14:02 Vance: hi marijana in the hangout
14:02 Peggy: Alan is also from AZ :-)
14:03 Peggy: he's always on the cutting edge!
14:04 Peggy: I've been a viewer of pechakucha but never presented--they use that model for Ignite Phoenix
14:04 Peggy: hooray!! a beautiful lady! :-)
14:05 Peggy: is it 20 slides, 5 minutes or does that vary?
14:05 Peggy: yeah! there she is!
14:05 jeff: 20 slides, 20 secs each
14:06 Peggy: aha-thanks Jeff
14:06 Vance: brevity is the soul of all wit
14:06 Peggy: hahahaha
14:06 Peggy: this sounds really tricky to manage...
14:07 Peggy: mountains
14:07 Peggy: seeing it now
14:08 Peggy: hilarious!
14:09 Peggy: this is even funnier with the video lag
14:09 Peggy: hahahaha
14:09 Peggy: terrific job!!!
14:10 Peggy: very cool!!
14:10 Peggy: they weren't random at all--pretty clear sequence :-)
14:10 Peggy: incredible challenge!
14:11 Peggy: can't apologize in the middle--just keep going. Great tip
14:11 Peggy: love that--a guiding prompt really helps to get you started
14:12 Peggy: http://pechaflickrleague.wikispaces.com/
14:13 Peggy: I think it would be a great activity for language learners!!
14:13 Peggy: ds106 radio stream too!! wow!
14:13 Peggy: go Vance!
14:13 lughdanann: space
14:14 Peggy: 7 slides, 15 seconds per slide
14:14 Peggy: cute!
14:14 Peggy: hard to read it but see the cow
14:15 Peggy: slide took too long... tee hee
14:15 Peggy: funny!
14:15 Peggy: what an imagination Vance!
14:15 Peggy: what does this have to do with cows?
14:16 Peggy: clap clap clap Vance!
14:16 Peggy: was there a prompt?
14:16 Peggy: I'm not in the hangout
14:16 Peggy: mechanic key word--right up Vance's alley :-)
14:17 Peggy: is the idea to think "story"?
14:17 Peggy: all right Mari jana
14:17 Peggy: you're very brave Marijana! you'll do fine!
14:18 Peggy: oh oh
14:18 Peggy: hahahaha
14:18 Peggy: this is great fun!
14:19 Peggy: tee hee--red light, green light
14:19 Peggy: well done!!! that was really fun!
14:20 Peggy: nice addition to ask everyone to guess the tag
14:20 jeff: http://pechaflickrleague.wikispaces.com/
14:21 Peggy: I agree that a prompt would probably make it more like a story but Marijana told a fun story!
14:22 Peggy: reincarnation theme...
14:22 Peggy: Jeff you are amazingly creative!
14:23 Peggy: hahahahaha
14:23 Peggy21: Thx Peggy,, love Jeff's improvisation
14:23 Peggy: wjat
14:23 Peggy: what's under those covers??? :-)
14:24 Peggy: too funny!!! awesome job Jeff!
14:24 Peggy: that was a fun prompt
14:24 Peggy21: Bravo Jeff
14:24 Peggy: key word was theater--that went well with reincarnation...
14:25 Peggy21: go, go Benjamin!
14:25 Peggy: what's the theme?
14:25 jeff: stack of postcards
14:26 Peggy: a wringer here! mixed slides make it interesting-from the waterfall to the power buttons to the bridge :-) fun
14:26 Peggy: good guess Jeff
14:26 guest-12: anybody want to suggest a prompt or tag word
14:26 Peggy: terrific!!! very good job!
14:27 Peggy: those were great pictures and gave plenty to work with in the story
14:27 Peggy: what was the tag for the last one?
14:28 Peggy: much better audio
14:28 Peggy: convention/conference that went very wrong :-)
14:28 Peggy: is he sharing the tag word with the presenter?
14:29 Peggy: hahaha Steven Downes is everywhere :-)
14:29 Peggy: I love the round robin story
14:29 Peggy: it's having to go too fast with the stream
14:29 Peggy: that was great Marijana!!!
14:30 Peggy21: thx Peggy :)
14:30 Peggy: love that image--while you sweat people are tweeting about you :-)
14:31 Peggy: I'd like to go to that conference!
14:31 Peggy: looks like a food conference
14:31 Peggy21: come to Google+ Peggy, you have to try this Pecha Flicker
14:32 Peggy: lost her audio--so sorry
14:32 Peggy: she was doing great!!!!
14:32 Peggy: food
14:32 Peggy: sandwich
14:32 Peggy: those were great images!
14:32 Peggy: waiting in line for food is always an issue at any conference!
14:33 Peggy: bouncing screen
14:33 Peggy: yes
14:33 Peggy: it's throbbing in the stream too... :-)
14:33 lughdanann: I think it's fun to guess the tag, too. Student groups could have contests to guess
14:33 Peggy: this is really fun!! and lots of potential for language learners
14:33 Peggy: yes!! loving this!
14:34 lughdanann: you could also give 5 vocab words to integrate
14:34 Peggy: if you're not recording them they would be more brave
14:34 lughdanann: do it with a partenr
14:34 Peggy: you could start with just naming things they see and add the story element later
14:34 lughdanann: they can bail each other out
14:34 Peggy: great idea!
14:34 Vance: yep
14:35 Peggy: anyone can respond and not just one person--like that
14:35 Peggy: can you do it on the spot or do you have to have photos and tags pre-selected and prepared?
