Learning to Code and Be Safe While Using Technology
Help me give my students a chance to responsibly use technology and code by using Learning Resources Code & Go Robot Mouse Classroom Set and some books that will help me reinforce how to be safe while using technology.
Our school is a Title I school consisting of low-income children with diverse backgrounds and learning styles. Every morning, the students eat breakfast together in the classroom. From that moment on, their day is full of educational activities geared toward their individual learning needs.
I have a group of excited low-income students who thrive with hands-on active lessons.
They love to discuss what we are learning with each other. The students in the class care for and take care of each other. In many ways, this classroom is their family.
The books in this project will start the conversation of the roles and responsibilities every user of technology has with my class of first graders. We will discuss our digital footprint, online etiquette, and being a good digital citizen. Through the use of the mouse bot activities, my students will explore coding while also reinforcing concepts in other subject areas that we have been learning.
My low-income students will begin the road to equality as they explore coding and using technology responsibly.
Most, if not all, of my students do not have the financial means to go to expensive technology camps. Your generous donation will help me to provide a solid foundation and initial spark to start them on a life-long technology journey.
