This week has started out with my car in the shop, and my laptop, too! A couple of weeks ago a teen driver made a miscalculation in my car and some significant damage resulted. It needs about two weeks of TLC to repair, but the practical driving lessons and spiritual applications abound. You just can’t create neat and tidy lesson plans for some things.
My laptop has malware again, I clicked a couple of articles on Facebook and I think that is the source of my computer problems. When the tech called today I asked him if the shop holds classes for people to learn how to debug their computers at home. He referred me to the local community college, so I think I’ll look into that for next semester. I don’t want to take away anyone’s livilihood, but with 5 students and as many computers, I think it would be beneficial for someone to know how to do some basic computer repairs! Thankfully, I have my tablet, so I am able to continue my coursework and write this blog post!
Speaking of coursework. Have you heard of Coursera? Coursera offers courses from top Universities for free or a low fee. I am enjoying the two classes that I am taking currently, Learning How to Learn, and Beginning Public Speaking. If you are interested in “going back to school” check out Coursera!
That’s how my week is starting out. Have you thought about learning how to do basic cleaning or repairing of your personal computers? How about going back to school and checking out the online options?
