My Students

We're off to another amazing school year! I have a new group of students all ready to learn. Some will be graduating at the end of the school year, while a few will remain for two additional years. As the students enrolled in my special education program continue to increase, we have also had to increase the need for our resources. While preparing for the current school year, I've run into a small problem. I simply do not have enough technology in the classroom to provide to every student. We are pretty much technologically driven at our school. Between displaying behavior systems via apps, utilizing projectors and my teacher computer, we are still unable to provide each student with adequate technology.

We currently have two desktop computers to suit ten students.

Yikes! The tablets that we have are no longer operating as they once were, which is causing heavy frustration among my students. To help them out, I am going to introduce them to new computers, with newer programs, that will continue to support their learning. So now, we are taking our talents to Google for help!

My Project

We are slowly building our technology in the classroom. The only problem is that there are 12 students and we need to act a bit faster than normal. While we have fully adapted to the rotation method, there still aren't enough tablets/desktops to accommodate even our small groups. With the Google Pixelbook, students are able to ask for immediate assistance with educational tasks when working independently. Added teacher bonus, we can provide information on the Pixelbook that are teacher approved!

The ability for my students to be able to ask a question and receive immediate feedback through technology is the best feature of this resource.

Many times during instruction, students want to know more! While this is great, there may not always be time to continue the discussions due to scheduling. With the Google Pixelbook, students are able to ask the Google Assistant for assistance with definitions, questions relating to classroom discussions, and also receiving math examples while working independently.

The opportunities with this project are endless and limitless for students. They are able to experience a much quicker operating system than their previous computers. While this may be a small feature for some, this is important for my students attention and focus. Also, this will help with our rotation plan as we can possibly have more intervention groups for students struggling in other disciplines.

We are truly embarking on a different experience with this project and we hope that you can help us facilitate the learning process. I want my students to always stay challenged with concepts so that they will be able to not only compete amongst their peers, but globally as well.
