Challenges Faced

Challenge Solution
I was worried that I wouldn't be able to handle any computer technical difficulties that came up when in the lab.

I arranged to have the technology teacher in the lab with my class to help with these kinds of problems and to also assist with the teaching of the unit.

I was afraid that students would spend too much time accessing inappropriate sites (e.g. Brittany Spears home page). I reviewed our school's Acceptable Use Policy with students every time we went to the computer lab. I also made sure that they had a clear understanding of what they needed to accomplish during the computer lab time.
Even after reviewing our school's AUP with students, I was concerned about some students sending inappropriate email messages. The technology teacher suggested using which is a free email service for students that allows teachers to monitor and review students' email.
