My Students

My students love coding and they love being hands on with technology! Their eyes light up with wonder when they learn with technology. Technology makes them even more excited to learn and it broadens their potential learning growth exponentially by allowing them to learn without limitations.

Unfortunately, most of my students do not have access to any technology in their homes.

Having accessible technology in school and allowing my students to use programs like code.org would maximize my student's growth.

My Project

My students love coding! They use code.org which is a program that makes coding fun and interactive. This program will help to promote the love of coding to students who don't have access to technology at home.

With more Chromebooks in the classroom, I could offer my students the opportunity to learn how to code in a technology paced world.

The software allows students to code and watch their code play out in the form of a video game. It can be used as the beginning of kindergarten all the way through to high school. Coding is an innovative way to learn and allows children to think outside the box!
