My Students

Many of my students are English language learners and are more engaged when technology is joined with numbers, text, ideas and creativity. They love to use slide shows to tell stories and benefit from using technology. The issue is we need more technology so that more students can be engaged and share their digital stories more often. Creativity could be so much more heightened if we had additional tools in order to regularly share their creativity with their families and friends through multimedia digital stories.

Our school is a Title One school and my ESL students struggle to meet Common Core Standards due to having limited English skills.

My Project

In the past school years, we have collected some classroom Chromebooks. I wish my students would have one-to-one technology in class that allows all students to access financial literacy and English language learning tools online. They will also discover ways to interact using English with students within our classroom who come from different (or similar) backgrounds than them.

Each year my students learn to create and deliver presentations of interest or informational presentations in mathematics, financial literacy, science and history.

Students design, research, incorporate visuals and type their ideas in order to communicate core ideas to an audience that is also interested to learn and give written feedback. Unfortunately, most of our school's Chromebooks need to be shared due to limited resources and public funding for this technology.

With additional technology, students will be able to record their ideas more immediately, and be able to more readily research, create and write, as well as present their slideshows more often. Having an additional Chromebook will help our newcomers and ESL students to acquire and use the English language more rapidly and effectively.

This will further empower our ESL/ELL students to connect with the world around them. They will make a concrete investment in their future in their appreciation of others' as they acquire English despite any and all distinctions that exist in our multi-cultural classroom. It would also further their knowledge about how technology can be used to conduct research and write as well as their English speaking peers.

The different colored pens helps ESL students to color code their learning and to deliver meaningful handwritten, financial literacy reports. Thanks for your consideration.
