What is GCW, Global Collaboration Week?

Global Collaboration Week is one of two conferences hosted annually by the GlobalED network coordinated by Steve Hargadon and Lucy Gray among others The two conferences are this one, GCW and GEC, the annual Global Ed Conference, overviewed at
https://www.globaleducationconference.org/?xg_source=msg_mes_network

These two conferences are run through a Ning. To propose an event, anyone can create an event on the site, as explained here:
https://www.globalcollaborationweek.org/host-your-own-event.html

Accepted proposals are promoted via the Ning to the schedule. Almost anything that qualifies is accepted if proposed in time, as long as it meets at least one of these criteria:

  • introduce teachers and their students to the potential and excitement of our global project-based learning
  • educate fellow teachers about various connective and collaborative tools and resources
  • call attention to the need and importance of fostering global competency in students


Proposal submitted to GCW


This is similar to what we submitted, modified slightly

Learning2gether, let’s talk online, Electronic Village Online (EVO), TESOL and IATEFL interest sections, the Global Education Conference Network, and other online communities of practice have long been connecting thousands of teachers and students through their overlapping networks to create significant change in themselves and their students via the Internet. Looking back on these decades of connectivism, educators have been bringing to the table their know-how to bring peace to this planet, to reverse climate change, to reduce plastic waste and to reverse this warfare against nature.

The moderators of this session represent communities that have been meeting and collaborating online for well over a decade now. In this event we discuss

  • how we have formed, developed, and intertwined our online communities;
  • how we are continuing to keep each other up to date about the latest developments in connective, social, and collaborative tools and resources;
  • and how we are leveraging them to effect positive changes in education, and for the climate and planet.


Why September 26?

The 26th of September, 2019 is the European Day of Languages organized on high ministerial level by European Commission for Modern Languages of the Council of Europe. This event is being announced for Sept 26 on the European Day of Languages website https://edl.ecml.at/.

More critically GCW takes place during an entire week of global climate strikes either side of the UN Climate Summit on Sept 23

Who are we?

Accordingly, Vance Stevens, Heike Philp, Mubarek Akkadar, and Hanaa Khamis have joined forces, networks actually, to discuss for an hour how our PLNs have been involved for decades now in exploring social networking and CMC tools to help raise consciousness about climate and social issues across our networks.

Learning2gether is a participant-driven professional development series that has produced over 420 podcasts since its inception in 2009. L2g derives from the ongoing Webheads in Action (WiA) community of practice and professional development movement, http://webheads.info, which has been putting teachers and students in touch with one another digitally, at a distance, since 1998. Stevens (2014, p.162) characterizes L2g as

“an ongoing project where presentations are organized weekly by volunteers collaborating on a wiki. They are free for all, online, recorded, and archived at http://learning2gether.net. There is also an index that gives a clear overview of all presentations so far and how to access their recordings (http://learning2gether.pbworks.com/archiveindex). Learning2gether events perpetuate the spirit and goals of Webheads in Action … and are an excellent example of teachers continuing to learn from one another how to experience connectivist ways of sharing expertise in distributed knowledge spaces. It often happens that teachers present projects with their students which are examples of how they are transferring what they learn from each other online to their blended and hybrid classroom learning ecologies.”

Learning2gether has connected over the years with numerous communities of practice worldwide, including two whose representatives will appear in our discussion

Let’s talk online http://www.letstalkonline.com/ has been involved in language teaching and learning at a distance in real-time via internet for more than 15 years.

Electronic Village Online (EVO) has developed as a community of practice that in 2001 facilitated a program of online discussions and workshops that have been held every year since then each January-February. According to its website, http://evosessions.pbworks.com/, EVO sessions can serve as

“a discussion of an issue in the field of teaching language, or experiments with and pedagogy of new technology tools … or to carry on a discussion of topics important to your member group … EVO is a long-standing project of TESOL’s CALL-IS, and we have joined forces in our coordination and moderation teams with IATEFL and national Teaching Associations to offer sessions that relate to IATEFL’s special interest groups (SIGs) and the IATEFL conventions and webinars.”


Our topic for the discussion

The moderators of this GWC event have chosen the important topic of climate change to focus our discussion, and as a bridge to illustrate how the communities of practice we have been building over the past decades can be directed through connectivist means at collaborating on addressing one of the world’s most intractable yet, as far as the members of our communities are concerned, least controversial conundrums (e.g. this CNN The Daily Show where Trevor Noah interviews Greta Thunberg):
https://youtu.be/rhQVustYV24

and this screen shot from the interview, which was being shared around Facebook at the time of this event: https://www.screencast.com/t/Mtx6DeYHS7

Clearly, there is a role for educators here, if not an imperative, in helping society discern fact from fake news.

