Four school divisions gathered to experience the inauguration together.
Emotions in the rooms varied from solemn to exuberant. I felt a strong sense of collective experience. There was something truly memorable about witnessing this moment in history together with the younger and older people in this school.
Digital broadcast TV worked flawlessly in three locations. In the fourth, the signal was a bit jumpy, perhaps due to poor reception. Some classrooms and small groups of staff collected to watch streaming web video. The CNN feed had about a 45 second delay, perhaps because they were streaming to the huge audience they had cultivated for this event.
