v6.2.3 - moving along, a point increase at a time

Παλαιότερα μπλογκαρα…

Τις προάλλες έπιασε το μάτι μου ένα ενδιαφέρων πόστ που το έχει γράψει μια συνάδελφος μου.  Ο τίτλος: Όπου κοιτούσα έβλεπα μπλόγκ-πόστ.  Η μορφή του δημοσιεύματος είναι ποίημα για το πώς οι λέξεις και τα θέματα απλός

Review: Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Space Between

Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Space Between by David TischmanMy rating: 4 of 5 stars A good combination of TNG stories. Some are early in the series' run (Worf and Troi being a couple king of points to that), and the set of stories continues into close to the end TNG. From what I can tell we got a hint of Section 31 looming in the shadows, which would have been an awesome continuation

Review: Greek America At Work

Greek America At Work by Dan GeorgakasMy rating: 4 of 5 stars I came across this short book as a reference on a Greek website. It was actually quite informative as a short introduction to Greek migration to North America (specifically focusing on migration to the USA). It's obviously not comprehensive, but it should be a must-read for Greek Americans. View all my reviews

Year in review: xbox

Unfortunately this year the Microsoft Xbox team didn't do a year-in-review graphic for their plays 😢. It would have also been an opportunity to do a decade-in-review, but oh well.  Missed opportunity.  I guess they are working hard on the next Xbox, which is slated to be released December 2020.I connected my Microsoft account with True Achievements to get a sense of what was played last

Year in Review: Google reviews

I guess last year I decided to leave some reviews for various venues using Google's "leave review" functionality.  I guess it was a combination of free time and prompts of my phone to leave reviews (seems like I am quite susceptible to such behavioral suggestion...at least for a few weeks) :p

Adieu (old) Microsoft Education

I don't often write on this blog about educational services and edtech stuff, but since I've started the Adieu series here, I might as well post here.  Microsoft has offered free online training for educators. Of course, most of the training is on how you can use their products and services for teaching, so it's a bit infomercial-y at times, but it's good nevertheless.  The old site looked

Adieu Credly

A while back (5-6 years ago?)  digital badging for learning was the new hotness, and I was pretty excited about digital badge credentials.  Quite a few companies rushed to join this goldrush offering online platforms for credentialing, but it seems like the dust is settling.  With 2019 gone, one of these providers (and won't you know, it's the one I used for the classes I teach) is

Year in Beer: An untappd Year in review

Every year some social sites tend to a year in review with data from your activity on the networks.  This year is no different.  I thought I'd post some of the data that came my way.   Today I have some data from Untappd.  I started using Untappd in 2014 when I went to Edmonton for my Doctoral Cohort's initiation into the EdD program.  I was trying out new beers and wanted

Year in Review: Goodreads

Every year some social sites tend to a year in review with data from your activity on the networks.  This year is no different.  I thought I'd post some of the data that came my way.   Today I have some data from Goodreads. I always choose a low number of books to read each year.  I'd much meet and exceed my goal rather than not reach anything.  My goal this past year

Year in Review: Swarm

Every year some social sites tend to a year in review with data from your activity on the networks.  This year is no different.  I thought I'd post some of the data that came my way.   Today I have some data from Swarm (what used to be foursquare).  Location check-ins don't seem to be as big of a deal these days (with most competitors having gone the way of the dodo), but
