Chromes for the Classroom

My students need 6 Chromebooks to allow them to work with AutoDesk software while learning how to build and manipulate 3D digital images.

My Students

Each day in our science classroom is different and unique. One day we may be dissecting a flower while the next day we are working on computers 3D modeling a webbed duck foot. I want my students to be excited about learning. At the end of the year, I want my students to be curious.

Our students thrive on creation and yearn to use more technology while learning about the scientific world around them.

Our school is located in a setting that encourages and motivates our students to innovate and create. It also draws our students to walk amongst the oak in the hills that our school is tucked into. Our students are respectful and thoughtful and always grateful for opportunities that make the classroom more engaging.

My Project

Students in my science classroom will be using the Chromebooks for a variety of purposes, depending on the day. We will utilize these computers to access AutoDesk software to 3D design biomimicked prototypes. We will make websites showcasing the different functions of a cell. Students will also be utilizing these Chromebooks to practice computer coding skills.

Students need to be engaged in their learning.

There is no better way to engage than to tie their learning to their everyday lives. Technology is a part of their lives and if we, as educators, can teach students how to use these tools in a more sophisticated way, in a classroom setting, they are bound to be successful.
