My Students

Have you noticed the youth of today becoming tech wizards as babies? Help me funnel their expertise into a new age of learning. We need technology in our classroom to become career and college-ready students.

I have a classroom of 28 fourth graders in a public school in Arkansas.

I have students from middle to low socioeconomic status. They are a mix of Hispanic, Caucasian, Asian, and African American students. All of these racial groups, regardless of language and background, are very eager to learn. They are extremely motivated when going to our computer lab and when using our classroom Smartboard. They easily adapt to new situations and are up for the challenge of technological learning.

My Project

My students will be able to work in multiple modalities (tactile, visual, and auditory) that will motivate them to practice new concepts and enhance their abilities to share their thinking and learning with a Chromebook. The applications written for this age group include immediate feedback that motivates by either correcting mistakes or moving forward to new challenges. The learning styles and needs of young children require tactile, visual, and auditory experiences. Children need practice and repetition with the many concepts that are part of reading, writing, economic skills, and math. Students gain from working together, guided by a teacher, and yet they also need the leeway to work at their own individual speed and developing skill level. My students have a supplemental digital math curriculum that allows for students to work at their own differentiated pace and with classroom Chromebooks, more students would be given that opportunity. Chromebooks are a fast tool to research, write, and link classroom thinking and learning together when working in a group. Many schools are recommending one Chromebook per student.

I want to follow the lead of many schools in this country that are effectively using Chromebooks as tools for learning in elementary programs.

My students have had access to technology through digital cameras, a computer lab, iPads, and our classroom SmartBoard and they have excelled! The Chromebook offers an opportunity to enhance my students' learning with the direct and effective use of a highly interactive technology tool.
