I wasn't going to post today, but I did my first volunteer session with the Soles and Somes project and then I read Stephen Downes comments and links to another post on "The Granny Cloud". Erin (daughter) and I both participated in a session this afternoon. I'm a little uncertain myself about the whole Granny cloud thing and she is definitely not a granny, but we had a good time talking to 3 12 year olds in Bogota, Columbia today. I'm glad we had Columbians instead of Indians as the children spoke very little English. Both Erin and I speak a little Spanish - enough to have a getting acquainted sort of conversation. We got a huge kick out of it and now I am thinking about how I will plan the second session next week. I think the goal here is to get the children to speak some English. We did some of that, but need some games or something that will encourage it.
