So many things have happened in the last two months. How do you continue to keep up with everything and build good habits, like writing on your blog on a regular basis. I struggle with this and want to write more.
One of the HABITS I have tried to make part of my daily life is using a todo list and the top 3 priority. I have tested so many different apps, and have decided that the app that will do almost everything I want is Wunderlist. It allows me to easily have the list on my computer, and on each of my devices, (iPad and iPhone).
Another HABIT I am struggling with is finding time for working out and eating healthy. How long does it take to build a habit. I can't seem to make these changes for more than a couple days. I tried to also drink less DIET Coke, my methods did not work with that one either. Any suggestions on how to make something a HABIT, my diet coke addiction may be useful. Unless you have stock in Coke products.
Kevin Honeycutt at Podstock last year, challenges us not to be a fader when it comes to being a connected educator. I feel I have NOT been a fader. I have been very active on Plurk, Twitter, and SimpleK12. Thanks for the challenge Kevin. Maybe that is what I need for my habits is competition. Connect with me on twitter at @brendahauff
I created Goals, not really resolution because of a facebook group the TechFormers Unite group on facebook. If you have not joined this group it is an amazing group of growing educators. Last time I checked there was over 500 people and this group is not even 3 months old. They are posting challenges to help you connect with technology and use it in your classroom. Gamification is important for adults too, not just kiddos.
One of my goals was to start a podcast this year. I have wanted to do this for years. Like maybe 10 and this is the year it will happen. Last week I spent Monday recording my first Podcast and other logistical stuff to make this happen. The podcast is called McTech2go, not the typical name, listen to find out why this name makes sense for me. In the next month you will see me and McTech2Go on Remarkable Chatter as an Affiliate of ESSDACK.
