Hi, Tiffany - will you be able to share the handout on the App Goals you developed (now on screen)? that would be great
Kyle Boysen

Jamie Harris

In reviewing the Toggl website, there are costs. Do they offer free accounts for educators?
Emi Fox
44:05
Thank you!
Victoria Neff

Thanks Kyle!

Hi Arezoo Miller from Silicon Valley Adult Education " Thank you.
Jessica Issiac
44:29
Can Hyperdocs be used on smartphones?
Gareth Wingfield
46:02
How easy it is to use Zoom to talk to students who are on their phones while they do work in something else, like a hyperdoc
Jeffery Pritchett
46:18
You sound like Nan. :)
Janet Kaplan-Bucciarelli
46:26
Hello from Western Mass. Jewish Family Service refugee resettlement/ESOL/pre-employment program.
Jeff GOumas
46:30
Hyperdocs tend to have a range of different activities. They might be housed/launched from a Google Doc, a tool such as Wakelet, or authors. So, I think ideally the entire hyperdoc might be on a computer….but the various activities within (videos, articles, Quizziz activities, etc) can be linked, many of which are mobile friendly.
Heather Ritchie
46:49
pretty easy to use zoom and other docs. students can zoom on phone.
Janet Kaplan-Bucciarelli
47:37
Hallelujah, Nan!
Emi Fox
47:48
Do students need to sign up for zoom, or can they just follow the link? Do they need an app?
Holly Parker
47:57
Greetings everyone..Holly Parker from Chicago City Colleges ADED
Kirsten P. Konefal
48:33
This is fabulous! Great work Nan. This is so relevant for me.
Tiffany Brand
48:43
In Zoom classes, in general they are not doing a Hyperdoc activity at the same time. Right now, teachers in my center are using Zoom class sessions to do ESL conversation. Hyperdoc type activities would be done outside of the live session.
Ebony Vandross
48:46
Please everyone stay muted at this time. Thank you!
Tiffany Brand
49:34
All our students need is the Zoom app and the meeting id - they don't need to create an account.
Julie Frost
50:03
Are phone numbers private on WhatsApp? We have to worry about sharing phone numbers.
Helaine marshall
50:07
WhatsApp is widely used outside of the US
Emi Fox
50:15
Thank you Julie!!
Tiffany Brand
50:56
Hyperdocs are in a Google Doc, so they can be viewed on phones. Depending on the activites, they can use their phone to complete them. My classes are digital literacy classes, so they are completing computer based activities - word processing, spreadsheets, etc. So they need a computer to do those.
Joshua Currie
50:59
WhatsApp is encrypted end to end
Helaine marshall
51:33
You set up a private group, give it a name, and only members of the group see all the group messages, photos, etc.
Helaine marshall
51:56
My family uses it when one or more of us is overseas.
Julie Frost
52:18
Thank you!
Tiffany Brand
52:31
I've only ever used the free version of Toggl - it's been enough for my needs.
Jeff GOumas
54:23
This is really great! It also has them using digital skills (taking photos, sharing photos) we know many of our learners are comfortable with :)
Helaine marshall
54:33
learner-centered!
Denise Myers
55:02
Amazing lesson! Thank you.
Lori Krane
55:15
She’s using WhatsApp on the computer?
Kyle Boysen
55:51
You can go to web.whatsapp.com and scan the QR code with your phone to connect.
Kyle Boysen
56:14
You need a valid phone number and the app on your phone to get started though.
Lucy Runkel
56:27
how is attendance/participation in the WhatsApp compared to in-person classes?
Helaine marshall
56:47
every solutions has its pros and cons, but this seems quite promising for SLIFE online
Janet Kaplan-Bucciarelli
57:27
I have done something similar, but my students starting sending videos and messages to each other and so I’m not sure how separate classwork and social connecting.
Heide Wrigley
57:31
best examples I've seen on working with low level/non-literate students who are not tech savvy - terrific stance on working with refugees
Helaine marshall
57:33
Transformational Learning!!!!
Susan Sanchez

