriii2000: Im going to try that out this summer with these Boys Writing Workshops I am doing with PhilWP and Scholastic… It should be fun. having boys create their own art and writing space
[Jul 16 2013, 12:29 AM] coordinatortwo: @Karen any..
[Jul 16 2013, 12:29 AM] karen: yep
[Jul 16 2013, 12:29 AM] edinnovator: @sriii2000 Sounds great, Sam. Let us know how it goes.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:30 AM] tellio: By full I don’t mean maximum busy. I mean maximum opportunity.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:30 AM] sriii2000: yeah, Im excite the MOOC has inspired some of my thinkining
[Jul 16 2013, 12:30 AM] karen: I’m working on a plan for a kids maker day later this summer. Would love some suggestions/input. I’ll post on g+.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:30 AM] sglass771: @tellio. Yes. I started teaching a new class last year and stressed to my students that I needed/wanted them to help set tone/direction. It was so great/nerve-wracking to let them see my uncertainty.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:31 AM] karen: This is a nice super-participative group.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:31 AM] edinnovator: I agree, @Karen. And a very supportive and positive group.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:32 AM] karen: I always think, though, about the folks who aren’t visibly participating. I’m going to reflect on that this week.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:32 AM] tellio: Here is a make in honor of your Make tonight: https://plus.google.com/114657917744130882099/posts/FiRRZChyR97
[Jul 16 2013, 12:32 AM] edinnovator: I wonder how much that style of support is critical to support making, which inevitably involves experimentation and, often, failures?
[Jul 16 2013, 12:32 AM] tellio: Try the popcorn movie poster.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:33 AM] Ms_Barnhart: In terms of implementing this kind of activity with kids. . .how does this multi-layered experience allow/not allow for the essential idea of reflection? I think my students engage in the moment and don’t reflect on the significance.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:34 AM] karen: Reflection needs to be structured in, I think, for kids and adults.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:34 AM] tellio: Not yet
[Jul 16 2013, 12:34 AM] LGreader: Tellio, how did you create the movie poster?
[Jul 16 2013, 12:35 AM] LGreader: photoshop?
[Jul 16 2013, 12:35 AM] sglass771: @Ms_Barnhart Good point. Kids definitely need experience with the quieter, individual reflection.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:35 AM] Ms_Barnhart: @karen Agreed but I also have found it needs to not only be scaffolded in but overtly discussed as an important function of learning
[Jul 16 2013, 12:36 AM] edinnovator: @Anna I can’t see the gdoc, fyi.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:36 AM] Ms_Barnhart: I admit I sometimes it’s enough to just work it in but they don’t intuitively understand its role unless we’re explicit
[Jul 16 2013, 12:37 AM] sglass771: Is there a link to the gdoc?
[Jul 16 2013, 12:37 AM] tellio: de nada and too easy
[Jul 16 2013, 12:37 AM] karen: Can you make it public and share a link? (or screen share)
[Jul 16 2013, 12:37 AM] tellio: send us the public link
[Jul 16 2013, 12:38 AM] coordinatortwo: to see yes
[Jul 16 2013, 12:38 AM] Ms_Barnhart: @tellio didn’t you share the link above?
[Jul 16 2013, 12:38 AM] sriii2000: its cool how they are figuring stuff out on the fly…
[Jul 16 2013, 12:38 AM] Anna: https://docs.google.com/document/d/11j_nGUHU-W9Qvv9WCqHqHBHVglM8HO6BtmwdbNsiMUA/edit?usp=sharing
[Jul 16 2013, 12:38 AM] edinnovator: Not sure if @tellio answered your question, @LGreader, but @tellio used a Mozilla tool called Thimble to make the movie poster.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:38 AM] sriii2000: tinker … totaly rad
[Jul 16 2013, 12:38 AM] karen: Paul, could you reshare that link to Chris Sloan’s work on feedback?
[Jul 16 2013, 12:38 AM] tellio: @Ms_Barnhart I shared the Mozilla Popcorn site for making your own movie poster: https://blog.webmaker.org/movie-poster
[Jul 16 2013, 12:39 AM] Ms_Barnhart: Love it. Going to use it and a series of vine for my intro to my writing institute this week:)
[Jul 16 2013, 12:39 AM] sglass771: @sriii2000 I agree. Some of my favorite moments in the classroom are just like this. Trying to create something and the students are offering suggestions.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:39 AM] tellio: nothing yet
[Jul 16 2013, 12:39 AM] coordinatortwo: then the principal walks in πŸ˜€
[Jul 16 2013, 12:39 AM] edinnovator: The webmaker blog, in fact, features #clmooc today and a Thimble project made by @ChadSansing: https://blog.webmaker.org/tube-yourself
[Jul 16 2013, 12:40 AM] tellio: Anna needs to highlight Joe’s screen
[Jul 16 2013, 12:40 AM] chadsansing: Sara Green deserves a whole lot of credit for that Webmaker project, too πŸ™‚
[Jul 16 2013, 12:40 AM] Ms_Barnhart: @coordinatortwo inevitable.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:40 AM] edinnovator: Yes, for sure, @ChadSansing. A melding of great minds.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:41 AM] coordinatortwo: That will keep it on the main screen..
[Jul 16 2013, 12:41 AM] edinnovator: I need to run, all. Have a great night!
[Jul 16 2013, 12:41 AM] coordinatortwo: whoever started the google plus hangout can do this
[Jul 16 2013, 12:41 AM] Anna: Did you guys get the link to add pictures?
[Jul 16 2013, 12:42 AM] edinnovator: (My wife and I have a birth class to attend.)
[Jul 16 2013, 12:42 AM] chadsansing: @Anna, the link to the public doc w/ Joe’s invitation to add? Yes.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:42 AM] karen: How exciting!
[Jul 16 2013, 12:42 AM] karen: Have fun.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:42 AM] chadsansing: Have fun, @edinnovator!
[Jul 16 2013, 12:43 AM] sriii2000: amen! Kim inside of school relevant as outside of school… interest best learning vs in their best interest. profound!
[Jul 16 2013, 12:44 AM] chadsansing: http://cowbird.com/
[Jul 16 2013, 12:47 AM] Ms_Barnhart: Did a visual literacy unit at the end of this school year. . series of visual lit & 6-word memoir. . .if you’re interested, it was a great application of this in the classroom. . .http://visualliteracyphotoblog.blogspot.com/
[Jul 16 2013, 12:47 AM] tellio: Anna’s Easily Distracted Theater
[Jul 16 2013, 12:48 AM] sglass771: Daily reflection through photos/images.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:49 AM] Anna: Are you guys seeing Joe work on his computer?
[Jul 16 2013, 12:49 AM] karen: …food
[Jul 16 2013, 12:50 AM] tellio: Here is popcorn remix with just the yellow bucket:https://tellio.makes.org/thimble/remix-of-the-movie-poster
[Jul 16 2013, 12:50 AM] sriii2000: Ms_Barnhart do you have the how to of the visual literacy project you did?
[Jul 16 2013, 12:50 AM] Anna: distracted or just focused on something else, Terry? πŸ™‚
[Jul 16 2013, 12:50 AM] tellio: Joseph McCaleb said much the same thing last week
[Jul 16 2013, 12:51 AM] Ms_Barnhart: I can send you info . . .email me: anniebarnhart@gmail.com
[Jul 16 2013, 12:51 AM] sriii2000: cool
[Jul 16 2013, 12:51 AM] sglass771: Ms_Barnhart. Cool blogspot site. I had students using that mosaic view to put together some interesting images.
[Jul 16 2013, 12:51 AM] Ms_Barnhart: @srii2000 It was really effective & engaging for them
[Jul 16 2013, 12:51 AM] sriii2000: its important for us to not only see great work but the how to for models for us to try out
[Jul 16 2013, 12:53 AM] tellio: @sriii2000 agreed, remix mode is a common one in the mooc
[Jul 16 2013, 12:54 AM] sriii2000: Annie, thanx for sharing
[Jul 16 2013, 12:54 AM] Ms_Barnhart: That’s why NWP is so great!
[Jul 16 2013, 12:54 AM] sriii2000: yep
[Jul 16 2013, 12:55 AM] karen: Great project…inspired us to do something similar for Connected Educator month last year
[Jul 16 2013, 12:55 AM] karen: I love that folks are doing make bank entries while we’re talking
[Jul 16 2013, 12:55 AM] karen: (me too)
[Jul 16 2013, 12:58 AM] Anna: Could someone pull the links from this comment roll into the GDoc with the images?
[Jul 16 2013, 12:59 AM] karen: My chat roll cut off at the top. You Terry?

[Jul 13 2013, 2:37 PM] karen: Good morning!
[Jul 13 2013, 2:50 PM] Christina: morning Karen!
[Jul 13 2013, 2:50 PM] Christina: it’s early where you are?
[Jul 13 2013, 2:51 PM] Christina: we had our garden meeting this morning (Community Garden) so that started my day and now this. πŸ™‚
[Jul 13 2013, 2:51 PM] bakersastros: Good morning ladies! Karen, do you have the link to participate? Terry asked me to join in.
[Jul 13 2013, 2:52 PM] karen: Hey there, you can join live here:

[Jul 13 2013, 2:53 PM] bakersastros: Thanks!
[Jul 13 2013, 2:55 PM] karen: Hi Christina. I’m home for a quick 48 hrs.
[Jul 13 2013, 2:55 PM] karen: I just harvested!
[Jul 13 2013, 2:56 PM] Christina: what did you harvest? I just got my garlic out.
[Jul 13 2013, 2:56 PM] karen: My garden has gone crazy while I’ve been gone. We had over 2 inches of rain.
[Jul 13 2013, 2:56 PM] karen: This morning…beans, lettuce, arugula
[Jul 13 2013, 2:56 PM] Christina: nice. do you usually have enough water or do you need to irrigate?
[Jul 13 2013, 2:57 PM] karen: Our garlic and shallots came out about a month ago.
[Jul 13 2013, 2:57 PM] karen: We irrigate (drip) except during monsoons
[Jul 13 2013, 2:57 PM] Christina: “just” means that I took the garlic out last week I think. it’s hardening now. I love fresh garlic!
[Jul 13 2013, 2:57 PM] Christina: And argula. but that’s way done out here at this point.
[Jul 13 2013, 2:58 PM] Christina: too hot here too.

[Jul 13 2013, 2:59 PM] Christina: … fun hashtag.
[Jul 13 2013, 2:59 PM] karen: πŸ™‚ lovely Christina
[Jul 13 2013, 2:59 PM] chadsansing: Just sayin’ howdy; will likely have to leave (just the kiddos & me this week), but wanted to say that this hyologram supports this hangout.
[Jul 13 2013, 2:59 PM] Christina: good for you vanhookc! exercise or transport … or both?
[Jul 13 2013, 3:00 PM] vanhookc: Exercise! I made a course and it was a gradual slope uphill all the way in FL sunshine!

[Jul 13 2013, 3:06 PM] Christina: @grammasheri — that’s Fred Mindlin from the South Coast Writing Project

[Jul 13 2013, 3:06 PM] Christina: oops, Central Cal WP (near Santa Cruz/Watsonville)
[Jul 13 2013, 3:07 PM] karen: #clmooc has opened up my willingness to let the “rough edges” show!
[Jul 13 2013, 3:07 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: Yeah, that Terry. I liked how Bart compared Terry and Kevin to pirates capturing participants.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:08 PM] karen: πŸ™‚
[Jul 13 2013, 3:08 PM] karen: Terry would be a good pirate.

