There is always the one…

the oneThere is always the one:

  1. The one who has not done their homework
    The one who can’t log in
    The one who has forgotten their password
    The one whose iPad is flat
    The one who has no battery power on their laptop
    The one who forgot the note
    The one who can’t find the file
    The one who cannot upload their work
    The one who forgot to upload their work
    The one who does their version of the assignment…

There are lots of ones and with technology they are there to test your skills. Do you have policies? Do you have work arounds? Can you problem solve? Are you open to new ideas? The one who does their own version of the work needs a conversation about work expectations but more often than not, they are the student who will show you a different approach using technology. Problems with the ones using technology are a good way to teach it because it is needs based. It helps them to learn to be independent. There are times when you have to breathe in and breathe out slowly but most of the time these ones are good value in terms of teacher training and enhancement.

  1. Of course we need ‘the one’s’! This concept also applies to staff!

    • Hadn’t thought about staff. The one probably applies to all social groups, but as a teacher you are always dealing with the one!
