Penultimate week of classes so very busy in the a.m.   Quiet later, but felt I needed to touch base w/ online stuff so no work on STUFF except to think I might want to touch Geogebra first to make a star to use as an image to bring to GIMP with snipper. I’m told GIMP […]

I have ordered a new c omputer — should arrive next week.   I hope hope hope hope hope it doesn’t stall out all the time like this one does because I’m past the part of the process where it’s okay to find something and go to copy and paste the link and pick up five […]

It’s from onlinelearningconsortium.org   and they’re having a conference in Nashville, TN — but for some bucks people can attend virtually and … yes, it’s worth it.  I’m doing it like webinars — basically trying to see what I can glean when they’re live and hten going through stuff later because yes, anything livestreamed can be […]

Whereas I’m indoctrinated that anything you talk about should include a literature review, I dipped into “developmental math” yesterday.   Instant gratification: Reference List Weisburst E, Daugherty L, Miller T, Martorell P, Cossairt J. Innovative Pathways Through Developmental Education and Postsecondary Success: An Examination of Developmental Math Interventions Across Texas. Journal Of Higher Education [serial online]. March 2017;88(2):183-209. […]
