Teachers' Blog Teachers' Blog

Linked with the webinars organised for the project teachers, this blog will display teachers thoughts, plans, ideas and experience with tablets in classroom. After each webinar, the teachers will write a reflective post on the given topic. Along the course of the project, this blog will provide an interesting insight into day to day teaching with tablets.

What I have learned - Wolfgang Ölzant - SKIHAK Schladming

Questions

Give your response with an explanation and your reasons.

1. What did you find most challenging during the CCL project? 

The most challenging thing was to find out, how to use tablets in a specific secondary school (Topics: economy and working with datasheets, presentations, …) where we have laptop-classes from the 2nd grade on.

Another challenging aspect was given by the number of students: Can I find learning scenarios where I can make use of 10 tablets in a class with 30 students?

2. What was the biggest benefit of participating in the CCL project?

I got some interesting knowledge about how other schools use tablets. I also was confronted with the above mentioned circumstances (10 tablets, 30 students), but these let me find new ideas for lessons. I also liked the idea of the learning cycle and tried to adapt it to my classroom.

3. What have you been able to achieve? What are you most proud of?

At least I managed the challenges and found ways of implementing the tablets in useful ways. This is for me very important, as I am/was very sceptic about the implementation of tablets (because of preferring laptops).

4. How will you take the work forward? How will you disseminate your work to others?

As I see it I will not force the use of tablets. I find them useful when some students have no laptop so they can work with the tablets, but to work “efficiently” and in various ways (research, presentation, image processing, database,…) I think it’s better to have a laptop as a real “working place”. My students also have this opinion – I gathered it by an evaluation on the work with tablets.

But I will go on with the learning scenarios and learning cycle as well as with the new teaching ideas.

To disseminate my/the students work I will prepare a presentation about the work (I have already the video) and post it/make it public via different channels (web, Facebook, ccl). I will also write an article for the homepage and for local newspapers.

5. 2 Top Tips for other teachers 

Above all there are two important things: First is it to really know WHAT do you want to do with the tablets and then have a GOOD look about the technical features and requirements – for instance: docking stations needed? – How to register? – What apps to install? – Who gives support?
