On April 28, 2020, Rita Zeinstejer introduced the topic of
Jing: useful tool to  record videos or images from your desktop. Now what?

When Adobe retires Flash at the end of 2020, Jing’s current video format .swf will no longer be supported by web browsers. Therefore, which tool can replace Jing as a free image capture and video recorder tool with capabililty of either saving to disc or upload of capture to the Web for immediate sharing? In this webinar Rita Zeinstejer discusses the issue with Webheads in Action, TALIN, and Learning2gether to share knowledge with us on this question that many of us will soon have to face.

Learning2gether can host TALIN events in Zoom during times of isolation/lockdown if they are intended to be recorded and shared with the wider community, and if they take place between 02:00-14:00 UTC

TALIN events here are open to all and free to attend.  If you would like propose an event and invite others to meet in conversation

  1. Visit this page https://tinyurl.com/talin2020

20:50:06 From Chris Fry : this video of the sea was very relaxing https://www.facebook.com/FinnHopsonPhoto/videos/2862724140432156/
20:52:09 From Michael Coghlan : https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-47169549 Finland basic income trial left people ‘happier but jobless’
20:52:11 From Heike Philp : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G%C3%B6tz_Werner he was one of the thinkers of basic income as the general manager of the DM a huge drug store.
20:53:12 From Daf : Sorry my grandchildren called me
20:55:40 From Michael Coghlan : But UBI is also cheaper for society as a whole. It actually costs less than paying unemployment benefits and all the infrastructure needed to administer it
20:56:14 From Heike Philp : correct Michael
20:56:22 From Jane Petring : Good point, Michael!
20:56:42 From Elizabeth A : maybe you could explain what UBI is Michael 🙂
20:56:56 From Heike Philp : and it is said to be less costly than taking tax from working people to support those without jobs
20:58:26 From Steve : Here’s the Andrew Yang website where he defines his vision for UBI. https://www.yang2020.com/what-is-freedom-dividend-faq/
20:59:51 From Michael Coghlan : Good site Steve – thanks
20:59:56 From Elizabeth A : We had a candidate in the presidential election who put it on the table (France 2017)
21:00:21 From Elizabeth A : he got 6% of the vote
21:00:44 From Michael Coghlan : It’s quiite a radical idea for many
21:01:05 From Michael Coghlan : but for me it seems a logical solution to many problems
21:01:07 From Steve : I only mentioned it because I think COVID19 will have such a drastic negative impact on economies all over the world.

21:01:16 From Hala Fawzi : https://jitsi.org/jitsi-meet/
21:01:24 From Michael Coghlan : Correct Steve
21:01:36 From Heike Philp : Jitsi is only good for 6-8 people
21:01:42 From Vance Stevens : webex
21:01:49 From Michael Coghlan : That potential negative impact is as scary as the virus itself
21:01:50 From Vance Stevens : steve is dan bassill
21:02:11 From Michael Coghlan : Aha – thought I recognised that voice!
21:02:17 From Heike Philp : The owner of Zoom worked at WebEX
21:02:40 From Hala Fawzi : https://www.webex.com/
21:02:52 From Rita Zeinstejer : cisco webex
21:02:59 From Nina Liakos : I wonder where the money will come from. Whole countries could go bankrupt. Mitch McConnell thinks it’s OK for states to do so. So where would countries get the $ for UBI? If they just print money, wouldn’t that spur inflation?
21:03:48 From Michael Coghlan : Nina – it may only work in economoies that already pay put a great deal in unemployment beefits
21:04:20 From Michael Coghlan : For thiose economies a UBI is apparently cheaper
21:04:20 From Steve : If people are out of work, they don’t pay taxes. If they have UBI they spend money, generate tax revenue. That helps pay for it. I’m not an expert, which is why I shared the Andrew Yang site.
21:05:08 From Heike Philp : great input Steve, these are the arguments
21:05:45 From Heike Philp : and the biggest issue is: will people continue to work if they dont have to
21:06:31 From Doris Molero : Sus Nyrop It was great. Very encouraging to be together. Unfortunately I had a computer breakdown on my very fragile and old Mac, I am at the Point where I have to consider the tedious process of a total cleanup reinstall… See you next time.
21:06:40 From Michael Coghlan : Time for me to go – goodnight from down here 😉
21:06:41 From Steve : Are any of you using Microsoft TEAMS?
21:06:59 From Nina Liakos : I think may people would work at what they love (art, music, public service…) when if they had to earn a living they would not be able to
21:07:13 From Daf : night, Michael!
21:07:30 From Elizabeth A : houseparty
21:07:48 From Chris Fry : time to go for me,too but to have lunch! Bye everybody
21:08:04 From Daf : bye Chris
21:09:18 From Jane Petring : It was good to see all of you! I need to go as well!
21:09:27 From Teresa : bye Jane!
21:09:37 From Elizabeth A : bye Jane
21:10:11 From Heike Philp : Are you using Classroom Onenote?
21:13:55 From Steve : It was great to reconnect with all of you today. Dan Bassill Good bye for this week.
21:14:42 From Daf : bye bye guys, see you next week!

