Incompetence or Lack of Knowledge?

Posted by on Apr 3, 2012 in Education, Technology, The "Pad" Principal | 0 comments

It really amazes me sometimes how incompetent some people seem! I was reflecting earlier today on this very issue. At school, we had a District representative arrive who wanted to know about the SmarLabs, and how they have changed over the past year.

One of the interesting things about my job though is that I get to see recent studies and headlines “in the flesh.” Here is an example: Over the past few days, more than 100 Emails have been flagged by our content compliance system within Google Apps (the program we use for student email accounts).

The story of my life seems to be the need to constantly update, revise, and recreate my websites. This is great, but it seems like the majority of my sites are down the majority of the time.
