The definition of "Head in the Clouds" means to be daydreaming and not paying attention to what is going on but I see it differently.
My students are incredible!
I have 28 motivated English language learners eager to learn.
My students come from a low socioeconomic background with limited resources available. We are a Title I, Performance Improvement school with 100% free lunch program. Many parents work two jobs and are struggling to support the family. Though their environment may not be conducive to learning, they have an insatiable love of learning! I know that if we provide them with the right support, resources, and opportunities, they can experience success.
Keeping Your H"ed" in the Clouds is the new way to save information. "Ed"ucation is now using the Internet to save data in a universal "cloud" that is accessible from anywhere. Chromebooks don’t have Microsoft Windows or the Mac Operating System but instead run using Google’s (web-based) Chrome Operating System. Everything is stored in “The Cloud”, an Internet based storage location so nothing needs to be saved on a drive. The students will have their own password where their documents can be saved in the "Cloud". They can retrieve their documents from anywhere. Students can use the Chromebook to write and edit stories as well as search the Internet. They can use programs such as PowerPoint, Google Drawing, and Padlet to display their work.
The Chromebook will be used daily by all 24 students.
They can access their own Google docs in the "cloud".
It is like having their own personal computer. We will definitely keep our H"ed" in the Clouds with a Chromebook!
