Assignment 1

Think back to a successful lesson that took place at your library/community center/school.

What kind of new technology did you use to (for example) gain information, prepare assignments, or gather materials? Fill out the form according to the outline:

  1. purpose and topic
  2. technology used
  3. why I decided to use those tools
  4. pluses and minuses of these tools


If you didn’t use any technology in your lessons, use an example without it, but take some time to think about what tools would have been useful or beneficial.


Discussion questions:

  1. What brings you the most satisfaction at work? What methods do you use to motivate yourself?
  2. Is technology a threat to schooling? Should students make use of smartphones and tablets during lessons?
