Step 7: Establish a timeline

During this step, organize the learning and teaching activities based on an allotted time for each activity. Consider how each student works best and vary your instruction by using different modes of learning: individual, cooperative and collective. You may also want to use more than one teaching approach in the same classroom session.

Keep in mind that planning for a technology-rich classroom may present some differences from a traditional classroom. There may be hardware problems (a keyboard not working, for example), software challenges, or students needing more time to get familiar with a piece of software. Be ready for such events by organizing your time in a flexible way.
