My students are ten and eleven-year-olds with amazing inquiring minds. Their Gifted designation makes learning alongside them at San Tan Charter School a delight. They are ready to use their literacy skills to become informed global citizens.
Our unique setting makes a difference because we are able to serve this neighborhood community with an excellent opportunity for public education.
Teachers and parents strive to prepare our kids for the future. A future that holds promise for those who learn to think and problem solve.
Chromebooks are excellent tools for classroom discovery and collaboration. It is never the tool but the application that makes the difference. So many one-to-one computer and tablet programs have shown this. It’s not enough to simply give the students the tools.
Awesome technology tools have to be put into the service of learning.
They have to increase comprehension, retention, communication, or collaboration. Learners have to synthesize the information and interaction with others for technology to improve student outcomes.
We will research and discover the ideas we want to share. Our writing and publishing will be robust because we have productivity tools to push our learning out into the world.
