21:02Joe Rodriguez: Yeah.. I tried to keep up a little with Tony Vincent’s Periscope. It was pretty awesome
21:03Joe Rodriguez: I’ll have to go back and slowly go through the twitter hastag
21:03Peggy George: I was one of his notetakers so that kept me really busy.
21:03Joe Rodriguez: thank you so much.. the poster sessions looked pretty amazing
21:04Peggy George: The easiest way to capture highlights is to use the Livebinder that Barbara Tallent and I have been curating.
21:04Dan Bassill: The info on the web site very good. Hope to learn how they are sharing this w the 17 million living in NYC region.
21:04Joe Rodriguez: let us know when the live stream is on.

21:05Peggy George: That’s a huge panel of guests! Fantastic!
21:06Karen Fasimpaur: Cooper Union rocks
21:07Peggy George: so glad Paul asked that question–what does that stand for 🙂
21:07Peggy George: Connected United 4 Change
21:08Joe Rodriguez: Great to to see the CU4C team I met them in Cleveland last week.
21:08Peggy George: are these two groups working together?
21:08Peggy George: Exciting Joe! Why were you in Cleveland?
21:08Joe Rodriguez: The CU4C was a week long project design camp
21:09Peggy George: aha! and you attended that camp? 🙂
21:09Joe Rodriguez: I was there as part of The Global Education network. It was my introduction to the network
21:09Joe Rodriguez: I will be working in one of these schools starting in August
21:09Joe : Hi all. So glad to listen in on this conversation.
21:10Joe Rodriguez: Hey.. welcome
21:13Joe Rodriguez: I saw the video produced as part of the integration initiative.. pretty impresive
21:13Peggy George: That’s terrific Joe!
21:13Joe Rodriguez: Our cities are segregated.
21:13Joe Rodriguez: I do see scanners in South Los Angeles.
21:14Joe Rodriguez: same in Los Angeles.. it is a race issue here too
21:15Joe Rodriguez: Murals are an effective way to communicate big ideas.
21:16Joe Rodriguez: you see them a lot in East Los Angeles in public buildings and schools
21:16Karen Fasimpaur: yes, in all cities I think
21:17Karen Fasimpaur: How’s the “school within a school” thing going in LA, Joe? When I was there, it didn’t seem very successful
21:17Joe Rodriguez: very cool.. are for with social justice themes
21:17Joe Rodriguez: It is still a model that is promoted. A lot are going back to comprehensive high schools
21:18Joe Rodriguez: I am in a site with 6 different authomous schools sharing one site
21:18Karen Fasimpaur: Those big high schools seem disastrous, but the school w/in a school thing didn’t seem like the solution… not sure…
21:19Joe Rodriguez: you are right… smaller is better but separate
21:19Peggy George: Love their vision for this!
21:19Joe Rodriguez: The CU4C team concept was developed as part of the design camp.
21:19Peggy George: very impressive!
21:20Joe Rodriguez: they organized themselves with a teacher led.
21:20Joe Rodriguez: lead
21:20Joe Rodriguez: I wonder how they can incorporate these big ideas into specific local issues?
21:20Joe Rodriguez: like those presented here tonight
21:22Peggy George: do they have a plan for that?
21:23Joe Rodriguez: I saw the video the Algebra Project produced a lot against testing…
21:23Joe Rodriguez: I like that focus on student led.
21:23Dan Bassill: Is there a Google+ group or slack group where these groups could be talking to each other?
21:23Joe Rodriguez: @Peggy I think that is still in the works
21:23Joe Rodriguez: @Dan what are slack groups?
21:24Peggy George: they have a facebook group but I don’t think that will be their primary form of communication
21:24Joe Rodriguez: The Algebra project has it together!
21:24Joe Rodriguez: I saw they invest a lot of money in hiring youth
21:25Peggy George: What kind of funding do they have for this project?
21:27Peggy George: that makes sense to start it and spread it in their own schools first
21:28Karen Fasimpaur: Jose, is this the model your new school is following?
21:28Joe Rodriguez: All these schools are part of
21:28Karen Fasimpaur: ah, thanks
21:29Joe Rodriguez: Yes. It’s the Global Education Network my school is k-5 but at my site there is a sister school 6-12 following the Global Education Competencies
21:30Dan Bassill: Here’s the Slack site I’m part of 3 groups that have some pretty strong conversation going on. It’s by invitation. One is a White House Opportunity Project group.
21:30Joe Rodriguez: There are about 50 schools in the US. in California, Texas, Colorado, Ohio, New York and other
21:30Joe Rodriguez: Thanks Dan
21:31Joe Rodriguez: @Dan I really admire the work you have done in Chicago
21:31Dan Bassill: Thanks Joe. I keep trying to find partners in other cities.
