My Students

My students are learning in many different environments. Besides homes and apartments, some of my students are living in shelters and hotels. Those circumstances alone makes learning difficult. I have students being taught by grandparents and even great-grandparents who are not very familiar with the current technology trends. Some students have parents who are working tirelessly outside the home, and others who spend the day taking care of younger siblings. Parents are being asked a lot these days and can feel overwhelmed with it all!

I want my students to have every opportunity available to them that will improve their chances to succeed while distance learning.

I know my students will rise to the occasion despite the obstacles they are faced with on a daily basis during distance learning. My students are hardworking and determined! With support and loving guidance, they can and will do amazing things!

My Project

Digital learning has become our "new normal" and while my class is embracing the challenge, many students are falling through the cracks. As a teacher, I can see the eagerness in children's faces as we connect digitally. I know my students need to continue to feel engagement through online learning. My fabulous students have been more than cooperative as I use a computer with a camera and audio that cuts in and out.

With the use of these much needed technology tools, I can connect my computer and iPad together to create videos, use online whiteboards, and communicate digitally with each student.

The iPad will serve as an online whiteboard. The pen will be utilized during lessons to write, draw, underline, circle and more!

The lesson on the iPad screen will pop up on their screen as I am writing and drawing to help engage learning. Once we eagerly return to school, the iPad and tools will be used in small group learning. Students can engage with the iPad using the given tools, and create so much to show off all they have learned while distance learning!
