Dennis Oliver: Likewise, my friend.
Wesley Fryer: key ideas in 140 characters: I love it
Mbarek: Hello Maru
Wesley Fryer: great reading list here
Mike Marzio: Your webcam is the message
Wesley Fryer: well, youtubers can both narrowcast and broadcast, right? (if their video goes viral)
matt montagne: we're catching the long tail here this morning!!!
Wesley Fryer: yes, this is narrowcasting
Aaron Ball: What was the book he mentioned?
JoseRodriguez: hey wes..
Wesley Fryer: hi Jose!
JoseRodriguez: Free as in "beer"
JoseRodriguez: or is there a catch some where?
Wesley Fryer: free tools, but most with ways to monetize... needed to survive!
Robert Squires: @ Aaron Freidman-The long Tail
dave cormier: oh well... gotta go. wish i could listen to more. nice job alec. as always.
Wesley Fryer: 4000 open access journals!
Nergiz Kern: Bye Dave!
JoseRodriguez: I like the one in the middle...
Maru: Bye Dave
JoseRodriguez: right smack in the middle
Silvia Straka: Do open access journals that are peer reviewed count for tenure, etc.?
Richard Schwier: Many traditional journals moving to open systems. Canadian Journal of Learning & Technology just did last year.
Wesley Fryer: "professors are paid by the public to publish in journals"
JoseRodriguez: darn where is ETT...
JoseRodriguez: I guess we haven't made the list
Robert Squires: Good point
derrallg: @jose just ask someone to peer review
JoseRodriguez: ok derrall. go for it
Silvia Straka: I love zotero.
ccapozzoli: zotero is absolutely incredible
derrallg: I think I have 400 ETT podcast sitting in iTunes
Mike Marzio: A perspective on Academics. excellent.
JoseRodriguez: zotelo.. yep....
Silvia Straka: Foucault on knowledge/power
ccapozzoli: book glutton is another great tool for collab or social reading
Wesley Fryer: I need to get back to using zotero, I just dabbled with a bit but haven't invested in it...
ccapozzoli: it does it all... cites all sites that you use
Wesley Fryer: "diigo commenting on pages like graffitti on your textbook or magazine"
Silvia Straka: Hey, I see myself!
ccapozzoli: love diigo for educators..kids enjoy commenting too
Mike Marzio: I see webheads in this pic
Dennis Grice: Lots of familiar faces.
Maryanne Burgos: There's Carla Arena
Nergiz Kern: I recogize some, too.
Mike Marzio: yup
ccapozzoli: my face isnt up there lol
ccapozzoli: just kidding
Dennis Oliver: And Alan Levine.
Robert Squires: Carla
Richard Schwier: I'd recognize more by their avatars, I think!
Wesley Fryer: "My blog is my hub." an apt metaphor
Silvia Straka: Interdisciplinarity is one of the great things about social media.
Andrew Forgrave: Do one of those pixellated images of yourself made up of pictures of all of your friends ..
ccapozzoli: my wiki and twitter and nings are my hubs...
derrallg: I haven't been keeping up on blogging or 365
Wesley Fryer: http://www.darcynorman.net/
Silvia Straka: My blog is my hub but I've also fallen behind.
Wesley Fryer: "building social capital" via Flickr
Dean Shareski: http://www.flickr.com/groups/366photos/pool/
Wesley Fryer: "the blending of personal and professional worlds"
Richard Schwier: Okay, nudge to catch up... I'm way behind in my posting to 365.
Dean Shareski: it's harder and harder to keep the professional and personal separate
Wesley Fryer: http://blip.fm/
Mary Di Monaco: flikster for commenting on films
Silvia Straka: Yes, Dean.
Rita Zeinstejer: yesm Dean, agree
JoseRodriguez: yeah.. there we go... ETT
Dean Shareski: ....particularly if you want to engage in social learning
Silvia Straka: And PD is more and more free.
Mike Marzio: Given the high speed of delivery, I hope there are no English learners here. Otherwise excellent
Dennis Grice: Spontaneous PD - "Just in time" learning. VERY powerful.
Wesley Fryer: I like that term "spontaneous pd" - it is also "just in time" and "on demand"
Aaron Ball: I love that we can do this!
Wesley Fryer: "out of the control of institutions"
Karen LaBonte: pay-for webinars seem unfair
Joe Virant: "out of control of the Institution"
Richard Schwier: We're out of the control of institutions. True on many levels.
