Barbara Ganley and her student , Lizzie and I along with one of my students, Evie, are all about to head off to the Educause Learning Inititiative Annual Meeting in Atlanta, GA where we are (all four of us) presenting on the topic of using blogs and Skype in the classroom to create communities of learners and as a means of promoting cultural literacy through our classrooms.
Evie just posted her first attempt at her portion of the presentation here.
Here is my first whack at trying to encapsulate, in 7 minutes or less, all of the things we accomplished (and also left undone!) in HISP 305 last semester. Have a listen. Excuse the raspy voice (I’m tired). Give me feedback.
Addendum: Here is take two.
It’s 10 minutes long but I think it covers the theoretical underpinnings that motivated the use of the technology in HISP 305, the results, the implications, and how it changed my teaching …
I may have confused Paolo Freire and Pierre Levy towards the end. Apologies. Comments?
