Vance Stevens's insight:

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.
Vance Stevens's insight:

Enjoy this #learning2gether episode with Vance Stevens talking about writing with EFL students on the iPad. YouTube video and mp3 rendition are available for download from here' more information at http://tinyurl.com/vance2015writing

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.
