Launch Group Work Into Cyberspace With Rocketbook Beacons
Help me give my students Rocketbook Beacons to convert their regular, portable whiteboards into smartboards so they may capture and share their writings as well as ideas and notes quickly and efficiently.
My students live in East Palo Alto, Redwood City, San Mateo, San Carlos, and Belmont. They come from various social-economic backgrounds.
My students are taking on the challenge of learning a completely different language: Chinese, in an area where Spanish is the dominating world language.
My students come in every day with high energy and are eager to learn. They often comment that this is the class they look forward to every day because it is fun and full of laughter. It is very important for my students to have fun while learning such a different and challenging language.
Creative and fun activities are an integral part of our lessons to provide students the opportunity to "Shine" through their creative works! We utilize many tools, such as flashcards, whiteboards, whiteboard markers and erasers, poster papers, scratch papers for learning activities, as well as color markers, crayons, glue sticks, scissors, and other materials for creative activities.
In our Chinese class, students do a lot of group work on whiteboards, from practicing writing characters, planning their projects, brainstorm ideas, taking notes, and sharing their stories. However, at the end of class, students need to erase the board so that the next class can use it. Students take photos if they can, but not everyone can access these photos of their great work. It's such a shame not to have a record of their thoughts.
Rocketbook beacons are a great new tool, that will allow my students to launch their dry erase into cyberspace!
Rocketbook Beacons allow students to capture, organize and broadcast important notes, writings, and big ideas on any whiteboard or wall surface in real-time. It will send their photos to a shared class Google Drive folder, which all students have access to.
