My Students

More than one-thirds of our Montessori school population are identified as eligible FARMS (Free and Reduced Meals) students. Seventy three percent (73%) are African American; thirteen percent (13%) White; six percent (6%) Asian and six percent (6%) Hispanic.

They are always excited to go to the Media Center to borrow books, do research, and discover new things using technology.

They love paper circuits, coding, robotics and physical computing.

My goal is to nurture my students’ love for learning and discovering new things by adding more hand-on and technology materials for them. I have a Makerspace studio corner in our Media Center where all students are welcome to explore the different materials available using their imaginations.

This project is for my Pre-K students who at a very young age love science and exploring things around them.

My Project

As Media Specialist, I am the not the usual person who brings Pre-K classes to field trips. But I definitely brought them to many places through the books I read.

But with this standalone Daydream VR headset, my Pre-K students can now take field trips on demand with no permission slips, chaperones, or chaotic bus rides required.

There is also a total freedom of movement and total immersion as they use it.

This easy-to-use, quick start, all-in-one headset has motion tracking with 110° field of view for a more comfortable experience. It also has hand controller for increased interactivity.

With this new technology gadget, my Pre-K students will have breathtaking educational experience and will learn greatly through the immersive environments created with it that support nearly every subject.
