My Students

Most of our middle school students enter this year below grade level in reading and math. Our school is a neighborhood school with mostly low-income families with many students having siblings in lower grades. All of my students receive free lunch under the federal Title I program. 50 percent of my students this year are formally identified with Special Needs including ASD, SLD and many English Language Learners. Some have social anxiety and class presentations/public speaking are very hard for them.

My students, many with special needs, come from low-income households, yet they come to school every day excited to learn They have been working extremely hard this year, improving their independent scientific techniques and making discoveries that they are extremely excited to share with an audience larger than our classroom; they have put the challenge on me to make every available resource available to them to help them succeed.

My Project

Many of students have special needs and are learning English for the very first time. They are often hesitant to participate because for a variety of reasons and the social anxiety that comes from presenting before their peers.

This broadcast system will help allow them to refine, revise and publish their work when they are ready to do so, and in doing so they might rise to share their own very-capable voice with the school-wide community.

The SlingStudio hub will allow students to connect multiple devices and select multiple edits to properly share their work with their peers, parents and families. Simply, this project will help give a voice to students to feel uncomfortable sharing their own.
