This unit was all about teaching equipment. In a previous unit we learned about different teaching materials that a teacher could use, but this unit focused on the other means of getting a lesson idea across to the students. In this unit I learned that the main types of equipment are whiteboards/ IWB, overhead projector, visual aids, worksheets, cassettes, cd players, videos/ dvds, video cameras, dictionaries, course books, resource books, photocopiers, computers and online resources. All of these pieces of equipment have their advantages and disadvantages, and this lesson helped to highlight the uses of each. Not only do I think it is important to vary how you are representing the information to keep students interested, I also think it is important to know your class and what type of equipment would work best to achieve the lesson outcome. I have seen in the past experiences where a teacher really wants to use a technology in her lesson, but it was like she was trying to fit a cube in a circle. It's a great idea to use different equipment, but not to use it just to use it. I have often seen this kind of mistake when teachers are being evaluated, because they want to show off, or show that they are adapting with the times. Another key point to using equipment in the classroom is to set it up early, make sure it works, and know how to use it. Often times I have also seen teachers use the technology error as an excuse, but if the lesson is prepared properly, the teacher should know ahead of time that the equipment isn't going to work correctly. In my past experiences, the guy I would work with never wanted to create lesson plans, which meant he would attempt to use technology off the cuff without planning it (he also did this with typical lessons too). Students would end up sitting around while he tried to figure out the set up, or sit there waiting for him to figure out how to teach the lesson.
