Coach Model Critic www.kidsource.com/kidsource/content2/integrate.computers.html 1. Instructor

When the computer is introduced into the classroom, an initial learning period occurs during which the children need time to become familiar and comfortable with the technology. It is during this period that the teacher needs to assume the most active role in instructing

children, guiding them through new software and encouraging their exploration of the material. 45 www.kidsource.com/kidsource/content2/integrate.computers.html

2. Coach As students gain experience with computers, the focal role held by the teacher gradually diminishes; children are able to perform tasks independently, and peers begin to take over the role of instructor. The teacher then moves into

the role of facilitator, providing guidance and support when needed and ensuring appropriate behaviors, while control of the situation remains in the hands of the child. 46

during whole and small group instruction and for recording stories and producing classroom signs and charts are ways in which the teacher can be a highly visible user of technology. 47

students. In providing a rich, challenging, and appropriate learning environment, teachers must take an active role in selecting the software that will truly enhance children's learning and development.

the teacher - Broad learning outcomes Graeme Oswin 1997 User has control HyperStudio, MicroWorlds, PowerPoint,

Clarisworks, Kid Pix, Office, Web Publishing Software,Email SimCity etc Drill and practice eg Math Blaster and many CD ROMs Technology has control 49

Low expectations of the teacher Narrow learning outcomes 50 Ask Dr. Math Students can ask questions about math problems.

It is fun to read the student questions and see the answers. Try it. You might learn something new. 51 http://mathforum.org/dr.math/dr-math.html
