…. welp, I *would* be at the faculty summer institute but I didn’t get a proposal in and … honestly didn’t see any presentations that spoke to me. After all, …. I’m not faculty 😛 When I go out on the bike I remember things to do. At my desk? It’s not there. Well, except […]

I’ve already had a student 🙂 This one is repeating a class and … has learned *so much.* As in, a living, breathing reason why our full service support is needed and beneficial. You really wouldn’t recognize this one as the same person. first time through, learning the whole array of navigation — here’s a […]

Okay, I *am* an optimist. I’m easily infatuated with potential. I had about a 15 minute zoom call with “UDLPartners.” They’ve got a “Name it, Frame it, Tame it” video and the plan is to have “micro PD” videos — under 3 minutes. (Yes, we already speak the same language.) So now it’s time to […]

One of my math tweeople shared this historical gem about “acedia” — a certain flavor of anxious listlessness. From it: Evagrius of Pontus included acedia among the eight trains of thought that needed to be overcome by devout Christians. Among these, acedia was considered the most insidious.

“Phil on Ed Tech” interviewed Sal Khan at CanvasCon. I registered for it but couldn’t get into anything interesting so I inferred it was Big Corporate Entities talking at Big Institutions and bugged out. Wish I could remember the really cool online conference that had lounges and chat rooms and everything… Did Sal Khan think […]

It’s been really busy in the ‘academic development lab’ — yes, so busy that students show up, turn around and leave because it’s too crowded and they know they won’t get the help they need. No, I am not going to switch over to appointments (though I should consider maybe for N hours/week — but […]

  Welp, I had said I’d allow 2 hours for figuring out how to open up the next fact when you’re done the first.   It took longer, but I did it… and then realized that for purposes of seeing what it’s about, locking a user into that path would be pretty awful.   I think the […]

I got a good answer to a simple question on the freecodecamp.org forum yesterday, and I’m going to have enough to share by the end of today (because I really do now :-)). (the codepen is here) I wonder if there might be groups of teachers using it to make stuff…especially, specifically OER. Searching got […]

Mirabile dictu, I have student workers and managed to get my “first half fours” video made and up. It’s about how to figure out 4 x a number, you double it twice. I decided I’d stick to pictures on this one and on the “bigger ones and how to double anything,” show how x 2 […]

when I get out on the bike, the 37 different Really Important Things To Get Done slowly bubble to the top.   Doesn’t always follow me inside… The Two Big Things are the Times Tables Class and the Cool Geogebra Spaced Retrieval Activity.   Another Big THing that is lurking is… doing the Thing Like THe Lumen […]
