Assignment 4

1. Work on project 1

2. Online discussion


Log onto your Blackboard / eLearning space for ICC 523. Look under the DISCUSSIONS tab in the left hand column, and follow instructions to contribute to the Gizmos & Laptops - techno problems in schools discussion of the three newspaper articles:

NY Times article about Liverpool, NY: "Seeing no progress some schools drop laptops"


A Washington Post article about low faculty morale in a high tech school: "A school that's too high on gizmos"


A NY Times article about what studies tell us about outcomes: "Grading the Digital School: In Classroom of Future, Stagnant Scores"

Be sure to comment on specific information in the articles. How does this relate to your own situation?

If you are using an online discusion with your own students, would it be best to use only a single kind of discussion format? Why?
