Reflection: Joy Book Commercial Work Session: Computer Lab and Filming - Section 2: Filming


When I was a kid, my classrooms were quiet.  Actually, they were often silent.  That may have bothered a lot of kids, but I loved it.  I found it relaxing.  Of course, once I got older, left private school and eventually went to high school, things changed some, but sat at your desk and you did your work (and prayed for an A/V cart to show up, once in a while.)

Today, school is not like that, and that's a good thing (for the most part.)  Kids interact, cooperate, collaborate, and develop social skills.  They use technology and "get their hands dirty" with real projects.  Don't get me wrong, I am down with all that.

But, still.  The chaos freaks me out a little.  I don't mind when it's contained in the classroom, but when it leaks all over the school, I worry.  I pace and monitor.  I am relieved when it's over.

I know it's good for them.  And it's good for me, too.  I am making friends with the chaos.  We just aren't that close, yet.
