About the Class

Vance Stephens will be hosting Learning2Gether with Nellie Deutsch. Nellie will discuss the upcoming Moodle MOOC for June 2013.

You are invited to join the the first Moodle MOOC of its kind hosted by WizIQ and organized by Dr. Nellie Deutsch.

Learning2Gether is a wiki which serves to organize teachers in meeting online at regular times weekly to conduct free ‘class-roots’ professional development seminars and discuss topics of mutual interest. Presenters and participants range from expert to those merely interested in the topics. Sessions are recorded, and a growing archive of recorded resources is accumulating at the site. This talk explains how Learning2Gether came about, and how it draws on and expands its participants’ personal learning networks so that knowledge is transferred informally and peer to peer. A crucial aspect of the learning that takes place there is where teachers model to one another how to use Web 2.0 tools to leverage learning through networking, and to apply these to classroom and other professional development opportunities. This talk is couched it in the perspective of how teachers achieve the aha! Moment, where they 'get' how technology can become a critical enabler of what they ordinarily try to do pedagogically in their classrooms. In this presentation I will try to provoke an aha! moment by illustrating how a PLN works to enhance such learning by getting people from other virtual spaces to join us in real time, live and online.

Vance’s career includes CALL coordinator, software developer, lecturer in ESL and computing, founder of Webheads as well as CALL-IS in TESOL, and facilitator in TESOL's online professional development programs. On the boards of APACALL, TESL-EJ, CALL Journal, and Writing & Pedagogy, he encourages people to have F.U.N. and think SMALL.
