This was the second attempt at Minnie Wang’s Featured Performance, Internet Plays an Important Role in Self-education, originally scheduled for last weekend’s Teachers Learning2gether Summit https://learning2gether.net/2020/10/10/teachers-learning2gether-summit-on-the-new-normal-to-survive-lockdown/

At that URL there was left a placeholder that says

Sat 10 Oct 1400-1430 UTC Minnie Wang (Featured Session)

Internet Plays an Important Role in Self-education
16:00-16:30 pm in Cairo

This presentations had to be cancelled on the day scheduled because Minnie could not reach zoom.us from China due to something unusual about that Zoom URL (normally she can reach private Zoom rooms)

However, the presentation was rescheduled for Oct 18, noon UTC

And this is that presentation 🙂

Minnie’s ‘Featured Performance’ was actually a presentation based on her experience learning the musical instrument Guzheng online. She also talked about her background in teaching, and teaching herself English online, through the Internet in China. She expects to be retired from the company where she works in 5 years and is making a plan now to teach English and Chinese online. She lists Learning2gether and Webheads as two of her very significant influences and resources in pursuit of her goal.


Zoom Chat Logs

Besides Minnie and I, the meeting was attended only by Claire Siskin, who arrived just after Minnie had finished presenting, so we had a brief conversation before saying good night, or have a nice day in Claire’s case. We did not use the Zoom chat during the event.

But Hanaa Khamis scheduled a watch party for the event. Here is her invitation (this is an image and the play button doesn’t work – you can find the actual video embedded in the Promotions and Feedback section below):

Nancy White: Face Your Online Meeting Demons One Scribble At A Time

Managing online meetings and remote work can be challenging and sometimes (haha, always?) anxiety-inducing. In this session, Nancy White will invite us to explore a range of Liberating Structures (http://www.liberatingstructures.com) group process patterns to explore and overcome these challenges using writing, drawing and maybe even physical movement.

Please bring:

  • Some A4 paper (recycled is fine – just have one side clean!)
  • A pen or pencil
  • A willingness to be involved

Nancy White is the founder of Full Circle Associates, her consulting practice that includes an extensive network of professionals, working in facilitation, online communities and collaboration. She is co-author with John Smith and Etienne Wenger of Digital Habitats: Stewarding Technology for Communities (CPSquare 2009). She is a frequent contributor and a past core group member of KM4Dev, a global networked community of international development practitioners who are interested in knowledge management and knowledge sharing issues and approaches, who seek to share ideas and experiences in this domain. Nancy is a leading thinker, writer, and practitioner of online facilitation (group facilitation for distributed environments).
