Reflection: Lesson Planning Getting Techy (Day 2): Using Technology to Showcase Mini-Research Projects - Section 4: Demonstrate Skills


One important note, that was reinforced to me by our district's instructor of technology, is that whenever planning to use technology in your lessons, have a back-up plan!  As well as we can be prepared and organized, sometimes, for whatever reason, technology goes astray, and that is well-without of our control (or at least mine! Ha!).  So, one thing I always have in my back pocket, or in the back of my mind, is what am I going to do if the technology isn't working.  These lessons on using technology to allow my students to share their learning are wonderful and worked well for my students, however, if the technology had been cooperative, we would have needed an alternate plan.  So, just remember to keep that in mind-what will you do if something goes wrong and the technology isn't working?
