To meet these goals, I will need resources. I plan to include web 2.0 tools in my reading, science, and Bible classes. My students need access to computers. The school ministry team has been discussing adding a computer to the classroom for student use. Currently, students are not allowed to use teacher laptops. Until I am able to get computers in my classroom. I will use the computer lab during my students' computer time or free lab time. This will require me to collaborate with the computer and library teachers. I will need websites to use with my students that do not require students to use an e-mail address.
I will also need information. I need to know what my students' learning styles and abilities are. Some of this information is found in their records. I can learn the rest of it through surveys and conversations with students. I only have 12 students at a time, so I will be able to have discussions with them. I also need articles to support differentiated instruction wit web 2.0 tools. My hope is to change the current technology policy so students can use an e-mail address to log-in as needed.
So far, I have been able to discuss this plan with the computer teacher. Because of the hurricane that came through, she is struggling to complete work with my students and is unable to give me time during her class. I will need to use the lab during her planning period until December when we can co-teach twice a week.
