A Change of Platform: Ali’s Audio Diary Week 3

News, Oxford
https://scout.radio/play/virtual-scouting-alis-audio-diary-week-3/ We join Ali to find out how the group are getting on in their third week of virtual scouting. The group have moved from Webex to zoom and really like the breakout feature. This week the cubs made wool and Ali and the team tackled the problem of linking between sections that should be happening over the week. Ali also discusses the difficulties the group have had keeping their scout section running as the scout leaders are key workers and aren't able to run the section as easily as the other leaders.

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 wit...
