On Tue Apr 21, 1400 UTC, Carla Arena presented in the TALIN2020 Zoom room on Amplifica – Nation-Wide Learning Experiences for Brazilian Students at home – a national project in Brazil to provide content for k-9 students plus help educators develop professionally.

This was incorrect — actually Learning2gether episode 452 and TALIN webinar #10 🙂

The name Simplifica was also incorrect. I remember at the time that I was googling it and and asking Carla for it’s link, but we missed on reconciling the name of the organization before, during, or after her presentation, when I created this post.

Now, August 15, 2020, Carla has posted about the 5th anniversary of AMPLIFICA



So I’ve gone back and corrected the name everywhere I could find it 🙂

More about TALIN

This was Learning2gether episode 452 and TALIN event #10

TALIN stands for Teaching and Learning in IsolatioN, https://tinyurl.com/talin2020

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

If you want to propose an event

  1. Visit this page https://tinyurl.com/talin2020
  2. Click on “Request Edit Access” to the left of your profile picture at the top of the page
  3. Wait for approval
  4. Write in your event on the schedule. Give the time in UTC if you can, and give the time in your location also as a double check on time

You can host the event yourself, but if you want Learning2gether to host it and promote it, please allow enough time to check that I am available, at least a few days in advance.
