PLE Week 13

I know that every classroom is different and you never know what you might end up with, but every teacher does have the opportunity to "spice" it up a little bit with whatever they have. Personally, I would have a good laptop that can connect to the internet, because that in and of itself is a huge asset. It allows for so many different programs to play a part in teaching a lesson. If possible, a projector that hooks up to the computer would be ideal. That's probably too much to ask for in a general education classroom right now, but hopefully in the future. In a classroom there are never enough computers. So, even if there are some available, I wish there was a way to have each student with a computer (but only at times desired by the teacher) at their desk. It's not real feasible but it is still possible. A way to get something in to your room when it's not readily available is by networking. Talk to as many people as you can and maybe you will find a hookup to what you need. Writing a formal note to the principal is always a good idea as well.
