SLICE #27- Lessons from Distance Learning
The end of a long week of remote learning.
Yesterday, between classes and meetings, I was online for 13 hours straight.
Today, I am in my second of six classes, and I am tired.
The presenter is great, but I am having trouble concentrating.
My eyes are drawn to the participant thumbnails on the side of the Google meeting.
Most people, myself included, turn off their cameras, so all that you see are their names, and some kind of initial or photograph.
My eyes are drawn to movement from one of the people who have not turned off their camera.
It is a woman, about forty, standing in her bathroom.
She is wearing dark colored leggings
and nothing else…
along with I don't know how many of the other 250 session participants,
as she grabs a lacy white bra off the counter,
and fastens it,
leans forward several times to adjust her girls,
and pulls a long-sleeved t-shirt over her bra.
The show goes on for almost two minutes,
and I keep waiting for the tech guy to darken her screen
but that doesn't happen.
All day I have been thinking about that poor woman
who by now is probably mortified
by her digital indiscretion.
Her friends and colleagues
are probably all talking about her,
Her principal has probably heard.
I am sure she is considering moving to another state
or perhaps changing professions.
I shudder thinking about all of the mistakes
I have probably made this week.
I have decided that rule #1
of remote learning should be
"Always put your bra on before the session starts,
because you never know who might be watching."

Oh. My. God. I can't even believe it! That's a living nightmare! I have been so paranoid with the cameras even when the meetings are off. Thanks for giving me a chuckle!
No! Thank you for the lesson! I'm sorry that she had to make that mistake for us to learn the lesson, though!
The poor woman! So many stories coming from these times. I am not sorry to miss the online interaction. I know major changes in education are happening daily.
Thank you for your insights!
