1:1 Classroom Management
“Teaching in a Tech-Rich Environment”
new teachers to technology
Rules in classroom
: in small groups (in less than 3 minutes) make a list of your classroom rules as they are now. Then imagine that eevery student has a laptop - and all that entails - what rules would you add to the list?
and expectations (academic and behavior) in my room (if in the lab, with mobile carts, or 1:1)
now translate to using technology (laptops)
Put the word ATTENTION on a screen and tell my students that class begins when they turn off their telephones, close their laptops, and shut their eyes for sixty seconds. I asked them to observe for one minute where their minds leap without any external distractions
Classroom furniture arrangement
: from where you are sitting, how many computer screens can you see in this room? OR how many notebooks can you see what they are writing? Now we will do some moving... just so you can see more
Discuss how arrangement will facilitate their teaching style and monitoring needs

Curriculum and standards: What are you teaching?
There are new
Student Technology Standards
from ISTE. They have been simplified and have moved from "learning the tool" to "using the tool." (There are new
Technology Standards for Teachers
from ISTE for you to look at. There are only 5 standards.)
Multiple Intelligences can convert to different technologies (give examples)
Searching effectively: Search techniques found in a great blog:
or use Google's tutorials:
Searching for a powerpoint using the advanced google search and the file format section.
(don ’ t discuss social bookmarking yet -
delicious or diigo
Find resources on the Internet about "the Odyssey" the first row (web pages), second row (video), third row (blogs), fourth row (wikis), fifth row (gaming), sixth row (journals, magazines, etc.), seventh row (audio/podcasts), eighth row (online experts)
share your findings with the rest of the class
Online Stopwatch -
choose a lesson/unit you will be using in your classroom in the early part of the school year or in the next few weeks. Create a book mark folder and try to find a good example from each "row"
making bookmark folders in your browser
reorganizing the bookmarks you already have
exporting your bookmarks (to move to another computer or share with a friend)
Previous Homework and Assignments (what can you use and what needs to be revamped?)
ITIP- you still use the same concepts we just adjust them...
: Motivate instruction by focusing the learning task, its importance, or the prior knowledge/experience of the learners.
look at a web site
search for a term or topic
for the students.
put on your lesson plans
put on your teacher web site
send out as an email
post to your blackboard
: Identify and teach main concepts and skills, emphasizing clear explanations, frequent use of examples and/or diagrams, and invite active student participation.
sign in, hand in (
: send a email, submit a document, add to a google doc, sign into blackboard, open a link, etc.)
"Pull sticks" (assignments, notes, google jockey, etc.)
Check for understanding
by observing and interpreting student reactions (active interest, boredom)
"backchannel" with twitter, wikispace notes, etc
following instruction by having students answer questions, discuss with one another, demonstrate skills, or solve problems. Give immediate feedback and reteach if necessary.
homework time in class to be finished as independent practice
to solidify skills and knowledge when students have demonstrated understanding.
traditional to technology
Try this for ideas to Perk Up your Projects:
: How you ask questions has to change... What types of questions will really show what the students are learning instead of what they can find the answer to on the Internet?
Open questions-" Tell us a little about…….."
Closed questions - Asked when the interviewer wants specific information, often factual or technical in nature, these questions can frequently be answered with a “yes” or “no”
Ask for clarification and elaboration of past experiences.
Hypothetical questions-What would you do if…
Leading questions- The answer seems logical…
Multi-barrelled - two or more questions linked to the same topic
Behavioural questions - uses your past experiences to predict future behaviours
