‘Hilarious Teacher Technology in the Classroom’ is as funny as it is true
Former teacher and current comedian, Devin Siebold, really stepped up his moral support for his former profession when Covid hit.
As well as his podcast, Crying In My Car, he releases a lot of school-themed comedy videos, like this one – guaranteed to put a smile on the face of the overworked and underpaid workforce.

Although it’s a year old, the video has cropped up again because of a viral post on Reddit, where it’s been getting lots of love.
Devin clearly hit the nail on the head.

At some point during your lesson, it will decide of its own accord that your class period has ended and ascend back into the heavens, where the acoustic ceiling tiles dampen your curses and cries of frustration. Only when you have given up and resorted to painstakingly replicating your presentation on the whiteboard will it deign to once again descend in all its glory. All hail the projector screen, may we bask in its presence.
As a bonus, here’s one of Devin’s most recent videos, which shows the very real result of a teacher bringing a sharable snack into class.
