The real work starts

When this great time has come and gone
  The hype is no more there
The work of training must go on
  No effort may one spare
Facilitators now must guide
  The teachers to e-goals
Advice and help they do provide
  Support all willing souls
They pay a visit once a week
  Or more as needs dictate
Much time is spent – of e to speak –
  The effort truly great
They mentor teachers as they train
  And do a skills transfer
When they themselves are under strain
  To others can refer
The vendors may some training give
  On their specific tools
This does the training load relieve
  A blessing to the schools
Within the school there even may
  Be teachers who possess
Some I T skills they could relay
  To fast track the process
The goal for labs that must be met
  Aim for a stable state
A good time table must be set
  With labels for each date
The lab’s time table must dovetail
  – Must match – with all the rest
So that good order may prevail
  And P Cs yield their best
Make sure that ample lesson time
  Is allocated for
The subject that is viewed as prime
  The one that forms the core
Then look at all the time slots left
  Available for use
Time’s precious – no child leave bereft –
  No minute may one lose
There may be time for language skills
  To be improved by all
Perhaps research the schedule fills
  Some time for facts to trawl
A good time table put in place
  Could take a week or so
If absent – schools will chaos face –
  To lab the kids won’t go
When school time is accounted for
  Do not let things go slow
At end of school day – time for more –
  Kids still to labs should go
Each evening or afternoon
  Lab hours can extend
Use all the minutes opportune
  The kids’ poor grades to mend
There’s Sunday and there’s Saturday
  When school doors may be closed
On these days don’t turn kids away
  If they’re I T disposed
