Film Recommendation - AMREEKA

A film that GEC members might be interested in is AMREEKA (http://www.amreeka.com/). It's the story of a Palestinian woman and her son who move to the US circa the Gulf War. They encounter many difficulties, but surmount them with humor and love.It's a family movie and is distributed by National Geographic.



I think it gives an accurate impression on what life in occupied territories is like and shows the prejudices new immigrants to the U.S may encounter. I would have taken my… Continue

YackPack Walkie Talkie Widget for Cities Around the World Project

This widget allows one to talk when the press the button, and listen when someone else is pressing the same button, I think. I'd love to test it with someone so let me know if you're up for it. I put this walkie talkie thing on the front page for the Cities Around the World wiki (https://citiesaroundtheworld.wikispaces.com/), too, so that project participants might chat with each… Continue

Housekeeping

FYI, I've removed the animated map from the front page. In addition to being slightly annoying with its animation, it seems to load down the page and makes it hard for people with bandwith issues to see in a reasonable amount of time. I tend to go widget happy with these sorts of pages, so let me know if anything else is bogging down your loading time. The Frappr map is still available and there's a link on the front page.

Yes Lucy, it's great to disseminate educational values through such state of the arts technology. More grease to your elbow.

This is indeed amazing. I must admit internet is no more of stranger than we used to be in the late 2000's. From the devices to tablets to Computers or notebooks, everyone craves to be on a social media network. No wonder telecommunication companies likeOrange, Airtel or MTN have been letting their users get access to this service. So it would be fair to say most Ugandans especially elite, youths, town dwellers and few in the villages are connected on the internet.

However the issue of internet speeds still remains. 

All generally said...we are good to go and crave for those speeds...The Sky is the Limit when you are connected!

Hi Lucy!

Thank you for the opportunity to present at this year's GEC.  I believe we were both at this year's Google Summit at GBN, but I didn't get a chance to talk to you.  I love working with Judi!  Glad to hear we have so many common connections.  I enjoy following you on twitter!

Dear Lucy,

I was confused simply because it is so difficult to surf and follow all the instruction! Just due to the site is always slow or busy.... But I could manage it...

Hi Lucy!

I was a member of the International Committee and moderated a session during the Global Education Conference week. I was wondering - do we get any sort of certificate for being moderators or part of the International Committee?

Thanks for your great work and for making possible this fantastic network experience,

Best regards,

Rosabel Roig
