Becoming a Webhead 2006 Webcast

Becoming a Webhead 2006 Webcast
Jan. 29, 2006

Another very international webcast with the Webheads.  In this case, hosted by Hala & Leanne as part of the Becoming a  Webhead Session of TESOL’s CALL Interest Section’s Electronic Village Online. The show included discussion of what goes on ‘behind the curtain’ of the Worldbridges webcasting machine and how this kind of webcasting can be used in teaching English (or other languages) as a Foreign Language.

JeanMichel Snowing in Barcelona?
GrahamStanley they should introduce themselves rffat
ESLBruce   Are you going to talk about the mechanics to webcasting and plugging in Skype?
GrahamStanley that's the only way
Cristina_Costa it's quite cold although
Nina   Since YM conferences can accommodate lots of people,
why did you choose to use Skype today instead of YM?
Cristina_Costa I almost frozen when I got out the house this morning!
Cristina_Costa brrrrr!
Leanne   I'm thinking to introduce webcasting/podcasting Nina
ESLBruce   The audio quality is much better in Skype.

DougSymington Moira, I've never been able to get more than 2 cameras to work in Skype
acfavaverde ok so who called me on skype? was that u Chris?
dave-on-air viday - it crashes
Barbara-in-Ohio Skype is stable but only if your network can allow it
Cristina_Costa I don't think so
Cristina_Costa if I did I didn't mean it!
Moira   Thanks Doug
GrahamStanley ESLBruce, I think you'd need a week for Jeff and Dave
to be able to tell you the answer to that one
Cristina_Costa yeah! we experienced that today!
Ilse   how do you make the connection between skype and worlbridges at the same time?
dave-on-air hi barbara

Daf   so so, Barbara, thanks
Leanne   Good question Scott

Berta   :I have tried several times
SusWebhead she has even recorded aOdeo for us to learn
Cristina_Costa :D
albastrica421 where does podcasting come from? can anybody answer me? i would like to know.
Barbara-in-Ohio one does not have to broadcast skype calls as Jeff and Dave
are doing to benefit from them as a learning tool
cecirobleda jeff could you explain how to skype in again, because
Analia, one of our BaWers, has just logged in
(she's been having some trouble listening to the webcast
)and missed that explanation?
DougSymington we hear it here too
Barbara-in-Ohio it is possible to record a two way conversation in Skype and then listen to that
Daf   hi Erika
DougSymington Barbara--yes with Audacity
SusWebhead it does NOT rhyme on Ruth
erikacruvinel Hi Daf. I am glad I found you.
cecirobleda I think analia has skyped off
ESLBruce   Do you do that successfully, Barbara? I have the Skype session crash when I tried it in Audacity.
erikacruvinel Sorry for all the mess.
KatUrbaniak Ipod + broadcast = podcast
Daf   yes, you finally made it here, Erika :-)
lainemarsh 199 people in our group and he responds to any and all of them
Hala_Sudan how can I mute the welcoming messages sound?
Barbara-in-Ohio ESL Bruce:Mac or PC
teresadeca he will on tuesday
Cristina_Costa check podcast here :
Daf   Michael's session at YM was recorded using Audacity
paxi06   OK how do I copy thi s address???
albastrica421 but what about ipod please?
cecirobleda nobody is graham!!!!
cecirobleda lol
Cristina_Costa just click on it
lainemarsh we are active!!!
SusWebhead we would need also a Staying Alive Webheads session soon
paxi06   Ok it does not work
Cristina_Costa very active!!!!
paxi06   no popups???
KatUrbaniak an ipod is an mp3 player
cecirobleda lol
Daf   iPod is a brand for Apple MP3 player
lainemarsh podomatic vs. odeo the fight begins
SusWebhead yes,PodOmatic is simlpe
albastrica421 thanks a lot!
cecirobleda right sus!!
Leanne   What is that, Sus? Staying Alive" webheads?"
Nina   Is there a plan for this conference? It seems to be rambling all over the place!
dave-on-air hi nina...
Leanne   yes, Nina, I agree
SusWebhead do you know , green peas grow in small pods
dave-on-air it's a webcasting q&a
christinLo   Hala, I'm interested too, how can we mute this sounds?
teresadeca graham, you need to listen to the podcast in my students' blog
dave-on-air supposedly
ESLBruce   Maybe we are distracting them...I didn't help with my question...
Daf   Nina, this session is for you to get acquainted with webcasting
carlaarena tere, i loved your student's podcast!
scott-n-tokyo I thought it was Sunday 5th at 23:00 Tokyo time.
Daf   hi Dennis, welcome!
Nina   It seems pretty similar to other events we've had.
teresadeca i know, carla. i saw your enthusiastic post. tks
JeffLebow   No distraction at all Bruce.... Sorry I couldn't answer more clearly
Dennis   Worldbridges hugs.
teresadeca lisbon hugs, dennis :-)
carlaarena I would be glad to be part of this group, graham!!!
Cristina_Costa (((( Dennis)))))
analiad   (((Dennis)))
ESLBruce   It was fairly clear, Jeff.
cecirobleda in that case you'd ahve to convert webcasts into podcasts, right?
Nina   How do people use webcasting with ESL classes?
GrahamStanley thanks carla
Nina   (or EFL)
Leanne   good question NIna, you read my mind
Daf   you can bring guest speakers, Nina
teresadeca nina, imagine a class in a live session with teachers all over the world!
Daf   you can have students present online for an audience abroad
Leanne   thanks Dave
teresadeca or with peers
carlaarena i think you could have students from different parts of the world interacting.
Nina   How would you arrange this? Who has time to do it?
cecirobleda that would be great tere!!!
teresadeca it's not hard, nina
Cristina_Costa that would be great Tere!
mikey   i a fan of the rambling
Nina   Thanks!
cecirobleda lol!!!
cecirobleda lol

last year i had my 6th graders voice chatting with aiden and
agata thru YM. it didn't take much preparation

