My students live in rural SE Oklahoma where the majority of the students qualify for free and reduced meals. Our school is a Title I School and we are constantly trying to expose our students to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Our goal is to prepare our students for the ever changing world so that they will be equipped to have an impact on tomorrow. Every student should have the opportunity to excel and I hope that with technology it will be another avenue to reach that goal.
There are so many times that students would like to probe deeper into a subject or a person we have been discussing. Having Chromebooks in the classroom will allow students to have their inquisitive questions answered.
The majority of my students do not have internet access at their homes so school is the only place to answer many of the questions they have about historical figures and events.
I hope it will inspire them to realize one person can really make a difference in our world whether it be in the field of math, science, government, social justice, etc. I know they are the future and we must learn from the past.
