So! They archived the webinar on instructional design and practice problems. I wanted to be there b/c somebody had suggested that now H5P *can* be used well with math. I still don’t know; that wasn’t discussed. I’ll look in the doc to see if there are examples therein (so I’m grateful that I didn’t even […]

…. yesterday included a true exercise in futilities … it would have been nice to have a recording of the patience the student had dealing with having to do a printed out worksheet and make it a PDF. Basically, his devices weren’t downloading it well; I think the INternet just wasn’t that good. Surprise dead […]

… not in a good way. At The New Community School, I found out what it was like to work where there were the resources to serve your students *well* … and not burn out. I’d been in public school, where we analogized that we were all under this huge wet mattress and trying to […]

He was flabbergasted. I couldn’t bring myself to do that to our public safety person whom told me in […]

If today’s any indicator, I’ll be *plenty* busy. Somebody asked when I let them know they’re getting rid of our department: what will the students do? I don’t know.

A pretty cool multiplication app on Geogebra: https://www.geogebra.org/m/mhh22ujb and I commended its “formative” nature, noting […]

  It’s prep week and today was Faculty Q & A.   State COVID numbers continue to creep up — should I be glad they’re not acting all that exponential?   Our county had another nice low day (something like 13 or 16 cases, 0.4 positivity rate) but since yesterday students *really* started back in throngs… people […]

  So!   It’s Thursday; starting this week I don’t have Friday off. Since I am trying to crank out a usable course … I appreciate tomorrow being a work day. Boring weather, yay!   County COVID numbers good — sub-1% positivity.  State? barely under 4. I’ve got the first oh, 4 of about 40 lessons so […]

  Not going to tag this with MTBOSBLaugust b/c … it’s not really mathy. Yesterday a bit of derecho slammed through — didn’t last long, but the winds took down a zillion trees and … after barely getting started on Making A Test Prep Course … (tomorrow I’ll blog about the mathy part of that)… […]
