Hot Dots for an Instant Response: Phase I Attacking Math

My students need a class set of Hot Dots Pens and three sets of Quiz cards across the content areas.

My Students

My students are all low income and many of them are English Language Learners. My Students are eager about learning! They love to be engaged in what they are learning about. They need any and all resources that can be made available to them to keep them learning! Hot Dots is that learning resource!

My students range from the ages of 7-10.

They are eager about learning and like to continue their learning process during play too! My school is a Title I School so all of my students are low income and many of them are English Language Learners. Many are lacking access to technology at home. They need activities that offer them a bit of technology and that encourage them to be successful. My students are the future of America and they deserve every opportunity and every resource that can be afforded them.

My Project

It's hard to give each student ample time on the computer when there are only three computers and 20 students. The Hot Dots Pens and Quiz Cards give students access to a bit of technology. These interactive pens give students instant feedback to the responses they make for each question. Letting students know immediately, if their answers are right or wrong, with positive reinforcement. It will keep the students excited about their learning across the content areas.

Hot Dots Power Pens and Quiz cards allow students to remain engaged while receiving instant feedback on their responses to questions that cross content curriculum.

The instant feedback continuously motivates the learner to try again with positive reinforcement. Students are actively involved and engaged in their learning. This process will help students master their basic skills leaving a firm foundation on which future learning can build upon.
