When: 25 Jul 2012
Venue: Adobe Connect, 3.45pm - 4.45pm | http://connect.vln.school.nz/vpldsessions/
Organiser: Enabling e-Learning and VPLD
Contact: Hazel Owen or Karen Melhuish Spencer
This online workshop is an opportunity organised by the Enabling e-Learning and Virtual Professional Development (VPLD) communities.
Join us to explore:
NOTE: This webinar builds on an earlier session organising in VPLD; you are welcome to access this first part but do not need to have done so to attend this sesson: Part 1: Engaging reluctant learners, with Clarrie Yates.
The meeting will be facilitated in Adobe Connect: http://connect.vln.school.nz/vpldsessions/
If you haven't used Adobe Connect before it would be a good idea to give it a go beforehand and experiment. This video shows you exactly how to do it, and how to use Adobe Connect once you get in there, so I would highly recommend you watch it: http://ellinzproject.blip.tv/file/4386660/. (Please note that this is a video that was made for the ELLINZ ESOL students so it is a little slow, but shows really clearly how to access and use Adobe Connect, including how to login as a guest, how to talk, and how to use the whiteboard).
GETTING TO THE ADOBE SESSION:
The link to Adobe will open at 3.15pm on the day and you should pop in in advance of the session to test your gear. Also:
- Please have your headset at hand
- Please don't have the "Talk" button clicked when you are not talking
- Please contact Hazel (hazelowendmc) directly via SKYPE chat if you have any on the day issues...
Please RSVP by the 14th July by filling in the sign up sheet. Thanks.
Yes, you can attend via iPad > http://itunes.apple.com/nz/app/adobe-connect-mobile-for-ios/id430437503?mt=8
I have managed an Adobe Connect on an iPhone (!) but an iPad will be easier. Good luck!
Kia ora tatou,
Looking forward to this session. In my work with on-line learning communities I find key to engaging as many learners as possible as fully as possible is to recruit a diverse membership to the community and make all feel that they belong and that our community is democratic and mutually assistive. Also that all contributions, however modest, are welcome and helpful.
