Class updates & news
We will be busy working on projects and essays in English class. When working between home and school on these activities, there may be several technological issues with computers between school and home use. First, access to computer labs at school is very limited due to the many teachers using the labs. Often, I can only get in one or two days, and that is not enough time for the students to complete their work. Secondly, we have discovered that using flash drives and e-mail is great, however, documents and projects do not always open on the computers at school because our software is not up-to-date. Therefore, I believe I have a solution, which will work for students who have internet access. Students will be creating a gmail account. Within this account, they can create word documents and power points, which will be stored online and can be accessed anywhere the student has internet. They won't have to worry about having the software that is compatible with school's, nor will they have to convert documents. Additionally, if a group of students is working on a project, they can all collaborate on that project at the same time even if they are at their own homes. There are many exciting educational opportunities within gmail, and I look forward to incorporating this technology into the English classroom! If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me so we can discuss this.
