Learning2gether with ELTLive and TILL - Benjamin Stewart and Piry Herrera on Office 365

Sunday September 6, 2015 - 1400 UTC / GMT

 
What was it about? 
 

Vance Stevens (#learning2gether http://learning2gether.net) intended to join forces with Jeff Lebow (#eltlive http://eltlive.com) in a bit of webcast spontaneity. Jeff had to bow out but we were joined by Benjamin Stewart, coordinator of TILL, Teachers for Interactive Language Learning 

https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/106289715383230353120, and Piry Herrera, both using Office 365 this semester, but in slightly different ways. Join us and help guide the discussion, or listen to the stream and learn how these teachers in Korea, Mexico, and UAE approach their craft of teaching EFL.

Hi Maria! Great to see you! :-)
3 days ago
 
so happy to see the emphasis on reflection in lesson planning for those future teachers! so important!
3 days ago
I noted that as well Peggy, so important!
3 days ago
also teacher trainers as models is critical
3 days ago
 
by using Office 365 does that make it possible for all of the students to see each other's work so it's not just going to the professors?
3 days ago
 
thanks for asking my question Vance! You are an excellent facilitator!
3 days ago
 
great response! once they get going further along in their training it will be a great way for them to help each other with peer feedback/suggestions realizing that is a great way to learn together. :-)
3 days ago
 
I'm sure the students really appreciate knowing exactly when they will be observed and what the tutor will be looking for via the calendar. Great idea!
3 days ago
 
seeing the screensharing great!
3 days ago
Hi all. Trying to watch on my cell. Laptop is acting up these days
3 days ago
 
do the students get automatic notification of the calendar events via email?
3 days ago
Hi Maha!
3 days ago
it must give them alerts on their mobile devices, but I'll ask
3 days ago
 
I'm really enjoying hearing about this teacher education program because I was a teacher education professor for Arizona State University for many years before I retired. :-)
3 days ago
great :-)
3 days ago
 
thanks! so exciting to see the use of mobile devices with the students! very accommodating to match them up for notifications via these devices!
seeing the screensharing now on youtube :-)
3 days ago
it works well
3 days ago
 
do the students have to pay for Office 365 or is it provided by the university?
3 days ago
they are fortunate they have a license
it's similar to Google Docs with office apps
3 days ago
 
lots of similarities between OneDrive and Google Drive :-)
3 days ago
what is one drive?
I'm guessing office equivalent to dropbox etc?
3 days ago
Hi - I'm wondering if everyone can use the email from any provider - I guess they just have to use Outlook - but can it be used with a gmail fro example
3 days ago
you can ask that ...
3 days ago
 
that is what he is showing us now
3 days ago
One drive is the MS online space - yep like dropbox or icloud
3 days ago
woops :-)
3 days ago
 
Microsoft One Drive and One Note
:-)
I just signed up for One Note this week because Angela Maiers used it to distribute her free ebook called Liberating Genius. :-)
3 days ago
I'm glad you guys are backing me up, I guess I missed it when I got up a moment to turn on the lights here
3 days ago
 
no problem!!! :-)
3 days ago
How can we get Angela's book?
3 days ago
 
One Drive seems to really help them to personalize/individualize the instruction and support for the students!
3 days ago
can you do about the same in Google ecosystem or are there clear affordances with Microsoft?
3 days ago
Last year my teacher trainers used onedrive for exchanging files - i.e. they were uploading and downloading rather than collaborating live in a Google doc!
3 days ago
 
