A Zoom Zoom Type of Education!

Help me give my students a pair of air buds and a laptop for virtual learning.

My Students

Our school has been canceled for the remainder of the year, and we aren't meeting in person the rest of this school year. The teachers are required to still teach using Google Classroom. I have contacted all of my students and we meet on Zoom or Google Meet every week to discuss the lesson and activities I have assigned. I also record lessons for the students to watch at home at their own pace. I hold office hours on Google to answer any questions students may have about my lessons.

I currently use a Chromebook from school that is more difficult to work with than a regular laptop.

The Chromebooks we have are mainly for student use. It is difficult to utilize some of the resources from a Chromebook. For example, I use flip charts to teach lessons, and I cannot access ActivInspire from a Chromebook. I tried to use my personal laptop, but it is outdated and very slow. It takes hours to plan a lesson and access all the material I need to make my lessons user friendly for my students.

My Project

Since school ended early and my students didn't get a chance to master all the standards in 2nd grade, I am using Google Classrooms to teach my students the remaining standards and review other standards already taught. I will use the laptop to prepare lessons, meet with students on Zoom and Google Meet for lessons, and come up with innovative ways to help my students master all the standards.

I will use the air pods to help drown out the background noises and help me hear and communicate with my students better on Zoom and Google Meet.

Sometimes it is difficult to communicate with the students when there are so many things going on around me.
