My Students

Teaching in the Internet age means we must teach tomorrow's skills today. Jennifer Fleming, Associate Professor in the Department of Journalism & Mass Communication at California State University

I teach Kindergarten at an urban school.

My students are enthusiastic 5 and 6 year olds. Many of them live with a single parents or other relatives (grandparents, aunts and uncles). They often come to school lacking experiences that would enrich their learning, like having a collection of children's books at home, taking trips to new places, or attending an academically-based preschool. Regardless of their home lives, they are excited about learning and strive to accomplish new things!

My Project

In an increasingly technological time, it is vital that my students begin to work with and understand technology, even at this early age. Keeping students engaged in what they are learning is essential in the classroom, but also sometimes difficult because of the constant stimulation they receive from the environment. Using tablets to teach skills like the alphabet and reading will keep my students excited and engaged in their learning.

I am so excited to watch my students as they begin to play learning games and read along to books on these Fire HD for Kids tablets!

Students love using technology in the classroom and these kid-friendly tablets allow students to take charge of their learning in a hands-on way. Students will be reading and solving literacy questions in no time!
