My Students

My fifth graders are experiencing education in a 21st-century classroom. I recently received a class set of Chromebooks. My students use Chromebooks throughout the day in every subject and use their Chromebooks to create, research, and communicate.

My students are eager to create!

They share their creations like stories and plays with one another on Google Classroom. They involve each other in their work. My students are always seeking new ways to engage and share their ideas.

My classroom now thrives on technology. Every day my students are improving their computer literacy. They use programs such as ST Math and Lexia to support their reading and writing. We use google classroom for communication and work submission. They take ownership and responsibility for their Chromebooks and their engagement has improved since receiving the technology.

My Project

My 5th-grade students use technology daily. Every subject students have the opportunity to use their Chromebooks. Students use their Chromebooks for collaboration, research, and projects. This is only scratching the surface of 21st Century Learning.

I want my students to create podcasts and presentations with their Chromebooks.

Microphones will allow students to create clear audio files for a plethora of activities. Students will have the opportunity to share their presentations to their class and family. They can also practice their fluency by creating audiobooks and sharing them with peers and other classes. By recording their writing, students are given purpose and they improve their speaking and presentation skills.

The headphones will allow students to work quietly with online programs such as ST Math, Lexia, and online audiobooks without disrupting their classmates. We listen to various instrumental music during independent work time. With headphones, students have a say in what type of instrumental playlist they listen to while they work, if they choose. Ultimately, headphones will limit distraction to other students.

I want my students to get the most out of their Chromebooks. With microphones and headphones, they have more opportunities to create and share with one another.
