Chromebook implementation in full effect!
We used Chromebooks for the entire class today. I put everything up on Haiku – the warm-up topic, the lesson, the vocabulary (from Vocabulary.com!) and article homework for the week.
I have to admit, it did not go as well as it went last week. First, it was a little disorganized and hard for the students to find the pages I was referring to, which indicates I need to put a little more thought into how to make the navigation a bit more intuitive.
Secondly, I am thinking I will probably have to balance more between using the Chromebooks and having tech-free time to think and process…it took around 30 minutes for the students to figure out what we were doing and enter a simple warm-up response.
Finally, it was very labor-intensive to enter everything. I will have to see if this improves as I continue implementing Chromebooks.
