Vance Stevens's insight:

Here you have the downloadable mp3 embed made from the YouTube video of David Winet reminiscing with half a dozen teachers who were positively impacted by their association with Study.com, a virtual space where teachers and language learners were matched for free in pioneer days way last century and developed relationships that have lasted to this day. Case in point, we were joined in this event by Marina, a participant in Writing for Webheads c. 2000 who looked us up and happened along coincidentally in this session. Tune in here to catch some remarkable first-hand accounts of serendipitous affordances of learning in communities of practice, and how this has played out for participants in Study.com over the past decade and a half.

LEARNING2GETHER with Vance Stevens, Stephen Downes, and others at the Spring Blog Festival

LEARNING2GETHER with Vance Stevens, Stephen Downes, and others at the Spring Blog Festival | Learning2gether | Scoop.it
Learning2gether is an initiative of Vance Stevens evolving from synchronous meetings with Webheads in Action taking place weekly since 1998 and more directly from three WiAOC (WiA Online Convergences) in 2005, 2007, and 2009. L2g started in 2010 and has hosted conversations most weeks since, usually on Sundays (but for this occasion, on a Saturday). L2g encourages all educators who enjoy connecting with peers to volunteer to contribute their voices to perpetuating weekly conversations at our L2g venues. This presentation explains how L2g works and how you can contribute and participate.
Vance Stevens's insight:

Thanks to Nellie Deutsch for staging yet another extravaganza, this one on blogging. Here I've embedded YouTube videos, and downloadable mp3 rendtions, of my talk and slide show (revised slightly and uploaded to Slideshare.net) and also video and mp3 for Stephen Downes's presentation, as well as Nellie's video playlist embed for the entire online conference. You'll also find here the source links to all the presentations in the event.

EVO Minecraft MOOC meet and greet with Jeff Kuhn

EVO Minecraft MOOC meet and greet with Jeff Kuhn | Learning2gether | Scoop.it

On Wed Jan 14 at 1400 GMT EVO Minecraft MOOC held a meet and greet with Jeff Kuhn. Also on hand were EVOMC15 co-moderators Marijana and Filip Smolcec and Vance and Bobbi Stevens. Jeff started us off by laying out the rationale for using games in the classroom, including statistics showing that the video gaming industry was five times as many billion dollars as the film industry, certainly not a medium to ignore. One game that has been doing quite will in that industry is Minecraft, and our discussion explored how it can be used in class and also explored a little of Minecraft itself thanks to a screen share from Bobbi’s computer.  Hope you enjoy the recording.

On Sunday May 17 we were fortunate to have David Winet show #learning2gether participants how he entices his students
to write enthusiasticallyn and purposefully using WeChat and Pollanywhere. The Hangout on Air was not impacted, but
unfortunately the recording was compromised by an Internet modem power supply failure at location of the HoA host's
computer, resulting in only the first 30 min being recorded. What was preserved on YouTube and in mp3 format has been blogged here:

Vance Stevens's insight:

Jim Buckingham gave a presentation at the EFL conference at SQU in Oman on Introducing TESOL Arabia’s Online PD Opportunities. Although we at #learning2gether could not hear it exactly, I think the message of Jim's session is that there is no need for anyone to be 'behind' in technology since there is so much support, for free, in the community e.g. TAEdTech SIG, that anyone who wants to can use to find out more about tech that will make their classes more engaging for their students. At this scoop, the event has been blogged, with a link to the BbC/Elluminate recording and downloadable mp3 rendition, and even an mp4 uploaded to YouTube. Enjoy!

Learning2gether with Vance Stevens and TESOL 2015 iPadagogy preview

Vance  shared his insights into using various apps for writing including Google Docs with students to both enhance and streamline the process of interacting with them in their writing practice. Vance teaches to students who use iPads but manages the process on a PC. We will discuss the reasons for this configuration, but my purpose at this session is in part to  get feedback from those present on how they address writing with their students in an iPad or PC environment.

Learning2gether with Ali Bostancioglu about his preliminary findings from research on Webheads CoP

Learning2gether with Ali Bostancioglu about his preliminary findings from research on Webheads CoP | Learning2gether | Scoop.it
Ali presented a very interesting set of demographics on the Webheads CoP. There was some discussion of who exactly (or at least quantifiably) was a Webhead. For the purpose of Ali’s study, Webheads are members of either the Yahoo Group (about 1050 registered email addresses), the Facebook group (about 100), or the Webheadsinaction Google+ Community (135).  The point was made that the community likely extends to a wider network, though for Ali’s purposes, this is not quantifiable.

However, we had one participant there, Sebastian from Kerala, who mentioned in text chat that he was in the Hello Little World network. I recognized that this was the community that Maria Colussa identifies with in her Skype byline, and I asked Sebastian if he knew her. Indeed he did, and then I recalled that I have Maria in my circles as one of the Multiliteracies group, not Webheads. The point was being made through example that people like Maria and Sebastian, (and Maha Abdelmoneim another participant in online spaces such as I have a Question and in various MOOCs where Maria and I meet occasionally, and whom we invited to join us in our recent GEC presentation) might not identify themselves as Webheads but can be found actively interacting with us nevertheless in our wider networks. I reiterated something that I have often said, being a Webheads is like being a hippy, they don’t carry ID cards, but if you are one, you know another one when you meet one. This is echoed at the bottom of http://webheads.info, in a tweet by Cristina Costa:
