My Students

Current online digital reading resources have motivated students to identify and brainstorm solutions for current health problems. Classroom conversations have become learning opportunities. Over the past 4 months, I noticed students pushing to communicate with peers and adults about health and public safety. Our school is populated by motivated kids in a high-needs neighborhood. Many students start middle school with little to no hands-on access to quality digital materials and technology.

Our computer lab environment constantly supports creativity in various formats and mediums, a student-centered hands-on creative space that allows students to communicate messages, and ideas through design experiences with quality materials and instructions.

Students apply personal creativity, and quality reading materials, to become creative real word problems, solvers. Students' outcomes are to be responsible for expressive use and applications of digital art design materials along with reading, writing, and analysis skills, to solve problems in the school and the local community.

Students need opportunities to generate creative modes of problem-solving. The technology and skills they get exposed to help support their move towards becoming productive members of an evolving digital workforce.

My Project

Students have been reading a stream of current articles on public health issues, in NewsELA. The students are now ready to collaborate, apply personal creativity and digital skills, to solve real-world health problems.

The iPad Pro will make a difference in my student's learning by allowing students to use quality technology to develop digital collaboration editing skills.

Students will start drafting posters with fact-based details and solutions. First, traditional drawing skills are promoted and they later move their ideas onto Web 2.0 digital design applications. The students will then be applying updated ideas to the digital posters as the project progresses. The final student work will be posted on the classroom blog to communicate with parents and the school community.
