My Students

Our students come from diverse backgrounds. Many families originate from overseas. These circumstances aid in cultural diversity, but it creates various struggles from day to day. Our classroom is limited in reading materials as well as everyday resources. Our media center is not always available for students to browse the shelves for exciting books. In the classroom, we try to provide as many books as we can, but we are limited. As a language arts teacher, I strive to do the best I can for my students. Asking our families for help is not always possible. I want to create the best environment for my students because it is what they deserve. We have already received generous donations to support classroom technology. Now, we need a safe and reliable storage unit to house and charge our Chromebooks.

My Project

Storage, software, online tools, and other technologies help students hone basic language skills that they can later apply in authentic social settings. By students having these Chromebooks, I as the teacher will be able to monitor and control the website they visit. I will also be able to control what they see on their screen, to make sure they are always on task and understanding the material presented to them. The students will be able to translate the learning material and add their own notes to the learning material, saving it and being able to review it later on. Students spend most of their day listening and not interacting with the foreign language as much. But technology mixes things up, captures students' attention, and engages them in a way traditional classroom instruction doesn't. These Chromebooks will be useless without a safe and reliable storage unit to secure and charge them in each night. I want this technology to last as long as possible.

Educators strongly recommend individual computer programs and other technologies because they say they accelerate the acquisition of phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and reading-comprehension skills and other language building blocks in English Language Learners.\

The key is to use technologies that allow learners to focus in on text and to engage with real-life audiences and issues. The biggest problem related to English language learning is not so much developing oral-conversation skills but gaining academic written-language skills. One of the things that has been shown is that when students talk about things in online discussions, they use more complicated vocabulary because it is easier to see what's been written by others and incorporate it into their own writing.
