My Students

"At the heart of effective technology integration, technology offers opportunities to be more actively involved in the learning experience."-Vanessa Vega, Autotype Research Analyst. I'd like 2 Chromebooks and an iPad mini to make learning active, interesting, and meaningful in my classroom.

I have 28 of the best 4th graders!

Our school is year round and is located in Central California. Many of my students speak a second language. My students are all very unique and have different needs. Some students are high performing and need extra enrichment and challenging assignments. Other students need extra practice and reinforcement of basic skills. Some just need the extra motivation that using technology, like chromebooks and an iPad, can create. I would love to be able to further differentiate my classroom instruction to meet the needs of all of my students through the use of chromebooks and an iPad.

My Project

I would use Chromebooks and an iPad to enrich my students' learning by giving students the daily opportunity to read books online, practice their math skills online through our adopted math curriculum, and allow me to guide them in doing research in Science and Social Studies to further enrich their learning. Imagine a group of students researching the rich history of California on chromebooks. Later, my students can use the chromebooks to type their research papers on a google doc. At the same time, another student might be reading a classic novel on the iPad or learning to code on the Chromebook. I can also assign extra math practice online for students and having the Chromebooks in my classroom will allow me to be able to differentiate my math program. Students need to be engaged to maximize their learning. Allowing students to have daily hands-on access to technology will allow them to be active learners.

With access to technology, my classroom will make a huge impact on learning.

Students get excited about using technology and it will make the difference with a child and how engaged they are in their learning. Having technology, like chromebooks and an iPad, in the classroom is important because my students will have the guidance of a teacher while they are researching and typing their essays. My students need this technological experience to be ready for the demands of higher education.
