Technologic Incidentals


Becoming willing and able to keep communication lines open, by way of telephone or cellular phone: I know that professors of mine, most likely, would become upset if I was to receive a call during class; however, if you make sure to have your phone charged and turned on, what will happen is your phone will ring and, then, it will go to voicemail, whereupon, you can return the call when you are out of class.

Pick a ringer that is not amazingly annoying and, if possible, (I know my phone has this option) put your phone on vibrate mode for the times in which you are in class; the reason why I’m including this tip is due the fact that I, personally, have experienced the situation wherein I have turned my phone off and forgotten, for several days, to turn my phone back on; this is one disadvantage of having an LD and becoming enabled to use adaptive, helpful technology tools.

However, with repetition of the process, necessary, for you to keep communication lines open and not offend your professor, you should become enabled to make this particular situational dilemma; it is best, usually, to think about all of these types of potential situations, prior to the beginning of the semester and talk to the LD Support staff at your school about these possible rough spots and as well you should communicate the possibility of these types of things happening with your prof, due to the fact that he or she will be aware of the fact that you really are a serious students, no matter what your LD or your lack of technological proficiency might project.
