My Students

We have over 300 students, ranged kindergarten through fifth graders, in our school with various learning styles, cultural backgrounds, ideas, and socioeconomic status.

Our students are learning how to be more than just consumers of information and technology.

They are being empowered and encouraged to take risks and to learn from their mistakes. They are creators, makers, and inventors.

We are trying to design an Innovation Lab where our learners will be active, use technology, think creatively, and work collaboratively. We hope to foster engagement, academic rigor, and student responsibility by providing students with open-ended design challenges that promotes design-thinking. We believe in student leadership and an inquiry-based approach to learning, so we are constantly looking for ways to inspire them, to challenge them, and to develop them into lifelong learners. Many of our students depend on our school to not only provide them with an education but also life experiences as many do not have the opportunities at home.

My Project

Having a Dash robot and the Microbits will allow for different structures of learning in my classroom. These will be housed in our school's new Pride Innovation Lab. The Pride Innovation Lab was created last year to give all students the opportunity to create, design, and collaborate while learning essential STEM skills. This new addition to our lab will provide more opportunities for students to learn important coding skills.

My project will make a difference because, as I said before, these students are the digital natives.

Our classrooms are not yet at the level technologically to meet their needs as learners. This grant will help to close that gap just a little bit more.
