The Saddest Sound in the World

What is the saddest sound in the world?

A teacher excited about a new idea/ tool/ pedagogy having to ask "Are we allowed to use that?" (In other words "Is this blocked?")

A little tear rolled down.....
True story. Honest.

I like your idea of being a yes man. E.g. "hey, there's this thing I want to try...can I use it?" "Yes, I will make it work for you!" Truly, this is what education needs...yes men...and women.

The teacher I overheard was about Google Docs - an amazing collaboration tool.
