[22:01:10] Holly Dilatush: I'm in the mods group, too -- but have just returned from 3 days away = probably the message is buried in emails i've  not yet seen...
[22:01:12] Ayat Tawel: Yesssssss
[22:01:15] Fernanda Rodrigues: bye, Rita!
[22:01:25] Rita Zeinstejer: (highfive)
[22:01:46] larissa.olesova: (wave)
[22:01:51] Fernanda Rodrigues: (wave)
[22:02:00] Sneza Filipovic: Bye!
[22:02:01] Ayat Tawel: Bye, Rita !!
[22:02:52] Holly Dilatush: beautiful that you'll  meet together there! :)
[22:04:20] Holly Dilatush: I heard a nice story from an adult learner today... she met a friend online in a group for people with new braces = shared orthodontal stories and then became friends online, and just recently met up in person for the first time.  Beautiful friendships do develop from online meetings...
[22:04:47] larissa.olesova: what a nice story of friendship Holly
[22:04:55] Holly Dilatush: I still hear the same sort of thing from many adult ed practitioners, Teresa...  but the tide seems to be turning...
[22:10:33] Holly Dilatush: Your first year!  What a productive year you've had!
[22:11:41] Holly Dilatush: I actually miss the 8 weeks (as a participant)
[22:11:48] Holly Dilatush: but they did lag...
[22:11:54] Ayat Tawel: Yes, Holly !! Agree !!
[22:12:18] Holly Dilatush: and as moderator, it must be better.  5 weeks was such a push/rush for us... (EVO_Drama)
[22:12:52] Holly Dilatush: I'm grateful that you tried this continuation push...   it's so easy to just let the info sit all year
[22:13:06] Holly Dilatush: but your push helped me follow-through on more things
[22:14:32] Holly Dilatush: spell his name please?
[22:14:54] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: andy pincon
[22:14:58] Holly Dilatush: thanks
[22:18:01] Sneza Filipovic: Coming from me: I can't possibly imagine a better group of teachers&friends although I haven't seen any other!
[22:18:12] Fernanda Rodrigues: :)
[22:18:40] Holly Dilatush: (new topic/question)  Do any of you take "digital detox" times?  [enforced 3 or more days offline]    It's harder and harder for me to do...   it's like not checking in at 'home'
[22:18:41] Ayat Tawel: You are one of this good group of friends , Sneza !!
[22:18:43] Ayat Tawel: :)
[22:19:07] Holly Dilatush: and another new question... how many tabs do you usually have open at one time?  [me = often 15 or more]
[22:19:41] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: same here, holly!
[22:19:55] Holly Dilatush: blessed, yes!
[22:19:56] Fernanda Rodrigues: as many tabs as my computer can handle
[22:20:05] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: that's so nice to hear, sneza
[22:20:28] larissa.olesova: very nice Sneza
[22:21:07] Fernanda Rodrigues: I usually have my computer on and connected to the internet all day, even if I'm doing some other things
[22:21:14] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: we were all ther, sneza. i felt lo
[22:21:45] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: ...i felt lost in my first TI caht in 2002
[22:23:06] Holly Dilatush: I still feel lost in TappedIn...
[22:23:20] larissa.olesova: Holly - me either!
[22:23:37] Fernanda Rodrigues: that's very sweet, Ayat
[22:23:39] larissa.olesova: every time it looks totally new for me :(
[22:23:40] Holly Dilatush: It's a great question... I hope you'll post that on Twitter and in the email...
[22:23:45] Sneza Filipovic: Exactly!!!!!
[22:23:52] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: i'm so glad, ayat
[22:23:54] Holly Dilatush: Has BAW changed your personal character?
[22:24:08] Holly Dilatush: and you shared it with the world!
[22:24:14] Holly Dilatush: moved us, too, Ayat!
[22:24:15] larissa.olesova: Yes Holly
[22:24:37] Holly Dilatush: I've been pondering this question a lot recently:  "I'm not sure that I know my preferred way of learning anymore..."  [which tools, combinations of tools, all online?  Moodle?  Ning?  EVO workshop?  TESOL conference = poster presentations, CALL village? in-person?  hybrid/blended]?
[22:24:56] Holly Dilatush: [applause, applause!]
[22:25:18] Holly Dilatush: Vance is incredible!
[22:25:27] larissa.olesova: (clap)
[22:27:18] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: i don't really have a preferred way of learning. i think that the diversity we have in webheads is what makes me so enthusiastic and active
[22:29:09] Holly Dilatush: but is your feeling with learning experiences of different types the same?  Is it still as easy to sit through a lecture, for example?   Are you able to tweet and pay attention when attending an in-person session?
[22:30:02] Fernanda Rodrigues: I find it difficult to keep concentration in lectures
[22:30:57] Holly Dilatush: lucky school!
[22:31:01] Sneza Filipovic: I find it difficult to listen and read SMS. How do you make it?
[22:31:26] Ayat Tawel: Step by step, you will be able to follow !!
[22:31:35] Holly Dilatush: I have not been able to be comfortable tweeting while attending f2f (face to face) presentations...
[22:31:38] larissa.olesova: Sneza - LOL! Yes, I agree with Ayat about step by step
[22:32:30] Holly Dilatush: and recently "had to" tweet while attending a webinar, and that's a challenge for me, too... too hard to keep up with everything.   [and I'm slow at texting, and must look at the phone while I'm texting!] LOL
[22:32:45] larissa.olesova: Holly LOL
[22:34:23] Fernanda Rodrigues: I'm very slow at texting too, I also have to look at the keeyboard. I find it amazing when I see people riding a bicycle and texting at the same time
[22:34:52] Ayat Tawel: LOL !!
[22:37:12] Sneza Filipovic: Wow! How many years of practice?
[22:37:15] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: lol fernanda
[22:37:16] Ayat Tawel: Teresa, Catherine will join !!
[22:37:22] Ayat Tawel: Can you add her ?

