  1. Great podcast. I have similar virtual work experiences. Re Skype – which I use a lot and use it as my main phone (also purchased a Skype number which looks like a Sydney number that people can call in Aus and get me in NZ) – I find Skype is a bit flakey and very internet dependent. I’ve started using Zoom which seems to be way more stable and way less dependent of a strong and steady signal. It’s more of a webinar type tool (in the way you initially hook up) but I think it will end up replacing Skype for me as a video conference type app. Might want to check that out. (I’m not connected to Zoom btw!!)

      Tēnā rawa atu koe (thanks very much) Richard and also for the advice on Zoom. I have used it once and was impressed. We had a virtual coffee meeting this morning and skype was less than ideal – we talked over each other at times due to this. Kia pai to rā – Have a good day.

    Thanks Rohcelle. As a HOD equivalent in an online school this is the way we work with my staff in Auckland and Wellington. I am in Hamilton. Don’t forget the virtual chocolate! I also send students virtual chocolate fish.

      E pai ana (you’re welcome). Great to hear from someone else who works this way especially as it feels so normal to me but sometimes when I discuss how I work with others they seem amazed. I have been remiss on sending chocolate fish! Good tip.