[Jul 13 2013, 3:11 PM] karen: I used to think it was just a different expression of connected learning, but now I think it’s quite different
[Jul 13 2013, 3:11 PM] karen: Hi, Anna. If you want to join the hangout, it’s open today. https://plus.google.com/hangouts/_/50964de05088f9da84510a9adaf6a46b0a2b6c20?
[Jul 13 2013, 3:12 PM] grammasheri: Yes, it is. Their recent documents connect deeper learning to the common core, and will help with convincing others of connected learning, I think.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:12 PM] Christina: I love that Anna has a connected learning infographic posted on her bulletin board behind her πŸ™‚
[Jul 13 2013, 3:13 PM] karen: UN Declaration of rights of the child http://www.un.org/cyberschoolbus/humanrights/resources/child.asp
[Jul 13 2013, 3:13 PM] Anna: Hi Karen…Just listening in so I can clean the house…
[Jul 13 2013, 3:13 PM] karen: Sheri, I have mixed feelings about the ties to stds in both of these frameworks
[Jul 13 2013, 3:14 PM] Anna: I have enjoyed the process of shifting from “philosophy of education” to credo…
[Jul 13 2013, 3:14 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: I am inspired by the discussion to make a meme: http://tackk.com/q901lr
[Jul 13 2013, 3:14 PM] grammasheri: Karen, I do to, but that is the reality of our district.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:15 PM] Anna: Hilarious, Elyse. Kevin…make sure that gets into our meme collection!
[Jul 13 2013, 3:15 PM] karen: Sheri, I know that is the reality in most (all?) schools.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:16 PM] Anna: Beautiful, Ally.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:16 PM] karen: I’m struggling personally with how much to try to “play” within the system and/or how much to work outside/alongside it.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:16 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: Great point for folks at any age – to do for them what they can and want to do for themselves.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:17 PM] karen: Definitely related to values discussion…
[Jul 13 2013, 3:17 PM] grammasheri: Denise took this picture in my classroom; my students see it as they leave my room. http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7293/9119792329_f89ff4e29f_b.jpg
[Jul 13 2013, 3:18 PM] karen: Nice, Sheri.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:18 PM] Anna: My quote from Ally: Even the youngest people are competent and contributing individuals with interests and concerns to take seriously.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:18 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: Big piece of the equity discussion is to make sure that these environments are available for all youth, not just privileged youth…which means for all teachers too.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:18 PM] Anna: Yes, Elyse. And for all ages. Young and old alike.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:19 PM] grammasheri: Yes, Elyse.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:20 PM] karen: We love librarians!
[Jul 13 2013, 3:20 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: One thing I like about maker is that it shows the direct connection between play and things like jobs, which is very important for some communities to see.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:21 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: Yes, love the librarians!
[Jul 13 2013, 3:21 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: Wonder why her screen isn’t popping up.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:21 PM] Christina: Terry, can you click on the person talking as the conversation goes …
[Jul 13 2013, 3:21 PM] Christina: … the pictures aren’t shifting for some reason.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:22 PM] Christina: Thanks πŸ™‚
[Jul 13 2013, 3:22 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: Love dogs too
[Jul 13 2013, 3:22 PM] tellio: k
[Jul 13 2013, 3:22 PM] Anna: Is she my #clfit partner!?!
[Jul 13 2013, 3:22 PM] karen: Passed on that request. Thanks.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:22 PM] Anna: I have been trying to remember who that was!
[Jul 13 2013, 3:23 PM] Anna: Karen, will you ask Carol if she is the one who suggested #clfit?
[Jul 13 2013, 3:24 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: Awesome!
[Jul 13 2013, 3:25 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: There’s a little echoing — non-speakers might want to go on mute.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:26 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: Yes, that activity was fun.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:26 PM] Anna: Carol will want to mute her mic when she is trying to listen. The echo is coming through hers
[Jul 13 2013, 3:27 PM] karen: Terry says, yes #clfit was Carol.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:27 PM] Anna: Karen, would let her know that there are others who are interested with making, learning and fitness. Ask her use the #clfit hashtag in what she posts!
[Jul 13 2013, 3:27 PM] Christina: (Terry, click on her image now? Thanks!)
[Jul 13 2013, 3:28 PM] Christina: +1
[Jul 13 2013, 3:29 PM] Anna: I love the energy of everyone connecting right at this moment!
[Jul 13 2013, 3:29 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: Great points – reminded me of this share: https://plus.google.com/u/0/104936145189235152517/posts?cfem=1
[Jul 13 2013, 3:30 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: Love it – can be 5 people or 50000 people.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:30 PM] Christina: agree Anna!
[Jul 13 2013, 3:31 PM] karen: msg from Carol: “Will do – so much to learn about better fitness and share this – especially with our students. Book suggestion – Spark, the Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain by John J. Ratey, MD”
[Jul 13 2013, 3:32 PM] Anna: I just posted that in G+! What is Carol’s last name so I can tag her?
[Jul 13 2013, 3:32 PM] karen: VanHook
[Jul 13 2013, 3:32 PM] tellio: thanks Karen
[Jul 13 2013, 3:32 PM] karen: Canned curriculum is canned curriculum…online or off
[Jul 13 2013, 3:32 PM] Anna: Here is Joseph McCaleb’s post about his experience in this MOOC: http://dochorsetales.blogspot.com/2013/07/reflectionsdiffractions-on-nwps-making_12.html
[Jul 13 2013, 3:32 PM] tellio: Thanks anna
[Jul 13 2013, 3:32 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: @karen – exactly right
[Jul 13 2013, 3:33 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: Need to click to speaker
[Jul 13 2013, 3:33 PM] karen: The model of online learning I have in my mind is collaborative/constructivist.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:34 PM] karen: I often forget that the model others think of is canned content transmission.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:34 PM] karen: Important to talk about the continuum.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:36 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: I sometimes value that people have put together a ‘learning asset’ for me with a clear,curated set, etc…so that’s a fine thing. But it’s a different thing.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:36 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: I wouldn’t be inspired to share process and tentative starts in such a ‘learning asset’ situation.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:38 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: @karen – good point. We don’t have an elaborated language yet… so we’re stretching terms to cover vast territories.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:39 PM] grammasheri: People get out of it what they put into it, so people get out of it what they need, whether canned or not.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:39 PM] Anna: “Learning out loud” is a very different experience. Luke has shared about his experience “working out loud”: http://hokament.teamhokama.com/working-out-loud
[Jul 13 2013, 3:39 PM] grammasheri: Thanks, Anna
[Jul 13 2013, 3:39 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: @grammasher – so true
[Jul 13 2013, 3:40 PM] karen: true, Sheri.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:40 PM] karen: Can some kinds of experiences foster people putting in more?
[Jul 13 2013, 3:40 PM] Anna: Sheri, we are going to talk about that in our discussion on Learning Pathways on Tuesdays: http://connectedlearning.tv/learning-pathways
[Jul 13 2013, 3:40 PM] karen: community is important too. #clmooc
[Jul 13 2013, 3:42 PM] grammasheri: Anna, thanks for the heads up.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:42 PM] Anna: Karen, environment/fostering growth when the focus is on the learner will be part of the connectedlearning.tv conversation on Tuesday as well!
[Jul 13 2013, 3:42 PM] karen: remind us of the time Anna?
[Jul 13 2013, 3:43 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: Interesting to reflect on the structures that allow 400 to experience closeness moreso than 12. Those would be powerful design elements.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:43 PM] Anna: 1PM EST/10 AM PST on Tuesday and then a follow-up #literacies chat on Thursday
[Jul 13 2013, 3:43 PM] Anna: Yes, Elyse, isn’t that fascinating!
[Jul 13 2013, 3:43 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: The human voice is very powerful – and very intimate.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:44 PM] karen: Elyse, I agree. I’m looking forward to sharing #clmooc next week with a group that has a very different (and less positive) view of online learning (at BWP SI)
[Jul 13 2013, 3:44 PM] Anna: Ally, the hashtag #commentsforkids on Twitter is a great source for finding educators to be audience.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:44 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: Listening to podcasts (particularly through headphones) is like having a person in your head
[Jul 13 2013, 3:45 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: @karen – Bisti?
[Jul 13 2013, 3:45 PM] Anna: That’s how I go running! This American Life in my head. #clfit
[Jul 13 2013, 3:45 PM] karen: ?
[Jul 13 2013, 3:46 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: @Karen – Which is the “BWP”? there’s also the economic issue in HE, less about the experience than about restructuring the profession.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:46 PM] karen: Borderlands Writing Project
[Jul 13 2013, 3:46 PM] karen: Las Cruces
[Jul 13 2013, 3:47 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: Oh… Yes, Bisti is another one. πŸ™‚ See what happens when we allow people to name themselves!
[Jul 13 2013, 3:47 PM] grammasheri: Yes, that is true: always play around, do an activity, enjoy the learning, then sit back and reflect on all of its meaning
[Jul 13 2013, 3:47 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: @fredmindlin – thanks!
[Jul 13 2013, 3:48 PM] bakersastros: Thanks Anna…I’ll use that hashtag!
[Jul 13 2013, 3:49 PM] Anna: Karen, before it ends, would you ask if any of these guests want to host their own Hangout or Twitter chat next week with their own reflective question? If they do, they can DM or PM me, and I can help set them up. Same goes to those in this comment bar, Sheri, Christine…
[Jul 13 2013, 3:50 PM] karen: Will do, Anna
[Jul 13 2013, 3:50 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: Thanks Anna, yes, we’d love to help people take whatever learning steps make sense to them.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:51 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: Ha — we talk about the banking concept, so I guess that would be ‘online banking’ πŸ™‚
[Jul 13 2013, 3:52 PM] Anna: Ha! Elyse, that is perfect!
[Jul 13 2013, 3:52 PM] grammasheri: Yes, Fred. agree.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:52 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: I loved beyond that – it was awesome
[Jul 13 2013, 3:53 PM] Anna: I can’t get any cleaning done. I keep coming back to the screen to watch people talk. Great conversation!
[Jul 13 2013, 3:53 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: πŸ™‚
[Jul 13 2013, 3:53 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: Yay Andrew!
[Jul 13 2013, 3:54 PM] karen: Sub-communities around shared passions are so powerful.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:54 PM] Anna: I love these other words for “teacher”: connector, facilitator, ….
[Jul 13 2013, 3:54 PM] Christina: hey Andrew is here!
[Jul 13 2013, 3:54 PM] Christina: DIY.org is the website that Andrew works on.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:54 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: I think that DIY.org is a great example of something that has a credo and the credo is visible in the design and result
[Jul 13 2013, 3:55 PM] Anna: Yes, and put into practice as well!
[Jul 13 2013, 3:55 PM] karen: We are all teachers and learners!
[Jul 13 2013, 3:56 PM] Anna: “Follow your instincts” isn’t something that youth often hear. That is such a show of trust in their humanity.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:56 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: That’s an interesting thing to me…can you see deliberate values-driven design in online spaces.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:56 PM] tellio: and facilitators
[Jul 13 2013, 3:56 PM] grammasheri: For schools to transform, don’t you think the focus needs to move away from the emphasis of grading schools, teachers, and students by test scores?
[Jul 13 2013, 3:56 PM] Christina: I’m really interested in those language shifts in higher ed Terry
[Jul 13 2013, 3:56 PM] karen: I do. Something about that was in my credo actually.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:56 PM] Christina: I’ve been asked to help design a certificate program and want to move in that direction … so please share.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:56 PM] karen: (Sheri)
[Jul 13 2013, 3:57 PM] karen: Christina, portfolios?
[Jul 13 2013, 3:57 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: @grammasheri – absolutely. This is a context that really inhibits the change and growth we are talking about
[Jul 13 2013, 3:57 PM] grammasheri: diy.org: Get skills. Be awesome.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:58 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: Wouldn’t that be a fab motto for schools – get skills, be awesome.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:58 PM] karen: or even just “Be awesome.” πŸ™‚
[Jul 13 2013, 3:58 PM] grammasheri: Yes, Elyse. Says so much in four words.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:58 PM] grammasheri: Get skills. Be awesome. Work together.
[Jul 13 2013, 3:58 PM] karen: good motto for pd too
[Jul 13 2013, 3:59 PM] Anna: I love the present tense in “Get skills. Be awesome.” Youth are often told their value is in the future. Staying with youth in the present is radical relevance.
[Jul 13 2013, 4:00 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: Right – can’t plan for everything, so plan for emergence?
[Jul 13 2013, 4:00 PM] tellio: 32 years aS a teacher and she is hacking like a pro
[Jul 13 2013, 4:00 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: hacktivism!
[Jul 13 2013, 4:01 PM] grammasheri: Yes, education is about NOW; what we learn to do now makes us ready for the future. But trying to put the future’s objectives into today takes out the innovation and joy of student passions.
[Jul 13 2013, 4:03 PM] Anna: I think the focus on “fitness” and the comments on students following their passions is a conversation about letting us practice inherent agency. Moving learning from passive to active.
[Jul 13 2013, 4:04 PM] Christina: loving the summerologist skills … need to work on these: https://diy.org/skills/summerologist
[Jul 13 2013, 4:04 PM] grammasheri: Yes, Anna. Active learning.
[Jul 13 2013, 4:04 PM] karen: We are always here!
[Jul 13 2013, 4:05 PM] grammasheri: It seems like it. Awesome facilitation of this #clmooc
[Jul 13 2013, 4:05 PM] grammasheri: Thanks all.
[Jul 13 2013, 4:05 PM] karen: Thanks, Sheri. It is an awesome community with so much sharing.
[Jul 13 2013, 4:05 PM] Elyse Eidman-Aadahl: thanks
[Jul 13 2013, 4:05 PM] karen: Thanks for being here today.
[Jul 13 2013, 4:05 PM] karen: Have a good weekend everyone!
[Jul 13 2013, 4:06 PM] Christina: have a great weekend … practice summerlogy! https://diy.org/skills/summerologist
[Jul 13 2013, 4:06 PM] tellio: Christina: here is the link to the hangout\: http://youtu.be/Sid7RqQW5U8
[Jul 13 2013, 4:06 PM] vanhookc: Indeed! Thank you for the invite!

[Jul 13 2013, 4:07 PM] tellio: Thanks, Elyse
[Jul 13 2013, 4:17 PM] tellio: Christina, still there?
[Jul 13 2013, 4:18 PM] Christina: yup
[Jul 13 2013, 4:18 PM] Christina: funny … sometimes I can’t figure out what sound it is I’m hearing.
[Jul 13 2013, 4:18 PM] Christina: but I found you!
[Jul 13 2013, 4:18 PM] Christina: πŸ™‚
[Jul 13 2013, 4:18 PM] tellio: I need to give you a different link that starts a bit later. where can I send that?
[Jul 13 2013, 4:19 PM] tellio: you know for the archive
[Jul 13 2013, 4:19 PM] Christina: yes
[Jul 13 2013, 4:20 PM] tellio: who gets it and where?
[Jul 13 2013, 4:21 PM] tellio: I will send it to your email and leave it here as well. I don’t know if these hangouts come off but I sure dig the process and how Ifeel I have learned so much in them.
[Jul 13 2013, 4:22 PM] tellio: Here is the link that starts at 16;26 seconds: http://youtu.be/Sid7RqQW5U8?t=16m26s
[Jul 13 2013, 4:28 PM] Christina: sorry got a call ..
[Jul 13 2013, 4:28 PM] Christina: … this is great though. I’ll post it. Thanks Terry!
[Jul 13 2013, 4:28 PM] Christina: Great job this week.


July 8th

Making Learning Connected facilitators Terry Elliott and Kevin Hodgson led a G+ Hangout focused on Credos. Watch the recorded hangout below and check out the chat archive.

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkUiO8mrqZg]

[Jul 8 2013, 11:38 PM] Jenn Zuko: Here early…
[Jul 8 2013, 11:50 PM] Kevin Hodgson: Hi
[Jul 8 2013, 11:50 PM] Jenn Zuko: Hello
[Jul 8 2013, 11:51 PM] Kevin Hodgson: Hi Jenn
[Jul 8 2013, 11:51 PM] Jenn Zuko: Funny enough, I’m meeting with my DU class via chat tonight, so I better do some finger exercises…
[Jul 8 2013, 11:52 PM] Kevin Hodgson: Two chats; Two ears; Two hands … no problem
[Jul 8 2013, 11:52 PM] Jenn Zuko: Right?
[Jul 8 2013, 11:54 PM] Kevin Hodgson: We’re still getting things set and in prep. Great to have you
[Jul 8 2013, 11:57 PM] karen: Greetings all.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:00 AM] poh: hi all!
[Jul 9 2013, 12:02 AM] Jenn Zuko: Was afk, sorry
[Jul 9 2013, 12:02 AM] Kevin Hodgson: Hi everyone. Terry is hitting the big red “Go Button” on the hangout.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:02 AM] Jenn Zuko: Can’t see anything, do I refresh?
[Jul 9 2013, 12:02 AM] karen: don’t think it’s started yet…stay tuned
[Jul 9 2013, 12:02 AM] poh: i don’t believe things have started yet
[Jul 9 2013, 12:02 AM] karen: there we go
[Jul 9 2013, 12:02 AM] Jenn Zuko: K
[Jul 9 2013, 12:02 AM] poh: jinx, karen
[Jul 9 2013, 12:03 AM] karen: If any of you haven’t been on here b4, you can pop out the chat window w/the button in the lower right corner
[Jul 9 2013, 12:04 AM] grammasheri: I’m wondering what the link to the hangout is
[Jul 9 2013, 12:04 AM] Seecantrill: http://blog.nwp.org/clmooc/makes/make-with-me/
[Jul 9 2013, 12:04 AM] Jenn Zuko: I did have to refresh, FYI
[Jul 9 2013, 12:04 AM] poh: are you wanting to see the hangout on youtube, sheri?
[Jul 9 2013, 12:05 AM] grammasheri: Terry wanted me to join the hangout.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:05 AM] poh: ah
[Jul 9 2013, 12:05 AM] poh: ok
[Jul 9 2013, 12:05 AM] poh: let me send it to you
[Jul 9 2013, 12:05 AM] poh: or, i’ll post here
[Jul 9 2013, 12:05 AM] Seecantrill: That would be great Sheri!
[Jul 9 2013, 12:05 AM] poh: one sec
[Jul 9 2013, 12:06 AM] Chris Lawrence: paul, I dont have invite to hang out either
[Jul 9 2013, 12:06 AM] poh: here it is, sheri and chris: https://plus.google.com/hangouts/_/215032b517d9daf32fcbc6f02a3ee34c989d602f?hl=en
[Jul 9 2013, 12:06 AM] poh: sorry about that confusion
[Jul 9 2013, 12:06 AM] Jenn Zuko: I’m just spectating… πŸ™‚
[Jul 9 2013, 12:06 AM] grammasheri: Thanks @poh
[Jul 9 2013, 12:06 AM] poh: you’re very welcome
[Jul 9 2013, 12:07 AM] poh: #teachtheweb was great
[Jul 9 2013, 12:07 AM] poh: check out resources at webmaker.org
[Jul 9 2013, 12:08 AM] Jenn Zuko: I invited my students to participate in this MOOC, btw, and am still interested in how to incorporate the MOOC into a higher education curriculum.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:08 AM] poh: that’s fantastic, jenn
[Jul 9 2013, 12:08 AM] poh: we’d love to hear how that goes
[Jul 9 2013, 12:09 AM] poh: would love to hear what you see, jenn, as the possible benefits/obstacles
[Jul 9 2013, 12:09 AM] Seecantrill: yes, we would. would encourage you and/or your students at digitalis.nwp.org if you want to share a blog about your experience, etc.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:09 AM] Jenn Zuko: It seems as though many of them are hesitant, as they are paying mucho $$ for their courses, and getting credit for them, and aren’t yet able to see the “value” in a MOOC
[Jul 9 2013, 12:09 AM] karen: I think that Melissa T is also hoping to have some students jump in this week
[Jul 9 2013, 12:10 AM] Seecantrill: all over the globe!
[Jul 9 2013, 12:10 AM] coordinatortwo: Hey Everyone
[Jul 9 2013, 12:10 AM] karen: Hi Jose
[Jul 9 2013, 12:10 AM] Seecantrill: Hi Jose. Where does “coordinatortwo” comes from?
[Jul 9 2013, 12:10 AM] poh: I think that’s a dilemma with our mooc – whether to provide “credit”
[Jul 9 2013, 12:10 AM] Kevin Hodgson: We’re thinking through how to articulate our values as teachers. Terry wonders what process you went through/will go through to develop your own credo. What about you?
[Jul 9 2013, 12:10 AM] poh: @karen – that would be great!
[Jul 9 2013, 12:10 AM] coordinatortwo: @Seecantrill I was the second coordinator at my old school πŸ™‚
[Jul 9 2013, 12:11 AM] coordinatortwo: Title one / Bilingual at a pk – 8th school.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:11 AM] Seecantrill: ah! makes sense πŸ™‚
[Jul 9 2013, 12:12 AM] poh: i was once at a PD workshop on art and digital media that began with the question: What is your philosophy of education?
[Jul 9 2013, 12:12 AM] Jenn Zuko: @poh Yes, and then there’s the “legit” conundrum too–what classes/experiences are considered legit and what aren’t. And how $$ fits into all that…
[Jul 9 2013, 12:12 AM] coordinatortwo: Goes back to the vision and mission question
[Jul 9 2013, 12:12 AM] poh: we had 5 or so minutes to write
[Jul 9 2013, 12:12 AM] poh: and then we shared
[Jul 9 2013, 12:12 AM] Kevin Hodgson: Bart shares his credo https://docs.google.com/drawings/d/1l4mDltHp02RWtIOOzwLLZqgl-3WbIHBuvgsnj6meBSc/edit?hl=en&forcehl=1
[Jul 9 2013, 12:12 AM] bakersastros: @Kevin, I’m starting to think about my credo, and I’m writing words and statements about what “I believe”.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:12 AM] Kevin Hodgson: That’s how I started — I believe … in what? And then went from there
[Jul 9 2013, 12:13 AM] karen: @poh After Bud taught me about writing together, that was how I started the next pd workshop I did “What do you believe about education?”
[Jul 9 2013, 12:13 AM] Kevin Hodgson: Bart is seeking comments on his drawing, too. Add yours to help him think through
[Jul 9 2013, 12:13 AM] poh: @jenn yes, for sure. how do you think your students would get to a place of seeing the value of the mooc of learning simply for the sake of learning?
[Jul 9 2013, 12:14 AM] poh: @karen nice. i like that a lot.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:14 AM] Chris Lawrence: free isn’t always free however…we pay with our data
[Jul 9 2013, 12:14 AM] Jenn Zuko: I’d probably have to build a bird’s nest for mine. Maybe Prezi. Using video clips, quotes, etc. that others have said before / better than me.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:14 AM] karen: It worked surprisingly well with an otherwise pretty stiff group
[Jul 9 2013, 12:14 AM] karen: very true chris
[Jul 9 2013, 12:15 AM] Seecantrill: It’s true Chris … this did come up at our last hangout, but only briefly. important though to really think through in all this “making” and “connecting” heh?
[Jul 9 2013, 12:15 AM] poh: @karen every teacher has a belief about education, so there’s a common ability to engage
[Jul 9 2013, 12:15 AM] karen: data/privacy costs are getting higher not lower imo
[Jul 9 2013, 12:16 AM] Jenn Zuko: @poh That’s a really good question. The departments at both DU and Regis where I teach are all for professionals, many of which are being told to go get their Master’s. So most of them kind of don’t get the MOOC as a valid source of education. Maybe it’s better to get into when one isn’t already paying $$$ for a degree.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:16 AM] coordinatortwo: They can pull the plug.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:16 AM] poh: @Jenn Makes sense, Jenn.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:17 AM] mtechman: hi everyone, just here briefly – got to plan for Coderdojo tomorrow
[Jul 9 2013, 12:17 AM] karen: Hi there Melissa
[Jul 9 2013, 12:17 AM] poh: it’s probably important to have this same kind of conversation with our students/youth
[Jul 9 2013, 12:17 AM] poh: hi Melissa!
[Jul 9 2013, 12:17 AM] coordinatortwo: @mtechman good luck
[Jul 9 2013, 12:17 AM] poh: i.e., the “free isn’t necessarily free” conversation
[Jul 9 2013, 12:17 AM] karen: That’s ok if it’s poor design, Kevin. It will change next week πŸ™‚
[Jul 9 2013, 12:17 AM] mtechman: hi guys, only here 60 secs and sounds like a librarian talk already ; )
[Jul 9 2013, 12:18 AM] Kevin Hodgson: Chad is sharing his Thimble activities (remix and code and create)
[Jul 9 2013, 12:18 AM] Jenn Zuko: Yep yep
[Jul 9 2013, 12:18 AM] Kevin Hodgson: Karen — ?
[Jul 9 2013, 12:18 AM] poh: Good luck with coderdojo, Melissa!
[Jul 9 2013, 12:18 AM] mtechman: I believe in Chad.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:18 AM] coordinatortwo: I second
[Jul 9 2013, 12:18 AM] poh: nice credo, Melissa – we need a t-shirt
[Jul 9 2013, 12:18 AM] mtechman: Thanks, Paul – heard you were skyping into a room down the hall from my packed room today.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:19 AM] Kevin Hodgson: Chad’s Credo Thimble: https://chadsansing.makes.org/thimble/my-clmooc-credo Go forth and remix.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:19 AM] Seecantrill: Nicely designed Chad!
[Jul 9 2013, 12:19 AM] poh: yes, i was indeed
[Jul 9 2013, 12:19 AM] Kevin Hodgson: Notice his color coding … interesting visual elements to the principles and values.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:19 AM] mtechman: so helpful – these are such models for supporting learner efforts!
[Jul 9 2013, 12:20 AM] bakersastros: It might finally be thimble week for me!
[Jul 9 2013, 12:20 AM] Seecantrill: maybe Chad can talk about making in Thimble is part of his credo.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:20 AM] poh: good point, @seecantrill
[Jul 9 2013, 12:21 AM] poh: what about using thimble represents his credo, and vice versa
[Jul 9 2013, 12:21 AM] Jenn Zuko: You know, an erstwhile Prezi I made to apply to the TEDxDU talks is actually pretty much a sort of credo-ish…thing. Here: http://prezi.com/r24mgjom2bf4/?utm_campaign=share&utm_medium=copy&rc=ex0share
[Jul 9 2013, 12:21 AM] poh: @bakersastros – thimble is a powerful tool
[Jul 9 2013, 12:21 AM] mtechman: My credo is in my avatar background on Twitter: civility, Academic talk, openness, creativity, tool selection – and student art!
[Jul 9 2013, 12:22 AM] karen: Nice Melissa.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:22 AM] bakersastros: @poh, it is, and it is a wonderful learning platform also.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:22 AM] Seecantrill: prism what?
[Jul 9 2013, 12:22 AM] poh: a very interesting mix, Melissa
[Jul 9 2013, 12:22 AM] mtechman: Thimble really fits his credo -openness, flexibility, support
[Jul 9 2013, 12:22 AM] Seecantrill: Anna’s been encouraging us to share works in progress … so this is perfect Chris!
[Jul 9 2013, 12:22 AM] Jenn Zuko: Never used Thimble or Popcorn…
[Jul 9 2013, 12:22 AM] Kevin Hodgson: Chris Lawrence has his popcorn in motion (revolutionary). Still a work in progress ..
[Jul 9 2013, 12:22 AM] poh: @Jenn Thanks for sharing that; looking forward to digging in.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:23 AM] Jenn Zuko: πŸ™‚ I didn’t get in, FYI…
[Jul 9 2013, 12:23 AM] Seecantrill: get in or get it, Jenn?
[Jul 9 2013, 12:23 AM] mtechman: Paul! T-shirts for all!
[Jul 9 2013, 12:23 AM] poh: For sure, Melissa!
[Jul 9 2013, 12:24 AM] poh: love the appeals to develop community that is part of the HIVE and Mozilla Webmaker ethos
[Jul 9 2013, 12:24 AM] mtechman: Jenn – if I can work in Thimble (mostly using logic, not html – don’t report me) then so can you!!
[Jul 9 2013, 12:24 AM] Jenn Zuko: Well, yes, @Seecantrill. πŸ™‚ I didn’t get the talk. But it was fun to create anyway
[Jul 9 2013, 12:24 AM] Jenn Zuko: Yes! Thanks @mtechman!
[Jul 9 2013, 12:25 AM] poh: love popcorn – such an easy-to-grasp/use but powerful tool
[Jul 9 2013, 12:25 AM] mtechman: Does Popcorn Maker make a website that holds videos? I haven’t used it – knew it was for videos but am thinking now re Coderdojo website making tomorrow…
[Jul 9 2013, 12:25 AM] Jenn Zuko: I found Prezi through one of these type things, so I’m psyched to find more tools that are contemporary and useful. I’m still using Windows Movie Maker–ugh
[Jul 9 2013, 12:26 AM] poh: popcorn allows you to remix video, melissa
[Jul 9 2013, 12:26 AM] poh: the video needs to exist online already
[Jul 9 2013, 12:26 AM] coordinatortwo: @Paul.. your video with popcorn tool was pretty cool
[Jul 9 2013, 12:26 AM] poh: so you can’t “store” a video at popcorn
[Jul 9 2013, 12:26 AM] mtechman: Paul, do you get a resulting URL? like Thimble does?
[Jul 9 2013, 12:26 AM] poh: yes, you do Melissa
[Jul 9 2013, 12:26 AM] Seecantrill: Chris is referring to the infographic you can find here http://blog.nwp.org/clmooc/about/connected-learning/
[Jul 9 2013, 12:26 AM] poh: thanks, Jose! i was starting with great material
[Jul 9 2013, 12:27 AM] Seecantrill: (scroll to the bottom .. here’s a direct link: http://connectedlearning.tv/what-is-connected-learning)
[Jul 9 2013, 12:28 AM] coordinatortwo: @Seecantrill I was reading that yesterday.. and was thinking.. This is what all of this is all about πŸ˜€
[Jul 9 2013, 12:28 AM] Chris Lawrence: here is my in progress popcorn project https://claw.makes.org/popcorn/1879
[Jul 9 2013, 12:28 AM] Chris Lawrence: (warning its loud)
[Jul 9 2013, 12:28 AM] mtechman: Chad’s right – and parents liking what we’re doing…advocacy is in everything
[Jul 9 2013, 12:28 AM] poh: @chris awesome
[Jul 9 2013, 12:29 AM] Seecantrill: Yes, we are playing with these ideas! The facilitators have designed with them in mind … it’s all a big experiment of connected learning.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:29 AM] Seecantrill: I feel like we are learning things too … what do you think?
[Jul 9 2013, 12:29 AM] Chris Lawrence: been thinking about mobilizing the parent advocacy army a lot yesterday
[Jul 9 2013, 12:29 AM] poh: i personally like interest-driven because i think what’s embedded in that term is something beyond curious
[Jul 9 2013, 12:29 AM] mtechman: Learning so much!
[Jul 9 2013, 12:29 AM] coordinatortwo: Some pretty interesting things going on at http://ed.ted.com/
[Jul 9 2013, 12:30 AM] Jenn Zuko: This MOOC is a lot more fast-paced than the last MOOC I participated in. So I am learning bu also having lots of room to fall behind and miss a lot of stuff.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:30 AM] coordinatortwo: I especially like how you can take any youtube and flip it.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:30 AM] poh: there is embedded in the terms also the desire to connect to communities/subcultures/mentors to extend and expand one’s interests
