I have to excuse myself for a late dinner. It's 8:43 p.m. here.
I'll be back.
21 hours ago
Just realized, I should exit the HOA to make room for more people. So I'll do that.
21 hours ago
OK I'm here now too :o)
21 hours ago
Ha ha I've taught that lesson many times :o)
21 hours ago
But this would have added so much more to the learning experience. Great idea Chris.
21 hours ago

Zi, enter where? the hangout?
21 hours ago
  
 
 
yes
21 hours ago
I like the idea of having a repository of students´performances a sort of archive of progress, could be highly motivating
21 hours ago
Yes, I agree with you Maria. I've been trying to keep them in a googledrive file but want something for the sts to record and keep themselves. As a backup to what I keep.
21 hours ago
How do you encourage students to listen to themselves or each other?

Does hangout not provide a chat for those who are not directly in the hangout?
21 hours ago
Nellie it does.. I know .. because I just tried it .. but I don't think anyone is checking it. Thus I'm now here :-)
Question - Are there any issues with protecting student privacy.. Do students ever have reservations about posting their recording to the general "public"? Perhaps you use this as a motivator to get them involved ... authentic recordings.
21 hours ago
Good question James...private setting would be good. I'll have a look later.
21 hours ago
thx
21 hours ago
Do the students have control over the recordings? Can they delete them afterwards?
21 hours ago
James, can you add your comment in the google hangout chat?
21 hours ago
Will try again.
21 hours ago
can you com here nellie?
20 hours ago
OK I'll have a look later. At the moment I'm using google drive to store 15 minute conversations which both student & myself have access to.
20 hours ago
My first EVO session was on Podcasting and there we used Podomatic
20 hours ago
I bring it up because it can be an issue. A student not wanting it to be "public" because of concerns that someone could be judging them on the quality of their learning or development.
.. an employer or colleague
20 hours ago
yes, students are very self conscious about their performances, one of them told me: You can burn it now!
20 hours ago
Sorry I didn't get here earlier... and my apologies if I ended up bringing up issues that you may have already addressed .
20 hours ago
Yes, we share a lot of stories about our lives & don't want these public.
20 hours ago
jim we're going on yr thrad, good one
thread
20 hours ago
Yes, that's true Chris. Can you add the link to the review you wrote on google play please. I can 'google' it but this may be faster. Thanks
20 hours ago
Just think that "public" vs "private" becomes a wonderful authentic teaching / learning moment .. and authentic "discussion" point for students to be motivated to talk to.
20 hours ago
You'll need to get a PHD student to get involved.
20 hours ago
Just curious.. how would a student know how to prepare and "succeed" in such "speaking exercises"? How to motivate them to attempt.. ?
20 hours ago
.. so should the focus be more on communicating an idea.. rather than on exact pronunciation? The pronunciation is rated according to how much it supports the communication of an idea.
20 hours ago
Like what Rita is saying.

Great presentation Chris - thank you.
20 hours ago
Best wishes gentlemen.. Many thanks for sharing..
20 hours ago
Thanks to you too Sabrina..
20 hours ago
Thanks Chris, Vance & Bobbie & all the rest of you. Chris see you in September at the British Council conference :o)
20 hours ago
That was funny I was stuck & couldn't leave. Enjoy Barcelona & see you guys online soon.
20 hours ago
James. That's what my summer project is about.. recorded conversations via skype but my mini mountain is to create some sort of tasks for sts to listen to the recordings and learn how to evaluate their progress. Not sure where to start but have the summer off work to get this going.
20 hours ago
Nice one Thomas oops I mean Nellie :o)
20 hours ago
Oops, it turned out I left our much of the chat. Sorry... :(

Learning2gether with Vance Stevens and Sabrina Wilson prior to the CALL Research Conf in Tarragona July 6-8

Sunday July 5, 2015 1400 GMT

 
What was it about? 
 
Sabrina Wilson often attends Learning2gether Hangout events, and she mentioned at a recent one that she lived in Altafulla on the coast of Spain between Barcelona and Tarragona. On Sunday July 5 Vance will be in Spain for the XVII International CALL Research Conference in Tarragona and Sabrina invited my wife and me to stop off at Altafulla for a Hangout on Air about how we have met in various online spaces associated with the Webheads in Action and Becoming a Webhead communities of practice before connecting face to face in Spain. 
 
The discussion will be about whatever comes up, but we'll be reflecting on the meetings of minds virtually online that often result in face-to-face hookups, and of course reviewing what will transpire the next few days at the XVII International CALL Research Conference in Tarragona, Spain, July 6-8,
