Sabrina Wilson often attends Learning2gether Hangout events, and she mentioned at a recent one that she lived in Altafulla on the coast of Spain between Barcelona and Tarragona. On Sunday July 5 Vance will be in Spain for the XVII International CALL Research Conference in Tarragona and Sabrina invited my wife and me to stop off at Altafulla for a Hangout on Air about how we have met in various online spaces associated with the Webheads in Action and Becoming a Webhead communities of practice before connecting face to face in Spain.
The discussion will be about whatever comes up, but we’ll be reflecting on the meetings of minds virtually online that often result in face-to-face hookups, and of course reviewing what will transpire the next few days at the XVII International CALL Research Conference in Tarragona, Spain, July 6-8,

Benjamin Stewart was there and he told us a bit about Microsoft Word Online and how he has been using it with students. He and Vance compared notes on how they have been teaching writing, Vance with voice in Google Docs, and Docs Story Builder for brainstorming.
Where? Google+ Hangout on Air
|Sabrina introduced herself in Becoming a Webhead, BAW 2013like this
My name is Sabrina Wilson and I’m an English teacher at an after school academy in Spain. I teach children from 4 years old to teenagers and also adults. I joined the Becoming a Webhead group to learn more about using technology so that I can approach my boss about offering blended learning opportunities to teen and adult students asking for more activities outside of the classroom.