[Jul 9 2013, 12:31 AM] mtechman: Our mission statement is from Microsoft but we still had to analyze it and derive it –uh from — I don’t know…
[Jul 9 2013, 12:31 AM] poh: @Jenn well, there’s really no falling behind at clmooc
[Jul 9 2013, 12:31 AM] mtechman: Love it! bold, kind (succinct)
[Jul 9 2013, 12:31 AM] coordinatortwo: Here is my remix http://ed.ted.com/on/pSQguAIY
[Jul 9 2013, 12:31 AM] poh: @jenn everyone is moving at the pace that makes sense for them
[Jul 9 2013, 12:32 AM] coordinatortwo: It was our theme song for 5th grade culmination
[Jul 9 2013, 12:32 AM] karen: That’s a million $ question, Terry.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:33 AM] coordinatortwo: I like that attitude Bart.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:33 AM] mtechman: In schools and public libraries, the mission stmts are usually solid… doesn’t mean nothing cringeworthy ever happens : (
[Jul 9 2013, 12:34 AM] coordinatortwo: That’s the Common Core Police
[Jul 9 2013, 12:34 AM] coordinatortwo: checking on us
[Jul 9 2013, 12:34 AM] Seecantrill: haha!
[Jul 9 2013, 12:34 AM] Jenn Zuko: @poh I know but for myself I like to keep up. Could be just me
[Jul 9 2013, 12:35 AM] poh: @Jenn i understand – i’m the same way
[Jul 9 2013, 12:35 AM] mtechman: @Jenn. I like to keep up, but I’ve only been able to dip in a little and it’s so reinforcing. Makes me want to have more time for it all…
[Jul 9 2013, 12:36 AM] karen: Dipping in is good.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:36 AM] mtechman: Academic passivity is what has built tht idea of cheating. Never cheating to construct what you need, when you need it…
[Jul 9 2013, 12:37 AM] mtechman: where’s my buddy Pannapacker when I need him?
[Jul 9 2013, 12:37 AM] poh: I like that perspective, Melissa
[Jul 9 2013, 12:38 AM] mtechman: It’s very freeing to remix. Chance to elaborate IS key to creativity – yes – what S said : )
[Jul 9 2013, 12:38 AM] Jenn Zuko: Noticing is what Sherlock Holmes is a genius at.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:39 AM] poh: I’m interested in hearing the folks on the hangout discuss the value of equity, and how making does or does not facilitate equity
[Jul 9 2013, 12:39 AM] Jenn Zuko: Equity? Or equality?
[Jul 9 2013, 12:39 AM] mtechman: Equity
[Jul 9 2013, 12:40 AM] poh: yes, equity
[Jul 9 2013, 12:40 AM] mtechman: Making supports equity, as it is open and we all learn together…
[Jul 9 2013, 12:40 AM] karen: Thinking a lot about equity today
[Jul 9 2013, 12:40 AM] karen: Equity means opportunity.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:41 AM] Jenn Zuko: Yes, and all learn what they need to, no grades or hierarchical success or not
[Jul 9 2013, 12:41 AM] karen: A lot of folks (youth and adults) don’t have a lot of opportunity to make…far various reasons. I #amwriting something on this.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:41 AM] poh: @melissa @karen for those who have access to maker tools and opportunities, though, no?
[Jul 9 2013, 12:41 AM] kd0602: Need access for equity. Making doesn’t always happen in schools.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:41 AM] mtechman: Also, admin loves to hear good stuff from parents – as they report re engagement, connections, authentic opportunities.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:41 AM] karen: jinx again paul
[Jul 9 2013, 12:41 AM] poh: πŸ™‚
[Jul 9 2013, 12:41 AM] coordinatortwo: We want some of that too…
[Jul 9 2013, 12:42 AM] karen: yes, kim
[Jul 9 2013, 12:42 AM] mtechman: Critical not to hv meaningful stuff be only in club setting.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:42 AM] karen: lack of equity around this makes me a little sad because it’s not about $; it’s just a question of what’s important
[Jul 9 2013, 12:42 AM] Kevin Hodgson: terry sharing his credo on 9slides http://9slides.com/Talks/Terry-s-talk3
[Jul 9 2013, 12:42 AM] coordinatortwo: A credo.. is like A teaching Manifesto? πŸ™‚
[Jul 9 2013, 12:42 AM] mtechman: Yes re access! some students today at Coderdojo who clearly don’t have access at home.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:43 AM] Chris Lawrence: i wish we wouldn’t detach access and equity…i worry that the CL principles takes an overly pollyanna view of equity
[Jul 9 2013, 12:43 AM] karen: yes, i think so, jose. in fact, i think terry has some thoughts about this all leading into a manifesto
[Jul 9 2013, 12:43 AM] poh: can you say more, Chris Lawrence?
[Jul 9 2013, 12:43 AM] mtechman: what do you mean detach? say more?
[Jul 9 2013, 12:43 AM] kd0602: @chris agreed–access and equity are linked in my view.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:44 AM] mtechman: lots of mobile access but some things are just easier on a laptop
[Jul 9 2013, 12:44 AM] Chris Lawrence: this was a pain point in mac/moz relations…moz was about access (open tools) and mac was concerned about equity….seemed silly to me
[Jul 9 2013, 12:45 AM] karen: not just access to hardware-broadband…also access to different ways of learning, different ways of thinking, civic engagemt, etc.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:45 AM] Chris Lawrence: they are linked, a progression
[Jul 9 2013, 12:45 AM] kd0602: and different opportunities for in and out of school learning
[Jul 9 2013, 12:45 AM] mtechman: sometimes in schools it is freeing for students to have access to others: other students, other ages, other countries
[Jul 9 2013, 12:45 AM] poh: @Chris right, totally makes sense, like @kim said
[Jul 9 2013, 12:45 AM] karen: chris, was there some thinking that they weren’t integrally liked?
[Jul 9 2013, 12:45 AM] coordinatortwo: @kevin you can hack your audio with audacity πŸ™‚
[Jul 9 2013, 12:46 AM] Kevin Hodgson: Sharing my voicethread for credo work https://voicethread.com/#q.b4727851.i24131556
[Jul 9 2013, 12:46 AM] Chris Lawrence: they were viewed as different and had to be negotiated between these two ideas
[Jul 9 2013, 12:46 AM] chadsansing: What’s good, #clmooc?
[Jul 9 2013, 12:46 AM] Jenn Zuko: yo yo
[Jul 9 2013, 12:46 AM] coordinatortwo: I like using voicethread with my students.. I like how you can change your identity..
[Jul 9 2013, 12:47 AM] coordinatortwo: I create an identity for each kid and I don’t need separate student accounts
[Jul 9 2013, 12:47 AM] poh: i need to run, everyone – class tonight
[Jul 9 2013, 12:47 AM] Jenn Zuko: Bye!
[Jul 9 2013, 12:47 AM] karen: Accessibility is huge
[Jul 9 2013, 12:47 AM] coordinatortwo: night Paul..
[Jul 9 2013, 12:47 AM] poh: great conversation – good night, all!
[Jul 9 2013, 12:47 AM] mtechman: and also, the blind community has a variety of needs – not monolithic
[Jul 9 2013, 12:47 AM] chadsansing: Bye, Paul –
[Jul 9 2013, 12:47 AM] mtechman: bye Paul : )
[Jul 9 2013, 12:47 AM] karen: see ya paul
[Jul 9 2013, 12:48 AM] Chris Lawrence: bye paul
[Jul 9 2013, 12:48 AM] karen: Accommodations for accessibility nearly always benefit other unintended audiences
[Jul 9 2013, 12:48 AM] mtechman: interesting that is turning out to be my daughter who needs narration in some arenas more than my visually impaired son
[Jul 9 2013, 12:48 AM] mtechman: Yes! Karen said it!
[Jul 9 2013, 12:49 AM] karen: So Chad…for adults who don’t bring their own learning, is that sometimes an equity issue? (the ability to access self-direction for a variety of reasons)
[Jul 9 2013, 12:49 AM] Jenn Zuko: It’s the MOOC that says “Badass Motherf***er”
[Jul 9 2013, 12:49 AM] mtechman: Connecting with our own learning – my fav thought of the evening.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:53 AM] mtechman: And don’t forget the connective ink! #nerdcamp
[Jul 9 2013, 12:53 AM] Kevin Hodgson: Sense of play and collaboration are key ingredients to learning
[Jul 9 2013, 12:53 AM] mtechman: Conductive ink.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:53 AM] chadsansing: #nerdcamp4life
[Jul 9 2013, 12:53 AM] mtechman: Want that Tshirt too.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:54 AM] Kevin Hodgson: “localize context” — yes
[Jul 9 2013, 12:54 AM] chadsansing: @Karen – I think learning in community works for anyone w/o this learning already, but finding safe communities in which to begin is difficult and requires more and varied kinds of invitations.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:55 AM] kd0602: @chad and intentional invitations for authentic reasons
[Jul 9 2013, 12:55 AM] karen: kim, well that discards most pd, no?
[Jul 9 2013, 12:55 AM] chadsansing: @kd0602 Yes – just keep making them.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:55 AM] karen: does that make this an equity issue for teachers?
[Jul 9 2013, 12:55 AM] Kevin Hodgson: What advice would you give to folks starting a credo?
[Jul 9 2013, 12:56 AM] mtechman: yes, karen!!
[Jul 9 2013, 12:56 AM] coordinatortwo: Do I have to? Will be the first question we’ll hear from our own colleagues
[Jul 9 2013, 12:56 AM] karen: “gut” was the word that came to my mind too
[Jul 9 2013, 12:56 AM] kd0602: @karen for and about teachers both
[Jul 9 2013, 12:56 AM] karen: jose, that makes me sad, but you are absolutely right
[Jul 9 2013, 12:57 AM] mtechman: gut fits with what resonates (and then add art)
[Jul 9 2013, 12:57 AM] karen: is that their “fault” or the “systems'”…or ?
[Jul 9 2013, 12:57 AM] Jenn Zuko: Got booted
[Jul 9 2013, 12:57 AM] chadsansing: @Karen – yes, there is an equity issue – as Terry said, there is no formal program for this; some divisions attempt some work, but it becomes PD at that scale. As Chris just said, it has to be personal, there has to be access, and the invited has to have a need or want to join.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:57 AM] coordinatortwo: Taking risks is important..
[Jul 9 2013, 12:57 AM] mtechman: I’m an “all of the above” learner.
[Jul 9 2013, 12:58 AM] karen: stay tuned for more thoughts on this tchr equity issue from me…hope you’ll all chime in and help me form my thoughts
[Jul 9 2013, 12:58 AM] kd0602: @karen looking forward to it! One of my favorite topics to grapple with!
[Jul 9 2013, 12:59 AM] mtechman: start anywhere
[Jul 9 2013, 12:59 AM] karen: thanks, kim
[Jul 9 2013, 12:59 AM] mtechman: Karen, I’ve given vent recently re PD, not always a sympathetic topic.
[Jul 9 2013, 1:00 AM] karen: me too…but i’m struggling now with where we go from here
[Jul 9 2013, 1:00 AM] karen: i worry a lot about the millions of tchrs who would never do something like #clmooc…what about them?
[Jul 9 2013, 1:01 AM] mtechman: It was fun remixing Sheri’s FindFive musings (fr Chad’s template) into some fun stories I saw on Twitter last night re people trying to write and what gets in the way.
[Jul 9 2013, 1:01 AM] coordinatortwo: @karen not even aware.
[Jul 9 2013, 1:01 AM] Jenn Zuko: @karen: well hopefully they still have teachers in their past they remain inspired by.
[Jul 9 2013, 1:01 AM] karen: but if they were aware? … many (most?) would pass
[Jul 9 2013, 1:01 AM] coordinatortwo: the tech coordinator at my school is in charge of inventory.. that’s about it
[Jul 9 2013, 1:02 AM] karen: Jose, LAUSD comes to mind.
[Jul 9 2013, 1:02 AM] chadsansing: @Karen – tough to figure out where to focus – on kids or adults, which generation, both at once?
[Jul 9 2013, 1:02 AM] Kevin Hodgson: Thanks to all the chatters
[Jul 9 2013, 1:02 AM] karen: …and btw, i’m so glad you are here jose!
[Jul 9 2013, 1:02 AM] mtechman: This was so good, I was supposed to leave early and I couldn’t. So thanks, all.
[Jul 9 2013, 1:02 AM] Kevin Hodgson: Good night!
[Jul 9 2013, 1:02 AM] Jenn Zuko: Nighty night
[Jul 9 2013, 1:02 AM] chadsansing: Great chat – thank you all! Super prompts and sharing.
[Jul 9 2013, 1:02 AM] coordinatortwo: We have a technology magnet within our school.. which I am not part of
[Jul 9 2013, 1:02 AM] Chris Lawrence: night all
[Jul 9 2013, 1:02 AM] karen: yes, tough. if we don’t address tchrs though, it’s hard to make big scale change w/students imo
[Jul 9 2013, 1:03 AM] karen: Thanks all. You’re great.
[Jul 9 2013, 1:03 AM] Seecantrill: workin’ on my popcorn video now!
[Jul 9 2013, 1:03 AM] coordinatortwo: haven’t seen any “tech” as in MOOC fashion in the 7 years I have been there
[Jul 9 2013, 1:03 AM] kttrend: Thanks everyone
[Jul 9 2013, 1:03 AM] karen: See you again soon.
[Jul 9 2013, 1:03 AM] chadsansing: @Karen – not sure big scale changes are possible in schools, you know? But in lives – yes.
[Jul 9 2013, 1:03 AM] karen: i can’t accept that change isn’t possible. what does that mean for our society?
[Jul 9 2013, 1:04 AM] karen: and then again, it does seem impossible.
[Jul 9 2013, 1:04 AM] coordinatortwo: great chat.
[Jul 9 2013, 1:04 AM] chadsansing: Society can move away from school, I think, but I think school is this thing that protects itself. I think the lever exists and the force can build over time, as long as needs be. Where is the lever? Maybe school, maybe not πŸ™‚
[Jul 9 2013, 1:04 AM] coordinatortwo: LAUSD is like the Titantic.. but we may still be in time to turn this ship around πŸ™‚
[Jul 9 2013, 1:05 AM] coordinatortwo: I don’t think public charters are the solution.
[Jul 9 2013, 1:05 AM] coordinatortwo: the other schools are left out on their own
[Jul 9 2013, 1:05 AM] karen: I agree Jose.
[Jul 9 2013, 1:05 AM] chadsansing: I just came from a grassroots charter that changed my life and work, but we were small and not meant to replicate a testing academy or anything like that. It might take all the efforts we can imagine at once.
[Jul 9 2013, 1:06 AM] karen: I struggle with the scale thing on a personal level.
[Jul 9 2013, 1:06 AM] chadsansing: You know, minus the testing academies πŸ˜‰
[Jul 9 2013, 1:06 AM] coordinatortwo: same here @Karen
[Jul 9 2013, 1:07 AM] chadsansing: _Walk Out, Walk On_ really changed my thinking about scale, where to begin, and how to operate in the systems that exist.
[Jul 9 2013, 1:07 AM] coordinatortwo: great conversation.. looking forward to all the makes.
[Jul 9 2013, 1:07 AM] karen: sometimes “the best we can do” on a small scale doesn’t really seem enough….
[Jul 9 2013, 1:07 AM] karen: I’m going to go write some now. Thx all.
[Jul 9 2013, 1:07 AM] coordinatortwo: btw.. I better look it up. I saw the newsletter but haven’t read it ;0
[Jul 9 2013, 1:07 AM] chadsansing: See you all in the happy toil of #clmooc πŸ™‚
[Jul 9 2013, 1:08 AM] coordinatortwo: See y’all tomorrow looking forward to NWP webinar

