My Students

My students come from all over the world! We are fortunate to be in shadow's distance to a major university which provides us the opportunity for our students to learn alongside a very international and diverse group of friends. It also means that we have an ever changing level of abilities and expectations within our classroom walls. A typical day in my classroom involves a lot of movement and discussion. We are an active group and are constantly exploring the curriculum through experimentation and personal interaction with the world!

My Project

Our class currently houses a few desktops and a shared Chromebook cart. As the need for technology grows within our school, these technologies are more in demand by other classes and not always available for our daily use. With the addition of this iPad Mini, I am hoping to provide a very portable option for listening to ebooks, recording reading fluency passages, and practicing math fact fluency through a variety of researched apps and websites. This will allow students to work throughout the room and utilize digital offerings not before possible. The option to record fluency passages in particular is of interest to me so I can track and aide in specific measures leading to individual growth. I love hearing my students read, but sometimes I wish I could have "another listen" to see if there was anything I missed.

This technology will also allow the students to take pictures for online portfolios and research projects.

I am not currently able to utilize the portfolio learning method due to a lack in technology that has this photographic capability. This will allow for students to share with their parents their progress and provide personal pride in that communication method.
