"Take a look at this chart shared by Marc Ecko during his presentation at the #140edu Conference on Tuesday.

His point here, one among many that came through during his ten minutes, was that we are missing the mark with our conversations about learning and education reform in the United States. We are talking about teaching, and not necessarily about learning."

Free Tools Challenge #21: Online Interviews With Wetoku | Teacher Challenge

Free Tools Challenge #21: Online Interviews With Wetoku | Teacher Challenge | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
This is the 21st post in the 30 days to using the best of the web's free tools for educators series.


Wetoku is a web 2.0 tool out of Korea that does one thing very well…it provides a simple platform for interviewing someone via the Internet. Collaborating globally is a must for our students and as result interviewing can be a challenge. Wetoku makes doing an interview as easy as filling out some basic information, creating an interview session and then sending the creative interview session’s URL to the interviewee.

Wetoku in the classroom? YES!
Here are some ideas for using Wetoku in the classroom
1. Produce a co-hosted live podcast with your students.
2. Invite guest speakers to be interviewed for student or class blog. This could be something that is done privately first. Interview people such as authors, community officials, and others that are centered around a specific curriculum topic of study. Then when you are ready…Post to your class blog.
3. Invite local school community to interact with you. Students can have a real-time conversations for fun – not recorded. They could do a Wetoku Live chat with students from other classrooms or schools worldwide. This allows for global engagement and interaction.
