Region 10 Technology Academy Blog

Welcome to the Region 10 Technology Academy! The purpose of this blog [short for web log] is to introduce you to a new type of publishing that has taken media, education, and politics by storm. In our brief activity, we will use this blog to demonstrate how groups and individuals can publish their thoughts, dreams, and visions of technology to a wider audience via the Internet. We hope you enjoy this experience!

Sincerely,
The Region 10 Technology Academy Team

Challenge #1

You are at a school where you move up with your students, and this is the beginning of the second year with the same group of students. Last year, student behavior was a yearlong issue. Any time you incorporated technology, something always got broken by the students or an important component of the machinery was lost. Last year you helped to win a grant for laptop computers which arrived at the start of this year. Your principal has decided that you should be the one to house and use the new laptops. Having had a bad history with these students, you are anxious to bring in brand new laptops to your class. How would you address this challenge?

1. Inform students we have been chosen to be in charge of the laptops. This is a speical recognition for this class.
2. Group Discussion on handling laptops. Creating Do & Do Not Posters.
3. Select class monitor(s) based on responsible behavior. They would get training to set up/maintain cart.
4. A letter will be sent to students parents to be signed by both students and parent. Included would be the list of consequences for inappropriate behavior.
This could range from loosing computer privilges for the day all the way to having parent coming in for a conference.
5. If the group behaves well they will receive extra compter time of their choice.

Before i could bring in the new laptops, i would have to hold a special session for the students on how to handle the equipment. I would also work with students in groups to give each of them a chance to use the computers.
