Georgia has had a “stormy” couple of weeks
Elizabeth Bennion

WELCOME, ALL!

Andy Pop recommends PIC-RAT. A 3X3 matrix: passive vs. interactive; replication vs. transformation.

Is it free?
Alexander Pope
17:33
Almost all of the tools we’re looking at over this series have both free and paid tiers, depending on what features interest you.
Elizabeth Bennion
17:53
There is a FREE version and a paid version. Virbela creates a virtual space for interaction using avatars. It provides a more realistic, classroom-like experience for students and easier assessment for instructors.
Byron Craig
18:54
Alright for those Boots sis!
Felice Nudelman
21:54
Welcome to all! We are talking about Virbela right now, but feel free to ask questions. We’ll also have a Q&A time after Margot shows us the basics of Virbela.
Elizabeth Bennion
26:16
I saw a great presentation on whiteboard.fi today. It seems super-simple for students to use. It might be another option . . .
Elizabeth Bennion
32:28
So cute! Aww . . . Dads@work - love it!
Adam Maksl
33:27
Dancing is a key skill!
Adam Maksl

VirBELA has been developing a new platform that is browser-based, which is something I would recommend keeping an eye on: https://learn.framevr.io/
Elizabeth Bennion
35:32
Yes! The fact that Chromebooks and iPads cannot run it seems like a deal breaker for us . . . a browser-based option that can run on more computers and tablets would be great!
Adam Maksl
36:02
There are some other potential options for this kind of VR: https://www.meetinvr.com/
Cathy Copeland

We have some resources listed here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1VCh0yUaRhvubYo4MtyWx3IWAiV_a6SZY?usp=sharing

Sounds a bit smoother than dropping into the breakout room

Our teaching and learning center has small tech grants with rolling deadlines now, too! They are TERRIFIC! Super-quick turnaround! I recommend that all teaching centers add this option!

I'll also send the link in an email later too.
Elizabeth Bennion

HOT TAKE on Slack: Create free workplaces. with channels (#eventplanning, #research, #budget, etc.). You can decide who accesses the workspace and the channels. You can add various tools to the channels (e.g. Doodle polls).
Alexander Pope
51:51
I’m on an iPad right now - same functionality as on a desktop or phone. And lots and lots and lots of ways to customize notifications (I don’t get PACE notifications on teaching days, for instance)
Alexander Pope
53:38
If you’re a OneDrive campus, that integrates wonderfully. You can post directly from OneDrive so folks can edit with one click - no download/edit/upload mess.
Jean Abshire
54:23
I use Slack in class & I always mention to students that it is widely used in workplaces so that's something they can put in the technology platforms section of their resumes.
Margot Morgan
54:36
Good point, Jean!
Bekah Selby
58:49
Question for Abbi: Was it a difficult to learn how to use Slack?
Margot Morgan
59:16
FYI: Slack is the augmenting app of choice for Reacting to the Past games run both face-to-face and on Zoom. Jean Abshire and I have both used it in our games and it has been an amazing way for students to plot strategy — thousands of messages per game.
Elizabeth Bennion
59:32
Question: How do notifications work? Does each user decide where and how often those appear?
Bekah Selby
59:40
Does it have video chat options?
Margot Morgan
59:55
Elizabeth: Yes, you get to choose your notification preferences
Elizabeth Bennion
01:02:36
Our Outlook emails were all recently migrated so that they will be consistent with Microsoft Teams. I am guessing that this type of project management is behind the move . . . (even though we are a Zoom campus for classes and conferencing).
Elizabeth Bennion
01:04:21
Great point. That is frustrating that you can't bring students into Teams! This is the first I am hearing about this. Can you do it if you authorize them (e.g. interns)?
Elizabeth Bennion
01:04:54
Or they are on the work-study payroll, for example.
Elizabeth Bennion
01:06:05
Nice, Cathy! We might need a separate workshop session featuring a classroom use DEMO (including one that combines Zoom and Slack).
Cathy Copeland
01:06:40
I will say, Elizabeth, we figured out how to bring students into Teams for a Dept of Defense class that we were teaching. It's not as easy to understand and flexible as Slack though.
Elizabeth Bennion
01:08:09
If you want to access the ADP Civic Watch server you can go here: https://discord.gg/TRNrPyb8Sx

If you do not have an account yet, you can quickly create one. It's free!

Abbi Pettinati
01:15:00
I have to head out, thank you everyone! Have a good weekend
Cathy Copeland
01:15:09
Thanks, Abbi!
Alexander Pope
01:15:12
Thanks Abbi!
Bekah Selby
01:15:56
I had a student in Colombia joining my class as well! It works really well around the world
Christy Flatt
01:16:46
I'm currently using Slack with students in Kurdistan.
Alexander Pope
01:16:59
Very cool
Alexander Pope
01:20:36
KT954 gets it
Bekah Selby
01:21:26
The CivicWatch Server is SOOOO cool. Lots of really interesting discussion and resource sharing
Elizabeth Bennion
01:24:48
We used Discord for both presidential debates, the VP debate, two gubernatorial debates, and a local congressional debate.
Elizabeth Bennion
01:25:05
Good for any live speech, TV program, movie release online, etc.
Elizabeth Bennion
01:27:39
My FIRST time was an ADP workshop and I didn't understand it. ONCE students understand it, they love it!
Elizabeth Bennion
01:27:49
It breaks down the distance between the instructor and students, too.
Elizabeth Bennion
01:28:54
Each participant can CHOOSE whether to use text only, voice, or video even if they are in a voice channel.
Elizabeth Bennion
01:29:07
Like in Zoom, they don't HAVE to unmute or turn on the video.
Margot Morgan
01:29:20
At a national Model UN conference this year, the informal caucuses were done on Discord voice channels — in terms of assessment, it was easy to assess participation thru Discord.
Elizabeth Bennion
01:30:53
When you are WATCHING a debate, you don't want to be hearing other voices or seeing additional faces.
Alexander Pope
01:33:20
So many just aren’t marketed to higher ed, or don’t make it to the notice of upper admin to filter to the campus as a whole
Elizabeth Bennion
01:33:51
Plus, I think campuses were so focused on getting faculty ONLINE for the first time and, for this reason, kept things simple by moving everybody toward the same tech (e.g.Canvas + Zoom). Now there is time for folks to explore . . .
Jean Abshire
01:34:22
Zoom backgrounds don't work for everyone. Not sure why but even on a laptop, mine doesn't work, so that may not be a good alternative for students who want privacy.
Elizabeth Bennion
01:35:36
I wish the Zoom chat has a thumbs up option -- or options to respond with another emoji.
Alexander Pope
01:35:37
I’ve long thought that a lot of note-taking was performative. This year I’ve been wondering how that relates to the camera situation...
Alexander Pope
01:35:47
Yes Elizabeth 👍🏼
Alexander Pope
01:36:03
(It’s only available if you have it on your keyboard)
Elizabeth Bennion
01:36:32
I hate talking to black boxes in Zoom, but having text-only on Discord was great because we were watching a common event and it was easy to see who was active and to @ somebody if they were quiet.
Margot Morgan
01:36:53
I agree, Elizabeth.

I need to hop off. Thanks to everyone who made this possible!
