The Granny Cloud

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.