[22:38:26] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: hi cat! welcome  :)
[22:38:43] Ayat Tawel: Hellooooooooo
[22:39:07] Sneza Filipovic: Sorry I was asking Teresa how many years of practice before multitasking!
[22:40:30] larissa.olesova: Sneza, from my experience I can say that I was able to multitasking since my experience as a moderator of BAW2010
[22:40:43] Holly Dilatush: I often laugh with delight at how easily I deal with most 'glitches' now... as compared to way back when...  something going wrong used to cause dramatic reactions and the certainty that it 'must have been me'
[22:40:46] larissa.olesova: chatting, talking, helping at the same time as a moderator
[22:41:16] Holly Dilatush: [that's why it's so nice that Teresa is repeating the chance to explore / re-explore the EVO weeks!]
[22:41:33] larissa.olesova: it is Holly
[22:42:04] Holly Dilatush: I hear you, Teresa, I hear you... that was so much my experience, too.
[22:43:06] Holly Dilatush: go pick a bouquet of flowers from my yard... here's a bouquet for all of you  (F) (F) (F) (F) (F)

[22:44:38] Holly Dilatush: many ways to 'dip your toes in'
[22:45:56] Fernanda Rodrigues: lost sound
[22:46:01] larissa.olesova: I lost my sound
[22:46:01] Sneza Filipovic: Oooops!
[22:46:02] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: me too
[22:46:04] larissa.olesova: there is a problem with call
[22:46:04] Ayat Tawel: wow
[22:46:22] Holly Dilatush: as teacher, you can create your own private class group (safe space) and then venture out to enjoy the rest of the site and join in when ready, just observe when not... and work with other teachers on the site (see what they're doing/trying = a teacher in Calif. and another in Turkey are doing a hybrid class from our site LEWWP:   Learn English With a Worldwide Perspective]
[22:46:34] larissa.olesova: again
[22:47:23] larissa.olesova: (clap)
[22:47:30] larissa.olesova: sound?
[22:47:38] Holly Dilatush: sound is not as clear... garbled a bit
[22:47:45] larissa.olesova: a problem with this call again
[22:48:57] Sneza Filipovic: Where can I read a tutorial? I know nothing
[22:49:25] larissa.olesova: Sneza, are you asking about Google Hangout?
[22:49:34] larissa.olesova: We will have a Hangout meeting next week

[22:50:24] larissa.olesova: Fernanda thanks  for the link

[22:51:59] Holly Dilatush: http://englishworldwide.ning.com/profiles/blogs/any-lewwpers-out-there-planning-to-propose-marriage-soon-love-thi
[22:56:20] Holly Dilatush: I'm going to have to say goodbye
[22:56:20] Holly Dilatush: I'm going to have to say goodbye
[22:57:11] *** Call ended, duration 1:28:20 ***
