My Students

My class is a sixth grade in a middle school of 6th through 8th graders.

My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions!

They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically.

By using photography and video, they will bring their student projects to life.

My Project

Students will use the iPads to take photos and video to incorporate into their presentations.

Students use the iPads as video cameras, audio recorders, and multimedia notebooks.

Students become creators, not consumers. Students are developing IT skills that they will need when they enter the workforce.The sit-stand desk adjusts smoothly with a push of a button so students will be situated perfectly to address their peers. The adjustable table will be used during presentations, and excite the participants.

One the projects are done, students will use the adjustable height table to access the laptop and how us all their hard work.
