Learning2gether this weekend
- Hi all,
I've updated http://learning2gether.net with a posting from last weekend on
events some of us participated in and were tracking. Salient items were
Nellie Deutsch's interview with Stephen Downes Sat June 15, mp3 and YouTube
embed available, and Jeff Lebow's delightful second session with his Korean
students where they make presentations streamed in Hangout from their homes
for extra practice in English on what he calls English SOS (Speaking Online
Show). Carol Yeager and Rita Zeinstejer and i tuned in to catch
performances including a lesson in how to prepare kim bop. You can see the
archived YouTube recordings at http://englishbridges.net/live and the one
that coincided with Learning2gether at
Jeff has another such SOShow scheduled tomorrow Thu, and he's been inspired
to expand the concept to speakers of even more languages, but that might be
a secret, since he confided it to me over Skype last Monday.
Meanwhile, I have had an interesting networked learning experience.
I'm a newcomer to Wordpress and was not familiar with the reblog system
whereby other wordpress users can reblog your posts in their blogs. I've
been warding off frequent spam comments but reblogging didn't ask my
approval, but notified me it had been done, and said I could approve a
'comment' to that effect on my blog. So I did that here:
You can see in the comments that it started with Fabrizio's reblog, which I
asked if someone could explain to me. Lucia then commented that she had
come to this post via Fabrizio's blog and went on to say they were both
participants in a cMOOC. I asked them to tell me more, and to make a long
story short, Fabrizio and Lucia are due to join us on Learning2gether at
1400 GMT this Sunday June 23 to tell us much more about the cMOOC that
brought them in contact with Learning2gether.
Fabrizio and Lucia checked out Hangout but didn't like the screen share so
we agreed to meet Sunday in Elluminate.
I'll update you on that, and you can track developments as always on
Meanwhile welcome Fabrizio and Lucia to Webheads and Learning2gether and
all are invited to join us Sunday 1400 in Elluminate.