I'm not completely clear about what the students are recording. Is it their reflection/synthesis of the lesson or is it the actual lesson being delivered in the classroom with students?
3 days ago
Hi Elizabeth! Welcome to the merry chat!
3 days ago
:-)
3 days ago
 
thanks! they are recording their sessions together to review later. Great idea!!
3 days ago
 
by having the students capture all of this documentation in One Drive throughout the program it will make it really easy for them to create a digital portfolio to use for many purposes including job searching :-)
3 days ago
great question Vance!
3 days ago
 
excellent point! it's good for students to learn multiple platforms/tools so they can move easily between them for use later when they are no longer in the program.
haha Vance! not renting this auditorium :-) Definitely keep going! Very informative!
3 days ago
yes, and be exposed to them by use them then it´s up to them to decide eventually, as usual it all depends on the teacher, right?
3 days ago
 
great use of video tutorials and announcements!
3 days ago
flipped learning
3 days ago
 
are we able to see his blog (Piry) or is it only for his students?
3 days ago
yes, we would like to have the link to Piry´s blog
3 days ago
I've asked in HoA chat, chatwing crashed Piry's connection
3 days ago
 
thanks :-) I'm sure it was too much bandwidth for him along with hangout and desktop sharing :-)
3 days ago
we've been muting our web cams to help Piry's bandwidth
3 days ago
 
the popup is showing great for me. I changed by resolution in youtube to the highest level (720HD) in Theater Mode :-)
would love to have his OneNote link (Benjamin) that he offered
love that transparency of sharing work and comments!
3 days ago
But surely the students need their own subscription? - I just checked it's $70 / year for an individual (that's if they want to collaborate on a document rather than just view)
3 days ago
can you ask, Anne?
3 days ago
 
yes @eannegrenoble I was wondering that too.
3 days ago
ElizabethA?
3 days ago
 
great point about the format similarities with Word online and their desktop versions of Word. Interesting to hear this comparison between Google Drive and Microsoft One Drive.
3 days ago
 
so students can work on their documents off line and it will automatically save to their Word Online? did I understand that correctly?
3 days ago
I understood that it synchs in the cloud
but they open the doc in Word, so not sure, do they have to upload the new doc?
3 days ago
 
do you know if the students have actually seen the conversations in the forum?
3 days ago
 
love it! Benjamin takes pictures of things on the board to post online later to help the students :-) great idea!
3 days ago
 
this is such a great model and shows what close personal relationships are possible with instructors like Benjamin and Piry! Such great communication!
3 days ago
 
it's great that students can help each other in the class conversations by being so transparent!
3 days ago
 
what happens with all of the student work/forums etc. after they leave the university? will they still be able to access everything they saved in One Drive or would they have to pay to subscribe to continue to access documents?
3 days ago
I also loved that Benjaming takes pics of boardnotes
3 days ago
 
aha! they can choose whether they want to edit in Word or Word Online
3 days ago
 
great job explaining this Benjamin!!!
3 days ago
Pity - I'm going to have to drop out - thought I would have liked to see what Benjamin can share with us (we who are outside the system)
3 days ago
 
absolutely!!!!
3 days ago
It will be in the recording and we'll post links here. So far all links posted in this chat have remained here forever
3 days ago
I'll check back here later .... please say thanks for me .... bye all
3 days ago
I need to work on getting presenters in chatwing, set up and ready to go, prior to the show :-) (note to self_
3 days ago
 
very similar to Google Drive! Excellent demo of this!
I'm sure that's a challenge, Vance because of the required bandwidth.
3 days ago
 
would the students have to personally pay for Office 365 after they leave the university to be able to continue to access those documents?
3 days ago
 
this has been REALLY informative! I've learned a lot! Thank you so much for providing this webinar!!
3 days ago
I say the same guys inspired and happy to hear about all of this! Thanks so much for sharing!
3 days ago
 
Thank you Benjamin, Piry and Vance! :-)
so impressed with the very thoughtful way your university is approaching the adoption of these tools!
3 days ago
 
great points about the portfolios!
3 days ago
Once they leave university they´ve already got a backpack of evidence of work they´ve done, a live cv
3 days ago
 
I was also a teacher education professor after I was a principal :-) So great to be here with all of you!
3 days ago
Would be good if portfolios can imported for students to take away
3 days ago
Time flew!
3 days ago
Thank you so much for another interesting session
3 days ago
