Using some blue tablecloths from Dollar Tree and a cheap lamp from Home Depot covered in wax paper as a makeshift "blue screen" to make short music videos for my students.
I guess it's a good thing we went to Costco before we left for Japan. We should be good for awhile, at least.
We're back in the US and back to a world filled with unbridled panic for no real reason. You can't buy TP, paper towels, hand sanitizer, Clorox wipes, water, milk, eggs, rice, or beans in almost any store.
I'm not sure what leads people to the panic purchasing. It took several stores to accumulate this much. We will try again tomorrow.
Our schools have decided to shut down through April 3rd. We will be 'distance teaching' beginning Monday, March 23rd. Right now we are all self quarantining and using Google Hangout (video conference calls) to connect with each other as we set up the system for the students to receive their lessons moving forward.
