Virtual Scouting: Ali from Oxfordshire

Ali is a cub scout leader in oxfordshire now running a virtual cub pack.

We’ll be following ali with her weekly audio diary as she develops her virtual programme.

Ali is using a piece of software called webex to run a video conference based cub meeting each Tuesday.

Ali’s first tip was to do your first online cub meeting from your headquarters if you can to set the scene and provide context for the cubs.

It wasn’t all plain sailing though, and some of the cubs has a bit of trouble finding the mute button!

Ali adapted her previously planned programme to work online.

Instead of the cubs whittling with knives, she deomnstrated knife safety and cubs were encouraged to try out their own knives with their parents

Next up was the campfire. And the whole pack learned about internet lag!
