My Students

Our Integrated Co-teaching (ICT) class has thirty fourth graders, including students with and without special needs. My students are passionate about learning and they love to research, debate and work together as a community.

They are motivated to take risks, respectfully challenge each others' thinking and to be flexible thinkers.

As a school, we strive to cultivate intellectual curiosity and develop student voice. Our class knows that mistakes can be valuable as part of the learning process, and therefore, they always strive to do their personal best.

My Project

The five Chromebooks requested are similar to laptops or netbooks, but they are powered by an operating system created by Google. They are fast and user-friendly. Students will have access to Google applications like Google Docs (Google Docs provides word processing, presentation tools and spreadsheet applications) without the need of purchasing additional software to complete the task. This saves space on the Chromebook and keeps it running fast. Students will also have access to the internet for researching purposes and need headphones so they do not disturb other students. These Chromebooks are small and portable, allowing for easy use both independently and in small groups. My class will use these devices to research and plan presentations, visit educational websites, and publish a variety of writing pieces.

Education and technology are closely linked these days.

These devices will help prepare students to navigate a technology-driven world, with the support of classroom instruction. Students will have the opportunity for new and exciting learning experiences with the use of Chromebooks.
