Today the connection was particularly cantankerous… when the screen wasn’t completely pixelated or frozen, the sound was lost…. very frustrating when you’re doing pronunciation practice…. At one point of particular desperation having rapidly tapped “no sound” and “I can’t hear you” into the chat, followed by frantic waving at the camera, I caught myself ready to start tapping the screen in a final attempt to alert the learner. Am I the only one who has (almost) done such a thing? Another moment of techno folly I’ll share with you; when I had my first touch screen device and wanted to copy and paste, I used to keep my finger very poised and erect after copying. I moved it very carefully until I found the app I wanted to paste to. Well, imagine if it had fallen off and got lost….
