My Students

Understanding what is in books is easy, but my students want hands on fun gadgets to work with. They want to soar like eagles into accelerated learning.

My students are Second Graders that have been accepted into the Gifted and Talented academy for our district.

Being young and identified as gifted they should be challenged in academics and technology. Most of my students do not have computers at home, which means students need to learn about technology and resources in the classroom. Students learn how to work collaboratively with each other through online resources, but are also provided some opportunities to have fun with technology.

My Project

Dash & Dot robots are hands-on learning tools that teach creativity, problem solving, and coding to children in grades K-5. Children can see their code come to life in a real-world, hands-on way that engages them fully in the concepts they are learning about. As robotics and computers become increasingly prevalent in students’ lives, understanding programming concepts is becoming very important for students’ success. Students will work in small groups to develop their collaboration and communication abilities as they learn valuable 21st century skills. Help our students get introduced to STEM early and and cultivate their skills for the opportunities of today’s world.

Students should get all the opportunities to play and learn with technology while they are younger.

This way when they become older they can create the new technology the next generation will use.
