9:45 matthewkr: where is the research on wikipedia being a more reliable source than print?
9:45 bethanyvsmith: Nature did the most definitive study between Britaanica & Wikipedia
9:45 jelkimantis: I don't remember, but I've seen it.
9:46 jelkimantis: It's pretty old now, If I remember correctly.  It was before Britannica allowed user created content.

9:49 haspires: An FI team has defined "a new learning ecology" for 1:1 envrionments.
jelkimantis wonders if the modality is different or new enough to continue calling this "new"...
9:50 bethanyvsmith: I like the term "mulit-modal"
9:51 lisahervey: picture books are multimodal
9:52 lisahervey: Moje from UofM says that they are not "new" literacies but rather our attention to them is new.
9:53 bethanyvsmith: You have to change the way you teach
9:53 bethanyvsmith: and that scares people I think
9:53 matthewkr: you have to change the way you approach knowledge/content
9:53 bethanyvsmith: this is where PBL & Inquiry really come into play
9:54 haspires: Project Based Learning rocks!
9:54 jelkimantis: Lisa -- TPACK!
9:54 sbkellogg: So where does C & I fit into to helping teachers implement PBL and transforming there learning in a school culture that makes change difficult.
9:55 sbkellogg: oops- their and ? sorry about that.
9:55 bethanyvsmith: it is a hard balance to teach both what we want schools to be and the reality of what schools are
9:56 jelkimantis: WOW!
9:56 bethanyvsmith: our pre-service teachers need to experience PBL as our students in order to be able to teach it as well
9:56 jelkimantis: lol.
9:56 sbkellogg: Standards are great, but what about the means (curriculum) to implement them? 
9:56 jelkimantis: Presentation Zen.
9:57 bethanyvsmith: @Jon now u didn't :)
9:57 lisahervey: AMEN!
9:57 bethanyvsmith: Amen!!!!
9:58 bethanyvsmith: Lets have Pecha Kucha nights in our classroom
9:58 bethanyvsmith: Richard Mayer talks about the negation of learning when you read PP
9:58 bethanyvsmith: I think Collaboration is the key to all these 21st Cent Skills

9:59 jelkimantis: GPLv3!
9:59 sbkellogg: Five Rules for Better PowerPoints: http://michaelhyatt.com/2007/01/five-rules-for-better-presentations.html

10:02 bethanyvsmith: is flash going away?
10:03 sbkellogg: Not for a long time.
10:03 sbkellogg: HTML5 might replace flash for video, but not rich websites for a while
10:03 jelkimantis: flash is blocked from iPad completely.
10:03 bethanyvsmith: @ Jon I doubt flash will ever be on ipad
10:04 bethanyvsmith: html5 will give flash a run for its money
10:04 jelkimantis: @bethany - there is a long conversation about that...
10:04 matthewkr: and cloud computing...
10:04 bethanyvsmith: but flash is not accessible
10:04 bethanyvsmith: but we do rely a good deal on flash apps in our Web 2.0 tools
10:05 lisahervey: Not to mention that Firefox best supports many Web-based educational tools.
