When Why
Mar-26-20 Zoom transcript recorded during the Zoom conversation on 03/25/2020

For tonight's TTT conversation, I've invited a team of teachers who have been working with LRNG playlists and Google Classroom for some time now. We invite you to join us tonight, Wednesday, March 25 at 9E/8C/7M/6P

One of the things I've been wondering about recently is how to move some of what we know about playlists from LRNG to Google Classroom.
How we might start building and sharing the work we do with students on Google Classroom?
Tonight's conversation is pretty open. We're looking for strong ideas to support each other and our colleagues who are now teaching online.

21:18:49

From Peggy George : Christina, are you planning to make all of those resources publicly available on your site for Poetry Month? They would be great for so many people!!
21:19:40

From Rich Novack : Sarah Donovan shared her idea for hallway haikus: http://www.ethicalela.com/four-hallway-haiku/?fbclid=IwAR0d_uf1Jtqyq84XURj4pSWcCqIzhD2xS7aEDW70EoQ-D-MY46mK33sB398

21:20:06

21:21:14

21:21:45

21:25:16

From Jeff Dierking : That's 100% me too.
21:25:25

From Jeff Dierking : I run a similar program here in KC, Janet.
21:28:51

From Jeff Dierking : Hi, Peggy
21:28:53

From Christina C. : yay Peggy!
21:28:54

From Jeff Dierking : :)
21:29:01

From josephdillon : Hi Peggy!
21:29:01

From Peggy George : sorry!!! I’m totally with you and getting ready to share a resource :-)
21:30:47

From Peggy George : I don’t have kids to teach or take care of so I’ve started doing a daily Nuzzel newsletter with 10 links every day to help teachers and parents find resources for coping with distance learning, coronavirus, and activities both virtual and those that don’t require tech. All free. :-) https://nuzzel.com/pgeorge
21:31:04

From Peggy George : Hi Joseph! :-)
21:33:03

From Anna Maine : Would people compare playlists to menus or recipes? Are they choosing from a list, or are they following a progression of experiences in a specific order?
21:33:19

From Rich Novack : I like the idea of a badge’s name serving as a unit’s goal.
21:34:13

From Peggy George : that was an awesome description!!!
21:35:42

From Carrie : Anna, those that I have seen and worked with are all designed as a progression of experiences/lessons/activities. Some components can certainly stand alone, though.
21:36:14

From Anna Maine : Awesome. Thank you!
21:39:58

From Peggy George : Anna, there are quite a few videos on TTT where they discussed playlists that you could browse through to see if it helps you get more information about them. https://www.youtube.com/user/paulrallison/search?query=playlists
21:40:13

From Anna Maine : Thank you :)
21:40:56

From Peggy George : love that explanation of badging!!!!
21:41:31

From Peggy George : that is so true Carrie!!
21:42:14

From Jeff Dierking : Anna, I'd think recipe. Ultimately the experiences lead to a constructed end.
21:42:22

From Jeff Dierking : But a set of playlists would be like a menu.
21:42:50

From Anna Maine : That helps. Much appreciated!
21:43:12

From Jeff Dierking : The name "playlist" always gives me trouble because playlists are things where you hit "play" and they just go without any more input.
21:43:22

From Jeff Dierking : At least they are in my music app.
21:43:33

From janetilko : I have dabbled in the playlists last year, going to revisit. The key is to have some videos from me around it to set expectations and support onboarding.
21:44:40

From Jeff Dierking : It has become clear to me that feedback is teaching.
21:45:43

From Rich Novack : The “playlist” metaphor is tricky, because it seems passive. Didactic. Yes. However, I think we can design more playlists where students are helping us lay down tracks, especially at this stage in a year, when they get our classrooms.
21:46:48

From Peggy George : learning playlists shouldn’t be passive though. :-)
21:47:56

From Fred Mindlin : Playspace, a la that funny presentation software I could never learn how to use
21:49:49

From Fred Mindlin : Has anyone used Loom?
21:49:54

From janetilko : Can I have a running header video friend?
21:51:44

From Harry.Brake : That would be amazing to have a playlist where each of these children could tell their story and then post - sounds awesome
21:52:52

From Jeff Dierking : That's cool!@
21:53:07

From Anna Maine : wicked cool
21:53:13

From Peggy George : remember those short videos don’t have to be perfect—just talk to the kids like you do at school!!
21:53:30

From Jeff Dierking : Fred, you have a youtube channel, right?
21:53:40

From Jeff Dierking : You would be a YouTube S.T.A.R.
21:53:53

From Jeff Dierking : I will subscribe to Fred's channel right now.
21:54:05

From Peggy George : yes yes yes!!!
21:54:10

From Jeff Dierking : Channel Fred!
21:55:00

From Jeff Dierking : Goal for the end of this meeting: A snappier name for Fred's YouTube channel!
21:55:24

