How often do you use compters in the classroom? And for what purpose? I would love to hear of ways you may have successfully (or unsuccesssfully) incorporated technological innovations into your classroom or a lesson plan.
How often are computers needed to complete the homework you assign?
Do you think the increased recreational use of computers has affected your students in a positive or negative way, or both?
Do you think your students have become better writers and/or communicators, because of the increased use of the written word via bloggs, IMs, email, role-play, ect.?
If you have been teaching long enough to remember how things were before the internet explosion, what do you think of the changes? Both positives and/or negatives?
I would appreciate a little background such as what age you teach, what subject and how long you have been teaching as well as any additional information that you feel comfortable sharing.
What role does the computer (and all it's various uses) play in your non-teaching life? What do you use it for?
