Learning2gether Episode #385
Helaine Marshall used http://learning2gether.pbworks.com the way I have always intended. She is a writer at that wiki, she wanted to share with the community what she and her colleagues have been doing with their iEARN collaborative project the International Film Club, so she created an event for Sunday March 11 at the sweet-spot time of 14:00 UTC and arranged to use the Bb Collaborate Webheads Virtual Room at that time. Then she appeared as scheduled and presented her work on this impressive project. Vance handled the streaming, and this (eventually) popped out the other end:
International Film Club is an iEARN Project. https://iearn.org/cc/space-2/group-554 Here you can connect youth in a global effort to build mutual understanding and intercultural bridges through shared experiences with films and robust online interactions, both synchronous and asynchronous.
This project launched in January 2017 with a partnership between the presenter Helaine Marshall, from Long Island University, Hudson Campus, in New York, NY, Fay Stump at John Handley High School in Winchester, Virginia, and Khalid Fetih at OKE Language School in Berkane, Morocco. This year they are also collaborating with SIMA, https://simaawards.org/aboutsima,
curator of documentary films for young people that promote global awareness.

It was a great presentation, so what went wrong?
As soon as the session ended and I checked for the recorded video, I found this notice:

Title: “Infusing Digital Literacies into World Language Teacher Education TPACK with Machinima”
Details on access to webinar closer to the date
We are really pleased to have Alina Horlescu hold a webinar for us this week! Do join us for “Infusing Digital Literacies into World Language Teacher Education TPACK with Machinima” 🙂
Infusing Digital Literacies into World Language Teacher Education TPACK with Machinima
Dr. Alina Horlescu firstname.lastname@example.org Studies indicate that many language teachers have a tendency to view language as an abstract linguistic system and are, therefore, hesitant to acknowledge new dimensions of literacy and that learning a language in the digital age involves new communicative competencies including the ability to construct knowledge collaboratively and create and interpret texts that combine various resources made available by digital technologies. This presentation reports on a recently completed PhD study conducted to investigate the Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) of language teachers engaged in the digital literacy practice of producing a multimodal ensemble with machinima with a view to proposing an updated TPACK model for integration of digital literacies into language teacher education. To this end, language teachers participated in a course specifically designed to train them to make machinima videos as well as prompt them to reflect on the affordances of the tool and their transformative effect on the concepts of language and literacy. This presentation discusses the main findings of the study and introduces a reconceptualised TPACK model for integration of digital literacies into language teacher education. The model includes ecological perspectives on language and language learning and teaching and a metalanguage that would enable teachers to discuss and explain the creation of various mode relationships enabled by digital tools.
