In my classroom, I strive to develop a love of learning. I want school to be a place my students look forward to coming to every day. I provide opportunities for them to stretch their imaginations and challenge themselves.
My students are creative and insightful.
They each have unique talents and intelligence that contribute to the class as a whole. Many of my students' families do not have Internet access at home and they struggle to meet basic needs. However, our school culture strives for success and each student, teacher and staff contributes to that.
This Chromebook would be used to teach my students computer coding, conduct Internet research projects and develop skills for college and career readiness. Many jobs of the future will require skills that students can strengthen by learning coding. Computer coding teaches critical thinking and problem solving. It also allows students to work collaboratively with one another to share ideas and make progress together. They would also use this computer to create presentations that demonstrate their learning.
Utilizing this Chromebook in my classroom will increase my students' access to technology.
Learning computer coding will provide them with the chance to expand their horizons and open the door to the possibilities of their future.
