Study done in a fourth grade classroom for
five months infused with technology.
Every student had a computer on their desk.
They were also provided with additional
computers with multimedia and print
“Because authors can remove and insert
words, sentences, and even paragraphs, they
find it easier to compose with technology
than with paper and pencil.”
Students were learning to work with peers
better. Students were asked to gather
resource books from the library and
information from internet.
Study showed that students had gathered
more and same efficiency information on the
internet than that of library resources.
Students were able to make presentations on
directed subject to the class with videos,
slide shows, student-made magazines, books,
I feel that this article shows that students
were given every resource and it showed that
having technology in the classroom really
seemed to help. Students were able to
gather information faster, giving the teacher
more time to teach than to have students
researching. This gave students time to have
other students read or check there work and
gave time for corrections without starting all
over on another sheet of paper. I think
teachers can appreciate having papers typed
out opposed to written with some students
not having the best writing.
“… reading and editing an integral part of
the process of language instruction and
Students are able to watch the teacher do it
on their computer, students can follow along
and do it with them.
Teaches the importance of editing.
Instead of teachers reading aloud articles,
students can get them on their computers
and read along or by themselves.
Teachers teaching a foreign language can
translate words easier.
This can save paper!!
This article is very true. This is very
important in the editing process. Gives
students the opportunity to have students
read over their work. Students have the
ability to translate words, sentences,
paragraphs to another language.
"Technology has enabled many new
educational opportunities, including support
for different learning styles and providing
greater access to high quality coursework.“
Teacher and student collaboration with an
interactive learning enviroment.
Schools looking toward a online program
Wimba extends beyond obvious subject like
foreign language and speech.
Allows students to learn material through
visualization through video.
Very active environment.
Wimba sounds like a very interesting source.
I would love to watch students interact on it.
I would wonder if they have to update their
site very often, would that slow students
down by updating the software, or is it easily
done? I do believe that having the visual
aides might have helped me in the classroom
setting as a child, I always had to watch
something first and then do it.
Students are very interested in technology.
It seems that students are learning more and
getting information faster than text books.
Students are learning to work with each
other at a younger age.
I think that overall technology has its
positives and negatives. It is something we
need to keep trying, the computer world is
growing and growing.