Dean Shareski: A pat on the back from you, a stern look from my wife....when I'm suppposed to be working on the yard....got to go
Wesley Fryer: bye dean!
Silvia Straka: Bye Dean
Maru: Bye Dean!
derrallg: several of us just came from Classroom 2.0, this is why the chasm increases between those that participate and those that don't
Silvia Straka: Yes, derrallg. As a social justice worker, that gap concerns me.
Silvia Straka: On the one hand, it breaks down barriers.
Wesley Fryer: @derrallg yes in some ways the digital knowledge divide is growing rapidly, isn't it?!
Maru: congrats Alec!!
Silvia Straka: On th other hand, is divides by age, SES, etc
anithadeviv: great !!
Dennis Oliver: But I think we can't worry too much about keeping up.
ccapozzoli: the divide is so huge... i feel like i am foreign when i talk to the avg person
matt montagne: many don't want to merge their personal and professional lives...they like to work 8-3.
matt montagne: and that is fine...
Mike Marzio: Great attitude
Robert Squires: can you not over expose information about yourself--security concerns
Wesley Fryer: http://www.openculture.com/2009/05/how_i_sold_my_book_by_giving_it_away....
Silvia Straka: Yes, ccapozzoli. But I've recently learned that many good people are feeling very threatened by the necessity to get more technological or fall behind.
Dennis Grice: Professional Network vs. personal network. Where do you draw the line? For me Twitter is more professional. Facebook more personal.
Nergiz Kern: Matt, I think we have to accept that, too.
Russ Goerend: I'm the same way Dennis
derrallg: @wes it points to the need for working more with people that we are surrounded by, but so much resistance
matt montagne: @nergz, yep, I agree...but....
Russ Goerend: friends since elem. school on Facebook. Not so much on Twitter.
matt montagne: ...sometimes folks in the 8-3 camp judge the folks who are 24/7 and deeply connected...
ccapozzoli: @silvia straka wow thats funny that you said that i just came across the same thing
Wesley Fryer: @derrallg i think it also points out how important it is to broaden the conversations, invite more people in, not keep the room limited, move out into non-digital spaces
Silvia Straka: Robert, had a tweet taken out of context recently (someone googled me) and completed read something different out of it by prospective employer.
Silvia Straka: completely
Bryan Hughes: The McDonalds interactive billboard: http://bit.ly/POj9K
Mbarek: Hi Baelers ,isn't this a good training ?
Mary Di Monaco: certainly mbarek
Maru: yes Mbarek!
Russ Goerend: "control"
L Winebrenner: control
Rob Wall: Gotta be open to teach open.
derrallg: @wes do you have a good blog post on how to use more traditional communication forums, suggestions?
ccapozzoli: just joined a parent group and will now be a school board director in my small rural SD... planning on creating a parent/community network
Wesley Fryer: "the assumptions around student learning" - whoa there are lots of those, aren't there...
Mbarek: sure dear baelers
Richard Schwier: Ethical reasons to use tools that are consistent with our beliefs.
Silvia Straka: Yes, Richard!!
Wesley Fryer: derrallg no but I should write on that-- i hope k12online09 will focus on this goal of expanding the conversations / participants even more than in the past
Rob Wall: Exactly!
Nergiz Kern: Cool!
Maru: social affordances...
Wesley Fryer: tag it!
Dennis Grice: Tag tag Tag
Silvia Straka: It would get tagged.
Lori Abrahams: everyones faces would be tagged
Russ Goerend: connections made
ccapozzoli: its so sad that admin still refuse to use these tools based on misconceptions and ignorance
Wesley Fryer: I LOVE the idea of connecting each face to their story
Russ Goerend: That's a great illustration, Alec
ccapozzoli: wow amazing....
Mary Di Monaco: awsome
Wesley Fryer: "stories which have been lost because affordances have not been made"
Rita Zeinstejer: great pix
Silvia Straka: What a cool history project, to take some of these pictures & research them and connect their stories.
derrallg: and digital footprints
Wesley Fryer: we do have the ability in some cases to breathe new life into stories
Russ Goerend: Great idea, Silvia
Wesley Fryer: the ipod!
Mike Marzio: bulb
ccapozzoli: love the itouch
Karen LaBonte: bulb
Richard Schwier: Lightbulb opened up the night as a social space.
