One Computer Classroom
• This slideshow will
give effective ways to
use one computer in a
classroom.
The single computer can be
used:
• During “free time”
• For cooperative group
projects
• As a research station
• As a learning station
• As a presentation center
• As a data collection station
• As a statistical analysis
station
• As a publishing center
** As a presentation device to support your
teaching.
** Connect the computer to a television or
computer projection system so that it can
be viewed by all students.
• Have the computer connected to a television
or projector, using the computer as a
presentation device is a great way to
integrate technology.
• During a science unit students can use the
computer for statistical analysis.
• When studying a certain topic students may
use the computer to collect or analyze data
that they have recorded.
• Locate the presentation center in an area of
low traffic, and away from direct sunlight.
• Make sure that all students can see the
screen in which your presentation is
displayed.
• Also make sure that you can see your
students while you are conducting your
presentation.
• When using the computer as a learning
station make sure that it is used to support
and enhance what you are teaching.
• It is important to rotate students through the
center so that all get experience with the
technology.
Students can find answers to their
questions by using…
•
•
•
•
Multimedia encyclopedias
Dictionary software
Spreadsheets
Internet access
Idea for a reference center
• Challenge students to find a fact of the day
• Each day give a different student 5 min of
research time and then time to share
information with the class
• Topics can be assigned or chosen by the
students
Idea for a Group Project
• Assign a group project where one group uses the
computer to locate information and other groups
use more “traditional” means of research
• Compare and contrast methods and results of
research between groups to see which is better
• Computer access must be divided fairly from one
project to another
Idea for a writing lesson
• Have the class write a story together
• Allow each student a chance to visit the computer
to add to a group document
• The student must read what was written
previously and then add to the story
• This idea can also be altered to use for a class
review sheet where each student adds a fact about
the unit and each student in the class receives the
list of facts to study
• Using the computer to perform
internet searches and/or display
results of searches.
• Use multimedia encyclopedias and
other resources as reference
materials.
• Use a presentation program to
present key concepts and thoughts.
