Our biggest problem is people reporting the 'system' isn't working. Now which system are they talking about? The word 'system' is used to describe whatever isn't working at the time.
the admin system
the curriculum system
slow machine? - system isn't working
whiteboard broken or spiking - system isn't working
something is broken - system is crap
SIMS? - system doesn't work properly
The sun isn't out? Our system isn't working
We also have staff moaning that the technical staff are not pro-active but reactive.
Yes - teachers are a problem.
An interesting observation. In my school my classroom never has any problems. Everything works. The machines never go down, there are never any keyboards, buttons, mice, monitors missing. Cables are always in the same place. Speakers work blah blah.
Strange that :-)
In this order:
Staff saying 'PC is broken... help!'.... to which I no longer even respond without more information!
Projectors... power off/not displaying a video media.
Playing DVDs on PCs... GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!
