Reading this, it sounds like the Kubi's were there, but you didn't have an advocate in the room - so you didn't have someone to translate what you needed to know but could not see. It would be interesting to compare this approach to that taken by Matt Croslin at last years OLC Innovate - where we had VC in the room on a laptop - but it wasn't just that we had someone in the room advocating for the virtual people, Matt was also highly aware of the virtual presence ... so it changed the way he facilitated the session.
It reminds me of the first time I taught with a deaf student and translator. I was teaching practice 'how to' stuff on, so the translator highlights to me that it was better if I could not just show the mouse on the screen but also say where it was (so not just putting the mouse in the top right corner and saying "here" but actually saying "top right corner") otherwise the deaf student had to watch both the translator and the screen at the same time (not really possible). The point is, I had to make some small changes in how I taught so that my deaf student could learn. I see that as some of the same challenge - when you have virtual participants, you need to be aware of how they are disadvantaged and work to try to reduce that disadvantage. You cannot assume that virtual and onsite are equivalent.

Wonder what teachers / professors think about leaving public comments on student's blogs? (I always tell students they are free to delete my comments).

OK google ... you send me to Plus to setup a Hangout On Air then don't give me any clues where you have hidden the start or setup hangout buttons!

Hi everyone,

I decided very last minute to participate in this years Canary Challenge. I'll be doing a 50km ride in support of Stanford Cancer Research. If you can please help by making a donation to: https://secure.e2rm.com/registrant/FundraisingPage.aspx?registrationID=3117938&langPref=en-CA

Also, I'm hiking in the peak hike for prevention. Again, donations would be appreciated. http://prevention.breastcancerfund.org/site/TR/Events/General?px=1267289&pg=personal&fr_id=1522

Thanks
Becky