Silvia Straka: I think the bulb
Vance Stevens: light draws sociality
JoseRodriguez: social.. well we kind of need both
Silvia Straka: ipod usually has earplugs
L Winebrenner: there is a light app for that
Wesley Fryer: so bulbs cause us to stay up later and sleep less
matt montagne: books can be isolating too...
ccapozzoli: @wes lol
Vance Stevens: attrracted to it
Wesley Fryer: not sitting on the porch anymore...
Maru: narrowstreaming with ipod
Mike Marzio: in 2009 you are McLuhan's message
Silvia Straka: Matt, we used to read out loud to each other (I still do it with my partner)
derrallg: I hope no one is waiting for it to communicate
Joe Virant: it communicates when the filament dies...
Nergiz Kern: Do you have the link. Youtube is blocked here
JoseRodriguez: it was very cool
Silvia Straka: I'm on my porch now. What's cool is that potentially my neighbour could come over & also watch this prez.
Dennis Oliver: This is wonderful!
Alec Couros: is it working?
Karen LaBonte: LOL
ccapozzoli: this is sooooooooo great
Silvia Straka: no working for me
Alec Couros: thanks
Maryanne Burgos: Yes, it's working!
Nergiz Kern: Can't see
Russ Goerend: I'm not seeing the video
Alec Couros: this is the link if you want to look later - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVbO2q0ZSok
Russ Goerend: The page popped up, but not video.
Jerry Swiatek: I only have blank white screen
grahamstanley: working for me
Rita Zeinstejer: GREAT!
Russ Goerend: Thanks
Nergiz Kern: Thanks!
JoseRodriguez: I am..
Mary Di Monaco: it's working
derrallg: seems to working for some and not for others
Maryanne Burgos: Some of us see the Youtube video
Alec Couros: sorry.
Mike Marzio: twitter.............
Karen LaBonte: lol
Kyle Lichtenwald: got to run folks. Thanks Alec. Heading out camping
Mary Di Monaco: lol
JoseRodriguez: hahahahahahah... very true..
Alec Couros: ok it's over for me
Alec Couros: will move on
Rita Zeinstejer: LOL LOL
derrallg: a classic
Robert Squires: THat's brilliant
Wesley Fryer: very nice!
Dennis Grice: <applause>
Andrew Forgrave: great!
Maryanne Burgos: Ha ha
Dennis Oliver: The medium was definitely the message.
Maru: clever ideas!!
Rita Zeinstejer: clap clap
Mbarek: thanks very nice
Robert Squires: I'd imagine that your enrollment is pretty good
matt montagne: my wife just said, "I would take that course" !!!!
ccapozzoli: will be teaching a grad course for Inst. sys Design for tech in ed. this gives me some great ideas to advertise
Maru: good for her Matt!!
Wesley Fryer: "blog = center of each student's learning universe"
Wesley Fryer: "how do you keep track of distributed conversations?" - that IS a great question
Rob Wall: A Copernican revolution in education.
JoseRodriguez: for literacy week in our school... I had my students share what is tech literacy with the rest of the school
Wesley Fryer: I like "sharing by default"
JoseRodriguez: Literacy goes WAY beyond. books..
Robert Squires: silos of expertise
Rob Wall: We still act like information is scarce.
Wesley Fryer: teacher culture in the past: hoarding - very different worldview
matt montagne: I was just on a conference call yesterday with this virtual school that is starting up...they want to "Copyright" and "own" all content that their teachers create
Wesley Fryer: I definitely agree this worldview difference is KEY. The assumption is NOT to collaborate for many teachers.
matt montagne: ...they don't get it
Joe Virant: @Robert or silos of the opporsite of expertise, unfortunately
matt montagne: I like the potential of Android
derrallg: @rob I wonder if part of that is the incredible amount of work we still have to do to wade through all the noise for usable resources
JoseRodriguez: cool..jail break...
matt montagne: apple iPhone way too proprietary
Russ Goerend: way to go 3G
Wesley Fryer: that is BYOB: bring your own bandwidth!
JoseRodriguez: darn.. he's my hero
Andrew Forgrave: Nice!
Dennis Grice: Wow. Pretty solid connection.
