Connect and learn with thousands of English language professionals from all over the world. 

     

    Learn more on the Convention website

    Schedule overview: https://www.tesol.org/convention-2021/schedule 

     

    The TESOL convention is entirely online this year

     

    • Most of the sessions are pre-recorded, but for events accepted in the regular TESOL program, the option for a session with live text Q & A allows for 15-20 additional minutes of interaction between presenters and attendees at a given time slot.
    • There is a "view on demand" alternative, which does not require any attendance from presenters (nor a time slot). 

     

    TESOL asks presenters to be present to answer questions for additional 15-20 minutes after the length of the pre-recorded presentation. For example, if the session is scheduled to be available at 2 pm and it is 60 minutes long, presenters should stay and answer questions at least from 3:00 until 3:15 pm.  Presenters can arrive earlier and/or stay longer if they choose to.

     

    Most CALL-IS events will be 10 min pre-recorded and uploaded to Flipgrid, but some will be live in Zoom

    For CALL-IS events the live Q&A events will be in Zoom room arranged through CALL-IS

     

    Coordinators and moderators of EVO sessions have been asked to submit introductions to Flipgrid in the following spaces

    • Coordinators are asked to record short (2-3-minute) testimonials https://flipgrid.com/bfb0ef28

    Preparing more teachers to engage learners with EVO Minecraft MOOC

    Presenter: Vance Stevens (I was invited to present this, and the form allowed only one presenter to be listed due to time constraint)

     

    50 word summary

    EVO Minecraft MOOC teachers continue interacting through their 7th year while engaging one another as well as young learners online in Minecraft, using Discord for live chat and (with Facebook) as a robust community portal. See how, as the community of practice grows & develops, so does knowledge within the community.

     

    100 word abstract.

    EVO Minecraft MOOC continues to develop as a community of practice illustrating the benefits of meaningful play in learning through engagement in participatory cultures. Minecraft is a compelling & flexible environment for language learning, promoting engagement through gamified elements and through ample opportunity to exercise creativity & critical thinking. Participants include EVOMC21 moderators, teachers, & their children and students. Teachers learn from peers how to manipulate the environment and from learner participants Minecraft’s many affordances for facilitating language learning. New members in our community are welcome, and playing within a supportive community is key to learning how to use Minecraft effectively with students.

     

    The videos for this session will be uploaded to https://flipgrid.com/b510543a 

     

    I am working on a Google Doc for this here (private to me at the moment), https://docs.google.com/document/d/1KOuVdpzm0M8JvPcnU9z0nPi-l-BqNTvhM2YrmN--lPg/edit?usp=sharing

    Thu 25 Mar 1700 UTC live Q and A session for Academic Session ID 1926, titled Creating Materials in a Digital World

     

    I have agreed to be present at a live text chat Q&A session for the Academic Session ID 1926, entitled Creating Materials in a Digital World. 

     

    Abstract:

     

    As the world becomes more dependent on technology, ELT professionals find ways to adapt. This presentation shows participants in all stages of their career paths various ways they can adapt, create, and develop materials for digital learning in a variety of contexts for language teaching and teacher training.

     

    Panelists:

     

    Liz England, Ph. D. (moderator) – Introduction - 7 mins 

    Justin Shewell, Ph. D. (moderator) – Gamification (ditto on name here)  - 17 mins  

    Vance Stevens – Keeping Up and Upskilling (I made it up so change it, Vance, by all means!) - 18.5 mins 

    Jessica Burchett, Ph. D. – Teacher education (ditto on name)  - 12 mins 

    Michael Bowen – honorary organizer

     

    What will happen?

     

     

    Panelists and their proposals

     

    Justin Shewell:

     

    I could give presentations on several different topics, either broad or more specific. I could talk about gamification in online courses, including the use of digital badges . I could also talk about principles for engaging content. I have included proposals for both here. Although Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are gaining in popularity, they generally have low completion rates (average completion rate is less than 10%). Several factors account for low completion rates, such as lack of student engagement with course material. The presenter co-designed a MOOC that utilizes innovative strategies to engage and motivate learners. These strategies include movement away from lecture ­style instruction toward the use of research­ based multimedia principles such as personalization and voice, the dual­ channel principle, signaling, interactivity, and online enjoyment. These strategies have contributed to the success of the MOOC (average completion rate is higher than 25%). Keeping students engaged in online learning is a constant struggle for teachers and course designers. In online settings, if a student becomes bored, they just turn off the video. Teachers can use several ideas borrowed from the world of game design to keep students motivated and engaged. These principles include leveling, the use of core tasks, and rewards.

