In an article published in 2015 it says “When learning, applying for a job position or going to a University, reading PDFs and manuals can be mandatory. For this reason, applications like the Kindle allow us to read books and manuals from anywhere.” “Many teachers often include news articles as part of their teaching methods (for example, in Economics). With an endless amount of news gathering mobile applications, you can bring news and current affairs into the classroom in an instant”(Leyden). Therefore, students homework will be turned in on time and they can access their homework or reading assignment from
Students can click on any landmark to learn more about the landmark and see photographs of each place. I would use this as an interactive extension, as well as a computer lab activity for a day. Students would take notes over the landmarks they saw and learned about and refer back to their notes when they create their final unit project. It can be accessed here:
Maryville Christian School offers a tutoring program called Students Helping Others Progress (SHOP). The student-led organization meets every Tuesday after school from 3:15 - 4:00. SHOP uses peer tutoring tactics very useful for all children. The goal for this paper is to explain the impact that peer tutoring has and to inspire other schools to open an after school tutoring organization. Peer Tutoring is the style of teaching that is one on one.
Karen .L Murphy is an assistant professor of early childhood education department at Wheelock College in Boston, Massachusetts. She has a PH.D degree on early childhood studies and teaches courses in educational technology in local schools and programs. In her article, she introduced some of the broader issues around using technology with young children. Then, she describes practices some students used to meaningfully incorporate technology into the integrated science curriculum they developed. Karen uses many examples
According to Faculty of Education at University of Cambridge, dialogic teaching is a way of teaching where talk is an effective way to carry out teaching and learning. It involves ongoing talk between two parties; the teacher and the students. In early 2000s, Robin Alexander developed this type of learning. Dialogical teaching helps teacher to discover students’ needs, assess their progress and so on. Dialogic teaching offers an interaction; which is between not only teacher and students; it could be between student and student.
The class on this day had the 23 students and the teacher present. During my observation I was able to observe the classroom environment during the science experiment, teacher-student interactions, and science process skills. During my observation I was also able to learn a lot of strategies to teach science. For example, my host teacher asked a lot of questions, and even if the students answer the question correct the teacher kept asking more open-ended question. Also, I noticed the teacher used a lot of science vocabulary words such as, collecting data, observation, prediction,
Some schools have their teachers communicate through online media services (Cox 2014). There are several online journals that inform individuals’ roles in technology play within their workplace. Technology is used to help educators to teach children with disabilities. Tablets are being used to help children with autism to learn (Bozic and Dunlap 2013). Technology is going to grow in the future and educators are going to have to be able to adapt (Ritz and Bevins 2012).

However, an internet conenction and a computer is still required to use those sites. Some of these sites offer lectures about Science, Technology, Electronics, and Math (STEM) to all students. Learning such classes will help third world students bridge the digital divide gap. Conclusion This paper presented digital divide definitions and the role of education in it. Also, some normal and learning solutions were offered to overcome the digital divide.
Every other Wednesday morning, staff have an hour and a half AIG certification training that takes staff through modules of readings, assignments, and in person discussions during the meetings. I am able to be a part of this training and work with my grade level team to learn the content and apply it through assignments, such as creating an activity choice board for students that have already mastered the required content. The next steps that I would take would be to continually look for ways to apply the content in the classroom and to share these ideas and lessons with other teachers. Though the training was thorough and provided a lot of helpful information, it is up to the classroom teacher to then find ways to apply these tools in the classroom in practical ways. In the classroom that I am currently placed in, the group of students that are identified as AIG are reading at a much higher level than their peers and need more complex content to challenge them.
