My students need Chromebooks to collaborate about their learning and understanding of mathematics, problem solve, and learn things that will make them successful in this 21st century learning environment.
I teach a diverse population of sixth graders. Not all of the students have access to technology at home or a device they carry around. Chromebooks at school are often hard to come by since they are shared with other classes.
My students are eager to learn and like to use technology to collaborate.
At this age, they love to use their cell phones and socialize. They are learning to be digital citizens and a community of learners who are able to make decisions and help each other grow.
These Chromebooks will help my sixth grade students engage in collaborative assignments where feedback is part of their learning. I love to use cloud-based collaborative tools that allow students to share ideas, learn from each other, and think and respond at their own speed. They also allow me to hear from everyone, give and get feedback, and build relationships with my students. Having Chromebooks in the classroom helps students who do not have access to wifi or computers at home.
I hope to increase students' 21st century skills through mathematical discussions using online collaborative tools.
Chromebooks are excellent tools to get them there.
