My Best Teaching Is One-on-One


Of course, I team teach and do special lessons, etc.


But my best work in the classroom is after the lesson is over --
going one-on-one,
helping individual students with their assignments.


It's kind of like with computer programs, walking the client through hands-on.
The job isn't really done until the customer is using the program.

not plugged in

(On the train home, last night:)

Of fifteen people near me, on the same seat or the one across from me, three people are not plugged in in any way. (I am plugged in, but not to the network, so maybe that's four.)  By plugged in, I mean, earplugs inserted or cellphone or some other electronics out, and actively using the device.

One of the three is reading smartphone ads from docomo.

I am reminded of some science fiction scene in which everyone is plugged in to the indoctrination station.

Maybe Fahrenheit 451, but portable.
