As the school year began, I was moved to teach technology in my school. This was a job I was hoping for over the last few years. I am so excited about all the opportunities it will open up, not only for me, but for my students. My students are in an area considered to be lower income and Title I and most of these students may never leave this area.
I want to give these students the chance to see what the outside world has to offer and see the opportunities available to them.
They are so eager to learn and every day they come to class with a hunger to see what new technology tools are available to them. I am surprised everyday at how much they want to learn about the different types of technology and how much some of them already know and have begun to teach me as well.
My students are from a rural, low socio-economic area and the majority of students are free/reduced lunch. Many of them will never leave our area as adults. This project will help them explore possibilities outside our county, state, and country.
The STEM activities chosen will teach the students about cybersecurity, coding, building their own robots, and more. The headphones and webcams will help them record their own videos as well as have the opportunity to Skype with other students in different areas to discuss all the things they will be learning with these new STEM activities.
My students love technology and would enjoy learning more about STEM activities.
These activities would introduce them to a variety of STEM activities to better prepare them for later classes and hopefully spark an interest into more STEM fields. Help us make our STEMtastic classroom more challenging!
