Currently, technology is a big part of my adult education classroom. We currently have Cavas in place for the students to see what work we have throughout the semester, their grades, and an online resource if we are forced to be remote. We use online programs every class to further our learning experience after our in person lecture and lessons. My students work on programs like i-Pathways or New Readers Press to further their learning after we have discussed these topics. Students all either have Chromebooks or are able to borrow a laptop during class time. If students are struggling with these programs, we work together to come up with a solution to the problem.
Actually, technology is an important part ofclassroom. I always use power point to make them visualize what I want to teach them. We usually use myenglishlab and phone app which are complementing our lessons from the textbook.
Technology is an important aspect of education and everyone needs access to the internet do one thing or another. I’ve found that while some students are new to using technology, even if they own a smartphone, they are willing and open to learn how to use it to learn. As with anything, there are some students more comfortable and experienced with technology than others. I’ve sometimes have had, or it has spontaneously occurred, one student assist another student with learning how to use a particular application or digital tool or to set up an account. This is a very collaborative process and both students get to make sense of the digital tools together as one explains and one learns.
