Help me give my students endless opportunities at their fingertips with the use of Chromebooks in our classroom!
I am currently a second-grade teacher at an elementary school in the Baldwin-Whitehall school district. This year I have been given the unique opportunity to departmentalize with one of my colleagues. We will share 45 second-grade students and my primary instructional focus will be based in the content areas of Math and Science.
I have two wonderful classes of students that I spend each and every day with.
These children offer such diverse social, emotional and academic needs. Although my students are all performing at different levels of learning, I believe they all deserve an equal opportunity to learn, grow and be successful in ways that are most meaningful to them. I strive to create a safe and innovative learning environment that sets high expectations for all students while personalizing their learning to make each and every minute of school meaningful.
Without enough technology, it makes it very challenging for my students to connect outside of our classroom walls and create innovative solutions for our future. We also could use these Chromebooks to design STEM projects to compete in STEM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Mathematics) and create meaningful, real-world projects through PBLs. With these amazing students and more technology, the possibilities are endless!
The Chromebooks would allow our students access to several tools that are already becoming indispensable to their educational experience.
As a Google Apps for Education district, all students have Google Drive accounts and are using Google Docs to create, edit, and revise research projects and competition projects. Other ways the Chromebooks would be used include, but are not limited to, Google SketchUp, Lego Robotics, and websites that allow students to create their own code for website and mobile applications.
Chromebooks are an inexpensive portal to all of the tools that students are requesting to support their creative and innovative learning.
Chromebook donations will allow our students to continue to transition toward more meaningful, real-world learning experiences. Having Chromebooks will also allow my students to have more autonomy over their learning which will help their self-esteem and will foster peer collaboration, which is a school-wide goal.
