Mrs. Geris’ Classroom Edit display name

  • Highcroft Drive Elementary School
  • Cary, NC

Your custom url is https://www.donorschoose.org/mrs-geris

My students will use these Kindle Fires with cases and charging stations to extend their learning in the 21st century and build their collaboration and problem solving skills. My students will be able to share their thinking through the use of SeeSaw as they share and teach about the different skills we are learning in class. Every student in class will be able to view and comment on each other’s work which will allow them to further expand their grasp of the content we wish for them to learn. In addition to using the Kindle Fires for collaboration in the classroom, we would love to use them to encourage more parent participation. This will allow our students to share their learning and parents will be more connected to the classroom. With more technology in the classroom, students will also be able to further explore the vast amounts of information available to them online. We have seen the benefits of project based learning in our classroom. Adding technology to these projects gives students the added benefit of expanding their knowledge on different subjects and also allows them to collaborate with one another using digital media.
