On Sun Nov 16 LEARNING2GETHER was chatting with Mike Marzio about Real English in blended ESOL teaching/learning

Real English is a long-time passion of Mike Marzio (that and cruising the riviera on his motorbike). Mike has become well known in language learning circles for videoing street language and developing lessons around the conversations and making those available free at his website http://www.real-english.com/. Today he shows us his new “jumbo lesson” with the new features – as a component in blended ESOL teaching/learning.

Mon Nov 10 A Look at Policy Matters that Affect Open Badges

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.

Throughout November -Educational Technology & Global Issues – An IATEFL LTSIG & GISIG event

The IATEFL Learning Technologies SIG and Global Issues SIG are putting together an exciting month-long online event. The format will be a series of audio episodes, almost like a weekly radio show. Each episode will feature a full interview with an expert in the field of technology discussing different problematic aspects of edtech and global issues, as well as success stories of where technology is genuinely making a difference. After each episode, listeners can continue the conversation by contributing in various moderated discussions or leaving their own audio comments at our site. It promises to be an event like nothing you’ve ever heard before!

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.

LEARNING2GETHER with Quim Sabrià about EdPuzzle


Download mp3:
https://learning2getherdotnet.files.wordpress.com/2014/11/learning2gether-with-quim-sabric3a0-edpuzzle-7giuuymakce.mp3?

On Sunday Nov 2 we had the great pleasure of meeting with Quim Sabrià, one of four developers of EdPuzzle, a unique online software tool for cropping video and developing lessons around that video segment, embedding it online, assigning it to a class, and tracking student analytics via the http://edpuzzle.com. Quim convinced us that this was a tool designed for teachers like him (and us) and he assured us it would be free forever.  Check the recording to find out more.

Where? Google Hangout on Air

What was this about?

I was so impressed with this review of EdPuzzle http://sco.lt/4uf7GT that I registered as a user. This prompted an automated response from Quim, to which I responded, and to which he replied, so we negotiated an online meeting via HoA. Meanwhile I’ve found a power-EdPuzzle user in my workplace, Daniella, who joined us in the discussion of this intriguing video embed tool. Benjamin was also there with questions about advanced aspects of the tool. Quim sent us a short and useful introduction here: goo.gl/IHD0Ef

What happened during  the chat?

Quim offered links relating to EdPuzzle

And we were attacked by a griefer (first time ever :-)

Our first ever griefer was apparently a netizen from Russia who dropped in on us with a hulk avatar and disrupted proceedings by rapping into the mic.  I muted him (from his profile, appears to be a young boy) he unmuted, I ejected him, and that worked for 30 seconds till he managed to get back in. We had 9 in the HoA so while I was ejecting him the second time with one hand, I managed to get myself in on another computer with the other and fill the HoA, and we had no further visitations. All in all, it was amusing chaos, all part of the HoA experience.

Meanwhile I have found an easier way to deal with ths. I’ve consulted

Digital learning tools are becoming ever more common in K-6 classrooms. With this shift, teachers are looking for high-quality content for students that allows them to differentiate instruction and assess student comprehension.

If you want to be IN the HoA you should check the social media sites such as http://webheadsinaction.org/live for the direct link from about half an hour before 1400 as I’ll post it there and wait for people to populate it. Find the direct link, click on it, and you’re in. If you’re not among the first ten you can listen to the stream and interact in the text chat and if we know you’re there we’ll try to make room for you in the HoA.
