My Students

Our students come from middle-class suburbia. We're located in a small town in northeast Ohio where Friday nights mean walking to the local cafe after school to enjoy a chocolate chip cookie and football. It's a town steeped in tradition, and our kids attend school in the same building that William McKinley graduated from and Ida Tarbell taught in.

Our buildings are (literally) historical markers.

And while this is amazing, it is often not conducive to learning and playing sports in 2017. Our athletes and students are adaptive and embrace the uniqueness of our school.

My Project

As our world changes, the tools we use with students change with it. Students need opportunities to share and demonstrate knowledge using video. The iPad continues to transform the process by integrating the key elements of digital storytelling – capturing photos, videos, and audio, all in one device. Using several apps, the iPad allows students to have a variety of options for how to create an effective demonstration of learning.

Digital storytelling is a powerful tool in the classroom.

Not only is it engaging but it is a way of communicating information in an authentic manner. Every story is unique.

An iPad can help students make deeper connections to learning.
