My Students

Remember how much fun it was to play on the computer? Help motivate students through technology and the endless opportunities it presents to find information. Many students are familiar with technology, but most do not understand how it can be used as a tool. Let's get them excited about learning!

The fourth-grade students in my class are a diverse group of learners with varying abilities.

They attend a publicly funded charter school in Arizona. The students are growing into lifelong learners who love to explore and learn in new ways. They are always looking for more information on the topic at hand, from life science and the Middle Ages to algebra! These students are highly motivated to learn and are fortunate enough to be in an environment that encourages a hands-on approach to education. Technology is intriguing to them, and they jump to use it at any opportunity!

My Project

In today's world, technology is a way of life. Everywhere you turn, people are using their iPhones, iPads, and computers. It is essential that students are taught how to use technology for learning. In the classroom, laptops would be useful in many ways. Students would be able to use them for research on science and social studies subjects. They could use the information they find to create presentations for the class. The laptops would also be great for both math and reading centers. With so many programs available, students will be able to reinforce the concepts they learn during their center time and free time. Technology, such as Chromebooks are a great tool for students to learn at their own pace and in ways that make learning fun and exciting!

With the limited technology we currently have in our classroom, it is difficult for students to really get a handle on how helpful computers and technology can be.

With these Chromebooks, educational tools will be accessible daily. I believe it will help to show them that learning can be fun! Not only will the laptops be useful tools for this year, but in the years to come as well. Students will be able to take the things they learn and use them in the future - that's what it is all about!
