  • One of my favorite patterns of all time!

    One of my favorite patterns of all time!

    So. I make myself a new hat whenever I lose my latest one. Yep. I lose knitted hats… made out of amazing yarn. Oh well. The Three Tams pattern as shown on knitty.com https://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter07/PATTtam.html is my GO TO pattern. I’ve made these for friends… family. To give away. I love this pattern. It’s MOSTLY easy……

  • Day 6: VLOOKUP & TRUE – oooh

    Coming back to The Google Sheets course… Just loved seeing the “precedence” drag and drop in the conditional formatting rules. While I don’t imagine when I’ll use it, I have often used VLookup in the past. Having the resulting table also include visual queues? A recipe for greatness!

  • Updating my resume

    Nothing to see here. That sure is a shame. 10/28 update: I don’t know when I stopped having my resume on my website. I know it’s in LinkedIn… but it is time to have it back here. For my coworkers, managers, and team: I don’t want to leave UAF eLearning. I do want to do…

  • Brand new day

    Yesterday I received my VoiceThread Certified Educator badge through VoiceTread (Credly badge displayed). Next up is Google for Education Certified Trainer. May it take less than a year. I’m supposed to get it done by April 2018. Coolio. Let’s begin.

  • Breakfast anyone?

    I should be grading. I was grading. Why am I awake at 3:14a? Oh well. Just discovered CANVA… Decided to work on non-work. Duh. I’m VP on Enep’ut’s board. Tuesday, Michael (P) and I are having an informal parent meet and greet. But we mean we meet, you eat! MAR 07: appreciate parents by Janene McMahan

  • Instant Pot

    So, I got a new kitchen toy in mid December. I’ve not used it anywhere near as much as I would like. This is a post to admit that, and to say … ONE TIME per month—at a minimum—I intend to try something new with it. What’s up for January? … Not quite sure –…

  • Getting serious about Twitter?

    Egads! I’m a professional. I’ve been online since (okay, I won’t say)… but in the five years I’ve had a Twitter account–the one I use, not the one I want–I’ve not tweeted *enough.* Enter IF THIS THEN THAT to the rescue. I most certainly have communicated a LOT and shared cool tools and how-tos via different…

  • 2015 in review

    The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog. It is pretty clear to me that I need to blog more! Essentially, I used this site in 2013-2014 to demonstrate what you (a UAF student) could do with a free blog on the WordPress.com site. Please note that the free accounts…

  • Building Community in an Online Classroom

    Working with Dr. Nicole Cundiff at noon today to gather great ideas (as well as stories of what hasn’t worked) for building your online classroom community. Want to participate? Feel free to drop your ideas on the Padlet ‘whiteboard’ space. Created with Padlet

  • Last June I thought I’d just make all of Aedan’s baby food… That worked really well for a few months. Then somewhere around Thanksgiving or a wee bit later it became more important for him to have more solid food. Still, I’m making quite a bit of his food, just not all.

  • Make your own (A)

    Some of your posts just should not have (visually and creatively speaking) a massive title. See this other post without a title. Last June I thought I’d just make all of Aedan’s baby food… That worked really well for a few months. Then somewhere around Thanksgiving or a wee bit later it became more important…
