My Students

"The number one benefit of information technology is that it empowers people to do what they want to do. It lets people be creative. It lets people be productive. It lets people learn things they didn't think they could learn before, and so in a sense, it is all about potential," Steve Ballmer.

My students come from a high-poverty community; one hundred percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

They are in a Title I school in McMinnville, TN. My fifth graders love escaping the problems of life through reading, writing, and drawing.

My Project

I love teaching reading, it lets me watch my students explore the world without leaving their chairs. Having my students read to me lets them build confidence in themselves while also building fluency. But, "Ms. McGee, I can't hear her read!" is a common complaint heard in my classroom. The average humidity levels for my town is between 55 and 85 percent. Due to this, we have to have a dehumidifier running at all times in order to protect our books and technology. If at any point we have to run the dehumidifier and the air conditioner, students can't hear each other read.

My students will have a ball using Qball.

It will engage all of my students in both whole group and small group activities and, let's be honest, who doesn't want to have permission toss things around during class?