April 21-22, 2020, was a dynamic two days in this season of coming to grips with while avoiding catching COVID-19. It seems that there are online events happening all the time. In this period there were several but this week I particularly marked in my calendar two of them. Both were recorded.

The first was a webinar by Joe Dale. I met Joe Dale, and Nik Peachey as well, at the aPLaNet conference in 2012 at Yeditepe University in Istanbul, Turkey,.  Since then I have blogged two of his webinars as

The AppSmashing event was particularly memorable, and as you can see from the links above, both were replete with resources, well documented, hands-on, and meaty (Joe typically goes on for 90 minutes). Joe models an approach to engaging a distant audience by keeping them informatively entertained and busy with learning new tools for learning through technology. He is interactive with his online audiences and engages them via the text chats. He knows what he is doing and doesn’t mind the occasional glitch as he works through each hiccup. He is an skilled  edutainer.

This is his profession; he performs for a fee but he leaves his work openly online for the benefit of others.  I do the same, but my work is not in any kind of conflict with any paid practice. I used to tell people that working for free and gaining a reputation for quality of output was how I could be sure of getting my next paid job. I think Joe feels the same way. Like music you hear for free on YouTube, if you like it, you, or others like you, are more likely to engage the professionals to perform at your event.

So I made an effort to archive this event similarly to the previous two in a kind of digital recollection. Incidentally I do these recollections primarily so that I can recapture my own learning, and only incidentally in order to share them with everyone else. Enjoy 🙂


Tue 21 April – British Council hosts Joe Dale – Having a play! Simple interactive activities for remote teaching

I learned about this when Joe announced his event the day before it happened on Facebook in one of the many groups I follow https://www.facebook.com/groups/electronicvillageonline/ .

At 10.00 BST Tuesday 21st April 2020, Joe Dale will be giving a 90 minutes FREE @BritishCouncil webinar ‘Having a play! Simple interactive activities for remote teaching’ aimed at English language teachers from Indonesia but the ideas are replicable for any language. Over 600 people have signed up so far.

The slides and Zoom recordings for all the webinar series can be found here,
https://itell.or.id/british-council-itell-webinar-series/:

2020-04-24_1904iTell

The links here are to the Video: https://youtu.be/ABB-mJ3SmJo
and Slides:

Registration was here https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_i_ZfjEjvSOCP8wE9pgUngA

The first part of the agreement is for all participants to acknowledge that their participant names and comments in the chat might be visible to others. Regarding the second part, I wish BC wouldn’t force acceptance of promotional materials in exchange for their academic offering. There is an opt-out – the user can forego access to the material on offer. Perhaps a fairer choice to the question, “Would you be happy for us to contact you occasionally?” would be

[ ]  happy    [ ]  not happy

In any event, I agreed to both terms, and in retrospect, it was worth it! I took meticulous notes, including links from the text chat. It’s easy in Zoom for each person to capture the chat by right clicking on the chat, click select all, then copy. You can keep hitting select all over and over again, more is captured each time, and eventually hit copy, then paste somewhere. I did this to capture the links and to convey a much redacted sense of how the audience was responding to working through Joe’s presentation of so many tools.

One thing we learned in the chat was that Joe maintains a document called
ADVICE AND RESOURCES TO SUPPORT LANGUAGE TEACHERS IN RESPONSE TO THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK

Here is Joe’s Wakelet collection for today’s webinar

Then Joe segued us into the next adventure, Whiteboard.fi. But first, he grabbed a reader off the web, https://www.teachingenglish.org.uk/article/my-sea-creature, and showed us an exercise where we had to read a poem about oceans and then write down the number of sea creatures we found (multiple choice) – then read it again and this time write down the number of fishes (is a whale a fish? what about a jellyfish?).


