Respond to each scenario and number your responses accordingly:
Scenario 1: Mrs. Dominquez is an avid believer in the use of technology in the classroom. She allows her students to have their cell phones out on their desks. She encourages them to use their cell phones as a resource for research but often finds the students are using their cell phones in non-educational ways. How would you monitor the use of students using their cell phones to ensure it is for educational purposes only?
Scenario 2: Mr. Thompson spends the first five minutes of class taking roll. She often has to yell at the students to be quiet because she cannot hear students reply to their names being called. Some days it takes longer due to interruptions from the students asking permission to go to the restroom or because she is trying to control unruly students. How can Mr. Thompson use technology to engage his students while he takes roll?
Scenario 3: Mrs. Barrera is so frustrated with the lack of motivation in her students. She feels if she just assigns the students a chapter to read and has them answer the questions at the end of the chapter, the students should be able to complete the assignment. Fifty percent of her students are currently near failing her course. What can Mrs. Barrera do differently in her classroom to engage her students? How can she use technology to engage her students in reading and completing assignments?
