aidenyeh (13:02:49): i Like Daf's portal page and the first paragraph that you wrote
aidenyeh (13:02:53): we could use that
dygonza (13:02:56): I though we could post our answers to Scott
dygonza (13:03:10): then what you said about inviting people to send their pages
aidenyeh (13:03:17): yes, that's a good starting point
dygonza (13:03:27): or reflections on what they have done
esl_efl_ku (13:03:30): btw,
esl_efl_ku (13:04:01): i found that i have flagged Scott and Arnold's comments messages for follow up
dygonza (13:04:01): yes, Buth
esl_efl_ku (13:04:06): for week 5 earlier
esl_efl_ku (13:04:12): and yes
esl_efl_ku (13:04:19): i agree that it is a good start
dygonza (13:04:30): I think Scott's qustions are a good start
esl_efl_ku (13:04:32): especially that my focus is on this problem
aidenyeh (13:05:06): in our case, we could post our mini abstracts, in relation to scott's questions
dygonza (13:05:08): I like your pre and post webheads pages, buth
esl_efl_ku (13:05:20): i'm still struggling with issue , but got much better laly..
esl_efl_ku (13:05:31): thanks Daf..
dygonza (13:05:31): yes, they are already on the page, we could expand, at leat me
dygonza (13:05:54): I had no previous experience with the web before webheads
esl_efl_ku (13:06:01): i like and admire your use of the web tools
dygonza (13:06:04): so I would hve to have a black page
esl_efl_ku (13:06:13): and your amazing speed on everything so far
aidenyeh (13:06:16): black page?
dygonza (13:06:17): blank, I mean
dygonza (13:06:38): that would be a good idea
aidenyeh (13:06:40): blank page for?
dygonza (13:06:58): for my pre- webheads period on using web tools
aidenyeh (13:07:00): to present- no experience
dygonza (13:07:06): yes
aidenyeh (13:07:07): got it,
aidenyeh (13:07:08): cool
dygonza (13:07:43): only a title with my experience with web tools before joining webheads
dygonza (13:08:03): and only question marks all around
dygonza (13:08:30): what do you think?
esl_efl_ku (13:08:53): this sound good Daf
esl_efl_ku (13:09:06): what about you Aiden?
aidenyeh (13:09:07): clear meaning,
esl_efl_ku (13:09:23): Any experiences page prioir to WIa
dygonza (13:09:31): maybe with mouse over effects on each question mark where I ask questions related to online teaching and learning
aidenyeh (13:09:56): prior to webheads, I was moderating an online session (evonline) but the theme was different
esl_efl_ku (13:10:16): oopss, soory
esl_efl_ku (13:10:30): one of the experts
aidenyeh (13:10:32): I however, got involved with webheads because Vance was always the one who replied to my queries posted on evonline
aidenyeh (13:10:50): no, not really, But
dygonza (13:10:52): the importance of feedback for motivation
aidenyeh (13:10:52): Buth
esl_efl_ku (13:11:20): waht do you mean by "not really??
esl_efl_ku (13:11:49): I love feedback, Daf
aidenyeh (13:11:50): not really that high tech or what you would call computer savvy
esl_efl_ku (13:12:00): and I think it is crucial for this area
aidenyeh (13:12:03): likfe you and Daf, I learned by doing
esl_efl_ku (13:12:10): especially for novice teachers like me
dygonza (13:12:21): yes, Vance is the perfect model to follow
aidenyeh (13:12:32): that's what i did
aidenyeh (13:13:05): and applied what I've learned from evonline and vance in my teaching
esl_efl_ku (13:13:06): Got you Aiden, an this is what I like about our Cop
dygonza (13:13:07): you know, I jumped form having done nothing to designing and moderating my own online course
esl_efl_ku (13:13:18): where the experts and the trainees melt in a pot
esl_efl_ku (13:14:03): Yes, i know Daf, and this is why i think you are amazing
dygonza (13:14:06): and it was not difficult, I just followed on VAnce's modelling
esl_efl_ku (13:14:15): you are a genius, Daf
aidenyeh (13:14:20): the point that I would like to raise is it worthwhile for non-native speakers teachers of english to be engaged in such a commun ity and why?
dygonza (13:14:27): comm'n Buth
esl_efl_ku (13:14:54): yes, and this is what I didn't do from the begiining and put myself in a terrible situation
dygonza (13:14:57): of course my previous experience in f2f teaching, and my methodology helped a lot
aidenyeh (13:15:09): remember Nigel saying "it's time consuming"
esl_efl_ku (13:15:11): the step by step approach is effective
dygonza (13:15:28): it indeed is
dygonza (13:15:41): but planning f2f is also time consuming
dygonza (13:15:52): it all depends on your approach
esl_efl_ku (13:15:58): that's why i tried to start all over again (the 7 weeks) during ummer
dygonza (13:16:11): I like what you are doing Buth
esl_efl_ku (13:16:11): and still in the process
dygonza (13:16:19): we are all in the process
dygonza (13:16:28): I love Aiden's projects
dygonza (13:16:44): especially your work with listening, Aiden
dygonza (13:17:04): I need to learn about using songs
esl_efl_ku (13:17:11): Yes, indeed Aiden's work in that area is brilliant
aidenyeh (13:17:18): I need to check my pages and for links
dygonza (13:17:33): putting up pages with audio is something I need to get involved in
dygonza (13:18:00): I need to know what page do you want to link from your name on our first week 5 page, Aiden
esl_efl_ku (13:18:05): I tI think I had linked once Aiden's work somewhere in my page
aidenyeh (13:18:12): are you referring to Micahel's or the favorite songs video
esl_efl_ku (13:18:17): but becuase I sytarted all over again,
esl_efl_ku (13:18:30): I will find a better way of linking it now
dygonza (13:18:59): I have all your listening pages saved for future references, Aiden

aidenyeh (13:21:20): remember, I'd like to point the relevance of this CoP to NNS this could wait till the very last days

aidenyeh (13:48:37): email format ?
dygonza (13:48:41): yes
dygonza (13:49:21): I think it is better to write 2 separate messages, welcoming and instructions, so people do not get mixed up
dygonza (13:49:49): the subject of the messages will clearly indicate what the message is about for further reference
aidenyeh (13:50:31): i like the first paragraph you wrote in your portal page
