Technology in First Grade

My students need a Chromebook to bring technology into our classroom.

My Students

Technology integration is not an event. It should be an everyday part of our classroom... like crayons and breathing. I have a classroom full of curious first graders who are constantly looking for new ways to learn outside of our classroom walls. A Chromebook is a great way to accomplish this.

I work in a small rural town with an amazing group of students.

We are a Title 1 Distinguished school where all of the students receive free breakfast and lunch. Our students work hard and we work hard to provide them with many new experiences and opportunities.

My Project

Some of the most precious time spent teaching in a first grade classroom is through centers. During this time the students are engaged in multiple activities and they are able to show what they are capable of. We try to include many technology driven activities during this time but the students constantly crave more. A new Chromebook for our classroom can help with this exciting problem. I can incorporate even more technology driven activities if my students had more access to technology. Our students love QR codes and a Chromebook is an easy way to use these in a classroom. We use Chromebooks for anything and everything possible. Weekly spelling words, math problems, listening centers, reading comprehension, and research projects to name a few of the possibilities are endless when it comes to this. A Chromebook can free up a child from sitting at a desk or table and allow them to work with technology freely in different parts of the room.

Even though a child can swipe their finger to use an iPad, saving files and file management are beyond their comprehension.

Students need to be taught how to effectively use the computer and internet to help with their learning and understanding of the world around them.