Vance Stevens: mum's teh word
Mike Marzio: Alec - absolutely - we are mute
L Winebrenner: but how do you help others to learn to let go and move forward and adapt to sharing by default
Rob Wall: @derrallg But the filters are already there - each other.
matt montagne: I do worry about new OS battles...this time on phones
JoseRodriguez: I like that
Andrew Forgrave: BYOB ! Like it!
matt montagne: iPhone apps are great, but often they are OS specific...that isn't right
Richard Schwier: Nice tech gymnastics!
Wesley Fryer: so this is the "walled garden" versus "open web" publishing conversation...
Dennis Grice: Everything is Blackboard now.
JoseRodriguez: Could that be the case with ELLUMINATE?
Mike Marzio: American providers suck
JoseRodriguez: just a thought
matt montagne: @Jose...you are right
Rob Wall: I wonder if universities will need to rethink blackboard connection with cutbacks happening?
Silvia Straka: 55 today
Karen LaBonte: Elluminate is fee based, no?
Robert Squires: nice idea
Wesley Fryer: @Karen yes Elluminate is VERY expensive for institutions
Mike Marzio: brill
matt montagne: @Rob...I'm under the impression that Blackboard can be 50-60 K for medium schools annually...
Wesley Fryer: hi @ehelfant
matt montagne: don't know why anyone would pay that kinda $$$$
Karen LaBonte: Schools block web sites & apps that are free. Ironic
JoseRodriguez: actually... I took Alec's tutorial for ustreaming with a mac.. skype conferencing .... and now it's what I do with ETT..
JoseRodriguez: and I kissed SHOUTCAST goodbye
Richard Schwier: Standing by. Not much of an expert... but like having a good time.
Richard Schwier: Great fun in your class
Robert Squires: @Jose is that tutorial available somewhere?
Sheri Edwards: Came in late, sorry. Is there a sharetabs forth this session?
JoseRodriguez: yeah.. it's a blog entry
Maryanne Burgos: Can WiziQ be a good substitute?
Silvia Straka: All this applies to higher ed, too.
JoseRodriguez: in Alec's blog.
JoseRodriguez: I should get it..
Robert Squires: ta
matt montagne: great slide
Dennis Oliver: In my experience, WiZiQ is unstable.
Maryanne Burgos: Too bad.
Rob Wall: Open is not new. Socrates taught in the town square in Athens.
JoseRodriguez: the tools can change... I prefer to focus on the use.
Dennis Oliver: It works well for some, though, Maryanne.
Silvia Straka: Rob, that's always been my vision of university.
derrallg: I feel like I move along the spectrum depending on the grade level I teach
matt montagne: another great slide
JoseRodriguez: they look pretty happy.
Sheri Edwards: intergenerational diversity
derrallg: they are engaged learners
Wesley Fryer: fisheye lenses can be used for great effect at F2F meetups!
Wesley Fryer: (or just good wide angle lenses)
Karen LaBonte: meta phors --- why?
Robert Squires: @MaryAnne WizIQ is not quite robust enough for universities that need to depend on sessions 'working'. Elluminate has issues too, but it's one of the best. The audio/recording is worth the price tag fro big institutions.
Maru: A minority tha will infect the rest with the life learning drive
JoseRodriguez: as matt would say "find the low hanging fruit"
Wesley Fryer: I like those gathered around the campfire on the side of the mountain
matt montagne: yet another great slide...excellent metaphor
Maryanne Burgos: @Robert Thanks for the input.
JoseRodriguez: or vance.. "fish in the pond"
derrallg: @jose I thought that metaphor was buried
Richard Schwier: metaphors are useful... almost always can capture only part of the depth of an idea. But powerful for illustrating key ideas.
Silvia Straka: By unviersity level, students are so used to having "knowledge" given to them, they can get really anxious about this kind of learning.
matt montagne: I wonder if the traditional concept of assessment really needs to be turned on its head going forward
Mike Marzio: assessment aren't even necessary, unless it's local
JoseRodriguez: @derallg not ready to let it go yet.. maybe earthcast10 when it is replaced
Dennis Oliver: I think so, Matt.
matt montagne: I think the only way to assess in a highly customized learning world is via portfolios
Richard Schwier: Agreed, Matt
Silvia Straka: Yes, Matt.
