Alexa Can You Help Us?

My students need Echo Dots to assist them in their learning. The Echo Dot would allow them to ask questions and receive answers in a fast and efficient manner.

My Students

First let me start by saying I teach an amazing group of kids who always give me their best! My classroom has a unique set up with 50 students, two teachers and an instructional assistant.I teach at a Title I school and my students come from a wide array of backgrounds and home lives. My students also have varied abilities. I have students working two years below grade level all the way to two years above grade level.

It is very important for me to provide a classroom where my students are comfortable and able to focus on their learning.

My Project

My students would benefit from having Echo Dots to assist them in their learning. The Echo Dot would allow them to ask questions and receive answers in a fast and efficient manner. The Echo Dots would be used all throughout our day, including math and language arts times. Small student led groups could use the Echo Dots to set timers, receive reminders, and provide support for questions. Having the Echo Plus with built-in Hub link the Echo dots would allow multiple ways for the students and teachers to communication and use the devices.

My class loves to research the world around them and are often consumed with finding the answers to their questions.

Echo Dots are relatively new to the research scene and I can't wait to show my kids this new learning tool! This would allow them to have the world at their fingertips! The Echo Dots would also help me find answers quickly it their (sometimes) complex questions. The Echo Buttons would allow us to interact with different games and functions of the Echo products.