14:36 Peggy: love that idea! repeat the same series of slides for different people
14:36 lughdanann: do same pictures come up each time w/ same tag? If so, send half class outside then return and compare smae tag talk w two groups
14:36 lughdanann: I like that--practice transitions
14:36 Peggy: with the tag you probably come up with different photos every time
14:36 Peggy: I do too Lughdanann!
14:37 lughdanann: i see
14:37 Peggy: 12 slides and 20 secs for the round robin?
14:37 lughdanann: fun, fun, fun:)
14:37 Peggy: theme: first job
14:37 lughdanann: even the tag wrds are a way of learning new vocab
14:38 Peggy: hahaha
14:38 lughdanann: they could blog about the tag b4 of after stream of consciouness\
14:38 guest-623: Hi
14:38 Peggy: awesome!!!
14:38 Peggy: Hi Beyza
14:38 Peggy: can he see the photo?
14:39 Peggy: screen is bouncing again Jeff
14:39 guest-623: Hi Peggy
14:39 lughdanann: if tag changes, everyone could do same tag and see what comes up. Give long list of vocab to integrate in teams and cross out words as they are used up. Winner uses all words?
14:39 guest-623: yes the screen is bouncing
14:39 jeff: apologies for the throbbing screen
14:39 jeff: will re-enter after this round
14:39 Peggy: They're doing a shared story, round robin style PechaFlickr
14:39 lughdanann: so many possibilites. Thanks for introducing us to this.
14:39 Peggy: tee hee Vance
14:40 Peggy: the picture always sticks when it's Vance's turn
14:40 Peggy: this is really funnnnn
14:40 Peggy: it's throbbing because of all of the giggling
14:40 guest-623: yes
14:41 Vance: Beyza are you here?
14:41 Peggy21: LOL Peggy
14:41 guest-623: I really dont know what you guys are doin
14:41 guest-623: please do
14:41 lughdanann: put in tag insect world and see what comes up
14:41 Peggy: http://cogdogblog.com/2011/12/18/hanging-out-pechaflickr/ we're doing a variation on this one
14:41 Peggy: harbor--aha!
14:41 Peggy: beautiful pictures though
14:42 lughdanann: students could anonymously write tag and others pick from hat. Keep them involved, find, guess own tag
14:42 Peggy: that would be a great way to get started
14:42 Peggy: solo for 5 slides
14:42 Peggy: I love having them guess the tag
14:42 Peggy: writing a letter to a friend
14:43 Peggy: dear friend...
14:43 lughdanann: s's could write situation, too--put inone hat; tag in the other and mix and match,s ee what funny comes up. Imagine class could be in stitches
14:43 lughdanann: He didn't get to see the modeling
14:44 Peggy: very clever lughdanann!! love that
14:44 lughdanann: so many possibilites:)
14:45 lughdanann: a child! Yay. Is he going to do ti?
14:45 Peggy: it's hard to look at the picture and then come up with a story line but the prompt helps
14:45 Peggy: how cute!!! what a great helper you have there!
14:45 lughdanann: give him prompt animals
14:45 lughdanann: grrr
14:45 lughdanann: :)
14:46 Peggy: what a great story teller!! :-)
14:46 Peggy: very hard to guess this tag!
14:46 lughdanann: yes, for sure!
14:47 Peggy: hahahahaha
14:47 lughdanann: I knew that was coming with animal tag!
14:47 guest-622: grrr-eat story!
14:47 Peggy: can't stop laughing!!
14:47 Peggy: put the filter on the photos if you're doing it with kids
14:47 lughdanann: Reminds me of being on tram in sky gloing down mountian in Switzerland, and seeing cows below...
14:47 Peggy: that's a tough act to follow!
14:48 lughdanann: wacky
14:48 Peggy: what was the tag?
14:48 Peggy: I don't think you would get the same photos with the same tag
14:49 Peggy: kids are much less inhibited than adults :-)
14:49 Peggy: I agree with her!
14:49 lughdanann: Ha! Good one gjouce grrrrr-eat
14:49 Peggy21: bear - as tag
14:49 lughdanann: can you filter?
14:50 Peggy: but there wasn't a bear in the dog photo was there?
14:50 lughdanann: dog named Bear probably
14:50 Peggy: aha! could be
14:50 Peggy: safer to prepare them in advance...
14:51 lughdanann: yes, but takes fun out!
14:51 Peggy: http://pechaflickr.cogdogblog.com/
14:51 Peggy: is the code posted there? not seeing it in this chat room
14:53 Peggy: could you create a list of photos using urls in Diigo and play it as webslides? you can set a timer with webslides
14:53 Peggy: sound might interfere with the story telling
14:53 Peggy: http://pechaflickrleague.wikispaces.com/
14:53 Peggy: Dave Cormier :-)
14:53 Peggy: this is right up his alley
14:54 Peggy: yes even Photopeach
14:54 Peggy: great idea Jeff
14:54 Peggy: this has been so much fun and I think it has great potential in the classroom
14:54 lughdanann: Yes, like daily warm-up--writing, too
14:54 Peggy: tag galaxy
14:55 Peggy: http://taggalaxy.de/
14:56 Peggy: cool iris might be an interesting way to do it with many images on the screen and a person could pick the ones they want to talk about
14:57 Peggy: pollyana :-)
14:57 Peggy: a modern-day pollyana
14:58 Peggy: she's missing something...gaga in style
14:58 Peggy: make it up...
14:58 lughdanann: Tag Galaxy is beautiful I put in tag animals. Any ideas how to use in classrm?
14:58 Peggy: too bad!!! awesome job!!!
14:58 Peggy: that was really fun!!
14:59 Peggy: thanks to all of you for introducing us to PechaFlickr!!! love it!
