My Students

We are a community of learners that have embraced the growth mindset challenge. We are always creating ways to showcase our learning and realize that not everyone learns at the same rate or the same way. We believe in the power of YET, we may not understand something....yet. It doesn't mean we will never understand. It just means that we don't understand it yet. We FAIL often (First Attempt In Learning) and we grow stronger and celebrate it.

We are a community of creators and learn so much from our creations, but more from other's.

We believe that creations should be shared, celebrated and critiqued. We grow each time we share. Ideally, we need to share and communicate our ideas to as many people as possible. We need to share our stories with the world!

My Project

Students will all get a chance to create and build with these blocks. As part of the technology lab they will engineer, build structures, and create. They will need to talk with each other and listen to other's ideas to create collaboratively.

The most motivating time during technology lab is when the students get to build things.

These blocks will help them communicate ideas and collaborate with others to build structures.

Creating structures will help these students by letting them use their imagination. They will work in groups to build and will use communication to create larger structures. We will tweet our results out to the word for reaction and reflection.
