Published on

A re-work of the Wimba Voice session. This hasn't been tested with a full group, so may yet change (to be fair, any can be changed, learning is a continuous process...)

Wimba Voice (Re-Edit)

  1. 1. WimbAVOICE<br />Dr Bex Lewis<br />
  2. 2. Wimba Voice: The Session<br />Learning styles, specifically auditory learning styles<br />The possibilities for synchronous and asynchronous discussion. <br />The basics of using the tool to annotate other material & create podcasts<br />Personalise your Learning Network page with a welcome message<br />The opportunity to provide auditory student feedback <br />
  3. 3. Do you have?<br />USB headset with integrated microphone?<br />Module on the Learning Network in which you can practice?<br />
  4. 4. Why audio?<br />LEARNING STYLES<br />
  5. 5. E-Learning<br />“The move towards adopting more audio-visual modes of delivery in lectures and through Virtual Learning Environments is certainly a growing trend. Some colleagues are also producing video resources to be used in conjunction with traditional lecture materials or as a stimuli for seminars or assignments, these are often sourced from existing off-air recordings or increasingly from online sources such as YouTube.”<br /> (p167)<br />Image:<br />
  6. 6. Learning Styles<br />
  7. 7. Auditory (34%)<br />Like ‘traditional’ lecture-style techniques <br />Sit where they can hear, but needn’t pay attention to what is happening in front<br />Acquire knowledge by reading aloud<br />Remember by verbalising lessons to themselves.<br />Hum or talk to themselves or others when bored<br />Likely to say: “I hear what you’re saying”<br />PAY ATTENTION TO: Voice tone, inflection, questioning<br />
  8. 8. DISCUSS: Uses for WimbaVoice?<br />Where and how are you thinking of using Wimba Voice?<br />What benefits do you think it will have for teaching/your administrative role?<br />
  9. 9. Synchronous/Asynchronous<br />Synchronous e-learning<br />Works in ‘real time’<br />Uses tools such as<br />Videoconferencing <br />Chat (vocal or writtten)<br />Aids the development of learning communities<br />Social Learning, less isolation<br />Avoids frustration in getting fast responses to queries<br />Asynchronous e-learning<br />Occurring at different times<br />Uses tools such as<br />Email<br />Discussion boards (vocal or written)<br />Supports work relations among learners and with teachers<br />Flexible, especially for part-timers<br />Learners can log on to an e-learning environment at any time and download documents or send messages to teachers or peers.<br />Students may spend more time refining their contributions, which are generally considered more thoughtful compared to synchronous communication.<br /><br />Image:<br />
