What do I do?
1. I prep.
2. I check my email.
3. I talk to teacher, staff and students at my school.
4. If there is a lot of down time after these things.... I write letters to random friends and family and enjoy the down time.

Crank the AC and Work on My Master of Science in Education. Drink coffee and have the occasional nap. Good Times.

I fantasize that what I'm doing is really noble and meaningful and that I'm not wasting away my precious time here in Korea.

There was nobody in my office during my deskwarming so I would either watch shows, movies, facebook, read a book, or take a nap on the sofa. They weren't too strict with the time so I would leave around 3- 3:30ish.

We were just told about deskwarming today in Orientation.  One suggestion was to try and negotiate with your school and ask if you could use that time to take Korean language classes instead...depends on the school for sure.

You could may try learning the Korean alphabet...or ask teachers if you can get the draft curriculum and plan lessons ahead of time?

I am deskwarming this week as I am new at the school. I am hoping to make it as productive as possible!

Today is my first day at my public school. As long as you're not desk warming tens of hours every week, I think it could be fairly productive. You can catch up on lesson planning and such so that you don't have to take your work home with you. And, I've read studies about spending excessive amounts of time sitting in front of a computer being bad for your health; while the act of sitting in front of a computer is bad for your health, it seems the other reason is that it is generally connected to an unhealthy lifestyle.

Some health problems that can be exacerbated by desk warming:

- improper posture
- joint problems (my keyboard and mouse setup is not ergonomic at all)
- vision problems from looking at a computer screen for long periods
- circulation and skin problems

Do yourself a favour and give your body regular breaks from your desk.

I agree.  I, too, used to roam the corridors of my schools after classes for some light aerobic exercise when I had to deskwarm, or even during an afternoon break during the school year.

Get a list of movies, download them (and the subs from Gomtv.com) and create a library for future use.

Clearly planning lessons and making resources would be the way to go?
No?

I recommend using Prezi.com
Makes powerpoints look like a thing of the past!

Also makes them more fun to create

Woow this is a scary thing... Man I am scared of this.
I also have a feeling that I will be doing lots and lots of desk warming in the near future.
Crossing my fingers that I will not have to do this but my school's pretty strict so I am probably going to get stuck with desk warming!
