Week of March 21, 2011 - Live, Interactive, and Free Webinars in Elluminate

Below are this week's public, free, and interactive Webinars through LearnCentral.org, the social learning network for education that I work on for Elluminate.

The time of the events below will show up automatically in your own time zone when you are registered in LearnCentral and when you have chosen your time zone in your profile, or you can check the new event time converter on the event page. Event recordings are posted and available after the events if you aren't able to attend them live. If you are looking for an easy calendar import / RSS feed for these events, you'll now find a link on your calendar page or the calendar page of specific groups!

We hope you will consider hosting your own public webinars using the free LearnCentral public room--instructions are available by joining the "Host Your Own Webinar" group on the main announcement tab (http://www.learncentral.org/group/3432/host-your-own-webinars).

CREATING HIGH-IMPACT, AH-HA! LEARNING MOMENTS (Elluminate Live)
Tue 22 Mar 01:00PM New York / Tue 22 Mar 05:00PM GMT / Wed 23 Mar 05:00AM Sydney
Gailene Nelson. What participants look for in training are Ah-Ha! moments: the rare moments of inspiration and insights that help them understand and apply the learning ideas. Ah-Ha! moments don’t occur by accident, though. They are byproducts of well planned, highly motivational, and engaging design learning and training events. In the webinar, we will present proven techniques used in preparing and organizing videos, slides, webinars and games to immediately create long-lasting learning experiences.

SABERES 2.0 - ¿APLICACIONES WEB 2.0 PODEMOS HABLAR DE CLÁSICOS EN EDUCACIÓN? (Aula 2.0)
Tue 22 Mar 09:00PM New York / Wed 23 Mar 01:00AM GMT / Wed 23 Mar 01:00PM Sydney
Tomas Chaskel. Nuestra presentadora quiere aprovechar este taller para compartir y realizar un conversatorio sobre unas ideas que viene delineando. BUENO TRAER MICROFONO Sería algo así como identificar en la web 2.0 algunas aplicaciones que van quedando como básicas y duraderas frente a otras que surgen, pero desde el sistema educativo se ignoran. Específicamente: estamos dando por sentado que un profe debe saber armar un blog, manejar una wiki y conocer herramientas de e-learning. Parece ser que esto... que fue lo primero que surgió en la web 2.0 ya se tiene incorporado y no se discute para el sistema educativo. Pero, cuando se incorpora algo nuevo, se hace como web 2.0. Digitalicemos las clases y no generemos cambio metodológico. ¿Estamos de acuerdo?
