      Fred, Andrius, Sasha and everyone,
      I am looking forward to our e-meeting on Thursday 5th July - 4.30pm Kenya time, to be chaired by Andrius and lead by Fred.
      - To confirm your time zone go to:  
      Fred you asked about including Skype - I am interested that you ask because I remember how you could not join the audio part of our Trainerspod e-meeting.  Is that problem now solved for you?  Do you want to include Skype?  It is your e-meeting so you are free to choose.  If you use Skype and some people cannot hear, perhaps you could ask Sasha if he will be at the meeting to help. Perhaps he would explain what is being said - like he did for you when there was talking at Trainerspod and you could not hear it.

      Let us consider the benfits and disadvantages. The advantage of only using typed chat is that people who are already able to email are also able to chat, but they may not be able to Skype.  The benefit of using Skype is that you can speak information more quickly than you can type it.  A benefit of chat is that we get an archive.  A mix of Skype and chat would work well - you could speak and we could type questions to you - but we would not have a record of what you said.  If we have some people who cannot use Skype how do we include them in our e-meeting?  How many of our people would be left out?

      Andrius. You have already done some experimenting with chat room and Skype combined. What do you think about it?
      Fred. If you decide to use Skype it would be a good idea to collect up Skype identities before the e-meeting and sort out contact permissions.  Then it will just be a matter of inviting people to participate in a Skype conference once the e-meeting is ready to start.  Andrius, I think you probably already have the Skype IDs of many of the potential participants.

      Fred. Use whatever you think will suit your purpose best. These are still early days for our e-meetings and we will find out what works best by trying things out. Gradually, together, we will discover how to make the most of these opportunities to meet and Learn From Each Other.

        Tomorrow -Thursday 16th August is our next e-meeting. Thanks to Asif and Trainerspod, it will be an audio-graphic meeting - or "Webinar".  click the links below for details
        It is 3.30 London time

        More Information: http://www.trainers pod.com/info/

        You need to register before hand to make sure that your system has all the necessary software down loaded. But if you are not able to down load the software then Andrius has said that he will run a parallel session in the chat room, WorkNets Chat Room  so you do not have to be left out. The benefit of meeting at Trainerspod is that the session there will include sound, and an interactive whiteboard, and some other features.

        The session is called LearnByDoing ICT4Ed&D. If all goes well it will be the first of a series. In the first session we will LearnByDoing about how we like to use audiographic meetings for "our kind" of exchange of information. I have been thinking about this for some time, and exploring audiographic conferencing, and have some ideas about it which we can try out and discuss. This means that  I will be leading the session. I also think it is a good idea if the session leader has the help of a chairman, so I have asked Sasha to fill that role.

        I won't explain more now -as that is what the meeting is about. I look forward to e-meeting Minciu Sodas people tomorrow. We will also try to fit in some informal networking. Please invite anyone else who may be interested.

        Meetings - meetings - the most recent and next week - you are warmly invited

        ~ Most recent.
        The meeting that Andrius arranged for Thursday August 9th was wonderful.  It was very practical and focused. I hope Andrius will have time to write it up for us so that people who were not there will get an impression of what went on  - or of course there is the archive - but it was a long meeting. I was very excited and happy to see the quality of the practical information and the ideas that were flowing. It was really fulfilling a dream for me regarding getting answers to my LFEO questions.

        ~ Next week,on Thursday August 16th
        Next week,on Thursday August 16th we have a dual meeting. I am leading an e-meeting at Trainerspod. However we know some people at cyber cafes are not able to join in a meeting which has sound (which we use at Trainerspod) and  so Andrius has volunteered to arrange a parallel session in the chat room. The Trainerspod session has to run at a time that best suits USA - so it is a little later than our usual chat room sessions. It is 10.30 a.m. EST for 11.00, that is 15.30 for 16.00 London time. See below for full details of what it is all about - I very much hope to e-meet some of you at Trainerspod - or if not - I hope to learn that you are in the chat room.

        If you know anyone else who might be interested please pass on the invitation:

        Event Background

        ICT is changing our opportunities to learn.  The LearnByDoing series explores some of the realities, and how they relate to education and development.

        One image of education is that it has three inter-related parts: teacher(s), learner(s), and a knowledge base of some kind.  In many rural African schools rote learning is still the order of the day, because the only knowledge base is the knowledge of the teacher, supplemented by a few books. By contrast, where learners have access to the Internet, a huge knowledge base is available for the learners to interrogate. The Internet also offers the opportunity for peer-to-peer learning, collaboration on practical projects, and distance learning of various kinds.

        This session (the first in a series) builds on the knowledge base of a network of activists – all involved  in various aspects of ICT, education, and development. It focuses on their practical projects and issues surrounding them.

        This  session sets the scene and provides a model for subsequent sessions. Each session is complete in itself. A typical session will focus on a given topic, and include people with different kinds of expertise relating to the topic - more in the style of a structured illustrated meeting than an individual presentation.

        About the Presenter

        Pamela McLean is an ICT for Education (and Development) activist, working on the Internet and in rural Africa.
        Her work explores the relationship between teaching, learning, and ICT, and the implications for education, training and development.
        She is involved in ICT training for teachers in rural Kenya and Nigeria (where, it is said, if you train a teacher you train the community); leads the group LearningFromEachOth er in Mincui Sodas; is a CAWD volunteer: and is co-director, with John Dada, of DadaMcLean Ltd - Knowledge Brokers.
