Apologies:

     1. Jens - Ubs I will miss this meeting - but sommerparty in my ICT Club RL!

 

What we talked about is: Barbara mentioned her new educational tools shop on marketplace, SLoodle, Moodle and Avatarclassroom was discussed, SLanguages coming up, possible logo-options, a machinima strand at SLanguages, several language strands at SLanguages, machinima production was questions in as much as some acclaimed to have been interested in the learning process 'How to film in SL' but are not so interested in producing and commercialising videos (for educational reasons). We also learned what everyone is involved in: Barbara - educational games, Karelia - BCS island and the goal to get children into SL, her teen-students to perhaps visit And Arabellos gallery (her exhibition has started, the images are somewhat shocking, hence I changed the rating of the island from General to Moderate), Losairam is busy at university and had some RLCyber is taking 3 students to Paris and works with Anna Begonia and Losairam on this Spanish project (you might have to tell us again exactly what it is), Pawel finished his experiment and his research and is evaluating the results right now, he is looking forward to presenting his findings at SLanguages, Pete McKichan (with a bit rusty robot avi) is setting up an island in OpenSim on his servers and has a 3000 user running Moodle installation, Lynn is working on visual communication with her students and gets her students to record themselves. 

If I missed any of the news, just add to this!

Come join us for an informal teacher meeting around the bonfire at the Webhead's headquaters on EduNation. It has been a long time since we last met. Please suggest any item for the agenda.

 

Agenda 

- Resuming of the training program for advanced SL skills

- After MachinEVO - what's next

(cybère's suggestion) - How about discussing a self-access SL tool kit / box for language teachers willing to teach in VW that we would make available here on Edunation, The discussion could primarily revolve around

    • Who would have access to it
    • What content (for e.g.) 
      • Getting started with SL (basic notions + keyboard shortcuts, voice and chat)
      • Box containing mod/copy educational tools with instructions (slideshow board, notecard readers, huds, etc..)
      • Managing groups and space
      • Summary of what we tried: Task-based / Problem based learning activities that we can comment on (treasure hunts, exhibitions by students, murder mysteries etc...)
      • Theoretical background / bibliography (general notion of situated learning, PBL/TBL, gamification etc...)
      • Using the holodeck (activities and know-how)
    • Any other suggestion?

(We can start a google doc that we can fill-in in with suggested rubrics that we can agree using during the meeting and whenever we have time or ideas) 

- (jens) Tour to Virtlantis - Kip have made some new interesting things for teacher...!

- (jens) Info on Mashinima courses in SL - Tikaf Viper - at Builders Brewery - http://tikafviper.eklablog.com/

Friday 2nd March 2012 -7pm GMT - 8pm CET  - 11am SLT - Treasure Hunt

 

Meeting Place: EduNation - Webhead's HQ 

Agenda: Treasure Hunt @ Arcachon

Let's explore how a treasure hunt can enhance language learning, group work and motivation! A treasure hunt is fun to complete in groups and there are many way of combining the environment.
Organising one was a great learning curve, mainly with the decisions I had to make to make it hard enough but not too easy so people how you can organise one, the tools you can use to make one, let's discuss how clues can be modified for different levels and how you can manage the groups to compete. I don;t have the answers, let's discuss them together :)

I will help you complete the treasure hunt if you are not familiar with the Arcachon sim, so you can get the fabulous prize, then we will move back to Webheads HQ.

Looking forward to seeing you all again soon!
