Q: What does the name “Cloud to Ground Learning” mean?
It’s about meeting your learning goals by combining digital (cloud-based) resources with grounded, local ones. It’s also about bringing vaguely defined, “cloudy” aspirations into your on-the-ground reality.
It plays on the term “cloud to ground lightning” from meteorology. There’s power in making the connection!
Q: Can you write me a recommendation?
A: Of course!
Q: How can I demonstrate my work to an employer or educational institution?
A: We can work together to create products that show your process or final project. A website or blog is often useful, and I can help you make one.
Q: Do you work long distance (via Skype, etc.)?
A: Yes, I do work with clients in distant places. The key to making it work is to have strong on-the-ground support.
Q: Do I have to know exactly what I want to work on?
A: No. I can help you organize your ideas. For really big projects, I generally suggest breaking them into discrete parts. It’s helpful to complete one learning program before starting another, just as conventional education is broken into courses.
