The students had a lot of fun watching each other talk about the use of technology in their families. Here is a sample of student work:
Students learned to follow 3 rules when going places onine:
- Always ask your parent (or teacher) first
- Only talk to people you know
- Stick to places that are just right for you
They drew pictures of their favorite websites:
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.
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!
The students reviewed what academic means. They learned to use shapes and fill button in Paint to draw quadrilaterals learned in Math class.
Reviewing what it means to be altruistic, the students drew pictures about helping somebody.
The students reviewed what it means to create something aesthetic. They enthusiastically created beautiful Christmas-themed pictures.
