Back and on track
After an eternal, yet, time-flying summer break, school is back; and neither students nor teachers are losing time to begin working.
We opened up the first class of innovation with Mr. Bon's keynote; however, we weren't seated for long. As soon as the presentation reached a conclusion, we began doing some hands-on work. As pitched by Bonnici, freedom is our topic this semester. our projects will somewhat relate to the greater subject, and finding some ideas for that project was our task that Tuesday afternoon.
Before we knew it, we all got into groups and began debating. Everybody had their own ideas in mind and wanted to share them with our peers.
That same day, once I got home, I opened my laptop and began to organize. The incidents at school really got me thinking more about my organization this semester. If such efficiency is being led so early into the semester, then I must be efficient in my own time as well.
D I G I T A L O R G A N I Z A T I O N T I P S :
1. Folders are your best friends:
Please don't be one of the desktop-clustering type of person, color code and organize your documents into folders.
2. Evernote for to-do's:
Get into the habit of writing down your homework or pending errands in an Evernote checklist.
3. Hard-drive it:
Don't have enough memory and are sad to erase data? Buy a hard drive to store it all, and keep your laptop junk-free.
I have to say this has definitely been one of the most productive first weeks of school. Not only did we quickly jump into conversations and discussions; however, watching us all engaged and embracing what will be our future innovation project, was something that brought me true inspiration.
