Technology In The Classroom

  1. 1. Technology in the Classroom By Madeline Reber
  2. 2. Magnet Unit <ul><li>We had limited technology access for whole class settings, however, we tried to incorporate technology into several of our lessons during the Magnet Unit. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Magnet Video </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Powerpoint Presentations </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Overhead & Visualizer </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Video Clips <ul><li>Different parts of the video were used, depending on that day’s lesson. This particular day, we were learning about electromagnets. The students then made their own electromagnets. </li></ul>emedia video
  4. 4. PowerPoint Presentations <ul><li>As an accommodation for those who are visual learners and those who cannot read small print very easily, we had a clear cut PowerPoint with large print for each lesson. The students were then able to take teacher facilitated notes as well as have a visual while we discussed that day’s topic. </li></ul>
  5. 5. PowerPoint Presentations
  6. 6. Overhead <ul><li>I did not get an actual picture of what we did, but this picture depicts it very well. We had the students come up and test the affect different sized magnets had on the iron filings. The teacher was only there to supervise, but the students did all the work. Afterwards they all went back their seats, and we had a class discussion about what they discovered. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Principles of Effective Technology <ul><li>The students were not often able to handle the technology themselves due to limits on the technology; however, whenever possible, we had the students use it, hands on. </li></ul><ul><li>Students react well to videos because it is what they are used to. It was great to see how they responded to the video and what they could remember when it was simply lecture. </li></ul><ul><li>The video also enabled students to see magnets used in different situations that they could not physically experience such as compasses on ships, etc. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Principles of Effective Technology <ul><li>We were able to show the students how magnets behaved using the video clip, even when we did not have the actual tools to show them. It also gave the students ideas on how to test other object in the room for magnetic abilities. </li></ul><ul><li>The lessons would not be nearly as effective without the technology. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Teaching Reflection <ul><li>Overall, the technology worked well, and I think it aided our lesson. However, if I were to do it again, I would probably use the technology at stations instead, so that small groups would have access to the technology rather, than whole or half class. </li></ul>
