OK, you know when you get a new puppy and you love it and you couldn’t live without it and then you find out it has hip dysplasia?
That’s a little of what my relationship is like with my new Interactive Whiteboard.
I wouldn’t give it up for the world. I have come to depend on the tools it provides me. I love it.
But I am consistently re-calibrating, re-starting, re-booting, and it so far won’t read the kids remotes. I have come to intimately know the board representative. We have each other’s cell phone numbers and my husband is starting to raise an eyebrow. I have also had tremendous support from our Director of Technology and the few other district pilot teachers.
But the bottom line is that the board has become a daily joy even while I have daily frustrations. And like that puppy that you automatically fall in love with because of the joy it brings you the minute it comes into your room, I am going to do everything I can to make it work.
