    My Students

    My classroom has 30 grade 4 learners who love to create and explore. Last year we explored the world of coding and I was blown away by their creativity and willingness to problem solve. I quickly realized that my students learn best when they are give the chance to experience their learning in a hands-on way. I think by exploring the world of Makey-Makey, I am excited to provide them with opportunities to collaborate, problem solve, explore and experience.

    How will this project impact them?

    My class has a variety of learning, social (difficulty working with peers and solving problems, and emotional needs (anxiety, lack of confidence). My goal for this project is to help develop my students problem solving skills in a creative, engaging and explorative way. My students emotional needs often make it difficult for them to work with others in positive ways. I want to five my students the opportunity to collaborate with their peers in challenges that engage them and promote problem solving. Many of my students have difficulty persevering through tasks and by using the Makey-Makey tools, I hope that my students will being to see their ideas come to life and feel successful. My hope is that they will them feel more confident in their abilities and ideas and will be more willing to try more challenging problems in the future
