My students need 3Doodler Create 3D Pens and littleBits kits to become creative thinkers and problem solvers.
My 5th grade math classroom is a place where minds are challenged and growing every day. My students don't come from the best of backgrounds, so I make it my mission to let school be their escape from reality. I love getting to interact and push my students to develop through many learning experiences, but through the help of Donors Choose, I'll get to make such experiences even better!
My kids always ask, "Mr. J, how come you try to make math so much fun?" Well, what's the point of coming to school if you don't enjoy it?!
The world of education is ever changing, and our students need to keep up with the change. Unfortunately, our day is driven so much with instruction that students aren't receiving a chance to explore different interests and become creative problem solvers. What I plan to incorporate within our day is an activity period where students will have a chance to work on projects, code, design, and just be kids!
Instead of focusing so much on "the test," let's focus on preparing our students for the world they'll be entering.
My students are always willing to try something new! With this project, we'll be able to hit the ground running in the fields of computer sciences and engineering. The students will definitely be challenged, but they'll have fun in the process!
STEAM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. There has been a push to incorporate such programs in schools, but we've been a little behind. If we think about how much we use technology throughout our day, we should be required to have classes dedicated towards computer science.
"There are currently 528,174 open computing jobs nationwide. Last year, only 49,291 computer science students graduated into the workforce and only 35 states allowed students to count computer science courses towards high school graduation; Pennsylvania not being one of those."
The time to change is now! I want my students to have opportunities to become more complex thinkers by working with coding kits and using the 3Doodler Create Pens to create and design different gadgets. Your help would be greatly appreciated not only from me, but from my wonderful students as well!