     

    Vance Stevens:

     

    In my segment, I intend to use myself as an example of how I have remained current by continually fostering communities of practice (CoPs). This is critical for maintaining cutting edge skills but especially important with regard to gamification, where materials developers need to understand how players network within participatory communities through their own experience in compatible CoPs where they can practice with one another to boost their skills. Teachers and materials developers need to form communities of practice in order to learn what they need to know about acquiring the necessary skills, and how to apply them with greatest effect to today’s learners. I will point to many instances where I and others have documented where this has been achieved and sustained in one CoP after another since the turn of the current century.

     

    As I normally do, I prepared a set of interlinked multimedia to help participants prepare for and later review my presentation:

     

     

    Also, I prepared a  28 min. rehearsal version of my TESOL presentation and uploaded it to YouTube here: https://youtu.be/OYOfnxhcZ9Q.

    In this version I elaborated a little more fully than in the presentation I pre-recorded for TESOL, which I cut back to 18.5 minutes.

     

     

     

     

    Jessica Burchett:

     

    I could present on online second language teacher education from a practical teacher educator (ideas, suggestions, examples, ways to get students to interact, strengths/weaknesses, helpful ideas). 

     

    This session was prerecorded to be not be longer than 60 minutes.  All presentations submitted in this way were uploaded in MP4 format (with accompanying handouts if any) to TESOL’s google drive

    The folder where we stored all the files associated with our presentation, ID 1926. is here

    https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1af1ZHH0Fji2JWCp5vKqN1kk_sCgppwQa

    Faciltators Rose / Nellie / Sanja / Mbarek?

     

    Does this one require, a ten minute video will be uploaded to FlipGrid? If so it would be 

     

    Seeking clarification ...  

     

    Here is the TESOL Conference Best of EVO schedule

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1vJGc4idBX3lo-qST4JzFiQOZ08smJtzWuXnhZYmizf0/edit?usp=sharing 

    in which the following appears

     

    EVO Minecraft MOOC 2021 Friday, March 26, 10:00 AM - 11:00 US EDT (= 14:00 - 15:00 UTC Christine / Vance - Friday, March 26, 1:00 - 2:00 pm US EDT (= 17:00 - 18:00 UTC) Rose / Sheryl / Nellie / Mbarek / Sanja

     

    I think these were my (Vance's) responses to Christine, but I could be mistaken. At the time I wrote (somewhere) "it is not the time for me to ask for the involvement of others at the TESOL conference until I can get clear on your comment:

     

    "This is just for Q&A". - I believe the Q&A of 15 min follows a video that can take up as much as the entire hour preceding; i.e. the Friday, March 26, 10:00 AM - 11:00 EDT is for the video or combined videos of each session presenting here, followed by Q&A for 15 min i.e. 11:00 to 11:15

     

    "Is there someone else from your team that could field questions based on your presentation earlier on the same day?" - Once I've got clear what we're asking I'll ask them. But it appears that the later session is for commentary on the earlier one or possibly 'ones' and I still don't understand what legs that later session will be standing on - Vance, March 8

    Vance Stevens founded the EVO Minecraft MOOC community of practice in 2015 as a way to help teachers learn Minecraft through collaborative projects with peers. Lately young learners have become markedly more involved with EVOMC. This featured talk discusses various ways we engage and learn from our younger community members.

    I don't know if this one has been rescheduled

     

     

    I submitted an abstract in Feb, 2020 and received an aknowledgement via Google Forms

    How to teach English through computational thinking without having to know coding

     

    The workshop seeks to show how language skills can be developed when the focus of a lesson is not necessarily on the language itself but more on tasks involving using English communicatively and thoughtfully. Many students and teachers realize that some knowledge of coding is an essential skill in the modern workplace, and are therefore receptive to learning more about it. The presenter gives examples of language teachers who integrate computational thinking and even coding into their language classes to promote the 21st century skills of critical and creative thinking, analysis, and problem solving, in addition to the more obviously language-related skills of collaboration and communication stimulated by information gaps and having to articulate algorithmic processes with acceptable fluency. The workshop introduces and guides participants through simple activities using step-by-step approaches, presented in accessible terminology, that can clarify for them this relationship between computational thinking and language development. The activities are set out in handouts that participants can use during the workshop and with students later in class. The activities require neither a computer nor prior knowledge of programming, only the instructions on the handouts, and participants will be pointed to repositories of many more such resources online.

    I had been invited to be a GLoCALL 2020 International Featured Speaker

    and had accordingly submitted the following in a GLoCALL 2020 featured speaker form (Word document)

     

    Bio (104 words): 


    Vance Stevens lives in Penang, Malaysia. Founder/coordinator of Webheads in Action and Learning2gether.net, he has produced over 435 episodes since 2010. He is On the Internet section editor of TESL-EJ. and has over 150 publications, many available at http://vancestevens.com/papers/, dealing with students using computers to learn languages and teachers learning to teach using technology by engaging in communities of practice and in participatory cultures.  He has helped coordinate TESOL/CALL-IS Electronic Village Online (EVO) since 2003, and has co-moderated EVO Minecraft MOOC for the past 6 years.

