My Students

My classroom consists of middle school students who come from varying backgrounds and face daily struggles. Despite this day to day challenges, they are incredible young adults that are enthusiastic, caring, and are are eager to work together to support each other in their eduction goals. Recently we have started using a new system called Google Drive and I would like to use in on a daily basis. Unfortunately, our school does not have nearly enough tablets to be shared amongst the students to run this program successfully.

My Project

Incorporating technology in the classroom will allow me to differentiate instruction to meet the needs of various learning styles. It has been my experience that students work best when they include technology to help each other in a positive collaborative environment. My goal is to use Chromebook to incorporate Google Drive into the classroom experience. Google Drive is an interactive program that allows students to provide peer to peer feedback while being able to do real time research and access the classroom experience. This would also help us facilitate learning when students are absent from school. Having these computers loaded with the lessons and resources they missed would make it an easy transition to return to class. It would also allow me to use multimedia approaches within my lessons.
