After two COETAIL courses, I felt it was time to come up with some tech goals for myself and my students for the upcoming school year.
This is what I’ve come up with:
|Tech Goals for Me||Tech Goals for my students|
What I realized after last school year is that I kind of expect students to just know how to use the laptops and navigate applications, web browsers and sites. Some students had prior knowledge in managing macbooks, but others had no clue.
My plan is to take my time introducing the macbooks to the students, and combine direct instruction with time to play and experiment. The students will hopefully gain confidence in taking risks and solving problems when faced with technology.
Looking forward to authentic use of technology in my classroom this year.
