Anything that can go wrong, will.
The other line always moves faster.

Doug Johnson (Blue Skunk Blog) referred to a previous BSB post in his version of a rant today which led me to these pearls of wisdom and humor. He speaks from experience as a media specialist and those of us working in assistive technology can relate to many of his rules and laws. In addition, I'm sure we can add a few of our own. Here are a few to get us started.
Assistive Technology Rules, Laws and Observations:
- Ignorance about assistive technology is not an excuse for avoiding the topic at an IEP meeting.
- Assistive Technology consideration is not limited to AlphaSmarts.
- The more features added to a software program, the greater the likelihood it will include bugs.
- Those bugs are guaranteed to appear during professional development.
