INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATION:

 

Scenario 1:

The teacher can display the scenarios in a PowerPoint format, using fun, interesting pictures found from the Web.  I'm sure there are plenty of activities that can be found on the Web (with more scenarios) about tuning one's voice. The teacher could also show the students how to set up an online forum for discussion, or a page where the students can display their ideas (so they can post at later dates, or in the next computer scenarios below...)
