On Sunday, Jan 31, Vance Stevens was invited to give a presentation for the ICT4ELT EVO session. As they were focusing on contrasting blog and wiki tools that week, the talk was about how Vance sets up and manages Learning2gether using the wiki here,

The discussion was about how blogs and wikis are used in conjunction with one another to sustain Learning2gether all these years, so it was basically about the affordances of each that allow them to work in tandem.

On Monday, July 13, Vance and Bobbi appeared at the British Council Amigo Center at 12:30 GMT to hear what Chris Fry had to say about Story Recording. The event was webcast live from Barcelona. Here we are setting up for it:

vance_chrisfry_bcAmigo

Chris Fry is a long-time Webhead in Action, part of the original group in 2002. We had never met f2f but he still lives in Barcelona where he and Vance met to discuss with his work with students Story Recording, a project Chris has been working on over the last few years, and posting about it on his blog here: http://onewaytotefl.blogspot.com.es/ . He is planning to present on this topic at an ELT conference at the British Council in Barcelona at the end of September and again to colleagues at the start of October. This unique Learning2gether session previews these later talks and was webcast live from the British Council, Barcelona Amigó Centre.

From: http://vancestevens.com/papers/evonline2002/webheads_evo.htm

Where? Google+ Hangout on Air

Chris’s students recorded themselves in class every day for this course, usually re-telling a story. Some of them also recorded themselves out of class (see for example http://onewaytotefl.blogspot.com.es/2014/07/how-best-can-technology-help-students.html). Here are some sample recordings; i.e.

In this presentation, he compares his research this year with findings from the year before in an attempt to measure the effects of the small changes made based on his analysis of his first year results. which he’ll be putting on his blog http://onewaytotefl.blogspot.com.es/ and on his teachers’ portfolio at work.

Have you considered using badges?
My students love badges. I use Makewaves: http://makewav.es

Maria Colussa 5:14 PM
badges awarding in Edmodo is very easy

Rita Zeinstejer 5:17 PM
thanks for the link, Nellie, will try Makewaves

Maria Colussa 5:18 PM
I have never heard of makewaves before, thanks Nellie

Nellie Deutsch 5:18 PM
What about peer review? Was it mentioned?

Maria Colussa 5:18 PM
I don´t think so N

Nellie Deutsch 5:18 PM
Make Waves is amazing.

Rita Zeinstejer 5:19 PM
how do you integrate it, Nellie?

Nellie Deutsch 5:19 PM
I try to involve students in peer evaluation.
Rita, Make Waves has a great support system. It’s K-12 now but will be for higher education in September. I suggest you
contact them for further information.

Rita Zeinstejer 5:20 PM
great, Nellie, thanks

Nellie Deutsch 5:21 PM
I can also help, Rita. Contact me and I will walk you through it.

Rita Zeinstejer 5:21 PM
thank you so much, Nellie!

Maria Colussa 5:23 PM
I´d love to explore badges too, I´ve used credly but it requires awardees to register and they are not “portable”, that
is not a good idea, I ´ve found Mozilla very difficult to grasp, my brain has not adjusted to it yet 😉

Rita Zeinstejer 5:23 PM
podcasting is great

Nellie Deutsch 5:24 PM
I used to use Podomatic

Rita Zeinstejer 5:25 PM
me too, Nellie, it keeps being great, very user friendly

Nellie Deutsch 5:25 PM
Sorry, https://www.podomatic.com

Rita Zeinstejer 5:25 PM
just a mic needed and stds’ voices are out
and having a blog format, it’s very useful for group work
Robert Wachman left group chat.

Nellie Deutsch 5:28 PM
I like movenotes
https://www.movenote.com

Rita Zeinstejer 5:29 PM
is it also a kind of hosting place for recordings?

Nellie Deutsch 5:30 PM
Yes, so true, Rita.
I thought Edmodo was more for kids than adults. Is that true?
I minute is long for many students.

Rita Zeinstejer 5:33 PM
I’ve used Edmodo with advanced stds, I think it’s quite adaptable

Nellie Deutsch 5:33 PM
Does pointing students to mistakes, help them improve?
Comparison might work
“Are you listening me?” is a mistake that I find hard to change in Spanish speakers.

Rita Zeinstejer 5:38 PM
YES!, Nellie, true!

Nellie Deutsch 5:38 PM
I have commented with are you listening to me as a response, but it never works. “(
Journal writing helps because you never criticize.

me 5:39 PM
🙂

Nellie Deutsch 5:40 PM
Yes, some people are stingy with compliments.
Learning a foreign language helps teachers understand language learners.

Maria Colussa 5:41 PM
Hey, Rita, are you going to FAAPI?

Nellie Deutsch 5:42 PM
some shy students open up in a foreign language

Rita Zeinstejer 5:42 PM
no, Maria, Im probably going to Dublin in October 😉

Nellie Deutsch 5:43 PM
I was in Dublin last year, Rita

Maria Colussa 5:43 PM
oh, ok enjoy your trip then and I hope to see you again soon!

