Teaching with Technology

My students need a laptop to enhance our curriculum in all areas.

My Students

Incorporating technology into the classroom environment motivates students to learn.

Our intermediate school includes grades 5 and 6.

My fifth grade class is full of energy and eager to learn. Our class has 24 students with a range of learning styles and abilities. We also have students new to the United States who are learning English as a second language. The students in my class enjoy helping each other learn and the use of a laptop would be beneficial in their learning process!

My Project

The possibilities for using a laptop in my classroom are endless. A laptop will allow my students to actively engage in their learning. With this laptop, I will be able to present new material in PowerPoint presentations that will capture the students' attention and make learning fun! I will also be able to plan daily lessons based on interactive websites. Students will greatly benefit from having a laptop in the classroom in order to become more actively engaged in lessons. Not only will the laptop be used to enhance teaching, but also for the students to use. They will be able to learn how to create word documents and PowerPoint presentations to share with the class.

A laptop can be used in all areas of the curriculum to ensure student success.

The laptop can enhance our curriculum in all areas. With the new standards, it is important to familiarize students with the use of technology. I look forward to instilling a love of technology in my students!
