Finding Time

Since March 23rd I have, like just about everyone else not classed as a key worker, been working remotely. That means at home. Let’s be honest about what home working actually means …

In this time I’ve had my longest dry spell, in term of blogging activity – my last post was on April 29th.

It’s not that I haven’t had the ideas or inclination to write, it’s purely down to tiredness. After +9hrs a day on video calls, chat, emails, meetings, reports, line management, etc. the last thing I feel like doing is sitting down (at the same desk, no less) and doing some more. I need to take care of myself as well as my family.

So, to you dear reader, I endeavour to get back to blogging and writing and sharing and developing ideas and concepts to add to the voices around continuing to develop online and distance learning.

Here are a few things I’ve read recently that may help. They did for me.

  • ‘The best way to work with your learning technologist’ (Danial Scott)
  • ’24 times partners learned new things about their significant other while seeing them work from home’ (Jonas Grinevičius)
  • ‘Small acts of kindness at work benefit the giver, the receiver and the whole organisation’ (Alex Fradera)
  • ‘Don’t turn your home into school … the Lego professor of play on lockdown learning’ (Donna Furguson)
