My Students

Our school teaches students from pres-school to sixth grade. We recently have updated our technology program so that we are one-to-one. My students range from Kindergarten to sixth grade and we focus on learning basic technology skills up to preparing to move to the high school and eventually on to higher education. We try to use a variety of technology outside of our classroom computers to give students a well-rounded approach to the future! My students are so excited to use the new technology that I have in my classroom this year!

My Project

My students are constantly craving new technology to learn about. This will give them the opportunity to do just that!

The VR headsets will allow them to explore the virtual world with our iPods in class and eventually make our own VR software.

The tripods will help immensely in projects we need to take videos or photos on the iPods- this will help the students get crystal clear videos and pictures!

The sound bar will be a great addition to the classroom because it will help project sound further through the room so all students can hear videos loud and clear!
