@RentonL I am here #globalclassroom chat, Sway Grantham, uk, year 5
RentonL
18:04
@MauiMickey Ugh - I HATE when that happens - but - tweetdeck seems a little slow today - love it, though! #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:04
@RentonL I can't wait to start blogging with my K's...but that will have to wait until Feb. #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:04
@MauiMickey Are you doing any blogging with your Ks? Any global projects? #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:05
@SwayGrantham Hi Sway! Welcome to #globalclassroom chat :)
SwayGrantham
18:05
@RentonL A1: how about projects such as etwinning or Skype classroom project @SkypeClassroom #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:05
A1 I think scaffolding looks quite different at different ages and depends on you project as well. #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:06
@RentonL Yes! @tashacowdy and I were partnered in K Around the World last year, & this year @jasongraham99 is joining us. #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:06
@SwayGrantham Woo HOO! Glad you made it safely to the relatives and back onto your computer!!! #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:06
@MauiMickey Why February? #globalclassroom

18:06
@MauiMickey @rentonl I am currently embarking upon whole school blogging.. A big mission #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:07
@RentonL K's aren't ready to blog earlier...too difficult to scaffold blog use AND writing support. #globalclassroom
poundmaker56
18:07
A1 Definitely getting involved with others online thru Skype, Twitter, Global Read Aloud project #glread12, Edmodo, etc. #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:07
@SwayGrantham @rentonl What do you mean by whole school blogging? #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:08
@SwayGrantham @SkypeClassroom Skype is such a natural & powerful way of extending a global connection beyond the classroom! #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:08
@RentonL What kind of global projects are you involved in? #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:08
@MauiMickey @tashacowdy @jasongraham99 Fantastic! Can you tell us a bit about it? #globalclassroom
SwayGrantham
18:08
@MauiMickey @rentonl trying to get every class throughout the school blogging rather than just mine :) #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:09
@SwayGrantham @MauiMickey A whole school blogging project sounds goosebumpy! What's the focus? #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:10
@MauiMickey Can you scaffold it so that it's more teacher "led" in the early stages to begin earlier - gradual release? #globalclassroom :)
RentonL
18:10
@SwayGrantham @MauiMickey That is MAGIC ... I'm the only one in my school ... tons of work ... hard to get buy-in! #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:10
@RentonL K Around the World pairs classes fr different locations to tweet and connect w/ each other. http://t.co/yWqBtLKn #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:11
@SwayGrantham @rentonl I LOVE that! Mine is the only class blogging so far, too. #globalclassroom
SwayGrantham
18:11
@MauiMickey currently an etwinning proj, 8 countries across Europe sharing what we do in school, hobbies, favourites etc. #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:11
@MauiMickey Our Gr 3s skype with an NGO - not a pre-designed project - happened naturally out of SS curric - with Peru. #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:12
@RentonL It will depend on the developmental stages of my K's. I'm going to try earlier! #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:12
@MauiMickey There are SO many amazing projects to join if people don't know where to begin - I just never have enough time! #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:12
@SwayGrantham Very cool! That is similar to K Around the World. #globalclassroom
SwayGrantham
18:12
@RentonL @mauimickey we're trying for fairness of opportunity, trying to help all chn get involved #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:12
@MauiMickey What are your system "permissions" like for tweeting and blogging? #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:13
@RentonL I am also involved with @learningmurd 's #skypeplay project. #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:13
@RentonL Do you mean parent permission, or district tech permission? #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:13
@MauiMickey @SwayGrantham We only began blogging about our journey last year - so powerful - can't imagine teaching w/o. #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:14
@RentonL @SwayGrantham Do you use http://t.co/eh6S8lEG for your student blogs? I think it's fantastic! #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:14
@SwayGrantham @mauimickey I LOVE that - such POWERFUL learning through these global connections. #globalclassroom

