We’re trying something new in 2020–here’s a quick overview.
Every 3-4 weeks we’ll host a live online chat on a specific early learning related topic. These free and informal sessions will be be aimed at both parents and caregivers.
The plan is to experiment with both general discussion sessions and sessions featuring special guests.
The goals for these sessions are to:
Sessions will generally be scheduled on weeknights, although there may be a weekend session offered from time to time. Sessions will run for 60-90 minutes.
I’ll create an individual post here at Playvolution HQ for each session that’ll have session details and log on information.
Remember those posts I mentioned in the previous sentence? While, the comment section of those posts can be used for post-session discussion of the topic, sharing of links, and other followup.
Can’t make one of the ECE Discussion sessions live? Don’t worry, we’ll make recordings available here at Playvolution HQ and on the Explorations Early Learning Vimeo channel within 10 days of the live session. Patrons will have early access to the recordings.
We’ll announce sessions times, topics, and special guests via the Explorations Early Learning Toys Facebook page, our podcast feeds, and in our monthly Training and Event Newsletter .
These ECE Discussions will take place via the Zoom meeting platform.
Participants can click a link to join via any computer, tablet, or smartphone that has a decent internet connection or ‘dial’ in with an old-school phone call.
We’ve used the Zoom platform for quite a while and find it to be very intuitive, feature rich, and easy to use.
