Carla Arena and Lilian Farag's Chat Log

 

[12:08:06] Lilian Farag Allah says: hello Carla

[12:09:06] Carla Arena de Aquino says: hi, Lilian!

[12:09:27] Lilian Farag Allah says: thanks a million for all the efforts at b4e

[12:10:52] Carla Arena de Aquino says: no problem

[12:11:05] Lilian Farag Allah says: I just wanna say 1 thing

[12:11:55] Lilian Farag Allah says: the many mediums we're using seem to confuse me.. Imean the YG, Wiki, and blog.. Couldn't we just use 1 or 2 of them?

[12:12:53] Carla Arena de Aquino says: I know what you mean, Lilian...

[12:13:09] Carla Arena de Aquino says: Well, the point is that they have different purposes...

[12:14:05] Carla Arena de Aquino says: the Yahoogroups, for example, is just a way to have a single place, an email that people can easily communicate with the rest. Introductions can get a little overwhelming this week, but people will settle down and will interact much more on the blogs...

[12:14:42] Carla Arena de Aquino says: the Wiki is where we keep the syllabus, its our content part. It's where you can retrieve everything even when the session is over...

[12:14:52] Lilian Farag Allah says: I see.. but it's just that I often feel that I"m missing something somewhere

[12:15:00] Carla Arena de Aquino says: and the blog is for you to start blogging from the beginning!

[12:15:25] Carla Arena de Aquino says: I know...we call it FOMS! Fear of Missing Something!

[12:15:37] Lilian Farag Allah says: :)

[12:15:37] Carla Arena de Aquino says: we, the moderators, feel the same! It's a shared feeling.

[12:16:04] Lilian Farag Allah says: good to know am not the only FOMSer

[12:16:04] Carla Arena de Aquino says: I know it can be overwhelming in the beginning, but you'll see how much learning and interaction will happen.

[12:16:11] Carla Arena de Aquino says: We all are!

[12:16:28] Carla Arena de Aquino says: So, where are u? In Egypt?

[12:16:35] Lilian Farag Allah says: yep

[12:16:41] Carla Arena de Aquino says: I read your intro, but I've read tons yesterday...

[12:16:51] Lilian Farag Allah says: am sure u did

[12:16:52] Carla Arena de Aquino says: well, I'm glad at least the country, I know...

[12:17:23] Lilian Farag Allah says: I've noticed that most of the moderators are originally spanish speakers

[12:17:25] Carla Arena de Aquino says: so, have you been around before or is it your first time in an EVO session?

[12:17:40] Carla Arena de Aquino says: I'm a Portuguese speaker!

[12:18:01] Lilian Farag Allah says: Yeah.. I've seen the kisses in Portugese

[12:18:42] Blogging4Educators - Lilian Farag Allah says: I used to join EVO before, but last year I couldn't because I was dead busy designing my MA thesis and doing my practicum

[12:18:57] Carla Arena de Aquino says: oh, so you're a pro!

[12:19:15] Carla Arena de Aquino says: You know the FOMS feeling.

[12:19:28] Carla Arena de Aquino says: Let us know if you have any questions to carry out the tasks.

[12:19:28] Blogging4Educators - Lilian Farag Allah says: definitely

[12:19:35] Blogging4Educators - Lilian Farag Allah says: but I was very excited when I knew we'd do blogging this year

[12:20:32] Carla Arena de Aquino says: We had it last year, too. At that time it was only for beginners. This year, as our moderating group is bigger, we decided to expand it to the real beginners and for the ones who are already blogging, but want to improve their skills.

[12:20:53] Blogging4Educators - Lilian Farag Allah says: am really happy about it..

[12:21:06] Blogging4Educators - Lilian Farag Allah says: looking forward for a great session and learning

[12:21:32] Carla Arena de Aquino says: that's why we'll have two blogs. Last year we only worked with Blogger, so we decided to use Edublogs, too, because some of last year's participants could learn something new.

[12:21:36] Carla Arena de Aquino says: me too!

[12:21:57] Carla Arena de Aquino says: I think we've had a great start already with so many eager participants!

[12:22:05] Blogging4Educators - Lilian Farag Allah says: I think I'll start with this one because I wanna learn more about its use in classes

[12:22:28] Carla Arena de Aquino says: well, I have mixed feelings...That's why I work on both!!!

[12:22:48] Carla Arena de Aquino says: I have wordpress blogs (like edublogs) and a blogger blogs.

[12:22:57] Carla Arena de Aquino says: FOMS, I guess!