[Jul 2 2013, 11:36 PM] Patricia Kay Swank: Is anyone there? First time on chatroll
[Jul 2 2013, 11:43 PM] poh: Hi Patricia
[Jul 2 2013, 11:43 PM] poh: We’ll be starting up soon
[Jul 2 2013, 11:43 PM] Patricia Kay Swank: Can you tell me more about what we will be talking about? Just joined.
[Jul 2 2013, 11:48 PM] karen: Patricia, we’re going to be talking about the wk 3 #clmooc which has to do with making maps (possibly of many kinds :).
[Jul 2 2013, 11:48 PM] karen: …and welcome to #clmooc!
[Jul 2 2013, 11:50 PM] Patricia Kay Swank: Thank you. That sounds great! We have our last day of an Advanced ISI tomorrow where folks are mapping out where we have been over the last 5 days.
[Jul 2 2013, 11:50 PM] karen: Nice connection.
[Jul 2 2013, 11:53 PM] coordinatortwo: Hey Folks
[Jul 2 2013, 11:53 PM] karen: Hey, Jose.
[Jul 2 2013, 11:53 PM] Paul Oh: Hi everyone! Hi Jose!
[Jul 2 2013, 11:53 PM] coordinatortwo: Hi Paul, Karen..
[Jul 2 2013, 11:53 PM] Paul Oh: IF this chat window is too small, you can pop it out, fyi.
[Jul 2 2013, 11:53 PM] karen: Pop out button is in lower right corner.
[Jul 2 2013, 11:54 PM] Paul Oh: There’s a little square with an arrow in the lower right of the chat widget.
[Jul 2 2013, 11:54 PM] Patricia Kay Swank: Got it
[Jul 2 2013, 11:55 PM] Paul Oh: BTW, Karen, the chatroll issue last week was fixed by adding the chatroll plugin.
[Jul 2 2013, 11:55 PM] Patricia Kay Swank: Hey Christina!
[Jul 2 2013, 11:55 PM] karen: Was wondering about that. Thx.
[Jul 2 2013, 11:56 PM] Paul Oh: Before the show gets going tonight, I wanted to let people know that there was a great Connected Learning TV webinar earlier today on Writing as Making.
[Jul 2 2013, 11:56 PM] Paul Oh: Kicked off a month-long series.
[Jul 2 2013, 11:56 PM] coordinatortwo: oh yeah. it was pretty cool
[Jul 2 2013, 11:56 PM] karen: And it was a really *awesome* webinar.
[Jul 2 2013, 11:56 PM] karen: Try to watch the archive if you missed it.
[Jul 2 2013, 11:56 PM] Paul Oh: The archive should be available soon here: http://connectedlearning.tv/
[Jul 2 2013, 11:57 PM] Paul Oh: have people been making maps this week?
[Jul 2 2013, 11:58 PM] coordinatortwo: not yet.. mulling over some ideas. πŸ™‚
[Jul 2 2013, 11:58 PM] karen: I’m still thinking about it…
[Jul 2 2013, 11:58 PM] coordinatortwo: @karen that fruit salad stop-motion video was pretty cool
[Jul 2 2013, 11:59 PM] karen: Thx, Jose. I wasn’t sure about it.
[Jul 2 2013, 11:59 PM] karen: (but the salad itself was delicious πŸ™‚
[Jul 2 2013, 11:59 PM] coordinatortwo: yummy
[Jul 3 2013, 12:00 AM] karen: Hi, Sheri!
[Jul 3 2013, 12:00 AM] grammasheri: Hello everyone!
[Jul 3 2013, 12:00 AM] Seecantrill: Hi Patty!
[Jul 3 2013, 12:01 AM] coordinatortwo: hey Patty
[Jul 3 2013, 12:01 AM] Patricia Kay Swank: Hi to all!
[Jul 3 2013, 12:03 AM] karen: πŸ™‚
[Jul 3 2013, 12:04 AM] karen: Nice backdrop Anna!
[Jul 3 2013, 12:04 AM] grammasheri: I uploaded some maps in Google from an different account, but the images didn’t transfer. πŸ™
[Jul 3 2013, 12:04 AM] grammasheri: Vizify is a map of your tweets! vizify.com
[Jul 3 2013, 12:05 AM] karen: Sheri, I often have problems w/Google maps custom maps. Not sure why.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:05 AM] monk51295: cool chatroll
[Jul 3 2013, 12:05 AM] karen: Hi, Monika. (I was just thinking about you.)
[Jul 3 2013, 12:05 AM] Patricia Kay Swank: How does Vizify work?
[Jul 3 2013, 12:05 AM] Paul Oh: Hey Monika
[Jul 3 2013, 12:05 AM] monk51295: hey guys… you look lovely
[Jul 3 2013, 12:05 AM] karen: For anyone who just joined, you can pop out the chat window w/the icon in the lower right corner.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:05 AM] Paul Oh: We finally got chatroll to work as intended this week πŸ™‚
[Jul 3 2013, 12:05 AM] monk51295: hey aurora
[Jul 3 2013, 12:06 AM] tutormentorteam: I’ve been making maps for over 15 year. See some at http://mappingforjustice.blogspot.com
[Jul 3 2013, 12:06 AM] monk51295: who’s the guy from aurora?
[Jul 3 2013, 12:07 AM] Paul Oh: @Monika His name is Joe Dillon
[Jul 3 2013, 12:07 AM] Paul Oh: He’s on of the CLMOOC facilitators
[Jul 3 2013, 12:07 AM] monk51295: oh. joe.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:07 AM] monk51295: : )
[Jul 3 2013, 12:07 AM] karen: What’s with all the cool ppl around Denver? πŸ˜‰
[Jul 3 2013, 12:07 AM] grammasheri: @onewheeljoe is joe
[Jul 3 2013, 12:07 AM] karen: Hey, Michael! Nice to see your real-life presence!
[Jul 3 2013, 12:09 AM] Seecantrill: MyHistro: http://www.myhistro.com/
[Jul 3 2013, 12:10 AM] karen: Hi, Terry.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:10 AM] coordinatortwo: we had a great experience with Edmodo this school year also
[Jul 3 2013, 12:10 AM] Paul Oh: say more, please, Jose
[Jul 3 2013, 12:11 AM] coordinatortwo: We connected with a class in Long Island. We had the students have conversations around character education
[Jul 3 2013, 12:12 AM] Seecantrill: Here is Michael’s Learning Map: http://www.myhistro.com/story/hashclmooc-learning-map/72057#!learning-to-be-a-part-of-a-team-164559
[Jul 3 2013, 12:12 AM] Paul Oh: I’ve not been much in Edmodo – it facilitates connections between educators/groups of youth?
[Jul 3 2013, 12:12 AM] coordinatortwo: I used it as my classroom hub to our online and f2f activities
[Jul 3 2013, 12:12 AM] karen: yeah, kind of social network meets LMS
[Jul 3 2013, 12:13 AM] coordinatortwo: I left it open for the summer.. not very active.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:13 AM] coordinatortwo: I have to explore more with the apps on Edmodo.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:13 AM] karen: I like the “map meets story” idea.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:13 AM] Paul Oh: @Karen Me too.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:14 AM] grammasheri: Another map site and example: http://www.mapskip.com/stories.php?story=810
[Jul 3 2013, 12:14 AM] grammasheri: can create student accounts also
[Jul 3 2013, 12:15 AM] karen: Place is a big theme in my life. Definite map connections.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:15 AM] coordinatortwo: I used timelines to map out our learning http://timeglider.com/
[Jul 3 2013, 12:16 AM] karen: Yay for open licensed media!
[Jul 3 2013, 12:17 AM] sglass771: @Karen yes! I’ve gotten in the habit of changing the license on the stuff I upload to youtube. Too bad they don’t make the creative commons choice more obvious.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:18 AM] karen: I always turn off the location thing on my mobile devices #privacy
[Jul 3 2013, 12:18 AM] Paul Oh: I’m wondering: What is the appeal of maps for people? Why make maps?
[Jul 3 2013, 12:18 AM] karen: @sglass Nice! Sharing is good.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:19 AM] karen: We’re all “faking our way.” πŸ™‚
[Jul 3 2013, 12:19 AM] tutormentorteam: Maps create a better understanding of information. Picture worth 1000 words.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:21 AM] sglass771: Good question Paul. Not sure. But I know when somebody has a map hanging up I can look at it for a long time. Maybe some of it has to do with control-making something sprawling look manageable.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:21 AM] Patricia Kay Swank: Any other mapping ideas?
[Jul 3 2013, 12:22 AM] karen: I’m playing w/the idea of mapping the past and future (probably thru some kind of sketch…I’m terrible at this, but ds106 has encouraged me. πŸ™‚
[Jul 3 2013, 12:22 AM] grammasheri: Michael started a community game hack
[Jul 3 2013, 12:22 AM] sglass771: Patricia. I tried making some recordings on soundcloud–stopped every 100 steps from my house, talked about the spot and took a picture. Unfortunately I’m having uploading issues.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:22 AM] karen: I love that idea!
[Jul 3 2013, 12:22 AM] Paul Oh: I’m doing work in Oakland with youth, some of whom are mapping their community
[Jul 3 2013, 12:23 AM] tutormentorteam: As more people put their pins on the Google map it will be interesting to see how this leads to people connecting.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:23 AM] coordinatortwo: @Paul Oh.. cityscapes
[Jul 3 2013, 12:23 AM] Paul Oh: As a pathway to identifying systemic issues in their neighborhoods/communities
[Jul 3 2013, 12:23 AM] karen: Here’s the link to Kevin’s group map:
[Jul 3 2013, 12:23 AM] karen: https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=210594313450416317479.0004e074d85c77116098c&msa=0&ll=42.348966,-72.681513&spn=0.032415,0.077162
[Jul 3 2013, 12:24 AM] Paul Oh: @Jose I don’t think I’m familiar with cityscapes
[Jul 3 2013, 12:24 AM] jackiegerstein: Really like the 6 word memoirs on the map – great for moocs-virtual learning
[Jul 3 2013, 12:24 AM] karen: (I probably wouldn’t have done a 6 word memoir if it weren’t for this. Too much pressure as a stand-along activity… interesting)
[Jul 3 2013, 12:24 AM] coordinatortwo: I had my 2nd graders take a 16mb webcam with batteries home and take pictures of their community.. back in 2001 πŸ™‚
[Jul 3 2013, 12:24 AM] karen: Cue: #clmooc affirmation Joe
[Jul 3 2013, 12:25 AM] coordinatortwo: I called it cityscapes. I got 500 pictures back in a month.. each took cam home πŸ™‚
[Jul 3 2013, 12:25 AM] Paul Oh: @Jose Nice
[Jul 3 2013, 12:26 AM] Seecantrill: I love the spirals in the Land of Chad!
[Jul 3 2013, 12:26 AM] Paul Oh: “Map my way through the MOOC” – love that notion
[Jul 3 2013, 12:26 AM] grammasheri: in etmooc we shared 10 second videos in dropbox and created this to show “where we learn” we could have added maps; http://popcorn.webmadecontent.org/mb7
[Jul 3 2013, 12:27 AM] Paul Oh: Very cool
[Jul 3 2013, 12:28 AM] coordinatortwo: Chris Craft used to host “life round here” video project..
[Jul 3 2013, 12:28 AM] sglass771: @Paul. I agree. Almost like mapping as curation–pulling out the key moments/posts/ideas and shaping them into some narrative form.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:29 AM] Paul Oh: Mapping as curation – a fascinating proposition
[Jul 3 2013, 12:30 AM] Paul Oh: In some ways, Chad’s map could be thought of as that way – a curation of his life.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:30 AM] sglass771: Yeah, now that I wrote that, I’m intrigued. I’ve been working with curation with my students. This is a new way to think about it.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:30 AM] Paul Oh: What kind of curation work have you been doing?
[Jul 3 2013, 12:31 AM] Anna: Yes, mapping is really curating all the possible things to represent.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:31 AM] tutormentorteam: When someone says “map” are you thinking geographic map or a diagram of ideas?
[Jul 3 2013, 12:31 AM] coordinatortwo: Even landmarks in the neighborhood present and in the past
[Jul 3 2013, 12:32 AM] karen: All of the above and more I think.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:32 AM] coordinatortwo: @Dan I think it can work both ways
[Jul 3 2013, 12:32 AM] Paul Oh: And what we imagine to be true.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:32 AM] Paul Oh: One of my most memorable maps that I encountered as a youth was the map from Lord of the Rings.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:32 AM] tutormentorteam: I think there are several forms but often I think that we may be visualizing two different concepts when talking about maps.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:33 AM] tutormentorteam: When I use GIS maps I’m showing distribution of information across a city or zip code.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:33 AM] Paul Oh: Please say more.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:33 AM] tutormentorteam: When I use concept maps I’m showing actions toward a goal, or organizing of information.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:33 AM] sglass771: @Paul Oh. A colleague and I had students pick some question or idea that is personally relevant and then curate some online presence in a thoughtful, narrative way. Here’s our site:https://sites.google.com/site/curationgbshumanities/
[Jul 3 2013, 12:34 AM] grammasheri: thanks for sharing the link @sglass771
[Jul 3 2013, 12:34 AM] tellio: sorry to be late
[Jul 3 2013, 12:34 AM] karen: Hey, Terry.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:34 AM] Paul Oh: Cool. Looking forward to checking it out, @sglass771
[Jul 3 2013, 12:35 AM] tutormentorteam: This is a site with poverty maps and showing locations of tutor/mentor programs. http://www.tutormentorprogramlocator.net/mapgallery.html
[Jul 3 2013, 12:35 AM] sglass771: No problem. It’s become an obsession of ours–we’re planning on making it a more central part of the course next year
[Jul 3 2013, 12:35 AM] tellio: I love Hans Rosling’s maps of data
[Jul 3 2013, 12:35 AM] monk51295: we’ve been experimenting with the brain.. http://webbrain.com/ – exposing our non-linearity
[Jul 3 2013, 12:36 AM] Anna: Can any of you find that reflection post I was talking about?
[Jul 3 2013, 12:36 AM] tutormentorteam: This is a concept map communicating an idea. http://tinyurl.com/tmc-strategy-map – two uses of maps.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:36 AM] sglass771: @tellio Aaron Koblin has some pretty great maps, too. Although he calls it data something. He has an interesting Ted talk about it.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:37 AM] tellio: I love it when the screenshare goes all “recursive” all the way down’
[Jul 3 2013, 12:40 AM] sglass771: Tomorrow we’re driving out East. Seems like a natural fit for this make, however I can’t decide what to do. Suggestions anyone?
[Jul 3 2013, 12:40 AM] Paul Oh: Popcorn is one of the tools at Mozilla’s http://webmaker.org
[Jul 3 2013, 12:41 AM] tellio: @sglass771 thanks 4 the Koblin ref. He mentions the Yelp Mapping dealibob.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:41 AM] sglass771: @tellio. Cool. Btw, I tried getting on that vialouge/Gauntlett thing, but they haven’t been able to successfully send me a confirmation email.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:42 AM] tellio: I think Melanie is voicing what I have been thinking of as long form v short form.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:42 AM] Seecantrill: can you say more about the Terry?
[Jul 3 2013, 12:42 AM] tellio: sglass771 I know some of the folks who run it and will check for you if you want me to.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:43 AM] sglass771: tellio that would be great. I would like to try it out. Sent them an email, but haven’t heard back.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:44 AM] Paul Oh: @sglass771 How about side-by-side trip maps – one that documents the actual trip, one that documents the fictional trip-not-taken
[Jul 3 2013, 12:44 AM] tellio: Long form tied up with tl:dr and what we are doing on the G+ as mostly short form. Blogging as long form and vine as short form. I am not making a value judgment but am pointing out the imbalance I sometimes feel
[Jul 3 2013, 12:45 AM] jackiegerstein: Great metric – loving and sharing learning – works for me.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:45 AM] Paul Oh: @Jackie Me too.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:46 AM] tellio: @seecantrill slow food v fast food; slow reading movement. Slow moocing movement?
[Jul 3 2013, 12:46 AM] sglass771: @Paul Oh. That’s intriguing.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:46 AM] jackiegerstein: πŸ™‚
[Jul 3 2013, 12:46 AM] karen: Re: personal… my very rural address doesn’t show up on Google maps. I really think about that when I pin myself to a map. Anonymity, privacy…
[Jul 3 2013, 12:47 AM] Paul Oh: @sglass771 I was inspired by invisiblecityaudiotours.org
[Jul 3 2013, 12:47 AM] tutormentorteam: Add yourself to the #clmooc map. http://goo.gl/maps/QfTJq See who else is involved and lives near you.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:48 AM] tellio: @karen When I needed addresses for my short map make today, I had to leave people out who I couldn’t place.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:48 AM] karen: It’s good that there are some places that Google still doesn’t know about. πŸ™‚
[Jul 3 2013, 12:49 AM] tellio: @anna every metaphor is a mapping of the world.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:50 AM] tellio: @anna kinetic typography
[Jul 3 2013, 12:50 AM] karen: stop motion?
[Jul 3 2013, 12:51 AM] jackiegerstein: This http://www.mta.info/mta/aft/poetry/ ?
[Jul 3 2013, 12:52 AM] Anna: @terry thank you!
[Jul 3 2013, 12:52 AM] sglass771: @PaulOh Just checked out that site. What a great organization.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:52 AM] karen: yeah, why is that cactus so huge??
[Jul 3 2013, 12:53 AM] Anna: yes, @jackie
[Jul 3 2013, 12:53 AM] Paul Oh: @sglass771 – yeah, met the founder, who is an artist who works for National Novel Writing Month
[Jul 3 2013, 12:54 AM] tutormentorteam: You can map Linked in and Facebook by location. I’ve not seen mapping of Twitter by geography.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:54 AM] Paul Oh: Which I have nostalgia for now, as BART workers are striking πŸ™‚
[Jul 3 2013, 12:55 AM] karen: I feel more real connection w/many of my online connections than I do with some of my f2f ones
[Jul 3 2013, 12:55 AM] grammasheri: So true, Karen
[Jul 3 2013, 12:56 AM] karen: Gets back to question of audience… https://plus.google.com/u/0/104568675700472295751/posts/JPLZp4zRoCW
[Jul 3 2013, 12:56 AM] Paul Oh: @karen – I feel that way, too. I wonder with clmooc how much that’s a function of what we’re sharing with one another, i.e., things we’re making.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:56 AM] indieschoollib: Don’t know if this actually works: http://www.mapmyfollowers.com/
[Jul 3 2013, 12:56 AM] grammasheri: Karen, I met Denise f2f in June πŸ™‚ It was awesome, joyful

