My Students

Earth Systems is really a class of mini-classes. It offers a variety of topics like oceanography, geology, astronomy, and meteorology to engage our students! The students are very creative, inquisitive, and enthusiastic when it comes to learning about the various content topics. It is always amazing to see what they create in terms of models, posters, and essays as part of their required curriculum. We are also in the process of transitioning our Earth System classes into the digital age and getting our students familiar with electronic resources through the use of Google Classroom and several online educational tools, including virtual labs.

Our school has done a great job narrowing the digital divide for our students, but it is not completely absent.

Our students work diligently to meet every challenge, but with 42.8% of our students being economically disadvantaged, some lack the necessary home access to digital resources.

My Project

As our Earth System classes transition into the digital age with the use of Google Classroom, online tools, and virtual labs, we are finding that a handful of students in each class do not have a cellular device or access at home to these tools. Our school provides Chromebook carts that teachers share, but sometimes our students might need to complete a project they could not work on at home.

I often lend my teacher Chromebook for student use during class time and borrow a few more when available, but this has not met their needs entirely.

My plan is to set up Chromebook stations in the classroom for these special situations so that they could be used by these students. In doing so, we would be able to provide more equitable access to Google Classroom, online education tools, and research for those that need it.
