Thanks Anne
Just shows you how excited I am with this site. I have checked it first thing back at school this morning. I attended the session with both you and Jess, but I also went to Jess's session on Monday. I must say I am really inspired by what you do at your school.

Hi Anne,

Since your interested in online conferencing I recommend you take a look at WiZiQ's virtual classroom.

Greetings and nice to "meet" you! We use IP video, as well as iChat & SKYPE. For classroom use- it's primarily IP. We do a great deal of in-district collaborations and professional development using iChat. Looking forward to possibly using the new video chat functions from GoogleTalk.

Hi Anne,
Thanks for your reply.
We mostly use POLYCOM video conference equipment for the video conference. Some times we use skype , when our partne school does not have the Video conference equipment. I resonally used elluminate to attend a few webinars.

Hi Anne,
I'd love that! Thanks for giving me some of your time. I understand about marking etc. at the moment, it's that time of year once again :)

Hi Anne,
Thank you for the welcome. It's good to see how many Australian teachers are on here.
I'd love to know more about what you're doing in the classroom. I'm spending a lot of time showing teachers how to podcast and make movies. Helping them come up with ideas for how to integrate this into the classroom.

Hello Anne,
I understand what you are saying. Thanks for your explanation. It makes sense. One more question: what type of webcamera do you use? Can your camera capture the whole gruop of students at a time or only one person who is speaking at the moment? I think it is a great idea to try video conferencing without students at first. I will let you know when I fix all the necessary equipment and bring it all together. One more question: is there such an option in Skype that lets us record the whole video conference and view it later as a video file? I think it would be great for further class discussion and analyses.

Hey, Anne, how about the book set in New Zealand, The Whale Rider, do you know it? I'd like to get my English students in touch with some kiwis via wiki. Any advice?

Hi Anne,

My first VC unit came as a grant with a polycom camera and 32" TVs on stands. The unit was stuck in a closet (unused) for at least 5 years before my time. We took it out, cleaned it up and set it up in a conference room at the Alt. Ed building, but no teacher wanted to load their kids up and bus them over. So it was still unused. So I decided that to make it portable. Basically, I bought a rolling suitcase, cut egg crate foam to fit and protect the camera. The TVs went to different campuses. Now when a teacher wants to do a VC, I show up with my suitcase and cables. The teacher has to provide/checkout the TVs.

Last year the district bought an additional polycom camera off of ebay so we could connect classrooms within the district.

I know tandburg has portable units now but when my district saw the price tag, they freaked...I guess that I will have to continue to be creative.

Thanks for the compliment Anne. I looked up the conference and got some interesting ideas.
