It’s the simple things that make the difference

9 10 2009

My school is large- large enough to have quite a substantial budget ( although it is never quite enough!!) but today made me remember that it is often the simple things which make the most difference to the user.
We installed dotty font by sassoon. It cost me about £30. It have saved 5 teachers hours of work. Talk about value for money!! Instead of handwriting every child’s name a few times on a page, they could type them, copy, paste, print and ….. job done. 5 happy teachers with time left for the importnat part of the job. ….talking and interacing with the pupils. Hopefully they might even get a bit of a friday night to themselves…well worth my £30.