RT @RentonL: @SwayGrantham @mauimickey I LOVE that - such POWERFUL learning through these global connections. #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:15
@MauiMickey I hear you - each group is different. Even w my 3s - it was HIGHLY scaffolded - lots of modelling then release. #globalclassroom
SwayGrantham
18:15
@RentonL @mauimickey yeah me too I started in feb last year. Trying to get it ingrained in a new class ATM #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:15
Q2 Is there a "progression" of global collaboration? #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:16
@MauiMickey @SwayGrantham No - I pilotted a wordpress through my system - love it TOO. #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:16
@MauiMickey District. #globalclassroom
SwayGrantham
18:16
@MauiMickey we have a Wordpress one for each year group http://t.co/OzU5VmkR last year http://t.co/xrslPWN3 this year #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:16
A2 We start with exchanging drawings of each other, tweet together, then send snail mail (I.e. Christmas cards etc.) #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:16
@MauiMickey @SwayGrantham My students don't individually blog either - they contribute to group posts. #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:17
@SwayGrantham @MauiMickey LOVE that - can't wait to check it out. Ours is: http://t.co/aWt1vVGp #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:17
@RentonL No direction from district. The superintendents and other board members came to see what I was doing last year. #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:18
Q2. Is there a “progression” of global collaboration? #globalclassroom
SwayGrantham
18:18
@MauiMickey A2: I think the written styles such as blogging/twitter come before those such as voice/video #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:19
I found it depends on the age of Ss involved - lots of modelling, working together, eatching citizenship, good commenting #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:19
@RentonL @SwayGrantham Oh! Ok...I have a class website ( I write ... http://t.co/50OGWyAj ). #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:19
@RentonL @SwayGrantham And all of my students will have their own blogs on http://t.co/k2Gw3NLR when they are ready. #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:19
@MauiMickey Bet they LOVED it! We have huge "permissions" - but that's a GOOD thing since it's global exposure. #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:20
@MauiMickey Would LOVE to have a class twitter account - powerful learning through connections there ... not yet, tho #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:21
@MauiMickey @SwayGrantham That is powerful - our project is very focused - building a library in Peru - lots of skyping. #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:21
@RentonL My class twitter account is where my #globalclassroom connections started. Everything grew from there. We are @KinderPals
SwayGrantham
18:21
@MauiMickey @rentonl all chn have access to out blogs and can post independently but it's then moderated #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:21
@MauiMickey @SwayGrantham That would definitely call for a great deal of scaffolding. How do you begin the "training"? #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:22
@MauiMickey @KinderPals Such a GREAT community to learn from! I learn SO much from these #globalclassroom chats - AND archives!
MauiMickey
18:23
@RentonL @SwayGrantham We start by writing everything by hand on a print-out of Kidblog web page. #globalclassroom #lookslikecomouterscreen
RentonL
18:23
@MauiMickey @KinderPals Are you able to use any technology you want within your system? #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:23
@RentonL @SwayGrantham Then I show them how to type in the appropriate spots on the SMARTBoard. #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:24
@RentonL No...only what the school district provides, unfortunately. #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:24
@SwayGrantham @MauiMickey The moderating is SO important - both for posting and for commenting. #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:24
MT @RentonL: @MauiMickey Such a GREAT community to learn from! I learn SO much from these #globalclassroom chats - AND archives!

