My amazing students are talkative, creative, and bursting with energy. They love to write, take videos and pictures, make playlists, and connect to the outside world through their devices. They also are thinkers. They write, take notes, are detectives, and analyze the old fashioned way. They like to get out of their desks to do their learning.
My school loves to see our students shine through their projects and activities.
We are a part rural/part suburban community, located in western Metro Atlanta.
This year, we are doing more work with computers in order to accomplish two goals: build 21st-century skills and prepare students for at-home learning should the need arise. This has become even more apparent after the school district transitioned to digital learning last spring.
In my classroom, we are using computers to expand our learning in different ways.
By providing my students with earbuds, we can make sure that every child has access to digital learning resources and activities. We plan on having them access audiobooks, videos, clips, podcasts, and recordings to aid in their learning as well as having them create their own audio in the form of video narrations and/or podcasts.
By having these available and used in the classroom, we can make sure they are available to send home should we need to. I have also requested cleaning kits to maintain a safe and healthy environment
