200 North Central Avenue, Hartsdale, NY 10530  White Plains Highs School Places White Plains High School
550 North St. White Plains, NY , 10605 914-422-2182 Places Home Here I was able to iobserve a Spanish Class and I was at the resource room The first Educational Institution I visited for this observation was my Public Library. My purpose of visiting the library was to observe how people in our community use the computers. I found out that depending on the section of the library the use of computers varies, for example when I went to the second floor where the children and teen library is located, I observed that many children were using the computer for games. I also observed that the amount of computers increased on the second floor. First Location: White Plains High School Internet Policy
Internet access is available on selected terminals for all users. The Internet allows users to connect to networks of resources outside the Library. The Library has no control over these resources, nor does it have complete knowledge of what is on the Internet. The Library does not warrant that the information available through its Internet connection is accurate, authoritative, factual, timely or useful and does not monitor and has no control over the information accessed through the Internet and cannot be held responsible for the content of information available through its Internet connection. The Greenburgh Public Library assumes no responsibility for any damages, direct or indirect, arising from use of its electronic services, or from its connections to other Internet services through our provider. The second site I visited was the White Plains High School. I was intrigue about the use of computers in High school .I had the opportunity to observed two different classes. The first one was a bilingual class, the room where all students spoke only Spanish. Mrs. Gonzalez uses her computer to teach them English as well to teach them Literacy, she also used different technology tools like e-books. White Plains High School
550 North St. White Plains, NY , 10605 914-422-2182 The third and final observation was done at the Highview Elementary School; here I wanted to see how children on lower grades use the computers at school. I was able to visit couple of classrooms and the computer lab. In this school computer use is highly restricted and well supervised at all times,

All technology tools are use only with one purpose " Educational" Highview Elementary School The Educational Fields I chose to visit for this assignment were in three different locations. The purpose of using three different locations was for me to be able to compare and contrast the purpose of technology use among different age groups. I went to the library to see the use of technology on the children, teen and adult section; then I visited the White Plains High School and lastly I went to an elementary School. I was very surprised of my findings during this observation, but I was also glad that I had the opportunity to learn from this experience. With this field experience, I learned that the purpose of the use of computers varies depending upon the people and the places. The purposse of it can be educational like in the Elementary School, It can be social like in the library or it can be for research like in the high school.
I believe that computers and technology is a great tool for students, teachers and people in general if they are use in the right way. I am happy to share that I as a teacher I use technology in my classroom all the time and it has been a great tool for Educational purposes. Reflection Ipads Computers Education
