Today was a wreck, and it was not the kids fault. In fact, they were great! My technology, though, had it in for me.
A bit of background. We have a lot of technology in our school. I mean, a WHOLE LOT of technology that is supposed to make learning engaging, interactive, and a lot of other edu-speak cliches. Actually, its pretty good WHEN IT WORKS. When it doesn't, as Keith Jackson used to say,
All this time, the kids were behaving quite well. No conflicts broke out. Everyone played nice. I heard several expression of sympathy and pity. Some of the kids I have had the most trouble with were on their best behavior. I will have some nice parent contacts to make tomorrow.
Finally, with a cry for help sent to IT over the help line, the tech issues got worked out. But if this should happen again, I know what my response will be.