Rita Zeinstejer 5:43 PM

21 hours ago

I like the idea of having a repository of students´performances a sort of archive of progress, could be highly motivating
21 hours ago
Yes, I agree with you Maria. I’ve been trying to keep them in a googledrive file but want something for the sts to record and keep themselves. As a backup to what I keep.
21 hours ago
How do you encourage students to listen to themselves or each other?

Does hangout not provide a chat for those who are not directly in the hangout?
20 hours ago
Nellie it does.. I know .. because I just tried it .. but I don’t think anyone is checking it. Thus I’m now here 🙂
Question – Are there any issues with protecting student privacy.. Do students ever have reservations about posting their recording to the general “public”? Perhaps you use this as a motivator to get them involved … authentic recordings.
20 hours ago
Good question James…private setting would be good. I’ll have a look later.
20 hours ago
thx
20 hours ago
Do the students have control over the recordings? Can they delete them afterwards?
20 hours ago
James, can you add your comment in the google hangout chat?
20 hours ago
Will try again.
20 hours ago
can you com here nellie?
20 hours ago
OK I’ll have a look later. At the moment I’m using google drive to store 15 minute conversations which both student & myself have access to.
20 hours ago
My first EVO session was on Podcasting and there we used Podomatic
20 hours ago
I bring it up because it can be an issue. A student not wanting it to be “public” because of concerns that someone could be judging them on the quality of their learning or development.
.. an employer or colleague
20 hours ago
yes, students are very self conscious about their performances, one of them told me: You can burn it now!
20 hours ago
Sorry I didn’t get here earlier… and my apologies if I ended up bringing up issues that you may have already addressed .
20 hours ago
Yes, we share a lot of stories about our lives & don’t want these public.
20 hours ago
jim we’re going on yr thrad, good one
thread
20 hours ago
Yes, that’s true Chris. Can you add the link to the review you wrote on google play please. I can ‘google’ it but this may be faster. Thanks
20 hours ago
Just think that “public” vs “private” becomes a wonderful authentic teaching / learning moment .. and authentic “discussion” point for students to be motivated to talk to.
20 hours ago
You’ll need to get a PHD student to get involved.
20 hours ago
Just curious.. how would a student know how to prepare and “succeed” in such “speaking exercises”? How to motivate them to attempt.. ?
20 hours ago
.. so should the focus be more on communicating an idea.. rather than on exact pronunciation? The pronunciation is rated according to how much it supports the communication of an idea.
20 hours ago
Like what Rita is saying.
20 hours ago
Great presentation Chris – thank you.
20 hours ago
Best wishes gentlemen.. Many thanks for sharing..
20 hours ago
Thanks to you too Sabrina..
20 hours ago
Thanks Chris, Vance & Bobbie & all the rest of you. Chris see you in September at the British Council conference :o)
20 hours ago
That was funny I was stuck & couldn’t leave. Enjoy Barcelona & see you guys online soon.
20 hours ago
James. That’s what my summer project is about.. recorded conversations via skype but my mini mountain is to create some sort of tasks for sts to listen to the recordings and learn how to evaluate their progress. Not sure where to start but have the summer off work to get this going.
20 hours ago
Nice one Thomas oops I mean Nellie :o)

Learning2gether from Ayat Tawel about the Silent Way

Learning2gether Episode 269

On Sun Apr 19 at 1400 GMT Learning2gether met with Ayat Tawel to find out how she applies the Silent Way in teaching languages

Download mp3: https://learning2getherdotnet.files.wordpress.com/2015/04/2014apr19ayat-64k.mp3?

What? Ayat Tawel will be talking with our community about her experimental practice with the silent way. For more information about what she will be talking about see Ayat’s blog post at: http://ayat-pdiary.blogspot.com/2014/11/the-silent-way.html

Ayat did an exemplary job for us, not only in preparing a remarkable presentation which wowed even three of us who had seen Caleb Categno demonstrate the silent way in person before his death in 1988, but also in using all available means to connect with us. It took her ten minutes to finally get a stable connection with us via her mobile phone, but she succeeded. After that, we could see how her dedication to the technique, as indicated by the amount of thought and practice she puts into playing with the rods for example, contributed to her success with the silent way. – Vance Here is what Maria Bossa said about Ayat’s presentation: http://mariabossa.blogspot.com.ar/2015/04/the-silent-way.html 2015-04-21_0340reflection

Twitter follow-up

There was some interesting Twitter follow-up on this topic. Fanny Passeport (Silent Way Teacher, Google Certified Teacher and Educator, and Bharatnathyam Dancer https://twitter.com/fanny73779583) picked up on a remark I had made during the conversation that there should be a Cuisenaire rods app (a physical box of rods costs upwards of $70). I replied that I was just imagining, not aware that any such app in fact existed,
