Do Students Know They’re Signing Up for a Computer Classroom
Our computer sections are usually labeled as such in our scheduling catalog, but sometimes students register without realizing they will be taking a computer-supported class. Rarely do students object to taking our courses in the computer classroom, but we remind teachers to encourage students to change sections if they won’t be comfortable working on computers every day.
We also recommend that teachers note which students can’t type. We have a typing tutorial available in one of our drop-in computer labs so that students can learn touch typing. Most teachers require either that students use the tutorial to learn to type about 30 words a minute or switch sections.
