Reflection: Modeling Scholastic's Digital Tools - Section 4: Student Work


I feel that this was incredibly successful with my students because we practiced as a whole group before enrichment pull-out started. I planned a typical work page, scheduled time in the lab, and showed both classes how to complete the work. We walked through each step on the work page and explored the digital tools together. I also set an expectation that work should always be completed even when certain features aren’t available. Perhaps the highlighting tool isn’t available – ok, then you use the pen to underline. Both aren’t available? Then write down important facts using a good old-fashioned pen! There’s always a way to be a problem solver and complete the work when technology isn’t cooperating. Having paper copies of this week’s issue in the basket provides a fail-proof way to complete the work even when there are no computers at all!
