Getting ready, set-up for Camera - ACTION.
Okay it wasn’t exactly a ticker tape parade success …..But I think we all know once the broken bits are fixed this will be one fabulous teaching tool.
I should think this is similar to what Mr J.Baird said about the first TV set.
We entered what was a hive of activity at the Enable Office and were ushered into the futuristic sounding POD to see Chris' newtoys it sounds very cutting edge but in reality we entered a disused storage room and stared at a table with a flat screen TV with a black thingy on top which apparently costs thousands. Chris introduced us all to the new technology very much like a very proud father showing off his first born. The black thingy, I am reliably informed, is a remote control camera, these remote controls were kept within easy reach guarded by Chris, much like a lioness fiercely protects her cubs.
As we were online and the system activated the presentation went ahead with Nik filming proceeding as if it was a Spielberg blockbuster. I think doing the trial was enormously beneficial for all concerned as it extended peoples knowledge into the video conferencing world.
Anna did her talk on autism, I wasn’t there but understand from Chris and Nik she held the children’s attention with her story and answered all their questions.
As far as I could tell Nik and the team were particularly pleased with her talk.
IT’S A WRAP ! WELL DONE EVERYBODY.
