Hooray! This project is fully funded
"I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand." I use this quote as a philosophy in my class. I want to empower my students through doing things. I believe the smart board and document camera will continue to help make materials more accessible and interactive.
My students are very diverse ethnically, geographically and socioeconomically.
Most of my students have multiple ethnicities, which is normal here in Hawaii. About half travel from great distances to attend the school, some more than two hours each way. It is not uncommon to hear that a family lives in an old school bus or simple shack, but the students still maintain high academic standards and rigor. They laugh loud and play a lot of music. It is common to hear students playing their ukulele before and after school, which gives me a chance to practice my bongos.
The Smart Board and Document camera will help students more actively engage in their learning. Students will be able to use the smart board for interactive science programs as well as for presenting their independent research projects. My own demonstrations will become more engaging for students as I will be able to project everything from graphs to dissections.
The way young people learn and interact with the world has changed as rapidly as our technology has evolved.
The Smart Board and Document camera will help me keep pace with my students' learning styles and help my students become more technologically savvy.
