Before the short teacher training (last break), the main reason for not helping kids to using laptops were” We don’t get trained enough so we don’t feel comfortable with using laptops in class, kids know more about laptops than we do“, After trained and saw that by there, they were able to help their student the following challenge has been ” There are some subjects we don’t know how we can teach them using laptops” this is understandable, other problem is the shortage of lesson time only 45 minutes, because of the new system of professionalism ( moving class to class teaching only one subject) ,and a big number of kids in class room ( more than 45), which should be helped by only one teacher.
All challenges given above are true, the two last challenges are mostly complementary to one raised by a teachers I discussed with, the main thing he think it can boost the use of these laptops and lead to full success is to ” Late kids take laptops home” as I said it , the lesson has only 45 minutes and the fact of distributing laptops, connecting power strips, and to restore the laptops in their boxes after teaching ,takes most of lesson time.
But ,once the kid take laptop home he/she will bring it charged and keep it under her/his desk make sure is ready any time in the lesson. and don’t forget that the most of teacher use the laptops in the last part of the lesson( lesson Application )where a kid really need time to think, and do investigation , research on the subject taught , all of these could not be achieved in these 45 minutes unless the kid takes laptop home for the outclass time use.( I hope this is going to be solved since at least now the P4, P5,P6 are allowed to take laptops home.)