David Rosen
01:00:52
There are several discussions now on LINCS Here is the link to one in the Integrating Technology group:https://community.lincs.ed.gov/discussion/preparing-and-offering-adult-basic-skills-online-during-pandemic#comment-28649
Jeff GOumas
01:01:11
I’m going to try again.
Theresa Stalick
01:02:20
I left this meeting. Tried to join the other, but ended up back here again. :/
Jeff GOumas
01:02:22
Still not able to get into meeting room 1
Claire Gilliam
01:02:31
Me either
Tiffany Brand
01:02:36
I can't get into the other room either
Karen Layton
01:02:47
can you put the link in the chat again? thank you
Briana Patriarca
01:02:47
Same. Said host is in another meeting.
Jeff GOumas
01:02:48
The link that was shared indicates that the account has another meeting in progress
Donna Smith
01:02:49
I'm stuck too
Tiffany Brand
01:02:51
It says the host is already running another meeting
Janet Kaplan-Bucciarelli
01:02:51
Nan, Are you holding class at a particular time with all students on WhatsApp at the same time or are you just posting and people respond when they can?
Jeff GOumas
01:02:57
Jen….Do you want me to create a new link?
Kirsten P. Konefal
01:03:05

Heather Minton-Turley
01:06:48
So, I am interested to hear from Nan because I am not a "techy" person that's my brother and sister. I am not familiar with using WhatsApp at all. I seems people go through how to use apps really fast and I don't really grasp how to use them.
Janet Kaplan-Bucciarelli
01:07:02
Mario was
Gareth Wingfield
01:07:33
Nan?
Theresa Stalick
01:07:36
Awkward
Kirsten P. Konefal
01:07:46
Will there be a time for participant questions?
Tina Scott
01:08:18
Did the teacher verification breakout session not work?
Kathleen O'Connell
01:08:24
Yes, there will be a time for participant questions.
Lori Krane
01:08:26
I tried to get into the alternate meeting and it said it hadn't started yet. Does anyone have advice?
Kyle Boysen
01:08:29
I wasn't able to get in.
Heather Minton-Turley
01:09:00
sorry but what and how are QR codes used?
Lori Krane
01:09:19
It says the host has another meeting in progress (both by phone and Zoom).
Susan Kocaba
01:09:22
Is there a way to hide the student phone numbers on WhatsApp? To keep them private?
Lee Ann Gunning
01:09:30
It may be helpful to have a separate webinar focused on using WhatsApp for the first time.
Denise Myers
01:09:32
Do you have to use your regular cell phone number and not your Google Voice number?
Jody Angelone
01:09:57
We have been hosting statewide support webinars in Ohio for our adult practitioners. We use Zoom and have used the breakout rooms, but we have had participants self-identify if they want to go to the breakout room (use raise hand or yes function buttons); then the host manually selected those individuals to move over; this works pretty seamlessly, but does take a few minutes to compete selection process. We also set the breakout room timer so the room automatically closed after allotted time and moved everyone back into the main room.
Susan Sanchez
01:10:11
How do you create a group in WhatsApp?
ElizabethBennett
01:10:56
Hi Heather, QR codes are images that your phone’s camera can scan. It takes you right to a website without you having to type the website yourself.
Kathy DeMeo
01:11:07
I have used Whats App as well to direct them to a Google Classroom I set up assignments
Heather Minton-Turley
01:11:40
oh, ok, I didn
Heather Minton-Turley
01:12:11
try this again. I didn't know that.
Jessica Issiac
01:12:14
But you CAN link WhatsApp to GoogleVoice numbers!!
janice bisch
01:12:57
Thanks Jessica
Jessica Issiac
01:13:02
My office has done it successfully but I'm not exactly sure how
Jessica Issiac
01:13:12
I might be able to ask though
Jhon Sanchez
01:13:15
Nan, I’m worried about socialization. Do you think we can encourage the creation of WhatsApp group for interactions among students?
Luanne
01:13:19
I don't know if it works with WhatsApp, but on a regular call if you dial *67 before the number, it will show your # as private.
Kathy DeMeo
01:14:10
I have read conflicting reports about the security of whats app. My friends in the government will not use it
Judith Travers
01:14:13
You can link what's app to a google voice number and you can have 2 what's app accounts on a phone
Janet Kaplan-Bucciarelli
01:14:42
Jhon, I started the student WhatsApp group before I had any class content to share and people immediately started sending videos and hellos to each other.
Ramona Lindsey
01:14:45
Will there be a way we can get a copy of the notes/bullet-points for this discussion?
