Full Session Description
July 7-9 2014 the presenter attended a conference entitled
ANTWERP CALL 2014: Research Challenges in CALL
This presentation conveys impressions of the conference and encapsulate the dominant threads and research agendas to emerge, primarily through the conference Twitter stream. A Flipboard was produced to capture the activity and vibe of the conference. This means of aggregating content from professional events and displaying that content via an aggregation tool can serve as a model for archive and delegate reflection on conferences.

From teacher networked learning to transformation in your classroom from Vance Stevens
xt, such etiquette was called Netiquette - do you remember that phrase? I don't hear it much now, but there's still references out there:
One recommendation I came across for new online social networking communities was to allow new members to introduce themselves perhaps with the assistance of an icebreaker task.
The second part of your question is a bigger challenge: motivation. This is a big topic, and it might be that the best ideas for that are on sites that discuss motivation.
I'd be interested to hear what you discover; particularly if you find the technique works :-)
Here's a question to ponder though. Is it the job of an educator to motivate employees (in the workplace) or is it the job of their manager? I'd suggest the latter. An educator can make their course relevant and interesting so that students are more motivated to learn the topic; but that only addresses part of the employees' overall motivation.
e next few days and also email and Skype schools. We also will be posting training times later today. We have been spreading news on our social networks, Facebook, Twitter (@RSCON4, hashtag #RSCON4), Youtube, and GPlus.

Here’s a blurb you can copy/paste to announce the event on your blog
Schedule your interview with Bruno Andrade here.
Pay close attention to the messages from this group as we will be announcing Blackboard training dates with Jo Hart, Phil Hart, and Peggy George.
PRESENTATION DESIGN- Keep your presentations simple. Use only PowerPoint slides or JPEGs and make sure to “minimize” the images so that the size of the presentation is under 7MB. Please, no animations, effects, or transitions. If you are using special fonts or many visual elements, it’s best you turn slides into JPEGs. We are inviting participants in 100+ countries. Bandwidth is an issue and presenters in the past have had problems showing videos, screensharing and doing web tours. You can wow with images, screenshots of sites, and your passion! You can also post videos and links to your profile so the audience continues to connect with you.
We recommend that you sign up at the WeCollaborate user community for support and advice. You can get a free, 30-day, 25-seat trial of Collaborate HERE. This will allow you to practice now and make sure your presentation looks the way you want. You can also check your mic and webcam settings. MAC users need to download the Collaborate Launcher for Mac. Get help here.
If your presentation information is posted in the Presenter’s Discussion, then you need to repost it in the right forum or it will not be approved. You should have received an email from Shelly regarding this. Make sure your presentation is located under Session Descriptions. Presentation descriptions listed in this group’s discussions will soon be deleted.

Language in Which You Will Present: English
Target Audience(s): Elementary teachers
Short Session Description (one line): During this session we will discuss ways to use the power of emotional experiences to engage and empower learners.
Full Session Description (as long as you would like):
In this session, we will look at ways that I have used the power of humor, novelty, awe, and fascination to engage students in powerful learning experiences. We can make small tweaks in our routines and incorporate novelty, awe, and fascination so that our students will have lower stress levels and be willing to take more risks and challenges. This is not about smiley faces and being happy all the time, but more about creatively crafting the climate so that students are in the optimal state for learning. We will use real examples from the classroom and allow participants to share their own wow moments that have come about through mobilizing the power of emotions.
