Technology on the Move Part 1

Help me give my students the technology needed in the STEM classroom to interact with robots, collect data, and interact with real world problems without leaving their seats.

My Students

As a Science Specials Teacher at a Title I school I get a chance to work with students of all ages, color, race, and abilities. I teach students from 3 to 10 years old. 1,020 students is a lot of minds to touch for STEM education. Everyone gets a chance to learn and explore.

Being creative, becoming problem solvers, and coming up with different solutions to a problem is what STEM is all about.

This is happening all around us. The students are never too young to learn about the world around them. As the school year begins, they come into my classroom curious and eager to know about what is going to happen in my STEM classroom. They dont get a chance to explore throughout their learning normally. I peak their interest by saying they are going to get a chance to learn about themselves more as scientists and engineets from PreK-5th.

The best part of the year is when I get a chance to create a spark of interest to the students. They will learn how to ask questions, imagine a solution, plan for it, create a solution, and then improve on it.

My Project

Pictures and books are great resources for the STEM classrooms. However, technology is all around us. Technology can take us to the past and view the future.

Technology will allow the students to speak with researchers, collect data and present their solutions to their classmates, as well as learn a coding language to control their robots while collaborating with each other.

Being able to speak and present is something all students should learn and be comfortable in doing in the classroom among their peers. Being able to follow researchers on their journeys around the world. Asking questions through video chats or emails is a wonderful communication tool. Then taking it a step further, the students would be able to conduct their own experiments and record their data on spreadsheets, graphs, power point presentations, or even word documents to present to the rest of the class. All without leaving their seats.

The students are able to use a remote to control their robot Wall-E. They are able to assist with function and movement of the robot, but how about being able to take it a step further to program each movement with a computer language only the user and robot will understand. To have students own the movements and calculations needed to be made to have the robot come alive and perform tasks as they move. Laptops would help to do all this and more.
