Life has changed hasn’t it.
This weekend we would have been visiting our Grandchildren in the South, and whilst I am really sad we are not seeing them ‘for real’, actually I saw them a few days ago via zoom, which I am sure many of us are now using. What I realised, during that zoom meeting, as they showed us their drawings and the cakes they had made with their parents, was that I was seeing something via the internet they had not shared before, and that is their daily lives and educational activities.
I’ve also been inspired by seeing things on social media that our members are doing to help with their grandchildren’s education, for example Sue Hutton has started reading stories for her grandchildren and putting the recordings on YouTube for them to watch, which I bet the love.
So what I would like to do is create an East Midlands RPS book that tells the story of our virtual engagement at this time with the members of our family's education who do not live with us. I am looking for a few members to supply a few words and a few images so we can create the book that will be published initially online to show the changes and opportunities this time has created for us.
- But you do not have to write the words or take the photographs! What would be equally great is if you inspired your family members to create something that shared their daily lives with you, and us in the book
- Let them know it might be published please
If you would like to get involved please send your images and words to me at firstname.lastname@example.org please.
