Writing into the Day: #9

Yesterday, we talked a lot about the technologies we do and do not have access to, as well as the problems that unequal access creates for teachers and students. And we talked about our frustrations about what we want/need, what we don’t have (support-wise), and what we fear/worry about.

This morning, start writing your needs/wants for technology and support.  What are your wants? What are your needs? Who can help you with those things? What non-school resources do you need to make teaching with technology more productive/effective?

  1. My needs and my wants coincide. I want to have headphones for each student and dependable technology. I need to know that there is someone in the building that will help me when I come across something I don’t know how to do. I want the freedom to try new things without being judged or assessed on the first attempt or even the first year. I want someone that I can trust to help me and support me not someone that is going to report to the powers to be about my weaknessess etc… My non-school resources will be Will and Steph. LOOK OUT!

  2. I need time to start laying out the new standards and incorporating technology into my thinking and into my revised curriculum. I brought in a new lesson plan format from http://www.leadandlearn.com tTemplate #2) to share with the group.

  3. What are your wants? What are your needs? Who can help you with those things? What non-school resources do you need to make teaching with technology more productive/effective? I has several wants in reference to technology in my classroom. Basically I would describe my class as a low-tech classroom setting. I would like to have access to a SMARTboard and an i-pad. I plan to ask the media coordinator for a SMARTboard. Hopefully, she will allow this request. Funding for i-pads would have to come from an outside source. I purchased an inexpensive e-pad for my personal usage. I have thought about purchasing another e-pad for the classroom. Another source of funding could be non-profit organization.
