I teach technology applications and introduction to programming to 4th thru 7th grade students. My students are unique in their own way. They have a high interest in technology at school and at home.
Their gifted and talented skills help them go beyond the basic use of technology.
A challenging activity makes my students strive to work harder. “What are we learning today?” they ask. Learning new things bring excitement to them each day they enter my class.
It is a joy to work with my students because of their high interest in technology, and I like seeing the results of their creative products. My students are the future productive citizens of the digital age!
Some of the class time in the computer lab is spent stopping the lesson to get a few students caught up with the rest of the class. This can have a domino effect because students who are on point can get behind by trying to help those who are behind in the lesson. We are appealing for funds for LanSchool, a software program that assist the teacher and students by managing computers to help utilize time.
This program has been proven to improve communication with both the teacher and students.
LanSchool allows the student computer screens to be viewed by the teacher as well as sharing a student computer screen with the entire class to ensure comprehension of the assigned task. The teacher computer screen can be shown to each student computer screen. This allows for everyone to be on the correct assignment or instruction at the same time. The student can send a text to teacher computer screen if he or she needs help or vice versa. A student computer can be controlled by the teacher to help with a task.
With a big focus on Internet safety, Lanschool can help the students to be safe because it allows the teacher to control access to certain websites. Assessments, polls, and collaboration can be done through LanSchool, so there’s no waiting on data results or answers. Through Donor Choose, students will have the opportunity to maximize their digital learning experience by maximizing time and finding ways they can give back to their school or community.
