Most of us felt that our students are somewhat technologically ready for classwork like this video; however, it is impossible for us to instruct, monitor, and engage due to the lack of proper equipment in our classrooms. Currently we are limited to only one Chromebook, one desktop, and one data projector per teacher and a Chromebook for every student. These are basic devices, and anything above and beyond them can only exist in our wishlist. We felt that we have made good use of whatever we have inside our classrooms.
To many, the appeal of taking online classes stems from the idea that online school is simple or requires less effort than traditional schools. However, this is hardly ever true. Online classes are often just as difficult if not more difficult than a traditional class. When enrolled in an online school you are more than likely to feel overwhelmed or stressed. While online schools can be challenging at times, there are ways to help manage your school work and your life.
Social media has a huge impact on school performance. Teenagers are not concentrating in class to their full potential. Students typically prefer to chat on social media for hours. This is a waste of time as they could have been studying, doing homework or playing outside. Children’s handwriting is not as good as it should be as they spend more time typing on keyboards than writing with a pen on paper.
The reason for this is because of my score on the ACT. Nowadays, colleges are so dependent on the ACT that getting an equal chance at college in nearly impossible for students that are horrible at standardized testing. Also, the ACT has the most unrealistic time limit in order to complete each portion of the test. Lastly, it seems as though the test makers do not understand that not all children have the privilege of having wonderful learning and living environments at home to help them excel in school. These reasons show that the ACT does not fairly reflect the knowledge, educational determination, and ability of the students to succeed in taking this test.
My first reason is that online class prevents students to interact face to face with other students. It is harder to get to meet our classmates in a class because we do not know who they are. Secondly, online class does not allow students to begin a friendship. Many times we begin a friendship due to something that bring us together such as a class. Finally, online class cannot enjoy learning directly from the instructor.
He usually had “no” as a response; but the teachers that were asked the question really do not see the DVD players, recorders, cameras, and other electronic devices as technology. It is because that when the word “technology” came up, they probably thought that Donohue was referring to a computer or an iPad (¨Technology Can Benefit Young Children¨). It really is almost the same except that the technology had furthered on into more advances and power, making it all different for the teachers who prefer the traditional teaching style than a way that has to do with technology. This is a big leap for some teachers, but
I am truly missing the visible presence of peers, school mates, class mates, study groups and instructors who can be easily contacted for help when the need arises. 2. As an independent self-motivated learner, I do not have a network of people in my life that I can count on for help. In conventional classroom learning, students have a network of people in their lives to offer assistance in case of difficulties. All these are missing in an independent self-motivated
It is well known that students of elementary schools are nothing more than young children, which means that it is difficult to trust them. At the same time it also depends on the teachers to accept computers as a medium to teaching their students. When I was in elementary school, I remember using just books. Computers had not yet been adapted to schools. It is a fact that most teachers could not even handle a computer and I guess this is another reason why computers were so late to be used in elementary education in my country.
Most of the mathematic games in the market is to bring up the mathematical ability but not to improve the knowledge of mathematic itself, so the improvement of the school result is not directly. Hence it is hard for schools to adopt. It is hard to change the concept of playing games is bad for regularly study. People think that achievements are reached by hard work rather than recreation. So that the development and the study in mathematical computer games are blocked.
Students continue committing academic dishonesty because they think their teachers would not use the internet to verify their work (2007). Nowadays, when almost every student has access to the web, there is no wonder why teachers use PDS. For instance, schools buy license to use Turnitin, an online PDS created by the American company iParadigms, LCC. After comparing eleven commercial PDS for Britain’s Joint Information Systems Committee, Scaife (2007) came up with the following classifications of electronic plagiarism detection based on the mechanism of checking plagiarism: 1) PDS that verifies against major Internet search engines, 2) PDS that compares within a batch of documents, 3) PDS that are educational products that offers compilation of student submission, and 4) PDS that are non standard products. In addition, the evaluation result shows that Turnitin, which uses a combination of the first three PDS classifications, is the most trusted
