Tool # 8 After viewing the videos I am looking forward to using new technology in my classroom. I have learned that there is a lot of options, that the students will have to be taught basic stuff like turning them on, and how to operate them. Rules and procedures will have to be set up to ensure safety for the students, care of the equipment, and to ensure learning to be happening. I plan on having groups and one "expert" in each group to be able to provide assistance to the students in each group. A different student would be responsible for putting the equipment away another one to make sure it is being charged. One very important factor will be teaching the students how to communicate with others safely and how to find accurate information on the web. Just because one can find something on the internet does not mean that the information is legitimate and so it will be important to teach the students how to determine accuracy.
