Frivolous technology innovation

SIMSIf you could have a technological innovation in your classroom, what would it be? I’ve decided I’d like the equivalent of SIMS thought bubbles. I’d love a little switch or scanner I could use so I could see thought bubbles pop out of the top of my students’ heads. It would make life so much easier if I could quickly see why they were not concentrating, why they are hyper, why they look like they are in shock, why they are all droopy. The SIMS also have moodlets so it would be good to know if the students were hungry or grumpy. Maybe the moodlets would be better. I don’t play Sims so I am not sure which I should plump for. I have seen the SIMS screen a million times when my daughter lived at home and I have had students who have used SIMS for their French to very great effect. We teach students from all sorts of backgrounds and family situations. We teach students who pop in from overseas or interstate and so a teacher has to adjust very quickly to new personalities and characters. It would make life so much easier if I could do a quick scan and see the issues at a glance. I know it would probably cut across privacy requirements but at the moment I am just putting my frivolous wish out there. They already have voice mood monitoring tools for phone calls. I just want a quick scan to see indicators of mood and issues.
