    5. 5. Classroom Management<br />What works now?<br />On your index card please write one classroom management technique that you use in your classroom to keep students on task. (It does not have to involve technology.)<br />
    6. 6. Lesson Design<br />Remember:<br />Technology is a tool<br />Teaching isn’t about the tool<br />Curriculum drives the technology<br />“O2” – ubiquitous, necessary, invisible<br />
    7. 7. Lesson Design<br />Use backwards design<br />Project-based learning<br />Authentic assessments<br />Students as producers of content<br />Collaboration <br />
    8. 8. Incorporate the Four C’s<br />Communication – Prepare students to be effective communicators.<br />Collaboration – Use online tools to discuss ideas, share research, peer edit, and collaborate.<br />Creativity – Promote writing, artwork, videos, and combinations of them.<br />Community – create a community of learners to deepen knowledge through interaction.<br />

    12. 12. Understand<br />If you have poor management now, laptops won’t change that.<br />Adding laptops doesn’t mean more learning.<br />Adding technology to a boring lesson does not necessarily make it interesting.<br />
    13. 13. Before You Start Teaching<br />Have clear expectations<br />Plan well<br />Use technology with a purpose<br />Don’t add technology to the same old lesson<br />Test your lesson on a student computer<br />Use Edline for links, handouts, quizzes<br />
    14. 14. Before You Start Teaching<br />Think about what works for you<br />Headphones? Music? <br />Chat? <br />Email?<br />“Multitasking?”<br />Rearrange your furniture?<br />Consequences?<br />
    15. 15. Practical Tips<br />Laptops fully charged at 8:00 am<br />RATS – read all the screen<br />Be willing to help each other<br />“45 your screen”<br />If teacher closes lid, teacher opens it<br />MBWA - management by walking around<br />
