My college is closed due to dangerous ice and I am wondering what my learners are up to? I am looking after my to little ones while trying to work from home. Their attention is a bit limited to allow me to work for any sustained time. However, my 4 year old did raise a good point. “You have a computer at home, why do you have to go to work?” I have to admit I was stuck for an answer there.
It left me thinking how many of my learners are carrying on their learning from home today? I cam see that there are two learners logged into the VLE, what are the others up to? Strangely(!) When I log onto XBOX live I can find another six learners.
We are going to run am experiment during the learner’s final year project where only half of the group will work in college at one time, the others will work from home; keeping contact through the VLE and social networks. The results should be interesting I’ll keep you informed.
