Does blogging diminish feelings of writing anxiety in EFL writing class or increase it? Because their works being read by others.

Hi Barry,

I know that videos brought into the session are not made part of the recording. This was a decision a year ago by Wiziq but now they're changing this.

Hi Barry,

Wiziq is very easy to use. There are examples of students participating in public sessions, but I don't think full on presenting. In the private sessions I think there are examples of students presenting but they are, of course, private.

I think you should give it a shot. :)

The basic service is free.

Hi Barry,

With your work in Technology Integration for your ESL students at LA Unified SD, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service. Here’s a public class recording you might find of interest.

Hi Barry:

Thank you very much for your interest. If you provide me with an e-mail, I would be glad to send you a full version free of charge.

Thank you, Barry. You do a great job bringing Web 2.0 tools to CA adult ed. Thank you for being a great role model for me and many of us.

Hi Barry,

It seems like the Random link in the teacher.pageflakes subdomain only links to other teacher.pageflake pages. That is a lot better than the regular pageflakes and something to consider.

Take care,

Hi Barry,

Have you seen I think Pageflakes has fallen short of the goal. They have a custom set of flakes that are edu-centric when you open the control panel, but the browse flakes/pagecasts buttons are still available. I can't use that with students.

And you are right - the random pagecast link is still there. In other words, they haven't really done anything yet. Have you heard anything else?

Hey Barry,

I'm pulling myself out of that rut! Thanks a lot for checking in, though, I appreciate it...

Hey Barry,

Sorry for the delay in communication - it's been a crazy 1st half of the year! I love Pageflakes as a tool, but I think they have a small team over there. My conversations with them are always positive, but I find that it takes a very long time to execute on those conversations. Most of the things I've asked for haven't been delivered yet: removing the random link, removing the Browse all Flakes button, and customizing the list of flakes available to students. It's been disappointing because we had to put our plans of students using the service on hold. I'm still waiting patiently because I think Ole and his group will get it together. In the meantime, I am using it as a resource portal for teachers, parents, and students. Such a shame - it's so much more powerful than that.

Hi Barry, thanks for the Hannuka greeting!
I honestly can't remember how I added the dvolvr movie, but it must have been easy :-) I'll look at the source of the page and let you know.

I see that you teach ESL adult immigrant students. You might like my 6th Grades restaurant project on VoiceThread, this is one example (unfinished) once the kids finish their part, I will open it up for comments and then Language learners will be able to place virtual orders :-)
Happy Holidays

Hi Barry, thanks for the heads up about my mail - I'll have to check into that.

I'll let you know as soon as I know more about the sub-domain. I got an email today from the folks at Pageflakes and they are working on it.

Thanks for the clock links!

Welcome Barry - greetings from Germany!

Hey Barry,

It's great to meet you! I actually found your pagecast a few weeks ago. It was fun to find you here as well. I'm also new here, but it seems like a fantastic place to find support and inspiration. Welcome to Classroom 2.0!
