My Students

My students are growing in their interest and ability to innovate. Although they may be at different stages of innovative thought, my students share at least two traits. My students are amazing people! They are eager to design and build their own unique experiences and they are interested in learning and applying new tools.

Our Charter school has a mixed population of 64% Title I (unduplicated count) students from predominantly urban settings.

Students of all races and a number of ethnic backgrounds work together in a safe and secure environment. Our school demographics are as follows: 3.8% Asian, 31.2% Afro-American, 30.1% Hispanic 5.9% multiracial, and 29.0% White. Students at our school are motivated and enthusiastic when given the opportunity to show their inventiveness and talents.

My Project

My students will be working on producing virtual field trips this term. Right now we are working students sharing classroom experiences with video. We hope to transform these videos into VR experiences for other students and the general public and begin to learn how a classroom might add to the growing body of virtual media that exists on the web. At present, we are using Google Maps and video from cell phones to try and get the best media possible. A 360 camera would allow us to exponentially improve what we are capable of doing. Our class is extremely excited about the possibilities of this work!
