Immersing Ourselves Into the Technological World

My Students

Many call our students the "Children of the Corn" because our school is found in the back of the city surrounded by cornfields. Our students have true GRIT meaning our school and students have a climate and culture of try hard and do your best. We push them to keep trying even if it seems difficult and to help others. We also have a large population of students with disabilities in my grade this year and they need something to aid them in being successful so that they can reach their true potential.

My Project

Our district has laptop devices for the students, however, many of our students don't have access to headphones to allow them to explore more in their learning with videos and interactives.

Student directed learning is where I want to be.

Utilizing the resource of Google Classroom has allowed me to differentiate and allow student exploration more than ever before.

I also utilize Google Read & Write for many of its student friendly tools and to allow my students with special needs to use text to speech which the headphones with microphones will allow me to do. It gives them the chance to verbally say what they want to when writing is difficult for them.
