Yesterday I mentioned that I had what I expected to be a class in the use of the Blackberries we will be receiving soon. I was correct in my assumption, but my manager switched my spot with that of another tech, which meant I was expected there in the morning, not the afternoon. So I went to the office and got set up for the class, which was on the computer.

What it turned out to be was an online version of the instruction manual. This sounds ingenious, as they could include multimedia, right? Except that the course is based on you having the Blackberry in front of you and being able to operate it. Like any other piece of equipment, it is motor learning, which is procedural memory; you have to do it to get it. Reading about it is useless. So, rather than waste my time, I informed my managers that I had a due date in my work that I had to get to and stormed out.
