Ever wondered what’s in a #CommLeader
’s bag? Here’s mine: notebooks, pens, tissues, keys, a lipstick, snacks, a hand sanitizer, my laptop, and my secret weapon to stay awake- a mint nasal inhaler from Thailand. What’s in your bag? #commlead #uwcomm
We love Brain Breaks to get students engaged!
Here’s one called Gotcha! Here’s how to play:
In circle groups, have students put their left hand, palm up, in front of the person to their left. Then, have them extend their right index finger and place it in the palm of the hand of the person on their right. When you count down 1,2,3 and say, “Go!” students try to do two things: Pull their right finger away from the person on their right and try to grab the finger of the person on their left. (Give the students three tries)
This week we kicked off our ILM approved Trainer the Trainer and Mentoring Qualification. Laurell Hector from McManus HRD ran our 3 day course and we shall soon kick off our own QC Training Academy #QueryClick #development #training #ProfDev
Design inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes. Something just catches your eye and bam! Inspo. Sometimes, you’re not even sure what quite catches your eye; it can be very subtle but you start to see it integrate into a new project or product somehow. From concept to visual hierarchy to balance and composition, design principles keep us continuously inspired. Like your favourite Wes Anderson film, there is something about a look that pushes creative content to the next level and sets it apart from the crowd. 💥
Just some of my favorite things: a good cup of black tea, an awesome book, and Kinky Boots 👢. ⠀⠀
Last week the author of “Friction: Passion Brands in the Age of Disruption” came to my class as a guest speaker. We learned a lot from @thejeffrosenblum
and I personally enjoyed reading this book a lot. It’s definitely a book that I’ll refer to time and time again! — @yvonnexiaoo
The people you surround yourself with are like elevators... they either bring you UP or they bring you down ❤️

Every goodbye leads to a new hello. The fall is a great time to reflect on the past, take the things you’ve learned, and set your sights toward the future. Set goals and welcome new challenges. Stay humble, stay curious, and appreciate all the things, good and bad, that lead to opportunity. What have you learned or let go of this fall? 🍂

It's always a pleasure to catch Jenny in action!! So much about her work is simply helping teachers get the AMAZING ideas they have in their head, onto the board ...and then finessing it to have a little structure 😀Great time with the 3rd grade teachers at Lake Elementary last week, building a project that will truly serve their community. Thank you for having CraftED at your campus! @lakedolphins #golakedolphins #profdev #teachersofinstagram #teachers #education #teachersfollowteachers
One of the things that keeps us creatively inspired at Digital 55 is travel. Not only do you get out of your comfort zone and see other places in the world (read: visually stunning stuff which is obviously conducive to creativity), but it provides context on the nuances of life. Tiny interactions really stand out, and being able to be part of the day or bring a smile to someone you just met? So cool and such an amazing honour. A complete stranger can let you into their world, into their personal experience in just one glance, one small exchange. And travelling with your bestie is truly the bomb. (Laughs for days, right?) 🤣
To quote John Lennon, “Life is what happens when you are busy making other plans.” So true! Sometimes things happen that can make us feel out of control or angry, but what has been really apparent during this startup phase for Digital 55 is to trust the process. Things happen. Things work. Some things don’t. The things that need to will land exactly when they are supposed to. And some things are worth the wait.
