I just finished a fascinating visit with a group called Webheads in Action whose purpose is to promote language learning through online participation. Members participating today were from Thailand, Australia, Denmark, Oregon, Brazil, Abu Dhabi, Illinois, Maryland, and I might have missed a spot or two. BDee from Brazil sends a hello to Nathan Lowell. I will likely visit this group again because the chat was so interesting…topics included world affairs, politics, recent conferences, photo editing, free downloads of technology tools and more.
I learned about the term “unconference”, which is what I think we had today. A member named Vance uses tappedin for tutorials to help students with internet searches and research. Rita, a teacher (of English as a Second Language) from Argentina and I are going to see what we can do about doing a lesson in tandem through tappedin. I’m looking forward to that. BeeD in Brazil says that she cannot use tappedin in where she is because they are on a network and all the security precautions slow down the whole thing a lot.
Most of the members that were present today seem to use tappedin to keep up on all the newest tools for video / audio and everything else going on in the world!
