Classroom Job: Technology Helper

Like many teachers, one of my classroom jobs is TECHNOLOGY HELPER. They turn the computers on in the morning, man the computer when we do research as a class and manage the iPad sign out. However, last year I implemented a new task that I will use for the rest of my teaching career…

How many of you have an LCD projector that you turn on and off many times a day? How many of you are like ME and constantly misplace the remote control and get frustrated when you have everyone's attention and then have to stop to locate it? I even tried making a designated spot for my remote, but it didn't help when I was the other side of the room. Now my technology helper keeps the remote on the top of their desk and when I say "Technology Helper LCD please", they know what to do! This has been a "simple" lifesaver for a teacher who is always on the MOVE :)
