There are many firewall programs such as Norton and McAfee. Other ways teachers can promote internet safety is to set clear guidelines on what is an expectable internet site to visit. Teachers can also check student’s computer history in order to determine what content students have been looking at. Teachers and parents can also use filtering software to block unacceptable material. Teachers need to encourage their students to practice internet safety at all times.
Children and the Internet Thesis Statement: Research suggests that the internet does make children smarter because it allows children to have higher self confidence, build fine motor and cognitive skills, increase visual memory, and use trial and error to problem solve on their own.

As a future educator, I will definitely use the OER’s I found for this assignment and the other OERs my classmates suggested. I gained mastery because I was able to find resources online that I could use and the best part was that they were absolutely

Multiple literacy appeals to me because I see this type of literacy was formed because of our current society today. Every year students bring into the classroom their different cultural backgrounds and academic experiences, to which the teacher must find a way to accommodate each student's learning style. Multiple literacy reminds me a lot of progressive education.
Though Mr. Gagne’s research dates well before computer integrated education, it is still a valuable resource. As teachers we need to capture our student’s attention and create engaged learners and this can be accomplished by reminding our students as to what they have already learned, present new information and allow them to practice what they have learned while being able to share this information with their classmates. Using educational technology resources allows this once intimidating task to become simplified. I found that there are resources to stimulate a students learning and can be accessed easily via the Internet. In one of our class discussions, we researched website and have found that teachers are able to organize their lesson plans by compiling and classify these tools based on the i... ... middle of paper ... ...maintain the notecards online, share them with fellow students and track their progress.
The use of technology has the ability to allow teachers to teach the student, instead of teaching the grade level. Jon Bower, CEO of Lexia Learning Systems, points this fact out when he states, "Technology has a crucial role to play in our schools. Unfortunately, it has little to do with the integrated learning systems, Internet access and technology courses that are usually provided to our children. In fact, most independent studies of the effects of those additions during the last 10 years can't find any. The best role of technology in our schools is to help our children's teachers and administrators do their jobs better.
This document is to equip a teacher with some resources that will benefit them in the classroom. The educational helper site gives educators work sheets and many other things at a click of their mouse. A resource to help students comprehend the lessons is found in the article More Ways to Make Sure Students in Your Classes Understand You, written by Alex Case. A third resource is character building and teaches teachers “trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship” (Josephson, 2011). And lastly a resource that is much needed is on bullying.
I will discuss the following questions as well as give feedback regarding my findings after reviewing several classrooms in the Riverside Unified School District. Introduction While there are many definitions of "constructivism," most educators would agree that constructivist practices involve teachers facilitating students who engage in activities that garner their interest and build on their experiences. These practices also offer opportunities for higher-order thinking that routinely take students beyond finding and reporting facts to forming and defending opinions and solving open-ended problems. Being that I am a Riverside Unified School District Computer Education teacher, I was chosen to be a part of a technology study team, headed by our Instructional Technology Specialist, Jay McPhail. Our objective was to see if well-supported Internet access changes practice in constructivist directions.
This statement supports the claim that technology enhances the learning process of the student. Technology also helps in teaching students to be independent because they are more likely to use a computer to search
This will help build a community within the classroom and help my students to learn better. I will also work on my non-verbal communication because that is a key point while working with ELs. Since they may not know the language, you have to rely on non-verbal communication to get the point across such as a pat on the shoulder or a thumbs up. Non-verbal communication will help me learn about my EL student or students. Another way this will affect my decisions I will make as a teacher is be there to help the children, learn from your coworkers because they are there to help you.
