My students need Echo Spots, Echo Spot Kids Edition and display stands to help satisfy the curiosity and random questions no one is ready for that pop up throughout the day.
My students love to come to school and they love to learn. However, teaching in an urban district which is a low-income area where over 95% of our students receive free or reduced price breakfast/lunch can be challenging. Most of my students come from a background of trauma and require not only academic support, but social and emotional support throughout the day. My goal is to make their school experience meaningful and fun while also setting high expectations and providing a safe, loving environment for all of my students no matter their circumstances. Each day our students come to school after getting themselves dressed, fed (some) and to the bus on time with little adult support. They still manage to walk through our doors with a SMILE and ready to learn. I want them to experience the same opportunities and advantages that other children experience.
Accessibility to materials, advantages and supplies is vital.
Having access to the Echo Dot would help me satisfy all of those spur of the moment questions that you as the teacher are NEVER prepared for!
The Echo Spot and Echo Spot Kids Edition will make a ton of difference within my classroom. Beyond the basic exposure to voice related technology, the Echo will save me time and help simplify my classroom management routines. For example, I say, “Alexa, set a ten-minute timer,” and the device will start timing the task right away. When it comes to randomly pairing or grouping students, Alexa has several different random generating options.
During the core subjects Alexa can tell stories, which are child-friendly, or I can play an audio-book.
It can reinforce vocabulary, provide definitions, pictures etc. This will be priceless for the majority of my class which is ESL. During Math and Science, Alexa can do basic calculations, such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. I can have the kids use the device to find the answers, or use these tools to “check” my students' math after completion. Additionally, Alexa has many probability tools, such as “Roll the dice” or ways to group the students. Since the device is essentially a search device, we can use Amazon Alexa to search information about science topics we are covering, ask about today's weather, or search the headlines of the day. The possibilities are endless and the internet is filled with amazing ideas to help facilitate Echo in the classroom.
