  • Classroom Management
    What works now?
    On your index card please write one classroom management technique that you use in your classroom to keep students on task. (It does not have to involve technology.)
  • Lesson Design
    Remember:
    Technology is a tool
    Teaching isn’t about the tool
    Curriculum drives the technology
    “O2” – ubiquitous, necessary, invisible
  • Lesson Design
    Use backwards design
    Project-based learning
    Authentic assessments
    Students as producers of content
    Collaboration
  • Incorporate the Four C’s
    Communication – Prepare students to be effective communicators.
    Collaboration – Use online tools to discuss ideas, share research, peer edit, and collaborate.
    Creativity – Promote writing, artwork, videos, and combinations of them.
    Community – create a community of learners to deepen knowledge through interaction.
  • Examples
  • Classroom Management
  • Understand
    If you have poor management now, laptops won’t change that.
    Adding laptops doesn’t mean more learning.
    Adding technology to a boring lesson does not necessarily make it interesting.
  • Before You Start Teaching
    Have clear expectations
    Plan well
    Use technology with a purpose
    Don’t add technology to the same old lesson
    Test your lesson on a student computer
    Use Edline for links, handouts, quizzes
  • Before You Start Teaching
    Think about what works for you
    Headphones? Music?
    Chat?
    Email?
    “Multitasking?”
    Rearrange your furniture?
    Consequences?
  • Practical Tips
    Laptops fully charged at 8:00 am
    RATS – read all the screen
    Be willing to help each other
    “45 your screen”
    If teacher closes lid, teacher opens it
    MBWA - management by walking around
  • Expectations for Students
    Let’s review them
