I teach at RTC. We are a specialty high school that caters to teaching CTE courses. My class is the introductory course for the entire medical cluster.
Today my students are high schoolers but tomorrow they will be the leading edge of healthcare.
They will start their journey to making a lifelong difference in medicine in my classroom, so I must be able to provide them with a strong foundation on which to build their knowledge.
My students will be moving out into our schools other health classes, such as EMT, Pharmacy Technician, Dental Assisting, CNA, and Sports Medicine, from my classroom and on to their future careers.
The truth of the health field is that it is becoming increasingly technology based, and today's health students must have access to that technology.
I am a new teacher and the classroom I am in used to be an electronics classroom. I teach Health Science. Right now we only have access to desktop computers so they are currently sitting on our lap tables. I am trying to put together, piece by piece, a classroom set of Chromebooks so that we can eventually move all the desk top computers out of the classroom so we can use our lab space to it's full potential.
With more space in our lab area we can do more STEM labs related to the health care field.
I try to incorporate a communication station, creation station, observation station, calculation station, imagination station, and a station where the students can take a short break. By having more room by moving the computers off the lab tables, we will have more room for stations that incorporate literacy, math, language arts, and technology into our lab work.