Whiteboard.fi

Next we took on Whiteboard.fi

2020-04-21_whiteboardFI

Joe opened a workspace for us and instructed us each, all 400 of us, to go to our individual workspaces at https://whiteboard.fi/y4y / and draw a shark there. Here’s mine, and below my drawing you can find exerpts from the text chat.

Quizziz

https://quizizz.com/join result https://www.screencast.com/t/DwyQ0t21DDv

2020-04-21_quizziz

As the screenshot above shows (taken from my computer) some of these apps were overwhelming bandwidth with the app server suddenly being hit by 400 simultaneous users. A lot of the comments in the chat were about audio issues. Some lucky ones had good audio and were able to join the excercise, but others had echoing audio, couldn’t hear the audio, or as in my case, couldn’t reach the app at all. I’ve removed these comments from the transcripts to mitigate bloat.

Joe started by giving out the Quizziz quiz code number

Socrative

At this point in the webinar, some participants said they needed to leave and excused themselves, heaping praise on Joe for his efforts. Much of this has been redacted.

Socrative has a teacher and student logon. When you go to Socrative.com and click Login, https://socrative.com/#login,  you are asked to login as either as student or teacher

2020-04-26_0957socrative

If you are a teacher, you will log in to your account, where you can create activities. However, students are asked to log in with the number of the room the teacher has created for them where they can unlock the activity.  In this way, students don’t need to have an account here to use the teacher’s activities; teachers create activities under their accounts and share their room numbers with their students. Students don’t need to create accounts here at all.

So Joe began by sharing with us his room number …

From Belinda Sydenham to Everyone:  06:15 PM https://socrative.com/
From Eva Deliana Bangun to Everyone:  06:16 PM what’s the room name?
From Grace Sabandar to Everyone:  06:16 PM room name: 29701
From Vitha Venska to Everyone:  06:18 PM I used it for assessment and it’s good
From Grace Sabandar to Everyone:  06:18 PM @Eric: teacher pace
From lailatul muniroh to Everyone:  06:18 PM should we register first?
From Grace Sabandar to Everyone:  06:19 PM @lailatul: no need, just go to student login and enter the room numbeR: 29710
From Rachel Applwby to Everyone:  06:19 PM the text on a phone is tiny.. but you can screenshot it and blow it up in the ‘photos’ app
From Me to Everyone:  06:19 PM I always show results, they like to compete
From Joa Ria to Everyone:  06:19 PM very cool
From eric turpin to Everyone:  06:19 PM thanks !

QUICK VIEW (Times are US Eastern Daylight Time)

I (Vance) was really looking forward to this conference. However the times EDT are 12 hours reversed from where I am in Malaysia, so when it began on April 22 at 10 am EDT, this was 10 pm for me. I knew I’d be able to see the recordings, so I caught the opening presentation by Candy Mowen at that time, went to bed, and woke up next day in time to catch the late evening presentations that must have taken place after a dinner break from 6 to 8 in the USA. The following are my impressions of the events I attended.

From one of George’s slides
“Learning for students, learning about students, learning from students”

This presentation was a plethora of ideas and inspirations. It started with George asking us, on a scale of memes, how are you feeling:

Kate was the next speaker. She distilled the idea of engaging learners through taking advantage of the personalized nature of the medium as opposed to having to meet them in a group at a certain time in a classroom by giving them options and choices. So if for your class you had decided to get them all to conceptualize a bowl of rice (analogically speaking), online you could widen the scope into a Dinner Party:

2020-04-23_0903dinnerparty

AJ hit the keynote “Give students a reason for learning virtually” followed by the reasons such as digital project, naural phenomenon, empathy, problem awareness, geeky interest, etc.  I think the relevant list might be in AJ’s slides here https://event.webinarjam.com/replay/2/qp3xosmi6i1irv4o but it comes in the form of a broadcast, which was nice of him to share, but not easily searched or clicked through (classic example of linear vs. random access).

Here are some exerpts from the Zoom chat that seemed worth sharing here. The entire chat log is available at the Learning Revolution site

Ten fantastic ideas for online teaching: Ditch that textbook

Presenters: Jon Corippo & Matt Miller and a merciless timekeeper

From janicerobertson to Everyone:  09:36 AM Who was that poet author?
From Helaine Marshall to Everyone:  09:37 AM Kirkegaard – Leap of Faith

From Helaine Marshall to Everyone:  09:41 AM I invite guests to my online classes – colleagues, former students, etc.  they love it – not just me
From McKenzie Culberson to Everyone:  09:41 AM Yes! Guests are such a great way to shake it up. We’ve used that even in in-person format. We had someone from the State Department Skype in for a Q&A in a Public Archaeology class once. That was awesome.

