The Force (SOL 18 #22)
I don't print often, but it seems when I do, my printing capabilities fail.
Over the last couple of days I have been communicating with our friendly IT guy through the district help desk. After a few notes back and forth the next step would be for him to remote into my laptop to try and solve the problem from the comfort of his own office. I agreed, of course, because I really do need to print a permission slip.
I saw my mouse begin moving across the screen as he tried to work his magic. I'm not going to lie, it was a little unnerving to watch someone else maneuver around my computer.
I called one of my iSWAT students (Student Willing to Assist with Technology) over to see what was happening. I thought she would be interested in watching along with me.
Once one student started watching, I suddenly had a crowd around me. I decided it would be fun to play a little game with them. I look at one of the kiddos and said, "Look E, no hands!"
His jaw dropped. "How did you do that?"
I shrugged. He got the attention of one of his friends.
"Look A, she's moving her mouse with the force."
