was worried that I wouldn't be able to handle any computer technical
difficulties that came up when in the lab.
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.
was afraid that students would spend too much time accessing
inappropriate sites (e.g. Brittany Spears home page).
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.
after reviewing our school's AUP with students, I was concerned about
some students sending inappropriate email messages.
technology teacher suggested using Gaggle.net which is a free
email service for students that allows teachers to monitor and
review students' email.
