Bailey, can you explain how to change the background of your zoom?
Put a smiley face sticky note next to your webcam as a reminder!
Webex is another option
Scheduling EVERYTHING in my google calendar
you can add collaborators to Trello (maybe your supervisor) - can help keep you accountable!
tip to stay on task: write your to-do list on paper. it's tangible and will be right in front of you, and it will reduce screen time
Overwhelmed with emails!! I am not a huge technology person, so communicating via email, GM, and texts is overwhelming!
give yourself grace. we're in the middle of a global health crisis!!! be sure to keep your limit
Our parents are going through the same things! They get bored too and can learn a few new things!
tips to prevent sensory overload for ourselves? our students? even our supervisors?
sign-language is a good new skill to learn :)
I’ve been asking my parents to teach me new recipes to cook!
I have added time in my day to actually meditate or have a mindful moment to myself (away from screens and distractions) to prevent or reset from sensory overload (it may seem like one more thing to add to your list of to dos but it can be helpful)
join a book club!
I joined a movie club!
Same! joined a movie club
Bailey, send links
Still doodle and do some grounding techniques. Screens don’t overstimulate me per say
Amazon has really cute and cheap blue light glasses!
My little siblings have been doing their schooling from home so its hard to get stuff to load all at the same time on the wifi so we have been spacing stuff out for that reason.
Does anyone have much younger siblings at home? How is that going
Same! My parents back in Texas wanted me to stay in Nebraska, but we FaceTime everyday to stay in contact and have a “new normal”
i have a high school aged brother and its difficult when we both have to be quiet during each others zoom classes
I stayed at my apartment at school so I could stay focused easier, but I live across from a fire department so I always have the fire trucks going off during my meetings which is a challenge!
its very difficult
She means you Carol
I have a three year old brother! Also 20 years difference. He is super understanding that about when I go into my room, it is time for me to do work or school. And I always tell him I'll be back at lunch
My siblings are 10 and 14 and they want me to answer a lot of school questions for them so its hard to focus on my own school work and trying to figure out 4th grade math lol
my bad i don’t know how to unmute
appreciate that Dom!! means a lot
thank you, student leaders! firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to holler :)
