My Students

Describing my students isn't an easy task. Many would say that they are inspirational, creative and hard-working. They are all unique, unique in their interests, their learning, their abilities and so much more. What they all have in common is their desire to learn each day despite difficulties that they encounter.

Our classroom is amazing because we understand that everyone learns at their own pace.

As the teacher, I pride myself on making sure my students are always engaged, motivated and inspired to create their own learning.

My Project

The technology that my students and I are requesting will make our wildest dreams become a reality. For the majority of our students, this could be the only chance they get to explore the world beyond their immediate community. Google Expeditions is a virtual-reality teaching tool that I can use to bring virtual field trips to our classroom. With Google Expeditions my students can walk through museums, visit a glacier, and explore the deep oceans!

This project will help to improve my students' understanding of scientific concepts, geography skills, and concepts that can be difficult to grasp without a "hands-on" component.

By using Google Expeditions and VR, my students will see themselves as critical thinkers, scientists, geographers, and explorers. We will use these materials to help us to become life-long learners.