    Presentation Title: An analysis of two decades of EVO moderators’ decisions on platforms facilitating online distributed learning 

    (paper, 25 minutes or longer)

     

    Abstract (149 words): 

    EVO moderators have been conducting free and open online 5-week workshops in January-February every year since 2001. The all-volunteer moderators of these workshops must choose a platform for mounting each session, and the choices made of suitable online tools to best accomplish their goals can be instructive for colleagues wishing to host their own online courses and communities online.

    The recent loss of Google+ Communities, Yahoo! Groups, and other online platforms heavily used by educators for facilitating online communities of practice has impacted Electronic Village Online moderators and their ability to find robust, stable, free, and open platforms for hosting projects promoting collaborative and shared learning in distributed CoPs.

    This presentation analyses decisions made by EVO moderators over the 20 years that EVO has been in existence, and the choices they have made in coming up with serviceable tools despite the occasional sudden loss of many of these platforms.

    This is where people expect to see events posted. We also try and post announcements
    to various Facebook communities,
    and tweet them on #learning2gether


    You can also check on the Webheads list (anyone can view messages, they are public) 



    Once you know what and when, finding the events

    If the event is in Elluminate, you can easily join it at http://webheads.learningtimesevents.org/
    If the event is in a Hangout, we normally post direct links to the hangout against its date on this page and at
    http://webheadsinaction.org/live 
    Google+ communities is no more unfortunately

    What if you want to host an event

    If you want to initiate a Learning2gether event, you can join the wiki at http://learning2gether.pbworks.com, and when you are a Writer, you can write your details there. However, alert Vance Stevens (vancestev at my gmail address) what your attentions are. When I get requests to join the wiki from people I don't know and who have not contacted me before, I approve them, but as readers on the wiki.

    Up to now, anyone wishing to place an event on our calendar needs to join the wiki.  If I recognize the person (I know them or they emailed their intentions to vancestev at gmail.com) then I will give writer privileges on the wiki (otherwise, in order to keep spam off the wiki, I grant reader privileges).  As of this writing (May 2019) there are 225 users with reader or writer privileges at our wiki. The increase in the past couple of years has been at the rate of about 1 every two weeks.

    There are a couple of other considerations when planning.
    Anyone can start and record a Hangout and harvest its YouTube video embed (I used to use Any Video Converter to get an mp3 from that but I am unaware of any such converters at present that are both free and trustworthy).
    We also have available Blackboard Collaborate, which we fondly still call Elluminate, available to us on an ongoing grant from http://learningtimes.com. If you wish to use this venue you should reserve it by creating an entry at http://my.calendars.net/eslhome_conferen

     

    ---------------------------------------

    If you would like to present an event or host a discussion please let Vance know. Write vancestev at gmail.com 

    Here's a possibility, posted on https://www.facebook.com/groups/evomlit/ 

    (Ozma might present this when she starts doctoral studies next year :-)

     


    Events archive

    Once an event has happened, its archive gets moved to http://learning2gether.net, a podblog managed by Vance Stevens.

    This is done in this way:
    An entry pointing to the archive is made in the wiki index: 

    http://learning2gether.pbworks.com/w/page/34456755/archiveindex
    Whatever artifacts there were at the wiki as well as any recordings made are placed in the blog at http://learning2gether.net
    The blog has a podcast feed. You can find the RSS icon at our About tab

     

    Kudos

    Weblink to stream at 12 noon does not appear to be recognised by Firefox

    Vance and others, is there anything scheduled for Sept. 1-2? If not, how about a PLN, show and tell? Each participant does a screen share demonstrating and explaining the "what", "how", "why", etc. of current web tools, communities, personal contacts, etc. that contribute to one's professional learning? What do others think?

    Sounds like a plan there Ben! It just needs movers and shakers :-) Let's bring our communities to bear on it, Sept 1, 2nd, or both ...

    Hello Mr. Stevens,
    Is this the right wiki that I must enter? Thanks

    Hi Marouf, this is the right wiki if you want to give a presentation or host a discussion here. What did you want to do here?

    Dear Vance Stevens
    I am happy to be able to join such splendid community. Maria Colussa told me about it.
    If there is some discussion related to gamification, game based learning, inmersive environments or minecraft in education, I would be very happy to participate and learn. I coordinated a research published in Educational Tehcnology and Society. (JCR-Q2): http://www.ifets.info/journals/18_3/9.pdf so I am very enthusiastic with the topic. Thanks again for everything

    Hi José-Manuel,
    Great to hear from you. I coordinated a session on Minecraft for educators last Jan / Feb and will do so again in 2016, https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/112993649763396826671. We could welcome your participation and perhaps you could come online one Sunday around 1400 GMT (give or take an hour or two) and tell us more about your research Find our schedule here http://tinyurl.com/learning2gether - just find a Sunday that's free and we'd love to meet you online.