Q3. How does global learning/collaboration differ between younger and older learners? #globalclassroom
gallit_z
18:24
Hi all, noticed you were chatting and thought I would say hi...from Surrey, BC, Canada...started being a #globalclassroom last yr & luv it
MauiMickey
18:25
@RentonL @SwayGrantham Last year it only took one lesson for the kids to get the hang of blogging. Scaffolding after that! #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:25
Yes it is! RT @RentonL: @SwayGrantham @MauiMickey The moderating is SO important - both for posting and for commenting. #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:25
A3 IMO the younger the student the more modelling prior to "release". #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:25
RT @RentonL: Q3. How does global learning/collaboration differ between younger and older learners? #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:26
Exactly. RT @RentonL: A3 IMO the younger the student the more modelling prior to "release". #globalclassroom
SwayGrantham
18:26
@MauiMickey @rentonl yeah it's the scaffolding that takes time, constant reminders #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:26
@MauiMickey Would LOVE to tweet - not approved yet - will have to try to pilot. #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:27
@MauiMickey @SwayGrantham Yes - although each day often provides multiple opportunities for "teachable" moments. #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:27
@RentonL Who is stopping you from tweeting? AO's who are afraid? #globalclassroom
gallit_z
18:28
Yes...need to model proper blog entry! I didn't lst yr & then had to go back...but thats ok...I am a learner too #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:28
@gallit_z Awesome to see you join #globalclassroom today! I LOVE it too!
MauiMickey
18:28
Q4 How do you ensure students have the skills & understanding necessary 2 participate in a global collaboration project? #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:29
@MauiMickey Just not an approved tool at this point - but - cross your fingers for me - I tweeted our class challenge #globalclassroom (1/2)
AnneMidd
18:29
RT @AnneMidd: Hi from Surrey, BC. Saw @gallit_z tweeting here so thought I would join in. #globalclassroom
gallit_z
18:29
A3: I wonder if older and younger sts can do the same things...younger ones just need more hand holding thru it perhaps? #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:29
@gallit_z Your Kidblogs are amazing, Gallit! And you were so helpful in getting mine going. :-) #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:30
@MauiMickey for a rock fossil we were trying to identify - response was AMAZING #globalclassroom - but on my account. Immediate learning.

@MauiMickey thanks :D I love blogging, tweeting and creating ePortfolios w my class!! #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:30
@SwayGrantham @MauiMickey That scaffolding is SO critical, though - the growth in independence & "voice" dev is inspiring. #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:31
@RentonL I hope you get approval soon! Twitter is such a powerful learning tool. #globalclassroom
SwayGrantham
18:31
@RentonL @mauimickey it gets a bit harder for me as I only have my class in the mornings #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:31
Let's skip Q4 - think it's covered! Q5. Which tools do you find most useful for global collaboration? #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:31
Q5 What tools do you find most useful for global collaboration? #globalclassroom

gallit_z
18:34
A5: twitter, @kidblog, @weebly last yr...this yr want to do more skyping like http://t.co/fGvLmXQf and googledocs #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:34
@gallit_z The scaffolding and modeling is what helps students most, I think. Better quality work! #globalclassroom
gallit_z
18:35
@SwayGrantham we follow other classes from @mrszvisclass and see what they are doing/they see what we are doing, etc #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:35
A5 Blogging, of course, has been a FABULOUS way of connecting & learning from a global audience - some readers are AMAZING! #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:36
@SwayGrantham I am involved with a K twitter project, suggest you find other yr 5 teachers and start an online "pen pal". #globalclassroom

SwayGrantham
18:40
@RentonL gdocs can be fab but there s an over 13s age limit which can be tricky #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:40
@RentonL @gallit_z @tashacowdy Tasha even published it in iBooks! #globalclassroom
AnneMidd
18:40
@RentonL Trying to do this at our school. Using school website to have every teacher share learning in their class. #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:40
@gallit_z @MauiMickey @SwayGrantham Also - using twitter as another way of connecting with families would be powerful too! #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:40
@RentonL You should contact @happycampergirl ...she's from Calgary and uses twitter (private school, tho). #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:41
@SwayGrantham Didn't know that ... good to know! #globalclassroom

