Reading Treasures in the Language Classroom
"Once you learn to read, you will be forever free."
This will be a piloting project with the LearningwithComputers group.
The idea behind the show is to give voice to LwCers to discuss the topic of the month. In this case, the topic being discussed there is '''reading'''. We'd try it out a first time and depending on our post-show analysis,we'll consider making it a once-a-month encounter.
The goal is to make even stronger bonds through the inclusion of voice in the group with synchronous interactive sharing of ideas. Also, for the educators who can't be present, they'll have a chance to listen to the podcast with practical ideas that could be used in their classrooms.
I'll invite other Webcastacademy members to join me to share the roles while streaming and sharing ideas on how to best carry it out. People to be contacted: Erika Cruvinel, Illya, Cris Costa, Dennis Oliver and Dennis Newson. Special guests: Gladys Baya and Claudia Bellusci.
We could try to have two streamers, in Sandbox A and B. Somebody who would be in charge of the chat area, welcoming people and keeping the text discussion flowing. A host that would be in charge of moderating participation in the Skype Conference. Next steps:
- Define the best time for the show. Done
- Send an invitation to LwC asking the ones interested to let us know their skype ID. Done
- Planning the show; resources; links; examples - On the way
