As a new teacher, how do you handle managing your time? I feel as though the lessons I plan work great on paper. However when I go about teaching, the lesson is either too short, or I run out of time and get to everything I want to cover.

I have seen a few classrooms where using ipads to do exploration and used in lessons. I'm a little worried that using technologies like that in some classrooms can be distracting.

I feel much more confident now that I can explain why Pluto is no longer a planet and also what dwarf planets are.
