Nice quiet morning. Had a decent night’s sleep - went to bed early - but Charlotte woke up and kept us up for a little while. Anyway, good to take a day off and recover a bit. I’ll have to head to bed early tonight so that I can get up and workout before swimming.
Ate pizza and had some diet beer yesterday. I think that’s why I’m feeling slightly crumby today. I’ll need to watch my calories today. Drinking will be limited too so that I can get up early and workout. I’ll be able to booze it up Saturday night. I’m going to experiment with taking it easy tonight.
One thing I learned: Slader is a website that gives answers to homework/textbook questions. This shows that the internet has rendered the traditional way of learning useless. Instead of assigning homework in the form of practice, why not try and have kids answer interesting problems instead?
One piece of motivation: The role of the teacher is to inspire, to intervene, and to raise up the motivated but stuck student. Instead of punishing great teachers with precise instructions on how to spend their day, we give them the freedom to actually teach. - Seth Godin, Stop Stealing Dreams
Three ideas: Going to apply to speak at Quest. Why not? I’m going in with the tech minded entrepreneurial approach. I’ll need to figure out the exact pitch, but something along the lines of deeper learning with an entrepreneurial mindset.
