  • 9. Initial Steps for Success
    • Teach students how to use the technology. This may take a few computer lab sessions before they master the strategy (Johnston, 2007; Hargis & Schofield, ).
    • Train a few students to assist you when working with the whole class (Laureate Education, Inc., 2010).
    • Problems and errors will happen. Test the technology before you use it.
  • 10. Blog-Example of the First Steps
    • Looked at examples of blogs on the internet.
    • Taught students how to construct and respond to blogs.
    • Wrote a blog and asked students to respond to my blog on a topic studied in class.
    • Students then wrote a blog on a topic discussed in class.
    • Peers responded to the blogs.
    • Note: Once students develop proficiency with the basics of the technology, I will develop lessons that teach how to embed hyperlinks, images, and videos.