Here the first speaker is abruptly cut short, by prearrangment, by the overly-assiduous timekeeper-from-hell 🙂
From Helaine Marshall to Everyone:  09:41 AM 
OUCH!!
From Peggy George to Everyone:  09:42 AM hahaha!!!!
From Helaine Marshall to Everyone:  09:43 AM 2-minute warning won’t work since that is the entire allotted time!!!

From Melissa to Everyone:  09:43 AM Yes! My students tried to take their texts home with them but our middle years team had already decided that we were ditching them going forward.
From McKenzie Culberson to Everyone:  09:44 AM Oh wow does Bad Audio ruin Good Video. SO MUCH!!
From Megan (She/They) to Everyone:  09:44 AM Where can I get those Pikachu headphones….
From McKenzie Culberson to Everyone:  09:44 AM
https://www.amazon.com/Headphones-VoliBolt-Mumba-Over-Ear-Protection/dp/B07JZGN27W
From Sara Schwartz Kendall to Everyone:  09:45 AM Or not Amazon… direct to company
From McKenzie Culberson to Everyone:  09:45 AM Anything but Amazon if you have that option
From Peggy George to Everyone:  09:46 AM when  your voice cuts out it’s not usually the headphones but the internet connection
From Teresa Noverr to Everyone:  09:46 AM unfortunately, ZOOM was banned due to the zoombombing… and we have to use Google Meet…
From McKenzie Culberson to Everyone:  09:46 AM Hey, Google Hangout has been working really well for me
From Melissa to Everyone:  09:47 AM We use Microsoft Teams as our non-Zoom platform. This “fight club” format may be fun for you but it  is cutting out good info. What is the tip about recording on slower resolution? Will slides and notes be shared?
From Teresa Noverr to Everyone:  09:48 AM WE have to use google meet.  Yawn
From Heather Kelly to Everyone:  09:49 AM We use Google Meet and with use of meeting codes, you can give students the code ahead of time.  They can’t login to the meeting until you as the host have started the meeting.  It’s also specific just to people within your school.  You can also reuse the meeting codes simply by making sure that you are the last one to leave the meeting.

From Peggy George to Everyone:  09:49 AM Flip Hunt is a really fun idea!

From Cindy Gallagher to Everyone:  09:52 AM please go back to that slide on hours….that is important.

From John Dorn to Everyone:  09:53 AM Yes please
From Ms. Fitz to Everyone:  09:53 AM Yes, please show Time slide again. This is frustrating
From Helaine Marshall to Everyone:  09:53 AM Slide Wass Elem 1-2; Middle 2-3; high 3-4
one outside hour/day
From Peggy George to Everyone:  09:53 AM We’ll get the slides later

Bounce forward to later 🙂 The slides are here

From Sara Schwartz Kendall to Everyone:  09:55 AM and chemistry
From Megan (She/They) to Everyone:  09:55 AM Yes, cooking and baking is great! And there is also some basic chemistry that can be discussed as well depending on age.
From Heather Kelly to Everyone:  09:56 AM I LOVE this unexpected opportunity for the @Home Learning with my own kids as well. 🙂
From Erin Lipsitz to Everyone:  09:56 AM my littles have enjoyed the Dav Pilkey @ home resources and I have used the Flipgrid for them to share.

From Helaine Marshall to Everyone:  10:02 AM is there any research on whether introverts or extroverts are adapting more easily to online learning in the K-12 domain?

From McKenzie Culberson to Everyone:  10:02 AM Oh! Someone in an earlier session had a great rec for “feeling the room”
From McKenzie Culberson to Everyone:  10:03 AM Mad lib style – creating your quarantine name = The (how you’re feeling right now) (color of your sweatpants) (last snack you ate in 1 day that was intended to last for a week)
From Willamae Johnson to Everyone:  10:03 AM yes, i like the getting to know your kids-openness
From McKenzie Culberson to Everyone:  10:03 AM Mine was The Anxious Blue Yellow Cake


More about TALIN

This was Learning2gether episode 453 (because I attended and reported on these webinars) but it was not a TALIN event per se.

Then why would you, dear reader, want to know about TALIN?

TALIN stands for Teaching and Learning in IsolatioN, https://tinyurl.com/talin2020

The idea for TALIN was prompted by suggestions in numerous cross-fertilizing communities of practice that there was needed a space where members of these CoPs could meet online and talk informally to one another about how they are dealing with changes in their personal and professional contexts and what they are doing to help others in this trying time of pandemic.

