A Little Bit of Resolution
And I shall call it Lazarus. My iMac that is. And I promise this will be my last post about it.
My Mac world spins blissfully on once again as last weekend I was able to install a new hard drive in my iMac. I purchased a 500 GB Seagate drive, and with the help of my dog (who insisted on sitting right next to me so she could take in the wonderful smell of computer), installed the drive in about 30 minutes. It’s quite amazing to peer into the innards of a computer as well engineered as the iMac.
I was also able to use a USB to SATA converter to get all my data off my old drive, so no valuable photos, music, or graphics files were lost. I did try to run DiskWarrior with no success, which affirmed how totally hosed the drive really was. The short of it is, I’m back in business.
Just like my experience creating this blog, there is so much here for me to consider in correlation to the learning process for students. I don’t think there is any refuting how powerful a learning experience can be when it is motivating and guided by self-interest. I spoke at length about this in one of my previous posts, so I won’t rehash it all again.
Tomorrow I plan to return to thoughts that are more directly tied to technology in the education process. Thanks for sticking with my ramblings about my computer issues.
