#GastaGoesGlobal – a gasta reflection

Less than a month ago (which certainly feels like a year ago) Tom Farrelly contacted me asking if I would take the risk to jump in and participate in a virtual Gasta session.  Gasta means quick or speedy in Irish – each presenter at a Gasta has 5 minutes to speak and they’re counted “on stage” in Irish. I of course was delighted and honored to be asked, and appreciated the chance to funnel some energy into this collaborative community event. The theme for the Gasta was “What Will (Online) Education Look Like.”

On Tuesday, April 14th, I was joined by six other incredible gastateers. Despite the distance, there was a great feeling of community – in the Zoom room, and, in the many associated backchannels, which certainly made me feel like I wasn’t “just” talking into the webcam alone.  Tom and his team did an incredible job orchestrating the event and I hope you enjoy jumping through all of the sessions! So, without further ado…here is my Gasta, titled Leigh Graves Wolf: Sometimes I Live in the Computer. 

1 = a haon (ah hain)
2 = a dó (ah dough)
3 = a trí (ah tree)
4 = a ceathair (ah cah-her)
5 = a cúig (ah coo-ig)
