I teach a STEM research class and Computer Science at a large public high school that is fifty-eight percent Hispanic and fifty percent of the students are on free or reduced price lunch. These classes are an excellent opportunity for students to become immersed in a STEM curriculum and develop twenty-first century skills that will prepare them for the future.
My students are highly motivated learners that need help developing note taking and organizational skills that will carry them through their academic career.
These kids are all on a honors and AP track, yet often do not know how to take notes and properly access and store them. As a computer science teacher, I am always looking to incorporate technology into my lessons and the Rocketbook will allow my classes to develop these important skills in an environmentally friendly, sustainable format.
As students develop computational thinking and research skills, note taking and organization plays an important role in their success. Rocketbooks are an excellent way to teach these skills while incorporating digital technology in the classroom. Rocketbooks are reusable notebooks that look and feel like a regular notebook, but the pages can be synced to the cloud and uploaded directly into online notebooks and Google Classroom.
A class set of Rocketbooks would allow students to take written notes which is proven to help retention and then digitally store and access them for future use.
Using the handwriting detection, even allows the notes to be transcribed into a typed document. The possibilities are endless when it comes to sketches and research notes.
