A place to be present for a few minutes

Last night I watched the #vted community on Twitter connect as they joined
in a Twitter Chat moments after Governor Scott's announcement.  Thank you
somuch Tim, Brian, Jason for organizing a time for folks to connect --it's
as if you predicted a time  that would exemplify the topic you wanted to
chat about ""The Roles Schools Can Play in Maintaining Relationships and a
Sense of Community"

 Here is a Wakelet collection of the #vted chat yesterday evening starting
with the breaking news from the Governors office that quickly moved into
the scheduled Twitter chat #vted

One of the sentiments captured during the chat (and also on this listserv
earlier this week)  is that multiple platforms and means of communication
would be key to helping us make it through this time and meeting our
various needs at different time. (Snail Mail was even brought up)

In response to that I set up a Virtual Water Cooler using Google Meet for
any of you who want to take a coffee break with each other today.  Let's
call it 10:00 o'clock for 10 minutes or so. and then perhaps "on the hour".
11:00 or noon or 1:00  or 2:00 or 3:00  for anyone who just wants to walk
up to the virtual Water Cooler and replenish for a 10 minute  stretch
break.  (sorry about all the mixed metaphors)  If you just need to breath
with someone else- who just happens to be walking up to the water cooler at
the same time. drop on in....
