Young kids love their teachers and most of them like school. Computer class is a perennial favourite because math games or language games can transform drill into fun. I chose the image at the left because although there are only four children and there is a dog (not allowed), it gives an impression of the enthusiasm and crowding round that is typical of elementary kids.
The other day I was in the computer room at class change when grade three students were finding computers to work at, logging on (not as easy as you think) and verifying the assignment which had already been explained in detail before arriving. Several children clamoured around their teacher, a veteran of a few years, all vying for her attention. All wanting their issue attended to and solved immediately, if not sooner. Calm in the chaos, she dealt with each problem. I didn't even hear the question that warranted this response but I loved it. Without missing a beat, she answered. "Life is about solving problems."
Kids face problems, teens face problems, /adults face problems. It is so true life is a journey of problems and learning to rely on your own resources early - priceless.
Sure enough, in a couple of minutes, the kids had settled down and were working away. Problems solved.
