Socrates: Excuse me, but someone left a large ugly plastic thing in my classroom. I tripped over one of the hanging wires.
Staff: Socrates, that’s your new smartboard. Tomorrow is a faculty development day so you can learn how to use it.
Socrates: What am I going to use it for? Separate the talkers? Plato and Xenophon are so chatty.
Staff: It’s the latest technology that delivers quality instruction to your students.
Socrates: Am I getting fired?
Staff: No, Socrates. It doesn’t replace you. It makes your job easier.
