SOMEs = Self-Organized Mediation Environments

 

12 November 2009

 

 

We had tech problems once again. The first part of the session was me trying to guide them into fixing the sound problems on their side, because I couldn't hear or see them. I kept going over the menus and thinking of different possibilities. We also disconnected and connected back a couple of times, but nothing improved.

 

Once again their wish to stay on despite the problems - they could hear me, but I couldn't hear them, so they had to reply by text - was revealed. I don't remember why, but I started talking about my family. (The chatlog doesn't always clarify everything.) I told them my parents' age, what they did, about my two brothers, niece and nephews. And a couple of them told me a little bit about their families.

 

Then they wanted to know about Portugal and I tried to have them open a link for an interactive world atlas. But I wasn't successful in my explanation and they weren't able to open a second link I gave them, either.

 

There would be many more possibilities to diversify our sessions if they knew how to open a link and follow instructions I gave them. I'm sure they'll learn soon. And I hope the hardware will collaborate.  :-)

Pre and post session chat with Suneeta

[12-11-2009 9:28:06] Suneeta Kulkarni: Hi, Any sign of MAIM? I can't see them online.... but they did conect on time yesterday and day before...without a reminder for 3 different sessions, so I am hopeful for today :)

[12-11-2009 9:28:55] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: not yet, suneeta.

[12-11-2009 9:29:21] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: they're usually here on time

...

[12-11-2009 9:30:21] Suneeta Kulkarni: I could call but I thought we could give them a few minutes and se what happens

[12-11-2009 9:30:36] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: sure. no need to hurry

[12-11-2009 9:31:00] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: did you get to read my feedback from last week's session? it was fabulous!

[12-11-2009 9:31:21] Suneeta Kulkarni: Want wean them away from these constant reminders, but it does mean leting things not happen every so often...

[12-11-2009 9:32:38] Suneeta Kulkarni: No, unfortunately not yet...  hopefully by tomorrow... we've also had storm conditions here and I had connectivity problems :(

[12-11-2009 9:32:50] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: if they miss a session for some reason, no problem with me. i'm always multitasking, so i'm not wasting time

[12-11-2009 9:33:08] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: i see.

[12-11-2009 9:33:27] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: i think you'll enjoy the feedback. i also sent it to mabel

[12-11-2009 9:34:03] Suneeta Kulkarni: well they are now online and calling ME! I am trying to tell them to call off and call YOU!

[12-11-2009 9:34:28] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: i still don't see them as being online

[12-11-2009 9:34:49] Suneeta Kulkarni: that happens sometimes... that's why I asked you?

[12-11-2009 9:40:52] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: they're asking you for tech help, aren't they?

[12-11-2009 9:41:36] Suneeta Kulkarni: Can you see them... because I can see them now... You can try calling them or sending them a message to start it off

[12-11-2009 9:42:03] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: i can't see or hear them, but they see and hear me

[12-11-2009 9:43:11] Suneeta Kulkarni: oh, okay, they are asking how to turn on the video,,, have given them instructions

[12-11-2009 9:43:36] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: ok. still don't have their video or sound

[12-11-2009 9:44:07] Suneeta Kulkarni: okay... let's see what happens... atleast they are trying

[12-11-2009 9:44:10] Suneeta Kulkarni: :)

[12-11-2009 9:44:32] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: sure. i think it's great!

[12-11-2009 9:48:17] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: they say it's not working and i suggested we try jus sound

[12-11-2009 9:49:05] Suneeta Kulkarni: okay, good idea

[12-11-2009 9:56:17] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: we're still trying things, connecting and disconnecting, etc

[12-11-2009 9:56:33] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: i still don't hear them

[12-11-2009 9:56:55] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: have there been connection problems with other mentors?

[12-11-2009 9:57:09] Suneeta Kulkarni: okay... perhaps you stick to text messages for today and perhaps have them open up links etc...

[12-11-2009 9:57:51] Suneeta Kulkarni: yes... the video has been problematic this week and the technician is away. He was to ahve been back today but hasn't answered any calls all day... I have called him several times

[12-11-2009 9:58:13] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: i see

[12-11-2009 9:58:45] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: i couldn't hear or see them last week either, but the session went on very nicely

[12-11-2009 9:58:59] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: i'm waiting for them to call me back

[12-11-2009 9:59:35] Suneeta Kulkarni: what heppens when you call? Is it any different?

[12-11-2009 9:59:47] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: no, it isn't

[12-11-2009 9:59:58] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: but we've been trying it both ways

[12-11-2009 10:00:57] Suneeta Kulkarni: oh, ok

[12-11-2009 10:09:30] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: nothing seems to be working  :(

[12-11-2009 10:10:45] Suneeta Kulkarni: oh dear... but I guess we will have to give them credit for trying... I will try and get another technician to come in and check out the problem

[12-11-2009 10:10:55] Suneeta Kulkarni: Why don't you carry on with your routine?

[12-11-2009 10:11:30] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: sure. all the credit to them  :)

[12-11-2009 10:12:54] Suneeta Kulkarni: yes.. and we will have these ups and down before we know how to 'get it right' all the time... or most of the time, anyway :)

[12-11-2009 10:13:02] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: i'm talking to them about my family and they will write about theirs

[12-11-2009 10:13:17] Suneeta Kulkarni: oh good!

[12-11-2009 10:33:24] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: they were able to open an image i sent them with euros

[12-11-2009 10:33:40] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: and they loved it

[12-11-2009 10:35:16] Suneeta Kulkarni: oh good... so atleast something was possible...

[12-11-2009 10:35:34] Suneeta Kulkarni: I guess we will have to inch forward, bit, by bit!

[12-11-2009 10:36:35] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: absolutely. they are very patient

[12-11-2009 10:36:57] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: i need to go now, suneeta

[12-11-2009 10:37:18] Suneeta Kulkarni: yes... we have a lot to learn from them... the odds they face... and yet their enthusiasm ... So do I... catch you later

[12-11-2009 10:37:19] Teresa Almeida d'Eca: pls let me know if the technician goes and things are fixed

[12-11-2009 10:37:23] Suneeta Kulkarni: bye and take care