Barbara-in-Ohio are there teachers of languages other than English here?
ESLBruce   Rambling rose, rambling rose, how I ramble, no one knows...It was a folk song...
Daf   once you are a webhead, you will find teachers who will accept
your invitation to interact with your students
Randa_Effat I would like to learn more ideas of how do webcasts in ESl
Hala_Sudan webcast for teacher professional development ?I think we can invite Tere
christinLo   Yes, Barbara, I'm a teacher of French!
teresadeca nat king cole, right, bruce?
teresadeca isn't this a good example today, hala?
Daf   We have to use our imagination on how to integrate technology in our courses
Hala_Sudan yes
mmvmaru   I lost the audio, let me try to get it again
teresadeca i accept the invitation, hal. gladly
Cristina_Costa heheeh
lainemarsh just call her Buth
Daf   Buth has asked to be called Buthaina, Laine
Leanne   HI Christine (Lombaerts)
cecirobleda can you turn webcasts into podcasts?
scott-n-tokyo Webcast ESL/EFL Karaoke - it can't miss!
christinLo   Hi Leanne!
ESLBruce   Right....not really a folk song...
Lucy   bye
vidaypaz   Bruce: you should invite Carolyn Graham to one of these
Nina   So it's up to us to figure out how to use it...
dave-on-air cecir - yes, this will be a podcast when we'red one
carlaarena I had that experience with susan gaer in Skype.
Students asked me questions about brazilian food and I answered and sent files with photos.
ESLBruce   Jazz chants?
cecirobleda thanks dave!
Ilse   What's your opinion about videopodcasts? what are the best for EFL classes?
vidaypaz   yes
Randa_Effat are there databases with podcasts with native speakes voices
that can be drawn upon in the language classroom
Daf   if the webcast is recorded as mp3,you can, Cecilia
teresadeca we've done live webcasts with students at alado, too
ESLBruce   Yes!
dave-on-air randa - many
SusWebhead I think people do need to know how to use it themselves before working with students
Nina   I'm not very clear as to how one would set up a webcast--
other than a Skype conference but as you point out that limits participants to 5.
Daf   RAnda, I have invited webheads to record podcasts for my students
carlaarena yes, randa. there are tons of podcast that you can use in the classroom!
teresadeca randa, take a look at my OLE page for that
Nina   How can more than 5 people hear the conference, as we are doing here?
DougSymington in many cases, students may be able to show educators how to make audio files,
then it's a matter of posting them....
Nina   Do you need a place" like Worldbridges to do this?"
Leanne   Nina, only 5 can be in the Skype conference, to talk
Barbara-in-Ohio Buthaina and I will be doing ESL/Arabic exchanges this semester...
here is a link to what we have done thus far:
teresadeca take a look her, randa
carlaarena podcastalley
Nina   I presume there will be a summary of this with links later...
Leanne   hahaha Carla
paxi06   Atiil I calnnot copy wed addresses
DougSymington Nina, you'd need to stream from a server, so yes for more to hear you'd need a server
paxi06   neither can I click on them
a_lewan   I use npr and BBC archives and record the stream in Audacity. Problem: copyright.
SusWebhead there's a podcast directory
ESLBruce   click on them and another window opens. Then you can bookmark them
Nina   We have our own server in our multimedia lab. Could one theoretically set it up there?
SusWebhead but this is not for edcation only
Barbara-in-Ohio David Warlick's EPN:
dave-on-air nina - yes you can
Randa_Effat barabara, Buth I am arabic speaking as well, if there is anything I can help out with,
DougSymington Nina, yes
SusWebhead WE LOVE you Worldbridges
ESLBruce   But you do need a dedicated server ,and not just a host?
Barbara-in-Ohio yes Randa! where are you located?
dave-on-air doug - too slow
SusWebhead rent-a-stream! sounds smart
Nina   We have two wonderful tech assistants in our lab...
Assuming they don't already know how to set it up, where could they find out?
vidaypaz   Bruce, anotther window doesn't oopen for me...
I only get a blocked popup message...when I click on it it logs me out of the Worldbridges chatroom
Dennis   Who are you - i.e. World Bridges? (Public?)
JeffLebow   Not sure what you mean Dennis?
ESLBruce   Oh...I guess that's your browser setting...I am in Firefox.
elderbob   Hello, all.
teresadeca and there's a lot of text flying!!!
Barbara-in-Ohio are we supposed to move to another room if we have specific questions?
Nina   I feel that it's very challenging to concentrate on the actual
talk while also following the chatroom life"."
SusWebhead do you really have six chat rooms ?
Barbara-in-Ohio yes Nina
Dennis   I mean is World Bridges part of an organisation, part of a university?
SusWebhead Nina,you will learn that
cecirobleda yes, nina.. it's hard for me too!
SusWebhead I've been away for a while
DougSymington but I'm giving bad info ;)
Nina   If it's tough for me to multi-task like this, how much tougher it must be
for non-native English speakers. Kudos to all of you!
ESLBruce   Yes, I admire you!
