And here is Susana’s version of the event on Vimeo, Hers might be a little different from mine (Vance’s) since she was the host of the event, and I was recording what I saw in my view of the Zoom event.

More about TALIN

TALIN stands for Teaching and Learning in IsolatioN,

The idea for TALIN was prompted by suggestions in numerous cross-fertilizing communities of practice that there was needed a space where members of these CoPs could meet online and talk informally to one another about how they are dealing with changes in their personal and professional contexts and what they are doing to help others in this trying time of pandemic.

Learning2gether can host TALIN events in Zoom during times of isolation/lockdown if they are intended to be recorded and shared with the wider community, and if they take place between 02:00-14:00 UTC

Thu 9 April 11a.m. in Columbia – Martha Ramirez on Polleverywhere

I saw this on the morning of April 10 in Penang Malaysia. It was posted yesterday in Colombia but I’m not sure when that would have been since it’s was still yesterday in Colombia when I saw it just now. It says the event is tomorrow. Let’s check the video link hmmm apparently, already happened.

Martha’s presentation on Polleverywhere starts at 2:05:17… it’s in Spanish 🙂 and it was at first not permissible for embedding:
but that appears to have changed, so here it is:
