Not all students in the same classroom have the same abilities or learning styles. It may take some time for some students to catch up on a subject while others catch on quickly. Teachers need to make accommodations for those students. If students need extra help understanding something, teachers should take some time for those students. I'm currently observing a classroom in which there are some students with learning disabilities. The teacher takes time to review what the students don't understand while the other students are working. Teachers should make themselves available for any additional help that students may need.

There are many different reasons why students need to learn at a young age how to use computers. Now-a-days many people are communicating online. People send each other e-mails to keep in touch or just to say hi. Computers are also used for educational purposes. At the younger grade levels students use the computer to play different games. As students get older they may use the computer to work on research papers or to just to search something up. If students are not taught how to use the computer, how would they know where to research different things at?? Computers are used for many reasons and students need to learn how to use a computer. Learning about computers also give students a chance to know where to go and where not to go...like clicking on pop-ups and stuff like that.

Blogs can be used for many different reasons. This blog will be used for educational purposes. One reason this blog will be used for is for discussions. Student assignments and projects will be posted for the students. Students will have the chance to post any comments or questions that they may have about any assignments. This also gives students the chance to ask each other questions and make any comments about any of the discussions posted up.
