Current Technology Status
This year and last, I implemented BYOD in my classroom, however, this year very few students have the ability to participate in the program due to lack of funds. My goal if I achieve the Chromebook Cart is to make things more equitable in my classroom when it comes to technology. Most importantly, I hope to better prepare my students for their futures through meaningful and engaging learning tools.
Current Daily Applications
Chromebook Cart Pontentials
In a 1:1 Chromebook environment, students would be able to write their rough drafts in class instead of first on paper and later transferring it. Also, students would be able to immediately share their writing with peers and start the editing and revision process much sooner.
Google Math Drawings
With 1:1 Chromebooks, students would no longer have to be in groups of 3-4 to complete these problems. Students are often crammed around our classroom computers/devices during this time. Students would be able to do their own problem and then share with others how they may have solved the problem differently. This quickly opens the door to collaborating with others and having students gain new perspectives from other students.
With 1:1 Chromebooks, students could do these online and quickly submit them using Google Classroom. They could also share their methods and comment on other student's work by using the "share" button in Google Suite. The commenting option in Google is a powerful tool to make our classroom feel smaller and close-knit.
