Having the additional two of Chromebooks will allow for different structures of learning in my classroom. One way they will be used is as a STEM center or for an engineering challenge. Students can look up pictures of bridges and then design their own using nothing more than Popsicle sticks, rubber bands, and tape. Another way they will be used is by recording the results of an experiment. We have 10 chrome books in class today, and we need 14 more to have one Chromebook per student so that we can use applications like google classroom more effectivly. Recently, we have been conducting research on the animal life cycle and made google slide reports on the current chrome books, but we need more for everyone. If we have a couple more we can eventually have our goal of 24 chrome books in the classroom. In the future, with the purchase of the chrome books and the kit on how computers work students will be ready for the real world competitive technology race. They can conduct their experiments and then they could collaborate on group findings by sharing through the cloud. In addition, I could download apps for various math practice skills for a math center, which would allow me to have activities for both my highest performing and most struggling students. My project will make a difference because, as I said before, these students are becoming more and more technology savvy and they are the generation to change the work through technology. Our classrooms are not yet at the level technologically to meet their needs as learners. With your help, this grant will help to close that gap just a little bit more.
