    Jumping into the 21 Century Classroom Classroom Project at Lord Nelson Public School

    My Students

    My students are a diverse group from our community in east end London, Ontario. My student love using technology but unfortunately don't have a great deal of access to it. We try using a BYOD (bring your own device) strategy, but less than half have their own device. We do have access to chromebooks - but they are shared within our large school and we only have on classroom ipad. We want to expand, document and share our learning and having more tablets in the class would help out greatly.

    How will this project impact them?

    We are set up as a SOLE (self-organized learning enviroment) and while I do teach in front of the class sometimes, I try and turn the learning over to the students as much as possible. For that they need to research, and the best research tool we have is the internet. Having a tablet at each work table to be shared in the group would help with that. Also, being able to share their ideas through multi-media presentation, pictures, videos, etc., would also be made possible with the tablets. And finally, we want to document and share what we've learned with classmates, other students and our parents and community. With the tablets (and apps like Freshgrade, Youtube, etc) we can do just that.
