Learning2gether / About

Welcome to a space where educators can learn together

 

This page is the old Front Page to this wiki space

There used to be a direct link from this page to our next upcoming event, now here

http://learning2gether.pbworks.com/w/page/32204849/FrontPage#Nextupcomingevents

 

 

 

Quick link here to ==> our next scheduled event

and full program of upcoming events

 

This is a space where educators who gather here can share expertise and learn from one another by interacting through

 

Some background information

Webheads in Action (http://webheads.info) started meeting at Tapped In on Sundays at around noon GMT in 1998. In the fall of 2010 we began holding these regularly scheduled online presentation events on Sundays at 13:00 GMT, usually in the Webheads Elluminate room at http://learningtimesevents.org/webheads/event  (still working in June 2020, thanks to a grant from http://learningtimes.com).  We also have recordings of Google+ Hangouts streamed on http://webheadsinaction.org/live/. Our most relliable index of our work since 2010 is here archiveindex.

 

Learning2gether was initiated in 2009 to perpetuate the free biannual Webheads in Action Online Convergence events  WiAOC2005, WiAOC2007, and WiAOC2009 (see http://vancestevens.com/papers/evonline2002/wiaoc_index.htm).  In 2009-2010 we moved to this more manageable format of weekly presentations to spread our convergence throughout each year by meeting occasionally, and we have been podcasting ever since at https://learning2gether.net. 

 

All educators are not only welcome to attend, but more especially, urged to share their expertise or propose a topic for discussion.  

 

 

Most of our events are in Zoom these days.

We used to hold our events in Blackboard Collaborate

http://webheads.learningtimesevents.org/

 

To reserve this room, we would schedule here:

A note of gratitude!

This has been thanks to an ongoing grant from http://www.learningtimes.com/

However with recent loss of support in most browsers for Java,

Bb Collaborate has been getting increasingly difficult to use.

We do not know at present how to resolve the problem.

If you can suggest a solution, please leave us a note below.

Chatwing no longer works (went offline), but our Etherpad has been working since 2013

You can leave us a message at http://etherpad.mit.edu/p/learning2gether 

You can also visit this page to  use the  same Etherpad chat embedded in this wiki.

Supporters:

  This series of educational presentations has been announced in the APACALL Newsletter (Asia-Pacific Association of Computer-Assisted Language Learning) e.g. on p.5 here: http://www.apacall.org/news/Newsletter14.pdf

The TESOL Arabia Educational Technology Special Interest Group, or TAEdTech-SIG, had a link to this site from its Ning, and presentations here are normally announced in the Events section of that Ning. Up until 2020, L2g events wre being announced at the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/TAEdTech/

EdTechMojo was a small Google+ Community promoting regular webinars on EdTech and powered by Learning2gether, Michelle Rogers-Estable, and Sean Dowling. It disappeared with the demise of Google+

 

Learning2gether falls under the umbrella of Webheads in Action http://webheads.info

and a is weekly extension of WiAOC (Webheads in Action Online Convergence)

held in the years 2005, 2007, and 2009 http://vancestevens.com/papers/evonline2002/wiaoc_index.htm

 

In the words of one of its participants, in personal communication Sept 14, 2012, Webheads is "a very organic community, where there is no clear-cut distinctions between a long-time member as opposed to a recent member, since everybody shares, and everybody learns from each other, and everybody takes active roles here and there" - that about sums it up :-)
