Invitation to Learning2gether with LTMOOC Sunday May 12 at 1300 GMT in Elluminate
- Hi all,
Having caught up to Week 3 of LTMOOC I feel I'm in position to invite
LTMOOC participants (and those interested) to a special discussion of
what's going on here as part of a regular weekly seminar series I organize
and blog here: http://learning2gether.net
Sometimes we hold our events in Hangout mode but we also have access to
Elluminate and so I thought I would use that instead this Sunday. It's
easy to reach, you just visit Bb Collaborate / Elluminate here
Keep the file that wants to install on your computer, allow Java to run,
and it should launch smoothly.
Under tools you can run an audio wizard that will allow you to select and
configure your microphone.
One advantage is that we can have many more than ten in the space, and we
also get a recording right afterwards, which I can make into an mp3 in
addition to the Elluminate replay recording.
The Wordpress blog is our archive of events, but we announce our events in
a wiki, so you'll find details here:
(the idea is that anyone can join the wiki and propose an event; applies to
anyone here for that matter)
When I had the idea to do this I thought the topic about now would be the
flipped classroom, so I invited someone who's presented on that topic
before, Laine Marshall, to join us. Laine is also a participant in LTMOOC.
Meanwhile I'm pleased to find that I have been learning about Instreamia in
flipped classroom mode, as is any one here learning from the tutorials. It
would also be interesting to discuss how we are learning on a spectrum
ranging from purist cMOOC to robo-graded xMOOC (clearly we're in the
I also invited Maria Colussa to co-host. She has appeared with us
previously in Learning2gether.
As PLN networks often overlap, for example Learning2gether derives from
Webheads in Action http://webheads.info, and there are some webheads in
LTMOOC, my thought when planning this was that we might attract those
familiar to any of these various networks of language teachers and people
interested in edtech, and all are indeed welcome.
I delayed the announcement to be sure I could come up to speed with LTMOOC
in time (I'm in a slow trot there) but must do it this week because NEXT
week there is a 3-day Virtual Language Round Table you might all be
interested in, details at the link above.
Hope to see some of you on Sunday,
