    long dialogue with everyone Also how do you deal with the students in the first week who say I don t know about computers this isn t fair I ll never do well I was too nice to them What do you wish you had known before you started teaching in the computer classroom Back to Other Responses Jill NOT to use the computers on the very first day personally I wait a day or two to get a handle on the class before dealing with technical difficulties log ins etc To allow EXTRA TIME for transitions you can t wrap a daily up in 5 10 minutes so you have to allow the time or leave them out my students first semester felt very rushed all the time and I didn t find out until mid term What do you wish you had known before you started teaching in the computer classroom Back to Other Responses Cara I knew about but wish I was better at accommodating the time element Using the computers printing trouble shooting etc takes a substantial amount of time especially in the beginning of the semester The most helpful thing that was said to me was Remind them that their skill building and knowledge as to usage of these machines is their responsibility Remembering that I was there to teach writing using computers not computer skills helped me explain to them that they needed to work on their own outside of class to master certain things like typing e mailing etc What do you wish you had known before you started teaching in the computer classroom Back to Other Responses Jane Actually I did quite a bit of preparation so I felt like I knew most of what I could know at that point I did have a problem initially teaching my students how to use the e mail because their accounts weren t set up I know someone suggested checking a few of the students logins but perhaps we should also check a couple of e mail accounts in advance if we plan to start using them right away Just going through all of those how to sheets on the Writing Center helped me immensely What do you wish you had known before you started teaching in the computer classroom Back to Other Responses Heather What worked for me get them to use the technology EARLY Teach them about drives some won t know and get them working on their dailies as soon as their log ins work Then get them used to e mail Send a message to the whole class and have them answer you so that you can get the correct e mail addresses for each of them Also pass a sheet around and have those who have holly addresses that they check more often write these down for you Next try the forum I didn t and regret it What do you wish you had known before you started teaching in the computer classroom Back to Other Responses Laurel The only thing I can think of that I would have liked to have known is this I wish someone had prepared me for the utter sense of despair I would feel when my authority was completely snuffed out by technology problems I wish that someone had taught me some calm ways of responding to student questions I didn t know how to answer that I had been given specific detailed info about how to get help in the computer classroom and that I had been told to immediately exploit the knowledge of those computer geeks who invariably grace our classrooms This was all stuff I learned on my own dealing with technology failure and the way it reflects on you as a teacher I wish someone had given me some coping strategies What do you wish you had known before you started teaching in the computer classroom Back to Other Responses Ted Although I knew how to USE the computers for the Daily I hadn t given much thought to how and when I would print and collect it I actually did not collect a Daily until the second week then realized that students probably did not feel a great deal of motivation to do them since they weren t being collected Of course I had some students who would have been very obedient to the end even if I hadn t collected them at all My point is that I think new teachers to the computer classroom should give a lot of thought about how and when how often they will collect the Dailies One final point is that one of the biggest things that has bothered me in the computer classroom is that with 24 students in a circular room I really have no place to stand where I am in the circle and can see everyone s face Also I don t have my own desk or area to put my books and set out handouts before class When we come to the table for discussion I do have students come in closer and sit in the circle with them but when I m showing an overhead or at the whiteboard I feel that I m very far away from those on the other side of the room Also in 227 when I m at the whiteboard I m always blocking someone s view it seems I think a teacher can work around these things but just wanted to bring them up as logistical concerns that may not exist so much in the traditional classroom What will you do differently next time you teach in the computer classroom Christof Karen Jill Cara Jane Brenda Heather What will you do differently next time you teach in the computer classroom Back to Other Responses Christof I ve learned to become less panicky when the computers don t function as expected and to always have a backup plan Also I
