My Students

"Technology can become the 'wings' that will allow the educational world to fly farther and faster than ever before-if we allow it." (Jenny Arledge) Access to technology will further student learning exponentially and facilitate differentiated instruction to meet the diverse needs in our classroom. Learning has to travel beyond textbooks and the library.

My third-grade classroom resides in a STEAM school in Gilbert, Arizona.

The students come from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds. My students thrive on computer technology and they are motivated to learn with the use of online educational resources. They enjoy collaborating with their peers on research projects, exploring computer programming with the Hour of Code and Scratch, and engaging in individualized instruction in subject areas across the curriculum using programs such as Zearn, Read Theory, Ed Puzzle, and Prodigy.

Access to technology allows my students to satisfy their insatiable curiosity and take control of their own learning paths. With the use of technology, my students will be able to expand their expertise in all content areas and work efficiently and effectively during our remote learning time.

My Project

Chromebooks and iPads are helpful learning devices to enhance academic concepts taught in our classroom and at home as they are learning remotely. The volume, however, hinders learning when headphones are not available. My students use Chromebooks and iPads daily, and headphones would allow them to work independently on varied assignments without audio distractions from their classmates and other distractions at home during remote learning.

My students need access to headphones, so they are able to work independently on varied online websites to differentiate their instruction for optimal student growth.

By differentiating instruction, students are able to drive their own learning on varied avenues for acquiring academic content. Headphones would be a benefit to all students and they would allow them to blend technology with standards-based instruction to maximize academic success.
