1/ Seven lessons from seven months of #teaching #remotely in the post Covid-19 world.

Shorter sessions.

Rather than running a 90 minute #class break it down into 4 x 15 minute session.

Each session has a central point, a framework, an example and an application exercise.
2/ An exercise needs to be time bound and interactive. Group work would be great if you could pull it off.

For instance, in financial modeling, I share half completed worksheets that need to be completed in the next 15 minutes.

In pitching, I ask them to critique a pitch.
3/ As #teachers our objective is to #teach. Can't teach without getting your students to do hands on work.

Things work differently in remote setting. You can explain all you want but till your students do the thing you are teaching with their hands, your job is not done.

I am looking for a program &/or resources that help teach #Somali to our children.

Like lots of 2nd gen ppl the #language our parents spoke is now firmly my 2nd language. I'm interested in ideas that promote #multilingualism, feel free to share & tag others. #online #clubs Image
@Poetic_Nomad @SomaliKids @thesailorsgirl @MohammedAArtan @numbiarts @AliAbdi_ @SamOfSomalia @HannaAli @Rooble2009 @Gulaid1 @robjama I sometimes feel that passing on a #language is harder for us 2nd & 3rd gen ppl. Although we were born & raised outside 'wadankii', the dynamics are different for our youth now. Interested to know what the educators think?

#Somali #Identity @MualimMohamed @ashahodan #teach
Thank Q #SomaliTwitter, I learned a lot about this today through conversations both on & offline. There is a lot of talent in our community, enough to design solutions to this & other challenges. My parents came to UK in the 60's, I grew up in the 80/90's. @WaaberiPhone 1/2

edu.oggm.org is an #interactive platform to #learn and #teach about #glaciers. We started OGGM-Edu as the "educational branch" of OGGM, but nowadays we see the project as largely independent and useful on its own. Why do we hope that it can be useful to you? 1/n
OGGM-Edu offers "hands-on" and practical activities, but only very little textbook content: we see the platform as an interactive complement to existing (and awesome) resources such as antarcticglaciers.org (@AntarcticGlacie) 2/n Image
Therefore, OGGM-Edu does not attempt to be a "one stop shop" for all things related to glaciers: our target groups are #instructors and independent learners. For example, OGGM-Edu was used by @LizzUltee to teach a week-long workshop in Peru with @CdeCPeru. 3/n Image

#Story of my journey from #Housewife to #SareeDraper
I started my career as a fashion stylist for ad-shoots. After I got married wore saree on regular basis as I love wearing saree and I respect the attire brought down by my grandmothers and mothers.

#SheInspiresUs
I took #career break because of random #shoot timings, got busy with my family and kids. I was a housewife and used to get many compliments for the way I wore #sarees .
(3/12)
I used to help people #drape saree and so they started recommending me to others, this is how I realized To change this passion into profession. Saree is classic Indian attire and has perennial and eminent history and I want to popularize the art of perfect saree draping.

One of my 5th-grade students said something yesterday like, "it's not like segregation in the past," then our class paraprofessional replied, "it's little known that NYC has the most segregated public schools system in the US." Then I showed them a racial dot map of NYC. 1/
2/ Here's that racial dot map of NYC. Each dot reps 120 of one race, so it's a visual of racial segregation. On this map, white is green, Black is blue, Latinx is orange, and Asian is red. Source from a 2015 @nytimes article: nytimes.com/interactive/20…

See how segregated NYC is?!
3/ I asked my students if they knew white or black kids- most said no. I zoomed into Sunset Park on that map and showed the majority of ppl living there were orange and red dots, Latinx and Asian, and that their neighborhood, like almost all of NYC, is ridiculously segregated.

Hi everyone thank you for all your support and empathy in the past few days.
To minimize further injuries, the original voicemail with the intended subject's name has been removed, but I am reposting here with name obscured: soundcloud.com/user-251012259… (thanks for tech help!)
I am also reposting my entire Twitter message regarding this incident, with other important ideas I forgot to include:
four days ago my work phone got a rambling but confrontational 3.5 min voicemail from someone questioning my legitimacy to teach based on my presumed #citizenship and #ethnic identity. You can hear the actual message here: soundcloud.com/user-251012259…
