Students would no longer have to go riffling through folders and binders to try to find a crinkled paper, the document would be on the their iPad ready to go. The students work and other documents would be uploaded to their iCloud so it can always be recovered if anything were to happen to the iPad itself. This makes it easier to not lose anything they had worked on in the past and to be able to find work much quicker. The iPad also allows students to fix errors and mistakes on a paper with a tap of their finger or with spell check, which makes it easier for teachers to read and understand. The student can easily erase or add anything they want to a document meaning no more messy papers and markings.
By applying this study to the use of Google, teachers, parents, and other adults can improve their child’s ability to truly learn by using a wide array of sources on the internet. Parents and teachers who apply these studies teach a child from a young age to appreciate and properly utilize the resources available to them. This combats Carr’s concerns of a loss of critical thinking skills because it supplements one’s critical thinking skills rather than completely overtake them. One can learn to apply everyday experiences to the information they learn on Google. Critical thinking skills are used in finding the application, lesson, and use of information
Just about every class uses one. Math classes use dry erase boards but also smartboards. Smartboards are very helpful they can show videos, pictures, articles and much more.

A article that supports standardized test is “ The Value of Standardized Testing” By Dr. Gail Gross. This article talks about how standardized test makes teacher’s life easier, since it helps them to know in the most effective way on what each student is learning. According to: https://www.huffingtonpost.com/ “Furthermore, the standardized test gives valuable insight into broader issues, such as the standard curriculum important to grade level requirements, and an education reference point for fair and equitable education for all children in all schools”. This means that standardized test helps professor identify what the students are having trouble with and help them to overcome the issue. Another example is “ Moreover, student growth can be a very significant outcome of standardized tests, for though a child may return a low score he may show a growth pattern that is positive”.
The diversity of the group brings out different approaches to confront any math problem. One resource that the teacher could use to make sure cultural diversity is expressed, could be to use teaching strategy websites. It is up to the teacher to make sure students are being taught multicultural lessons. The teacher shows consideration in presenting cultural diversity, by letting the students work in groups. The students can absorb any information from other students who have a diverse cultural background.
In second language learning, using visual aids is a necessity teaching strategy in both English as Second Language (ESL) classroom and English as Foreign Language (EFL) classroom (Allen, Kate & Marquez, 2011). They believed that using visual aids in the process of teaching a foreign language can strengthen what learners have learned and increase their interest. In their article, they proposed the positive impact of using visuals and they concluded that teachers should become aware of the strategies in which they can use visual aids and use them purposefully in the classroom to enhance students’ learning. Visual aids can be defined as using objects, drawings, charts, photographs, videos, multimedia presentation, etc. in the classroom.
This article outlines two main pros and two main cons implementing the use of technology in schools. The first pro is technology being used as a teaching aid. Teachers are using more PowerPoint presentations and other animated software to share the information in an interactive way. Also the use of projectors, screens and speakers allows teachers to teach large group of students at one time. The first con stated in the article is that students find is easier to cheat.
In schools today, many teachers influence Peer-Assisted Learning Strategies (PALS) on their students in various classrooms to show the importance of group work and how working with others can be significantly helpful and also effective towards the improvement of grades. Peer assisted learning strategies have not only shown an improvement in students’ grades in school, but also serve the purpose of helping students learn to listen to others perspectives besides their own, and develop their own voice resulting in an increase in their own self-confidence. Peer-assisted learning strategies were created to serve the needs of those having difficulties in various academics, and are also used to aid English Language learners. These peer-tutoring programs are
The more knowledge a person acquires the more opportunities and doors will open. Homework has good effects on many people such as the student who are learning form it, teachers who are seeing if students are understanding the objective or not and also the parents who can see what their kids are being taught. The more homework Cosumnes River College students are getting is good because homework helps students incorporate learning by relating different skills into one thing, such as book reports or science projects which help students understand and comprehend the course objective; because homework teaches students to take responsibility for their work, while organizing and managing their time wisely; and because it improves the students creative thinking and they develop good study skills to help them in the future. Homework helps students in many ways and it allows students to understand what is being taught to them. Homework is a big part of
For example, use a KWL chart before reading and ask students to write what they know about the topic in the first column and then what they want to learn. This strategy in an efficient way for teachers because it supports them find out what students know before reading (Fogarty, 2007). For activating schema also I suggest to ask students to write something quickly about the topic, to measure their background knowledge about the topic and try to support them make connections between their background knowledge and their personal experience and then they can share information with their colleagues and learn from each other, so students will have input to understand the text better (Tompkins, Literacy for the 21st century, 2006). As I said visuals are very important for visual learners to learn. Indeed, I suggest to use a short video that displays something relates to the topic because students will enjoy watching it and at the same time, they will obtain some input that can scaffold them during while reading stage, according to Wright “Many media and many styles of visual presentation are useful to the language learner.
