How To Address Negative Student Behavior in 1:1 Classrooms - Edudemic | Newington Professional Reading | Scoop.it
Looking at some negative student behaviors in 1:1 classrooms and how educators at many levels can address the issues.
Sean Corcoran's insight:

"Besides just documenting the positive aspects of using technology, schools also need to be on the lookout for the negatives. It’s still early in the one-to-one era, but a surprising number of schools are simply not prepared for the question of, “What do we do when things aren’t working quite right?” As classrooms change with the addition of technology, we need to celebrate the positives but also realistically deal with the distinct negatives that were not present before."

When To Put The Tech Away In Your 1:1 (or Any) Classroom - Edudemic | Newington Professional Reading | Scoop.it
Beth and Shawn take a look at the often-overlooked question of when to put the tech away in a classroom that has boatloads of electronics everywhere.
Sean Corcoran's insight:

"When I (Shawn) lectured more, it was very easy to end the class knowing that the students had shared a very similar experience together. When devices were added to my classroom, I had no guarantee that would happen. As we worked more individually and in small groups, I realized that I had eroded some of the community that I had prized so highly.  This created tension in the class and left me shaken. I  learned that I had to focus and find ways to build a better community and create shared values in smaller increments of time."
