Why? WHY has Technology Tina turned in her eight-page essay in eight separate documents? Each page is saved separately and uploaded to the LMS. HOW does this child not know that she can keep typing beyond a single page and that she doesn't have to save and start a new page in a new document?
This is the same Technology Tina who spends each class period tweeting about what's happening in class. This is the same Technology Tina who complains that writing notes down hurt her hand, so she attempts to photograph the board when I write reminders (i.e. "Remember to submit your final project to the LMS by 2 p.m. tomorrow"). This is the same Technology Tina who complains that I don't send her homework reminders to Facebook (despite the fact that our LMS actually IS integrated with Facebook if she turns that option on in her settings). This is the same Technology Tina who bemoaned the fact that someone used PowerPoint for a presentation (i.e. "That's SO 2004," she derided). And yet, the most basic of assignments: writing a paper in a SINGLE document, seems to have confused her.
And now I have eight different documents open for a single paper.
