Zero Dollar Laptop Workshops Reusing old, unused laptops with Free, Open Source Software

March 18, 2010

Week 9. Mock Interviews. Getting ready for the event.

Filed under: The Workshops — Tags: , , — olga @ 1:48 pm

Today we dedicated our workshops to practicing and rehearsing what we will be doing next week. We did some mock interviews, took some pictures, wrote the articles and uploaded the results below. Some new and very interesting discussions took place. On the one hand we discussed the practicalities involved in an interview: questions need to be shorter and sharper than we thought, we need to be strategic in choosing the questions, we need to be teams of three people to make sure we have everything covered (one asks questions, the other one takes pictures, and the other takes notes). On the other hand we continued the discussions about what’s important to communicate: issues of isolation and social integration were particularly present in the discussion.

She said it ultimately it would be a shame if it closed as it is the only resource centre in the area.She said she’s been the literacy teacher at bridge for a year she said the main problem was with funding.

She said people was gradually told in a meeting that they would be made redundant.