So that’s why, being at home like most of us, so many of us are attending these webinars at this particular time. There are so many familiar names and faces in these events.

In fact, TALIN is trying to encourage events of this nature, so readers here are invited to visit our website and engage the rest of us with whatever expertise you can provide, or want to know about (because if you have questions, someone among us has answers 🙂

Learning2gether can host TALIN events in Zoom during times of isolation/lockdown if they are intended to be recorded and shared with the wider community, and if they take place between 02:00-14:00 UTC

If you want to propose an event

  1. Visit this page https://tinyurl.com/talin2020
  2. Click on “Request Edit Access” to the left of your profile picture at the top of the page
  3. Wait for approval
  4. Write in your event on the schedule. Give the time in UTC if you can, and give the time in your location also as a double check on time

You can host the event yourself, but if you want Learning2gether to host it and promote it, please allow enough time to check that I am available, at least a few days in advance.

Hope to see you all frequently online as we pass our days of lockdown as constructively as possible.

Wed 22 Apr 1800 UTC – Dave Cormier and Bonnie Stewart are giving webinars on tools for online learning

Read more from the horse’s mouth at

Cormier, D. (2020, April 18). Teaching Online Teaching Online – a one week course (lessons learned). Dave’s Educational Blog: Building a better rhizome. https://davecormier.com/edblog/2020/04/18/teaching-online-teaching-online-a-one-week-course-lessons-learned/

In describing his week-longteacher-training courses for colleagues in Canada, Dave provides copious resources (slides, videos).

“Key outcome – They got it. In one week people went from being nervous, sure they were going to do 2 hour live lectures every week and thinking they wanted to make the machine go PING! to thinking about how they could have a great class online. Like they really got it. We treated them like smart people, told them they were going to have to figure out the tech, supported them as much as we possible could and talked all day about pedagogies of care… and they got it.”

With Dave as their guide, how could they not get it?

The second and third webinars will take a sharper look at the tools available for students according to their age and grade. Those sessions will also offer teachers the opportunity to ask questions through the chat room

and since the sessions are recorded they’ll be made available afterwards.

According to the article these events are at 2 a.m. where I am, but if you want to register, try these links

Previously, there must have been a Webinar 1, and then

What?

Getting back to Sundays, noon GMT, right where we started 20 years ago, on 19 April Barbara Dieu, Michael Coghlan and Vance Stevens hosted yet another weekly Webeads in Action – TALIN hangout meeting – yet another meeting in the TALIN2020 Zoom room where we gather to talk about Life in the Time of COVID 19 and take an opportunity to spend some time together and talk about how we’re spending our lockdown days. Or anything else that may be on your mind :), as Michael puts it.

As it turned out, we ended up by talking about some of the finer points of using Zoom.  We shared numerous tips on apps to use with students when teaching onlline, and you can find these in the text chat below. Laine shared her personal list of Zoom keyboard shortcuts from her Google Drive and a video of how to assign a co-host  (in the chat) and Nahir walked us through using the shared whiteboard (lacks a way to insert images it turns out). If you’re looking for such tips, you’ll find it valuable to replay the video.

The meeting today was attended by, in the order of appearance in the video, Barbara Dieu or Bee as we affectionately know her, Vance and Bobbi Stevens, Michael Coghlan, Sus Nyrop, Laine Marshall, Doris Molero, Daf (Dafne Gonzalez), Nina Liakos, Lorena Zurbano, Rita Zeinstejer, and Nahir Aparicio, with Chris Fry and Michael Birch appearing in the text chat, the latter to inform us that we were competing with Adrian Underhill in the IATEFL Global Get-together, which was at that moment in its second day of broadcast.

Michael Birch made the right choice. I assumed that if you missed one, you should be able to find a recording of the other, but looking for the IATEFL event recordings I found this notice on the IATEFL website:
Members of IATEFL will have access to the recordings of these sessions after the event, by logging into the ‘My Resources‘ section of the IATEFL website

This was the 4th of our resurrected Webheads in Action weekly meetings, to revive those that were held regularly for the first decade of this century in various online spaces, traditionally at noon UTC on Sundays.

These meetings tend to be free-form and are tailored to the interests of whomever turns up, unless someone sets an agenda beforehand

SOFLA, Synchronous Online Flipped Learning  Approach
“for Webheads and everyone else….” on
Tuesday, April 14, 1400 UTC  (10 am in NY) 

In her announcement, she included this
IMPORTANT NOTE:  Pre-Work
– This is Flipped PD, so there are a few short tasks to complete prior to the session. It won’t take long and it will make the session more enjoyable for you and for the group!

