Be ready for Open Source Fun!!

  • People often call such things as you are doing, "tandem" learning -- where each take time to teach the other their language. In the days of skype, wikis, and blogs, should tandem learning via Web 2 be integrated into every language classroom? If so, what do you think the results would be?
  • Do you think students are more motivated when there is another live student on the other end of a project? Do you think they learn more about language?
  • There are different dialects around the world, should language programs be set up to give a variety of dialects -- i.e. Costillian Spanish/ Mexican spanish -- or should they focus on one with their Tandem learning approaches?
  • What does discipline look like in a tandem learning approach -- when you have one partner who doesn't contribute it negatively affects the other.
  • What advice do you give to language teachers -- where do they start? What are the best websites? How do they connect with other classrooms?

Links tonight!!

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: http://www.gimpshop.com/

   sharonp -> EdTechTalk: gimpshop - looks like Photoshop -

   sharonp -> EdTechTalk: freemind - and mindmeister

   Deb Barrows -> EdTechTalk: Hi, I get a pop up window on the right hand side of the screen which covers the Onine window so I can't scroll down. How do I get rid of the pop up window?

   jgarton -> EdTechTalk: durff, you can import contact into gmail

   Durff -> EdTechTalk: dfeb - float chat window

   patruffing -> EdTechTalk: so does Photoshop...have a steep curve in my opinion

   monica -> EdTechTalk: gimpshop works on windows?

   Durff -> EdTechTalk: rd button from the right

   mmiller -> EdTechTalk: unless you use Yahoo and I haven't figured out how to import togmail

   cheryloakes wow -> EdTechTalk: Deb, try looking at the icons and count over , click the floating tool bar, maybe that will help.

   vincej -> EdTechTalk: freemind

   CheriT -> EdTechTalk: gliffy

   patruffing -> EdTechTalk: mindmeister doesn't have all the whistles that kids might like

   monica -> EdTechTalk: open source rocks....

   mmiller -> EdTechTalk: love the google tools, so friendly

   sharonp -> EdTechTalk: mindmeister is just starting out.... bells and whistles to come??

   patruffing -> EdTechTalk: i hope so...i found it a little limiting

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: http://www.mindmeister.com/

   patruffing -> EdTechTalk: however...i flit from site to site and don't spend enough time to become friendly

   monica -> EdTechTalk: open source, richard stallman, think commune....

   patruffing -> EdTechTalk: smorgasbord of sites...and i am a glutton

   egoodwin -> EdTechTalk: Hi folks...Hi Cheryl...kind of auditing the conversation and trying to work aroundto work around the popup, too

   cheryloakes wow -> EdTechTalk: great title patruffing smorgasbord.....

   Durff -> EdTechTalk: blackmail!

   Durff -> EdTechTalk: gotcha!

   cheryloakes wow -> EdTechTalk: Hi egoodwin, which popup are you referring to, which browser/

   Karen Janowski -> EdTechTalk: I have an off topic question - has anyone heard of Blue Ribbon Schools or been part of the process?

   vincej -> EdTechTalk: flow charting

   Chris Craft -> EdTechTalk: http://www.osalt.com/visio

   cducote -> EdTechTalk: what was the open source for dreamweaver?

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: http://sourceforge.net/projects/kompozer

   monica -> EdTechTalk: i've heard of blue ribbon schools here in illinois

   cheryloakes wow -> EdTechTalk: opensource of dreamweaver, is Kompozur

   patruffing -> EdTechTalk: one highschool in my area is blueribbon

   jgarton -> EdTechTalk: cducote, it was composer part of Mozilla Suite

   monica -> EdTechTalk: they had to meet some academic standards, I think based on ISAT

   egoodwin -> EdTechTalk: ...and spell correctly...it looks like a popup but its a grey rectangle just to the right

   cducote -> EdTechTalk: thanks cheryl

   jgarton -> EdTechTalk: Oh, maybe there is another composer (komozer?) that I don't know

   cheryloakes wow -> EdTechTalk: hm, don't know I've seen that. which browser, explorer or firefox? Help anyone/

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: www.audacity.com

   egoodwin -> EdTechTalk: firefox

   sharonp -> EdTechTalk: love audacity

   Durff -> EdTechTalk: for digital stoorytelling?

   sharonp -> EdTechTalk: use it ALLLL the time

   patruffing -> EdTechTalk: you know how they talk about curriculum sometimes being a mile wide and an inch deep...that's how i feel with all these sites...too much to learn...tackle one or two and learn them ...then try more

   monica -> EdTechTalk: open source is definitely a good way to go....

   sharonp -> EdTechTalk: pat I use as I need

   mmiller -> EdTechTalk: my one year old is wearing my headphones and listening to you now:):)

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: But I've had problems with my teachers with going to Open Office.

