GUILD SCHOOL 2021
June 12-18, 2021
Maine Maritime Academy, Castine, Maine

The Best Week of the Year!
Countdown: 385 days, 1 hour, 15 minutes


VIRTUAL GUILD SCHOOL 2020
June 12-20, 2020

We can't all be together for the "best week of the year"         so let's have fun and connect anyway!


COUNTDOWN: 20 DAYS!
There are ways we can communicate thru internet and social media to virtually simulate some of the week's activities. We can "pretend" we are at school! Some of these ideas will happen in the moment and others thru postings before and after the event. See the link for Zoom video chat instructions below. The activities will be posted the week of school on the school page on the IGMA website Virtual Guild School 2020 Week.  https://www.igma.org/guild_school/virtual.html
Keep this link for easy access. It will go "live" with daily postings the week of school.

An outline of the week is posted now. In order for this to work, you can all participate thru having Zoom meetings, sending photos, and shopping online. I'll send reminders thru email blasts and postings on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/igma.guildschool Find ways to connect with friends who don't regularly check-in online. 

I've summarized the week here, and you can get more details by reviewing the last email Guild School News  https://mailchi.mp/4836c75d3fe1/guild-school-news-august-4687089?e=a1f2301fd0
 

Ask not what your Guild School can do for you, ask what you can do for your Guild School.
 

Referring to the previous descriptions for the online week, here's what you can do.


Before the school week:
  • TO DO: TAKE A PHOTO FOR THE OPENING  EXHIBIT OF AN ITEM(s) AND EMAIL TO ME. DO THIS BY JUNE 1 SO THE SLIDESHOW WILL BE READY FOR POSTING ON SATURDAY NIGHT. 
  • TO DO: TAKE A PHOTO OF A PROJECT(S) YOU HAVE MADE AT GUILD SCHOOL (work in progress accepted) AND EMAIL IT. DO THIS BY JUNE 1 SO THE SLIDESHOW WILL BE READY FOR POSTING ON FRIDAY NIGHT. 
On or before the designated day:
  • TO DO: HAVE A ZOOM CHAT ON SATURDAY, ARRIVAL DAY OR BEFORE AND EMAIL ME A SCREEN SHOT RIGHT AFTER YOU END YOUR MEETING. YOU COULD DO THIS ON WEDNESDAY, R & R NIGHT, TOO (i.e., petitpointers).
  • TO DO: HAVE A ZOOM CHAT ON LOBSTER NIGHT OR BEFORE AND EMAIL ME A SCREEN SHOT RIGHT AFTER YOUR MEETING.
  • TO DO: TAKE A PHOTO OF INDIVIDUAL LOBSTER DINNERS, LOBSTER SWAG OR ACCESSORIES. EMAIL IT TO ME ON OR BEFORE TUESDAY. 
  • TO DO: GO SHOPPING AT MINIS, MUNCHIES AND MORE ON THURSDAY. INSTRUCTORS WILL HAVE POSTINGS ONLINE FOR US.
ZOOM!
I've put together an instruction sheet to help you with Zoom. Honestly, when you go to the website www.zoom.us it's very intuitive and the steps are clear. That's all I used my first time. Someone in your group does need to volunteer to be the HOST to get the thing going. That's really simple also. Here's the link for the instructions. https://www.igma.org/PDF/zoominstructions.pdf

To take a screen shot Shift,Command,3. Be sure to warn people before you take the shot.

 

REMINDER


This email blast, Guild School News, is sent 4-5 times throughout the year. Often it will include important, critical, updated information about school. Sometimes it will include just fun and interesting bits of information. Along with the IGMA website and FaceBook, this is one of the best way to communicate and be informed.  These email blasts are all archived on the website for future reference. https://www.igma.org/guild_school/newsletters.html

THIS IS WHERE YOU WILL FIND THE VIRTUAL GUILD SCHOOL 2020 WEEK, June 12-20, 2020.