18:41
@utalaniz Woo hoo! SO powerful with these connections are made! #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:41
Q6 How do you embed global learning in a school's culture? #globalclassroom
AnneMidd
18:41
@SwayGrantham @RentonL Have students sign up with parents so go around the 13 year age. #globalclassroom
SwayGrantham
18:42
@AnneMidd it is hard work, much needed resilience and perseverance #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:43
@SwayGrantham @RentonL I have the gdoc account, so I monitor all that is included. No problem. #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:43
@AnneMidd Yes - love that it makes the learning "transparent" - powerful connections 4 families too. #globalclassroom
gallit_z
18:43
A6: tech cafes at lunch? mini workshops? often people just need help getting started... #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:43
@MauiMickey @SwayGrantham Yes - one smart way around it! #globalclassroom
AnneMidd
18:43
@SwayGrantham Trying to start with those who are the most hesitant as this may help others move forward. #globalclassroom
SwayGrantham
18:44
@AnneMidd @rentonl what if a parent doesn't bother to sign their child up? #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:44
Q7a. Is it important that all students contribute in a project? #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:44
A7 I find some are so shy ... but ... they truly begin to find their voice - sometimes it's how they SHINE! #globalclassroom
AnneMidd
18:44
@SwayGrantham @rentonl @gallit_z is calling all the parents personally. Quite a feat to get them all on board. #globalclassroom

18:45
@gallit_z Good ideas, Gallit. As the only #globalclassroom teacher in my school, I need ideas how to get others involved. #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:45
RT @RentonL: Q7a. Is it important that all students contribute in a project? #globalclassroom
SwayGrantham
18:45
A7 it is important for all students to have the opportunity to contribute but it shouldn't be forced upon them #globalclassroom
AnneMidd
18:46
@RentonL I have found the shy ones are better using tech to share their learning. #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:46
@SwayGrantham @AnneMidd "Buy in" can be a challenge for sure ... sometimes it takes a while to get everyone on board. #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:46
A7a Yes, I think it is important for all to participate. They may choose to participate in different ways, though. #globalclassroom
SwayGrantham
18:46
@AnneMidd @rentonl @gallit_z yeah, we wouldn't get the parent support unfortunately, can't even get all kids on free trips! #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:47
Q7b If so, how do you ensure this? #globalclassroom
gallit_z
18:47
I find that getting to share online often gives the shy sts a voice/they may not cmmnt aloud, but will cmmnt on a blog :) #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:47
@MauiMickey @gallit_z @SwayGrantham I LOVE that parents tweet the students back - SO exciting! #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:47
@AnneMidd Agreed - sometimes large group is tough 4 shy ones - & small group works best - voice heard. #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:48
@RentonL @gallit_z @SwayGrantham It is slowly evolving. More participation at the end of the yr. #globalclassroom
SwayGrantham
18:48
@MauiMickey @gallit_z have you heard of digital leaders? http://t.co/a8sofkwq I'm using them to help staff with problems #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:48
@AnneMidd @SwayGrantham @gallit_z Lots of home communication, encouraging them to comment on blog posts helps too. #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:48
@RentonL @gallit_z @SwayGrantham This year I actually had parents request my class BECAUSE I tweet. #globalclassroom
AnneMidd
18:49
@MauiMickey @RentonL @gallit_z @SwayGrantham Wow - that is amazing. Parents are thrilled with the learning in our classes. #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:49
@SwayGrantham @AnneMidd @gallit_z That is sad - wonder if a "sharing technology" night would help to get them on board? #globalclassroom
gallit_z
18:49
Good luck to all this year...hope to connect with you all soon! Have to run now though...sorry! Thx for the chat #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:49
@SwayGrantham @AnneMidd @gallit_z Is it fear or disinterest? #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:49
@SwayGrantham @gallit_z Very cool project, Sway! #globalclassroom

18:50
@RentonL I exchange comments for house points - relatives commenting is double points #globalclassroom

@RentonL @SwayGrantham @gallit_z For some in Surrey it is a language barrier. High ESL in some pockets. #globalclassroom
MauiMickey
18:51
Q8 What are some key ingredients of successful global collaboration? #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:51
@AnneMidd @MauiMickey @gallit_z @SwayGrantham I agree- scared of "global" aspect at first-when they c the learning=AMAZED! #globalclassroom

@MauiMickey @gallit_z @SwayGrantham I LOVE that they requested you and are inspired by the connections! #globalclassroom
