So, if you've used a computer at school lately, you've probably noticed that the network connection is a little slow. OK, seriously S-L-O-W! We're talking dial-up slow! Slow that makes The Slowskys look fast! =)
One student complained, "Dude! My grandma can run faster than this!" And, "This sucks!" is a common refrain. Don't believe me? Watch this video! As a result, we've had to take drastic measures to communicate with each other when the internet goes down. CLICK HERE to see for yourself. =)
S-L-O-W-L-Y but surely, we're going to bring the Casa Library into the 21st century. I'll make it my mission in life! =)
And, trust me, we're off to a good start. Last Friday, our Assistant Principal and coordinator-of-all-things-tech at Casa, Mr. Mark Molina (a former employee of IBM, a totally-cool computer nerd, and a super-nice guy) and I went to visit the Teacher/Librarian at our feeder school, Kenilworth Junior High, Ms. Connie Williams. CLICK HERE to see pix of our site vist.
At the Kenilworth Library, the three of us took a look at their tech: their wi-fi network, their laptop carts, their computer desks, etc. It was almost unbelievable how modern they are! (And they're middle schoolers! LOL!)
We brainstormed and pow-wowed and came away with some really great ideas and advice on how best to make Casa techier. So, even though it's frustrating for now, just know that your librarian and your a.p. have your back and your best interest and your technology needs in mind, and we're working on fixing your computer problems. For real for real! =)
