My expectations

My Expectations

  • I wanted to learn how to design a web page.

  • I wanted to incorporate technology into a standards-based lesson.

  • I wanted to learn PowerPoint, Excel, and Netscape Composer.

  • Most importantly, I wanted to share this new learning with my students and peers.

Actual Learning

  • I learned:

  • perseverance

  • how to design a web page using Netscape Composer.

  • incorporate the Internet and computer technology in a lesson.

  • teach basic computer skills to my students.


Successes

Successes

  • My students learned how to access the Internet. They learned how to move between pages, search for topics, save to favorites, use PowerPoint.

  • My students stayed engaged, on task, and focused throughout the lesson.

  • My students learned the computer is a tool to aid learning, and not just a big computer game.

  • I was able to teach my students what I learned.


Shortcomings

Shortcomings

  • Time – It took me a while to figure out how the web site and lesson could work together.Then, the actual implementation took more time than expected.

  • My school does not have a computer lab.

  • I have three computers with Internet access, which obviously makes group lessons difficult.

  • Only three of my students have computers at home.

  • Almost none had ever used the Internet before.

  • Teaching basic computer skills and vocabulary slowed down lessons and projects.


Student data

Student Data

The average pretest score was 45 percent.

The average post-test score was 100 percent.

All students completed the culminating activity.

Revisions

Revisions

  • Each lesson took longer to implement than expected, so some extension activities were deleted.

  • After implementing the lesson, I went back to the teacher page and revised the order of activities.

  • I also redesigned some of the worksheet documents so that they were more kid-friendly.

  • I also revised the family survey questions because there were some parents who had difficulty filling it out.


Closing statements

Closing Statements

  • Using the computer engages all students because it taps into almost all learning styles simultaneously.

  • Using the Internet makes people and places come alive for students.

  • A standards-based lesson focuses instruction.

  • The wealth of easily accessed information on the Internet and the availability of multi-media applications makes using technology a good resource.

  • The biggest hindrance to using technology in the classroom is lack of teacher training and available equipment.

  • I am ready to design another standards- and technology-based lesson.
