I recently found out that my English classes will have a set of dedicated netbooks next school year, which is unbelievably exciting for me. I can’t help but think of all the possibilities for reading and writing when students have frequent and consistent computer access in the classroom.
As I’ve thought about next year, however, I realize that I don’t have a lot of experience in this sort of classroom and that there are a slew of teaching/learning issues and management issues that I haven’t faced yet.
So consider this a call for advice – how do you manage a one-to-one classroom environment? How do you ensure that your students continue to learn effectively in a one-to-one classroom? What issues should I expect to face next year?
Any help you can offer would be much appreciated.
