Reflection: Routines and Procedures Element i-movies - Section 4: Elaborate


I try to bring technology into the classroom throughout the school year through the use of different programs and applications. 

For this lesson I have chosen to use i-movie because I have access to a class set of emac computers.   Over the years I have learned how to clone the computers and choose programs that are within these computers' limits.  When I use these computers in my classroom I have to teach students to be patient and how to use these older model computers and programs.

I am really excited for the technology changes that are occurring at my district, particularly with a new program that is providing students with i-pads.   The roll-out has begun with 9th graders this year (who do not take chemistry), but starting next year I will have access to i-pads through my 10th grade students.   This will allow me to have students work with this new technology which will be quicker and easier to use and will also make it easy to share videos through uploading to a class site or shared with a dongle via the projector.
