Steve Jobs; Class discussion

Steve jobs was a true genius, the only person that comes to mind when comparing him to anyone is Edison. This week I led a class discussion about the man and his legacy. At first, my students seemed annoyed with the prospect of not going right into the project of the day, but after simply asking “who has an iPod?” they were hooked.

It is hard to imagine where the world would be without his inspiration. In class, we viewed a story from CNN about his life. To my surprise, my students ages 11-15 were glued to the story, and really great discussions followed in all my classes.

Where will the future of technology go now? Where could it have gone if he had another 10 years??? What is the next iPod? iPad? Now?

Often, for one reason or another teachers are forced into teaching technology for the first time. Teachers are moved from subject to subject without much notice. This leaves professionals who are accustomed to being an expert in their field at a loss.

When I first started teaching a computer class, I had nothing (apple II’s) then upgraded to a pc lab with only Office, the internet and no materials.

This class book would have been perfect to get me started, it has everything I anyone would need. There are over 70 hours of classroom materials; a teacher book, student book, 35 worksheets and a rubric for each lesson. This book is classroom tested and is the real deal. When working on the individual activities in this book, my class is extremely quiet and on task , the kids are totally interested,and working within standards. Other activities like the “Google Search Game” the class is competing with each other with some real intensity! Students ask me “Are we going to play this tomorrow?” all the time. This book has it all, you could use it in any order or pick and choose the lessons that you think would work for your class. 

Lastly and  most importantly, as far as “Site License/Ebooks” go the price is less than half of most on the market while giving you 2 to 3 times the materials.
