Ms. Guidry from Maurice LA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Instantaneous Motivation: Class Dojo

My students need an iPad, a case for the iPad, a VGA adapter to present information from the iPad, a keyboard for the iPad, and a presentation pointer.

My Students

Motivating at the high school level can be tricky. With the use of Class Dojo, I feel that I can help lower behavior problems, and increase the level of learning.

My students are geographers.

They may not be full blown geographers yet, but my goal is to have them at that level by the end of the year. My freshmen class is the largest class to walk the halls at our school, which means a whole bunch of personalities all in one classroom. They are a very intelligent class, but have a small problem with behavior and motivation.

My Project

The possibilities are endless. I can only begin to imagine all the things my students will be able to do with an iPad, a keyboard and a presentation pointer in our class. The first thing that would be implemented would be the use of Class Dojo. We currently use this program for attendance, but with an iPad I would be able to track behavior quicker and with greater accuracy. This program also allows for positive reinforcement, which I feel can get lost at the high school level. This iPad with a VGA adapter could also be connected to our projector which would make presentations on countries more engaging. With more technology in the classroom, research could be done more frequently and presentations could become a regular in our class.

I feel that my students could benefit from this project.

The mention of a behavior point system with rewards for positive behavior perked my students ears. I hope that through this project I am able to show the entire school how technology can enhance classroom environment.
