    And we get in trouble for 'teacher bashing' on this board? HAH!

    Complain about us all they will, their life only gets harder without our help because they lack the skills to do it themselves

    Not quite sure whether this is just ironic or if the mistakes are deliberate but none of this (either on the TES web site or Edugeek) helps.

    I think it's reasonable to say that there are good and bad technicians and good and bad teachers (with all shades in between) and then just leave it at that otherwise we do end up descending to the level of small children calling each other names!

    Q: How many teachers does it take to change a lightbulb?









































































    A: "Well, we'll need a couple of inset days, some disaggregated time, a meeting or two with our union reps, and a management point. Then we'll get the caretaker to do it".

    Just have to post it on TES then!
    Say what you like about someo of the comments on TES...but atleast they're mod's as hung up on the use of mildly colurful language. OR as i like to say life-experience language. +1 to them on that score.

    ROFLMAO... even my other half will be weeing herself over that one...

    Small note of irony though, they start it with a small thread and we go overboard with a 3 page one... Hmm... metal frame with lots of smashed glass and stones lying around me' thinks.. .

    One notes that his only experience teaching in schools was a 6 year stint 1965-71 - very relevant! I don't imagine they had many IT Techies back then.

    Oh and he's currently a partner in the company Camsoft, it just so happens that i had to install some of the software they supply a few months ago. Guess what... The installation instructions didn't work, had to work out a way of getting it to work on CC3 ( without totally relaxing security ) myself. Worse was finding out that using it I can create students in the same class with the same username and password, how's that going to work?

    Still maybe he's opinion of techies stems from some not so good ones that he's worked with rather than a lot of good ones he hasn't.

    The service ICTstaff described is better than what we get now.

    Yeah we can talk to our techincians; but since they talk out of their arses and they are always sitting down, the responses are muffled at best.
    Either that school is in a bad way or he is serioiusly misguided..


    Or both.....

    Aww, bless them.

    What do you call a pair of teachers?

    Almost a normal working year.


    Why do technicians never need calendars?

    Because the teachers count down the days for them.


    I upset several people at a friends informal "get together"/house warming..she told me they were all trainee teachers.

    So, we got into the swing of it, then I smiled and looked across, and asked "SO..tell me guys..why do you all want to work for only half the year then? A real job too much for you?"

    Bearing in mind my missus is an ex-education tech as well, we were rather enjoying it..

    It seems teachers have nothing else to do but bash technicians, sad really.

    a quick hunt through the TES forums always leaves me on the brink of suicide, through despair for the human race...


    ...nope, changed my mind - discounted suicide in favour of killing everyone else
