For any lesson that requires the use of technology you should also have some sort of idea about what you would do if the technology failed or stopped working. There is nothing worse than discovering that the web page you were going to use for your lesson is down right when you need it, or having your computer freeze in the middle of a PowerPoint presentation. You don’t have to plan a whole entire backup lesson but if you have thought through what you would do in the event of a worst case scenario you will save yourself a lot of hassle. In the end the technology is not the lesson. The technology supports the lesson. You should be capable of teaching the material the old fashioned way if everything falls apart.
