My Students

My class is special because they are all unique in their personalities, backgrounds, and learning styles. I have students from different countries, including India, China, Czechoslovakia, and Afghanistan, as well as students from all over our county. This creates an amazing environment to learn from those that are different than us.

The Swivl Project will allow me to create unique and enriching learning opportunities for all of my students, meeting their needs wherever they are academically.

Whether it's being out for an illness or just needing to hear a lesson again as they work towards mastery, having access to their teacher's instructional voice will support both students and parents in the learning process.

My Project

The Swivl is a unique resource for my classroom. It will allow me to video my lessons for students and parents. The Swivl will follow me around as I teach in order to capture the full essence of the classroom lessons and activities. An iPad must be connected to the top of the Swivl to record the lessons. The extra markers that connect to the Swivl are placed on students' tables for informal assessment purposes.

I plan to use the Swivl to enhance student learning and give extra opportunities for those students who have been absent or need additional support.

Often times, when students are absent they get behind in their work. The Swivl will help prevent this. They would be able to watch the lessons from home or during our enrichment block and complete any assignments provided by me. It will ensure that they are getting the full lesson and not just a short recap in order to catch them up.

The Swivl will be used for student support and for enrichment. I will be meeting with small groups during our enrichment block, and when students are not with me, they will have a lesson that is specific to their academic needs. The lessons will also allow self-paced, higher-order thinking for students who need enrichment. They will be challenged to push their thinking.
