My Students

My students are from a high poverty area and have very few things to call their own. Their families often work and don't have time for hands-on projects, which will help with understanding new concepts. Every time we do a hands-on experiment, their eyes light up with excitement.

I want my students to become whatever they want to be when they grow up, but they need to have all different experiences to decide what that is.

I hope with new exciting projects they will have a better chance in the world!

My Project

I will use these iPads as more of a virtual whiteboard to improve the students learning as they are answering problems. Nearpod is one app that I can create or use pre-built assessments to improve my teaching of these students. They can show me what they know with just a simple a push of a button, without their neighbor copying them.

The best learning is the students teaching the teacher!

They can let me know where their holes in learning are and I will adjust my teaching daily, which is the best way to learn. I will use precious time more efficiently and make my students into superstars!
