Learning2gether Episode 172

August 23-25, 2013 – Moodlemoot Virtual Conference 2013 (MMVC13)

The MoodleMoot Conference is an annual event that takes place every August online via the WizIQ Virtual Classroom.

The conference has also been made into a course to help participants receive the ongoing updates on the conference. The course will remain active after the conclusion of the conference to enable participants to exchange views. Enroll into the course right away to get updates and join the discussions with other participants of MMVC13.


On Sunday Aug 25 Vance Stevens presented “Learning2gether about Everything”

Learning2gether was following other presentations at this online conference, which took place Aug 23-25.


Learning2gether about Everything

We are in a paradigm shift where ongoing learning is moving from the scarcity of what many of us could once only find through degree programs and flying off to international conferences, to the over-abundance of what is available online through MOOCs and webinars and countless online events and communities. This abundance caters to all learning styles, the only seeming limitation being what we can steer our way and then filter so that we can make some sense of the most useful droplets of knowledge streaming from the fire hose.  What is abundantly possible is limited only by scarcities in time, energy, and attention.

Learning2gether http://learning2gether.net tries to keep a finger on the pulse of some of this activity. In so doing we connect with other networks and communities of networks, including the ones putting on this online event. This presentation will connect with others in these networks and discuss some of the balances of abundance and scarcity that enhance and limit the opportunities we are now finding online.

Recordings from Sun Aug 18 at 1300 GMT – Cintia Costa and her students from Amazonia, Ivo Matos, Raquely Caldeira, and Beatriz Carvalho

Where was it?

What happened?

Cintia and her students charmed us with their approach to learning language based on avoiding textbooks in favor of freeing students to express themselves using creative technology tools on topics they were passionate about.  Three of Cintia’s students joined us online to corroborate the success of Cintia’s highly motivating contexts for learning.

Cintia writes: In order to show our support to the uprisings and demonstrations for better public services and against corruption that took place all over Brazil in June 2013, my undergraduate students of Teaching English as a Foreign Language and I decided to create a different kind of protest in the Brazilian Amazon. We created a video in which we made our voices heard and stated our demands on the public services we think we deserve as citizens. To share this experience with you, we are presenting all the steps of this innovative project.
