online social community: perfect example
Ok last bit of Lester news, www.uglyoverload (nemesis of cuteoverload.com which makes me barf because it's TOO cute), will probably be posting Lester soon!
Not sure what schedule is tomorrow since was gone today but I presume be at OT's house at 830….guessing we are spending day in rural Miss. 🙂
Classmate and I spoke on AIM tonight about a sensory integration powerpoint inservice she will be doing…I've promised to guide/assist a little in exchange for her doing the whole creative commons thing and letting me post the finished Powerpoint on YouTube 🙂 We had chatted on phone earlier and she was not motivated at all to start it…I forced her to pull it up and type one thing into like 10 slides, just as a start…I'm hard-core when it comes to making people stop procrastinating, LOL. ….she wanted so bad to figure out design first and I was like…you have ten minutes. If you have no slide design by then, move on for now. I AM MEAN! Fixed a few big typos and deleted some extra-extra-extraneous, otherwise intact.
A good example of online social community, professionally (Well quasi professionally…)…collaborating online so we can both be doing other things at same time as talking…not even in same building, etc.
Karen (10:13:06 PM): …how is your powerpoint going
FrenemyA (10:13:19 PM): it looks kinda purty
Karen (10:13:30 PM): great did you do anything beside slide design? ;lol
FrenemyA (10:14:17 PM): I typed a couple of things.. trying to define tactile, vestibular, etc.. without taking direct definitions from the book
Karen (10:14:43 PM): watcha got so far
FrenemyA (10:14:59 PM): Tactile
Provides feedback primarily through the surface of the skin
Gives information about the texture, shape, and size
FrenemyA (10:19:18 PM): Our chapter in our peds book breaks si down into 4 categories
FrenemyA (10:19:57 PM): 1. sensory modulation problems 2. sensory discrimination and perception problems 3. vestibular-proprioceptive problems 4. praxis problems
Karen (10:21:30 PM): Do you want to do something similar with your powerpoint
Karen (10:21:35 PM): that would be an easy guide to follow
Karen (10:21:45 PM): how long is this
FrenemyA (10:22:05 PM): not too long.. I just wasn't sure if the language was too hard
Karen (10:22:27 PM): Use the expression but then way simplify it
Karen (10:23:09 PM): are you doing case-smith?
FrenemyA (10:23:37 PM): yeah
Karen (10:23:59 PM): how about Intro to Sensory Integration – mention how normal senses known but some of magic of OT is knowledge of lesser known Ayres 3 senses –
Karen (10:24:02 PM): define the three
Karen (10:24:10 PM): explain problems in sensory integration/processing can lead to behavioral issues
Karen (10:24:21 PM): and then go into 4 – parter of case-smith with dumbed down language
Karen (10:25:02 PM): lots of pictures, lots of examples, lots of treatment activities…stick to dealing with it and less of actual theory. if its for like all the teachers and peeps who arent into OT. ???? just suggestions, not commands lol
FrenemyA (10:26:18 PM): thanks.. sending you powerpoint so you can laugh.. check it out
Karen (10:31:05 PM): ok gimme a sec and i shall

FrenemyA (10:34:38 PM): done

FrenemyA (10:47:56 PM): do you like my first senses slide
Karen (10:48:02 PM): yes i love it actually
Karen (10:48:23 PM): might do a slide right after 5 Normal with the “Three Lesser Known” slide, have like a single Ayres history slide
——— Talk of SI, then mention of tomorrow, she had some big family stuff crop up tonight so wasn’t feeling prepared for her peds group tomorrow.
Karen (10:50:36 PM): what is your group gonna be on, lets chat just rilly fast on it so you can go to bed without feeling totally unprepared
Karen (10:50:39 PM): lol
FrenemyA (10:51:02 PM): okay..let's see…
FrenemyA (10:51:48 PM): I have copies of 5 aliens that they can color.. then you cut the aliens in three slices.. face body and legs.. then you can trade body parts to make your own “cosmic combo”
FrenemyA (10:52:12 PM): I'm not really sure what that could cover.. yah know.. Is it about diversity, sharing??
Karen (10:52:51 PM): everybody's different but everyone is special
Karen (10:53:00 PM): diversity
Karen (10:53:18 PM): green face, blue body, purple legs…….pink face, whatev….
