Technology and Coding The Future

My Students

My school is a Title I school that consists of primarily economically disadvantaged students from countries across the globe. These students face a variety of daily challenges in their home lives, so time spent at school should be meaningful and memorable. My students show up to school every morning excited for what lies ahead that day.

Poverty can affect every aspect of a child’s development, limiting their personal, educational, and social development.

Despite the fact that my students may not be living in an ideal living situation, this does not dampen their love of learning. Students who may be living in turmoil find it comforting to come to class where there are opportunities to see the world from other viewpoints. My job is to expose them to opportunities that they would not experience in their home life. I want them to see the opportunities the world has to offer them.

My Project

As a teacher it is important to acknowledge that students are already interested and engaged in using technology, this creates many amazing opportunities for classrooms and teachers to benefit from integrating various forms of technology in their class and to make teaching and learning more effective.

For some students, early exposure to coding may open doors they may not have known existed.

When technology is integrated into lessons, students are more interested in the subjects they are studying. Technology provides different opportunities to make learning more fun and enjoyable in regards to teaching the same things in new ways. In addition, technology can encourage a more active participation in the learning process. Teachers can use different apps or online resources to enhance the traditional ways of teaching and to keep students more engaged.
