UPDATES: ASSIGNMENTS, CONFERENCE CALLS, AND OTHER QUESTIONS
Greetings, Dearest Correspondents!
The conference calls this morning and last week were as incredible as they were frustrating! Incredible because of the fearlessness, tenacity and patience you each exhibited. And, if you were able to join the call, the wisdom and astuteness your questions and comments revealed was humbling. They were frustrating because even when some of you were able to get on the call, slow connections like Gertrude's, meant you kept getting bumped off. Or maybe like Halima, you could hear, but not be heard! Never has the phrase, "so close, yet so far away," meant more!
Just writing about our first calls is making me giddy and filled with such pride. We are learning rapidly and overcoming hurdles together. Despite the bumps, we are leveraging technology for empowerment, connection, and change!
Hopefully this post will give you the tools you need to stay on top of the program, or when life gets in the way, catch up. There are two pages I want each Correspondent to bookmark, add as a favorite, or save in some way. They are the profile page to this group and the Voices of Our Future Classroom.
Both the profile page for this group and the landing page for the classroom will provide LINKS to the most important information for successful participation in the program, including:
- Learning Material
- Assignments: I have added full details about the interview, plus the deadline has been extended to July 5, 2009.
- Agenda and Schedule for conference calls, plus instructions on how to access the calls.
- Frequently Asked Questions: The FAQ answers questions about deadlines, time zones, stipends, press passes, how to bookmark or add a page as a favorite, and how to manage your notifications.
If you have any questions about the program, please do not hesitate to ask me, Scott or Cristi. We are here for you.
