My Students

My students live in a small community in Central Ohio. Over 56% of our students are living in poverty. Our school, like others, is trying to provide our students with the best education possible and help set them up for lifelong success. We have been doing this by trying our best to teach to different learning styles, by individualizing learning and incorporating technology and project-based learning whenever possible.

My school has recently switched to a hybrid educational model to engage, challenge, and enrich our students in the learning process through technology and project-based learning curriculum.

Students are constantly changing and so are we.

My Project

I teach in a low income school where the students tend to lack a lot of life experiences. They do not travel a lot as they do not economically have the resources to do so. I have found that these lack of experiences sometimes hurts the students as far as connecting to material. Just recently I have been introduced to VR and realized it was quickly what my students and I needed. My students can have the experiences they are lacking without even leaving the classroom. This will allow them to connect more to my lessons. I then would like them to take these realistic virtual field trips they have gotten to encounter and turn them into digital stories to incorporate LA into Science. Digital storytelling allows the students to organize what they have learned and synthesize it. I think this project will truly have a positive impact on my students and I can't wait for it to come to life.
