On Sunday August 6 I dropped by WizIQ for the last day of the 6th annual MoodleMoot Virtual Conference Aug 4-6 2017. The conference was one of many mounted for free throughout the year by Nellie Deutsch, and open to volunteer presenters who sign up on a Google Doc wiki to schedule and announce their presentations. I stayed for the three presentations noted below. Recordings of all are available, but in order to see them you must be enrolled in the course. Enrollment is free in Nellie’s courses.
Here’s where to enroll:
These are the presentations I attended
12:00 noon UTC – Use of Technology in CLIL
Dr. Revathi Viswanatha discussed Use of Technology in CLIL Approach to Teaching in the Indian Context. This presentation throws light on the need for using CLIL Approach to teaching in an Indian classroom and the ways of integrating technology in such a classroom.
13:00 UTC – What to expect in online education in coming years
Parminder Mitter Chaudhuri discussed What to expect in online education in coming years- A Teacher’s Perspective. She presented on upcoming trends in online education. Are the facilitators of online education well equipped to cope with it? How profitable it will be for an Entrepreneur Teacher and a Role Model Teacher?
14:00 UTC – What about Non – Native Online English Teachers?
Halina Ostankowicz – Bazan discussed What about Non – Native Online English Teachers?
Are “the native speaker of English” and “the English teacher” synonyms?
in this session, the speaker discussed advantages and disadvantages of being a non-native Online English Teacher. As a non-native Online English Teacher, she has faced discrimination on quite a lot of occasions. Fortunately, she has not given up.
