My Students

I teach at a south side school in the city of Chicago. My students absolutely love hands-on, active and engaging projects that enable them to connect with their surroundings. Due to the pandemic I would love to continue and provide the same experience.

My Project

Learning a new language can be very difficult and students can easily get frustrated. I would like to incorporate more hands-on features that can help students acquire a second language. I will be teaching Spanish this upcoming school year and would like my students to experience the Spanish speaking world. By incorporating VR images into my lesson, not only will student remain engaged, they will get to learn more about Spanish speaking countries.

The VR camera will be an incredible addition to tool used for teaching Spanish.

Most importantly, this camera will teach our students to view the world in thru a different lense and will give them a teaching experience that they never had.