Pre-work link https://forms.gle/nzbH5ooYWApiC9cj9
Bit.ly link:  https://bit.ly/SOFLA-TALIN

Laine has shared with me: “Here are the responses to the pre-work.
Great information to see people’s thinking in advance of the session.
This is anonymous, so you can share freely.”

In the form that these links took us to, we found two readings

Description / Purpose –
Online pedagogy that incorporates flipped learning w/synchronous interaction

SOFLA Model: Synchronous Online Flipped Learning Approach (Marshall, 2017). most closely replicates actual classroom teaching and provides dynamic, interactive, spaces both asynchronously and synchronously to create fertile spaces for learning. The presenter takes the group through the eight steps of the model, which are presented for both teachers and professional developers: (1) Pre-Work; (2) Sign-in Activity; (3) Whole Group Application; (4) Breakout Group Activities; (5) Share-out Time; (6) Preview and Discovery; (7) Assignment/Follow-up; and (8) Reflections.

The presentation was recently made on Learning Revolution, and recorded here
https://learningrevolution.com/2020proposals/sofla-synchronous-online-flipped-learning-approach

The last step in the SOFLA model is Reflection:
Use this link to reflect on your experience in the SOFLA session.  This provides wrap-up for you and feedback for me!

More about TALIN

This event was webinar #8 organized through
TALIN – Teaching and Learning in IsolatioN
https://tinyurl.com/talin2020

The idea for TALIN was prompted by suggestions in numerous cross-fertilizing communities of practice that there was needed a space where members of these CoPs could meet online and talk informally to one another about how they are dealing with changes in their personal and professional contexts and what they are doing to help others in this trying time of pandemic.

Learning2gether can host TALIN events in Zoom during times of isolation/lockdown if they are intended to be recorded and shared with the wider community, and if they take place between 02:00-14:00 UTC

If you want to propose an event

  1. Visit this page https://tinyurl.com/talin2020
  2. Click on “Request Edit Access” to the left of your profile picture at the top of the page
  3. Wait for approval
  4. Write in your event on the schedule. Give the time in UTC if you can, and give the time in your location also as a double check on time

You can host the event yourself, but if you want Learning2gether to host it and promote it, please allow enough time to check that I am available, at least a few days in advance.

Earlier Events

Mon 13 April noon UTC Vance Stevens and Michael Coghlan host weekly Webeads in Action – TALIN hangout meeting

https://learning2gether.net/2020/04/13/vance-stevens-and-michael-coghlan-host-their-weekly-webeads-in-action-talin-hangout-meeting/#ChatLogs

Mon 13 Apr 5-6 pm – Global Kids talk about Life under COVID-19

Amazingly, the email does not specify a time zone, but GK is based in New York, which could be a clue.

http://bit.ly/gkvirtualpanel

I registered for the event on the day before and received this in my email in the morning

So the time being 5 to 6 pm in NYC was confirmed, but that had passed while I slept.

Still it’s possible there may be recordings at one of these URLs

More about TALIN

Besides being Learning2gether episode 449, this was TALIN event #7

TALIN stands for Teaching and Learning in IsolatioN, https://tinyurl.com/talin2020

The idea for TALIN was prompted by suggestions in numerous cross-fertilizing communities of practice that there was needed a space where members of these CoPs could meet online and talk informally to one another about how they are dealing with changes in their personal and professional contexts and what they are doing to help others in this trying time of pandemic.

In the video, I mentioned that there had been a change to the TALIN Google Doc and Facebook pages, but no one could tell me what it was.  Maybe my cat knows …

TALIN_lars2

We needed a logo , so my cat made one for me. He did a good job, but now I can’t find my mouse !! 🙂

Learning2gether can host TALIN events in Zoom during times of isolation/lockdown if they are intended to be recorded and shared with the wider community, and if they take place between 02:00-14:00 UTC

If you want to propose an event

  1. Visit this page https://tinyurl.com/talin2020
  2. Click on “Request Edit Access” to the left of your profile picture at the top of the page
  3. Wait for approval
  4. Write in your event on the schedule. Give the time in UTC if you can, and give the time in your location also as a double check on time

You can host the event yourself, but if you want Learning2gether to host it and promote it, please allow enough time to check that I am available, at least a few days in advance.
