My Students

We have many students who live in poverty and do not get much educational support from home. Therefore the time at school is critical to ensure the students gain all the tools needed to be successful! We work with a lot of alternative learners on the spectrum and diagnosed with ADHD. My goal is to help every student exceed their own expectations and gain a love for learning and reading.

Keeping students engaged is paramount to their learning and their retention.

This is why it is so important to find every tool possible to incorporate into the classroom.

My Project

All of our students learn in different and unique ways. Using games in the classroom allows students to take advantage of their unique talents to learn. My students work in small groups for instruction. It is a challenge to find out of the box gaming ideas to pull students into their learning, that are also hands-on; especially in math. I have noticed that they learn best when they don't even realize they are learning.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their lesson when there is a physical and fun game involved.

The product that I selected will give students the hands-on activity they need, while also reinforcing the skills they are learning in a game form. The Qball will be extremely beneficial for students who are also kinesthetic and auditory learners.

I have seen the positive effects of choosing unique ways of engaging my students in their learning through technology and games.
