Teachers need help in managing students with only one or few computers available in their classrooms. Some strategies that you can offer your teachers:

  • Create multiple activities with stations. Consider small groups of students rotating through the stations for a limited time doing research: one station with reference books, another with library books, another the computer for Internet research, and another magazines.
  • Use the computer as a print station.
  • Connect the computer to a projector or large TV monitor for presentations.
  • Create a website with directions and links to resources and have students rotate through following the directions. Include a hard copy of the information so students are prepared before they get to the computer.
  • Extend the computer with resources such as the AlphaSmarts or Dreamwriter
