Re: Clasroom technology advice
- Hi James
As I might be in a similar situation soon, I found your advice very useful.
Thanks for sharing!
- Hi James,
Thanks very much for your answer. I absolutely agree that getting just
one or two IWBs would not have been effective, and we have now gone for
each room having a desktop PC and fixed data projector. The PCs will be
networked to the school domain, so our teachers can prepare material on
the staffroom computers then use that material in class; similarly, I
hope that notes or work created on the pc during class can then be saved
for use later, by both teacher and students.
I also hope that a lot of the ideas we covered in a series of insets on
Using Technology in the Classroom last year will now get real take-up by
the teachers who will have the available tools to implement them more
easily. We shall probably have to re-visit some of those ideas once we
are up and running, to prompt that...
We have moved to using CD Players quite smoothly over the last 12 months
(some CD players re-cue tracks better than others it is true), but this
will be the first time that we have classrooms which depend on the PC
'media player' for playing audio tracks - I hope to find that this will
make exploiting all parts of a listening much easier.
Thanks once again,
