Summary for C4T #3

For C4T teacher 3 I was assigned Ann Carnevale. Her blog post was titles Computer Centers- Take 2. Her post was giving teachers different ideas on how to use and what to use the computers in the classroom for. She says first we need to decide the rotation of the computer use. She suggests putting a list of the students name by the computer and just go down in the list in sequence. After deciding on the rotation, you need to decide when you use them. The best time would be when you’re not directly teaching to the whole class. The next step she tells us is to decide what activities we will be teaching. The activities should take 5 to 15 minutes. She also put pictures up as examples taken from her own class room. I thought Ms. Ann did such a good job giving ideas and options for computer use in the classroom. I especially liked the pictures she posted because I am more of a visual learner. I really enjoyed this blog post and I learned a lot from her.

    Thank you for your post on our class page in New Zealand. The students are very much looking forward to the social dancing at the end of the year. Its a tradition for our school that dates back many years, the teachers try and make the dancing contemporary with the music as much as possible to motivate the students. We try and offer a significant range of opportunities to our students after school in Sports and Cultural activities. Thanks for the comment the students are always excited to receive feedback from the USA.
