My Students

I teach in an elementary school computer lab. Students in grades K-6 have weekly computer class. In addition, technology is being incorporated into the students’ regular classroom work as well.

You can see the excitement on our students’ faces whenever new technology is introduced into the classroom.

Technology is also a great tool for teachers as it allows us to easily differentiate our instruction for all learning styles and abilities. In my own experience, it has been a fantastic way to make math and science inclusive for all students.

My Project

Technology is no longer an accessory to education; it is an essential tool for learning. Students are growing up in a world completely integrated with technology. It is a part of their daily lives. The Dremel 3D printer would be used regularly in the computer lab in grades K-6. It would be used in conjunction with classroom projects in math and science as well as in our own curriculum involving coding, problem solving, and learning new software.

Transforming the concepts of computer programming, coding, and critical thinking into a tangible object the children can see and feel makes the experience much more powerful.

Mathematical concepts such as circumference, volume, area and perimeter, ratios and proportions can be given real world applications. The possibilities are numerous and applicable to many areas of learning outside of STEM as well. It’s the perfect tool to help math and science come alive.
