Thing Number 8
I understand that the Net books provide a way for students to take pictures and make videos as well as other laptop functions. I look forward to having this technology in my classroom but I also feel that we need more tech support not only for teachers but also for the students. I was able to take an Ipad home over the summer and have become more familiar with it. I think technology is integral in our classrooms but I believe that the students need to start learning basic keyboarding and research skills beginning in elementary school. There are time limitations in the classroom and younger students require much more support. Many of my students do not have access to computers at home and have no basic skills.
