Reflection: Setting Up the Digital Classroom Community - Section 2: Lesson


Classroom technology is not something everyone has access to.  I am very fortune at this point to have a classroom set of laptops; however, I haven't always.  This is actually the first year.  There are many ways to still create and use a digital classroom without have a one to one setup.

For many years, I used the school lab and the few computers in my classroom.  Students logged in at home as they could.  Some students attended after school tutoring to access labs.

Last year, I had eight iPhones in my classroom.  These were donated.  The sims card was removed so no calls coud be made, but it had all the other features I needed.

We have a Bring Your Own Device policy as well in my district that enhances what we are able to do with technology without the added cost.

As the Big Idea says, "If you build it, they will come."  You'd surprised how many students have access at home and are motivated by the online community.
