If You Don’t Use It, You Lose It – Almost!

Well, this will be short.  Oops! It wasn’t. 😦   I should know better. 🙂

I have been on my laptop since around 11:00 this morning. I logged into my Google Plus in order to participate in a Google Hangout with Wes Fryer and Oklahoma STEM teachers who will discuss lessons they have been doing in their classrooms recently. One of the issues was how to do good, hands-on projects, with a lack of supplies. It was an interesting session with some good descriptions of lessons that got the kids excited and engaged. Here is the link to the new site Wes set up specifically to highlight STEM.

Anyway, after participating in the hangout, I went off onto other tangents. At one point I was checking my settings in Twitter and realized that the website listed for me was my old Posterous website which I had exported to WordPress some time ago. I had written down the information with my new title, etc., on a scrap of paper – instead of my notebook – and I couldn’t find it anywhere. I finally had to scroll back through my tweets to find reference to my site, and thankfully, I got back to it and remembered how to log in. Needless to say, I have transcribed the info to my notebook and will soon put it in my Evernote app. I am relieved and hope to post more regularly from now on. Of course, I said that last October, and now it is March of 2014.  I shall try!

More later – on various aspects of my interests now that I am “retired.” Of course, instructional technology is still my passion. That is why I am attempting to keep up with my PLN, so I won’t “lose it.” (or at least, not all of it)
