Year 7, 8 and 9 I was taught by IT Teachers who only knew about MS Office applications, well they knew as much as the book they was reading from told them. I was disgusted that someone could call themselves an IT Teacher but when asked "How do I fix this problem?" they knew nothing, absolutely nothing, they not even know how to install RAM.
I moved into Year 10 and decided to do BTEC ICT, I thought that I would be taught by teachers who knew about hardware and have looked inside a PC. For a couple of months the teachers made out they knew all about computers including the hardware and how to install it but one day my teacher told us that to make a vector image you make it in paint and save it as a jpeg as all vectors are saved as jpegs! GOD HE WAS SO WRONG!
My other teacher told us Linux was made by hackers who didn't want to follow Microsofts laws! HOW I LAUGHED!
One day I had to show my class how to install RAM, of course I rehearsed it all before with my teacher and she was so amazed by the inside of the computer and asked my all these questions about RAM and installing it as she had never done it!
I CAN NOW TELL YOU I HAVE LOST ALL HOPE FOR MY CLASS MATES WHO STILL BELIEVE OUR TEACHERS KNOW ALL ABOUT COMPUTERS AND FOLLOW THEIR EVERY INSTRUCTION.
Come on you techs, please go into teaching!!!
