My second-grade classroom is transforming from a traditional classroom of instruction to a technology-infused classroom of collaboration and exploration.
At my school, students have a passion for learning, contributing to their school community, and solving real-world problems.
All of our school's students are eager to learn and have great potential. Our students deserve to learn skills that they can apply in their technology-rich futures and careers. I feel that providing opportunities for students to work with age-appropriate technology helps our students become better learners and gives them the foundations for a tech-infused future.
Students will be creating digital stories through stop-motion videos, and comics, with the help of LEGO pieces and Dot & Dash Robots.
In order to write with LEGOs, students have to be able to find the right LEGO pieces to bring their stories to life.
With the adjustable wooden storage containers, students will be able to categorize LEGO pieces into easy to find drawers. With an organized LEGO kit, more time can be spent on creating stories, and less time spent on digging for the right brick.
These tools will be used to support multiple 2nd grade classrooms, giving more students the chance to learn the excitement of writing through digital storytelling. Integrating this art form will support our 2nd graders in cultivating key skills like creativity, communication, and collaboration.
