Here’s a summary of some of the things I learned and published this week.
You can follow my daily readings as they happen here. Below are a selected few, with commentary, from the past week.
- Chromebooks certainly are a good solution for a number of reasons including that you don’t need to worry about viruses
- The things that you see in libraries – not the modern things that you might expect – but check that closet
- I’ve always been kind of conscious about the number of tabs that I keep open in my browser but this feature might make me a little sloppy
- This only makes sense. If we believe that COVID doesn’t spread among kids, we know that teachers are vulnerable
- Keeping a backup of everything is always a good idea – this post talks about how to do it in Google Classroom
- Brampton is a high COVID zone – this is why
- If you print from your Chromebook, this is an important read to make sure that you transition nicely
- A report about how people in Toronto are catching the virus
- The MACUL conference for 2021 goes virtual
- We hear about the Dark Web all the time but what is it really and how do you get to it?
- A cool selfie from atop the Ambassador Bridge
- Now that a vaccine is on the horizon, focus on those who might not want to get it
- Even in this horrible year, there were some good things that happened
- Will there be consequences if you don’t get vaccinated in Ontario?

I’m not sure that I knew this but it’s actually pretty cool.
It’s Sunday morning and I’m watching the Formula 2 race from Sakhir.
Like most sporting events this year, there are no fans in the stands. They actually raced here last week for the Grand Prix of Bahrain. There have been a couple of venues that we used for two weeks in a row this year to try and keep travel down. Sadly, the Grand Prix of Canada was cancelled.
What’s neat about this race is that it’s at the same location as last week but it’s on a mostly different track. Due to the design, there are actually two tracks at the same location.
I’ve seen small things in other tracks but this race is entirely different – certainly much shorter – but the planning that went into last week’s race had to be changed to make for a completely different race.
I don’t know why all tracks don’t do this.