Helaine marshall
01:15:24
LOL - this is true about her!
Michele Ameno
01:16:17
I was about to ask about receiving the discussion/notes from this session....
Helaine marshall
01:16:21
Like the Bow Valley books, but making your OWN!!
Janet Kaplan-Bucciarelli
01:16:25
I made a powerpoint, then recorded myself reading through it in Zoom, and posted the video on WhatsApp for my students to watch. It was great - and pretty easy, too.
Victoria Neff
01:16:44
Here are the notes!
Gareth Wingfield
01:16:46
So the videos are made inside WhatsApp itself? Or do you made the video on your phone and then upload it?
Victoria Neff
01:16:48
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1LoF8BrR3goN6BETQoKMOfbxYxTGn2NVhX0YgUqmnj_I/edit?ts=5e7cf432
Gareth Wingfield
01:16:52
Well that answers that!
Joan Ford
01:16:55
Instead of using What's App, could you use Jamboard in google to do the same thing?
Jennifer Kluempen
01:17:03
I have students who are sending me photos of their writing assignments on WhatsApp. They don't have a computer or laptop so this is their only device.
Janet Kaplan-Bucciarelli
01:17:30
It would be great to experience what Nan is explaining - with US on a WhatsApp call with her!
Susan Sanchez
01:18:08
Will we be able to get a copy of the notes?
Kirsten P. Konefal
01:20:03
SO agree. This is a moment for us to connect and stay connected.
Victoria Neff
01:20:09
@ Susan - yes the recording and notes will be shared
Susan Sanchez
01:20:18
Thank you!
Victoria Neff
01:20:31
Absolutely!
Jennifer Kluempen
01:20:35
About how many students are in a class at a time with you, Nan? would a larger group of 20 or more be too big to manage at once?
Michele Ameno
01:20:36
Thank you!
Denise Myers
01:20:55
I have a question but I don’t see the icon to raise my hand.
Kirsten P. Konefal
01:20:56
Also using zoom and I’m considering one level in what’s app and my higher level in zoom.
Jennifer Kluempen
01:22:05
YEs, this is my concern. Thank you for explaining. Class size is a real limitation.
Jen Vanek
01:22:08
Can you use a desktop version of Whats App to make it easier to type?
Jessica Issiac
01:22:26
Yes, Jen! There's a desktop app.
Jennifer Kluempen
01:22:27
I have a keyboard to use myself, but many students don't.
David Rosen
01:22:31
Nan, since you are new to using WhatsApp in this way for instruction, can you tell us how you so quickly acquired these skills. I recall seeing your initial request for help on LINCS. Did yogurt help from your colleagues?
Denise Myers
01:23:07
When did you start using WhatsApp during the crisis and how long did it take you to get it going at this time?
Jennifer Kluempen
01:25:01
I think you can continue on with the social basis you have established and build in that. The social part is important too.
Tina Scott
01:25:17
Just got back here. Will there be further discussion about teacher verification model?
Jen Vanek
01:25:33
How about one last question and then we do wrap up from the other group.
Jen Vanek
01:25:35
?
Zita Toth
01:25:52
WhatsApp actually saves pics and videos into your camera roll on your phone.
Jessica Issiac
01:26:01
That feature can be turned off
Helaine marshall
01:27:08
well-stated!
Zita Toth
01:27:32
Thanks for the tip!
Silja Kallenbach
01:27:52
I'd call it digital resilience! Kudos to you, Nan, and all others who have jumped into the distance ed fray making do with the tools at your disposal.
Kirsten P. Konefal
01:28:12
Fabulous. Thanks everyone.
Jennifer Kluempen
01:28:33
Thank you so much for sharing, Nan!
Tina Scott
01:28:47
I was never able to get the teacher verification group to work.
Patti-Lynn Harmon
01:29:00
Thank you.
Jhon Sanchez
01:29:10
Thank you
Sarah Ambeault
01:29:12
Thanks
Kathy Woodson
01:29:15
Just wondered if you have access to Breakout rooms from Zoom?
Ebony Vandross
01:29:26
We will share a recording of the 2nd groups discussion as well for those interested
Jennifer Messina
01:29:39
Thanks!
Lori Krane
01:29:40
Can you email the notes from the Teacher Verification group? I couldn't get there.

Alright, I'm sorry but I have a meeting I need to join.
Ginette Chandler
01:32:17
NH is all about local control and we have a policy where we respect the role of our adult education practitioners and rely on them for Teacher Verification Models. Teachers can also verify or check with learners about the time they've reported being online by asking questions.
Helaine marshall
01:33:26
YAY for LINCS!!!!
Jeff GOumas
01:34:07
That will be amazing! Thank you Jen & the EdTech Center!! :)

PA only allows our teachers to use Khan, WIN, and USALearns because they document time.
