Reflection: Real World Applications Quotes in Motion: Interpreting Dr. Seuss - Section 3: Modeling...

 

Every time I try to use technology, I am faced with many challenges- too few computers (I only have three), slow servers, students who don't know how to manipulate programs- the list goes on and on.  What I find, though, is that no challenges I face replace the need my students have to learn and practice their technology skills.

To face the technology shortcomings that my building has, I have to make adjustments.  In this project, I let the students work with a partner to minimize the effect of only having three computers.  I made sure to model Power Point for the kids to build confidence and provide background knowledge for when they actually get to complete their own.  Leaving step by step instructions by the computers was another way to build confidence and independence with the computers and finally, providing the graphic organizer let students plan their work out before they got to the computers making it quicker and easier to move students through my three computers.
