Learning2gether Episode 177
On Friday September 27, Learning2gether facilitated breakouts from two conferences in Latin America
Ironically, neither worked out very well. Benjamin in Mexico City was doing fine with the setup but lost his Hangout just as he was starting his presentation. We had Maria ok at FAAPI but her sound cut out once she started presenting. Consequently, the video posted here is of value only as archive tokens, but we were unable to record presentations.
Hangout with Benjamin Stewart – EFL Educators Share or Perish
This event was delayed at the start and re-scheduled to begin 45 late waiting for the live audience to arrive. Elizabeth Anne and Vance were in the Hangout with Benjamin, but just as we could hear the audience coming into the room, Benjamin dropped from his Hangout. He apparently had to begin the live presentation without the Hangout as the recording appeared at his live stream at http://benjaminleestewart.blogspot.mx/p/channel.html, indicating that Google had terminated it and posted it at YouTube. The Hangout did not resume, so this is as much as we got: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hfRa4RM3IGg&feature=share
Benjamin Stewart wishes to invite the Learning2gether community to this TILL event (Teachers for Interactive Learning) in hopes of getting some perspective regarding what it means to share.
The format for the HOA (Hangout On Air) is 20-30 minutes of Benjamin’s presentation, followed by 20-30 minutes Q & A (or discussion). Discussions may come from face-to-face interactions and/or via the HOA.
Although the target audience is the EFL educator (pre/in-service), all educators, trainers, etc. are encouraged to participate in the discussion.

Hangout with Maria Colussa at FAAPI in Buenos Aires
María Colussa presented at the FAAPI conference in Buenos Aires (an English teachers´ big annual event) on her personal journey to become a connected educator in which EVO and the Webheads / MultiMOOC / Learning2gether communities play such an important role. She will try to be connected by twitter (#FAAPI13) and on Friday at 20:00pm GMT she will try to post a link (depending on the internet signal) to a hangout to be active for some minutes before the actual workshop. Learning2gether coordinated with her, started and streamed the hangout, but we lost sound from Buenos Aires once the presentation started.
Where: Either Hangout or Skype (if Hangout not possible)
There was another event announced on Learning2gether this weekend
Moodle MOOC 2 on WizIQ will start on October 1, 2013. Join this class to learn more about the MOOC.
Participants will learn about the course areas, the workload and tasks for the course, and about the certificates of participation.
