Here is the second instalment of my ongoing series on creating a healthy balance between screentime and time being present in the real world in the online courses I teach. In an attempt at encouraging offline breaks, I am putting reminders into each Unit this term of my BCIT Course, BCST 1073: Building Your Digital Media Presence, to take a break from the computer and get up to stretch, dance, meditate …etc. I will be sharing these Activity Breaks with all of you here, in case you are thinking of doing something similar. Feel free to copy and modify these for your own online courses, if so desired.
Activity Break #2: Full Body Shadow Puppetry
A fun and playful reminder from my creative partner, Lori Yearwood, to take a break from your screentime, get up and stretch. What better way to do that this Halloween season, then by creating Shadow Monsters with some full body Shadow Puppetry!
If you feel so inspired to photograph or film a shadow monster or shadow puppetry of your own, then be sure to share it within this discussion, so the rest of us can enjoy it too!
If you have links to your own or other people’s activity breaks in online courses, I’d love to see and hear about them. Tell us about them in the comments below.
In case you missed it, here is my Online Learning Activity Break #1: Git Up Challenge.
