Tool #8: Taking a Look at the Tools


Things that I learned about the devices that I will use in the classroom:

1)  The Netbooks’ OS is Windows 7, I have used mostly Windows XP so I will need to go online to find videos that show me how to use Windows 7 so I can take full advantage of its capabilities.

2)  I did not know the photos and videos capabilities that the Netbooks have .  We can use the webcam to record the steps taken to solve problems when students work in small groups and then show it to the entire class.  Other teachers will also be able to see the videos.  

3)   I will have to create an account in iTunes with my district email address in my laptop, and then I will download Apps to my laptop using the iTunes store and sync the Apps to my other devices.

To manage the devices in the classroom I will use the Classroom Management tips found at:  http://www.netbooks.eun.org/web/acer/classroom-management .  With experience and hints from other teachers I will add my own classroom management rules during the school year.
