My students are innovative, motivated, and excited learners. Despite what challenges they face at home they come to school ready to do their best. These students enjoy hands-on, project-based learning, and coding in the classroom. They love working with their peers to accomplish tasks and brainstorm ideas for writing or engineering projects. We strive to choose kindness over being right by teaching students how to interact in groups, in society, and how to give back. As fourth graders, I can see the future changing with all that they bring to the table.
With these Chromebooks, students will be able to explore the world of coding and project-based learning. The ability to have Chromebooks in our classroom allows for differentiated instruction. It allows learners to have different assistive technology at their fingertips. This technology also opens doors for this group of students who may never leave their home due to poverty or structure of home life. They can learn what is happening in the world, become engineers and peer teach other for those who don't have as much technology at home.
Teaching problem solving and the engineer design process becomes more real when students can apply it in the classroom.
