Learning2gether about Study.com with David Winet, Michael Coghlan, and Vance Stevens

Sunday May 3, 2015 1300 GMT

 
Archived with mp3 rendition of You Tube video stream on Learning2gether here
 
What was it about? 
 
The topic for Learning2gether this week is about emerging advances in online learning since the turn of the century, from a panel who were there at the beginning and have stayed on the wave for the past decade and a half.

 

Dave Winet recently sold the domain study dot com marking the end of an era for many Webheads. Study dot com was a free website that attracted and matched teachers with language students interested in studying online just before the dawn of social media.

 

Dave's innovative methods created among other things a space for language learners at the Palace, which was where Vance Stevens, Michael Coghlan, and Maggi Doty met in an online class for ESL students that soon became Writing for Webheads and evolved in 2002 into Webheads in Action, a community of practice for teachers.

 

In this session, Dave and Michael join me, Vance, in talking about some of the very forward thinking developments that characterized Dave's work starting late last century and that have led us through Webheads in Action on up to Learning2gether, twenty years later.

 

If you were with us at that time, please join us to add your reminiscences, and for those who have more recently joined us, enjoy a conversation with the founders of Webheads in Action.

His Netbook might have an inbuilt mike and no port for anything else...And broadcasting with family around might be tricky. I'm in the same situation..Mr. Allyson has promised to be as quiet as a mouse. We'll see.

Copy from hangout: Oh, I know the extent of studycom's influence. I've had the pleasure of meeting several studycom students in real life...There are plenty out there who owe Dave and studycom an enormous debt. Mot to mention the students who met in our classes, crossed the world to meet in real life and got married.

Learning2gether with Vance Stevens and a TESOL 2015 iPadagogy preview

Sunday March 15, 2015 1400 GMT

 
What was it about? 

Ellen Dougherty, Nery Alvarado, Daniela Coelho, and Vance Stevens, four colleagues working for HCT/CERT at the aviation college in Al Ain UAE, are presenting a mini-workshop at TESOL Toronto called iPad-agogy: a Bloomin’ Better Way to Teach, Thursday, March 26, 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM at the Electronic Village in Toronto

http://tesol2015ipadogogyabloominbetterwaytoteach.pbworks.com/ (the link will go live before March 26)

 

One of the presenters Vance wishes to share his insights into using various apps for writing including Google Docs with students to both enhance and streamline the process of interacting with them in their writing practice. Vance teaches to students who use iPads but manages the process on a PC. We will discuss the reasons for this configuration, but my purpose at this session is in part to  get feedback from those present on how they address writing with their students in an iPad or PC environment.
