Teaching in a 1:1 Environment

  1. 1. Follow me on Twitter: @mosier_histgeek TEACHING IN A 1 TO 1 ENVIRONMENT Lance Mosier, Middle Social Studies Curriculum Leader 8th US History
  2. 2. What I’ve learned • One to One gives students options for final products. (iMovie, Keynote, PowerPoint, Word/Pages Templates, ComicLife, etc..) • Student quality of work appears to be better. (When students take a vested interest in the project.) • Allows more “projects” because “class time” is not as big as an issue as before. • Easier to differentiate curriculum and provide “multiple pathways” to learning.
  3. 3. What I’ve learned continued... • Important to pre-teach expectations, assignments, and model as much as possible, but still give students enough freedom to wow you. • Important to have “consequences” for students who are off- task or easily distracted. Place yourself in classroom where you can view student screens. Remember “I’m Still in Charge.” • Have “paper-copies” or a PLAN B ready for those students without a computer or when the network goes down. • Good Teaching is still Good Teaching. (Active Participation, Clear Objectives, Checking for Understanding, etc...)
