Wed Jul 23 – Joe Dale taking the multimedia appsmashing iPad challenge!

On Wednesday of this week I had the great pleasure of being one of the participants at Joe Dale’s remarkable presentation on appsmashing which was put on as one of a series of webinars offered by Saarland Landesinstitut fur Padagogik und Medien (LPM) and organized by Jürgen Wagner.

I first heard of Joe Dale through an interview by Darrel Branson and Tony Richards of the Ed Tech Crew, which was so interesting that I listened to it twice, and I since met him in Istanbul where he gave a plenary talk at a conference at Sabanci University.  This most recent webinar on appsmashing was 1.5 hours long which gave Joe ample time to take the topic out for a long ride. Appsmashing requires skill and experience with the apps utilized, and relies for example on creating products in one app and storing them on the device’s photoroll or in the cloud, and then developing that product through another app to produce a more elaborate product. For example, Joe showed how animated characters could be created in one app, greenscreened in another, and laid onto a background such as a photo of a local scene to create an animated character overlay on that scene. Joe described several such processes in fine detail and demonstrated considerable knowledge of the apps he was talking about.

Joe’s presentation is one that will be worth replaying hands-on with an iPad handy. I won’t have a chance to do that for week or two, so in this post I want to archive as much as I can in order to eventually make that possible. For this reason I have preserved Jürgen’s comments at the end of this post, after my own here:

Here are the links I harvested at this session, all from posts in the text chat

Two more links from Edudemic: http://sco.lt/9JVifR to wit

This pair of posts, starting with this one, explain how appsmashing, or guiding students to create deliverables from a series of precursor operations on iPad, can be set up and implemented. This article leads to a second one showing by example how to create an iMovie product from Tellagami, 30 hands, and Photospeak http://www.edudemic.com/app-smashing-digital-storytelling-ipad/. View these tutorials in preparation for fully appreciating Joe Dale’s 1.5 hour presentation on appsmashing https://learning2gether.net/2014/07/23/learning2gether-with-joe-dale-about-appsmashing-with-ipads/

Joe sent  a follow-up email to the Learningtgether list, here
https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/learningwithcomputers/conversations/messages/6961

providing a link to another webinar he did subsequently on useful iPad apps to enhance language learning for the LARC Social Media Workshop:

General information

The top half of this writeup is mne (Vance’s) and the other half (below) comes from Juergen’s great email which recapped the webinar with some of the same material I had mentioned. I intend to do more work on this webinar deconstructing it so that I can apply some of its lessons in my teaching, more about which when I have time later. I fly home to Abu Dhabi tomorrow.

The lesson here is that you can produce imaginative student projects through use of a succession of applications. This is more obvious on a PC where you have control over where the intermediate files are than on an iPad where your intermediate work is in the camera roll or in the cloud somewhere. Joe’s contribution was in showing exactly how you stitch those disparate parts together, which is the main challenge for teachers to get their minds around when using mobile technologies.

And more recently, I’ve come across this 17 minute video by Joe,
A Recipe for AppSmashing, from 13 Oct, 2015

What follows here is from Jürgen Wagner’s “post-paratory” email following the event. I have reproduced it verbatim here, as it is rich in content, but there will be some duplications from my own notes. In Jürgen’s words …

App-Smashing has developed into a craze in the US and though it can not even be found on Wikipedia blogposts, Pinterest-boards, YouTube- and Vimeo-clips and tweets about the phenomenon are “exploding” and I forecast that it will “arrive” in Europe soon, with Joe being the only European protagonist in Europe so far.

Thanks for contributing these links to the chat which I gladly share

I’ll share some additional links and quotes from my article – to be published towards the end of the year – with you.

I submitted an extensive linklist to the publisher, hoping he will make it accessible along with the article.

What Joe might have stressed a little more is the central tenet of Ed Tech Teachers:
All the Good Apps Fit on One Screen as opposed to “There’s an app for that”.

or, what struck me most:Educators shouldnt think of iPads as repositories of apps but rather as portable media creationdevices.(Ed Tech Teachers Tom Daccord and Justin Reich)

I’ll just share a few here:

In my article you’ll find loads of links to App Smash App Packs, Task Challenges, Idea Cards, etc.

I must admit I am a bit annoyed concerning the recent Tellagami update, which introduced in app purchases and crippled !!! the free version

Here are two blopgposts that reflect my own thinking quite well

Tellagami published http://blog.tellagami.com/2014/06/14/message-to-educators/ but has not yet answered an email I sent them a week ago.

I submitted an article about Tellagami to German portal site http://lehrer-online.de and overnight my draft became worthless. I had to send a new one that is waiting to be published.

Towards the end of August I’ll take part in the Colloque CyberLangues in Rennes (France) with a workshop about Tellagami and had to scrap most of what I had planned. Can I expect participants to download the EDU-version for 5 dollars???

I suppose I can’t, so I’ll work with two iPads, one with the crippled FREE version, the other on with the paid version on it (for demonstration only).

