The importance of getting out

My friend Phillip worries that I do not get out enough, so I convinced him to let me visit and watch him facilitate professional development for his Learnscope project (titled iTubes YouTubes) at AMES at West Coast TAFE (they offer English for Migrant courses). He was a bit concerned as to whether I would actually gain from being at his session, I wasn’t because my aim was to pick up tips for improving how I facilitate professional development. I believe……

Getting Your Gmail Account Under Control And Working For You!

I’ve never been able to control my email accounts! Regardless of my actions emails flow in leading to major email infestation. James’s explanation of how he uses his email accounts as his “to-do-list”; archiving emails that have been actioned immediately and keeping those that need follow up labeled in his Inbox has helped me to take gmail from 3000+, home email from 1000+ and my work email account to ZERO!

Importance of Staying Home

Lets see – at home. Can clean house? Wash dishes? Wash clothes? Do gardening? Or I join an Elluminate session and watch Philip facilitate an interactive online professional development (he shows the participants in the virtual classroom what to do then they have to do it on their computers e.g. set up their own iGoogle). Lets see – housework and gardening sound boring (oh well what’s another day of mess?). I learnt a lot from Philip when I joined his……

Janne’s Story

Janne’s story is about my mother Millicent Halma (nee Hurst) – preferred name Janne who was born in 1938 and died on January 24, 2019.  It is written from stories she told me before she died combined with information in documents she wrote at various times during her life.  I didn’t always appreciate her hoarding – but I feel blessed that it lead her to keeping so many documents and items that most people discard.  Most were found when cleaning……
