Kate and I have been working on a series of Vialogues and an mSchool hub aimed at language acquisition. We’ve been chipping away at Mandarin Chinese with a series of videos and a moodle home in its nascent stages. You can see the videos we’ve uploaded at Vialogues #Chinese. This EdLab Development & Research meeting is meant to generate ideas and feedback, it’s still an early-stage project, but we’d love to hear your thoughts!
Activity #1: Pick a Vialogue
Activity #2: Find a Youtube Video
Find a Mandarin-based YouTube video

Add relevant questions, comments
Add hash tag #Chinese & corresponding level for example: #Beginner, #Intermediate etc. as the very last possible time-stamped comment.
Tip: Be sure your vialogue is public!
Activity #3: Please navigate to our mSchool shell, called Vialogues Language Acquisition Hub (http://library.tc.columbia.edu/moodle/course/view.php?id=1144) The hub is meant to be a home for all our language acquisition resources and Vialogues as well as an evolving FAQ for how to use them. As you can see, it’s not quite done yet! Please help us improve by answering the following questions:
