It was a typical reading workshop. I watched as readers snapped pictures of their books to create a BookSnaps. I listened as readers launched debates about the most important part of the story. I chuckled as book characters were considered and brought to life in Chatterpix. Just a fun reading workshop in second grade.
That's when I realized the noise was coming from MY ARM! Yes, my arm! Somehow I had hit the 911 alert on my Apple watch! I hit cancel and walked quietly to the classroom teacher and said, "Please call the office and tell them I accidentally called 911." As the office laughed and asked WHO it was that made such a massive blunder my watch began to ring! It was indeed the 911 operator who wanted to ensure we were safe and not in need of assistance!
All day long teachers and the principal chuckled at the instructional technology coach who accidentally called 911!
