On Sun Aug 31 Learning2gether was honored to meet with Dawn Bikowski discussing gaming and language learning

Dawn discussed projects she’s working on for teacher training by putting digital gaming into her MA teacher training courses, including pedagogical grammar and teaching reading & writing. She also talked about her experiences as lead author of the teacher’s manual for the digital game Trace Effects, which she did for the U.S. Department of State.

Dawn mentioned using Aurasma with teacher trainees in her discussion with us. On YouTube you can see many examples of what Aurasma does; e.g., http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GBKy-hSedg8 and she explained in greater detail in her talk at the CALL-IS and IATEFL LTSIG webinar on Gaming and Gamification on Jun 14 this year, where she spent 10 minutes talking about Aurasma and how she uses it to help teachers experience games.

Dear Readers,

I’m not sure when it happened, but my blog subscription increased from 100+ to 700+ readers! Thank you very much for your readership. My blog is my landing strip to all of my projects, so I take great care in keeping it up-to-date. It also reflects my learning curve, as I post my homework assignments from my doctoral studies in instructional design. It’s very encouraging to know that all my effort in sharing is actually being received.  To celebrate, I thought I’d share a festive machinima I filmed at a cast party in Second Life. I’m the cat avatar. Enjoy!

Greetings!

12 Jul

I’ve been wanting to create my own blog for some time now.  Currently, I blog for a nonprofit, and I have to follow their mission statement with each thought.  I’m excited about talking to other educators about integrating technology into the classroom. My other blog had limited widgets and plugin capability, so I’m thrilled to finally cross over to the wonderful world of WordPress.com and all its technological temptations!

I also look forward to working with my future students on this blog.  I’ve envied other teachers’ blogs long enough; it’s time for me to make my own classroom blogspot.  At the eve of my new teaching/learning curve, I lift my glass of ginger ale and toast the beginning of blogging for my teaching career.  I can only promise that I’ll be consistent in trying to educate and challenge both myself, other teachers, and my students.
