Teaching Technology plays an important role in today’s society. Incorporating it into the classroom in the elementary grades is a great way for students to benefit in the future, as they are introduced to more advanced technology each year. I would incorporate videos on a Smart Board, in my lessons, as a way to enhance my teaching, specifically to make the lessons more interesting. This would be a good way to teach Nancy, who has a problem concentrating if she thinks the lesson is boring. An example of incorporating video in a lesson would be using a website, NeoK12, during a math lesson as a visual aid to teach addition.

If Joey does not raise his hand and wait to be called on, he should have consequences, such as losing a minute of play time every time the teacher has to remind him to raise his hand or if she has to tell him to keep his comments to himself because they are off topic. If he loses more than 15 minutes in a week, then the teacher should call his parents and set up a conference with them. Joey should also be rewarded for the times he does raise his hand, waits to be called on, and does not talk about something off topic. For instance, the teacher could give a student a ticket when they are caught being good and allow them to cash them in for rewards. This is based on the classroom management principle that good behavior should be rewarded to motivate students to do their best. According to Skinner’s Reinforcement Theory of Motivation, behavior will be repeated if it is rewarded and will not be repeated if there are negative consequences ("Reinforcement Theory of Motivation",