[12:23:02] Blogging4Educators - Lilian Farag Allah says: :)

[12:23:17] Blogging4Educators - Lilian Farag Allah says: I think because of FOMS, I'll keep only one

[12:24:45] Carla Arena de Aquino says: that's the idea. You'll see that on week 1 we'll work on blogger, then on week 2 we'll move to edublogs so you make up your mind which one you prefer.

[12:25:04] Blogging4Educators - Lilian Farag Allah says: fair enough

[12:25:27] Blogging4Educators - Lilian Farag Allah says: thank u for your time, Carla..

[12:25:40] Blogging4Educators - Lilian Farag Allah says: I know u must have a million thing 2 take care of

[12:26:40] Carla Arena de Aquino says: thanks for stopping by, Lilian. Let me know if you need any support. We're always around. Sleepless team!

[12:27:14] Carla Arena de Aquino says: Would you mind if I put our chat log on our wiki? Maybe somebody has the same question, and they will see what we discussed.

[12:27:21] Blogging4Educators - Lilian Farag Allah says: be my guest

[12:27:58] Blogging4Educators - Lilian Farag Allah says: Have a nice blogging

[12:28:22] Carla Arena de Aquino says: same for you! Thanks.

[12:28:34] Blogging4Educators - Lilian Farag Allah says: bye

Carla Arena and Michael Shade's Chat Log

 

Topics:

  • Michael not wanting to miss a thing in our session
  • Brazilian Music
  • Last.fm widget for blogs
  • Soccer!

 

 

Carla - Michael here from Blog4Ed - is this a group session or are you acting as help-desk?

[12:23:40] Carla Arena de Aquino says: as a help desk!

[12:23:50] Carla Arena de Aquino says: if I can be of any help to you...

[12:24:35] Michael Shade says: OK - nothing at the moment - just wanted to be sure I wasn't missing anything!

[12:25:07] Carla Arena de Aquino says: I was just talking about that with another participant...FOMS!

[12:25:17] Carla Arena de Aquino says: Fear of Missing Something!

[12:25:51] Carla Arena de Aquino says: I was about to reply to you about Brazilian Music. When I have the chance, I'll show you my place that I keep my best songs...

[12:25:59] Carla Arena de Aquino says: it's a widget for blogs. Fun.

[12:26:08] Michael Shade says: Not fear - just inquisitive!

[12:28:10] Carla Arena de Aquino says: I know, Michael. We'll have an online gathering this Thursday. It's already at our live session's page http://blogging4educators.pbwiki.com/livesessions

[12:28:52] Michael Shade says: I need to put a few more CDs into my iTunes, & then I'll get a Brazil station on Last.fm . . .

[12:29:38] Carla Arena de Aquino says: last.fm is great, isn't it? Look for Sérgio Mendes' Timeless. Fun beats and mixes.

[12:30:08] Carla Arena de Aquino says: Who are the Brazilian soccer players playing for arsenal?

[12:32:48] Michael Shade says: At the moment Gilberto (Silva), the captain, and Denilson, the U19 captain. We also had Silvinho & Edu who both moved to Spanish clubs, and have Eduardo (da Silva) who now plays for Croatia - he's our Crozilian!

[12:33:50] Carla Arena de Aquino says: Nice! Gilberto Silva and Denilsong were in the Brazilian team. Crozilian! I like the mix.

[12:36:55] Michael Shade says: Denilson hasn't played for the seleccao(?) yet - he's only 19; GS is current Brazil captain but is finding it hard to get into the Arsenal team at the moment - he was on the substitutes' bench on Saturday.

[12:37:19] Carla Arena de Aquino says: oh, so it's another Denilson who was in our team.

[12:37:51] Carla Arena de Aquino says: I'll have to be more informed, then. I'll ask my husband for updates!

[12:44:35] Carla Arena de Aquino says: Is it OK if I post our chat log to the wiki page, Michael?

[12:54:19] Michael Shade says: Fine!

[12:56:01] Carla Arena de Aquino says: great. Look, we're around if you need any help with the tasks or want to a bit beyond (if it's possible!!!). There are fantastic resources at our pageflakes: http://www.pageflakes.com/Blogging4Educators I call it our treasure trunk!

[12:58:09] Michael Shade says: Yes - Pageflakes is next on my list. I'm also trying to keep up with the Social Media workshop, and a Google Earth one at KnowSchool. And Arsenal TV goes on air in 2 minutes . . .

[12:58:43] Carla Arena de Aquino says: I know what you mean! Go for the soccer game! Enjoy the sessions.

[12:58:48] Carla Arena de Aquino says: See you around!