Vance first became aware of Greta Thunberg when Amy Goodman interviewed her for Democracy Now on Dec 11, 2018 at the 24th World Climate Summit taking place in Katowice, Poland at that time:


Heike’s elaboration

This event is organised for Global Collaboration Week and this seems to coincide with the climate change action week by Greta Thunberg. Thousands will walk the streets. Public school strike too.

On top it also coincides with the European language day, an annual event. There happens to be a calendar advertising around 430 events in the whole of Europe in 53. On this calendar there are only 31 online events and none in real-time, so this is only the beginning but perhaps it helps carry our message which should be read those in the streets following Greta. edl.ecml.at

Online collaboration is the most eco friendly way of CPD and conversing online (especially when done in real-time) the cheapest way of learning a language and again the most eco friendly way. So we rightly belong to the call for action to reverse climate change and if we could help this movement with our know how best to collaborate online.

I almost feel that this climate change movement is what we have been preparing ourselves for during decades of online collaboration of communities of practices.

If Greta approached any one of us and asked us: how could I best collaborate online with thousands of people? What should I do and what kind of tools should I use to advertise and to work together…what would we answer?

I hope that the result of this event is not only to show off who we are but to constructively come up with a list of the top 5 tools for online collaboration. It’s a kind of looking forward to what we can do now… to assist those who currently go in the streets to protest. A show case for best practice.

Our goal for the event

To focus our discussion, we aimed to come up with a list of the top 5 software / connectivity tools that might help impact social and climate change (and by extension, to help any CoP promote and sustain any agenda).

To help us vote for the top 5 tools, Heike suggested we use Tricider.
http://www.tricider.com/brainstorming/368pPXLkXtp

In Tricider you can mention the tool and a short description of the tool. Participants can then elevate or demote the tool’s list in the ranking of all the tools proposed.

We had asked our panelists to please consider, if they were to list 5 tools which they think are a must for connectivist online collaboration, which ones would they be?

We made it clear in promoting the event that this was a question we’d like both our panelists and participants to address.

Hanaa suggested (in a Facebook chat)

  • Facebook and Facebook Live
  • Google Apps (Docs, Slides, Sheets, Forms …)
  • Twitter
  • Video conferencing tools like Zoom
  • Polling apps
  • You Tube

Vance and Mbarek were thinking of

  • Trello
  • Slack

And Mbarek added other tools that we have used in the past 20 years of organizing EVO (Electronic Village Online)

  • Wikis
  • Google Drive
  • Yahoo Groups
  • Google Sites
  • Flipgrid
  • Whatsapp

During the event we invited the audience to contribute their ideas

Carrie proposed the following tools for our consideration. She originally distinguished them as being for project work or classroom use, but  as the lists expanded their purpose seemed to overlap. She posted some of these tools in Zoom chat and others were added on the fly as we discussed the possibilities in Zoom:

  • Padlet map
  • Google Slides
  • Adobe Spark
  • Chromebook,
  • Screencastify
  • Google Docs, Slides, and Sheets
  • Powerpoint
  • Zoom
  • Google Meet, and lots more from Google….
  • Edmodo,
  • Snapchat
  • Instagram

Lucy Gray was sitting in on our session, but when Heike asked her a question, she joined our discussion, and recommended the following tools:

  • Zoom
  • Flipgrid
  • Padlet
  • Google Classroom (with some reservations, which are recorded in the video)
  • Canvas
  • Blackboard Collaborate (which she said was ‘pretty awesome’)


The Weight is on us

Lucy Gray : Yes, Maureen. I agree!
Lucy Gray : Teachers also don’t have time to filter through the good stuff.
Lucy Gray : I think my son is in Twitch… I’ll have to ask him.
Lucy Gray : That’s a good question…
Lucy Gray : There definitely is inconsistent levels of knowledge
Hanaa Khamis : I agree Mbarek
Hanaa Khamis : Similar here in Egypt
Maureen Cropper : Yes; that’s right, Lucy. I find it sometimes hard to remember all the various options, despite the interesting names ( twitch, etc!)
Hanaa Khamis : Social change 1st

Just after Heike brought up Twitch, Hanaa interjected with a description of how the tools under discussion were contributing to social changes in her context in Egypt. She used https://ytcutter.com/ to snip that part of the video and put it up at YouTube, where I was able to retrieve it and embed it here:

