    My Students

    I teach a group of diverse grade 5 students who each have a different learning style . As a teacher, my first goal is to unlock the potential in all my students. I believe that my students can do anything and there is no sealant on their potential . I believe in building a relationship of trust and helping students build a growth mindset. We are a Google classroom that believes in sharing our learning with a one another by providing feedback, collaborating and discussing our learning goals.

    How will this project impact them?

    Our school goal has been to implement formative assessment practices more effectively. In order to do this, students will be using features of Google, such as Docs, Drive, etc, to communicate and reflect on their learning. We will be focusing specifically on our learning intentions and core competencies to help students take ownership of their own learning. I believe that students will be able to take the feedback given to them by their peers and teacher and identify their strengths and areas of growth. Having access to reliable technology will not only allow my students to grow as learners but also instill a belief that they can achieve anything if they are active and in charge of their learning.
