My students are free to work in the computer lab (room next door) as long as they are working on GED stuff.  There are great math sites.   But the truth is they stay in the classroom for study buddies or direct help.   Tonight I am giving a writing assignment and giving them the choice of paper and pencil or the computer.   No doubt our younger students are very "into" all the tech stuff.  Cell phones seem to be glued to their hands.  It is a must for our students that are going to college to get some computer knowledge before they move on.  Sometimes we have to meet them on their level.  This was a wakeup call for me to spend more time in the computer lab.  Thanks

What a great resource Pam. In our program, we have a line on our registration form that asks for the student's email address. We will communicate with the students that way to save on stamps. We send flyers and reminders about breaks etc... We have a few students who are not comfortable with the computer and are vocal about it. I try and put them on microsoft digital literacy. It's free and there are 3 levels to the curriculum: Basic, Standard and Advanced. Each level has it's own assessment and if they pass, a certificate is generated and they can print it off and put with their resume or other certificates they may have. I have only used it a few times because most of my students are not vocal about their lack of computer literacy. The only students who seem to mention it are the ones who need proof for a specific educational program.

Since our classroom is in the resource center, we set up our students with email accounts and encourage them to take part in our computer classes held here.

It's hard to believe we are discussing the last of the 8 Developing Writers workshops. Tawna raises important "hurdles" about technology in ABLE, namely equipment (hardware and software), time, and levels of student knowledge. Have any of you found, as Tawna did, that many students have never used email? The Southwest Resource center recently did a survey of technology use in our classrooms - it will be interesting to review the results and try to determine what can be done (from state level on down) to address the gaps.

Teacher Talk- April 7

Integrating technology in the classroom can be a challenge. I know preparing our students for writing in the 21st century is important but the barriers can slow the progress of the integration. Time, money, and equipment present hurdles that have to be overcome. As teachers we will need to think outside the box and create writing lessons that will improve the academic realm of writing as well as learning technology. The computer presents the most obvious choice for lessons. I developed a lesson that looked at email etiquette and then had students respond to a teacher generated office memo email. Students had to access the email account, read the memo, and then reply to the memo using the etiquette rules we had discussed. For many, this was a first experience using email.

I liked the lesson and thought it was very worthwhile. The students were engaged in learning at each step. Nevertheless, I did discover that the lesson took much longer than I had anticipated and I will need to remember that as I begin to intertwine technology and writing in the class time that has been set up for writing instruction.  Just another examination of the saying ? so much to do ?.so little time?.?
