[16:33] CoolestBean Brunswick: Tim, anytime you want additional people to help with your students let me know

[16:33] LillyoftheSea Starr: Tim, is there ever a time your students could meeet ours?
[16:33] Singularity Mandelbrot: of course
[16:33] Serena Offcourse: great idea Lily

[16:34] Singularity Mandelbrot: I think I will make that an official time and keep working to get students from other schools on
[16:34] Singularity Mandelbrot: yes. RG is for students
[16:34] CoolestBean Brunswick: BTW they really like the idea of collaborating with others
[16:35] LillyoftheSea Starr: Cool! saw techplex come on, I am going to try to get hm too
[16:35] Singularity Mandelbrot: i expect us to bring the RG sim into focus and have students building something meaningful while having fun there
[16:35] CoolestBean Brunswick: That would be fun!
[16:35] Singularity Mandelbrot: exactly
[16:35] Serena Offcourse: Tim and I went to Story Quest presentation here in SL
[16:35] Singularity Mandelbrot: starting as an afterschool thing would be easy to do
[16:35] Serena Offcourse: it was amazing
[16:35] Singularity Mandelbrot: yes it was!
[16:36] Serena Offcourse: It would be great to have students do something like that
[16:36] Serena Offcourse: tell a story
[16:36] Serena Offcourse: tied to an important issue
[16:36] Serena Offcourse: and build set
[16:36] LillyoftheSea Starr: Yes that's a great way to get them going
[16:36] CoolestBean Brunswick: great idea
[16:36] Singularity Mandelbrot: oh. I am also starting to fill out virtualme.wikispaces.com as a wiki for Maine VW projects.
[16:36] Singularity Mandelbrot: you are all welcome to add and edit it
[16:36] Serena Offcourse: This was about a man who died of AIDS
[16:36] Serena Offcourse: but any story would work
[16:36] LillyoftheSea Starr: SO Reed, maybe we can tie some of your folks in too?
[16:37] Serena Offcourse: maybe environmental
[16:37] CoolestBean Brunswick: Yes
[16:37] Reed Auebauch: perhaps we can
[16:37] Serena Offcourse: Reed when you meet where do you meet?
[16:37] Serena Offcourse: Do you have land?
[16:37] Singularity Mandelbrot: brb logan needs to go to bed
[16:37] Reed Auebauch: meeting is all online
[16:37] CoolestBean Brunswick: It would be amazing to have a collaboration project with different age groups
[16:37] LillyoftheSea Starr: Yes it would
[16:37] Bisto Bock: sorry all. back
[16:38] CoolestBean Brunswick: they all can learn from each other
[16:38] Serena Offcourse: ★★ Welcome Back ★★
[16:38] Serena Offcourse: ::♥¸.•*¨¨*•.¸♥::♥¸.•*¨¨*•.¸♥::
[16:38] Serena Offcourse: Bob
[16:38] CoolestBean Brunswick: just imagine the power of such a think tank
[16:38] Serena Offcourse: It would be so much fun!
[16:38] Reed Auebauch: I have a small prcel at Montlair and a Library in Cybrary City
[16:38] LillyoftheSea Starr: Right, if we could pair them up in teams to do the story
[16:38] Serena Offcourse: Reaction Core told me that under age 13 can go on with adult
[16:38] LillyoftheSea Starr: So maybe 1 kids and 1 adult
[16:38] Serena Offcourse: have you heard that
[16:39] CoolestBean Brunswick: Wow! That would be great
[16:39] CoolestBean Brunswick: Similar to what we have at Yarmouth
[16:39] CoolestBean Brunswick: Clipper friends
[16:40] Serena Offcourse: waht do you mean Cool?
[16:40] CoolestBean Brunswick: But now they can have virtual buddy friends
[16:40] LillyoftheSea Starr: Reverse clipper friends :)
[16:40] Singularity Mandelbrot: RG is 13 and up without adults
[16:40] LillyoftheSea Starr: Kids will help adults, myguess
[16:40] Singularity Mandelbrot: below 13 with adult supervisor is what they say
[16:40] Serena Offcourse: thanks Tim
[16:40] CoolestBean Brunswick: High school students work with lower grade students as clipper friends
[16:41] Singularity Mandelbrot: that is such a cool idea
[16:41] Serena Offcourse: it is such a safe environment
[16:41] Singularity Mandelbrot: a chance to throw all the old models of "school" out the window
[16:41] Serena Offcourse: thanks Tim for setting it up for us
[16:41] Singularity Mandelbrot: collaborate across distance, age, and everything else
[16:41] LillyoftheSea Starr: Let's do it, would be great for all students!
[16:41] Singularity Mandelbrot: no worries.
[16:41] CoolestBean Brunswick: yes, Tim ty for sharing Rg with us
[16:42] Serena Offcourse: When you go on at 2:30 - how long do you stay?
[16:42] CoolestBean Brunswick: They can learn soo much from younger and older students
[16:42] LillyoftheSea Starr: Usually an hour but we could go till 4:00 just depends on my and cool's schedules
[16:42] Singularity Mandelbrot: it would be great if we could brainstorm a purpose of RG sim and have goals for students to work towards
[16:42] Serena Offcourse: Do you think any of your students go on by themselves/
[16:43] CoolestBean Brunswick: Yes, ussually we have to ask them to pack because they do not want to leave
[16:43] Singularity Mandelbrot: :)
[16:43] Serena Offcourse: I would like to see students be part of goal setting
[16:43] Serena Offcourse: brainstorming
[16:43] LillyoftheSea Starr: I don't think they go on by themselves. They really like working together
[16:44] Serena Offcourse: Actually I find it lonely there
[16:44] LillyoftheSea Starr: SO Tim you have 2 more weeks?
