This post is an experiment to see how resourceful and creative my students can be in exploring this topic. However, anyone can comment of course!

Cheers.

Uh ... actually this is the one I hoped you would post. The actual wikipedia article is brief.

Maybe use an online forum, e.g. Google Classroom, which is easily made private to "outsiders." If that is unreliable, there might be some other forms out there. However, you might want to double check that the forum can be made private to avoid spammers Hint Hint!!

we should use google classroom instead of duolingo. It would be easier to post about a class discussion.

Google Classroom is awesome!

I think that we should meet up and talk about Spanish, all classes. After that we all have to take out one thing and comment it on Duolingo. By that way we can all help each other with Spanish.

I think the main problem is trying to set up a meeting time and making sure that people show up. I guess we could do it during class.

2 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/DautelRyanP5

I agree. Coordinating with other people's schedules can sometimes be a nightmare. For this reason I think something online would make more sense.

Maybe we can try to do something at lunch?

2 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/horriblememes

That could work. We could also make showing up worth a grade in order to encourage more kids to come.

2 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/DautelRyanP5

Sorry, but I don't think that is the best idea. Many students have things they like to do at lunch (me included), and/or have activities planned. As a result, I don't think having a required/graded meeting time at lunch would be a good idea, as it could be a major infringement on other students' time, and possibly cause them to have to give up other things.

I still think online is our best bet.

Good idea.

https://www.duolingo.com/horriblememes

I'd suggest finding an online forum, such as Google Classroom. However, if you want an easier way to make one, creating a private chat room online or a group on Skype is also an option. That's gonna be harder to save for later, though.

There was a similar forum I used to use which allowed you to have a whole written transcription of the entire conversation, and save it as a PDF or print it. Does anyone know its name? (Someone could try googling it).

I'll give that a shot

https://www.duolingo.com/horriblememes

Apparently a lot of chat rooms let you do that nowadays. I think a simple ctrl+f on the features page of one could make it easier to find a good one that has that feature.

google classroom can work but any software where you can select members or friends similar to Discord or Skype.

https://www.duolingo.com/horriblememes

That's a good idea. Although, not everybody has skype or is willing to get it. For some reason.

I've used Skype for a group discussion of four people... but can you do more? And doesn't it have to be happening simultaneously?

2 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/horriblememes

You can definitely have a group of more people. I'm in one that has a group of eight. Although I'm confused as to what you mean by "happening simultaneously."

I mean it's like a phone conversation. You have to establish when the call will be, and everyone has to be online at that time because it's happening simultaneously.

What we're doing here isn't simultaneous. We started this chat at 2:15 pm, and I'm now commenting at 10"00 pm.

Perhaps we can use Google Classroom. I mean we're already using it for Praxis so it'll keep things close together.

Now that's a new idea! Facebook would be easy to post to, including pics, memes etc., and we can set up our phones to get notifications regarding new posts.
