What We Do Can Be So Geeky

Sometimes what we do is incredibly technical.  I just spent the last two days discussing Amps, Watts, breakers and Luminance and it had nothing to do with class.  I just bought four brand new lights for my mini studio.  When we finally got them wired right and hung – we blew the breaker.

I never realized I could get maintenance to show up at my room so fast.  I should blow a breaker more often.

When I designed my new classroom seven years ago, we put in a small TV Studio.  It is barely big enough for a small interview set and a chroma wall.  But it works.  Except we had two problems, not enough light and not enough power.

Both those problems have been fixed.  We now have a studio with four lights and plenty of power.

But I sometimes feel like I spend more time keeping our equipment working, than I do teaching.  I guess most days it is worth it, but some days it does get frustrating when you want to teach, but end up spending you time dealing with balky equipment.

  1. Pretty awesome that you were allowed to design your own classroom. Even neater that you have a TV studio! Hey, I returned the favor today and nominated you for a 2008 Edublog Award. Good Luck!
