My Students

As we venture into the world of digital learning, there are some successes and some road bumps! All in all our students are taking it in stride, I never thought I wouldn't be allowed to go grab what we needed from our classroom to teach from home! I am without my "good" technology and supplies as I never bring them home because I use them at school!

We are also starting to set up our clubs from home so I need to make some demos from home!

My students are accessing their lessons on phones, shared tablets, or whatever technology they have available to them, this is why I need to be clear and loud when creating my digital lessons. Some of them do not have a quiet place to work; they share bedrooms and some do not even have bedrooms as they are couch hopping as family members are working.

My Project

So since we are home I have realized that I really do not have the technology here to host zoom meetings, or create online lessons without constant shutting down and stalling. I generally create all my lessons at school where I have a real desktop computer. When I am home I really do not have an updated computer needed to run all the new programs we are now using.

A Macbook will not only allow me to help my students now but when we go back to school the technology of a Macbook will allow me to expose my students to some really incredible graphics programs to use in class.
