Every year, we gather for five weeks to network, to connect, to have fun, to meet like-minded international educators, and to dare. It is that time when we gain new insights on how to make a difference in our educational contexts, when we give ourselves some time to test new possibilities in the classroom in an environment where every educator is invited to experiment with the many choices they are given in the many online sessions they can opt to join.

Help MadPea and LLK build a school in Kenya

Help MadPea and LLK build a school in Kenya | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it
On September 27th 2015, the MadPea team will be running an auction in support of Feed A Smile / Live and Learn in Kenya – and right now they’re asking for support from folk across SL to make it happen, buy donating their time, interest and talents.

The focus of the auction comes by way of Feed A Smile. You may recognise the name from things like The Drax Files World Makers episode #16. At its heart, Feed A Smile, organised and run by Brique Topaz (Brique Zeiner in the physical world) provides nutritious warm lunches for over 400 children every day, paid for entirely from donations to the project. Over a third of the money directed at the programme comes from donations received within Second Life.

English Idioms and their Meanings

Having recently moved to Brazil, learning a new language and also teaching English, has made me think more about the English language. When I stopped to think about some English idioms and their literal meaning, I found some of them very funny and thought it would be a nice idea to pick a few of the most common idioms and illustrate them.
Dr. Doris Molero's insight:

This is a great idea to use with graphic design students. Our next project will be to create a book of idioms in English and Spanish to promote a culture of peace.

Watch Apollo 16 astronaut General Charlie Duke walk on the moon again inside our Apollo 11 Experience. - Immersive VR Education, Virtual Reality Education, VR, Educational Experiences

Watch Apollo 16 astronaut General Charlie Duke walk on the moon again inside our Apollo 11 Experience. - Immersive VR Education, Virtual Reality Education, VR, Educational Experiences | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it
On Saturday 18th of July Apollo 16 astronaut General Charlie Duke attended the opening of the Gateway to Space exhibition in Brussels where Immersive VR Education had a virtual reality installation of our upcoming Apollo 11 experience.


General Charlie Duke walked on the moon in 1972 and was lunar module pilot for the Apollo 16 mission where he spent three days on the moons surface.  General Duke also served as CAPCOM for Apollo 11, the first landing on the Moon, where his distinctive Southern drawl became familiar to audiences around the world. As CAPCOM, he became the voice of a Mission Control nervous by a long landing that almost expended all of the Lunar Module Eagle’s fuel. Dukes first words to the Apollo 11 crew on the surface of the Moon were flustered, “Roger, Twank… Tranquility, we copy you on the ground. You got a bunch of guys about to turn blue. We’re breathing again. Thanks a lot!”

Charlie was also part of the backup crew for Apollo 13 before finally getting his own mission on Apollo 16.

The Drax Files: World Makers [ Episode 16: Feed A Smile] - YouTube

"A child in Kenya can eat today because your avatar gave 100 Linden Dollars at this concert!"

For Brique Topaz, who runs the Germany based non-profit "Live and Learn in Kenya", a statement like the above is nothing at all out of the ordinary: little bits of virtual currency from an online world, donated by avatars who listen to musicians represented by pixels helps pay for children in impoverished slums outside of Nairobi - makes total sense!

Open now at Luna Isle, Strings is perhaps the most marvellous installation she has yet produced in a very long line of outstanding works created within Second Life; it’s a magnificent example of why I am so attracted to her art.

Idioms in pictures

I created this series of images depicting idioms in pictures. I have 47 images in all and I'm trying to get it published to be a coffee table book. Most images are composites made from several images.
Dr. Doris Molero's insight:

This is another great resource to use in class. You can have your student look at the photos and discuss the idioms they represents. Students can work in pairs searching for info on google on the use of the idioms and write sentences using them.

Dr. Doris Molero's insight:

Incremento del uso del aprendizaje mixto o híbrido Tendencia a corto plazo: Conlleva cambios en la Educación Superior en los próximos uno o dos años En los últimos años, la percepción de aprendizaje en línea ha ido cambiando a su favor, a medida que más estudiantes y educadores la ven como una alternativa viable para algunas formas de aprendizaje presencial. A partir de las mejores prácticas en los métodos en línea y presenciales, el aprendizaje híbrido (Blended Learning) está en aumento en las universidades y escuelas. Las posibilidades que ofrece el blended learning se comprenden muy bien hoy en día, así como su flexibilidad, facilidad de acceso e integración de elementos multimedia y tecnologías sofisticadas se encuentran en lo alto de su lista de atractivos. Recientes desarrollos de modelos de negocio para las universidades están subiendo la apuesta de la innovación en estos entornos digitales, que son ampliamente considerados como maduros para nuevas ideas, servicios y productos. Mientras crecen de manera constante, el reciente enfoque en muchos círculos de la educación en el rápido aumento y desgaste de los cursos masivos abiertos online (MOOCs) ha llevado a la idea de que este tipo de ofertas pueden ser una moda similar. Sin embargo, los avances en el análisis del aprendizaje, el aprendizaje adaptativo y una combinación de herramientas síncronas y asíncronas de vanguardia seguirán avanzando el estado de aprendizaje en línea y la mantendrá convincente, aunque muchos de estos métodos sigan siendo sujeto de experimentos e investigaciones por parte de proveedores de aprendizaje en línea e instituciones de educación superior.
