My Students

Students are driven by technology, not only in their daily lives, but also in their educational lives. We have to strive to challenge them to create meaningful creations and use technology responsibly in order to prepare them for the future that they will face.

My students are awesome.

I'm sure that every teacher says that about their students but I REALLY mean it. My students are creative and love to explore the topics that we discuss in our ancient civilizations class. They are very inquisitive and want to know the whole story. My group of 6th graders this year are very willing, and able, to use technology to enhance their learning. In fact they expect it!

My Project

I have a classroom set of Chromebooks and the point of them is to get the students working together collaboratively. One of the methods that I plan to use is a service called "Voicethread." Voicethreads are a way that students can record their voices and share them with each other in a safe environment. In order to use voicethreads I will have to have headphones for the students to hear each others posts. I also have an online interactive text book that includes videos that would also require the use of headphones.

If you donate to my classroom you will help students learn digital responsibility.

My students will learn how to responsibly share and collaborate on the internet. I feel that this will teach them skills that will prepare them for the collaborative jobs that will exist in their futures.
