On Sun Dec 7 Learning2gether is spending time with Ryan Buchanan talking about tablet technology for teachers, in a presentation subtitled:

“Why’s and How’s of My Desire to Get on the Other Side of My Students’ Screens” or “Making Students’ Digital Interface Work: App Flashcards”

Ryan writes: Let’s talk about getting on the important side – the “looked-at” side – of the students’ devices.  I offer suggestions that I act on to make learning more attractive for my Saudi Digital Natives using Quizlet & other great apps.

This is a flipped presentation!

Please preview my Quick Quizlet Prezi below – four short (less than 3 minutes each) YouTubes introducing the app with step-by-step creation & a sample of lesson delivery.

Show Notes:

Ryan had planned a flipped presentation where he presented material he wanted to discuss beforehand and provided the links above. During the conversation, we went (as you would in a truly flipped classroom) into the philosophical issues of digital natives and immigrants and how wrong it is to make them park their networks at the door of the classroom and not bring them in. Thus the conversation went on to the teaching philosophy that would incorporate these networks and accompanying devices into the classroom with the result that we flipped the presentation even further as something we didn’t actually get to but for later, people could look at the following links, shared during the conversation:

On Sunday Nov 30 Learning2gether was privileged to meet with Maha Abdulmoneim, Maria Colussa and her colleagues at Hello Little World to discuss – The Magic of Networks

Where?

Google+ Hangout

What is this about?

The Magic of Networks with Maha Abdelmoneim, Maria Colussa, and others from Hello Little World

In our last Learning2gether event on Sunday Nov 23, Ali Bostangioglu presented a comprehensive set of demographics based on his research into the Webheads CoP. There was some discussion of who was a Webhead. For the purpose of Ali’s study, Webheads are members of either the Yahoo Group (about 1050 registered email addresses), the Facebook group (about 100), or the Webheadsinaction Google+ Community (135).  The point was made that the community likely extends to a wider network, though for Ali’s purposes, this is not quantifiable.

However, we had one participant there, Sebastian from Kerala, who mentioned in text chat that he was in the Hello Little World network. I recognized that this was the community that Maria Colussa identifies with in her Skype byline, and I asked Sebastian if he knew her. Indeed he did, and then I recalled that I have Maria in my circles as one of the Multiliteracies group, not Webheads. The point was being made through example that people like Maria and Sebastian, (and Maha Abdelmoneim another participant in online spaces such as I have a Question and in various MOOCs where Maria and I meet occasionally, and whom we invited to join us in our recent GEC presentation) might not identify themselves as Webheads but can be found actively interacting with us nevertheless in our wider networks.

This HoA seeks to gather colleagues from the wider network to meet with us and try to characterize something of the magic inherent in these wider networks.

On Sun Nov 23 LEARNING2GETHER had the pleasure to meet with Ali Bostancioglu to learn about the preliminary findings from his research on Webheads CoP

In Blackboard Collaborate (Elluminate)
http://learningtimesevents.org/webheads/
Thanks to an ongoing grant from http://www.learningtimes.com/

Recording


In this gathering, Ali reported on his initial findings from the interview data collected via questionnaire and interviews from all Webheads who opted to participate. Ali divided participants into 3 groups; lurkers, active members, and core members based on the amount of messages posted within the WiA Yahoo group. There were 11 lurkers, 9 active members, and 4 core members who participated in the interviews, and findings were discussed with regards to the perspectives of lurkers, active members, and core members.

All were invited to join and participate in the discussion of the results.  Those present included Michael Coghlan, Teresa Almeida d’Eca, Jose Antonio da Silva, Rita Zeinstejer, Sebastian from Kerala, and Halima Ozimova.

This was meant as an informal discussion of the present state of Ali’s data analysis, where Ali would entertain feedback on the direction of his study and seek clarification of some details. We hope that he will present his more definitive findings in a follow-on report later.

Discussion

Ali presented a very interesting set of demographics on the Webheads CoP. There was some discussion of who exactly (or at least quantifiably) was a Webhead. For the purpose of Ali’s study, Webheads are members of either the Yahoo Group (about 1050 registered email addresses), the Facebook group (about 100), or the Webheadsinaction Google+ Community (135).  The point was made that the community likely extends to a wider network, though for Ali’s purposes, this is not quantifiable.

However, we had one participant there, Sebastian from Kerala, who mentioned in text chat that he was in the Hello Little World network. I recognized that this was the community that Maria Colussa identifies with in her Skype byline, and I asked Sebastian if he knew her. Indeed he did, and then I recalled that I have Maria in my circles as one of the Multiliteracies group, not Webheads. The point was being made through example that people like Maria and Sebastian, (and Maha Abdelmoneim another participant in online spaces such as I have a Question and in various MOOCs where Maria and I meet occasionally, and whom we invited to join us in our recent GEC presentation) might not identify themselves as Webheads but can be found actively interacting with us nevertheless in our wider networks. I reiterated something that I have often said, being a Webheads is like being a hippy, they don’t carry ID cards, but if you are one, you know another one when you meet one. This is echoed at the bottom of http://webheads.info, in a tweet by Cristina Costa:

A healthy Open Badges ecosystem exists within the context of policy and regulation at many levels. In this session, we will explore two policy questions:

  • What are the policy considerations at the institutional level?
  • What policies are under consideration – or should be – at the federal level in the U.S.?

Anne Derryberry will put forth the community-developed framework for developing institutional policies which she participated in authoring. Mary Alice McCarthy, Senior Policy Analyst in the Education Policy Program at New America, will present a number of policy discussions occurring at the U.S. federal level.

Sunday Nov  9 was the end of week 3 of EVO Moderator training, and part of that week’s training was on raising awareness of the potential of badges. Learning2gether invited Hope Kandel to come talk to the group on Credly, LearningTimes’s entry into the range of badge ecosystem options. We also took the opportunity to thank Hope, and the LearningTimes team, for extended use of the Bb\Collaborate Elluminate room which they have provided us free of charge for the past decade. We appreciate their support, and were very interested to learn how we could use Credly and badges in general.
