My Students

We have a wonderful group of fifth graders representing a wide range of abilities, interests and needs. Our school is a five-six building where we utilize two person teaching teams. Additionally, our school is a Title I School, as well as a "Focus School" which means the majority of our students are considered "At Risk."

I teach literacy and social studies to our team of 53 students.

Many of our students are unmotivated readers and writers and several have emergent level skills. Technology has proved to add excitement to our learning. Our students are particularly eager to share their thinking during discussions and often present their learning to the class as well. Incorporating a wireless microphone into our discussions and presentations will help the students to hear one another better, while also empowering the students who are sharing their learning.

My Project

Qball is a microphone ball that can be tossed around the room for students to use during classroom discussions. This technology will add excitement to our learning by making students more eager to share their thinking. It will also facilitate learning by helping students understand every speaker in our class, even those with tiny, timid voices!

The Qball microphone will make it easier to hear students speaking and help to keep all students engaged in learning.

I think my students will love the idea of being able to throw and catch the microphone, so even my students who are reluctant to share in class will be excited about participating in conversations.