[Jul 3 2013, 12:57 AM] karen: soon…
[Jul 3 2013, 12:57 AM] Paul Oh: @Karen and the fact that the makes are personal and often interest-driven
[Jul 3 2013, 12:57 AM] karen: yes, very connective
[Jul 3 2013, 12:57 AM] tellio: @karen @grammasheri In my map I said that the the trip of a 20000 miles begins with a single click. Miles disappear and people rise up to meet us.

[Jul 3 2013, 12:58 AM] karen: nice @tellio

[Jul 3 2013, 12:58 AM] Paul Oh: One thing I’ve noticed about the maps I’ve seen being made and being discussed on the hangout are that they are generally personal and interest-driven
[Jul 3 2013, 12:59 AM] tellio: I looked at a Google Map of your school and environs today @grammasheri
[Jul 3 2013, 12:59 AM] Paul Oh: Versus, say, a Make that’s focused on recreating the AAA Road Atlas.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:59 AM] grammasheri: It looks barren but is beautiful.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:59 AM] Paul Oh: Which to me relates to the power of Connected Learning principles of learning.
[Jul 3 2013, 12:59 AM] karen: yes, very
[Jul 3 2013, 12:59 AM] monk51295: can you pop Joe up to main screen?
[Jul 3 2013, 1:00 AM] tellio: @grammasheri the horizons there are so different than mine in the hills and hollars.
[Jul 3 2013, 1:00 AM] grammasheri: we can’t see it — pop it up please and thanks
[Jul 3 2013, 1:00 AM] karen: Can someone ask Joe to click himself to go full screen?
[Jul 3 2013, 1:00 AM] Paul Oh: particularly “interest-powered” and “peer supported”
[Jul 3 2013, 1:00 AM] tellio: ditto monk51295
[Jul 3 2013, 1:01 AM] grammasheri: @tellio we have sagebrush, shrubb-steppe, wheat, and forest all within 30 min
[Jul 3 2013, 1:01 AM] Paul Oh: @grammasheri – so beautiful
[Jul 3 2013, 1:01 AM] tellio: @grammasheri I swear I smelled burning sage.

[Jul 3 2013, 1:05 AM] joedillon: Thanks all !
[Jul 3 2013, 1:06 AM] Anna: @paul And for me, interest-driven means connected to my larger systems
[Jul 3 2013, 1:06 AM] Anna: That is, it means that after this chat.
[Jul 3 2013, 1:06 AM] Paul Oh: @Anna Yes, was discussing that idea yesterday.
[Jul 3 2013, 1:07 AM] Paul Oh: interests being socially relevant and socially constructed as well
[Jul 3 2013, 1:07 AM] Anna: yes

[Jul 3 2013, 1:08 AM] joedillon: You can boss me around in G+ but I don’t want to forget to ask.
[Jul 3 2013, 1:09 AM] Anna: So, @joe could you come up with a few questions (in 140 characters) that this chat and the week has brought up for you?
[Jul 3 2013, 1:09 AM] Anna: Elyse is also going to have some questions. I’ll facilitate and ask each of you to introduce one of your questions…rotate like that.
[Jul 3 2013, 1:09 AM] Anna: Sound good?
[Jul 3 2013, 1:09 AM] joedillon: Yep. Perfect.
[Jul 3 2013, 1:10 AM] Anna: If you can also make it to the 10:30 AM/EST chat…that’d be awesome.
[Jul 3 2013, 1:10 AM] joedillon: I’ll do my best on that one.
[Jul 3 2013, 1:10 AM] Anna: Yeah…it’s a bit harder!
[Jul 3 2013, 1:10 AM] joedillon: Great job with this hangout. Thanks.
[Jul 3 2013, 1:10 AM] joedillon: Good night.
[Jul 3 2013, 1:10 AM] Anna: Sorry for dominating…It’s great to have people who are interested in thinking with you!

[Jul 3 2013, 1:32 AM] Patricia Kay Swank: “history” in it?
[Jul 3 2013, 1:33 AM] Patricia Kay Swank: I was looking at where you had mentioned it earlier in the conversation and it isn’t visible.

