This week and next, second grade students are spending time learning how to log on to online resources and use tools that will help them practice skills in math and language arts content areas. Students are gaining experience using laptops and iPads to access resources on shared devices. They are also learning that log on information such as passwords are private and learning the basic procedures of logging off at the end of exploration times. Second graders are using strategies to help them recall their log on information and will have the scaffolded support of password reminder sheets that travel to and from school in their homework folders until their username and password recall is more automatic for them. Students are also being introduced to tools on classroom iPads that will allow them to share their thinking with others and self-reflect on their learning as the school year progresses. In class exploration times allow students to become familiar with capabilities and navigation menus of educational technology tools. It is exciting to watch students gaining confidence and demonstrate leadership skills as they help and coach classmates using Ed. Tech. tools in class.