From Christina C. : Fred’s Mind
21:55:29

From Jeff Dierking : Fred's Stories Strung Together
21:55:39

From Christina C. : alliteration!
21:55:45

From Jeff Dierking : Fred's Finger Tales?
21:55:59

From Jeff Dierking : That doesn't sound right...
21:56:15

From Jeff Dierking : Fred's Yarns!
21:56:20

From Rich Novack : Janet, I was thinking of offering choice for students. Do this, this, or this. But yes, we have to design, create and produce that. There’s a lot of content generation needed.
21:56:34

From Christina C. : Yarns is nice … multiple meanings
21:56:46

From Jeff Dierking : Nailed it.
21:57:37

From Fred Mindlin : I think the place to start will be my String Stories page: https://stringstories.net/
21:57:54

From Peggy George : I love Fred’s Yarns too :-)
21:57:59

From Jeff Dierking : You'd already nailed it...
21:58:27

From Peggy George : awesome Fred!!!!
21:59:01

From Fred Mindlin : Fred’s Yarns…OK, I’m getting used to it. That’s good for the YouTube channel name.
21:59:25

From Jeff Dierking : I don't know...you've already got a pretty strong brand there with string stories.
21:59:59

From Rich Novack : ELATE’s Commission on Climate Change and Environment is going to be Tweeting Poems centered around eco poetic themes. I think we might be broadening how we think about “environments” especially the illness in environments. Do you have any poems with eco themes? health themes? Tweet with #ELATEc3e3 in April.
22:02:16

From Christina C. : supporting the good mess
22:03:28

From Peggy George : loving this sharing! you are all so inspiring!!
22:04:27

From janetilko : I am challenging myself to make videos and screencasts this week… I would love input from you all on how that works for you.
22:05:27

From Anna Maine : Maybe a running Google Doc with a few categories: cool stuff we've done, questions we're encountering around tech skills, and content we're interested in teaching?
22:06:03

From Jeff Dierking : Nuts and bolts question: Can students see these playlists and the examples without logging in?
22:06:52

From Christina C. : They can @jeff.
22:06:52

From Peggy George : I have a very good Scoop.it on screen casting that I created over a couple of years that might have some valuable resources for you. https://www.scoop.it/topic/screencasting-for-online-learning
22:07:14

From Harry.Brake : we started making a literary art magazine, our conference at Columbia was cancelled to present our literary magazine idea for obvious reasons, but maybe with this event occurring, I will be reaching out to youth to get their writings, poetry, photos to capture what is happening now, and it will be great content for a literary art magazine for this year, maybe a playlist centering around this could serve as a "playlist" from authors from everywhere, and then be contributoes to this year'
22:07:21

From Harry.Brake : 's lit mag
22:07:32

From Christina C. : https://www.lrng.org/youth-voices/playlist/argument-is-everywhere
22:07:36

From Carrie : Rich, for what it’s worth, the AP Environmental Science course covers biological human health hazards (coincidentally, that’s what my class was studying when school was cancelled for COVID-19…)
22:07:43

From Christina C. : @jeff can you see that without being logged in?
22:07:44

From Fred Mindlin : Janet, I’d encourage you to check out Loom—it’s like zoom, but mainly for screen sharing — your face appears in a little window in the bottom corner, where you comment on what you’re doing on screen. For screencast videos I think it’s easier than Zoom or anything else I’ve seen
22:07:52

From Jeff Dierking : I think I can.
22:08:15

From Peggy George : This is a great resource for screen casting tips and tools: https://www.schrockguide.net/screencasting.html
22:08:19

From Rich Novack : Thanks Carrie. I’ll heck it out.
22:08:35

From Peggy George : thanks for sharing that playlist Christina!!
22:08:54

From Jeff Dierking : So theoretically I can point kids at the spark inquiry playlist to support putting it in my Google classroom.
22:09:17

From Christina C. : Here is Spark Inquiry playlist: https://www.lrng.org/youth-voices/playlist/spark-inquiry-with-questions-4
22:09:39

From Anna Maine : https://sites.google.com/berkeley.edu/aplitlibrary/home
22:09:52

From Jeff Dierking : I'm going to work on adapting spark inquiry into my google classroom for next week.
22:09:54

From Anna Maine : ^^ site with student videos
22:09:54

From Rich Novack : Google doc is a good idea to put stuff together.
22:11:24

From Peggy George : Loom is a great suggestion Fred!
22:15:41

From Peggy George : Have to leave you but I really appreciate all of the sharing and brainstorming from all of you!!! You are amazing teachers!!! I hope all of you stay well! Thank you!!!