[Jun 26 2013, 12:09 AM] tellio: obvioiusly, lets all go to the lobby and get ourselves some food
[Jun 26 2013, 12:09 AM] cyndeewillow: lol

[Jun 26 2013, 12:11 AM] dogtrax: Do we have any reservations about hacking toys into something new? (Wondering about that doll planter in G Plus today)
[Jun 26 2013, 12:11 AM] Seecantrill: reservations? would love to hear more why, Kevin.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:11 AM] mtechman: I wouldn’t hack anything belonging to my hoarders, I mean children.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:11 AM] karen: @dogtrax that’s sometimes a problem for me.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:12 AM] Seecantrill: I didn’t hear Chad … can he share again?
[Jun 26 2013, 12:12 AM] karen: I have the same issue w/pruning my tomatoes
[Jun 26 2013, 12:12 AM] grammasheri: I missed Chad’s hack too
[Jun 26 2013, 12:12 AM] grammasheri: no video
[Jun 26 2013, 12:12 AM] mtechman: Nothing wrong w hacking new stuff – just like it’s OK to cut up books etc…
[Jun 26 2013, 12:12 AM] tellio: I would not destroy any of my kids “guys”
[Jun 26 2013, 12:12 AM] karen: we’ll go back to Chad in a minute…
[Jun 26 2013, 12:12 AM] cyndeewillow: it might scar them for life

[Jun 26 2013, 12:14 AM] karen: I love duct tape
[Jun 26 2013, 12:14 AM] Seecantrill: I realize I only have a couple glue guns though.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:14 AM] cyndeewillow: aw I got a black screen now
[Jun 26 2013, 12:14 AM] Seecantrill: duct tape — that’s probably what we need. Maybe some sewing materials? What else?
[Jun 26 2013, 12:14 AM] mtechman: I want Chad to help me with a vague plan I have for Tyvek, lilypad, LEDs and cardboard (goes without saying)…
[Jun 26 2013, 12:15 AM] karen: conductive thread…for etextiles πŸ™‚
[Jun 26 2013, 12:15 AM] mtechman: now I can hear Chad

[Jun 26 2013, 12:15 AM] dogtrax: @christina I don’t know … thinking about whether changing the original toy and its intentions is … good? not the right word. I’m all for it but …
[Jun 26 2013, 12:15 AM] Michael Flinchbaugh: Hacksaw. Drill. Wire cutters.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:16 AM] Seecantrill: interesting questions ..
[Jun 26 2013, 12:16 AM] karen: …or scissors at least πŸ™‚
[Jun 26 2013, 12:16 AM] mtechman: Kevin – only what you and those around you are comfortable with.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:16 AM] tellio: Calder was a ceaseless maker with wire and cutters
[Jun 26 2013, 12:16 AM] dogtrax: What is a toy? Great question underlying our work this week
[Jun 26 2013, 12:16 AM] karen: nail gun πŸ™‚
[Jun 26 2013, 12:16 AM] karen: soldiering iron
[Jun 26 2013, 12:16 AM] karen: (i’m a tool freak)
[Jun 26 2013, 12:16 AM] Seecantrill: nail guns scare me …
[Jun 26 2013, 12:16 AM] tellio: liquid nails are awesome
[Jun 26 2013, 12:16 AM] Rita Sorrentino: Love that question.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:17 AM] tellio: I suggested a game hack today with dice and cards for somebody on the G+
[Jun 26 2013, 12:17 AM] dogtrax: I’m all for hacking, and taking agency of the toy from the company that made it and making it our own.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:17 AM] karen: Me and my nail gun: http://www.flickr.com/photos/karenandbrademerson/4159061242/

