GSE339 How Did We Get Here?

Listen on Apple Podcasts
In episode 339 of Geekiest Show Ever, Elisa shares what got her interested in tech and what makes her a geek. We check in on distance learning with Melissa who has some stress-reducing tips for dealing with the new normal of using technology for longer periods of time.

For digitizing worksheets is a free tool for annotating PDFs online that works with Chrome and integrates with Google Drive. If all you have for source material is a smartphone photo, convert the image file into a PDF then use annotation tools to add blocks of text, shapes, lines, highlights, and other marks to digitally “write” on the page.

If you or your kiddos are struggling to sit for long periods of time in front of the computer, try keeping a small selection of quiet fidgeting tools on hand like: stretchy bands, Velcro, sequin bands, or an unplugged game controller that has buttons. Sometimes balloons can also be good for practicing deep breathing or just for stretching. Remember that it’s ok to stand up and take stretch breaks.

Try this Mindfulness Grounding Exercise called “5-4-3-2-1”

• Take a deep breath then name five things you can see.
• Take a deep breath then name four things you can touch. This is where fidgets like bands, sequins, Velcro, etc. can come in handy.
• Take a deep breath and name three things you can hear.
• Take a deep breath and name two things you can smell. It helps to keep something nearby that has a pleasant scent like a candle or even scratch and sniff stickers. You can also put some drops of essential oil onto cotton balls and seal them in a Ziploc snack bag to keep at your desk.
• Take one last deep breath then name one thing you can taste. Again, a handy snack bag that has some breath mints, Lifesavers, Tic Tacs, or other tasty treats can help in this process.

Geekiest Show Ever 327 – They Say It’s Your Birthday…

Audio Link

This week we celebrate Mike’s birthday by looking at people born on his birthday, tech as old as he is and reminiscing about the “Good Ole Days”.

Instead of picks we find presents for Mike. Elisa has four for Mike to pick from. In the first column is two gaming chairs to chose from. One is the Healgen Back Massage Gaming Chair   and the second is the X Rocker Pro.  In the second column is either Dan the Sausageman Northwest Necessities Gourmet Gift Basket  or The $58 Gift Box . Melissa is concerned about Mike being able to see so she would get him 40-Watt Equivalent A19 Non-Dimmable Blue Laser and Bright White Dual Mode LED Light Bulb . For himself Mike would buy a Cow Canvas Wall art  .

Tech that is as old as Mike

A Brilliant Idea: Nick Holonyak, Jr. and the LED
