Learning2gether 342 in Hangout on Air Vance Stevens and Jeff Lebow - What is going on with HoA, and what to do about it?

Mon, 2016-10-03 14:08
Sunday, August 28, 2016 - 1400 UTC / GMT

We had scheduled this as a last Hangout on Air, since HoA was due for the scrap heap. However,  we were unable to make the HoA work due to unreadable audio. Jeff and Vance connected on Skype and got clear audio, so it was something wrong with HoA.

Jeff had posted a plan C at http://webheadsinaction.org/live and was able to stream there on YouTube/live (the replacement for HoA after Sept 12, 2016) with voice provided in Skype. Those who came to http://webheadsinaction.org/live were able to find us in Chatwing at http://chatwing.com/vancestev and enter the Skype call that way. So sorry we were unable to communicate this at the time (not enough fingers nor brain cells) but we did get recordings, mine in Camtasia and Jeff's Plan C available at 
http://webheadsinaction.org/live, and now archived here.

 

In the recordings, enjoy Webheads Learning2gether flying by its signature seat-of-its-pants.

https://youtu.be/mu7lP0wExl4

What is this about? 

 

According to https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/7083786, Google has announced that Hangouts on Air will no longer function as such after Sept 12, 2016.

What does this mean for us? According to Alan Levine, not much as long as you avoid "encoder land"
http://cogdogblog.com/2016/08/googopoly-game/
 
Jeff Lebow has come up with a Plan B, and he and Vance will be discussing this development and what it will mean in practice at 1400 UTC on Sunday Aug 28.


Note from Jeff:  Plan B might be an overstatement.  My understanding is that HOA will still exist, it will just be started from your YouTube Live stream page as shown below.

 


Not wanting to disappoint by having no razzle-dazzle to play with, I have been fiddling with YouTube's non-Hangout live streaming options - specifically using Open Broadcaster Software as an encoder.  Added a Plan C studio below in case there's need. 

 

All are welcome to join us.

Alexander Hayes on the Null Hypothesis: On Country, Cyborgs and the Singularity

Sat, 2016-08-27 11:17
Learning2gether 341 in Hangout on AirSunday, August 14, 2016 - 1230 UTC / GMT What was this about? 

 

Alexander Hayes is within six months of completing his dissertation, and before it gets locked away somewhere and forgot about I asked him to spare us an hour and tell us about it.

 

It won't be the first time Alex has appeared on Learning2gether. In his most recent appearance, where we talked with him about the thesis research in-progress. I introduced him as follows:

 

Alexander Hayes has been associated with a number of cutting edge education projects over the years, including exploring the potential of StreamFolio, Talking VTE, POV technologies, Drones for Schools, wearable technologies (and the social implications of surveillance, sousveillance, and uberveillance) and most recently, Google Glass through posting his interviews with 60 Google Glass Explorers on YouTube,https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLfhVHi9gqg5TLDTvvpVbI89NI5EJirTw8, and hosting the recent Glass Meetup #1 in Canberra.

 

Alex's previous Learning2gether appearances are listed below

 

I had almost forgot that Alex was only the third guest speaker in this Learning2gether podcast series as it was just getting started in 2010. At the time he asked us to have a look at his dissertation application plan entitled The Application of Location Enabled Body Worn Technologies In The Education Sector

https://docs.google.com/document/pub?id=1_TGVgWsJjbx5f0wxLQPSSjdsAluvF2Bgpnk9XMw1K4Q 

It explores ramifications of the "rapid uptake of body worn, location enabled, mobile network accessible solutions for rich media creation and connection"

 

More recently I was honored to be interviewed as a small part of the data set in his extensive research, and I'm looking forward now to hearing about how all of that data have coalesced into a thesis soon to be locked away in a cabinet for no one to read :-) and what it all has to do with country, cyborgs, and singularity.

 

 

All are welcome to join us and learn more about Alex and his always provocative ideas and innovations.

Discussion of Teacher/Practitioner Research with Mark Wyatt, Anne Burns, and Judith Hanks

Tue, 2016-06-21 13:15
Learning2gether 336 in Hangout on AirTeacher/Practitioner Researchwith Mark Wyatt, Anne Burns, and Judith HanksMonday, June 20, 2016 What is this about? 

 

The presenters have published an article in the On the Internet column of TESL-EJ

http://www.tesl-ej.org/wordpress/issues/volume20/ej77/ej77int/

 

Teacher/Practitioner Research: Reflections on an Online Discussion

* * * On the Internet * * *

May 2016 — Volume 20, Number 1

Mark Wyatt 
University of Portsmouth, UK

Anne Burns
University of New South Wales, Australia

Judith Hanks
University of Leeds, UK

 

The discussion is on the evolution of that topic, its findings, and implications.

 

Abstract

There is growing interest in educational research conducted by teachers and other practitioners in learning environments. There is also a growing willingness among educators to discuss such research in environments that are open and online. However, for some of those engaging with such forms of inquiry in such online spaces, puzzles remain. For example,

  • For it to count as ‘research’, does teacher/practitioner ‘research’ have to be shared?
  • Can this happen in non-academic ways, and why is this beneficial?
  • In what ways is teacher/practitioner research valuable in itself as an activity?
  • What forms of such research are open to teachers, how are they similar and how do they differ?
  • What are the defining characteristics of one of these forms, ‘exploratory practice’, and what does it look like in practice?
  • What kinds of support are required so that teacher/practitioner research is a more viable activity for both teachers and their learners?

 

These were some of the questions raised in a recent online discussion involving teachers and academics from all over the world. It provided dialogic learning opportunities and encouraged a sharing of insights from educators working from different perspectives but united in the common cause of supporting deeply ethical, empowering teacher/practitioner research. This article represents the moderators’ reflective summary of the discussion, produced with a view to disseminating current ideas on this topic and stimulating further debate.

Learning2gether 334 in Hangout on Air with Jeff Lebow

Thu, 2016-06-16 14:28
Sunday, June 5, 2016 What is this about? 

On Sunday Sun June 5 1400 UTC Vance Stevens and Jeff Lebow met to talk about old times and new projects, all in the spirit of informality that infuses all our online projects past and present. We planned (if that is the correct word :-) to discuss these in a context of informal learning.

We invited Dave Cormier to join us and fill us in on the Rhizosphere, which is verging on a Rhizo16 MOOC one of these days. Dave is quite busy, not only academically but at home, and at show time found himself "replete with kids" so he couldn' make it. But he was there in spirit.

For more information on what else happened, see the Learning2gether archive here

Learning2gether about HELLO THERE with Jennifer Verschoor and Ana Maria Menezez

Fri, 2016-03-25 10:27
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/
