The discussion was in Hangout on Air so there is a YouTube recording, and an mp3 made from that. Further links can be found in the Chatwing show notes linked from the blog post.

Last Sunday we had a charming conversation with Susan Gaer, who spoke to us about how she gets her students to exercise their language by producing content using apps such as Kahoot, Socrative, Quizizz, 5-Card Flickr, and Showme. She and Vance discussed other such apps and Susan gave us a screenshare view of Quizizz. The occasion was an excellent opportunity to share expertise with an experienced and much awarded educator, and you can play it back here:

So, if you are here reading this, I can only assume a few things about you: you are a language teacher, you are sick of trying to find enough work to support yourself and you are curious about the option of teaching online, but are a little scared. I was exactly in your shoes a little over a year ago and I am here to tell you that there is enough work out there and you can do this. You can, I promise. If I can, you can, that is for damn...

Sunday April 10 at 1400 UTC I'll be meeting online with some of the people who made the CALL-IS webcasts happen. We'll return for this to the scene of the crime as committed in Baltimore, the Webheads virtual office 
http://webheads.learningtimesevents.org/

We'll talk about how the event went, successes, problems that arose, and what we might do to improve it next year. We'll find out about challenges faced by those who worked to make it happen, who put themselves in the position of having to kickstart the technology while organizing and uploading PowerPoints from numerous presenters, all in the ten minutes between presentations, and what motivates them to put themselves in that position. And I'm sure we'll find out how much they enjoyed it and why they might convince others to give us a hand next year.

All interested in finding out more about webcasting under the radar from international conferences worldwide are welcome to attend. For more information, including time where you are, visit http://tinyurl.com/learning2gether.

Hope you'll join us for #Learning2gether Episode 333 with +Rita Zeinstejer who has created a comprehensive slide presentation on humour in learning, starting with cartoons and comix. There's much here to tickle your funny bone and those of your students.

Rita will be presenting using Bb Collaborate, details here
https://plus.google.com/u/0/events/cahdrm73gamvklv2akuma87cb7g?cfem=1&authkey=CN_V7cD7-9qPwAE

Rita Zeinstejer's presentation will examine how humour can be an effective tool in teaching and in creating the affective second language classroom. It will also examine the reasons why humour is sometimes avoided, and will dispel the myth that one must be a comedian to use humour in a language classroom.

The focus is on the use of cartoons with practical examples of how to use and adapt this particular resource. One doesn't have to be a gifted humorist to reap the benefits of using humour in the classroom.

Time 1400 UTC

Most of us are familiar with language levels. You know, A1, A2 and so on.
But do you know how many words you have to know for each language level?
Or how many words, on the average, do you need to effectively acquire vocabulary from context?

Here are answers to these questions:

http://www.universeofmemory.com/how-many-words-you-should-know/

Do you think it is useful to track the number of words you know?

There is a lot of confusion around how big your vocabulary should be for each level. Here is a simple rule to remember it how many words you should know
