When answering this question, you can follow these general steps:

  1. Acknowledge the importance of being prepared for technical difficulties: You can start by stating that you understand the importance of being prepared for technical difficulties or challenges that may arise during a computer lesson.
  2. Describe your approach: Explain how you handle technical difficulties or challenges. You can mention that you have a systematic approach that involves troubleshooting, researching, and consulting with colleagues or IT support staff if necessary.
  3. Provide examples: Share some examples of how you have successfully handled technical difficulties or challenges in the past. You can describe a specific scenario, the steps you took to resolve the issue, and the outcome.
  4. Emphasize the importance of communication: Highlight the importance of communicating with your students about technical difficulties or challenges. You can mention that you make sure to keep your students informed of any issues and work with them to find solutions that work for everyone.


Here is an example response:


"I understand that technical difficulties or challenges can be frustrating for both myself and my students, so I always make sure to be prepared for these situations. My approach involves first troubleshooting the issue, checking for any obvious solutions. If I can't resolve the problem quickly, I'll then do some research to find potential solutions. If I'm still having trouble, I'll consult with my colleagues or IT support staff.


In the past, I've had instances where students were having trouble connecting to the internet or couldn't log into a program. In those situations, I worked with the IT department to resolve the issue and kept the students informed of the progress. We were able to resolve the issue quickly, and the students were able to continue with the lesson.


Communication is also important, so I always make sure to keep my students informed of any technical difficulties or challenges and work with them to find a solution that works for everyone. By doing so, we can continue with the lesson and minimize any disruptions."
