My students are from a suburban school. The school consists of kindergarten through sixth grade, approximately 350 students. Although not a wealthy district, teachers make every effort to utilize technology to energize our students' learning environment. As with all districts, we are making every effort to incorporate Common Core standards within our instruction, yet funding is being cut. It is an ongoing struggle to find relevant books and educational games that engage the students as well as meet their individual goals. By using technology students are able to perform authentic tasks while remaining engaged in their learning process. Students become more willing to work on tasks they would normally perceive as too difficult and have a greater sense of accomplishment after achieving their goals.
