My scholars need access to technology to explore STEM learning through a multimodal approach. Chromebooks would allow my scholars to collaborate and participate in cross-curricular inquiry-based learning. Access to Chromebooks will provide our scholars with an engaging, interactive component that is presently lacking in the classroom. Our 6th grade departmental model will be enhanced by utilizing chromebooks to allow for more collaboration across content areas and an increase in digital literacy. As the science teacher, I am looking forward to collaborating with Mr. H, the math teacher, and Ms. S, the literacy teacher, on cross-disciplinary inquiry work bringing STEM learning and literacy alive! Scholars will be engaged in inquiry work in each content area: science, math, literacy, social science and computer science. Multimodal composition projects such as videos, podcasts, blogs, collages, audio essays, comic strips, and storyboards will be designed, produced and shared by scholars to showcase their new understandings. Particularly in Science, scholars will use the chromebooks to find and take photos that represent various stages in the nutrient cycle and assemble their images into a digital collage. Groups of scholars will create videos using everyday materials to represent the different types of rocks and how they change through the process of the rock cycle. Storyboards can be created using video clips and images to show scholar understanding of fossil formation. Clay and other materials can be used to create stop motion videos to illustrate the processes of mountain building, volcanic formation and earthquakes. Groups will create podcasts demonstrating their understanding of the processes involved in severe weather phenomena. With Chromebooks and collaboration, the possibilities of creating multimodal composition projects and sharing learning are endless.
