I work with 2 different 4th grade classes and we make up the ATeam! They are working hard with all the new changes that are happening in the schools. They amaze me every day with how hard they work, not only in class, but outside of the classroom as well. More than half of our school is considered low income which produces problems with education (virtual and face to face), yet all of these students persevere and come to school ready to learn. I love each student because they bring something different to class every day. They care about everyone in class, as well as, me their teacher.
Trying to incorporate technology in the classroom is essential in today's learning for students. The VR technology will be used for lessons to "travel around the world", go to places that they have never been (virtual field trips), and also be used as reward for students. Students can discover different parts of the world and study the economics and compare it to other parts of the world.
Students in our district need access to to this type of technology because they do not have a lot at home.
Students in our district want to learn and experience things that other students get to experience; having an Oculus in my classroom will give them that opportunity.
