I’m not a techie. I like technology, I do. But I also fear it. Well, maybe I don’t fear it, I fear facing my own lack of understanding about how things work.
Well, distance learning has brought me face to face with my fear. I’ve had no choice this week, but to learn how to navigate google meets, strengthen my google calendar skills, manage multiple devices to communicate with families all in the name of connecting with children.
While I might be feeling a little bit proud of myself for learning and using my new learning, I’ve also learned I can’t stand sitting and staring at a computer screen all day (although staring at my colleagues does bring me joy). I now understand why my husband longs to do the evening walk with the dog, why he sometimes can’t sit down for dinner, and why we have a standing desk in our office.
As we slide into the weekend – it is Friday Eve – I will begin to look back on what I have learned and keep my eyes open to what I can discover next week…as my tech skills surely will continue to develop.
