Empowering Young Learners with Choices through Technology
School: Orville C. Krause Elementary School
I am a first-grade teacher, who uses technology to empower students with choices in how they demonstrate their understanding of concepts. I use an app on tablets called Seesaw for all of our assessments. The app allows children to respond by speaking, drawing, or writing. This allows all students to express their thinking without the limitations of their writing capabilities. Additionally, the tablets would provide a way to make digital word work centers. This would allow me to differentiate this center. I currently have a few tablets in my classroom, however, it would greatly benefit my students to have one-to-one technology. I am looking to purchase seven Amazon Fire Tablets if I receive this grant.
