2. Content-
Technology, computers, touchscreen, mouse, keyboard,sound
3. Goals: Aims/Outcomes-
1.Understanding computer terminology.

2.Understanding how to use the equipment.

3.Understanding why we use technology.
4. Objectives-
1.Raise comprehension scores.

2.Use as a reward for good behavior.

3.Additional method used for teaching.
5. Materials and Aids-
computers, headphones
6. Procedures/Methods-

A. Introduction-

1.Class, what is technology?
2.Class, how do we use it?
3.Class, how is it used safely?

B. Development-

1.Demonstrate how to use a computer. Assume that the students have never used one, teach them the basics.
2.Show each part of the computer that will be used for their learning needs. Demonstrate the correct way to use the computer.
3.Explain why using computers safely is very important. (Internet safety)

C. Practice-

1.Use computers alongside using a book. For example, if the book is a Dr. Seuss book, have them read a passage and then look up the words on the computer.
2.Students must have guidance, so do not leave them unattended or they might end up playing a game.
3.Since the child is being monitored, give them incentives to do their best during work time. If you do your math, then I can let you look up something about dinosaurs or whatever sparks their interest.

D. Independent Practice-

1.After assignments have been completed during allotted time, give an assignment on the computer that measures the students progress and comprehension.
2.Give assignments on the computer that give the students instant good jobs when they get the answer correct.
3.Reteach if the student does not show growth.

E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)-

1.If the child has a difficulty sitting still, give them a bouncy chair or a squeeze ball.
2.If the child has difficulty focusing, have them put on the headsets.
3.If the child has a difficult time seeing, adjust the font size and/or color on the monitor.

F. Checking for understanding-

1.Frequently give assessments to see if re teaching is necessary.
2.Ask the child how they like doing their math on the computer.
3.Look for behavior indicators to show that using the computer is a positive for each child.

G. Closure-

1.Each day, remind the students to ask questions about technology. Where can we use it? Who uses it? Get their minds engaged so they can see that technology is everywhere.
2.Remind them to always stay safe, never give out personal information and what to do if they think they did something wrong while using a computer, cell phone or other device.
7. Evaluation-
1.How do you feel the lessons are progressing?

2.What areas need to be revisited?
