I want to slap every person who has called me "good with computers" now, cause I swear I went cross-eyed for a minute after reading Nett's post about the behind the scenes of the board. Working in a school where the average teacher age is 45, "good with computers" translates to "can operate Word and Excel without starting the building on fire." We're going 1:1 next year, meaning every student will have a computer (in our case, a Chromebook). Half the teachers are shitting themselves because they don't know how to turn a damn computer on, and the other half are excited to get technology that isn't from the damn Stone Age. Too bad it won't work cause the wifi sucks. Regardless: Focus: Real Ideas for integrating computers into schools. I will be teaching United States and World History, and I have a few ideas, but why not crowd source some things? If you were a student today, how would YOU like to see computers integrated to your class. Every single student will have them, so nothing is off limits. Alt focus: All the many, many, many, many ways computer integration in a school can backfire. How would YOU cheat if all tests were online. What kind of mischief should I be on the lookout for.
