My Students

My students and I are trying our best to continue learning with the same curriculum that we were using in class. Students are learning to create their own playable video game using javascript. Students are given the lesson to do at home and we hold three Zoom sessions every week so that I can explain the lesson and answer any questions they might have.

Unfortunately, my laptop slows downs when I am running Zoom.

A new laptop will help the lessons run smoother.

My Project

Back in late March when we were told that we will begin delivering lessons via distance learning I knew that my students will step up to the challenge and continue with their learning from home. However, my home computer was not up to the challenge of helping deliver lessons from home. Due to its age, it constantly freezes when doing Zoom sessions and trying to demo the lesson.

Getting a new laptop will help me deliver smoother lessons to my students so that we can focus more on the curriculum and not have to pause to wait for the computer to load the program that was coded.
