"From phones to cars to medicine, technology touches every part of our lives. If you can create technology, you can change the world." - Susan Wojcicki, SVP, Google. My students walk into our technology lab every day full of excitement and ready to learn something new. Today's technology in our world is changing each and everyday. Providing experiences with a variety of technology would help them to quickly adapt to the technology that they are around each and every day. They are always ready to try new things!
My students come from many different cultures, have different learning styles, and ultimately have different interests from their peers.
Using technology I can engage and motivate each and every learner in my classroom.
My goal is for my students to have as many experiences with technology as possible so that they will have the skills they need to be successful.
Our world is controlled by technology! Everywhere you go students are exposed to a variety of technology that they are expected to understand how to use on a daily basis. By teaching basic coding skills students will not only learn how to use technology but they will also learn valuable problem solving, critical thinking, and creativity skills.
As Bill Gates said, “Learning to write programs stretches your mind, and helps you think better, creates a way of thinking about things that I think is helpful in all domains.” The Kano motion sensors are a perfect way for students to expand their thinking and to take coding to the next level.
Instead of just playing with technology they can create their own games using the content they have learned in all subjects. These motion sensors will give students the ability to interact with coding in order to learn the basics of coding.
