My students are amazing. They are constantly coming up with new and innovative ways to create projects. Students work in groups to complete projects and rotate supervisor positions to help manage their individual skills. They use the engineering design process for all of their projects.
My students are eager to explore the world and technologies in the classroom.
In my classroom, my students live by the quote, "Design. Build. Transform." We are always looking for new and innovative ways to explore technology and the world around us. I teach middle school Technology Education to all sixth, seventh and eighth grade students. We are a public school. There are approximately one hundred and twenty students in each grade level. Technology Education classes are required for all grades. We also offer two elective classes for seventh and eighth grade students.
My students will use the wireless transmitter, slide dimmer and LED matrix to explore electronics and circuits. These materials, littleBits, allow students to prototype and learn using electronics. These electronic modules snap together with magnets and allow students to create ANYTHING! It will help them understand the technology used in today's society and help them explore their creativity.
This project will help me provide a learning environment that will help my students to explore the design and engineering aspects on a deeper level.
It will also be used as a gateway for students exploring TechEd. It will assist me in taking my students' learning to the next level! These materials will allow me to foster creativity and collaboration with my students. It will also enhance our lessons in TechEd.
