My students are fifth graduate students half general and special ed. Fifth grade is an important grade because it is when they start to become individuals and really begin to think about who they want to become. They may not be ready to choose a career path, but are deciding if they are going to give it their all to do well in school, sports, and friendships. My students give it their all, all day, everyday! Technology helps me motivate them!
Unfortunately, our school receives very little funding for resources like technology and technology-related supplies.
We do the best we canto share among classes, but the continuous use of technology, daily, will help them become more proficient and motivated. Help me, help them.
My classes started using Google Classroom for education last year as a means acquiring knowledge, sharing information, providing feedback to each other, and extending thinking within the classroom walls. Students are understanding that writing is an art to be revisited over and over with pride and an open mind for revision and answers are available if they are willing to seek them out. Access to Chromebooks break down barriers that were once a hindrance to learning, such as not having enough books or the correct books.
With Chromebooks, students can search and extend their thinking at their will, without barriers.
After integrating the use of Chromebooks, students do extension projects and research without prompting or even the promise of extra credit. Chromebooks have promoted stronger self-motivation and student-centered learning.
