Focus

The world is the world. We know its nature. It has good and bad. We experience both. We walk trough life and there it is. Focus is the difference. Where do we focus our attentention, our energies? What do we call in and what do we put out into the world? Even in adversity, even in paradise, in light and dark. Is it our choice?

Google Keep
Notes and Reminders Made Easy

Hello Sequoyah, 

I have to write it down. A note, an Email. a text message. If it is not written down I will not remember and there is a good chance that I won't remember even if it is. There are some great services available for notes and reminders. You can automate Google Calendar for event reminders, EverNote is great for note-taking in a variety of forms. I use them every day.

Google Keep (http://www.google.com/keep/) though has become my go to note taking service. Over the past couple of years it has evolved into a dynamic resource. . It syncs across devices so it is always up to date. If you have not looked into please do.

The checklist feature is easy to use and is a great way to create and keep up with a list. I am working on organization and colors, the purpose behind certain colors. So I am working on developing a method of organization to better track my activities and purpose. Green for technology, Blue for email and scheduling, Yellow for ToDo, Red for Household tasks. Maybe, at least it is a work in process.      

Thanks and don't forget to be awesome, 
Andy

Examination

Being and doing and that pattern emerges. Something is triggering emotions and reactions with conscious thought. Find it recongize it. Trace the issue of where it comes. Accept it, begin to implement change and move forward or let it go if it is not based in reality.

Patterns

Living along do ta do ta do. And then realize something is strange, off, under the surface. Patterns from the past reemerge. Wake up to see these feelings and reactions are based not on today but on long ago and manner of living long forgotten.

Padlet
Posting on a Wall

Hello Sequoyah, 

Over the weekend Mr. Galloway posted a tweet about Padlet. Padlet is a really nifty website. Padlet allows the user to create a wall. Anyone with the link can post on the wall. Not to worry posts can be moderated. Padlet would be a great way to collect feedback on tasks and assignments. Share information. Collaborate with a group. 

The learning curve on Padlet is not steep at all. Simply double click on the wall to add a box. Link files and websites and more. Check out my getting started Padlet at http://padlet.com/aboatman/shg94t4uou

Is anyone using Padlet in the classroom? Be sure to share with us your success stories, trials, and tribulations. 

Thanks and don't forget to be awesome, 
Andy

TweetDeck Guide
A Resource

Hello Sequoyah, 

On Friday we looked at the Mashable website with their great guide to using Twitter. Today we look at the Mashable site on TweetDeck. 

TweetDeck is a twitter interface that allows multiple columns to be shown on the screen. I have my stream up from both my personal and business accounts. I have a list up of teachers I follow. I have up two or three hashtags streams too. I will add hashtag streams as topics of interest pop up. The opening of the Corning Museum West Wing was a great hashtag to follow for a couple of days. 

TweetDeck is a great resource and an easier way to keep up with all the Twitter chatter. There are other resources online similar to TweetDeck, so look around a bit and you may find something you like even better.

Take a look at the Mashable article on TweetDeck:
