Class of 2015
Autumn Deason - 1st Grade
What Autumn says about technology supporting student learning:
"By using technology it will help the students take ownership over their learning. They will be creating their own project to share with each other and well as the world. This makes them have pride in what they are doing."
Mrs. Deason incorporated the PicCollage app into an existing Noun and Verb lesson. Instead of a worksheet, the students created a collage of pics, sorted them into groups, and labeled the noun groups. For verbs, they made a collage of pics that depicted action.

Mahra Sanders - 2nd Grade
Ms. Sanders used the 30 Hands app with her students on her fairy tale unit. The students wrote and illustrated their personal fairy tales. To digitize the project, the students used the iPad camera to take pictures of the drawings and then record themselves reading their text. It was a perfect mix of paper and technology! Student creation at it's finest!

Devan Marrow - High School Math
Mr. Marrow had students formulate and solve systems of linear equations graphically and algebraically based on statistics of basketball players. Students used technology to visually show the different interpretations of solutions to systems of linear equations. They used iPad apps and computer programs such as geometry sketchpad to produce the graphs. Students then presented the findings in presentation tools such as Prezi or Google Slides and submitted them in an Edmodo virtual classroom.
