Learning2gether Episode 165
Learning2gether monitored a number of events taking place this weekend from Saturday June 15 to Monday June 17, 2013. Probably the most listenable recording was the one above, from Stephen Downes, being interviewed by Nellie Deutsch for Moodle MOOC on Saturday.
Monday June 17 – Jeff Lebow streams ‘English SOS’ (Speaking Online Show)
Brought to you by Jeff Lebow’s courageous ENG317 students at Busan University of Foreign Studies, Jeff has adapted Hangouts to motivating his students to connect with native speakers and practice English online. In this event, we witnessed a delightful series of presentations by Jeff’s students, who bring a lot of creativity to the hangouts. In response to announcements (on the Webheads list <http://groups.yahoo.com/group/evonline2002_webheads/message/30479> and on Learning2gether) Carol Yeager, Rita Zeinstejer, and Vance joined in the text chat in this session which coincided with time for Learning2gether.
This recording features, among other presentations
- A perspicacious talk about a Korean reality show where celebrities are shown spending time with their children, which strikes a chord in Korea
- A delightful Kim Bop cooking lesson
According to Jeff, the students have all consented to having their recordings posted online. Details about all English SOS segments can be found at: http://englishbridges.net/live.
Everyone is welcome to tune in live at http://koreabridge.net/live or
http://englishbridges.net/live and chime in with comments or questions in the text chat.
Jeff and his students will be streaming live as well at the following time this week, and beyond that Jeff is hoping to expand the concept to include students worldwide.
