Ahhh Finally

I am a bit slow on the uptake but I finally got to the page where I could post a message. My concern with all this wonderful information is that I will be unable to provide access to it for my students. We have one computer lab for 1100 students and most do not have their own computers...any suggestions?



I am finding that the blog is actually not an easily navigated site/tool. Do you find that you need a training time for your students?





Today 10/21/05

The search for the Truth is more important then its possession. (Lessing)


Testing: making a post

Just exploring... nice colours


This is great!

I hope students will be as excited about this as I am.



The possibilities for this technology are very interesting. I do wonder about the the logistics of operating of blog with students in a school where technology is very limited. Any thoughts?


Wish the better computer labs were available to my classes

I'm really liking this idea of getting my students to get blog-savvy and perhaps interact and synthesize the information from the day's lesson. However, I don't often have much time to get on the web myself, let alone some of my students. But it's a good way to post the java applets that they could view to get a better understanding of some of the concepts.

Unfortunately, my room is in the tech-knowledgeless part of the school so I haven't been able to show them in the classroom. And even worse than that, the only computer labs available during my classes are the old computers which don't support java applets. So I'm frustrated with my inability to get technology into my lessons. Perhaps this is the only way. If I can find only find the time ...



I'm a blogger


High Level

Looking at the blogs that are already on line in this particular blog the students all seem to be in PreCalc or Applied. The students appear to put a lot of effort into their posts. I like the review of the lessons that they are providing. I'm just wondering if Consumer students would be able to provide the same level of detail. It seems a fairly painless way for non-attenders to catch up on notes that they have missed.
