HelloTalk – A language learning community on your mobile

We decided to make this accessible in other languages as well. Thus we created blogposts in GERMAN*
HelloTalk – eine Commmunity zum Sprachenlernen auf Ihrem Handy

HelloTalk –apprendre une langue étrangère en tandem à partir de votre téléphone portable

HelloTalk: una Comunidad para aprender idiomas en tu dispositivo móvil

*In case anyone is interested in using these versions and publish them as guest blogposts you can do so for free or “multiply” the message via mailinglists, etc, providing you state Nik’s name as the author and cite us as the authors of the translated versions.*

Mon Dec 8 The Year in Review – Accomplishments from the Badge Alliance Community

This event has been scheduled for “2:00 ET”. It seems unlikely that this would be a 2 a.m. in a time zone that appears to be that of the organizers. Therefore, I assume 1400 ET, which would be 1900 GMT, or according my calculations below, time where you are …
(one more reason why those planning events for international audiences should give times in GMT / UTC imho)

2014 has been a landmark year for open badges. We kicked off the Badge Alliance to service the growing open badges ecosystem through action-oriented working groups and tackled salient issues collaboratively. During this live session, we’ll review the accomplishments of several of the working groups, including research, standard, endorsement, and directory. We’ll learn about the objectives each working group set out to accomplish within the 6 month cycle and the process it took in order to reach those goals. This session is intended to be collabortive and we invite the audience to engage with questions and feedback.

To join the live sessions, please use the Blackboard Collaborate Web Conference link: http://tinyurl.com/OpenBadgesCollaborate

And as always, we look forward to your ongoing participation in the Open Badges MOOC! You are welcome to continue to use the MOOC resources (badges.coursesites.com) and submit challenge assignments for review by our experts. You’ll also find an extremely useful set of resources on the Reconnect Learning site.

In addition, it allows teachers to foster student engagement by connecting mobile devices such as tablets and laptops to classroom displays and interactive whiteboards. Teachers can use real-time student responses to instantly adjust any lesson plan when it matters the most – in the moment of learning. Steven will demonstrate how ClassFlow works and provide examples of ways it is being used in classrooms across all grade levels.Steven lives in Winston-Salem, NC and is an educator, speaker, blogger, #Edchat Co-Creator, author, learning evangelist, Dad, Edublogs Twitterer Of The Year, ASCD Emerging Leader, Top 50 Innovators in Edu just to mention a few of his amazing accomplishments, and we can’t wait to learn together with him about this great tool!