Lucy Gray : I had someone in our GCW chat ask me what it meant to collaborate!!
Heike Philp : nice one… haha
Lucy Gray : In general, we’ve actually had a good number of people participating in GEC activities in general from the MENA region.
Heike Philp : so maybe the synchronous way of doing things is not the right one?????
Heike Philp : look at MOOCs
Heike Philp : etwinning is also a great example for online collaboration/ cooperation acress Europe
Lucy Gray : I think people are over networked… and it makes sense to go to the most popular network where people are already are
Maureen Cropper : That’s true
Alejandro Espinosa : Thank you all, I have to leave a few minutes, a good day
Lucy Gray : There are some channels out there that really leverage YouTube and FB for live events.
Lucy Gray : For example, explore.org. One of my favorite resources.
Lucy Gray : I also think it’s a problem that traditional educational groups don’t necessarily partner and promote more grassroots efforts
Lucy Gray : Also, on the other hand, the EdCamp movement here in the US started as grassroots and has been really embraced by teachers.
Lucy Gray : https://www.edcamp.org/
Lucy Gray : Where is everyone from?
Lucy Gray : I’m close to Chicago Illinois USA.
Maureen Cropper : Thanks; no comments other than this was interesting and informative. I am a librarian in Lex KY
Lucy Gray : Yay, Lorraine!!!
Lucy Gray : 🙂
Lucy Gray : I tried to get our music teacher at my school to participate, Lorraine.
Lucy Gray : https://www.facebook.com/groups/741169739394984/
Lucy Gray : 🙂
Maureen Cropper : I feel like I need to learn more about this to share with my students, because I also teach 🙂

Carrie has just said she would email us the thumbs-up snapshot that she had just taken. But afterwards Hanaa used https://ytcutter.com/ to make a video snippet of the last 9 minutes of our conversation from the thumbs-up point onwards, and including our goodbyes to Trinity, Carrie’s enthusiastic student.

Announcements

Announcements were made on the following Facebook Groups

Here is the start of the announcement I posted on Sept 24 on the above Facebook groups:

#Learning2gether Episode 422 goes online Sept 26, 2019 as part of GCW, the Global Collaboration Week event taking place now and through Sept 27. Sept 26 happens to be the European Day of Languages this year, but more critically GCW takes place during an entire week of Global Climate Strikes either side of the UN Climate Summit on Sept 23. Accordingly, Vance Stevens, Heike Philp, Mubarek Akkadar, and Hanaa Khamis have joined forces, networks actually, to discuss for an hour how our PLNs have been involved for decades now in exploring social networking and CMC tools to help raise consciousness about climate and social issues across our networks.

Feedback from a group of students in Uruguay

I received a PowerPoint slide show sent me out of the blue on behalf of a group of students in Uruguay, by their teacher, Flavia.  In their cover email message, they said, “We are pleased to send you our collaboration for the Global Collaboration Week regarding the Climate Change event.
What you will find attached to this email is what our students have been working on so far. Best regards, ALI – American Language Institute.” http://www.ali.edu.uy/

I wrote back for more information, and they replied::

We are Mateo, Mateo and Germán from ALI (American Language Institute) in Uruguay. We send this presentation because the planet is very affected because of the Climate Change and we would like to make an impact in the society. In the presentation you can see what the Climate Change is and how it affects the planet.

I wasn’t able to find their presentation in the GCW schedule but I assumed they had presented there. Eventually, Flavia wrote back:

Thank you very much for including us there!!! It looks awesome!
We didn’t “present”… I guess. It’s our first time in this event, and what we did was work in class investigating and producing the ppt, and we sent it to you in the hopes that that was what was expected from us….

Well Yes!! Why not!? I am proud and happy to include their presentation in this post, in keeping with the inclusive spirit of Global Collaboration Week. Through this blog, Flavia, Mateo, Mateo., and Germán have mounted their presentation and achieved inclusion as part of the archive of record of GCW 2019.

