Tal's steps to getting technology in the classroom

This guide is a quick starting off point for teachers who want computers in their classrooms and don't necessarily have the option of asking their administrators for a set. This checklist was put together by high school teacher Tal Sztainer, who fundraised and bought computers for his classroom in less than 2 weeks.

Find the computers you want

  • Shop around a bit online or in stores - if you are simply having your students use the internet, you probably don't need high-end computers
  • Used computers are great! But beware of the increase in technical problems. Make sure that either you or someone available can deal with troubleshooting.
  • Places to start: (a) Device considerations, (b) Computers For Classrooms (CA), (c) Chromebooks

Fundraise and apply for grants

Set up your computers and start using them!

  • Få styr på detaljer såsom opladning af computere, gemme dem sikkert, osv
  • Afprøv computere for at sikre de fungerer med Khan Academy
  • Overvej at købe nogle billige hovedtelefoner (eller gode)
  • Sikr at eleverne er bevidste om hensigtsmæssig brug af computere - overvej et regelsæt
  • Read about technology and device considerations prior to using Khan Academy
