I serve all 6th grade students in and around the small, rural town of Graham. Our student demographics include low-income, ESL, special needs, and general education students- all are AMAZING and INSPIRING! Our students are growing up in a unique environment. We aren't a small school but we have a big sense of community. We are the only Junior High School in our town which has allowed our students to grow up together and feel like family.
Students in our small town often have limited experiences outside of our rural setting.
Obtaining new technology and resources for our students would broaden their horizons and foster a love and passion for education and exploration of the world around them.
The device in this project will allow the teacher freedom to move around the classroom and interact with students while still integrating the existing technology that we have in the classroom.
Students will enjoy more active participation through use of the Mimiopad.
This will also allow me to be able to move about the room and work one on with with students while still utilizing the projector and board. It will enable me to get from behind my desk and get with my students and better use technology in the classroom.
More interaction means better relationships, more student engagement, and more effective teaching.
