Seems very well rounded.
I hope this didn't get to ranty towards the end?
network manager... what exactly do they do? - ICT - TES Connect
Seems very well rounded.
Well-rounded and threads like that are why I don't visit TES, that thread would push far too many buttons.
"I used to BE a network manager. Yes, there are some who ruin it for the rest of us. I get very annoyed when I see network managers doing it poorly. The 3 i have in this school are totally un-cooperative when you ask for anything and tell me "it can't be done", then i sit and explain how to make a GPO in active directory and how to push packages etc."
3 Network Managers in the school???!!!
I think that was an excellent post. Most people don't appreciate just how dependent they are on IT these days
Having taken the time to read the entirre thread... and someone raked up a 2 year old thread to restart the argument.. my answer is "You echo my thoughts exactly"
Mine too - but would spellcheck be a good idea? Don't want to give the teachers more reasons to diss techies!
Did you see the post immediately after?
Good post Dos_Box.
Here's a thought for you all - Are we any better with all the teacher bashing that goes on here?
fiendishlyclever (3rd June 2009)
A point that's actually raised on that thread (2 years ago)...
I think 'the cultural divide' is likely to be explored robustly on any forums, including ours... tolerance is to be encouraged, but occasional outbursts are inevitable, hence "Behind the Red Door"
On here, the frustration is shared amongst people who, largely, all have an IT Tech/NM background and the teachers are few and far between.
On TES, perhaps posters need to be more aware that the mix of occupations is much wider and teachers are far from being the only education staff posting!
Must admit I havent been on the TES forums since Bisley98. To be honest, if I were to read the TES forums and again see the kind of venom, near hatred and disdain the teachers on there have for my career and my work, I would probably resign completely and never work in education again.
I've often wondered why so many teachers look upon my career as something nasty stuck to the bottom of their shoe. Thankfully I am in a school with IT specialism and the staff here are not only all very friendly but are all quite clued up on IT... nevertheless the attitudes of teaching staff on a wider scope towards my job is frankly astonishing at times. Sometimes I think it would be hilarious if Techs all over the country just walked out for a month, see how the teachers do then. Sadly though this would impact the kids learning, which at the end of the day is what we are all, teaching staff and support staff alike, here for.
Besides which.... techbabes > teacherbabes

Neither dos box or grumbledook went OTT however at least one of the more persistent posters clearly believes that teachers are slightly above any higher power... obviously his school still uses chalk! at least that is the impression given by him.
I find it sad that so often what should be a sensible discussion invariably ends up as everyone else v teachers.
I am married to a senior teacher her view of life is that you appoint someone to do a particular job and if the decision making process is a good one the appointed person does it... not exactly rocket science!
Perfectly pitched responses I think. I tried not to reply... and failed... makes me so angry!
Jake - get back in the cage - you know what happened the last time you mentioned the 'B' name!I still twitch when I see that name
