Technology: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Good
My students and I LOVED using our new Smart Board last week.  I can't say that it will greatly change the way I teach, because I've never been a fan of lecturing or worksheets.  However, I was very impressed at how engaged my students were whenever we used the Smart Board.  I am interested to discover if this engagement continues after the novelty wears off.


Bad
However, I am quickly learning how many ways 22 8-year olds and 1 uncoordinated teacher can unplug or become tangled in the cords running from the projector, laptop, and Smart Board.  Wow!  I now see the huge need for a ceiling mounted projector.

Ugly
Now that I've spent hours adapting my mini lessons for the Smart Board for the next couple of weeks, somehow my laptop case has cracked.  This means that I have to give up my laptop (and all of my new lessons I'm so excited to use) for a couple of weeks to get it fixed.  Oh well, such is technology.
