My kindergarten students are enthusiastic learners, leaders, explorers, and compassionate friends.
One day, they will change the world.
For now, they are five and six year olds from diverse cultural, socio-economic, and linguistic backgrounds who deserve every advantage they can get on their path to academic success. For several, kindergarten is their first experience in a school setting.
These children deserve to meet their full potential and experience academic success. This project could be a game-changer by supporting language and literacy learning.
A Microsoft Surface Go would be perfect for my kindergartners who are just beginning to learn how to use computers. Most are very comfortable using a touchscreen so this is a great place to start their technology education. Currently, our class only has access to computers through their once a week technology class. Giving students the ability to explore and practice using technology skills is an area I would like to expand upon in my classroom.
Daily access to a computer would mean that students could use a variety of educational websites to support their learning in multiple academic areas.
For example, students could listen to and read along with books. Students would be able to add to their student portfolios online so that parents could view what we are learning about in the classroom. The touchscreen would also make it very easy for students to support their math skills with online manipulatives. Our weekly science and social studies magazine has interesting online games, videos, and stories that students can access. The possibilities that a Surface Go would bring to our classroom really are endless!
