GRUEN web conferences: Saturday and Sunday, May 9 and 10
by Brant Knützen - Friday, 8 May 2020, 3:57 AM
 

Hello GRUEN participants!

The plan is for groups to work on their GRUEN designs (criteria and ideas) until May 10, and then start working on their presentations until May 24.   Presentations could be slide shows (PPT, Genially, etc), or narrated videos.  If you can host your presentation on a free website, that'd be a great way to archive and share your work with others!  (WordPress, others).

I will open an assignment to collect the presentation files by May 24.

This is a reminder that I will host web conferences on both Saturday and Sunday this weekend, May 9 and 10.

I will open the "Present your GRUEN" unit and review the criteria for evaluating your GRUEN designs.

The web conferences will be in the afternoon / evening: 4pm in Spain, 7pm in Pakistan, 7:30pm in India, 7:45pm in Nepal, and 10pm in Hong Kong / Singapore.   All GRUEN participants are welcome to attend these optional conferences!

The link to the web conference is: https://gruen.adobeconnect.com/main/

Students can login using their phones, tablets, laptops, and desktop PCs or Macs.

Mobile users can download the free Connect app from Adobe, and PC/Mac users can download the app or just load the link in their browsers.  Better to use the app, so you can use a microphone!  Just go in as a Guest, and type the name you want me to call you.

I recommend headphones / ear buds if you want to hear clearly, and to avoid any echos if you want to use voice.  The room is always open, and I highly recommend that you try loading the software and entering the room at least 30 minutes before the conference, to make sure you can troubleshoot any problems.  Once in the room, there's a pull-down menu under Meetings, select Audio Setup Wizard to test that your speakers and microphone work ok.

If you haven't answered it yetI have set up a poll so each participant can indicate their preference for a Saturday or Sunday conference, or on both days, at: https://participativelearning.org/mod/choice/view.php?id=1724    

Please indicate your preference!
