This school year, I have pretty much stayed out of things. We are in our 3rd and final term for this school year and I sent an email to all N's teachers. We are working to find out where the delay is for him. He loses it somewhere between his head and the paper. Orally, he can tell you anything you want to know. He is a wealth of knowledge. With that, we have found that he does better with his laptop, as opposed to with paper and pencil. Well, you'd think, being at a 1:1 laptop school, this would be a perfect fit for N. Unfortunately, not all of my co-workers have tapped into their inner-geek like I have, ahem, despite "encouragement" from above. So, many
So, I sent off my first email, requesting that he be allowed to use OneNote and that they encourage the use of the assignment notebook tab. We'll see. I also asked if they were using Moodle or Canvas for their assignments, maybe a touch passive aggressive, ah well. Loose papers or even regular notebooks don't work with N. I can always ask my teacher turned firefighter to come in and have a meeting with the staff if there is too much of an issue.
Now, I am going to go back to watching the snowfall and starting my weekend. Happy Friday!
