2. How do you plan to manage the device(s) in your classroom? Do you have ideas/suggestions that others may find useful?
The expectations will be set high from day one. With technology comes high responsibility so having the students log into the devices with their id's would be good. I believe having a check list that must be completed before the end of class will also help the students stay on task. Finally, just plain old school active monitoring will suffice. The students are really excited that technology is being added more and more to lessons. They also love that they are given leadership roles with this technology .....like allowing them to teach a portion of the lesson integrating the new technology skills they have just obtained.
