[Interview with Psychology teacher – Brookdale High School]

“Do you know what?  There’s a meme in our staffroom that’s someone’s printed.  You know those old kind of old fashioned ones and they’ve got it in black and white, and two teachers carrying a box.  ‘Thank God I’ve got this data.  Now I know what to do’.

But, if I was taught how to do – if I had some in servicing on how to use it more – I’d be better off … I’m happy to get involved, I just don’t really quite know how”
