I think that a conference call would be great, but do you think that maybe we could get something going where we had a group on some sort of application, such as WhatsApp? If people have a way to communicate more quickly, then some questions that are more urgent maybe answered in a more timely manner. I love our mailing list, but I was thinking that it would be great for us to be able to communicate in more ways than one.

This Sunday the board of the national organization of blind educators is meeting via conference call, and one of the things that we are going to be planning is a real-time conference call to be held at the end of March where our members, including folks from this mailing list who wish to attend, can speak together about issues relating to teaching as blind people.

Unfortunately, I an unexpected   health crisis and was unable to coordinate the effort to get that done. But we will absolutely have such a call before the end of March.
