My Students

In today's day and age, my students learn in a variety of different ways. The impact that technology has had on today’s schools has been quite significant. This widespread adoption of technology has completely changed how we as teachers teach and how my students learn. Teachers are learning how to teach with a variety of technologies, while students are using advanced technology to shape how they learn. By embracing and integrating technology through the use of various programs in the classroom, we are setting our students up for a successful life outside of school.

My Project

Being a STEM school, our goal is to engage all students in problem solving activities using the STEM process. My students need a class subscription to Brainpop and Brainpop Jr. to benefit from the standards-based, high-interest reading, as well as the standards-aligned animated movies, that span all disciplines. Brainpop Jr. Is an online program that has hundreds of videos that my students can access that are tailored to each individual subject. There are short videos that explain language arts, math, science, health, social studies, and engineering.

Just think of how the atmosphere of a classroom would change if we had full access to all the information available on the Brainpop website.

It is often hard to find material that catches student interest and holds their attention like the games and other online activities they participate in outside of school. I would love to give my students access to this resource because I know it would be an engaging and stimulating way to hold student attention and help them learn about many concepts.
