My Best Teaching Is One-on-One


Of course, I team teach and do special lessons, etc.


But my best work in the classroom is after the lesson is over --
going one-on-one,
helping individual students with their assignments.


It's kind of like with computer programs, walking the client through hands-on.
The job isn't really done until the customer is using the program.

Exposing myself on youtube

Just put my first video up on youtube. It's a song I put together last year using Garage Band and Sound It! and the internal mike on my iBook G4 (that has since succumbed to the zombie graphics chip symptoms), together with a bunch of shots I took of my efforts to get Fedora running on my even older clamshell iBook.

The interesting part where I got Mac OS 9 to revive itself didn't fit into the song.

Unfortunately, the 30G hard drive that I pulled from the white iBook G4 and installed on the tangerine clamshell died fairly quickly after the transplant. The G4 has since died, so I may pull the 160G drive I put in it and put that back in the tangerine so my son can use Fedora on it again. (He uses an old Mac OS X for now, with the tiny 5.6G drive the tangerine came with. That tangerine seems to be indestructible.)

Wish I could afford the tools to fix the G4.
