Technology Helps Our Families

Quarter 1 was dedicated to introduction to technology. The students learned what ICT stands for. We talked about what kinds of technology at home are ICT and which aren’t. Then the students had to think of examples of technology that helps their families. They used those in their first PowerPoint presentation ever. The students created a presentation “Technology Helps My Family” about 3 technologies that their family uses. They inserted online pictures of technology and wrote how each technology helps their family.

After the break, the students will save their Power Point presentations directly in a One Drive folder shared by the teacher and talk in front of the class about their presentation.

Beginning the School Year in ICT

In ICT, the students learned how to be independent while regulating their behavior. They know the appropriate behaviors displayed on our Independence chart:

      Be quiet

 

      Keep your voice down

 

      Ignore distractions

 

      Work all the time

 

      Stay in one spot

 

    Raise your hand and call Ms. Anna if you need help

I asked students to show first the incorrect behaviors and then the correct ones. The students proved they can behave. However, as you can see, they really enjoyed showing the incorrect behaviors!