Our calendar of webinars for teachers of foreign languages

I mentioned the iUSBport 2 in the chat as well, which can be used to address privacy issues. My friend and LPM-colleague Patrick Schäfer wrote an excellent article about that, due to be published in the next issue of http://www.lamultimedia.de/ and I’m planning to translate it into English, French and Spanish and have it published in suitable mags there.

Anyone offering there help in proofreading my translation?

Best regards

Jürgen

I suppose there were quite a few particpants who may be presenters in their own right. Please feel free to tell me what subjects you’d like to share with us.

By the way

On the occasion of the publication of my Newsletter 100 for teachers of foreign languages I created 2 padlets for feedback:

http://padlet.com/wagjuer/newsletter / (still open)

http://padlet.com/wagjuer/feedback / (still open)

You can subscribe and consult the newsletter archives here

I’ve only just realised that I’ve passed the 100-mark for webinars without noticing, thus I created a webinar feedback padlet to which I hope you will contribute: http://padlet.com/wagjuer/webinars

Following Joe’s example I started my own Pinterest-Board about App-Smashing

Sun Jul 20 1400 GMT Learning2gether reflects on summer of RSCON5, TTO MOOC, iTDi, and MMVC14

http://englishlearning-marijanasblog.blogspot.com/2014/07/what-fantastic-edu-weekend-with-rscon5.html

Many of us are anticipating summer holidays, some like me, Vance, are traveling and can’t connect with all the events happening this summer when they are synchronously online. From a presenter’s or participants point of view, even if you did connect, perhaps you didn’t have time to explore or explain your topic in detail, or perhaps there was too little time to discuss it.

If you can relate to the educators’ dilemma in the paragraph above and would like to take a moment to join us to revisit or reflect on topics of interest to you, whether as a presenter or participant, or most likely both, in either of the events mentioned above, or any other you have enjoyed this summer, please join us at 1400 GMT this Sunday July 20. We are going To The Ocean, to the virtual beach, spread a virtual beach mat, maybe kick a few beach balls around, and share stories, data, whatever.

Hangout or Bb/Collaborate Elluminate?  Any preference? As RSCON5 was held in that environment, should we go there? Why not, anyone can join, and its mat spreads well at the beach. It is summertime, let’s meet there then, shall we?

In Blackboard Collaborate (Elluminate)

http://learningtimesevents.org/webheads/

Dress comfortably, come as you are, all are welcome, hope to see you there

RSCON5 follow-up

We hope you were inspired by the Reform Symposium Free Online Conference (RSCON) events that took place July 10-13th. The online global event featured 50+ presentations11 keynote speakers3 panel discussions, and a tech/app swapalooza. Our plenary, Dean Shareski, began the conference by challenging us to spread joy in our practice. Our keynotes came from 9 countries and our presenters from over 15 countries. Topics included mobile learning, gamification, differentiation, writing web tools, passion based learning, maker education, teaching english language learners, demand high teaching, Chess, puppets, Minecraft, digital portfolios, and much more! Two of our keynotes were students who started their own companies and one of our presenters was a 10 year-old Youtuber who walked us through machinima and Mindcraft.

On July 10th, we hosted our first pre-conference Author Spotlight. Find the short video interviews here,http://www.futureofeducation.com/page/recordings-2014

Learning2gether with EdLC and Edunation: Randall Sadler on Holodecks in Second Life

Learning2gether Episode 225

Randall Sadler on Holodecks: Sun Jul 6 Edunation Language Community EdLC event in Second Life, hosted by Heike Philp

On Sunday I, Vance had just arrived in Brussels to attend the Antwerp CALL 2014 conference. As my travel plans had been uncertain I didn’t have any particular plans for Learning2gether on this day, but I had the great pleasure of attending this live event in Second Life, which would have been after midnight where I live in UAE but occurred late evening in Belgium.

In this event I had the great pleasure of following Randall Sadler through his demonstration of holodeck software he is using and what he can do with it in Second Life. The workshop was pitched at people with greater skills in SL than mine, but it was fascinating observing the potential of being able to change your surroundings at a whim, and to follow the crowd as the avatars marveled at the incredible builds.

Dr. Randall Sadler on using Holodecks with Language Learners in SL

Hopefully, we’ll find an embed of the recording of this event to place here.

Randall Sadler has given numerous presentations on this topic recently; for example, on June 4 this year he gave a presentation with the following description:

Holodecks–a Users and Builders introduction.  This workshop will introduce to holodecks and take you step-by-step how you create your own scene using the Horizons Holodeck System.  (If you want to package your own builds during the workshop, please buy either the Horizons Multi-Scene Rezzer Home Edition or the Horizons Multi-Scene Rezzer Pro Version before the workshop–both available on Second Life Marketplace. For more information, visit and join the NING at http://virtualworldssig.ning.com/

Here are some of Randall Renoir’s recent recorded presentations
