  Mbarek Akaddar  Statistics on EVO 2016

EVO2016 made a difference! EVO sessions  attracted more participants and reached more countries. I will be sharing with you some statistics on the great achievements of EVO2016 in addition to a few suggestions and recommendations for  EVO2017.


  Vance Stevens  EVO Minecraft MOOC  Now in its second session, #evomc16 invites interested teachers to join us in playing Minecraft, learning all we can about playing alone and together, and how Minecraft is being used effectively in language learning. We learn about gamification in learning by experiencing it in constructive play with one another.  EVO MC Google+ community and list of Missions Accomplished 
  Nellie Deutsch  Moodle for Teachers for EVO16 Sessions  Moodle for Teachers (M4T) hosted TECHNO CLIL (over 5000 participants), Moodle Teacher Training, and Teaching EFL to Young Learners. The platform was effective in engaging mega number of participants with the content, each other, and the moderators; tracking participants work, awarding weekly badges, awarding final certificates; and adding WizIQ virtual classes.

Vance Stevens 

Vance Stevens has been involved in online learning since way last century, as founder of a movement that became Webheads in Action, still a robust community. I have been a coordinator of the TESOL / CALL-IS Electronic Village Online for almost 15 years and have moderated several 5-week online sessions there ranging from Multiliteracies and MOOCs to Minecraft. The latter has evolved into a thriving community of practice where educators can learn experientially about implementing gamification in their teaching practice and professional development, and a few tricks in Minecraft as well. In 2010, I started a weekly webinar series called Learning2gether, which has produced around 325 episodes
