This week to say the least has been hectic it’s the start of a new quarter. Students are running around and trying to figure out classrooms. Teachers are putting the finishing touches on syllabi’s and trying to make copies, but as always all the copiers are down. Why is it when you need technology most something always seems to go wrong? This quarter, I have six technology classes with 35 students in each class. Yes, you can begin to imagine my stress level. It is a bit difficult to help all students when there is only one of me but, with my sprints around the classroom, I am managing. I know as the quarter progresses things will get a lot better or at least I hope they do.
As a computer instructor it is always interesting to see how students react to computers and software programs. Believe it or not many students are afraid of the computer but, through many trial and errors they are able to surpass their fears. As a class we go over the software programs in depth until all students fully understand all the content being presented. If that means staying after class or meeting on Fridays one on one that’s what I will do to ensure students succeed in technology. It is always a great feeling to see how students at the end of the quarter are quite comfortable with the computer to me this means that I have done a good job in teaching them all about computers and software programs. I feel it is imperative that students really understand technology and the great resources it has to offer. In my opinion in this ever- changing society it is imperative that students become familiar with technology in order to be able to compete in a global society.
