"Even as we are seeing more schools and educators transform the way they teach and learn with technology, many more are not. Technology is often viewed either as a frill or a tool not worth its weight in gold. Opinions vary on the merits of educational technology, but common themes seem to have emerged. Some of the reasons for not embracing technology have to do with several misconceptions revolving around fear."
"You are violating copyright if you have not gotten express PERMISSION from the copyright holder OR are using pics that are public domain, creative commons, etc. I didn't know better and I had to learn the hard way. So I want to let you all know now so that you don't have to be a cautionary tale as well."
"In a recent post, Edudemic introduced us to a very intricate, color-coded visualization by Envisioning Tech on what to expect in education technology in the next 30 years or so. And these concepts are not broad generalizations— Envisioning Tech takes topics like digitized classrooms and tangible computing and segments them into practical ideas to produce a well-organized, cohesive diagram"
"Classroom management is a whole process. Being a teacher, you have to keep an eye on a number of factors to make your class organized, disciplined and managed. You have to deal with noisy students, disruptive students and late students."
there are too many negatives to chronic lateness for most people to do it deliberately
the latemonger is actually in need of help and is not receiving it. Psychologist Dr. Linda Sapadin, author of 'Master Your Fears', agrees. The consequences of being chronically late run deeper than many people realize.
"Why can some people never seem to be on time? You probably know such people, perhaps only too well. Indeed, I shouldn't rule out the possibility that if you're reading this that you are one of those people. As I indicated, everybody is late now and then, but I'm talking about those people who habitually show up after a meeting has started, or after the hour that was designated for the meeting to begin."
Try turning the question around: How do other people usually get where they need to go on time? What steps do they take to avoid being late? First, they check the clock every so often, particularly when they know there's a deadline approaching. They estimate how much time they'll need to get wherever they're going and thus what time they'll need to leave where they are. They pause to figure out how long it will take to finish what they're currently doing and get ready for whatever is coming next. And then they adjust their behavior accordingly
I suspect that those who chronically show up late don't do these things. Perhaps they have a tendency to lose themselves in whatever they're currently doing and don't discover what time it is until it's too late.
"why some people never seem to be on time. Surely you know such people, perhaps quite well. Indeed, if you can overcome a rising bubble of defensiveness, you may admit that you are one of those people. Everyone is late now and then, of course, but I'm talking about folks who habitually show up after an event has started.."
Once you recognize this as a bad habit, only then will you be on the road to recovery.
Monitor your progress at the end of each day in writing and make written notes of any adjustments you need to improve. Just thinking about it doesn't cut it, because your thoughts are too easily forgotten.
"On the surface, people who are constantly late don't seem to care about themselves or others, no matter how many times they are scolded and joked about. It just goes in one ear and out the other. So what can be done?"
