New Challenge

Here’s a riddle:  You know what’s harder than teaching technology to newbie group of 7th graders?  Trying to teach it when the power goes out.  ‘Nuff said.

Good thing that I had a Plan B…and a Plan C.

My Nemesis

Do you know how hard it is to teach using technology when the wireless is not working?  I am just thankful that my students were infinitely patient during this whole frustrating process.  Luckily for me, at least technology worked for most of my classes today.  Poor Period 4.  They are so behind the rest of my classes.  Two days of tech problems.

On a good note, the students and classes who had more success with technology completed the scavenger hunt of my class website with almost flying colors.  I enjoyed watching them going from page to page looking for the answers.  To most people, this might have looked like a colossal waste of time, but my students were getting to know my class website while engaged in informational reading.  Double the effect.  Love it!
