The 50 plus students that come through my classroom every day bless me beyond belief. I have some students that are foster children that arrived at their temporary home with just a small suitcase of their belongings. Some students come from homes that are just your normal middle class family, and then some students come from a homes with parents that are highly successful and are able to give their children the world.
My classroom is a welcoming home away from home to all my students in which they feel safe, successful and loved.
I want each of my students to have the same opportunities in my classroom and to be able to use technology to increase their learning experience. These children are eager to learn, and I hope to show that learning is fun.
My students are not only learning Reading, Writing and Arithmetic in school, but also about the the Rs: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Our school would love to have a paperless classroom not only help our environment but to reach the 21st century learners. While that may be a difficult goal to reach, we can surely do our best to strive for a paperless classroom by using Chromebooks as much as possible.
My students need an extra Chromebook to complete a class set.
This would allow every student to have his or her own Chromebook and not share. We will be able to browse the internet to investigate various topics in science, create Powerpoints using Google Slides, and do assignments on Google Classroom rather than doing assignments on paper. These Chromebooks can be used to take virtual field trips around the U.S. in Social Studies along with view images of different landforms, historical landmarks and national monuments. The possibilities of using this technology in the classroom are endless.
