Re: Vance's Jan 23 2004 Slides AND Sat Jan 24 sessions noon GMT
- Dear Webheads,
It's after three o'clock in Cairo now. I think the jazz fusion band
we left an hour and a half ago is probably still playing.
Thanks Rita for your message. Regarding slides I suspect our EV site
is full. Give me a few days and I'll upload my slides to the WIA
Webheads are all the buzz at the Cairo conference. The demo we put
on Friday afternoon in Cairo wowed an audience of two dozen or so.
Michael put in his usual sterling performance as online emcee and he
and Buth managed the chat lines in Tapped in and Yahoo messenger

I've had to prepare for one more 4-hour workshop before I can go to
bed. There has been a change in format for the workshop because the
firewall at the venue for Saturday will not allow voice or video and
there doesn't seem to be much we can do about it. Therefore Buth and
I have come up with a new plan. Basically it's to get participants
into a Yahoo Group and teach them blogging, then prepare the group
for eventual participation in Becoming a Webhead. Buth will do the
post-workshop follow-on for that.
If you can join us online you can help us train the participants,
and/or you can avail yourself of the training as well. The following
document will be used as a handout:
The venue remains:
Saturday, January 24 - 2 to 6 p.m Cairo time; noon to 4 p.m. GMT,
with Randa Effat: Enhancing Online Educational Communities with
Computer-Mediated Communications Tools, an IELP2 mini workshop at the
Central Department for In service Training lab in Cairo.
Thanks very much to all Webheads and hope to see you online Saturday.
