The realization of strengthening a student's research skills is imperative before asking them to do research.

It seems like the curriculum for many courses just continues to grow. Our students require more training on things that were never considered in the past yet our time for teaching these ideas stays the same. Students need the skills to research and use google the right way, but who does this? When? Do we need classes that focus on only these types of skills or should we just blend this with what we are already doing.

Great things to point out for not only using technology, but having the students learn the how's and why's of what they need to do to bring in more depth.

Question 4 mentions the use of an authentic audience for student writing. I think this is a really important concept for students, and it actually increases their levels of seriousness and productivity. I have tried to develop collaborations with students from other countries, but I have found it to be difficult due to time changes around the world and technology difficulties. It can be a challenge, but it is worth it when it works. I would like to do more with this within our own district where maybe high school students become an audience for elementary students.

The level of the class will determine the audience.

There are pros and cons about 1:1, but the technology should not replace the teacher-student experience. Students should not sit all day, every day in front of a computer in every class. There should be limitations and understandings from both the teachers and the students.

Appropriate use of the technology is vitally important in this case. This is not just a use of social media, or in my case a way to use a translator to avoid practice of literacy in the language.



Comment on Why Do Students Pick Teacher A or Teacher B? Who Would You Pick? by Karen Taylor

I would say in the lower levels of the language I am more of the A teacher, and more of teacher B in the honors level classes.

# 5-6 are particularly difficult, as the students do not possess the vocabulary necessary for these skills.

Once again the problem solving is not the issue, it is having the vocabulary in the language to express oneself in the language.
