Learning2gether about HELLO THERE with Jennifer Verschoor and Ana Maria Menezez

Sunday March 20, 2016

 
What was this about? 

 

Jennifer Verschoor and Ana Maria Menezez will tell us about a project they are working on together called Hello There. The project aims to help participants develop communication skills in the English Language. In this project, a group of teenage students (14-16) from Brazil and Argentina will be paired and instructed to use their own devices (cell phones, tablets or computers) to communicate in English in Edmodo. The objective is for the students  to learn as much as they can about the other student and the place where he/she lives. By the end of 4 weeks, each student should publish a report to their teacher, explaining how the communication took place and what he/she learned about the other student, using images/ videos to illustrate it. The reports will be posted on a common wiki: http://projecthellothere.pbworks.com/

It seems a shame to correct in Blue - rather than use the page history to see the corrections (wich is easier for the teacher too )

We started out in HoA, I joined from another computer to try and screenshare a Minecraft window from there but maybe because it's a DOS window it didn't share, so I exited the HoA from there
MISTAKE! I was the host so even though I was still in the HoA on my other computer, my action terminated the HoA
We tried to start a new HoA but we could none of us hear anything there
So, in Learning2gether we learn about new tools, and we'd recently learned about Blab, so we regrouped there. Check it out: https://blab.im/vance-stevens-education-minecraft
