pay back time

Last week i started teaching the basics of computers to nursing students.Since its just the know how's of using computer(something i do everyday) it was easy for me as i didnt have to prepare much.Just what to teach each day and giving assignments.But after my 2nd day i knew how my teachers would have felt.There were 3 girls in the corner who didnt do anything they were asked to and had a blank look in their eyes when i taught(sounds familiar?).And i always thought i would be the "cool" teacher but i actually got super annoyed and told them off!And i "scolded" those who didnt do their assigments(ok,seriously how hard is it to do a word doc,a powerpoint presentation and an excel sheet?).Well thats been my week so far.Today i started teaching the 1st year students.Last week was 2nd years.Yes,i lead a boring life.

Hey, nice work... they will catch up. Maybe they are a wee bit intimidated by the system and all...

First make them interest in the computers. Explain them the advantages over the paper work. Give encouraging words like “Good” “You got a good memory” etc. Make competition within the students to know about the subject. Make them happy. Finally I am glad to know somebody like you take over the I.T in your organization.
