My class is full of sixth graders yearning to learn. This subjects covered in this class are science and social studies. The class consists of small groups, class discussions, and stations. Our class learning includes the use of technology to help students prepare for the future.
Give these students a chance to gain more technology use by providing a computer mouse for each student.
Currently we are using Chromebooks with a touch mouse. The students are easily frustrated by the sensitivity of these. Students are currently creating their own web sites and would be able to progress quicker if they had the use of a mouse. Imagine the possibilities they could create with the use of a mouse!
Students are currently creating their own Google Site as well as using technology in many other ways and are struggling to use the touch pad on the Chromebook.
A computer mouse will help the students work with less frustration.
They will avoid the sensitivity errors from the touch pad and feel more confident in their technology endeavors. It would be easier to right click and left click as well as highlighting the needed text.
The students will simply be able to plug the mouse into the computer when needed. Imagine the freedom, independence, and frustration free use of the technology that will encourage the students to work harder.
