“It’s OK” “Everyone is at some stage on the path of technology awareness. Identify the stages represented in your audience and be prepared to address each stage. Attempt to determine this through observation, conference, or interview. It is important to remember — and possibly to even convey to the audience — that wherever one is, it is ok. ” (Edvancenet Consortium http: //www. edvancenet. org/ )

Rationale for Helping Teachers and Students Get Into, Through, and Beyond the Computer Lab
“Show Me The …. ” • Barry Bakin, a recognized ESL/technology authority, says that students’ acquisition of technology skills contributes to the students’, teachers’, and schools’ economic success, because it increases students’ employability, program attendance, and CASAS benchmarks. He also says using technology makes him a better teacher.
More Rationale For Teachers and Students • Background reading in back section of my online handout for you to read later at the web site – if money wasn’t a big enough incentive!

Into • Begin planning with the end in mind. • Think about how you can use the computer to improve your lesson. • Look at what other teacher’s have done. • Do a student-needs assessment (p 4). • Prep them and Pair them up. • http: //www. otan. us/members/index. cfm? fu seaction=view_ft&recno=2465&catid=181 03&type=2 + Santa Ana material • .
Start with a Victory • Start simple. • Show them a page from software such as All Star, Oxford Picture Dictionary, Side by Side, Pronunciation Power etc. and/or sites. • (I’ll show you some now if possible, but plan for the impossible.

Student Made Projects • Computer projects which are based on ESL principles such as: • Communicative Theory • Constructivism • Content-Based Instructions • Project-Based Learning • Often use Microsoft Office for stories, resumes, presentations (p. 30 -45)
Examples of Projects • • • Reports & Stories Webquests (45 -52) Resumes Power. Point Presentations Graphs
Student Sample • Show class a finished product from another semester, a different teacher, or the Internet. My name is Norma _____ and I was born in Tijuana, Mexico. I have a big family. I have two stepsisters, one stepbrother and a lot of cousins. When I was a child, I felt very good about school. • (She later used this information to make a PPP. )

Directing Students • Some Teachers prefer to give directions through teacher dictations • Realistic Listening Practice • Realistic Note Writing Practice • Makes Students Accountable
Others Use Print Screen Directions “Dumbies” Style • • Good for low levels Good for late students Good for insecure/new to computers Ss Great for labs
Example of Print Screen Directions • Do with students in class first. • Use “covering” technique to follow more easily. • Look in my handout on page 16 for directions on how to make these directions.
Through • What will the students do at the lab? • Fill in checklists and/or work collaboratively on projects that may last all class or all semester
What will you do in lab? • Act as a coach and facilitator • Identify students who can help you and other students • Work more one-on-one with students
Beyond • Check what they’ve learned/test • Apply what they’ve learned/more practice • Extend/present projects in class
What did you learn today? • • • Reviewed Rationale for TELL Became familiar with software, sites, possibilities Learned about extra resources for students Learned about print screen directions ?
That’s All Folks! • Do Your Evaluation. • Enjoy Your Lunch! https: //www. youtube. com/watch? v=E 12 yki hv. CHk
