As a society, we rely on technology for almost all aspects of our lives. How many times throughout a school day can you remember the internet going out? How many times can you remember the direction of the class shifting gears because of the loss of an internet connection? A lot of our very own teachers rely on internet based lesson plans and the absence of it can cause havoc within the classroom. Whether it be through powerpoints, Kahoots, Khan Academy, or informational videos, the internet proves to be a vital tool in excelled learning. When the internet goes down, class comes to a screeching halt.
When asked how the internet problems affected her classroom in the first quarter, Mrs. Jesse replied, “Within the classroom, it was difficult for the students to use devices for web-based activities, but now it appears that the internet issues have been resolved within my classroom, and the students can access internet activities much faster.”
According to Mrs. Jesse, the internet problems have had some resolution within certain classrooms that have individual routers. But, this is only a concentrated fix to the widespread issue. Even though the school is working to fix our internet woes, we are in the meantime working with it everyday. Do you find it difficult to do Mathxl or write your paper when in a few short minutes the network goes down? It’s the hope of our own teachers, like Mrs. Jesse, that these recent fixes will be permanent so that classes can keep moving as planned.
