Wed, 12 Nov Stoll opinion is obvious, he doesn't feel that the computer in the classroom is necessary. He feels that there are more important issues in the classroom, he maybe right in some instances, and yet wrong in others this is from one perspective of a 4th grade teacher.
For instance, to teach the word processing correctly could take, and most likely takes years. Typing skills need to be taught, some of the mechanics of the program. Spell check, thesaurus, and other proper uses and tricks need to be taught. One day, as Mr. Stoll requires would be that, one full day of nothing else, no math, no social studies, science, forget it.
Yet, I am sure I would have a student or more out of school, that day, and then have to reschedule a special day with just those students. But I know, as well as the rest of you out there, Mr. Stoll is wrong to assume one day is enough for most educational programs. Not if you are to do them justice.
As for the problems he seems to think we have in our schools, "It is often discipline, lack of attention, poor study habits, the unwillingness to sit down Nothing irritates me more is someone who believes school should be non-fun, and a nightmare of experiences.
Just because school was a horrible experience for Mr. Stoll," It was work. It took hours of reading, of thinking, of looking stuff up," his experience doesn't mean we cannot make learning fun and enjoyable.
How many of you really remember the bad things in life, sure you can if you try, but the good and pleasant things that happened to you jump right out, easily remembered. So, the same with learning. I am one of the lucky people in this world, I have 4 computers in my room, and we use them everyday, it makes math, and reading fun to learn Stoll would just hate itthe program, SuccessMaker, allows the students to learn and have fun at the same time, it also allows me as the teacher to monitor and adjust what and how they are learning.
I believe the monies this school district has spent in computers and the software is well worth it!