More from Hanaa Khamis

When Hanaa Khamis joined our panel, I asked her to write a one or two sentence blurb about the NileTESOL LT SIG  and PD committee that she will represent, so I could include a sentence or two characterizing it in the proposal. At that moment (we were chatting in FB) I was filling in the online form. But she was crossing Cairo on a bus, and could not respond before I sensed that if I didn’t submit the form I had open in a browser window I’d be timed out and have to copy/paste the whole thing in again. So I hit submit. Just after that, Hanaa FB’d me this very nice description of why she was interested in joining this proposal. I couldn’t resist appending it here, though Hanaa’s description, even in reduced form, did not reach me quite in time to make it into the proposal:

This year (2019) witnessed the official launch of the NileTESOL Interactive Webinar series, a long-awaited dream come true. In May 2019, the Professional Development (PD) Committee and Learning Technologies Special Interest Group initiated a collaboration with Vance Stevens,  the Founder of Webheads and Learning2gether initiatives. So far, six international speakers have participated in one-hour Q/A sessions on Zoom:

    • Dr. Deborah Healey, TESOL International President (2019-20);
    • Vance Stevens, Webheads and Learning2gether Founder;
    • Nik Peachey,  digital guru and author;
    • Csilla Jaray-Benn, TESOL France President (2016-17);
    • Lilika Couri, TESOL Greece Chair (2017-18);
    • and Georgios Chatzis, TESOL Greece Chair (2018-19).

Hanaa Khamis,  NileTESOL PD Chair and LTSIG Co-coordinator has interviewed these distinguished TESOL experts about topics of interest to NileTESOL community members,  e.g. being a teacher researcher, gamification, publishing ESOL materials, empathy in the classroom, literature and language learning, and desensitizing students in the age of YouTube. Vance Stevens has kindly supported this series with his amazing technical and professional expertise through his Zoom account.

My pleasure 🙂 Vance

How did we plan this thing?

Short answer: by the seat of our pants.

Wed Sept 25 – Cary Torres at SLW-IS Webinar: Supporting English Learners with Disabilities in Writing

This event was posted on myTESOL Lounge in this thread. You might need to be a member there to view it.

The event was recorded

DESCRIPTION

With an increase in English language learners in our classrooms, the number of English learners with disabilities (ELSWD) is also growing, leaving many teachers unsure of how to support these twice exceptional students. This is often even more difficult with writing, an incredibly complex academic task. This webinar will give a brief overview of ELSWD and common challenges in writing, while also highlighting the diversity and variability of these students.  A framework for support and strategies, which teachers can implement across content areas and grade levels to support ELSWD in writing, will also be introduced.  Many of the recommendations can also be applied to struggling writers, including ELs without disabilities, who often face similar challenges with writing, and native-speaker students with disabilities.

DESCRIPTION: I am making a documentary film on globalizing education. I sometimes refer to the process as decolonizing education. The film is intended to be research and the interviews is data collection. I am interesting in discovering how people define globalizing/decolonizing education as well as how they think we can move in this direction.

Bethany Winslow (Avatar & Real)

CVL Hypergrid Adventure Library Tour

(Click on the title to access the live Zoom session if you can’t join us in Kitely)

Join the Community Virtual Library on a hypergrid adventure into virtual worlds on the OpenSim platform! CVL volunteer Bethany Winslow will lead a tour starting from the Kitely Welcome Center to our Hypergrid Resource Library on the Cookie II region (our sister site to the Cookie location in Second Life).

Instructions for Accessing Hypergrid Resources Library on Kitely 

If you have a Kitely avatar already log onto www.kitely.com, put in your user name and password and put “Kitely Welcome Center” into the location field and click “enter”. The tour will start there.

If you miss the tour start, you can put the following hop SLURL into the address bar at the top of your viewer and find your way to the portals in Cookie II Welcome Center and look for the Hypergrid Resource Library on Cookie II: hop://grid.kitely.com:8002/Cookie II/129/115/25 (very neat resource, worth a look at the various portals)

Or you can put the following hop SLURL to get directly to the Hypergrid Resource Library: hop://grid.kitely.com:8002/Cookie II/448/890/23

If you have an avatar on another OpenSim world, click on the map, search for Kitely Welcome Center and click teleport. If you make a landmark you’ll find it in the landmark section of “My Suitcase” in your viewer inventory. From the Kitely Welcome Center you can either join the tour, or catch up in the Hypergrid Resource Library. More instructions are available in the document attached below.

The OpenSim platform looks just like Second Life. Instead of being a closed proprietary world, however, OpenSim is a decentralized open source platform and it costs a fraction of what Second Life does.

On this tour you will see the major features of the Hypergrid Library, content that helps explain the concept of hypergridding (it’s like teleporting, but with important differences), and the space station where you can jump to other worlds. At the research wall, Bethany will briefly present a synthesis of her two most recent posters on virtual worlds in education. She’ll address why it’s more important than ever for educators to get in-world. Attendees can grab a copy of her posters and/or the references/recommended reading. In the Gallery are a few examples of immersive lessons. There will be time for free exploration, to try a hypergrid jump or two, and a final quick debrief Q & A session. We hope to see you there!
