Using Technology in the Classroom

We see them in almost every class, the students who have no computer skills. Where do you start? Begin with the basics! For the beginner students, it’s important to first teach them the basics of computer use before incorporating the technology into the lesson. Here’s one you might find helpful for your beginner students.

The first lesson is from the Texas Center for Advancement of Literacy and Learning. It is a very basic computer lesson which incorporates using word processing, creating a graph, and homework on price comparison.

The second one is for higher level students.  Although it is not directly about how to use technology it is about technology. It is a lesson that is designed to take more than one class. You can use as much or as little as you like. It is about attitudes towards technology. It includes a survey, discussion, reading, and writing.
