What do you wish you had known before you started teaching in the computer classroom

Back Back to Other Responses

Christof: I wish I had known how computer illiterate most of my students were going to be. I think I assumed that they would have had significant exposure to computers beforehand and therefore would be pretty quick studies. In fact, introducing students to the different facets of the computers--logging on, saving as text only, e-mail, etc.--turned out to be a lot more time consuming than I had anticipated. I wish I had been more aware that activities take longer in the computer classroom than in a traditional classroom.
