Today I Learned

Grades for the quarter submitted! My worst teaching year ever has now ended, and I get the summer to forget about it, and look forward to better teaching in the autumn. Hooray!

Psst, #cssday folks! I've got a free course that teaches you all there is to know about scroll-driven animations.

In 10 episodes you'll become familiar with the core concepts and how some demos were built.

Good news everyone!

"ChatGPT Edu, powered by GPT-4o, is designed for universities to responsibly integrate AI into academic and campus operations. This advanced AI tool supports text and vision reasoning, data analysis, and offers enterprise-level security."

Based on everything we know about AI, I am sure nothing could possibly go wrong with this new tool to integrate it into our #teaching and campus operations more broadly.

Did an AI write that article?

This video warms my heart. Cussing is good for the soul, and it’s empowering.

To folks who get angry about this, my advance retort is that I’d rather have young girls learning to cuss than learning to be door mats.

Two young girls in the grass, facing each other. One is teaching the other sign language for what they’re saying.

@markwyner Well I know of at least 2 sign languages & to my shame I speak neither

There's BSL for British sign language & ASL for American, there are many others

AFAIK ASL & BSL are sufficiently different that speakers of one would have difficulty understanding a speaker of the other, if they can understand each other at all

See for more info

I'm guessing the girls are using ASL as I think FAFO is an American idiom

@staringatclouds that’s super helpful. I knew there were variances, but didn’t know some are different enough to be indecipherable. Now I’m really curious and need to research this more. Thanks for sharing your knowledge. 🙌🏻

@msquebanh Camponotus pennsylvanicus with 90% certainty— small chance it could be Camponotus chromaides— a very similar but more rare sp.

Does anyone remember Vietnamese American, Tila Tequila, promoting fascism & joining far right asshats, doing Nazi salute with Richard Spencer & being an avid Trump supporter?

msquebanh, avatar

I bring that up only because many #fascists / #WhiteSupremacists really love to recruit #POC & exploit them to try to show public - we ain't #racist because we have #BIPOC people who support us.

Guess what folks? POC with massive #InternalizedRacism & #InternalizedMisogyny are easily recruited/exploited by #bigots for evil purposes. It's not new. It's been happening for a long time. It goes back to #colonialism & #imperialism divide/conquer tactics of Indigenous peoples genocides, globally.

My son's grade 6 teacher is leaning full tilt into the "embarrass you in front of the class for benign requests/mistakes" method of authoritarian #teaching.

I'm caught between wanting to call her out on it, vs, not wanting to make things worse for him since she seems like the retaliatory type. And there's only 1 month left in the school year.

@heiglandreas There will be a next year but a different teacher thank goodness!

@syntaxseed Our son went through teacher issues. In French school, his teacher(s) suspended him in grade 5 for being unruly. His friends knew they could wind him up, and he’d get in trouble as he was the most rambunctious. We switched schools for 6-7 and he thrived. Teachers embraced his character and made it work for all his classes. He went from sad to being the happiest kid in the world! Hope you both find a way to get through these last few days and have a teacher that “gets him” next year

Honestly, just be kind to your students and you're vastly more inclusive than 75% of other educators in higher ed.

#HitchinHackspace open evening is on Monday evening.
We will be open from 19:30 until 22:00 to give folks who may be interested in what we do, and what facilities we can provide, a chance to come and have a look round and meet some of our members.
All are welcome. If you have ever wondered what we did to convert a derelict toilet into a hackspace, or what a "hackspace" is for that matter, come and have a look around.
If you like to create, make or craft things why not pay us a visit?
We have tools and equipment that cover a wide range of hobbies, crafts and technologies: woodwork, metalwork, electronics, laser cutting, vinyl cutting, sewing, 3D printing.....
Free tea, coffee and a biscuit or two.
