Reflection: Perseverance Ready to Publish! - Section 3: Go To Work


I was flabbergasted by the ease with which my students were able to type cohesive sentences on the neos. We had one major bump in the road when many of the students thought if they made a mistake they had to backspace to get to the problem to fix it, deleting all their hard work. When I realized they needed to know about the arrow keys to navigate the text - (no mouse on a neo) - I called them to the carpet for a mid-session mini-lesson. The sighs of relief were audible! I will definately TEACH that part of the neos next year before I turn them loose to type. Even my least able students were able to produce writing on the neos.
