My Students

My students are amazing! They are quick to rise to a challenge and work together to accomplish their tasks quickly. When problems arise, they are not deterred. Junior high students, when inspired and have an intrinsic desire to learn, are some of the best examples of perseverance.

They are eager to use technology to enhance their learning.

I am constantly trying to learn more and to use technology in innovative, fresh ways, to introduce a variety of technological resources to students. By doing so, I am able to provide my students with opportunities to explore and innovate techniques to utilize technology in our classroom and in their everyday lives.

My Project

We need an Echo Show to heighten my students' educational experiences. There are many ways to use an Echo Show in the classroom to increase student learning. I want to emphasize the use of a classroom calendar to demonstrate organization. An Echo Show is a compromise for students that are wanting screen-time. They will be required to speak to receive the information that they want, instead of texting or typing their requests. An Echo Show requires students to verbally communicate to advance in their endeavors.

As a Social Studies teacher, I can have my students bypass an internet search by asking "Alexa" geography and civics questions, especially during the times when I am helping other students.

An Echo Show can be used the following ways in their classrooms:

research aid, timer, calendar, playing an audiobook, researching current events, translating different languages, and much more.

We are excited for the opportunity to utilize an Echo Show in our classroom.