Maru: assessment and evaluation... risky ground for me, rather foster self assesment
derrallg: @matt yes I like that idea better
Karen LaBonte: I admit I don't get SL
Maria Perifanou: Good evening to all of you from Thessaloniki, Greece
Mike Marzio: like yoursef
Wesley Fryer: I think we need better networks for facilitating those expert connections, tho...
Russ Goerend: Same here, Karen
Nergiz Kern: Good evening, Maria
JoseRodriguez: authentic assessment.. as in the learner decides what learning to showcase in thier portfolios.
myrielle badio: i do not know how to us SL
Wesley Fryer: no I think Dean had to step away...
Robert Squires: Lots of good SL sessions as part of WIAOC
Maru: :listenign to Jose
matt montagne: teachers, then, should be evaluated on the kind of real work that their students publish perhaps
Nergiz Kern: It took me longer to get Twitter than to get SL. Now they are both my most important "tools"
JoseRodriguez: mentoring idea is pretty cool
Mike Marzio: at least 1 wh on the list
Wesley Fryer: I have just dabbled in SL but haven't gotten "hooked" there
Karen LaBonte: @Nergiz I just "got" twitter recently
Silvia Straka: Hehe
Russ Goerend: Get caught learning?
matt montagne: makes a strong case for schools with glass walls vs solid walls
Aaron Ball: Thank you for sharing! Bye.
Mbarek: editing Sl is still hardfor me Nergiz
Karen LaBonte: @wes cool K12 conference presentation abt a school district that has its own island on SL
Sheri Edwards: great metaphor matt m
Mike Marzio: speed!
Russ Goerend: is it a metaphor?
matt montagne: classrooms with glass walls are something we should consider in school archittechture
Wesley Fryer: @Karen LaBonte thanks for that reference - I still have not watched that one! I need to.
Karen LaBonte: What about being open about our small children-- is that appropriate?
Sheri Edwards: doesn't need to be metaphor -- let's make it real...
myrielle badio: how do i get started with SL
matt montagne: High Tech High in Sand Diego has glass classroom walls..because they want people to be able to see and share
Russ Goerend: I agree, Sheri
Sheri Edwards: not everyone has access -- or access to access
Mike Marzio: What an incedible guy!
JoseRodriguez: @matt there are classrooms like that.....
Nergiz Kern: myrielle, find mentors
Wesley Fryer: @myrielle badio that is a great question to post in a learning community like http://www.classroom20.com
Silvia Straka: Students who have problems with reading literacy -- I wonder how the push to digital literacy affects them.
matt montagne: @jose...have you been to High Tech High down in San Diego?? Looks really interesting
Mike Marzio: But not able to look down here
matt montagne: http://www.mobilelearninginstitute.org/21stcenturyeducation/films/film-l...
matt montagne: check out that video on hi tech high
matt montagne: incredible
Sheri Edwards: agree -- i was able to participate in 1999 with Gates Teacher Leadership Project -- and I have never stopped...
Maru: @Myrielle please check http://slexperiments.pbworks.com to fing guidance to use SL
Maria Perifanou: Unfortunately i have a bad connection...
derrallg: I need these teahers in my district
myrielle badio: thank you all
Karen LaBonte: Is our sense of mutual transformation a good self-assessment tool for us?
Nergiz Kern: Thanks, Maru!
Mary Di Monaco: lovely
Mike Marzio: is that cool or what?
ccapozzoli: my 6 yr olds....twins love the tech and they are using it to learn, play and connect
matt montagne: wow, fantastic talk !!!!!
Russ Goerend: love the Tagore quote
JoseRodriguez: thanks.. awesome
GeorgeV: Instead of trying to subversively trying to teach online, how can i convince my U to let me do so?
Mike Marzio: You are an extreme livewire Alec !
ccapozzoli: Alec... thanks so much for you expertise and passion... you are an inspiration
Jennifer Jones: The course continues after the class, but how can instructors prepare and acknowledge the learning that happens before the course?
Alec Couros: go ahead, take the mic
Andrew Forgrave: Great !
Robert Squires: great presentation ALec--filled in a few gaps
Mary Di Monaco: inspiring talk
derrallg: Are you planning any follow up with the teachers later on to see how the system changes them?
Dennis Oliver: Yes--thanks, Alec, for an inspiring, thought-provoking session.
