Every year when the Tour de France comes around, I want to write a series of posts on marginal gains. We so often focus on the big things, we set big goals and get despondent when we don’t meet them. But real change often happens in small ways, slipping under the radar. In this series, I want to celebrate these little victories. Each by itself might not be revolutionary or innovative, but when you put them together, you realise that without fanfare we have gained lots of ground.
Recently a severe cold kept me in bed for a day. I just hate the idea that while I am sick, my learners are loosing a whole day of learning. But with the help of Google Classroom, Desmos and a few other tricks, my learners could continue with their work even if I was not there. Huge gain in my books.
