Sun 12 July noon UTC - 16th Webheads Weekly Sunday Sandbox OpenMic-inar #learning2gether #webheadsinaction #talin2020
Hi everyone and good morning from Penang,
As you might know if you're following me on Facebook, my wife Bobbi and I took a week-long staycation in Malaysia last week, taking advantage of the low covid risk in the country, and trying to get it in before they start allowing foreign tourists to enter, in which case we would likely personally revert to lockdown. We spent our time on two islands in the Perhentian chain, with poor connectivity and even electricity being rationed on the 'little' island.
So we didn't get much done (during surface intervals) while there, but we returned to Penang this morning on an overnight bus from Koala Besut. We got a little sleep on the bus, rounded that off on arrival at our apartment, and I'm now feeling good to go for this evening's (Penang time) ...

The podcast where Vance Stevens, Laine Marshall, and Graham Stanley discussed SOFLA in detail on Sunday July 12 at the 16th Webheads Revival Weekly Sunday Sandbox Open Mic-inar has been archived at https://learning2gether.net/2020/07/12/vance-stevens-and-laine-marshall-discuss-sofla-in-detail-at-the-16th-webheads-revival-weekly-sunday-sandbox-open-mic-inar/
In this sandbox event, also the 31st TALIN webinar and Learning2gether episode 477, I had sought to sneak-preview my thoughts on designing a workshop to be given online to a group of PhD students in Rabat Morocco on July 16 at which I would apply the SOFLA model to the topic they asked me to speak on, Online Language Learning and Teaching (OLLT). I've been working on a portal for the event here, http://ollt2020.pbworks.com/
SOFLA stands for synchonous online flipped learning approach, and it's a model which Laine has been developing over the past few years. The podcast archive provides a sneak preview look at her most recent article on the topic.
Next Sunday, July 19, Graham and I intend to carry on this discussion comparing my notes on how it went with his plans to apply the SOFLA model to a workshop he is giving on July 24. I'll create a calendar event for the Webheads sandbox event before next Sunday, and I presume Graham will be telling us more about his workshop shortly.
Hope to see you online at one or more of these events.
