Electronic Village Online : How to make a Machinima for Learners of English

Electronic Village Online : How  to make a Machinima for Learners of English | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it
MachinEVO is a 5-week workshop in Second Life, for language educators to learn how to produce films for teaching and learning English. It starts on 12th January 2015 and is free of charge. Registrations will be open from 5 -11 January 2015.
 
A machinima is a film made in a virtual world such as Second Life. The word is derived from combining the words machine and cinema. 
 
A major advantage of creating films in Second Life is that they are far less expensive than real world productions, and a teacher can make them quite easily and very cheaply. 
 
In this EVO session we will learn how to create machinima using screencasting and video editing.. Our videos will be uploaded onto the YouTube or Vimeo hosting sites.
 
The pedagogical aspects of creating language-learning resources will also be explored.
 
We will investigate scriptwriting, storyboarding, and making films from live footage.
 
All participants will work toward the goal of producing a complete machinima by the end of Week 5.
 
 
 
Where does it take place?
All practical sessions will be held in Second Life, we have EduNation, Learn It Town and MOSP open and ready for our use.
There are many other ways of producing machinima of course, but we exclusively use Second Life.
To sign up for a free account and to select an avatar for Second Life, participants need to go to http://www.secondlife.com
Participants need to download the latest Second Life Viewer from that page.
 
Participants do not have to have experience in Second Life. There is a list of prerequisites on the wiki. We will provide special familiarization sessions for moving, communicating, changing avatars, camera control and so on.
 
Target audience
Anyone involved in the teaching of TEFL/TESOL who is interested in making machinima for use with learners.
 
During the first two weeks people who already have experience in SL will help train less experienced participants in basic SL skills and film these first attempts - including entertaining, instructive mistakes ( 'Bloopers',‘Howlers’).for a 'Bloopers' reel.
 
In the remaining weeks everyone will work in smaller groups to enable each individual participant to come away with a machinima of their own whatever their level of competence.

Here Be Dragons: The Ecosystem of the Social Age

Here Be Dragons: The Ecosystem of the Social Age | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it
The ecosystem of the Social Age is evolving, but one thing is for sure: it’s a foreign land. Everything has changed. The ways we work and play, the ways we connect, the ways we create meaning and become effective.

Which is why agility is key: it’s not a case of adapting to the new world, but rather a case of building the skills to keep adapting. It’s not change from the status quo to a new place of stability, but rather a new world where change is constant and fast, unforgiving and democratised.

You’d spot the dragon on the bottom right. Why? Because medieval map makers used to take more creative license than we are used to today, with our satellite imagery and laser printers. They added monsters and dragons: the phrase ‘here be dragons’ refers to the unknown, the evolving understanding of our new ecosystem and our place within it.

100 Diagrams That Changed the World

100 Diagrams That Changed the World | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it
A visual history of human sensemaking, from cave paintings to the world wide web.
Dr. Doris Molero's insight:
paintings to the world wide web. Since the dawn of recorded history, we’ve been using visual depictions to map the Earth, order the heavens, make sense of time, dissect the human body, organize the natural world, perform music, and even concretize abstract concepts like consciousness and love. 100 Diagrams That Changed the World (public library) by investigative journalist and documentarian Scott Christianson chronicles the history of our evolving understanding of the world through humanity’s most groundbreaking sketches, illustrations, and drawings, ranging from cave paintings to The Rosetta Stone to Moses Harris’s color wheel to Tim Berners-Lee’s flowchart for a “mesh” information management system, the original blueprint for the world wide web. But most noteworthy of all is the way in which these diagrams bespeak an essential part of culture — the awareness that everything builds on what came before, that creativity is combinatorial, and that the most radical innovations harness the cross-pollination of disciplines.

Susan Sontag on Literature and Freedom

Susan Sontag on Literature and Freedom | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it
“Literature can train, and exercise, our ability to weep for those who are not us or ours.”
Dr. Doris Molero's insight:
To have access to literature, world literature, was to escape the prison of national vanity, of philistinism, of compulsory provincialism, of inane schooling, of imperfect destinies and bad luck. Literature was the passport to enter a larger life; that is, the zone of freedom. Literature was freedom. Especially in a time in which the values of reading and inwardness are so strenuously challenged, literature is freedom

Why I relay

Why I relay | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it
There are many very personal reasons why people get behind supporting RFL fundraisers, such as I shared in the first photo, but also more widespread general wishes and hopes for the eradication of cancer.

When I looked at my second picture I thought for a moment.. why did I choose to capitalize the word cancer in my answer? Am I making it too important, making it dominate , giving it focus.. but as I thought about it I decided it was how it feels to me.

Cancer is not a cold, it is not a case of chickenpox – yes there are possible complications from these things, but cancer- Cancer is invasive and unpredictable. There is no set reason why one person gets Cancer and another does not. There are different circumstances that may increase your chances at getting a Cancer ( for example in my father’s case a farmer who worked much of his life in the outdoors with little sun protection he has an ongoing battle with skin cancer). There are different things that people can do to increase their chances of successfully handling the treatment , and side effects of the treatment, but there is no guarantee it will be 100% successful.

Cancer deserves a big letter, not so that we give up when we run into it ( personally or through family and friends) but so that we don’t. So that whether we have personal experience of Cancer or not , we make sure that we don’t forget about it, that we don’t give up . That we, as part of human kind, all fight together with whatever knowledge, wealth, strength, passion, belief and hope that we have individually and collectively so that Cancer shrinks, that it becomes a thing of the past. So that one day we can only see the word in our history books and not in our everyday lives.

Social Collaborative Technology

Social Collaborative Technology | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it
We were out walking yesterday, a group of friends from University, and the subject came onto books: but instead of which books we were reading, we were talking about the ways we consume the content. Kindles, Kobos and iPads, even audiobooks. There was a constant theme: none of us had the answer. We are all experimenting, finding our way. There is no one system that is going to deliver all the functionality and features that you need to support social learning and social leadership. There may well be one mindset though: a mindset for curation, sharing and collaboration. Mindsets persist whilst technology goes through an endless cycle of development and updates.

Get your mindset right and the rest will fall into place: it’s all about collaboration and finding technology that facilitates it.

The Difference of Digital: are all Conversations Equal?

The Difference of Digital: are all Conversations Equal? | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it
Some things feel right, some feel wrong, and some are just different. That’s what’s at the heart of my thinking today.



I remember the first time i went on camera: painfully awkward, the sound of my own voice was weird, unknown. A poor quality experience. But now? Effortless, normal, easy. What was different and unusual became commonplace, largely through the democratisation and spread of the technology. That first camera i stood in front of was a broadcast model probably costing $15,000. Today, it’s a fraction of that. The pervasive nature of technology normalises that which was once out of reach.

Reflections on how to keep the center solid as you continue to evolve. | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it
Reflections on how to keep the center solid as you continue to evolve.
Dr. Doris Molero's insight:
Allow yourself the uncomfortable luxury of changing your mind. Cultivate that capacity for “negative capability.” We live in a culture where one of the greatest social disgraces is not having an opinion, so we often form our “opinions” based on superficial impressions or the borrowed ideas of others, without investing the time and thought that cultivating true conviction necessitates. We then go around asserting these donned opinions and clinging to them as anchors to our own reality. It’s enormously disorienting to simply say, “I don’t know.” But it’s infinitely more rewarding to understand than to be right — even if that means changing your mind about a topic, an ideology, or, above all, yourself.
