Day 27 Meeting online and face to face

Three meetings in one. In order for our group to meet, 4 came in via videoconference, 2 by Live Classroom (audio and chat only) and the rest of us face to face. Our screen brought us all together. It takes some getting used to, but we all manage to function as a group whether our presence is real or virtual. And who is virtual and who is real? The top quarter of the image on the screen is actually the real people in the room reflected back at ourselves.

All of us were working together, co-constructing, sharing our ideas on a google doc. Was that real? A document in cyberspace. A great way to work though - and lots of food for thought that we can go back to, each from our own spot in Quebec.

  1. How neat! We do that to some extent in our school district, but certainly don't take full advantage! Perhaps with the economical pressures, we'll see more of it!
