My Students

Have you ever had to stand in line in order to use a computer? Right now my students have access to 2 computers in our classroom. We would like to have 2 more computers so we can use the ever evolving technology available in order to complete assignments. More computers=differentiated lessons.

My students are fantastic Fourth graders who are striving to achieve their personal bests.

They attend a charter school in the suburbs of Detroit in order to get the best education available in the area. They work hard to complete above grade level work; however, they must overcome the challenge of technology while learning difficult curriculum. They would love to use engaging activities on the internet in order to deepen their understanding of content knowledge. Right now they are like sponges, ready to absorb anything they are exposed too. However, they need the equipment in order to have that exposure. Please help my students climb to new heights through the use of technology.

My Project

Students will be using the netbooks in order to complete online learning. Core subject areas at above grade level expectations will be explored. Students will use the internet in order to understand the challenging concepts. This could include but is not limited to videos, forums, wikis, blogs, online articles, etc. By using the netbooks, students will be challenged not only with the curriculum but also with the new technology. Specifically, students will use the netbooks to blog written responses to literature. Students will then respond to others in the classroom in order to expand their thinking. Students will also use the netbooks to research state projects. Research from the internet will help students develop a multimedia report for a given state. The netbooks will not only help keep my students updated on the latest learning methods of content material but also the evolving technology. Clearly, the netbooks are a win-win for my students this year and in the future.

Obtaining netbooks for students is important so that I can push every child to their fullest potential.

Every student is at a different level, and netbooks can help me differentiate so that lessons meet all students at their personal level. Netbooks will also give my students the opportunity to correspond with their classmates and the internet world. Netbooks will help build communication skills as well as content knowledge. Help me be a better teacher by supplying my students with netbooks!