Karen LaBonte: Will you be offering another open classroom?
ccapozzoli: PA is doing a wonderful job in mentoring... the CFF grant opened up tech and mentors for about 500 schools
Silvia Straka: Thank you once again, Alec! I've learned so much from you.
matt montagne: this slide brings back BAD memories of my schooling experience...wow
ccapozzoli: each school had an ITS mentor for all teachers...
Russ Goerend: Great session, Alec. Have to log off. Thanks for teh conversation everyone.
Maru: Bye Russ
matt montagne: but how far different is this slide than the experience of many kids today?? Probably not that different
Maryanne Burgos: @Silvia Encouraging digital literacy can be very motivational.
Silvia Straka: that's something that hasn't been much discussed on Twitter is to enhance the quality of your netowrk, not just the size.
ccapozzoli: mentoring/coaching in education is the way to move...there is strong research in it
Maru: to encourage digital literacy is an adventure on itself
Karen LaBonte: @Alec: any plans for another open class?
derrallg: @matt I was the same way, will never teach what I had to tolerate
Silvia Straka: @Maryanne, I was hoping it might work that way.
Wesley Fryer: yes thanks
JoseRodriguez: a bit and a bunch...
ccapozzoli: absolutely the under grad ed inst. are seriously outdated...
Maru: Nice to hear your voice Robert
Rita Zeinstejer: I agree with that, it starts with isnpiring teachers
Silvia Straka: It broadens the dialogue.
Sheri Edwards: i am held back by IT who does not support teachers and their tech knowledge
Vance Stevens: who can model
Maru: model what Vance?
Silvia Straka: Again, boundaries between inside-outside university are dropping rapidly
JoseRodriguez: I like that.. no expectations.. leaves it to the participant.. and instead of going for the minimum.. we can shoot for the stars
Robert Squires: interesting
Silvia Straka: @Alec, that was great, becuase I loved being able to support your students when you asked for it on Twitter. It was a way to give back for what I learned.
matt montagne: How is the learning that is going on in the classroom in this slide better than the multi-dimensional, personalized learning that could be going on in school 2.0??
Sheri Edwards: students need to be able to make their own expectations
Robert Squires: thanks
betterlate than never: I hope someone is doing a back up recording - jose?
Alec Couros: vance?
Silvia Straka: Micro-teaching -- can have depth and make us reflect for hours after.
Alec Couros: then karen ...
ccapozzoli: we have to show them or model that for them... kids still need guidance for creating their own high expectations
Mike Marzio: go vance
Jenna Ream: I love that micro-teaching idea... powerful way to bring teacher and learner to higher levels of thinking about content- brilliant!
JoseRodriguez: I am simulcasting to ustream.. recording on ustream and local back up on audacity
Maru: lost your voice too Vance
Maru: good now
Silvia Straka: I have to find a way to capture my own notes on what I find interesting & want to followup after these open sessions.
Alec Couros: ICT Coordinator and professor
JoseRodriguez: we are posting raw audio... look for link on wiaoc09 wiki
Maryanne Burgos: @Silvia I keep a Word document open to take notes. Woudl that work for you?
Mike Marzio: i had the same question.
matt montagne: Most people are 8-3 teachers...this probably won't change much until our schools are shut down by the swine flu

Silvia Straka: I had to FORCE my sister to go on Twitter and now she is sold on it. It's about getting over the person's fear & resistance.
betterlate than never: and hate that I missed Alec
derrallg: don't use that for a twitter user name
Vance Stevens: yes, I mean how do you inspire a majority of those around you
betterlate than never: ok
Vance Stevens: if that is possible
betterlate than never: not for me where i am
Karen LaBonte: especially if there's a lot of testing
Silvia Straka: @Vance I don't think we can inspire the majority. It's viral.
ccapozzoli: @ vance... build awareness through relevance of tools and content
Andrew Forgrave: Faculty of Education, not "Faculty of High School Teaching," etc.
betterlate than never: need to have admin on your side at k12
ccapozzoli: set the hook and bait.... reel them in...
betterlate than never: but if that school wants you out.....it won't work
Silvia Straka: You can't just go on Twitter for 2 days and hope to benefit. It takes some time to "get it".
derrallg: I think it's convincing some of the teacher for the need for change, they don't understand
Alec Couros: karen?
matt montagne: I hope we start to see more "School withing Schools" develop...the concept of an arm within an organization can innovate without having to deal with systemic constraints makes sense
ccapozzoli: admin yes... they need more vision
Alec Couros: let go of mic
