@jjash what blog platform do you connect to Blogpress?
@besykes you are most welcome :-)
@jimohagan @ I’d argue 1:1 w desktop machines is ubiquitous computing rather than 1:1. Kids taking devices home is essential.
We need 2remember 4a majority of affluent children, US schools DO “a good job” educating them according2 traditional measures #cmtc10
We need to encourage more teachers to share curriculum on the OPEN web, not just behind walled Moodle gardens :-( #cmtc10
Kathlee McClaskey #cmtc10 Every school should have some kind of digital learning device for EVERY student in their tech plan

@baldy7 good to see you in this session! :-)
@jorech I’ve seen some other websites try similar ploys… It sounds great & like a compliment, but their bottom line is free marketing :-(
@jorech I’m interested in the backstory. I suspect guerrilla social media marketing (ploy to get bloggers to link to their commercial site)
@anncarnevale Good to meet you here in person! :-) #cmtc10
@baldy7 you are most welcome! The view last night was spectacular. What a wonderful downtown area this is!
@jorech thanks for the heads up on this - have you seen a post giving background about the sponsoring organization?

@PeterVogel I think the apps have to be MT-ready to do this… basically their screens are frozen until you go back to them.
Yesterday & today I’ve really enjoyed using “The Feed” on#ipadipad for Google Reader consumption http://ow.ly/3g class=”hashtag” rel=”search” href=”http://twitter.com/search?q=%23edapp”>#edappdapp @timlauerauer
@PeterVogel I’ve used iPad multi-tasking for blogging and accessing other apps, like Safari & Flickr

@TheHomeworkDog awesome, I’ll tell her :-)
Oops!!! I was just corrected by Rachel - she is SEVEN now, not six! So for the record, SEVEN year olds love Sticker Shop! http://ow.ly/3gf7v

About to update my #ipad to the latest iOS 4.2 firmware. Backing up in iTunes now. Looking forward to having folders!
@ransomtech I can get automator to run and work fine when I enter text as described here, so that iTunes 10 problem isn’t happening for me
After updating to the latest Hootsuite version, it no longer runs on my iPhone :-( (I’m running iOS 3.13)
@boostteacher thanks, I’ll try it too :-)
@dmantz7 it is interesting. A little long, but good scenarios for kids to consider
@I_teach_ICT I can’t do that anymore. Do you still see that option? I’m wondering if it was removed in a recent OS update?
@donna_shelton I think it is a typo and their middle school was Edison… Not sure tho. Confusing. Thanks for looking…
@ransomtech yes please! Did the latest OS upgrade remove the feature? This would be a great thing for you to blog on :-)

@classroom_tech I’ve seen that option before, but for some reason now I can’t enable it in Preview or TextEdit under services :-(
@willrich45 that’s great news on your MBP! I hope the 5% that wasn’t recovered isn’t vital :-)
@RogerWhaley I thought Ambrosia’s Wiretap was just to record audio on your computer - Do they have a text to speech converter? Have a link?
@ransomtech I’ve seen a demo of limited text doing this in Leopard but not an entire PDF. Do you know of a good tutorial link for that?
@jimohagan ok thanks for that heads up!
@jimohagan I’m not sure - I haven’t used it yet but that’s what it’s supposed to do I think. Have you tried it?
Anyone know of a free tool that will convert PDF text documents into mp3 audio files? (web-based or Mac compatible)

@Allanahk I’m not sure if Santa is “into” Creative Commons publishing and open web sharing, but just in case I threw that promise in there!
@taf1958 it is an absolutely riveting and incredible tale! How wonderful you were able to hear one of the “Horse Soldiers” speak at K-State!
@taf1958 your mention of his talk at KSU was the reason I put the book on my Amazon wish list & bought it in Audible last night. :-)