21:31Peggy George: Joe you need to get in the hangout for a future show to share what you’re doing with your school 🙂
21:32Peggy George: Thanks for the Slack site Dan!
21:32Joe Rodriguez: Sure.. I am excited.. I start in August. I do have a project in mind. KidsRadio L.A.
21:33Peggy George: What a perfect project for you Joe!!!!
21:33Joe Rodriguez: Kidcasts.
21:33Joe Rodriguez: I submitted my K12 online conference proposal with that theme
21:34Karen Fasimpaur: Yes, that looked great. Fyi, we’re currently reevaluating the conference format for this year so stay tuned for more updates in a couple weeks.
21:34Dan Bassill: One of the slack groups is the Chicago Hack Night group, with several hundred technologists involved. Recently they started using another site to support group decisions. Here’s the link. Sites like Slack and Loomio might be useful for these students.
21:35Joe Rodriguez: dope it is. 🙂
21:35Peggy George: What about something like Twitcast for connecting and communicating?
21:36Joe Rodriguez: wow.. pretty innovative idea for the app.
21:37Joe Rodriguez: the civil rights movement lives on
21:38Peggy George: what about dotstorming for decisionmaking? I really like it! We used it to select sessions for EdCamp
21:38Joe Rodriguez: the adult as a coach
21:38Peggy George:
21:39Joe Rodriguez: btw..when do you have an edcamp in Arizona. I would love to come over
21:39Dan Bassill: I’ve heard the youth-vs-adult conversation for 40 years. Problems are complex. Youth become adults. We need to finding ways to get people involved when young and keep them involved for a lifetime.
21:39Joe Rodriguez: The feds are listening now. 😀
21:40Joe Rodriguez: I agree Dan. It is a very complex issue we all need each other #bettertogether
21:41Joe Rodriguez: Paul is old like me
21:41Peggy George: Our edcamp in Phoenix (but for around the state) is usually at the end of February on a Saturday
21:42Peggy George: Loomio looks really interesting!
21:43Joe Rodriguez: I’ll try to make it in.
21:44Joe Rodriguez: We had someone come in from Pheonix for our local edcamp here in Los Angeles
21:45Joe Rodriguez:
21:47Joe Rodriguez: block parties are very cool. More than just 4 of July but around social issues
21:47Peggy George: that would be fantastic Joe! Start following our hashtag as the time gets closer (early Feb)
21:47Peggy George: we have block parties regularly in our neighborhood 🙂
21:48Peggy George: we call them “popup parties” and invite everyone in the neighborhood to come
21:48Joe Rodriguez: very cool
21:48Peggy George: always great conversations focusing on things we can do to support each other in the neighborhood
21:48Peggy George: many local issues get addressed this way 🙂
21:49Peggy George: they’re doing some great things with their block parties!
21:49Joe Rodriguez: I agree. A different type of meetup. More organic and local.
21:50Peggy George: I think building those kinds of relationships go a long way in gaining support for projects when you need it
21:51Joe Rodriguez: That tap in the shoulder goes a long way. Like Paul said F2F does a lot also
21:51Peggy George: yes
21:51Peggy George: having trouble understanding her right now
21:51Peggy George: hebh
21:51Peggy George: very muffled and it wasn’t before
21:53Peggy George: how do you sustain go fund me projects?
21:53Peggy George: they are usually fairly short-lived
21:53Peggy George: could you post that link here in the chat?
21:55Peggy George: I found it on their Facebook page
21:55Joe Rodriguez: dinner is calling. chicken tacos 🙂 gotta run folks. Congrats to all the youth groups
21:55Joe Rodriguez: thanks Paul and Karen as well as all those participating here
21:56Karen Fasimpaur: Good to see you. Have a nice night.
21:56Peggy George: bye Joe
21:56Karen Fasimpaur: I like that — food connects
21:56Dan Bassill: bye Joe
21:56Peggy George: love the idea of an International Spaghetti Dinner night 🙂
21:58Karen Fasimpaur: community foundations
21:58Peggy George: they are learning so much as they develop their ideas and plans!
21:58Dan Bassill: I can’t tell you how many grant request I wrote from 1990-2011
21:58Peggy George: very time consuming!!!
21:59Karen Fasimpaur: This is making me think of Harry’s project where youth write grants for their projects
22:01Dan Bassill: If these kids can connect, and organize, they have huge potential.
22:03Peggy George: I agree Dan!
22:04Dan Bassill: Need someone to create a cMOOC that draws similar youth together, with maybe us old folks allowed to share our own experiences
22:04Peggy George: that is awesome that they are making connections for the future right here in ETT!
22:04Peggy George: good idea Dan! 🙂
22:06Karen Fasimpaur: Thanks, everyone. Good night.
22:06Dan Bassill: Thanks for tonight’s session. Good night all.
