I get asked often by students, “Mr. Brown, what do you do here when we aren’t here?” They are referring to winter break, summer break, spring break, etc. It certainly is quieter here but one thing I do is go through my “Stuff to Learn” list.
Over a few months, I compose a list of all of things I want to learn about, but during the school days don’t have the necessary time spend. I worked through such a list last week and one thing I watched was this video. Her comments around 13 and 14 minutes in about constant connection, the quote “I share therefore I am” and moving from connection to isolation are especially interesting. Of course, I think about this with your children and my own at home and the environment they are growing up in.
