I would love to start flipping my classroom to become a technology rich environment. I do not have one to one technology in my classroom, so getting started with a couple of iPads will help me implement a green friendly and engaging room. I plan to use Desmos to engage my Algebra students to explore many variations with functions and linear graphs. I plan to use Quizlet to help my Geometry students engage whole-heartedly in vocabulary practice. All of this plus more can be done on the iPads. I'd also like to keep the iPads as safe as possible with the covers. A technology rich classroom is the goal, but manipulatives are just as powerful in learning math. As much as I would like to fully flip my classroom, I know it's not possible to do 100%. I plan on using manipulatives to also engage my students in hands-on learning. Seeing shapes come to life and changing into something else is powerful for students. I plan on using blocks in my Geometry class to create 3D figures and use them to make fidget devices that are engaging and will be used to explore many aspects of shapes, angles, area, surface area, volume, etc. To make the fidget cubes, I'll need a lot of 1 inch blocks, tape, straws, and glue. These fidget devices will not only keep the attention of my students, but will be great reminders of key concepts in my geometry classroom. Last but not least, I'd like to tell you why I asked for a classroom vacuum. Creating engaging lessons can be messy! I love educational chatter and I love educational messes, but I don't love students wasting time picking up small pieces of extra paper because our lesson contributed to it.
