Reflection: Lesson Planning Submitting Essays Digitally and All That It Entails, Day 2 of 2 - Section 2: Instructions For Submitting A Digital Copy of An Essay

 

My student population has a mixed level of experience with and access to technology. Roughly half to two thirds of them own a smart phone and are savvy with digital media. Clearly, the ones that don't own one are significantly less capable and have a difficult time with simple functions of a computer or the internet. Though most have some sort of access to technology, they are certainly not using it for school work, especially not for written essays, so most are new to what I went over in the tutorial. I considered typing a document with directions, but there is such variety in email accounts and they are ever changing that it would be hard to produce something to fit all needs. I decided to highlight the terms that are still used and seem to be a part of the language of technology, such as "attach," "browse," "compose." I hoped that they would be able to figure it out on their own. At the end of this period, most seemed to be quite capable at figuring it out on their own and I just needed to help a few.
