What will you do differently next time you teach in the computer classroom

Back Back to Other Responses

Brenda: Probably the thing I would do differently is wait to introduce them to the computers until after the add period. I wasted a lot of the time the first couple of weeks playing catch up with the late adds. Also, I think I would spend more time thinking about how to work the lesson plans around the computers rather than vice versa--i.e., I'd forefront the fact that it was a computer classroom more in my planning. By thinking of my lesson plans first, I found that often I just treated the computer as a word processor and I think it can be much more than that in the classroom. I'd also definitely use the class forum more than I did and also e-mail more as a way to check up on their reading or get them to ask me questions about the assignments.