   sharonp -> EdTechTalk: don't have time for any more

   patruffing -> EdTechTalk: but sometimes if you experiment you find something and say, i wish i had known about this it would have made things so much easier

   cheryloakes wow -> EdTechTalk: Hi baby MIller listening to headphones

   patruffing -> EdTechTalk: so you almost need to keep experimenting

   jgarton -> EdTechTalk: HI allyson

   Durff -> EdTechTalk: how old is baby miller?

   monica -> EdTechTalk: cognitive effort...ouch... :)

   mmiller -> EdTechTalk:  months

   Durff -> EdTechTalk: :)

   SandyB -> EdTechTalk: similar to Kid Pix  http://www.tuxpaint.org/

   alicebarr -> EdTechTalk: WE have tried implementing the open source programs at younger levels and phase it out at higher grades

   cheryloakes wow -> EdTechTalk: we are going to open source at all levels in cluding the community and telling them why?

   JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: Thanks SANDY

   JenniferW -> EdTechTalk: didn't think of KidPix

   mmiller -> EdTechTalk: jgarton i hope you are getting these links for me, :):):)

   Karen Janowski -> EdTechTalk: thanks for the links!

   Karen Janowski -> EdTechTalk: didn't know about tuxpaint

   Durff -> EdTechTalk: i can't legally download at school, so i have to use online stuff

   SandyB -> EdTechTalk: the developer is very open to suggestions

   jgarton -> EdTechTalk: Thanks, sandyb, good to know

   patruffing -> EdTechTalk: you have to have some things to fall back on that are not web-based...what happens if your connection is down...has happened to me "I don't care if the lab blew up, I need my kids togo to computer class!"

   monica -> EdTechTalk: link for tuxpaint, please?

   sharonp -> EdTechTalk: Yes, Pat, I hear you on that!

   CheriT -> EdTechTalk: I agree, Sharon.

   Durff -> EdTechTalk: i justdon't care enough i guess

   JasonR -> EdTechTalk: Would you want to work for a place that rejects you based on your blog?

  [Action] JasonR -> EdTechTalk: was listening

   cheryloakes wow -> EdTechTalk: no I wouldn't

   Durff -> EdTechTalk: overly transparent?

   sharonp -> EdTechTalk: thanks, Cheri

   cheryloakes wow -> EdTechTalk: oh, lurking

   CheriT -> EdTechTalk: Besides, Chris, you don't want to work in a department that doesn't understand the culture and power of blogging.

   Chris Craft -> EdTechTalk: That can be the nature of higher ed

   JasonR -> EdTechTalk: In the near future, everyone will be indexed, everyone will have spiderbots in their closet

   CheriT -> EdTechTalk: NO!

   Durff -> EdTechTalk: why work there then, Chris?

   cheryloakes wow -> EdTechTalk: oh, not the spiderbots!

   JasonR -> EdTechTalk: That's not a bad thing

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: http://www.crucialthought.com////can-transparency-be-detrimental/

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: The post Chris is talking about.

   Durff -> EdTechTalk: Cheryl has a spider aversion

   Vicki Davis -> EdTechTalk: Doug Belshaw's post - http://teaching.mrbelshaw.co.uk/index.php////-reasons-why-im-not-looking...

   fceblog -> EdTechTalk: Your blog is a record of your thoughts. Sooner or later they will know you

   fceblog -> EdTechTalk: Better sooner

   Durff -> EdTechTalk: 'they' already know me

   CheriT -> EdTechTalk: At this point in time, hiring committees at the average college don't even know about blogging.

   Chris Craft -> EdTechTalk: Dr. T, but they do know about Google and searching for my name

   cheryloakes wow -> EdTechTalk: yes

   Durff -> EdTechTalk: yes - sent my links to my principal

   CheriT -> EdTechTalk: Chris, that will be the exception for then next couple of years

   CheriT -> EdTechTalk: I've been on committees, I blog, and I never really thought about googling the candidates

   CheriT -> EdTechTalk: Chris, you might even take the offensive and include your blog url in your teaching philosophy

   cheryloakes wow -> EdTechTalk: I google job applicants first thing.

   vincej -> EdTechTalk: Cheri... you are sharing HE stories .. I was applying for a position at a local university about two months ago..they told me theri most udes technology was the fax machine!

   Durff -> EdTechTalk: i was doing that  years ago

   patruffing -> EdTechTalk: i talk to my daughter at college (communicaton major!) and she has never been exposed to these web. tools

   cheryloakes wow -> EdTechTalk: bye all, see you next week.

   vincej -> EdTechTalk: bye

   Durff -> EdTechTalk: stream off - nite!

   sharonp -> EdTechTalk: nite all

   CheriT -> EdTechTalk: that's right, everyone, college is not up with the times - there are pockets of folks who are doing great things, but not most

   fceblog -> EdTechTalk: Good night

   patruffing -> EdTechTalk: hasta la vista!

   dhammond -> EdTechTalk: Night
