Students at my school come from a working-class neighborhood that is very well integrated. They are every color of the rainbow and come from multiple backgrounds. One thing they have in common is that many of their families are working multiple jobs and having trouble making ends meet.
Teachers, counselors, and other staff members frequently purchase basic need items for students who are not able to receive them from their families.
This school uses a program of catching students doing the right thing. There is an ongoing conversation about "being a bucket filler" by doing good things. They receive incentive "bucks" for good behavior and deeds.
I want my students to have the same fun, exciting and wonderful experiences I had when I was in school. School should be fun and safe for all students to learn.
With adding new technology to our classroom we are looking into Augmented Reality. We have iPads and need more hands on activities that we can use in the classroom. Students can explore to world on the globe and bring places alive when scanning over them with an iPad.
Students can look and see thing 3 D in an augmented reality, they can also look at flash cards, coloring books and more.
Students can be creative and look at many things, landmarks,and places in augmented realities. I think this would be good to add to our technology rich Friday’s. Let’s get back to augmented reality!
