Vitaut Arabello: Virginia's presentation is submerged, hid under the ground.

Vitaut Arabello: But I can demonstrate it if people are willing to explore.

Vitaut Arabello: Ah, OK.

Mary Harwood: Evening, all.

Vitaut Arabello: While you are presenting, I will mount Virginia's.

Mary Harwood: I think it's going to be a weird night for my avatar.

FrauSchaefer: Sounds good Peggy., thank you

Sandy: I should be wearing white.

Sandy: political statement off topic

JillMCreswell: students are touching the robot

Sandy: students are touching and investigating a robot

JillBohemia: Students look very curious and engaged.

Autumn Maker: students are investigating some sort of robot

Mary Harwood: Is she real?

Vitaut Arabello: students are joyous

Autumn Maker: Their facies are lively and happy

Vitaut Arabello: laughing and smiling

Autumn Maker: faces

chuckjamesdaniel: she looks startled and kids are making fun of her

JillBohemia: The smiles on their faces and because they are touching her.

Sandy: I see excitement and curiosity

Vitaut Arabello: Next question - why they are joyous? Because the robot looks like them.

Autumn Maker: I think they think it's new and foreign

Virginia Petitt: Peggy, I don't have a copy of it--can you send it?

Shafonda: gosh what a deal only 51K per teacher

Mary Harwood: Peggy, I'm still not receiving STELLAR related emails from you. I hope you aren't mad at me!

Vitaut Arabello: I wanted to copy and paste this articles here - alas, it is an image not a text.

Mary Harwood: Of course, I'm teasing.

BethanyCreslane: Technology excites students in developing countries.

Shafonda: technology could save money for educational institiutions

GabeCGHS: Does somebody have their microphone on? I'm hearing lots of interference...

Vitaut Arabello: It reminded me of "One laptop per child" initiative, intended for developing countries.

GabeCGHS: Or is that just me?

Mary Harwood: Might have been me, Gabe. I turned it off

GabeCGHS: Hey I think so, I can hear again thanks

Autumn Maker: She says that they would be non biased

JillBohemia: They wouldn't get sick from all of the germs.

Autumn Maker: save money in the long term

Sandy: easily updated

FrauSchaefer: at first, technology can excite and motivate students

Shafonda: they would turn out kids without emotion possibly which could eliminate drama

Sandy: consistent delivery of information

BethanyCreslane: the curriculum could be taught through a computerized program

MariaCreswell: Would they ever need a sub? I guess maybe if they were having technical problems

JillMCreswell: no need for a sub - they don't get sick, need time off

Vitaut Arabello: will cause a lot of real, organic teachers to lose their jobs :-(

FrauSchaefer: easily updated ;)

Shafonda: so we should get into computer programming

Sandy: not emotionally empathetic to a child's needs

BethanyCreslane: Could not differentiate

Vitaut Arabello: will unpredictably get frozen with unforseen consequences...

JillMCreswell: how would they respond in an emergency?

Sandy: robots would not necessarily be inspiring

Shafonda: real life could throw a wrench in the robots day

Virginia Petitt: How would they respond to all the off-the-wall stuff that happens?

GabeCGHS: Robots like wrenches.

Shafonda: oh Gabe.... what about the wrench of life...

Buhltiful  Brian Vollmer-Buhl: metric or standard?

Sandy: students may need the same information, but what about scaffolding?

Shafonda: my mom was gone partying last night so I couldnt get my permission slip signed

FrauSchaefer: exactly. how does scaffoldng occur for ALL learners

Shafonda: RIGHT Frau S!

Sandy: what about differentiation?

Virginia Petitt: I'm wondering how a robot would motivate students?

Shafonda: put the learning aside (60% of the day's teachings), what about emotional, social, etc

Buhltiful  Brian Vollmer-Buhl: How about classroom management?

Virginia Petitt: I would like to see a robot handle my daughter's 5th period (10th grade) class!

Sandy: May be good for standard's based promotion. the ease of repetition could be benficial

Shafonda: Buhl, a robot could whip out a wrench and throw.  bet they'd listen

Sandy: socket or crescent?

