From Khan Academy for families: Daily Homeroom with Sal Khan and Bill Gates

For those looking for things to do with their families to keep abreast of COVID-19, this event on youtube/facebook might be of interest. Somewhat US-focussed in content and the time zone is not so convenient for much of the world, but you can likely catch recordings later. You’ll note Sal Khan and Bill Gates are conversing on 2020-04-03T19:00:00Z, but this event is scheduled for every week day at that time.

You may also be heartened to learn that this crisis is opening the hearts and minds of many more Americans than ever before to the kinds of challenges communities in other parts of the world have been grappling with for generations.

Details follow.

Khan Academy is doing all we can to bring you expert advice to provide practical tips for the top issues you face. Join us for live questions and answers on “Daily Homeroom” with Sal at 12:00 pm PT / 3:00 pm ET on Facebook and YouTube.

I watched this today and it was quite interesting. It was like eavesdropping on a skype call, being able to see both sides on a video split screen. Sal Khan, the founder of Khan Academy, was on one end and on the other was a psychologist. The two of them chatted, and Sal asked questions received via youtube.

If you can join me here tomorrow and tune in, we could chat live here about it - add a reply here if you want to try to do that. This can be one more way to create the community we crave as we try to keep up with our jobs while also trying to support our children to continue learning while staying safe at home. :seedling:
