Lost time Technology is a wonderful strategy to use while teaching but at the same time it can become a problem. More students are in advantage to cheat if their assignments and test or quizzes are posted via the internet or email. Either someone can help them, give them the answers or even do the assignments for that person. Con's of Technology Cont. Another con to using technology in a classroom is that there are a lot more distractions. The students get distracted by anything and having a smart board or an over head projector or even a computer in front of the class the children are going to get distracted. By distractions time is also lost and the teacher can fall behind in his or her schedule because of this. Technologies and Media Used In a classroom , regular technologies that are used are : SMART boards, over head projectors, laptops, desktops, cellphones and iPads. SMART boards & Laptop A laptop is connected to a Smart board and can be used to teach a lesson. As a teacher uses the smart board to teach, students can come up to the board and work on the problem that the teacher is teaching. Over Head Projector With an over head projector the teacher can teach lessons and show the students what she is doing. When the teacher puts something on the over head projector it projects to the screen and the students see it. Technologies and Media Cont. Desktops In every classroom there are computers for students to use. Some classes have more than others. The students use these computers to do any activity that the teacher assigns. Students can also use the computers to practice a certain subject. iPads Students can use iPads in the classrooms to take notes or follow along if the teacher is teaching through a website. Also students can work on games that help them enhance their skills. Students with Disabilities & Technology Often times students with disabilities are rejected by their peers; which results in isolation. There are many resources for people with disabilities to be able to use technology. Students with Disabilities & Technology ESOL Students & Technology There is a great amount of students who do not speak English all over the Unites States. Therefore, there is a program to assist these students; The ESOL or ESL program. Those students who are not fluent in English take this course/class to learn English. Many of the students who do not speak English are Hispanics and come from South America and the Caribbean. In these countries they do not speak much English, therefore when they come to the United States they are unfamiliar with the English language. ESOL Students & Technology In the ESOL or ESL program students are required to use technology. Students use audio tapes and video tapes to hear and see others speak the English language. This way they can then practice it. They also use computers, cell phones, iPad and other electronics to do the assignments. Teachers & Technology Teachers use technology in their classrooms everyday. They use technology to teach their students, but they also use technology to benefit them as well. Using a computer , via email, to communicate with the students parents makes their life easier. Instead of parents coming to school everyday with different questions they can email their child's teacher and have their questions answered. Teachers & Technology Teachers also use computers and iPads to plan the activities and lessons they will be doing. They use programs such as but not limited to; Microsoft word,Excel, Access, PowerPoint etc. Through these programs they can create their lesson plans, Homework for the students, postcards and many more. Teachers & Technology Here is an example of a teacher that used Microsoft Word to make this monthly planning for his or her class.
