I just updated the #whatsapp3 stats. (@haitham’s docs for doing this were very good. I also cleaned up the spreadsheet a bit and wrote some automation tools.) Updated stats are live on our Other Metrics page.

Main takeaways:

  • We had a dramatic decrease in traffic from June to July (from 31 to 5 messages posted). Angelica and May posted once, and Ev posted three times. (Remember, this is messages posted by leaders. It doesn’t count content posted by Miles River.)
  • As @eden has already articulated in her updates, we had two folks request to be added (George and Angelica), and in both cases, we ran into challenges getting them installed. We were able to get Angelica up thanks to her assistant, and we’re still working with George’s assistant.

How might we stay engaged…

How might we stay engaged with each other in an ongoing basis?

At the WyeRiver meeting in March 2016, Wye leaders decided to sharpen their focus and come together to do long term planning together. There was strong consensus that in order to succeed, the network must try working in different shapes and move forward their work in between the two annual meetings.

This “how might we”question and the associated experiments are testing out different methods for communicating what work is happening and prompting increased engagement.

#Whatsapp3 Adding Angelica to Whatsapp was more difficult that we’d thought adding folks would be. Lesson learned that should have assistants and/or principals add the app and then message Eugene on Whatsapp, immediately. Easy lesson learned since Areli was so helpful! #whatsapp3
