In this particular instance there’s something very satisfying at finding yourself slowly being made redundant.
My team of Digital Leaders are proving to be worth their weight in iPads.
So far this term they’ve set up 20 iPads (twice) – unlike me they fail to be daunted and depressed by the inconstancy of Configurator and it’s repeated failure to carry across all the payloads.
They’ve even turned the inputting of settings into a race – I wash never very good at races and now it turns out that I’m not even fastest
or second fastest at setting up an iPad.
They update MacBooks and laptops and make sure the correct software is installed.
They troubleshoot all kinds of everyday problems.
Today we received an SOS from a class teacher who couldn’t get the microphone to work on an app.
TeamA were despatched, but they returned with the iPad.
I scratched my head and tried to record (in vain) until one of the Digital Leaders asked if we’d checked that the microphone was enabled in the settings.
I’m sure I’d have got there eventually, but how great to be pipped at the post.
