Building Strong STEM Lab for our Future!

My students need 15 Lenovo IdeaCenter computers and three surge protectors to learn technology skill sets to show their knowledge.

My Students

Most of the students attended the same elementary school and have been friends for several years. To them, their classmates are close like their family. They support and help each other along the way in their journey of learning. They are creative, innovative, and curious. Our school is a Title I School. Many of our students come from low income families; all of our students receive free lunch. Many of them will hopefully be the first in their families to go to college. Over half of them do not speak English at home, and for many, English is not their first language. Most of them are ELLs (English Language Learners.) The diverse student population helps the students to embrace differences and bring in learning opportunities to one another.

My Project

In this generation, we were blessed by having computers and internet that gives us the technology at our finger tips. With a few clicks, we were able to find information and learn more than we could have a couple decades ago. Now, students need to skills and tool-set to be able to filter what they find out to share with others. Having these set of classroom computers will allow me to incorporate technology more often in the classroom.

My students need 15 Lenovo IdeaCenter computers to learn technology skill sets to show their knowledge.

Students will be able to use Excel to check their calculation and learn to do calculation reports. Students will also learn to use Powerpoint to present their project. Students can also be exposed to use Microsoft Publisher to create posters and brochures. The larger screens on these computer lets us to do a lot more of cooperative work, rather than the very small screens we currently have. In the global society today, knowing how to work in group is very important.

With these materials in my classroom, I can teach students a bit more on the skill set that allows them to present their knowledge. It helps to strengthen their knowledge, providing them a skill to show what they know.
