Two years ago, I was selected to participate in Quest training which was a result of a county technology grant. At this training, teachers learned about the latest technologies that would benefit student learning. Then, monies were available to purchase selected technologies. Due to the large population of students at our school, some things were not purchased. I felt strongly that a CPS (student response system by instruction) would benefit my students, so I personally purchased the $1500 system with my tax refund. I have used it successfully now for two years, and I am always looking for new ways to utilize it in the classroom. I teach over 100 math students of varied ability, ranging from Academically Gifted to Inclusion. For example, this year, I teach a child with Cerebral Palsy. It will be very difficult for him to go to the board and show his work, or "peer teach." The CPS chalkboard that I would like would bring additional functionality to my CPS system, and would allow handicapped or extremely shy students to show examples of work from their desks. It is so important for middle school students to be affirmed and feel a part of the class. This technology would help me to insure that EVERY child has the same opportunity.
