My Students

Beyond meeting the students' expectations and their evolving learning modalities, digital learning serves to help students meet the requirements needed by addressing teaching quality, learning environment, and student outcomes in the classrooms.

When it comes to students from socioeconomic-disadvantaged backgrounds, digital learning tools help level the playing field.

Students with their own technology will have access to e-textbooks educational apps and programs. This gives students from disadvantaged backgrounds equal access to content from day one of their course if they are unable to get the necessary books that are required. This also cuts the cost of paper and printing. Digital learning tools and e-textbooks also impact the flexibility the teachers have in the classrooms and can better facilitate distance education. This allows students of all ability levels to learn in ways that best suit their needs and learning styles.

My Project

Technology is everywhere -- entwined in almost every part of our culture. It affects how we live, work, play, and, most importantly, learn. With mobile and other wireless devices becoming an increasing requirement across every industry today, it only makes sense that our schools are also effectively deploying mobile technology in the classroom. Chrome Books are a great piece of technology to use in the classroom. There are two main reasons for this. Having Chrome Books will help prepare students for their future careers. Integrating technology into the classroom is an effective way to connect with students of all learning styles. It gives students the opportunity to enhance the interaction with their classmates and instructors by encouraging collaboration.

Using technology in the classroom gives teachers and other faculty members the opportunity to develop their students.

Integrating technology in education helps students stay engaged. Most students today have been using mobile devices like tablets and smartphones to play and learn since they could crawl. So it only seems logical to align today's classrooms with the way that your students want to learn and are used to learning.
