There are tons of videos that will work. http://www.stemnet.nf.ca/~jscaplen/integration/english/prep2.html visit the companion website ae www.ablongman.com/bitter7e What are some considerations behind the choice to group computers together into labs versus putting them into individual classrooms? How can collaboration with colleagues lead to more student opportunities to use technology? How might the physical conditions of a classroom and educational philosophy of a teacher affect how computers are placed? How can teachers make the most of the computers that are available? How can teachers utilize parents, senior citizens, and students to help with technology integration? What is the role of the media lab in schools? What is the purpose of One-to-One computing? What are key issues when undertaking a One-to-One computer initiative? What are the pros and cons of a computer laboratory? What are the pros and cons of one computer to a classroom?
