Don’t you wish your students were as concerned about their English assignments as they are about their text messages?

Why We Need to Use New Media They’re using it; we need to, too. All students have a voice, even the most reticent ones. Our students must acquire new media literacy to be prepared for the future. Students can access the website from home or school, which can save time.

Why We Need to Use New Media New Media provides a way to differentiate instruction. It’s easy to manage and efficient for assessing student understanding . Using the Internet means less paper—and more trees! And, perhaps most importantly, students are engaged to the N th degree because it’s fun!

Getting Started Don’t be intimidated—you don’t have to be a computer expert to do this. Don’t be hesitant to let the kids experiment with the technology—they may be able to show you the way. Think about products and lessons you do the pen and paper way. How can you convert these ideas to new media?

Getting Started Lay out ground rules for acceptable use with students first. Have tough consequences for violators—shunning them from the online community works wonders, and having to hand-write responses while everyone else is online is tortuous for troublemakers.

Getting Started You might want to start with something easy, like a discussion board. Start out in a group environment like the computer lab, where everyone can experiment together. Get involved with student online discussions and monitor closely, especially in the beginning. Students will love having you respond to them as well.
