(9) Solving problems. The student uses technology applications to facilitate evaluation of work, both process and product.

(B) use software features, such as slide show previews, to evaluate final product.

  • Activity 5: Students will demonstrate fun activities that help them remain fit. They will take turns recording or taking pictures of these activities, and putting the picture or the video into a PowerPoint presentation. Presentation must be reviewed first.
adaptations for lessons one five
Adaptations For Lessons One-Five
  • In lesson one advanced students can also try instant messaging.

Lower level students can use a handout with step by step instructions. If the student is not able to type they can record their message.

  • In lesson two advanced students can focus on researching on the internet and their graphs can include all relevant labels.

Lower level students can watch the video for research and their graph can be a pictograph.

  • In lesson three advanced students can use Kidspiration and try Inspiration and also their search can be more specific.

Lower level students can focus on Kidspiration and their search should be more general.

AdaptationsFor Lessons One-Five (Continued)
  • In lesson four advanced students can insert a picture of their family member their writing about.

Lower level students can type up the information as a Word document and focus on learning to use the tools that help them proof-read their document.

  • In lesson five advanced students can edit the pictures or add borders to the pictures.

Lower level students can be in charge of explaining the activities if they are not physically able to perform the movements.

management roles location and special considerations for lessons one five
Management, roles, location, and special considerations for lessons one-five
  • During the activities the students will be in the computer lab. The students should be monitored by the teacher and two parent assistants. The assistants will help keep the students on task, and will be there to help instruct students and demonstrate how to use e-mail, Excel, Kidspiration, Word, and how to use the cameras. The learners role is to learn how to use the software, selected tools and stay on task. Teachers need to consider the fact that students could possible begin to search the internet, so they must be monitored closely and have reviewed all rules ahead of time. Another consideration is that all students may not understand the software immediately so there must be enough help for all students. When doing physical activities parents must be notified so if there are any health problems you will know ahead of time. Digital cameras could also be easy to break if dropped. The student should be informed on how to use all technology tools properly. Any students that misuse the computer will be asked to leave the computer.
websites essential for this unit
Websites Essential For This Unit

This website is a teacher resource. The teacher can use this site to find out information about being physically fit before starting the lesson. This site has article, exercise videos for kids, activities they can do, kids exercise chart, and a food pyramid for kids.


This site can be used to give ideas to add into the lesson, it’s good for pre-teaching. This is a fitness unit done by another teacher.


This site could be used by the teacher or the student. There are list of fitness games that kids can play. When the kids present an activity they can get ideas from this site. Or the teacher could have them play some of these games.

Websites Essential For This Unit (continued)

-This site is for kids, parents, and teens. As they research they can go to this site. It provides them with articles about their health, healthy recipes kids love, and they can play interactive games about their body.

-Also teachers can use this site to help develop a newsletter. This site has articles about developments of kids, and how the parents can keep their kids healthy.


This link is part of the site above it just goes directly to the links for kids.

technology tools
Technology Tools
  • DVD player-The students can use the DVD player while they are watching the video on health and fitness.
  • Digital Camera-The students can use the digital camera to take picture of themselves playing games that promote fitness. They can then have them inserted into PowerPoint.
  • Camcorder–The teacher can record the students being physically active. This could be used for assessment purposes.
the impact of this unit
The Impact of This Unit
  • This fitness unit will impact the quality of available technology. Fitness is something that can be meaningful to the kids. When learning about this topic technology is integrated and not just tacked on top of the lesson. The students are able to use the technology in a meaningful way. The graphs are a visual for the students to help them understand the statistics. Inserting family pictures helps them feel good about themselves and their family, and learning to type and send e-mails is going to be very useful to their future.
alternatives to failed technology
Alternatives To Failed Technology
  • If the selected technology fails on the day of the assignment there are alternatives. When using technology there must be a backup plan. For the on-line research assignments you should supply a numerous amount of books that the kids could look through for research. Instead of taking digital pictures the kids could draw a layout of the activity with the instructions on the back. The students could talk to a partner or hand write a journal of their thoughts. They could draw graphs on butcher paper.
technology modifications
Technology Modifications
  • If there is only one computer the class can be set up in centers. There will be four to six in a group that will rotate. For example a group can do book research while the other group does computer research or is beginning to type their journals, or make graphs.
  • My ideal technology setting would be to have enough computers in my classroom for each student. That way they could use the computer whenever it fit with an assignment, this would be real integration. They could type an assignment instead of writing it or they could send me and e-mail if they had a question. It would also be nice if I had enough digital cameras to loan out to students. This way they would be able to take pictures and it wouldn’t take away from class time.
addressing the different types of technology
Addressing the Different Types of Technology?
  • This unit addresses technology in three ways. It addresses technology as a subject. This is done in lesson one by introducing the students to e-mail. Typing an e-mail is the main focus of their learning. In lesson three Kidspiration is used to get the facts across. This method is using technology as content delivery. In lesson two technology is used as a lesson support. The students are focusing on collecting and sorting data. Making a table or graph is another alternative to add to this lesson.
addresses the engauge 21st century skills
Addresses The enGauge 21st Century Skills
  • In lesson four the student are using Digital-Age Literacy by learning to form a table in MicrosoftWord this helps them become technology literate.
  • The children can be introduced to Inventive Thinking in lesson two. They will be conducting their own research and come to their own conclusion about how to be healthy based on their findings.
  • In lesson five the students will be using Effective Communication. They will have to interact with peers, and develop interpersonal skills to come up with fun activities with their group to get their heart rate up.