[Jun 26 2013, 12:18 AM] JonB: In going through the pics in the G+ community, I am reminded of http://www.the-leaping-lamp.com/images/mutant-toys.jpg
[Jun 26 2013, 12:18 AM] cyndeewillow: I am thinking of hacking the Trump game so that he goes somewhere bad
[Jun 26 2013, 12:18 AM] karen: Anyone make up their own card games?
[Jun 26 2013, 12:18 AM] coordinatortwo: cool..
[Jun 26 2013, 12:18 AM] mtechman: Like the discussion of what it all implies, what it draws from…
[Jun 26 2013, 12:19 AM] dogtrax: Another interesting point that emerged is the connection to childhood — particularly folks who found old toys in the closet (or the toys of their significant others)
[Jun 26 2013, 12:19 AM] Seecantrill: @mtechman is into puppets too!
[Jun 26 2013, 12:19 AM] sglass771: Unlike games I think toys have always worked as springboards to more open-ended imagination and play.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:19 AM] Seecantrill: #puppet hack πŸ™‚
[Jun 26 2013, 12:19 AM] tellio: Hacking allows us to move from consumer to creator
[Jun 26 2013, 12:19 AM] dogtrax: #puppet hack! Yes!
[Jun 26 2013, 12:19 AM] karen: @tellio sometimes w/interim steps which i like
[Jun 26 2013, 12:19 AM] onewheeljoe: Re: the Paul’s question, What is a toy, I think about kids- my own- who own a lot of toys but still prefer to play with a cardboard box.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:20 AM] mtechman: Giant creature puppets from UVA cross-disciplinary art/music/drama project this year – they held off on going animatronic the 1st round.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:20 AM] tellio: What I want to see/hear is the stories that might arise from the hacked toys
[Jun 26 2013, 12:20 AM] karen: Anyone doing cardboard box hacks in #clmooc?
[Jun 26 2013, 12:20 AM] dogtrax: I’ve had my sixth graders hack the game of chess — I gave them a bag of arts and crafts, and they came up with new rules and an entirely new game. They loved it.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:21 AM] mtechman: Chad’s old classroom had a TON of round cardboard pizza bottoms (only the clean ones) for kids to use in impromptu ways.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:21 AM] Michael Flinchbaugh: Sheldon Cooper hacked chess: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0puA6sC0M8
[Jun 26 2013, 12:21 AM] mtechman: I love getting ideas, helping each other. Having the flexibility he’s talking about.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:22 AM] poulingail: Interesting conversation. Is a toy hack always starting with a finished product and then re-tooling it for new purposes?
[Jun 26 2013, 12:22 AM] tellio: I have been using playing card magic as a cognitive ‘in’ in my writing class. Is that a hack?
[Jun 26 2013, 12:22 AM] dogtrax: “riff off each other” is a great way to explain what is unfolding on the MOOC
[Jun 26 2013, 12:22 AM] cyndeewillow: Monopoly yes
[Jun 26 2013, 12:22 AM] mtechman: Karen (guest) – want to talk more re cardboard? mtechman@k12albemarle.org
[Jun 26 2013, 12:22 AM] dogtrax: @poulingail Great question, Gail. I think it can go a few ways — sometimes, it is intentional; sometimes, it is the unexpected.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:22 AM] cyndeewillow: there is a game store in my town that has about 50 versions of Monopoly
[Jun 26 2013, 12:23 AM] Michael Flinchbaugh: That’s Rob sitting behind Stephanie. He made the coolest barking Storm Trooper today.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:23 AM] mtechman: That does make sense.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:23 AM] tellio: A riff in jazz implies a very profound working knowledge of the original melody or song. Are these hacks riffs?
[Jun 26 2013, 12:23 AM] happyinmysoul: I think setting up assignments where students get to “riff off” of each other is valuable. In creative or innovative work environments, that’s what’s happening
[Jun 26 2013, 12:23 AM] karen: I am a fan of Caine’s arcade and the related cardboard challenges
[Jun 26 2013, 12:23 AM] edinnovator: @poulingail I would argue that a toy hack does not have to start with a finished toy. That you can hack materials that are not typically used for toys and then turn them into toys.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:24 AM] poulingail: I see my students creating Legos and then a buddy comes along and the modify. I see that flexible thinking as a hack of sorts – they just work together.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:24 AM] dogtrax: I hope Rob and Stephanie share more from their work today at their WP site. Interesting to see how it all came together (Rob is sharing now)
[Jun 26 2013, 12:24 AM] dogtrax: @happyinmysoul I agree. It’s the environment for creativity.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:25 AM] Rita Sorrentino: @happyinmysoul hacking assignments!
[Jun 26 2013, 12:25 AM] karen: When I was a kid, we made a lot of our own toys…out of boxes, cardboard oatmeal containers, etc.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:25 AM] happyinmysoul: I agree @edinnovator. . . think about kids. they pick up sticks and create (or hack its purpose) and create games or make believe
[Jun 26 2013, 12:25 AM] dogtrax: I think Jeannie’s question of how to bring this kind of fun into the classroom for meaningful learning is a critical one that we need to consider as we move through the MOOC.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:25 AM] grammasheri: Yes @happyinmysoul — that helps kids become collaborative; otherwise they say “He copied me!”
[Jun 26 2013, 12:25 AM] tellio: too much fun is news to me
[Jun 26 2013, 12:26 AM] dogtrax: Barbie Cyborg!
[Jun 26 2013, 12:26 AM] happyinmysoul: @tellio . . . someone said that too me today. I really don’t understand what too much fun is . . . hahaha!
[Jun 26 2013, 12:26 AM] sglass771: @happyinmysoul–I agree. When my students share visual work they create I ask them to brag about their peer’s work and talk about what they want to steal. They love it.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:26 AM] tellio: As the song says, a whole lotta things I never done, I never had too much fun.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:27 AM] cyndeewillow: I have seen My Little Cyborg Ponies made by fans, anime and stuff
[Jun 26 2013, 12:27 AM] happyinmysoul: i love these makes! cyborg barbie – awesome!
[Jun 26 2013, 12:27 AM] mtechman: Conversation yesterday with Brad Jones, Youth Technology Director at Skokie PL re some shifts in kids’ willingness to keep trying – now vs a few years ago (physical computing vs some kinda passive LEGO robotics clubs I’ve seen).
[Jun 26 2013, 12:27 AM] karen: Love it…#toyhack as a prompt
[Jun 26 2013, 12:27 AM] poulingail: @dogtrax we also need to keep the kids at the top of the creativity experience and not the teacher
[Jun 26 2013, 12:27 AM] tellio: Isn’t that just so true, cyborging Barbies can be such a job
[Jun 26 2013, 12:28 AM] mtechman: There’s that connection with the crafters making their own dolls, totems etc
[Jun 26 2013, 12:28 AM] tellio: mtechman–are kids more willing to persevere or less so.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:28 AM] cyndeewillow: I talked to a hacker (he’s whitehat or grayhat or whatever that is, not malicious apparently) who told me that hacking has very little to do with computers at its core
[Jun 26 2013, 12:28 AM] dogtrax: I remember pulling the heads of GI Joe. Now I hear that Barbie got beheaded regularly, too. Must be some rite of passage.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:28 AM] mtechman: more willing, more interested – definitely.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:28 AM] onewheeljoe: She chalked your robot. It was a cool picture in the G+ community.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:29 AM] dogtrax: @cyndeewillow That’s an important point, and sits at the core of this week’s activities.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:29 AM] tellio: Yeah, there was always a destructive element with toys for me and my brothers
[Jun 26 2013, 12:30 AM] mtechman: They all have stories!
[Jun 26 2013, 12:30 AM] cyndeewillow: I told him I was an educational hacker, and he got it
[Jun 26 2013, 12:30 AM] poulingail: Clothes hack!
[Jun 26 2013, 12:30 AM] Rita Sorrentino: Good idea – chalkboard clothes
[Jun 26 2013, 12:30 AM] happyinmysoul: I love this too! chalk toys! I also love how folks are playing with other people – kids, parents, colleagues . . . what? chalkboard clothes! πŸ™‚
[Jun 26 2013, 12:30 AM] mtechman: Love it!
[Jun 26 2013, 12:30 AM] tellio: Yeah, but it would be really easy for some smartie to write “Kick me” on your back
[Jun 26 2013, 12:30 AM] Seecantrill: There is great clothes hacking work — ie. fashion related — happening at the HIVEs right now (NYC and Chicago)
[Jun 26 2013, 12:30 AM] mtechman: Does chalkboard paint work well on Tyvek?! (all roads lead to …)
[Jun 26 2013, 12:31 AM] Seecantrill: I’ll see if I can find some links — the kids are doing such creative things!
[Jun 26 2013, 12:31 AM] poulingail: How about painting household containers and letting the kids create from them.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:31 AM] tellio: Or competitive elements as well, Paul
[Jun 26 2013, 12:31 AM] mtechman: Those T-shirts – My Learning Style is __________. I got one at #sxswedu and it was fun being sarky w it.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:32 AM] thomasjokon: These aren’t hacked toys but they are pretty weird -Store in Chicago- http://www.rotofugi.com/home/
[Jun 26 2013, 12:32 AM] cyndeewillow: that’s a great doll
[Jun 26 2013, 12:32 AM] tellio: I am even more interested in toys you can make from recycleables. I didn’t have a lot of toys as a kid. A refridgerator box was an awesome toy
[Jun 26 2013, 12:33 AM] poulingail: Exactly @tellio
[Jun 26 2013, 12:33 AM] grammasheri: An old coffee can was an awesome toy
[Jun 26 2013, 12:33 AM] mtechman: Some great tweets today coming out of NY conf, hashtag #idc13 (User design for Kids? forgot title)
[Jun 26 2013, 12:33 AM] tellio: Yeah and you know what my kids did with those kits?
[Jun 26 2013, 12:33 AM] Seecantrill: I agree with Joe! Legos used to be really just an open building too
[Jun 26 2013, 12:33 AM] Michael Flinchbaugh: I agree, Steph. Creating today was such a social endeavor, even though we all built individually.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:33 AM] Seecantrill: Hence their ultimately coolness.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:33 AM] Rita Sorrentino: I had tinker toys – no rules
[Jun 26 2013, 12:33 AM] tellio: they dumped them all into the same lego box
[Jun 26 2013, 12:33 AM] grammasheri: Yeah, my kids made the kit; then invented their own with all their other toyes
[Jun 26 2013, 12:33 AM] karen: Rita, I was just thinking about tinker toys. Do kids still play with those?
[Jun 26 2013, 12:34 AM] Seecantrill: I made then into cameras all the time … with little plastic canisters that had paper and water in them.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:34 AM] tellio: baseball card houses
[Jun 26 2013, 12:34 AM] karen: dominoes…
[Jun 26 2013, 12:34 AM] mtechman: Yes! Merchandising! In this corner: Dr. Seuss. IN this corner: Eric Carle. sorry, went off on lib’n rant.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:34 AM] poulingail: Can you see how toys have evolved from something kids created with to toys that have instructions for recreating someone elses work?
[Jun 26 2013, 12:34 AM] tellio: what a hoot, kid!
[Jun 26 2013, 12:34 AM] Seecantrill: yes, this is excellent πŸ™‚
[Jun 26 2013, 12:35 AM] Seecantrill: nicely done!
[Jun 26 2013, 12:35 AM] Seecantrill: I also need to bring paint tomorrow.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:35 AM] mtechman: Very cool!
[Jun 26 2013, 12:35 AM] tellio: the new doctor who. who knew?
[Jun 26 2013, 12:35 AM] poulingail: Video games have a “known” end point and you strive to get there. Game design is the hack when kids take ideas from some games and use them for their own purposes.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:35 AM] onewheeljoe: I agree that the popularity of Minecraft speaks to kids’ desire to create.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:35 AM] Seecantrill: (although paint needs to dry … maybe not. only short workshop.)
[Jun 26 2013, 12:36 AM] tellio: Wheel of Chickens
[Jun 26 2013, 12:36 AM] mtechman: Also connection to learning spaces – lots of tchrs and lib’ns “hacking” their spaces (thank goodness) – way to de-institutionalize
[Jun 26 2013, 12:37 AM] mtechman: Minecraft lunch club in my library – I mostly hung out with the Scratch kids.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:38 AM] tellio: I think Edward Snowden is hiding out in Minecraft
[Jun 26 2013, 12:38 AM] grammasheri: We all want to personalized what we do and where we are
[Jun 26 2013, 12:38 AM] grammasheri: personalize
[Jun 26 2013, 12:38 AM] happyinmysoul: @mtechman, I like the idea of “hacking” spaces. Like @pauloh was talking about . . .it’s a way to increase agency which is the way to make change
[Jun 26 2013, 12:39 AM] karen: collaborative aspect is big
[Jun 26 2013, 12:39 AM] cyndeewillow: hi there
[Jun 26 2013, 12:39 AM] tellio: back atcha you again cyndee
[Jun 26 2013, 12:40 AM] cyndeewillow: omg that’s cyborg doctor who
[Jun 26 2013, 12:40 AM] grammasheri: personalize to de-institutionalize; collaborate to create
[Jun 26 2013, 12:40 AM] mtechman: Here’s an idea I saw on Pinterest today – going to get students to help me make giant cardboard slider for library: http://pinterest.com/pin/186477240793729036/
[Jun 26 2013, 12:40 AM] happyinmysoul: choice!
[Jun 26 2013, 12:40 AM] tellio: Pretty cool mtechman
[Jun 26 2013, 12:41 AM] mtechman: I knew I had to pay attention to Minecraft when I saw a 1st grder’s drawing in the hall.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:41 AM] cyndeewillow: I do have a question for you K-12 teachers…do your administrators wholeheartedly support this creative teaching you do?
[Jun 26 2013, 12:41 AM] cyndeewillow: or do you have to explain and explain
[Jun 26 2013, 12:41 AM] tellio: gr8 q cyndeewillow
[Jun 26 2013, 12:41 AM] karen: Good question…
[Jun 26 2013, 12:41 AM] cyndeewillow: because we see a lot of tired young adults in college….tired of tests
[Jun 26 2013, 12:42 AM] mtechman: My principal is endlessly supportive but faculty wants to keep it at the level of “club” even when I have curricular connections.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:42 AM] tellio: Yes, David Gauntlet
[Jun 26 2013, 12:42 AM] grammasheri: I haven’t had to explain, but with the new teacher eval and focus on precise objectives in common care, I’m worried about what I will NOT be able to do any more; I did start a three-hour genius hour each Friday morning in each class in grades 6 7 8
[Jun 26 2013, 12:43 AM] Michael Flinchbaugh: “Making is about community.”
[Jun 26 2013, 12:43 AM] cyndeewillow: sometimes resistance comes from surprising places…as well as support
[Jun 26 2013, 12:43 AM] tellio: Gauntlet says ‘making is connecting’
[Jun 26 2013, 12:43 AM] coordinatortwo: @cydeewillow, I agree.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:43 AM] sglass771: I love the Gauntlet book–great view of creativity. It’s always personal.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:44 AM] happyinmysoul: We first have to do. I think that’s what’s great about making. You start. Then you go from there.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:44 AM] grammasheri: http://www.makingisconnecting.org/
[Jun 26 2013, 12:44 AM] cyndeewillow: @happyinmysoul I agree
[Jun 26 2013, 12:44 AM] Seecantrill: Gauntlett has some great videos that we should share in the G+ space
[Jun 26 2013, 12:45 AM] Seecantrill: @grammasheri — you want to cross-post there too?!
[Jun 26 2013, 12:45 AM] grammasheri: Ok
[Jun 26 2013, 12:45 AM] tellio: My question is what frameworks make the most of hacking?
[Jun 26 2013, 12:45 AM] mtechman: Breakthrough though: 3rd gr team said they’ll handle all the usual library core lessons (reference, genres, etc) and they want me to support STEAM activities, run blogger cadre, facilitate making…
[Jun 26 2013, 12:46 AM] grammasheri: done in Week 2 — David G link
[Jun 26 2013, 12:46 AM] cyndeewillow: teamwork @mtechman congrats
[Jun 26 2013, 12:46 AM] mtechman: Will this be archived?
[Jun 26 2013, 12:46 AM] karen: Melissa, yes
[Jun 26 2013, 12:46 AM] karen: will be posted on #clmooc site
[Jun 26 2013, 12:47 AM] mtechman: Thanks : )
[Jun 26 2013, 12:47 AM] tellio: Hacking is a stance, literally a place where you stand. And that can be very idiosyncratic.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:48 AM] cyndeewillow: I like that @tellio
[Jun 26 2013, 12:48 AM] tellio: Caine’s Arcade started with a purpose then a hack after
[Jun 26 2013, 12:49 AM] Seecantrill: I love the pushing on assumptions.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:50 AM] mtechman: Yes, but sometimes the “start small” can be giant foam creatures, if you have a focused community : )
[Jun 26 2013, 12:50 AM] tellio: Improvisation is hacking, right. The hacking attitude is already inside us.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:50 AM] onewheeljoe: Developing a habit of mind, or an ethos, with students or colleagues, that rules, norms, traditions can be remixed and tinkered with.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:50 AM] tellio: I think that the ethos is already there in children and we give it up within certain institutions
[Jun 26 2013, 12:51 AM] coordinatortwo: It’s funny @tellio heard of Caine’s Arcare. I know it is around my school but never have gone.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:51 AM] mtechman: OK, Chad – we need to put this all in a new article!!
[Jun 26 2013, 12:51 AM] coordinatortwo: *arcade
[Jun 26 2013, 12:51 AM] tellio: If you are close, he is always putting up new games
[Jun 26 2013, 12:51 AM] tellio: gotta go
[Jun 26 2013, 12:52 AM] tellio: Imean you gotta go if you are that close, Jose
[Jun 26 2013, 12:52 AM] mtechman: Parents will start to advocate – that’s what’s happened with my Scratch kids …. just like with ebook makers in the library – kids go home and are excited and parents want more of that.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:52 AM] grammasheri: I teach reading and writing. What am I doing in a hack mooc?
[Jun 26 2013, 12:52 AM] coordinatortwo: @tellio, will do.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:52 AM] karen: Sheri, hacking books?
[Jun 26 2013, 12:53 AM] tellio: twitter poetry is a hack, Sheri
[Jun 26 2013, 12:53 AM] karen: digital stories
[Jun 26 2013, 12:53 AM] Rita Sorrentino: @grammasheri writing is hacking
[Jun 26 2013, 12:53 AM] sglass771: I have a lot of colleagues who are suspicious of having students create things like mashups. This is not as serious as a literary analysis.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:53 AM] cyndeewillow: @grammasheri, fan fiction is hacking…interpretation and criticism is a kind of hacking.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:53 AM] tellio: found poetry/cut up poems are hacking
[Jun 26 2013, 12:53 AM] mtechman: 3rd grader’s concrete poetry and her work in Scratch – inspired me.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:54 AM] Rita Sorrentino: @tellio yep
[Jun 26 2013, 12:54 AM] Seecantrill: @rita any space to hack at PhilWP’s SI this summer?!
[Jun 26 2013, 12:54 AM] grammasheri: Yes. we do nanowrimo napowrimo and we hack nonfiction into fiction; http://kidblog.org/EaglesWrite/tag/nonfiction-with-story/
[Jun 26 2013, 12:54 AM] tellio: sglass771–to mashup usually requires high level understanding much like a jazz riff requires a profound understanding of the melody that is being riffed
[Jun 26 2013, 12:54 AM] Rita Sorrentino: @seecantrill will look into it
[Jun 26 2013, 12:54 AM] Seecantrill: here’s a great resource by Amy at UPenn about story/book hacking http://digitalis.nwp.org/resource/4633
[Jun 26 2013, 12:55 AM] Seecantrill: Check this out too @rita, http://digitalis.nwp.org/resource/4633
[Jun 26 2013, 12:55 AM] sglass771: tellio–I agree. I have seen students did into a text much more meaningfully when trying to find material for a mash up than when looking for a quote to drop in an essay.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:55 AM] tellio: Hack is one of those words like ‘text’ that allow ELA teachers to expand into the whole world.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:55 AM] mtechman: And art teachers – esp people like @fuglefun and @iansands, @theresamcgee – their students make stuff then hack each other’s stuff, elem and HS…
[Jun 26 2013, 12:55 AM] Rita Sorrentino: @seecantrill thanks. great resource
[Jun 26 2013, 12:55 AM] sglass771: dig into a text
[Jun 26 2013, 12:56 AM] mtechman: Pam Moran was quoting the College Board re better writing scores from students who blog.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:58 AM] cyndeewillow: I would like to see that statistic, @mtechman
[Jun 26 2013, 12:58 AM] mtechman: Hard for admin to be too rigid in the face of parents who enjoy their children’s delight.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:58 AM] cyndeewillow: might be useful
[Jun 26 2013, 12:58 AM] happyinmysoul: hacking as customizing, personalizing, being responsive . . . collaborating
[Jun 26 2013, 12:58 AM] mtechman: ask Pam : ) She’ll find it for you: @pammoran.
[Jun 26 2013, 12:59 AM] Seecantrill: Yes, really interested in this hacking curriculum that teachers always do …
[Jun 26 2013, 12:59 AM] Rita Sorrentino: Hacking as differentiation
[Jun 26 2013, 12:59 AM] Seecantrill: … I think this is really important to name and celebrate.
[Jun 26 2013, 1:00 AM] Seecantrill: Yay! Love pop-ups.
[Jun 26 2013, 1:00 AM] mtechman: Me too!! great stuff : )
[Jun 26 2013, 1:00 AM] Seecantrill: brilliant.
[Jun 26 2013, 1:00 AM] tellio: tooo modest Karen
[Jun 26 2013, 1:00 AM] mtechman: Must say, though, very jealous of Karen’s hinting at low-clutter house.
[Jun 26 2013, 1:01 AM] happyinmysoul: yay for pop-up cards . . . I love all these!
[Jun 26 2013, 1:01 AM] onewheeljoe: I have a cluttered house with many toys. I’m a little jealous of Karen’s toy-free house.
[Jun 26 2013, 1:01 AM] mtechman: Fail! Fix! Repeat!
[Jun 26 2013, 1:01 AM] sglass771: Kind of a riff on treated texts–like Humument, but popup form.
[Jun 26 2013, 1:02 AM] tellio: I love to think of Karen as taking a bit of repertoire and using it elsewhere.
[Jun 26 2013, 1:02 AM] sglass771: Graphic arts and using found material–Austin Kleon is a good model of this. My students got into doing newspaper black out.
[Jun 26 2013, 1:03 AM] tellio: Copying used to be one of the ‘hacks’ for learning
[Jun 26 2013, 1:03 AM] mtechman: I invited myself to event at Mech Engineering Sept at UVA – they had invited Gifted Resource tchrs and NO art tchrs. Speaker was author of Pocket Paper Engineer (Carol BArton) – lovely person, runs fun events in Baltimore/DC area.
[Jun 26 2013, 1:04 AM] karen: Thanks for all the supportive comments everyone.
[Jun 26 2013, 1:04 AM] tellio: Oh, there will be chaos. Cool.
[Jun 26 2013, 1:05 AM] karen: hot glue guns…another essential tool
[Jun 26 2013, 1:05 AM] sglass771: Hacked newspapers:http://austinkleon.com/blog/
[Jun 26 2013, 1:05 AM] janisselbyjones: Trying to understand what it means to hack. For example, a hack writer is someone who is paid to write articles or books quickly without considering quality. Where does quality fit in with what we are doing?
[Jun 26 2013, 1:06 AM] mtechman: groany
[Jun 26 2013, 1:06 AM] mtechman: Can you work a velociraptor into that?
[Jun 26 2013, 1:07 AM] mtechman: Thanks so much, all of you. Really enjoyed this.
[Jun 26 2013, 1:07 AM] mtechman: Chad is very Skype-able ; )
[Jun 26 2013, 1:07 AM] karen: Me too. Thanks everyone.
[Jun 26 2013, 1:07 AM] onewheeljoe: I’m a Velociraptor, not a Brony!
[Jun 26 2013, 1:07 AM] Seecantrill: This has been awesome you all!
[Jun 26 2013, 1:08 AM] mtechman: thumbs up!
[Jun 26 2013, 1:08 AM] grammasheri: very fun. Thanks
[Jun 26 2013, 1:08 AM] tellio: night all.
[Jun 26 2013, 1:08 AM] sglass771: janisselbyjones–good question. I think the quality has to do with the personal meaning derived from the action. Like amateur creativity online. It’s not about a “professional” end product, but about experimenting and taking risks.
[Jun 26 2013, 1:08 AM] coordinatortwo: thanks everyone.. @tellio I signed up for the cardboard challenge coming up in October
[Jun 26 2013, 1:08 AM] mtechman: Try! hack! glue! fail!fix! and get a velociraptor.
[Jun 26 2013, 1:08 AM] grammasheri: the revise makes the quality
[Jun 26 2013, 1:08 AM] edinnovator: Good night, everyone!
[Jun 26 2013, 1:08 AM] janisselbyjones: And about not being afraid to create something new!
[Jun 26 2013, 1:09 AM] edinnovator: Thanks for the great conversation!
[Jun 26 2013, 1:09 AM] Rita Sorrentino: Bye for now
[Jun 26 2013, 1:09 AM] cyndeewillow: Hacking seems like a form of practice rather than product.
[Jun 26 2013, 1:09 AM] happyinmysoul: Good night!
[Jun 26 2013, 1:09 AM] sglass771: Absolutely. Great final thought. Good night.
[Jun 26 2013, 1:09 AM] cyndeewillow: goodnight!
[Jun 26 2013, 1:09 AM] coordinatortwo: see ya
