Loads of Learning

August 6th, 2020 at 12:51 am

I'm spending every morning this week and next in sessions for improving online learning. I've taught online occasionally for more than a decade, but there's a lot of new technology and all sorts of tips and tricks to learn.

I had to laugh at myself today as I was somewhat astounded how many students access so much of their course material through their phones rather than laptops. "Who could use their phone as a primary learning device?" I asked my DH at lunch. He just stared at me and reminded me I access Duo Lingo every day on my phone for my language lessons.

Although I'd much prefer to be in the classroom, I'm looking forward to video commenting on papers, and some of the fancier parts of our learning management systems.

Today was a NS day. We ate up lots of leftovers for lunch, and although my DH was convinced there was nothing for dinner, I made a very good veggie-filled mac and cheese using up the last bits of leftover cream cheese, some questionable Brie, and subbing evaporated milk for the heavy cream. There is something so satisfying up using things up.

DD and I took our usual 40-minute walk today and for over five minutes we were accompanied by 5 turkeys. They followed us down the street and got a little too close for my comfort. But it was very funny. Another small joy for the day!

    Is that a common sight where you live? Turkeys just out for a walk? It's pretty awesome!

    Wink--we live in suburbia--but pretty close to a nature preserve, a large county park, and Lake Michigan. The turkeys and deer are more common here than I would've thought.

    I have both a smart phone and a laptop and to be honest, I prefer the laptop for anything I have to look at for any length of time, so I get your comment. Of course I'm older and my eyes aren't as strong as they used to be either.

    Funny on your turkey trot!
