Hooray! This project is fully funded
My physics students are curious and interested in our world. They are an incredibly diverse group from around the world. Many speak other languages, yet all come together to learn. Regardless of their culture, all families want their children to learn everything they can and prepare for a successful future.
Like most students today, they infuse technology into all of their activities.
Having access every day helps them learn about physics. Science classes are great for allowing all students to integrate technology into learning concepts.
My classes use Chromebooks several times a week. Students use them to write papers, presentations, take quizzes, access online textbooks and simulations and play educational review games like Kahoot. However, our school is very large and the carts are shared between many classes. Daily access to Chromebooks would allow my students to integrate technology as needed, not just when the class has the cart. Having an additional Chromebook, with Google Management License, every single day would allow students to have even more differentiated learning opportunities. Physics has a wealth of probeware and simulations that can help students explore and understand complex concepts. Access to the internet is essential for students. Thanks to DonorsChoose.org, I already have 10 for my class. Another one gets me closer to a 1 Chromebook to 2 student ratio that would allow partner work. This project was adjusted to include the most current model our district is using.
