On Sunday, Nov 6, 2016, at the usual time of 1400 UTC, EVO moderators and coordinators gathered to discuss how things were going over halfway through the annual training of EVO moderators for the coming year.

Where? Blackboard Collaborate (Elluminate)

This week’s EVO Moderator Training discussion is on platforms, badges, and certificates. You can join live at http://webheads.learningtimesevents.org/ or catch the stream here, https://youtu.be/VrI7KjyCDHs. All sessions held in the Webheads virtual office are by definition open ones, so all are welcome to attend.

Vance explained to moderators how they could use the LearningTimes Bb Collaborate Webheads Virtual Office graciously provided for the past decade as a grant to Webheads in Action by the good folks at LearningTimes, http://learningtimes.com. The following slides (since expanded over what was shown in the Bb Collaborate session) show how to reserve the room, how to enter the room as a session moderator, how to record the session and make sure the recording is saved on the Elluminate servers, and finally how to find the recording and extract its share link.

Sat Nov 5 noon EDT Classroom 2.0 Live with Craig Yen – Becoming a connected educator

Saturday, November 5, 2016
Becoming a Connected EducatorAre you a teacher or administrator who has been reluctant to try using social media tools such as Twitter to connect with other educators? Have you wanted to expand your professional learning network but just didn’t know how? Often it’s because you haven’t seen how it can help you, and you don’t feel you have the time to learn with all of the many demands on your time. You aren’t alone. I guarantee that you won’t want to miss this webinar with our special guest, Craig Yen. Craig is a 5th grade teacher who teaches at Valle Verde Elementary in Berkeley, California. He is a fan of all things Edtech and enjoys learning from others and sharing this learning widely. No matter where you go on the internet (or even f2f) you will find him participating and sharing constantly with others, whether it is in EdCamps, webinars, Google Hangouts, Twitter chats, #coffeeEDUs, #EduMatch, Mystery Skype calls, or at conferences such as CUE, ISTE and #notatiste. He is someone who is an awesome example of a teacher who has navigated this maze and has learned tools, tips and tricks to manage it with great success (and still keep his sanity)! Within this session, you will learn what it means to be a connected educator. Tips will be given on how to manage your Twitter stream and how and where to find people to connect with. He’ll also share examples of projects that will demonstrate how you can connect yourself and your students outside the classroom walls.Remember to follow us on Twitter: #liveclass20More information and session details are at http://live.classroom20.com.
