Just a quick change. I changed the eye to a heart. You know, because of things I like to read. 
Don’t worry. The eye will make a comeback though

If you haven’t noticed already, Twitter is live streaming the scores and the feeds of each World Cup game. Pretty cool if you are like me: at work on a Saturday but still want to monitor the games.

You may see a new icon on the front page of my blog here. The little eyeball. That is a link to my NewsBlur Blog. NewsBlur is a fantastic feedreader that allows its users to save articles he/she has read and post them to their own little news blog (and able to comment and all sorts of stuff). For a while I was posting weekly reads but that got a little too much for me to handle, so, this is a little easier if you are looking for some curated articles about education, edtech or anything else really.

It’s time to really start filling out this Bound For Anything journal. I have been doodling in it and taking just random notes (which is a good thing if you’re like me and enjoy just writing down your random thoughts) but now I get to really dive in to it now that I am starting to learn Front-End Web Development through Thinkful.
However, let me tell you: the thought of coding it is incredibly overwhelming. Then again isn’t the thought of learning something new and foreign always overwhelming? *flashbacks to freshmen year in both High School and College*. The same thoughts:

What am I doing?
I am in way over my head.
Why did I ever think this was a good idea?
There is no way I am going to pass this.

The crazy thing was that in my High School years my teachers were always there to help. Guide me. Make sure I didn’t drown myself in anxiety over a foreign topic and the thought that I wasn’t going to pass, thus fulfilling some kind of prophecy I set for myself. Most importantly they tried to instill in me the capability of teaching me how to deal with that type of anxiety by myself (spoiler alert: they did. kinda).
So I ask all of you K-12 (maybe even some HigherEd profs out there):
What do you do to help your students cope with material they think is way over their head?
