My inner-city kindergarten students are eager to learn and share. For many of these students, this is their first official school experience. With this in mind, I want these students to continue to want to learn and come to school.
I want my students to still be eager and willing to learn after kindergarten and actually for their entire lifetime.
They come to school excited and curious from all different types of backgrounds and starting points. Given support and opportunities, they are all capable of getting a strong educational foundation that will benefit them their entire lives.
My students are going to use these technology resources to navigate through their first desk top computer experience. Even though children today are exposed to technology on a daily basis, young children still lack actual desk top computer experience. My students are extremely fortunate in that they will be receiving new desktop computers for use in our classroom this fall. The bad part is that they will be the exact same items that every grade level will receive, K to 12.
Kindergarten students benefit from learning computer skills on devices made just for them.
I have found that computer accessories designed especially for young children help students learn computer skills easier. It also makes it easier for me to support them in their learning as I can use the colors to guide them through the motions. Color coded keyboards and mice provide students a quick reference when deciding what to click and when learning a keyboard.
Decibel safe headphones that are smaller in size give students a chance to focus on the learning comfortably instead of fussing with over sized, loud headphones designed for everyone but them. I want students to learn how to use a desktop computer, but I also want them to use the programs provided to enhance their literacy and math skills so to do so they need to be able to stay focused. Luckily, with support & student friendly materials, students do learn basic mouse and keyboarding skills fairly quickly allowing them to enhance their education with online programs.
