      Dear Pam and all,
      i'm very interested in attending this meeting but this week we are moving our library into an other area of our Institute.So unfortunately i can't stay with you for long lime. If you arrange some meeting later...Any  way Pam I don't want to create problems because next week I'll be in a place without Internet access.
      All the best and thanks for what youbare doing for us!

      Dear Sam
      I am sorry you cannot get to the chat room tomorrow - I see you as an important member of the "LearnByDoing Club" - and I chose photography and video as a topic because of the work you are doing.
      So - what is to be done?
      I think it is too late to change the arrangements for tomorrow's meeting.  Let us think forward in two ways:
      1 - tomorrows meeting
      2 - a meeting that suits you
      For tomorrow let us see if we can have two parallel meetings - one in the chat room and one in a way that suits you.  You mentioned Skype, and last e-meeting I think Fred kept you in touch via yahoo.  I will not volunteer to arrange to do that as I may need to chair the chat.  But maybe you can arrange it with someone else who plans to attend.  I hope so.
      Then we must arrange an e-meeting that does suit you.  You have mentioned Skype.  Perhaps that would be our best idea.  Let us put that on the agenda to discuss at tomorrows meeting.
      Do you want to suggest a time and day?  We can see how that suits people at tomorrows meeting, and through LFEO.
      If you are definitely around tomorrow on yahoo or skype perhaps we can arrange for some informal networking to happen on yahoo or skype after the chat session is over.  If everyone has yahoo IDs we might move over to yahoo from the chat room quite early on.  Or maybe we don't all need yahoo, we just need some kind of Instant Messaging.  I don't know how many of us are allowed to do yahoo conferncign at one time. Maybe that is something we will LearnByDoing at tomorrows chat.
      Thanks for letting me know in advance about the chat problem.  Have you written about it in detail anywhere?  We need to be collecting up information about all the difficult situations people are in so we can be considerate about each others needs and help people to have the kind of e-meeting that they need.

      Ref photos and Thursday e-meeting

      Our e-meeting for the first Thursday in August has the title;
       "Evidence, evidence, evidence"- How we use photos and video to share our stories.

      It will be at  the chat room  on Thursday August 2nd at the usual time. Full details at http://learnbydoing uk.blogspot. com/  You can also read a description there of the e-meeting we had last week.

      If you want to submit items for the agenda beforehand please send them here - to LFEO yahoo group.

      If you think you will want to refer to a discussion thread please be ready with the reference. Remember that even if you can click a link to see a thread in a yahoo group it does not mean other people can do the same. Only people who are registered with the group will be able to click the link successfully. You may need to cut and paste the text into the chat.

      As we do more of these LearnByDoing e-meetings we will developed better strategies. Regarding references that we may want to use during a session,  perhaps we can arrange to collect them up beforehand on the wiki. Your ideas are most welcome on how we develop effective e-meetings. In fact, how to improving our e-meetings is an item that  we need to include on our agenda on a regular basis.

      I look forward to e-meeting you on Thursday if you are able to attend.

        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/

        Register: http://www.trainers pod.com/register

        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.

        We have limited "seats" for this event. The webinar is entirely free of charge. Seats will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Register for the event by visiting: http://www.trainers pod.com/register.
