Mrs. Doxzon-Lewis from Saint Johns FL is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Creativity + Engineering = Best STEM Lab Ever!

My students need to be able to explore and build using the Lego WeDo 2.0, and all students from 2-5 will benefit from the whole set.

My Students

By creating such engaged learning environments my role as the teacher has been shifted from the primary source of information to a more facilitative and guiding role. I feel that this promotes an environment in which learners are encouraged to use constructive self reflection upon their discoveries, especially when students observe and apply thinking processes. These skills can provide a bridge between core classes and resources, allowing for greater success in every aspect of their academic journeys.

I strive to create knowledge-based learning communities, where my students develop shared understandings, collaboration, and evolve the value of multiple and diverse learning environments.

These unified communities build upon the strength of my students and fellow teachers by encouraging students to ask hard questions, set goals, lead conversations, and interact with people outside of the school environment, through interactive, online, Skype sessions with experts within our local communities.

My Project

My students not only are consumers of technology, but creators of technology. Technology is an integral piece in enhancing student learning and enabling student innovation, as well as failure. Failure should be emphasized, encouraged, and critiqued in project-based environments. It is recognized that successful innovation comes after failure and that grit is only developed through enduring failure. Surprisingly, students are confused at first when presented with the idea of failure and mistakes are okay, but tend to gain comfort once explained that, in order to truly learn we must make mistakes, only then can we evaluate and improve on our learning.

By providing the LEGO WeDOs in my STEM lab I am creating a future world of dreamers, believers, and doers.

Each student will be able to explore the depths of of their imaginations and unlock the potential inside each and every student that walks through my door. LEGO WeDos provide a way to build and program, basically seeing their creations and ideas truly come to life right in front of their eyes.
