Although I want to engage my learners with technology there are a few things I need to know first. I have been out of teaching for a bit and am feeling probably more nervous about the task ahead than the kids are
- I need to know my learners- who are they, what they like, don't like, a bit more of who they are.
- I need to know what they can do- where are they starting with their writing, how they feel about it, how others around them feel about it.
- I would like to have some samples of the writing that they can do so I have an idea of their capabilities.
- I need for the learners to know more about me- how I feel about writing.
- I need like to know what gear I will have at my disposal to use with the kids!
- I need some engaging first activities that will give the kids some success first off.
- I need to know what they want to write about......
Exciting times ahead for us all.
