My students are amazing! They are fun, kind, sweet, and eager to learn - they have so much love to share! They are so special and don't let their different backgrounds/situations negatively affect their learning. They are very resilient and can conquer any and everything that they face in life. I teach at a Title I school with 100% of students receiving free lunch. The majority of our students come from low income households and as a result of this they are faced with many challenges in and out of the classroom.
All of my learners need to be taught and challenged in individualized, yet engaging ways.
This year, I have a strong variety of learners from ESL (English as a second language) learners to nurture learners (considered academically gifted) to students that have some learning disabilities. One of the most successful ways to engage each of these diverse learners and help them develop 21st century skills is through technology.
We use technology in our classroom every day! Having Chromebooks would benefit students in so many ways! They would become more comfortable with technology that will be such a big part of their future. They will be able to engage in individualized learning based on their needs as well as complete assignments and projects in collaborative groups.
The daily use of technology will prepare students for the ever changing world in the 21st century.
In our classroom students use a variety of websites daily to gain a better understanding in all subject areas including literacy, math, science, and social studies. Each of these lessons are on the level of the individual student to best meet their needs.
