Dr. Doris Molero's insight:

Great options here... I think group works realy well you can monitor who's there and what they are posting.. So far, my students are learning how to us e it. they are sort of shy now.. But I think it's important to use this tool and help them connect with the world practicing in a safe environtment. They will learn how to use this cool properly to communicate and be better EFL students.. :)

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.

[Infographic] 5 tips to engage your online learners

[Infographic] 5 tips to engage your online learners | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it
It is difficult to maintain learner engagement in an online learning environment as compared to classroom training,. During classroom training, the trainer engages participants using anecdotes, stories, creating some scenarios or by sharing personal experiences. But, how do you engage learners in an online learning environment, where they are learning all by themselves?

This is where the instructional design plays a key role. Effective instructional design should be able to done the role of a class room trainer in a self-paced environment. As instructional designers, we need to keep learner’s engagement in mind when designing eLearning courses.

So, how can we design such courses? Well, here are 5 tips that help to design engaging eLearning courses for your learners.

Peer Learning Handbook | Peeragogy.org

Peer Learning Handbook | Peeragogy.org | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it
Peeragogy is a collection of techniques for collaborative learning and collaborative work. By learning how to "work smart" together, we hope to leave the world in a better state than it was when we arrived.

Indeed, humans have always learned from each other. But for a long time -- until the advent of the Web and widespread access to digital media -- schools have had an effective monopoly on the business of learning. Now, with access to open educational resources and free or inexpensive communication platforms, groups of people can learn together outside as well as inside formal institutions. All of this prompted us to reconsider the meaning of "peer learning."

Marisa Quiroz's curator insight, March 9, 11:18 AM

Lisa Congdon recently published an article on doodling. A doodle is a drawing made while a person's attention is otherwise occupied. Doodles are simple drawings that can have concrete representational meaning or may just be abstract shapes.Throughout this article, Lisa explains that there are no rules in doing this, you only have to take a note book, grab some pencils and “let yourself go”.


Personally, I find fascinating this kind of activity since we all have that voice in our head that says, on occasions, “you should be doing it this way.” And when we doodle, you can tell those voice to shut up. It’s a very nice activity to reduce stress since you have the freedom to do whatever you want. I invite you to read this article and learn some things about doodling… and why not? Start doing it!

World Happiness Day

World Happiness Day | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it
For the International Day of Happiness 2015, the United Nations invites you to take part in the campaign using the power of music to inspire hope for a better tomorrow. Join some of today’s brightest musical talents and creatives in marking the International Day of Happiness.
Dr. Doris Molero's insight:

International Day of Happiness was established by the UN in 2012, with the goal of celebrating unity and to call for "more inclusive equitable and balanced approach to economic growth that promotes sustainable development, poverty eradication, happiness and the well-being of all peoples."

 

Last year's celebrations featured a campaign called the 24 Hours of Happiness. Participants were invited to post YouTube videos of themselves "demonstrating their happiness" to Pharrell Williams' 2013 hit "Happy."

 

The United Nations unveiled the "world's happiest playlist" on Friday, as part of International Day of Happiness celebrations, and to mark the seventieth anniversary of the organization.

The UN has teamed up with artists such as John Legend, Ed Sheeran, James Blunt, David Guetta, Cody Simpson and even the Pharell Williams -- the Grammy-winning artist who wrote the song "Happy" -- to deliver the positive playlist.

 

The six songs on the playlist span five different decades, with the oldest release being James Brown’s ‘I Got You (I Feel Good)’ and the newest being John Legend’s ‘Made to Love.’

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said in a statement that the project is aimed at spreading awareness in the international community of a need to promote the happiness of all peoples.

"On this day, we are using the universal language of music to show solidarity with the millions of people around the world suffering from poverty, human rights abuses, humanitarian crises and the effects of environmental degradation and climate change," Ban said.

The full playlist includes:‘I Got You (I Feel Good)’ – James Brown and His Family (1964)‘Kiss’ – Prince and The Revolution (1986)‘Three Little Birds’ – Bob Marley and the Wailers (1977)‘(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher – Jackie Brown (1967)‘Independent Women Pt. 1’ – Destiny’s Child (2000)‘Made to Love’ – John Legend (2013)

Five of the six songs are available to hear on YouTube. Only Prince’s ‘Kiss’ is unavailable.
