My Students

I have a class filled with some of the best 4th graders in the world. My class loves to learn, especially when technology is involved. I have 22 students, 3 students are English Language Learners, and 3 are on Individualized Education plans. My students are loving and caring and truly support each other.

My 22 students love learning, but sometimes the lack of resources get in the way of how much we can learn in school.

We are located in a fairly large city north of Boston, Massachusetts and I have a large variety of students. In my school I have started a Technology Club where students stay after school to learn more about how to use technology appropriately. Funding this project will help my class, as well as the 5th grade students in Technology club. I know with the proper supplies and support from their teachers these students will be able to do amazing things in the near future inside and outside of the classroom. These children have the desire to learn, and they are so happy whenever they acquire a new skill in the classroom.

My Project

These two items will make the world of a difference in the lives of my students. Part of our 4th grade curriculum is to study the United States of America. We focus on what makes America so beautiful to visit, and wonderful to live in. My students love learning about their country and visiting places through Google Earth, however, the way they are assessed does not match the way they are learning in the classroom.

I want to use these materials to makes Social Studies learning and assessments accessible to all of my students.

Using a green screen will make it possible for my students to place themselves in front of famous landmarks or landforms and report on them for their classmates. This adds another level of excitement for learning not only Social Studies, but how the technology behind it all works.

The technology club I created at my school is geared towards 5th graders. I have already planned out everything the 5th grade students will do with this screen and iPad. Using the iPad, students will work in groups of 3 to record each other throughout the building or using the green screen, add voice-overs, background music, and piece together video clips to make their own videos.

Giving 4th and 5th grade students the opportunity to use an iPad to record themselves, edit videos, and use the green screen to place them in an important place in our country, or our countries history is hands-on learning at its finest. I cannot wait to see how excited my students will be to keep learning.
