My Students

My charter school is located in northern New Jersey. Our middle school students, grades 6-8, come from a variety of backgrounds. A diverse group of Hispanic, African-American, and Asian students, we are proud of their continued growth and success in and out of the classroom. Having graduated our first group of 8th graders last year, many of them went on to private school and academy programs in technology, law, medicine, and engineering. Going forward, our future graduates can reach the same amount of success, and raise the bar even more.

Our students are eager to continue using and learning technology in the classroom, expanding their world and learning to become digital citizens in the 21st century.

My Project

I am still working on trying to set my middle school students, grades 6-8, up to use VR experiences for social studies. Taking a virtual field trip to ancient Rome to see the Colosseum, view various Civil War battlefields, visit ancient Egypt and the pyramids. These viewers can also be used by our science teacher to experience some of the VR Google Expeditions that relate to her science lessons as well.

After completing a workshop last year on creating Google Tours for VR finders, I would like, if time permits this school year, to teach my students how to create their own, unique VR tours using Google.

Sharing such projects with other students will fully engage all students, keeping them accountable for their learning, and have fun at the same time.