[16:44] LillyoftheSea Starr: for class?
[16:44] Serena Offcourse: so I understand
[16:44] CoolestBean Brunswick: It would be amazing if they take ownership of their own projects
[16:44] Singularity Mandelbrot: no, our group finished our time in SL last week
[16:44] LillyoftheSea Starr: DO you think we could pull off setting goals next week?
[16:44] Singularity Mandelbrot: some are still getting on though
[16:45] Singularity Mandelbrot: some would like the chance to meet there with student though. I am sure
[16:45] LillyoftheSea Starr: Will you have a new group?
[16:45] LillyoftheSea Starr: Oh Ok, so we could offer an informal drop by and meet the kids
[16:45] Singularity Mandelbrot: that is what I am thinking
[16:45] Serena Offcourse: and just start discussion
[16:45] Serena Offcourse: what do we want here
[16:45] Singularity Mandelbrot: I think if we leave the structure open on tuesdays it would allow for more school schedules and what not
[16:46] LillyoftheSea Starr: Let's see what happens and then it works, we can think abour=t semester
[16:46] LillyoftheSea Starr: About semester 2
[16:46] Singularity Mandelbrot: yes. I am planning a bigger role of SL for next semester
[16:46] CoolestBean Brunswick: Nice
[16:46] LillyoftheSea Starr: You could even use our kids as teachers
[16:46] LillyoftheSea Starr: if it was appropriate
[16:46] Serena Offcourse: you mean on RG Lily?
[16:47] Singularity Mandelbrot: that would be so awesome
[16:47] CoolestBean Brunswick: @Tim like I said earlier you can use me if you need me in sl
[16:47] LillyoftheSea Starr: Maybe we could push them to esign a lesson and teach it
[16:47] LillyoftheSea Starr: They want to
[16:47] Singularity Mandelbrot: what a great idea
[16:47] Serena Offcourse: I think it is great to design a space that teachs something
[16:47] Serena Offcourse: friendship
[16:47] Serena Offcourse: good sportsmanship
[16:47] Serena Offcourse: kid stuff
[16:48] Serena Offcourse: Hey Tech!
[16:48] LillyoftheSea Starr: HEy TEch
[16:48] Bisto Bock: hi tech
[16:48] Techplex Engineer: Hello Everyone
[16:48] CoolestBean Brunswick: At this time they are using it as a playground for learning and social network
[16:48] LillyoftheSea Starr: We are talking about meeting on Teusdays at 2:30 on reaction Grid
[16:48] CoolestBean Brunswick: Hi Tech
[16:48] CoolestBean Brunswick: Nice to see you
[16:48] Serena Offcourse: which is so valuable Cool!
[16:48] Techplex Engineer: Its been a while
[16:49] LillyoftheSea Starr: Indeed
[16:49] Serena Offcourse: But maybe adding a circle chat before starting
[16:49] Serena Offcourse: would add structure
[16:49] Serena Offcourse: and lead to focus
[16:49] LillyoftheSea Starr: YEs with some focus
[16:49] Serena Offcourse: it is a process
[16:49] CoolestBean Brunswick: I agree social networking and playfull learning is essential
[16:50] Serena Offcourse: but if everyweek we just talked about "where we are going"
[16:50] LillyoftheSea Starr: SO what if we do a bit of a trial in the next couple of Tuesdays
[16:50] Singularity Mandelbrot: a loose direction
[16:50] Serena Offcourse: I agree Tim loose
[16:50] Serena Offcourse: but just start talking about it
[16:51] Singularity Mandelbrot: too much structure would wreck the fun. but it would be nice to have some meaning to the fun and learning
[16:51] Serena Offcourse: I agree
[16:51] LillyoftheSea Starr: Yes they do need a purpose... a bit of one anyway
[16:51] Serena Offcourse: I liked the freedom you gave us as students on BBI
[16:51] Serena Offcourse: and to remember they are not taking a course
[16:51] CoolestBean Brunswick: How about if we pair with the students to create different projects through collaboration
[16:52] Serena Offcourse: but beginning
[16:52] Reed Auebauch: they need a goal..let them find the way
[16:52] LillyoftheSea Starr: Bisto, you still here?
[16:53] LillyoftheSea Starr: What do you think?
[16:53] Singularity Mandelbrot: we could go with the virtual maine thing and showcase our state
[16:53] Serena Offcourse: If we brianstorm and brainstorm I think the interests will emerge
[16:53] Singularity Mandelbrot: that would go a far way and allow a lot of different projects
[16:53] KJ Hax is Online
[16:53] Serena Offcourse: great idea Tim!
[16:53] CoolestBean Brunswick: I like that idea Tim
[16:54] Singularity Mandelbrot: plus I have had some people ask me in RG if that is what we were going to do.
[16:54] LillyoftheSea Starr: Yes Tim! What would be cool would be if we could create something that could be replicated for other schools...
[16:54] Bisto Bock: hey gang... i have to book... crazy at my house tonight. sorry... got sick kid, sick wife. see you all soon