Buhltiful  Brian Vollmer-Buhl: Heck, a robot would have more than a wrench!

GabeCGHS: If you can dodge a wrench you can dodge a lesson.

Shafonda: large plumbing

GabeCGHS: Funny enough it also made children cry while praising them.

Shafonda: I am not sure that is something to boast about?

GabeCGHS: Bad joke, sorry

JillBohemia: Robot as administrator would be interesting?

Shafonda: Buhl does that but he doesnt shower, they cry from the stench

JillMCreswell: is the robot  remote controlled or self directed?


 

 

 

Shafonda: good questin Jill

Sandy: does it display disappointment? That is the one that really gets kids

Autumn Maker: Not sure how long parents would side with robot after they cry!?!

Buhltiful  Brian Vollmer-Buhl: I shower, just don't use soap!

Shafonda: :)

Shafonda: I wonder what kids would say about this article....we may be biased as teachers

MariaCreswell: I would love to give it to my kids to read

MariaCreswell: I think I will :)

MariaCreswell: haha

Shafonda: yes, just ask DeVoss

Sandy: Hey, that's why I live in a mansion and ride in a Limo every day to work

Shafonda: they probably wouldn't even need a prep

Sandy: no prep, just a power break and upload

Shafonda: Ah, Sandy, isn't that a Toyota? I get the mansion part

GabeCGHS: Power break and upload kind of sounds like my actual prep...

Sandy: have a chevy now.

Virginia Petitt: I agree!

Shafonda: oh, is  45 giving a speach about himself. shoot, sorry to miss it.

Shafonda: to start off with this article, for example, would you, the teacher help come up with a claim

Sandy: I might have the class brainstorm possible claims.

Sandy: That would help get kids to begin making claims

Shafonda: A great opportunity for a think pair, share

deborahcreswell: "Your evidence isn't strong enough".  That's something I'm telling my students all the time when I'm grading their essays.

Sandy: I just lost sound

Sandy: back

Shafonda: seeing both sides is powerful to validating your own arguments. "Know the other side!"

Vitaut Arabello: Please remember to visit our website http://www.projectstellar.org/photo-video periodically. We record every SL session, add chat transcript to it and post there. Say, if you suddenly lost sound, you can watch and listen it there.

Sandy: Can we also have the power points posted?

Vitaut Arabello: I will post it, too. Additionally, all the presentations we have ever seen here inworld are in that long gallery to the south from our place.

Sandy: ok,  thanks

Autumn Maker whispers: I've been using those "Crime and Puzzlement" pieces with my middle schoolers and they LOVE arguing their POV of what happened!

Autumn Maker whispers: I've been using those "Crime and Puzzlement" pieces with my middle schoolers and they LOVE arguing their POV of what happened!

Vitaut Arabello: Autumn, how to whisper? I cannot do it.

Autumn Maker: Also been great because analogy of needing to show what your evidence proves via a court and lawyers makes so much sense to them!

Autumn Maker: Oh! I didn't know I was. :0)

Vitaut Arabello: :-)

Mary Harwood: I always do it by accident, Ulad!

Sandy: Prezi is GREAT!

Vitaut Arabello: Oh, yeah. Very effective.

Autumn Maker: Also maybe tips for how to lead them to the best/strongest pieces of evidence?

FrauSchaefer: that would be awesome to see

deborahcreswell: I have to go.  See you next time.

Vitaut Arabello: Good night, Deborah!

Shafonda: adios

Mary Harwood whispers: Whisper

chuckjamesdaniel: Thanks, as always, Peggy.

JillBohemia: Thanks Peggy

DeanCreslane: Good Night All

Autumn Maker: Good night!

JillMCreswell: thank you,  good night

Virginia Petitt whispers: trying out the whisper command...

Virginia Petitt whispers: er

Vitaut Arabello whispers: Trying, too...

Virginia Petitt: How to unwhisper??

Buhltiful  Brian Vollmer-Buhl whispers: Shhhhh
