Learning2gether Episode 379
On Wed Nov 29 1400 UTC Learning2gether arranged to meet with Shelly Terrell to talk about her new book, Hacking Digital Learning Strategies, which she presented in the context of how her newborn daughter will be raised in a digital world, with so many implications for how she and other teachers can engage their students in the different world that most of us find ourselves in, and that others are even now just entering.
Where? in Bb Collaborate, Webheads Virtual Room
There’s more information about how to set up your BbC here

Full Quote: “Technology has connected human beings more than ever. Our devices connect us to each other and our devices connect to each other to paint a bigger picture about the way we live our lives (health, shopping, education, etc.). More than ever our digital learners need experience using technology to collaborate and solve problems with peers worldwide and they need to know how to make sense of all this data to decide how to live a meaningful life.”
I’ve had this book listed at Berry Bush Books since 2011
Shelly’s slides at Webcon Nov 24-25, 2017 – https://conference.iatefl.org/
During the presentation, participants could get help or find the livestream of Shelly’s presentation in Chatwing
Participants were informed that Vance was attempting to stream the event live on https://www.youtube.com/user/vancestev/ but that bandwidth issues caused the stream to be broadcast in spurts and to cut out frequently during streaming.
YouTube recorded what it got until the stream stopped and put what it had up to that point in the can. The stream continued intermittently and would have been visible to viewers, but only 7 minutes were recorded until the stream stopped the first time. The video of that is unlisted and will be replaced when I am able to grab a full version from the Bb Collaborate recording.
